Ooberfüse, the Pope and ChristianityToday
By David J. Stewart
James 4:4, “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
Pope Benedict XVI Admits the Power of Music as a Universal Language. Here is the biggest false prophet in the world admitting that music is incredibly powerful, able to convey messages and “arouse emotions otherwise difficult to communicate.”
It is tragic that ChristianityToday, founded by Mr. Ecumenical compromiser himself, Billy Graham, never says a negative word about the Catholic religion, nor the Pope. The following quote is from ChristianityToday (which ought to be renamed to ApostasyToday)...
Pope Benedict XVI recently said that music "is called to infuse hope into the human soul, marked and sometimes injured by its earthly condition. It leads towards the construction of a society open to the ideals of the spirit".
The Catholic UK electro-pop band, Ooberfüse, have produced a record to coincide with his historic visit to the UK.
This unique and uplifting track is entitled Heart’s Cry and will get its worldwide digital release on Sunday. ...
Hal, from Ooberfüse, says : “I think this is the first time in history a reigning Pontiff has embraced the forms of popular culture to advance the Christian message of love and hope. We were overjoyed when members of the Bishops’ Organising Committee decided to dub our track the ‘Youth Anthem’ of the papal visit.”
The Pope has said “over the centuries and the millennia music has always been used to give form to what cannot be expressed in words because it arouses emotions otherwise difficult to communicate”.
It is hoped that the young will draw “new inspiration” from this record “in order to build a world founded on justice and solidarity”.
What a tragedy!!! Why is ChristianityToday promoting a Catholic U.K. heathen pop band, Ooberfüse, who praises the Pope and his apostate message? It is so evil. The German band produced a record, Heart's Cry, as a youth anthem to commemorate the Pope's visit to Europe. Clearly, ChristianityToday is in bed with Catholicism, committing spiritually adultery as the Bible says in James 4:1-4. Judgment Day is coming.
Ooberfüse is a Demonic, New Age, Catholic Band
Here are some of the lyrics from Ooberfüse' song Heart's Cry...
Heart's Cry Lyrics, by Ooberfüse
"As Bishop of Rome and Successor of the Apostle Peter, I reaffirm – like my predecessors – that …hatred will never reign in the hearts of men again"
You’ve got to open your heart wide
To the Love that is inside
Source of life none can resist
Her fatal charms disperse the mist
Of hopelessness and deep despair
Broken wings she will repair
You’ve got to open your heart wide
To the Love that is inside
She is the force of raging passion
Melting hearts with Love’s compassion
Flowing hidden deep inside
Tide of Love
Source of life? Her fatal charms? She is the force? Flowing hidden deep inside? My friend, this is New Age demonic teachings all the way. Ooberfüse is a New World Order band, promoting the New Age Movement. And the Catholic Pope is in the center of the music. AND WORST, ChristianityToday promotes this garbage!!! It is total apostasy! If you haven't realized it yet, ChristianityToday is a false front organization, begun as a vehicle by which to mislead unsuspecting victims into Satan's one-world Luciferian religion.
Music is Being Used to Lead the World into Apostasy!
Don't believe it? Check out the Bible in Daniel's time. Nebuchadnezzar had a statue made of pure gold, an IMAGE, that was 90-feet tall and 9-feet wide. Everyone was commanded to bow and worship Nebuchadnezzar's IMAGE or die immediately. This is exactly what will happen when the Antichrist comes (Revelation 13:15).
The Old Testament tells us that wicked king Nebuchadnezzar set up an golden IMAGE and demanded that everyone worship the IMAGE or be killed...
Daniel 3:5-7, “That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up. And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.”
Carefully notice that Revelation 13:15 tells us that the same thing will happen when the Antichrist comes, i.e., he will demand worship of the IMAGE (just as Nebuchadnezzar did), or else the masses of people will be killed...
Revelation 13:15, “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”
It is very interesting that king Nebuchadnezzar didn't ask the people to worship him directly; but instead, worship an IMAGE. Nebuchadnezzar wanted to be worshipped, but he knew that he was just a man; so he needed an image 90-feet tall of pure gold to magnify himself through the image. The Antichrist will just be a man; but he will magnify himself through an IMAGE that the Bible says will speak and come to life (Revelation 13:15). With this in mind, it begins to make sense why we are seeing occult New Age images all over the place... on buildings, albums, corporations, you name it!
Those who refuse to worship the Beast's IMAGE will be killed, just as Nebuchadnezzar proclaimed death to anyone who didn't bow to worship his IMAGE. This is important to understand, showing us why Satan is using the Masonic pyramid and All-seeing Eye to recruit followers to the New World Order. It is for the same purpose as Nebuchadnezzar's IMAGE.
