Looking Behind the Façade


The average person never really bothers to check out who “the man behind the curtain” really is. Just like in the “Wizard of Oz” we are trained to “Pay no attention” to what is behind what we see and are told; but if you do, if you question and seek the truth; the revelation can be quite stunning.

Who is Pat Robertson really? Is he a man of God or a man of sin and a false prophet? In order to answer that question we should look at where he came from, his background. Pat was not the country boy that his image pretends to be but he was the son of a U.S. Congressman and then Senator from Virginia. Absalom Willis Robertson. (1887-1971) He served as U.S. Congressman from March 4, 1933, until November 5, 1946, when he resigned because he had received the nomination for United States Senator; elected on November 5, 1946 and served till 1966.
Interestingly enough during this same time frame another man was climbing the political ladder to power; Prescott Bush, the grandfather of this Antichrist president. Prescott first ran for his Connecticut Senate seat in 1950 but lost. He ran again in 1952 and was successful for the office this time with the help of the Republican sweep of Dwight D Eisenhower, and his mentor and friend Absalom Robertson chairman, Committee on Banking and Currency. (See the “Money Masters”)

Now if you know anything about Prescott, you know that he should have been tried for treason when he and his partner Averell Harriman having formed the Union Bank of New York used it as a money laundering operation to fund Nazi Germany’s war machine.

The backers were names like John D Rockefeller, Henry Ford ( a known racist Nazi) The DuPont family, the Remingtons (making the bullets for the wars) The Carnegies , the Melons, Disney, even Jewish wealth like the Lehmans. These rich powerful industrialists saw Adolph Hitler as a rising political star. Most of these names and families went to the Eastern establishment schools and most importantly Yale. This takes us to “Skull and Bones” Out of this secret society have come many of the rulers and masters of this country and world; leaders in politics, CIA publishing, media, and banking. Well guess what; Pat Robertson also went to Yale and graduated from the Law school in 1955. Robertson with his background and political power was most probably also a member of Skull and Bones but we do not have access to confirm that information. What we do know is that he failed to pass the bar exam, shortly afterward he underwent his “religious conversion”, and decided against pursuing a career in law.
Instead, Robertson attended the New York Theological Seminary, and was awarded a Master of Divinity degree in 1959. In 1960 he started Christian Broadcasting Network with the help of his backers, his brothers from Yale.

Does anyone else see some amazing coincidences? The Robertsons and the Bushes go way back. Perhaps this might help explain how it is that out of one of the worst Law Schools in the country Regent University Law, over one hundred and fifty of its graduates now hold high ranking positions in the Bush Administration.

Unfortunatly this is not just a case of I did you a favor so now you are doing me a favor. This is much more sinister. There is a reason to place those that have been trained and indoctrinated in this mindset and have this loyalty in controlling stations.

