The ACDP a NAR Political Party?

ACDP – The African Christian Democratic Party – South Africa. One of a few Christian Parties in the Political landscape of SA.
Representing the Voice of the Christian in the SA Political arena.

But are they really Voicing the Christian concern ?

It come to our Attention that the ACDP become a Member of The Global Spheres Incorporated (GSI) . GSI is a Member of Glory of Zion International Ministries from USA With Apostle / Knight of Malta – Chuck Pierce at the head.

Chuck Pierce is a Knight of Malta of the Round Table Free Mason Splinter Group of the Lucifer Trust , a Member of the Templar Knights and Knights of Malta and also a Leader in the New Age Apostolic Reformation Movement.

The False Doctrine of the New Apostolic Reformation Movement

My Question ?

Is the ACDP a NAR Political Movement ? NAR = New Apostolic Reformation Political Party based on the 7 Mountain Mandate Policy of the Knights Templar and Malta Knights?

The NAR we know is a False Doctrine.
An the Knights Templar or Knights of Malta a splinter group of the Lucifer Trust.

In 2016 the ACDP hosted Apostle Chuck Pierce and His team in Parliament. Chuck Pierce is a Templar Knight, Knight of Malta and also a Leader at the NAR = New Apostolic Reformation Movement!

NAR Apostle Chuck Pierce

The Templar Knight Chuck Pierce

During a visit to South Africa in March 2016, US apostolic leader Chuck Pierce prophesied that God would redefine SA over a period of six weeks. But we lodge a Counter Prayer action in blocking this Curse from this Knight of the Knights of Malta.

In a Special Report, a Gateway News Correspondent, who does not want to be named, reports on the March 11 to 13 visit by the president of Glory of Zion International Ministries and Global Spheres and reflects on his prophetic word for SA.

Apostle Chuck Pierce and his team which included Chad Foxworth, Anne Tate, Melinda Richardson, James Vincent and Allen Faubion, recently visited Cape Town where he ministered on Securing the Land: Revealing the Land. The Global Spheres Incorporated (GSI) meeting was hosted by Apostle Pearl Kupe and Dr Maxwell Holland. Apostle Emmanuel Kure, who is the GSI Ambassador for Africa also ministered over the weekend. Cape Town was chosen as it’s the legislative capital of the nation.

Pierce believes that was a time when God was speaking to nations – taking their past to bring it into the present so their future can be established. The trip started with a leadership meeting of about 100 attendees at the National Parliament in Cape Town, hosted by ACDP MP, Steve Swart and his wife Louise Swart.

As Christian I cannot Vote for a Political Party that houses false Doctrines and Occult Groups. As you clearly saw NAR is not a Biblical Movement and so is The Occult Groups like the Templar Knights and Knights of Malta not Biblical.

PROPHECY GIVEN BY CHUCK PIERCE OVER SOUTH AFRICA – 11 March 2016

The “LORD” says

Over these next six weeks I will redefine this land. Even though the enemy will make a great attempt to rise up recreating structures from the past angelic hosts are now on their way. Even though you see on the streets a lot of confusion I will even cause some to fall in the street representing the last season arising. It is now My desire for my glory to rise from the foot of this land of Africa and blow across the land and all nations will watch the workings and going on of My hands in SA. I have chosen this land for now. This role is for now. There will be a divine reversal in CT, in Pretoria, in Johannesburg. There is a movement now to realign this land. Watch as I begin to lead my people. Watch and listen carefully for my word will be heard throughout this land. It will be redefined within the next six weeks and a new covering will come to this land. I have put in motion a movement from heaven now that movement will begin to be seen in the earth realm. I have sovereignly gathered you to a place where a wrong cycle began and I now reverse that cycle, although you have never seen what My glory displays in this land I will begin to display my glory. SA has been destined from decades and I have longed to see a movement, a double fold move of my Spirit, and now it is beginning. In the midst of this place we decree the new identity of SA will now arise.

THE PROPHECIES OF CHUCK PIERCE
OR “INSIDER KNOWLEDGE” ABOUT FUTURE DISASTERS IN THE U.S.
FLORIDA, NEW ORLEANS, BATON ROUGE, HOUSTON, GALVESTON, ST. LOUIS, DETROIT, LOS ANGELES, SAN FRANCISCO
By Barbara Aho

To learn what will happen next — the specific locations and nature of the impending disasters the occult societies have planned for the United States — there’s no better public source of information than the prophecies of Chuck Pierce. These prophecies should be taken seriously, NOT because Chuck Pierce and other self-anointed “apostles” in the U.S. Strategic Prayer Network are prophets of God, but because they have advance insider knowledge of these man-orchestrated events.
“Dr.” Charles Pierce is the President of Glory of Zion International Ministries and Vice President of C. Peter Wagner’s Global Harvest Ministries, which is the umbrella organization over 70 International Prayer Networks. Chuck Pierce is also on the Executive Board of the International Coalition of Apostles, Peter Wagner’s Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders, the International Society of Deliverance Ministers and serves as “National Apostle” of the U.S. Strategic Prayer Network (USSPN).

THE MEROVINGIAN SIGNATURE OF THE HURRICANES cites Chuck Pierce’s “Word over Florida” in February of 2004, in which he prophesied that “waters of breakthrough” would begin in Florida and that these floods would be across the United States by December of 2005. This so-called “prophecy” is coming to pass, so far with stunning accuracy.

As we monitored various newsletters of Peter Wagner’s U.S. Strategic Prayer Network over the year, other “prophecies” by Chuck Pierce were noted to have curious references to specific U.S. cities and states. Turns out that, in 2001, Pierce coauthored a book of such prophecies with Dutch Sheets, titled RELEASING THE PROPHETIC DESTINY OF A NATION (2002). Apostles Pierce and Sheets then went on a 50-state tour to enlist pastors and their churches in a strategic warfare campaign to break the grip of “demonic strongholds” over the United States. Among many spiritual warfare techniques taught by Pierce and Sheets, Christians were directed by these modern apostles to call forth “angels” to bring down the mighty events that are now happening in the U.S.
Chuck Pierce has “prophesied” that the next cities to be struck with major disasters will be: ST. LOUIS, DETROIT, LOS ANGELES and SAN FRANCISCO. These prophecies are found in his books, newsletters and were recently relayed by Pierce on the Benny Hinn program of September 26-27, 2005. There a mesmerized audience of Christian pastors did not seem to question that Chuck Pierce receives these messages from the Lord — a fallacy which presumes that only God can create and direct these destructive forces — and that they are falling on the U.S. as divine judgment and/or spiritual purification.
It is unlikely that the pastors (and the vast majority of Christians) have ever heard that technology has been developed to control the weather, and that this technology, now possessed by the U.S. military, is so advanced that it is possible to create and steer hurricanes, to trigger earthquakes and volcanoes, and to create other seemingly natural catastrophes to bring about an anti-Christian New World Order. For more information on this type of weather control, see THE MEROVINGIAN SIGNATURE OF THE HURRICANES,

We think it is no coincidence that the Global Harvest Ministries of Wagner and Pierce, Dutch Sheets’ Springs Harvest Fellowship and the U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM), which oversees and coordinates all military operations in North America, are all located in Colorado Springs!!! In fact, Colorado Springs is now the home of more than 100 Christian ministries and organizations as well as five military bases: Fort Carson, Peterson Air Force Base, Schriever Air Force Base, The United States Air Force Academy, and NORAD. NORTHCOM is located at Fort Peterson AFB on Cheyenne Mountain which is also a center of Homeland Security Operations. Sometimes called the “military-religious industrial complex of Colorado Springs,” there are many signs that this area is the central command of the military religious Order of the Knights of the Temple, the Knights Templar.
The following is compilation of selected prophecies by Chuck Pierce interspersed with our own commentary on the agenda of the occult establishment from which Pierce clearly receives his information. (End)

Well what worries me is that this “Prophet” was in South Africa and Spoke a Prophecy out over South Africa that will come in effect within the next 5 week from the date of this Article. His History pointing out some Weather or Nature disaster off epic proportions – In his prophecy he spoke of a new covering over the land – and alignment of the Land. This can be anything form manmade Earthquakes like in China , Floods and Weather disasters like Snow – Hail – Floods – Tornados, Tsunamis even Hurricanes.

