The inauguration of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence was a welcome event last Friday, setting America on a course contrary to the One World Order envisioned by globalists favoring the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda – Nimrod’s modern-day Tower of Babel.
Now veiled, Trump’s inner circle is a confluence of nationalistic and eschatological wills, but will lead to temporal Middle East peace via Pope Francis, more fully exposing the rising beast. “And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea having seven heads and ten horns” (Rev. 13:1).
Trump’s nationalistic “America First” governance vs the One World Order envisioned by the UN will become the new global grievance, not unlike Putin’s Russia. It’s only a matter of time before now-coexisting nationalistic and globalist governments become unsustainable.
Russian President Vladimir Putin also governs from a “Russia First” strength. But UN member nations want no part of nationalism, making Jesus’ warning that, “nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom” (Matt. 24:7) that much more of a tangible reality to wars.
With the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia seceded from the United Nations. So, while Russia is now free of the UN’s onerous fiscal and global 2030 Agenda, the US remains bound by UN resolutions irrespective of Trump’s “America First” interests, or will it?
Might this be why the 1st Session of the 115th Congress, on January 3, 2017, entered H.R. 193 in the House of Representatives, “A Bill To end membership of the United States in the United Nations”? If the U.S. leaves the U.N., the U.S., internationally, becomes like Russia – disliked!
Then there’s the nation State of Israel. President Trump made it clear that he intends to favor Israel at every turn, for which every Christian ought to say “Amen! Thank you Mr. President!” Why, because God said, “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you” (Gen. 12:3). God also commands His saints to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, see Psa. 122:6.
President Trump has a vested interest in showing partiality to Israel, for his son-in-law Jared Kushner is an Orthodox Jew and his wife, Ivanka Trump, converted to Judaism in 2009. That, Ivanka Trump, however, converted to Judaism, is immeasurably sad. Let me explain.
I don’t know if she was ever a born again Christian or not, but for her opportunity unto eternal life, I hope she was not. Here’s why: if she was once born again by faith in Christ, then turned away from Jesus, which is required to convert to Judaism, then the unthinkable has occurred.
“For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame” (Heb. 6:4–6).
Join me in praying for President Donald Trump and his entire family and in-laws. Pray that they receive the love of the truth of Christ Jesus by faith unto salvation before it is eternally too late.
While Trump’s team is pro-Israel, that posture will clash harshly with the interests of the world which demands Israel be divided (Joel 3:2) for a two-state Israeli / Palestinian solution of peace.
Enter now the influence of Pope Francis. Steve Bannon, the former CEO of Breitbart is now President Trump’s White House Chief Strategist. In addition to Bannon being a highly educated visionary, he is foremost a staunch Catholic with deep regard for Pope Francis and the Vatican.
In fact, Steve Bannon delivered a speech from Los Angeles to a Vatican conference via Skype in the summer of 2014. (BuzzFeed News 11/16/2016) Speaking about “crisis of our church…of our faith…of the West…of capitalism”, Bannon espoused “an aspect of the church militant…to fight for our beliefs”. However, “the church militant” defies every teaching of Christ for His saints, but fits Catholicism’s forced conversions by torture and murder which led to the Reformation.
Bannon calls Francis “Holy Father” though Jesus said, “Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven” (Matt. 23:9). And based on God’s Word at Rev. 17 and 18, the Catholic Church is, “the great harlot who sits on many waters…[and] was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls” (Rev. 17:1, 4).
Yet, Trump gives close ear to Bannon, a Catholic in covenant to Pope Francis’ authority. Though now heavily veiled, Bannon and Francis are spiritually against Israel. Here’s how: just as Francis made a Treaty with Palestine, he too will make a 7-year “covenant with many” (Dan. 9:27) that brings temporal peace. That peace, however, will be irreparably shattered at its mid-point, fully revealing “the abomination of desolation” (Matt. 24:15) and start of “great tribulation” (24:21).
