It is no secret that pagan Romanism and the charismatic 24-7 Prayer movement go hand in hand, yet so many so-called Protestant Christians seem unable or unwilling to see these disgraceful links.
But they were proudly on show for all to see once again at the weekend just gone as the words of the Pope were plastered at the front of their worldwide conference, held in Belfast.
A somewhat sadly credulous attendee posted a message on his Twitter account expressing his tremendous delight at being at the conference.
To go along with his words, he posted a picture of none other than Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson (pictured, top), one of the lead pastors of the Rome embracing Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area of County Armagh and leader of 24-7 Prayer in Ireland, up on the stage with a quote projected on to the screen behind him as he spoke.
That quote, of course, was from “that Antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalts himself, in the Church, against Christ and all that is called God”, the Pope.
Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson can be seen standing in front of that quote in the picture below.
Let us not forget the blasphemous titles the Pope takes upon himself, in which he blasphemes all three Persons of the Godhead.
Firstly, he calls himself the ‘Holy Father’, despite a clear Biblical prohibition, directly from Jesus, on sinful man taking such titles upon himself.
Matthew 23:9 says: “And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.”
This is a clear blasphemy against God the Father.
Secondly, he calls himself the ‘Pontiff’ or bridge between God and man. This is a position which belongs solely to Christ.
1 Timothy 2:5 says: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.
This is a clear blasphemy against God the Son.
Thirdly, he calls himself the ‘Vicar of Christ on earth’. This is a position which belongs solely to the Holy Spirit.
John 14:16-18, 26 says: “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”
This is a clear blasphemy against God the Holy Spirit.
The Pope is a rotten old blasphemer against almighty God, yet Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is happy to promote this old deceiver to all and sundry.
Let us, too, never forget the blasphemous teachings of the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church which he heads up.
Rome teaches of a fictional holding cell between heaven and hell they call purgatory, a false notion with absolutely no Scriptural warrant. One need only read the story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16 to see the immediacy of our souls going to heaven or hell when we die.
Rome teaches of prayer being offered up to Mary and to long dead so-called ‘saints’, despite there being not one incident in Scripture when legitimate prayers are offered to any but God.
Rome teaches the blasphemous Mass, in which they offer up Christ as a sacrifice repeatedly each and every day in Romanist chapels across the world, despite the Scriptures teaching that His sacrifice was once for all.
Hebrews 7:22, 24, 27: “By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament. But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.”
Worst of all, Rome pronounces its curse, or anathema, on any who believe the Biblical doctrine of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone.
It is so clearly taught in Scripture that salvation is of God, not of ourselves. With Rome, salvation is all doing; with Christ, salvation is all done.
Ephesians 2:8-9 says: “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Titus 3:5-7 says: “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”
These are simple Scriptural truths, yet Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson and everyone else associated with that 24-7 Prayer conference are riding roughshod over the gospel message in their pathetic Popish pandering.
Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has considerable form when it comes to compromise with Rome.
Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson spoke in a Romanist chapel in Belfast in February last year as part of the ecumenical Four Corners festival. He is pictured below speaking in that hub of Romanist deceit.
Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson addressed a meeting of the ecumenical Ballymena Church Members Forum and endorsed the ecumenical charismaniac Healing the Land festival last year.
Most ignominiously of all, Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson glorified the evil founder of the sinister Romanist order of the Jesuits, Ignatius of Loyola at his Emmanuel Church in October last year.
He continues to promote Rome to any who are foolish and deluded enough to listen to him and what a fearful condemnation he is building up for himself in eternity.
Proverbs 29:1: “He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.”
On so many occasions the shameful compromise of Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has been set before his face, but again and again he has hardened his neck.
Will Alain Emerson not repent of his dreadful compromise with Rome, leading the souls of so many astray?
He is, sadly, not on his lonesome in this regard of leading people astray under the pretence that he is a man sent by God.
ABBA prayer dance supporting Pete Greig (pictured, above), who is trying to boost the Roman Catholic Church in Austria and, until last weekend, the overall leader of 24-7 Prayer (replaced by another character all true Christians should be wary of, Mike Andrea), was also a speaker at that conference.
And where was the conference held? May Street Presbyterian Church in Belfast, now ran by Carnmoney Presbyterian Church offshoot Carnmoney Central.
It will come as no shock to any readers of ‘Protestant Revival’ that such a venue hosted such an event.
Carnmoney Presbyterian Church is ran by a minister who is openly opposed to the Bible’s view on sodomy, the crowd-surfer Rev John Dickinson, who endorsed the ‘Christian’ LGBT campaigner Vicky Beeching and openly condemned the Presbyterian Church’s soft efforts to tackle sodomy within the denomination at its General Assembly.
Rev John Dickinson’s son, David Dickinson (pictured, below), is at the helm of Carnmoney Central and was more than happy to fellowship with a Papist priest when his charismaniac collective took over May Street at the start of the year.
Furthermore, Carnmoney Central, or May Street Presbyterian Church, has also played host to the Pope blessed ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer event in each of the past two years.
The home of the Presbyterian Church, Assembly Buildings, located just a matter of yards from May Street Presbyterian Church, also hosted some of the events of the four day conference.
Why does the Presbyterian Church allow this event to be held on its property? It truly is shameful that promotion of Popery is taking place in any of its buildings, but surely much more grievous for it to be done in their headquarters.
Ezekiel 5:11 warns of the dreadful judgment which comes from God when buildings which were at one time used to glorify God are changed into something that does the opposite.
It says: “Wherefore, as I live, saith the Lord God; Surely, because thou hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things, and with all thine abominations, therefore will I also diminish thee; neither shall mine eye spare, neither will I have any pity.”
These buildings are polluted with Popery and religious compromise.
Let any reading this have no part of it, have nothing to do with it, and better still, speak out against it and share this article widely so as many as possible can be warned.
We are called to speak out against error and undoubtedly 24-7 Prayer is replete with error.
And let us never be afraid to take a stand for Christ and speak out against that which claims to be of Him but is so clearly not.
Ephesians 5:11: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
