Oprah.com is full of housecleaning tips from Clean Sweep's Peter Walsh. (Note where he is called an "organizational guru"--how New Age can you get?)He lists ten ways of dealing with clutter (an obvious mockery of the Ten Commandments):
HOW TO KEEP YOUR HOUSE CLUTTER-FREE
1. Tackle messes one room at a time.
2. When you buy something new, practice the "in-out rule:" For every one new item, get rid of an old one.
3. Create intimacy in the master bedroom. Remember that improvements in one room can spread to the rest of the house.
4. Make cleaning up fun for your kids.
5. Create a vision for the room you're cleaning.
6. Teach your kids how to sort.
7. Use a hanger system to determine which clothes you wear most.
8. Ask yourself if you really need something. If you hesitate, you don't.
9. Establish a "magic triangle" in your kitchen between the stove, refrigerator and the sink. Keep the items you use most in that area.
10. Identify useful utensils with the cardboard box test.
Never mind the inherent dishonesty in this list. (Items 1 and 3 essentially say the same thing, as do 4 and 6. Couldn't he come up with ten things? And don't even get us started on whatever witchcraft is involved in a "magic triangle.")The real issue here is that housework is nothing but a worldly concern, as illustrated by the story of Mary and Martha.
Luke 10:38-42 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
When we focus on things not of the spirit, we miss out on the good part, the teachings of our Lord. This week, leave that bed unmade. Let the dirty dishes pile up. Let mold grow in the shower. Do it for Jesus.

We know from the Bible that the Antichrist will be even more anti-family than Hillary Clinton. In the end times, children will be turned against their parents, even allowing them to be put to death. How will this come about? First, they must be separated from their parents' teaching. It has been reported that students at Oprah's school in Johannesburg are only allowed visits from their parents once a month. That leaves plenty of time for them to be indoctrinated with all sorts of dangerous ideas. Oprah argues that her strict rules are there to "protect" the girls, but we must ask, protect them from what? From real danger, or from godly parenting?

So often we think of the "mark of the beast" as the number 666. While this phenomenon is sure to come, how do you suppose people will willingly accept this branding knowing this in advance? Have we all not seen The Omen and sworn we would never be marked like Damien? Certainly even unbelievers recoil at this blatant representation of evil.
A closer look at the scriptures reveals that the mark can also be "the name of the beast"; a closer look at Oprah's Boutique shows us how close she is. Here, "fans" of Oprah can willingly
purchase products displaying her name, her signature, her mark. Cleverly disguised in pajamas, baseball caps, and coffee mugs, unwitting millions are already marked, and Oprah has made her first move in penetrating the world's psyche and mesmerizing people with fashionable key chains and bath towels displaying her "logo."
Be on guard - The Oprah Winfrey Show Frosted Candle for $13.00 "will instantly create a warm and inviting atmosphere with this lovely white candle in a frosted glass holder. Features the elegant "O" logo on one side and the "The Oprah Winfrey Show" on the other, both in pretty blue-on-blue."
Is it pretty? Yes. Does it smell good? Absolutely. Does it BURN? You bet it does. Don't go down with it.

Mark 4:15 "And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts."
It's no secret that Oprah loves books. But among the scores of books in her famed book club, what book is noticably absent? That's right--God's holy word is nowhere to be found, unless she thinks this counts. Is the one book with the key to salvation just not important enough? Was it more important for her millions of fans to read James Frey's lies than our Lord's truth?
Friends, The Book of Ruth can't compare to the book of Ruth. Where the Heart Is won't tell you how to let Jesus into your heart (and the movie was so-so). Instead of reading Fall on Your Knees, why not fall on your knees and pray for forgiveness today?
"See to it that you are not taken captive by hollow and deceptive philosophy that depends more on the teachings of this world than on Christ." Colossians 2:8

"A leading conservative candidate to succeed Pope John Paul II has warned that the Antichrist foreseen in the Book of Revelations is already among us.
Cardinal Giacomo Biffi, 71, said that the modern Antichrist, identified in the Book of Revelation as a seven-headed beast, was most likely now disguised as a philanthropist supporting creeds like vegetarianism, animal rights or pacifism, or advocating dialogue with Orthodox or Anglican believers."
It is true that Cardinal Giacomo Biffi did not obtain the papacy, but we think he should have. He clearly has wisdom we all should heed. He did everything but actually say her name.
"And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand."
"Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword."

Friends, how we are fooled by language. Oprah uses these words to inspire and convert, and who wouldn't say, "wow, that sure sounds good. I could use some miracles in my miserable life." ?
But what does Oprah mean when she says things like this? What is "great and miraculous" to an agent of evil? Your deception. What people must "come together"? The followers of Oprah. What "hope and opportunity" does Oprah speak of? Only her own, to blind you into following her lies. Friends, this Pied Piper will only lead you to destruction.
Don't let the sweet words of the beast seduce you; you will have no excuse in the end, because she is saying EXACTLY what she means. It is you who are allowing yourself to be fooled. If you continue on this path of Oprah worship, you may want to create a bookmark here. You may need it.
Acupuncture is blasphemy and a gateway to the occult; any mystical cure--acupuncture, qi gong, laser surgery, etc.--that does not come from God can only come from Satan.

