Church In Darkness

WEB Notes: Day in and day out we continue to see the headlines escalate. Christianity is removed from our sight and sin is embraced. Just the other day a “Satanist” was allowed to slam Christianity for racism and violence in a mainstream media news piece no less. Of course a Christian would never be given that platform to make the opposite claim and if they did it would be called “hate speech“. I find it very sad how people cannot use just a little common sense to see these things for what they are…

As a people, as a country we are tearing down the fabric of this nation to appease a few, a few that hate our Heavenly Father and hate the history that has made this nation the greatest on earth. We divide ourselves over politicians who tweet so called governmental policy. We divide ourselves over small differences in beliefs and we feel like we are justified in doing so.

As Christians when we fall for these traps we are playing right into the hands of the enemy. We allow the dark powers of this world to succeed. No wonder our Father said, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge,” (Hosea 4:6). We are to be wiser than the serpent, but many have long forgotten that or do not know Christ even told us that (Matthew 10:16). Of course Satan is that serpent (Revelation 12:7-9).

No wonder so very few are sealed in the End Times for the Epic Battle during the Tribulation. Many have been confounded by the events of the world, confounded by false religions and closing their mind off from truth.

With our nation crumbling before our eyes in a literal and spiritual sense what can you do to make a difference? Far more than you probably realize

You can share truth your family and friends when you find it. You can encourage them, share the Bible with them when you are able and when it makes sense.

You see, you will reach places and people that we can never reach. You are the many membered body of Christ. We all share a part in that work, no one is incapable of partaking of it. We all have our own ways and gifts and we need to start using them now more than ever.

The school is claiming it has absolutely nothing to do with the latest war on historical statues, but a California Catholic school is receiving a bit of blowback after following through with a plan to remove all but 18 of their 180 statues and other “Catholic icons” including one beloved statue of Mary and the Baby Jesus.

San Domenico School in San Anselmo, California is hearing from upset parents after taking down the statues, with many viewing the decision as caving to political correctness. The Marin Independent Journal quoted frustrated parents who are alarmed at the trajectory the school has been on:

  1. Looking at the comments …… you Christians better UNITE and stand Together ….. the MUSLUMS do and they will overwhelm .

    Onward, Christian Soldiers

    by Sabine Baring-Gould, 1834-1924 Music: Arthur S. Sullivan, 1842-1900


    Suppressed by Judas Iscariots posing as “priests”


    1. Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,

    with the cross of Jesus going on before.

    Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;

    forward into battle see his banners go!


    Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,

    with the cross of Jesus going on before.

    2. At the sign of triumph Satan’s host doth flee;

    on then, Christian soldiers, on to victory!

    Hell’s foundations quiver at the shout of praise;

    brothers, lift your voices, loud your anthems raise.


    3. Like a mighty army moves the church of God;

    brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod.

    We are not divided, all one body we,

    one in hope and doctrine, one in charity.


    4. Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane,

    but the church of Jesus constant will remain.

    Gates of hell can never gainst that church prevail;

    we have Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail.


    5. Onward then, ye people, join our happy throng,

    blend with ours your voices in the triumph song.

    Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ the King,

    this through countless ages men and angels sing.


    • I love that song, love many of the old hymns. I would remind you that the Muslims are not the true enemy of Christianity, however…that would be the Kenites.

  2. The Bible says everyone will pick a side willingly. Sometimes ‘Christians’ can be just as much of a pretender as the devil himself.

  3. Why not rename the school San Homo Satanica? I hate to say it but 3 of my sons attended Catholic schools in the SF Bay Area & New Orleans & I was appalled as far back as 15 years ago at the increasingly obvious Liberal/Communist/Perverted viewpoints of the almost completely Lay/Non-Religious faculty & associates which led to fights & arguments with my ex-Wife as to why we should support these institutions financially. Sadly today many Public schools have far more resources & depending on the school are equal or Superior to the “Catholic” schools of today. As a Parent You Must stay involved in your Children’s education to point out incorrect programming & Political mind think which is contrary to fact as well as your own personal moral. I used to Believe in the Catholic Church now I know it is The Holy Satanic Church as evidenced by the current Pope Satan who kicked out Pope Nazi. The Church died with Pope John Paul II. Read The Bible believe in Jesus & Ignore the Churches & False Prophets.

