There are some mighty strange things coming out from what is supposedly a conservative website WorldNetDaily.com (WND) that I used to look to on a regular basis to see what the liberal news networks omitted.
Well Christians who love the Bible – BEWARE of WND! The latest being promoted on WND is the “Soaking Prayer” which is more Contemplative Spirituality and Mysticism (CSM).
This is nothing new for WND with their open promotion of the Nephilim prophecy garbage, and a plethora of related stuff from Tom Horn, Chuck Missler and crew. A simple search will prove it but here are a few links to those in the discernment work exposing it for what it is – more doctrines of devils! WND in my estimation is NO FRIEND of Biblical Christianity!
1 Timothy 4:1 “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;”
Other things to note is Joseph Farah publisher/editor of WND is a buddy of Chuck Missler also exposed as a proud plagiarist (link) and speaker together with Chuck Missler, Tom Horn, L.A. Marzulli to name a few. A Google search will show these men and others together in a line-up for prophecy conferences and one sold out in July this year.
“Writing books, and theorizing, about the Devil is exactly what he wants – Jesus is no longer in the spotlight. Publishing and selling such books serve the purposes of Satan since believers are seduced to take their eyes off the Lord Jesus Christ and to focus them on the kingdom of darkness.”
The rock singer’s song “Bad Moon Rising” has as much truth as the latest “blood moons” coming from the propheteers (deliberate play on profiteers) from such teachers as John Hagee, those running Prophecy News Watch (advertised “The Blood Moon Prophecy” this week) and the cultish Hebrew Roots movement.
Without going into this latest pseudo-prophetical teaching, I simply believe it is more nonsense complete with sign seeking and date setting comparable to that of debunked Harold Camping.
Don’t be a BLIND SHEEP and send these people your money! LISTEN to the Great Shepherd Jesus Christ who succinctly answers such utter nonsense with a SHARP REBUKE to the spiritual leaders (Pharisees) of that time not once but TWICE:
Matthew 12:38-40 “Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”
Matthew 16:3-4 “And in the morning, [It will be] foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O [ye] hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not [discern] the signs of the times? A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.”
These ridiculous notions about the blood moons are just more ploys as many in the past to fleece the naïve’ Christian of their money!
SAVE YOUR MONEY or support a good solid Bible Believing church that is not filling its member’s heads with false prophecies such as this and many others. Keep your eyes on Jesus, read your Bible and share the Gospel with all who will listen and stay away from such fables purported to announce the Lord’s return. He WILL return in HIS time not ours.
For more on this topic here are two links that have been shared with me providing some valuable information.
Warning About John Hagee’s Blood Moons:
Explanation How These Eclipses are Not Unusual
I have heard from other friends the source of this latest barrage of blood moons are from the Hebrew Roots Movement which presents many other dangers including cult like tendencies. Other friends have posted warnings about John Hagee’s heretical teachings, those are another matter – beware! As for Prophecy News Watch, watch who they’re endorsing including those with the weird teachings of the Nephilim and more.

What Happens When the Authority of Sacred Scripture is Ignored? – by Possessing the Treasure Mike Ratliff
The Great Down Grade Controversy in the latter part of the 19th Century was between Charles Spurgeon and a few orthodox ministers who stood against the trend towards modernism that was sweeping through England. This also coincided with the last years of Spurgeon’s ministry. That conflict had many similarities with the battle we are in the midst of right now with the movement into “relevance” and “the new evangelism.” Just as in Spurgeon’s day, there seems to be only a remnant that is standing against this onslaught against the truth for the sake of being man pleasers. (Click title for rest of article)
An article today from Mike Ratliff’s blog Possessing the Treasure, speaks volumes with this one short article to the nutty day we live where so many big name teachers have run amok into a list of false teachings propagated today. Those of us trying to hold the ground and pointing to what scripture says are the minority! But be of good courage, others have done the same as we should and stand firm!
2 Timothy 4:5 KJV “But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.”
3 John 1:9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.
Unlike the men in this article, I am giving credit where credit is due; first to the article Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty by Dave MacPherson, and second to the scholarly work done by Herescope. The purpose of this article is to show a clearly identifiable pattern within this group of men who adhere to pretribulation eschatology. A large number of names well known for their foundational role in establishing pretribulational and dispensational teachings are literally at the heart of what I am showing – I am merely connecting a handful of the dots to show conclusive proof of lies propagated for more than a century!
