There is an End-Time battle for your worship and 2 key worship movements emerging in the earth. This Last Day battle for your worship has personal, corporate and global relevance and application. It is of critical importance for all believers to be aware of this. It is hard to describe its significance fully as it is a battle that has raged in the realm of the spirit since before Adam & Eve were on earth. This will be briefly touched upon so believers can see this has been the enemies plan and intention since the beginning and will culminate in him obtaining his desire for global worship in the Last Days.
THE ENEMIES DESIRE FOR WORSHIP BEFORE ADAM & EVE CREATED
The long-term target of the enemy to receive worship from man, is already far advanced in the earth as we will see when current world events are examined. The devil was previously called Lucifer and was the covering or guardian angel who led worship in Heaven. He was a living instrument created to make sounds that brought the presence of God. Here are some scriptures in Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28 that have a parallel meaning that gives us insight into what happened before man was created and the devil was thrown to the earth because of his rebellion against God.
Isaiah 14:12 “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations!”
Ezekiel 28:13-14 “You were in Eden, the garden of God. Every kind of precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald. You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones. You were blameless in all you did from the day you were created until the day evil was found in you.” 17 “Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendour. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.”
He saw the glorious worship that the Lord received from all in Heaven and he became jealous of this and desired it. He thought he could use a third of the angels to rebel against God and take over as the object of worship from all creation. As we know he failed. However, that did not stop him attempting to obtain worship on earth, after loosing out in heaven. This was still his target when thrown down to earth and he knew if he could get Adam & Eve to sin, he could get his wish to obtain worship. The devil knew if he could get man to sin, he could get some of mankind to rebel against God and choose to worship him instead. We see today that it is not just some of the world that directly or indirectly follows Satan, but actually the majority. Even Jesus called him “The god of this world” – Luke 5:6. So his deceptive plan against Adam and Eve has worked to a degree.
We then see in Daniel 3, King Nebuchadnezzar trying to obtain worship by forcing all to worship his image and throwing the 3 Hebrew boys into the fire. We then fast forward to revelation 13 and see the enemy obtaining this forced worship in the whole world. So this is a vital foundation for believers to understand what the battle is over and how our worship is the target of both God and the enemy. The enemy is happy to receive forced worship, whereas as we know God gives us freewill to lovingly choose to follow Him.
THE ANTICHRIST WORSHIP MOVEMENT – ONE WORLD RELIGION
There is a worship movement that has begun several decades ago that many believers are not aware of that is laying the foundation for the Antichrist worship system. It is called the One World Religion. It is a merging together of numerous faith groups into one with the foundation being that they are all seeking the same God so they can put their differences aside. There are thousands of Christians already involved in this and I encourage believers to research it for themselves as it is one of the clearest signs of the Last Days.
The major problem with this movement is that they remove Jesus as the only way to God and Heaven. As Jesus tells us in John 14:6 “I am The Way, The Truth and The Life, no man comes to the Father except through Me.” Jesus is the only way to heaven and only one that paid the price for our sin, so no other religion or religious system can replace Him. So when a believer partakes in such a system they are engaging in clear biblical apostasy and are forfeiting the only way to salvation through Jesus Christ. The bible tells us that a world ruler called the Antichrist will emerge in the Last Days and receive global worship. The bible also tells us of a religious leader that will emerge that will further facilitate this one world worship movement all the way to its intended goal – worship of the devil inspired Antichrist.
Revelation 13:11 “Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. It exercised all the authority of the first beast and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. He did astounding miracles, even making fire flash down to earth from the sky while everyone was watching.”
The word tells us that this false religious leader will lead the world to worship the Antichrist and use signs and wonders to confirm his false message. This is hugely significant as many believers today believe that if a leader or Christian does signs and wonders it automatically means that person is a genuine follower of Christ/minister of the Gospel. This is a dangerous and wrong assumption that will lead to multitudes ending up in Hell by following false prophets and ministers in the Last Days. Jesus repeatedly warns us about this.
