SIGNS OF THE TIMES – Take Heed That No Man Deceive You – 8

John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Below are more excerpts from a powerful testimony of conversion, … “From Rome to Christ by Alberto Rivera”. It is a powerful antidote to the dangerous apostasy of our day. I myself was a Roman Catholic for almost 40 years. By God’s grace I came out, my husband came out, and many years later so did my mother. We all prayed to Mary. Mary is the one we prayed to. Imagine? Be blessed as you continue to read …

“No Catholic can even believe this promise (John 3:16) while they keep practicing Roman Catholicism.

It’s impossible. Listen to this. No Mary. Here (in John 3:16) there is no Mary. He gave his only begotten Son, but Catholic teaching says Mary also partakes of the sacrifice of Christ. This is why she become a co-redeemer.

I was looking myself for that identity as a priest. I was so infuriated, I was so full of demons and evil spirits that try to destroy my very soul as a Catholic, that many times when the conviction of the Holy Spirit would come upon me with such a, with such a power, I would take the Bible and I would throw the Bible under my feet, and I would destroy with my foot the pages of the Scripture. I hate to know the truth. The devils in me hate it.

Immediately, when I stop here … (John 3:16) … and it says … he gave his only begotten Son, … only his Son, … only his Son, … only his Son, … and the Holy Spirit cry aloud, … only his begotten Son, … only his begotten Son, … only his begotten Son, … no Mary, … no Mary, … no Mary, … no Mary, … only his begotten Son, … then I take the bible to the floor and I destroy it. 

That happens to that beloved person in your family, that you love so much. It could be your father, your mother, your grandfather, your grandmother. That beloved person is in this dangerous path right now.” Alberto Rivera

Matthew 24:3-4 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

SIGNS OF THE TIMES – Take Heed That No Man Deceive You – Part 7

Undiluted truth, clearly and lovingly proclaimed.  As a former Roman Catholic it pains my heart, it deeply pains my heart, that this type of preaching is sadly missing from today’s pulpits …

“… Catholic teaching states clearly that baptism is one of the seven sacraments, being so the first sacrament. They are defined as the only seven channels of grace. What that means is by every sacrament a part of the grace of Jesus Christ comes for your salvation. Not all what you need but just a little part here, a little part there, a little part further through other sacraments, through the sacrament of the penance, and through the sacrament of marriage, and through the sacrament of the Holy Orders, and through every other sacrament, of the sacrifice of the mass, a little part of the grace of Christ for your salvation is coming to you.  Little by little. 

What that means is you don’t know when you are going to be saved. As a matter of fact you are dying and the priest cannot even tell you if you are saved or not, and you can be the most faithful Catholic, the most renewed charismatic. You may even cry aloud that you already believe in Christ, that you are saved, and you are not while you keep practicing these lies of the devil. You see the paradox here? By the same token, millions of Catholics, like puppets, parakeets, are repeating they are saved without knowing the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.”  Alberto Rivera

Matthew 24:3-4 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

SIGNS OF THE TIMES – A Vision

In my 27 year walk with the Lord He has given me what I call “mini-visions” from time to time.  They have been biblically sound and relevant.  Recently, this month, I had another one.  It was sudden and the meaning was clear.  A famine is coming.  I felt to write about this because if this vision was from the Lord others may be hearing the same thing.  The Lord does warn his people of things to come. Would the Lord have us prepare in some way?  Something to pray about.

SIGNS OF THE TIMES – Take Heed That No Man Deceive You – Part 6

This type of teaching/preaching amazes me because it is a rarity in today’s pulpit.  It makes me realize more than ever before that we are in the midst of  a  great “falling away”.   The following is a continuation of  yesterday’s … Part 5

“If you happen to be a Catholic this morning here, listen to this. this is for you, if you happen to be Catholic you are contaminated by Catholic teaching, some way, some how.

Listen to this, this is how without you even thinking you think about the promises of God.

You don’t think by virtue of the Holy Spirit, you think by the spirit of satan every time. 

Satan has no problem you reading the bible and you memorizing. 

Satan has no problem with you having as many bibles as you can have. 

Where satan has a problem is when you believe the bible as it is written. 

There he has a problem, because there is no room for him, Praise God. 

No room for him. No room between syllable and syllable. No room between word and word. No room between sentence and sentence. No room between verse and verse. No room between chapter and chapter. No room between book and book.

And even going as far as putting more books in the bible. That is what the Catholic bible is all about, more books. 

Now you understand the strategy of the spirit of the antichrist. You see, you got just between one syllable room for satan, and you are in trouble. 

I was in trouble, because every time I read this very verse (John 3:16) right there, I gotta stop, … my subconscious will immediately interfere … and I have to say she (Mary) is a co-redeemer with him. He (Jesus) is a redeemer but she is a co-redeemer.” Alberto Rivera

Matthew 24:3-4 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

SIGNS OF THE TIMES – Take Heed That No Man Deceive You – Part 5

These words were spoken some 20 or more years ago …  

“Well … They are saying right now to the Charismatic Renewal and Ecumenical movements, especially through these big powerful two movements of apostasy, they are saying that the Catholics have the same Gospel that we have.  But the Spirit of the Lord says No.

There is another gospel beside this gospel, …. The gospel that I read within the Catholic institution, the gospel that I ministered and I teach and I preach. Listen to this, I preach, I teach, I minister, … that gospel was this gospel. But how was it another gospel?  How?

Because when I preach, I teach as a priest the gospel, the very gospel, I pervert it. I commit perversion against the very things that I preach and teach.

By the time that I went to the gospel and I said here is what the gospel says …

John chapter 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son …  AND HIS MOTHER MARY …

Are you reading with me?  What bible are you reading?  It’s not in your bible?

It is not.

It was not even in my Catholic bible either, but that is the way that I have to read it.

You do not understand what was happening. In my consciousness I was reading this part of the verse as it was written. In my subconscious Mary would jump and interfere right there, because as a Catholic you cannot, and if you happen to be a Catholic this morning here, listen to this. this is for you, if you happen to be Catholic you are contaminated by Catholic teaching, some way, some how.” Alberto Rivera

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 1Now 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.
