A TALE OF TWO KINGDOMS
Kingdom Now or Kingdom Come?
by Sandy Simpson
This DVD is a message based on this article.
There are two kingdoms being taught in many churches today. Teaching about one of the kingdoms is on the decline while the other is being promoted all over the place. I am warning Christians that they need to check out who is using the word "kingdom", the books they have been reading and recommend on building "the kingdom", the people they have been hanging out with at conferences, and what they mean by "the kingdom".

We have taken the initiative to do something about this in these Islands, that has not been done before. We have three main objectives. First - is to educate the community through the TV and the Internet. We have found cults very much dislike publicity. By making the public aware of what these groups really believe it prevents them from joining. In this way communities are made aware of the counterfeit groups evangelizing their neighborhoods. By sending out written information or making it available on the net we are able to give people an intelligent choice made on the facts from two sides instead of only one.
Second- to awaken the church to the activities of these groups and the mainstreaming of the New Age movement that has solidified itself in the schools, workplaces, the media and even the church. By equipping believers with the tools and effective ways to witness we can successfully see those involved in false spirituality abandon their practices and receive Christ.
Third- to Equip the church to be able to communicate better to those in the cult groups where they differ from historic Christianity and to have them understand we are being friends to them by telling the truth, not their enemy. With a heart of compassion and patience we want to labor to convey the message of grace in Christ and his saving work.

America is not Israel. The reason that blessings came to our nation was because of the Gentile Christian Church being faithful to the Lord within it. Now that the churches are falling into apostasy God's judgment is looming both for the apostate churches and America. For decades we have already been seeing the judgment of God revealed in the US and other countries. But it is primarily because the churches no longer have a Godly influence on society. The Gospel has been replaced by entertainment and mysticism.

|How The Church Becomes Pagan|
|by Orrel Steinkamp |
Volume 7, No. 4, July/August 2012
For Me this is an absolutely watershed article by Rev. Bob DeWaay, my personal friend and ministry colleague. He has given me permission to reformat and present the material for the Plumbline. This article establishes the seriousness sin of seeking and imagining things that do not have their source in God's unique revelation which God choose to reveal to his biblical apostles and prophets and which He preserved for His church in the biblical record. To propose new revelations beyond what God has chosen to reveal becomes a form of deceptive Christian divination. These mystical, fleshly false revelations (Check out "The Elijah List" ) become a delusional trap that will at some point become the basis for God's judgment. For the church to resort to pagan and false revelation has apparently never been that difficult and elements within the church have been tempted since Paul's day to "go beyond what is written" (1 Cor. 4:6). The bible is the inspired, infallible, iner rant and SUFFICIENT word of God whereby God reveals himself, unfolds the drama of redemption through Jesus Christ, draws man to Himself and teaches him the truth necessary for godly living now and eternal life to come. 2 Timothy 3:16, 17 affirms that scripture alone is "profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may he adequate, equipped for every good word."

Recently some of our readers have contacted us to ask why we have not posted a review on Jonathan Cahn's The Harbinger, a New York Times best-selling book written in a narrative fictional format presenting a dire warning for America's future. A companion documentary DVD titled The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment is also available wherein Cahn describes the happenings of 9/11 and subsequent events and unveils what he believes to be the prophetic significance of these events. The book was brought to our attention a couple months ago when two of our authors each wrote about it, but with opposing views. One was defending The Harbinger and its message of judgment and repentance, while the other was pointing out some deep concerns regarding The Harbinger. Later, we read other critiques by other writers we knew-all of those also with concerns about Cahn's book and DVD. In all these critiques, some very legitimate issues have been shared by ministries whom we have respected and often looked to for insights (i.e., Kjos Ministries, Herescope, and The Berean Call).

It is evident that leading neo-evangelicals believe that our main goal is to eliminate doctrinal distinctives and to emphasize unity among those claiming to be believers.
