United Methodist Church Will Split Into Multiple Denominations As Same-Sex Marriage Continues To Destroy The Professing End Times Christian Church

The United Methodist Church is expected to split into more than one denomination in an attempt to bring to a close a years-long and contentious fight over same-sex marriage.

Conservatives applauded back in February when the United Methodist Church body narrowly voted down the LGBTQ+P for Pedophile “One Church Plan’, but alas, the short-lived victory is coming to an end. Jesus tells us in Revelation 3 that the Laodicean Church Age, the last days of the professing church on earth before the Rapture, would look like this:

“I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.” Revelation 3:15,16,19 (KJV)

You wouldn’t know it to look at them now in their current sorry, apostate condition, but there was a day when the Methodist Church in America was an on-fire, bible believing church that for a time was the largest denomination in the US. But then they gave up their King James Bible in the early part of the 20th century, and it was all downhill from there. John Wesley would be weeping if he could see what the Methodists have devolved in to.

Funny thing. As more and more Christian churches give in to the LGBTQ+P for Pedophile mafia, as you will see in the video below, the homosexuals in the clergy are saying that now “true healing can come” to the Church as it “embraces same-sex union”. We live in such a distorted age when Christians have little to no idea what the Bible teaches so this type of thinking is being enthusiastically adopted as “progress”. It is an awesome and terrible thing to watch Bible prophecy unfolding and coming true, and if it doesn’t send a chill down you’re spine you might want to check up on your own salvation.

United Methodist Church is expected to split over gay marriage, fracturing the nation’s third-largest denomination

FROM MSN NEWS: The historic schism would divide the third-largest religious denomination in the United States. Leaders of the church announced Friday they had agreed to spin off a “traditionalist Methodist” denomination, which would continue to oppose same-sex marriage and to refuse ordination to LGBT clergy, while allowing the remaining portion of the United Methodist Church to permit same-sex marriage and LGBT clergy for the first time in its history.

The plan would need to be approved in May at the denomination’s worldwide conference. The writers of the plan called the division “the best means to resolve our differences, allowing each part of the Church to remain true to its theological understanding, while recognizing the dignity, equality, integrity, and respect of every person.”

The United Methodist Church is the United States’ largest mainline Protestant denomination and among the only remaining such churches that still does not perform same-sex marriages. The church has fought bitterly about LGBT inclusion for years, and leaders often feared the fight would lead to a schism.

Friday’s announcement came as new sanctions were set to go into effect in the church, which would have made punishments for United Methodist Church pastors who perform same-sex weddings much more severe: one year’s suspension without pay for the first wedding and removal from the clergy for any wedding after that.

Instead, leaders from liberal and conservative wings signed an agreement saying they will postpone those sanctions and instead vote to split at the worldwide church’s May general conference. They said the agreement was brokered by Kenneth Feinberg, the mediation expert who handled the compensation fund for victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, among other major negotiations.

The agreement pledges $25 million to the new “traditionalist” denomination, which will break away from the United Methodist Church, a group that is likely to include most of the church’s congregations in Africa, as well as some in the United States. In exchange, Friday’s announcement said, the new denomination would drop any claim to United Methodist assets, such as church buildings.

Any local church that wants to join the new conservative denomination would have to conduct a vote within a specified time frame, the announcement said. A church would not need to vote to remain United Methodist.

Churches that vote to leave could take certain assets with them. An additional $2 million would go to any other new denomination that wishes to split from the church. The plan also calls for $39 million “to ensure there is no disruption in supporting ministries for communities historically marginalized by racism.”

After the separation, the agreement said, the remaining United Methodist Church would hold another conference with the purpose of removing the church’s bans on same-sex marriage and LGBT clergy.

The 16 members of the negotiating team that reached the plan included bishops from New York, Florida, Louisiana, Ohio, the Philippines and Sierra Leone. The team also included leaders from the most pro-LGBT Methodist factions, including the Reconciling Ministries Network, and the most conservative, including the Wesleyan Covenant Association and the Good News movement.

A Vintage Mister Rogers Neighborhood Video Called ‘Everybody’s Fancy’ Causes Transgender Hysteria On Social Media Over Gender Identity Issues

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

An old video of beloved children’s television host Mister Rogers talking about boys being boys and girls being girls ‘from the beginning’ has gone viral, with some fans calling it a warning against transgenderism.

Just about everyone I know has fond memories of watching Mister Rogers Neighborhood when they were younger, a sweet, old-fashioned show about friends, family and the issues of life. One of those issues Mister Rogers addressed back in 1980 was the issue of gender. He sang a song called ‘Everybody’s Fancy’ about the immutability of the only two genders God created, emphatically speaking about the impossibility of one gender becoming another gender. This song raised exactly zero issues in 1980, here in 2023 Liberal heads are exploding. Fred Rogers was a Presbyterian minister, and the line of his song that says ‘Boys are boys from the beginning‘ is a beautiful hat-tip to the King James Bible.

