POWER OF DARKNESS: The Satanic Temple Is Now Officially Recognized As A ‘Church’ With Tax-Exempt Status From The Internal Revenue Service

The Satanic Temple has been officially recognized as a church by the Internal Revenue Service complete with tax exempt status.

The Satanic Temple has been officially recognized as a church by the Internal Revenue Service, three months after taking Sundance by storm as the subject of the documentary “Hail Satan?”

Well, we have now lived long enough in these end times to see satanism in general, and the Satanic Temple in particular, rise to the forefront of our culture. They have been given tax-exempt status by the IRS, and officially recognized as a ‘church’. And guess what? Things are only going to continue heating up and getting worse. Why? Because we are the generation who will live to see the Rapture of the Church that will take place just prior to the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble, that’s why.

“…but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.” Luke 22:53 (KJV)

Our apostle Paul tells us in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 that there are two things necessary for the Pretribulation Rapture to be triggered. The first thing is that the great ‘falling away’ must happen, that is to say a falling away of the Church from teaching and preaching the truth of the bible. One only need to look around at the professing Christian church to see that that is already happening.

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 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 2:1-4 (KJV)

The second thing our apostle Paul tells us is that we will see the Antichrist step out from the shadows right before the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church is launched. So if we are as close as I think we are, seeing Satan’s pathetic little minions taking their place on the world stage is a great confirmation that we are almost ready to fly. In the meantime, hand out tracts and witness to as many people as possible so that some may be saved before Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines leaves the runway. Because after that…well, you know.

The Satanic Temple Says it’s Been Recognized as a Church by the IRS

FROM THE WRAP: According to an announcement from “Hail Satan?” distributor Magnolia Pictures, the  temple is now eligible for the tax-exempt status given to other religious institutions. The latest documentary by Penny Lane, “Hail Satan?” follows the history of the Satanic Temple and its colorful protests in the name of religious freedom and separation of church and state, including a push to have a Baphomet statue placed on the grounds of the Arkansas State Capitol next to a proposed statue of The Ten Commandments.

“In light of theocratic assaults upon the Separation of Church and State in the legislative efforts to establish a codified place of privilege for one religious viewpoint, we feel that accepting religious tax-exemption — rather than renouncing it in protest — can help us to better assert our claims to equal access and exemption while laying to rest any suspicion that we don’t meet the qualifications of a true religious organization,” said Satanic Temple co-founder Lucien Greaves in a statement. “Satanism is here to stay.”

If Satan Is As Great As He Thinks He Is, Then Why Does He Pretend To Be Jesus In The Time Of Jacob’s Trouble?

How it must gall Satan to know that, even after the Rapture of the Church when there won’t be one saved person on the Earth for a period of time, that he still cannot come as himself because even unsaved people really don’t want him. For a creature who is nothing but evil and ego, what a crushing blow this must be!

statement on the temple’s web site said that the organization had recently received notice from the IRS affirming its status. A spokesperson for the IRS was unable to confirm the recognition to TheWrap, citing regulations.

For years, The Satanic Temple vocally opposed tax exemption for religious institutions; but Greaves said its stance changed after Donald Trump signed an executive order requiring the Department of the Treasury to not take any “adverse action” against religious institutions, including tax penalties and denying them tax-exempt status.

“It appears that now is a time in which a more principled stand is to meet our opponent on equal footing, so to as balance, as best we can, what has been a frighteningly asymmetrical battle,” wrote Greaves in May 2017.

“With the religio-political landscape suddenly so grotesquely deformed from what we previously recognized, it seems reasonable that non-believers should adjust their language accordingly, and insist that atheistic and secular non-profits, advancing a distinct religious opinion and/or opinion upon religion, are themselves rightful beneficiaries of religious tax exemption as well,” Greaves added.

Israel Defense Forces Announce The Start Of ‘Operation Breaking Dawn’ After 200 Rocket Attacks By Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Is Hamas Next?

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The Israel Defense forces on Friday launched Operation Breaking Dawn in the Gaza Strip, following days of tensions in the wake of the arrest of the leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Judea and Samaria.

