So here we are in October of 2013! I want to start out by saying THANK YOU SO MUCH to those of you who are helping this ministry continue on in this late hour through your prayers and financial support. Really!

I know I commonly say things are happening so fast but they really are! Especially in the area of Bible prophecy!
There’s a few things I want to cover beginning with this movement taking place to impeach Obama simply because you’re not catching this on the news. This is from World Net Daily.

Greetings in Jesus…

The Jesuit Pope of Rome by Shaun Willcock…

Shaun is a minister of the Gospel. He runs Bible Based Ministries.

On March 13, 2013, a Roman Catholic cardinal from Argentina, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, was elected as the new pope. He took the name of Francis. His election is full of deep significance and will have far-reaching, global ramifications. There is so much behind the choice of this man. But first and foremost is this fact: Jorge Bergoglio, Francis is a Jesuit!

For centuries Jesuits controlled the Papacy. They’re the real power behind the papal throne. This is a fact so certain that the Jesuit General, the man in charge of the Order worldwide, is known within Roman Catholic circles as “the black pope.” Not because he is black, he’s not, but because he is the shadow pope of Rome, the real power behind the scenes. The Jesuits are a law unto themselves. Their real allegiance is to the Jesuit General. The present Jesuit General is Adolfo Nicolás. All orders come from the General; even the pope’s instructions are only passed on if the General sees fit. The Jesuits have always operated behind the scenes secretly pulling the strings of power where few could see them. Theirs has always been the world of cloak-and-dagger. That they now seen fit to boldly come out and appoint one of their own as the pope, indicates that they believe the times call for such an appointment.

And so the Vatican now has two Jesuits in the two highest positions of authority within the Roman Catholic
institution. Every Jesuit must be in total obedience to his superior, obeying him without question. In the Constitu-tions of the Order, it is repeated 500 times that the Jesuit must see in the General, not a fallible man, but Christ Himself! For the Jesuits “there is a greater authority than the pope and a greater authority than God Himself – and that is the General.”

What an extraordinary situation! A Roman pontiff, supposedly at the pinnacle of power within the Roman Catholic institution and yet, as a Jesuit, actually under his General! A Roman pontiff, believed by papists to be the Vicar of Christ, “Christ Himself under the veil of the flesh” and believed to be infallible when he pronounces ex- cathedra on matters of faith and morals, who is a Jesuit under his General, and who sees in his General, not a fallible man, but Christ Himself! Even though all popes for centuries have had to obey the Jesuit General and lived in fear of him, never before has a Jesuit been openly
elevated to that position, a man who has taken a vow to obey his General above all others, and at all times! The Jesuits are now in total control of the Vatican, and of the Roman Catholic institution worldwide. These are extraor-dinary times indeed. Even the speed with which the new pope was chosen is indicative of the extraordinary nature of these happenings.

Bergoglio: a Brief Background
Jorge Mario Bergoglio is 76 years old, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1936. In 1958 he joined the Jesuit Order, and was ordained as a Jesuit priest in 1969. He rose to become the leader of Argentina’s Jesuits and the Romish archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1998. He was made a Cardinal in 2001.

The Name “Francis”
What can be said about his choice of name? The Roman Catholic “saint, Francis of Assisi (1181-1226), is held up by Roman Catholics as a model of humility, simplicity of lifestyle, poverty, etc., and doubtless Bergoglio wants to send the signal that he will emulate Francis. Also, Francis believed God told him to “repair my Church” and at a time of massive upheaval and disillusionment with in the Roman Catholic Church worldwide, primarily because of the global priestly sex abuse scandals. This new pope will doubtless want to send the world the message that he will build up the “Church” again. But there’s more. Another famous Roman Catholic “saint” was Jesuit Francis Xavier (1506-1552), a contemporary of the Jesuit founder Ignatius de Loyola, a man who went to India to “evangelize” for Rome. Xavier was the first Jesuit missionary. Bergoglio, as a Jesuit and a man with a great desire for Roman Catholic evangelization in the world, would surely have had this Francis in mind, too, when he chose his name.

Why This Man was Chosen
1. He is a Jesuit! It’s evident that the Jesuits felt the time was ripe to openly raise one of their own to the papal throne. And knowing how they operate, were the Jesuits behind Benedict’s sudden departure? No question about it. His resignation may have had age and health a part of it and possibly the attacks on the church regarding the priesthood of sodomites, but Benedict was fully aware of this issue and it wouldn’t have been the sole cause of his leaving. When the “Vatileaks” business erupted involving Benedict’s butler who stole his documents, beyond
question on the orders of others behind the scenes, Benedict told some that the butler was giving him his medicine too; and Benedict may have feared for his life. And known who was behind it all. Whether Benedict was willing to depart on their orders or whether they forced him out, the Jesuits were involved. Deeply involved.