Yes South Africa never had any of the above as Disasters. Chuck mentioned 3 Major cities in South Africa that may be targeted.
Johannesburg, Cape Town and Pretoria.

AN OVERVIEW OF WEATHER MODIFICATION IN THE USA

Between 1962 and 1983, the United States Navy, the U.S. Weather Bureau and the National Science Foundation carried out an experimental research program that was yielding some success in moderating hurricanes. Project Stormfury was suspended, however, and eventually terminated for specious reasons. Commenting on an overview of The Stormfury Era by the Hurricane Research Division of the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory, Dick Eastman, MS, MA, noted that the privatization of weather-related government agencies was a factor in the termination of this project:
“[Project Stormfury] was discontinued just as new planes for doing the interventions were made available. It seems that we had a deliberate effort to stifle success at the very time that the national weather bureau and other weather-related government agencies were being privatized (the National Weather Service, like the Federal Reserve Bank, the Atomic Energy Commission and the National Science Foundation are privately owned and controlled organizations — each operating in their respective fields in totally unregulated and largely unsupervised environments, with the public thinking that each is part of the government…
“Storm Fury demonstrated — regardless of the sophistry — that hurricane winds can be reduced from 130 mph to 75 or 80 mph — a difference that means the a difference of billions in damages and of doubtless many lives.
“But we are not only seeing the deliberate decision to let disaster happen when it could be prevented — we are seeing something much worse — the deliberate use of this technology developed by minds that sought to help mankind as a means of destroying our homes and killing our people for the sake of ’disaster-industry’ profit and ‘national-emergency’ power.” (1096)
Gordon J. F. MacDonald (1929-2002) was an associate director of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at UCLA, a member of President Lyndon Johnson’s Science Advisory Committee and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. In his 1968 book, Unless Peace Comes: A Scientific Forecast Of New Weapons, MacDonald wrote a chapter titled “How to Wreck the Environment” (read below) in which he revealed that weather modification was in the experimental stages. MacDonald predicted that it would only be a matter of time before man would be able to manipulate the weather for use as a weapon:
“Among future means of obtaining national objectives by force, one possibility hinges on man’s ability to control and manipulate the environment of his planet. When achieved, this power over his environment will provide man with a new force capable of doing great and indiscriminate damage. Our present primitive understanding of deliberate environmental change makes it difficult to imagine a world in which geophysical warfare is practised. Such a world might be one in which nuclear weapons were effectively banned and the weapons of mass destruction were those of environmental catastrophe. As I will argue, these weapons are peculiarly suited for covert or secret wars…
“As economic competition among many advanced nations heightens, it may be to a country’s advantage to ensure a peaceful natural environment for itself and a disturbed environment for its competitors. Operations producing such conditions might be carried out covertly, since nature’s great irregularity permits storms, floods, droughts, earthquakes and tidal waves to be viewed as unusual but not unexpected. Such a ‘secret war’ need never be declared or even known by the affected populations. It could go on for years with only the security forces involved being aware of it. The years of drought and storm would be attributed to unkindly nature and only after a nation were thoroughly drained would an armed take-over be attempted.
“In addition to their covert nature, a feature common to several modification schemes is their ability to affect the Earth as a whole. The environment knows no political boundaries; it is independent of the institutions based on geography and the effects of modification can be projected from any one point to any other on the Earth. Because environmental modification may be a dominant feature of future world decades, there is concern that this incipient technology is in total conflict with many of the traditional geographical and political units and concepts.
“Political, legal, economic and sociological consequences of deliberate environmental modification, even for peaceful purposes, will be of such complexity that perhaps all our present involvements in nuclear affairs will seem simple.”
In his 1970 book, Between Two Ages, former U.S. National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brezezinski (CFR/TC/B) mentioned “weather control” as a “new weapon” for the U.S. military and a “key element of strategy.”
“Technology will make available, to the leaders of major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of the security forces need be appraised… Techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm.”
Also in 1970, the U.S. Weather Bureau was renamed the National Weather Service and the privatization of the weather-related government agencies began, a process that was expedited under President Bill Clinton.
“In accordance with the Administration’s FY 1996 Proposed Budget and the Administration’s Reinventing Government initiatives issued in early 1995, the National Weather Service (NWS) initiated a transition program to transfer NWS Agricultural Weather Services and non-federal non-wildfire weather support to private meteorological firms willing to assume these responsibilities…
“The transition of agricultural weather services to the private sector is dynamic. Both the NWS and the private meteorological sector will need to continue to work together to provide maximum service to the nation’s growers. Privatization efforts are not new to the NWS. Over the years, the NWS has transferred services such as direct commercial radio and television broadcasts, newspaper weather page preparation, and weather by phone successfully to the private sector.” (National Weather Service)
In 1977, the Geneva Convention proposed an international treaty prohibiting the military or other hostile use of environmental modification techniques. The Convention opened for signature on May 18, 1977 in Geneva and the treaty was enforced on October 5, 1978. Eighty-seven (87) nations signed this treaty:

More about the Knights Templar

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article is about the medieval Catholic military order. For other uses, see Knights Templar (disambiguation) and Templar (disambiguation).

Knights Templar
Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon
Pauperes commilitones Christi Templique Salomonici Hierosolymitanis
The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon (Latin: Pauperes commilitones Christi Templique Salomonici), commonly known as the Knights Templar, the Order of Solomon’s Temple (French: Ordre du Temple or Templiers) or simply as Templars, were among the wealthiest and most powerful of the Western Christian military orders[4] and were prominent actors in Christian finance. The organisation existed for nearly two centuries during the Middle Ages.
Officially endorsed by the Roman Catholic Church around 1129, the Order became a favoured charity throughout Christendom and grew rapidly in membership and power. Templar knights, in their distinctive white mantles with a red cross, were among the most skilled fighting units of the Crusades.[5] Non-combatant members of the Order managed a large economic infrastructure throughout Christendom,[6] innovating financial techniques that were an early form of banking,[7][8] and building fortifications across Europe and the Holy Land.

The Templars’ existence was tied closely to the Crusades; when the Holy Land was lost, support for the Order faded. Rumours about the Templars’ secret initiation ceremony created distrust, and King Philip IV of France, deeply in debt to the Order, took advantage of the situation. In 1307, many of the Order’s members in France were arrested, tortured into giving false confessions, and then burned at the stake.[9] Under pressure from King Philip, Pope Clement V disbanded the Order in 1312. The abrupt disappearance of a major part of the European infrastructure gave rise to speculation and legends, which have kept the “Templar” name alive into the modern day.

