Pope Francis Calls on World Leaders to Support the Poor, Environment · March 28, 2013

At his installation Mass in St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis called on world leaders to protect the environment, the weakest and the poorest. Speaking in terms of peace, the pope said that exercising “love and tenderness would not allow ‘omens of destruction,’ hatred, envy and pride to “defile our lives.”

The simplified Mass was attended by leaders and delegations from 132 nations and churches and 150,000 people jammed into the sunny piazza as the 266th pope, if the apostle Peter (who wasn’t a pope) is included, was installed as head of 1.2 billion Catholics.

The Vatican defied an EU travel ban on Robert Mugabe the president of Zimbabwe and a Roman Catholic and permitted him to attend the Mass, saying that all Catholics are welcome to attend the installation. Francis bowed to him and shook his hand. Mugabe is banned from EU travel because of human rights abuses and vote rigging in Zimbabwe’s own “dirty war.”

Speaking to the leaders of nations present at the massive gathering, Francis said: “I would like to ask all those who have positions of responsibility in economic, political and social life, and all men and women of goodwill… Let us be protectors of creation, protectors of God’s plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another and of the environment.”

“I want to ask you to walk together, and take care of one another… and don’t forget that this bishop who is far away loves you very much. Pray for me,” he said.

Francis’ charismatic personality thrilled the crowd as he spontaneously stopped his jeep to kiss and bless babies on the way around the square. On one occasion he stopped the vehicle and went into the crowd to bless a disabled man in a wheelchair. With his characteristic thumbs up, and mischievous smile, he worked the cheering crowd like a master politician.

“And by peace he shall destroy many…” Daniel 8:25

“And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him…” Revelation 13:8.

Who, or what, is the Antichrist? Evil alliance, or sinister individual? Some say his appearance is still in the future. Others say he appeared long ago in the days of ancient Rome. But the Bible indicates that he is alive today! The Bible prophecies teach this antichrist power will play a crucial role in the final events of earth’s history. Do you know who he is? Are you sure? You need to be, …

Summary: Revelation 13 discusses two beasts: the beast from the sea and the beast from the earth. These beasts will have great authority at the end of time and use their power to enforce the Beast’s mark.

 

 
This article is part of a series. We recommend that you first read: Daniel Prophesies of the AntichristBabylon Introduction.
First beast of Revelation 13.

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy…And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life…

2nd Beast Revelation 13

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. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed…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 (Revelation 13:1,8,11-12,16). 

 

This passage describes two beasts that will dominate world events at the end of time. The first arises out of the sea, and the second out of the earth. The second beast causes all that dwell upon the earth to worship the first beast, and in so doing they receive the mark of the Beast. Again, by applying the Biblical definitions to the symbols employed in this great prophecy, we can unravel its mysteries.

The core symbols are beasts, heads, horns, sea, dragon, and earth. A beast represents a king or a kingdom according to Daniel 7:17. The two beasts of Revelation 13 thus represent two kingdoms or political powers that dominate world events in the last days.

The first beast arose out of the sea. Revelation 17:15 tells us that the sea represents “peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” Therefore the first beast arose from nations (inhabited territory). In contrast, the second beast arises out of the earth, which represents the opposite of nations, multitudes, and kingdoms. Therefore, the second beast must arise in areas of the world where nations, multitudes, and kings were not established (uninhabited territory).

The first beast of Revelation 13 has seven heads and ten horns—and the same attributes as the little horn of Daniel 7.

There Is No Light

There Is No Light

 

Vassula Rydén claims she has seen the light. The Greek Orthodox mystic says she has been given visions by God of the afterlife. Her claim to be divinely inspired includes a remarkable journey into the supernatural world. Are her experiences legitimate? How do you determine whether someone’s “dreams from God” really are from the Lord?

Rydén’s book, Heaven Is Real, But So Is Hell, supposedly takes you into the supernatural world, where she says she has encountered the forces of good and evil. Rydén believes God has given her special messages that answer questions people have been asking for thousands of years. Her experience in receiving inspiration came to her several years ago:

“Rydén is known for her writings entitled ‘True Life in God,’ a compilation of nearly 2000 messages she claims to have received from God. At her home in Bangladesh on November 1, 1985, while writing a grocery list, she claims to have suddenly experienced a light electrical feeling in her right hand and an invisible presence. She says that, led by the presence, she ‘permitted her hand to be guided,’ and wrote, ‘I am your guardian Angel and my name is Daniel.’ Rydén believes she has been called to transmit such messages to the world. Rydén has written messages believed by her followers to have been prophetic.” [1]

How can we know if Rydén’s visions are from God? Doesn’t the Bible speak of heaven and hell? Didn’t the Lord speak through prophets in Scripture? Without a doubt (see Amos 3:7). But anyone can claim to have dreams and say that God has a message for the world. That is why we turn to the Bible to test the prophets. Let’s consider what the Bible says about people who claim to be genuinely speaking for God.

The Scriptures are very clear about false prophets. It encourages, “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world” (1 John 4:1). More than once Jesus warned that “many false prophets will rise up and deceive many” (Matthew 24:11).

True prophets lead people to obey God (Deuteronomy 13:1–4). The fruits of a prophet’s life glorify God (Matthew 7:15, 16). Unless their prophecies are conditional, their messages always come to pass (Jeremiah 28:8, 9). Daniel’s example shows that while a prophet is in vision, he or she doesn’t breathe (Daniel 10:17). Genuine prophets place an emphasis on Jesus Christ (1 John 4:1–3). If a prophet disobeys the Lord, the vision is taken from them (Ezekiel 7:26).

