“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:3,4
The Great Falling Away
The scriptures say that in the end times, in the last days, there will be a great ‘falling away’ of believers from bedrock bible doctrine. The above quote from 2 Thessalonians clearly shows that as does this quote from Paul to Timothy:
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 4:3,4
In the end, it is the Christians who no longer have a desire or hunger to be fed from the word of God, but instead choose to side with the devil and make a mockery of the church that Jesus Christ shed His own blood for. Nothing shows that as clearly as our story on the Harlem Shake in the Church of God.
The Harlem Shake is demonic
The dance starts with the leader wearing a mask shaking in front of the people, and then they all join in for 30 seconds.
The words to the song are: “Con los terrorista” (With The Terrorists).
There are several groups and organizations doing the “Harlem Shake:”
- Saddleback High School Ministry
- Liberty University
- Destiny World Outreach Center
- Vineyards Student Harlem Shake
- City Church Downtown
- Celebration Church Jacksonville FL
Run away, run far away
I know this article will burn up some of our fan base, but let me be very honest with you. Now The End Begins was created by direct commission from the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to be a watchman in these last days. We are to sound the alarm when the Enemy appears on the radar screen. So let us get right to the point:
If you belong to or attend a Christian church that encourages demon-inspired ‘dancing’ to the Harlem Shake, you are in church with the Devil Himself. The Holy God of Israel is a million miles away from all of that foolishness. The ‘shake’ is performed with a masked man inciting a crowd to gyrate their bodies by unseen forces to jungle-themed music. Bright lights flash, artificial smoke is set off and an hypnotic, ever-lowering bass beat causes the dancers to bang their heads. Are you so seared in your spirit by the filth you have surrounded yourself with that you can no longer recognize the Devil when he is laughing in your face??
If you think that this is the work of the Holy Spirit, then you do not know the Holy Spirit, neither are you led by Him. To see this in the Church of God is, to me, proof positive that the great falling away is operating on all eight cylinders. The Harlem Shake comes from drug-using, heavy-drinking, fornication-glorifying rappers whose garbage has NO PLACE in the Church of Jesus Christ.
If you do this in your church, you need to REPENT immediately and beg God for desecrating His House of worship. Return to your first Love, and remember what it was like when the shed blood of Jesus made you clean and new. Get back to a DOCTRINAL study of God’s word from the King James Bible, and get back on your knees in fervent prayer.
If this is happening in your church, leave
Satan desires to sift you and grind your papier-mache faith into a fine, dusty powder. Christian, you are UNDER ATTACK, and are losing the battle. Do you really want to be found gyrating to the Harlem Shake when Jesus Christ returns? Really?
Are you so deluded by the world, the flesh and the Devil that you think the Harlem Shake and David dancing before the Lord are the same thing?
Think about it.
Crowds in excess of 30,000 expected
Tim Tebow will deliver the Easter sermon on Sunday at the Celebration Church in Georgetown, Texas, and the expected turnout is one more indication of Tebow’s enormous popularity.
The church told local TV station KVUE that it’s erecting bleachers on its 60-acre outdoor space for what it expects to be a crowd of as many as 30,000 people.
“Obviously it’s our Super Bowl,” said Joe Champion, pastor at the Celebration Church. “Easter is the resurrection of Christ, which we celebrate in our faith.
We feel like it’s going to be a testimony to the community. We want it to be a family event.”
Tebow recently got a mani-pedi (first time I’ve ever typed that phrase) to get himself ready for the festivities, but Pastor Champion wants to make clear that it’s not all about glorifying Tebow.
“There will be the sacredness of Easter,” Champion said. “It’s not a Tim Tebow show. It’s not about a celebrity. There’s really only one celebrity that we are going to honor and highlight.” source – NBC Sports