2. He is Latin American

Why is this significant? South America has the largest number of Roman Catholics in the world – over 40 % of all the earth’s Romanists live there. For a Papal system longing to control the entire world; including the United States, a country of which huge numbers of Latin Ameri-cans are pouring into as legal and illegal immigrants, what better way to control a large portion of the country, but through their religion?!! To have their own pope who understands and wants to uplift them; a pope of liberal/left social justice policies.

3. He is of Italian descent. Bergoglio’s father was an Italian immigrant. This makes him the ideal bridge between the non-European, non-Italian Third World and the predominantly European and Italian leaders of the Church. It certainly makes him far more acceptable to the hierarchy as pope, even though he is from a country outside of Europe. He brings together the first world and the developing world in his own person.

4. He is leftist in “social justice” matters! A number of Latin American priests have advocated the radical Catholic-Communist doctrine known as “liberation theology;” leftist “social justice” causes. Liberation theology teaches there’s such a thing as “social sin;” sin within the structures of Capitalist society, which needs to be removed and replaced by Communist structures so that wealth can be “re-distributed” from the rich to the poor. In 2007 he said there was an “unjust distribution of goods” in the world – a Marxist expression, and called for radical leftist social policies to be implemented by a world authority.

However, in Argentina he was accused of failing to stand up to Argentina’s right-wing dictator and of doing nothing when victims of the state’s brutality and their relatives brought first-hand accounts of torture, death, and kidnap-pings to Jesuit priests under him. He was also accused of assisting the Argentinian navy in hiding political prisoners from the Inter-American Human Rights Commission. It seems very likely that he was more deeply involved with the military dictatorship than would appear on the surface.

In 2005, a human rights lawyer in Argentina filed a com-plaint charging Bergoglio with complicity in the 1976 kidnapping of two of his own leftist Jesuit priests by Argentina’s military regime. The two were found alive some five months later, drugged and semi-naked. One of them, Orlando Yorio accused Bergoglio of handing them over to the Argentinian death squads. The other, Francisco Jalics, refused to talk and went into seclusion in a German monastery.

The bottom line is that we simply don’t know the truth about Jorge Bergoglio. The truth is hidden behind a dense fog of the Jesuits’ own making. We know for sure that he supports leftist “social justice” causes, while appearing to be politically right-wing. Either way, the new pope of Rome, Francis has a lot to answer for. His hands are not clean.

“Peter the Roman”? The “Prophecy” of Malachy
Regarding the resignation of Benedict XVI, a very real possibility may be his fulfilling a prophecy by a Roman Catholic “saint,” Malachy. According to the prophecy, Benedict would be the next to last pope and his successor, “Peter the Roman,” would be the final pope before the second coming of Christ. It’s entirely possible that Benedict willingly resigned (or forced out) to deliberately make way for the final pope.
Is Francis the Antichrist of God’s Word?

In all this upheaval and momentous events, let’s not lose sight of the divinely inspired prophecies in the Bible. When Jorge Bergoglio was asked if he accepted the position of pope of Rome and said yes, he became the next one in the dynasty of men through the centuries who are called in God’s Word, the Man of Sin and Son of Perdition; the Antichrist! (2Thes. 2:3; 1 Joh. 2:18, 22). Thus he, “who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God or that is worshipped so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” (2Thes. 2:4).

Note… For those wondering if this new pope would be called Peter, FOX News stated not once, but twice which I recorded, that he will also be called Peter!

A Lamp in the Dark: The Untold History of the Bible

An interesting thing took place last month. I always try to catch from the Lord what He wants me to air and after airing Catholicism: Crisis of Faith, I felt the Lord wanted me to air the above title. But I never air the same topic two weeks in a row. And for sure, never on the topic of Catholicism. What I didn’t know at the time (but the Lord did) was who the next pope would be, nor did I have the slightest idea he would be the 1st Jesuit pope in history!

So on Monday, March 11th, A Lamp in the Dark aired. Two days later on 3-13-13 the new Jesuit pope was announced. By the way, the number 13 is a highly used occult number. Now the film A Lamp in the Dark: The Untold History of the Bible is the true story of how an ex-Catholic priest hundreds of years ago got saved, felt he had to devote his life to getting the Word of God trans-lated into English and into the hands of the common people and how he was greatly persecuted and hunted down by the Catholic Jesuits who wanted him dead! But through the persecutions and dangers of death, he was finally able to convince the King of England to have the Scriptures translated into English. Thus came the King James Bible in 1611! This truly is the untold story of the Bible finally being translated into English! The ironic thing is the programs I air are set up at least a week in advance and this one started airing two days BEFORE the new pope from the high Jesuit order was announced to the rest of the world! This is one film that should be aired throughout the world in this late hour. Especially now because of what has happened. But of course Satan will be sure to hinder this from taking place. But you guys can obtain a copy now! Share it at your church or fellowship. Make copies and pass them out to others! Especially to your unsaved Catholic friends and family! Get a copy to every Catholic Church in your area. Or even get a mailing list to every Catholic Church in your city, county or state or the entire nation and mail them to those locations! We don’t know how much time we have left and this might be the last opportunity we have to bring the message of salvation to so many unsaved Catholics!

