Brian is a well known Bible teacher with a particular emphasis on Biblical end time events. Believing that these events are already underway, he believes that the Rapture of the Church to glory is imminent. Brian and Gilly (pic here with Bethan)travel throughout the UK and he also teaches in Europe and the USA. Although they are regularly in fellowships and churches who know them well, they are most happy to visit new venues to bring the message of the Gospel and the nearness of Christs return.
The video in this article shows proof-positive, once and for all, that Pope Francis and the Vatican Whore are the absolute, sworn enemies of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Make this video go viral and expose for all time the Vatican agenda to send your soul to Hell.
"Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time."1 John 2:18 (KJV)
Dropping all pretense of being the "vicar of Christ", Pope Francis told a fawning crowd of 33,000 Catholics in Rome that “a personal, direct, immediate relationship with Jesus Christ” must be avoided at all costs. He stated repeatedly that the only relationship you can have with Jesus must be from within the confines of the Roman Catholic Vatican system. These are the words of Antichrist, see for yourself:
"There are those of you who believe that you can have a personal, direct and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ outside of the communion and mediation of the Catholic Church. These temptations are dangerous and harmful. They are, in the words of the great Pope Paul VI, 'absurd dichotomies'.Pope Francis, June 25, 2017 Rome
Pope Francis Says 'Personal Relationship With Jesus' Is 'Harmful And Dangerous'
The week before he also called for “a one world government” and “political authority”, arguing that the creation of the one world government is needed to combat major issues such as “climate change.”
"And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."Revelation 17:5 (KJV)
Sorry, Frankie, but the only relationship with Jesus that can save your soul is an intimate, personal and direct relationship with The One who bore your sins on the cross at Calvary. And you do not need the Roman Whore to do that. In fact, it is the Catholic Church that keeps people from becoming saved.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: ot of works, lest any man should boast."Ephesians 2:8,9 (KJV)
Revelation 17 and 18 shows us clearly how God views the Roman Catholic Vatican system, what their true agenda is, and what there soon coming end will be. The video in this article shows proof-positive, once and for all, that Pope Francis and the Vatican Whore are the absolute, sworn enemies of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves."Matthew 23:15 (KJV)

I have watched as fellow Christians have torn into one another, slandered Christian brothers and sisters, tried to harm successful ministries, and behaved in such a manner that would result in the unbelieving world fleeing from them.
Added to this is a new contention online, particularly on social media. Disagreements over even minor issues often result in name-calling and denigrating one another. Whether the venue is YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter, the contentiousness is out of control.
I have watched mean-spiritedness coming from Christian "leaders" that might make the secular world blush. It is "friendly fire" that isn't so friendly. And if I publicly chastised them and named their names, they would reply with even more vindictive blogs, radio programs, articles, commentaries, and YouTubes. They can dish out the chastisements but they cannot take an ounce of correction.
Yes, there is raging apostasy. The most frequent email to me is, "Can you recommend a church in you-fill-in-the-blank city?" Many churches have caved to the most unsound doctrine. True heresy needs to be called out with the naming names and citing the aberrant theology.
But some in today's discernment crowd hide in the bushes, waiting for a Christian leader to make a single misstep. They are then pounced on, labelled a hopeless heretic, and marginalised by others in that community. And if you associate with people they disagree with, feature them, quote them, or publicly show approval of them, you have lost all common sense, discernment, judgement, and more. You are an equal heretic in the guilt by association game.
My radio co-host, Eric Barger, wrote an excellent article titled "When Discernment Turns Ugly." I'd like to quote a few lines.
Eric writes, "Both Jan and I have become increasingly uncomfortable, even disturbed, with the tone and lack of civility being portrayed by some within the apologetics and discernment community of speakers, writers, and commentators. We've watched, listened, and have tried to intervene as assorted discernment ministries have fired shots at othersinside Christianity over issues that fall miserably short of what has always been considered heresy.
"A troubling precedent has been spawned by some, lending validation to the idea that it's perfectly acceptable to publicly rakeanyoneover the coals for nearlyany theological reason."
Eric continues, "Jan and I are not alone in our dismay with what is happening. Other leaders have voiced the same concern to us in recent days and mind you, the issue is not concerning any rejection of the virgin birth or the bodily resurrection of Christ. Nor is it related to the pseudo-Christian yet cultic Emergent heresy or the seducing web with which spiritual liberalism ensnares so many."
