Welcome to God, committed to encouraging you to put God first, while viewing life through the window.

Now, in honor of the one and only true God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Let's join Wayne see Thomas for today's message. Welcome to the program.

My name is Brian Thomas I greet you in the name of our great Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is always a joy and honor and a privilege to join you each week. I want to thank you for tuning me with this. We continuing our look at the scarlet woman and scarlet beast of Revelation chapter 17.

Last week we looked at the fact that this Scarlet woman represents false religion, and often times when we hear the term false religion.

We tend to think of those religions that do not carry the label of Christianity. What were going to find today is that there are those who claim to be Christian. There are those who claim to be of the church but are yet in the false religion and the thing I like to stress the people because I hear sometimes people say I'm not religious, but I have a relationship with Christ instead and I get what people are trying to say. But the thing about it is it is okay to be religious. The thing about it is you must be a follower of the one true religion and that is followers of our Lord Jesus Christ.

So were going to do today I want to share with you as we go through the Scriptures. Some some troubling clips from two pastors that again are going to be examples of some of the things that we see coming out of churches that represents false religion and foes. Let me just make this clear that I do not enjoy doing these type of messages I'm not one of those that run to a fight. You know those type of people that when they hear about a fight, they run to it and there there cheering it on and then they go tell others about it. I'm not one of those. I don't enjoy. I don't get any any fulfillment out of doing this type of thing other than the fact that the Bible calls us in Titus chapter 1 verse 92. Encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it. That is what the Bible calls builders to do and so I am simply being obedient to the Scriptures, but again is not something that I enjoyed doing what I want to begin by sharing a clip from Bishop William Murphy. He is the pastor of the dream center church in Atlanta, Georgia and he is addressing the local assembly on the Supreme Court overturning of Roe versus Wade.

All right, architecturally, is in the crises. You do know America is going to hell right but my conviction is America can go to hell with me and my family living here.

I know that's not politically correct. I'm not supposed to say that and some people say will Bishop your man of God, are you pro-abortion role human and civil rights. It's my conviction that a man let's go here okay so let's all the guys. Let's all let's all set appointments to get vasectomies or better yet not show the vasectomy clinics down.

I don't nobody saying nothing and see one protester outside of the vasectomy clinic. I do see one.

What we want to legislate.

We listen, we cannot legislate morality that's that's why the church is in existence.

That's what is the separation of church and state that that's what the church. The church legislate morality. Government legislates the law of God right so women have rights to.

So I told you in the beginning that these are troubling statements and again this is the bishop. The pastor overcharging. He's addressing his congregation following the Supreme Court overturning of Roe versus Wade and heard him say that he is pro-human rights and he is pro-civil rights, and then he goes on to equate vasectomies from from uniformity and with abortion so that that shows how skewed his his logic years in which he's he's talking about doing something for meal operation. He's equating that to take in the life of a chow that is already developing in the womb and then he goes on to say that we cannot legislate morality.

That is one of the telltale signs of those who embrace and see in and when you hear statements like that when you hear the separation of church and state, which is not in our Constitution. I don't know how many times I've had to say that over the years but this is the common vernacular of those who try to justify Siena. So what we see here is a perfect example of again the Falls Church the false religion, and what the Bible calls the scarlet woman that we see in the last days we see it already in place today is going to continue into the great tribulation.

So were going to again look at Revelation chapter 17 verses nine through 18, but I want to read verses one through eight to catch us up in case you missed last week's Revelation chapter 17 verses one through eight reads then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talk with me, saying to me, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication in the habitus of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication so he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness.

I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and 10 horns. 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 on her for healing name was written, mystery, Babylon the great, the mother of harlots and of the abominations of the earth saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.

But the angel said to me why did you Marvel I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the 10 horns. The beast that you saw was and is not and will ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go to perdition and those who dwell on the earth will Marvel whose names are not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was and is not in yet years.

Heavenly father, we thank you Lord for this time together. We thank you Lord for your great holy word.

It is my prayer, Lord, that all things are spoken there to be nothing but sound doctrine. May you be honored and glorified in all things in your name Jesus. A man so to pick up the Revelation chapter 17 verse nine what the Bible tells us here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. This woman this this representation of the false religion.

