For years I have spoken about the folly of our nation giving away its sovereignty. I ask why, if we want to be ruled by foreigners, as we are in the European Union, we bothered to fight two world wars for our freedom? As it is, we are part of an undemocratic megastate run for the benefit of Germany, a nation which has done very well out of its evil past.
If you want to see where anti-Semitism leads, go to Israel's extraordinary Holocaust Museum where a a moving memorial shows in great detail how the Germans destroyed six million people whose crime was their Jewishness.
Israel's leader Benjamin Netanyahu was there this week when all of us in Israel stood in silence for two minutes in memory of the dead- and he made some telling comments.
Pat and I have been journalists and authors for about 50 years, and started reporting when the world was relatively sane, but already on the dizzying descent to today's shambles. This was in the 60s, when the spiritual mood changed. We usually only watch old films, as the modern ones are often vile, loaded with sexual content, blasphemy and the occult. You can tell from the soundtrack music that around 1962 the tone changed. The mood music was different, the content coarser. Now this music has risen to a crescendo.
We celebrated Passover last night in Israel and for those who do not know what this is, I will tell you. We sang songs, we had nice food, the children had a wonderful time, and it was all to remember one night in the history of the world when God gave freedom to a nation of slaves.
Lots of people are scared of Islam. They needn't be. Islam will shortly be removed as a force in the world. How do I know? From Bible prophecy on the fate of the Arab nations around Israel - see Psalm 83 for starters. I gave a talk on this at our church, called "What in the world is going on?" As we move into a new year, watch Iran, Russia and Israel. ALAN FRANKLIN
Europe is being prepared for a one continent government with one leader: Antichrist. The second most important prophetic development of the last century – after the rebirth of Israel – was the creation of The European Union.The continent is in turmoil. The nations of the European Union are facing an influx of immigrants unseen since the end of the Second World War. Hundreds were filmed attacking Hungarian border guards while screaming “allahu akbar” which in Arabic means “god is great”.
A beautiful new book for children is out telling the Bible stories in the books of Ruth and Esther. I used it last week in Sunday School to tell the exciting story related in the Book of Esther, and the kids were riveted! For my next turn I will do the other half of the book - the romantic and moving story of Ruth.
One of the most inspiring lessons we did in Sunday School was on the New Jerusalem, the spectacular golden city. "Wow" does not begin to describe that city! You will find the golden city in the Book of Revelation chapter 21. I told the kids we would make the golden city, and they were so excited to join in our project.
We have just updated our wills, which made me realize that God has actually written a will as well, leaving matchless wonders for those who inherit. God's will is in the Bible, of course, and we have no excuse if we do not get in on His great inheritance.
If someone really harms us in some way, the last thing we want to do is forgive that person. But that is exactly what Jesus tells us to do. If you do manage to forgive someone, wow, hang on to your hat, because it may well be the start of an adventure! Here are some 'adventures in forgiveness'...
Today we celebrate the most outstanding event in world history, and also the most authenticated. Over 500 eye witnesses, as well as the apostles, met with the risen Jesus after His crucifixion. Even the religious leaders of His day, who caused Him to be put to death, could not deny the fact of the empty tomb.
In the following article Bill Federer, American historian and author, examines the reasons behind muslim violence. The answers are found in the 'holy books' of Islam, which reveal the bloody history of this religion and the clear commands of Muhammad to fight and kill those who do not accept Islam. Bill has written a book called:"What Every American Needs to Know about the Quran: A History of Islam and the United States."
As we approach Resurrection Sunday we should remind ourselves (Christians should need no reminder) of the significance of this season. Along with the virgin birth, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ form the cornerstone of the Christian faith. Indeed, the resurrection of Jesus separates Christianity from all the world's religions.
This is what reader Martin Horan of Perth wrote of our book, Goodbye America, Goodbye Britain: "This book's unique in this genre because it's written by scrupulously objective journalists. The facts are there in abundance. You couldn't squeeze a fag paper through the logic. I hate this word but "Goodbye America, Goodbye Britain" really is - sensational! It shouldn't be but it is sensational solely because we no longer have journalists of this calibre - men and women who know and understand history and its relation to the present times.
In the face of continuing Islamic atrociities around the world, from Europe to Africa, the Middle East to the USA, it is time for our leaders to admit that Islam is a rogue religion, not fit for purpose in the modern world, a religion that must be exposed for what it is: a religion of intolerance, hatred and violence. Not all Muslims are terrorists - but virtually all terrorists are Islamic!
America’s next president looks like being a choice between Jezebel and the casino king. He has his mother's old Bible you know. I'm impressed. (That is British irony.) Here’s a wonderful quote a well known American Christian broadcaster just e-mailed me: “It is difficult to face the prospect of having to choose between a super-liberal arrogant woman who believes she is above the law and a man who is an ego-maniacal, sewer-mouth, demagogue!"
Here's a snippet of Tony's last written words:“And so my time to depart draws near, as the doctors have informed me that the cancers invading my body are inoperable and incurable, unless my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ decides otherwise! Looking back over my life, I cringe with embarrassment." So how could this remarkable man be so at peace as he waited for death in a hospice? Because he knew where he was going, unlike most people who sadly die in a state of fear and worry.
There is a teaching going around that it is bad to give an altar call and that it is wrong, and even evil, to ask people to make a decision to accept the Lord Jesus as their Saviour. I put this to Dr Arnold Fruchtenbaum, the Jewish Bible teacher. He responded with scripture, saying: “Choose this day whom you will serve!” Indeed. (Here we also look again at the hideous heritage of the monster called Calvin- AF)
This week a former Bank of England governor, Mervyn King, joined those of us giving urgent warnings about the coming ultimate financial crash. He said this, in The Sunday Telegraph: "The world is on the cusp of another crash because regulators have failed in their attempts to reform the financial system in the wake of the last crisis. Another crisis is certain, and the failure…to tackle the disequilibrium in the world economy makes it likely that it will come sooner rather than later.” Quite. So what should Christians do to prepare financially and spiritually?
“See you later!” These words were spoken by the lady next to me as we filed past a coffin containing the body of Vera Crofts. Vera was not really in that coffin. The lady next to me knew exactly where Vera was, and that there would be a reunion.
Pilgrim William Bradford wrote of a ship returning to England in 1625 with beaver skins to trade for supplies:
"They...were well within the England channel, almost in sight of Plymouth. But...there she was unhapply taken by a Turkish man-of-war and carried off to Morocco where the captain and crew were made slaves." Islamic pirates carried over a million Europeans off to slavery in Africa- a little known fact of history.
We learned a Jewish Passover song in Hebrew at Sunday School this week, and it was so much fun! There were only two in the class, brothers aged 9 and 10, and they caught on right away and just loved it. And at coffee time, several people gathered round and also wanted to learn this wonderful song. I heard it last year in Israel at Passover, and it thrilled my heart to the point where I could hardly stop singing it for the rest of the year!
UFOs – Alan always said investigating this subject was like trying to nail jelly. Well, now someone has succeeded in nailing the jelly! If you want the whole truth on flying saucers and aliens, you will find it in Gary Bates’ fascinating book, "Alien Intrusion."
A witty new booklet refuting evolution has just been published in Israel by our son-in-law, Michael Nissim. The 26-page booklet is entitled “No Bears and No Forest!”, which is a Hebrew expression used when someone is speaking a load of nonsense.
Greetings to all our readers round the world! We especially welcome the growing number of readers in China, the world’s most populous nation. Pat and I will always try to give you accurate information about events of interest in these End Times - times of great prophetic significance. We have one advantage: we are no longer employed by major media groups and are free to say whatever we think is true and relevant. Therefore, our only “agenda” is to tell the truth, a wonderful freedom for us.
Jerusalem is at the heart of Israel. It is also the spiritual world center where the Lord Jesus Christ will soon return to rule and reign. Interestingly, it is also in an area which is roughly the geographical center of the world. So when the world focuses on this city, and everything that happens in the Middle East lines up with Bible prophecy, it's time to wake up and take note!
God has erected a great big billboard on the southern flank of England, and the message on the billboard is this: ‘The Bible is true. The Flood of Noah really happened. Here is the evidence.’ God’s big billboard is known as the White Cliffs of Dover.
We know the holiday season so well, but how many know about the amazing holiday system God set up in the Bible? It is set out in the Old Testament, an annual cycle of seven feasts. This meant nothing much to me until I realized that those seven holidays were prophetic – in other words, that the feasts themselves were prophecies of future events. The exciting thing is that the first four feasts have already been fulfilled in history, and the last three are still to be fulfilled, possibly in the near future. The last three feasts tell us what is coming down the pike, and wow, now, right now, today, is the time to get ready, for when the next feast is fulfilled, the fifth one, there will be no time at all to do anything. Please read on and find out about the stupendous event which will suddenly be upon us, a defining moment in the history of the world. (More of Pat's insights are found in our two latest books.)
We get some perceptive e-mails from readers round the world. Here's one just received about the unholy mess called Christmas.
It's that time of year again! Here is a Christmas Quiz for all our readers. See how many of these questions you can get right!
Nothing good comes out of the sad event we call "Christmas." I recall our days as reporters covering crime and courts, including divorce courts. The list of rows, fights, disputes and general mayhem sparked by this event was long. I remember it well, every year. Christmas is bringing the world into the church when we have to do the exact opposite. Anyone for a Christmas tree festival? At least come for the mince pies....
ALAN writes: Pat often says that, now we have ceased to be a society whose values are Bible-based we are in “the age of unreason.” News item after news item confirms this, with lunacy replacing commonsense in most aspects of British life. For example, Druids have been recognized as a religion in (Once) Great Britain and are to get charitable status. And if anyone wonders why many of our police are basically useless, it could have something to do with the fact that 500 of them are officially pagans, with the right to take days off to perform rituals, such as leaving food out for the dead, dressing up as ghosts and casting spells.
The star of Bethlehem has always intrigued people. What was it? Could it have been a comet or a meteor or a super-nova? What about a special alignment of planets? Here one of America's top prophecy teachers considers the Christmas star. Lamb and Lion Ministries is highly recommended by us and we have a link to it on this site - see links. This is just a taster for Dr Reagan's work. His satellite TV program Christ in Prophecy is on Daystar and other networks and is well worth recording.
Peter Brandon has gone home! He is now with the Lord Jesus Christ and we do not doubt that his entrance into the heavenly realm was glorious.
December. Here we are again. You just can't escape it. A woman in a shop once turned to me and said: 'I hate Christmas. I have to buy TWENTY presents!'
The world is at last seeing the true face of Islam. And still our leaders pretend that it is a ‘peaceful religion.’ Yes, most muslims are not bloodthirsty monsters, but it is their religion itself that is at the bottom of the recent atrocities. Islam itself, the Koran itself, supports what the monsters are doing, despite what the imams say. Mohammed and the Koran command that infidels (Jews and Christians) be fought and destroyed. They are obeying the dictates of Islam.
What should you tell your kids about 'Santa'? I told our daughter Annie the truth when she was about four years old and she seems to have survived the experience. Take heart, dear parents, and start being honest with your kids! It's not going to kill them, and God will honour it. We are making fools of ourselves and duping our children, causing them to believe a lie. It's time we all grew up. Please read on and see what happened when Annie asked me if 'Santa' was real.
Dear friends, Thank you for praying for William, a father of four in England who needed a miracle. The hospital called his family in to say goodbye...but the Lord Jesus has answered all the prayers and has done the miracle!
The way to dispel darkness is with light. The way to defeat lies is with truth. The way to defeat hatred is with love. Dropping bombs will never defeat a philosophy based on darkness and hatred. Dropping bombs might do some good in the short term, but the people we drop them on are enslaved by an evil philosophy, Islam. We need to switch on the light and help them understand why it is wrong and why Jesus is the only answer.
Says Terry: This book gets to the heart of the false teaching and false prophecy being perpetrated on the naive and gullible. The Franklins expose the cults and isms of these strange, troubling times with a no-nonsense, non-politically correct dissection and analysis of the dark forces that seek to lead mankind from the way that leads through the narrow gate of salvation, striving, rather, to herd humanity down the broad road that leads to destruction.
ALAN FRANKLIN writes: As we move deeper into the times of the birth pangs leading up to the return of the Lord Jesus, as detailed by the Lord himself in Matthew 24, the world is watching as “unusual events” occur with increasing frequency. Prophecy students generally agree that America is nowhere in Bible prophecy. So how will the USA vanish from the scene, or lose so much power that it ceases to be a world player?