History
Main article: History of the Knights Templar
Rise
After the First Crusade recaptured Jerusalem in 1099, many Christians made pilgrimages to various Holy Places in the Holy Land. However, though the city of Jerusalem was under relatively secure control, the rest of Outremer was not. Bandits and marauding highwaymen preyed upon pilgrims who were routinely slaughtered, sometimes by the hundreds, as they attempted to make the journey from the coastline at Jaffa into the interior of the Holy Land.[10]
In 1119, the French knight Hugues de Payens approached King Baldwin II of Jerusalem and Warmund, Patriarch of Jerusalem, and proposed creating a monastic order for the protection of these pilgrims. King Baldwin and Patriarch Warmund agreed to the request, probably at the Council of Nablus in January 1120, and the king granted the Templars a headquarters in a wing of the royal palace on the Temple Mount in the captured Al-Aqsa Mosque.[11] The Temple Mount had a mystique because it was above what was believed to be the ruins of the Temple of Solomon.[5][12] The Crusaders therefore referred to the Al Aqsa Mosque as Solomon’s Temple, and from this location the new Order took the name of Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon, or “Templar” knights. The Order, with about nine knights including Godfrey de Saint-Omer and André de Montbard, had few financial resources and relied on donations to survive. Their emblem was of two knights riding on a single horse, emphasising the Order’s poverty.[13]
The first headquarters of the Knights Templar, on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The Crusaders called it the Temple of Solomon and from this location derived their name of Templar.
The impoverished status of the Templars did not last long. They had a powerful advocate in Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, a leading Church figure, the French abbot primarily responsible for the founding of the Cistercian Order of monks and a nephew of André de Montbard, one of the founding knights. Bernard put his weight behind them and wrote persuasively on their behalf in the letter ‘In Praise of the New Knighthood’,[14][15] and in 1129, at the Council of Troyes, he led a group of leading churchmen to officially approve and endorse the Order on behalf of the Church. With this formal blessing, the Templars became a favoured charity throughout Christendom, receiving money, land, businesses, and noble-born sons from families who were eager to help with the fight in the Holy Land. Another major benefit came in 1139, when Pope Innocent II’s papal bull Omne Datum Optimum exempted the Order from obedience to local laws. This ruling meant that the Templars could pass freely through all borders, were not required to pay any taxes, and were exempt from all authority except that of the pope.[16]
With its clear mission and ample resources, the Order grew rapidly. Templars were often the advance shock troops in key battles of the Crusades, as the heavily armoured knights on their warhorses would set out to charge at the enemy, ahead of the main army bodies, in an attempt to break opposition lines. One of their most famous victories was in 1177 during the Battle of Montgisard, where some 500 Templar knights helped several thousand infantry to defeat Saladin’s army of more than 26,000 soldiers.[17]
A Templar Knight is truly a fearless knight, and secure on every side, for his soul is protected by the armour of faith, just as his body is protected by the armour of steel. He is thus doubly armed, and need fear neither demons nor men.”
Bernard de Clairvaux, c. 1135,
De Laude Novae Militae—In Praise of the New Knighthood[18]
Although the primary mission of the Order was military, relatively few members were combatants. The others acted in support positions to assist the knights and to manage the financial infrastructure. The Templar Order, though its members were sworn to individual poverty, was given control of wealth beyond direct donations. A nobleman who was interested in participating in the Crusades might place all his assets under Templar management while he was away. Accumulating wealth in this manner throughout Christendom and the Outremer, the Order in 1150 began generating letters of credit for pilgrims journeying to the Holy Land: pilgrims deposited their valuables with a local Templar preceptory before embarking, received a document indicating the value of their deposit, then used that document upon arrival in the Holy Land to retrieve their funds in an amount of treasure of equal value. This innovative arrangement was an early form of banking and may have been the first formal system to support the use of cheques; it improved the safety of pilgrims by making them less attractive targets for thieves, and also contributed to the Templar coffers.[5][19]
Based on this mix of donations and business dealing, the Templars established financial networks across the whole of Christendom. They acquired large tracts of land, both in Europe and the Middle East; they bought and managed farms and vineyards; they built massive stone cathedrals and castles; they were involved in manufacturing, import and export; they had their own fleet of ships; and at one point they even owned the entire island of Cyprus. The Order of the Knights Templar arguably qualifies as the world’s first multinational corporation.[17][20][21]
Decline
Battle of the Horns of Hattin in 1187, the turning point in the Crusades
In the mid-12th century, the tide began to turn in the Crusades. The Muslim world had become more united under effective leaders such as Saladin, and dissension arose amongst Christian factions in, and concerning, the Holy Land. The Knights Templar were occasionally at odds with the two other Christian military orders, the Knights Hospitaller and the Teutonic Knights, and decades of internecine feuds weakened Christian positions, both politically and militarily. After the Templars were involved in several unsuccessful campaigns, including the pivotal Battle of the Horns of Hattin, Jerusalem was recaptured by Muslim forces under Saladin in 1187. The Crusaders regained the city in 1229, without Templar aid, but held it only briefly. In 1244, the Khwarezmi Turks recaptured Jerusalem, and the city did not return to Western control until 1917 when the British captured it from the Ottoman Turks in World War I.[22]
The Templars were forced to relocate their headquarters to other cities in the north, such as the seaport of Acre, which they held for the next century. It was lost in 1291, followed by their last mainland strongholds, Tortosa (Tartus in what is now Syria) and Atlit in present-day Israel. Their headquarters then moved to Limassol on the island of Cyprus,[23] and they also attempted to maintain a garrison on tiny Arwad Island, just off the coast from Tortosa. In 1300, there was some attempt to engage in coordinated military efforts with the Mongols[24] via a new invasion force at Arwad. In 1302 or 1303, however, the Templars lost the island to the Egyptian Mamluks in the Siege of Arwad. With the island gone, the Crusaders lost their last foothold in the Holy Land.[17][25]
With the Order’s military mission now less important, support for the organization began to dwindle. The situation was complex, however, since during the two hundred years of their existence, the Templars had become a part of daily life throughout Christendom.[26] The organization’s Templar Houses, hundreds of which were dotted throughout Europe and the Near East, gave them a widespread presence at the local level.[3] The Templars still managed many businesses, and many Europeans had daily contact with the Templar network, such as by working at a Templar farm or vineyard, or using the Order as a bank in which to store personal valuables. The Order was still not subject to local government, making it everywhere a “state within a state”—its standing army, though it no longer had a well-defined mission, could pass freely through all borders. This situation heightened tensions with some European nobility, especially as the Templars were indicating an interest in founding their own monastic state, just as the Teutonic Knights had done in Prussia[19] and the Knights Hospitaller were doing in Rhodes.[27]

Arrests, charges and dissolution
In 1305, the new Pope Clement V, based in Avignon, France, sent letters to both the Templar Grand Master Jacques de Molay and the Hospitaller Grand Master Fulk de Villaret to discuss the possibility of merging the two Orders. Neither was amenable to the idea, but Pope Clement persisted, and in 1306 he invited both Grand Masters to France to discuss the matter. De Molay arrived first in early 1307, but de Villaret was delayed for several months. While waiting, De Molay and Clement discussed criminal charges that had been made two years earlier by an ousted Templar and were being discussed by King Philip IV of France and his ministers. It was generally agreed that the charges were false, but Clement sent the king a written request for assistance in the investigation. According to some historians, King Philip, who was already deeply in debt to the Templars from his war with the English, decided to seize upon the rumors for his own purposes. He began pressuring the Church to take action against the Order, as a way of freeing himself from his debts.[28] The French king’s motivations went beyond merely financial though.
Convent of Christ Castle in Tomar, Portugal. Built in 1160 as a stronghold for the Knights Templar, it became the headquarters of the renamed Order of Christ. In 1983, it was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.[29]
At dawn on Friday, 13 October 1307 (a date sometimes linked with the origin of the Friday the 13th superstition)[30][31] King Philip IV ordered de Molay and scores of other French Templars to be simultaneously arrested. The arrest warrant started with the phrase: “Dieu n’est pas content, nous avons des ennemis de la foi dans le Royaume” [“God is not pleased. We have enemies of the faith in the kingdom”].[32] Claims were made that during Templar admissions ceremonies, recruits were forced to spit on the Cross, deny Christ, and engage in indecent kissing; brethren were also accused of worshiping idols, and the order was said to have encouraged homosexual practices.[33] The Templars were charged with numerous other offences such as financial corruption, fraud, and secrecy.[34] Many of the accused confessed to these charges under torture, and these confessions, even though obtained under duress, caused a scandal in Paris. The prisoners were coerced to confess that they had spat on the Cross: “Moi, Raymond de La Fère, 21 ans, reconnais que [j’ai] craché trois fois sur la Croix, mais de bouche et pas de cœur” (free translation: “I, Raymond de La Fère, 21 years old, admit that I have spat three times on the Cross, but only from my mouth and not from my heart”). The Templars were accused of idolatry and were suspected of worshipping either a figure known as Baphomet or a mummified severed head they recovered, amongst other artifacts, at their original headquarters on the Temple Mount that many scholars theorize might have been that of John the Baptist, among other things.[35]