The people were commanded to begin worshipping the image WHEN THEY HEARD THE MUSIC! That's what Daniel 3:5-7 teaches. Contemporary Christian Music [CCM] and secular worldly music (which are virtually indistinguishable these days), are being used to lead people into apostasy! We see this clearly by Ooberfüse, the Pope and ChristianityToday all uniting in apostasy, in agreement. Instead of exposing the evils of Catholicism (a works-based demonic cult) as Ephesians 5:11 commands; ChristianityToday embraces, promotes and cheers them as if it's all a good thing that's happening. It is evil to the core!
Isn't it amazing how the Pope, singers around the world, New Agers, and people from all walks of life never shut up about love and unity; while millions of people continued to be slaughtered and die in needless wars? The killing and bloodshed will never stop, because men are evil in their hearts. Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” That's why God gave us the Bible, to instruct us and show us who we really are in our hearts. Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
New Age: Force, Feelings and an Experience Instead of God and His Word
We are hearing much heresy these days from Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) singers about “feeling” born-again, or “the born-again experience”; but the Bible teaches something very different. Being born-again is not a feeling, nor an experience; but God keeping His promise to save WHOSOEVER (John 3:16) believes on the name of Jesus.
Ooberfüse sings “She is the force,” clearly revealing their demonic New Age beliefs. ChristianityToday promotes these different groups, linking them together, building a bridge of apostasy between New Age, Catholicism and CCM. In all of this, NO ONE, except God-fearing, Bible-believing, soul-winning, people-loving, caring Christians like me are taking a stand for God, exposing all these villains for what they are... IMPOSTERS!!!
It's for the same purpose as all worldly music today. Daniel 3:5, “That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up.” Everyone was instructed to worship Nebuchadnezzar's image when they heard the music, all kinds of music. The Bible lists all sorts of musical instruments. It wasn't about singing or lyrics, but THE MUSIC.
Likewise, in these Last Days Satan is conditioning the masses of this world to worship the Beast, and the IMAGE of the Beast, through music. The similarities between Nebuchadnezzar's IMAGE and the Antichrist's IMAGE are more than mere coincidental. Satan's methods haven't changed in thousands of years.
Let's go further...
George Harrison of The Beatles sang his hit song, MY SWEET LORD. Christian youth all across the world and America were singing along... My Sweet Lord. But then AT THE END of the song, Harrison deceitfully changed the lyrics to, MY SWEET LORD, HARE KRISHNA!!! Harrison's 1971 song MY SWEET LORD, is a song of praise to the Hindu god, Krishna. In fact, Harrison admits that he did that to trick people.
In his 1982 interview with the Hare Krishna organization George Harrison stated...
"I wanted to show that Hallelujah and Hare Krishna are quite the same thing. I did the voices singing 'Hallelujah' and then the change to 'Hare Krishna' so that people would be chanting the maha-mantra-before they knew what was going on! I had been chanting Hare Krishna for a long time, and this song was a simple idea of how to do a Western pop equivalent of a mantra which repeats over and over again the holy names. I don't feel guilty or bad about it; in fact it saved many a heroin addict's life." [emphasis added]
SOURCE:George Harrison Interview: Hare Krishna Mantra--There's Nothing Higher (1982)
People who would normally be offended by someone praising “Hare Krishna my sweet Lord,” were caught off guard by the way the song was arranged. The listener would follow along with the words “Hallelujah, my sweet Lord” several times before it subtly changed to “Hare Krishna, my sweet Lord.”
By that time the listener had already been mesmerized by the music and the song. George Harrison was an imposter who rejected Jesus Christ, and is burning in the fires of Hell forever because he died in his sins without Jesus Christ. I say this with sadness. 2nd Peter 3:9 declares that “God is not willing for any to perish” in their sins.
Music is leading the religious world into the New World Order. This is plainly evidenced by all the occult imagery on CCM album covers, and the Ecumenical Movement (i.e., let's unite by error, rather than divide over truth). CCM's true colors will come out IN THE END, when the Antichrist appears; just as George Harrison's song MY SWEET LORD, deceived millions of people to worship Hare Krishna of the Hindu religion. You are being deceived my friend. Pope Benedict XVI teaches that people can be saved without any Biblical faith. Why is ChristianityToday praising and promoting him.
The Antichrist will Honor the New Age god of Forces
The truth seems like hate to those who hate the truth. Satan is using music and false religion to prepare people to follow the Antichrist when he comes, who will HONOUR THE GOD OF FORCES...
Daniel 11:38, “But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.”
