Herescope

Late the second night I was walking down the hotel hallway talking with a friend. Suddenly we came upon a couple entangled in a passionate embrace in the doorway to the woman’s room. It was apparent they had been drinking heavily as they had abandoned any sense of restraint. We quickly walked on but when we got back to our room we broke down in tears. The couple in the embrace were not married – to each other – and they were high-profile leaders. They didn’t see that their sin of adultery was part of the problem!

The next day after I returned home I got a phone call about midnight. It was from another leader in the movement, someone who had been overseeing my state work. She demanded that I immediately deny that I had seen what I had seen.

That would mean telling a lie. I told her I could not deny what I had seen with my own eyes, but that I had no intention of broadcasting gossip about what I had witnessed. She then told me that she would do everything in her power to destroy me. And she began to work on it. A few months later I resigned from my position because it became clear that in her attempt to destroy me she was ruining an entire organization. [1]

• Professing Christian women went to the abortionists, some more than once. One Christian woman explained that she had to cover up the sin of adultery. She feared harm to her reputation in her small town community. Another Christian woman asserted that her career, and the career of the baby’s father, would have been damaged if their affair had become known.

• A highly respected evangelical leader, who had been a prayer partner of ours, shared that she had previously worked in an abortion clinic. Startled by this admission, we inquired about her repentance. She believed that this was a ministry, she said, because she held the hand of the lady undergoing the procedure and prayed for the baby that was dying. Another abortion clinic worker told us that she was helping women who were needy. She felt we were in the wrong by being so “judgmental .”

• One day a troubled minister confessed that he had taken his girlfriend to an abortion clinic because he thought it was his duty as a good man to support his woman during this time of trial. It had never occurred to him that he had directly assisted in the killing of his own child. He was devastated for many days, but later backslid into the same sins that had led to his original act of immorality – pornography and fornication.

• We heard reports of Christian mothers who coerced their daughters to undergo abortions to camouflage their promiscuity. In several churches elders relied on abortion to cover secret sins in the church leadership. There were Christian counselors and pastors who recommended abortions. Some were simply silent. They didn’t speak out to defend the baby’s life, following the humanistic model for non-directive psychology.

• Occasionally we counseled women who had undergone abortions, but who had never been told the truth. Many of these women were emotionally devastated and experienced great loss. This included Christian women who had relied on IUD’s, abortifacient birth control pills, or otherwise consented to a medical procedure which caused their fertilized embryo baby to die before implantation in the uterine wall. Despite the obvious loss of life, we knew of only one Christian doctor who didn’t routinely prescribe these abortifacients. Other Christian doctors made referrals for abortions. One doctor privately told me that she feared the pressure of her medical peers.

These examples are noteworthy and astonishing for one reason: these people all claimed to be “pro-life.” They voted for pro-life candidates and supported pro-life legislation. Some believed themselves to be prophets, having a special anointing from the Lord for spiritual discernment. We were alarmed. Something was going terribly awry. People who were supposed to be against abortion were participating in the very sins that contributed to the problem. What had gone wrong?

We searched for answers. Gradually over a period of many years we began to understand that abortion was merely the tip of a massive iceberg. What was underneath the church’s participation in abortion? Some Christians were engaging in flagrant sins such as adultery and fornication. Lurking under those sins was often concupiscence, lasciviousness, uncleanness and inordinate affection. But we also found other, more troubling answers. [Keep reading this original article HERE] [1]

Flagrant sin entangles Christians and prevents the body of Christ from being salt and light to the world. This was the case in the Old Testament, when the prophet Jeremiah asserted that the people "have only done evil before me from their youth" (32:30) and " have turned unto Me the back, and not the face: though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them, yet they have not hearkened to receive instruction. But they set their abominations in the house, which is called by My name, to defile it" (32:33). [emphasis added]

Jeremiah’s reference to abominations is idolatry. The pagan idols were grossly sexual and vulgar, and the forbidden spiritual-sexual practices of the Canaanites culminated in the horrors of infant sacrifice, literally burning live babies in the fire – "they caused to pass through the fire all that openeth the womb" (Ezekiel 20:26). Furthermore, Ezekiel 16:20 tells the scandalous story of sexual immorality culminating in the slaying of "thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto Me, and these has thou sacrificed unto them [gods, idols] to be devoured." And Leviticus 20 details the Old Testament laws regarding any "that giveth any of his seed [children] unto Molech… to defile My sanctuary, and to profane My holy name" (v. 2-3). [2] Molech was a hungry god with an insatiable appetite who demanded human babies.