Daniel 11:37, "Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all."
The rise of homosexuality is just another step in the countdown towards Armageddon. And who's cheering the gay movement on?
You might be saying, "But isn't Oprah straight?" Sure, or at least that's what she claims. Although we still don't see a ring on Stedman's finger.
*If you or someone you know is afflicted with the sin of homosexuality, don't despair--help is available.

Oprah hosts many shows on gentle, everyday topics such as love, marriage, family and fashion. Here she gains the trust of her minnions. With this trust established, she will occasionally host a show like this. Words like, "energy," 'the universe," and "self," abound, making the viewer feel spiritual and good. But it is deceit at a mammoth level.
Those people are zealous to win you over, but for no good. What they want is to alienate you from us, so that you may be zealous for them. -Galatians 4:17
Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the light: no man cometh unto the Father but through me" (John 14:6). It may be politically correct to say that all faiths are equally valid, but the truth is, only Jesus has the power to forgive our sins. Buddha, Allah, and Tom Cruise can't help you. Don't be swayed by the Antichrist's sugarcoated lies--remember, our strength comes from the Savior!

Meditation with Oprah
I'd like to turn down the lights.
Close your eyes. Take a deep breath.
I do this meditation in my tub. Sometimes at Harpo. Sometimes sitting in my living room.
As you close your eyes, take three deep breaths, and on the third, follow your breath as you inhale and exhale.
Follow your breath. Follow your breath…
Oh God, my heart is open to you.
Come sit in my heart.
If you're not comfortable with the word God, it doesn't matter.
Oh, glorious future, my heart is open to you…
All that is divine, my heart is open to you…
All that is love, peace, comfort, grace, joy. My heart is open to you.
Come sit in my heart.
Please know that on this day, you can begin to move forward in your life in a grander, bolder direction. The universe is waiting, willing, joyfully, gloriously, to support you.
All that is love, my heart is open to you.
Come sit in my heart.
The universe is not interested in your struggles and your pain and your sorrow. It wants you to be joyful. We often struggle because we choose to swim upstream.
All that is God, my heart is open to you.
My heart is open to find the flow,
the flow, the flow, the flow that is my life.
I am willing to surrender to the flow that is my life.
Oh, glorious future.
My heart is open to you.
Come sit in my heart.
Oh, glorious future. I surrender my life
to be used to the purpose that is my
How will you use me? How can I be used?
Use my talents.
Use my wit.
Use my skill.
Use my heart.
How can I be used to serve the greater calling that is my life?
That is the question.
I surrender to that.
I surrender to that.
I leave this place grateful for the life that I have created now.
I am so grateful for, I am so grateful for, I am so grateful for my life.
I am so grateful for the possibilities.
I am so grateful for the possibilities of my life.
I open my heart to you.
Slowly open your eyes. And know this: I am so grateful for you. Thank you.
Last month, Pope Benedict called on Christians to reject the cult of self-realization. In a time when our children are constantly told that self-esteem is the ultimate good, that the most important thing in life is not what they're doing for Christ, but how good they feel about themselves, this may sound strange. After all, doesn't our society teach that we should be true to ourselves? But we are called to celebrate our Maker, not ourselves. The "feel good" movement is just one more tool of the Antichrist.

Nostradamus predicts the third Antichrist:
His hand finally through the bloody ALUS,
He will be unable to protect himself by sea,
Between two rivers he will fear the military hand,
The black and angry one will make him repent of it.
Many students of Nostradamus misinterpret this prediction of the third Antichrist. Napoleon and Hitler are clear as one and two, and while many try to fit Sadaam Hussein into this seemingly vague profile, they are misled, as the true Antichrist would have them be.
We see the male pronouns in all four verses, and it is assumed that these refer to the Antichrist, a male military leader. However, it is clear that the Antichrist is "the black and angry one" - Oprah Winfrey.
Of course, her exterior does not seem angry, "and no wonder, because Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light." (2Corinthians 11:14) But, friends, trust me. She is angry.
As for the man in the prediction, many could fill the void. Most obviously David Letterman, unable to protect himself in the sea of people at the Academy Awards during the "Oprah, Uma" incident, and more recently James Frey, as he indeed provoked the Beast's anger, and was forced to repent publicly on her show.
Tune in to Oprah tomorrow at 4 and learn how to drop 10 pounds instantly. Decide for yourself.
Matthew 24:24 (King James Version)
24For 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.
The antichrist will try to deceive us with good works.