If you would like a copy of A Lamp in the Dark: The Untold History of the Bible, it’s available for a gift of any amount this month! Those of you on the 30 Club mailing will already have a copy in your package. Just be sure to do more than just watch it then stick it away somewhere!

sarah-palinThe Government is Stockpiling Ammo Against US Citizens

Americans are sick and tired of yet another ginned-up crisis. D.C. needs to grow up, get to work, and live within its means.

The real economic Armageddon looming before us is our runaway debt, not the sequester, which the President advocated for and signed into law and is now running around denouncing because he never had any genuine intention of reining in his reckless spending. Remember that this sequestration deal came about because of the debt ceiling standoff in the summer of 2011. It wasn’t the ideal outcome for anyone, but it did at least include real deficit reduction of about $110 billion per year for 10 years, which is still nowhere near enough to close our massive deficit. Keep in mind that since the sequester passed, the President has already hit American families and small business owners with his tax increases, or “more revenue” as he likes to call it. The American public doesn’t want tax increases; we want government to rein in its overspending. If we can’t stomach modest cuts that would lower federal spending by a mere 0.3% per year out of a current federal budget of $3.6 trillion, then we might as well signal to the whole world that we have no serious intention of dealing with our debt problem. If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we’re running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we’re done. Put a fork in us. We’re finished. We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest. If we ARE serious about putting our fiscal house in order, then let’s stop the hysterics, tighten our belts, and take our medicine. – Sarah Palin

New! Just got in but not aired yet.

Many are concerned about the economy. Just got in a new DVD entitled: The Future of Gold, Silver & the Dollar from Compass International. Available this month for a gift of any amount.

Obama vs. America…?

Well it’s been a while now since the re-election of Barry Soroto aka Barack Obama when Christians went into a state of mourning and unbelief over this country. We just couldn’t seem to believe how something so tragic could have taken place a 2nd time in this nation. There are still many who believe there was fowl play in both elections and that Obama was pre-appointed by the New World Order boys long before any elections took place. In fact, there was research looking over the entire nation going county by county on this last election and the conclusion was that the numbers just didn’t add up! FOX News has now also reported on much voting fraud. Yet this man still remains President!

Many of you are familiar with the website World Net Daily or WND. The founder of WND, Joseph Farah, a strong Christian, delivered a speech back on Feb. 5th 2010, on national television from Nashville, which many of us either missed or have forgotten. Recently I obtained a copy of this speech where Mr. Farah gave us a recap of Obama’s accomplishments at that time. Let me share with you just a few of them with a little more of my own. On Oct. 31st 2008, Halloween, a high satanic un-holy day, Obama said “We are 5 days away from fundamentally transforming the United States.” You see his goal from the beginning was to transform America from one nation under God to a totally secular nation. He looks down on Christians. He’s given tax payer money to organizations to perform abortions. Whenever he quotes the Declaration of Independence, he always sensors out the word “creator.” He canceled the National Day of Prayer. He is a Muslim. He is pro-same sex marriage. In July 2011 he banned any mention of Jesus Christ during the burials at Houston National Cemetery. Sept. 2011, he banned visitors from bringing Bibles or any other Christian literature to read to their wounded sons at the Walter Reed Veterans hospital.

Obama tries filling our courts with anti-Christian Judges. Our founding fathers who wrote the 1st Amendment would be shocked to see how Obama is trying to redefine it. And now he’s going after out 2nd Amendment as well! The right to own and bear arms! Today we have F.E.M.A. camps built all over this country, which are really concentration camps for Americans and our government has stockpiled enough ammunition to kill everyone of us many times over. We’ve been spied on through satellites; and if that wasn’t enough, now we have these drones flying around. I know this sounds like a crazy nightmare or science fiction movie but these things have come to pass!

Anyway, I found the DVD by Joseph Farah so interesting that I aired it recently on the 3rd week of March. If you would like a copy it’s available this month for a gift of any amount. Just ask for the DVD: Obama vs. America and do feel free to make copies and share with others!
New- just got in- not aired yet but hope to soon! Soros, Obama & the UN Plan to Rule the World! Also available this month for a gift of any amount.

NEW! Hell’s Best Kept Secret
With Kirk Cameron & Ray Comfort

Have you noticed it seems less and less people are getting saved in this late hour? Or if they are getting saved, we’re just not seeing any good fruit that remains. In fact, did you know that 80-90% of those making a decision for Christ are falling away from their faith? That’s right! 80-90%! Why is this? Well, there is that prophecy saying in the latter times some shall fall away from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. But we need to ask ourselves why this is taking place? Apparently modern-day evangelism is not working. But if we go back in history we find these great revivals taking place where multitudes came to Christ. God used men as John Wesley, George Whitfield, Charles Spergon and others. So, what did these men preach that we don’t preach today? The LAW! Now, many today will say, but we’re not under the law.