“But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.” Mark 10:6 (KJB)

Part of the religion of the coming Antichrist is all the sickness and perversion we see everyday in the newspaper, like gender identity and transgender medical mutilation. If Mister Rogers Neighborhood was still on the air today, he would not be a beloved and fatherly figure, he would be booted off, cancelled, doxxed, and driven out of society on a rail. Was Mister Rogers warning us about the current transgender darkness? Sure looks like it. America has come a long way since Mister Rogers, and all of it down.

Vintage Mister Rogers Video Goes Viral amid Transgender Hysteria: ‘Boys Are Boys from the Beginning’

FROM BREITBART NEWS: The clip of Fred Rogers (a.k.a. Mister Rogers) first made the rounds on TikTok before moving onto Twitter and showed him singing his song, Everybody’s Fancy, about the differences between the biological sexes.

“Boys are boys from the beginning. If you were born a boy, you stay a boy. Girls are girls right from the start. If you were born a girl, you stay a girl, and grow up to be a lady. Everybody’s fancy, Everybody’s fine. Your body’s fancy and so is mine,” he sings in the more than 40-year-old song.

“Only girls can be the mommies. Only boys can be the daddies,” he also sings.

Another clip also resurfaced in which Fred Rogers appeared on late-night with Johnny Carson where he seemingly hinted that the song intended to teach kids about the differences of biological sexes to dispel any ideas about becoming or changing into something else.

“Sometimes children think that they might change — they might have to change after a while,” he said. “And you know, we laugh about that now, but it’s because we had that concern when we were little.”

“Yeah, because you’re really not sure and you thought maybe you’d become a girl, or a girl would become a boy, right?” Johnny Carson said in jest.

“Exactly,” responded Fred Rogers.

What the actual Fred Rogers thought of transgenderism nobody will ever know. In some ways, the resurfaced clip echoes a previous clip from woke leftist Bill Nye speaking of biological sex long before he went full-throttle pro-transgender on his Netflix series Bill Nye Saves the World.

“Inside each of our cells are these things called chromosomes, and they control whether we become a boy or a girl. Your mom has two X chromosomes in all of her cells, and your dad has one X and one Y chromosome in each of his cells…X you’re a girl, Y you’re a boy,” he said on his show. READ MORE

The Biggest Buzz In The Tech World Right Now Is Something Called ChatGPT And It Will Bring Our Global Society A Giant Step Closer To The End

Microsoft confirmed on Monday that it’s making a ‘multiyear, multibillion-dollar’ investment in OpenAI and ChatGPT, reportedly a $10 billion deal.

We’ve all done it, had an appliance that was malfunctioning, a trick we were trying to figure out in Photoshop, a supplement we needed to know the benefits and interactions of, or just had any type of question about anything, and found the answer online in very short order. Such is the power of the internet, and it has changed all our lives in ways great and small. Now the internet has a new superpower, ChatGPT, created by a company called OpenAI, and it’s not here to help us, it has arrived to take over. The prophet Daniel saw this coming over 2,500 years ago, don’t you love it when the world catches up to your King James Bible?

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Daniel 12:4 (KJB)

ChatGPT stands for Generative Pre-trained Transformer, and it utilizes AI, or artificial intelligence, to answers questions, write books and articles, and to deeply search the internet to compile information for you in mere moments that would take the human brain many hours or days to accomplish. ChatGPT launched as a prototype to the public Nov. 30, 2022. Within five days, more than a million people were using it. By comparison, it took Netflix 3½ years to get that many people on board. Facebook didn’t crack its first million people for 10 months, and Spotify went five months before it reached that million user mark. Microsoft confirmed on Monday that it’s making a “multiyear, multibillion-dollar” investment in OpenAI, and while they didn’t disclose the specific dollar amount – it’s reportedly a $10 billion deal.

For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.” Proverbs 2:6 (KJB)

How big is all this? Bigger than you could ever imagine, and now that we live in a world that is highly if not completely dependent on the internet to function, OpenAI and ChatGPT is going to ensure that artificial intelligence begins the process of taking over. As a Bible believer, I see the rising spirit of Antichrist behind all of this, leading ever-forward to the Mark of the Beast. This is the 21st century equivalent of the Tower of Babel, man attempting to ‘outsmart God’ to create a paradise on earth. God wrote the Bible to give us wisdom, knowledge and understanding, artificial intelligence is Satan’s counterfeit of that. Already, companies and businesses all over the world are using ChatGPT to create the content you read on some of your favorite sites, and guess what? You didn’t even know a human didn’t write it.

Going forward, we are preparing a series of Podcasts showing you just how deep this rabbit hole goes. OpenAI, ChatGPT and all its many sisters are right up our alley, and we will bring you everything you need to know on the subject. As I have always said, when it comes to current events and the end times, NTEB readers and listeners are some of the most well-informed people on the face of the earth because we have the King James Bible to give us wisdom, knowledge and understanding of the times we live in, and that’s a blessing…TO THE FIGHT!!!

