Click on Christianity today to get the fluffy historical rewrite of Chuck Smith Sr. Continue reading for commentary by a former Calvary Chapel attender.

[] N4TM Commentary

Chuck Smith didn’t start the famous Calvary Chapel upon inspiration, he built it. He used people like homosexual charismatic hippie, Lonnie Frisbee, and claimed his wife Kay had a vision of them saving the souls of hippies. Chuck Smith was a son to a Foursquare Pastor. Chuck Smith began as a Four Square pastor in obscurity. He faked speaking in tongues as his brother Paul Smith stated once at a “Prophesy Conference,” and his Mega Church industry Calvary Chapel was and has been plagued by false doctrine, cover-ups, sexual abuse, thievery, and more.

I don’t know the state of the man, Chuck Smith, before his passing. Perhaps he did some soul searching, maybe he knew every single lie he ever told and never repented of publicly and made a confession of the heart before his last breath, I dunno. The bible tells us that men’s hearts can be seared like as if with a hot iron, so that they are able to continue to do the evil that they do without conviction of sin. Maybe Chuck Smith felt justified seeing his inception swell to global lengths and felt as though God himself confirmed his false teaching by expounding his industry? Then I’m reminded of another verse, “wide is the gate that leads to destruction…,” maybe what some believed is “blessed of God” is really catapulted by the god of this world? I don’t want to get into the subject matter of “who will take over” the pyramidal kingdom that this man built. I personally don’t care who takes the keys to Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa or the ‘brotherhood’ of this clan. There are many well known names who’ve all succumbed to compromise and apostasy that are great candidates to take over the Dove Club.

If you are a Calvary Chapel attender (because they don’t have membership-even though they are like McDonald’s, you can find one in every state you visit and they’re all the same) and you are concerned about which way the wind will blow now that the big kahuna is gone, I suggest you stop worrying about MAN and get right with God.

Matthew 23 

Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,

Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat:

All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.

For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,

And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,

And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.

And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.” Click here for the whole chapter Matthew 23

I’ve written a lot on Calvary Chapel and Chuck Smith since I left. You can do a search here on my blog, do a Google search with news4themasses and chuck smith, or you can simply stop and pray and ask the Lord to reveal to you through His Holy Spirit, whether or not Calvary Chapel is teaching the truth and whether or not you should continue in attending there. I began to see dimly while I was there, the light continued to shine through the darkness I was wrapped up in until I became totally willing that God in His great power to remove all false teaching and show me if what I was being taught there was of Him. Some things were, I did hear the Word of God. God’s word can penetrate through the marrow! and thank God it did! I was saved, born again, redeemed by my Lord and Savior Jesus while at CC. CC did not save me, Jesus Christ Saved Me! My salvation is solid and true and I made it out of CC and I pray that those of you who are caught by that snare find your way out as well. I don’t need to say anymore on Chuck Smith the man. It’s appointed for all men to die, then the judgement (God will Judge him-not me). Chuck Smith didn’t die for your sins, Jesus Christ died for your sins. Remember that.

The real man who founded Calvary Chapel was Lonnie Frisbee, the gay hippie preacher who died long ago and was written out of the CC history books.

DO NOT believe Beck

Things have gotten to a whole new level of weirdness. Without having the time to explain, I simply ask you to not believe Glenn Beck and his new level of insanity. Reader, please be careful. Test all things.

Here’s an update on why I posted this latest warning on Glenn Beck. I saw several tweets this afternoon by BeckBots (my term for those who follow Glenn Beck blindly and defend him vehemently) that Glenn Beck is Warning Barack Obama to tell the truth to the public or ‘he’ (Glenn Beck) will. There is a WND (World Net Daily) article that is helping in this propaganda. I just viewed this YouTube video posted by Right Wing Media:

I don’t know exactly what Glenn Beck is trying to do, but he has a lot of followers who follow everything he says without any consideration for whom Glenn Beck really serves. I’ve warned extensively about Glenn Beck and that Christians should stop listening to him. Glenn Beck is a liar and a deceiver and he’s been leading Christians away from the truth. Beck is serving Mammon, he worships a false christ, and he is deceiving many for an even greater evil than his belly. If Glenn is being used to stir the American people into a frenzy of false information he would certainly qualify as a useful idiot for the role. He’s revered enough to instigate a civil disruption, of which would only serve Obama’s purposes. I don’t for a second believe Glenn Beck is on the side of “Truth” or the “American Way.” Here is the WND article: click here. I do not endorse WND, the founders of WND are connected to CNP and Jesuits. Beck has hosted Jesuit, Ret. General William Gerry Boykin. There appears to be a severe spiritual purpose behind these latest actions. I caution those who claim to be born again Christians who follow Glenn Beck to test him and his motives. We are not to believe every spirit but we should be testing them to see if they are truly followers of Christ. One key consideration, who is the author of Confusion? Is Glenn Beck causing confusion and hysteria? He keeps his readers and listeners in a constant state of frenzy and hopelessness as though impending doom lurks around every corner, is that Christ-like?

Millions Watch The History Channel Version of the Bible

“The History Channel said the premiere of “The Bible” attracted 14.8 million viewers. The first two-hour installment aired Sunday.

Four more episodes of the miniseries will be broadcast each Sunday night this month.

The series was produced by actress Roma Downey, of “Touched by an Angel” fame, and Mark Burnett, producer of reality TV shows like “Survivor” and “The Amazing Race.” (And “The Voice”) Source CBN (not an endorsement).

Disclaimer: I do not have cable, hence I have not seen this miniseries.

I’m just going to guess based on years and years of misrepresenting the Holy Scriptures that the History Channel will not accurately portray scripture. Just my wild ideas that this miniseries has more to do with making MONEY than with sharing the true word of God and true Doctrines by which my Christian faith is based on. I’m going to go out on a limb and say before this miniseries is over it will somehow morph into an Ecumenical love feast and dilute the saving power of Christ’s blood that was shed on the Cross for our sins. I’m going to venture to say that there will be inserted shadows of other religions portrayed in the film with a favorable look so that the viewer who might be Christian will have a more compromised empathetic view of these other cults and religions that sell lies and immatate Christianity. But this is me and my pessimestic conspiratorial thought process, who am I to say.

Operation Smile's 30th Anniversary Smile Gala - Arrivals“The Voice” producer Mark Burnett and wife, former actress Roma Downey. I don’t know anything about these people. I vaugly see that they were on Glenn Beck’s show promoting their miniseries. My readers know that I do not trust Glenn Beck and I count him as a false teacher, one who is leading Christians away from the One true God into a Christ “consiousness” type of theology that matches Beck’s Mormonism and false god Moroni. So, sigh, I am willing to hear from you if you’ve watched it and found it to be an “exact” and “accurate” rendering of the Word of God, however, like I said I’m going to guess that ultimately the power of CGI will delude even more of my brethren and lead them astray…

“Enter ye in at the straight gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: Because straight is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:13,14

Calvary Chapel’s ungodly “Seat of Moses” Government Continues unabated

What does the Bible have to say about “Moses’ seat?”

Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,

Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, And greetings in the markets, and to be called of  men, Rabbi, Rabbi. But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. 10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. 11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. 13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.” Matt.23:1-13

From Calvary Chapel Distinctives:

WE BELIEVE that the church government should be simplistic rather than a complex bureaucracy, and we depend on the Holy Spirit to lead, rather than on fleshly promotion. We recognize there are various biblical models for governing a local church body; however, we follow the biblical model of a pastor-led church as demonstrated by God’s leading the nation of Israel through Moses, and by Christ leading His flock through pastors of the early church.

