False Christ Coming
A book by Warren Smith

Many church leaders believe that Antichrist is alive and well and in the world today.  But what is being left out of the discussion is how this coming false "Christ" has already mainstreamed his New Age Gospel and New Spirituality into the world and into the church. This book is a wake-up call to a church that remains strangely silent and in deep denial about the very deception that Jesus warned would come in His name (Matt. 24:3-5).  Become aware of what's happening, and then warn your friends and family (II Cor. 2:11). Purchase this book for $15 + $5 S/H.

  A two-DVD set produced by Joseph Farah/WND
based on the book, "The Harbinger," by Jonathan Cahn

Jonathan Cahn, the author of, "The Harbinger," has been shocking audiences by revealing the astonishing parallels between the fall of ancient Israel and current events unfolding in the U.S. -- what he calls, "An ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future and the collapse of the global economy."

Are his conclusions coincidence or God's final warning to America?

Find Jan's radio interview of Cahn here.

Order the two-DVD set here for $21 + $5 S/H.
Note from Jan: In over 30 years of watching the signs of the times, I have never seen such a convergence of indicators that reveal our time is short. So as we consider evil, take it to the next step: It heralds our times and it tells us that His return is at the door. The Bible says that a last generation will be "as the days of Noah." Those days were wicked and violent.

In the vernacular of today, George Soros is one evil dude. He's a puppet master. He's pulling the strings of almost everything that is wicked. He's one of the primary one-worlders. He has a war against good. He just does what is right in his own eyes even if that collapses nations.

The Most Dangerous Man in the World

by Jack Kinsella
May 15, 2012

George Soros was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1930, meaning he will turn eighty-two this August.  Soros likes to call himself a philosopher and a philanthropist, but his philosophy is the overspreading of Marxist-style S
ocialism and his philanthropy is limited to funding far-left partisan groups and causes.


Soros' main claim to fame (apart from his far-left partisanship) is as the "Man who broke the Bank of England."  In an interview with The Washington Post on November 11, 2003, Soros said that removing President George W. Bush from office was the "central focus of my life" and "a matter of life and death." He said he would sacrifice his entire fortune to defeat President Bush, "If someone guaranteed it."


To that end, during the 2004 presidential contest, Soros gave $3 million to the Center for American Progress, $2.5 million to MoveOn.org, and $20 million to America Coming Together. On September 28, 2004, he dedicated even more money to the campaign and kicked off his own multi-state tour with a speech: "Why We Must Not Re-elect President Bush."


Soros was defeated in his effort to prevent President Bush's re-election, an event that some suspect may have unhinged the guy even more than previously.  Soros was not a large donor to U.S. political causes until the 2004 presidential election, but according to the Center for Responsive Politics, during the 2003-2004 election cycle, Soros donated $23,581,000 to the various 527 groups dedicated to defeating President Bush.


One of Soros' big philanthropic efforts is the legalization of drugs, starting with marijuana, but not stopping with any particular drug.  On October 26, 2010, Soros donated $1 million -- the largest donation in the campaign -- to The Drug Policy Alliance to fund Proposition 19, that would have legalized marijuana in the state of California if it had passed in the November 2, 2010 elections.   


In 2008, Soros donated $400,000 to help fund a successful ballot measure in Massachusetts known as "The Massachusetts Sensible Marijuana Policy Initiative," which decriminalized possession of less than one ounce of marijuana in the state. Soros has also funded similar measures in California, Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Nevada and Maine.


Soros is also a big supporter of euthanasia and suicide legislation.  Soros funded The Project on Death in America, which sought to "Understand and transform the culture and experience of dying and bereavement."  In 1994, Soros delivered a speech in which he reported that he had offered to help his mother, a member of The Hemlock Society, commit suicide (his own mother!!). In the same speech, he also endorsed The Oregon Death with Dignity Act, the campaign which he helped fund.   


Soros started the Open Society Institute in 1993 as a way to spread his wealth to progressive causes. Using Open Society as a conduit, Soros has given more than $7 billion to a Who's Who of left-wing groups.  This partial list of recipients of Soros' money says it all: ACORN, Apollo Alliance, National Council of La Raza, Tides Foundation, Huffington Post, Southern Poverty Law Center, Sojourners, People for the American Way, Planned Parenthood, and The National Organization for Women.


