After writing Part 1 of this series, my husband thought I should explain why I am writing this series. I am sick at heart because so many of our faith leaders over the years have turned against God and laid down for Satan. And the sheeple are following them. I know of no other way to put it into words.
Every day in the news there is something more to further paint the picture of a New World Order along with the New World Religion. For those of us who have been following and researching this for some time it is very depressing.
On the last day of the year 2014, we are given the news the Lutheran World Federation and the Vatican announce “2017 – Together on the Way”. What this means is they will be using “common liturgical material beginning in 2017.
To say that I have been watching Pope Francis closely since taking his place is Rome is an understatement. I admit, the Pope being a Jesuit threw up warning signals for me and his election raised many questions in my mind, but I had decided to take a watch and see position before making any statements. However, my decision has changed.
I am not here to anger my Catholic friends or any Catholics, but I do however want you to think with an open mind.
I can’t help but remember the day my Catholic sister-in-law went to church with us – a Baptist church. She admitted to me after church that she had felt like she had been missing something in her own church and now she knew what it was. It was the gut of the scriptures that was missing rather than having all the pomp and circumstance along with the rituals.
Today’s announcement by the Lutheran Federation was not the first event to catch my eye, but it is certainly important. Having followed the movements toward a New World Order and most certainly the One World Religion (OWR) that is to follow, the one outstanding question would be who will lead the OWR?
The Catholic Church of old was not a very nice entity – they controlled matters of religion and also governed areas of politics and economics. At times, they were the judge and jury of all. Ordering the murder of those who opposed the church at one time was a common place occurrence. Corruption has long shrouded the church beginning with early times. Catholic priests and clergy grew rich by allowing people to pay money in order to be forgiven for their sins. The Catholic Church’s close involvement with the political affairs of Europe and the immense power all throughout Europe kept the church’s closely connected to powerful rulers and kingdoms.
Martin Luther saw change for the church, but the church did not agree. Today, I would guess Luther is rolling over in his grave. Luther’s biggest reform was to separate political power from the power of the church. Now today we see the churches – all churches – deeply involved in politics and power grabbing.
Unfortunately, the Catholic Church and now others are shrouded in corruption and evil and previous Pope’s have had a tendency to ignore the issues, especially when it came to the acts of pedophilia.
Pope Francis showed early on the previous behaviors of some of the bishops and cardinals were not sitting very well with him. His Christmas message to them this year was very clear. Calling off a list of what the Pope called “spiritual diseases” to which he believes the Vatican officials are susceptible to such as, careerism, arrogance, and gossip referring to them all as “pathology of power”.
The pope blasted the psychology focused exclusively on “what one can obtain” rather than “what one can give.”
There is also the added deep separation of the bishops in the wake of the October Synod of Bishops where the division over what the role of gays and lesbians in the Church should be and Communion for divorced Catholics.
If you are a person who doesn’t believe in the Bible much less God, I do feel sorry for you. It is much better to live your life as if you believe there is a God and find out after you die there is not, than to live your life as there isn’t a God and find out there is. The gates of hell are hot and fired up over the actions of His people especially those who are the false prophets.
The One World Religion is being assembled as we watch, and all the key players will soon be in place. References to the books of Revelation 17 and 18 refer to the ‘harlot’ and ‘Babylon’ as the mother of harlots’ leading scripture researchers to believe John was talking about the Catholic Church. Obviously Pope Francis agrees.
Earlier in 2014, this supposedly “open minded” Pope stated in a sermon to dispel any and all lingering doubt about how the Vatican views worldwide Christianity. Pope Francis once again declared his unshakable belief that the Roman Catholic Holy Mother Church – the very same one mentioned in Revelation 17 & 18 as the ‘Whore of Babylon’ – is the one and the only church.
Pope Francis stated: “No one becomes Christian on his or her own! Is that clear? No one becomes Christian by him or herself. Christians are not made in a laboratory. A Christian is part of a people who comes from afar. The Christian belongs to a people called the Church and this Church is what makes him or her Christian, on the day of Baptism, and then in the course of catechesis, and so on. But no one, no one becomes Christian on his or her own. If we believe, if we know how to pray, if we acknowledge the Lord and can listen to his Word, if we feel him close to us and recognize him in our brothers and sisters, it is because others, before us, lived the faith and then transmitted it to us. We have received the faith from our fathers, from our ancestors, and they instructed us in it.”
It is true than one does not become a Christian on their own? To say the only road to Christianity is through the Catholic Church is blasphemy as Christ stated it was through him. Jesus saith unto him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but through me’. John 14:6 KJV
Pope Francis words declare that he believes as all Christians should believe as Catholics believe. He stated: “the rest of Christianity who are not Catholics cannot possibly know God without the Catholic Church and the Virgin Mary”. Are his words any less dangerous than the words which come from the mouths of Muslims?
Many do believe the whore of Babylon has killed our good prophets and lured them into the lair of Lucifer. If not the whore of Babylon, then who?
Rev. Martin Junge, General Secretary of The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) says relations between the Lutheran and Catholic churches have reached an epoch-making turning-point.