America is not in Bible prophecy. Many people twist and turn to find it but in my opinion it is not there. Therefore, it has been removed or downgraded to such an extent it ceases to matter on the world stage. I write this as a friend of the USA and an observer of its fast decline since my first visit in 1974, near the end of its golden age. As Christianity has been removed as a major influence on the young and society at large, so the troubles have mounted.
There's a media myth that there are "Islamic extremists" and "moderate Islamics." The only reason most Muslims don't run around attacking infidels is that they don't bother to read the words of Mohammed - or they don't take them seriously. Those that do set out to impose their brutal rule on the world. This summary is from The Berean Call.
Alan Franklin adapted this story from The Jerusalem Connection.
The turmoil across the Middle East is ultimately going to lead to the fulfillment of Psalm 83, in which a named group of nations immediately around Israel join together – for the first time in history – to eradicate the Jewish state. They fail. God wins. Allah loses, showing yet again that the Islamic god is false.
The majority of what are deemed "churches" are really either empty shells, utterly wrong theologically or following New Age trends, "success orientated" preaching and much else that is wrong. Another big problem is that even well-meaning pastors are not taught prophecy in their theological colleges, so are unable to understand it themselves, despite the fact that nearly a third of the Bible was prophetic when it was written. Alan suggest some solutions if you are in such a church.
‘The defence of this town comes first; we need every able-bodied man.’ The words of young Islamics facing ISIS? No, those were the words of Captain Mainwaring in one episode of the BBC comedy series ‘Dad’s Army’. Like all great comedy, it has elements of truth in it.
This is the story of a man who struck a bargain with Satan, the bargain of his life - and it was nearly the bargain of his death! Steve Avery offered the use of his right arm in return for £25,000. He lived to regret his bargain, but Satan got the use of his arm.
This Sunday, November 15, I am speaking in Alfreton, Derbyshire, at the morning and evening services of The Watchorn Church (Methodist Church) in Derby Road, DE55 7AQ. My talks will range from Creation to prophecy! The following week-end I start in Marlow, Bucks, on Friday then have two speaking dates in Bournemouth, Dorset, on the Saturday and Sunday.
Do many Mormons really wear magic underwear? Why do most Jehovah’s Witnesses never take communion? Why do Seventh Day Adventists think that Sunday worship is the Mark of the Beast? Why does Islam teach that the only sure way to Heaven is to kill Jews and Christians? Why do Catholics never learn that Jesus clearly forbade the worship of His mother? Why do freemasons think they will be at the Great White Throne, when it is the judgement of the damned? You will learn the truth about all this and much, much more in our book, 'Cults and Isms: True or False?' This is a cults book with a difference, with eight color pages of pictures and our personal experiences of New Age/psychic activities - and why you should avoid them like the plague!
I thought I'd better have a look at your book and DVD offer: "CULTS AND ISMS". A bargain at £10.00.....I couldn't refuse! The DVD was an excellent introduction to the false religions/beliefs that are on the increase today. What I find disturbing is that these religions (particularly Islam) are promoted with great veracity whilst the good old Church of England sits back and watches its numbers dwindle. I'm currently studying "Apologetics" as part of my Theology degree and it's amazing how few Christians have even a basic grasp of how to defend the Christian faith (1 Peter 3:15). My local vicar is contacting the C of E hierarchy to see if they run a course on this subject....I'm convinced that Islam, Jehovah's Witnesses, 7th Day Adventist et al all have very good training courses for their disciples!
Hello dear friends! We (Alan and Pat Franklin) want to call your attention to our Table of Truth feature on the top left of this website. Table of Truth II features Islam versus the Bible, and we encourage you to print copies out to give away so that people will have the facts. Feel free to copy and email it, as long as this website is mentioned. We also have an improved ‘Print’ feature so that you when you print off our articles they will now fill the whole page of the paper. All our Tables of Truth appear in Cults And Isms; True Or False? which you can buy from our webshop.
Being critical and “judgmental” is sometimes necessary but not in the spirit of the age. Especially when you criticize a powerful if evil institution like the Roman Catholic (false) Church, which we do at every opportunity. So when we get an e-mail like the one that follows it is encouraging - and shows that what we do may not be popular, but it is necessary. It is from an Anglican worship leader who recognizes the folly of linking with the RCs, whose Queen of Heaven deity is straight out of Babylon - and the pits of hell.
We like getting readers' e-mails and they often tell of church problems. What do you do when you have to leave a church because of false teaching? It's quite common: we have parted company from several churches. Here's my response.
The Bible tells us that as we move into the end times the whole world will move against Israel in a bid to wrest Jerusalem from the Jews. What you are seeing right now is Bible prophecy coming true in the news headlines. There is no rational reason to hate Jews: it is entirely supernatural in origin, as Satan is vain enough to think that by persuading the gullible to kill all Jews - as Islam demands – he can prevent the second advent of the Lord Jesus Christ, a key element of scripture almost totally neglected in today’s churches.
Ali Sina is an Iranian ex-Muslim. In his latest book he posits that Muhammad was a narcissist, a paedophile, a mass murderer, a terrorist, a misogynist, a lecher, a cult leader, a madman, a rapist, a torturer, an assassin and a looter. Sina has offered 50,000 dollars for the one who can prove otherwise. Nobody has claimed the reward as yet. And no wonder, as the description is based on the Islamic texts themselves, such as the hadiths, the descriptions of Muhammad’s life from testimonies of contemporaries.
Open letter to our Conservative government in Britain: You stated before the May election that Sunday trading laws would not change. Here we are four months later and you are making noises about possibly changing them, asking in a survey for people's opinions ! How about God's opinion?
Refugees? Yes, but among them there are a great number of young, able-bodied muslim men. Surely they should be staying and fighting – not turning tail and running to the West ! The men in our town would stand and fight – not run and demand asylum. In World War Two the refugees were women, children and old people – not young, fit men. The men were fighting, not hoping for a better life somewhere else.
Have you seen how world stock markets are wildly gyrating? One day is a day of disaster, with the screens all flashing red and dealers sell, sell, sell! Then a nation like the USA or China pumps some more "liquidity" into the system and suddely blue skies are here again and all is well. The screens turn green. Unfortunately, it's not that simple. We are heading for the Greater Depression I have been predicting since 2006.
Pat and I wrote our book exposing the cults and false faiths deceiving the world because we couldn’t find a good cults expose book to recommend. As young Christians we found J. Oswald Chambers’ 1969 book on the subject invaluable, but it became difficult to find and in need of updating. So we started from the beginning, did our own research – and that’s how our Cults and Isms book came into being. It was not a labor of love, but we felt it was necessary.
The media in Britain is going big on the deaths of two famous people, a male actor and a female singer/TV presenter. They are portrayed as such all round great people, but I wonder where they are now? The media doesn't mention that, but Jesus did. He said that unless a man is born again, he cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. (John 3:3)
The Berean Call, which provides news items to our Christian news spot, has reported on the latest abomination to come from what passes for “The Church of England.” It’s not so much a church as a national disgrace as there is now a proposition before the General Synod – the ruling body of the church – to rebaptise those who are foolish enough to think you can “change sex” – a biological impossibility. Baptism is also for true believers who have repented, of course - so that rules out "transgenders."
This Thursday evening, August 6, I am speaking in Swindon, Wilts, on “The Middle East in Bible Prophecy.” Anyone who wonders whether there will ever be peace in the Middle East should understand that this will only happen when the Prince of Peace returns in glory to rule and reign from Jerusalem– the coming capital of the world. The venue is The Storehouse Christian Fellowship, Swindon Road, Stratton St Margaret, Swindon, SN3 4PT.
Will Antichrist be Islamic? Not a chance! On Saturday, July 4, I am speaking in London on The EU In Bible Prophecy and The Rise of Israel and the Fall of the United Kingdom: full details of the venue and times are at the end of this item. So here is a quick summary of why scripture clearly indicates that we will shortly have a Roman Man Of Sin.
A reader who read our friend Colin’s article on what happens after we die thought we had tied ourselves in knots about the Pre-Tribulation Rapture, which we think is the true Scriptural position. No, not so. To clear up any confusion, here is the reader’s question and Colin’s reply.
The truth is not what most people want to hear, of course. They often think that when they die, if they have been “a good person,” they go to Heaven, where they will meet their old buddies.
What happens after we die should be a question we all want answered. After all, one in one of us dies..... do we go to Heaven, Hades, oblivion or have a "soul sleep" under that nice churchyard tree?The place to look for answers is The Bible and here is an outline of a sermon I preached at Tongham Christian Fellowship. It dovetails well with Colin's article above.
An important book is out this week in Israel . It is the Hebrew version of "Footsteps of The Messiah" by Dr. Arnold Fructenbaum, translated from the English by our son in law, Michael Nissim.
The Irish Republic voted for "same sex marriage," whatever that really means, by a large majority. Was I surprised? No. Do I think the worldwide situation is fast getting worse? Yes, the choice was always "Christ or chaos." We have chosen chaos so had better enjoy the rotten fruits we see all around us!
As the world gets ever darker and more desperate for change, what are the predictions? Well, change is coming! The only 100 per cent accurate prophecies are in the Bible and these point to tumultuous events in the fairly near future. In 2015? We don't know. But we do know, from many passages like Matthew 24, what to expect as the time draws close for the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. We set all this out in our book, Goodbye America, Goodbye Britain. These are the times of the signs.
Christian bakers in Northern Ireland, who refused to make a cake promoting "homosexual marriage," have been found guilty of "discrimination." Judge Brownlie said that the Ashers Baking Company's owners, the McArthur family, "broke political and sexual orientation laws."
Gulf Leaders met with Obama at Camp David this week to express worries about Iran's troublemaking. Obama says he understands their concern about a nuclear-armed Iran sparking a nuclear arms race in the region. The situation is serious and getting worse daily, as Yemen is really a proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile Iran, which has powerful armed forces, has sent a warship into Yemeni waters to escort a ship allegedly carrying "humanitarian supplies."
Are you in trouble today? Have you got a nagging problem or worry? Must be time to pray!
It is amazing how gullible Christians wax lyrical over something called The Alpha Course, the Christianity-lite, judgment-less parody of Scripture. Alpha fails in every respect, from its claims to be teaching thousands about Jesus Christ to the idea that somehow it has revitalized the moldering carcass that is the Anglican so-called "church" a Laodicean mess if ever there was one. The biggest, most disgusting failure lies in its warm embrace of the Catholic whore church, which has a whole team of false teachers promoting Alpha.
I just love Dr J Vernon McGee, who is now with the Lord, and often listen to his Through the Bible teachings on an MP3 (little Walkman device). His whole five year Bible study is on the web and can be downloaded free. Today he got to John 6, a WOW chapter if there ever was one! My favourite verse is 47, but wait a minute. Dr McGee looks at verse 37 here. Election or free will? Can we really choose to come to the Lord Jesus and be saved? God chooses us, but can we choose Him? Read on for Dr McGee's take on verse 37.
Obama, the evil "leader" illegally occupying The White House, has given some typically arrogant and wrong-headed advice to Britain: he wants us to stay in the EU. I suggest the community-organizer-in-chief minds his own business over Britain and Europe. He has problems enough of his own, none of which he is likely to solve, and they will get worse this year. Goodbye America! (The book Pat and I wrote on this subject, titled Goodbye America, Goodbye Britain is available from our web shop, top left on this page.)
Seismic changes are taking place in the Middle East. A vacuum is being created and ISIS is stepping in to fill it. Israeli Prime Minister Banjamin Netanyahu told US senators and congressmen that to defeat ISIS and let Iran have nuclear weapons would be to win the battle, but lose the war.
Surprise, surprise. Science has once again validated the Bible. DNA from 69 ancient skeletons reveals that 4500 years ago there was ‘massive migration’ into Europe, bringing the Indo European languages – all coming from the East. Well, well, well. Anyone who believes that Genesis is literal history could have told you that!
God’s judgement is sure to fall on both Britain and America, just as it fell on Judah when the Babylonians invaded the land – that was the clear message brought by Jacob Prasch at a conference this weekend in England.