She sits on the seven mountains now some suggest that this represents Rome as it is a city built on seven heals while others say the seven mountains represent seven kings. Now it is common for Scripture to use mountains to designate kings or kingdoms as what we see in the book of Isaiah chapter 2 but but what I want to really think you have you think about as we are looking at this year's wisdom as I want to take you back to again to this pastor, William Murphy as he continues to speak to the congregation concerning the overturning of Roe versus Wade right to tell you that some super religious person who got a bunch of sin in their life say what stillness is the answer where you can abstain and what kills me is people want to protest and already have one, you have one in your younger years and they don't tell me you are protecting the unborn. Because if you really pro-life, you wouldn't be cutting back funding for schools. If you're pro-life you wouldn't be fighting senior own machine guns.

If you really live in society for somebody is not a law is not in the military to have a legal right a constitutional right to purchase a clip that holds 100 bullets which are pro-life because I seen a deer shoot back dear saw me coming. Brandon ran for his life people out no block and start shooting myself against a deer this thing about this is about in this arrivals. This is just buffoonery. Would you hear coming from the school. It is all too common in churches today, but you can tell the spirits of this man who again has the title of Bishop has the title of pastor and he is giving all of the worldly talking points the things that you hear from those that are in the world.

He is knocking the idea of abstinence and what kind of a thing is it to say to someone who may say it is best to practice abstinence, meaning no intimacy physically until marriage, which is what God calls us to do to be holy.

What kind of responses it for anyone to then turn around and say what you didn't abstain. What will come of logic is that but that is what the world does and and so then he goes on to imply that those who have had abortions and are now pro-life are hypocrites because he said what you had one the ones who out there protesting you had an abortion in your younger years and I think to myself, well of course those who have had it and are now struggling and had the struggles and no what it brings in terms of suffering to the woman into the baby and in the womb. Who better to to share with others to say don't do it. Don't make the same mistake that I made, but according to him, you can't say anything if you've seen as according to this pastor. Following his rationale. I guess the apostle Paul could not preach because the apostle Paul was against Christianity. Remember, before he became Paul. He was sold and he was a persecutor of those who were followers of Jesus Christ. He had many killed at his orders for being a follower of Jesus Christ. But Paul went on to become the arguably greatest missionary in the New Testament and in so look at what we would all have missed out on in terms of of the word. If the apostle Paul would've taken the standpoint of saying well, because I did wrong in my past. I can't tell anybody else what to do.

This is the rationale for this pastor and this is the rationale of the world and this is the rationale of spirits that are not of God, and that is why we must have wisdom like the Scripture tells us here is the mind which has wisdom. It takes wisdom to see that people who are pro-abortion. Have you noticed that they also typically anti-right to bear arms and any points to these other things that you see those characteristics all flowing together and it takes wisdom to recognize those spirits that are behind it is also going to verse 10 in Revelation 17 it says there are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one years and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time so I want to present for possible scenarios of what this verse is referring to scenario one is that these are seven kings of the Roman Empire five Roman emperors had come and gone. During John's lifetime dimension. The existing King as of the time when John was writing the book of Revelation, he would be the one years. The sixth Emperor 14 and then Antichrist would be the other. That is not yet come.

Being the seventh king so that scenario one that scenario two is seven forms of worldly governments is what this represents scenario three, Rome was known as the city built on seven heals. So the seven heads represent the seven heals of Rome and then lastly scenario for that. This represents seven kingdoms of past, present and future as of the time Revelation was written that oppress the Jewish people throughout the time the John wrote the book of Revelation, the nation of Israel had been under the oppression of five kingdoms in its history began with Egypt when when Joseph was sold into slavery, and he went down into Egypt that began the Egyptian bondage in that day is when the Jews began to grow into the Pharaoh became paranoid thinking they would revolt against him and so he put them in bondage. And of course again. Joseph went as a slave but then he was delivered from slavery became the second in command to the kingdom, but then over time as the Jews began to repopulate or or to populate the area of Egypt known as Goshen. Then they went under bondage. The second Empire that had them in bondage was Syria. Then there was Babylon, media, Persia and Greece. So these will be the five that have fallen each king in the Scripture represented a kingdom again.

At the time of John's writing, Israel was in bondage to the Roman empire. So the one years would be a reference to the Romans then asked for the other has not yet come.

