‘Beginning of Sorrows – First Three Seals’
Rev 17:4-5 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT,THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
2 Pet 2:1 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.
Destructive Heresies from the US
Once saved always saved
Causes Christians to be worldly and living unholy lives. Heb 6:4-6 stated that all those who had lost their salvation cannot be saved again with their names blotted out from the Book of Life (Rev 3:5, Rev 22:19)
Jesus coming is imminent
Causes Christians to be gullible in the last days. Hal Lindsey's books 'The Last Planet Earth' and ‘Left Behind’, the former being the bestseller in 1970, proclaimed the heresy that Jesus can come anytime. Rapture can only occur after the Great Tribulation (Mat 24:29-31; Mark 13:24-27; Luke 21:12-28; 2Thess 2:1-11).
Witch-hunting for Sins of Old
Causes Christians to feel insecure and condemned for their unknown sins before conversion and that they will not be forgiven if not confessed.
Christians – demon possessed
Causes Christians to doubt their salvation and their ability to serve God. Every Christian is the temple of God and cannot be defiled by demonic or evil spirits, otherwise he has lost his salvation. (1 Cor 3:16-17, 1 Cor 6:19-20)
Causes Christians to be worldly, covetous, carnal, selfish and unloving. Luke 16:15 For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.”
Observing Jewish Feasts
Gal 3:10-13; If any Christians cannot keep the whole Law of Moses (including circumcision, animal sacrifices, and feasts in the temple of God), then he is cursed.
Causes destruction to the faith of Christians by steering them to commit an abhorrent sin leading to death.
Rom 1:27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
Touch not the Anointed
Encourages church leaders to be carnal, worldly, covetous and heretic.
2 Tim 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers, and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
These so-called anointed false prophets who are famous, rich and powerful, mainly from the US, are teaching destructive heresies to massive congregations.