    • This brings it home a bit. We should always be involved with our children’s education as you pointed out. Then when you find issue with whatever Christian walk you have, if it cannot be correct move on and stay rooted in the Bible. Anything less is unacceptable to our Father.

  4. YESHUA HA’MASHIACH is the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE,choose Eternal Life in Peace with the Coming King Of Kings.
    Let the False Prophet Pope lead his flock to Hells gate.The Messiah is at the door and soon the TRUTH will be clear for All to see.

    • Thanks for the comment Nathan. I see a lot of bashing of the Catholic faith here. I wonder how many people actually know someone of the Catholic faith? I do and this person is one of the nicest people I know, outstanding family friend. Are people mis-led by false teachings? Of course they are. Is the Catholic church the only one to blame? Absolutely not. I think we all need to remember this before we go pointing that finger around.

      • Very true. I grew up in a protestant denomination and it is filled with doctrine that is false. But there are many fine people associated with that denomination, including all of my family. I’d never throw the baby out with the bathwater and bash that group as a whole. I still consider myself a protestant so naturally I have some problems with some Catholic teachings, but I know some fine Catholic people that are great citizens and yes, I do believe they are Christians. If you reject someone because of the faith they grew up in, you could be rejecting a person that would have eyes to see and ears to hear were you to share truth with them.

        • While the apostles were out spreading the Gospel.We would be blind to think Satan would not send his minions first into the Roman Catholic Church to create a counterfeit Christianity. Satan is not against religion, he wants the traditions of men to dictate customs to ensnare us. Our Father tore the veil from top to bottom when Christ flesh death on the cross that as His child we can go to talk to Him directly. Religion has been trying to stitch it up ever since. Use gentleness to plants seeds when speaking to people in other groups.

          • Never heard it said that way Ginger, very true analogy, like maybe the Pope that speaks for God
            Mat 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
            as usual most people are mislead by the doctrine of man

            that never get around “What SAYS THE THE LORD”

            I agree most who attend should not be judged by there Church doctrine, like the old saying goes “JUDGMENT STARTS AT THE PULPIT”

        • Great points Jack. Think about it… How many of us that know in depth truth about the Word were born into it?

          Probably very few. We all come from different walks, different versions of our Faith and through years of study it led us to where we are today. I will add that walk continues as we are ever learning in the scriptures.

          While some of us are far down that path, some are only starting out. We should never forget that we too started at some point and we were green and/or mis led at one point in time.

  5. Brandon, I think I see your point. And are you saying that , hmmmm, it is difficult to be able to put in print, however, I feel like a fool but here goes, , what we focus on is what we become. If we see Yahuwshua as ( fill in the blank ) then, we become like that, which we see Him as. If we ‘look to’ or ‘see’ ( whatever we believe in ) then , that, whatever that ( that ) is then we begin to conform to that ‘belief’ we hold to be true.
    A comedian once said, ‘Remember, Jerry, it’s not a lie if you believe it.’ As I meditated upon that phrase, I began to see the ‘church’ in that position, i.e., that position of ‘it’s my life and I can believe how I want to’ and ‘who are you to try to tell me about God, I see your sin’. We have been trained and programmed by the ‘church’, by public school system, by government, media and business to believe in this ‘me first’ philosophy rather than the ‘lay down your life and follow me’ and when someone begins to step out in faith, the ‘christians(still wanting to be)at ease’ criticize anything different from what they have been lead to believe in and do not or can not hear what the truths are because of their preconceived and programmed response that they were told to believe. Now, when the scripture is spoken, the preplanned and prepared canned speech is already playing in their mind and that is what they believe in because, remember, Jerry, it’s not a lie if you believe it. The corollary or sad truth to that statement is , ‘It’s not even asking the right question o begin with.’ It’s a total deviation from the truth and just because you believe it does not make it the truth.
    Okay, so that’s somewhat of what I was trying to say, but , I hope it’s not too obtuse.

