This is big news. It is not every day you see something that you can definitely say is prophecy fulfilling right before your eyes, but what happened on January 21, 2014 with the pope sending a message to charismatic leaders in America, and they responding enthusiastically that "the protest is over" (meaning they are willing to go back to the Mother of Harlots), is amazing to see.
I highly recommend everyone to study this out, to see what the talking points are, how the enemy of all truth and righteousness is making his words softer and smoother than ever.
The following is from Kenneth Copeland's blog:
On Jan. 21, 2014, Kenneth Copeland Ministries was blessed to receive a personal video message from Pope Francis. The attendees of KCMs annual Ministers Conference were greatly inspired when Bishop Tony Palmer (charismatic Anglican), a longtime friend of Pope Francis, presented the popes greeting and a message he prepared specifically for them!
Kenneth Copelands Response to Request by Pope Francis:
Recently, I received a message from Pope Francis in which he asked that, as a ministry and part of the Body of Christian believers, we pray for him. In 1 Timothy 2:2, the Bible teaches that we are to pray for all that are in authority. It is scriptural that we do so. And, therefore, it is our duty to honor the Popes request and, as a Body of believers, join our faith with his by coming together in unity and agreeing with him in his quest, and for what is in his heart: the unity of the Body of Christ. So, in obedience to our Lord and His Word, we join our faith with that of Pope Francis as we pray with and for him, that he will receive the righteous desire of his heart, according to the words of Jesus in Mark 11:24: That whatsoever things you desire when you pray, believe you receive them, and you shall have them. Our desire, along with that of Pope Francis, is in the fourth chapter of the book of Ephesians: Till we all come in the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God unto a mature man unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. This is very important to us all, as the Body of Christ.
Join with us in prayer for unity in the Body of Christ throughout the world!
Jesus is Lord!

Pastor Doug Batchelor has put up an excellent dissection of what this means. He makes it clear that this is a call for Protestants to lay down their arms, and to come back into the "loving" fold of the Roman Catholic Church. It is so scary to see the many Protestant attendees clap and agree with the pope's request!!
Surely we are near the end times, when Satan will work with all deceivableness of unrighteousness.
By Ellen White in 5Testimonies p451:
By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violationof the law of God, our nation will disconnect herself fully fromrighteousness. When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across thegulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach overthe abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influenceof this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle ofits Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shallmake provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions,then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working ofSatan and that the end is near.
excellent webmaster... this was on walter's station yesterday and doug b. thought it important to critique it also...
watched it last night... a must see for everyone
I'm so glad that Jesus is coming soon
There is one thing for sure and for certain, any who are in Him and He in them cannot be in unity with error. Christ is not in error and will not be present in any congregation that error is entertained and believed.
The SDA Church structure needs to take heed and get back to weeding it all out, but is the hour now too late? I don't see any shadow of reform.
1Jo 4:5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.1Jo 4:6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
1Jo 4:4 ¶ Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
Wildfire destroys brush and small young trees and brush and houses not built upon cliffs of solid rock. What is large grown solid and eternal may get soot on them from the fires but all the things not of God's planting will be consumed, while what God doeth it shall stand forever.
Daniel 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
Imitate Luther at Wartburg search the Scriptures & SOP and make accurate God Fearing SDA Bible studies on getting ready for the Second Coming distribute as God opens the way.
9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
15 ¶ And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not;
16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:
17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.
18 And many other things in his exhortation preached he unto the people.
19 But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him for Herodias his brother Philips wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done,
20 Added yet this above all, that he shut up John in prison.
21 ¶ Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,
22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.
1st Peter 4:
12 ¶ Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christs sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other mens matters.
16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
1st Peter 5:
1 ¶ The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:
2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
3 Neither as being lords over Gods heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.
4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
According to the truthful absolutes of these passages, Jesus Christ is the Chief shepherd of the world Church and all the channels down to every local Church and local company, He is busy threshing and fanning them all upon His floor. All the giants are in contention against Jesus Christ or striving to uphold Jesus in this battle, do not run upon that floor among their towering feet, there are many giants there that would not care if squashing you and your involvement will not aid Jesus , but only impede Him as He keeps from trampling you in the battle.
All around you close to home are thousands never yet hearing the everlasting gospel + the present SDA truths we are familiar with.
As a kind hearted medical missionary go out and find them, help them, win their confidence, then educate them with what God has given His SDA people across decades and centuries.
Great strife is coming upon the SDA Church and people, and great strife is coming into the SDA Church and people.
Malachi 3:18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
The battle will not be much longer, the loyal and the disloyal will soon be separated by an impassable gap. The worldwide purging, fanning, winnowing will be over, then the early rain will have done its work and the latter rain shall be bestowed upon all who are moistened and prepared because of receiving the early rain.
This is where historicism movements have failed, they tried to do the purging, fanning, winnowing which only the Chief Shepherd is able to do, and iniquity abounded, and they videoed it, watched it, spread it, and unwittingly well meaningly helped Satan cause genuine divinely sent love wax cold in thousands of SDA hearts, discouraged them, weakened their hands, wore out their life forces.
Better they had understood what God gave us as a people, lived it, put it to use, shared it everywhere, and Satan's wrath would have heated up the kitchen the good dough from the good wheat crushed for the sake of Jesus, would have risen well and the oven of controversy and affliction counted as blessings from God would have baked that resulting bread well and the Latter Rain would have furnished drink indeed, and eating the faithful bread from Heaven and drinking in Heaven sent water, the world would have prepared for harvest.
26 And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;
27 And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.
28 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
29 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.