What an amazing Scripture! The Bible is exactly right about everything. Ooberfüse even sing about the “force” in their song HEART'S CRY, as we saw earlier. New Age denies the existence of a personal God, particular the God of Christianity and the inspired holy Bible. New Age teaches that all life comes from a force of energy, male and female, that guide the universe. In sharp contrast, the Bible teaches only a masculine Godhead (i.e., God the Son, God the Father and the Holy Spirit, Who is repeatedly referred to with the masculine pronoun “He” in the Gospel of John as the Comforter). There is no feminine aspect to the Godhead. There's even a feminist's theology these days that perverts the truth of God's Word, claiming that a feminine side of the Godhead exists. This is New Age doctrine all the way my friend!
In these Last Days, we see massive religious concerts, millions of apostate people praising a god, but they don't know who that god is. Jesus told the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4:22 that she and her people didn't know what they worshipped. And Jesus told her WHY... because God must be worshipped in TRUTH. God is not worshipped in heresy. Smith's concerts are packed with Catholics who worship Mary instead of Jesus.
Every Catholic will lie through their teeth in denial, claiming that they don't worship Mary; but then they pray every Rosary, chanting “Hail Mary” 53 times without mentioning the name of Jesus even once. What a bunch of liars! It is more than innocent deception. Jesus said in Mark 7:9 that they FULLY REJECT God's Word.
The Tower of Babel and the New World Order
Picture to left: The Tower of Babel. Satan has been trying to undo what God did at Babel for 6,000 years, and is finally succeeding. This is all in accordance with God's sovereign plan for the universe.
I've researched the Contemporary Christian Music [CCM] crowd and their music, and they're all rubbing shoulders with the sinful world. They're all using corrupt Bibles. They're all doctrinally compromised, prioritizing love and unity over truth and righteousness. Don't you see what is happening... the Devil is bringing the world together without God. Satan is undoing what God did at the Tower of Babel. Whereas God segregated men for their own good, that all men might happily seek the Lord (Acts 17:26-27); Satan is trying desperately to break down all barriers of religion, race and culture today in order to prepare the world to receive and worship the Antichrist when he comes.
God separated men, knowing that if one group went into apostasy, the barriers God set in place would prevent corruption of other peoples, cultures and races. It was a safeguard. If the mother-ship went down, as what happened prior to the flood of Noah's day when all men turned against God, other people's would be safe. God destroyed the world by flood in Genesis 6-7, because the wickedness of mankind had become so great. Not even a few chapters later in Genesis after the flood, we find mankind once more revolting and UNITING against God, and so He scattered humanity and changed their languages and cultures.
All this talk nowadays about breaking down barriers of culture, religion, and national sovereignty is unscriptural. Satan is trying to remove what God set in place, in order to finish what the Devil started at the Tower of Babel. Satan has been trying for 6,000 years to undo what God did at Babel, and he is finally succeeding by the permissive will of God, in accordance with God's prophetic timeline and sovereign plan for the universe. God is still on His throne and always will be. Amen and amen!
They all sell their music for profit and the CCM industry rakes in billions-of-dollars annually. The lyrics are extremely vague and none of their websites tell anyone how to be saved to enter Heaven.
It is self-evident that music will be a big part of Satan's New World Order. Just as millions of fans idolize their favorite Rock stars these days, so will the masses of society idolize and worship the Antichrist when he comes; who may very well be a Rock star, such as Bono from U2 (who is a member of the CFR and has worldwide influence). If 11,000,000 Americans will buy Marilyn Manson's garbage, then they'll certainly follow the Antichrist when he comes.
The quote I gave you at the beginning of this article from ChristianityToday concerning the band Ooberfüse and the Pope tells us that time is running out. The Lord's return is nearer than ever before. Pope Benedict XVI stated concerning music: “It leads towards the construction of a society open to the ideals of the spirit.” The Pope is openly admitting that today's music, secular and Contemporary Christian Music, is being used as a tool to construct a society. Don't miss the word “construct” (as in Tower of Babel).
While many believers are being doctrinally blown about by every wind of doctrine (Ephesians 4:14); Satan is using music of all forms to lead people away from God, and into a one-world religion, a one-world system, a New World Order. Ephesians 4:14 gives us the remedy. Ephesians 4:14, “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.” Please read that Bible verse several times, because people are missing this. Notice that false prophets use “cunning craftiness” to “lie in wait to deceive.” This verse is warning you about false prophets like Max Lucado, TobyMac, Michael W. Smith, Rick Warren, Pat Robertson, Benny Hinn, et cetera. They are all deceivers!
ChristianityToday promotes Catholic events, news and music; when they ought to be taking a Biblical stand against false religions and the man of sin himself, the Pope. Ooberfüse is a Catholic band; they are serving the Devil. The Pope has openly stated that people can go to Heaven without Biblical faith. The Catholic Church teaches works salvation, that the Bible says is a road straight to damnation in Hell (Romans 3:20; Mark 7:6-13; Romans 10:3-4; Titus 1:10-13).
The Christian life is not a playground, it's a battleground.
