  • Final Countdown: The Mark Of The Beast Global System Is Preparing To Launch The Metaverse, And You Need To Have Nothing To Do With It

    The Antichrist is not yet on the scene, but his global Mark of the Beast System is already well underway, and in fact, quite close to being as much to be completed as you could expect to see without the Beast physically being present. I know the Church will be removed in the Pretribulation Rapture before his arrival, but allow me to take a moment to warn you about something you need to avoid at all costs – the Metaverse. “And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight...
  • "The Wealth You Leave and the Wealth You Receive" (Mark 10:23-31)

    “The Wealth You Leave and the Wealth You Receive” (Mark 10:23-31) Today Jesus speaks to us about wealth. He speaks of the wealth you need to leave in order to enter the kingdom of God. And he speaks of the wealth you receive when you do enter. And so our theme this morning: “The Wealth You Leave and the Wealth You Receive.” Wealth is a subject that interests everyone. Wealth is something the rich have but want more of. Wealth is something the poor don’t have but want. And those of us in the middle? We may say we don’t...

    “The Story of the Rich Young Ruler” (Mark 10:17-22) Today we have “The Story of the Rich Young Ruler.” It’s a story of idolatry, of the false gods that people have. But it’s also a story of love, the love that Jesus has for sinners, that he calls us to give up on our idols and to follow him in faith. Because that’s the only way that you and I will ever gain eternal life. “Come, follow me,” Jesus says, “and you will have treasure in heaven.” The story of the rich young ruler. We find this story recorded in...
  • "Wisdom from Above: Humble Yourself, Serve Others" (Sermon on James 3:13 – 4:10 and Mark 9:30-37)

    "Wisdom from Above: Humble Yourself, Serve Others" (James 3:13 – 4:10; Mark 9:30-37) In the Epistle for today, St. James asks, “Who is wise and understanding among you?” Well, I suppose all of us would like to be considered wise and understanding. To have people compliment us on how smart we are and what good decisions we make. And in the Gospel reading for today, Jesus says, “If anyone would be first.” Well, I suppose all of us would like to be first. We like it when we’re in the top spot. To be wise, to be first, to be...
  • "Jesus Speaks His 'Ephphatha' to Us" (Sermon on Mark 7:31-37)

    stmatthewbt.org ^ | September 5, 2021 | The Rev. Charles Henrickson
    “Jesus Speaks His ‘Ephphatha’ to Us” (Mark 7:31-37)In the Holy Gospel for today from Mark 7, people bring to Jesus a man who was deaf and had a speech impediment. Jesus says to him, “Ephphatha,” which means, “Be opened.” And, sure enough, the man’s ears are opened, his tongue is loosed, and he speaks plainly. Now what you’ll often get in sermons based on this text is something like this: “Friends, our ears are deaf to God’s Word, and our tongues fail to speak plainly the good news to our neighbors. We need Jesus to speak his ‘Ephphatha’ to us...

    Interview with Bishop Schneider: COVID rules may be ‘a kind of prefiguration’ of the mark of the BeastAs a former citizen of a communist country, the bishop is very much opposed to the 'sanitary dictatorship' that is being set up in so many countries under the pretense of fighting COVID-19. Paris, FRANCE (LifeSiteNews) — Bishop Athanasius Schneider is certainly the most outspoken bishop on the subject of abortion-tainted vaccines, but as a former citizen of a communist country – having lived as a child in a member state of the Soviet Union – he is also very much opposed to...
  • Is it possible that the enforced vaccinations are "the mark of the beast"?

    original to Free Republic | Aug 22, 2021 | Peter O'Donnell
    This is the question that may be partly responsible for vaccine hesitancy -- those who believe that the last days may be imminent are reluctant to take on the "mark of the beast." I think the general context is fairly well known. A seven headed, ten horned "beast" arises in the last days, is assisted by various other figures, makes an alliance with a great red dragon, and enforces a "mark" to be taken in the hand or forehead that is required for participation in the beast's "reign of antichrist" society. The vaccine qualifies in some estimations because you can...

    “A Great Storm, a Great Calm, a Great Fear” (Mark 4:35-41) Our text is the Holy Gospel for today, from Mark 4, the story of Jesus stilling a storm. It’s only seven verses long, but this story will take us from a great storm to a great calm to--perhaps surprisingly--a great fear. So let’s get in the boat now with Jesus and his disciples, under the theme, “A Great Storm, a Great Calm, a Great Fear.” First, a great storm. Our text begins: “On that day, when evening had come, [Jesus] said to them, ‘Let us go across to the...