What’s going on in the world? Prophecy and current events indicate that these are the "times of the signs" .You’re watching history being made and prophecy fulfilled. Throughout Europe, the Middle East and North Africa it’s as if a great beast is stirring. This year will get ever more "interesting" and many of the events will have prophetic significance.
Dec 25, 2014. Our "not Christmas" was a lovely day, a jolly day; I almost want to say a holy day, because we were with some of God's people and it was so enjoyable.
Why did Pat and I spend months researching and writing our latest book on Cults and Isms? Here’s why: in response to readers’ requests, like this one from a street evangelist: The reason I'm contacting you is to say how helpful the tables of truth are and to see if you can produce a couple more. I do a lot of street evangelism and constantly come into contact with Muslims and Catholics, but also Jehovas Witnesses and Mormons. My question is, can you produce tables of truth for the latter two? I know it is cheeky and maybe I should do it myself but I think you would do a better job!
When we were In Jerusalem, an Arab taxi driver wanted to take us to Bethlehem. We refused. He was even more surprised that, not only would we never go there, but we don't celebrate the pagan festival called "Christmas" , which might as well be called "Christless." We were also surprised to find that the Lord wasn't really a Jew, as we had always supposed.....(!) - see second footnote.
Geert Wilders, the far-sighted and courageous Dutch politician who sees Islam for the threat to civilization that it truly is, said this: “Israel is the lighthouse and the only democracy in this backward and dictatorial part of the world (The Middle East.) Israel is very close to us, to our European identity. Israel fights our war.” In other words, if Islam is not stopped on Israel’s borders, the next stop on its planned world conquest would be western Europe - closely followed by the USA. But this will not happen, as I have written in previous articles. Islam is doomed, as are all nations and people who attack Israel - ALAN FRANKLIN.
This superb summary of the Middle East mess is by Ron Prosor, Israel's UN Ambassador. Here is one key paragraph: Mr. President, Our conflict was never about the establishment of a Palestinian state. It has always been about the existence of the Jewish state. Sixty seven years ago, on November 29, 1947, the United Nations voted to partition the land into Jewish state and Arab states. Simple. The Jews said yes. The Arabs said no. But they didn’t just say no. Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Lebanon launched a war of annihilation against our newborn state.
Israel is the most attacked, beleaguered nation in the world with constant efforts made to kill its citizens and even wipe it off the face of the earth. Israel is too nice. It puts up with all kinds of nonsense that its enemies wouldn't tolerate for a minute. For example, mosques are built all over Israel. Muslim nations tolerate not only no synagogues but also no Jews, in almost all cases! This article sets out what the Jewish nation SHOULD do. AF.
When I give talks one of my little jokes is that the “Ignorant Brethren” are the largest denomination, a play on words taken from Paul's comment: "I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren." Indeed, the Lord wouldn’t have His people ignorant! Below we publish the preface to our best-selling book Goodbye America, Goodbye Britain. It describes how the world is heading at fast forward towards the rule of Antichrist, the one world government and the New World Order.
You can now buy this book and our companion title Cults and Isms: True or False? for a combined price, including postage, of just £10. The cults book explains why we do NOT “all pray to the same god.” And why with some cults, the word pray is spelled “prey.” Read the introduction and then turn to our web shop for more details.
Israel is the ONLY country in the Middle East where Christians are safe and their numbers increasing. Elsewhere they face everything from abuse to death. Now a Greek Orthodox priest has told the United Nations this fact. This story is from Jerusalem Connection: email@example.com
The truth about Israel is seldom told in the media. Here "Carlos" tells some of the real story....The so-called "Palestinians" who have been firing rockets from Gaza have never said they will stop if Israel withdraws from the West Bank. They have vowed to continue until they have obliterated the "Zionist entity" and have "reclaimed their land," by which they mean every acre from the river to the sea. This is what they say, even in their children’s TV programs, and I believe them.
I am putting this article, written in November 2013, back near the top of our website. It gives some perspective on daily life in Israel where, as I write now (August 25, 2014) rockets have been fired into northern Israel from both Syria and Lebanon. This is what our family and many thousands of other Israeli families have to constantly put up with. Because they are Jews. Islam instructs its followers to kill Jews. FACT! Time to wake up, world. Mohammed was a blood-soaked mass murderer and his true followers have this as their example. He also married a six year old girl so you can see how Islamics regard woman of all ages......No, we do NOT all follow the same god. See our book Cults and Isms, True or False? available from our web shop.
God's book, the Bible, tells us exactly what will be the ultimate fate of the Gaza strip. Please read and discover what is going to happen to Gaza....
A unilateral withdrawal from Gaza imposes no commitments on Hamas - commitments which they would not keep anyway. The goal of Hamas and its affiliate terrorist organizations is the destruction ofIsrael. Nothing short of that will satisfy them. Accommodation by Hamas, and promises, if made, would be for the sole purpose of deceiving Israel and attempting to lull it into relaxing its guard to give Hamas an opportunity to carry out additional attacks.
It is the end of the 23rd day of Operation Protective Shield. As of writing, 56 Israeli soldiers have been killed and several times that number have been wounded. The government is being pressured from within and from without, by those who want an all-out victory and those who want an immediate cease-fire and withdrawal.
Children in Ghana were dying in furnaces at the behest of witch doctors – but now a gospel charity is saving many from a fiery death!
As long as there is ignorance of Israel's right to exist, wars like the present one will continue. When religious fanaticism, having no bearing upon historic reality, continues to exist among members of the Hamas upper echelon, the fighting will continue. When entire populations are taught from childhood on to believe the claims of Islamists, that world domination will come about by conquest and subjection to Islam, the bloodshed will continue. As long as the people in Gaza are encouraged to exalt death over life, many more will needlessly lose their lives.
Big media is both biased and ignorant, particularly about Israel. Here are all the facts you need to back Israel in any debate. Get blogging with the facts that the world doesn't know, like these: Israel became a nation in 1312 BC, two thousand (2000) years before the rise of Islam. Arab refugees in Israel only began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel. Until then references to "Palestinians" meant Jews.
Veggie Tales: "Throw them away." Israel? "It’s about time for David and Goliath Part II." Just a few insights from our Sunday morning service. Nobody was bored, that's for sure!
At 2 minutes before 3:00 p.m., Israel time, after 5 hours of a halt in the fighting at the request of the U.N. for "humanitarian reasons”, Hamas immediately thereafter sent a barrage of missiles into residential communities. The IDF responded and it’s been like that all day.
Israel, one of the world’s smallest nations, is never far from the eye of the storm. When that storm rages round the Middle East, Israel is usually at its epicentre. Ancient predictions about attacks on Israel by surrounding nations are fast becoming imminent events. These are the Bible's prophecies unfolding in today's headlines, for those with eyes to see.
"Operation Solid Rock" gets under way; Netanyahu tells the IDF to "take off the gloves"; the Israeli Air Force strikes at military targets in Gaza; rockets continue to be launched into populated areas throughout the south; classes, examinations, summer camps and various activities within 25 miles from Gaza were cancelled; a rocket explodes in Jerusalem; sirens sounded in locations in and around and north of Tel-Aviv; two kibbutzim are behind closed doors because of possible terrorist infiltration; attempts at further kidnapping of teens did not succeed.
There is a mood of deep disillusion with all existing political leaders. They have failed and people sense this. The financial situation is worse than it was in 2008, when the great crash we had been predicting for years arrived. Central bankers created money out of thin air to pump up the system - for a time. The time may be short. The world should be on red alert. This is the title of one of my talks in Hastings on Wednesday.
When a nation forsakes God, it slithers downhill fast. The headline above was in The Financial Times on May 29, 2014.The story said: “Prostitutes and drug dealers are set to give Britain a £10bn boost as the country revamps the way it measures its economy.” Is this now “normal,” just like men marrying other men is now classed as “normal” by the deluded, witless men running our country? AF
This is Amrik’s story. He found no peace or satisfaction in his Sikh religion but alternatives seemed to offer no solace either. Then, by one of those “accidents” that sometimes happen when you are searching, he came face to face with the word of God. I met him when I spoke in Halesowen, a town in England’s West Midlands. Amrik came to hear a talk on Bible prophecy as, like many converts, he is eager to learn. I wish more Christians had that zeal! Here is Amrik’s testimony, in his own words. AF.
You can easily tell when a once-fringe party is gaining ground. The main media starts to smear it. So it is with the UK Independence Party, which on Thursday will shake the country with the number of votes it polls in the elections to the European Parliament. I expect the Nigel Farage-led anti-EU group to top the poll.
Do you have a friend who has just had a baby, or has lost a loved one, or a friend who is coming out of the hospital? Start cooking! That is what they do in Israel, and what a blessing it is!
This is the story of how I left the Catholic Church after reading the Catholic Jerusalem Bible and finding out the truth about many things. Please feel free to copy this article and give it to your Catholic friends. More information is in both our books - Cults and Isms: True or False? and Goodbye America, Goodbye Britain. Be armed with the facts!

Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth had somewhat of a problem with the Popes in Rome and with Roman Catholic Spain who were using spiritual power to gain worldly power.We had to fight them off - but we did - over 420 years ago. It seems we must fight that battle all over again. It was "NO POPERY" then and again today. Christina Speight.(Alan Franklin adds: the EU was always an attempt at recreating the Holy Roman Empire, a political union heavily influenced by the Vatican.The last Pope set the EU founders on a fast track to "sainthood.")
I am putting this aryticle back on our website to mark the fact that a bug from the EU has been found in my computer, by an expert brought in to sweep it. Most people in Britain are not aware that the corrupt EU superstate is responsible for such diverse things as fortnightly bin collections, higher electricity bills, home information packs and rules on children of twelve having to sit in car booster seats. The fact is about 80 per cent of our laws come from the sinister superstate of Europe - the one we were told would never happen. Read and absorb this mass of information.
A woman wearing traditional muslim dress stood in front of a Marks and Spencer store in a town in northern England, handing out leaflets calling on shoppers to boycott the store because among its items were a few items from Israel (the only democracy in the Middle East).
The British Government has released a tape recording made in the 1970s to be played to survivors of a nuclear war. The tape was kept at the BBC’s wartime studio at Wood Norton to be played by an engineer, assuming one survived. The message that would have been broadcast to a terror stricken population is as follows.
We are thanking the Lord for the lives of two dear friends in Tennessee who survived a horrific accident in which their car went over the edge of a country road, flipped over, knocked down two telephone poles, slid 150 ft down a steep bank, and ended under the cold water of Watauga Lake. Dr Jim and Debby Pearson would have been a great loss to all the people who love and depend on them and we are so grateful to the Lord that they survived. We first learned of all this when an email arrived from Jim. The subject: 'Miracle'.

The European Union soon-to-be-dictatorship has ruled that all e-mails will be stored and all web sites you visit will be "monitored."
Just so as you know! Big Brother is here and being subsidized by European taxpayers. My friend Derek Bennett, a U.K. Independence Party activist and blogger, sent round this brief memo, so you are all informed. Vote UKIP at the coming Euro elections! PS - Obama is moving fast to stamp out free speech on the internet, despite the wooly words he shrouds his plans in.
We realized years ago that homeopathy was a farce. Now we know that it is occult, a form of magic which claims to be medical, but is demonic. The tragic thing is that some Christians, particularly in the Brethren, believe in homeopathy and use products which not only cannot heal them, but could give demons an inroad into their lives. Please, read on and arm yourself with the facts!
Winston Churchill, one of the wisest men who ever lived, believed the Bible – literally. He stood like a rock against Hitler and tyranny and he stood like a rock against liberal critics of God’s Word, the Bible.
There is a church described in the Bible which had no Christians in it at all ! They were just going through the motions. Jesus was getting ready to vomit them out of His mouth. Are we any different, folks? How do we measure up?
I have been invited to a ladies' charity evening to raise money for a good cause. There will be various fashion and beauty stalls at the evening, which is OK, but among the stalls is one for reiki and another for tarot card reading. Sorry folks, but these are the dark supernatural masquerading as something acceptable. But they are not acceptable to God, and will not do you any good at all.
An Egyptian-born woman whose father died as a martyr for jihad says the West continues to remain ignorant of the threat that Islamic "sharia" law poses to Americans' religious and political freedoms.
