The following letter-form was brought about as a means of teaching my children the Word of God through the mail. And of course, quite naturally so, that’s the reason I begin these letters with "Dear Children" and end them with "Love Dad". So for the rest of you who participate in these weekly messages, please keep their original intended purpose in mind.
7 June, 2015
It was only a few days ago that I came across a sermon video entitled “Humble Yourselves” (https://youtu.be/2zCrEl6B72Q), and was likewise instructed by the Lord to watch it. So I did… and it blessed me immensely!
Humble yourselves! What a powerful message by Richard Owen Roberts! And seeing how it was abundantly obvious that “Brother” Roberts was already well up in age at the time of this video (posted 2009), I did a quick search on Google to see if he had already expired.
Well, what I found was his Web site – Richard Owen Roberts Trust (http://rortrust.org/) – with the following information posted on his “About” page:
Richard Owen Roberts is the President and a founding Director of International Awakening Ministries. A native of Schenectady, New York, Mr. Roberts prepared for the ministry at Gordon College, Whitworth College and Fuller Theological Seminary. He has pastored churches in Idaho, Oregon, Washington and California. Since 1975, Mr. Roberts and his family have lived in the Wheaton, Illinois, area. He worked with the Billy Graham Association and Wheaton College in the formation of the Billy Graham Center Library. His own private collection of some 9,000 volumes relating to movements of religious revival provides the nucleus of the Graham Center Library. From his youth, Mr. Roberts has been a student of spiritual awakenings. He has authored, edited and/or published numerous volumes relating to revival and revivalism.
So, as can be seen in the opening sentence of his “About” statement, Richard Owen Roberts presently serves as President of “International Awakening Ministries”. In other words, Richard Owen Roberts has not “gone on to meet his maker” and therefore still has the glorious opportunity to “humble himself” and “turn from his wicked ways”. And with all that in mind, the title of today’s sermonet is “Richard Owen Roberts: A Messenger Of God Or Satan?”
“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 KJV)
Now, without a doubt, I would have never ever imagined that the Lord would have us speak such strong correction to “Brother” Roberts… but yet that’s exactly what we are about to do. Because it was in his “Humble Yourselves” sermon that “Brother” Roberts gave a real life illustration of a pastor that did whatever was necessary in order to grow his church to “mega” size… which even included baptizing thousands of “unbelievers” in water, and then proclaiming them to be saved. But yet it was after having been corrected by “Brother” Roberts for his demonic behavior, and having been strongly convicted by the Holy Spirit of his horrendous sin, that the pastor refused to humble himself and repent of his evil ways.
You see the “mega church” pastor chose to keep his “mega pride” and thereby forfeit any and all possibilities of making Heaven his everlasting home. I mean, after all, it was the “sin of pride” that caused the anointed cherub, Lucifer, to not only get his name changed to Satan, but also get kicked out of Heaven. In fact, it was the “sin of pride” that caused the Lord God Almighty to prepare the everlasting fires of Hell for this same Devil and his fallen angels.
The “sin of pride” is a devastating sin to say the least. And with the “sin of pride” in mind, let’s get back to “Brother” Roberts and his “International Awakening Ministries”. Because the following excerpt from his “About” page is what this sermonet is really all about:
He worked with the Billy Graham Association and Wheaton College in the formation of the Billy Graham Center Library. His own private collection of some 9,000 volumes relating to movements of religious revival provides the nucleus of the Graham Center Library.
God called Richard Owen Roberts during his teenage years to be a “minister of revival”. So it only stands to reason that he has ministered in this capacity to “awaken” the “dead” church for quite a few decades now. Without a doubt, there have been many noteworthy events in his ministry that give God the glory, but yet approximately thirty-six percent (36%) of his “About” statement was concerning his involvement with the “Billy Graham Association” in establishing the “Billy Graham Center Library”.
Now with all that in mind, let’s see what Wiki has to say about Billy Graham’s library:
The Billy Graham Library is a public museum and library documenting the life and ministry of Christian evangelist Billy Graham. The 40,000-square-foot (3,700 m2) complex opened to the public on June 5, 2007. The library is located on the grounds of the international headquarters of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association in Charlotte, North Carolina, a few miles from where Graham was reared. The library is styled after a dairy barn, with a mechanical "talking" cow, to reflect Graham's farm-based childhood. The main galleries within the library showcase numerous presentations, pictures, music, artifacts, and voices from throughout Graham's ministry.
Well, seeing how the “Billy Graham Library” is a part of the “Billy Graham Center” that gives glory to the world famous “Christian” evangelist “Billy Graham”, let’s check out a few more of the facts on this “great man of God” from Wiki:
William Franklin "Billy" Graham Jr., KBE (born November 7, 1918) is an American evangelical Christian evangelist, ordained as a Southern Baptist minister, who rose to celebrity status in 1949 reaching a core constituency of middle-class, moderately conservative Protestants. He held large indoor and outdoor rallies; sermons were broadcast on radio and television, some still being re-broadcast today.
