Palestinian flag raised at UN for the first time

After ending his speech at the UN General Assembly, Abu Mazen walked to the Palestinian flag-raising ceremony and declared September 30th ‘Palestinian Flag Day’. Earlier Abu Mazen stated: “We will not abide by agreements with Israel.” Watch:



Minutes after Abu Mazen’s resolute speech against Israel at the UN the Palestinian flag was raised outside the UN headquarters. Palestine has a status of a non-member observer state at the UN, and this symbolic moment was another step of political support in the Palestinian Authority and in Abu Mazen, who was warmly received and applauded during his speech.
 
Palestinian representatives thanked UN officials for their support. Abu Mazen announced at the flag raising ceremony that starting today September 30th will be ‘Palestinian Flag Day’. Earlier Abu Mazen declared his political intentions and stated: “Today we are raising our flag at the UN, and the day is not far, god willing, that our flag will be raised in East Jerusalem, the capital of the Palestinian state.”

Putin to those who supported “Arab Spring” in Middle East:

“Do you realize what you have done?” (thanks to Jihad Watch)

“Instead of the triumph of democracy and progress, we got violence, poverty and social disaster — and nobody cares a bit about human rights, including the right to life. I cannot help asking those who have forced that situation: Do you realize what you have done?”
No, they don’t realize what they have done, and they’re poised to do more of it. And those of us who warned at the time that the “Arab Spring” would not lead to “the triumph of democracy and progress,” but to “violence, poverty and social disaster,” were dismissed and derided as racist, bigoted “Islamophobes.” And no matter how often the establishment analysts get things wrong, and disastrously, fatally so, they never get called to account, and keep applying the same failed solutions over and over again.
Putin
“Putin: ‘Do you realize what you have done?,’” by Everett Rosenfeld, CNBC, September 28, 2015:
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday admonished those who supported democratic revolutions in the Middle East, telling the United Nations they led to the rise of a globally ambitious Islamic State.
“Instead of the triumph of democracy and progress, we got violence, poverty and social disaster — and nobody cares a bit about human rights, including the right to life,” Putin said through a translator. “I cannot help asking those who have forced that situation: Do you realize what you have done?”
The Russian president added that the power vacuum following these revolutions led to the rise of terrorist groups in the region — including the Islamic State group.
He told the General Assembly it would be an “enormous mistake” not to cooperate with the Syrian government to combat the extremist group.
“No one but President (Bashar) Assad’s armed forces and Kurdish militia are truly fighting the Islamic State and other terrorist organizations in Syria,” he said.
In an earlier speech at the U.N. , President Barack Obama said it would be a mistake to think that Syria could be stable under Assad.
Acknowledging some of the criticism lobbed at Russia’s proposal, Putin said his country is only proposing to help save the world from terrorism.
“I must note that such an honest and frank approach from Russia has been recently used as a pretext to accuse it of its growing ambitions — as if those who say it has no ambitions at all. However, it’s not about Russia’s ambitions, dear colleagues, but about the recognition of the fact that we can no longer tolerate the current state of affairs in the world,” he said.
He proposed a “generally broad international coalition against terrorism,” likening the suggestion to the anti-Hitler coalition that brought together disparate interests to battle fascism in Europe.
Putin warned that international policy toward the region has led to an Islamic State with plans that “go further” than simply dominating the Middle East. And citing recent data about failures in successfully recruiting “moderate” Syrian opposition, Putin said countries opposed to Assad are simply worsening the situation.
“We believe that any attempts to play games with terrorists, let alone to arm them, are not just short-sighted, but hazardous. This may result in the global terrorist threat increasing dramatically and engulfing new regions,” the Russian leader said….

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met with the head of Hamas's political bureau, Khaled Meshaal, in Doha, Qatar on Monday morning. 
The atmosphere at the meeting was warm and the two leaders embraced each other warmly as soon as they met.
Meshaal congratulated Lavrov on his arrival in the capital of Qatar.
"I am pleased to welcome you here in Doha," Meshaal stated. 
"I hope you feel right at home here," Lavrov responded. 
During the meeting, Meshaal told the Russian foreign minister that the Palestinians were forced to abandon their homes over the years following the establishment of Israel, in his words, and claimed they have not been given the option of returning home. 
Lavrov promised that "Russia will work together with other countries, to ensure that all Palestinians can return home and stay there forever."
He further said to Meshaal that Russia will, together with other countries, "solve the Palestinian problem as soon as possible."

