He reiterated his first point earlier this month when he said, “I appeal not to create walls but to build bridges.” Francis has made this appeal frequently, both figuratively (when imploring Western nations not to close their doors against more incoming Muslim migrants), and literally—including by characterizing Donald Trump’s proposal to build a U.S.-Mexico wall as “not Christian.”
Francis reiterated his second point a few days ago when he said, “Muslim terrorism does not exist.” His logic is that, because there are Christians who engage in criminal and violent activities—and yet no one blames Christianity for their behavior—so too should Islam not be blamed when Muslims engage in criminal and violent activities. more …
Opinion: If it seems like I am doing a lot of posts critical of Pope Francis lately, it’s because I am. As the battle between the demonic forces of globalism v. nationalism continue to heat up, the spiritual leader over the largest Christian denomination in the world is making his stand on the dark side.
If it weren’t for the prophecies of Daniel 7:20, 23-24 and Revelation 13:1-2, 11;12, 16-17, globalism might sound like a solution to fix the world’s problems.
While extreme nationalism (Nazism) can breed tyrants, globalism has, throughout history, always proven to be wicked. From King Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylon, to Medo-Persia, to Alexander’s Greece, to Rome’s emperors, global empires are ruled by godless men seeking total control over their hapless citizens.
The end result is a wealthy, elite, and powerful dictator for whom national borders are an impediment to the agenda.
A global superstate will also need a secular humanistic religion for moral authority in its early stages. A famous cleric with global views will support the dictator:
“Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.” Rev. 13:11
He is called the false prophet because he will claim to be from God but will be from Satan. With the Church of Jesus Christ safe in the New Jerusalem (2 Thess. 4:16-18) deception will be the order of the day:
“He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.”
The False Prophet will appear to be a man of peace and unity. His message will be a different gospel and he will assist the beast to finish off what so many Antichrists have started: annihilate God’s chosen.
Is Francis the one or is he setting the stage … ?