I am afraid that it is to further the adjenda of this Neo-Con Jewish/Christian Zionism.
The picture I am trying to paint here is related to the article I did on “The Great Whore” The enemy and the Antichrist have an adjenda. The plan it to bring about “The New World Order”. World domination and Empire. The members of Skull and Bones have had their missions and assigned duties. Robertsons was to discredit Christianity.
This plan goes way back. In 1967 a very interesting article on The Illuminati Agenda was published. You can find it here
It is several pages but well worth the read.
In part 4 we see a very interesting paragraph;
“one of the four specific assignments Rothschild gave Jacob Schiff was to create a movement to destroy religion in the United States with Christianity to be the chief target. For a very obvious reason; the Anti defamation League wouldn't dare to attempt to do it because such an attempt could create the most terrible blood bath in the history of the world; not only for the ADL and the conspirators, but for the millions of innocent Jews.
Schiff turned that job over to Rockefeller for another specific reason. The destruction of Christianity could be accomplished only by those who are entrusted to preserve it. By the pastors; the men of the cloth.”
The Fundamentalists are deceived by him because he seems to use the Word but has not the spirit of Love. They would claim “He preaches the gospel”, but I would say it is not the Gospel of Jesus Christ. When I talk to people about Jesus I have to overcome the damage that Robertson and those of the same spirit and doctrine have done. They are so turned off to what they perceive Christianity to be because of what has been portrayed. It is hard for people to see that this is not the Jesus of the Bible. Fundamentalists would say “He saves souls, He leads people to Christ”. I would tell you for every one they seem to lead to the Lord, they turn off tens of thousands. Mt:23:15: “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.”
Mt:7:15: “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16: Ye shall know them by their fruits.”
Let us have a look at some of the ‘Fruit” After having seed money to start CBN he received pledges from followers that made them members of the “700 Club” As the network grew and other programming was added, viewers soared, making the network very valuable. He bought the network from the non-profit organization for a fraction of what he sold it about a year latter for. He received stock in International Family Entertainment Inc, which was then bought out by Fox Family (News Corp Rupert Murdock or is that Moloch?) The deal was worth more than 80 million to Robertson. He latter took some of those profits and now runs diamond mines in Africa. These are in fact BLOOD DIAMONDS. According to a 1997 article in the Lubbock Avalanche Journal, Robertson’s financial interests in Africa extend to diamond mines. In fact the former chief pilot for Operation Blessing claims that most of the supposedly humanitarian aid flights to Zaire were in fact mining related. Airplanes sent to Zaire by evangelist Pat Robertson's tax-exempt humanitarian organization were used almost exclusively for his diamond mining business, say two pilots who flew them. Three airplanes were flown to Zaire in September 1994 by Operation Blessing. However, chief pilot Robert Hinkle said only one or two of the roughly 40 flights during his six months in the country could be considered humanitarian. All the rest of the flights were mining-related, he told The (Norfolk) Virginia-Pilot. "We hauled medical supplies one time," Hinkle said in a telephone interview. "It might have been about 500 pounds at the most. It was a very minimal amount." The planes were capable of carrying about 7,000 pounds, he said.

Ezek 34:2-3
“Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.”
Not long ago, Robertson called for us to assassinate Hugo Chaves Does this sound like what Jesus taught when he said love your enemies? Chaves is guilty of not supporting “Capitalism”. Perhaps his closest partner was the late Demon Jerry Falwell. Jerry you may remember said In a televised debate on CNN, President Bush should "blow them (the terrorists) all away in the name of the Lord." Now the scary thing is that in January of this year 2007 Pat Robertson said that “God Told Him Of a 2007 Mass Terror Attack” coming sometime in the second half of this year. He suggested that it may be Nuclear. If this happens many will be fooled into believing that he is a true prophet because he heard from God, but the truth is if such a thing happens, and I believe it most probably will, it was not God that told him, but his connections that run deep in this administration.

These creatures that are in control are all bought and paid for. They have sold their souls. 1Tm:6:10: For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Be not deceived. The Day of the Lord is at Hand.

Great post, Peter. May He continue to bless you as you continue to spread the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Hello my friend,

It is good to see your personal touch in conveying the truth. It was Jesus and his disciples that asked we imitate them if we are going to represent the true faith.

Robertson and those like him, who have achieved great wealth while claiming to represent Christianity should be the first clue to others that they do not. When people offered them money and held them on a pedestal they should have vehemently refused, but they have and do not, instead use donation to further their own personal wealth and do so under the pretext that they will do good deeds with the money. I wonder what it is they say when and if they in their careers have ever addressed parts of the bible like this story where Barnabas and Paul have gone to Lystra and preached the gospel truth the people they probably felt were understanding and saw the light, but their bubble would be burst when the people chose to adorn them with lavish gifts of sacrifice and attempted to place them on a pedestal... not only this but the pedestal represented a false belief system that Barnabas and Paul were attempting to release the people...

Acts...

14:12 They began to call Barnabas Zeus and Paul Hermes, because he was the chief speaker. 14:13 The priest of the temple of Zeus, located just outside the city, brought bulls and garlands to the city gates; he and the crowds wanted to offer sacrifices to them. 14:14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard about it, they tore their clothes and rushed out into the crowd, shouting, 14:15 “Men, why are you doing these things? We too are men, with human natures just like you! We are proclaiming the good news to you, so that you should turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and everything that is in them.