Endgame: Putin Plans To Strike ISIS With Or Without The U.S.
 
John Kerry, speaking from London following talks with British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond, essentially admitted over the weekend that Russia’s move to bolster the Assad regime at Latakia effectively means that the timing of Assad’s exit is now completely indeterminate. Here’s how we summed up the situation:
Moscow, realizing that instead of undertaking an earnest effort to fight terror in Syria, the US had simply adopted a containment strategy for ISIS while holding the group up to the public as the boogeyman par excellence, publicly invited Washington to join Russia in a once-and-for-all push to wipe Islamic State from the face of the earth. Of course The Kremlin knew the US wanted no such thing until Assad was gone, but by extending the invitation, Putin had literally called Washington’s bluff, forcing The White House to either admit that this isn’t about ISIS at all, or else join Russia in fighting them. The genius of that move is that if Washington does indeed coordinate its efforts to fight ISIS with Moscow, the US will be fighting to stabilize the very regime it sought to oust. 
Revelations (which surprised no one but the Pentagon apparently) that Moscow is coordinating its efforts in Syria with Tehran only serve to reinforce the contention that Assad isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and the US will either be forced to aid in the effort to destroy the very same Sunni extremists that it in some cases worked very hard to support, or else admit that countering Russia and supporting Washington’s regional allies in their efforts to remove Assad takes precedence over eliminating ISIS. Because the latter option is untenable for obvious reasons, Washington has a very real problem on its hands - and Vladimir Putin just made it worse.
As Bloomberg reports, The Kremlin is prepared to launch unilateral strikes against ISIS targets if the US is unwilling to cooperate. Here’s more: 
President Vladimir Putin, determined to strengthen Russia’s only military outpost in the Middle East, is preparing to launch unilateral airstrikes against Islamic State from inside Syria if the U.S. rejects his proposal to join forces, two people familiar with the matter said.
 
Putin’s preferred course of action, though, is for America and its allies to agree to coordinate their campaign against the terrorist group with Russia, Iran and the Syrian army, which the Obama administration has so far resisted, according to a person close to the Kremlin and an adviser to the Defense Ministry in Moscow.
 
Russian diplomacy has shifted into overdrive as Putin seeks to avoid the collapse of the embattled regime of Bashar al-Assad, a longtime ally who’s fighting both a 4 1/2 year civil war and Sunni extremists under the banner of Islamic State. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu flew to Moscow for talks with Putin on Monday, followed by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday.
 
Putin’s proposal, which Russia has communicated to the U.S., calls for a “parallel track” of joint military action accompanied by a political transition away from Assad, a key U.S. demand, according to a third person. The initiative will be the centerpiece of Putin’s one-day trip to New York for the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 28, which may include talks with President Barack Obama.
 
“Russia is hoping common sense will prevail and Obama takes Putin’s outstretched hand,” said Elena Suponina, a senior Middle East analyst at the Institute of Strategic Studies, which advises the Kremlin. “But Putin will act anyway if this doesn’t happen.”
And that, as they say, it that. Checkmate.
SUPERSTAR POPE FRANCIS OF BABYLON THE GREAT ADDRESSES CONGRESS

AS POPE FRANCIS PREPARES TO SPEAK TO AMERICA AND THE WORLD:
 

Tuesday, 22 September 2015

  • Some high-profile commentators think they smell a Marxist clothed in white papal robes, who dreams of redistributing the world's wealth. Pope Francis insists that he has little interest in Marxism and that his political advocacy against materialism, capitalism, greed and idolatry are largely religious in nature. However, the flavor of some of his statements might suggest otherwise.
  • The Pope also knows that the UN is poised to strong-arm member nations to sign on to an impossible globalist agenda that will require a total shift of the world's wealth, and a restructuring of international politics and economics with a one-world government and a universal religion at the steering wheel.
  • Even to the Pope's admirers, that sounds a less like peace and love and more like a utopian totalitarian nightmare.

IS GENETIC ARMAGEDDON HERE
 

Petrus Romanus is a Communist?

