NEWS BRIEF: "Interfaith Meeting Gives Birth to United Religions", by Richard Scheinin, Mercury News Religion and Ethics Writer, Mercury Center, San Jose Mercury News
" 'You are deputized!', the Rev. William E. Swing, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of California, told delegates as they prepared to go home. 'Tell the people that there is a United Religions, and that somewhere in the world, it is beginning to happen: that the religions are going to have an oasis where they can talk about peace.'[This conference was held June 23-27, 1997] "
We have been predicting for a full decade now, that the current Ecumenical Movement was a precursor to the global religion of Antichrist, which, according to Scriptural Prophecy, is to be initially headed the False Prophet. Before we go any further in our current story, we need to first quickly review some basic information.
1) The key Biblical Prophecy-- The False Prophet Foretold and Described
Revelation 13:11 -- "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast..."
This is the key Scripture which tells us that the 'Second Beast', following the First Beast in Revelation 13:1-10 [Antichrist] will lead the peoples of the entire world into a worship of Antichrist. Bible scholars have historically called this 'Second Beast', the False Prophet.
Further, we know that this 'Second Beast' will be a Christian leader, a counterfeit Christian leader; look carefully at the description given him, "he had two horns like a lamb". Of course, Jesus Christ is consistently referred to as the "Lamb of God" or the "Lamb which taketh away the sins of the world". [John 1:29, 36] Therefore, a lamb has come to symbolize the True Savior of the World, Jesus Christ. So, this passage holds forth for us a counterfeit lamb, a leader who claims to be "Christian" and who is accepted as such by the vast majority of the peoples of the world.
However, we know this Prophet is counterfeit and Satanic by the next phrase in Rev 13:11, "and he spake as a dragon". In Scripture, Satan is referred to as a "dragon" [Revelation 12:9], so we know that this False Prophet will be empowered by Satan, just as Antichrist is empowered by Satan. Later, in Rev 16:13-14, we see a picture of both Antichrist and the false Prophet being indwelt by demonic entities which appear to the Apostle John as green orbs [this is a common type of demonic possession, by the way, afflicting many in the New Age religion]. "And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty."
Now that we have established the Biblical Prophecy that foretells the existence of a False Religious Prophet that leads the world into worship of Antichrist, and now that we have established the Biblical truth that this false religious leader will claim to be Christian and will be accepted as such, we need now to review a most important, and pertinent part of the New World Order Plan. In NEWS1052, we reprinted the entire text of my seminar notes from a seminar given to members of the Boston of Theosophy, and to any "seekers" of spiritual truth. During this seminar, Bill Lambert, the New England Director of Theosophy, detailed the plan whereby the New World Order Religion would be established. Let us review the pertinent passages.
The name of this seminar, " POSSIBLE AND PROBABLE EVENTS IN THE FUTURE", was held at the Boston office of the House of Theosophy on 8/18/91. During this seminar lecture, Lambert gave many important and revealing aspects of the New World Order Plan to produce Antichrist and his False Prophet. Lambert revealed that the person had been selected to fulfill this religious leadership position, and it was none other than the Roman Catholic Pope!! Listen to Lambert's explanation:
"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. "
Thus, the Roman Catholic Pope has been selected to be the top global religious leader of the New World Order Religion!! This makes him the Biblical False Prophet!! But, what about the prophecy, in Rev 13:11-12, that he will be the same type of spiritually-empowered individual as the Antichrist? Fortunately, I had the opportunity to get this question answered, as well. When Mr. Lambert began his seminar, he stated that anyone could interrupt him at any time with a question, simply by raising his hand. Shortly after stating that the Pope would be the leader of the New World Order Religion, Lambert began to share with us that the Antichrist can only arise after a significant people could accept him. Lambert likened this acceptance as "being a proper receptor" for the Christ [Antichrist]. Quoting Lambert:
"Energies want to flow from the Hierarchy to earth to produce the physical manifestation of the Christ; but, such flow can only occur when humanity raises its collective consciousness to be properly awakened receptors." (Page 617-618, Externalisation of the Hierarchy, paraphrased by Mr. Lambert).
At this point, I raised my hand to ask Mr. Lambert, 'You spoke earlier about the Pope going to Jerusalem; when Lord Maitreya makes his appearance, there will be three types of people:
1. Those whose consciousness has been properly raised so they can readily accept him;
2. Those whose consciousness has been raised somewhat but not so high that they can readily and immediately accept him, but they might be able to accept him after further enlightenment;
3. Those who will never accept him.'
'What responsibility do the leaders of the world's religions have toward those members of their flock who are of group number two? Will they step forward to publicly urge group number two people to accept the Christ?'