Abortion is increasingly being referred to as "sacred," and in this context we began writing about it on Herescope. No longer was it just an issue of immorality and injustice, but it is now being treated as a religious rite. The late Pastor Larry DeBruyn and I published an article warning about this on September 23, 2017 titled "Oprah Magazine: God’s ‘in’ Abortions?" and Pastor Jim Jenkins followed up with his December 2, 2017 article "Un-Sacred Spaces: Theology to Justify Abortion."

It therefore seems no accident that upon the signing of the new abortion law in New York that a phallic symbol would be lit up atop a prominent skyscraper. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo lit up the One World Trade Center in pink to celebrate the passage of a New York’s so-called Reproductive Health Act. The newly passed abortion law in New York allows non-doctors to perform abortions and repeals legislation that would have protected babies all nine months from being killed, including permitting infanticide! The bill’s horrifying consequences were described in an Open Letter to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo:

Contrary to what its proponents say, the RHA goes far beyond Roe vs. Wade in its aggressive extremism. Granting non-doctors permission to perform abortions does nothing to advance the security and health of women. Condoning coerced or involuntary abortions by repealing criminal sanctions even in cases where a perpetrator seeks to make his partner “un-pregnant” through an act of physical violence does not represent any kind of progress in the choice, safety or health of women. Removing protection for an infant accidentally born alive during an abortion is abject cruelty, something most people of conscience would deem inhumane for even a dog or cat. Finally, allowing late-term abortions is nothing less than a license to kill a pre-born child at will. [3]

First, the “sons of God” are claimed to be fallen angels (demons), who descended to earth to physically procreate with human women. This corrupted the human genome, producing an alternate race to the family of Adam, which was neither fully human or fully demonic. Because the Hebrew word for “giants” is Nephalim, this supposed race is known by that name.

The Bible is clear, however, as to why God destroyed the world. The very next verse (5) states, “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” The word “man” is “Adam” in Hebrew, clearly indicating that the Adamic race was committing the evil, not the mythical Nephilim.

First, when Jesus answered the disciples in Matthew 24:37 regarding the timing of his return, he stated “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Thus, if Nephilim were busy corrupting human DNA in the days of Noah (Genesis 6), then surely they must be corrupting human DNA today, in preparation for the Lord’s return.

However, Luke 17:26 gives a little more detail to conditions preceding His return, namely, that it will be as in the days of Lot where they “did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded.” There was rampant sexual immorality in Sodom and Gomorrah. Genesis 13:13 explains that “the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly.”

Third, since Nephilim DNA was supposedly reintroduced again after the flood, this would mean that many humans alive today have DNA inherited from ancient Nephilim. Such a prospect is frightening indeed considering that the Lord Jesus Christ came to save only the family of Adam, not of Nephilim. If Nephilim cannot be saved, then some people today who think they are saved may be totally deceived, and others who may want to be saved, simply cannot.

Of course, this is preposterous. Jesus himself said “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:15) He continued in verse 16 with the well-known promise, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Jesus never indicated the existence of any another race other than the family of Adam.

Nephilim theory of one sort or another has been identified in gnostic teachings as far back as the early church, and it was consistently rejected by careful students of the Bible. It was popularized in the last century by William Branham (1909-1965), who taught the “serpent-seed” doctrine that claimed the Devil himself had sexual relations with Eve in order to give birth to Cain.

There are many twists and turns to this false Nephilim doctrine, and different teachers may have slightly different versions. Notably, however, it has spread like wildfire throughout the modern church and many are believing it without checking the Biblical text to see if it is true. Paul McGuire is simply one of many who are promoting through books, DVDs, videos and conferences. For those, it has become big business. Some other notable individuals who have promoted the Nephilim theory include Tom Horn, the late Chuck Missler, L.A. Marzulli, I.D.E. Thomas, Douglas Hamp, Gary Stearman, John Peck, Terry James and Steven Quayle.

The Bible exhorts Christians to “avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.” (Titus 3:9) and to “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15) Paul further commands Timothy to “shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.” This is good advice for all born-again Christians who stake their future on the Word of God.

In conclusion, it is my hope that the reader will understand the reason why it is impossible for me to participate in the 2019 Red River Prophecy Conference alongside Paul McGuire, where my appearance would be interpreted as approval by many attendees and online viewers. It is my sincere hope that Paul will reconsider his Nephilim doctrine in light of the clear teaching of the Bible.
