Pope Francis aka the Possible Antichrist

“Never let the past determine your lives. Violence is not overcome by violence. Violence is overcome by peace.”-Pope Francis.

The famous gospel of Pope Francis. Is it Jesus that ‘overcomes violence,’ aka hatred. No, of course not. It is the elusive, “peace” he propagates. He is not a preacher of Jesus—who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life—he’s a preacher of peace, and the anti-christ is gonna be singing such a tune.

“In his place shall arise a contemptible person to whom royal majesty has not been given. He shall come in without warning and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.”-Daniel 11:21

And the antichrist is able to get a peace-treaty between Israel and her enemies. Something the pope just made a huge stepping-stone toward in his invitation this past Sunday for both the Israeli and Palestinian presidents to join him for a prayer of peace—to which the two agreed.

Yes, I believe this outwardly pious man may very well be the anti-chrisr or his side-kick false prophet prophesied of in the book of Revelation.

If Francis truly believes the bible, he would preach that only when Christ returns is all made right. And that peace is not a state of circumstances, it is a state of the heart. And Jesus Christ is the one who truly offers peace. Violence is overcome by love, and Jesus Christ is love. Unless He rules the heart, the heart will not have peace. And whether it be violence, adultery, theft, deceit, greed, envy, or pride, the sin of the heart cannot be overcome by anything but Christ Himself.

Love dissolves hate. If Pope Francis truly cared about the well-being of the Palestinians and Jews, he would preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to them. He would tell them of Christ’s immeasurable love which was displayed on that rugged cross nearly two thousand years ago when Jesus offered up His perfect life on behalf of this world of sinners, that we who trust in Him and repent (change our minds) will not perish but have eternal life. He would tell them that Christ rose from the grave to give us power over sin and death.

This is love, to share the truth of Jesus Christ.

Mr. Holy-Roller, Please Take Your Clothes Off

Do we find any of the twelve apostles of Apostle Paul walking around in glorious apparel, taking homage from the people? Did not even Christ Himself shun and disapprove of this? He walked around poor and lowly, humble, with no beauty that people would desire Him.

Yet we have priests and popes in the Catholic Church, parading around in robes of fine linen with high hats as though they were more holy or special than the rest of us saints.

Does God have favorites? Does not Jesus and the Apostles Paul and James warn about showing preference? They rebuked such exaltation of man! Don’t believe me?

“For there is no partiality with God. “(Romans 2:11)

“My brethren, do not hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with partiality. For if there should come into your assembly a man with gold rings, in fine apparel, and there should also come in a poor man in filthy clothes, and you pay attention to the one wearing the fine clothes and say to him, “You sit here in a good place,” and say to the poor man, “You stand there,” or, “Sit here at my footstool,” have you not shown partiality among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts? Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him? But you have dishonored the poor man. Do not the rich oppress you and drag you into the courts? Do they not blaspheme that noble name by which you are called? If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well; but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors.” (James 2:1-9)

“And you, masters, do the same things to them, giving up threatening, knowing that your own Master also is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.” (Ephesians 6:9)

Yes I shall speak with all boldness that God looks down on our exaltation of mere men like the pope and the papacy and regards it as sin!

I know that even nondenominational Christians do this. It is something Paul had to correct many of the early churches on:

For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” (I Corinthians 1:26-31)

“And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” (I Corinthians 2:1-5)

So please beloved, do not exalt any man. You can honor them by showing them practical love, but do not bow before them–not even angels allowed mortals to bow before them! (Revelation 22:8-9)

And check out what Peter did:

“As Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him and fell down at his feet and worshiped him. But Peter lifted him up, saying, “Stand up; I myself am also a man.” (Acts 10:25, 26)

May we all repent of this exaltation of man. And may them who embrace this glory repent! Yes, the popes and those in “holy” robes may they tear their clothing and fall down before God and beg Him for mercy for if they don’t, they have received their reward here on earth as Jesus said:

“Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly. “And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. “Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.”(Matthew 6:2-8)

Pope Francis: Preacher of Peace, or the Gospel?

Dear loved ones of the Catholic persuasion, do not be enamored by merely the concept of change. Many preach change, but read the fine print, the details of what that “change” entails.

Pope Francis “referred to St. Paul’s outreach to pagans and other religions, said that the church should include people who feel excluded, and preach peace.”

But dear loved ones, what did our Lord Jesus Himself teach?

“Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I *did not* come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.” (Matthew 10:34)

This is what Jesus taught us to preach:

“Go into all the world and preach *the gospel* to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.”(Mark 16:15, 16)

“And he commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one appointed by God to be judge of the living and the dead.”-Acts 10:42

“From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”-Matthew 4:17

Jesus taught for people to repent, to turn from their sins and follow Him. He did not walk around preaching mere “peace.” He is peace. When you get right with Him by accepting Him as Lord and forsaking your sin you receive peace with God.

Let us just listen well and continue to pray. I do not know pope Francis’ heart, I only know his words. But words do eventually reveal what is in the heart.

Do we seek to please men or God? The gospel truth does polarize. Jesus taught, “He who is not for me is against me.” And in Revelation that He would “vomit from His mouth” lukewarm Christians.

Peace on this earth full of sinners and wicked men is impossible. Heaven on earth will never, ever happen until Jesus returns and rules it Himself with a rod.

Forget peace. Preach the gospel. Salvation is infinitely more important than tranquility without eternal life.

Christian, don’t get caught up in the hype. Anti-Christ will bring temporary “peace” and then he will rule with an iron fist and force the world to worship him.

Don’t seek peace alone. Seek Christ, and in so doing, in Him alone, one will find peace.

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:28, 29)
