Zero Hedge: It was a bumper day for John McCain when on Friday Donald Trump’s Republican nemesis gloated as Trump’s “art of the deal” collapsed in the last minute, after the President and Ryan-led effort to repeal Obamacare suffered what appears to be a terminal setback.
In the wake of Trump’s misfortune, McCain renewed his calls on Friday for a return to a legacy neocon status quo, when speaking at the Brussels forum, said that the world “cries out for American and European leadership” through the EU and Nato, and said that the EU and the US needed to develop “more cooperation, more connectivity”. more…
Opinion: We posted this headline on Saturday while Editor and I, along with Vason and his wife, were at a prophecy conference.
My first thought was that it is past time for John McCain to retire. But on second thought, John McCain is part and parcel of the world’s globalists despite his having been raised an Episcopalian who now attends church services at the North Phoenix Baptist Church, a Southern Baptist denomination.
How can a Baptist be a globalist?
After leaving Catholicism, Editor and I were determined to not get involved in another denomination. I remember asking one church group why there was such a big difference among Bible believers, only to get a polite laugh.
We learned to put our faith in Jesus Christ and not a denomination and searched for a Bible church with no frills or legalism.
Globalism is making its way into Christian denominations as is the LGBTQ agenda and a tolerance for Islam, while Bible prophecy has been pushed more and more to the back of the church.
The great Apostle Paul taught that gathering together with other Christians is beneficial, but as we approach the end of the age that too can become fraught with danger.
Revelation 2 and 3 teaches that the final church of Laodicea follows the church of Philadelphia. Jesus said that Philadelphia was the only church with an open door. Philadelphia corresponds with the Evangelical church that began in the 1800’s and just happens to be the church that blesses Israel.
But Laodicea is apostate. It waters down the Gospel and teaches there are many paths to salvation.
The writer of Hebrews said this “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
And what day is approaching? The second coming – of which we are warned in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 that in the last days perilous times would come.