Had they conveyed the camel and eye of the needle or the vast other references of the falsehood of material wealth to those people and been understood or not? Either the people were completely misunderstanding the point or they were mocking them and deliberately trying to freak them out. Who knows? What we do know for certain is that Barnabas and Paul absolutely refused... as would all others that believe and understand what the word is conveying.

So, when Robertson and others of his ilk accept the sacrifices they are not only revealing fruits that do not correspond with imitation of Christ or his apostles, but by doing so are leading the people to a false faith. Anything they will have preached becomes remains unseen for what it should be when the peoples misunderstandings are rewarded by the preacher accepting their gifts and glory toward them. That they accept these gifts is revelation of their falsehood and lack of true faith and their willingness to profit while at the same time teaching and feeding belief in lies.

That we are all given the Holy Spirit and should know these wolves when we see them in spite of their masks makes us all responsible for our choices. No one is going to be able to blame these false teachers when they are accepted or denied entry into the Kingdom of God. That they take pride in their adorations of these liars is revelation of their own fruit, as people will follow and uplift that which represents their desires.

True charity and mercy is illustrated in the story of the Good Samaritan, where a beaten and robbed man lay in the middle of the road passed by were two priest from two prominent religions who preached charity and no doubt received many donations to their churches under the pretext that they would do good things, they pass the man by, while the third man from Samaria stops, cleans the mans wounds, takes him to an inn nursing him through the night before leaving the inn keeper with two pieces of silver and instruction to take care of the man and allow him to lodge there until he was well. Never does the man take a bow or ask for anything in return. The Samaritans were shunned by the ruling religions of that time and treated inferior, used as examples to their congregations of what not to be, much like how a religion now will teach that one or the other faith or lack there of is wrong while they are right. As with all of Jesus' teachings it is an important parable. BTW, for those who might not know, Samaria is now "Palestine".

Love you Peter,
Peace

Peter,
Once again the Truth seeks to pierce the darkness. A wonderful post, my friend. Thank you for taking the time to pull aside the curtain and reveal the machinations so many choose to ignore.

It's funny how something like questioning and exploring the true nature of a man as influential as Pat Robertson, never occurs to most people. The "believers" believe despite all evidence of lying and manipulation, and the unbelievers lift up his behavior as an example of the flaws in Christianity. It is men like him, Christian by confession of word only, who are leading the sheep to hell by teaching them greed, hatred and a sense of entitlement. They are the spots and blemishes that this tribulation will remove from the bride of Christ.

It's clear on both sides of the curtain that there is no love in the heart of this wizard of god. At least it's clear if you consider it.

Thank you, Peter, for faithfully covering a foundational subject like Robertson. you have eyes to see, ears to hear, and a heart to share the truth with those who'd hear it. May God continue to bless you.

Hello My Dear Friend....

Peter, you are a well-spring of understanding. I read this post and it just upsets me. To see all these well meaning Christians being deceived; breaks my heart.

As you know, I have one such friend for whom I grieve deeply - he is one of the masses lead astray in order to follow man.

All these good Christians have been brought to kneel and humble themselve before the Republican Party, and whomever it is that happens to be leading it at the time.

All these men, these so-called Christian "leaders", the Jerry Falwells and Pat Robertsons of the world are nothing but modern day pharacies.

If the Lord Christ came back today, in the same manner and condition as he did in his first coming, which would be with all of his power disguised, it would be these men who would be taking him to George W. Bush and saying...."kill him. He's dangerous." It would not be Jews who would do this, it would be "Christians."

And why? Because Jesus is bad for business. They sure as heck like trading on his name all day, but for God's sake (no pun intended) don't hang around, man. It's all very sad adn pathetic.

If these were real men of God - they would be thread bare in their clothes. The would drive small used cars, not Bentleys (such as that driven by Creflo Dollar). If they were real men of God they would not own jets and million dollar homes, as does Benny Hinn, as does the whole host of them. If these people really loved Jesus then Oral Roberts would have named his school Jesus University, nor Oral Roberts University. If they all loved Jesus, then none of their ministries or works would bare their name, but only the name of Christ. If these men really loved God, they would preach his real word, and rebuke George Bush, Dick Cheney, Hillary Clinton, Tony Blair, for their acts of war and the lies that they've told to start them.