This would refer to a future kingdom which many believe will be the revived Roman Empire known today as the European Union. Only time will tell of this last kingdom will be the European Union or some other coalition with the last kingdom will complete the total of seven kingdoms that will have afflicted the Jews throughout their history.

So again folks as we are looking at this again we are talking about this false religion that is going to be in harmony embed with the kingdoms of the world that are going against our Lord Jesus Christ. These false religions played a very key role in what is going to take place. As we continue to work towards becoming of Jesus Christ someone a return now to again Bishop William Murphy as he continues to address the congregation is Chelsea wake up and stop being so spiritual and so heavily bound that you no earthly good. This is not just about reproductive rights. This is about voting rights is about civil rights about human right to be honest with you food it breaks my heart. Hearing this type of thing coming out of the pool. And you hear the people there that are cheering it on these things that are antithetical to the faith and and pastors and churches like like this.

This wheel Murphy.

They are going to continue. Unfortunately, in the Bible tells us that they are going to dominate during the seven year tribulation, but it will only be for a short time because like Antichrist. They're going to have the time but but their time is going to come to an end, but again you hear in his talking divergent tactics like he starts to talk about voting rights.

Well, this overturning of Roe versus Wade was simply to say a woman does not have a constitutional right to take the life of her unborn child has absolutely nothing to do with voting rights. But that's what he starts to talk about is thus talk about civil rights start to talk about human rights. Again, things that have nothing to do with this ruling, but that is what those who, when they are in the wrong rather than focusing on the one issue at hand, they start to point to other things is a call. Divergent tactics don't get caught up in those taxes don't allow them to straighten you off the issue at hand because that is a calming common thing that they often do so as we continue in Revelation 17 again looking at this this woman.

This false religion in these these leaders of the world that are going to to work with this woman. He says in verse 11. The beast that was and is not, is himself also. The eighth use of the seven and is going to perdition. So in keeping with scenario one that I gave you and scenario for this strongly suggests the antichrist use the seventh. He will appear to be killed during the seven year tribulation AC would try to mimic Jesus Christ being killed on the cross and rising from the dead. So he's going to appear to be killed, and then come back to life be resurrected during the tribulation again as Satan has tried to always take the place of God. So he tries to mimic God. He's going to mimic the resurrection of Jesus Christ, but he will go into the lake of fire. At the end of the tribulation.

So let's fast-forward to Revelation 19 verse 20, which speaks of this events that tells us then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.

And so the eighth that this verse is talking about is this one world system. This one girl kingdom of the tribulation that again will be in bed with this false religion, and remember in Scripture.

We saw earlier in Revelation that it says that it is the Dragon that gives power to the beast, and we pointed out the fact that the Dragon is Satan. In the end, the beast that is giving power to is this world system headed by antichrist but notice here when we're at this point he starts to talk about the beast and Satan antichrist as being one and the reason for this is because at the midpoint of the tribulation. Satan is going to enter into this human being. This man, who we know as antichrist and will be known then as antichrist, and he will possess them. So antichrist, and Satan will be as one. So that's why you see this piece we know that Satan is the one who will go into perdition and so this beast. It says is also because it will be as one with Satan in the in so again the false religion that's what I really want to draw keep drawing your attention back to the false religion that we will see you in the future and that we see taken place. Even today as again. Bishop William Murphy continues to address his congregation Bible is still right to say the Bible is so when it comes to these issues.

I don't have an opinion when it comes to these issues do not have. If you ask me what I think about an issue. I'm going to find a Scripture and read that scripture because I don't have have a conviction that God is still true. Somebody write that down the word of God is still trying. So I don't have to believe in same-sex marriage. I don't have to believe in, but what I do believe I don't have.

To tell you who you can and cannot marry your business arrive so the Scripture tells us that this beast is going to go into perdition.

Perdition is the eternal state of damnation. It is the lake of fire and post it is my prayer that men like this pastor will repent and I'm not here making the judgment to say that I know where he is eternal state will be your for that matter anybody is eternal state because only our Lord knows it but Allah tells us that we will recognize followers by their fruits. And I don't see the fruits of a follower coming out of the mouth of this pastor and so is my prayer that he will come to repentance. And for all who are going along with this false religion because as he's talking he's saying that the Bible is right, but he never quotes a single Scripture to support his position.