Pope CommunistIs Petrus Romanus preparing to set up the new socialist system that will require everyone, who wishes to buy and sell, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead?
“And he causes all people, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the slave, that they give them a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and that no one was able to buy or to sell except the one who had the mark—the name of the beast or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:16–17)
It sure appears like Mr. Jorge Mario Bergoglio (aka Pope Francis) is a Marxist. The Pope said this about the European refugee problem:
“These poor people are fleeing war, hunger, but that is the tip of the iceberg. Because underneath that is the cause; and the cause is a bad and unjust socioeconomic system, in everything, in the world – speaking of the environmental problem –, in the socioeconomic society, in politics, the person always has to be in the centre. That is the dominant economic system nowadays, it has removed the person from the centre, placing the god money in its place, the idol of fashion. There are statistics, I don’t remember precisely, (I might have this wrong), but that 17% of the world’s population has 80% of the wealth.”  (Vatican Insider)
“The person has to be at the center?”   …oh really? John the Baptist said,
 “A man can receive not one thing unless it is granted to him from heaven!  …  The one who comes from above is over all. The one who is from the earth is from the earth and speaks from the earth; the one who comes from heaven is over all.” (John 3:31)
The pope argued the refugee problem is due to an unjust economic system and not supernatural evil (Ephesians 6:12)? Nominal Catholics with a Western education in economics know better. Robert Spencer – a vocal critic of Islam – takes Pope Francis’ socialist arguments and turns them on their ear with facts. Spencer demonstrates that the pope even contradicts his own previous statements about refugees… While Jesus was not a capitalist he was no Marxist: Jesus said,
“Therefore give to Caesar the things of Caesar, and to God the things of God!”(Matthew 22:21)
It is beyond question that in the context of the passage “the things of Caesar” meant more MONEY for the wealthiest man imaginable (and less for the poor) at that time Jesus spoke. Why does the alleged Vicar of Christ, contradict the words of the historical Jesus Christ?  In a different but relevant context, Jesus reminded the disciples that perfuming his body was more important than feeding the hungry:
“For this could have been sold for a large sum and given to the poor!” But Jesus, knowing this, said to them, “Why do you cause trouble for the woman? For she has done a good deed for me. For the poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me.” (Matthew 26:9–11)
Islam critic, Robert Spencer does a fine job of shredding the false prophet’s socialist apologetic: POPE KARL I The Pontiff blames the refugee crisis on…capitalism.  Tom Horn and I wrote about this in 2011 in Petrus Romanus:
It’s been assumed for centuries that a prerequisite for the coming of Petrus Romanus and his Antichrist master would be the sudden or contrived emergence of a new world order—an umbrella under which national boundaries dissolve and ethnic groups, ideologies, religions, and economics from around the world orchestrate a single and dominant sovereignty. At the head of the utopian administration, the Antichrist will surface. At first, he will appear to be a man of distinguished character, but will ultimately become “a king of fierce countenance” (Daniel 8:23) who makes the combined depravities of Antiochus Epiphanes, Hitler, Stalin, and Genghis Khan, all of whom were types of the Antichrist, look like child’s play. With imperious decree, he will facilitate a One-World Government, universal religion, and global socialism. (page 426)

For Pope’s WH visit, Obama invites pro-abortion nun, gay bishop, transgender

A transvestite, a pro-choice nun, a gay bishop, and the Pope all walk into the White House. Only this is no joke:
President Obama will apparently test just how far Pope Francis’ notorious tolerance will go by inviting a rogue’s gallery of people opposed to Catholic teaching to greet the pontiff at the White House during his visit next week.
In a stunning show of political indecorum, Obama has invited a series of individuals who publicly flout Catholic teaching, including a pro-abortion religious sister, a transgender woman and the first openly gay Episcopal bishop, along with at least two Catholic gay activists.
And you thought Obama was raising the ultimate middle finger to the religious right when he ordered that the “people’s house” be flooded in rainbow colors on June 26 following the Supreme Court’s notorious same-sex marriage ruling.
Among those invited to join the president when he greets the Pope will be Gene Robinson, who made history by becoming the first openly gay episcopal bishop in 2003. Mateo Williamson, a co-chair of the Transgender Caucus for Dignity USA, has also received an invitation.

Britain plans registry of religious leaders, will require government-specific training, security checks

People arrive at the East London Mosque to attend the first Friday prayers of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan on June 19, 2015 in London, England. Registration will be compulsory for all faith leaders who wish to work with the public sector, including universities, the document says.