But most importantly - if these were real men of God then they would see The Truth of 911, for what is is - a sign from the Lord himself; 911 points to the obviousness of all the lies that we have been told and more importantly, the Lord has used it to point out the liars.

If you love Jesus Christ and you turly wish to serve him, then you must first sever his Truth. The Lord will no longer tolerate these lies. The Lord will no longer tolerate these Satanists. The Lord will no longer Tolerate his son being burned in ephagy every July 16th at the Bohemian Grove; in particulary being burned by people who, outside the Grove, preach their love for him and garner their power and wealth by trading on that name.

The Lord has shown us who these liars are, it is up to all of us now to open our eyes to Gods signs and purpose.


And know this, that Pat Robertson's reckoning is coming, just as sure as Jerry Falwell recieved his. And how do we know Jerry got his? Because the Lord told me of the funny moment when the camel looked at Jerry and said..."buddy, you're not going to make it through that needle".

Follow no man. Follow only the Lord and Trust no book, but the Bible.

You be good Peter. We love and respect you, greatly. The Lord blesses all your work and smiles deep, long and broadly upon you. He loves you much. You are one of his best.

Peace said...

I love how Jesus gives the fruits to look out for...

Luke 20:45 As all the people were listening, Jesus said to his disciples, 20:46 “Beware of the experts in the law. They like walking around in long robes, and they love elaborate greetings in the marketplaces and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets. 20:47 They devour widows’ property, and as a show make long prayers. They will receive a more severe punishment.”

There are many who have never read the bible that still know the above warning. I know this because I knew before ever having read it, but this is all proof of the Holy Spirit and how when Jesus said...

Hebrews 8: I will put my laws in their minds and I will inscribe them on their hearts. And I will be their God and they will be my people. 8:11 “And there will be no need at all for each one to teach his countryman or each one to teach his brother saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ since they will all know me, from the least to the greatest.


John 7:15 Then the Jewish leaders were astonished and said, “How does this man know so much when he has never had formal instruction?” 7:16 So Jesus replied, “My teaching is not from me, but from the one who sent me.

And this is the ability he left us too. We read and see truth in scripture, we rejoice when we see that others see it too, it is confirmation of what we already know from the Holy Spirit. Praise him for this wonderful gift he has bestowed upon us, that by his grace we should be cared about and loved enough for him to have done these things for us. It is truly a pleasure and a blessing to have met each of you that I have.

It might not have happened had I not been asking myself this question... "Is George Bush the Antichrist" putting it into a search to see if anyone else were wondering the same. The question is shared by many and in some cases even by people who claim to not believe in God. Just proof that while they might have given up on God because of the false teachers and others working against the Lord, the Lord has not given up on them, their spirits are in tact. Praise Jesus.

I rattle on, love to all,
Peace

That is how I came here also, Peace. I was wondering if anyone was thinking the same thing about Bush, which is odd in itself alone, and low and behold, there were quite a few and that was in late 2001/2002.

I know I am not looking forward to an economic breakdown that is inevitible, but at least I believe I will be better prepared because my faith and trust is in the Lord Jesus Christ and not this money system like so many others have their faith in. Their fall will be harder.

Upon watching the following YouTube video aside from the subject matter, which is how sound can be used to blow things up and a theory on the fakeness of the planes hitting the buildings on 911... "Aside from this" and not mentioned as a topic in the video, there is a point in which they are using Fox footage showing the impact of a plane on the WTC, do not focus on this aspect... but instead on the three what look to be "Stealth bombers" that come from the lower left. This occurs beginning at "3:10" into the video, you can pause, do frame by frames, watch it over and over... they are clear as day. Go to...

Yes, it is always the shepherds that lead His flock away from the truth.

See the Rense article:
www.rense.com/general20/unholy.htm

Wake up call to those who sit in a pew. Don't be deceived.

Scripture is inspired, not the teachings of men!!