He says he doesn't have an opinion but while he's there speaking he is giving one this entire time and then he's wearing a T-shirt that says women have rights to. Again, in response to the overturning of Roe versus Wade which again is telling us that there is no constitutional right for woman to take the on the life of her unborn child, and so why does God call preachers if we cannot tell a person how to live if if we are not to be one to tell someone what's right and what's wrong then why does God call preachers that tells us that he speaking heretical things because he speaking against what the word of God calls us as preachers to do and so it is my heart that this this pastor will repent. It is my heart there for those who are are sitting on the leadership of this pastor that they will will become awake to what is taking place and that they will see the light and also repent from these heretical things that we hear coming out of this pool. Pause for a brief announcement, but please on the way folks were going to come back more again looking at this Scarlet woman.

God Revelation chapter 17 versus 12, 13 and 14. Read the 10 horns which you saw are 10 kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.

These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast, these will make war with the Lamb and the Lamb will overcome them for heat. Use the Lord of lords in the King of Kings and those who are with him a call chosen and faithful. So we see that these teen horns mention here in our text. It coincides with the 10 toes of Nebuchadnezzar's vision from Daniel chapter 7 and Revelation chapter 13. These are the 10 kings who will make up the antichrist world Confederacy of nations.

The antichrist will give them authority over countries but only for a short time. As with the Scripture refers to as one hour simply referring to a short period of time, but these 10 kings will work together as one unit. Give total allegiance to antichrist and these 10 kings will work together to bring the armies to the Valley of Megiddo.

At the end of the tribulation, which is where they will be defeated by our Lord Jesus Christ at his return, but they are again being led. They are following along with this false religion that is going to dominate. During this time to let us finish with that the final comments from Bishop William Murphy know you get me some of the most nasty PS sex happiness illegal sex happiness. No righteousness will not join in church because they know how fake we are we going be real about it. This is not about righteousness. This is about civil and human rights because it is the Constitution doesn't talk about abortion when the Constitution also says on 3/5 of a human being. The Constitution also says that I don't have a right to vote then here is the Constitution doesn't address it will have a right to it. I'm telling y'all this is an open door. First, reproductive rights and voting rights and civil rights and human rights.

This is just the beginning of a demonic agenda and the church has to get in the right. This is just absurdities what this is you, you hear him marking righteousness and again become as these make a so absurd that it really does not even warrant a response but I know my going to respond to all of it because when he's talking about the 3/5 of a of a human here. He's black, he's a black man and he's talking that the Constitution says he's been 3/5 of a human I am. I don't have time to get into it today to explain all of this, but I am doing an interview on our sister podcast discerning the times where I will have a pastor who is going to break down this falsehood that so many try to lean on as Blacks to talk about what the Constitution doesn't does not say so real. The lookout for that@blessingstoisrael.com in the coming weeks were going to go through it in depth, but he is making claims that not giving rights to to murder unborn babies is a demonic agenda you see the wickedness you see the days that the Bible says in which people would see rights as wrong and wrong is right and so he's calling the taking away of the rights which again, the Constitution never gave so the Supreme Court decision in 1973 should never have happened. So he sent taking that away is demonic. But he's the one who has a demonic agenda. He is the one that is following demonic spirits and speaking these things that are antithetical to the faith. Again this this false religion. The Scarlet woman that we already see in existence today she's going to continue to to thrive it to dominate during the seven year tribulation. Verse 15 says in Revelation 17 then he said to me, the waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, our people, multitudes, nations and tones. Remember, the Bible calls this woman a harlot, a prostitute, a Hor in this worldwide system over which this woman since CG dominates so that is the influence that this false religion is going to have on the world during the seven year tribulation and is sad to say that this pastor William Murphy is not the only one out there who speak of these things close I came across so many that are speaking falsehoods concerning this overturning of Roe versus Wade concerning this topic of abortion, but I just could not share the mall but I've decided to share these two well-known pastors and it will Murphy is also well known for being a renowned gospel singer. He makes a lot of gospel music that is very popular and so again, but you see the falsehoods that he speak and so the second one that I want to share with you today is pastor Jamaal Bryant. He leads new birth church in Stonecrest Georgia which is just outside of Atlanta so we hear his words addressing the local assembly again concerning the overturning of Roe versus Wade. This wake up America turn back the hands of time and declared war on women in this nation wanted us to stay on the resolve lady to say to this nation that if America was authentically pro-life than they would immediately abolish the death penalty if they will really pro-life than they put more money into head start programs if they were pro-life, they would seek to ensure the addiction in this nation if they were pro-life, they would make sure that teachers feel safe in their school. There were pro-life, they will be stiff restrictor assurance about going control in this nation if it was pro-life, we would not have to deal with insecure all right soon this again pastor and you see the same type of rhetoric that is coming from him. As you heard from the first one we are Murphy. He claims that America has turn back the hands of time and declared a war on women you see the same diversion tactics. Once again, coming from his mouth is pointing to all these other things, blessing, if you really pro-life, you would do this or you would do that the trying to take away the focus from the real issue at hand.