Relenting to Phillip’s demands, Pope Clement then issued the papal bull Pastoralis Praeeminentiae on 22 November 1307, which instructed all Christian monarchs in Europe to arrest all Templars and seize their assets.[36] Pope Clement called for papal hearings to determine the Templars’ guilt or innocence, and once freed of the Inquisitors’ torture, many Templars recanted their confessions. Some had sufficient legal experience to defend themselves in the trials, but in 1310, having appointed the archbishop of Sens, Philippe de Marigny, to lead the investigation, Philip blocked this attempt, using the previously forced confessions to have dozens of Templars burned at the stake in Paris.[37][38][39]
With Philip threatening military action unless the pope complied with his wishes, Pope Clement finally agreed to disband the Order, citing the public scandal that had been generated by the confessions. At the Council of Vienne in 1312, he issued a series of papal bulls, including Vox in excelso, which officially dissolved the Order, and Ad providam, which turned over most Templar assets to the Hospitallers.[40]

Templars being burned at the stake.
As for the leaders of the Order, the elderly Grand Master Jacques de Molay, who had confessed under torture, retracted his confession. Geoffroi de Charney, Preceptor of Normandy, also retracted his confession and insisted on his innocence. Both men were declared guilty of being relapsed heretics, and they were sentenced to burn alive at the stake in Paris on 18 March 1314. De Molay reportedly remained defiant to the end, asking to be tied in such a way that he could face the Notre Dame Cathedral and hold his hands together in prayer.[41] According to legend, he called out from the flames that both Pope Clement and King Philip would soon meet him before God. His actual words were recorded on the parchment as follows : “Dieu sait qui a tort et a péché. Il va bientot arriver malheur à ceux qui nous ont condamnés à mort” (free translation : “God knows who is wrong and has sinned. Soon a calamity will occur to those who have condemned us to death”).[32] Pope Clement died only a month later, and King Philip died in a hunting accident before the end of the year.[42][43][44]
With the last of the Order’s leaders gone, the remaining Templars around Europe were either arrested and tried under the Papal investigation (with virtually none convicted), absorbed into other military orders such as the Knights Hospitaller, or pensioned off and allowed to live out their days peacefully. By papal decree, the property of the Templars was transferred to the Order of Hospitallers, which also absorbed many of the Templars’ members. In effect, the dissolution of the Templars could be seen as the merger of the two rival orders.[45] Some may have fled to other territories outside Papal control, such as excommunicated Scotland or to Switzerland. Templar organizations in Portugal simply changed their name, from Knights Templar to Knights of Christ.[46]

Chinon Parchment
Main article: Chinon Parchment
In September 2001, a document known as the “Chinon Parchment” dated 17–20 August 1308 was discovered in the Vatican Secret Archives by Barbara Frale, apparently after having been filed in the wrong place in 1628. It is a record of the trial of the Templars and shows that Clement absolved the Templars of all heresies in 1308 before formally disbanding the Order in 1312,[47] as did another Chinon Parchment dated 20 August 1308 addressed to Philip IV of France, also mentioning that all Templars that had confessed to heresy were “restored to the Sacraments and to the unity of the Church”. This other Chinon Parchment has been well-known to historians,[48][49][50] having been published by Étienne Baluze in 1693[51] and by Pierre Dupuy in 1751.[52]
The current position of the Roman Catholic Church is that the medieval persecution of the Knights Templar was unjust, that nothing was inherently wrong with the Order or its Rule, and that Pope Clement was pressed into his actions by the magnitude of the public scandal and by the dominating influence of King Philip IV, who was Clement’s relative.[53][54]

Organization
Main article: List of Knights Templar

The Templars were organized as a monastic order similar to Bernard’s Cistercian Order, which was considered the first effective international organization in Europe.[55] The organizational structure had a strong chain of authority. Each country with a major Templar presence (France, Poitou, Anjou, Jerusalem, England, Aragon, Portugal, Italy, Tripoli, Antioch, Hungary, and Croatia)[56] had a Master of the Order for the Templars in that region.
All of them were subject to the Grand Master, appointed for life, who oversaw both the Order’s military efforts in the East and their financial holdings in the West. The Grand Master exercised his authority via the visitors-general of the order, who were knights specially appointed by the Grand Master and convent of Jerusalem to visit the different provinces, correct malpractices, introduce new regulations, and resolve important disputes. The visitors-general had the power to remove knights from office and to suspend the Master of the province concerned.
No precise numbers exist, but it is estimated that at the Order’s peak there were between 15,000 and 20,000 Templars, of whom about a tenth were actual knights.[2][3]
Ranks within the order

Three main ranks
There was a threefold division of the ranks of the Templars: the noble knights, the non-noble sergeants, and the chaplains. The Templars did not perform knighting ceremonies, so any knight wishing to become a Knight Templar had to be a knight already.[57] They were the most visible branch of the order, and wore the famous white mantles to symbolise their purity and chastity.[58] They were equipped as heavy cavalry, with three or four horses and one or two squires. Squires were generally not members of the Order but were instead outsiders who were hired for a set period of time. Beneath the knights in the Order and drawn from non-noble families were the sergeants.[59] They brought vital skills and trades such as blacksmithing and building, and administered many of the Order’s European properties. In the Crusader States, they fought alongside the knights as light cavalry with a single horse.[60] Several of the Order’s most senior positions were reserved for sergeants, including the post of Commander of the Vault of Acre, who was the de facto Admiral of the Templar fleet. The sergeants wore black or brown. From 1139, chaplains constituted a third Templar class. They were ordained priests who cared for the Templars’ spiritual needs.[45] All three classes of brother wore the Order’s red cross.[61]

Grand Masters
Main article: Grand Masters of the Knights Templar

Starting with founder Hugues de Payens in 1118–1119, the Order’s highest office was that of Grand Master, a position which was held for life, though considering the martial nature of the Order, this could mean a very short tenure. All but two of the Grand Masters died in office, and several died during military campaigns. For example, during the Siege of Ascalon in 1153, Grand Master Bernard de Tremelay led a group of 40 Templars through a breach in the city walls. When the rest of the Crusader army did not follow, the Templars, including their Grand Master, were surrounded and beheaded.[62] Grand Master Gérard de Ridefort was beheaded by Saladin in 1189 at the Siege of Acre.

