Arutz Sheva: “The inauguration ceremony will be attended by PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Pope Francis, according to a statement from a spokesperson for the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).
According to the PLO statement, Abbas’s visit to the Vatican began on Wednesday and will conclude on either Sunday or Monday. In addition to meeting with the Pope for the embassy’s inauguration, Abbas will also meet with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, and travel to Paris to meet with French President Francois Hollande.”
Opinion: An embassy for an illegitimate Palestinian state at the Vatican sends a clear message to the 70 nations attending the Paris Peace conference that Francis is against President-elect Trump’s promise to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, and a blatant endorsement for a Palestinian state.
Vatican support for the descendants of Edom visibly began on May 16, 2015 when Pope Francis hosted Mahmoud Abbas at the Vatican. At that meeting, Pope Francis recognized Palestine as a state and referred to Abbas as an angel of peace.
On that day I wrote this: “Pope Francis cannot possibly be that biblically ignorant of the Abrahamic covenant, so the only answer is defiance against God, Genesis 12:3; Joel 3:1-2; Obadiah 1:15.”
I am fully aware of the anti-Semitism that has run rampant in Catholicism since Augustine first wrote the ‘City of God’ leading to Replacement Theology which claims that the Church replaced Israel in God’s plan.”
One would think that Replacement Theology and its twin Covenant Theology, which claims that Israel is the church, would have been debunked and removed from Catholic and Protestant teaching with the fulfillment of Isaiah 66:7-8, Israel’s miraculous rebirth in one day on May 14, 1048.
Nowhere in the New Testament did God ever alter or rescind that covenant (Genesis 17:7-8) made with Abraham and his descendants after him. In fact Paul reaffirmed the covenant:
“For I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my countrymen according to the flesh, who are Israelites, to whom pertain the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service of God, and the promises; of whom are the fathers and from whom, according to the flesh, Christ came, who is over all, the eternally blessed God. Amen” Romans 9:3-5.
We ended the May 16 post (here) with this:“Pope Francis shook hands with Satan today … and gave him a medallion.”
And today he went one step further.
