For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
Sun Myung Moon, the Moonies, the Unification Church, and ‘True Parents Organization’, are all examples of Matthew 24. This man, and I emphasize the word “man”, is a tool of Satan himself. He is NOT God, as he has claimed to be so often. His eternal fate is pretty certain unless he repents of his blasphemous lying before he died on September 3, 2012. Many thousands of people throughout the world have been seduced by his powerful deceit.
Maitreya, the “world teacher”, is expected to initiate his ‘Day of Revealing’ anytime now, and is reported to have been making a number of special appearances in third world countries. Funny thing though, the website dedicated to everything the character states that “Maitreya’s appearances have been halted temporarily since 2002.”
David Koresh, former leader of the Branch Davidian cult in Waco, Texas, believed he was the Lamb of Revelation 5 because he received revelations from God in how to interpret the seven seals needed to be broken in order to open the scroll. 75 people died in the inferno that ensued during the attempted takeover of the compound by the FBI and ATF on April 19, 1993.
Marshall Applewhite convinced his 21 followers (the Heaven’s Gate cult) that they were all extra-terrestrials who came to Earth on an expedition to disseminate their beliefs, and that if they committed suicide together they’d be able to leave their earthly ‘shell’ bodies and catch a ride away from Earth on the spaceship that was following Hale Bopp comet on March 23, 1997.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine.
– 2 Timothy 4:3
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
– Matthew 7:22, 23
Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these [apostates] also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
– 2 Timothy 3:8
