Pope Francis to Infect the Christian World with a Sickness of the Soul

“Freedom” from God is a coming ‘Sickness of the Soul’ that requires worldwide prayer; a worldwide prayer that cries out to the Heavens: “Deliver us from evil, O Lord!”

By Judi McLeod —— Bio and Archives–February 29, 2020

“The Vatican hasn’t said what exactly Francis has come down with, but he was coughing and blowing his nose during Ash Wednesday Mass this week. (Fox News, Feb. 28, 2020)

Global Education Pact

“His illness comes amid an outbreak of the coronavirus in Italy that has sickened more than 650 people, almost all of them in the north. Rome had three cases, but all three recovered.”

Pope Francis, may, according to God’s Will, rally back from whatever it is that is ailing him.  But in the meantime,  he is inflicting upon humanity—on a deadline of May 14— ‘A Sickness of the Soul’.

All Marxist-inspired projects are introduced in a fashion that can be best described as cunning.  The ‘Sickness of the Soul’ set to infect the entire Christian world, come May 14, is benignly being called the ‘Global Education Pact’ that will usher in a “new humanism”.

No one does a better job describing the ‘Global Education Pact’ than writer David Martin in today’s Canada Free Press (CFP) column.

According to the Vatican, God “Withdraws” so we can be “Free.”

“Archbishop Vincenzo Zani, secretary of the Congregation for Catholic Education who has been tasked with organizing the event explains the theological vision behind this “new humanism,” saying that God “withdraws” in order that man might be free. Vatican Abp organizing Global Education Pact touts pope’s ‘new humanism’ where God ‘withdraws’ (David Martin, CFP, Feb. 29, 2020)

 

New Humanism “advocates “Freedom” from God”

“He said that the teaching on Creation – which he says is not exclusively a Christian one – places the focus on man. “It’s the centrality of the person. God creates but then withdraws. He leaves man, saying, ‘Go!”’

No other religion advocates man to leave God, telling him: ‘Go’!

More details on this Vatican-contrived divorce of Christianity from the Almighty are available from a Sept.16, 2019—live stream of the popular Mother Miriam of the Station of the Cross Catholic Radio Network:

Pope’s proposal for ‘new humanism’ would ‘wipe out Christianity’

 

“Freedom” from God is a coming ‘Sickness of the Soul’

It should go without saying that May 14 will be here before we know it.

The imperative question should now be: ‘Where will Christianity be after Pope Francis enshrines his “New Humanism”?

David Martin warns the New Humanism “advocates “Freedom” from God”.

CHRISLAM: POPE FRANCIS CALLS FOR GLOBAL WEALTH DISTRIBUTION, SAYS TAX CUTS ARE A SIN, DOESN’T MENTION VATICAN IS WORLD’S WEALTHIEST CORPORATION

“Every year hundreds of billions of dollars, which should be paid in taxes to fund health care and education, accumulate in tax haven accounts,” Pope Francis told participants in a Vatican seminar, “thus impeding the possibility of the dignified and sustained development of all social agents.” “Today’s structures of sin include repeated tax cuts for the richest people, often justified in the name of investment and development,” Francis told the meeting organized by the Pontifical Academy for Social Sciences. During his discourse, the pope repeated his conviction that poverty is on the rise worldwide and “the poor increase around us.”

February 6, 2020

Tax cuts for the wealthy constitute a “structure of sin,” Chrislam Pope Francis said Wednesday in a passionate address calling for international wealth redistribution.

Communists and Socialists are always concerned about other people’s money, and getting their hands on it is their all-consuming thought. Pope Francis, good Communist that he and all popes are, is no different. This is why you see him popping up constantly at meetings with CEOs who control billion dollar corporations, currying favor and making sure he is close to the money. Did you know that the Vatican is the world’s wealthiest company?

“And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.” Luke 2:1-3 (KJB)

We have told you many times that the first time Jesus came, it was under Roman occupation at a time of global taxation. At His Second Coming, 7 years after the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church takes place, Rome will again be in power and there will be global taxation. This is why you are now seeing Pope Francis gathering his children together to form the end times One World Religion of Chrislam, and why he endlessly talks about wealth redistribution and global taxation.

Here’s a simple question no one ever seems to ask. Since the Vatican vaults contain a disproportionate amount of the world’s great art and literary treasures valued in the billions of dollars, how come no one ever asks Pope Francis why they don’t sell some of them and give it to the poor? If they did that they would have endless financial resources with which to help the poor out of poverty, but they don’t do it. Yeah, someone should ask the pope that sometime.

Pope Francis Calls for Global Wealth Redistribution

FROM BREITBART NEWS: “Every year hundreds of billions of dollars, which should be paid in taxes to fund health care and education, accumulate in tax haven accounts,” Pope Francis told participants in a Vatican seminar, “thus impeding the possibility of the dignified and sustained development of all social agents.”