This false prophet uses powerful signs and wonders to deceive the world into worshiping the Antichrist. So we must be aware that in the Last Days there will be others that will use signs and wonders to deceive people. The true test is both the fruits of the person and most importantly does their teaching contradict the bible. A believer can heal 1000 people, raise 25 from the dead, prophesy accurate world events – but if they then go on to preach false teachings or point to another Christ, like this false leader does, we must immediately turn away from them. Many will find this hard as there are many false prophets and teachers in the world today with millions of followers that are deceiving people and believers often argue that other believers are “judging them”. However, the reality is, if people do not preach this truth, many more “believers” will end up deceived and in Hell for eternity. Jesus says: Matthew 15:14 “If the blind lead the blind, they both fall into the same pit”. So, Jesus warns that following a false leader will lead to the same destruction as the leader themselves.
Matthew 7:22 further illustrates this when Jesus warns us: “Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your Name and in Your Name drive out demons and in Your Name perform many miracles? And then will I declare unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, you that work iniquity.” So these were believers or leaders who did many signs and wonders – but ended up in Hell because they were using the gifts of God separate from the God of the gift and consequently leading people astray and Jesus calls these “works of iniquity”. So believers should take great care and discern carefully who they follow as there are false teachers leading people astray.
ANTICHRIST MARK OF THE BEAST WORSHIP SYSTEM
Revelation 13:16 “He required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. So that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.”
The Antichrist will institute a one world government and mark system that will monitor all people on the earth and regulate global economies and currencies. This will enable him to force worship upon the world. The way the world is today we can see that the foundations for such a system are already being laid through technology and government initiatives.
However, it is important to reassure people that the Covid Vaccine is not the mark of the beast as some have thought. If a believer carefully studies the bible and in particular the book of Revelation, it will be clear the mark of the beast is not yet established in the earth. Things are progressing but we are not yet at that final stage of history. Most importantly, the Antichrist has not yet been revealed, therefore his mark system cannot yet be released and that should clarify any questions people may have.
REBUILDING OF THE JEWISH TEMPLE – ANTICHRIST WORSHIP BASE
Believers will wonder why we need to mention this, but this is where the culmination of the enemies plans for worship is seen. 2 Thessalonians 2:4 “The Antichrist, acting as if he is God, will sit in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” The antichrist will one day sit in the rebuilt Jewish Temple and demand global worship from there. This will be one of the final events before the Lord begins to send judgement on the earth to close out the age as seen in book of Revelation.
It is important for believers to be aware that there are already plans in place to rebuild the 3rd temple. This is quite astonishing as even though this may take a few decades to be established, it still gives an idea of how advanced we could be on God’s timetable when there is already plans in place to build this temple that will be used to fulfil end-time prophecy. This link gives believers more info and understanding on it and its significance as well potential to be rebuilt in a matter of years: https://free.messianicbible.com/feature/end-time-prophecy-why-is-the-third-temple-so-important/
THE LORD’S END-TIME WORSHIP MOVEMENT
1 Peter 2:9 “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” It has always been the desire of the Lord to have a people set apart from all the nations in the earth to worship Him. We see it through His divine selection of the nation of Israel and also this promise to all believers in Peter. The Lord has begun to set apart His people to worship Him in Spirit and Truth in these Last Days. Consequently, there are many worship movements in the earth today, including traditional and prophetic. They all have their merits and place in the Lord’s End-Time plan and more believers are grasping the importance of worship in its different styles and formats. All of God’s people are called to be part of His Last Days worship movement, whatever the style or location.
In the midst of the various movements, there is a significant worship movement that is active in the earth and gaining momentum. It is the 24/7 Worship movement. The restoration of David’s Tabernacle is central to this worship movement. The restoration of David’s Tabernacle is central to what God is doing in the earth.
Acts 15:16-18 “After this I will return and rebuild David’s fallen tabernacle. Its ruins I will rebuild, and I will restore it, so that the remnant of mankind may seek the Lord, and all the Gentiles who are called by My name, says the Lord who does this.”
This restoration will see 24/7 Worship and Prayer houses established all over the earth. This 24/7 Worship movement will facilitate the transformation of some nations and bring in the End-Time Harvest. This movement is what we want to be part of as it is the church moving in unity and power like this that will bring a mighty outpouring of the Spirit in the Last Days.