Israel announced the start of ‘Operation Breaking Dawn’ to deal aggressively with terror threats and rocket attacks from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad which began in earnest yesterday. Over 200 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel, with the IDF responding late into the night, seeing the death of 15 PIJ militants to date. The IDF has reportedly deployed Iron Dome missile defense batteries to central Israel in anticipation of barrages and has called up 25,000 reserve troops.

“As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.” Isaiah 31:5 (KJB)

Meanwhile over in Tbilsli, Georgia, we see something called the Peace Cathedral, which houses places of worship for Muslims, Jews and Christians. It’s based on a similar model called the House of One with plans laid in 2011, and construction started in 2021 in Berlin. We rightly understand this to be the One World Religion of Chrislam, and will be led by Antichrist and the False Prophet during the time of Jacob’s trouble. What began with Rick Warren’s ‘Peace Plan’ 20 years ago, has come to stunning fruition under the work of Pope Francis, Mohamed bin Zayed and the Abraham Accords.

Israel launches ‘Operation Breaking Dawn’ against Islamic Jihad in Gaza

BREAKING UPDATE: Rocket sirens sound in the southern part of Tel Aviv and the central cities of Rishon Lezion and Holon, for the first time since violence escalated between Israel and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group on Friday. source

FROM THE JEWISH NEWS SYNDICATE: Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid said in a statement that the goal of the operation was “the elimination of a concrete threat” against civilians, as well as the targeting of terrorists and their sponsors.

“Anyone who tries to harm Israel should know: We will find you,” the premier said.

A senior Israeli source was quoted by media as saying that the mission was initiated with a view to thwarting an imminent large-scale terrorist attack.

According to the IDF, an airstrike on Friday killed senior PIJ commander Tayseer Jabari, who replaced Baha Abu al-Ata as the head of the terrorist group in northern Gaza after the latter’s assassination by the Israeli military in 2019.

The IDF said that some 15 PIJ terrorists had been killed in initial strikes targeting anti-tank missile operators and snipers in Gaza.

Meanwhile, the military has declared a “special situation” throughout the home front and warned residents within an 80-kilometer (50-mile) radius of Gaza, including those living in Tel Aviv, that there was a risk of rocket attacks.

Palestinian terrorists indeed began firing projectiles towards Israeli civilian areas at approximately 21:30 local time, as sirens blared across the country. So far, since the operation began, 71 rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza, 9 of which fell inside the Gaza strip, according to the IDF.

The IDF has reportedly deployed Iron Dome missile defense batteries to central Israel in anticipation of barrages and has called up 25,000 reserve troops.

“We will not allow anyone to threaten or harm the citizens of Israel. Whoever tries to do so will get hurt,” Defense Minister Benny Gantz said in reference to the ongoing military campaign. READ MORE

Prince Charles Opens The 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games With An Idol Of A Raging, Fiery Bull Prompting Comparisons To Baal Worship

Published

on

2022-commonwealth-games-opening-ceremony-raging-bull-end-times
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The Baal-like ‘Raging Bull’ was so popular with people attending the Commonwealth Games that a crowdfunding campaign was set up to preserve it to be admired for future generations

One of the things I find most interesting about the idolatrous ‘raging bull’  is not only its close association with Baal worship, but the fact that Prince Charles was the man opening the games. If you recall, we’ve mentioned multiple times on our Prophecy News Podcast about Prince Charles calling for an unnamed man to be given trillions of dollars to wage a military-style campaign. Now he presiding over a massive 32-foot high idol of a fiery bull, what do we call that, progress?

“And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.” 1 Kings 18:26 (KJB)

Whatever happened to shows and ceremonies where people were happy, upbeat and optimistic? That seems to be now completely wiped from our collective memory. Everytime you turn around, you are assaulted with dark, menacing imagery that seems be be not only sending you hidden messages, but perhaps a harbinger of the arrival of something worse? Time is almost up, Christian, if you’re planning on doing something for the Lord, better get after it.

In the Bible, the bull is connected with Baal worship and idolatry from Babylon and Egypt

FROM ISRAEL 365 NEWS: The centerpiece of the opening ceremony of the 2022 commonwealth games was a 10-meter tall mechanical bull. Fifty people spent more than five months building the monstrosity dubbed “Raging Bull.” This stood in stark contrast to the games themselves, which were heavily promoted as “The Friendly Games.”