“Today’s structures of sin include repeated tax cuts for the richest people, often justified in the name of investment and development,” Francis told the meeting organized by the Pontifical Academy for Social Sciences.

During his discourse, the pope repeated his conviction that poverty is on the rise worldwide and “the poor increase around us.”

With the passage of time and the advances of civilization the number of poor people increases rather than diminishing, Francis similarly asserted last June, and “the poor are always poorer, and today they are poorer than ever.”

As a Brookings Institution report noted in late 2018, however, the world is currently experiencing “the lowest prevalence of extreme poverty ever recorded in human history — less than 8 percent,” and that number falls with each passing year.

According to the widely used “international poverty line,” people are considered to be in “extreme poverty” if they live on less than $1.90 per day or its equivalent.

In the world today, less than 10 percent of the global population lives in extreme poverty, whereas just 30 years ago (1990), some 37 percent of the world lived in extreme poverty. Two centuries ago, nearly everyone in the world lived in extreme poverty. While in the year 1800 almost 90 percent of the world’s population subsisted on less than $1 a day, that percentage had been constantly falling, dropping below 20 percent in the year 2000 and below 10 percent in the present day.

It is not only “extreme poverty” that is falling, however. The global poverty rate has been falling across every single poverty line, whether the bar is set at $1.90 a day or $10 a day. In his address Wednesday, the pope lamented that the per capita annual income in the world this year will be $12,000 “according to official reports.”

The Coming Global Tax and the Kingdom of Antichrist

According to data from the World Bank, however, annual per capita income worldwide has been increasing dramatically year by year and in 2018 was $17,948. Furthermore, the World Bank reveals, global per capita income has increased by over 200 percent since 1990 and is now more than three times higher than its 1990 level of $5,498.

This does not suggest that poverty is not a problem or that poverty reduction is not a worthy and important goal. It does mean, however, that global poverty is not increasing but is decreasing rapidly. In free market economies that favor wealth creation such as the United States, “extreme poverty” has virtually been eradicated.

For example, in 2005, 78.3 percent of households living in “poverty” (by U.S. standards) had air conditioning, whereas in 1970, 36.0 percent of all households had air conditioning.

“If extreme poverty exists in the midst of wealth (also extreme) it is because we have allowed the gap to widen to become the largest in history,” the pope said. “The world’s 50 richest people have $2.2 trillion worth of assets. These fifty people alone could fund the health care and education of every poor child in the world, whether through taxes, philanthropic initiatives, or both.”

It must be acknowledged, however, that no such “gap” exists between the wealthy and the poor, since the vast majority of people live somewhere in the middle. There is not a cluster of ridiculously rich people followed by an immense mass of very poor people. The majority of people are neither very rich nor very poor. (Click to Source)

Pope Francis Warns Catholics in Morocco Not to Convert Muslims to Christianity

Head of Catholic Church issues warning to his Moroccan followers against proselytism 

By: Jay Greenberg  |@NeonNettle on 3rd April 2019 @ 12.00am

Pope Francis warned Catholics in Morocco not to attempt to convert Muslims to Christianity, as he addressed a large crowd of his Moroccan flock on Sunday.

The head of the Catholic Church issued the warning during an address at St. Peter’s Cathedral in Rabat, Morocco before roughly 400 Christian followers.

During the speech, in which the pope also discussed the rights of migrants and promoted open borders, the pope urged Christians to unite with Muslims, before he warned: “Please, no proselytism!”Trying to convert people to Christianity “always leads to an impasse,” said the head of the 1.3 billion-member church, as reported by Agence France-Presse.

In Morocco, there are currently around 30,000 Catholics and 10,000 Protestants in Morocco and they make up less than 1% of the population there, where the majority of citizens follow Sunni Islam.

Following his official visit to the Islamic North African state, Pope Francis blasted nationalism and likened populists to Hitler as he pushed for open borders.

The head of the Catholic church blasted the rise of populism in Western countries, claiming the movement gains followers by stoking fear in the same way as the Nazis did in the 1930s.

The pope warned his followers not to convert Muslims to Christianity, urging them to unite with them instead In a joint declaration on Sunday, Pope Francis and Morocco’s King Mohammed VI signed the “Jerusalem Pact” which they described as a “symbol of peaceful coexistence” for Christians, Jews, and Muslims, according to DW.

Jerusalem was “common patrimony of humanity and especially the followers of three monotheistic religions,” an official statement read.

“The specific multi-religious character, the spiritual dimension and the particular cultural identity of Jerusalem … must be protected and promoted,” the statement added.

The spiritual leader of the world’s Catholics was in Morocco to promote interreligious dialogue.

It was the first visit to Morocco by a pope in 34 years. King Mohammed VI is head of a committee created by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to protect and promote Jerusalem’s religious, cultural and architectural heritage.

Last year, US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, causing anger across the Muslim world, especially from Palestinians that see the city as the capital of their future state.