CCOF is now CCA (Calvary Chapel Association)

Here’s the “Leadership Council” page

Here’s the “Regional Leadership” Map page

I left CC and I’m happy that I am no longer in that “Movement.” (That was me being kind) They still meet: 2012 Pastors Convention (click here), they still have their circuit speakers and “experts” defining the end of the world and who’s Apostate (Rick Warren-but not BFF Greg Laurie or ancient Jedi night Chuck Smith who mentored them) and who’s not: Greg Laurie, Skip Heitzig, Bob Coy, Gayle Erwin and Chuck Smith. I’ve said so much on CC already it feels like a moot point to report on them any further. There are people, beside myself, who have survived the throws of such a cult and to my fellow survivors I say, “Praise the Lord! You are free!” To those who are still engulfed in the “CC Movement” I pass no judgement on you (unless you know how deep and seedy things are there and continue to sit under such falsity) one day you may find yourself seeking the whole truth about this “Movement” and you’ll find your way back to this website and others who’ve trudged the road less traveled and tried to shed light on the darkness within CC.

In the meantime CC continues to grow (wide is the gate).  It’s not unusual that a “Movement” such as this has yet to cease from existence. Jesus warned us there would be false teachers, false Christs, and so it has been since before and since Jesus walked this earth. The truth does always win out~ the men who are sitting on the seat exalted of their own accord will be made known and it’ll be God’s doing not N4TM.  The further and longer it has been since I left CC I am less aware of what CC is up to, and I like it that way!

David Barton Rewriter of History Now has his own Bible!

I came across a tweet today and the link was to this very well written expose about David Barton, “Confirmed: David Barton’s Founders’ Bible Cites Pro-Slavery James Hammond as Proponent of America as Christian Nation,” By Warren Throckmorton. The link is not an endorsement. It was refreshing to see someone else warning about Barton’s blatant rewrite of history and now his addition of adding a Pro-Slavery non-believer to a “Bible” just seemed apropos for Barton’s next phase.

David Barton is a known and exposed False teacher. He is one of the biggest cons to surface in recent years. Barton is backed by Calvary Chapel, Chuck Missler, Glenn Beck, John Hagee, just to name a few other false teachers.

I can only pray that my brothers and sisters in the Lord would cease from their ear tickling long enough, step away from lifting up America as an idol of worship, and return to the True Word of God for direction in all things. The simple fact that there is an audience and a market for David Barton, Missler, Beck, et. al is sad, however it is a fulfillment of prophecy, the great falling away is apparent. Cling to the Words of Jesus and not some charlatan who’s out to make a buck and a name for himself.

Worse Than The Patriot’s Bible: David Barton’s The Founders’ Bible (not an endorsement of the site- no link ever is) “Three years ago, it was the The Patriot’s Bible oh that just so happened to be printed with the rise of the Tea Party. Now, just in time for the 2012 elections, we have the The Founders’ Bible brought to us by the same people who gave us William P. Young’s The Shack.” End of Quote.

http://www.rightwingwatch.org/category/people/david-barton

Barton is not the only one who’s written his own version of the Bible or published a Bible Commentary book to promote his own twisted interpretation of the Scripture. Another Pastor, Rick Warren wrote one for Barack Obama called the Poverty and Justice Bible. It was promoted by the likes of Tony Campolo and Bono. Same hat trick, different mad hatter.

Romney was ProChoice, funded State abortions through Romney Care, and Profited from disposing of aborted fetuses

The Following was taken from this site: http://prolifeprofiles.com/mitt-romney-abortion  *Please click on the link to full the full site because there’s much more chronicled information than what I put here. (*Links to sites are not an endorsement of the site but are for informational purposes only)

As a “Pro-family” Republican Candidate: by his undeniable record fully documented below, Mitt Romney:

  • - created RomneyCare which is terribly similar to ObamaCare but even worse for it openly funds all abortions, on demand
    – put Planned Parenthood on the so-called “independent” board he created that offers $50 co-pay abortions
    – thereby instituted tax-funded abortion on demand two years after his orchestrated “pro-life” conversion
    – as late as 2012 says he would nominate judges in the mold of Chief Justice John Roberts (who upheld Obamacare)
    – continues to defend aborting hundreds of thousands of kids (denying their God-given right to life)
    – supported destructive embryonic research after his false 2004 pro-life conversion
    – put a pro-abortion Democratic judge on the bench after Romney had claimed a pro-life conversion
    – falsely claims that a court ordered him to institute same-sex marriage, a travesty he is to blame for
    – single-handedly instituted same-sex marriage and later fabricated a claim that a court ordered him to do so
    – bragged that he would continue to defend abortion “rights” after he claimed a pro-life conversion
    – denies responsibility for 10-member board funding abortion even though his executive branch filled 7 seats
    – pro-choice in ’94; pro-life in ’01; choice ’02; pro-life ’04; choice ’05; life in ’06; then funded abortion in ’06; and now in 2012 he has a “health exception,” the loophole opened by the Supreme Court’s Doe v. Bolton opinion that allows all abortions, as in Colorado for example, throughout all nine months.
  • Change of Heart? Preparing to begin his bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2005, Mitt Romney orchestrated a demonstrably false 2004 pro-life conversion1 2. Romney must have expected that leading conservative media outlets, groups, authors, and talk show hosts (like Sean Hannity and Hugh Hewitt) would ignore, deny, or even defend his subsequent pro-abortion efforts. Romney’s support for dismembering unborn children proves that his “conversion” was a political deception devised to steal pro-life votes. So putting Planned Parenthood on the state board that he created which authorized even late-term tax-funded abortion on demand, a crime against humanity far beyond anything the Clintons or Barack Obama have been able to accomplish, is brushed aside by untrustworthy “pro-life” conservative leaders.
  • Authorizing Tax-Funded Abortion: On April 12, 2006 Romney signed3 Massachusetts’ government health care plan4 that from the start has provided taxpayer funds even for what are called “elective” abortions, killing unborn children without even the facade of the typical though invalid medical excuses common in tax-funded abortion laws. Romney’s government-run health care plan5 predated Barack Obama’s health care reform and according to the government of Massachusetts, “All Commonwealth Care health plans include… abortion.”6

Romney Care was/is the precursor to Obama care

  • Tax-Payers Forced to Fund Abortion: Unlike the countless “liberals” and moderates who are “pro-choice” but oppose tax-funded abortion, “RomneyCare” goes beyond being merely “pro-choice” and is radically pro-abortion by overtly paying abortionists to perform any and all types of abortions with tax dollars.7 8
  • If I Did It, Here’s How It Happened: Can Mitt Romney be connected to the authority that offers tax-funded abortion? Other than, that is, that he created it, determined its composition, and staffed it? Romney and his executive branch had staffing control over seven of the ten members of the board he created. But here’s Romney’s lie to pass the blame for tax-funded abortion onto his friends. If I Did It: Romney claims, “The Commonwealth Care benefit services package was developed by the Connector Authority – an independent authority separate from the Governor’s Office. … Their decisions were made separate of the Romney administration.”20 The truth is that the “Connector” was created by Romney’s authority with the Act of 2006 that he signed,21 it was placed under Romney’s executive branch administration,22 23 and was run by a ten-member board with four members directly seated by Romney’s authority: the Planned Parenthood seat which he created,24 and three others appointed by Romney himself, and three appointed by Romney’s attorney general who was also part of the executive branch and Romney administration.”25
  • It’s Not My Fault: The health care plan Romney signed into law states, “Any action of the connector may take effect immediately and need not be published or posted.”26 Romney’s denial of responsibility for tax-funded abortion is like a governor appointing a known racist and giving him authority to lynch and then denying any responsibility.
  • 1994 Pro-Choice Run: Romney ran for Senator in Massachusetts as pro-choice in 1994,53 attended an abortion fundraiser on June 12th,54 and his wife Ann gave $150 to Planned Parenthood.55 56  (End of quote-see source link above for full site and more information)

Romney Invested in Medical-Waste Firm That Disposed of Aborted Fetuses, Government Documents Show (From MotherJones a very liberal site)

“The Stericycle deal—the abortion connection aside—is relevant because of questions regarding the timing of Romney’s departure from the private equity firm he founded. Responding to a recent Washington Post story reporting that Bain-acquired companies outsourced jobs, the Romney campaign insisted that Romney exited Bain in February 1999, a month or more before Bain took over two of the companies named in the Post‘s article. The SEC documents undercut that defense, indicating that Romney still played a role in Bain investments until at least the end of 1999.