Obama is giving up American control of the Internet. Global bodies will control it in future. This means that sites like this one might well disappear. The Internet has been a unique tool, the first time in human history when ordinary people could publish to the whole world. Authoritarian regimes hate the Internet, and it was only the culture of freedom in America which gave it to the world!

Readers will know that I have been warning of the coming great crash – the crash of cash – for over eight years, since we wrote Goodbye America, Goodbye Britain, in 2006. I was in America watching the predicted stock market disaster unfold in 2008 and thought “this is it.” I was wrong. My thesis was right, but I didn’t bargain for the creation of trillions of Dollars and Pounds out of thin air - funny money. This has since kept the rest of the world’s economy afloat. The book is still relevant and available from our web shop: http://www.thefreepressonline.co.uk/shop.
This Sunday, Feb 16, I will be talking in our home church, Tongham Christian Fellowship, sounding the alarm and asking: Is the church emerging - or submerging? As the world falls apart and people look for the leader to solve all problems, Antichrist is awaiting the call. Meanwhile the trumpet of the church sounds an uncertain note. We need watchmen and we need to heed their warnings.This is some of what I will be saying…
The BBC (British Broadcasting Company) is using the Olympics to push the homosexual agenda. On the day of the opening ceremony, I turned on Radio 4, the BBC’s talk radio, and heard the presenter interviewing the Russian games organizer. The hostile line of questioning was this: Are the athletes allowed to protest Russia’s anti-gay laws? Can they protest at the games? Can they protest at their hotels? Are they allowed to verbally protest in interviews? Later I switched on BBC television to catch a few minutes of the opening ceremony. What did I hear in the 30 seconds before I switched off in disgust? ‘President Obama and many other world leaders have stayed away in protest at Russia’s anti-gay laws.’ As my mother would have said: ‘Ughhhhhharghh!’
Joni Eareckson Tada, one of the most beloved women in America, has had her loving little heart trampled on by the Oscar crowd in Hollywood. If the so-called ‘celebs’ who have won Oscars in the past had any integrity at all, they would bring their trophies to a wreckers’ yard and have them crushed en masse like the trash they are.
Most Catholics would hardly know one end of the Bible from another. They do not read it, although a dusty copy may be on their bookshelves, sometimes used for recording births. When they are confronted with actual scriptures, they have two choices. They can accept what the Bible says and leave the false church, which sends millions to hell every year, or they can ignore what scripture says
and just carry on.
“Never forget. There is no such thing as radical Islam. All Islam is radical. There may be Muslims who don’t practice their religion, much like others. The Quran is a book that preaches hate.” So said John Jamason, American patriot. For the first time, Muslim Brotherhood groups and Islamic supremacists have an administration working with them to impose Sharia, the authoritarian system of Islamic oppression, on the U.S. America is fast following Europe in being subjagated to Islamic mores. Alan Franklin introduces a brilliant article on the unreported takeover.
A young man asked me how Christians could campaign. There are many ways we can influence society and bring some light to a dark world - the light of the Lord. This is my e-mail response to him, which is worth bringing to a wider audience. His original question is at the end. AF.

If you check this website by putting in words like "Obama" in our search engine, top right, you will see that ever since I heard of him, I knew that Obama was a fraud. Nobody - NOBODY - spends millions of dollars fighting lawsuits trying to get you to produce a simple document like a birth certificate if they have nothing to hide. Getting a driving licence requires you to produce such a document. Yet the fraud in the White House has got away with bending the constition at every turn, purely because the liberal media fawns on him.
Someone who bought our latest book, 'Cults and Isms: True or False?' just told the bookseller it was : "The best book I have read on such a subject." Here's another e-mail comment: "I gave one to the leader of the Calvary Chapel in Portsmouth and a copy to our friends and we have a copy too. We like the way it compares everything across to the word of God. " With threats to free speech looming from many directions, now is a good time to buy our books and spread them around your friends. Political correctness is being used to clamp down on inconvenient facts, so you need to know Biblical truth!
Expect propaganda from your TV news, not true reporting. The world's main media is so utterly biased that Stalin and Goebbels could not have slanted the agenda more. Alan Franklin, who freelanced for every major newspaper and lots of radio and TV stations in Great Britain, looks at some uncomfortable truths.
In the small fellowship we belong to in England the men take turns leading the services and preaching, as we have no paid pastor (the money goes instead to mission work). This week it was the turn of one of our members who has had a career in banking and finance. Here is part of what he said: ‘We look around us in total despair at the spiritual state of our nation, millions of souls who are at present lost. We as a nation have turned from God, rejected His word and His law…
Dear friends, the Lord has given the Israeli Christians some wonderful praise and worship music. Most of these beautiful songs have never been heard in the West. In Israel in the small fellowship started by our son-in-law Michael and his friends in northern Galilee, we sang in English while they sang in Hebrew and believe it or not, it sounded great! I thought so anyway, and I think the Lord did too. The songbook has 230 songs with sheet music, chords and the English translation. If you would like a copy of the official Israeli Christian songbook, Michael has it on his web shop at http://www.israelunique.com/shop/music/zimrat.htm and he also has the eight CD set so that you can hear the songs sung. The link for that is http://www.israelunique.com/shop/music/fruitofzion.htm
Last summer on a visit to the U.S. one of my sisters said: ‘You should watch Duck Dynasty – it’s hilarious!’ When we got home, I did, and it soon became my favorite program, a reality show following the amazing Robertson family of West Monroe, Louisiana. Now the homosexual lobby in America is after the star, Phil Robertson, one of my favorite people on the planet.
"Today one hypocritical liar after another will mourn the death of Nelson Mandela.

A reader asked about our article on the Catholic Mass, saying: “Where did the idea that Jesus is re-crucified in the Mass come from? I recently read on Catholicanswers.com a statement from Vatican II that says Mass is not a re crucifixion/sacrifice.” Pat, a cradle Catholic until she gave her life to the Lord in 1981, answers in detail……
Early on Thursday morning - at 4 am British time - I am featured on Dave Reagan's Christ in Prophecy program on Daystar, talking about the EU in the End Times. That's now! If you have a Sky box, you can set it to record the program. We record all of Dave's broadcasts as they are all worth keeping. If you miss it, you can get it via the links on this website - we'll tell you more later. Meanwhile, here's Dave's summary of my broadcast, recorded this summer in Dallas.
Israel, God's beloved nation and the only true democracy in the Middle East, is proving its moral superiority to Islam by treating many sick and wounded Syrians who make it across the dangerous border.
Did you know that fossils of ducks, parrots, flamingos, owls, penguins, sandpipers, and other modern birds have been found with dinosaur fossils? Of course you didn’t! It is one of those hidden facts which allow evolutionists to claim that dinos turned into birds. Once again we have those great guys at 'Creation' magazine to thank for this important insider knowledge, which blows the theory of evolution out of the water – yet again.
We are having a family visit in Israel and our 2-year-old grandaughter Mimi is proving a great delight. She was laughing and running through the kitchen when, appropos of nothing, she yelled out: "Daddies are daddies and mommies are mommies!"

Have you heard of the Continental Divide? It is a line that runs down from Alaska, through the Rocky Mountains, and on south to Mexico. Pour a cup of water on one side, it goes into the Pacific. Pour it on the other side, it finishes up in the Atlantic.
Have you discovered Dr J. Vernon McGee and his 'Bible Bus' yet? American Christians have known and loved his radio program, Through the Bible, for decades, but here in Britain few seem to have heard of him. Wow, what a treat they have in store! You can download five years of his radio programs going right through the entire Bible. I choose a few out of the Bible’s 66 books, download them on to an MP3 (Walkman) and listen at all sorts of odd times, day or night, sometimes while driving. What a thrill it is to learn so many exciting things. The link is http://www.ttb.org/contentpages/21793/e63bfac6-600d-436f-8231-5fcadefa77d6/5-YearSeriesinMP3.aspx
In our books we set out to correct error. One of the great errors of the age is that we – Christians and in fact all decent people – have to tolerate almost anything, from rampant perversion, sick TV shows, sex education for little children and unlimited immigration by those who hate us and are set on our destruction. None of these things is true.
PM Netanyahu's UN General Assembly speech was a masterpiece, with the focus on the nuclear threat posed by Iran, which he detailed. But Bible prophecy watchers - and that should be everyone - should see what else he said. Here's the full transcript, from Israeli newspaper Haaretz. Read and circulate! AF.
As a Bible believing Christian, I knew Genesis was literally true and that there really was a great Flood which covered the highest mountains. But what about the Ice Age? Was there really an Ice Age? It was a question I put on my mental shelf, knowing that one day the Lord would help me understand. Now I understand! If you are interested please read on…
‘The Bible! Why, that old book, nobody can prove it.’ Alan and I were standing in line at B&Q, which is a huge DIY store in England. We had been chatting to the elderly couple behind us and we had mentioned the word ‘Bible’. The man immediately jumped on it, and practically spat the word from his mouth. ‘Actually we CAN prove it,’ Alan said.
We call on all Catholics, Freemasons, Mormons, JWs, Seventh Day Adventists, Word of Faith people, greenies, believers in evolution – join us! Join us! Join us! It is time for real Christians to stand up. It is time to get out of the false religions, the false systems, the phony religious hierarchies which Jesus never sanctioned, to get out of the churches run by prosperity preachers trying to shake you down for money, to get out of churches set up by false prophets like Joseph Smith (Mormons), Ellen G. White (Seventh Day Adventists), and Charles Taze Russell (JWs). This is it, folks – there is not much time left in which to get it right!
Six DVD recordings by Alan are now available, at £4 ($7) per talk, plus £1 ($3) per disc postage and packing. The DVD titles cover everything from the world seen through the lens of prophecy to a talk on why God sometimes says ”no” to our prayer requests. Jerusalem, Future Capital of The World; my latest talk on the cults, Israel in The Eye of The Storm and other Bible-based talks are now available. We are also cutting our book prices to £6 ($10 for the Goodbye America book only in the USA), plus postage. Time may well be short and we want to get this information out as fast as possible!

If only people would read the Bible! They will do just about anything else, but the Bible is out of the question. It has all the answers, folks! For example - reading one single page would open the eyes of Catholics and Mormons to the false nature of their religions. What page is that? I will tell you.
In a passionate speech in New York Simon Deng, who was abducted and enslaved in Sudan as a boy of nine, has condemned the United Nations for racism against the Jews and Israel. He says that Israel is considered as ‘heaven’ by muslims desperate to escape Arab/muslim tyranny.
Alan comments: I have put this article back near the top of our front page as I get constant queries about whether Chrstians should now watch Revelation TV. Pat and I do not, but those who do tell me there are many now broadcasting who should not be going out on a Christian channel run by people with discernment. I was saved while watching Christian TV, while living in America, so have a keen interest in Christian broadcasting. What a shame it is not used better.
A 22-year-old woman stood in the arena while the crowd jeered her. She was sentenced to death. Her crime: believing in Jesus Christ and refusing to worship false gods. Her name: Perpetua. The year: about 200 AD. The place: North Africa. To the delight of the crowd, a bull charged her, goring her, and flinging her body into the air.
We would never have believed it. World leaders secretly gathering for two weeks in July every year in the redwood forest of northern California? Presidents and business leaders worshipping a giant stone owl and the sacrifice of what looks like a human body on an altar in front of the owl?
Unicef reveals today that 125 million little girls have had their genitals cut off in the barbarous practice of female genital mutilation. It is the equivalent of slicing off the end of a boy's penis. Thank the Lord that is never done, but female mutilation is done and in Egypt and Somalia the practice is almost universal. These countries are of course Islamic, but that word is never mentioned. Might offend the muslims. Can't have that.
I am reprising this article, with added comments, as it is still highly pertinent. Here's what we said in October, 2008: "Will the world's dozy "big media" - big in the business sense if not in ability - please WAKE UP and follow up this story (Follows below) Big media has since ignored a filmed interview with the Kenyan ambassador to the USA when he repeated three times that Obama's Kenyan birthplace could become a tourist attraction! They have ignored numerous other Obama oddities, like the fact that he spent over $1 million fighting lawsuits requiring him to produce his birth certificate when anyone else would have produced it on the spot. If they had nothing to hide.....ALAN FRANKLIN
If you want to see what is wrong with America’s churches, it is encapsulated in what passes for ministry in the Rock Church of St. Louis. We attended the first day that “Rock” took over what was formerly the First Baptist Church of Lemay, a suburb of St. Louis. We’d attended on previous visits and Pat grew up in the neighborhood. It is now Lemay Campus of the Rock Church – and is exactly what the title should forewarn you of: loud, inconsequential, with much focus on the preacher and a daisy light message. Similar takeovers have occurred across America with disastrous results – unless you enjoy near zero Bible teaching, emotionalism and appalling, loud, discordant “music.” Honoring to the Lord? Please, grow up!