Pope Francis met with Moroccan King Mohammed VI to promote inter-religious dialogue

“The Church grows not through proselytism but by attraction,” Francis said, according to Reuters.

“This means, dear friends, that our mission as baptized persons, priests and consecrated men and women, is not really determined by the number or size of spaces that we occupy, but rather by our capacity to generate change and to awaken wonder and compassion.

“Pope Francis has used his two-day trip to push inter-faith dialogue with Islamic leaders.He has also backed Moroccan King Mohammed VI’s efforts to spread a form of Islam that promotes inter-religious dialogue and rejects violence in God’s name.

“[T]he Pope also stressed the need for inter-religious dialogue, saying people should resist ‘classifying ourselves according to different moral, social, ethnic or religious criteria,'” reported Reuters.

The U.S. State Department reports, “According to [Morocco’s] constitution, the country is a Muslim state, with full sovereignty, and Islam is the religion of the state. … “The law penalizes anyone who ’employs enticements to undermine the faith’ or convert a Muslim to another faith and provides punishments of six months to three years’ imprisonment and a fine of 200 to 500 dirhams ($21 to $53).

“It also provides the right to a court trial for anyone accused of such an offense.””Voluntary conversion is not a crime under the law,” according to the State Department.”Sunni Muslims and Jews are the only religious groups recognized in the constitution as native to the country; other faiths are viewed as foreign” in Morrocco, reported the State Department.

“Many foreign-resident Christian churches are registered as associations. Registered foreign-resident churches include the Roman Catholic, Russian Orthodox, Greek Orthodox, Protestant, and Anglican Churches, which maintain different forms of official status.” (Click to Source)

 

 

Vatican Cardinal Warns the West ‘Will Disappear’ Due to Mass Migration

Vatican Cardinal Robert Sarah says countries are being ‘invaded’ by migrants

By: Jay Greenberg  |@NeonNettle on 20th April 2019 @ 12.00pm

Vatican Cardinal Robert Sarah has warned that he believed the West “will disappear” because of mass migration, saying that Western countries are being “invaded” by migrants.In his new book, Evening Draws Near and the Day is Nearly Over, Sarah warns that “Islam will invade the world” and “completely change culture, anthropology, and moral vision.”The Catholic clergy member’s book is causing controversy in Europe because it explicitly identifies migration from “predominantly Muslim” nations as a harbinger of the continent’s collapse.“If the West continues in this fatal way, there is a great risk that, due to a lack of birth, it will disappear, invaded by foreigners, just as Rome has been invaded by barbarians,” said Sarah, adding, “My country is predominantly Muslim. I think I know what reality I’m talking about.”

European countries such as Italy have had an influx of migrants from African countries According to Infowars, the Cardinal also blamed the European Union for its “desire to globalize the world, ridding it of nations with their distinctive characteristics,” labeling the move “sheer madness.”

“The Brussels Commission thinks only about building a free market in the service of the great financial powers,” he continued.“The European Union no longer protects the peoples within it. “It protects the banks.”

In a previous video interview, Sarah warned that Europe had lost its roots and was dying because of fewer European natives having children. In recent interviews he has gone even further, noting that priests, bishops and cardinals within the Catholic Church have betrayed the teachings of Christ by pursuing political activism.Sarah’s comments put him at odds with the Pope, who has relentlessly promoted migration from African and Middle Eastern countries into Europe.

Sarah’s comments run counter to those of Pope Francis who is pushing for open borders According to the Cardinal, it is wrong to “use the word of God to promote migration,” and it is better “to help people flourish in their culture than to encourage them to come to Europe.”Sarah slammed mass migration as a “new form of slavery” because migrants end up “without work or dignity.”“Is that what the Church wants?” he asked.Sarah remained hopeful of the situation being reversed, asserting, “This is not the end of the world, the Church will rise.” (Click to Source)