Here’s what happened with Stericycle. In November 1999, Bain Capital and Madison Dearborn Partners, a Chicago-based private equity firm, filed with the SEC a Schedule 13D, which lists owners of publicly traded companies, noting that they had jointly purchased $75 million worth of shares in Stericycle, a fast-growing player in the medical-waste industry. (That April, Stericycle had announced plans to buy the medical-waste businesses of Browning Ferris Industries and Allied Waste Industries.) The SEC filing lists assorted Bain-related entities that were part of the deal, including Bain Capital (BCI), Bain Capital Partners VI (BCP VI), Sankaty High Yield Asset Investors (a Bermuda-based Bain affiliate), and Brookside Capital Investors (a Bain offshoot). And it notes that Romney was the “sole shareholder, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of BCI, BCP VI Inc., Brookside Inc. and Sankaty Ltd.”

The document also states that Romney “may be deemed to share voting and dispositive power with respect to” 2,116,588 shares of common stock in Stericycle “in his capacity as sole shareholder” of the Bain entities that invested in the company. That was about 11 percent of the outstanding shares of common stock. (The whole $75 million investment won Bain, Romney, and their partners 22.64 percent of the firm’s stock—the largest bloc among the firm’s owners.) The original copy of the filing was signed by Romney.

Another SEC document filed November 30, 1999, by Stericycle also names Romney as an individual who holds “voting and dispositive power” with respect to the stock owned by Bain. If Romney had fully retired from the private equity firm he founded, why would he be the only Bain executive named as the person in control of this large amount of Stericycle stock?

Stericycle was a lucrative investment for Romney and Bain. The company had entered the medical-waste business a decade earlier, when it took over a food irradiation plant in Arkansas and began zapping medical waste, rather than strawberries, with radiation. The company subsequently replaced irradiation with a technology that used low-frequency radio waves to sterilize medical waste—gowns, masks, gloves, and other medical equipment—before it was transported to an incinerator. By mid-1997, Stericycle was the second-largest medical-waste disposal business in the nation. Two years later, it was the largest. With 240,000 customers, its operations spanned the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. Fortune ranked it No. 10 on its list of the 100 fastest growing companies in the nation.”

(End of Quote: See MotherJones Story here for full text)

From “The Examiner” a spin off of Fox News Generally more conservative

“Stericycle is a medical waste firm that disposes of medical waste from clinics and hospitals including “waste” from abortions that pro-life supporters consider to be human remains deserving of burial.

Reports surfaced in July that Mitt Romney personally and Bain Capital invested millions of dollars in Stericycle and profited handsomely from that investment. Details have been hidden because Romney used an off shore company he owned in a confidential tax haven, Bermuda, to make the investments.

Romney used to be pro-choice and supported Roe v Wade. He has flip flopped and now says he is anti-abortion. The Stericycle investment raises eyebrows because some conservatives say Mitt’s money is not where his mouth is.

Even though pro-life groups had targeted Stericlycle prior to this disclosure about Romney’s investment, the issue has been as hidden as Romney’s tax returns—until now. Mother Jones broke the story, but other than Mother Jones and this column, no one has really covered Romney’s investment in Stericycle.” (end of Quote. See here for full Story: Pro-life group wants GOP to suspend nomination of Romney…)