We’re saved by grace through faith! Of course we are but Psalms 19:7 tells us the law of the Lord is perfect at converting the soul! And in Romans 7:7, Paul says I had not known sin but by the law! And Galatians 3:24 tells us “Therefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ that we might be justified through faith”! Today we have bumper stickers saying things like, “try Jesus.” Try Jesus? We have sermons with alter calls inviting people to come on down and accept Jesus. Wait a minute! What about Jesus accepting them! Now some alter calls do work providing two things. #1. If you can get the unsaved person to the church and, #2. If the law is preached first! That’s what the Roman’s road is all about right? The first 8 chapters of the book of Romans! What we need to do is stop trusting in our pastor getting someone saved and do it ourselves! Don’t give up on your lost friends and family, just do it right and they’ll get saved! You might want to get a copy of the DVD we just got in by Kirk Cameron & Ray Comfort entitled: Hell’s Best Kept Secret. Available this month for a gift of any amount.

Preparedness Corner…

Fox news announced recently that 42 states reported drug resistant superbugs have been showing up. They said these superbugs can’t be eliminated by antibiotics! Just a reminder that according to the U.C.L.A. Medical Department, Colloidal Silver killed every virus tested in their lab. Over 650 of them! Includes everything from the common cold to the many flu strains to just about anything else out there. Here’s just a small list of what Colloidal Silver can get rid of. Bacterial infections, systemic fungal infections, staph infections, it purifies water, It’s a great topical application for scrapes, wounds, cuts and sores. It has so many more healthful uses that we can’t possibly fit here!!!

We’ve been making Colloidal Silver generators available for over 25 years but not for the prices you’ll find on the internet, which usually start at about $100 and go up to around $300! That’s ridiculous! Ours are only $44 and produce a fine grade of Colloidal Silver you can make at home for only pennies per gallon! So simple a child could do this! It comes with everything you need including instructions and a short DVD. All you need is a glass of water! As you may know Colloidal Silver is no longer available in Europe and it’s just a matter of time until you won’t be able to buy it here in America as well; so the only ones who will have it will be those who can make it at home.

Also, Preppers III is now available!

As with Preppers I and II, this is a DVD filled with ideas from those who are making preparations for the times  ahead. Yes it’s a pre-Tribulation Rapture or “catching up” because God will never pour out His wrath upon His people; but what about things taking place now? Next week? Or a few months from now? If you would like a copy of Preppers III, it’s now available

30 Club

We still have our 30 Club going. Anyone wishing to obtain everything we air each month (almost always DVDs so that’s an $80 value) may do so with a gift of $30 or more each month. If you would like to join up for the rest of 2013, now would be the time to do so. Just let me know. Thanks! -Jim

Prayer Request…

As you might imagine, the more I expose the works of darkness, the more Satan attacks. Because of dealing with Obama and now with all that is taking place with the popes and that great harlot that continues deceiving the nations, I’ve had more than my share of problems. First, the gas tank on my truck started leaking causing gallons of gas to saturate the ground next to my cabin.

Dangerous! I replaced the gas tank with a new one, which also leaked and had to be replaced. Then my refrigerator went out and had to be replaced. Then my furnace went out and had to be replaced. And now I’m fighting an infestation of beetles in my cabin. Would really appreciate your prayers against such attacks!

Ending Note…

Once again I want to thank those of you who help this ministry continue through your prayers and gifts of support. You guys are the real heroes and are greatly appreciated!

Yours because His:

Jim

adbcTHE ATHEIST DEBATE  BC/AD

For years Atheists have petitioned the Government to have their own National Atheist Day. After years of being turned down, the Government finally gave them an official day: April 1st. The amazing thing is not only the fact that this is on April Fools’ Day, but Scripture also tells us it is the fool that says there is no God. Also amazingly enough, on every April 1st, there is a debate between an Atheist and a Christian on the topic of Does God Exist. During the first week of this month, I am airing such a debate by Christian (Ray Comfort) vs. Atheist (Ron Barrier). So think about this, on April Fools’ Day, Comfort the Christian vs. Barrier the Atheist.

Debate between Ray Comfort and Ron Barrier (American Atheists Inc.). Held in Orlando, FL at the American Atheists’ National Convention. This debate has tremendous evangelistic potential. It’s the sort of thing you could give to your neighbors because it was hosted by American Atheists, rather than a “church.”

“Quite a number of folks have been wanting to know how the debate went with Ron Barrier at the American Atheists’ National Convention in Florida. So here’s what happened,” said Comfort after the event.

“Ron Meade (one of my associates) and I arrived at the hotel in Orlando and were surprised to find a large bowl of fruit in our room, with a welcome card from American Atheists. After I removed the plastic, Ron picked up the grapes, put one in his mouth and said, ‘Wow. and I didn’t think that atheists were such ni….’ Suddenly he grabbed his throat, choked, and fell to the floor (he was just kidding). It was a blessing that they gave us fruit, because that’s why we were there — to see fruit,” Comfort said.