ENEMY BATTLES FOR YOUR PERSONAL WORSHIP
We are not yet in the times when the Antichrist system of forced worship will apply to us. However, this battle for your worship has huge relevance for all of us on a personal basis. It goes far beyond bowing down to any statue or the enemy appearing to us and demanding worship. The enemy tried to get Jesus to worship him. This short cut that the enemy offers is taken by many in the world including believers being sold out for gain.
The enemy steals our worship by making us compromise in any area of our life. We may not bow down to an idol in our home, but if we compromise by allowing sin in certain areas, the enemy has stolen what should be pure sacrifice and worship to the Lord. The reason many are deceived by the one world religious system is because they have compromised truth for the sake of a false unity. This is what the enemy does, if he can get a believer to compromise in one area, he can get a foothold in their life and lead them astray and some may never return to the truth.
HOW SHOULD WE RESPOND? – CONSECRATED LIFE OF WORSHIP
The discussion between Jesus and the woman at the well, is significant in defining true worship and gives us insight into how we can avoid Last Days deception. John 4:19 – “Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet. Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem. “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. But a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking these ones to worship Him. God is Spirit, and His worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
The woman at the well was focused on the location of worship, whether Jerusalem or a mountain. However, Jesus had to focus her on true worship which has no locational boundaries. God is a Spirit and He is omni-present therefore, believers can worship Him anywhere anytime. Not just at a location or at home, as some think that worship is only for Sunday service. Jesus also gave a second foundation for real worship – it must be in “truth” also. There is a prescribed way in the word of God that we are to worship. When believers follow another non-biblical way to worship (i.e. alongside other religions that negate the effect of Jesus’ salvation) they have abandoned the truth.
Believers are required to worship God in Spirit and in truth which is according to His word as Jesus is the Truth. So any other type of worship or worship movement that contradicts the word of God cannot be embraced if a believer truly wants eternal life. The final scripture in Romans illustrates true worship for believers in the earth: Romans 12:1 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.” Our entire lives and bodies and everything that we have to offer is to be presented as worship before the Lord, not only the songs we sing. Our time, resources, devotion, commitment, trust and all of our heart. This is true worship that pleases the Father that will ensure we avoid any deception or false worship in our day. May we all persevere to present our lives so wholly to the Lord in worship.

Thank you for this very timely reminder that the anti-Christ comes first at the sixth trump, our Dear Lord at the seventh trump. Hopefully, many will open their eyes and ears before it is too late.
UItimately, the way you win a war is by persuading the other side that they can no longer win — that their efforts are futile. Or in other words, remove their faith in their actions.
In many ways, the lifespan and events of this earth existence are a long persuasive process to defeat the enemy in a giant war. It will work eventually though it has not yet. There is more to life than just that war as we individually have much to gain or lose from this existence.
This is one reason why martyrs will be important at the end, too, as they will stare in the face of Satan undeniable proof that there are those who will never follow/worship him.
I actually do not believe Satan has been cast out of heaven yet. I think it is a misreading to say Satan was cast out of heaven before Adam’s life. This is because the scriptures make it clear in Job that he was still there, and the events in Revelation make it seem that it is not until then that Michael is able to cast Satan out.
At that point, the enemy will unleash all his power to attempt to win this war, which he will not win. He will be defeated as God steps in and wins the war on earth.
Fionnola Morris says
Agreed- this last human era is about dividing the sheep from the goats, both individuals and nations to see who really belongs to God and worships Him only and who trusts to Him alone for our very lives, our sustenance and provision. More than ever, every believe must know the bible inside out and look to the Holy Spirit for interpretation of scripture, and greater wisdom, discernment and dependence on God than ever before – if we are to survive these days with our faith intact and without major deception. I for one, will not be reliant on pastors or churches, only God alone. I have already left one physical church and two I had attended online, because (1) they failed to address the imminent (=expected, soon) return of Christ the King and (2) they had not sought God (only expediency or local doctors – not field experts who had apparently done no independent research. Holy Spirit has impressed upon me the need to feast on the written word, spend time listening to God and to value truth, for if we do not prize the whole truth, we are liable to be deceived. If the devil can’t induce us to worship a counterfeit, adulterated ‘religion’ for the sake of false unity, false peace and keeping a foot in the world and world’s system, he will try to instil fear as to our economic existence, health and survival. Although, Christ’s own people do not fear death or lack and cannot be induced to bow down or sell out for a pot of stew like Esau.