Hey, “Young Turk,” I care! I may not do a whole lot, but what I do is care. I care enough that I’m willing to be attacked by all the people on the right who are in love with Romney and Ryan simply because they are brainwashed by the rhetoric. I’m willing to loose readers by putting out a post like this which reveals who Romney really is. Now, I must add this disclaimer, I’m not a Liberal, I’m not for Obama, I’m not a “lefty;” however, thanks to age and wisdom I am no longer considering myself a “Republican” either. Because I know the type of propaganda that spews from the pulpits of the Christian Right as well I will not call myself that either. I’m not in the “Tea Party” movement, and I don’t know a lick about what Libertarian’s believe so don’t call me that either. I’m willing to error on the side of truth and just bow out completely from this year’s most fake and bogus Presidential Campaign in history! And you thought 2008 was historical. No my friends, you have to go into this election fully aware of what you are doing and whom you are voting in. I do not agree with, “anybody but Obama.” I fell for that bowl of lie soup last time and almost fainted in the voter stand as I cast my vote because I knew how “Liberal” the Republican candidate was and didn’t think we’d be any safer with him! This time I am not going to sacrifice my ethical and moral judgement based on some stupid movie (2016) or “Empty Chair” propaganda. Don’t you see, don’t you get it, Romney is the Liberal in this election that is exactly why Clint Eastwood endorsed him and that’s exactly what you’re going to get. He’s not going to repeal Roe Vs. Wade, the repealed Don’t Ask Don’t tell, the Obama Health Care Act, the DHS or TSA grouping you at the airports, he’s not going to lock down the borders (North or South), he’s going to keep state determined marriage laws for same sex marriages. What is he actually going to do “if” (even CNN wants Romney they use the term “when”) Romney gets elected? From his RNC speech it sounds like he’s going to start new trade wars with China and instigate Russia possibly into a military war! (Bunny trail moment: The more I think about our Foreign policy the more I wonder if the US is not the “hook in the jaw” that you read about in Ezekiel’s war.) We seem to be doing everything we can to disrupt the Middle East and uproot Africa and stir the sleeping Bear of the North. God Help us. I do believe America is great and that we are a good nation, and I say that knowing much of the evils we do commit! However, we cannot continue to blindly and stupidly elect these Terrorists. Yes, I said it, producing illegal wars, killing innocent lives both domestically via abortion, and internationally in wars that are never voted on by our Congress but funded and blessed in secret via executive orders is wrong. The “Christian right” is the categorical group I have the most frustration with because –You– (we) are supposed to be held to a higher standard and are to reflect Christ. Instead the Christian Right is screaming that Romney is a “Christian” when he worships Moroni and has another Jesus; and yet, condemning Obama for being a “closet Muslim?!” This is stupidity. The Christian Right listens to Jesuit Generals and “Christian” Authors more than their own doctrines that Christ taught. Whatever you do on election day make your decision an educated one, and accept full responsibility; and don’t blame Glenn Beck because he “didn’t tell you” that Romney and all of Mormonism is truly Replacement Theology, their church LDS, replaces Israel as the covenant people. You have google, start your own vetting.

Chuck Missler and Lambert Dolphin (pictured).

Missler’s video above is on the topic of “Bible Codes” and more specifically “EQUIDISTANT LETTER SEQUENCES.” When I Googled just “Equidistant Letter Sequences” an article written by Lambert Dolphin, Chuck Missler’s old time friend, popped up. Coincidentally the entire article sounds like what Chuck Missler gave in his short video; more importantly Lambert’s article pointed me in the right direction, finding out where Dolphin and Missler get their “ideas” from! Below is an excerpt from one of Mr. Dolphin’s posts:

“Hidden Scientific Codes in Genesis”

“It has become fashionable for contemporary Bible teachers to claim that Genesis is not intended to give a scientific, detailed account of how God created the universe, but that rather it is often said that the Hebrew prose of the opening book of the Bible is painted in broad brush strokes only. However, when one looks at a level below the obvious translation of the text into meaningful words understood as human language, the text of Genesis actually contains an encrypted code revealing the geometry of time and space, patterns for all living things, and the roots of all every alphabet and every language known to man!

Some years ago a Jewish scholar, Stan Tenen of the Meru Foundation noticed that the ordered arrangement of the Hebrew letters of Genesis 1:1 was not random. If 27 letters of the Hebrew alphabet were assigned a numerical value from 1 to 27 (with Aleph being counted as a “0”) then Genesis 1:1 (and all the subsequent text thus far examined) can be easily decoded into patterns using a counting base of 3. (emphasis added)

It should be noted that Tenen’s work is not the same thing as Biblical numerology—where numbers occurring in the text of the Bible (such as 3, 4, 6, 12, 40, etc.) can be seen to have symbolic meaning. Likewise Tenen is not dealing with what is usually thought of as esoteric Jewish Kabalistic mysticism, or Christian mysticism, in his analysis. What he has discovered is that the text of the Bible is actually an incredible computer code with built-in error correction features and levels of complexity. These findings taken all by themselves apart from faith or religious belief system immediately suggest the Bible is indeed much more than the inspired words of religious writers, but must in fact be the very Word of God.

