Ten Reasons Why Jesus is Returning Soon!

by Eric Barger

Eric refers to this as one of the most important messages in his 31+ years of ministry. Fulfilled Bible prophecy is the focus here, in particular the extraordinary volume of direct prophetic fulfillments in modern times.

Consider that 2500 years ago the men of the tribe of Issachar knew the signs around them and how to respond (I Chronicles 12:32). Stressing the importance of understanding the times, Jesus Himself chastised the Jewish leaders for an ignorance of the signs in their day (Matthew 16:1-3).

Now, the voluminous nature of the signs indicate that the return of Jesus, our "Blessed Hope," is surely just ahead! Believers cannot afford ignorance during these exciting days. Do you know the signs?

Pope Francis' June Prayer Meeting - Ecumenism's Finest Hour?
When the Pope welcomed PLO leader Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli President Shimon Peres to the Vatican on June 8 it could well have been ecumenism's finest, or from a biblical perspective, its most sickening hour (see clip).

According to press reports, the vast majority of the Pope's advisers were against the meeting. But it appears that nothing will stop this Pope from his recasting of Catholicism. When one examines the identities of their "god" it is unthinkable that an orthodox Jew could pray in concert with a Muslim for they do not and cannot worship the same deity. Considering that last year Pope Francis left the impression that even the atheists were acceptable in God's sight (read "The Pope's Reckless Statement") then it is perhaps not shocking that Catholic Pope is now willing to lead prayer with a Muslim and thus intimate in doing so that Catholics, Jews, and Mohammadans all worship the same God (more on this topic here). In reality, Pope Francis' prayer meeting is a warm up pointing ahead to the one-world religion foretold of in Revelation 13. The Pope has chosen to ignore the sacrifice, uniqueness, and supremacy of the biblical Jesus Christ in order to appear the peace maker. If we are tempted to do so for expediency's sake, let's remember that peace at the cost of truth isn't really peace and that compromise of the truth - no matter how applauded by the world or how well intentioned - is an abomination in God's sight.

X-Men and the Gay Agenda

Like the X-Men? Have kids or grand kids that do? Think that Hollywood doesn't have a gay agenda? Then you must see Joe Schimmel's insightful video  "X-Men and the Gay Agenda."

* Warning: This video is disturbing and will shake up your fantasy world - especially if you think Hollywood is just producing harmless entertainment.

New Age Guru loses bid for Congressional Seat
If you've tracked the New Age Movement for long then you are aware of Oprah Winfrey's promotion of numerous mystics and occultists. Perhaps the most notable New Age guru Winfrey promoted during her days as queen of daytime TV was author and New Age teacher, Marianne Williamson. With Oprah's help, and through her writings and seminars, Williamson has been responsible for introducing perhaps millions to the trance-channeled teachings of now-deceased Columbia professor Helen Schucman and her book A Course in Miracles.

A few days ago Marianne Williamson came in forth in the primary election among Democrats and thus lost in her bid to replace the retiring Henry Waxman in California's 33rd Congressional District. Evidently not even California's so called "silicone beach" district is ready to be represented by someone as spiritually goofy as Williamson.

Update on The Shack - Movie Production Underway
I have reported for over six years now on the craze created by William "Paul" Young's The Shack (see menu here). Having heard the author speak on three occasions and also having met with him privately back in the Fall of 2008, I wrote that Young is perhaps the nicest heretic I'd met in many years. This nice, but misguided fellow rode the crest of some 89 weeks at either #1 or #2 on the New York Times Bestseller List (fiction) and, after navigating through a multimillion dollar lawsuit with his publishing partners, has finally arrived were he'd hoped to be all along - with a major motion picture deal.

In my 2008 DVD production "The Death of Discernment - How The Shack Became the #1 Bestseller in Christianity" I asked the question that if Bible believers thought that the confusion caused by Young's "Papa" character (a rotund, dark skinned woman presented as God) would be detrimental in rightly portraying who God actually is to the world, then imagine if the book every made it to the big screen as a film with someone like singer-actor Queen Latifah or Oprah Winfrey cast as God?

The Christian Post has reported that shooting will begin on
The Shack film this summer by Lionsgate Films. The headline read: "Oprah, Forrest Whitaker, Idris Elba to Star in Controversial 'Shack' Movie." I suggest that Biblical Christians prepare to give answers to Shack movie viewers concerning the Trinity and the nature of God. We should also prepare to discuss the biblical plan of salvation as well as a sound refutation of "Reconciling Universalism" which is the underlying theme of Paul Young's book.

We might also want to be ready to point out that there is no confusion about whom God is among the historical, orthodox Jews. From the beginning He has always been referred to in the masculine. He is also not to be represented in the figure of a human (or anything else according to Romans 1) as He is spirit (John 4), and He is not a she regardless of how confused many seem to be about gender today. 



God bless you and thanks for your support!
