Frequent visitors to this site know that I have often written about the false doctrine of the Manchild, and suggested that an attempt may soon be made to materialise this heretical concept as a living reality.

Many in revival circles have adopted Manifested Sons of God teachings about the Church (or, a small prepared body within the Church) developing spiritually into perfected overcomers, worthy to receive the ultimate anointing, the presence of the Christ Spirit. They believe they this will glorify them to such a degree that they become "The Christ" on earth. Thus, they are the earthly embodiment of Christ, a corporate Christ. THIS CHRIST CHILD IS SUPPOSEDLY DESTINED TO BE RULER OVER THE CHURCH AND THE NATIONS!

According to this teaching, the Bride of Christ prepares herself and becomes intimate with God (the passion anointing) so that a "child" is birthed of their union. This is taken from the book of Revelation where the Woman is seen giving birth to a "manchild". The manchild is the glorified Corporate Christ on earth, the rulers of the new age.

Now the "manchild" has been seen in vision according to a report on the Internet. (The vision is strikingly similar to some Marian visitations where Mary hands her baby 'Jesus' to the onlookers. Are these in fact attempts to birth the antichrist, the leader of the Apostate Church?).

Vision given to Apostle Paul Cunningham
at the 2nd Apostles Gathering
Report Dated 27 Jun 2000

Dear Brethren, There were two visions given at the 2nd Gathering about the child that was birthed. One was given to Apostle Paul Cunningham, one of the elders. I asked him to write it out as a witness to us all. Here is the Vision:

At the Apostles Gathering, in Atlanta, as we worshipped the Lord and gave ourselves to the Spirit, A Vision appeared. I saw the Heavens open, and a great white light appeared, radiating out from the One in the center, as the light from the sun does. As I looked, I saw it was Jesus, and He held in His Hands a Child, who had just been recently born. He extended the Child and asked, "Who will be responsible for this Child?, Who will care for it, nurture it, and see that is is kept safe from those who would harm or destroy it?" (in the background, I could sense some who drew back , and had an attitude "we sure don't want the responsibility,... there could be reproach....people wouldn't understand...etc.") The Lord reached down into our midst, and said 'will you (Apostles Gathering) be responsible for this Child?" We who were gathered, and even others who are "with us" reached up IN ONE ACCORD, and our voices rang out, "we will accept this Child as our own, we will bear the full responsibility for it, we will nurture and cherish it, and bring it to full maturity...we will see that no harm comes to it." Jesus then, handed the Child into our collective hands, and said, "I will be with you, I will provide ALL THINGS NEEDED to bring this Child to maturity and for it to accomplish the Divine Purpose I have Ordained for it in the earth...My Glory will be seen, and the Harvest will be reaped." God has "birthed a child" A MAN CHILD, who is to bring about a dramatic change in the entire structure of the CHURCH....The Man Child will bring full Apostolic Order to the Ministry and in turn, to the Church.

THE CALL DC- All the Streams Converging!

Following "Stand In The Gap" comes "The Call DC", a youth gathering designed to ignite passion for world evangelisation and revival.

  • Tom Pelton President, March For Jesus - Youth Mobilization
  • Larry Tomczak President, Christ the King of Greater Atlanta - Youth Mobilization
  • Bob Weiner Weiner Ministries International - Youth Mobilization

While perhaps we are familiar with events of this kind being planned, the important fact to note is that this draws together in one joint venture, with the same aim, all the streams of the poisoned river of globalism and the false revival.

We see here working closely together representatives from Word of Faith movements (Richard Roberts, Marylin Hickey); from the conservative right-wing (Pat Robertson) from the Sonship/Apostolic camps (Tommy Tenny, Bill Hamon) from the Charismatic revival churches (John Kilpatrick, Todd Hunter) from global evangelism (Ed Silvoso) and apostleship organisations (Tom Haggard, Peter Wagner) from spiritual warfare/prophetic movements (Cindy Jacobs, Chuck Pierce) and from Restoration groups (Tom Pelton, March for Jesus).

All these and more have found common cause - to "bring in the kingdom", to change the world, to cause every person on earth to bow the knee (whether to God or to his church - there doesn't seem to be much difference in their literature). The Call DC is just one more example of the "unity" being preached and forced upon the churches. And it's a unity with teeth - just try dissenting from this and see what happens!