Eric writes, "The type of 'discernment' that I'm referring to here doesn't involve someone's denial of the essential doctrines of the faith. Instead, what these squabbles really amount to are nothing more than disagreements on secondary doctrines, styles of worship, and peripheral practices."
I am puzzled as to why this ministry has been the brunt of constant attack for years. I previously reported that Hank Hanegraaff, the Bible Answer Man, called Olive Tree Ministries a "blight on our times" and "reprehensible." This and more was stated on his national radio program. He could have called me and said, "Jan, here's where we disagree. Let's talk about it." Instead Hank spent at least three minutes shredding my theology and character. At the root of the issue is his Preterism cannot tolerate Dispensationalism.
Recently another ministry leader who has spent five years denigrating this ministry wrote and said his attitude had softened. He was glad for the areas where we agree. He acknowledged he had not acted Christ-like. He apologised for the damage done and stated that for the issues upon which we agree such as end-time events, he should not have been an adversary. We are flawed human beings who will never see eye-to-eye on everything. I accepted his apology.
I think Olive Tree Ministries is doctrinally sound. I have sometimes featured guests on air or at conferences with whom I have some minor theological disagreements. I have felt that what they have to say is important enough that I will not let secondary issues stand in the way. I also know that these guests would never push their own agenda.
But I have begun to wonder if the contentious contenders expect a background check of everyone with whom one associates? And if so, has the standard been set so high that no imperfect human being can qualify?
Do these folks think that they have no flaws, no theological weaknesses, and have attained a level of such perfection that they have become, in essence, a sheriff for the church? They must stamp their seal of approval on everyone?
Recently one online ministry attacked another and so denigrated the other with insults that it was embarrassing. The one who was verbally insulting the other via YouTube suggested the other lacked a proper education even though this particular pastor is loved by thousands. He is cutting-edge with an electronic audience consisting of tens of thousands.
He was then insulted as someone who needed more theological education in Greek and Hebrew. After an hour of insults, any sound believer would be heartsick and an unbeliever would flee from our camp observing that his unbelieving friends would be far more gracious to him should he make a mistake or have a disagreement.
Eric writes, "I think it's needful for each Christian to be able to express positions or hold beliefs on the so-called secondary issues,but is biblical apologetics aboutdenigrating others and, in effect, besmirching entire ministries based ondisagreements about side issues?For some, this is what it's become, and worse. The field of discernment has, at least in part, become a hotbed of separatism that seems to far exceed biblical standards."
Eric continues, "From what is sometimes only one pen or keyboard, judgment is meted out against the suspected offender as newsletters are printed, blogs are published, seminars are given, and whole ministries and reputations are possibly done irreversible harm.
"All this takes place no matter how flimsy the evidence presented may be, and often over non-essential theologies!This should disgust the Christian community and I fear for the next generation of apologists (and those they'll likely influence) who are being schooled by this example."
I think that God is saddened that elements in the apologetics' world behave no better than the Pharisees of Jesus day.
As flawed human beings, we make missteps and we certainly make mistakes. As each day dawns, I ask God for sound judgement for the many major decisions I will face that day. I don't want to mislead anyone or introduce them to unsound doctrine. I likely am not batting 1,000. In that teachers and leaders have a higher accountability, I would ask you to pray for all of us.
It's one thing to contend for the faith which we must do (Jude 3). It's another thing to denigrate character, engage in name calling, and make untrue accusations. A false teacher needs to be called out. Wolves are devouring millions of sheep.
It's only the contentious contending we are observing that is troubling.
II Timothy 2:24-25:
And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness.....
By JohnMcTernan The rebirth of the nation of Israel is unique among all the nations in history. Starting in 600 BC, the nation was totally destroyed, not once but twice. Amazingly, after each destruction, it came back into existence. Not only was the nation destroyed twice, but each time nearly all of the people were taken captive into foreign countries. Yet they returned to the land. All this points to the uniqueness of Israel. This nation is not like the others because it is based on an everlasting covenant with God! Read in browser »

Geographically, Israel is just off-centre.
Why then is it treated with such respect, especially by the likes of Russia and
In the new and surprising economic world order, Israel could gain a
degree of wealth not seen since the days of King Solomon.