    • You are not a fool Thomas, you are trying to learn and understand no big deal. Thank you for the comment.

      You brought it home there in the end.

      “just because you believe it does not make it the truth”

      The main point from our notes above is this statement,

      “We divide ourselves over small differences in beliefs and we feel like we are justified in doing so.

      As Christians when we fall for these traps we are playing right into the hands of the enemy. We allow the dark powers of this world to succeed.”

      Now certainly religions within Christianity do not have just small differences, there are big ones! I realize that. Though it seems like many here that commented missed that entire statement I just quoted. Instead of coming together, many allowed themselves to be divided. How quick we are to always point out how wrong someone else is without looking at our selves in the mirror. If I mentioned the rapture, easter bunnies and so on how many on here would believe or do those things and justify it? They are not true, but to them they are true and they would stand up for those ideas.

      The problem is when we cannot critically think and as you pointed out we get stuck in these belief boxes. Boxes that have only certain truths on the inside and when people are in those belief boxes that is all they see. Their version of reality. However, that is only their version of it. The true reality is on the other side which some will never see because they refuse to take the time to open their box and poke their head out. Why? Because it would mean they removed some of their “truth”. One of those walls in that box is going away and right away once it is opened.

      I sure hope that makes sense.

  6. Catholics are NOT true Christians. So, it is amazing they are finally telling you the truth.

    • Incredulously Yours,

      August 26, 2017 at 8:58 PM

      And YOU are dead WRONG….


      John 3:16 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.

      • Judgement will start at the pulpits. God knows who’s who.

      • He said, if you love me you keep MY Commandments, but He says some only keep the traditions of men.

        • I will not judge others as to their beliefs or their church doctrine or their traditions, the statement you made is contrary to the teachings of Christ, there is a heavy penalty for those who fallow Christ and choose to judge others as to what they believe, Christians pointing fingers at each other making accusations causes nothing but division, go ahead make Satins day after all he is called the ACC– USER,

          Mat_7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
          For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

          in Luke 6:37 it is even more clear, did you not know that even a non beliver can be saved, what!! a non Christian, Let God do the JUDGING and keep you eyes and ears focused on our LORD.

          • Good points Richard, though many hold onto the traditions of men and the church. Those are just facts. If it doesn’t line up with the Word that makes it pretty clear. Though we can never judge the heart of someone, but we should be aware of their actions.

            For our readers here is a previous Bible Q&A on the subject: Can you explain “judging others”?

          • Thanks Brandon, good read on Q&A. also enjoying you time line series, looking foreword to your completion, the series has a nice flow to it and i hope you find time for your thoughts on 2018 that you talked about awhile back.

          • No problem. Glad you are enjoying it Richard, it has been a fun project. We are getting there.

            I am sure we will do another Signs and Seasons article to wrap up this years events. I hope to do something on 2018 early next year. We will see how it goes.

          • John 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

            Acts 10:42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God [to be] the Judge of quick and dead.

          • John 7:24, great verse thanks Alleged.

  7. So, it’s just another private school for profit. Sad.

  8. The Catholic Church abandoned Christianity during the time of Constantine. They merged Roman paganism with Christianity. That’s how they went from Roman gods for everything to patron saints for everything. Eventually they put Mary above Christ and that’s who they love and worship.

    • It was not only the Catholic Church. Ever played Easter bunny on Sunday?

      Is the Easter Holiday Biblical, How Does God Feel About It?

      I think many are missing the point in the notes today.