ALAN writes: As the world wonders what happens next, those of us who study Bible prophecy know only too well. The present system is tottering and cracking. Central banks are pumping out money, all kinds of schemes are being used to prop up failed banks, but it is all to no avail. Paper money is doomed, an electronic trading system will come in, together with a one-world government. Then everyone in the world will have to trade with a microchip on their foreheads or right hands. The Bible calls it "the mark of the beast."
Obama, who has yet to say anything wise or even sensible in his evil misrule of America, is predictably gung-ho for the myth of global warming. This has the effect of putting America at a needless disadvantage, as while coal burning is cut back in the USA, China gladly uses all it can get its hands on. So if America, Britain and every western nation closed all mines and installed hundreds of thousands of windmills it would make zero difference to carbon output. Carbon output, by the way, is a good thing. It’s what plants eat. That’s a really inconvenient truth for global warmists.
Here in Dallas it seems a world away from the troubles of Europe. That’s an illusion, for we are fast becoming the long planned “one world”, interconnected and tightly controlled. On Saturday I spoke at the “Living on Borrowed Time” conference organized by Lamb Lion ministries, headed by Dr. David Reagan. We flew in on AA, part of the One World alliance. Today Dave sent me this news of the latest plan which threatens confiscation of cash in Europe’s banks, many of which are barely above water. Warning: cash will crash in a flash! Read on…
The so-called “Church of England” becomes ever more a parody of itself, promoting paganism, holding “Harry Potter services” and even ordaining homosexuals. If you want a Christmas tree service or to get your pet rabbit blessed it’s a good place to go. Meanwhile, Great Britain is falling apart spiritually and morally, while the berobed bishops wring their hands and whimper – but in an all-inclusive way.
Britain’s Channel 4 has made public the secret of Scientology – a secret revealed only to Level 3 Scientologists, according to the program. We’re putting their secret on right here, so read on.
British Members of Parliament have urged more action against the most barbaric crime of female genital mutilation. Most western women will never have heard of this horrific practice of cutting away the genitals of little girls. Now it has been revealed that this monstrous evil is even happening in England, but cowardly social workers have turned a blind eye!
The Bible says that every bishop must the the husband of one wife. The Pope has no wife. No Catholic bishop has a wife. Therefore none of them are qualified to be bishops at all!
The West continues to misunderstand the Middle East mentality, particularly that of the mullahs in Iran. Their hearts and minds are set on war. If the world gets in the way of establishing their unholy caliphate, intended to usher in their Islamic “Messiah,” then the rest of the world needs to be done away with. This is the important point we get from this week’s column from Israel. Writer Marvin Kramer adds:
God has thrown some MORE rocks at the earth, and STILL no one takes any notice of Him! What does God have to do to get our attention? A whole group of asteroids passed close by the earth last night. We have had monster tsunamis, unprecedented tornadoes, floods ‘of biblical proportions’, horrific earthquakes … and still not one nation has got on its knees to repent of our wicked ways. America this month, June, formerly the month for beautiful brides, celebrates Gay Pride at the behest of our homosexual president (a Newsweek cover said he was). What does God have to do to get our attention? The Bible tells us, and it is not going to be fun…not gay at all…
Had the media and congressional leaders objectively and thoroughly examined Obama’s birth certificate, it would have been easily proven that the documents were forged and that he was totally unqualified to be President of the United States. But setting that aside, the scandals of this White House certainly rise to the level of the US Constitution’s grounds for impeachment, which are “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
Is tai chi evil, demonic rubbish as we say – or can Christians practice it or even teach it? A tai chi teacher, who says he is a born-again believer, claims we are wrong. We print his e-mail below, but would first say this: You say there is no mention of tai chi in the Bible, as if that means God has approved it! He does NOT approve it! It is based on a pagan belief that ‘chi’ is a universal force. This is not true. There is no ‘chi’, but the real force that holds the universe together is the will of the Lord Jesus Christ, who made everything and holds all things together (Colossians 1:17). So right there at the very foundation of tai chi, you have a lie.
We are very pleased to present here the May newsletter from Marvin Kramer, an American/Israeli attorney who lives in Haifa, Israel. This month he not only deals with the Israeli air strikes on Syria, but also Israel's successful destruction of a drone, shot down over the coast of Haifa by an Israeli Air Force jet with a single missile. Marvin also delves into history (the Bar Kochba rebellion which could have brought down the Roman Empire), and finishes with a mention of the Israel marathon, in which the runners felt great solidarity with Bostonians.
'Israel' was our Sunday School subject yesterday and, like every topic with a prophetic element, the children were very interested. By the end of the lesson they knew a lot and could answer questions like: 'Where will Jesus come back? What city? What hill will split in two? What gate will blow open?' That very morning the Israeli Air Force had destroyed Syrian missiles bound for Lebanon, so our lesson could not have been more topical.*
As Islamics step up terror attacks against a gullible, uncomprehending public, it is time to wake up, wise up and know our enemy. If we don’t know who the enemy is we certainly won’t be able to combat him. Only because weak and evil men now run our nations has the threat of Islamic terror - I will keep calling it what it is - become serious.
The usual hogwash is being broadcast and published about the Boston bombers. The predictable asinine nonsense came from Obama, himself a strong Islamist sympathizer whose religion was declared to be “Islamic” when he attended school in Indonesia. His very name is Islamic. So it was predictable that he would say: “We take care not to rush to judgment - not about the motivations of these individuals; certainly not about entire groups of people.”
Lady Thatcher, who died in London this week, was not just a great lady. She was the leader who saved Great Britain. Mrs Thatcher, as she then was, took an apathetic, socialist society and gave it belief, freedom and values. With her firm friend Ronald Reagan – the other post war western leader of stature– she faced down our Communist enemies and helped usher in freedom across half of Europe. That freedom has now been eroded, which is what I will be talking about in America this summer.
Many Bible-believing Christians have to face the fact that standing firm in the faith will often lead to displeasure or anger. Invitations to Roman Catholic funerals and weddings pose a tough dilemma. Should you go and please your relatives? Or should you stand on the word of God and boycott the cult that is Catholicism? Pat, who was raised Catholic and taught by nuns, has just given her response to a reader’s question:
Money rolled in by the millions to "Mother Teresa," but unfortunately as a Catholic, she did not know the true gospel, that we are saved through simple faith in Jesus Christ - not faith in the Catholic doctrines of continual masses and sacraments.
Why is once-Great Britain fast gurgling down the plughole? Why are our streets swarming with foreigners, our cities gaining ever more centres of false religion? There is judgement on the land, just as there is on America and other nations. Pat and I set this out in great detail in our books Goodbye America, Goodbye Britain and Cults and Isms: True or False? - on offer on this website. Here are some fact-packed revelations of what is really going on in Britain today - a story you won't hear on the BBC! ALAN FRANKLIN.
A feature on our website is the live traffic feed, which gives details of where our visitors come from and what they are reading. We find the information useful: we see the nations from which readers arrive; in one month there were 93 including 13 Islamic countries. However, we have no control over the advertisements at the bottom of the front page visitor list. Today I noticed “psychic” readings being advertised. This is deception from the pits of hell and you should avoid it. If this kind of rubbish starts to crop up we will reluctantly have to drop this feature.
I watched the new so-called Pope's first appearance. Sorry, but isn't he supposed to be a Christian? Why then did he totally ignore the teachings of Jesus in at least four major ways in about as many minutes!
If only Catholics - Pope, priests, nuns and people generally - would read the Bible! They would KNOW that to call the Pope 'Holy Father' is an insult to the real Father, the Father of the Lord Jesus. There is only ONE Father, and He is not residing in the Vatican. It is sickening that so many people who are trying to please God are in fact spitting in His face by ignoring His clear commands in the Bible! Catholics, wake up! Time is short!
In the same day an asteroid passed near the earth, a meteor hit Russia, another hit Cuba, and one passed over San Francisco Bay. Is God trying to tell us something? He already told us there is a huge space object on the way, burning and big as a mountain (Book of Revelation chapter 8 verse 8). That asteroid will not miss.
Now that the present Pope is to quit, attention is focused on his successor, especially in the light of the alleged prophecies of a man known as “Saint” Malachy, which tells you all you need to know. Be wary lest you be sucked in by this claptrap. I put as much value on it as on the alleged “Mayan Prophecies.” When I first heard those my comment was: “Who cares what they predicted? They knew so much about the future that they are extinct…” The same goes for all those who claim to be seers. I have lived among such people, heard their philosophy, attended séances and so on. The one thing you can be certain of is: they do NOT know the future.
A reader has asked if Christians should be in politics. We have encountered the (foolish) view that Christians should avoid politics. Some Christians even refuse to vote! No wonder our countries are in such a mess.
A bakery owner in Oregon is 'under investigation' after refusing to make a wedding cake for two lesbians.This news came on the day when the British Parliament voted in favor of the Gay Marriage Bill. If that becomes law, Christians will be persecuted* in ways that cannot even be predicted...and the baker in Oregon is already suffering that persecution.
One of America's patriotic sheriffs has put his foot down. Sheriff Gil Gilbertson has sent an official letter to Vice President Biden saying that he will not obey any executive order which is unlawful and unconstitutional.
The message on Sunday was a fascinating one, from the Book of Revelation. The speaker told of two kinds of churches, one that Jesus was happy with, and a rich church which made Him vomit! Both these churches are still here...
I am so sick of hearing people on TV talking about the Big Bang. After hopefully setting our TV to tape the British series 'Stargazers Live' I deleted the link in disgust after enduring one and a half programs of Big Bang propaganda.
Here’s how Oliver Cromwell, one of England’s great heroes, would have described them: To the rump BBC: It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.
Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you?
Why are our societies falling apart? Simple: we have abandoned God's way and now do it "our way," in the words of the idiotic Frank Sinatra song. Now even the business world has cottoned on! This comment is from Investors' Business Daily. "Countless studies have shown that children raised in a two-parent family are less likely to be raised in poverty, less likely to take drugs, less likely to be criminals later in life, and more likely to graduate from and do well in school."
As our world teeters on the brink of financial disaster, famine and wars, and The Greater Depression I have been predicting for years comes closer, even secular people realise that something big is happening. Every day brings headlines using the word "crisis." The Bible tells us exactly what the sequence of events is. Most churches fail to teach the importance of Bible prophecy. Ours - Tongham Christian Fellowship in Poyle Road, Tongham, Surrey, is an exception. This is some of what I teach there.
If you want to change the world, fill the children's heads with propaganda. Thus we have a United Nations children's book promoting fears of catastrophic man-made global warming being promoted at a UN Climate Change Conference. No alternate view is allowed, of course - in the new PC world being constructed by the New World Order, greenism is the new religion, presided over by a wise "mother" figure. Just as in witchcraft, also at the roots of militant feminism.
We had a day out, visiting Charles Darwin's house in Kent, nestled deep in the English countryside and reached via miles of narrow, winding lanes. I found myself wishing the lanes had evolved a bit more, particularly the ones just wide enough for one car, but carrying traffic in both directions. Scary!
Churches that do not make judgments, denounce evil and promote the Gospel Truth are failing in their duty. People sometimes whimper at me that I shouldn’t be judging. Rubbish! If you want to know the Biblical way to judge, here’s the link to an excellent article on our website: http://thefreepressonline.co.uk/news/1/2277.htm
Long term journalists like Pat and myself can sum people up fast. When you’ve interviewed thousands of people, met loads of politicians, covered courts and political meetings for decades, and worked for all the different big news media, you can discern truth from fiction. It has been obvious to us, from the time the Obamanation shot from nowhere to be anointed “president” by an adoring liberal media, that the man was the biggest fraud, phony and conman ever to illegally occupy the White House. Now here is the smoking gun…..ALAN FRANKLIN.
We have a new dinosaur series on TV and, boy oh boy, do they allow their imaginations to run wild. Presented as science, much of it is just speculative nonsense. How I wish they would allow scientists who believe in the Bible account of creation to have their say.