Is there just one Anti-Messiah? Actually -- there are MANY and have been for ages. Nero, Alexander the Great, Antiochus IV Epiphanies, -- even Herod.... those who equate themselves as a deity! I John 2:18 "Little children, it is the last hour. And as you have heard that the anti-messiah is coming, even now MANY anti-messiahs have come. This is how we know that it is the last hour. See also verse 22, 2 John 7.

Actually, according to some research, the Jesuits came up with the dispensational theory and thus the Rapture right at the time that believers were beginning to see the Roman Catholic system was the Beast!

So then, because of the "new doctrine" people started to look for one man to be the BEAST when maybe... it is a SYSTEM -- the great mother harlot and her daughters!! Revelation 17, 18 and Isaiah 47.

The Catholic system is alive and well with its villianous arm - Black Pope and Jesuits!!

Check out Vatican Assassins website.

Yahushua is calling His people to come out of HER (Rev 18:4)-- the Harlot...

Many do not even know they are apart of her system.

Take a look at what Constantine did in 321-325. The original faith of the apostles and disciples was forbidden (anything Jewish was not allowed and now -- Paganism was melded with the truth).

Instead of Passover, Easter was instituted.

Instead of Hannukuh, Christ-mas (the birthday of Ra, Mithra, Tammuz, etc.) is celebrated. It is supposedly the birth of the Savior. Anyone who knows the Scriptures KNOWS the Messiah was born in the fall, mostlikely on one of the Feast dates.

The Sabbath, which is mentioned over 170 times in Scripture, was changed from the 7th day to the 1st day -- the day of the SUN!

Yahuah blessed the 7th day at Creation so it must be pretty important!!

Time to leave Sun worship behind and embrace the true message of Scripture. Let no person deceive you!!

Check out Pat's book, "New World Order."

He is all for the union of Church and state and destruction of our bill of rights.

Also, he is all for the gov't enforcing Sunday as the National Sabbath day.

Bible scholars know that the 7th day is the Sabbath.

Pat Robertson's endorsement of Rudy Giuliani for president is simply astonishing. Robertson - the television preacher who founded the 700 Club and once ran for president himself - has made opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage his political north star and has been a relentless champion of traditional marriage and family values.

Remember Robertson's merciless attacks on President Bill Clinton's lapses of sexual morality with Monica Lewinsky? Or his comments about how the 9/11 attacks were the result of America's tolerance for homosexuals and abortion?

Now Robertson is for Rudy, a thrice-married adulterous husband, who is estranged from his own children and is both pro-choice and pro-gay rights. According to Robertson's twisted moral logic, forgiving the social conservative shortcomings of Republicans is a Christian virtue, so long as the same virtue is never applied to Democrats. But Pat thinks Rudy can beat Hillary, and Pat really cares about winning for the Republicans.

What exactly goes on in Pat Robertson's head has puzzled many of us for a long time. This endorsement ranks as one of the most unprincipled in recent political memory. Maybe principles never mattered much to Pat Robertson after all. Perhaps the pro-business economic conservatism of the Republican Party was always more important to the televangelist than saving unborn lives. Robertson's long-standing support of murderous Liberian dictator Charles Taylor, and his diamond investments thanks to Zairian dictator Mobutu Sese Seko speak louder than words when it comes to Robertson's ethic of life. And that's not to mention the more than $400 million Robertson's empire made when he sold his International Family Network to Rupert Murdoch, after building it on tax-deductible contributions of thousands of CBN donors, many of modest means. He has been putting profits over principles for years.

Richard Land, spokesman for the Southern Baptist Convention, has taken a more consistent position. Land has clearly said that he won't support Giuliani if he becomes the Republican nominee, explaining in a recent Newsweek interview, "I'm not willing or able to violate my moral conscience. It would be like asking an African American to choose between Strom Thurmond and George Wallace, or asking Abe Lincoln to vote for a pro-slavery candidate. I personally can't do it." Land predicts that many social conservatives will just sit out this election if the Republicans decide to run Rudy. That's called standing for principle.

Pat Robertson clearly has taken another position. His endorsement of Rudy Giuliani will seem to many to be unprincipled hypocrisy.