Graham was a spiritual adviser to several American presidents; he was particularly close to Dwight D. Eisenhower, Lyndon Johnson (who was considered to be one of Graham's closest friends) and Richard Nixon. Graham operates a variety of media and publishing outlets. According to his staff, more than 3.2 million people have responded to the invitation at Billy Graham Crusades to "accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior". As of 2008, Graham's estimated lifetime audience, including radio and television broadcasts, topped 2.2 billion.
Graham has repeatedly been on Gallup's list of most admired men and women. He has appeared on the list 55 times since 1955 (including 49 consecutive years), more than any other individual in the world. Grant Wacker reports:
By the middle 1960s, he had become the "Great Legitimator". ...His presence conferred sanctity on events, authority on presidents, acceptability on wars, desirability on decency, [and] shame on indecency....By the middle 1970s, many deemed him "America's pastor".
Graham graduated from Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois with a degree in anthropology in 1943.
So, it should be abundantly obvious from the preceding Wiki excerpt that Billy Graham has been a major influence in the world for many years. In fact you might even say that this “great man of God” has been “worshiped” by the Christian (and Catholic) community for his efforts to bring about “revival” to a world that so desperately needs to be “awakened” to their need for Jesus Christ the Saviour.
However, letting the truth be known, the following frames from the “Who’s Missing?” tract (http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/5024/5024_01.asp) will help us to see the real spirit of “apostasy” that’s working in and through “Billy Graham” and his ministries:
The “world’s greatest evangelist” (shown in the last frame above) is none other than “Billy Graham” who has “come out of the closet” in his later years to proclaim his lie from the Devil as being God’s truth: “I do not believe in a literal Hell now.” Because, you see, for many years Billy Graham and his ministries have been “secretly” working for Satan to bring about the “apostasy of the church” that will allow the Antichrist to take his position on the world stage:
“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 KJV)
Now the truth about what Billy Graham has been secretly “hiding in the closet” for so many years can be seen in the 1966 photo of Billy Graham on the right. You see the “fist” that Billy Graham was making in that photo had nothing to do with him being angry at the Devil. In fact, the symbolism behind this pose for the camera had everything to do with Billy Graham’s “love and dedication” to the fallen angel Lucifer. Because, you see, it was also in 1966 that Billy Graham was ordained a 33rd degree Freemason at the headquarters of Scottish Rite Freemasonry – the House of the Temple – in Washington, DC. And it’s through this picture perfect “sign of the fellow craft” that Billy Graham was letting other Freemasons around the world know that he’s one of them… just as Freemason Pat Robertson has done so many times for the world to see:
So, “Christian” Billy Graham’s “secret hand sign” is really all about what will happen to him if he divulges the secrets of Freemasonry – “having my left breast torn open, my heart plucked out, and given to the wild beast of the fields and the fowls of the air.” And, of course, it should be abundantly obvious that there ain’t nothing “Christian” about this “blood oath” of the “Brotherhood of Freemasonry” by which Billy Graham has sworn allegiance! In fact the “BIG secret” that Billy Graham must keep can be found in the writings of Albert Pike who was a 33rd Degree Freemason and the Grand Commander, Sovereign Pontiff of Universal Freemasonry. Because in his writings, Albert Pike stated directly that “Masonry is the altar at which the adherents of various religions can rise above the ‘baalim’ and worship the one ‘true god’, the Grand Architect of the Universe (Lucifer).”
(See “The Curse of Baphomet” [http://www.fmh-child.org/Baphomet.html] and “The Unwelcome Guest” [http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/1036/1036_01.asp].)
Now that’s what we can learn from Billy Graham’s 1966 photo. And the following excerpt from Cutting Edge Ministries’ article will give us a whole lot more:
As Dr. Cathy Burns reveals in her masterpiece, "Billy Graham and His Friends: The Hidden Agenda", the Illuminati decided in 1896 that, as the world began its final descent into the New World Order (a.k.a., The Kingdom of Antichrist), they needed a "Holy Man" who would command a faithful following amongst the great majority of Fundamental Christians.
This deliberately created "Christian Holy Man" would be the greatest example of a counterfeit Christian leader the world has ever seen, at least before Antichrist appears on the world stage. His role was planned, to repeatedly preach a brief, rather sanitized, Gospel message and be supported by all secular Mass Media outlets the world over.
This Illuminist "Holy Man" would convince the vast majority of Christians that he was genuine. However, he would maintain ungodly relationships with the most ungodly Illuminist leaders the world over; and he would gradually lead genuine Christians down the wrong path towards the appearance of Antichrist.
