Is the Pope the False Prophet? /Läs denna artikel, den är faktiskt bra, och tycks klargöra många saker:
“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” – (Rev.13:11).
The book of Revelation tells us of two human beasts that combine together to rule the world during the great tribulation just before the second coming of Christ. They are called the beast and the false prophet. The political superpower beast is the emperor called “The Beast.” His religious sidekick is the religious superpower beast called “The False Prophet.” (Rev.13 – 16:13-19-19:20-20:10). The political beast rules as emperor because of superior military power and the false prophet rules because his religious empire is worldwide. These are the world’s two great powers that rule over the bodies and souls of men for a short time until Christ comes back to rule as King of Kings and High Priest over planet earth forever.
The Old Testament had many false prophets and the New Testament also says – “Many false prophets are gone out into the world” – (I Jn.4:1). These false prophets speak lies in the Lord’s name – (Jer.14:14). The false prophet of Revelation is the embodiment of all the false prophets that have preceded him. If they are liars, he is the liar; if they are deceivers, he is the deceiver; if they purport to work miracles of God to undergird their claims, he is the satanic miracle worker. If they deceive the world to commit idolatry so detested by God , he is the greatest promoter of idolatry of all. He is the religious mouthpiece for the beast. He is, in a word, the false prophet of all false prophets. He will be Satan’s masterpiece of religious deceit.
No other false prophet is greater today or has more prestige and preeminence than the Pope. He is the leader of one billion Roman Catholic idolaters and idolatry is the mark of false religion from one end of the Bible to the other. The Pope is the leading religious figure whose endorsement is most important for the political beast to have in order to ensure his world following. The Pope is positioned perfectly to be the false prophet. The Pope is the epitome of all false prophets that have been before. As God’s watchman I’m blowing the trumpet of warning – beware of the false prophet Pope. The pope will make an alliance with the president of the U.S. (the beast) in order to rule the world as the Catholic Church has done many times in history.
Catholicism has been making images for people to worship for many centuries and so she is the obvious one to make an image of the beast for the world to worship. She also has a thick dosier of documented miracles that prepares her for the greater satanic miracles prophesied of the false prophet – (Rev.13:13,14).
In the very nature of things, people will not accept a false prophet unless he succeeds in deceiving them into believing that he is a true prophet. People are not deceived if they know it. Deception, by definition, means that one believes something which is not true, although he believes it to be true. There will be mass spiritual hypnosis of the masses to seduce them into believing the lie because they received not the love of God’s truth. God allows Satan to use strong delusion to convince the world’s people to believe the false prophet and worship the beast and his image. “Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” – (2 Thes.2:9-12). In other words, the False Prophet receives worldwide acclaim as a person great and mighty. The unsaved masses of humanity actually believe this man is the special instrument of God, although in reality he is the special tool of Satan and the notorious accomplice of the beast – Mr.666. The death of Pope John Paul and the incredible idolatry to him around the world on TV shows that the strong delusion has already begun.
“And he had two horns like a lamb, ad he spake as a dragon.” The lamb represents Christ in the Bible. The Pope is called “Vicar of Christ” and is projected as the representative of Christ on earth. “Like a lamb” shows that he is representing Christianity – he’s a false Christian prophet. The Pope is the most famous religious man on earth to be “like a lamb”. The pope’s mitre literally has two horns and the catholic encyclopedia itself calls it a “two-horned mitre.”
These horns speak of religious power and none is more powerful than the Pope. (Mt.1:15) says – “Beware of false prophets which come to you in sheep’s clothing: but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” The Pope literally dresses in sheep’s clothing. He wears a “pallium” which is a shawl made out of Lamb’s wool raised by Trappist monks outside of Rome. It has embroidered on it the feet of lambs. No false prophet has ever worn such deceitful and expensive religious vestments. And of course he wears a white “dog collar” which is slang for a clerical collar and marks him as a wild dog – a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
He speaks as a dragon (Satan). He speaks false doctrine and heresies and lies of Satan, especially false salvation which damns millions of souls into the Lake of Fire. He’s a minister of Satan and will never get anyone saved or born again and never preaches “ye must be born again”(Jn.3:3) He uses his mouth as a ravening wolf spewing false doctrine that destroys multiplied millions. “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways: by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of” – (2 Pet.2:1,2). Not only does the Pope speak this deadly false doctrine in Catholic churches, but Catholic priests do the same in protestant churches (It’s called ecumenism). The only religious institution that could produce a viable candidate for the office of the false prophet is the Roman Catholic church with its’ highly visible leader – the Pope – who is himself an icon. The false prophet is a false teacher of false doctrine. And Satan would be at his most deceitful when his false prophet would also be the chief defender of Catholic doctrine as head of The Congregation for the Doctrine of the faith – hence Ratzinger. Peter warns us of the deceitful prophet that deceives the world into believing that the pope is the successor of Peter.
