The Gathering of Satan’s Church Exposed (Video)

The One World Religion for the 
New World Order is here folks - satan’s church is now gathering under one roof to “unite.” 

Whereas Jesus Christ stated:
Luk 12:51  Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: 
Add this to the list of end time signs. Here is the complete video breakdown – you are going to want to share this:

Mat 25:31  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 
Mat 25:32  And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 
Mat 25:33  And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 


Be of Good Cheer - The Lord Comforts Paul

The Lord comforts Paul and says be of good cheer. The Lord tells Paul that he must bear witness of Him in Rome.

Acts 23:11

And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said, Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so must thou bear witness also at Rome.

Acts 23

V 1–5: STRUCK As Paul tells the council that he has lived in good conscience before God, he is struck by Ananias, the high priest. Paul calls him a ‘whitewashed wall’. He is corrected by those around, and admits that he did not know that this man is God’s high priest. Is this because of Paul’s absence from Jerusalem, or because of his failing eyesight, or for some other reason? V 6–9: SADDUCEES Unlike the Pharisees, the Sadducees do not believe in the resurrection of the dead, angels or spirits. Paul sees that Sadducees are present in the council with Pharisees, and divides the council by proclaiming that this whole issue is a question of believing in the resurrection of the dead. V 10: SOLDIERS The dissension is so great that the commander feels that Paul will be physically harmed, and orders the soldiers to take him to safe custody in the barracks. V 11: SUSTAINED God personally sustains Paul, confirming to him that he will testify both at Jerusalem and at Rome. V 12–22: SHAMEFUL Over forty shamefully zealous Jews bind themselves to an oath to fast until they kill Paul. They collude with the chief priest and elders who are to ask for Paul to come back to them so they can make further enquiries, when their real intent is to ambush and kill him en route. However, Paul’s nephew, on hearing of the plot, tells the commander, who instructs him to say nothing to anyone else. V 23–30: SAFEGUARDS The commander sends for two centurions to take soldiers, horsemen and spearmen to ensure that Paul gets safely to Felix, the governor. He also relays the situation to Felix in a letter, which they take. V 31–35: SECURE The military party, Paul, and the letter arrive safely at Caesarea and Felix determines to hear the case later when Paul’s accusers arrive.

Chapter 23

The close of the foregoing chapter left Paul in the high priest’s court, into which the chief captain (whether to his advantage or no I know not) had removed his cause from the mob; and, if his enemies act there against him with less noise, yet it is with more subtlety. Now here we have, I. Paul’s protestation of his own integrity, and of a civil respect to the high priest, however he had upon a sudden spoken warmly to him, and justly, Acts 23:1-5. II. Paul’s prudent contrivance to get himself clear of them, by setting the Pharisees and Sadducees at variance one with another, Acts 23:6-9. III. The governor’s seasonable interposal to rescue him out of their hands likewise, Acts 23:10. IV. Christ’s more comfortable appearing to him, to animate him against those difficulties that lay before him, and to tell him what he must expect, Acts 23:11. V. A bloody conspiracy of some desperate Jews to kill Paul, and their drawing in the chief priests and the elders to be aiders and abettors with them in it, Acts 23:12-15. VI. The discovery of this conspiracy to Paul, and by him to the chief captain, who perceived so much of their inveterate malice against Paul that he had reason enough to believe the truth of it, Acts 23:16-22. VII. The chief captain’s care of Paul’s safety, by which he prevented the execution of the design; he sent him away immediately under a strong guard from Jerusalem to Caesarea, which was now the residence of Felix, the Roman governor, and there he safely arrived, Acts 23:23-35.

Acts 1:8 "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."
The apostles’ mission of spreading the gospel was the major reason the Holy Spirit empowered them. This event dramatically altered world history, and the gospel message eventually reached all parts of the earth (Matt. 28:19-20).
“Receive power”: The apostles had already experienced the Holy Spirit’s saving, guiding, teaching and miracle-working power. Soon they would receive His indwelling presence and a new dimension of power for witness (see notes on 2:4; 1 Cor. 6:19-20; Eph. 3:16, 20).
“Witnesses”: People who tell the truth about Jesus Christ (John 14:26; 1 Pet. 3:15). 

The Greek word means “one who dies for his faith” because that was commonly the price of witnessing.

“Judea”: The region in which Jerusalem was located.
“Samaria”: The region immediately to the north of Judea (see note on 8:5).
The first part of this verse is better translated, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you.” The disciples were to be concerned with world evangelism and discipleship.
This Great Commission still applies today since the promise underlying it, the Holy Spirit, the Book of Acts: witness in “Jerusalem” (chapters 1-7), witness throughout “Judea” and “Samaria” (chapters 8-12), and witness to the distant parts of “the Earth) (chapters 13-28)
We see, in verse 8 above, why we need to receive power from God. It is not for our own use so that we can brag to someone else; it is to make our witness of Jesus more powerful. We can see here, that the message of the gospel is not just for Israel, but to all nations. We read in Revelation how people of every nationality will be represented in heaven.
Verses 9-11: “While they beheld” suggests several things that are not apparent. Unlike the appearances and disappearances of the former 40 days in which Jesus instantly appeared and vanished, this was a gradual and visible departure.

This was different and final. He would no longer appear to them. His next appearance on earth will be at the Second Coming when He visibly (Rev. 1:7) and bodily sets His feet on Mount Olives (Zech. 14:4).

Effects of being encouraged

Prayers for encouragement

Holy Spirit, work in the world
The Holy Spirit, active in the created world, works to show the futility and sinfulness of life without God, and brings a conviction of the presence of God, his righteousness and coming judgment.

The Holy Spirit is active in the created world
In creation itself

In ordering the natural world

The Holy Spirit is present everywhere in the world

The unbelieving world will not recognise the Holy Spirit
John 14:17 John uses “the world” to describe those who live apart from God.See also 1 Corinthians 2:14

The Holy Spirit testifies to the truth

The Holy Spirit convicts the world

The Holy Spirit empowers the church to serve the world in mission

Revelation. The greeting in the book invokes grace from God “and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness” (Rev 1:4f.). He is described in a similar way again as “the Amen, the faithful and true witness” (3:14) and later the man on the white horse “is called Faithful and True” (19:11). His words therefore are trustworthy and true (21:5;22:6). His witnesses are likewise to be faithful to death, as Antipas was (2:1013). Those who are in the army of the Lamb are “called and chosen and faithful” (17:14). This faithfulness means not denying the faith of Christ (2:13) and keeping “the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus” (14:12). Faith therefore is very much linked with endurance (2:1913:10). This is what would be expected in a writing to churches undergoing persecution. Likewise there is the sense of the reliability of God whose victory and vindication of His people is sure.