      • They show their weakness in not trusting God, you’d think the Romans were going to rob the place, so they need to hide their valuables, rather than trusting God. there is no one or thing that can stand between me and my Heavenly Father, no Church no man, statue and no traditions!!
        Mar_15:38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.
        This has a great deal of meaning as Ginger stated so well, we have access to our Father any time any where
        Every Christian know this and should be taught this from day one in there walk with Christ.

        • Hi brother Richard, I know Brandon will say I read too much, but I read an interesting book “The Jesuits the Society of Jesus and the Betrayal of Roman Catholic Church” by Malachi Martin formerly a Jesuit priest. Who is now pope? A Jesuit the first one ever in Catholic history. A very political one at that.

          • I’m cracking up Ginger. ?

          • WELL ! Sister you just keep on readin !! You always put a smile on my Face and you make Brandon laugh, that’s a good thing, Any way i read some of Martins biography, but i am not familiar with his writings, so he was Priest who became disenchanted with the Church and left went to New York died in 1999, i claim ignorance about Jesuit priest what does this mean concerning the pope, give me a history lesson, if Brandon doesn’t mind.

          • Reading, smiles and laughs are always good Richard! History lessons are a good thing too, let’s just ensure we have some legitimate sources is all I ask.

  9. The Deplorable Sickofobola

    August 26, 2017 at 7:07 AM

    Take your children out and do not give to the Catholic Church period!! Money talks!!! It is time to bring it down to their knees. WE ARE THE CHURCH NOT THE BUREAUCRATS WHO RUN IT!!!

  10. Catholicism in general is a synagogue of satan used to bring down our spiritual belief to a lower denomination that can be ruled and controlled. If you are a Catholic who truly loves Yahweh and Yeshua and you are offended by this, then it is time you denounce your allegiance to the Black Pope and give all your undivided attention to Our Creator once and for all. You have been warned.

    • Thank you for the comment someguy, but this is not about denouncing a single faith. This is about looking at the times and seeing them for what they are. Anything attached to Christ is being broken down. We need to help educate one another about our Father’s Word and stand as close as we can together. This will never apply to the majority, it will be a very small minority, but those who hear will hear and those who can see will see.

      The catholic faith has many problems, but it is not the synagogue of Satan. You can read who is here. Our Father’s name is Jehovah in english and YeHôVâH (YHVH) in the Hebrew.

      • The Catholic Church IS a synagogue of Satan. There’s nothing Christian about it. The RCC is wrong about everything. Like the idea that the communion wafer becomes the literal body of Christ.

      • I appreciate your reply. This is a topic about catholicism as stated in the title in the article. There is plenty of history that people can research to confirm my statement about catholicism. A synagogue of satan is a false church used to deceive and lead people towards the darkness; atheism, satanism, those who identify themselves as Jews for political and economic advantage over others, catholicism, and various other denominations can all be considered as such.

        Although what you are referring to as the synagogue in your link is directly related to the description in Revelations, just breakdown the word “synagogue” to find it’s meaning as “congregation of men”. Therefore, any congregation of men who lie and deceive others into following false teachings are not of God.

        As you stated, in old Hebrew texts, God’s name is written as YHVH so that we may not say his name is vain. Whether you choose to use Yehovah, Jehovah, or Yahweh is your prerogative. In the end, GOD EXISTS, HE WAS, HE IS, HE WILL BE FOREVER AND EVER. May God Bless those who fight for Him. While Jesus walked among us, He was not politically correct, therefore He does not expect us to be as well.

        • You got a little close there, read the study it may hit home more than you think. Enjoy the day.

          • I do think Rev 2:9 and 3:9 narrow the synagogue of Satan more to the root. There are many “instead of” Jesus groups, however. The group mentioned ( and many not mentioned) worship traditions of man that make void the “Word of God” (that would be Christ) and are manmade religions that do not bare our Lord’s mark (in the mind-sealed). Most all “isms’ are not Christ’s. And now Catholicism show its true colors loud and clear for those that know.

  11. I would expect nothing less from Progressive jackwads from Marin.