Soros is an entrenched globalist who wants more power for groups such as the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF), even while saying the U.S. role in the IMF should be "downsized." In 1998, he wrote:  


"Insofar as there are collective interests that transcend state boundaries, the sovereignty of states must be subordinated to international law and international institutions."


Soros is a financial backer of Media Matters for America, a progressive (Marxist) media watchdog group that hyperventilates over any conservative view that makes it into the mainstream media.  Media Matters has made disrupting and discrediting Fox News its main mission. This, despite being a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt "educational" organization that is barred by IRS rules from participating in partisan political activity.   


Soros never heard of a left-wing cause he didn't like, and the more extreme, the better.  Anybody that claims a green agenda and advocates overthrowing the existing financial order can count on hearing from George Soros.  



Soros was the subject of a fawning Newsweek (actually, Newsweek sold for $1 and is now called The Daily Beast) interview conducted by John Alridge.  After all the usual left-wing accolades, "He Broke the Bank of England!"; "He Bet Against the Bush White House,"  they got down to business.


Sitting in his 33rd-floor corner office high above Seventh Avenue in New York, preparing for his trip to Davos, he is more concerned with surviving than staying rich. "At times like these, survival is the most important thing," he says, peering through his owlish glasses and brushing wisps of gray hair off his forehead. He doesn't just mean it's time to protect your assets. He means it's time to stave off disaster. As he sees it, the world faces one of the most dangerous periods of modern history -- a period of "evil."   


One might almost agree with Soros, except that the "evil" of which Soros warns is Western prosperity.


Europe is confronting a descent into chaos and conflict.  In America, he predicts riots in the streets that will lead to a brutal clampdown that will dramatically curtail civil liberties. The global economic system could even collapse altogether.


Alridge notes during his conversation with Soros that, "Riots on the streets of American cities are inevitable."  


"Yes, yes, yes," he says, (almost gleefully, says Alridge). "It will be an excuse for cracking down and using strong-arm tactics to maintain law and order, which, carried to an extreme, could bring about a repressive political system, a society where individual liberty is much more constrained, which would be a break with the tradition of the United States."


Soros denies any connection to the Occupy movement that he predicts will ultimately bring violence to America's streets, even as he funds the organization through his Tides Foundation, which directly funds the Canadian-based Adbusters who dreamed up and organized the Occupy movement through its Ruckus Society.


Ruckus, which helped spark the 1999 World Trade Organization riots in Seattle, was also listed as a, "friend and partner" of the Occupy Days of Action in October.


Where is all this leading?  Precisely where the Bible predicted for the last days.  The Bible predicts the rise of the Antichrist to global power via his control of the media and his influence over the economy.  


Revelation 13 indicates his control over the media is such that he can invest the False Prophet with the ability to cause everyone on earth to witness the same events at the same time. (Rev. 13:4,13)


The Antichrist will reject all existing models of government and finance and offer his own vision, which Scripture indicates will be wildly popular with the masses.  


Like Soros, he will oppose traditional values, like life, economic and political freedom, faith, peace, and especially, things that remind him of God, like the existence of Israel or the concept of America as the world's most Christian country.


Indeed, one would be hard-pressed to find another person in history more perfectly suited to the role than George Soros, except that at 82, George Soros is too old. But George Soros is only the window dressing for today's report.   


What I want you to see is how events of our generation exactly mirror the prophesied events of the last days.  Everything that Soros predicts, the Bible predicts.  Everything Soros stands for, the Bible predicts the Antichrist will embrace.  


"For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only He who now letteth will let, until He be taken out of the way,"  

(II Thess. 2:7). 


And everything Soros advocates, the Bible predicts the Antichrist will accomplish.   


It isn't George Soros.  But George Soros is the perfect model.  It is as if the enemy is moving the chess pieces, trying to decide if this is his time, and making sure the world is ready for him if it is.


Everything is in place and almost ready to hand over.  The only thing standing in his way -- right now -- is the Holy Spirit that indwells you.  Until He (together with the vessels He indwells) is "taken out of the way."


And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming," (II Thess. 2:7-8).