Pope Francis: God Only ‘Permits’ Islam To Exist

The Pontiff’s statement attracts huge criticism from Catholic theologians

By: Daniel Newton  |@NeonNettle on 4th April 2019 @ 2.00pm © Neon Nettle

Pope Francis has clarified his provocative statement issued in Abu Dhabi, which seemingly suggested that God “wills” the existence of many religions.The statement appears to contradict the traditional doctrine of the Catholic Church, which teaches that the “one true religion subsists in the Catholic and Apostolic Church, to which the Lord Jesus committed the duty of spreading it abroad among all men.”Frances said in a joint statement with Grand Imam of Al-Azhar Ahmad Al-Tayyeb that the mixture of religions “are willed by God in His wisdom.”The statement ignited huge criticism from Catholic theologians who claimed it implied that God actively wills error, or that all religions are equal in paths to God. The Pontiff, on Wednesday, tried to explain that what God wills is fraternity among everyone, while only allowing a plurality of religions The former head of the U.S. bishops’ doctrinal office, Father Thomas Weinandy, said he felt the statement disturbing for its seeming reduction of Jesus Christ to just another guru.Have your say – ⇓ Hit the comments below Speaking to LifeSite News, Father Weinandy said, “What I find very sad and scandalously troubling.”“is that, in the midst of it all, Jesus is being insulted. He is reduced to the level of Buddha or Mohammed when in fact he is the Father’s beloved Messianic Son, the one in whom the Father is well pleased.”“The only religions that God positively willed are Judaism and Christianity for he himself founded these religions through his own positive divine actions and revelation,” Weinandy added. But according to various scholars, Islam, was born as a Christian heresy, and would be strange for God to will the heresy being proclaimed.The Pontiff, on Wednesday, tried to explain that what God wills is fraternity among everyone, while only allowing a plurality of religions.“But someone may wonder: why does the Pope go visit the Muslims and not just Catholics? Why are there so many religions? How is it that there are so many religions?” Francis said.“With the Muslims, we are descendants of the same Father, Abraham. Why does God allow there to be so many religions? God wanted to allow this. Scholastic theologians referred to God’s voluntas permissive [permissive will]. He wanted to allow this reality: that there are so many religions,” he said.

The Pope’s statement ignited huge criticism from Catholic theologians who claimed it implied that God actively wills error, “Some are born from culture, but they always look at heaven, they look at God,” he said.“But what God wills is brotherhood among us and in a special way – and this is the reason for this journey – with the Muslims, our brothers, and sisters, children of Abraham.”“We must not be frightened by the difference: God allowed this,” the pope continued.“We should be frightened if we do not work in brotherhood, to walk together in life.”But Father Weinandy thinks Francis’s clarification does not help.“The problem is that more than likely, the vast majority of the media and many other theologians and bishops will continue to interpret the original document in the manner that, as God willed Judaism and Christianity, so he also willed other religions – full stop,” he said.Back in 2017, Father Weinandy made public a letter he wrote to Pope Francis which criticized him for “intentionally ambiguous” teaching, the scorn of conservatives, and resistance to constructive criticism.Weinandy said the letter was made public because it “expresses the concerns of many more people than just me, ordinary people who’ve come to me with their questions and apprehensions.” (Click to Source)

Pope in Morocco urges Jerusalem be protected for all religions

Joint statement with king during visit to Rabat declares Israel’s capital the ‘common patrimony’ of Christians, Jews and Muslims

30 March 2019, 11:28 pm

ope Francis and Moroccan King Mohammed VI called on Saturday for Jerusalem to be preserved as a symbol of peaceful coexistence where Jews, Muslims and Christians can be allowed to worship freely.

Pope Francis joined the Moroccan monarch in declaring the city the “common patrimony” of Christians, Jews and Muslims, on the first day of a visit to the North African country.

The spiritual leader of the world’s 1.3 billion Catholics was invited by King Mohammed VI for the sake of “inter-religious dialogue,” according to Moroccan authorities.

In a joint statement, the two leaders said Jerusalem was “common patrimony of humanity and especially the followers of the three monotheistic religions,” during the pontiff’s visit to Rabat.

“The specific multi-religious character, the spiritual dimension and the particular cultural identity of Jerusalem… must be protected and promoted,” they said in the declaration released by the Vatican.

The statement contrasted sharply with a joint communique put out by Mohammed and Jordan’s King Abdullah on Thursday vowing to safegaurd Jerusalem against attempts to change its Islamic or Christian identity.

The statement Thursday made no mention of any Jewish link to Jerusalem.

Improving relations with other religions has been a priority for the Argentine pontiff, whose papacy has been marred by a wave of child sex abuse allegations against clergy.

Addressing thousands of Moroccans who had braved the rain to attend the welcome ceremony, Francis said it was “essential to oppose fanaticism.”

He stressed the need for “appropriate preparation of future religious guides”, ahead of meeting trainee imams later on Saturday.

Catholics are a tiny minority in the country where 99 percent of the population is Muslim. The king is revered across West Africa as “commander of the faithful.”

Speaking at the ceremony at the Tour Hassan mosque and nearby mausoleum in Rabat, Francis defended “freedom of conscience” and “religious freedom.”

“Live as brothers,” he told a crowd of around 25,000, after arriving from the airport in his Popemobile, passing rows of Moroccan and Vatican City flags.

An estimated 12,000 well-wishers packed the esplanade outside the partly-finished 12th century mosque, some in traditional dress, according to Moroccan officials.

Some 130,000 people across Rabat watched the first stage of the pope’s visit, which was beamed onto giant screens, officials said.

Francis will also visit an institute where around 1,300 students are studying to become imams and preachers, teaching “moderate Islam” and backed by the king.

“It’s a very significant event, the first time that a pope is welcomed to an institute for the training of imams,” said Vatican spokesman Alessandro Gisotti.

Rabat stepped up security ahead of the first papal visit to the North African country since John Paul II in 1985.