Bill's answer was that the acceptance of the Christ was completely an individual affair.
At this point, Bill nodded his head affirmatively that the Pope was a proper receptor to
the Christ ."
The Roman Catholic Pope is a proper receptor to the Christ, the Antichrist!! This is an unbelievable revelation! And, since the Pope is a proper receptor to The Christ [Antichrist], and since he claims to be a Christian leader, and is accepted as such, he can Biblically fulfill the role of the False Prophet!!
Now, back to our story.
The Roman Catholic Church has led the global Ecumenical Movement almost from the beginning, and is very successful in bridging the gaps existing between all the religions of the world, including liberal or apostate Christian groups. But, now, the time has come to go public with the plan described above as 'The New Jerusalem Covenant Project', to the creation of the infant 'United Religions'.
Notice, on page 1, we quoted Episcopal Bishop Swing as stating that this United Religions Initiative would produce "peace" in the world. Any Christian who knows their prophecy would immediately sit up and take notice, because the Apostle Paul stated that the coming kingdom of Antichrist would come amidst proclamations of "Peace and Safety"
[1 Thessalonians 5:1-2]
"David Cooperrider, a professor at Case Western Reserve University's management school and a consultant to the United Religions project, envisioned both an institutional 'gathering place for discussions of the global good' and a 'Web-like structure' for projects, membership, and meetings around the world. Though Cooperrider studies and consults with 75 global organizations, including 'Save the Children' and the 'Nature Conservancy', the United Religions Initiative has inspired him like no other, he said. He described ``extraordinary momentum'' gathering this week. The initiative has raised $2.1 million in cash and pledges. The conference cost almost $400,000, with travel scholarships given to about 35 delegates. In the next 18 months, regional conferences are planned in Johannesburg, South Africa; Cairo, Egypt; and Delhi, India."
"This week, the 200 delegates established more than 20 task forces that will work in the next year to answer questions about United Religions' location, funding and organization: How will constituent bodies within the United Religions relate to one another, and how will a United Religions collaborate with other interfaith and global organizations? When the delegates convene next June -- Stanford may again be the location -- they will hear a series of ``white papers'' roughing out the United Religions mission and begin to establish priorities. Should they wrestle with population problems? The need for conflict resolution between religious groups in regional hot spots? The eradication of poverty?"
Is this mention of needing to accomplish "conflict resolution" the promise that the coming global religion, which will be the "spiritual equivalent to the United Nations", will be the only way to achieve "safety" in the world? If it is, then this United Religions project will have fulfilled the second part of Paul's warning, in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-2, that the disaster of the Tribulation Period will only come after people have been assured that the world has finally achieved "peace and safety".
This article then describes the various people that attended this conference as delegates:
1) Christian -- Catholics and Episcopalians are the only groups specifically mentioned
3) North American Interfaith Network [NAIN] You can find all sorts of Web sites for this Ecumenical group
We are attempting to get a complete listing of everyone who was a delegate to this conference because participation at this Antichrist gathering will be very helpful in identifying the true nature of such groups.
The United Religions Initiative Project identified still more people involved with this Project. We have listed them below:
"The conference participants, including keynote speakers such as Nobel Peace Laureates Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Ms. Betty Williams, and prominent Muslim Dr. Javid Iqbal, and international interfaith leaders ..."
"One day after this conference, the UN 50th Anniversary Worship Service was hosted at
Grace Cathedral lead by Bishop Swing. It took two years of hard work to plan this
one-hour liturgy. At both the Youth Conference and the Worship Service, the
United Religions idea was made public. After this events, it became clear that, to move the UR from vision to reality an ever-expanding network of religious and interfaith leaders had to share in a process of prayer dialogue and creative thinking about a UR. With this in mind, in September 1995, Bishop Swing addressed a gathering of religious Non-Governmental Organizations at the UN. The event was hosted by the Ven. Chung Ok Lee, a Won Buddhist priest and proponent of a United Religions for over 20 years. In October 1995, Bishop Swing visited religious leaders in China."
"From February through April 1996, Bishop Swing traveled in India, the Middle East, and Europe, seeking
commitment from leaders of many world's religions, including the Dalai Lama,
the Sankaracharya of Kancheepuram, Islam's Grand Mufti in Cairo, Mother Theresa, and the Archbishop of Canterbury, and with people active in interfaith work, including those at a conference at the International Interfaith Centre in Oxford. In July and August 1996, the Bishop visited with religious leaders in Japan and Korea."
