Just when you thought that you have heard everything there is to hear, Pope Francis continued to EXALT the IDOL of the Roman Catholic version of Mary, by commending all of the inhabitants of the “Holy Land” to Mary!
REGINA COELI: FRANCIS COMMENDS THE HOLY LAND AND HER INHABITANTS TO MARY
Vatican City, 25 May 2014 (VIS) – After proposing the Vatican as the the location for a prayer meeting between the presidents of the State of Palestine and the State of Israel, Pope Francis prayed the Regina Coeli, commenting that it was precisely there in Bethlehem that Mary gave birth to her Son Jesus and that the Virgin “is the one who, more than any other person, contemplated God in the human face of Jesus. Assisted by Saint Joseph, she wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in the manger”.
“To Mary we entrust this land and all who dwell here, that they may live in justice, peace and fraternity”, he said. “We entrust also the pilgrims who come here to draw from the sources of the Christian faith – so many of them are also present at this Holy Mass. Mary, watch over our families, our young people and our elderly. Watch over those who have lost faith and hope. Comfort the sick, the imprisoned and all who suffer. Watch over the Church’s Pastors and the entire community of believers; may they may be ‘salt and light’ in this blessed land. Sustain all educational initiatives, particularly Bethlehem University”. [Vatican City, 25 May 2014 (VIS)]
Yesterday I pointed out the fact that Pope Francis sought the blessing of Mary, for his trip to the “Holy Land,” and I contrasted that with the truth that Jesus Christ is the one person who he should have sought. I did that to show you all that we are dealing with a false religious system, that has made such inroads into the modern day “church” that it is downright scary. The truth that Jesus Christ is the way, truth and the life is simple basic Christianity 101!
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)
In fact it was the Lord who told his own followers that the Holy Spirit (a person) would testify about him when he was physically removed from the earth. The Lord desired that the true born again believer would be COMFORTED by the Holy Spirit of truth!
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall TESTIFY of ME: (John 15:26)
That is exactly what happens inside the heart of every true born again believer in Jesus Christ. When I got saved it was Jesus, Jesus and more Jesus that came out from my heart! I removed the rosary beads and all the other Roman Catholic trinkets and idols out of my home! My Roman Catholic testimony about Mary ceased immediately and I began preaching and proclaiming Jesus Christ and him alone!
Every true born again Bible believing Christian knows that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way, the ONLY truth and the ONLY life. It is most unfortunate that there are tons of plastic preachers who have joined hands with Rome, and speak nothing about their false doctrines, and simply look the other way.
Here is some more madness for you to digest today. Pope Francis has invited Mahmoud Abbas (a Muslim) and Shimon Peres (a Jewish man) to come to the Vatican to pray for peace.
FRANCIS INVITES MAHMOUD ABBAS AND SHIMON PERES TO PRAY TOGETHER IN THE VATICAN FOR PEACE
Vatican City, 25 May 2014 (VIS) – At the end of the Eucharistic celebration, the Pope invited the president of the State of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas, and the president of the State of Israel, Shimon Peres, to meet in the Vatican to pray together for peace.
“In this, the birthplace of the Prince of Peace, I wish to invite you, President Mahmoud Abbas, together with President Shimon Peres, to join me in heartfelt prayer to God for the gift of peace”, said the Pope following the Regina Coeli. “I offer my home in the Vatican as a place for this encounter of prayer”.
First of all the invitation to a Muslim and a Jewish person to pray for peace came after a “Eucharistic celebration” which is talking about the Roman Catholic eucharist. Once again I remind you that one of the purposes of the Roman Catholic Mass (according to them) is to satisfy the justice of God for sins committed against him. In other words, it is the Catholic priest (and him alone) who has the power to perform such a Mass, where God’s justice is then satisfied. That is the ultimate deception, and countless millions are still being deceived by that teaching.
Second of all, it is no secret that the Muslims do not believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, in fact they do not believe that God even has a son. The Muslims refer to Jesus Christ as a prophet and nothing more. The Jewish people on the other hand do not believe that Jesus Christ is Lord. They do not believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah or even the Son of God. In fact there is a scripture passage where the religious Jewish leaders wanted to KILL Jesus for healing a man on the Jewish Sabbath day, and making the claim that he (Jesus) was the Son of God.