The Vatican has full authority over Jerusalem and the whole land of Israel based on its, “Fundamental Agreement Between The Holy See And The State Of Israel”, dated December 30, 1993. And at the appointed time the Vatican will exercise its legal right to the land of Israel, and Bannon, in spiritual covenant with Pope Francis, will approve. Remember, Pope Francis makes eternal life contingent upon membership in his church, a spiritually apostate force!
Historically, the Vatican was never pro-Israel, and still isn’t. But end-time events are coming to an apex and the Vatican has the world thinking it regards Israel positively, but it does not. In fact, while the United Nations recognized the nation State of Israel as early as November of 1947, the Vatican did not formally do so until the December 30, 1993 Fundamental Agreement.
But to properly discern end-time events, we also consider the will of the UN for a One World Order; the will of Palestine to seize all Israel for itself; and the ultimate will of Russia to destroy Israel. Do not be deceived, Russia does not now, nor will it ever look favorably upon Israel, for Russia will, “descend, coming like a storm, covering the land [of Israel] like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you” (Ezek. 38:9), at the battle of Gog and Magog.
But first, the final Vicar, the “one who acts in place of” Christ, the Antichrist must rise. “And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer” (Rev. 6:2). Pope Francis has been conquering.
For lack of spiritual discernment, the love of political correctness, and the praise of man, many Protestant leaders let go their protest of Roman Catholicism. And so it is that Pope Francis’ deceptive message to “come home” cause many to seek his approval rather than God who said, “Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge” (1 Tim. 6:20).
Many Protestants have been deceived to believe that Roman Catholicism, and by default Pope Francis, has changed from its pre-Reformation era of forced subjection. Not true! Since the early twentieth-century the pope’s have been conquering through false unity. And lack of spiritual discernment even among evangelicals has proven disastrous.
In June 2015 Pope Francis signed an official Treaty recognizing the State of Palestine to the justifiable anger of Israel. Then Francis also won over millions of evangelicals through their leaders like Rick Warren, Kenneth Copeland, James Robison, Joel Osteen, and many others.
Pope Francis conquers peoples, cultures and religions. He conquered Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and now-deceased Israeli leader Shimon Perez through a three-way prayer meeting at the Vatican. He conquered Protestant Reformation grievances via non-discerning pastors evidenced by the many who made a trek to the Vatican to fawn over his holiness, and then return to deceive their flocks with Francis’ deceptive message of unity. God forbid!
Francis conquered the 1,000 year-old rift with the Russian Orthodox Church. From Breitbart, “Schism That: Catholic Church, Russian Orthodox To Meet For First Time In 1,000 Years – On February 12  history will be made as Francis becomes the first pope ever to meet with the spiritual leader of Russian Orthodoxy, Patriarch Kirill of “Moscow and All Russia””.
Pope Francis has won over spiritual and religious leaders, kings and presidents from all over the world. Dr. Tom Horn, former evangelical pastor of 25 years, in his latest book, The Final Roman Emperor, The Islamic Antichrist, and The Vatican’s Last Crusade, makes this observation, “The “like a lamb” simile seems to flawlessly describe Pope Francis’ humble public persona, but under his leadership, the speech of the dragon is now resounding.”
In a chapter of the same book entitled, “Pope Francis: Destroyer”, Horn says, “Our last major confirmation is that Pope Francis is laying the groundwork for a one-world religion by merging pluralist/inclusivist branches of Judaism, Islam, and Christianity.” Dear saints, that’s the work of the Antichrist and you must be wise to it. Is your pastor teaching you about the rising beast?
Pope Francis is a deceiver, but most Christians don’t even care as they put their hope in the pre-trib rapture lie. Little to no attention is given to the testimony of Jesus for the end-times as many pastors have traded in the whole gospel of Christ for church traditions and political correctness. Believe Jesus that He gathers His elect, “Immediately after the tribulation” (Matt. 24:29–31).
