See article below; The political situations seem perfectly "set up" for the Pope to wade in and save the day. Glaringly obvious propaganda promoting the pope everywhere...
I think it might be time to start believing in a few conspiracy theories (though not all, of course, there are some crazy ones out there). Reading through this article I am amazed at how it seems there are a lot of situations in American politics that seem perfectly "set up" to make the Pope look like just the hero we "need" to wade in and "save the day." For example, since when did anyone in the US go to jail over their Christian "faith"? Never- until a month before the Pope's visit! Now to a lot of people he might look like a glorious savior when he makes all these kind of "wise" and "reasonable" statements about it. The other thing that sets things up to receive the pope is all the crazy presidential candidates. GOP candidates, esp the front-runner, are off the wall with crazy ideas which make you think the whole country might soon fall apart if they got elected. On the other side, you have the email scandal with Clinton. Here in this article the Pope addresses Trump's ridiculous idea of building a wall between US and Mexico with what appears to be "wise" and "timely" words.
I just can't believe that all this is mere coincidence how he is being made to look like a wise, mature and wonderful father figure who has just the right thing to say to bless and benefit all the squabbling children of American politics. They're making him look wonderful and this must be all part of the plan. If you notice carefully in a lot of news stories and publications there really was a lot of PROPAGANDA going on with this papal visit- trying to get everyone to like him - positive and glowing reports about him and everything he does.
This fits the picture that we have been given in scripture that says how the Pope will be made a world leader just before Christ comes. Psalms (chapter 2, I think) says the nations will "conspire" together. Revelation 18 indicates how much occult satanism enters political organizations toward the end of time. I have already posted about how the UN has connections with Alice Baily and the occult - working together with Lucifer (Lucis/Lucifer Trust UN NGO, etc.), the illuminati is setting up everything in the United States to get people to accept Pope Francis as a world leader. They are creating problems that he can solve and give "counsel" about using the wisdom of obvious truths - but it is all for the purpose of furthering an evil scheme to bring in one-world government and eventually one-world government under Lucifer.
The Vatican is very closely linked with Lucifer and the occult through symbolism and rituals. Any leadership the Pope has to offer our world would not be for the benefit of humanity. He is a self-proclaimed infallible God on earth, which the Bible prophecies of as being a blasphemer. The Pope/vatican is the antichrist. His official title adds up to "666." He is the "man" that the Bible says the number 666 is about.
Don't be fooled by this man's apparent "wisdom"....
Yes, because I went to church with him for several years, but I wasn't sure if saying that would seem unkind (to disagree with someone you know quite well from church).
He is a very nice person and has some good ideas, but I would not agree with everything he says for reasons I have mentioned.
I will repeat; Truly, if you believe it fits within your faith to legally marry homosexuals then you are making excuses for moral compromise which will never stand up to God's judgment.
I know many people gave up their jobs with out a fuss because they were required to work on Saturdays. This women could have quietly just quit her job without attracting much media attention.
Vicki, thanks for you post.
Another term for conspiracy theory is speculation which can be defined as:
Ideas or guesses about something that is not known.
Let’s deal with things that we do know, and I should start by saying this: The pope, i.e. papacy is an international institution that has spanned over the world affairs for more than a thousand years. Do you really think it needs some type of fabricate scenario for its involvement world affairs?
The reason the pope is perceived in the manner in which you have pointed out (…the Pope look like just the hero we "need" to wade in and "save the day.") is because it is like a lamb, and is involved in every dynamic of the world, and world events by use of its two horns as spoken of in Revelations.
…and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon.
These two horns (religious/political) are the powers by which it have and still now operate in the world affairs; these are seen in the dual roles of the office of the pope.
As the world religious leader, he is the head of the world’s largest Catholic, ‘Christian’ church. And as Vicar of Christ; it feels that it is responsible for all the people of the world as Christ representative, seeing that God create the entire human race. I read that somewhere, but cannot find it now, but here is something that echo that view.
“In 1938, Pope Pius XI addressed a group of visitors to the Vatican. There were some people, he said, who argued that the state should be all-powerful – "totalitarian". Such an idea, he went on, was absurd, not because individual liberty was too precious to be surrendered, but because "if there is a totalitarian regime – in fact and by right – it is the regime of the church, because man belongs totally to the church".” (The Pope and Mussolini: The Secret History of Pius XI and the Rise of Fascism in Europe – review)
The second role of the pope can be seen in his political involvement; as political leader and king of the Vatican nation, it has diplomatic relationship with over 100 nations of the world. Officially there are only 196 recognized nations in the world, and the pope has diplomatic relationship with over 100 of them.
Here are some comments made after the Vatican recently recognize the Palestinian State.
“…Palestinian leaders celebrated the Holy See’s endorsement as particularly important, given the international stature of Pope Francis…
“The Vatican is not just a state. The Vatican represents hundreds of millions of Christians worldwide, including Palestinians, and has vast moral significance,” said Husam Zomlot, a senior Palestinian foreign-affairs official.”
Yesterday the headlines read: “The Palestinian flag was raised outside the headquarters of the United Nations in New York for the first time Wednesday.”
These are present day headlines, “Pope plays key role in historic Cuba deal.”