Now, we learn that Bishop Swing enlisted the commitment of many of the world's religions, and that
Mother Theresa, of the Roman Catholic Church!!! It is no wonder, then, that Mother Theresa has been making trips to the Vatican to meet with Pope John Paul II, even though she is very old. She is evidently the point person in this global effort to unite the world's religions into One. Remember, in
NEWS1020, "GORBACHEV IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN EVER BEFORE! PART 1 OF 2", we discovered that Mother Theresa was representing the Roman Catholic Church at this most important conference of New World Order leaders. Do not be deceived: the Roman Catholic Pope is the Biblical False Prophet!!
"During the conference, each participant was asked to 'put yourself 30 years into the future.
The year is 2026. Visualize the United Religions you feel the world is calling for - a UR you,
also, really want. Visualize it as if it exists now. As part of your vision, imagine the variety and types of contributions the UR is making to the world.'
The discussions that flowed from this assignment reflected our deepest yearnings to live in a safe world that more nearly reflects the divine love for every being; a world where people respect and honor each other, serve the needy, and are caretakers of the earth and all its life; a world where religion no longer leads to hatred and violence, but to dialogue, the celebration of diversity, and cooperative action for global good. [Note: Now, you have the word for which we had been waiting: "safe". Just as the Bible foretells, this new United Religion is being advanced on the twin themes of "Peace and Safety". The time is truly growing short]
"The conference didn't end with dreaming. The participants were challenged to create a plan of action to help those dreams become a reality. That plan includes an effort to create a vast network of support and guidance by holding gatherings all over the world, in early 1997, to allow people from different countries, cultures, religions, and educational, work, and economic backgrounds to meet and help shape the vision of a United Religions. The voices, images, and commitments-to-action from these gatherings and other outreach efforts over the next year will inspire the charter-writing process to begin in San Francisco in June 1997."
The most effective way to achieve success in human endeavor is to set goals, called here "a plan of action". But, to drive your Plan of Action forward, you also need to set a timetable at which the various parts of your Plan can be expected to be achieved. This is simply good principles of management.
Therefore, we find it highly significant that the leaders of this United Religions Project have also created a "Timeline for UR 2000". We find it even more interesting to notice that this religious timeline is for the year 2000, which is precisely the year at which the political and business plans call for full implementation of their parts of the New World Order -- the year 2000!!! Thus, like all good complex plans, their timing is identical!!
"* July 1996 - 1997, the Initiative will engage in a global campaign using a UR workbook,
regional visioning conferences, and the Internet to enlist input and support for the creation
of a United Religions from leaders, on a global and grassroots level, around the world.
* June 23-27, 1997, the Initiative will host a conference, in Stanford University, California,
for 100 delegates from the historic religions and 100 representatives of spiritual and
other movements, to craft a charter-writing process.
* June 1997-June 1998, conference participants will engage their own communities in valuing progress to date, further refining the UR Vision and purpose, and in determining what role they wish to play in the creation of a United Religions by the year 2000. We imagine meetings being held both within faith traditions, and among them and other stakeholders to gather input for the charter-writing to begin in 1998.
* June 1998 - June 2000, the United Religions Charter will be developed and revised through
a series of annual June Charter-Writing Conferences. Between conferences, drafts of the charter
will be circulated globally for comments and revision. Work to create a broader and broader network of participation in the UR initiative will continue throughout the charter-writing process.
* June 26, 2000, the United Religions Charter will be signed, while a walking pilgrimage for
peace among religions takes place in villages, towns, and cities throughout the world.
Thus, in June 26, 2000, the United Religions Charter will be signed, probably in Jerusalem, in accordance with Bill Lambert's revelations, quoted above. It will probably be at this Charter ceremony, in Jerusalem, that the Pope will announce that all world's religions are one. Certainly, at this point, if not before, the Pope officially becomes the Biblical False Prophet.
Now, let us return to this story of the Interfaith Conference at Stanford University as they wrapped up their momentous conference that gave birth to the United Religions of the world. "The conference's last day began with prayers, one offered by three men born in India: a Christian, a Muslim, and a Sikh. The sunny courtyard outside was lined with flags decorated with religious symbols from a dozen or so traditions."
We could not find these flags but we did find a grouping of thirteen religions around the world that are involved in this global Ecumenical effort that has finally produced the United Religions. We have shown these religions, below:
1) Ancient Religions
7) Islam Religion
9) Magic Religions
13) Zoroaster Religion
The time is getting very, very short before the appearance of Antichrist, and the appointment of his religious counterpart, the False Prophet. 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.
God bless you.
This particular group concentates on enlisting the active participation of the youth of the world, which means that if your child is attending Public Schools, they will be indoctrinated into the values of this New World Order Religion.