    “Binding the Strong Man, Plundering His House” (Mark 3:20-35) When you were baptized, what did you get? Yeah, you got wet, sure. You had water poured on your head. But I mean, when you were baptized, what did you get, in the sense of what did you acquire? I’ll tell you what you acquired: You got an enemy for life. Did you know that? That when you were baptized, you gained a strong and powerful enemy who’s out to get you! You did! And his name is Satan, the devil. He is the “old evil foe” who “now means deadly...

    COVID-19 deaths in the US have hit their lowest level in 10 months, with an average of 600 per day. The last time the death count was this low was early July, before a second wave in the pandemic saw fatalities climb to an average of more than 3,400 a day in mid-January. With vaccination efforts helping stamp out the virus, more than half of states have seen deaths drop to the single digits or even zero on some days. Kansas reported no new virus-related fatalities from Friday through Monday, while Massachusetts celebrated the first time in nearly a year...

    ARLINGTON, Virginia, April 14, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Pentagon scientists have developed a gel-style, tissue-like microchip to be inserted underneath the skin, touted to be able to detect COVID-19 before an individual develops symptoms, prompting concerns about the manner in which such technology would be used to infringe upon people’s liberties and usher in a bio-security state.The revelation came as part of a CBS 60 Minutes report on April 11 titled “military programs aiming to end pandemics forever.” Dr. Matt Hepburn of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which is dubbed the Pentagon’s “department of mad science,” explained how he...

    The Biden administration is set to launch a COVID passport that would track Americans that took the vaccine, despite warnings by civil rights advocates. With breakneck speed, the left has finished their transformation of America from a land of Civil Rights to a land of dictator’s demands, & there is no opposition to the Democrats and RINOS in DC in sight. “The Biden administration & private companies are working to develop a standard way of handling credentials — often referred to as ‘vaccine passports’ — that would allow Americans to prove they have been vaccinated against the novel coronavirus as...

    “‘Follow Me’: The Crown of Discipleship” (Mark 10:17-22) Today we conclude our series on the “Follow Me” sayings of Jesus in Gospel of Mark. Last week we took up “The Cross of Discipleship.” Today our theme is “The Crown of Discipleship.” And that’s a good order to go, because there is no crown without the cross, and there is no cross we endure that will not be far outweighed by the crown we will receive. And both the cross and the crown come as we follow Jesus. Last week we talked about the cross. Now we take up the crown....

    “Great Servant” (Mark 10:35-45) Are you familiar with what an oxymoron is? An oxymoron is when you put two words together that seem to contradict each other. The two ideas don’t belong together. The classic example is “jumbo shrimp.” Another would be “plastic silverware.” Or “civil war.” Well, today in our text we have two concepts put together that don’t seem to fit. It’s the idea of being “great,” placed side by side with the idea of being a “servant.” Those two thoughts would seem to cancel each other out. But not the way Jesus tells it. And not the...

    “‘Follow Me’: The Cross of Discipleship” (Mark 8:34-35) “Take up your cross and follow me.” Today in our series on discipleship in the Gospel of Mark, we take up the cross. We take it up, not just as a topic for a sermon, but we take it up as a way of life. Because in our text, Jesus tells us what being his disciple will be like: “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for...

    “‘Follow Me’: The Candidates for Discipleship” (Mark 2:13-17) We just came out of an election year, in which we had to make choices among all sorts of various candidates. There were many candidates running for many different offices, at local, state, and federal levels. And in the campaign ads, each candidate would tout his or her qualifications for the position they were seeking. Because a candidate for office ought to have certain qualifications. But how does that work when we’re dealing with qualifications for being disciples of Jesus? What qualifications do candidates for discipleship need--what do you need--in order to...

    Bill Gates and MIT unveil quantum dot technology to mark children’s skin so they can be scanned for vaccine compliance and anything else to be determined later. The MIT researchers have been funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the National Cancer Institute. This new technology uses nano-crystal dyes called quantum microdots. These patterns of dye contain data that can for now mark that a vaccine has been received into the person’s body.This pattern of dye is embedded under the skin as a vaccine is injected into the human recipient. Therefore, these dots can be injected into the...

    Story at a Glance: Tech giants with deep ties to the U.S. national security state — Microsoft, Oracle and the MITRE Corporation — have partnered with healthcare companies to create the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI) to advance the implementation of digital COVID-19 vaccination records. The initiative is essentially built on a common framework of digital vaccination “wallets” called SMART Health Cards that are meant to “work across organizational and jurisdictional boundaries” as part of a new global vaccination-record infrastructure. SMART Health Cards are expected to include a person’s complete name, gender, birth date, mobile phone number and email address in...
