Brother G. Reckart is my good friend and former Pastor. His many years and long hours of anointed study and research, always brings to surface the most remarkable, penetrating analysis that I have seen anywhere. His style is unique, rising to meet the challenging issues of our time. This booklet is not superficial, although the language is quite simple. It will doubtless stir up legions of detractors, as the Truth always does. I have followed Pastor Reckart's methods of study and research, and the following are some introductory thoughts to this new book.
To say that paganism subverted the Faith of the early Apostolic Church and produced the apostasy is a generalization. More specifically, it was a mystic-esoteric form of paganism called "Gnosticism." Modern Oneness ministers and writers, in tracing the origins of trinitarianism to Greek philosophy, have failed to go far enough. They need to research Gnosticism, which historians identify as the chiefest of the pagan "Mystery Religions" and the main antagonist of early Christianity. The Apostle Paul called it: "The Mystery of Iniquity" already working in his day (2Thes. 2:7). He also said that the Endtime Antichrist Apostasy will arise from this same "Mystery of Iniquity." Gnosticism produced the apostasy among the early Church and led to the formation of "Christian" Gnosticism or the Catholic Church. It is easy to see then, how this mystery system must be understood in order to fully identify the apostasy of the endtime.
Apostate, paganized Jews remaining in Babylon after the remnant had returned to Palestine in the time of Ezra and Nehemiah, transposed the Babylonian Eden Gnostic mysteries into a Judaistic system of interpretation. This Jewish Gnostic system is preserved today in the "Kabbalah" (or Cabala) section of the Jewish Talmud. In fact, this Talmud's official name is "The Babylonian Talmud!" It's deadly philosophy has been the primary source, or "mother" of:
- Secret Orders (Freemasonry, etc.).
- Gentile Gnosticism.
- The early Christian apostasy (via Gnosticism, both Jewish and Gentile).
- Sabbatean or "Holiness of Sin" subversion.
- Revolutionary movements: (Note: The Sabbatean subversion gave rise to the Illuminati, Socialism, Communism, and Environmental Globalism).
- Evolution theories falsely called science.
- Serpent Seed Doctrine.
- Modern forms of Satanism/Witchcraft (the study of Cabalism/Gnosticism is a prerequisite to entering into satanism or witchcraft.
- Feminism and the NOW movement.
- Homosexuality (in Cabalist/Gnostic philosophy, the highest level of Deity, called the "Ein Soph," is the androgynous male/female, thus sexual perversion is a high level of spiritual and physical attainment in reaching godhead in the mysteries).
The New Age Movement.
Gnosticism was based on a before-creation, pre-existent, invisible world of trinities consisting of male and female deities. Note: pre-existence, an essential concept in the development of the Trinity Doctrine, is first found expressed here (the pre-existent Eternal Son). Gnostic speculation claims the serpent instructed Eve into the secret knowledge of this pre-existent world of Gods and Goddesses. In Gnosticism; God, in the Garden of Eden account, was alleged to be a power-mad renegade from the pre-existent world. Being in submission to this God was evil. Male domination was alleged to be a cruel device crafted by the power-mad male God. Eve personified the female aspect of Deity and by partaking of the tree and possessing this secret knowledge, she could become a Goddess. The serpent becomes the benefactor and sin becomes holy. The serpent instructed Eve; she instructed Adam, and by extension, all women with Gnostic knowledge become the rightful instructors and preachers of religious knowledge to the rest of mankind. This is the ancient Satanic philosophy that is guiding the great whore system and militant feminism, quite literally the spirit of the Devil, rebellion, and WITCHcraft. Most modern day women caught up in the spirit of feminism know nothing of the secret guiding hand of Gnostic philosophy, feminist leaders certainly do, and they believe in it.
In recent times, we are witnessing the re-emergence of Gnosticism called the "New Age Movement." This perverse, woman led, (H. P. Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Shirley McClain, etc.) many faceted occultism, is gaining momentum everyday. They are anticipating the official ushering-in of the New Age, when the contents of an alleged secret compartment, located in the bowels of the great Sphinx of Egypt are unveiled to the world. Allegedly, inside this creature, are ages long religious documents that when made known, will unite all mankind into the New Age of Aquarius.
They believe the Sphinx, with the body of a lion and the head of a woman, is one of the supreme symbols of the New Age Kingdom to come (the lion symbolizes authority). [Another one is the great pyramid of Egypt (look on the obverse side of your dollar bill).] A New World Order is at birth, instructed and guided by the "Gnostic Mysteries," and interpreted by women. The two witnesses will doubtless pay with their lives for exposing this "Sodom-Egypt-Jerusalem" Mysterious Babylon (Rev. 11:8). The world focusing on Jerusalem and a Temple being rebuilt, should be a flag that this Gnostic mystery system will not come from the ruins of that ancient city deep in the heart of Assyria, modern day Iraq. Nothing in the book of Revelation takes place in ancient Babylon. We must look for a spiritual replacement, even Rome, spiritually likened to Babylon the Great, doesn't have all the qualifications. Although the Catholic Church will play a vital role in the endtime, we would be wise to consider that she is only a part of the whole, and not the original mystery of iniquity.
Apostolics everywhere must realize, that this booklet by Brother Reckart, is bringing into focus vital issues for our times. These issues are considered not relevant and only mildly interesting to some, while to others, very relevant, but just too controversial to touch. Make no mistake about it, Gnostic feminism, with its distortion of good and evil, God and satan, and the God-ordained roles of the male and female at home and at Church; played a major part in the apostasy during the early centuries of Christianity, and it is doing the same today. A bi-sexual ministry of male and female is the stepping-stone to a tri-sexual ministry of male, female, and homosexual. In other words, women in the Ministry must first be widely accepted, before a homosexual ministry will be. If Apostolics do not draw the line NOW, on the women preacher issue, it will become common place for sodomites to fill our pulpits soon. Are they not at the doors and in the pews?
I know Brother Reckart well. I have known him to be a consistent, valiant defender of Apostolic womanhood. He has taken pen in hand, to address this most important and timely issue. Those unacquainted with and hate the sharp, terse words of a Prophet, will be his detractors. Searchers for more light and understanding, yea, those "In Search Of The Apostolic Woman," will rejoice,