The following are excerpts from Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty where the word “plagiarize” or form of it was used:
John Nelson Darby:
In Sep. 1830 “The Morning Watch” (a journal produced by London preacher Edward Irving and his “Irvingite” followers, some of whom had visited Margaret a few weeks earlier) began repeating her original thoughts and even her wording but gave her no credit – the first plagiarism I’ve found in pretrib history. Darby was still defending posttrib in Dec. 1830.
You’ll learn that Darby wasn’t original on any chief aspect of dispensationalism (but plagiarized the Irvingites); that pretrib was initially based on only OT and NT symbols and not clear Scripture;
Tim LaHaye’s “The Beginning of the End” (1972) plagiarized Hal Lindsey’s “The Late Great Planet Earth” (1970).
Tim LaHaye’s “No Fear of the Storm” (1992) plagiarized Walvoord’s “The Blessed Hope and the Tribulation” (1976).
Tim LaHaye’s “Understanding the Last Days” (1998) plagiarized Lindsey’s “There’s A New World Coming” (1973).
Charles Ryrie’s “The Living End” (1976) plagiarized Lindsey’s “The Late Great Planet Earth” (1970) and “There’s A New World Coming” (1973).
After John Walvoord’s “The Blessed Hope and the Tribulation” (1976) brutally twisted Robert Gundry’s “The Church and the Tribulation” (1973), Gundry composed and circulated a 35-page open letter to Walvoord which repeatedly charged the Dallas Seminary president with “misrepresentation,” “misrepresentations” (and variations)!
Jerry Falwell, Ed Dobson and Ed Hindson:
“The Fundamentalist Phenomenon” (1981) by Jerry Falwell, Ed Dobson, and Ed Hindson heavily plagiarized George Dollar’s 1973 book “A History of Fundamentalism in America.”
Greg Bahnsen and Kenneth Gentry:
Greg Bahnsen and Kenneth Gentry produced evidence in 1989 that Lindsey’s book “The Road to Holocaust” (1989) plagiarized “Dominion Theology” (1988) by H. Wayne House and Thomas Ice.
David Jeremiah: and C. C. Carlson
David Jeremiah’s and C. C. Carlson’s “Escape the Coming Night” (1990) massively plagiarized Lindsey’s 1973 book “There’s A New World Coming.” (For more info, type in “Thieves’ Marketing” on MSN or Google.)
Paul Lee Tan:
Paul Lee Tan’s “A Pictorial Guide to Bible Prophecy” (1991) plagiarized large amounts of Lindsey’s “The Late Great Planet Earth” (1970).
Chuck Missler and Hal Lindsey:
This was when the Los Angeles Times revealed that “The Magog Factor” (1992) by Hal Lindsey and Chuck Missler was a monstrous plagiarism of Prof. Edwin Yamauchi’s scholarly 1982 work “Foes from the Northern Frontier.”
In 1996 it was revealed that Lindsey’s “Planet Earth – 2000 A.D.” (1994) had an embarrassing amount of plagiarism of a Texe Marrs book titled “Mystery Mark of the New Age” (1988).
This is the year I discovered that more than 50 pages of Dallas Seminary professor Merrill Unger’s book “Beyond the Crystal Ball” (Moody Press, 1973) constituted a colossal plagiarism of Lindsey’s “The Late Great Planet Earth” (1970).
Jack Van Impe:
A Jack Van Impe article “The Moment After” (2000) plagiarized Grant Jeffrey’s book “Final Warning” (1995).
All of the above is excerpted directly from Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty by Dave MacPherson; my excerpts are to show the clear pattern of plagiaristic genius of these men! MacPherson’s article goes more in depth exploring the dishonesty of these men with detailed evidence of the pretrib shady past.
Adding to this list is an recent article from Herescope providing 17 detailed exhibits demonstrating the mastery of plagiaristic technique by Chuck Missler, using the material of a deceased New Ager Michael Talbot.
So who deserves the award for the best method of stealing the research of others; using the material of at least two men who are deceased? Who is the most notable of a list of men going back to the beginnings of pretribulation teachings in 1830? Can you guess which of these plagiarists wins the dubious prize?
John Darby, Tim LaHaye, Hal Lindsey, Charles Ryrie, Jerry Falwell, Ed Dobson, Ed Hindson, Greg Bahnsen, Kenneth Gentry, David Jeremiah, C. C. Carlson, Paul Lee Tan, Chuck Missler, Merrill Unger or Jack Van Impe?