For the Western world, strong new alliances between certain non-Western
countries constitute something of a mystery. But while the West is distracted
by political uprisings and remains enamored with the idea of its own “manifest
destiny,” a new world order is emerging, dominated by up-and-coming global
superpowers like Russia, China and India.
Over the past eight years, many unexpected diplomatic changes have occurred.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has formed a partnership with the “infidel” nation
of Russia. Less than two years ago, Russia moved into Syria, and shows no signs
of leaving. And Syria, despite its own problem with radical Islam, has
strengthened bonds with Iran’s fundamentalist regime.
Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has taunted Western Europe, preferring
to pander to Moscow and Beijing. And China, though physically distant, has
subtly installed troops in Syria.
fleets are also appearing in joint exercises with Iran in the Persian Gulf and
Russia in the Mediterranean.
As for Israel, how is it that this small country, a mere sliver of land, is
accorded such deference? The world’s only Jewish state is making deals with
Turkey, Russia and China, in spite of their alliances with Iran, which is
dedicated to Israel’s annihilation. Why is Jerusalem pursuing such deals? And,
ambivalent at best about Israel, why are these nations agreeing to them? A new
world order, difficult for the West to recognise, answers many of these
About six months after Barack Obama began his first term as US president, a new
partnership was born in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg.
On June 16, 2009, leaders from Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC) met to
discuss ways to impact the global financial situation “to reflect changes in
the world economy.”
Reuters noted at the time that “BRIC nations account for 15 percent of the
$60.7 trillion global economy, but Goldman Sachs predicts that in 20 years
time, the four countries could together dwarf the G7 and China’s economy will
overtake the United States in total size.”
Indeed, eight years later, those four nations – along with the addition of
South Africa, hence BRICS – are rapidly moving toward a position of global
Economic growth is skyrocketing, especially in China and India. In comparison,
GDP growth in the US and the UK already look like what Reuters predicted.
BRICS has also established its own international bank, called NDB. Under the
auspices of the BRICS member states, its purpose is to finance infrastructure
projects inside those member states.
China has started another initiative that, according to global economist
Jean-Pierre Lehmann, could bring about “the most dramatic transformation of the
world economy since the Industrial Revolution.”
The project is called the Belt and Road Initiative. Unveiled only four years
ago, it will take an estimated $7.5 trillion to develop. But the benefit is
nothing less than an explosion of prosperity, not just for participating
countries but for the whole world. No less than 75 nations have joined the Silk
Road Chamber of International Commerce.
Members include all the Eastern Goliaths: China, Russia and India. For those
keeping an eye on Israel, other notable members along with the Jewish state
include Syria, Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Qatar and the Palestinian
Because China’s most important land “road” runs straight through the countries
in this region. A second major route is noted below.
The land road begins in the Chinese city of Xi’an. Its path runs directly
through Tehran. Moving into Iraq, it then either goes directly into Turkey or
through Syria to both Turkey and the Mediterranean.
If China’s land road goes through Syria, as Tehran hopes it will, it will
connect at the Mediterranean for shipping exports to Europe, Africa, North
America and South America.
Russia is guarding the Mediterranean with a fully developed and growing
seaport. Iran may be connected to the western sea, but Russia is determined to
hold its coastal key.
Israel is only miles south of the China land road, and only miles north of its
proposed sea road.
The latter, sometimes called the Maritime Road, connects China with Southeast
Asia, India, East Africa and, upwards through the Suez Canal, Yemen, Saudi
Arabia and Egypt.
Geographically, Israel is just off-center. Why then is it treated with such
respect, especially by the likes of Russia and China? Already, Israel is
getting under the skin of other members in the Silk Road International Chamber
of Commerce. Its huge gas and oil fields just offshore in the Mediterranean are
on the verge of piping fuel directly to Europe, cutting into Russia’s market.
Manoeuvring its way into the transport of goods via China’s land and sea roads,
Israel is floating the idea of an alternate shipping route to Egypt’s costly
Suez Canal. It will be cheaper and faster, Israel argues, to deliver goods to
Eilat, transfer them to a highspeed train that goes to Ashdod on the
Mediterranean, and from there ship goods throughout the world. In response,
Cairo is already calling foul.
Most importantly, Israel is positioned to guard the world’s Internet.
Everything today is traded, controlled and administered online. And Israel is
emerging as the world’s number one guardian of the worldwide web. That means,
regardless of being a few miles offtrack from China’s Land and Maritime Roads,
it is positioned to be the center of both belts.