The Grand Master oversaw all of the operations of the Order, including both the military operations in the Holy Land and Eastern Europe and the Templars’ financial and business dealings in Western Europe. Some Grand Masters also served as battlefield commanders, though this was not always wise: several blunders in de Ridefort’s combat leadership contributed to the devastating defeat at the Battle of Hattin. The last Grand Master was Jacques de Molay, burned at the stake in Paris in 1314 by order of King Philip IV.[39]

Behaviour, clothing and beards
Representation of a Knight Templar
Bernard de Clairvaux and founder Hugues de Payens devised the specific code of behaviour for the Templar Order, known to modern historians as the Latin Rule. Its 72 clauses defined the ideal behaviour for the Knights, such as the types of garments they were to wear and how many horses they could have. Knights were to take their meals in silence, eat meat no more than three times per week, and not have physical contact of any kind with women, even members of their own family. A Master of the Order was assigned “4 horses, and one chaplain-brother and one clerk with three horses, and one sergeant brother with two horses, and one gentleman valet to carry his shield and lance, with one horse.”[63] As the Order grew, more guidelines were added, and the original list of 72 clauses was expanded to several hundred in its final form.[64][65]

The knights wore a white surcoat with a red cross and a white mantle also with a red cross; the sergeants wore a black tunic with a red cross on the front and a black or brown mantle.[66][67] The white mantle was assigned to the Templars at the Council of Troyes in 1129, and the cross was most probably added to their robes at the launch of the Second Crusade in 1147, when Pope Eugenius III, King Louis VII of France, and many other notables attended a meeting of the French Templars at their headquarters near Paris.[68][69][70] According to their Rule, the knights were to wear the white mantle at all times, even being forbidden to eat or drink unless they were wearing it.[71]

One of the many reported flags of the Knights Templar
The red cross that the Templars wore on their robes was a symbol of martyrdom, and to die in combat was considered a great honour that assured a place in heaven.[72] There was a cardinal rule that the warriors of the Order should never surrender unless the Templar flag had fallen, and even then they were first to try to regroup with another of the Christian orders, such as that of the Hospitallers. Only after all flags had fallen were they allowed to leave the battlefield.[73] This uncompromising principle, along with their reputation for courage, excellent training, and heavy armament, made the Templars one of the most feared combat forces in medieval times.[74]

Although not prescribed by the Templar Rule, it later became customary for members of the order to wear long and prominent beards. In about 1240, Alberic of Trois-Fontaines described the Templars as an “order of bearded brethren”; while during the interrogations by the papal commissioners in Paris in 1310–11, out of nearly 230 knights and brothers questioned, 76 are described as wearing a beard, in some cases specified as being “in the style of the Templars”, and 133 are said to have shaved off their beards, either in renunciation of the order or because they had hoped to escape detection.[75][76]

Initiation,[77] known as Reception (receptio) into the Order, was a profound commitment and involved a solemn ceremony. Outsiders were discouraged from attending the ceremony, which aroused the suspicions of medieval inquisitors during the later trials. New members had to willingly sign over all of their wealth and goods to the Order and take vows of poverty, chastity, piety, and obedience.[78] Most brothers joined for life, although some were allowed to join for a set period. Sometimes a married man was allowed to join if he had his wife’s permission,[67] but he was not allowed to wear the white mantle.[79]

Legacy

Temple Church, London. As the chapel of the New Temple in London, it was the location for Templar initiation ceremonies. In modern times it is the parish church of the Middle and Inner Temples, two of the Inns of Court, and a popular tourist attraction.
With their military mission and extensive financial resources, the Knights Templar funded a large number of building projects around Europe and the Holy Land. Many of these structures are still standing. Many sites also maintain the name “Temple” because of centuries-old association with the Templars.[80] For example, some of the Templars’ lands in London were later rented to lawyers, which led to the names of the Temple Bar gateway and the Temple Underground station. Two of the four Inns of Court which may call members to act as barristers are the Inner Temple and Middle Temple.
Distinctive architectural elements of Templar buildings include the use of the image of “two knights on a single horse”, representing the Knights’ poverty, and round buildings designed to resemble the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.[81]

Modern organizations

Main article: Knights Templar and popular culture
The story of the persecution and sudden dissolution of the secretive yet powerful medieval Templars has drawn many other groups to use alleged connections with the Templars as a way of enhancing their own image and mystery.[82] There is no clear historical connection between the Knights Templar, which were dismantled in the Rolls of the Catholic Church in 1309 with the martyrdom of Jacques de Molay, and any of the modern organizations, of which, except for the Scottish Order, the earliest emerged publicly in the 18th century.[83][84][85][86] There is often public confusion and many overlook the 400-year gap. However, in 1853, Napoleon III officially recognised the OSMTH. The Order operates on the basis of the traditions of the medieval Knights Templar, celebrating the spirit of, but not claiming direct descent from the ancient Order founded by Hugues de Payens in 1118 and dissolved by Pope Clement V in 1312.

Freemasonry
Main article: Knights Templar (Freemasonry)
Since at least the 18th century,[5] Freemasonry has incorporated symbols and rituals of several Medieval military orders in a number of Masonic bodies, most notably, in the “Red Cross of Constantine” (derived from the Military Constantinian Order), the “Order of Malta” (derived from the Sovereign Military Order of Malta), and the “Order of the Temple”, the latter two featuring prominently in the York Rite. One theory of the origins of Freemasonry claims direct descent from the historical Knights Templar through its final fourteenth-century members who took refuge in Scotland whose King, Robert the Bruce was excommunicated by the Roman Catholic Church at the time, or in Portugal where the order changed its name to Knights of Christ, other members having joined Knights of St. John. There have even been claims that some of the Templars who made it to Scotland contributed to the Scots’ victory at Bannockburn. This theory is usually deprecated on grounds of lack of evidence, by both Masonic authorities[87] and historians.[88]
The penalty of excommunication for joining the Masonic Lodge was explicit in the 1917 code of canon law (canon 2335), and it is implicit in the 1983 code (canon 1374). Because the revised code of canon law is not explicit on this point, some drew the mistaken conclusion that the Church’s prohibition of Freemasonry had been dropped. As a result of this confusion, shortly before the 1983 code was promulgated, the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith issued a statement indicating that the penalty was still in force. This statement was dated 26 November 1983 and may be found in Origins 13/27 (Nov. 15, 1983), 450.[89]

Modern popular culture
Main article: Knights Templar in popular culture
Based on Freemasonic speculation and popular literature since the 19th century, the Templars and associated “legends” or “mysteries” have become a common trope in modern pop culture.
Beginning in the 1960s, there have been speculative popular publications surrounding the Order’s early occupation of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and speculation about what relics the Templars may have found there, such as the Holy Grail or the Ark of the Covenant,[90] or the historical accusation of idol worship (Baphomet) transformed into a context of “witchcraft”.[91]
The association of the Holy Grail with the Templars has precedents even in 12th century fiction; Wolfram von Eschenbach’s Parzival calls the knights guarding the Grail Kingdom templeisen, apparently a conscious fictionalisation of the templarii.[92]
Modern fictionalisation of the Templars begins with Ivanhoe, the 1820 novel by Walter Scott, where the villain Sir Brian de Bois-Guilbert is a “Templar Knight”.
The popular treatment of the Templars as a topic of esotericist “legend” and “mystery” begins in the later 20th century. The historical novel series Les Rois maudits (1955–1977) by Maurice Druon depicts the death of the last Grand Master of the Order, and plays with the legend of the curse he laid on the pope, Philip the Fair and Guillaume de Nogaret. Esotericist treatments become common in the 1980s. Among them, the 1982 The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail would prove most influential.
The 1988 novel by Umberto Eco Foucault’s Pendulum satirizes the presentation of the Templars in esotericist or pseudohistorical conspiracy theories. A revival of the 1980s themes took place in the 2000s due to the commercial success of The Da Vinci Code, the 2003 novel by Dan Brown (adapted into a film version in 2006).
The Michoacán-based Mexican criminal organization of The Knights Templar Cartel are named after the order and have based some of their iconography on it, including the appearance of medieval knights on the cover of their manifesto and code of conduct.
In the video game series Assassin’s Creed, the Templars are the antagonists who have waged a war against an organization called the Assassins.

