The New American: “During a meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican last week, former Israeli President Shimon Peres urged the Catholic pontiff to help build a United Nations-like organization for different faiths dubbed the “Organization of United Religions.” Peres also referred to his proposed entity for “interfaith dialogue” as a “UN of religions.” While the pope was reportedly open to the idea… no commitment was made to necessarily pursue it. Numerous prophecy watchers and analysts, meanwhile, highlighted news of the proposal as an important development with potentially deep prophetic implications.
The reference to “religious” wars appears to have been primarily aimed at Islamic extremists, many of whom are openly dedicated to the destruction of Zionism and Israel as a nation-state. “The UN has run its course,” Peres told the Catholic magazine Famiglia Cristiana in an interview before the meeting with Pope Francis in Rome. “What we need is an Organization of United Religions, a UN of religions, as the best way to combat terrorists who kill in the name of faith, because the majority of people are not like them, they practice their religion without killing anyone, without this thought ever crossing their minds.
The religious version of the UN, presumably made up of mortal men from various faith backgrounds, would even purport to speak for God Almighty. “What we need is an unquestionable moral authority who says out loud, ‘No, God does not want this and does not allow it,’” the ex-Israeli president said. Unsurprisingly, the notion of an “unquestionable moral authority” to battle allegedly “religious” violence raised eyebrows and made headlines worldwide.
Opinion: Shimon Peres is a committed globalist while Francis, the first Jesuit pope, is a proponent of ecumenism, or uniting all religions under the authority of the Pope.
The pope made two comments this past year that pave the way for a more inclusive ecumenical church:
- “Who am I to Judge” referring to our making judgments about sinning openly
- “Follow your conscience” referring to living a moral life
When the final dictator steps onto the world stage, he will be a part of an unholy trinity: Antichrist, False Prophet and Satan. The false prophet will set up the global church. Let’s take a look:
“Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived” Revelation 13:11-14.
Globalism and ecumenism, as proposed by Shimon Peres and Pope Francis, could be just the ticket to a government -accepted global church.
