Why Akathleptos?

Why Akathleptos? Because it means Uncontainable. God is infinite. Hence, the whole universe cannot contain Him. The term also refers to the incomprehensibility of God. No man can know everything about God. We can know Him personally but not exhaustively, not even in Heaven.

Why Patmos? Because the church is increasingly marginalized and exiled from the culture.

Why Pen-Names? So the focus is on the words and not who wrote them. We prefer to let what we say stand on its own merit. There is precedent in church history for this - i.e., the elusive identity of Ambrosiaster who wrote in the 4th century A.D.

“Truth is so obscured nowadays, and lies so well established, that unless we love the truth we shall never recognize it." Blaise Pascal

Jonathan Cahn On The End Times & Fate Of Post-Christian Western Civilization

Jonathan Cahn, a Messianic Jew and author of "The Harbinger" was recently interviewed on "Coast To Coast" with George Noory. Here is what he had to say reference the end times and the fate of post-Christian Western Civilization.

“The Bible says before the end times [there will] be a great falling away from faith,” he explained. “The word behind it though is apostasia, from which we get the word apostasy. Apostasy means falling away from the faith. But there’s a secret meaning which is never spoken about, which is so revealing. Apostasy doesn’t just mean a falling away from the faith but a falling away from the state of being."

“It says in the end times there will be a falling away from the faith. Well, we’re watching that, you can see it all around. But at the same time as a civilization is falling away from faith, as it’s falling away from God, it will fall away from the state of being or the state of creation. This means in the end times not only will there be a fall, an apostasy, there will also be man falling away from the state of manhood. Woman will fall away from the state of womanhood. Marriage will fall away from the state of marriage. Family will fall away from the state of family. Human beings will fall away from the state of humanity. We are watching that happen all around us. Just as sure as apostasy that’s what we’re watching and that’s the reason, it’s right there in the Bible.”

Cahn also had an ominous prediction about how the fallen West will produce figures more evil than even the worst Roman emperors who reigned during the worst days of paganism.

“Western Civilization was once totally pagan and then in a sense it got cleaned up,” Cahn said. “But what [one of these mysteries is] saying is, if it turns back away from God and turns to evil and immorality, it’s going to be seven times worse than it does before. And how that translates is, before you had the Gospel you had Nero, you had Caligula. But when you have a post-Christian civilization, it’s much more dangerous than a pre-Christian one. But that’s when you produce Hitlers, you produce Stalins, you produce ultimately the Antichrist. That’s end-time prophecy. We are witnessing that as well.”