I Cannot Wrap My Head Around The Senseless Beating Death Of Tyre Nichols By Memphis Police Other Than To Say It’s The Rising Spirit Of Antichrist

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Nearly three weeks after Tyre Nichols was violently arrested in Memphis, Tennessee, city officials released disturbing footage of his fatal confrontation with police. Bad cops, or the rising spirit of Antichrist?

Two events stand out from my formative during the time when I grew up in North Jersey in the 1970’s. The first being an event in 8th grade where we were shown raw footage filmed by the US Army the day the concentration camps in Nazi Germany were liberated, that broke my heart for the Jewish people. The second was when I started to read history books and saw for the first time how blacks had been treated in America with “colored drinking fountains”, “whites only” restrooms, and Rosa Parks refusing to ride in the back of the bus. I was very young at the time but it made a strong impression on me. Then flash forward to getting saved in 1991, and learning that the first Gentile who got saved in the Church Age was a black man, the Ethiopian eunuch. Throw Tyre Nichols into the mix, and there’s here’s a lot to process here, but bear with me.

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.” John 8:44,45 (KJB)

Tyre Nichols was black, pulled over by black cops who were surprisingly aggressive, and when it was all over, Tyre Nichols was dead. The videos of the events of that night were released on Friday, and it makes the cops look really bad. I was raised to have respect, and fear, of the police, but every barrel of apples has a few bad ones. I have not been pulled over all that many times in my life, but when I have been, I did everything they ask me to do with no resistance at all. They have the cuffs, the baton, the tazers and the guns, I want no part of any of that.

What could compel 5 blacks cops who pull over a black man, to treat him so harshly and cruelly? Tyre Nichols was not physically intimidating, and appeared to pose no threat of any kind to them. And yet, as you will see in the video below, they set on him like ravening wolves eating raw meat. Why? Back in 2020, we published an article reconciling the strange and unsettling events we were all of a part of with the released and rising spirit of Antichrist. In light of everything that has happened since, I feel that article has aged quite well. I feel that spirit all around, I see it in the eyes of strangers, it’s an oppression that is palpable. We who are saved know we are living in the closing moments of the Church Age, waiting for that blessed hope of our removal in the Rapture. But while we wait, this lost and dying world is preparing themselves to meet Antichrist, and you will continue to see many more senseless and stomach turning events like what happened to Tyre Nichols in the meantime. Pray for the Nichols family that God would comfort them, and pray that those 5 cops would get saved, that’s what a Bible believer would do.

Tyre Nichols: What the video footage reveals, and questions that remain

FROM ABC NEWS: The graphic footage of Memphis police officers beating the 29-year-old following a traffic stop was released Friday “because it was important to the community and to Tyre’s family, as they want the world to be their witness and feel their pain,” Shelby County District Attorney Steve Mulroy said in a statement. The release of the videos sheds more light on what happened to Nichols on the night of Jan. 7, three days before he died. Though it also prompts more questions about the incident, which has sparked nationwide outrage.

Three videos from body worn cameras were shared to Vimeo by the city of Memphis on Friday with the warning: “Footage contains graphic content and language. Some may find offense. Viewer discretion is advised.” A fourth video — soundless surveillance footage from a city pole camera — was also released, amounting to about 67 minutes total.

The footage has helped answer questions about what happened that night, in particular for Nichols’ family. His mother, RowVaughn Wells, said that police initially told her that her son had been tased and pepper sprayed, though the extent of his injuries in the hospital indicated that something more violent had happened. For his stepfather, Rodney Wells, the video “justifies” that Nichols was no threat to the officers.

Tyre Nichols and His Killers

The five disgraced Memphis Police Department officers, who are also Black, have been fired and charged with second-degree murder and other crimes in Nichols’ death three days after the arrest. The video released Friday renewed questions about how fatal encounters with law enforcement continue even after repeated calls for change.

Top left to right: Officer Tadarrius Bean, Tyre Nichols, and Officer Emmitt Martin III; bottom left to right: Officers Justin Smith, Demetrius Haley, and Desmond Mills, Jr.

It’s unclear what led up to the traffic stop in the first place and why officers responded so aggressively. The first video is from the vantage point of an officer arriving at the scene as Nichols is being pulled out of his car while stopped at a red light.

In the fourth video, as officers recounted the traffic stop, one alleged that Nichols nearly drove into oncoming traffic, while another claimed that Nichols swerved and nearly hit his car while he was attempting to pull him over.

Police said he was pulled over for reckless driving, though Memphis Police Chief Cerelyn Davis said she has been unable to substantiate that.

“I do believe that the stop itself was very questionable,” Davis told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos during an interview Friday on “Good Morning America.” “We have been unable to verify the reckless driving allegation.”

Tennessee state Rep. G.A. Hardaway said questions have not been answered regarding the timeline and logistics of the case and called for clarity regarding the chain of command as it pertains to notification of car chases and violent encounters.

“There is more to the story, and I think that the citizens of Memphis and Shelby County deserve to know the whole story,” he said during a press event Saturday. READ MORE