Buildings were repainted, streets decorated and lawns manicured for the pope’s two-day visit. (Click to Source)

DIVIDE AND CONQUER: POPE FRANCIS MEETS WITH MUSLIM KING IN MOROCCO AND DECLARES THAT JERUSALEM SHOULD NEVER BELONG SOLELY TO THE JEWS

Pope Francis joined the Moroccan monarch in declaring the city the “common patrimony” of Christians, Jews and Muslims, on the first day of a visit to the North African country. The spiritual leader of the world’s 1.3 billion Catholics was invited by King Mohammed VI for the sake of “inter-religious dialogue,” according to Moroccan authorities. The statement Thursday made no mention of any Jewish link to Jerusalem.

March 30, 2019

Pope Francis and Moroccan King Mohammed VI called on Saturday for Jerusalem to be preserved as a symbol of peaceful coexistence where Jews, Muslims and Christians can be allowed to worship freely.

Just like everything that comes out of the mouth of the Roman pope, it was a tiny nugget of truth encompassed about with layers and layers of lies. Yes, Jerusalem is claimed by Jews, Christians and Muslims, absolutely, but of those three only the first two are mentioned in the bible as being ordained by God. The Muslims are the bastard children of Abraham, and are specifically mentioned in the Bible as have none inheritance. The children of Abraham through Hagar are to be “cast out” as we see here:

“For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.”Galatians 4:22,23,30 (KJV)

So that takes care of Lie #1 of Pope Francis, let’s move on to the second whopper he told in Morocco. This idea that Jerusalem cannot belong solely to the Jews because it “has to be shared” is another oft-repeated fact that is just not so. The bible says  that the Battle of Armageddon, seen below in Joel 3, is fought over the fact that somebody, namely Antichrist, has “parted” God’s land of Israel in general, and Jerusalem in particular. That’s right, Jerusalem belongs to God.

“For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.” Joel 3:1,2 (KJV)

Isn’t it funny how whenever the Roman pontiff talks about Jerusalem, he never mentions that it is the capital of Israel and as such is not up to be shared by whoever feels like grabbing a piece of it? He speaks of Jerusalem like a commodity that can be bought and sold, and indeed it will be. By Antichrist in the time of Jacob’s trouble.

Pope in Morocco urges Jerusalem be protected for all religions

FROM THE TIME OF ISRAEL: Pope Francis joined the Moroccan monarch in declaring the city the “common patrimony” of Christians, Jews and Muslims, on the first day of a visit to the North African country. The spiritual leader of the world’s 1.3 billion Catholics was invited by King Mohammed VI for the sake of “inter-religious dialogue,” according to Moroccan authorities.

In a joint statement, the two leaders said Jerusalem was “common patrimony of humanity and especially the followers of the three monotheistic religions,” during the pontiff’s visit to Rabat.

“The specific multi-religious character, the spiritual dimension and the particular cultural identity of Jerusalem… must be protected and promoted,” they said in the declaration released by the Vatican.

The statement contrasted sharply with a joint communique put out by Mohammed and Jordan’s King Abdullah on Thursday vowing to safeguard Jerusalem against attempts to change its Islamic or Christian identity.

THE STATEMENT THURSDAY MADE NO MENTION OF ANY JEWISH LINK TO JERUSALEM.

Improving relations with other religions has been a priority for the Argentine pontiff, whose papacy has been marred by a wave of child sex abuse allegations against clergy.

Addressing thousands of Moroccans who had braved the rain to attend the welcome ceremony, Francis said it was “essential to oppose fanaticism.”

He stressed the need for “appropriate preparation of future religious guides”, ahead of meeting trainee imams later on Saturday.

Catholics are a tiny minority in the country where 99 percent of the population is Muslim. The king is revered across West Africa as “commander of the faithful.”

Speaking at the ceremony at the Tour Hassan mosque and nearby mausoleum in Rabat, Francis defended “freedom of conscience” and “religious freedom.”

“Live as brothers,” he told a crowd of around 25,000, after arriving from the airport in his Popemobile, passing rows of Moroccan and Vatican City flags.  (Click to Source)

Pope Francis may be the Antichrist; he just fulfilled an important prophecy warned about in Revelations by signing “peace deal” with Islamic leader

02/26/2019 / By JD Heyes

For anyone who’s keeping score, 100 percent of the terrorist attacks that have occurred in the West for at least the past two decades have been committed by Islamic extremists.

Followers of Christ, Buddhists, Hindus, and Jews have not hijacked airplanes and flown them into buildings. They haven’t rented vans and mowed people over. They haven’t attacked restaurants with AK-47s or certain events with pipe bombs. Radicalized followers of the Islamic faith committed these acts. 

And for good measure, radical Islamic groups like ISIS have taken over vast swaths of the Middle East, executing followers of other religions while mass murdering anyone else who refused to ascribe to their religious dogma.