Much wild and fanciful material has been written on the so called “Bible codes” in recent years–and most of it is either erroneous or at best useless. However the actual hidden structures in the Bible are really there and attest eloquently to the Divine Authorship of our Bibles. The definitive book on this subject is The Cosmic Codes, by Chuck Missler. It is extremely thorough and carefully written.” Source: Lambert Dolphin http://www.ldolphin.org/Introgen.html (not an endorsement. Dolphin’s article links to K-House)

N4TM- In the above excerpt Dolphin is misleading the reader. He says “Jewish Scholar” Stan Tenen, Stan Tenen is a Kabbalist fair and square. I have posted below Stan Tenen’s own video where he gives the exact explanation for ELS’s and it sounds exactly like what Missler explained. Another aspect where Dolphin distorts the truth is when he states that Tenen is “not” dealing with Kabbalistic mysticism, but according to Tenen’s own words that is exactly what he’s done. Make sure to watch the whole  3 parts of Tenen’s videos, it’s thirty minutes but if you watch and listen with discernment it explains a lot about him, and he is who Lambert and Missler are getting their information from! Picture of Lambert Dolphin “at his computerized Ouija board” was taken from his own site! Below is one more excerpt from another one of Dolphin’s posts:

“Editors Note: I have long been interested in the possibility of hidden codes in the Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible. Stan Tenen of the Meru Foundation has been doing remarkable, and I believe meaningful, computer analysis of Genesis from which he has gleaned what would appear to be some amazing geometrical properties of the universe. Recently interest in Torah Codes has mushroomed both among Christians such as Grant Jeffrey, numerous groups of Torah scholars in Israel, and others, for instance The Official Torah Codes Page .

I welcome Uri Marcus’ article which helps bring balance and reason to this discussion since many extravagant claims are being made. Lambert Dolphin, February 22, 1997. Thanks to Grant Jeffrey and Yacob Rambsel also for their response at the end of this article.” Source: Lambert Dolphin http://www.ldolphin.org/torahcodes.html (not an endorsement, the links were hypertext in his original post and are also not endorsed by N4TM)

Missler’s Video above has more details in it that are red flags but I am not going to expound on everything in this post.

Stan Tenen of the Meru Foundation:

Stan Tenen read what? Kabbalah books. He also read every other type of Mystical literature. In this video he doesn’t mention reading the New Testament. I don’t want to waste too much time researching Mr. Tenen, but you get the point with this thirty minute video don’t you? Do you know, or can you see the vanity, the divination being practiced? Can you discern the symbols he uses, and that he ultimately says that all religions are true (part 3 video)?

Stan Tenen is just one Kabbalist where Missler and Lambert are getting their information. They are basing their “biblical” knowledge and discernment based of mystics, rabbi’s who are not converted to believe in Jesus Christ the Messiah, and yet they are “using” their bible decoding system? What is the purpose here? Is Missler trying to encode the listener and students he has? I never heard of Kabbalah until I listened to a Chuck Missler CD on “exposing Kabbalah.” I never paid any attention to Quantum physics until I heard Mr. Missler allude to it at nausea in his teachings.

Someone asked me in the comment section on a previous post, Slight of hand: False Prophet Chuck Missler still on Speaker Schedule with other Calvary Chapel Discerners, “You failed to say what the heresy was. He s the best Bible scholar l know on tv or internet. In fact possibly one of the very few l would call a scholar on tv. Please do let me know what heresy you re talking about.” I told this commenter that I was not ignoring her comment but rather I was praying about whether or not to do a separate post on Missler’s heresy.