Moreover, history provides ample warnings, that deception and slaughter of innocent people can and does occur in developed, “democratic” nations: Europe experienced WWII on its own territory, if it only to the limited extent of rationing, Nazi bombing or shot-down airmen/escaped POWs / interned foreign nationals – and yes, government censorship/propaganda in order ‘to promote the war effort’; The Franco dictatorship even outlasted WWII. Only 2 short years ago, we had documentaries with – diametrically opposed experts- debating matters of interest. Now the silencing of the absence of debate is deafening.
As for Ireland, officially neutral in WWII, it detained unmarried women (but no men, not even abusive ones) and their innocent children in prison work camps all the while, suppressing the truth of their existence; furthermore, according to survivors of the abuse and neglect, some children were used in drug/vaccine trials (something which is being practiced even today in New York’s children’s homes according to the BBC). In Ireland it was an attempt at exterminating those of “morally corrupted” DNA (which actually is all human life since Adam and Eve). Many more state abuses of power and large corporations/pharmaceutical companies, too numerous to mention have been perpetrated in the intervening years and are well documented.
So while the currently mandated inoculations do not – yet – bear the hallmarks of ‘no buy, no sell’ – for all or as yet – nor an overt worship element (unless it is the world system/ambition/lifestyle/fear/economic realities in the natural. Yet we know without any double, that all the technology already exists that can deliver an (RFID) microchip via a syringe and to tattoo an invisible (to the naked eye) stamp in “Luciferase”, bearing the recipient’s vaccine history. Multiple, unrelated secular and believing scientists and MDs in several countries have independently provided video (microscope) and other documents corroborating the the existence of **nanobots** and genetically modified parasites, graphene oxide and Poly Ethylene Glycol (PEG) and other known toxins (some of which are already included in traditional vaccines).
Then there is the inconvenient truth of the avalanche of first-hand accounts of people pleading for medical assistance and recognition of their injuries or insistence that healthy, even super fit relatives died very suddenly – but their voices have been blocked from mainstream media force out off the main social media platforms; countless world-class, but crucially, financially independent scientists and MDs have been sounding the alarm – among them believers who would call our attention to rDNA shots that -are designed to irreversibly alter and hybridise with animals- our God-given DNA, the very same crime perpetrated by the fallen angels and Nephilim that led to unspeakable wickedness and necessitated the Great Flood to wipe them off the face of the earth because they were no long redeemable, since they were no longer human and their seed that would eventually lead to Christ on earth and His redemption could only be for pure-blooded humans, not hybrids (Exodus).
While the vaxxes may or may not yet be the complete mark of the beast, for defiance against almighty God’s sovereignty over humanity and His right alone to make and modify human DNA, there is no excuse – ESPECIALLY FOR PASTORS and anyone in a leadership role- to fail to be aware of (either by Holy Spirit revelation and/or research of openly published documents in the public domain) the purposeful drive to cull the human race and reduce it to a 500 million bioengineered cyborg slave race (as evidenced by the WEF (World Economic Forum, Bill Gates etc, Rockefeller, WHO, UN ‘Agenda 2000/2030 video-recorded interviews and documented polices that have been in process for some twenty years or more).
Silence, in legal terms denotes agreement and ‘the blind leading the blind into the ditch’ of destruction in this life and the next. As Jesus Himself said, what punishment awaits those who lead the little ones (little people) astray)! God doesn’t need vaxxed, hybridised missionaries to get the Gospel out (Matt 24:14;Joel 2:28) – He has His own methods of transport, should they be required.