So, it’s puzzling to Catholics and other followers of the Christian faith as to why Pope Francis has essentially, in their view, betrayed them by signing a pact that, Biblically speaking, amounts to the fulfillment of an  (Related: CounterThink with Mike Adams: are there possessed “Demoncrats” that walk among us?)‘end times’ prophecy.

According to the website Now the End Begins:

The pope and the grand imam of al-Azhar have signed a historic declaration of fraternity, calling for peace between nations, religions and races, in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths. Pope Francis, the leader of the world’s Catholics, and Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the head of Sunni Islam’s most prestigious seat of learning, arrived at the ceremony in Abu Dhabi hand-in-hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood.

What could be bad about this? After all, shouldn’t followers of different religious faiths get along? Not all followers would agree.

Is this a sign the End Times are upon us?

While Christians forgive and their Bible teaches them to love even ‘thy enemies,’ Islam’s Koran does not teach a similar tolerance of other faiths. In fact, according to Robert Spencer’s book, “The Complete Infidel’s Guide to the Koran,” the Islamic holy book “incites hatred and violence and is anti-democratic, anti-freedom, and intolerant of any other ideology.”

The book “focuses on the decrees toward Jews and Christians, how they were viewed by Muhammad, what ‘the infidels’ have done wrong and what the Koran has in store for them,” adds a summary.

Now The End Begins notes that in 2015, Francis said something unusual for a Catholic leader in an address to the United Nations. In addressing the U.N.’s General Assembly, the pontiff said that he had come to them “in my own name” — odd since he is supposedly the Vicar of Christ and as such speaks to the world through the divine spirit, not that of a ‘mortal’ Man.

Now, the site continues, Francis has made a “peace covenant” with the leader of Sunni Islam. The document makes several references to the assemblage of the world’s various religions but no Bible verses are contained within it and there is no connection with the word “god” and Bible patriarchs like Moses, Abraham, and others. 

Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb is today the most important man in Sunni Islam. As The Guardian reports, however, the signing of the document “was done in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and other faiths.”

Is this the beginning of a ‘one world religion’ some have asked? Clearly there was a concerted effort to ensure that all major faiths were represented at the ceremony in Abu Dhabi, but “over and over again,” Now The End Begins notes, “the word ‘God’ is used to simultaneously identify All and the God of Christianity.”

Also, the document “boldly declares that ‘the diversity of religions’ that we see in the world was ‘willed by God,’” the website continues.

The globalist elite has long sought the creation of a one-world religion because it would be a vehicle to unite the world’s people under a singular government. 

Is the pope the Bible’s recognized “antiChrist” and did he just take us closer to the singular world religion prophesied in Revelations? (Click to Source)

Rome’s Revision Of The Lord’s Prayer And The Coming Hour Of Testing

best24

Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the Lord God of your fathers giveth you.

Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.

Your eyes have seen what the Lord did because of Baalpeor: for all the men that followed Baalpeor, the Lord thy God hath destroyed them from among you.

But ye that did cleave unto the Lord your God are alive every one of you this day.

Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.

Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the Lord our God is in all things that we call upon him for?

And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?

Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons’ sons;

10 Specially the day that thou stoodest before the Lord thy God in Horeb, when the Lord said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.

11 And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness.

12 And the Lord spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice.

13 And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.

14 And the Lord commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it.

15 Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the Lord spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire:

16 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,

17 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air,

18 The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:

19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the Lord thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.

20 But the Lord hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance, as ye are this day.

21 Furthermore the Lord was angry with me for your sakes, and sware that I should not go over Jordan, and that I should not go in unto that good land, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance:

22 But I must die in this land, I must not go over Jordan: but ye shall go over, and possess that good land.

23 Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the Lord your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the Lord thy God hath forbidden thee.

24 For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.

25 When thou shalt beget children, and children’s children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves, and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do evil in the sight of the Lord thy God, to provoke him to anger:

26 I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed.

27 And the Lord shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the Lord shall lead you.

28 And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.

29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.

30 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;

31 (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.

32 For ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath been any such thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard like it?

33 Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live?

34 Or hath God assayed to go and take him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the Lord your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?

35 Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the Lord he is God; there is none else beside him.

36 Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire; and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire.

37 And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt;

38 To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an inheritance, as it is this day.

39 Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the Lordhe is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.

40 Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the Lord thy God giveth thee, for ever.

41 Then Moses severed three cities on this side Jordan toward the sunrising;

42 That the slayer might flee thither, which should kill his neighbour unawares, and hated him not in times past; and that fleeing unto one of these cities he might live:

43 Namely, Bezer in the wilderness, in the plain country, of the Reubenites; and Ramoth in Gilead, of the Gadites; and Golan in Bashan, of the Manassites.

44 And this is the law which Moses set before the children of Israel:

45 These are the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which Moses spake unto the children of Israel, after they came forth out of Egypt.