Registration will be compulsory for all faith leaders who wish to work with the public sector, including universities, the document says.
Imams, priests, rabbis and other religious figures in Britain will have to enrol in a “national register of faith leaders” and be subject to government-specified training and security checks in the Home Office’s latest action on extremism.
The highly controversial proposal appears in a leaked draft of the Government’s new counter-extremism strategy, seen by The Sunday Telegraph, which goes substantially further than previous versions of the document.
The strategy, due to be published this fall, says that Whitehall will “require all faiths to maintain a national register of faith leaders” and the Government will “set out the minimum level of training and checks” faith leaders must have to join the new register.
Registration will be compulsory for all faith leaders who wish to work with the public sector, including universities, the document says. In practice, most faith leaders have some dealings with the public
sector and the requirement will cover the great majority.

Putin Sends Out Warning To World On ISIS's Intentions To Invade Jerusalem, Europe - New ISIS Video Claims 'We're Back In America!'

Screenshot_from_2015-09-15_152741.jpg

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

The breaking story this morning from RT shares the dire urgency of a warning from Russian President Vladimir Putin to the entire world; the Islamic State has plans to invade the holy cities of Mecca and Jerusalem and is now a threat to all of the countries of the European Union as well as to Russia itself. The videos at the bottom of the story break down for us the most latest news with the refugee crisis and share more on Putin's warning to the world.

With ISIS having recently released a new video warning that they are back in America as seen 1st video below, the recent refugee trojan horse invasion of Europe and this dire warning from Putin as recent signs, we should all take these words from Putin to heart as they appear to speak more truth that what we are learning from our own leaders after we recently learned that 50 US military Intel Chiefs have revolted against Obama and a Pentagon official has warned that Obama is lying to America 'about 'us', and ISIS.' 

Directly from Putin via RT:

"Extremists from many countries of the world, including, unfortunately, European counties, Russia and the  Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) undertake ideological and military training in the ranks of Islamic State [IS, formerly known as ISIS/ISIL], and certainly we are worried that they could possibly return."
"Simple common sense, responsibility for global and regional safety require uniting efforts of the international community [to fight] such a threat. It is necessary to set aside geopolitical ambitions, drop so-called double standards, the policy of direct or indirect use of separate terrorist groups for achieving own goals, including removing the governments and regimes." 
"We give technical-military support to Damascus and will continue doing it," he said. "And we call on other countries to join us in this."
"Now we have to unite the efforts of the Syrian government and the Kurdish self-defense forces and the so-called moderate opposition, and other countries in the [Middle East] region to fight the threat to Syria’s statehood and terrorism."
Russia is calling for uniting the efforts of all forces eager to fight terrorism, said the Russian leader.
"Russia, as you know, has proposed to form a wide coalition to fight extremists without any delay. It [the coalition] should unite everyone who is ready and is already contributing to tackling terrorism.”
"Unfortunately the situation in the country [Afghanistan] is degrading after the withdrawal of most foreign troops," Putin said, adding there is a real threat that terror groups from neighboring countries may infiltrate the area.
"People are fleeing Syria, first of all, because of military actions … from atrocities of terrorists – we know they are committing brutalities there, and destroying cultural heritage.

"If Russia had not been supporting Syria, the situation in the country would have been worse than in Libya and the refugee flow would have been even bigger,"
 Putin said.
"It was not us who destroyed government institutions there creating the power vacuum, which is immediately filled by terrorists," he concluded.

1280x720-av6.jpg
With 'refugees' on the border of Hungary and Serbia now going on a hunger strike, refusing to eat or drink the food and water being given to them until the border is reopened, we have to ask, does anybody else find it a bit strange that these children protesting are holding signs written in perfect English?

We're quite certain that these kids didn't write these signs themselves... but, they are at the Hungarian border with Serbia, why would they be holding up these signs in English and not their native languages or the languages spoken in Hungary and Serbia?

Is this just more ISIS-trojan horse invasion propaganda unfolding right before our very eyes? Of course, to make sure that we continue to let ISIS terrorists in, mixed in with the women and children.

Screenshot_from_2015-09-15_120732.jpg

With all of this now going on, we are asked to remember this recent warning from Red Flag News about ISIS calling upon Muslims in America to go to the homes of US soldiers and slaughter them. This is just as horrifying and absolutely despicable as Black Lives Matter calling on violence against law enforcement.