CHUCK MISSLER wins the prize hands down in my opinion! Below is only one of 17 exhibits of his using the material of deceased NEW AGER Michael Talbot.
TALBOT, pg. 21, The Holographic Universe: “Holography also explains how our brains can store so many memories in so little space. The brilliant Hungarian-born physicist and mathematician John von Neumann once calculated that over the course of the average human lifetime, the brain stores something on the order of 2.8 X 1020 (280,000,000,000,000,000,000) bits of information. This is a staggering amount of information, and brain researchers have long struggled to come up with a mechanism that explains such a vast capability.”
MISSLER, pg. 330, Alien Encounters: “The holographic paradigm also explains how our brains can store so many memories in so little space. The brilliant physicist and mathematician John von Neumann, who we met in Chapter 1, once calculated that over the course of the average human lifetime, the brain stores something on the order of 2.8 X 1020 bits of information. (Accepting the traditional estimate of the age of the universe as about ten billion years, that’s 1,000 bits for every second in the entire history of the universe!). This is a staggering amount of information, and brain researchers have long struggled to come up with a mechanism that explains such a vast capability.”
Herescope does a thorough job revealing the plagiarism being sold as God’s truth by MISSLER in his book Alien Encounters. Chuck Missler is passing off stolen NEW AGE teachings as Christian eschatology! More bad fruit from a long list of plagiarizing pretribbers!
Confusing messages to any discerning Christians! Albert Mohler and Rick Warren together is not the message Dr. Mohler should be sending! The Bible says,
Amos 3:3 “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”
Has Rick Warren suddenly changed his purpose driven ways? I don’t think so!
Excerpt from Apprising Ministries,
“Despite his claim to be orthodox, contra the Protestant Reformation, it’s an incontrovertible fact that Warren considers the apostate Roman Catholic Church to be a viable Christian organization:
“Now I don’t agree with everything in everybody’s denomination, including my own. I don’t agree with everything that Catholics do or Pentecostals do, but what binds us together is so much stronger than what divides us,” he said.
I really do feel these people are brothers and sisters in God’s family. I am looking to build bridges with the Orthodox Church, looking to build bridges with the Catholic Church,”… (as cited here, emphasis Apprising Ministries.)
From the out of this world Ufology, giants (Nephilim) and other weird theology here comes the biggest whopper yet! I already questioned the teachings of Chuck Missler preaching a pretribulational rapture (among others), Ufology, giant Nephilim add now that Dr. Chuck Missler commits the unpardonable sin of plagiarism!
Quoting the online Merriam Webster Dictionary Plagiarize/Plagiarizing:
- to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one’s own : use (another’s production) without crediting the source
- to commit literary theft : present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source
Hey but what’s a little plagiarism among friends!? But what friends!? Is it just a little plagiarism!? Many caught in the act of such things have stepped down from positions of leadership in shame – because it is most often a deliberate act to commit a fraud! This is one big example of such a fraud as Dr. Chuck Missler plagiarized a bona fide New Ager Michael Talbot! No, it is not a little plagiarism but a boatload of it as you will see with more than a dozen examples of almost word for word theft by Dr. Chuck Missler!
Tag teaming at times in the past together with Chuck Missler is another reviewed and warned about at our Biblical Discernment Ministries site, triple divorcee Hal Lindsey. I find it amazing how true the cliché is that birds of the feather flock together. The same can be said of Missler and the growing list of mystic nitwits promoting damnable false doctrines! Add now that Missler is directly bringing the New Age teachings of Michael Talbot into the church disguised in his invented pseudoscience.
I hereby recognize Chuck Missler’s Dis-honorary Doctorate of Plagiaristic Methods with an emphasis of New Age Thought by the Disreputable Nitwit University of Going Nowhere! May your shame be a lesson to any others peddling such lies as God’s truth!
Sadness is: biblical discernment found wanting,
Especially in people you once thought wise.
Ridiculous claims in spiritual matters,
Include Nephilim, Mars, and other fantasized lies.
Open your mind to the real world they say,
Universal oneness accepts everyone who tries.
Scripture has no part because it’s God’s Holy Word;
Light, exposing all that darkness defies.
Yield to God’s Word; His truth will open your eyes!
