LEAD STORY Pope Francis will visit Ur of the Chaldees and Babylon in order to unite religions into a one world religion Read Jimmy’s report on today’s top story, and how this event relates to Bible prophecy.
JD: Pope Francis is on the road again. He’s going into a portion of modern day Iraq to a place called Ur of the Chaldees. The birth place of Abraham the patriarch. It’s quite an interesting archeological site.
MG: Yes it is and in fact its often considered an ancient site of child sacrifices. The focus of his trip is to bring harmony between religious groups and some of them are very well known. We have the Muslims and the Catholics that are seeking unity but there’s also some smaller religious groups. I think what the Pope is attempting to do is find religious unity among all religions. The Pope has chosen this site to visit. I’m wondering now if his next visit might be an inter religious prayer meeting in the land of Shinar where the sons of men built a Tower of Babel into the heavens. That seems like an appropriate site to have religious unity, don’t you think?
JD: Oh absolutely, that would be the city of Babylon. It’s not too far from Ur the Chaldees all in the nation of Iraq. You know it seems to me the Pope’s taking this show on the road however Mike I’ve got to say it still smells much like Revelation 17.
MG: Well we know from Revelation 13 & 17 that there will be two men that will unite the world. There will be a false Messiah, a false prophet and he will unite the world in a global religion that will worship the other figure which is referred to as the antichrist or the man of lawlessness. So these two men together will usher in a time of peace and prosperity. And it’s really interesting Jimmy if you study Catholic eschatology they really believe there will be a Catholic Pope and a Catholic patriarch that will come together to fulfill prophecy.
JD: Mike Gendron with the details behind the Middle East visit by Pope Francis in a trip to bring together a one world religion.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
