Hey Christian, be prepared for the guillotine. It appears at the last “Watchmen on the Wall” conference Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham, beckoned Christians to not be “cowards” and be ready to get one’s head chopped off, and the statement was met with laughter! Here’s a short clip, the full speech will be at the end of the post.
WASHINGTON – The Rev. Franklin Graham told a large gathering of pastors on Thursday to address controversial issues from the pulpit, declaring that “God hates cowards.”
Graham, president and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, based his remarks on Revelation 21:8, wherein God lists eight groups of people who will be “in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
Of groups like murderers, idolaters, unbelievers, and others, the first group of persons listed were the cowardly. It was this first group that Graham focused on for his speech, titled “Standing Strong on the Controversial Issues,” at the Thursday evening session for the 2014 Watchmen on the Wall National Briefing.
“The definition of a coward: a coward will not confront an issue that needs to be confronted due to fear. That is a coward,” said Graham.
“God hates cowards. And the cowards that the Lord is referring to are the men and women who know the truth but refuse to speak it.”
In his remarks at the dinner session, Graham spoke about the need for churches to speak out against abortion and homosexuality, declaring that “you’re not going to shut me up.”
“We have a responsibility to speak on the moral issues. Abortion, homosexuality, these are moral issues. This is a free country, you can do what you want to do but I want you to know it’s a sin against God. This is a sin,” said Graham.
Graham mentioned how he has “friends who are pastors” who say they want to preach the Gospel and not “become targets.”
“Well don’t you think the Lord Jesus Christ was a target?” asked Graham. “Could we get our heads chopped off? We could, maybe one day. So what? Chop it off!”
Franklin Graham’s Magazine: Decision Magazine Cover
Franklin Graham originally made this speech at the Watchmen on the Wall conference in Washington, D.C. in May 2014, he went on to continue his theme in his July/August Magazine. Both the FRC who sponsors the Watchmen on the Wall group and Billy Graham’s magazine feature prominent Jesuits within Evangelical circles.
Is Franklin Graham a Jesuit? I don’t know if he is one, I do know he promotes them, speaks with them, and endorses them on his website. Retried General Jerry Boykin is an open Jesuit and he was also at the Watchman on the Wall conference. Boykin is also currently the Vice President of FRC (Family Research Council). Boykin is close with CNP founder Timothy LaHaye and Skip Heitzig (Calvary Chapel).
Another blogger recently wrote about Skip Heitzig and Franklin Graham. It appears Heitzig was making comments about Franklin’s trip to a Catholic Church in Poland. You may read the full article here: Ephesians 511 Blog
The post referenced only seemed to add confirmation to my suspicions that Franklin Graham is acting as a Jesuit, leading the Christian to the guillotine. His comments are not just an exhortation to Pastors and to Christians to be more affirmative with their faith and to “not be cowards” what he’s really doing is double speak. He’s inciting Christians and thus provoking them to stand out to be beheaded. It’s not as obvious to the mundane observer, you have to know how these Jesuits behave and that what they say is always laced with deception.
The real question through all of this is Why would Franklin Graham be priming the Christian community for the guillotine? What gives him the right to instigate people to start a holy jihad? He’s been known for saying inflammable things before relating to Muslims in America. Just like his buddy, Ret. General Jerry Boykin, he’s called the Christian to get ready for “war” and to become “soldiers for Christ.” Is this God talk or is this Jesuit double speak? Jesuits swear oaths to the Pope, they pledge to lie and to mislead any and all denominations for the sake of their “mission.” Right now we have a Jesuit pope who has been meeting vigorously with Evangelicals (friends of Franklin Graham). Boykin is an avowed Jesuit himself, many on the Watchman on the Wall roster are friends with other Jesuits.
