We’re now in a highly deceptive interim awaiting the “covenant with many” (Dan. 9:27a). True Christians must discern this deception and the mounting hostilities against us while our message must remain exclusive in this: “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God” (Eph. 2:8); and that Jesus Christ is exclusively “the way, the truth and the life.[and that] No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).
There is, however, a deceptive works-based religious antithesis to that message that is and will continue to be led by a One World Order-minded global leader, one who is not only respected but is virtually worshiped. He is the Jesuit, Pope Francis, the first rider of the apocalypse on a white horse, a counterfeit of Christ on His white horse of Rev. 19:11, an imposter deceptively conquering world religions. In this interim he’s already unified deceived and false Christians, Judaism, Islam, and pagan religions, even people of no religious affiliation. After he completes his unifying role, the global hatred against born again Christians explodes just as Jesus promised, saying, “and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake” (Matt. 24:9).
The true Church is under heavy demonic attack right now by the Roman Pontiff. Do you discern his deceitful papal overtures and Mary-worship being introduced? Satan’s false church demands global unity as the EU builds its One World Order, the modern-day Babel. “Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, ‘Come and see.’ 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. 6:1-2). And “It was granted to him [the Antichrist] to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue and nation” (Rev. 13:7;~Dan. 7:21).
Popes took the title Vicar of Christ, meaning substitute, or “in place of Christ”. But when the Reformation exposed their evils, the popes exchanged their vicious ways for a pretense of non-violence. Thus the Rev. 6:1–2 end-time rider on a white horse has a bow but no arrows, a force without teeth, yet skilled to go out “conquering and to conquer”. Not only does the pope’s royal throne, tiara and attire deceptively represent Christ’s, but his Papal Cross shows Jesus dead on the cross, a strong subliminal message that Christ is dead but that, he, the pope lives!
It’s well-recorded that since his conclave election six years ago, of March 2013, Pope Francis has gone out “conquering and to conquer” global religious belief systems, uniting them as one unto himself. Several articles confirming this can be found here, here, here and here. But don’t be deceived, and don’t ever give your allegiance to the pope of Roman Catholicism. God has given us physical descriptions of the great harlot, even of her proud, pretentious royal colors.
The history and desire of the popes of Rome has always been to make forced religious allegiance under their power and control. For twelve centuries they largely succeeded by using bribes, paid indulgences and forced worship. And when that no longer worked, the next four centuries was a religious bloodbath of brutality, persecution, murder, and the creation of Jesuit death-squads. We should never think that their mission has reversed just because they now appear to be a kinder and gentler friend of the world. Their mission is yet to utterly dominate, by whatever means, all religions of the world. And in these last days their deceptions have worked very well for them.
God identifies, for our benefit, the false church and spiritual harlot in living color: “The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” (Rev. 17:4–5).
The papal throne’s centuries-long, murderous conquest to gain control over religions has now been all but forgotten. Pope Francis has, of necessity, reinvented Roman Catholicism as a kinder, gentler, unifying brand of Christianity. Yet, Satan’s evil spirit of anti-Christ governs the Vatican, and its works-based idolatrous apostasy continues unabated. And consider that Pope Francis has, with the help of deceiving spirits, won large sectors of evangelical Christians, even to many evangelicals calling him Holy Father! Know that, “the falling away” is unmistakably here!
The popes desecrate the communion table of the Lord which is to be received in “remembrance of Me” (1 Cor. 11:24–25), in that, their transubstantiation teaches that upon the priest’s blessings the elements physically change into the body and blood of Christ. Therein “they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame” (Heb. 6:6). God has visually described the harlot who sits on many waters, and even since the 15th Century Protestant Reformation those who came out of Catholicism knew the popes of Rome not only fulfilled the prophesies of “false christs” (Matt. 24:24), but that the pope’s would ultimately fulfill the end-time prophecy of the Antichrist.
By physical and spiritual descriptions, God identifies for us “the great harlot who sits on many waters” (Rev. 17:1), and alerts us to the fact that “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, nations, and tongues” (Rev. 17:15). Globally, Satan’s counterfeit church sits upon many waters of “peoples, nations, and tongues”, in fact, more so than any other religious system known among mankind. Satan’s false church is practically in every country, state, city, town, village and hamlet, enticing the biblically ignorant with her counterfeit Christianity.
Not only has Pope Francis won false religions of the world, but he’s also seduced evangelical leaders, pastors, their ministers and flocks, some pictured here but many others not pictured here. This is apostasy among evangelicals. The Scriptures reveal that Antichrist establishes a One World Religion, which was this pope’s mission since his election, the first-ever Jesuit, to lead the great harlot. If you don’t know the history of the “Jesuits”, do research and find out why Jesuits have historically been hostile to true born again Christians.
On April 9, 2019, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu won another term in Israel’s general election, and the proposed Trump / Kushner, Israeli / Palestinian peace plan is supposed to be disclosed shortly hereafter. And as we consider the signs of the times and imminent rise of “the son of perdition” (2 Thess. 2:3) who mesmerizes the world with the “covenant with many” (Dan. 9:27), one cannot help but recognize the Vatican’s role in that covenant-making process given the fact that Pope Francis has already authored two covenants with Palestine. Now, justifiably, Israel awaits its “covenant with many”, which divides up God’s Land! But “when they say, ‘Peace and safety!’ then sudden destruction comes upon them” (1 Thess. 5:3).
As shown above, Pope Francis has falsely united world religions, even Islam and Judaism. He’s won the favor of the new Mormon Church in Rome. He’s wooed the Dali Lama and Buddhism, and he’s found unity with the Hindu and Sikh religions. Prior to Pope Francis’s reign, no one has united such diverse religions, but he, being the world’s pontiff, works the U.N’s 2030 Agenda of a One World Religion by the ever-increasing powers and deceiving spirits of Antichrist.
True Christianity that worships God’s Son Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth, is under heavy satanic attack, as the Restrainer of evil increasingly lessens His restraint. In order for the end of this age to come, the Restrainer of evil (see 2 Thess. 2:6–7) will altogether remove His restraint for the final 3 1/2 year period called “the great tribulation” (Matt. 24:21), when “the man of sin, the son of perdition” (2 Thess. 2:3) rules “with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved” (2 Thess. 2:9–10). Have you received the love of the truth?