Whether we agree with US wars or not, we should all continue to support our public servants and our men and women in uniform. In this day and age we now live in, they need our complete support and backing as much as we need them. We are Americans, one country, whether we love everything about it or not.

Petrus Romanus And The Terrifying Tentacles Of The Coming One World Governance

pope-francis-urges-worlds-religions-to-unite
Having Pope Francis, involved in the climate change industry gives the one world government total control and a very powerful facade, particularly when His Holiness will address Congress in a very unprecedented move for the clergy to get involved in global politics and the U.S. and global economy instead of ministering to the souls of Catholics around the world.
 
Theologian Leonardo Boff is quick to point out the “Similarities between the Encyclical Laudato Si, ‘On Care for our Common Home,’ and the Earth Charter, ‘Earth, Our Home.’ And if you fail to go along…

Netanyahu : We’ll not allow Israel ‘to be submerged by a wave of illegal migrants, terrorist activists’

Syrian refugees need not look to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for help as he seems to be the only world leader with an actual perspective on what’s happening.
At a weekly cabinet meeting Sunday, Netanyahu said he wouldn’t allow Israel “to be submerged by a wave of illegal migrants and terrorist activists.”
The Israeli prime minister said he felt for the true migrants fleeing violence and death but his country simply cannot and won’t allow the migrants within its borders, Yahoo News reported.
“Israel is not indifferent to the human tragedy of Syrian and African refugees… but Israel is a small country — very small — without demographic or geographic depth. That is why we must control our borders,” he said.
The man Netanyahu defeated in this year’s election to retain his position as prime minister, Isaac Herzog, joined Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas in demanding Israel take in the Muslim refugees.
Perhaps they forgot that Israel has been the subject of attacks from violent Muslim extremists since its inception but Netanyahu has not, and he’s slamming the door.
He took it a step further and talked about a fence Israel will build along its border with Jordan to keep more illegal immigrants out.

POPE FRANCIS IS TO THE VATICAN, WHAT OBAMA IS TO THE U.S.

