Reuters News: “Pope Francis and Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill embraced and kissed on Friday in a historic meeting, uniting to issue a global appeal for the protection of Christians under assault in the Middle East.
Nearly 1,000 years after the Eastern and Western branches of Christianity split apart, the meeting at an airport terminal in Cuba was the first ever between a Roman Catholic pope and a Russian Orthodox patriarch.
“In many countries of the Middle East and North Africa whole families, villages and cities of our brothers and sisters in Christ are being completely exterminated.”
Opinion: The Roman Pontiff is the first Jesuit to hold that office. The Society of Jesuits primary purpose is to bring all religions under the authority of the pope.
The movement is called ecumenism.
In Revelation 13, Antichrist is in full power over the revived Roman Empire when in verse 11, a religious figure is introduced: “Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon” who has all the power of the beast.
The second beast, if not for the two horns, would look like a lamb, suggesting he will try to act like the Lamb of God (a wolf in sheep’s clothing).
His fruits will betray his soothing words and since the true Church of Jesus Christ has already been raptured, he will try to bring all religions into unity and order everyone to worship the beast.
How interesting, that at this time, we have the first Jesuit pope.