“The next day, about 40 Christians showed up from around the country, including the editor of Bridge-Logos Publishers, and a film crew from Cross TV. I was concerned that my permission to videotape the debate was a bit flimsy. It was a letter from Ron Barrier that simply said, ‘I don’t care what you do!’ said Comfort.

When the crew crept into the convention hall to set up, a security guard asked them what they were doing. She turned out to be a Christian and told them that she would be in prayer for the whole thing. “We then went into the atheist’s bookstore and they kindly gave me a table upon which I could put copies of, ‘How to make an Atheist Backslide,’ ”Comfort recalled.

“While we were in the store the president of AA approached me, introduced herself and asked if the three large cameras in the convention hall were mine. When I said that they were she replied, ‘Good. We will make sure we give you plenty of time to set up.’

“A short time later, Ron Barrier and I shook hands and the debate began. Each of us had 15 minutes, then 10 minutes, 8, and a close of 5 minutes. It was like a dream come true. Not only had I been given permission to fill their convention with Christian literature, but I was presenting my case for God’s existence to 300 atheists as well as being broadcast live over their website.

“They laughed at my humor, and although there was unified mockery at some of the things that I said, I was able to go through the Ten Commandments, the fact of Judgment Day, the reality of Hell, the Cross, and the necessity of repentance, and no one stopped me,” said Comfort.

After the initial debate (during the question times), one man stood up and challenged Comfort to eat some arsenic-laced peanuts he had in a box, based on God’s promise in Mark 16:18. “I told him that if he could find the word ‘peanuts’ in the verse, I would eat them. The powerful intellectual incident climaxed their arguments against God’s existence. Nuts,” said Comfort.

“After the question time, Ron Barrier came over and we shook hands. He even let me give him a hug. They then had us co-sign two of my books. When he saw that I hade put ‘[That] idiot book! Ron Barrier, American Atheists, Inc.’ on the cover, he was delighted.

adbcTHE ATHEIST DEBATE  BC/AD

For years Atheists have petitioned the Government to have their own National Atheist Day. After years of being turned down, the Government finally gave them an official day: April 1st. The amazing thing is not only the fact that this is on April Fools’ Day, but Scripture also tells us it is the fool that says there is no God. Also amazingly enough, on every April 1st, there is a debate between an Atheist and a Christian on the topic of Does God Exist. During the first week of this month, I am airing such a debate by Christian (Ray Comfort) vs. Atheist (Ron Barrier). So think about this, on April Fools’ Day, Comfort the Christian vs. Barrier the Atheist.

Debate between Ray Comfort and Ron Barrier (American Atheists Inc.). Held in Orlando, FL at the American Atheists’ National Convention. This debate has tremendous evangelistic potential. It’s the sort of thing you could give to your neighbors because it was hosted by American Atheists, rather than a “church.”

“Quite a number of folks have been wanting to know how the debate went with Ron Barrier at the American Atheists’ National Convention in Florida. So here’s what happened,” said Comfort after the event.

“Ron Meade (one of my associates) and I arrived at the hotel in Orlando and were surprised to find a large bowl of fruit in our room, with a welcome card from American Atheists. After I removed the plastic, Ron picked up the grapes, put one in his mouth and said, ‘Wow. and I didn’t think that atheists were such ni….’ Suddenly he grabbed his throat, choked, and fell to the floor (he was just kidding). It was a blessing that they gave us fruit, because that’s why we were there — to see fruit,” Comfort said.

“The next day, about 40 Christians showed up from around the country, including the editor of Bridge-Logos Publishers, and a film crew from Cross TV. I was concerned that my permission to videotape the debate was a bit flimsy. It was a letter from Ron Barrier that simply said, ‘I don’t care what you do!’ said Comfort.

When the crew crept into the convention hall to set up, a security guard asked them what they were doing. She turned out to be a Christian and told them that she would be in prayer for the whole thing. “We then went into the atheist’s bookstore and they kindly gave me a table upon which I could put copies of, ‘How to make an Atheist Backslide,’ ”Comfort recalled.

“While we were in the store the president of AA approached me, introduced herself and asked if the three large cameras in the convention hall were mine. When I said that they were she replied, ‘Good. We will make sure we give you plenty of time to set up.’

“A short time later, Ron Barrier and I shook hands and the debate began. Each of us had 15 minutes, then 10 minutes, 8, and a close of 5 minutes. It was like a dream come true. Not only had I been given permission to fill their convention with Christian literature, but I was presenting my case for God’s existence to 300 atheists as well as being broadcast live over their website.

“They laughed at my humor, and although there was unified mockery at some of the things that I said, I was able to go through the Ten Commandments, the fact of Judgment Day, the reality of Hell, the Cross, and the necessity of repentance, and no one stopped me,” said Comfort.