This is our final test in this life and our final choice: there is no place in heaven for cowards or those who lie/‘love to live a lie’; their place is with the hypocrites and evil-doers in hell. (Revelation 21:8 and 21:27)
We need rather to fear God, not a treatable virus, not loss of status/financial security, ridicule or even persecution in this temporal existence: fear God alone, fear and obey (i.e. respect) a loving and patient God who can throw us body and soul in hell if we chose to reject His goodness and choose not to trust Him for all we need just as the ancient Israelites did in Goshen and in the wilderness.
He has prepared wonders for those who love Him, not the tawdry temporal baubles this world has to offer and that ultimately ensnare. This is our final test, our chance either to deny Him (!?9 or to declare ourselves for Christ, to radiate the light of the Saviour to this (literally) dying world – (lives cut shot by the poison shot and coming wars and disasters) and to partner with Him to bring in the Final Great Harvest and go home! The Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come, LORD Jesus, come’.
Mary L says
Fionnola, you have expressed what has been on my heart for some time now. I appreciate your thought that we must feast on the Word, as well as be lovers of the whole truth in order to not be deceived in these last days (2Thess. 2:7-12).
I too have had difficulty finding pastors and leaders that are warning people about the dangers of the jabs. I agree with you that there’s no excuse for them not to be informed about and share what these vaxs are doing to people, both physically and spiritually. I know it isn’t easy for them to speak the whole truth any more. There is definitely a price to be paid for it by Christians in leadership positions. I suspect that they are afraid of persecution via loss of income, congregants, status, even family support if they speak up. I’ve heard comments from leaders that we need to focus on bringing the lost to salvation. That’s a partial truth and a way of skating around “the elephant in the room” of the jabs. Is that not compromise for the sake of false unity? (I’m pretty sure there were pastors in Germany and elsewhere during WWII who said basically the same thing, and turned a blind eye to the evils that the Nazis were perpetrating). Where is the love of God and our neighbor when crucial information is being withheld which results in serious, permanent damage? (I’m not suggesting this is the case with you, Pastor Harry. I don’t know what you’ve shared with your congregants).
One other thing I rarely hear addressed in Christian circles is the fact that the DNA modifying jabs were developed, produced, tested and/or contain cell lines developed from human embryos. How does that not harm us both spiritually and physically, defiling our bodies as the temple of God and thereby deeply offending our Creator? Those little ones cry out for justice and God hears their cries!
I pray that we will all be faithful to share the truth and not cower in fear! (Rev. 21:8)
Linda Gallo says
I agree. I think those who are afraid to speak the whole truth are not worthy of their calling. They are compromisers. Preach repentance and salvation, yes! That is God’s heart. But also preach everything else that is in the Bible, especially in the book of revelation. This is the generation which will see those things happen. It’s already happening.
Linda Gallo says
You are more informed than every pastor I know. I left my church also because they are not warning their people. I would speak of these things and they would just blow me off. They don’t want to talk about this stuff. They think Christians will not be around for any of this. They think Christians are exempt from the things coming on the earth. Period. Just because they are Christian. I can’t fellowship with people who have their head in the sand. Those who do not warn their people will be judged harshly in my opinion.
I think this translation is incorrect: “unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.”
I believe it ought to be: “unless they had the mark, or the name of the beast or the number of its name.”
“BIG PHARMA AND MICROSOFT ARE TEAMING UP IN SOMETHING CALLED THE ‘ID2020 ALLIANCE’ THAT WILL COMBINE VACCINATIONS WITH IMPLANTABLE MICROCHIPS TO CREATE YOUR DIGITAL ID”
The ID2020 Alliance, as it’s being called, is a digital identity program that aims to “leverage immunization” as a means of inserting tiny microchips into people’s bodies. In collaboration with the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations, also known as GAVI, the government of Bangladesh and various other “partners in government, academia, and humanitarian relief,” the ID2020 Alliance hopes to usher in this ‘mark of the beast’ as a way to keep tabs on every human being living on Earth.
This article originally came out last year, the first article I read after this so-called CV started in 2020
The Coronavirus Vaccine: The Real Danger is “Agenda ID2020”. Vaccination as a Platform for “Digital Identity”
What is the infamous ID2020? It is an alliance of public-private partners, including UN agencies and civil society. It’s an electronic ID program that uses generalized vaccination as a platform for digital identity.
