Are we entering the tribulation? Is there a false prophet gaining attention in Israel right now? A man called Rav Shlomo Yehuda has been popping up across social media and some are calling him Elijah or the messiah. We are breaking down whether or not prominent rabbi's are following him around and if he is performing miracles.
In an exclusive Charisma News interview, Pastor Mark Biltz, the founder of El Shaddai Ministries, shared insight into what is going on in Israel and end-times clues to be looking out for.
Although some believe that Shlomo has memorized the entire Torah and Talmud, Biltz is more than skeptical about what's being spread online. "He's making a big stir within his own little cult group. Ninety-Nine percent of Israel doesn't even know him. Christians are passing him around on the media, but that isn't what Israel believes," Biltz says.
In a move that stunned conservative Catholics across the world, Fr. Frank Pavone has officially been defrocked by the Catholic church.
As reported by Catholic News Agency, a letter was sent out on Dec. 13 to all bishops in the United States. This letter came directly from Papal Nuncio Fr. Christophe Pierre, the Pope's personal representative in America, and detailed the reasons Pavone was laicized.
Pavone is accused of "blasphemous communications on social media" and "persistent disobedience of the lawful instructions of his diocesan bishop," but the letter does not elaborate on what the examples used were.
After a zipline accident in June left him clinically dead for a few minutes, James, from Little Rock, Arkansas, was revived, but doctors diagnosed him as a quadriplegic and told him he would never walk again. But James, who already had the faith of a mustard seed, says he refused to believe that report and chose instead to hang onto God's promises for his healing.
He had seen "thousands" of others healed after praying for him, so why not him?
Rev. David Bacon, who has been the target of suspected satanist in the recent past, says he suspects witchcraft is involved. Bacon said that women came to clean the church this week to prepare it for Christmas and found the dead cat.
"Every so often we get things like this. It makes everybody feel very uncomfortable," Bacon told the U.K. Times.