HAVANA — Pope Francis hailed detente between the United States and Cuba as a model of reconciliation for the world, urging Presidents Barack Obama and Raul Castro to persevere in building normal ties as the pontiff launched a 10-day tour of the former Cold War foes Saturday.
Francis' surprisingly direct call for progress toward normalization came after weeks of Vatican assurances that he would not explicitly address politics during his pastoral trip to Cuba and the U.S. Francis served as mediator and guarantor of 18 months of secret negotiations that led to the resumption of diplomatic relations between the two countries this year.
A religious horn and a political horn has always been the instrument of its power. Historically the Vatican has endorsed every king or power that has ever ruled especially in the European world, even those that have attempted to rule going back to the Roman Empire. After the RE it has endorsed and crowned every ruler that has ruled even including Napoleon, Hitler and Mussolini.
--The Vatican Concordat with Hitler's Reich:
Seventy years ago a fateful meeting occurred in Rome. The Vatican’s secretary of state, Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli (the future Pope Pius XII), and Germany’s vice chancellor, Franz von Papen, formally signed a concordat between the Holy See and the German Reich on July 20, 1933.
This event ended negotiations that began after Adolf Hitler became Germany’s chancellor on Jan. 30, 1933. Among the witnesses to this event were Msgr. Giovanni Battista Montini (the future Pope Paul VI) and Msgr. Ludwig Kaas, the leader of Germany’s Catholic Center Party. Neither Pope Pius XI nor Hitler attended the meeting; both had already approved of the concordat. The pope ratified the agreement two months later on Sept. 10. The Concordat of 1933 specified the church’s rights in the Third Reich.
The political significance of the signing of the Concordat of 1933 was, however, ambiguous in its day and still remains so. Hitler interpreted the concordat to mean that he had won the church’s approval, thereby gaining international recognition of his Nazi regime. At least some German Catholics took the signing of the treaty as an indication that church officials had softened their opposition to National Socialism. (Read more)
All of this is not propaganda or conspiracy theory, but prophecy coming alive; it had two horns like a lamb.
Thanks, Gene. Yes, I agree that it's prophecy coming true. But I believe that it also fits within prophecy fulfillment that the nations are conspiring together (as it says in Psalm 2), and that includes some secret societies which have a certain agenda to promote the Pope and get the whole world to follow after him, which is propaganda in the truest sense.
It seemed I could perceive this clearly when I listened to news stories last week and everything seemed so perfectly orchestrated to say all the things which would get people to accept him as a one-world leader. For example, when one after another news station chose some supposedly random person who just happened to say things like "he is the hope of the world" and "he is bringing the whole world together," etc. etc. I don't believe all that is just coincidence- it's carefully planned behind the scenes. Lucifer only has one opportunity to deceive the whole world at the end of time and he's not going to leave it to chance- he's working together closely with occult organizations to bring about all of the things which will accomplish his final goal to rule the world and impersonate Christ's second coming.
That's interesting about the Pope and Hitler. I haven't read a lot about that but I know there were definitely connecting links between the two.
Hello Pastor T,
I said this in response to what she was saying that if we deny homosexuals marriage licenses we are denying them their religious freedom.
As far as whether it's a media set-up, it actually seems to me that it could be. The whole scenario is really fake and phony. I would be more inclined to believe that it was created by Illuminati master minds who want to make Christians look like fools than that it's a real person with a real problem. Especially the way they have her husband dress up like a country bumpkin in a straw hat, dirty shirt and overalls on the day that he was meeting presidential candidates on national television. That doesn't seem very likely to me that the husband of an elected official would have no more sense than that. I lived for some years not far south of there and no one our age dressed that way (she and her husband aren't all that much older than I am).
A lot of things you see in the media these days seem like pure propaganda if you realize what is being orchestrated. When every news and radio channel comes up with "spontaneous" interviews in which some young woman is gushing about how the Pope is the "hope of the world" and "bringing the whole world together," you can know it's media set-up.
Take care and God bless.
Well, it's true that some people go to extremes with that kind of thing and become almost superstitious, or like anti-government militant patriots - which is truly not balanced. But I don't think it's balanced to deny all evidence of any conspiracy theories either, when so many facts make it obvious that there are some things going on like that.
'What we know' does include many Bible prophecies that teach us that the nations will conspire together to form a one-world government in the end time (Psalm 2, Revelation 13, etc.). If we refuse to believe there is any kind of conspiracy at all going on, we might be denying the fulfillment of prophecies happening right before our eyes.
Isa 8:10 Take counsel together, and it shall come to nought; speak the word, and it shall not stand: for God is with us.
11 For the LORD spake thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying,
12 Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid.
13 Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.
So sad SDA people do not see government lamb's becoming a government lion !
The Bible speaks of conspiracy , it's a Hebrew word, a concept God knows and speaks about....
Do wee SDA people pretend such global conspiracies do not exist? So sad the foolish virgins let their Holy Spirit oil of wisdom vanish....
What we need fear most today is missing out on God and His power and control in our lives...
Yup. We were NEVER called to go into conspiracy theories
Hab 1:5 ¶ Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.
6 For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwellingplaces that are not theirs.
Jesus raises up antichrist in the end of time, I suppose because it helps wake up the Hebrew church sleeping into action to finish the work, a remnant is supposed to be doing