One of the clearest tests is to compare the messages of a prophet with Scripture. “To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them” (Isaiah 8:20). Many examples can be cited that would question Rydén’s claim to be a genuine prophet (see here), but her supposed vision of hell simply does not square with Scripture. The Bible does not describe a burning “underworld” with a devil in control.

According to Scripture, hell is not some lava burning spot in the center of the earth. The Bible teaches that the destruction of the wicked comes at the end of time (see 2 Peter 2:4). The fires of hell actually come from heaven, not from the core of our planet. Scaring people with a distorted picture of a God who delights in torturing sinners for eternity is one of Satan’s primary tools to completely dismiss the Bible all together.

Don’t be led astray by someone who says, “I have a message from God.” If that vision is contradictory to the Bible, we can be sure “there is not light” in them.

Are The Dead Really Dead?

Death just might be one of the most misunderstood subjects today. To many it is enshrouded in mystery and evokes dreaded feelings of fear, uncertainty, and even hopelessness. Others believe that their deceased loved ones are not dead at all, but instead live with them or in other realms! Still others are confused about the relationship between the body, spirit, and soul. But does it really matte… 

Is The Devil In Charge Of Hell?

 Lesson #11
Well? Does God really keep the devil on His payroll – is he the chief superintendent of hell measuring out the punishment of the lost? Nearly the entire world holds a very unbiblical view about hell, and you owe it to yourself to know what the Bible really says about it. Don’t be fooled, because what you think about hell certainly affects what you think about God’s character! Take a few moments … 


Paganism and Catholicism

Author: Professor Walter J. Veith, PhD

Summary: Many Roman Catholic practices are not based on Scripture or even on the life of Christ, but rather on ancient pagan doctrines.

 

 
This article is part of a series. We recommend that you first read: Identifying the Antichrist.

The Catholic Church makes tradition above or equal to Scripture, but in actuality many of its traditions actually stem from pagan sun worship. Its teachings, beliefs and practices come from Mithraism—a form of paganism that existed in Babylonian times.

These pagan practices are symbols of apostasy against God. Of this, the Twentieth Century Encyclopedia of Catholicism says the following:

The missionary history of the [Catholic] Church clearly shows her adaptability to all races, all continents, all nations. In her liturgy and her art, in her tradition and the forming of her doctrine, naturally enough she includes Jewish elements, but also elements that are of pagan origin. In certain respects, she has copied her organization from that of the Roman Empire, has preserved and made fruitful the philosophical intuitions of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, borrowed from both Barbarians and the Byzantine Roman Empire—but always remains herself, thoroughly digesting all elements drawn from external sources…In her laws, her ceremonies, her festivals and her devotions, she makes use of local customs after purifying them and “baptizing” them.

In the Antichrist Identified section, we discussed how the four beasts of Daniel 7, representing the four successive world powers, took the religious rites and ceremonies from each preceding kingdom as it fell, so that Babylonian traditions continued through the ages. Rome, the final kingdom, still clings to these pagan traditions today.

The Papacy claims that its system of worship has been handed down through tradition. They are absolutely correct. But these are not the teachings of Jesus, but rather the traditions of Babylon.

Roman Catholic doctrines such as infant baptism, sprinkling during baptism, teachings on death and immortality, tonsured and celibate priests with power over the dead, prayers to the dead and to relics,repetitive prayers with the use of beads, doctrines on forgiveness of sins, teachings on hell, the mass, andSunday worship are doctrines actually derived directly from ancient Babylon, not the Bible.

When Constantine married paganism and Christianity, the door was opened for false doctrines to creep into the early Christian Church, and they were gradually introduced into the system. The Church became divided into the Catholic Church who accepted the pagan doctrines, and the true Christian Church who resisted Constantine’s indoctrination.

Like the successive strata of the earth covering one another, so layer after layer of forgeries and fabrications was piled up in the Church.i

The church historian Philip Schaff says, “No church or sect in Christendom ever sank so low as the Latin church in the tenth century.”ii

Many of Rome’s documents used to validate its authority and origin have been established as fakes. These unusable sources include The Donation of Constantine, which claim to establish the papal domain and jurisdiction, and The Decretals of Isidore, which were touted as establishing pontifical supremacy. According to J. A. Wylie’s book The History of Protestantism, the Greeks reproachfully named the fledgling Roman Church as “the native home of inventions and falsifications of documents.”iii These forgeries, nevertheless, succeeded in establishing Catholic doctrines.

The Church needs leaders, and Scripture is clear about the nature of godly leadership. Unfortunately, Catholicism has chosen pagan practices over Biblical truth when it comes to the priesthood.

On a dark, stormy, night, when the waves rolled like mountains, and not a star was to be seen, a boat, rocking and plunging, neared the Cleveland harbor. “Are you sure this is Cleveland?” asked the captain, seeing only one light from the lighthouse. “Quite sure, Sir,” replied the pilot. “Where are the lower lights?” “Gone out, Sir.” “Can you make the harbor?” “We must, or perish, Sir!” And with a strong hand and a brave heart, the old pilot turned the wheel. But alas, in the darkness he missed the channel, and with a crash upon the rocks the boat was shivered, and many a life lost in a watery grave. Brethren, the Master will take care of the great lighthouse; Let Us Keep the Lower Lights Burning!
