The new Jesuit pope is moving rapidly into the vacuum of world politics. As post-Christian America gives up its leadership to the “community of nations,” a vacuum is left that Satan’s end-time leaders are quick to fill.
During Pope Francis’ visit to the Middle East, he invited Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli President Shimon Peres for a “prayer meeting” in the Vatican. They agreed to a date of June 8. To round out the meeting, the Orthodox “Pope,” Bartholomew I, was also invited.
Focus of the event was prayer for peace; that confrontation in war must be replaced with negotiations and dialog; that all must come together as brothers under the same “father-god.”
When they came together, each had prepared his own “prayer speech” to deliver to his particular god. Pope Francis invoked the “God of peace.” Although Abbas used the name “God” in his prayer as translated to English, it is safe to assume that he was directing his petition to his god, Allah.
Peres quoted from the Psalms and Proverbs with more emphasis on speech than on prayer.
Peres and Abbas both centered their attention on Jerusalem as vital to peace for Israel and the Palestinians. To Abbas, it was Islam’s “gate to heaven.”
For Peres, “The Holy City of Jerusalem is the beating heart of the Jewish People.” In his prayer/speech, the pope avoided the subject altogether, mentioning only the “Holy Land” and “Middle East,” as he emphasized his subject of peace and brotherhood “as children of one Father.”
So, what is wrong with this picture? First of all, the assumption was that they all worshipped the same god, since all three are descendents of Abraham in their three common “monotheistic religions.” This, of course, has become almost a given in the world. President George W. Bush declared as much, after 9/11. Recent popes have all promoted the idea. Many evangelicals have also bought into the concept.
But can this be true? Not if you believe the Bible! How can the pope’s wafer “Jesus,” Abbas’ tribal moon god, and Peres’ two-thirds God (leaving out Jesus) all be “One?” I suppose, since none of these is the true, biblical, Creator, this leaves only one alterative: the “god of this world.” Are not all these confused leaders described in Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians, 4:3-4: “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not…”?
How sad that these men of such worldly power are looking for “peace” in all the wrong places. Only the Prince of Peace can deliver what they are looking for.
But, as detailed in previous issues of Battle Cry, this pope is starting a very bold play for unity, bringing all the religions together under one False Prophet, cohort of the Beast of Revelation 16.
Pope Francis is well aware of the need to also unify the politics of the world into a one-world government as part of the package.
Basic to this goal is the development of a one-world Bible. Author David W. Daniels has described in detail how a plan to “fix” the Bible began shortly after the Reformation.
Having failed to stamp out the preserved Words of God during the Inquisition, Satan formed a strategy to begin discrediting it and replacing it with new versions increasingly acceptable to all religions: eventually one world Bible for one world religion.