46 On this side Jordan, in the valley over against Bethpeor, in the land of Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon, whom Moses and the children of Israel smote, after they were come forth out of Egypt:

47 And they possessed his land, and the land of Og king of Bashan, two kings of the Amorites, which were on this side Jordan toward the sunrising;

48 From Aroer, which is by the bank of the river Arnon, even unto mount Sion, which is Hermon,

49 And all the plain on this side Jordan eastward, even unto the sea of the plain, under the springs of Pisgah.  (Deuteronomy 4 :1 49King James Version (KJV) Public Domain

 

And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.

Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.

Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.

11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. (Revelation 22:1-21King James Version (KJV) Public Domain

The Pope in Rome seems to think that he can change the Word of Yahweh-God. Yahweh’s-God word says that it can not be changed without dire consequences. The traditions of Man are being use to trump the Bible. We are seeing the Rise of the Anti-Christ.

temptation2

If you regularly check the headlines, then you may have read about the Vatican’s efforts to revise a particular verse in what is commonly called “The Lord’s Prayer.” Led by Pope Francis, Rome wants to change the wording of a long-standing translation that has brought a mixture of comfort and confusion to many.

The verse in question can be found in Matthew 6:13 and Luke 11:4, and in the eyes of the Pope and the leaders of the Roman Catholic institution, they believe that “lead us not into temptation” should be reworded to something like “abandon us not when in temptation.” While the Vatican has taken significant time to study ancient versions and do the proper leg work, the faithful student of God’s word should wisely question the purpose and validity of this enterprise.

And for those of us who have studied history, how could we forget the unjust power plays from the Popes of Christmas past? When the majority of Christendom doesn’t know their right from their left when it comes to the Bible, should we just leave this one up to the self-appointed experts of Rome to solve this translational and interpretative puzzle?

By no means should we follow Rome’s lead, or even shrug our shoulders like the rest of the undiscerning world. Instead, let’s apply our minds (the mind of Christ; cf. 1 Cor. 2:14-15) and use the tools available to the true body of Christ in order to separate the wheat from the chaff in this translation controversy.

For starters: What does the text actually say in the earliest surviving Greek manuscripts? Next thought: We should understand that even a literal, word-for-word translation requires some interpretation on the part of the translator. There is a wide semantic range for many words and phrases written in the ancient biblical languages and the variety of English versions attests to this fact. Consequently, the answer is not as simple as what does the Greek say. We must also consider the context of the chapter and book in order to gain a biblically-informed understanding of the inspired author’s intent.

My aim, however, is not to get into the theory of translation or interpretation right now, so I strongly invite you to read this well-written and thorough blog post authored by Dr. Daniel Wallace, a senior Greek professor at Dallas Theological Seminary, entitled “Pope Francis, The Lord’s Prayer, and Bible Translation.” He addressed this controversy a year ago when the Vatican first announced their plans to alter the Lord’s Prayer.

In this post I want to challenge a particular conclusion reached in one of many news outlets reporting on this issue. Michael Dorstewitz, writing for Newsmax, provides an objective piece for the most part, offering several quotes from both Catholic and Protestant leaders. However, the objectivity abruptly ends with this crude summarization:

…in the meantime, the message for all the detractors should be: No, Pope Francis is not rewriting the word of God” (see, “Pope Francis Calls for Change to ‘Lord’s Prayer’ and Critics Go Mad“).

Mr. Dorstewitz’s reply is a great example of an all-too-common attitude in our time: What’s the big deal, so what? Let the Pope change a word or two in order to smooth out a difficult translation and bring unity among Christians. What’s all the fuss about, and why is this news anyway? Nothing to see here, move along.

Well, I beg to differ, because this isn’t the first controversial thing the current Pope has said or done—the leader of the Roman Catholic Church has been rocking the boat and helping to pave the way for a one-world religion ever since he was appointed back in 2013 (for specifics, see Gary’s post, “The Wolf“).

So, on the contrary, Mr. Dorstewitz, Pope Francis is trying to rewrite (re-word, re-interpret) the word of God. Though well-intentioned or not, the Roman Catholic Church is not only twisting the Scripture but also fulfilling end-times prophecy. And there is a tragic irony in the specific verse the Vatican is seeking to emend that relates to Catholics and the coming Tribulation.

…if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit” (Matthew 15:14, ESV).

What Say You, Matthew?

Matthew and Luke are the only biblical authors to record the content of Jesus’ model prayer to the disciples known throughout the world as “The Lord’s Prayer.” Luke appears to have a more condensed version, and so, for the sake of clarity and convenience, we will stick with Matthew’s gospel for our purposes here.

When you survey the English versions for Matthew 6:13, you will discover that virtually everyone follows the lead of the KJV and translates the Greek word peraismos as “temptation.” However, when you look up the word in most Bible lexicons or dictionaries, you’ll find that there is a broad range of meaning available.