Franklin Graham was addressing Pastors and leaders at the Watchmen on the Wall conference, in his magazine he’s addressing Christians. Franklin is not exhorting us to being separate from false teachers or false doctrine, he’s implanting thoughts to stir people in regards to cultural mores that have befallen us. The world is not going to retreat and go back to shunning homosexuality, it’s not going to all of a sudden do a 180 degree turn and eliminate abortion. While Franklin Graham rubs shoulders with Mormons, Catholics, and Church of Christ Christian Cults he’s beckoning you to shout from the rooftops so that you will suffer persecution, but not persecution for holding to the Solid Foundation of Jesus Christ Only (no works, no idols, no pope, no regeneration via baptism for Salvation, no Joseph Smith was a liar and a false prophet). He and Boykin and others are militarizing Christians and getting some ready for persecution for all the wrong reasons. When their boss is the pope it’s no wonder, but you need to be aware of their tricks. Groups like Watchmen on the Wall appeal to a certain group of people who want righteous living, who are conservative, who wish America was back to the good ole’ days, but really what does the Bible tell us about these days? The days will wax worse and worse, there will be a great falling away. The Watchmen on the Wall on their very own website direct Pastors to reach across denominations, to be “bridges,” to connect with others whether or not they have sound doctrine. It’s more gathering together, widening the road to destruction, it’s not the NARROW GATE, it’s not the STRAIGHT PATH. Be warned Christian!
We are given a warning, and an exhortation, by our beloved Savior and Lord Jesus Christ on exactly why and how we will be persecuted. Is this the same warning given by Franklin Graham?
Matthew 10:22 Jesus speaking
16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. 17But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; 18And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. 19But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. 20For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
21And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. 22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
23But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.
24The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. 25It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?
US: Russia ‘violated missile treaty’ http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-28538387
It don’t mean a thing of it ain’t got that zing…
Obama is all bluster and no muster. He’s not going to do anything. Sanctions aren’t fazing Putin. Putin has the upper hand at every angle; he’s popular in Russia, most of Ukraine wants to rejoin mother Russia, and all of Europe fears him. He has Iran, Syria, and China as his closest allies. Who dares to go up against the bear?
Obama weaksauceMcGee? Nah. He has our military hyper extended in Afghanistan (Russia proxy war), Iraq (Syria proxy war), Libya and Egypt (Israel proxy war), he’s got CIA in Ukraine and don’t forget the Sudan. At every turn we are shooting ourselves in the foot. Kerry is as inept as Rodham-Clinton. Our own home front, the southern borders are vulnerable. Dare we poke the bear and say anything about their missile test? As if we really planned to disarm ourselves?

Sudan ‘apostasy’ woman meets Pope http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-28460383
EXCERPT FROM ARTICLE:
Mrs Ibrahim met Pope Francis at his Santa Marta residence at the Vatican soon after her arrival.
“The Pope thanked her for her witness to faith,” Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi was quoted as saying.
The meeting, which lasted around half an hour, was intended to show “closeness and solidarity for all those who suffer for their faith,” he added.
The BBC’s Alan Johnston in Rome says there was no prior indication of Italy’s involvement in the case.
Lapo Pistelli, Italy’s vice-minister for foreign affairs, accompanied her on the flight from Khartoum and posted a photo of himself with Mrs Ibrahim and her children on his Facebook account as they were about to land in Rome.
“Mission accomplished,” he wrote.
She was accused of being an “apostate” for rejecting Islam and proclaiming she is a “Christian. ” She was sentenced to death while carrying her unborn child. Before her daughter’s birth she was in jail waiting her execution and appealing to the world. Her sentence was overturned, she was released, she attempted to flee Sudan and was arrested again. She made it out of the country, escaped death and jail by supposedly clinging to her convictions to not denounce Jesus Christ. She then ended her fight by visiting the highest seat of abomination against Jesus Christ, a man, a Jesuit man who is nothing more than an idolater, the Pope. She went to see the Pope straightaway. Guess what “Meriam” you ARE an Apostate.
*should’ve known it was a Jesuit double cross the whole time. :-/
“Mission Accomplished” ? Yeah…it was a mission, a psy-op mission! :-p
**Not an endorsement of Christian today or Palmer’s false gospel. Thanks Eph 511 blog author for tip.
“Evangelicals and other Christians worldwide are mourning the sudden death of a bishop in a breakaway Anglican church who had become a close personal friend of Pope Francis.
British-born Tony Palmer has died in hospital following hours of surgery after a motorcycle accident in the UK.
He moved with his family to South Africa when he was ten but currenty lived with his wife Emiliana and two children in Trowbridge, Wiltshire. He was a bishop with the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches, which embraced the middle ground of Anglican identity.
In January this year Pope Francis sent Bishop Palmer to a charismatic conference hosted by television evangelist Kenneth Copeland, where he unveiled a video message of unity and love that the Pope had suggested he do.” End of quote
