The Rise of End-Time Occultism
E-Booklet now available!


The Rise of End-Time Occultism

We have turned another popular Herescope article series, The Rise of End-Time Occultism, into an E-Booklet, available online as a free download at Gaylene Goodroad's blog:

This book focuses on the rise of a new prophecy eschatology in the evangelical church world that looks NOT for "that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ." Many endtime prophecy teachers are switching their focus to an anticipated cosmic invasion of monstrous space alien creatures which some teach Christians must battle using spiritual warfare technologies. Many evangelicals are now believing in these dramatic endtime invasion conspiracy scenarios which are accompanied by salacious imagery and sensational hype. But is all of this biblical?

Resetting the Reformation: Part 4

Part 1: TOGETHER 2016: Unbiblical Unity on the National Mall

Part 2: Betraying the Reformers - Betraying the Gospel

Part 3: Unholy Alliances to the Apostate Bridge


“Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate,
and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction,
and many there be which go in thereat:
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Beware of false prophets,
 which come to you in sheep's clothing,
 but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
(Matt. 7:13-15)


Ecumenical evangelical preacher Billy Graham meets
with Pope John Paul II in 1993[1] 

“I am far more tolerant of other kinds of Christians than I once was. My contact with Catholic, Lutheran and other leaders—people far removed from my own Southern Baptist tradition—has helped me, hopefully, to move in the right direction. I’ve found that my beliefs are essentially the same as those of orthodox Roman Catholics, for instance….”
~Billy Graham [2]


“500 years are enough.”
~Pope Francis*

From Broad Way Billy . . .
Just as Pope John Paul II was the catalyst for the current ecumenical movement, evangelist Billy Graham was the inspiration behind many leading evangelical leaders flocking to Rome today in ecumenical solidarity.

In his book, On the Edge of Apostasy: The Evangelical Romance with Rome, Robert M. Zins quotes Billy Graham, who was asked by a Christianity Today reporter in 1981 what the most significant changes in the Church were the previous 25 years:

…the new understanding between Roman Catholics and Protestants. Twenty-five years ago we could hardly speak with each other openly. In Crusades today, thousands of Catholics feel free to attend. I have preached in Roman Catholic schools and have received honorary doctorates from them. This could not have happened twenty-five years ago.[3][bold added]

Zins commented on Graham’s unbiblical ecumenical stance and tragically impotent gospel:

How is it that the apostle Paul had a death sentence upon his head when he spoke the Gospel to the Jewish community, and Mr. Graham receives honorary degrees? Could it be the message? We have no doubt that it is. Somewhere early on Mr. Graham lost it, and there is not one indication today that he has retrieved the cutting edge of the Gospel.[4][bold added]

Resetting the Reformation: Part 3

Part 1: TOGETHER 2016: Unbiblical Unity on the National Mall

Part 2: Betraying the Reformers - Betraying the Gospel


“And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God…. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.”
(Rev. 21:1, 27)


Ecumenical evangelical James Robison gives a "high five"
to Pope Francis at the Vatican on June 24, 2014[1]

I believe there is an important spiritual awakening beginning in the hearts of those truly committed to Christ in the Protestant and Catholic communities. Is it possible that Pope Francis may prove to be an answer not only to the prayers of Catholics, but also those known as Protestants?
~ Ecumenical Televangelist, James Robison[2]


By Gaylene Goodroad 

What many zealous proponents of ecumenical unity—like the Together 2016 organizers and participants—neglect to realize, is that this unholy alliance is a necessary step in completing Rome’s ungodly interreligious bridge to one world unification—under the authority of the Pope himself. Without question, the Evangelical change agents involved in this ungodly endeavor, who are leading their own enormous flocks and Internet audience into apostasy, all look to the Roman Pontiff for direction, approval, and affirmation.

Has Roman Catholic doctrine changed since the Middle Ages?[3] Do Evangelicals and Catholics really share “the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 1:3)? This post will shed important light on these questions as well as reveal the Pope’s larger construction project, the Interfaith Bridge to One World Unity.