THE UNITED STATES / FLORIDA
Transformation of America Conference – Awaken the Nation
February 19, 2004
Portion of Chuck Pierce’s “word over Florida” at TRANSFORMATION AMERICA – Awaken the Nation, Thursday, February 19, 2004:
“I am mounting up the waters of breakthrough for this nation. I have brought you here to this state because part of the mounting up of the waters is coming this hour from this particular state. I have gathered you together here because from this state you will cause the waters to rise again. Many will try to put their finger in this water just as the boy who tried to hold back the water stuck his finger in the dike, but I would say this water that is mounting over this nation cannot be stopped.
“There is a mounting enemy that is rising up at this time. Therefore I have drawn you together for a day such as this. In this place and at this time I will release an anointing that will cause the enemy that is mounting to become confused. The voice of the enemy will taunt, and taunt, and taunt again. The voice of the enemy will become very strong beginning in September through October. But even now that which you release in the heavens will begin to neutralize that which will come forth at harvest time.
“Harvest time is upon you, and because harvest time is mounting I must have a people with a harvest mind. I have brought you here to bring forth the first fruit of that harvest anointing, and to cause your mind to shift into a mind of increase. Many have come and said, ‘But the enemy has surrounded me and besieged me. I even feel like I am in a strait jacket.’ During these days I will untie that strait jacket and your hands will go free.
“Hear the sound as the waters mount up, for the waters are mounting and the wall that is being built against My righteousness is cracking. And within 22 months there will be floods across this land.”
[MEANING THE U.S. . . by December 2005! It seems the U.S. will be become the New Atlantis, literally. Which gives new meaning to the “Oceania” theme in the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games. Or “Oceania” in Orwell’s “1984”. In 1856, the American poet Walt Whitman wrote to his fellow occultist, Ralph Waldo Emerson, that the United States is a “work in progress” which would have to die for the Masonic Plan of world conquest to come to pass:
“America, having duly conceived, bears out of herself offspring of her own to do the workmanship wanted. To freedom, to strength, to poems, to personal greatness, it is never permitted to rest, not a generation or part of a generation. To be ripe beyond further increase is to prepare to die. The architects of These States laid their foundations, and passed to further, spheres. What they laid is a work done; as much more remains. Now are needed other architects, whose duty is not less difficult, but perhaps more difficult. Each age forever needs architects. America is not finished, perhaps never will be; now America is a divine true sketch. There are Thirty-Two States sketched—the population thirty millions. In a few years there will be Fifty States. Again in a few years there will be A Hundred States, the population hundreds of millions, the freshest and freest of men. Of course such men stand to nothing less than the freshest and freest expression.” (Leaves of Grass, 1856)]

BATON ROUGE / NEW ORLEANS / MISSOURI
Dear Leaders:

In late August I was in Louisiana for a series of meetings promoted by Roger and Charlotte Merschbrock (our USSPN State Apostolic Coordinators for Louisiana) along with Larry and Brenda Bizette. Several of the prophetic words I released might be of particular interest to you at this time with the approach of Hurricane Ivan.

Blessings,
Chuck D. Pierce

August 29, 2004

After Chuck discussed traveling from Wisconsin directly to Louisiana, he prophesied:

“From the North to the South I am ready to awaken two winds that will awake the nation. There are resisting forces in both states that will cause our nation to not move forward. Go up and down and decree the wind of God will awaken in both places. The states will shift in a new way or the nation will not shift and will go backwards.”

Later when addressing the Saul structure in Baton Rouge
Chuck prophesied:

“How the Saul structure collapses will bring Baton Rouge again to national attention. That alignment within it will collapse. A new demonstration with a new blueprint will be seen. This will be known as a meeting house. This will be known as a place where the Ark of the Covenant has dwelt. This will be known as a refuge place. The WIND and WATER will rise in the midst of New Orleans. Many from the south will come north for refuge. Prepare. Prepare now for winds and water that will surprise you. I will renew the pattern not fully seen before. Worship will be here, and birthed in a new way from here. Prepare! Prepare! Prepare! Shift! Saul will be no more. [Blanco out] David will arise from this day forward. [Jewish governor] The wind from the south will begin to blow. Watch for the effects. This will purify the land and bring great change.” [Katrina means “purify”]

[New Orleans is now called “Baghdad on the Bayou,” being under total militarization. Will Baton Rouge be the next federally militarized city? There do seem to be big plans in the works for Baton Rouge—a new demonstration . . . a new blueprint . . . will be known as a ‘meeting house’ . . . a place where the Ark of the Covenant has dwelt . . . as a refuge place . . . Saul will be no more. David will arise . . . worship will be there . . . birthed in a new way . . . This mixing of military and Biblical metaphors is confusing. What does Chuck Pierce really mean?? We know the Ark of the Covenant contained the LAW, so perhaps he is referring to the Noahide Laws. In a Biblical context, the term “meeting house” sounds like the “Tent of Meeting” as the NIV renders the Tabernacle in the book of Exodus. The KJV, however, correctly calls it the “tent of the congregation” (no caps). “Meeting” instead of “congregation” seems a little too much like what we saw on TV at NORTHCOM during Hurricane Rita. Strategy meetings, not worship, although CP says there will be worship, “birthed in a new way” however. So he could be using Biblical jargon to create a religious covering for the military takeover of a U.S. state capital. If so, Baton Rouge will have the dubious honor of becoming the first central command for that soon-to-be militarized region of the U.S. under NORTHCOM. One Watchman made a good case for how the Feds will justify declaring martial law in Baton Rouge:

9/29/05 – “Baton Rouge now has three times the population from all those who came from New Orleans. Things are very hectic and stressful there; food and gas shortages, etc. I wouldn’t doubt that they would like to cause Blanco more stress. If there is an uprising, it may begin in Baton Rouge. There may be more significance to Baton Rouge than we can see right now. It is the capital of the state, and also has it’s own very large population of poor blacks even before the evacuees arrived by the tens of thousands. It is about 70-80 miles from New Orleans…and it’s Crawling with Military right now. They already say that Blanco and the LA government are incompetent, so this [an uprising] would give them the perfect excuse to take over their entire state government.”]

Then in Alexandria that night Chuck shared from Song of Solomon 4:16 (Awake the north wind; come, o south wind. Blow upon the garden of this nation).
He led the people to pray for the south wind to come. This south wind would be a purifying wind, cause corruption to be blown on and cause corruption to shake and initiate a righteous move starting with the children, then moving to the youth. We were to watch the government and the Catholic Church shake [Mystery Babylon/Rev.17:9], and watch New Orleans change.

Then Chuck prophesied, “I will put a mantle on African Americans in this land. That which was brought in through parts of this state and held people captive will let go. I will send the wind up the Mississippi River and this wind will shake Missouri. You will see the land shake in Missouri because of the wind from Louisiana. [earthquake on the New Madrid Fault] Get ready. Don’t brace yourself. Throw yourself up. Get ready for the new is coming. Every place I blow on will shake. The wind is coming on Louisiana and it will shake the entire state. I will fill churches. The south purifying wind of My holiness will sweep across Louisiana. People will be on their faces in malls and shopping centers. Boldness will come upon My people in Louisiana. There is a worship call. Get ready – the wind is about to blow. The river is changing courses. You will be one of the first that changes.”

