StandingWatch

Proclaiming the warnings of prophecy for our times and announcing the good news of the coming Kingdom of God

Oct 24, 2014

Do NOT Pray to Angels!

Recently, Pope Francis encouraged Roman Catholic Church members to pray to the "archangels" Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, and to recite the prayer to "Saint Michael" often. This program shows you why it is extremely dangerous to pray to or contact angels, and it explains that the Bible prohibits you from doing so. It also warns you that you might instead contact fallen angels or demons, who are also called "familiar spirits," since they want to familiarize themselves with you. We are offering our free booklet, "Angels, Demons and the Spirit World."

Current Events

This Week in the News

We begin with reports on America’s new military adventure in the Middle East which will at best require a lengthy engagement for many years to come—with boots on the ground—and seems to be, at worst, destined to utter failure with devastating consequences for the USA. Even liberal newspapers, magazines and websites point out that President Obama has forsaken his [perceived] role as “peacekeeper” and has become a “war president.” Bild Online wrote that because of his weak leadership, he is leaving behind a world of chaos. At the same time, Germany’s military is in a terrible condition, and voices are being heard to transform its “military feet of clay” into feet of iron.

In other news, we report on Eric Holder’s resignation (sort of) and Julia Pierson's resignation as Secret Service director becoming effective immediately; then the disturbing fact that married couples are now a minority in the USA.

We conclude with addressing Russia’s ongoing threats and Japan’s links to Neo-Nazis along with quoting the Pope's urging that we are to pray to angels!