He gives himself many more flattering titles than any man on earth, totally against God’s Word – “Let me not, I pray you, accept any man’s person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man” – (Job.32:21). All the little Catholic priests are called “Father” and the Pope “Holy Father” and yet Jesus said – “And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven” – (Mt.23:9). No born again saint would ever call the pope “Holy Father” and blaspheme the Lord and when President Bush called the pope “Holy Father” I knew he was just another deceiver. The Pope is also called “His Holiness” by the undiscerning world. His other flattering tiles are: Bishop of Rome, Vicar of Jesus Christ, Successor of the Prince of the Apostles, Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church, Patriarch of the West, Primate of Italy, Archbishop and Metropolitan of the Roman Province and Sovereign of the State of Vatican City, Servant of the Servants of God and Prince of Peace. This is the pinnacle of pride that Jesus refused when tempted by Satan – (Mt.4:5,6).
Roman Catholicism is the false Christianity of the world and Oh how they love it. It is a made-for-TV, spectacle of gorgeous magnificence. Lights, colors, vestments, music, incense, images, cathedrals, highly colored robes, candles, bells and the showy pageantry for which Romanism is known and the unsaved world loves. The world and it’s leaders and all the TV newsman praised and glorified and idolized John Paul II at his recent death. This included so-called protestant TV ministers like Billy Graham, Jack Van Impe, Jerry Fallwell, and Pat Robertson as they have sold out to Satan in order to keep millions of dollars flowing into their coffers, much of which comes from Catholics. “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, o man of God, flee these things…” – (I Tim.6:10,11). The love of money has destroyed many preachers and they lose their spiritual discernment and praise false prophets. “Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! For so did their fathers to the false prophets” – (Luke 6:26). The whole world was united in praise to a false prophet Pope. And the new Pope, may very well be the last Pope – The False Prophet. Oh the blasphemy of a man being reverenced as God upon the earth.
The Bible warns us of the devil’s ministers masquerading as God’s ministers in (2 Cor.11:13-15) “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness.” The majority of Christian ministers in the world are the devil’s ministers, being made and ordained by man but are not born again, called ministers of the Lord Jesus. Jesus had twelve apostles in his church and one was a false apostle – Judas, the Son of Perdition, possessed by Satan himself. The devil always has his counterfeit ministers preaching heresy and getting nobody saved. Remember, one of the Pope’s titles is – Successor of the Prince of the Apostles.
The devil has ministers – ordained and trained in denominational theological schools. They take up the ministry as a vocation. They preach a false liberal antichrist gospel. They appear on the surface to be the true servants of Christ because they have a degree from a religious institution. They dress with religious garments and carry out the form of service as planned by the denominational hierarchy. They stand behind the pulpit and use a liberal Bible and outwardly appear like ministers of God, but inwardly they are hypocrites. Satan takes on the outward appearance of a pure, holy personality but inwardly he is a deadly deceiver and destroyer and leads people to Hell. Satan knows he can do more harm on the inside of the church than he can on the outside. He destroys by infiltration like a spy pretending to be what he is not. He’s an imposter and counterfeiter.
You must be born again and know Bible truth in order to have discernment in these end days of apostasy. You can only trust your King James Bible and the Holy Spirit, the Great Teacher. You must study the Bible and meditate on it and grow up to a mature Christian in order not to be mislead. You simply cannot trust your pastor’s word or anybody else’s word. You can only trust the infallible Word of God.
Dear Roman Catholic, I was a Catholic for 31 years until the Lord saved me on March 17, 1972 and I have a burden and compassion for others who are blindly following the Pope. I strive to preach the truth in love and I earnestly desire for people to also be saved and go to heaven and not hell. It is not hate speech to preach the truth and point out the grievous wolves masquerading as shepherds and destroying the sheep. I praise the Lord that someone preached the truth to me so that I could be saved. (See my tract – “Out of Roman Catholic Darkness”).
I urge you to repent of your sins and by faith believe on Christ in your heart for forgiveness of sins. “For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast” – (Eph.2:8,9). Don’t confess your sins to a sinful priest. Confess and repent of them by faith to the sinless Lord Jesus Christ. – “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” – (I Jn.1:9). Believe the infallible Word of God, not the Pope. Your eternal destiny depends upon it.
