    The Pillar ^ | 5/12/22
    A Washington priest talked his way last month into meals, drinks, and an overnight stay at the barracks of the British soldiers who protect Queen Elizabeth II, prompting an ongoing Army security review in the U.K. British media reported last week an intruder claiming to be a priest gained entry April 27 to the Victoria Barracks of the Coldstream Guards, who protect the British monarchy at Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace. The intruder told soldiers he was friends with a unit chaplain, and had served in Iraq. He was soon invited for drinks and dinner in the Officers’ Mess, and...

    A Case for Bill Gates as Antichrist & Yuval Harari as False Prophet One of the biggest mysteries in these latter days is who will emerge as the Antichrist and False Prophet. Because of the pre-Tribulation Rapture of true believers in Jesus Christ, we won’t be here to see how these positions are filled, but the intrigue swirls around those of us who study Bible prophecy. Others in the church exhibit an ignorance to it all, or conversely, an “I don’t care” attitude because “it’ll all pan out in the end.” I’ve touched on the possible identity of Antichrist previously...

  • After Russia opens fire on Israel in Syria, Rabbis consider possible 'Gog-Magog Scenario'

    Media reports claim that a Russian S-300 anti-air battery opened fire on Friday night against IDF warplanes operating over northwestern Syria, marking the first time Russia has actively interfered with an Israeli air attack in Syria. The fact that the maneuver originated in the ‘north’ and was executed by Moscow has rabbis in Israel noticing several parallels to the War of Gog and Magog as prophesied in the Book of Ezekiel. Rabbi Ken Spiro, a historian and Senior Lecturer and Researcher for Aish HaTorah Yeshiva, stated that this new development adds new and conflicting elements to regional politics and could...

    "The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in iniquity and born in sin. Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money and control credit, and with the flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again. Take this great power away from the bankers and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this would be a better and...

    A pro-abortion group is claiming they've been 'permanently banned' from TikTok, saying that it happened after they posted a video excoriating the Catholic Church for what it calls 'enslavement of women.' The group Ruth Sent Us - in reference to late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg - announced the ban on a backup TikTok account Saturday. Ruth Sent Us has caused controversy several times in recent weeks, interrupting church services and organizing crowds to picket homes of current Supreme Court justices. The group recently doxxed the Washington, D.C.-area addresses of the six conservative Supreme Court Justices and even organized...

    The congregants of an Orange County church are being hailed as heroes after they managed to hogtie a gunman who went on a shooting spree on Sunday afternoon in what authorities are describing as an act of 'exceptional heroism and bravery.' One person was killed and five others were shot at Geneva Presbyterian Church in Laguna Woods, California, about 55 miles southeast of Los Angeles. Six people at the house of worship were struck by gunfire after the shooter, said to be an Asian male in his 60s, opened fire at around 1:25 p.m. That man is now in police...

    On May 1, on Russian TV, the media executive often called "Putin's mouthpiece" urged the Russian president to launch a Poseidon underwater drone with a "warhead of up to 100 megatons." The detonation, said Dmitry Kiselyov, would create a 1,640-foot tidal wave that would "plunge Britain to the depths of the ocean." The wave would reach halfway up England's tallest peak, Scafell Pike. "This tidal wave is also a carrier of extremely high doses of radiation," Kiselyov pointed out. "Surging over Britain, it will turn whatever is left of them into radioactive desert, unusable for anything. How do you like...

    A majority of Christian pastors in the United States do not hold a biblical worldview, according to surprising new research from pollster George Barna, who says the data shows a spiritual awakening is “needed just as desperately in our pulpits as in the pews.” The survey, released Thursday by the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University, shows that only 37 percent of pastors in the U.S. hold a biblical worldview. Among senior/lead pastors, 41 percent possess a biblical worldview – the highest percentage within the sub-groups of pastors. Less than one-third of associate/assistant pastors (28 percent), teaching pastors (13...

    On May 4, 2022, Pres. Biden reacted to the leaked U.S. Supreme Court ruling that will overturn Roe v. Wade. Then he said the MAGA crowd will go after many other privacy rights and freedoms. He asked, “What are the things that are going to be attacked? Because this MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history—in recent American history.” Most readers know that MAGA is an acronym that stands for Make America Great Again. It was Donald Trump’s slogan during his presidential campaign. As I understand it, Pres. Biden was saying those that...