The dramatic display, directed by Steven Knight, had the bull led into the Stadium by dancers in a dramatic production with a politicized presentation of history, as described by Wales Online:

The bull is led into the Stadium by underpaid, overworked female chain-makers of the Industrial Revolution, trapped by their own circumstances as they produce the bonds that hold others in the slave trade. The women break free via a minimum wage strike of 1910. The bull itself breaks free because of its huge stature. Stella, the hero of the Opening Ceremony, calms it down by offering it love and light. The emotive section ends with the bull eventually moving towards mutual tolerance after it is riled up once again and cries in pain.

As an expression of this love, the female athletes gather around and embrace the bull.

A creepy element was added at the last minute when the names of the 21 victims killed in the 1974 Mulberry Bush and Tavern in the Town bombings by the Irish Republican Army were inscribed on its headpiece. The organizers failed to inform the families of the victims who expressed annoyment in the media.

The bull is massive, requiring a 17-ton vehicle to move it around the stadium. Due to its size, the bull cannot be stored away, so the organizers plan to dismantle it. But the bull has a devoted following, and a petition has been set up to save it.

The popular attraction for the creation could be rooted in the bull being one of the oldest forms of idolatry. When Moses delayed in coming down from Sinai, the Children of Israel resorted to creating a golden calf, a form of idolatry they had witnessed in Egypt. In ancient Egyptian religion, Apis was a sacred bull worshiped in the Memphis region and was later adopted by Alexander the Great. The Canaanites worshipped a bull as the depiction of the fertility god Baal. Jeroboam erected two golden bulls in the northern kingdom of Israel. READ MORE

Artificial Intelligence Image Generator DALL-E 2 Was Asked What The Last Selfie Would Look Like, And It Looks A Whole Lot Like Revelation 9:6

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Horrifying images of what the ‘last’ selfies taken on Earth may look like have been depicted by DALL-E 2, an Artificial Intelligence image generator. It looks like Revelation.

The Artificial Intelligence image generator known as DALL-E-2 was asked to produce images of what the last, human selfie ever taken on earth would look like, and wouldn’t you know it, those last selfies look a whole lot like passages in the book of Revelation. In chapter 9, we see human zombies, under mind-numbing duress and agony, desperately looking to die while death flees from them, prolonging their agony. Those AI generated images pretty much show you an illustrated example of what that might look like.

And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.” Revelation 9:6 (KJB)

You’ll never get past that dusty, old, antiquated King James Bible, not even with a 21st century AI image generator, so don’t even try. That Book is so far ahead of tomorrow’s headlines that, even when the end come, they’ll never catch up. The scripture of truth’s depiction of the true condition of lost mankind during the great Tribulation is ‘right on the money’ every time it opens it’s mouth. You should read it sometime, and then you too will know what comes next.

Artificial Intelligence program predicts what last selfie on Earth will look like, and it looks like Revelation

FROM THE NY POST: The haunting images, which look straight out of a Hollywood horror blockbuster, were posted to the “Robot Overloads” TikTok account, which provides “daily disturbing” AI-generated images to nearly 200,000 followers.

The creepy images show disfigured humans with elongated fingers and oversized eyes. One features a man maniacally staring into the camera as a huge explosion goes off over his shoulder. Another shows a frightening skeletal figure framed by a huge plume of smoke.

“OK no more sleeping,” one TikTok user replied.

“That’s exactly how it’s going to be,” another surmised.

One user suggested one of the images actually appeared realistic, while some said the disturbing potential future may be closer than we think – perhaps as early as 2024.

“Average day in Ohio,” one person quipped.

Some said the images appeared to show the aftermath of a nuclear bomb, but the account had entered “selfie of the end of the world” into the AI image generator. A second post showed more distressing scenes featuring several mutilated figures in a largely abandoned war-torn hellscape. One bloodied person’s eyes even moved in the disturbing creation.

“Moving?!” one commenter noted. “Like it wasn’t scary enough?”

“School will remain open,” another joked.

The DALL-E 2 AI system, created earlier this year, can “create realistic images and art” from a user’s description, according to its website.

“DALL-E 2 has learned the relationship between images and the text used to describe them,” the site explains. “It uses a process called ‘diffusion,’ which starts with a pattern of random dots and gradually alters that pattern towards an image when it recognizes specific aspects of that image.” READ MORE