After the initial debate (during the question times), one man stood up and challenged Comfort to eat some arsenic-laced peanuts he had in a box, based on God’s promise in Mark 16:18. “I told him that if he could find the word ‘peanuts’ in the verse, I would eat them. The powerful intellectual incident climaxed their arguments against God’s existence. Nuts,” said Comfort.

“After the question time, Ron Barrier came over and we shook hands. He even let me give him a hug. They then had us co-sign two of my books. When he saw that I hade put ‘[That] idiot book! Ron Barrier, American Atheists, Inc.’ on the cover, he was delighted. Some angry atheists came up to the platform afterwards and spat out sarcasm, while a number of others asked me to sign books for them, which was weird,” Comfort said.

“The experience was a blessing beyond words — to not only preach the whole counsel of God, but to give out scores of copies of our new booklet ‘Scientific Facts in the Bible,’ as well as free copies of my book.

April Newsletter 2014 PDF Version

Greetings in Jesus…!

So here we are in April of 2014 already! Seems the first item on the news this winter has been the extreme winter. Earth changes are still happening. There were times some ski areas closed in Colorado because it was too cold! I’ve never even heard of that happening before! But thank the Lord I had plenty of firewood to burn 24/7 and stayed warm.

I just want to start out by saying THANK YOU SO MUCH to those of you who are helping this ministry continue on in this late hour through your prayers and gifts of support. Really! You’re the real heroes!

Have you read the Bible? No, but I saw the movie!

It seems we have a couple new Bible-type movies that have come out recently. For this, I am glad! These plant seeds to unsaved people. I remember when Jesus Christ Superstar came out and as blasphemous as that was, even that film planted seeds to many who later got saved.

But as a watchman for the Church, I believe it’s important for us to look at inaccuracies. Not only that, but spiritual things as well. Now I know I’m going to get some flak for this but I believe we must also take a look at just how powerful popularity can be. For instance, guess who brought more people into the cult of Mormonism than all the Mormon missionaries did in the 70’s and 80’s: Donnie & Marie Osmond! More recently Mitt Romney and Glenn Beck!

Yes Satan uses politics as well! Pretty much anyone who is out there and loved by so many. Roma Downy is a Roman Catholic and has had a long running show, Touched by an Angel. She portrayed an angel and has been loved by many; including true born-again Christians! But one must wonder how many are being drawn into Roman Catholicism with her influence? Roman Catholicism is of course recognized by the world as Christian but then again so are all of the mainstream cults that do not teach salvation correctly. The following are excerpts from a recent article from the Christian based website World Net Daily who brought us The Harbinger with Jonathan Cahn.

Son of God Movie

April Newsletter 2014dThe same people who produced the terribly inaccurate story of The Bible that showed for 10 hours over five weeks on the History Channel have now released an even MORE error-prone movie.

Roma Downey and her husband Mark Burnett have produced Son of God, which seemed to have at least one error a minute throughout the movie. They have openly said that Biblical accuracy was not their first priority. Which of course, makes you wonder, what WAS their priority and purpose?

I took nine pages of notes regarding the many scriptural inaccuracies on my first (and only) viewing of the movie. Errors ranged from the holes in Jesus’ hands (instead of His wrists) to adding words to the Biblical narrative… adding words to what the Bible says Jesus said.

Son of God has so many inaccuracies that it begs the question, “should you even watch it?” knowing that right or

wrong, the images will be burned in your mind forever. For example, the movie has Jesus barging uninvited into Peter’s boat out in the water on the Sea of Galilee (which bears no resemblance to the real Sea of Galilee).

April Newsletter 2014a

He then commands Peter to cast his net into the water again. Jesus then stirs His hand in the water and the fish fill Peter’s net. Then Jesus tells Peter to follow Him to “Change the world.”

Well that’s certainly NOT what happened. Jesus called Peter and Andrew together to become Disciples. Both had finished fishing and were back at the shore mending nets (Mat. 4:18-20, Luk. 5:1-11).

And He never said to Peter, “I’ve come to change the world.” Another example is that the Bible says Jesus slowly ascended to heaven from the Mount of Olives with all watching. And also says He will return the same way. But in the movie, Jesus is blasted up in the sky like a bottle rocket! Is He going to return the same way? The Catholicism purposefully inserted in the movie is a non-issue. Hey, they put their money out to make the film so they are in control. It seemed like they put Mary, played by Downey, in just about every scene.

Obviously they believed the changes would make the movie better … that fiction was better than the truth. And they added and subtracted from the Biblical story, literally, throughout the movie. There are hundreds of things altered or changed that water down or give the wrong impression of a scene. But the changes were not only non-Biblical additions, but also major subtractions. Sin and repentance is never mentioned, which is the whole reason Jesus laid down His life. Worst of all, only lip service is given to Jesus’ Resurrection.

April Newsletter 2014c
Joel Olsteen and Rick Warren are BIG promoters of Son of God movie

April Newsletter 2014b

“and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain.” 1Cor. 15:14 That’s one BIG omission!