COMMENT By Alan Franklin.
Saudi clergy have a new hate symbol - the letter X. These bears of little brain say it looks too much like a cross. They also say the earth is flat. We promise we are not making this up. Would anyone take these clowns seriously if it weren't for all that oil we dicsovered for them?
America is looking for answers. The Gospel is our only chance. We must teach it to our young. Why won’t somebody say it? Don’t we love our children? We first put this article on our website in 2008, but repeat it as it is still relevant in the light of the latest US school slaughter. Where was God? Well, actually, politicians like Obama kicked Him out of the schools, banned prayer, forced crosses to be removed from war memorials and taught that there are no absolute truths. Now the nation - like Britain and others - is reaping the inevitable whirlwind.
Rumors about Obama that have circulated like bad smells for years have finally been put into print.
Most people are aware that a great financial crisis rumbles on round the world. Sooner or later the system will crash – or be crashed. That’s when I expect Antichrist – the strong man the world is waiting for – to step forward from the wings to take control of what will become a one-world government. The signs are everywhere in news bulletins; enormous bank losses, countries in Europe facing bankruptcy, a plan for a “super powerful EU president,” and much else. We have a DVD available via this website on the whole, sinister EU plot.
People often say to me "oh we can't say that," when referring to something in religious circles, or a trend in society, with which they disagree. They are mostly wrong. We can still say a great deal, still be critical of belief systems PROVIDED we do not deliberately stir up trouble or violence against individuals on grounds of race or religion. As Christians we would do no such thing, so we will continue to say what we think. In Dallas this week I will certainly be telling the whole truth, however uncomfortable or unfashionable.
This article points up a major danger facing Britain: the fast rising Islamic population. The latest Government census reveals that the nation's Muslim population has almost doubled in ten years and is now apprpoaching five per cent. Because immigration, legal and illegal, is mostly unchecked and out of control, these statistics may be a gross under-estimate.
No doubt, across America and the western world, people are wondering what is going on across the Middle East. Fortunately, the Bible sets out the scenario and its outcome: the end of Islam. This false religion, based more on fantasy and bits cribbed and distorted from the Jews and early Christians than on any “prophecies,” is currently looking formidable. That’s because its opponents are perceived as weak and without convictions. President Carter was a good example and it took the anticipation of a stronger man, President Reagan, taking office, to end the Iranian Embassy hostage crisis. Islam succeeds only when its opponents back away and give ground.
I first published this article in spring, 2008, before the fall financial crash, in response to an article from a friend who runs a TV ministry in America.The article speculated about exchange controls in Europe to fight the overvalued currency. Asked where I saw things heading, this was my reply, covering everything from the coming cash of cash, The Greater Depression and the entry of antichrist. It is even more relevant today than it was nearly five years ago. Our website has hundreds of such articles: find them by putting key words into our search engine, top right.
One thing that saddens me is that most black Christians voted for the viciously anti-Christian Obama, the man who thinks it is fine for a man to marry another man, the President who declared every June to be “pervert pride” month and wears a tie and handkerchief in the rainbow hues favored by the perverted. This is, in fact, racism: voting because of race instead of merit, for Obama clearly has none. By the way, Obama is descended from Arab slave traders, which is why he has an Arabic name! He is only one sixteenth black African and thus cannot be called "the first black president."
It's 'End of the World Week' on TV and there are some fascinating programs, but none have the whole picture. Lots of experts have been airing their fears and the probabilities of disaster, but none that I've seen has a real handle on what is coming. Jesus has already told us!
Our daughter Annie has written an insightful article on Israel. She and her husband Michael live in the northern Galilee region.
One of Europe’s greatest politicians is Nigel Farage, leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party. Here he gives a perceptive interview - not to the appalling, pro EU Biased Broadcasting Corporation – the rotten-to-the-core BBC- but to Russian TV! Yes, you are more likely to get the truth there than on most western media, which likes to pretend UKIP doesn’t exist. Incidentally, my view that Europe will go seeking a new strong man is mine, not necessarily Nigel's!
Weep for Scotland.The Church of Scotland is all set to seize a church building in Glasgow. The congregation of St George's Tron split with the denomination last June over the ordination of openly homosexual ministers.
I enjoy using the web, and was telling people about Google in the early 2000s when most people hadn’t heard of the new company, founded in 1998 - source: http://www.google.com/about/company/history/
There is so much pseudo spiritual trash on religious TV and in churches generally, but at the church we attend in England we usually have a spiritual feast. Here is one, a teaching on the return of the Lord Jesus. The guest preacher was Don Hender from Bournemouth.
Have you seen the Doomsday Preppers programs? We found them hilarious at first.
In this column a great preacher says farewell to a great politician. There are few of those around today, but Ron Paul of Texas was one. He saw through the pseudo-conservatives who control the Republican Party, just as in Britain there is no true “conservative” party, but a limp, liberal coalition leading the country to disaster. Somehow, Ron Paul got through the mesh that usually filters out the good candidates and installs pitiful inadequates like “Mitt” – “I’m wearing my magic underwear” Romney, who would have been almost as big a calamity for America as the imposter in the White House.
It was my once-a-month turn to do the Sunday School, and when I asked the Lord what I should teach on, over the next few weeks He kept bringing the same subject into my mind: is Jesus really God? Can we prove it?
Readers who key in “Obama” or “Obamanation” into our search engine top right will know that I have never believed a word uttered by The Kenyan Conman - the first illegal immigrant to con his way into The White House. You will find dozens of stories going right back to the time this shifty, glib, evil Manchurian Candidate first came to worldwide notice in 2008. We told of people with personal stories of his Kenyan background, his time in Indonesia when he was registered at school as Moslem, and much else – all of which the pathetic excuse for big media ignored or ridiculed.
The small fellowship we attend in England received a most urgent warning this week - that time is short and we have to step up a notch. 'Salvation is a free gift, but rewards are earned...'
Yesterday, Sept.26, was the Day of Atonement in Israel. No cars were on the roads. Instead they were filled with families walking down the middle of the streets, children cycling, roller skating, zipping around on scooters, and having a good time.
Edward Atkinson (81) is virtually crippled with arthritis, but his brain is switched on. He knows abortion is wrong, and he sent information including pictures to the head of an English hospital. Now once-Great Britain, which used to believe in free speech, has responded with a jail sentence - Mr Atkinson's third jail sentence. This one was suspended, but is still on the books.
Those who have prayed for Pastor Nardarkhani in Iran to be released will be very glad that after three long years in prison, he is finally back with his family. This brave man would not deny his faith in Jesus Christ, and his treatment shows Islam up for exactly what it is - oppressive, tyrannical, cruel, anti-Christian, inhumane, unloving, unkind, undemocratic and an enemy of all God-given human rights.
Ronnie McCracken was trying to sleep. The window was open and he could hear the waves lapping the shore of Galilee. Here is the poem that came to him in the night.
You probably thought NASA's job had to do with spaceships and exploring the solar system. Silly old you. Mr Obama has given them a new priority - to make the muslim nations feel good.
We often advise people to question what speakers and writers say, especially if it looks odd or outlandish. The first example of a glimpse into heaven that comes to my mind is Stephen, the first Christian martyr. So Terry James' account of a vision of heaven is in line with Scripture. Here Alan answers a reader called Harry who questioned this. The query is at the end.
Terry James is a man who died. Three times. Now he is alive – and still on earth. So if you want to know if there is a heaven, what it is like, who is there and what they look like, ask Terry, right? But there’s a problem. Terry is blind. But the Lord Jesus had a way with the blind. He opened their eyes.
Thanks to CMI, Creation Ministries International, for their brilliant story of the turtles turned into stone while mating.
The person occupying the Oval Office has issued a new order. As Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, he has ordered all our military to celebrate June as Gay Pride Month.
When Alan is invited to speak anywhere, I always wonder what amazing people we will meet there. The gathering at a small back street church in Portsmouth, England*, was no exception.
This Sunday I am speaking at our home church, Tongham Christian Fellowship, giving a message on the end times, what’s going on in the world and the hope all believers have. The talk is pertinent for the perilous times we are in, when war in the Middle East could break out at any time, when our society is falling apart and when the whole world could still face financial catastrophe. Our church is in Poyle Road and the service starts at 10.30.
Israel is in the eye of the storm – it’s the grit in the world’s eye. As prophecy after prophecy is being fulfilled leading to the soon return of the Lord Jesus Christ, worldwide hatred of the Jewish people is rapidly rising. Sadly, many in the anti-Semitic movement are so-called “Christian leaders,” men who seem to forget that Jesus was a Jew who will return to rule and reign from Jerusalem. To counter “pro Palestinian” propaganda propounded by the world media, a church in Britain has published a detailed rebuttal of the lies told at a recent conference in Bethlehem, called “Christ at The Checkpoint.” Their response is called “The Church at Christ’s Checkpoint” and we have some details of how you can get a copy. AF
There are many false teachers abroad in these end times of great deception, none more so than the Biblical ignoramuses who claim that “the Jews are made up of two tribes and the gentile Church comprises the 10 lost tribes of Israel.” Let's expose this foul lie of Satan.
Large amounts of money and political pressure are being put into promoting the homosexual lifestyle. What most people instinctively know is repulsive, unnatural, dangerous and evil is being promoted by politicians and perverts alike as just another lifestyle choice. Unfortunately for those of this opinion, the Bible tells a different story. God warns repeatedly in the Holy Bible that adopting a perverted lifestyle, which is what homosexuality is, leads to disease, downfall, destruction and eternity in hell. That is not a fashionable thing to say. However, it is the truth, whatever the gender and truth benders would have you believe. AF.
Here Pat, "a cradle Catholic" taught by priests and nuns for 12 years, answers a reader's query about Mary and her alleged sinless conception. This is one of numerous errors taught by this false church, some of which you can see by downloading from this site's Tables of Truth - and there is much more in our books.
This Sunday message, delivered at our home church, Tongham Christian Fellowship, on Sunday March 18, 2012, aims to show the importance of taking the Word of God seriously - from Genesis to Revelation. If you start leaving out chunks of the Bible you don't accept, the whole narrative rapidly becomes a nonsense. That's why the demolition of Darwinism is vital. This message aims to provide some of the ammunition. ALAN FRANKLIN
This article by our friend Colin, a 58 year old bachelor and committed Christian, shows that just because an organization has “Christian” in its title doesn’t necessarily mean its users believe the whole truth of the Bible. Colin discovered that many who logged in to a dating site for believers didn’t fully accept the word of God, for example, in areas like homosexuality where God’s commands are unmistakable. Here’s Colin’s story: AF
The Bible beautifully sums up the likes of the British atheist whose pathetic claim of being offended by public prayers has led to a classic anti-prayer ruling in the High Court. Psalm 53:1 "The fool has said in his heart, 'There is no God,' They are corrupt, and have committed abominable injustice ; There is no one who does good. " God knows how to communicate! Not a lot of scope for misunderstanding that is there?
American orthodontist Dr Jack Cuozzo has revealed the astonishing truth about ancient man. Few scientists are ever allowed access to original skulls, but have to make do with replicas on display in museums. Dr Cuozzo saw the real thing, x-rayed Neanderthal skulls in Europe, and found out the truth - and the lies about man's 'evolution'.
What’s coming fast down the pike? A world-wide police state! Our friend and mentor Barry Smith from New Zealand spotted this over 40 years ago and travelled the world warning about the looming New World Order. Barry died, on a preaching tour of Britain in 2002, but were he with us today he would jump up excitedly, clap his hands and exclaim: “Cash is about to crash!”
The evidence mounts for Noah's Flood. Now 80 whale fossils have been found in a desert in Chile, far from the sea. Just what one would expect as the ocean basins formed, the waters receded, the continents rose, and many marine animals were cut off from the oceans, trapped inland, and rapidly buried in sediment.
Do you have a cute little gnome or pixie in your yard? Many do. You might be surprised to find that it is not so cute after all, and is in fact a modern representation of the ‘great and terrible god Baal’ of the Canaanites. Ridiculous? I am afraid not. On a visit to Israel I saw many heads of Baal in the museum at Dor, just south of Haifa in the north. They look just like the garden gnomes so popular in England. And they are virtually identical to the Seven Dwarves in the Snow White story. This story, first on the website in October 2008, has been brought back to the fore by reader interest.