Hindsight is 20/20

It was not until I completely left Calvary Chapel that I recognized the error that seems so clear to me now. Missler’s air of expertise and his vast vocabulary of areas we the common people have little knowledge of can be impressive and also deceptive. Since I don’t know the first thing about “M-theory” when Missler spoke of it and I had only known him from Calvary Chapel and Prophesy Conferences held in Churches or sponsored by churches held in conference centers, one assumed it was biblical or at least that Missler knew what he is talking about. I sought to explain how Missler is Amiss, and for me it doesn’t take much to come to this conclusion. This video is not how I learned about Missler being false it’s a demonstration and an example of his false teachings. Start examining what he’s teaching. I watch a video, such as the one at the beginning of this post, I stop and ask a question, Who is Missler referring to? I looked him up (Rabbi Moshe Cordovero), the guy is a Kabbalist! Then I continue to hear the rest of the video, he’s talking about ELS’s; What is that I ask myself, and I Googled it. I see Lambert Dolphin has written on the topic. From previous research on Missler I have come to know how lengthy Dolphin’s relationship with Missler is. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if Dolphin is one of Missler’s ghost writers. I read Dolphin’s article, he keeps referring to Stan Tenen, who’s that guy? Stan Tenen is a Kabbalist. Once I watched the full 30 minute video “Frist light” by Stan Tenen it sounded exactly like what Chuck Missler spoke on in the video on ELS’s. It doesn’t take much more than that for me to realize that Mr. Missler is learning from Kabbalists and he’s rewriting their teachings and putting a “Christianese” flair on it and selling it off as though he has some inside tract on decoding the bible. I could go a step further and ask is Missler encoding his subjects while he’s presumably teaching about ‘decoding’ the Bible? On another video I’ve seen of Missler, with Sid Roth on “It’s Supernatural,”  Missler is spewing his “Aliens are Demons, fallen Angels, ie, Nephilim,” (Not an Endorsement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54DRUR57Oos) I discerned that he’s taking scripture out of context and putting his own “theory” on it. Or is it his theory? Maybe his theory on Demons being UFO’s came from his friends Grant Jeffery and/or Tom Horn who study the paranormal. I’ve reported on Missler’s CNP connections, his ties to Tim LaHaye, his SwanSat business, attempting to create a single currency for Africa via the Auric, not to mention his false prophesy of the Y2K computer malfunction that never happened that is public knowledge. If you look at Chuck Missler and test his teachings against scripture and not the other way around it will not be long before Scripture tells you his teaching are false. What he’s doing by quoting Enoch (Apocrypha & non-canonized) and quoting Kabbalah and trying to use Mystical and Extra-Biblical teachings to “illuminate” the scriptures is backwards and it’s called Divination.

divination

DIVINATION, n. L., to foretell. See Divine.

1. The act of divining; a foretelling future events, or discovering things secret or obscure, by the aid of superior beings, or by other than human means. The ancient heathen philosophers divided divination into two kinds, natural and artificial. Natural divination was supposed to be effected by a kind of inspiration or divine afflatus; artificial divination was effected by certain rites, experiments or observations, as by sacrifices, cakes, flour, wine, observation of entrails, flight of birds, lots, verses, omens, position of the stars, &c.

2. Conjectural presage; prediction.

Leviticus 19: 31

31 ‘Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.

Deuteronomy 18:10

10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer,

2 Kings 17:17

17 And they caused their sons and daughters to pass through the fire, practiced witchcraft and soothsaying, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger.

Leviticus 20:6-7

‘And the person who turns to mediums and familiar spirits, to prostitute himself with them, I will set My face against that person and cut him off from his people. Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am the Lord your God.

My most favorite scripture that helps me with this sort of discernment:

“If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams, and he gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes to pass, of which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods’—which you have not known—‘and let us serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams, for the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. You shall walk after the Lord your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice; you shall serve Him and hold fast to Him. But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has spoken in order to turn you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of bondage, to entice you from the way in which the Lord your God commanded you to walk. So you shall put away the evil from your midst.” Deuteronomy 13:1-5