April Newsletter 2014eThe producers resorted to promotional gimmicks like this one—releasing a picture of Satan that obviously looked like Obama. They said they cut the scene, but I’m guessing it never existed to be cut. There hasn’t been a good solid Protestant-controlled movie created for the big screen in some time. If someone does get the funds to do it right and they stick to Biblical truth, it will probably do well in a world that’s starving for Biblical truth. Jesus movie by Campus Crusade was filmed on location in Israel.

April Newsletter 2014fThe BEST, MOST ACCURATE movie about the Bible ever produced was the movie “Jesus” done by Campus Crusade in the late 1970s. Filmed in Israel, they used ONLY the Book of Luke as the script and the only words Jesus spoke were the exact words from scripture. So whatever you’re watching, whatever scene you see is handled with scriptural integrity.

April Newsletter 2014g

Produced by Paramount and starring Russell Crowe, NOAH makes a mockery of the Biblical account. In fact it’s so bad that when allowed to be previewed by Bible-believing Christians, they demanded, and got, a disclaimer added to the promotional material. In order not to tip their hand about how “unbiblical” the movie is, the promotional materials and video trailer give no hint at the large Biblical deviations taken in the script.

April Newsletter 2014hThe original movie production went over budget so before more money was made available, test screenings were given to three groups of people: Jews, Christians, and the general public.

And from the screenings, Hollywood brass insisted on changes to the script they believed would make it sell better. From that you can derive its bottom line purpose–it’s a good movie if it makes money. They apparently could care less if it’s accurate. Noah himself is presented as a very dark character and you’ll love this, he is the very first environmentalist! Oh please! Of course, the Bible says Noah was the only righteous man left on the planet! And Noah is even portrayed having “survivor’s guilt” after living through the flood. Oh please!

Some Interesting Truth Concerning the Ark

Dutchman Johan Huibers built a life-size replica of Noah’s Ark and is planning to bring it to America sometime next year complete with animals…some are plastic.

April 15th The First of 4 Blood Moons in Israel

These are all on biblical feast days. The 1st one being Passover, the 2nd on October 8th is the Feast of Tabernacles, 3rd is April 4, 2015, Passover again; and the 4th is September 28, 2015, Feast of Tabernacles again. Will we hear this on the news? Not likely. Even NASA took down their website that for years provided detailed information and schedules about upcoming eclipses.

Court-martialed for Jesus!

I got a call from a woman last month who’s been buying tons of blank DVDs, taking them to her church and making copies of ours, then passing them out to whoever she can whenever she can. She worked at a commissary on a military base in the mess hall in Southern Arizona. During her break, she spent her time passing these out. She got called in, court-martialed, and lost her job over this! Believe it or not, her last name is Warrior! Are you a warrior for Jesus? Please keep her in your prayers. As far as I know, she’s looking for work. When I talked with her, she told me she just had to tell people Jesus is coming soon!

59. During Obama’s presidency so far, we’ve added more debt than the time between George Washington to George W. Bush.

60. The Feds are printing trillions of dollars without backing, destroying stock market confidence. This is causing deflation of the US, plus inflation in necessary goods.

Now that you’ve gotten the most-current facts, you can see this country is quickly headed for a total financial collapse. When you add in the collapse of all state and federal welfare as food stamps, medical care, and social security, you’ll see this government offers us no security at all! Psalms 118.8 tells us it is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. The last I heard, this (scheduled) collapse was to take place next year but now I’m wondering if it will make it that long. In last month’s newsletter I mentioned the closing of 33 JC Penny’s stores and 500 Radio Shacks. Now it’s 1,100 Radio Shacks, nearly an entire chain of CiCi pizza stores and 225 Staple’s stores, which is a business for businesses. This should tell us something.

Even if they do hold things off until the early part of next year, we may only have months to prepare for things.

Know How to Grow Survival Vegetables?

Last month I aired the DVD Growing Your Own Survival Vegetables. It seems so many think if times get hard, they can just plant a few seeds and that’s it. Not so! There’s so much more to know. How much to water, how much sunlight, when to plant, what about bugs and diseases and more! If you’d like a copy. It’s available this month for a gift of any amount.

Food Storage Secrets

Ever done any canning of fruits, veggies or meats? Have everything you need to be successful? This has become a lost art in this country and there’s much to learn. I’m planning to air the DVD Food Storage Secrets sometime this month. If you’d like a copy now, it’s available for a gift of any amount this month.

Have you witnessed to a Mormon, Jehovah’s Witness or Catholic recently?

Let’s not forget the need to reach out to those in the cults in this late hour. Just think of it. One day it will all be over. The door will be closed. And you’ll think back to the time you could have done more but didn’t. Or in some cases, could have done something but didn’t. We are all held accountable before the Lord for that which we know and that which we are capable of doing. Take the time and look through our resource list and pick out 1, 2 or 3 CDs or DVDs for a gift of any amount and either learn from them to witness better or send them directly to the lost person you know or both. Feel free to make copies! Or if you want, just give me the names and addresses of those you want something sent to and we’ll send it to them for you. NOTE: you’ll find other cults under our section (more mainstream cult groups).