Are Pat and I going over the top when we condemn garden gnomes, whose true inspiration Pat exposed in this article: Baal - the pagan idol in your garden, http://thefreepressonline.co.uk/news/1/880.htm Readers can rest assured that as lifelong journalists, editors and authors, we believe almost nothing unless backed up by facts, research and, preferably, first-hand experience. So when a long term reader who we respect challenged us on this, we explained why we wouldn’t give a gnome a home. Go smash their heads off!
It’s Sunday in Israel, when the nation gets back to work after the Shabbat, the Jewish holy day. Life here in the north, just ten miles from the Lebanese border, is much like that in any Mediterranean coastal area: this image is deceptive. As I wrote in my article about financial meltdown and military mayhem, you can almost hear the war drums emanating from nations all round this tiny country. The Islamic caliphate is taking shape.
I am getting e-mails from lots of people, especially in America, asking what is happening in Europe and the Middle East, how long we have before the world financial system crashes – and much else in the same vein. What comes first: currency collapse or major wars? Or do we get the worst of all possible worlds? Read on!
If you want to control people, you first have to scare them half to death. Thus it is with the delusion of “global warming,” a non-science turned into an industry, hyped up by a bunch of academic con-artists who love the grants gullible governments shower on them for devising solutions to a problem they have dreamed up: literally, “hot air.”
At Thanksgiving , one wonders what the Pilgrims would have thought about “Occupy Wall Street” and its effort to redistribute wealth. The answer is revealing: they tried it - it failed. And they were better people than the layabouts camping out in New York and London.(AF). Now read Bill Federer's great article.
When I made our first video, called “End Times News”, in 1999, it was clear to me that Europe was becoming a superstate, there would be a one-world currency and government and Antichrist would rule from an EU powerbase. He would be of Roman origin. Now the plan – the EU calls itself “the project” –is almost in place. The independence of nations is vanishing as fast as their governments search in vain for solutions, a major war could break out in the Middle East at any moment and cash is about to crash in a flash! Now the Germans say a united Europe will have just one currency.
Not a lot of people know that between 1530 and 1780 more WHITE slaves were kidnapped and sold than Africans! The culprits were the same people who started, continued and still operate the slave trade: Arab Muslims. Evidence of this abounds. For example, Obama’s name is Arab – he is the descendant, in large measure, of Muslim slavers. A million white people- a huge number in the days when populations were small – were kidnapped from places like the coasts of Ireland, where whole villages were snatched and taken to north Africa or the Middle East.
The world is fast moving towards the climax of history and prophecy: the formation of a one world bank, one world currency - and one world government! Heading it will be the Man of Sin – Antichrist. The Vatican, which will form the basis of the coming one world church – the Bible calls it “the whore church” (Revelation 17:16) is fast moving into its prophesied position, by calling for a “global public authority” and a “central world bank”.
When a Connecticut high school put on a play which featured two men passionately kissing, there was screaming and a rush for the doors. We believe the students had a natural human reaction to a revolting scene.
This Sunday, October 16, I am speaking in our home church, Tongham Christian Fellowship. And I am going to be intolerant. Everything I say will be politically incorrect – but Biblically correct. I will explain just why our society is falling apart, why children grow up confused and self destructive, why nothing seems to make sense any more and we live in the age of unreason. For there IS a reason behind all our troubles. It is a spiritual malaise which brings on all the other troubles currently multiplying on all sides. Here’s some of what I will be saying…
We have had a brilliant weekend at the little fellowship we attend in southeast England. Aussie geologist John Mackay did a teaching weekend, presenting much information about creation (in six days, just as the Bible says), Noah's Flood (the evidence is all over the earth!) and much else.
Has any normal person ever understood a word of the drivel spouted by Rowan Williams, the C of E's arch-druid? Does anyone ever get saved as they listen to whimpering little sermons on recycling tin cans? Here a priest gives his verdict on the church that has become a catastrophe and a disgrace. AF. "The bishops and synodsmen, the hierarchy which presumes to govern us, is intellectually vacuous, senile and entirely captured by - what it ought prophetically to oppose - the spirit of a debauched and decadent age.
Today, when schools seldom teach facts and few people understand history, let alone Bible prophecy, it is wonderful to know that there are great teachers out there who DO get to the point. As the UN has been debating what it calls "Palestine" this article, from Compass International, is timely. Much of it is based on a presentation by TV's best Bible prophecy teacher, Dr David Reagan, whose DVD on the subject we highly recommend. (See how to buy it below.) Get the REAL story here!
Billionaire wannabe philanthropist Warren Buffett is the inspiration behind the Obamanation's plan to "tax the rich." He wrote that he should be paying more taxes and urged Washington to up tax rates on the rich. Now here's the rub, and why we should never take the sly old dog seriously ever again. He is a hypocrite. For Buffett’s company, Berkshire Hathaway, is fighting to avoid paying taxes the government says it owes! The bill has been estimated at $1 billion.
A girl aged 11 fainted during a crude sex education film being shown at her school in England. Her mother told me that the girl was ill for two days following the class and began having nightmares.
Children are being brainwashed. They are taught that the greatest threat to the world is “global warming” when in fact this is an easily disproved fantasy – one kept going because many scientists prefer government grants to telling the truth. I will reveal two examples which, in a small way, illustrate what is happening on a worldwide scale. Al Gormless-style eco-fanaticism is one of the tools being used to construct the New World Order.
Only green windbags think that wind power is anything but a sickly green joke – with the laugh on the taxpayers forking out massive subsidies to keep these vast, usually immobile white elephants as blots on the landscape. Behind this costly and doomed experiment is an even more expensive boondoggle – the Greenhouse Gas lie. Now this unscientific theory has been refuted in a momentous lab experiment.
A major Middle Eastern conflict was predicted by the prophet Ezekiel 2.500 years ago. It involves a Russian army leading a confederation of nations, among them Turkey and Iran, to attack Israel. God destroys them (see Ezekiel 38/9). But the interesting development in this “Bible in the news” saga is that until recently Turkey was a friend of Israel - and had a secular constitution. That is now changing fast, as this report shows - and that is important as we move into the End Times when major prophecies are about to be fulfilled. AF
Biologists have recently discovered a gene that suggests that God may not be above playing a practical joke on those who reject what His Word says. For more great information on creationism look up http://creation.com/ - it's one of our links and highly recommended.
One of the most fantastic lies of our age is the myth of “global warming.” Seen the pictures of one of the last few polar bears floating on a pathetic little bit of ice? Sad isn’t it? Pass the collection tin. But did you know that the bears have had a population explosion? Their population has risen fivefold in 50 years. Read on, for more of the real story….
Since we wrote our book Goodbye America, Goodbye Britain (available from our web shop) I have been speaking and writing about the Coming Greater Depression. The book, published in 2006, predicted, among other things “The Coming Foreclosure Tragedy” and we heard this week that over two million US homes are in foreclosure, two million more are over 90 days in mortgage arrears and millions more are headed for trouble. But national bankruptcy is the big story, in America, Europe and elsewhere. I have repeatedly said: "We are heading for the buffers in a slow motion train wreck.” Well, the buffers are just ahead, in my opinion. Read on: there are steps you can take. Above all, get right with God. Terrifying times are just ahead.
Muslims in Britain, now a majority population in large sections of many British cities, are planning to enforce strict Sharia Law in areas already under their effective control, where British police repeatedly fail to enforce the law of the land. The Muslims plan to ban people from freely mixing with the opposite sex on the streets, among other things. No doubt all women will be required to wear the usual bin-liners over their heads. Just how much of this vile nonsense is our country going to put up with before it grows a collective backbone? AF.
As Governments squander billions on idiotic energy non-solutions like windmills, real scientists are stepping up to challenge the hyped up green lies propounded by windbags like Al Gore- the only man on earth who could power-up a windmill single-handed. There follows a demolition of The Big Green Lie Machine by Dr. David Evans, who says he was “once on the carbon gravy train.” The evidence turned him from “warmist to sceptic.” He says in the next 20 years we can expect mild global cooling!
We live in England and spiritually it is about as dark as a coal mine. Most people here are on the broad way that leads to destruction, and very few have chosen the narrow way that leads to Heaven. This is because so few people take the Bible seriously. Think again, folks! I hope to convince you in this article that not only is the Bible completely true, but you can PROVE it ! Please read !
When I told the owner of a Christian bookshop that his books on the 'emerging church' were wrong, he said: 'Judge not, lest you be judged!' He had never learned that there are FIVE Greek words for judging in the Bible...
This article from FrontPage Magazine, via The Jerusalem Connection, has news of a lawsuit filed accusing Iran and Hezbollah - the Lebanese terrorists who daily threaten Israel - of supporting and sponsoring the deadliest attack on US soil. Iranian intelligence defectors have spilled the beans.....
ALAN writes: Pat and I have just returned from a weekend in the North of England, visiting the fine old city of Bradford. It was both interesting and depressing, as the Islamic tide is sweeping in, taking over whole areas. There is definitely the attitude among the immigrants that they are here to dominate us and eventually take over. I took pictures of one of the biggest and ugliest buildings I have seen - the vast new Bradford mosque, clearly built with oil money- plus a handout from the European Union. Talk about paying for our own funeral. Is the takeover unstoppable? Bill Federer, an American writer and speaker, has some ideas - for exactly the same thing is happening in the USA. Here's how to stop the rot.
The Bible talks about a ‘mighty rushing wind,’ but did you know that there once was such a wind in England and one man was sucked about 800 feet up into the air? His name was Alan Trimmer and here is the amazing story.
ALAN FRANKLIN writes: This well researched series of articles just came my way, casting yet more doubt on the odd origins of the usurper in The White House, whose records don't have the ring of truth. An investigation has revealed the identity of the man whose Social Security number (SSN) has been illegally used by Obama: Jean Paul Ludwig, who was born in France in 1890, emigrated to the United States in 1924, and was assigned SSN 042-68-4425 in or about March, 1977.
These figures, astounding to anyone who hasn’t been to a big British city recently, only tell part of the story. There is profound practical, spiritual and prophetic significance to this tidal wave of immigration, unleashed as it was by Tony Blair – the man who finally destroyed Britain. Blair, now busily trying to wreck the rest of the world with his so-called “Faith Foundation,” believes in something called “multi-culturalism,” a concept fraught with peril.
Blair, who became known in Britain as "Tony B. Liar," was not just a disaster, but a catastrophe in his time mismanaging the governance of Britain. Now he is passing on his alleged "wisdom" in lucrative lecture tours, using the money to fund things like his "Faith Foundation" and joining with Rick Warren to spread a false doctrine round the world. Christians: do not line this man's pockets! Everything he did in his time in office was profoundly anti-Christian, from promoting abortion and homosexuality to claiming Islam is a religion of peace, when this is manifestly untrue. AF.
Israel is the subject, not just of irrational worldwide hatred, but of a campaign of mass misinformation of which Hitler’s propaganda chief Goebbels would have been proud. Thus the one truly free state in the Middle East is labeled “an apartheid state.” The fact that university students in Edinburgh believe this, together with students throughout the world, is a sad commentary on the pitiful state of the British education “system”, in which students are seemingly no longer able to analyze and think objectively. Here a distinguished writer and former Edinburgh student, Dr. Denis MacEoin, sets the record straight. The world needs to know these facts! ALAN FRANKLIN.
Despite decades of brainwashing by pro-homosexual people in the media and in the liberal establishment, most people still know in their hearts that homosexuality - being attracted to one's own sex - is utterly repellent. More importantly, that's what God says. Now a court has ruled that Christians CAN say that sodomy is an abomination. This story is from Ulster television, Northern Ireland.
Tony Blair, having done his best to destroy Great Britain, is now undermining the rest of the world. Ex British Prime Minister Blair is now on a mission to bring the world'S faiths together and usher in peace. Ho ho ho. He should read the Bible, but as a Catholic convert that will be the last book he’ll ever crack open.
Pat and I love the Roman Catholic people. It is their rotten, false church that we despise- a church that sends millions of people to hell every year and a major component of the fast-forming Great Whore Church of Revelation (Rev 17). This is the age of the Laodicean Church, the lukewarm church, and compromise is everywhere. Now it has spread to Northern Ireland, where previously enough people knew their scriptures to be able to mount an effective defence of the faith. That’s why Satan hates Northern Ireland and causes so many problems there: it is a beacon of truth, where the full Gospel is still proclaimed. But there is compromise afoot there…..