Speaking during a panel discussion, held 18 December, 2014, in the Lutheran church in Rome, Junge emphasized that the relationship between Lutherans and Catholics was being transformed “from conflict to communion.” Precisely in a world “in which religion and faith are regularly portrayed and perceived as trouble makers,” he said it was a phenomenal testimony that the Lutheran and Roman Catholic churches continued to move “towards a profound communion that frees us to serve God and the world.”
Keep in mind the original world conference was initiated by the Catholic Church – called by Pope John. This was an invitation “to the Christian brothers, separated from its perfect unity, in a way to make attractive to them the sincere re-composition in truth and charity, of the mystic body of the sole Catholic Church.” This condition for unity was for the separated Protestant brother’s return to the sole Mother Catholic Church.
At the 2014 event, Geronimo Desumala III, advocacy officer said, “We need each other, if we want to see global changes. We need networking on prioritized global peace issues and effective advocacy work to promote peace among the peoples”.
Yes we need each other, but not under our individual beliefs accepted by the others, not under the wing of one church or a New World Religion. People should not criticize radical Muslims for their beliefs except the part about their belief in Mohammad means the rest of us should be dead. The world should be allowed to have their own beliefs, but they don’t have the right to impose them on others.
After he was elected, the cover of Time Magazine declared Pope Francis to be the “New World Pope“ and since his election Pope Francis has made it abundantly clear that he is going to make ecumenical outreach a top priority.
Pope Francis has issued the order to bring all the world’s religions into the Vatican tent, and this front-burner priority is being accomplished at a record pace. Emergent church leaders like Rick Warren, who says that Francis is “our Pope”, and prosperity “preacher” Joel Osteen have been on-board since last year after private meetings with the Pope. But this latest coupe is also a swipe against the very heart of the Protestant’s as well.
Has anyone, anywhere of any denomination asked the members of their churches how they feel about all of this or have they just gone along believing their leaders are good men and women and not FALSE PROPHETS leading their sheep to the slaughter.
This one world religion that they are seeking to establish is diametrically opposed to the Christianity that we find in the Bible. By throwing out Biblical truth for the sake of “friendship between men and women of different religious traditions“, is Pope Francis fundamentally betraying the faith that he claims to represent?
Just what does GLOBAL mean and why all of a sudden is everything from your thoughts to the clothes you wear to our children’s education to what church we belong to, being framed around that one word?
Or is Global in relationship to a church – the OWR – mean in the end all religions are to come together to respect each other’s religions or is there to be just one religion. You see no one is really talking here!
GLOBAL: all-encompassing, relating to the whole world; worldwide; relating to or embracing the whole of something, or of a group of things.
March 2014, Anglican priest Tony Palmer, a member of the Roman Catholic Ecumenical Delegation for Christian Unity and Reconciliation, gave a rousing call to Kenneth Copeland’s church to “return to Mother Rome”. He was met with a hero’s welcome by a very enthusiastic congregation. And just in case you thought that it was a “one off” meeting, you would be sadly mistaken.
Before playing the video message from Pope Francis to Copeland’s church, Palmer told the crowd, “When my wife saw that she could be Catholic, and Charismatic, and Evangelical, and Pentecostal, and it was absolutely accepted in the Catholic Church, she said that she would like to reconnect her roots with the Catholic culture. So she did.” “The Catholic and Charismatic Renewal is the hope of the ‘Church’,” exclaimed Turner.
I am not sure if that is exactly what the Pope means by a “Mother” church.
If I’m not mistaken God never told us we HAVE to belong to a church (religion), or building – just believe in him as God considers the church to be the PEOPLE and Jesus said: “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them”. Matthew 18:23 KJV
There should be no objections to all of us being of one religion as long as we get along and agree that religion follows God’s word. To have a OWR under the Catholic Church as a part of a New World Order – I think not.
Would it surprise you to know Americans are moving at a very fast pace to Social Liberalism? Liberal morality is at the top of the charts. The top 2 organizations in the country getting the most attention are Planned Parenthood and SEIU. Have I reminded you lately the leaders of these 2 groups are none other than husband and wife team, Cecile (Richards) and Kirk Adams?
So where is the church failing? Money, Power and Control? Dipping their toes into politics? How about this from the Communist Manifesto:
- Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
- Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
In one of the Pope’s addresses he made it a point to say that he believes that Muslims worship and pray to the “one God” that he also worships. No wonder he and Rick Warren hit it off so well. This “all roads lead to the same God” philosophy is a hallmark of the one world religion that the global elite have been slowly building toward for decades. The global elite know that even with a one world economy and a one world government, humanity will never be truly united until there is a single global religion.
The Roman Catholic Church brags constantly that they have “never changed”, and that is very true.
This spring has been a very busy time for the Pope. His call for unity goes beyond the Christian community. During his recent visit to the Middle East, Francis invited Israel’s Chief of State Shimon Peres and Palestinian President Abu Mazen to join him in prayer for peace.
I wonder if Israelis and Palestinians find themselves in a situation similar to conservative and liberal Catholics and those of other religions in the U.S. as they attempted to decipher the words and actions of Pope Francis, wondering if he has a side and which one he’s on, hoping it is theirs.