The man departed, and told the JEWS that it was Jesus, which had made him whole. And therefore did the JEWS persecute Jesus, and sought to SLAY him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day. But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto (up until now), and I work. Therefore the JEWS sought the more to KILL him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that GOD was his Father, making himself EQUAL with GOD. (John 5:15-18)
The Muslims and the Jews both reject the testimony of the scriptures which is found in our Bible ladies and gentlemen. What you see taking place over in the so called “Holy Land” right now should be at the very top of the HIGH ALERT scale in the heart of any true born again, Bible believing Christian. The modern day, plastic preachers have lived in the grey area for such a long time, and they have led multitudes astray as a result of their compromise. There are millions of sincere Christians who do not want to rock the boat so they also remain silent, as they submit to their compromising Pastors. They are sincere, but they are sincerely DECEIVED. The days of living in the grey ecumenical area have come to an end. True Christians are going to have to make a choice to completely join hands with Rome and her false gospel, or completely reject it and encourage others to do the same. The Bible tells us that those who do not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of an antichrist spirit. The Muslims and Jews both reject the truth that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that he is Lord and Messiah, and so they fit comfortable into the category of having an antichrist spirit.
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. (1 John 2:22)
For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. (2 John 1:7)
The very fact that Pope Francis has invited unbelievers to pray for peace is downright incredible. Here you have a man (Pope Francis) claiming to represent true Christianity, joining hands with two people (Muslim Mahmoud Abbas, and Jewish man Shimon Peres) who are of an ANTICHRIST SPIRIT according to the Bible (God’s Word)! Both, Muslim Abbas and Jewish Peres deny without compromise, that Jesus Christ is Lord, Messiah and the Son of God, and Pope Francis has invited them to pray for peace!
I want you to understand what Christ coming in the flesh means, in simple language. It means that the Messiah who was promised to come in the scriptures, has already come, and it is speaking about Jesus Christ. The word Christ means Messiah, so it is talking about the biblical truth that Jesus is in fact the promised Messiah, the one who was slain for our sins, and the one who rose from the dead. Does the Muslim leader Mahmoud Abbas believe that? NO, because Jesus is nothing more than a prophet in his sight. Does the Jewish leader Shimon Peres believe that? NO, as a Jewish man he is still waiting for the Messiah to come, and he absolutely does not believe that Jesus was the promised Messiah! So the Word of God (specifically the scriptures found in 1 John 2:22, 2 John 1:7) warn us that those who do NOT believe the truth about Jesus being the promised Messiah, are LIARS, DECEIVERS and of an ANTICHRIST spirit? Do they BOTH fall into that category? If YOU answer YES then YOU are in agreement with God’s Word (the scriptures). If YOU answer NO, then YOU are in opposition to God’s Word (the scriptures). The bottom line is this folks. GOD knows that Mahmoud Abbas and Shimon Peres are unbelievers, and we are to preach the word of God to them and tell them that unless they repent they will perish! (Luke 13:3) Jesus told the Jewish people in his day that they would die in their sins if they did not believe in him.
I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. (John 8:24)
After Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah rose from the dead he said that those who believed in him would be SAVED, but the unbelievers would be DAMNED!
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. (Mark 16:15-16)
The Muslim leader Mahmoud Abbas, the Jewish leader Shimon Peres and the Roman Catholic Pope Francis must believe in the Lord Jesus Christ in order to be saved. They must be born again God’s way as Jesus Christ told the Jewish ruler Nicodemus:
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. (John 3:6-7)
Here is another passage of scripture that warns the believer about joining hands (yoking up) with unbelievers:
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:14-18)
You can either believe the scriptures (God’s Word) or you can listen to the smooth talking Pastors and preachers who are incredibly skillful at manipulating the Word of God. The true born again believer has the Holy Spirit of truth living inside them, and they know that they should not join hands with those who reject Jesus Christ, lest they set themselves up for BIG trouble. We as Christians should never forget the words of our Lord Jesus Christ regarding HIS kingdom and HIS peace.
Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. These things I have spoken unto you, that IN ME ye might have PEACE. In the WORLD ye shall have TRIBULATION: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:32-33)
There can be NO PEACE for any person in the world, outside of the true peace which comes from knowing Jesus Christ! How can you pray for peace with those who reject PEACE in Jesus Christ? The Lord’s Kingdom is a spiritual kingdom, and ONLY those who have been truly born again of the Spirit know that PEACE in Jesus Christ! The UNHOLY TRINITY (The Roman Catholic Pope, The Unbelieving Muslims and the Unbelieving Jews) are seeking a peace that is found in THIS world, but Jesus said that HIS Kingdom was NOT of this world!
Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the CHIEF PRIESTS have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done? JESUS answered, MY KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS WORLD: IF MY KINGDOM were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the JEWS: but now is MY KINGDOM not from hence. (John 18:35-36)