Economists worry that China’s ambition could trigger a global economic
collapse; a currency collapse, specifically. Maybe BRICS and One Belt One Road
don’t care. A global currency collapse might be seen as a way to wipe the slate
clean of nation-based currencies, especially the US dollar, and establish an
international one: like Bitcoin, perhaps.
If Bitcoin is the model for a new Internet-based global currency, Israel is
likely to be its guardian too, protecting that currency from hackers around the
As chief of security for the world’s information and currency, and with energy
independence, Israel stands to gain substantial wealth.
It is a position that explains the willingness of Russia and China to negotiate
with Israel today; it is also a position that will invoke resentment tomorrow.
Feeding that resentment will be the small matter of Iran’s determination to
annihilate the Jewish state. Inasmuch as it becomes Israel’s neighbour in Syria
and Lebanon (as, arguably, it already has), Tehran’s ambition to destroy Israel
becomes all but irresistible.
For the sake of trade, China does not want this war. For the same reason,
neither does Russia.
Perhaps someone will come along and, strictly for the sake of business, bring
peace to the Middle East. But if such a treaty failed, or if for any reason
Israel becomes an economic threat to BRICS and One Belt One Road, it is
feasible that Russia will descend, China will march and Tehran will launch.
Why? To extract the sliver-sized country, to unblock the flow of commerce, and
to deal with “the Jewish problem” once and for all.

There could be another pressing factor in the Pope’s enthusiasm for such meetings – a wave of conversions, particularly in Latin America, where it is estimated that100 million Catholics have converted to evangelical Christianity. Now, it appears that Pope Francis would like to evangelize the evangelicals.
"Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things."1 John 2:18-20 (KJV)
Pope Francis is a firm believer in ecumenism, not because he believes in alternate points of view, but because he knows the charismatics and pentecostals so led by their feelings and so light on doctrine are very easily led. And where is he leading them?
Right into the nasty, smelly arms of the Mother of Harlots, the Roman Catholic church.
The Roman Catholic 'Renewal With The Spirit' convocation in 2015 read like a who's who of the the evangelical world.
Starting in 2014, Bible lightweight Joel Osteen made the trek to Rome to bow down before the Pope. He was followed in short order by pastor Tim Timmons and president of the Evangelical Westmont College Gayle D. Beebe.
Louie Giglio And His Wife Shelley Giving Worship To The Roman Pontiff Pope Francis:
Pope Francis then met June 24 of that year with the televangelists James Robins and Kenneth Copeland, with the bishop Anthony Palmer of the Communion Evangelical Episcopal Churches, with the spouses John and Carol Arnott from Toronto and – among others – with Geoff Tunnicliffe and Brian C. Stiller, respectively general secretary and ambassador of the World Evangelical Alliance.
According to the prominent Italian vaticanista Sandro Magister, through these meetings Pope Francis is putting into action a broad effort to “win the favor of the worldwide leaders of those ‘evangelical’ and Pentecostal movements which especially in Latin America are the most fearsome competitor of the Catholic Church, from which they are snatching enormous masses of the faithful.”
Kenneth Copeland Is Selling His Flock To The Vatican:
Attending the Renewal with the Spirit convocation is part of this effort. Pope Francis himself acknowledged – during his trip back from World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro – that he used to look at charismatic movements with suspicion, and that he later changed his mind, and now he believes that “this movement does much good for the Church overall.”
Mixed in amongst this Laodicean smorgasdboard was Pastor Louie Giglio of the Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia. Louie and his wife, Shelley, were caught on tape paying obeisance to Pope Francis "Mafia-style" by kissing him on both cheeks while asking for his blessing. If you have seen the crime epic 'The Godfather' with Marlon Brando, then you know exactly what I am talking about. I have enjoyed some of Louie's sermons in the past, like 'Laminin', but now must warn fellow Bible beliebers that he has departed from the path.
"And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them."Ephesians 5:11 (KJV)
Stay far, far away from this ecumenical junk, it is the doctrine of demons. The Catholic Whore isn't selling, she's buying. And the price of admission will only cost your soul. If your church claims to be Christian and wants you to become involved with "uniting with Rome", put on your track shoes and run away as far and as fast as you can go. Revelation 17 and 18 foretells the fate of the Roman Whore, and the whole mess gets burned to the ground as the entire world watches.
"And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration."Revelation 17:5,6 (KJV)