But the Scripture tells us examples of this spirit, this false religion. The Scarlet woman is going to dominate the world but only for time and we see it already today and was the church is taken away the true church is taken away in the rapture and the seven year tribulation begins. This false religion is going to again dominate so as to go back to our text in chapter 17 of Revelation. Verse 16 says in the 10 horns which you saw all the beasts, these will hate the harlot going to hate this false religion that that we hear coming out of the mouths of these pastors says they would make her desolate and make it eat her flesh and burn her with fire. During the first half of the tribulation, the Antichrist is going to use this religious system.

This is false religion to advance his calls and they will submit to it, but only for the need to gain power. They want to actually hate the submission and once their purpose has been reached, they will destroy her daddy. Is this religious system is at that point of the false religion of Antichrist worship will begin to focus how many times have you seen cases in which a man will get with a prostitute for the desires of the flesh only forward to eared and murder. I watch so many crime shows and can you see that happen. And not only prostitutes would wanted for money, but some who were not doing it for money. I've seen people who just decide to get together for sexual reasons.

In a disagreement happens and then the man ends up killing the woman that is because evil turns on itself evil ends up destroying evil because it is wicked and we're going to see that happen during the seven year tribulation with the Antichrist's want to turn on this.

This harlot once he's had hurt his way with her and gotten what he wanted from her is then going to destroy her Celeste again. I want to go back to Jamaal Bryant as he is talking to his congregation concerning his feelings of where our nation stands but I stand with now the living matriarch of the movement. Maxine Waters said they have clay at war one 32 million women in this nation. And one thing about a woman when she is focused she is not going to stop until she gets what she names we stand, we realize that this not just a woman's issue unless I don't understand how pregnancy works for me on not have to extend their forces as well. So we speak to this nation to the client that Merv stands with the amazing women of this church of this community and of this country that we men have a right to have already over their body and it should not be legislated by me on the in Washington DC right so if you did not know already if you had any doubts as soon as he says that he standing with the matriarch of this movement, Maxine Waters, this is the same Maxine Waters that is the US House of Representatives that advocates for violence. The same Maxine Waters that said, if you see a Donald Trump supporter to get in their face the same Maxine Waters who is been calling for defunding and in getting rid of law enforcement. He standing with this woman and calling her a matriarch of the movement and as you hear him talk. Did you notice that he said it is not just a woman's issue and that Mia need to speak out, but then he turns around and says that men in Washington DC cannot legislate the issue so this is what the Bible calls a double minded man. This is what is talking about speaking out of both sides of your mouth, because on the one hand, he says, is not just a women's issue. Mia need to speak out, but then when meaning in DC within the Supreme Court do speak out and says no this is not constitutional.

Then he says no they cannot do that a double minded man that was a not the ways of God states that a woman has authority over her own body. This is heretical teaching folks and I wish I could sit down and talk with this pastor and implored him to first Corinthians chapter 6 verses 19 through 20 was, tells us, or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own. For you will bolt at a price.

Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's. Our bodies are not our own.

The Bible clearly says that in this text we get. He says a woman has authority over her own body to do what she wants forget what God says a woman has authority. According to this bishop and not only does the Bible say that we are not our own, but instead we are of the temple of the Holy Spirit. The Bible also tells us that for believers in Jesus Christ, true believers, it says to us that Mia as a man, my body does not belong to me. But as they belongs to my wife in the terms of a marital relationship. It also says that for my wife that her body does not belong to her, but it belongs to me as her husband and so you see the heretical teachings that this pastor is spewing, but the Antichrist is going to promote these type of false religions, but will eventually destroy you because again evil feeds on itself evil turns on itself. So in verse 17 it says for God has put it in their hearts to fulfill his purpose to be of one mind to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God awful for you.