An article on The CallDC site spells out the thinking behind the scheme:

The youth of America are facing their darkest hour. A whole generation is under unprecedented assault. Surveys show that 90 percent of people who give their lives to Christ, do so before the age of 30 -- yet 88 percent of America's teenagers are unchurched today. Of those who now belong to a church, four out of five will leave before they graduate from high school. This spiritual crisis, if not reversed, will leave us with only a shadow of the church within two decades. Yet the rumbles of revival can be heard, the distant sounds of a spiritual downpour that will bring a massive harvest. .... And now The Call has gone out - a summons to those who are desperate for revival and are willing to fast and pray to see God touch our nation. The Call DC is a response to the summons in Joel 2:15-18, "Declare a holy fast… Call a sacred assembly . . . bring together the elders, gather the children." A historic gathering of children, youth and their parents will occur at the Washington, DC Capitol Mall, September 2, 2000. Here, in the same place, a million men gathered three years ago to renew covenant - with their families and with God. But every generation must renew the covenant for themselves and now is the time for the next generation to do so. Just as the godly fathers of America gathered, so too must their children. The nation that has broken families and fatherless children is under a curse (Malachi 4:6). For revival to come, we need to see a profound reconciliation between parents and their children. One of The Call's main purposes is to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers. ... Nothing less than God's intervention can alter the course our nation is on. At every critical turning point in biblical history, the people gathered for a national, bi-generational fast. According to Joel 2, the call to fasting and prayer takes the highest priority... Then Heaven responds with an all-inclusive outpouring of the Holy Spirit and salvation. [my emphasis] "And I will pour out my Spirit on all people.. and everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." ... As America rests on the brink of revival, let us not miss our opportunity to impact a nation. History can be changed again, the only way it has always been changed: through united fasting and prayer.


Mick Bickle was once better known for his involvement with the Latter-Rain Kansas City Prophets in the late 80's and early 90's. Since then he's been pastoring his church in Kansas City, Metro Christian Fellowship, but has now decided to devote his time to a strange mix of revival fervour and sonship doctrines called Harp and Bowl, based on Revelation 5:8 which speaks of the harps (of praise) and the bowls (of intercession) held by the 24 elders around the throne of God.

The initiative is centred around the "International House if Prayer (IHOP):

"What is an International House Of Prayer Missions Base? An IHOP missions base includes three distinct ministries coming together that are deeply engaged in the Great Commission worldwide. First, a 24-hour, citywide prayer ministry in the spirit of the Tabernacle of David. Second, a full-time School of Prayer that incorporates a complete curriculum and faculty. Third, an intentional “intercessory missionary” sending strategy which includes recruiting, training and forming missions teams to be sent out."

The model on which the concept is based is the Tabernacle of David which Bickle believes to be the best model for the heavenly order. This so-called Davidic order involves 24-hour prayer and worship, but is a mix of revival worship led by musicians, antiphonal chanting of psalms, and the "prophetic" singing of passages of scripture.

This continuous prayer and chanting is designed to bring down the presence of God in a new way, and create an atmosphere for revival and world evangelisation. The Tabernacle is seen in revival circles as a model of the Church, and this leads to the assumption that the "shekinah glory" can return to the Holy of Holies if sufficient and acceptable praise and worship goes up to God.

There are copies of the prayers used and a "Tabernacle of David" fact sheet available on the IHOP website (see below.) One quote from this document:

"Each time one of the kings of Israel re-instituted the Davidic Order of worship in the Temple then spiritual breakthrough and military victory came soon afterwards."

A conference taking place in October promoting this new initiative for spiritual warfare and revival brings together Mick Bickle, Paul Cain, John Kilpatrick (of Brownsville), Jack Deere and Frank Damazio. (It is interesting to see here more confirmation of the news that John Kilpatrick has bought into the sonship doctrines now, having imported the son of Bill Hamon into his Florida church.)

The website blurb reads as follows:

"The International House of Prayer is a 24-hour, citywide, inter-denominational prayer ministry serving the body of Christ in the Kansas City area. This ministry is modeled after the tabernacle of David with singers and musicians being released to lead corporate intercession and worship 24-hours a day.

"We feel this is the most effective context to train and send forth others who will 'plant' a House of Prayer in other cities. Our prayer goal is to see a 24 hour a day, citywide, House of Prayer (in the spirit of the Tabernacle of David) established in every major city of the earth before the Lord's return....We are calling for participation from any church in the area that worships Jesus according to the scripture regardless of denomination or affiliation..."

City Reach International, Transformations Video and George Otis, Jr

I am going to keep this article for another month as people are beginning to question whether the Transformations Video is being entirely truthful or not. Read Tom Smith's revealing report on this video entitled "Transformation or Deception!"

Recently, my local Baptist church announced that they they were going to be joining other local churches in the area to "win Arlington, VA for Christ". All this was being done under the auspices of a group headquartered in Houston, Texas called City Reach International. A video entitled "Transformations" was shown several weeks later, produced by George Otis, Jr. Four communities that had already been "transformed" were being presented as examples of what God could do for your community also if you so desired this. After the showing of the video, everyone who saw it was very excited and anxious to get involved in City Reach.

But have these communities really been transformed? One of the communities in the video was Cali, Colombia, home of some major drug cartels. Upon returning to work I spoke to a co-worker of mine also from Cali and she told me she hadn't heard of any such revival going on back home. She had just returned from there and said the situation was worse if anything and certainly not better.