For example, I have found three primary definitions in the semantic range for peraismosStrong’s 3986:

(1) Trial
(2) Testing
(3) Temptation

As you can see, these words in isolation evoke different imagery even though they are synonymous. Context, as always, is important in order to narrow down which definition in the semantic range is appropriate for any given verse. Therefore, it is possible that some of the confusion surrounding Matthew 6:13 could be resolved if more Christians understood that the ideas of “testing” and “trial” are legitimate English translations for peraismos.

Nevertheless, some will still confuse this verse in the Lord’s Prayer with James 1:13. On this alleged contradiction please refer to Dr. Wallace’s article linked above. When peraismos is used with God or Satan as the subject, Dr. Wallace makes an important theological point of distinction, “God tests; Satan tempts.”

But the Pope along with many others will object, “God would never lead or bring anyone into temptation, that’s the Devil’s job.” Oh, really? So God would never lead, bring, or send someone to be peraismoed [tested, tried, tempted, etc.]? Well, as it turns out, we don’t have to go very far to answer that rebuttal. Just turn back a couple of pages to chapter 4:

Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted [Grk. peraismos] by the Devil…” (Matthew 4:1, HCSB).

And, there you have it: Led up by the Spirit…of God. It was God who led Jesus into the desert to be tempted. Now, if you can accept that God led Jesus into temptation, or to be tempted, then how does this affect our interpretation of the controversial verse in the Lord’s Prayer?

To further clarify this crucial literary connection within Matthew’s gospel, here is Dr. Wallace’s brief comment on Matthew 6:13 found in one of his Greek textbooks:

Although the KJV renders [Matt. 6:13] ‘deliver us from evil,’ the presence of the article indicates not evil in general, but the evil one himself. In the context of Matthew’s Gospel, such deliverance from the devil seems to be linked to Jesus’ temptation in 4:1-10: Because the Spirit led him into temptation by the evil one, believers now participate in his victory” (in Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics, pg. 233).

And it’s little wonder why many Christians, or so-called Christians, misunderstand this verse in the Lord’s Prayer. The reason is they are confused about the very gospel itself. To conclude, here are some of Dr. Wallace’s most powerful statements in his response to the Pope Francis debacle:

…the temptation that the Lord faced was the ultimate temptation—the offer of the entire world on a platter. Jesus can ask the disciples to pray that the Father would not lead them into temptation and that God would deliver them from the evil one precisely because Jesus himself faced the ultimate temptation by the evil one…[i]t is precisely because of Jesus’ substitutionary death and life that this prayer can be recited today by Christians with the full assurance that God will answer us. Pope Francis’s translation, however, subverts all this…[t]he original text speaks clearly of God leading, not permitting. To tamper with the wording misses the connection with the Lord’s temptation.”

Now then. I’ve shown you how Pope Francis and his cohorts at the Vatican are twisting the Scripture and thereby polluting the waters of the true gospel once again. They are the blind leading the blind. But how is the pontiff also fulfilling end-times prophecy by this latest move?

The Final Exam

The terrible irony in all of this mistranslation mess is the fact that the leader of the largest group of Christians worldwide has no clue that the LORD will not only lead him and the rest of the non-born-again Catholics into temptation, Jesus says most explicitly that He will throw them into the ultimate time of testing—the Tribulation:

Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. I will kill her children with death…” (Revelation 2:22-23, NKJV).

Do you see the irony in all of this?!

The Pope wants to alter Matthew 6:13 and Luke 11:4 and absolve God from leading anyone into testing or temptation. However, truth be told, the Lord Jesus doesn’t simply lead the Roman church into the Tribulation like a shepherd gently guiding his sheep to green pasture, He throws them into the Trib like a diseased sack of potatoes going into a burning trash heap.

Yikes.

But please note: For all who are willing to examine the Scriptures for themselves and follow the lead of the Holy Spirit, even if you identify as a former or current Roman Catholic, there is still hope for exemption from the Final Exam. There is still time…but it is quickly running out.

Look, the first and last uses of the Greek noun peraismos in the New Testament are book-ended by Matthew 6:13 and a shockingly relevant verse in the book of Revelation:

Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing [Grk. peraismos], that hour which is about to come upon the whole world to test those who dwell on the earth” (Revelation 3:10, NASB).

Therefore, you must hear what the Spirit is saying (Rev. 2:293:13) and believe the one and only true gospel of salvation. It’s under heavy attack right now and has been for many centuries. But now that we are nearing the day of the Final Exam, you must examine your beliefs and find out whether or not you are trusting in Christ alone and His finished work alone (Heb. 10:10-13Rev. 2:26, emphasis “My works”).

If you are trusting in the once-and-for-all atoning sacrifice of Jesus, then you are exempt from the Final Exam according to the correct translation and interpretation of Matthew 6:13 and Revelation 3:10. Rest assured, the LORD will not lead the true body of Christ into the testing period of the Tribulation. We will all be led in another direction—up, up, and away!

After this I looked, and there in heaven was an open door. The first voice [Jesus] that I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, ‘Come up here…” (Revelation 4:1, HCSB). (Click to Source)