I am so glad I found this blog. I gave up going to church when Bush was reelected b/c I couldn't be like the others - I knew Bush was evil. I started to doubt if I was a real Christian b/c I couldn't think like them - most of my friends are born-again evangelicals (even my mother is) and they are so lost. I can't even argue with them. I'm hoping that by reading these blogs, I will arm myself with some good solid scripture so I can present the truth to them. Thank you so much!

I'm just wondering, do you (any of you) still go to church, and (if you do) how do you deal with being such an outsider?
Cher

PursuingTruth said...

Welcome Cher,
Bless God who has opened your eyes. I would encourage you to learn all you can about what the Bible really says. I have done a number of teaching posts on this blog on numerous subjects. I hope you find them helpful. I would also encourage you to learn about what really happened on 911. You can go to Google Video and put in "Loose Change" (good place to start)
As far as "Church" goes --- We are the church, not a building. We do not go to Church because it takes place "where ever two or three are gathered in my name" Mt:18:20
Isa:66:1: Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? The only house that the Lord is interested in is the Temple which is your body.
We do have house gatherings for teachings and Bible studies. Look for those that God is drawing and like minded people.

Amen, Peter, and welcome Cher. The tension you feel has been felt by us and others around the world. These are dark times, and the darkness will grow greater than it has ever been before on Earth in the next world war. But it's always darkest before the dawn, and we will bear witness to the dawn of Christ's kingly reign on Earth.

As tough as it may be, remember that prophets and apostles yearned to see what we have and will witness. Walk the line to truth, despite the discouragement given by those surrounding you. Pray continually. Be willing to be a fool of God, to suffer ridicule for what you consider valuable and worthwhile. Hopefully God will connect you to others like you in your area.

Your presence is a blessing, and what you've found by these blogs will nourish your spirit. May God bless you and keep you.

Cher (if you are still reading), I will give you one more response to your question of church attendance and being an outsider.

First I would like to say that you are not the outsider; you are an INSIDER since God has revealed these important truths to you. All the world will despise you because it first despised Him and that is why you feel like you are an outsider. Accept and know that your allegiance is first and foremost to God our Father in Heaven and then you will see that it is the rest of the world that is on the outside.

It is always a joy to hear from someone coming to the truth and I hope you will post more of your insights so somebody else might see some light and become an insider as well.

I used to attend church very regularly, but no longer have a want or a desire. Religion and spirituality have little to do with each other usually. You purchase a service at our churches like McDonald's serves a cheeseburger - it taste good now and serves it's immediate purpose, but is it the best thing for you? Probably not. They never tell you it might be harmful later like the churches never want you to fully realize that you can have your very own relationship with God because then you wouldn't need them anymore. Unfortunately, they create a major stumbling block. I now choose to worship and praise God everyday, not just on Sunday, but in my thoughts, words and deeds. I would be comfortable attending my old church or any church because I take God with me everywhere I go and He alone is my shepheard and my strength.

I had an associate pastor tell me the other day that end time discussions are an open-ended conversation. I am still mulling this over in prayer and thought, but my immediate response to him was, 'what do they do to your brains in seminary school?' Fortunately he laughed, but I wanted to plant a seed that maybe they are being controlled by the forces who do not want people to see the truth. If pastors are comfortable staying in denial, then their congregations are also. Denial is detrimental to any truth except this is dire because souls are at stake.

Shine some light in this darkening world and rejoice that you are not an outsider at all in any way - quite the exact opposite.

with love,
faithful forever

One last thought, Cher. The churches have their strengths in numbers, but we have our strength in Him. We both know which strength is more powerful. There are some good things happening in some churches and there are many good people who belong to those churches and don't realize they are being misled and we should always pray for them to seek a relationship with Jesus.

This will really be the last thought - I think!

Like McDonald's wouldn't have any control over you making your own burger instead of purchasing theirs, but they would much prefer that you choose theirs, and they would rather you not figure out that the one you make yourself would be healtier for you and it only requires a little more work on your part, but the outcome is so much more substantially rewarding.

That is my final thought - for now anyway! Thanks for such a great thought-provoking question.