[California and Alaska are reputed to be the locations where most U.S. earthquakes occur, however, the most powerful earthquakes ever recorded in North America have been along the New Madrid Fault in the Central U.S. In 1811-12 there were 4 catastrophic quakes within a 3 month period, which were estimated to have been about 8.0 and higher if measured on the modern Richter Scale. Estimates of approximately 6.0-6.2 earthquakes along this fault occurred in 1843 and 1895 respectively, as well as 7 quakes over 5.0. At the time of the 1811-12 earthquakes, St. Louis, MO and other major cities along the fault line were sparsely populated, but an 8.0 quake in 2005 or later would result in enormous loss of life and billions of dollars of property damage. The New Madrid Fault straddles the Mississippi River from northeast Arkansas, through southeast Missouri, western Tennessee, western Kentucky to southern Illinois. A major earthquake along this fault line would therefore divide the U.S. laterally and disable ground transportation between the Eastern and Western states. Since the Eastern states are heavily dependent on agricultural commodities produced in the West, Mexico and South America, their lifeline would be severed when the bridges crossing the Mississippi River collapse. In fact, all of the so-called natural disasters that are now occurring in the U.S. are strategically located to paralyze the transportation systems of the nation.]

HOUSTON / GALVESTON
Chuck Pierce / Letter to Intercessors
September 21, 2005
“On February 20, 2005, I spoke in Houston. Here is a portion of the word that came forth: ‘Houston is a target for the enemy because you are a great city, a great port, a great city for revival, a great city for commerce. You are like Tyre in the Bible. There is a crisis coming toward Houston that will move the city into a different dimension of God’s presence.’
“And the Lord said to me, ‘Houston is going to be a place where My angels [evil spirits] are flooding in this year. They are going to flood in, and come in through every gate this year. [Judges 5:8] My angels are coming in through the port areas of Houston. Go to every port point this year and invite the angelic forces in. [Christians inviting chaotic spirits into Houston] If you will do that over the next ten months you will see change by the end of the year all across the city. [huge energy crisis] I am ready for the angels to come in.
[Chuck Pierce is teaching ritual magic, summoning chaotic spirits to wreak massive destruction on the United States. See “Strategic Level Sorcery.” Cf. George Bush Inaugural Address: “Do you not think an Angel rides in the Whirlwind and directs this Storm?… This work continues. {the American Revolution} The story goes on. And an angel still rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm.”]
“I have chosen Houston as the port city where I will rest My presence in the midst of a strange happening in this nation. I will cause My presence to be established in this city. [another militarized city] I will cause enemies of My Spirit who have resisted My presence in the past to welcome My presence this year.’ [Republic of Texas is part of the controlled-opposition militia movement]
“The Lord then said, ‘There’s a shift that’s gone on here. You’ve shifted. You are (now) moving from a heavenly realm. You have moved out of a vacuum of unbelief. It wasn’t darkness – it was a void – something that has been confused, that had no form, that looked like it would remain formless from now until a future time. You’ve moved that out of the atmosphere here. Now you have brought into the atmosphere a faith dimension that has restored My covenant back to My people in this city.’ [Noahide Laws?] (The Lord then said that Houston would shift in July.) ‘Prepare yourself, for you will influence the nation in a time of crisis. You’ve endured the testing of covenant with each other. You’ve watched each other make horrible mistakes and yet you covenant with Me, and My blood has overcome those mistakes. You have watched some let go of things. You watched some go in wrong directions. But I’ve brought it back full circle. You have watched certain things end. Don’t judge how they ended; I was ending certain things so I can begin again. You have endured a covenant-breaking structure that has resisted My move in this city. You have endured and prevailed against a covenant-breaking spirit that overcame past generations. Now you have overcome that spirit. Just as Moses made a mistake and I restored his call, I’ve now come back full circle and said, ‘Now it’s My Time!’ Follow Me in a new way, confront your enemies in a new way, (and) move forward in a new way. For I am going to rest in the city … and you will know My Presence has come to rest in this city.’ [Houston learned from New Orleans/LA officials to cooperate with the Feds]
“The Lord also said, ‘And you will know I’m going to shake Galveston in a way that it has not been shaken since the beginning of the last century. But this is a time for Me to come full circle. And this time, Galveston will begin to run forward into My presence in Houston. And that which is resisting My presence in Galveston will be overtaken. I am raising up the Body in Houston to receive an outpouring of My presence. As I flood the people of Galveston to Houston, I will return them with a flood of My presence.
“Faith is now your guide. For faith will explode in the very hearts of this city and ten surrounding smaller cities of this area. This will be a faith explosion that will begin to occur because victory has entered Houston and you have gathered to receive a new anointing of grace. Walk forth with Me from this place, for I am dressing you in victory. You are turning upward. And although you do not know where this updraft will take you, ride the wind with Me and the waves will not overtake you.’”

NEW ORLEANS / ST. LOUIS
September 26, 2005
Benny Hinn Ministries’ Pastor’s Conference
Releasing the Prophetic Destiny of a Nation by Chuck Pierce & Dutch Sheetz
Future War of the Church by Chuck Pierce
Chuck Pierce prophecy to Benny Hinn: “…I say now your call is to change entire city structures, I say the sword of mine is now resting in your hand get ready for you will divide this land [New Madrid fault along the Mississippi River] that I might enter in again, saith the Lord. Just shout, he’s coming in again…” [end of United States / NORTHCOM divides US into 10 districts]
On August 12, 2005, God told Chuck Pierce: “Call forth the refuge cities throughout this nation. [sustainable communities or death camps] Call them forth on the East Coast… the West Coast and the Gulf Coast NOW… God is calling forth refuge cities throughout our nation… because we are in for a season…
“This is a book that can be passed on from generation to generation…because the Lord told me that you war with your prophetic word… The Lord told me… ‘I want you to go to the north and I want you to agree with me that there is a North wind that is coming upon this land. We went there to Minnesota and stood at the head of the Mississippi and we decreed that the North wind of the Lord would begin to come to bring change to our nation. Then he said, I want you to go south and I want you to go to Baton Rouge and I want you to make a decree that the South wind that would come would be a purifying wind. And during the time of our gathering and during the time of our decreeing there, all of a sudden this purifying wind will begin to bring water that will cover New Orleans and purify this land. It wasn’t a wind that could be stopped, it wasn’t water that could be stopped. It was very, very clear, it was a very precise word. Matter of fact, after that Hurricane Ivan began to turn toward New Orleans, but it was something about this that was different. That’s why, when the Hurricane Katrina was just a tropical storm, that was coming across Florida, all of a sudden Steve Schultz [founder/director of Elijah List] found this word and he recognized that Katrina’s name meant “purify.” And he said this word is this now, in other words, water was coming, water would cover New Orleans. It could not be stopped… Yet we must know there is a purification taking place. …It’s not something we want to watch, but we know that loss and trauma can also purify. Loss can produce resurrection.
[Congressman Richard Baker, R-LA: “We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn’t do it, but God did.”]

“But here was a very interesting thing that happened on August 12… The spirit of God fell on us and he said ‘Call forth the refuge cities now…’ Well a year ago on August 29, when we were in Baton Rouge, and he was showing us the wind and the water that would come, he told us that Baton Rouge would become the model refuge city. He said the people would come north… He said Baton Rouge would become a refuge city. Now when he fell on us on August 12…he said ‘Call out the refuge cities of this nation.’… Call them forth on the East Coast, call them forth on the West Coast, call them forth on the Gulf Coast. They must arise and God emphatically said NOW…. Because we are in for a season of not only the North wind… because he said, Once the North wind, you call it forth, and the South wind begins to come and New Orleans starts being purified, you are going to see St. Louis begin to shake [on New Madrid fault]… God will draw forth out of the very center of this nation a breaking forth of His glory. We will see the glory of God rising out of St. Louis in a way that will shake us all because the spirit of God’s going to invade that city. Now I want to tell you that if you are from there to get ready, there is an invasion [of refugees?] that is working up towards you [from Detroit? see below], there is an invasion that is working down towards you [from Louisiana?], and across the middle of this nation there is going to be a shaking.