The Atheism Debate

For years the ever increasing atheists in this country demanded from the government they be given a National Atheist Day in America. It was finally given to them but guess on what day. April 1st. April fool’s Day! As you probably know, Scripture tells us “The fool has said in his heart, there is no God”. Yes, God does have a sense of humor! This debate actually took place on an April fool’s day and I’ve tried to air it during the week of April fool’s day ever since. The debate is between Ray Comfort (the Christian) and Ron Barrier (the atheist) so here we have Comfort vs. Barrier if you can believe that! If you would like a copy of the DVD, it’s available for a gift of any amount this month.

Project Blue Beam

In last month’s newsletter I made mention of this but since then it’s been aired and wow! I believe this was the first time this information has ever been aired on any Christian radio! This DVD exposes how even NASA has no small part to play in this major end-time deception. In 1st Thes. Ch. 4 we read of our blessed hope or the Rapture of the Church. Then in 2nd Thes. Ch. 2 we read about the coming of the anti-christ and in verse 11 we read how God will send them a strong delusion that they will believe THE LIE. So who is THEY and what is THE LIE? Some say THEY are those who missed the Rapture and THE LIE is the means to explain away the Rapture and help to set up the prophesied one world government for the anti-christ. Today we have the technology of using laser beams being pointed up into a higher atmosphere to create holograms in the sky. These can also be sent down from satellites to do the same. This could explain why there have been so many sightings of UFOs. You’ve heard the stories where people see lights in the sky, which either just disappear or are whisked away into the night sky with no sound at all. Well of course not! Holograms make no sound! Remember when NASA shot up rockets? Not so much anymore. So what are they doing? Have you noticed that on some TV stations as the History Channel #2, which has been bombarding us with all of this UFO stuff, including alien abductions also now has programs as the NASA Files doing the same? You can also do a word search on the internet for this and you’ll be surprised how many are trying to expose this.

Those of you on the 30 Club already have this DVD. Watch it and share with others! For those who are not and would like to obtain a copy, it’s available for a gift of any amount this month.

30 Club

We still have our 30 Club going. Anyone wishing to obtain everything we air each month (almost always DVDs) which is an $80 value, may do so with a gift of $30 or more each month. If you would like to join up, now would be the time to do so. Just be sure to include a NOTE LETTING ME KNOW when you write along with your phone number in case I need to call you. Also, you might want to have the 30 Club packages sent to a friend, relative or your church each month. We can do this too! Just send us the name/s and addresses of those you wanted added to the mailing.

Again, please send me your phone number or email address if you have one in case I need to ask you a question on something.

Prayer Request… And perhaps a call from you?

Okay, here’s the situation. Watchman-type ministries have been dropping like flies for a while now. As far as I know, I am the last Ex-Mormon on any AM or FM Christian radio in the world. But last month for the first time in over 15 years I had the opportunity to add another station. As I had been thinking and praying about this, I got a call by a man named Jess Spurgin who is a representative for many Christian stations. He looks for Christian radio ministries with potential to possibly expand. He told me of the possibility of going on a station in Phoenix, AZ. There’s actually two there owned by the same company. The one I took most interest in was KXXT-AM. This was because the Mormons are taking over Arizona and are building another Mormon temple in Phoenix and they already have one in Mesa. Not to mention there’s tons of (fundamental) Mormons in those areas. These are those who still practice polygamy and even some are self appointed Mormons that believe it is their job before God to kill Ex-Mormons like myself. It looked like it was going to go through but was stopped by the owner. She told me she didn’t have an open time slot that would work for me but if something came up, she’d let me know. I’m looking for either 8-10 AM or early afternoon near Southwest Radio Church with Noah Hutchings. Please do pray accordingly that IF it’s God’s will, this will happen. You could also call the owner telling her you heard we might go on there, how you like the broadcast and ask if she’s going to have us on. Her name is Annie at (602) 296-3600. If you get her voice mail, just leave a message. Thank You! -Jim

Want to be a part of the ministry?

Some of you might be wondering what you could be doing for the Lord but just not sure how. Well, here’s something He might be able to use you in and all you need is a phone, an email address, a little time, a love for the lost, a love of the Lord, and the love of being a fellow watchman (or watchwoman) for the Church. Sometimes I just don’t have enough time to do what I need to and would really appreciate one, two or maybe three people to help out. Sometimes it might be as simple as asking you to do a little research on a topic and get back with me on it. The fringe benefits are getting to know more that most of what’s going on in this late hour and has a great retirement plan for all eternity! So if you’re interested, give me a call on the ministry line at (719) 630-1222 or email me at cultbuster7@yahoo.com and leave me your phone number and tell me a little about yourself.

Ending Note…

Once again I want to thank those of you who help this ministry continue through your prayers and gifts of support. You guys are the real heroes and are greatly appreciated!

Yours because His:

Jim