What a bust! And get this! I was actually brought up in “The Bible Belt” – South Carolina – not too many miles from Billy Graham’s North Carolina home. I can personally testify that he was considered a “religious hero” among most of the Christian churches in my part of the country. In fact I even attended a Billy Graham Crusade during my high school years (the late 1960s). It was one of those “church sponsored” events. My hometown church – “Leesville United Methodist Church” (http://www.fmh-child.org/Leesville_UMC.html) – took me to see this counterfeit “Christian Holy Man” who would pave the way and grease the skids for the soon coming Antichrist. In fact they even encouraged me to believe in his religious charades! But not everybody in South Carolina was duped by this “devil in holy garb”. The founder of Bob Jones University knew better! And the following is how it all came down between him and Billy Graham:
Dr. Bob Jones, Sr., first met Billy Graham when the elder evangelist came to Charlotte, North Carolina, for a gospel meeting during Graham's senior year in high school. Billy's father, Frank, was impressed with Jones and wanted his son to attend Bob Jones College in Tennessee. (The school moved to Greenville, South Carolina, in 1946, and the name was changed to Bob Jones University). Billy did attend Bob Jones the fall after he graduated from high school (1936), but he did not fit in well with the strict atmosphere of discipline and he soon moved on to the Florida Bible Institute and then to Wheaton in 1940 (from whence he graduated--with a degree in anthropology!). Dr. Bob Jones supported Graham during his early years, and Graham even wrote to Jones to say that he got his evangelistic burden at Bob Jones College and he wanted to be called one of Dr. Jones's "preacher boys" (Bob Jones, Sr., letter to a supporter, March 6, 1957). As Graham began to launch out on his career of yoking together with false teachers, Dr. Jones corresponded with him and reproved him for his compromise. At first, Graham claimed that he had no intention of working with Modernists or Catholics. On June 3, 1952, Graham told Jones, "The modernists do not support us anywhere." It was not long, though, before Graham openly practiced what he privately denied. His 1957 New York Crusade included 120 Modernists on the committee.
So, Bob Jones, Sr., a Fundamental Bible-believing Christian, saw the compromise taking place in Billy Graham “the preacher boy” early on. In fact this is what he had to say about what he saw:
“Some of us who grieved over Graham's first downward steps toward compromise with apostasy and biblical unbelief knew that he was pursuing a direction from which there would be no turning back. While we grieved over him and prayed for him, we had to warn men against his ministry as we had warned Billy against his direction.” (See “Whatever The Bible Says Is So!” [http://www.fmh-child.org/S10.31.10.html] for more on Bob Jones, Sr..)
And getting back to Billy Graham’s “coming out party with the Devil” – his 1957 New York Crusade, the following documented evidence will help you see “Billy the preacher boy” as he compromised with “apostasy and biblical unbelief” (http://www.rense.com/general20/unholy2.htm):
Protestant Church Life Magazine quoted Graham in its Sept. 29, 1956 issue, 'Referring to the Billy Graham New York Crusade scheduled for May, 1957, Dr. Graham said: "We're coming to New York not to clean it up, but to get people to dedicate themselves to God and to send them on to their own churches -- Catholic, Protestant or Jewish." This has remained the practice of Graham to this day. The Charlotte Observer reported on a press release of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, where Billy Graham lashes out at Southern Baptists who desire to evangelize Jews for Christ. Graham makes it clear that he firmly opposes "proselytizing" the Jews; Billy Graham's unbiblical teaching is that, if you are a Jew, you are already part of the Body of Christ, even if you reject Jesus. All Jews, Graham states "are engrafted into the Christian Church." And yet, many of Graham's past statements have proved to be anti-Semitic, as recently embarrassing Nixon White house tapes have revealed.
So are you starting to get a better picture of Billy Graham “the Luciferian” – the 33rd Degree Freemason – in his appointed duty of “paving the way and greasing the skids” for the soon coming Antichrist? True Believers in Christ love the Jewish people, but Satan’s Antichrist will hate them! And Billy Graham, by his own admission on the “Nixon Tapes”, hates the Jewish people. In fact he hates them so much that he’s done all within his power to keep them from truly receiving Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
But that was only in the beginning of Billy Graham’s demonic tenure as Satan’s counterfeit “Christian Holy Man”. In 1992 Billy Graham blatantly showed his true purpose by preparing the masses for the Antichrist’s “One World Government” and “One World Religion” through his “Embrace America 2000” radio program. Because in that particular broadcast he encouraged the citizens of the United States to “embrace” the “New World Order” proposed by George Bush Sr. in his 9/11/91 “New World Order Speech” that would set the stage for “the Illuminati’s” orchestrated 9/11/01 “Terrorist Attack” ten (10) years later.
So there you have just a few of the facts on Satan’s most valuable player (MVP) – the Reverend Billy Graham – that has worked so diligently to bring about the “apostasy of the Church” and the “appearance of Antichrist”.
And having said all that, we can now get back to the title of this message – “Richard Owen Roberts: A Messenger Of God Or Satan?” – and the question contained therein. Because the truth of the matter is that great men of God, like Bob Jones, Sr., warn the Church about the infidels in its leadership… but they certainly don’t promote the teachings of those same heretics by helping to build their empire.
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?” (2 Corinthians 6:14-15 KJV)
It’s truly amazing how many of those that publicly profess to “follow Jesus” actually “worship Satan” in secret! And, of course, this is the reason we all need to test these “religious holy men” through the Wisdom of the Holy Spirit so that we might not be deceived and thereby “keep on keeping the faith in Jesus!!!” (See “Billy Graham – Rome’s American Idol” [http://thedayofthelord.info/Billy%20Graham--In%20His%20Own%20Words.html] for more on this subject.)
