Prophecy is going to be fulfilled in September 2015. It's time for us to start preparing ourselves.
So this Pastor is saying that these verses do not apply to the U.S, How could they do verse 17 if they had no economic power. China already does not listen to them even now. They only respect economic power. Unless you want to switch these verses to the 2# economic power China. Then you have change the papacy as the beast also . China has no love for the Pope . Americans are too focused on their own country that they think the world will follow right after them. Isn't the gospel enough to change people's heart and do the right thing. The U.S economic will happen Jesus melts the earth at His second coming before that Satan will use it to do his will.
Revelation 13: 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.
Roland, you have no idea what goes behinds the scene don't you? You might think the Pope may appear as an humble man but you think just because China may be appear to hate to Pope but I'm 100% that he is preparing the entire world to enforce the national. Whether a country is communist, socialist, Islamic, terrorists, and etc; they have the Pope under their grip.
You are saying that in truth the Pope rules the world, we just don't know about it. He secretly tells the Muslims, Hindus, Buddhist, Taoist, Confusionist, Atheist, and Protestants, what to do?
Leon you would know as a insider.
Ian you are back to Elijah.
As a Italian, Former Catholic, the answer is yes on all points. The Roman Empire still exist politically and also religiously. Church and State.
Since Ian as deemed me an insider, I would say definitively that you are predicting based on agenda rather than fact. From there it is a slippery slope to madness.
I am being bombarded by self proclaimed prophets. So much prediction and so little accountability.
The one with a agenda is you Leon, you spreads your false gospel and deceit trying to scatter the flock.
So if it does not happen by September 30th, then what?
I pretty sure that this goes against Revelation 13 :15 - 18 . We love and serve God because He loved us . We should already be serving God with out the need fear tactics.
Roland, not sure if you have heard the news since you are not in the United States, did you know that all 50 states any homo or lesbian can get legally married?
What does it tells you?
