revelation tv: the ecumenical spirit of antichrist

Consider the people of Israel: are not those who eat the sacrifices participants in the altar? What do I imply then? That food offered to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be participants with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons. Shall we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he? (1 Corinthians 10:18-22 cf. Deuteronomy 32:16-17)

Revelation TV (RTV) continues to draw controversy due to the compromised position of Howard Conder and his associates who peddle many false Word Faith money teachers for filthy lucre (1 Timothy 3:8). The apostasy of RTV goes much deeper than the Word Faith teachers however. The above passage makes it clear that idolatry is connected with the demonic and that heathen gods are in fact demons. The ecumenical movement was always the thin end of the wedge. These days the ecumenical movement goes beyond uniting Christians throughout the world; it actively seeks to connect Protestants, Roman Catholics and non-Christian faiths through "interfaith dialogue" or "interreligious dialogue". Involvement in ecumenism necessitates a denial of the uniqueness of Jesus Christ and the Christian faith. Those involved in ecumenism must ignore the scriptural commands to maintain the purity of the gospel (Galatians 1:6-9; 2 Peter 2:1; Jude 1:3-4). RTV's ecumenical connections both abroad and within the UK make a complete sham of their profession of faith in the one true God of the Bible. RTV state on their website that there is only one God, the living and true God and that the Word of God, as revealed by the scriptures of the Holy Bible is infallible. {1} In light of RTV's clear defection from the Word of God, what do their hypocritical statements about the exclusivity of Jesus Christ really amount to?

Revelation TV publicly endorses Premier Christian Radio's shocking list of the 60 most influential so called Christians on their website. Below are just a few of the names included on the list. {2}

Mother Teresa: “We never try to convert those who receive [aid from Missionaries of Charity] to Christianity but in our work we bear witness to the love of God’s presence and if Catholics, Protestants, Buddhists, or agnostics become for this better men — simply better — we will be satisfied."
Dr. Rowan Williams: Former Archbishop of Canterbury, Druid and paganist (Gorsedd of Bards). 
Archbishop Desmond Tutu: "I would not worship a God who is homophobic."  
“When we speak even of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, it is not the revivication of a corpse.”
Desmond Tutu started the Interfaith petition Faiths for Earth Campaign in 2015.
Bono: Irish singer, musician, and humanitarian best known for being the main vocalist of the Dublin-based rock band U2 who made COEXIST popular on their Vertigo Tour. The “C” in “coexist” was the Islamic crescent moon, the “X” was the Star of David, and the “T” was the cross of Christ. Bono's global religion mantra:  "Jesus, Jew, Mohammed—all true. Jesus, Jew, Mohammed—all true.Bono Supports homosexuality and abortion.
J K Rowling: British novelist, best known as the author of the Harry Potter occult series.
Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill: Member of the Albion Lodge of the Anciente Order of Druids of Oxford.
Tony Blair: Founder of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation which is an interfaith charitable foundation. Tony Blair is a Roman Catholic convert, an interfaith leader and Bilderberg participant who admitted making political decisions based on new age readings of a hidden force called "The Light" (Lucifer?). 
Nicky Gumbel: Pioneer of the Alpha Course and Vicar of the infamous Anglican Holy Trinity Brompton Church. Gumbel opened the Leadership Conference with a speech titled: “A Vision for a United Church.”
"Alpha Course’s Nicky Gumbel’s Leadership Conference Brings in Interfaith Leader Tony Blair." {3} "The same Spirit lives in the Catholics, and the Orthodox, and the Pentecostals and the Protestants, even the Anglicans have the same Holy Spirit living within them. That’s what makes us one!” {4}
Full notes on Gumble's thirty two minute opening address can be found on the following link: http://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com/alpha-2015-gumbel.pdf 

Insight and 20/20 Vision with Hugh Osgood 

I now turn my attention to Hugh Osgood, who has strong links with Howard Conder and a twice weekly slot on RTV.

Hugh Osgood holds a number of national and international positions within the ecumenical movement, many of which are interconnected. He is the Free Churches Moderator and a President of Churches Together in England, as well as being the Co-Chair of the UK Charismatic and Pentecostal Leaders’ Conference and serving as the founding President of Churches in Communities International. Hugh Osgood helped launch UK Christian TV Ministry (with God TV and Revelation TV). He is also the founder and senior minister of Cornerstone Christian Centre {5} The Cornerstone Christian Centre is where the so called “Elijah prophecy" was given to Howard Conder from Malaysian cult leader and proven false prophet Jonathan David in 1994. This false prophecy has given rise to Conder's delusional but persistent portrayal of himself as "a modern day Elijah" who will bring a confrontation of TRUTH of all things! {6} Conder may very well find himself on the reverse side of his so called "Elijah prophecy" since he clearly has more affinity with the prophets of Baal!

It is troubling to note that Hugh Osgood appears to be at the very epicentre of the web of activity being orchestrated by the spirit of antichrist aka the ecumenical movement:

Churches Together in England (CTE) is the successor body to the British Council of Churches. It is known as the formal "ecumenical instrument" for the agenda that the churches in England have committed themselves to in order to achieve false unity between apostate churches based on Jesus' prayer for unity (John 17:20-23) CTE member churches includes the world's largest pseudo Christian cult, Roman Catholicism. It is critical to note that Jesus' prayer for unity was conditional upon truth (John 17:17-19). Unity in the faith is impossible without being sanctified by the truth of God's Word! (Ephesians 4:14-16; 2 Timothy 1:13-14)

Free Churches Group (FCG) is an ecumenical association of Free Church denominations and Church groups who are engaged in public ministry. {7}  Many FCG churches are also CTE members. {8}

The UK Charismatic and Pentecostal Leaders’ Conference is part of Churches Together. {9}  