This is one of many examples which declared that God is in control of all and God can use anyone or anything for fulfillment of his purpose use pagan nations to judge the Israelites in the Old Testament when they would rebel against him.

He would allow pagan nations to come in to overtake them in order to turn them back to repentance, so God is going to put it in the hearts of of these these leaders of the world to to give their kingdom to the beast, and so was going to be for the fulfillment of God's purpose. Let's hear more from Pastor Jamaal Bryant. I want all of us all over this room would you do me a favor would you celebrate women around you who are competent enough to make decisions about their bodies. Decisions about their life decisions about their future steadfastly because what we are is racism rearing its head again with this measure that had just taken place. They lack, baby, infant mortality is going to rise by 30% in the hands we cover the lives of our mothers about pregnant mothers and on on the babies alright so pastor Brian. He goes on to tell the congregation to celebrate women having the right to choose anything that I'm asking is, he's talking. What does racism have to do with this issue is talking about racism in this is about unborn babies has absolutely nothing to do with race but again this is a diversion tactic. This is to play own emotions. This is get people worked up in a frenzy to say they're coming after us because of racial motivations and it's all just lives and then he says the infant mortality rate is going to rise by 30% when women do not have the right to take the life of their unborn child. But for every baby that is aborted though the mortality rate is 100%. So you see the illogic within this man and again I hope he repents. I hope Egan Bishop Murphy and all of those who were spewing these these wicked heretical things out of the pulpit that they will come to repentance. Verse 18. Revelation 17 says and the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth. Now many have taken this to mean this woman represents the capital city of the antichrist kingdom, but this cannot be because Antichrist himself is going to rule over the kings of the earth, so we're left to conclude that this woman represents again. This Babylonian religion of idolatry that has existed ever since back in the days of Nimrod that we talked about in the book of Genesis and she really should not be surprised that this prostitute woman. This religious system is referred to as a city because note that the bride of Christ is described in Revelation 21 to as the holy city, the new Jerusalem due to the inhabitants due to believers in Christ that are living in the city and just as a side note today Vatican City is the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church in Italy again a religious entity and so when we see in Scripture. As I've mentioned last week when a woman is Scripture is use a woman always represents a spiritual or religious movement. A good woman is Jehovah's wife or or bride of Christ.

Where is an evil woman is a prostitute. It represents idolatry and that is why a stress to people when you fornicate when you choose to have sexual relations outside of your marriage what you're doing, whether you're already married, or if you're not yet married would you have sexual relationships outside of marriage you are representing acceptance of Satan which were doing is representative of satanic worship, whereas within marriage between a man and woman. It represents being joined as one with our Lord Jesus Christ for all of eternity.

So this woman, this religious system.

This Babylonian religious system is represented by the numerous false religions in world history. Even those who claim to be Christianity.

In this woman will reign over the kings of the earth, indicating the great influence that she's going to have on world governments as the Bible says they will commit fornication with this woman.

This false religion, so I want to share two more clips from Pastor Jamaal Bryant before we wrap up with today. I need to do me a favor please, while last Sunday was Father's Day day.

We stand in the gap for mothers and for even merging up mothers. I knew didn't do me a favor please because I need to be mindful that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal Monday on my day on God for the pulling down of strongholds.

There is something said standing in Washington DC today. Proudly we dedicate these church coming at this time not because we believe the children are the future, we also believe that mothers have the right to elect where it is that they are in the season and the stages of their life and they should not be criminalized making decisions that will best suit them for where it is that they are living in a world that is declaring war on women. We declare that God is going to make you fit the battle that there will be no obstacles. You will not be able to overcome. You anoint your hands, and even in this moment that God will give you the strength to take hold of whatever it is that you go after you anoint your feet about the power of the Holy Spirit that you will have to be median in the earth, just as you do in heaven and all the people of God said a man sisters make some noise, even now right so folks do the irony with the hypocrisy of this whole thing is that this is during a baby dedication where he claims this is a satanic movement in Washington DC and while he speak and hear the end is actually laying hands on this precious little baby girl and he's praying over her while all along, stating the world is declaring a war on women for overturning Roe versus Wade. This this is really mind blowing. But we see this false religion, even in those who claim to be followers of Jesus Christ in this congregation from from this pastor in the first one that I share with you. Will Murphy the congregations are in the thousands.