Atheists and skeptics love to hurl criticism at the Bible, the word of God. But God’s word provides its own best defense, for it has the ring of truth, tolling down through the centuries. I was sent a series of questions by an atheist. Some are valid, others just silly, but they are the sort of questions all Christians are asked at some time. God expects us to give an account of our belief, to “contend earnestly for the faith” as Jude put it. So here are our Biblical answers to a critic’s questions.
Most of the world’s nations will announce recognition of a Palestinian state by September 2011, Palestinian foreign minister Riyad al-Malki says. Yet Palestine does not, never has and will not exist as a nation!Beware, world. All who come against Israel come against God Himself. We know the outcome of the present Middle East problem. It’s at the end of the Book of Revelation.
The European Union, the superstate which is sucking the life out of 27 formerly free, sovereign nations of Europe - is about to ban many herbal remedies, including some used for hundreds of years. Before huge drug companies grew up, to provide us with remedies at great expense, ordinary folk in Europe foraged for medicinal herbs. These were free, sometimes worked well and gave people with initiative the chance to make some money by preparing and selling herbal treatments.
Hungry people are desperate people. Hungry people take risks. Those with little to lose start revolutions. What has happened in Tunisia, is happening in Egypt and may well happen in countries like Jordan and Libya and perhaps even Saudi Arabia is all part of the end times scenario which Pat and I elaborate on in our books, Goodbye America, Goodbye Britain, and Cults and Isms: True or False?
Pat and I have been professional journalists and authors for over 40 years. In that time we have striven to write and speak the truth. Since we found that the Bible contains the ultimate truth and is God's word to His creation - the Maker's handbook - we have used our skills to illustrate that The Holy Bible is wholly true. That's why we are proud to be called "Fundamentalists."
The unelected Belgian nonentity who presides over the expensive farce that is the European Union says it's time to say goodbye to the nation state- and to welcome what is effectively a Euro dictatorship with a puppet parliament with few powers. It's so corrupt that for 16 years auditors have refused to sign off its books. Meanwhile they lavish taxpayers' cash on the following: a hydrotherapy centre for dogs and sending a troupe round Britain to perform the Smelly Foot Dance.
Taxpayers’ cash has also gone to a ‘hip-hop laboratory’ in Lyon, France, to address the ‘lack of co-operation in European hip-hop’.
The ongoing war against the Jews is a fairly obvious fact of life. Every day, the citizens of the Jewish homeland defend themselves against armies of terrorists whose maps spell out the goal they have in mind: a Middle East without Israel. In Europe, Jewish populations increasingly find themselves targeted by people who share that goal. And in the United States, I fear that our foreign policy only emboldens these extremists.
A regular reader, Colin Ford, alerted me to a brilliant TV programme on Channel Four in Britain called “Britain’s Trillion Pound Horror Story.” This documentary, one of the best things I have seen on TV, showed graphically what I have been saying for years: Britain, like America, is basically bankrupt. Unlike Ireland and Greece, the creditors are not yet losing sleep, but that must only be a matter of time if we keep spending like mad lottery winners. This, plus thoughts on Israel, finding a good church and much else. ALAN FRANKLIN.
One of the main reasons nations decline is that they turn against Israel. America and Britain have both done so and both are now heading fast towards a brick wall as judgment falls on them from all sides. God blesses those who bless the Jews and curses those who curse them. History repeatedly proves this statement true.
ALAN writes: Many years ago, when I was a New Ager, living and working with people trying to usher in the Age of Aquarius, they were very attracted to UFOs. Some thought that aliens would come to earth to give us their secret knowledge and save us from destruction. Later, as a reporter, I spent years investigating alien spacecraft reports, some credible, some ridiculous. Now, as we approach the time of the rapture, occultists and other enemies of Jesus will soon be faced with having to explain the disappearance of millions of born again Christians. What better explanation than alien abduction?
Our national leaders are shortsighted opportunists, possessing little regard for their oaths to the US Constitution, the principles of decency, or even plain, old-fashioned common sense. Both major parties in Washington, D.C., offer the American people varying degrees of socialism. Federalism and limited government have all but disappeared under the oversight of both Republican and Democratic leaders.
Evolution or Creation? Which is it? Are you struggling to find the truth? Are you trying to make the Bible fit in with millions of years of evolution? Read our chapter on evolution, reprinted here, and we hope it will help readers get their thoughts straight on what really happened and how we came to be here. The chapter is from our latest book, 'Cults and Isms - True or False', which is available from our webshop.
"thefreepressonline.co.uk" the web newspaper of journalists Alan and Pat Franklin, has its home base in Hampshire, England. I (Alan) am a British newspaperman who for 21 years edited a paper in England. My American wife Pat worked as a writer and sub-editor. Our collaborative books are "Goodbye America, Goodbye Britain," full of timely warnings why the world is heading for financial, moral and spiritual meltdown, and "Cults and Isms: True or False," which exposes the false faiths.
ALAN FRANKLIN writes: For years I have watched as more and more land was seized by self-appointed "environmental" extremists. Farmland- ever more important -was bought by well funded so-called conservation groups which then banned those terrible things, people.Talk to a greenie and you will soon discover the alleged major threat to the planet - people. There is a plan to drastically reduce the world's population, which is why euthenasia is being pushed so hard. Now the oceans are to be managed- fishermen beware.They plan to net you.
Alan writes: Islam is a religion of force and war. It respects only strength. Attempts at making peace with it or accommodating it are perceived - rightly - as weakness, and taken advantage of. Thus it is that throughout Europe, Islam is gaining ground fast as mosques sprout in former church buildings, Christians are hindered in every way from preaching the Gospel while a blind eye is often turned to Islamic excess. Thus it is that nationas like Britain are participating in their own destruction. This is a secular take on the situation, full of some good insights.
ALAN FRANKLIN writes: All news should be viewed through the lens of prophecy to understand what is really happening. Without thorough Bible knowledge, particularly of the one-third of the Bible that is prophetic, the world situation makes no sense. Who are the bad guys? Who are the good guys? Who should we trust? - and what happens next. These are subjects I cover in detail when I speak, in the USA for the next month - see below for speaking dates. Now let’s take a look at a report stating that Russia has been violating the 1991 nuclear arms treaty – and Iran and others are also misbehaving….
When authors of occult-based books, like the Harry Potter series, say they got their stories from ideas that popped into their heads -" quite spooky," as J. K. Rowling put it, parents should be on red alert. The spate of vampire films is another sign of the end times demonic influences at work. This article reveals more of the occult influences influencing young teenagers.
Only the Genesis account of creation makes any sense: the evolution myth makes none. Now British scientists have worked out that the chicken must have come before the egg- as eggs can only be formed inside birds. God is the master designer - as (presumably) non-believing scientists are now discovering.
We have just put in a link to the USA Debt Clock. Click on our Links, left, to get the list and then click on the debt clock. As of the time of writing this the US debt is at $13 trillion, but this does not begin to tell the whole story. It does not contain the unfunded liabilities, like pensions and potential health costs which some commentators say could put the figure up to $50 trillion.
ALAN writes: One man asked me if I thought that watching sport was wrong. Not at all. It’s keeping things in perspective that matters. I’ll tell you a funny story: my small role when England won the World Cup, in 1966. As a young reporter, one of my jobs then was to ghost write a column for a well known footballer, a member of the England squad.
Famous atheists’ last words before dying. Voltaire: ‘I am abandoned by God and man…I shall go to hell.’ Thomas Paine: 'I would give worlds, if I had them, that the "Age of Reason" had never been published. Oh, God, save me; for I am at the edge of hell alone…’
We urge our readers to print out any articles they find helpful, especially the Tables of Truth (top left). The day is coming when this and other truthful websites will be gone, possibly overnight. So keep a hard copy of anything you might need in future. We thank God for the Internet and this website, and for Christian radio. As mainstream media refuses to report the truth on many matters, people like us can still reach out through the Internet. But this door may be slammed shut...
We first posted this on March 14,2009, when we paid the Internet fees for the next two years in advance. But there may not BE another two years of freedom!
London has been the world's test bench for a range of tracking gadgets. We have more CCTV than any other city - there are 250 cameras alone within a mile of my house in Hoxton. Again, convenience was at the heart of the sales pitch, this time to the police. Imagine, no more trudging the cold streets. Sit in comfort and watch the crimes unfold. You only need to get out there when there is a problem. And to citizens, the systems are sold by fear. ALAN comments: This report from London shows how every move we make is tracked and monitored. The Big Brother beast system is almost here!
Britain and the other 26 countries of the EU now form a single superstate, a revived Roman Empire as predicted by the Prophet Daniel 2,500 years ago. Of course, most of the 500 million prisoners of the evil new institution are unaware that their fate is sealed, that they are citizens of what is destined to be the most evil state in the world's history. Here a leading Irish academic, Anthony Coughlan, sets out the full, chilling facts on how we are now utterly subservient to Brussels. ALAN FRANKLIN.
Internet censorship bills currently working their way into law in the UK, Australia and the U.S. legislate for government powers to restrict and filter any website deemed undesirable. ALAN FRANKLIN comments: Freedom is fast slipping away. Be warned, be watchful and get the facts while we are still able to get them out - our books and DVDS are full of things you should know! A special offer on them is on this website. From August 2010 I am touring America and welcome speaking date inquiries.
Sixty-one years after the birth of the State of Israel, the Jewish state continues to be assailed by its enemies. From the halls of the United Nations to the classrooms of major universities and in the pressrooms of major newspapers and magazines, attacks on the legitimacy of every move by Israel -- and even of the state`s existence itself -- continue to be made.
The 27 countries which have signed over their sovereignty to the EU superstate get ever more emeshed in red tape. This report shows that £66 billion - that's 66 thousand million - has been wasted just in increased red tape on making farmers' lives a misery. Big brother bureaucracy is the end result of these huge, socialist structures - in both Europe and now in America. The other result is our loss of freedom - fast approaching! ALAN FRANKLIN.
Here are some well aimed darts fired at the incompetent allegedly running - or should it be ruining - Great Britain. Just in case any foreigners unfortunate enough to get a visit from this fool think that he has anything sensible to say. Read- and enjoy. ALAN FRANKLIN.
Sir Isaac Newton, discoverer of gravity, thought that atheism was senseless and added: "All variety of created objects which represent order and life in the universe could happen only by the willful reasoning of its original Creator, whom I call the Lord God."
When Socialists like Obama and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown run countries, Christians are in for trouble. In Britain, the crackdown on those who love the Lord gets ever fiercer. In two separate incidents, American gospel singer Don Francisco and a team of 11 young American Christian missionaries were all deported from the UK. It seems that they had fallen foul of new immigration legislation which has specific sections aimed at religious workers. The shape of things to come....ALAN FRANKLIN.
ALAN FRANKLIN writes: A former journalist colleague, Cliff Mogg, just sent me his wonderful collection of reminiscences of 50 years in the media, called: "Don't Quote Me." Cliff is a great reporter and I wish some like him were exposing what's going on in the world today, instead of reprinting press releases. Here's some thoughts on the media from Christina Speight- and a good Telegraph leader.
One fact which proves we are in the End Times is that perversion - like homosexuality - is regarded as "normal," when it is clearly abnormal. We even have alleged "Christian homosexuals" when the Bible clearly condemns all unnatural sexuality. Homosexuals can, of course, be saved and renounce their sin, but that is another story. Here is a look at one aspect of perversion- disease- which the "gay" friendly media will never tell you about. It seems their lives are far from "gay". ALAN FRANKLIN.
New age researcher Constance Cumbey presents this astonishing story on her web radio show. She has disturbing information from a credible source about Barack Obama's possible programming and direction and adds: I will present scientist Tom Fife who will share with us a disturbing conversation he had with a Russian lady in Moscow in 1991. The woman boasted of a man named "Barak" who was half African, half American and being groomed to be president of the USA.
More than five centuries after the expulsion and forced conversion of Spanish and Portuguese Jewry, the results of a new genetic study might just spur a return of historic proportions to Israel and the Jewish people. In a paper published in the latest issue of the American Journal of Human Genetics, a team of biologists dropped a DNA bombshell, declaring that 20% of the population of Iberia has Sephardic Jewish ancestry.