I remember in 2008, when Obama was declared the President of the United poo States. I could hardly breathe. I sat in silence for hours; not wanting to believe it was true.
I had warned so many people about him. Having done extensive research on the man, with the little that we did know of his past, I was determined to tell as many people as I could that this man was dangerous for our country.
We knew of his ultra liberal voting record as a U.S. Senator. He was deemed left of Ted Kennedy! We knew that he had close ties with Planned Parenthood. We also knew of his association with people like Bill Ayers and his Marxist pastor, Jeremiah Wright, who spewed his hateful Black Liberation Theology to his congregation every Sunday. Those of us who have discernment knew that Barack Hussein Obama was going to be a curse on our country.
I kept turning it over in my mind — how could this happen? What was wrong with the people? And since that fateful night in November of 2008, he has turned this country into something that is foreign to us. It’s not the America we knew as we grew up. He said that he would fundamentally transform the U.S. and that is exactly what he has done.
POPE FRANCIS
When Pope Benedict suddenly stepped down from the papacy, I had a feeling that something was amiss at the Vatican. Actually, things are always amiss at the Vatican, but this was different. It was like things were out of control; or perhaps someone else was in control. It took less than two days for the conclave to usher in their new pope.
We found out that Pope Francis was the first Jesuit to ever be a pope — the very first! As I researched this more, I realized that the Jesuits were always considered the military arm of the Vatican. Even Catholic priests were shocked when Francis was placed in his position. I began to do more research on the Jesuits. What I was seeing was more than a bit alarming. Assassinations, political plots, helping Hitler to power in Germany; the list goes on and it reads like a terrifying novel. I had no idea that the Jesuits were like this. They sounded more like the mafia than part of the Vatican.
CONSERVATIVE DISSENT IS BREWING INSIDE THE VATICAN
I read an article today from the Washington Post (not usually my choice for news) but I found the piece to be intriguing. Here is an excerpt:
VATICAN CITY — On a sunny morning earlier this year, a camera crew entered a well-appointed apartment just outside the 9th-century gates of Vatican City. Pristinely dressed in the black robes and scarlet sash of the princes of the Roman Catholic Church, Wisconsin-born Cardinal Raymond Burke sat in his elaborately upholstered armchair and appeared to issue a warning to Pope Francis.
A staunch conservative and Vatican bureaucrat, Burke had been demoted by the pope a few months earlier, but it did not take the fight out of him. Francis had been backing a more inclusive era, giving space to progressive voices on divorced Catholics as well as gays and lesbians. In front of the camera, Burke said he would “resist” liberal changes — and seemed to caution Francis about the limits of his authority. “One must be very attentive regarding the power of the pope,” Burke told the French news crew. [1]
Didn’t the college of Cardinals which made up the papal conclave do their research on this man before voting? If they had, they would have found that the former Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina, had a past that was certainly not typical of a leader in the Catholic church.
It seems feasible that the Jesuit community may have been instrumental in placing their man on the papal throne.
Cardinal Raymond Burke went on in the Post article:
Papal power, Burke warned, “is not absolute.” He added, “The pope does not have the power to change teaching [or] doctrine.”
Burke’s words belied a growing sense of alarm among strict conservatives, exposing what is fast emerging as a culture war over Francis’s papacy and the powerful hierarchy that governs the Roman Catholic Church. [1]
In a prior article about Pope Francis, I wrote:
“I have done much research on this pope. I found that when he was Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, he had close friends who were Wiccans and pagans. He even allowed some Unitarian Universalist acquaintances to hold services in his Cathedral in Buenos  Aires, Argentina.  I read that Wiccans, pagans and New Agers in general, were intrigued by the man, and many truly loved him.”
The name of that article was “Pope Francis – False Prophet.” [2]
Pope Francis prepares for his trip to Washington, D.C. to meet with Obama and then to address a joint session of Congress. This has never happened in the history of our country. Francis then goes to NY to be the keynote speaker for the Climate Change conference at the U.N. It seems that Pope Francis fashions himself a politician now. Well, that would make sense since we never hear anything from him about the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
This Pope’s liberal leanings are not just causing dissension within the Vatican. It seems that Catholic priests worldwide are either speaking against his unconventional teachings, or his allies are using this to push the envelope and see just how far they can go with issues such as same-sex marriage and abortion.
The Post article continues:
“Yet as he upends church convention, Francis also is grappling with a conservative backlash to the liberal momentum building inside the church. In more than a dozen interviews, including with seven senior church officials, insiders say the change has left the hierarchy more polarized over the direction of the church than at any point since the great papal reformers of the 1960s.
The conservative rebellion is taking on many guises — in public comments, yes, but also in the rising popularity of conservative Catholic Web sites promoting Francis dissenters; books and promotional materials backed by conservative clerics seeking to counter the liberal trend; and leaks to the news media, aimed at Vatican reformers.
In his recent comments, Burke was also merely stating fact. Despite the vast powers of the pope, church doctrine serves as a kind of constitution. And for liberal reformers, the bruising theological pushback by conservatives is complicating efforts to translate the pope’s transformative style into tangible changes.
“At least we aren’t poisoning each other’s chalices anymore,” said the Rev. Timothy Radcliffe, a liberal British priest and Francis ally appointed to an influential Vatican post in May. Radcliffe said he welcomed open debate, even critical dissent within the church. But he professed himself as being “afraid” of “some of what we’re seeing”
Rather than stake out clear stances, the pope is more subtly, often implicitly, backing liberal church leaders who are pressing for radical change, while dramatically opening the parameters of the debate over how far reforms can go. For instance, during the opening of a meeting of senior bishops last year, Francis told those gathered, “Let no one say, ‘This you cannot say.’ ” [1]
In my article, “Pope Francis – False Prophet,” I made the case that this man could very well be the one spoken of in the Word of God as the False Prophet.
Brethren, I feel strongly that everything happening with this Pope is Satanically influenced.
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed” (Revelation 13:11-12).
The Word says that he had two horns like a lamb. This brings to mind gentleness. Have you noticed that Pope Francis has a gentle demeanor? He looks like someone that you would invite into your home. But the Word also says he speaks as a dragon. This means that he speaks as a serpent – he lies and deceives and confuses.
I believe that these new events just confirm what many are thinking. Some are even asking if this man could be the Antichrist. We are seeing God’s prophetic Word playing out before our eyes.
Share this with unbelieving friends and families. Let them see for themselves that God’s Word is in the news every day! Then share the Gospel with them. Show them that they can know that they will be in heaven when they die. Time is so short.
MARANATHA!