An article from Tom Smith's Homepage called Transformations or Deception confirms what I had been told and gives further research as to what the reality is. Also provided in this fine article are background material for George Otis, Jr. who is a promoter of Moral Government Theology. This is well worth studying. Read and see for yourself.

The Third Secret of Fatima has been one of the most sought-after pieces of information in some religious circles. Ever since 1917 when the three prophecies were given by an apparition of "Mary" to three young children, there has been speculation about the third secret which was never released to the general public. Only the Pope and one or two selected aides knew the contents of this vision, although it was supposed to hint at some kind of apocalypse.

Shortly after the beginning of the year 2000, the Pope decided to inform the public of this mysterious Third Secret of Fatima, saying that it had been fulfilled. He considered that his preservation from an assassination attempt in 1981 was due to the Virgin Mary in fulfillment of this prophecy.

However, many questions remain. The full script (according to the Vatican, at least!) has now been released, and it does not appear to relate to saving the Pope from death. Quite the reverse. It speaks of the end of the world and the end of Roman Catholicism. Myself, I consider it all to be a lying sign and a demonic prophecy, so we should not pay too much attention to these things. However, you may be interested to read the contents of the vision:

Sister Lucia, the only one living of the three children who saw the apparition writes:

"I write in obedience to you, my God, who command me to do so through his Excellency the Bishop of Leiria and through your Most Holy Mother and mine. After the two parts which I have already explained, at the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand. Pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: 'Penance, Penance, Penance!'

"And we saw in an immense light that is God: 'something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it' a Bishop dressed in White 'we had the impression that it was the Holy Father.' Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there, the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and, half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions.

"Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God.

(A footnote says that in the translation "the original text has been respected, even as regards the imprecise punctuation, which nevertheless does not impede an understanding of what the visionary wished to say".)

TONY BLAIR A ROMAN CATHOLIC - Hans Kung his New Mentor!

Many of us in the UK have concluded that Tony Blair's religion is Catholic, despite his attempts to appear Protestant - the reason for his reluctance is the law preventing any Roman Catholic from holding the office of Prime Minister. (England's history bears the scars of Rome's repeated attempts to overthrow or infiltrate her leadership, so such a law is understandable).

The official line from Downing Street is that Tony is an Anglican. However, Cherie and the children attend a Roman Catholic church and Tony Blair goes with them! A while ago, Cardinal Hume had to have a word in his ear about taking Mass - as he's not officially a Catholic! (Non-catholics are forbidden to take the "consecrated host" at Mass.)

Now it is reported that Tony Blair has befriended a liberal Catholic theologian, Hans Kung, whose ecumenical globalism is well known amongst those who study such things. Kung is too liberal even for the Roman community and has been deprived of his licence to teach theology as a result of his questioning official Roman policy. However, he remains a devout Catholic and a priest.

Hans Kung is founder and president of the Global Ethic Foundation in Tubingen, where Tony Blair met Kung in early July. He is a Globalist par excellence. In 1992 he drafted a "Declaration of the Religions for a Global Ethic" for the "Council for a Parliament of the World Religions". This synthesised all the major religions of the world to create a concensus of their moral teachings. It is reproduced on numerous websites throughout the internet, with ecumenical and interfaith bodies giving it prominence.

Combine the spin on "values" that Blair's government presents as its cuddly social image, with the Hans Kung's globalist agenda for a new social order, and we come up with a disturbing scenario. Most people would be alarmed by an openly aggressive socialist or fascist police state, but when the same agenda is wrapped up inside "family values" and "national/cultural reconciliation" and so forth, few are alarmed. Many will oppose evil, but who has the courage to oppose "love, peace and unity"?


Well, whaddya know? Even sleepy old Belper has something to offer the religious world and it's come up with the very latest fad - a picture in the shape of the face of Christ. People all around the world have been seeing such faces, in glass windows, fruit and vegetables, rocks and even in a pie dish in a school canteen.

In February 2000, a Belper man spotted what he believes is the face of Christ complete with crown of thorns, in a most unlikely place, an aromatherapy burner. (See the image opposite.) I am intrigued because I know of an image that matches this image much more closely that of Christ (who of course was not clean shaven) - it's a third-century AD mural depicting the sun-god Helios with rays of light streaming from his head. I think that is much more appropriate!


A Christian sending out three articles by e-mail relating to the homosexual agenda in schools in Boston, Mass, found that one person did not receive the article. The reason? It was censored by their server. The message he received was as follows:

" Your message was not delivered to [name omitted] @andover.co.uk. This mail message contains banned or potentially offensive text."

This follows media reports that e-mail reading and interception is being stepped up in the UK, supposedly to counter terrorist threats. ISP's will be required to read and disclose to the police certain e-mails and comply with police surveillance requirements. This includes demanding the encryption keys for encrypted mail. ISP's will be made to record, intercept and/or log mails that pose a threat. What is considered a threat is not made clear, but judging by this server's actions, anything counter to the politically correct New World Order is unwelcome and suspect.