Churches in Communities International, (CiC International) is affiliated to Churches Together {10}

Hugh Osgood's ministry is facilitated by Charis Communications where he holds the position of Executive Chair. {11} Charis Communications have worked with the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, Churches Together, Revelation TV, Assemblies of God UK, Billy Graham Mission, the Evangelical Alliance and many others. {12}

Hugh Osgood is also Patron of Inform (Information Network on Religious Movements) which is involved with the Church of England, the Greek Orthodox Church, the Roman Catholic Church, the Free Churches Group etc. {13} 

"Hugh's responsibilities now extend across London, the UK and, through the work of Charis Communications and Churches in Communities he provides oversight for churches and charities in Africa, Asia, America and the UK. He is an Apostolic Teacher of the Word and we are grateful to have regular access to his wisdom and insight." {14}

False prophets and false teachers are synonymous terms in the scriptures..
BLACKEST DARKNESS is reserved for false prophets/teachers (2 Peter 2:17)

But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.....  These people are springs without water and mists driven by a storm. Blackest darkness is reserved for them. (2 Peter 2:1-22) 

Just a reminder..

The Charity Commission's statutory inquiry into Revelation Foundation was opened on the 8th of September 2014 and is yet to release its findings.

"In March 2014 complaints were received from members of the public alleging the charity was being used for private advantage. A subsequent scrutiny of the charity’s accounts by the commission identified regulatory concerns which include potential significant loss of charitable funds, trustee benefits, conflicts of interest and connected party transactions. These concerns are primarily in relation to the production and broadcasting of television programmes from Spain as well as the trustees’ decisions to transfer significant charitable assets and funds from the UK to Spain." {15} 

Howard and Lesley Conder own a private TV company called 21st Century Television Ltd which sells Revelation TV’s airtime. Revelation TV's Programme-Guide from their website displays many non-Revelation TV programmes they air.  In January 2015, a conservative guesstimate on the assumption that everyone purchasing air time paid the lowest rate (£250 for 28mins = £500 per hour) 60 x £500 = £30,000 per week =
£1,560,000 per year......... 

These monies do NOT appear on the INCOME/EXPENDITURE pie charts presented by Gordon Pettie. This is very misleading to viewers who are under the impression that Revelation TV are desperately in need of donations.

Ecumenism is the very height of wickedness, yet so many cannot see this very plain and clear truth.
We daily need to remind ourselves of those who were martyred for not bending the knee to the pope at the time of that great movement of God-known as the Reformation. RTV and the names you mention ARE instrumental to the deception of the age. The "broad way" WILL allow salvation outside of the blood of Christ ALONE.

Just because there may be some truth broadcast by RTV; WHAT is the spirit behind it? Deception M-U-S-T harbour truth in order to deceive! Oh! Why can't people see this?

This Charity Commission investigation seems to be dragging its heels. As far as RTV are concerned, is this good news? I certainly believe not. We have to remember that the CC (so I believe) would cast ALL of Christendom under the same ecumenical label.
However, a point that has been lost by many, is that the CC are NOT at all interested in doctrinal matters one teensy weensy little bit!-ONLY if there is financial skulduggery going on! And from where I am sitting, I see it ONLY too clearly-"As a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain." 2 Samuel 23.4.

Keep digging and writing!
God bless you.

Ecumenism in its various forms is the very height of wickedness as you say Colin, and yet so many are oblivious. Rob Thomas made the point very well in his recent article about RTV, i.e. that their messages are a mixture of truth and error. God bless you.

William Scully said...

I may be wrong, but I suspect that the long delay of the the CC report could be due to fact that it is going to very critical of their duplicitous operation, and the CC want to be absolutely sure that their case against Rev TV is watertight. Condor's continued and personal abuse of the CC and it's Chief Executive will not have been missed by them and it will only make them more determined to expose him and his acolytes for what they are, a bunch of scheming, hypocritical con artists who are conning vulnerable people out of their money.

Conder has done himself no favours with the CC William that is for sure. God bless

Alan Franklin of the freepressonline.co.uk regarding RTV's heresy; not apostasy, for that alludes to one who has forsaken the true Faith, examples in the NT from memory are Demas and Alexander the coppersmith. Howard Conder was an ex Jehovah's Witness and subsequently embraced the Roman Catholic/ecumenical movement.(Was he ever in the true Faith?).
Franklin has published his views on RTV; made them VERY CLEAR and on his very site quotes the words-"These men at Revelation TV are truly wolves in sheep's clothing..." Alan obviously agrees, and says they air "many false teachers" and calls them a "grisly gang".
The spirit of Antichrist is well and truly alive in RTV's "grisly gang".
Just to remind your readers what the definition of "grisly" is-to cause "horror" or "disgust" among other things.
How true are Franklin's words.

Treena Gisborn said...

Heresy rather than apostasy is something I had not really considered until now Anonymous. Actually it does explain a lot of things. If Howard Conder went directly from the JWs into ecumenism, then as you imply, there is a question mark as to whether he was ever in the true faith. If this is correct then he has fooled many people from the very beginning! Conder had the "Elijah prophecy" from Jonathan David in 1994 at an ecumenical meeting - this means that he had ecumenical connections for a long time before RTV, which started in 2003 I think? This does throw quite a different light on things. Something to think about. God bless

It would seem that Hugh Jackman is leaving Rev TV. I suspect he wants to
get out before the CC report is published, so avoiding the inevitable flak.
He is claiming it's because the Lord is moving him in that direction. I'm
afraid I just see a very good liar. His interview is available on Twitter.

Hugh Jackman was very unnerved after I texted him live on air, back in 2015, warning him that he and other Rev TV presenters fear the Synagogue of Satan lover Simon Barrett more than they fear God.
