The True Christ vs False Christs
Matthew 24:24. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
We recently addressed the above subject in response to an interview by a local TV Station and a Theologian and Professor of the Atlantic School of Theology in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and their discussion about the Birth of Christ and the Celebration of Christmas.
The following was our response.

Subject: Corrections and Edifications
This is in response to your interview with David Deane in an attempt to give people a better understanding of ‘Christmas’.
We will use two questions you raised, as confirmation that once again you deceived your viewers with false and misleading information.
Q. Was Jesus real?
No person is able to know Christ and the Spirit he was of (Luke 9:55), unless God reveals Christ to a person. Flesh and blood is not able to accomplish this. Christ cannot be taught (Matthew 16:17; 1 Cor. 2:10; Gal. 1:16).
Q. Who were the three wise men?
Nowhere is it recorded that there were three wise men. The Word of God refers to ‘wise men coming from the east’, and to give you a better understanding of the use of the words ‘wise men’ we direct you to: Gen. 41:8; Ex. 7:11; 36:4; Deut. 1:13; 1:15; Esther 1:13; 6:13; Job 15:18; 34:2, etc., etc.
The wisdom David Deane speaks of is according to man’s wisdom (1 Cor. 2:4-7). The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him, neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor. 2:14).
Several times during the interview he used the word interpretation, while the Word of God is not of any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20). The Word of God is God (John 1:1). It is not a story book. In fact you and David did not even get the story straight. Your interview was literally an abomination. As a blind guide and David as the false teacher, your viewers were once again deceived about the real story and meaning of the Birth of Christ.
He that is spiritual judgeth (discerneth) all things, yet he himself is judged of no man (1 Cor. 2:15).
For a better understanding of the deceptions of this world, we invite you to read the article ‘Atlantic School of Theology – Halifax, Nova Scotia’ listed on our website www.aworlddeceived.ca.
Our message remains the same: Ye must repent and turn from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18). Without the Baptism of Repentance (Matthew 3:8; Mark 1:4; Luke 3:3) you will remain spiritually blind and separated from God and the Word of God will forever remain a mystery to you, which was kept secret since the world began (Matthew 13:35; Mark 4:11; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:7; Eph. 3:3-9; Col. 1:26; Rev. 10:7).
All of the pages and articles listed on our website explain how and by whom you have been deceived and what you must do to be reunited with the only true and living God.
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:13,14).
All we can do is stand at the door and knock but it is up to every individual to open the door (Rev. 3:20).
Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).
We welcome your questions.
In His Service.

We believe that history distorted the story of the 'wise men' since there were three gifts; gold, frankincense and myrrh, so they decided that there must have been three wise men. Also, the 'wise men' were not Kings, this is another deception that has been misunderstood and distorted.
You can follow the history of the Celebration of Christmas in the article 'Christmas: Strictly a Pagan Celebration' listed on this website under the Listing of Articles.
The wisdom and knowledge of God cannot be taught by mankind through Religious Doctrines, Bible Colleges, Seminaries, Theologians, Scholars or any other means. What they teach you is an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; 2 Cor. 11:13-15) and this is how the whole world has been deceived (Rev. 12:9).
It is only by the revelation of Jesus Christ that mankind can come to the knowledge of God (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Gal. 1:12,16; Eph. 3:3,5; Rev. 1:1). During the journey of Repentance God teaches all those that belong to Him in His wisdom and knowledge (John 14:26; Col. 1:26-28) and converts and transforms them into His likeness (Gen. 2:7; Deut. 32:18; Isaiah 43:1; 43:7; 43:21; 44:2,21,24; 49:5; Jeremiah 1:5; Gal. 4:19; Romans 12:2).
Our Mission Statement reflects the Mystery of God, which was kept secret since the world began (Matthew 13:11; 13:35; Mark 4:11; Luke 8:10; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:7,10; 4:1; Eph. 3:3-9; Col. 1:26; Rev. 10:7). It also reflects the reasons for the Decline of the Nations and the Signs of the Times we live in, which have also been explained in our articles ‘The Decline and Fall of a Divided Nation’ and ‘The Signs of the Times being Ignored’ posted on this website.
For those that are not familiar with the Book of Revelation of the Word of God, it should be noted that most of it describes the events during the timeframe of the latter days, which are the days since God dwelt in the earth in the name of Jesus Christ two thousand years ago. Most events described in the Book of Revelation have already taken place, but other events still have to take place before the great and dreadful day of the Lord (Luke 21:20-28; Joel 2:31; Malachi 4:5).
Daniel and his associates were taken to Babylon in the third year of Jehoiakim in 605 BC. While in Babylon, he received and recorded many visions, and like the apostles, Daniel questioned God and said, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? (Daniel 12:9)
Or in another verse that records: but thou, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of the end:....(Daniel 12:4).
We believe that many events have taken place just in the last twenty years, through which God has revealed that we are living in the times of Daniel's visions, which were revealed to him approximately 2600 years ago and those that are recorded in Chapter 12 of the Book of Daniel.
Don’t concern yourself with the events that are still to take place or the times when they will occur. God is longsuffering and the only message that is important is our message of Repentance and we invite you to study what that means, so that you may be able to hear and understand our communication (John 8:43-45). All we can do is stand at the door and knock but it is up to every individual to open the door (Rev. 3:20).
Many people already recognize that this world is undergoing a perplexing and inexplainable transition. Many people even use the word 'scary' to describe the many horrid changes.
As part of the work of our Ministry, we have attempted to reach out to Federal and Provincial Government Officials and National and Local Media Personalities and Contacts, but all of them did ignore our testimony and our message of Repentance.
Recently we received two signed letters from Ralph Goodale, the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness in Canada. He responded to a number of emails, in which we expressed our concerns of a number of social issues and directed them to our website, in the hope that they would turn to the true and living God.
In our reply we addressed a number of issues as part of a changing world, issues that are all intrinsically connected by the natural spirit of mankind. We did copy Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada and Geoff Regan, the Speaker of the House of Commons.
The Problematic World Order in a Changing World
- Homosexuality and Same-Sex Marriage
- Assisted Dying
- Imploding Health Care System
- Imploding Mental Health Crisis
- Imploding PTSD Crisis
- Opioid Drug Abuse Crisis
- Safe Injection Sites
- Legalization of Marijuana
- Teenage Suicides
- The Destructive Forces of Social Media
- Decline of the Media Industry
- Political Turmoil & Global Unrest
- Failing Economies
- Greater Diversity between Rich & Poor
- Decline and Fall of the Nations
- Decline of Religion
- Rise of Islam through Muslim Population Growth
- Sexual Abuse and Decline of Moral Values
- Broken Education System
- Major increase in various Sicknesses, Afflictions, Pestilences, etc. CNN reported on February 4, 2014, that according to the WHO cancer cases are expected to rise 57% in 20 years in imminent 'human disaster.'
- Major increase in Natural Disasters - Earthquakes, Tornadoes, Tsunamis, Typhoons, Famines, Floods, Droughts and Wildfires
- Breakdown of the Family Unit and Disobedient and Disrespectful Children
Considering the above issues, as part of a deteriorating world, mankind is not able to understand the spiritual aspect of Daniel's visions (1 Cor. 2:14), and continues to ignore our voice and message, similar to what took place in 2349 BC during the days of Noah.
Notwithstanding, it is our hope for all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity (1 Timothy 1:4-7).
There is no name under heaven, other than the name of Jesus Christ, that mankind can be saved (Acts 4:10-12).
Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).