This stainless steel Arch was constructed in 1965 by Eero Saarinen and is the second largest monument in the world, rising 630 ft. high from a 60-ft. foundation and spanning 630 ft. at ground level. Its classic weighted catenary curve sways 1/2″ to 1″ in 20 mph winds. Rooted in the bedrock next to the Mississippi River, the Arch would function as a tuning fork in the event of a large flying object impacting it, such as a plane, and the vibrations would trigger a great earthquake. Presciently it seems, a 1960’s comic book featured Captain Marvel defeating a monster by using the Gateway Arch as a tuning fork! In a real event, however, not only would the Mighty Mississippi overflow its banks, but the Missouri River and the Ohio River which flow into the Mississippi north and south of St. Louis, would back up, causing massive flooding. With all of these occurring simultaneously, the surge over the central U.S. could resemble a tsunami.]
Call forth the refuge cities. And do you know who administers those cities? [NORTHCOM/FEMA/DHS] You, I, that’s why God’s called you here… It’s now time for the Church to shift back to the blood and the cross [the Rose Croix?] and it’s time for the harvest to come in. The healing evangelist mantle that’s been there is now being extended to the Body of Christ.”

DETROIT / LOS ANGELES / SAN FRANCISCO

Benny Hinn Ministries’ Pastor’s Conference
Benny Hinn: “Chuck Pierce is a prophet of God….”

Chuck Pierce: “Now hear the word the Lord has given to me. And its found in Luke, chapter 14. And it was the word where he said to his disciples to leave all and follow me… [mentions refugees from New Orleans]. On August 12…this word went out across our nation, tell my people to get ready for they must have the same heart as my people had a Passover. When I say move, they must move and move quickly! Not only am I giving them the ability to plunder the enemy’s camp, but I’m giving them the ability to move quickly and hide themselves from disaster so I can draw them out again so they be used to bring forth my promises into the earth realm. So if you are in the trauma of losing and having to let go and leave what you had along the Gulf Coast…God says you will be used mightily in days ahead if you will submit to me during this time to allow me to reform your spirit. [New Apostolic Reformation / Gnostic occultism] Hear my words, I am ready to reform your spirit, saith the Lord. For many things have crowded in upon you but I am reforming the spirit of my people to be able to hold my spirit [demon possession] and to stand in the face of darkness and decree that darkness will have to flee… Now the Lord says here how can you come after me unless you are willing to leave everything, mother, wife, sister, brother [compliance will facilitate transporting Christians to death camps], a very, very hard word from our Lord. He said you can’t be my disciple if you won’t pick up your cross… your cross, the one I’m giving you… If you’re going to war, you need to count the cost…
“When the Lord showed me this passage he showed me the next three years ahead [first half of Tribulation period]. He said to me, I am sending, I am teaching my people again, they will learn again the power of my cross. They will learn again the power of the cross they’re carrying. Not only are we entering into three years of learning, but we are entering into three years of going and building, new and fresh, the model for the next three generations. We are entering a time of acceleration; we are entering a time of building…you are going into a building season, even if you’ve lost everything in the past, God says, this now becomes your building season… and these next three years, war escalates, internally war escalates [civil disorder in cities], and in the escalation of this war season…we are building the model for the Church for the future [Esoteric Church]… but if we’re building the model the next three years, the gates of hell cannot withstand us. Tell your neighbor God is preparing you to stand against hell.
“Now I want to say to you…tonight…times are escalating, we are in seasons of escalation… There is a cost, I’m asking you to count… you don’t know enough to make it in the next three years…you can’t make it. Don’t let any religious spirit [KJV-Only/Bible doctrine] convince you that you have what it takes [Jesus Christ] and you can’t learn something [Gnosticism] about what it takes to walk in victory in these next three years. We are in shifting times [paradigm shift], get ready. God is very, very specific when he speaks. Prophets are getting, God is doing a refining work in his prophetic voice so he will be very specific when it’s time for Detroit to come ablaze. For Los Angeles, to begin to seethe in violence to warn. [urban race riots after earthquake, more below]
[This is not the first time Pierce has prophesied that Detroit would be set ablaze. Starting in November of 2004, his prophecies have been issuing forth to the Michigan USSPN and on Nov. 24, 2004, prophet Pierce predicted: “God is going to have revival here in the Detroit metropolitan area and it will be filled with flames of revival that will create an international and national stir; the power of God moving in this region.” Judging by his other prophecies, “flames of revival” is a religious euphemism for a major fiery catastrophe in Detroit. In 2005, numerous conferences were conducted in Detroit by Pierce and other prophetic “apostles” to “break open” the heavens so the angels can invade Detroit and bring this fire to the city.
Detroit, Michigan is the automotive capital of the world, where cars, trucks, military and agricultural vehicles are manufactured as well as steel for raw materials. The headquarters of American Motors, GM, Ford, Chrysler are all located in Detroit. Dozens of steamship lines operate out of the city, shipping materials worldwide via the St. Lawrence Seaway. Numerous railroads, airlines, and truck lines also combine to make the city a transportation center. Should Detroit be destroyed, transportation production in the U.S. would be crippled. Also located in Detroit is the largest Muslim community in the U.S. When Chuck Pierce stated that Detroit was going to “come ablaze,” the impression given was that this would be a nuclear holocaust. It seems plausible that a suitcase bomb or a few could be detonated and blamed on the Muslim community there. This would accomplish more than one agenda — it would provide a convenient scapegoat for the crime, exterminate the nucleus of Islam in the U.S., and further vilify the Muslims to justify more military incursions in the Middle East.
Another thought. . . More hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico would send additional tens of thousands of refugees streaming northward into the central U.S. states. And a nuclear holocaust in Detroit would send survivors fleeing south into the central states. Should these two events occur before the New Madrid earthquake, the swelling population of the central American states would mean even greater loss of life.]
“These are times God is saying to the Church, wait a minute, come with me, come away to see, because the wind he asked me to unlock wasn’t the wind to destroy New Orleans, wasn’t the wind to sweep down the Mississippi from the north, and shake St. Louis. He said, you go north and you go south and you decree I blow upon this garden [Garden Plot] for its next history. He said you decree that the wind that needs to be released to open up the fragrance of my people in America will now be released… And the Lord would say to begin to watch even beginning mid-September to October 15 as economic systems begin to shift and begin to be rearranged. [high gas prices] For I say to you by November there will be a rearrangement of the economic system of this land saith the Lord. And I say to you get ready for I say also governments will begin to shake by February in days ahead in the year coming for I say I am extending my covering over people and over lands [US to be merged with Canada and Mexico]. I say this is a year to put your tent peg down, I say I’m shifting away that which could be shifted away so you begin to plant yourself in solid ground, saith the Lord. I say to you, get ready to connect and unify as my body for you have tried to bring forth a false unity, you have tried to communicate, but now I will create unity in my people by my spirit, saith the Lord… Gird up your loins for victory…and in the third year ahead I say the fruit of harvest will be brought into the storehouse.” [Mid-Tribulation/Mark of the Beast]

[So Chuck Pierce’s “Word over the United States” seems to be economic collapse. But will his and other “anointed apostolic ministries” survive the coming depression and be able to minister to the poor and starving people after they have left their possessions and family in obedience to Jesus? Will Chuck Pierce, Dutch Sheets and Peter Wagner also leave everything behind in Colorado Springs??? Well, maybe they have other plans…