These are numerous people that are following their leadership and there a lot of women president you heard him say the union women make some noise and it reminds me of the Scripture. And I don't want any women to take offense to this because godly women do not fall under the Scripture that I'm about to share with you.

But the Bible tells us that in the last days. In second Timothy chapter 3 verses six through seven says, for all of this sort. Of those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth, and this is what we see taken place right here is that men like this pastor leaves away gullible women who were loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts led away by the lust of the flesh, we led away by the lusts of convenience that want to have the right to be able to go out and have sex whenever they want with whoever they want wherever they want, and then take the life of the baby that comes along with it. This is what Scripture is telling us but again folks for you women out there who were godly women you recognize this you are not those gullible women you see the wickedness and what the Scripture or the wickedness and what this pastor I should say is he speaking and how he's twisting the Scriptures, but this is what the Bible says will be the condition. As we approach the last days, so this woman. This false religion is going to rain over the kings of the earth, but the kings of the earth will destroy her in the thing about it is when we look at churches like like these that I share with you today. The Bible tells us of the parable of the wheat and the tares and in that parable.

He says that Satan plants tares among the wheat, so in in these these church congregations. There are those that are not of God.

There are those who are of Satan, and unfortunately Satan plants even in the pool. Taylor's those who are not of God, says the enemy came and did this at midnight. While I was away you while I was asleep and so Satan has done the same thing. I heard a story once of warlike action hurting interview of a man who was a former warlock who had eventually been delivered and came to know Christ and he said that they would have meetings with other warlocks and witches and they would go to these meetings and they would receive instructions as to which church they would go to how they were to go and infiltrate these churches but to sit there and fit in Entrada to see how the people praise and see how they clap and to learn the lingo and then once people would not be suspecting of them.

They said they were told to stir up trouble calls division within the church and so folks. We must have wisdom when we are looking at this false religious system that it is even in the church today is infiltrated even sound churches and so we need wisdom not told by my children the other day during our morning devotion that we have is that I told them they cannot receive words from any and everyone who calls themselves a preacher or pastor and we see examples today of why that is. In these two passes that I've share with you and I even told my wife when I was talking to her I said we have to update our statement of faith to include the fact that we are pro-life in our ministries on our ministries website because there was a time in which I thought it was a no-brainer that as a Christian ministry. We would be pro-life, the people we just know we were.

We are pro-life but as we see today that there are those who fly under the banner of Christianity, but instead they are pro-abortion taken the life of an unborn child and I and I noticed two as you heard both of these pastor speaking neither ever gave Scripture to support their position, but you've heard me give numerous Scriptures to support the position that it is seeing that it is wickedness of what we hear coming out of these pastor smiles. I want to close the second Timothy chapter 4 verses three and four for the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but after their own lust. They shall keep up to themselves teachers, having engineers and that they should turn away their use from the truth shall be turned unto fables and that is exactly what we see taken place in churches close. These are serious times that we are living in.

We must have wisdom of God to navigate these times we must be in prayer. So I am going to close with prayer for repentance of these pastors and for any who are following along with these wicked doctrines that they are teaching every father we again thank you Lord for this time. We think you will for your word is my prelude with you will touch the hearts and minds of Bishop Murphy you will touch the hearts and mind, heart and mind of of pastor Bryant and and for all the people that are being led astray in these churches know that you would just touch them. Right now, Lord, show them the truth and the way which is you.

Our Lord Jesus Christ, to follow your way to to follow the Scripture which you set up quickly for you life and death.

Choose life so that you will bless and not received the curse upon the lien. It is my prayer that they will repent to come out of this false religion, and not only him, Lord, but anyone else around the world was was claiming to be of the faith but instead is doing exactly what the Scripture says what happened they would would have a form of godliness but denying the power thereof and instead go for those who are going to tickle going to scratch their itching ears. So I pray for repentance, Lord, and during this time. Lord, we give you honor we give you glory. We give you praise the great God that you are.

We thank you Lord Jesus for coming to die for our sins as we close.

Lord we remember to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Lesser great nation of Israel.

You, the only wise God be glory through Jesus Christ, forever. Amen. You can think of the Bible blame God for Ryan and I first was protected under our copyright website.org until next time great nation of Israel first
