The pope is a pretty popular guy these days. Nothing new for the 1.5 billion Roman Catholics worldwide as the Pontifex Maximus has always held a degree of awe for the so-called faithful. Now his popularity is gaining steam as the world witnesses the rebirth of the Roman Catholic Church (and the unfolding of biblical prophecy) through Pope Francis.
Elected in March 2013, Pope Francis has been on a mission to ramp up the church’s evangelical efforts by cleaning up its tarnished image stained by news of lavish bishops and pedophile priests. Taking on the name of St. Francis of Assisi, Pope Francis has also explicitly embodied the traits of his namesake preferring to live a life of humility and simplicity. Great news, right?
Not so much.
King James Version (KJV)
Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
The Holy Bible warns us against discerning righteousness based on outward appearance alone. When the Lord sent Samuel to anoint David as Israel’s second earthly king, He told him this: I Samuel 16: 7 But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.
In an earlier post, we expounded on the Roman Catholic Church, detailing its place in world history and biblical prophecy as the “Mother of Harlots.” A recent article confirms the validity of this point as Pope Francis lays the groundwork for the appearance of the Abomination of Desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet (Daniel 12: 1, 8-11).
In his work to reflect a gentler and more accepting Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis is denouncing what he calls, “the idolatry of money.” In his 84-page apostolic exhortation titled “Evangelii Gaudium” or “The Joy of the Gospel”, Pope Francis states,
“…as long as the problems of the poor are not radically resolved by rejecting the absolute autonomy of markets and financial speculation and by attacking the structural causes of inequality, no solution will be found for the world’s problems or, for that matter, to any problems.”
If the world is to take his advice and reject the “absolute autonomy of markets”, then what would be the alternative? A world where poverty is then effectively addressed through a regulated universal financial system? Perhaps.
We have all heard of the NEW WORLD ORDER. However, how many know that according to biblical prophecy, the pope will be the man behind it? In order for a new government to control the world, it must have power. According to Revelations 17, all the leaders of the Earth must be subject to the papacy. We can speculate from the above quote that a new global government is preparing to take control by monopolizing our money.
The World Goodwill Commentary tells us about the United Nations’ plans:
“The UN, through its international conferences and special sessions, has called the world’s attention to…the need for a new international economic order…the work of the UN goes forward, steadily building the foundation for a new world order.”
An earlier edition of the Commentary tells us this:
“Many United Nations agencies such as the Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), World Health Organisation (WHO), UNICEF and the World Bank are coordinating their efforts to correct this chronic global problem of hunger…the new world order cannot proceed without it.”
A new economic order means a new world order. In fact, by controlling the food supply under the guise of dealing will world hunger, the United Nations can actually control the world’s population. Reducing the global population has been part of the “New Age” world order plan from the beginning.
New Age advocate, Benjamin Creme said this:
“…a complete change in the world’s financial and economic order is imperative.”
He also said this:
“The food exists. It is simply not distributed. The Hierarchy have plans already made, ready to be put into effect when the will is there, which will equally distribute the food. There is a group of high Initiates—industrialists, economists, administrators, of great experience and achievement—who, with Hierarchy, have worked out plans and blueprints which will solve the redistribution problems of the world, when the political will is there to implement them. These plans are there, ready to transform the world. This can be done in no time at all. The UN is in agreement with the social and spiritual movements who say that an economic order is crucial for a new world order. A World Goodwill study says this: “New International Economic Order” (NIEO) is definitely needed. World Goodwill tells us that the “quest for a N.I.E.O. was initiated in 1974 at a special session of the U.N. General Assembly.”
Of course the members of the U.N. agree:
“We, the members of the United Nations…solemnly proclaim our united determination to work urgently for The Establishment of a new economic international order.”
The Spirit of prophecy has for long warned us of the times we are living in and even what is ahead!
Revelation 13: 11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Only time will tell. In the meantime, we urge you to do as Jesus told his disciples in Luke 21: 36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
