You know what I find really frustrating? Its when you know something really important and nobody cares, or takes you seriously!
As we watch the world situation, many are wringing their hands in despair, and truly I am not happy with what I am seeing, but what we are seeing is an unfolding of the End Times in exactly the way I laid it out in The Spirit of Prophecy!
As I said in that book, the pope is a decoy, which Satan has set-up for the express purpose of destroying. Just because the popes have been around for some 18 centuries it does not mean that Satan has any love for the men who have held this office. They are just tools to him, to be discarded when he is finished with them.
When the last pope, Benedict, retired, and was replaced by Francis, I knew that Catholics just might use this fact as an opportunity to disown this pope, should he be involved in something distasteful. I have been stating this on Facebook for a couple of years now.
In fact I have seen many posts by many Christians and Prophecy Ministries saying that they believe the pope is the false prophet of the book of Revelation.
In fact David Bay of Cutting Edge ministries said the very same thing back when John Paul 2 was pope. In fact he said that he had been snuck into a meeting of New Agers, and they had told him that “the pope is a proper receptor to the Christ”, meaning the Antichrist.
Mr. Bay thought that he had not been recognized, and maybe the people in that meeting did not recognize him, but I can assure you that their “spirit guides” knew exactly who he was. Accordingly that statement was directed specifically at David Bay and his readers, by none other than Satan’s angels!
Satan isn’t stupid, and we ought not to think he is. He is the father of lies, and you can be sure that if he says anything that sounds like the truth, it has a twist and is meant to deceive!
So, imagine my surprise this week when a Facebook friend, a Catholic herself, posted the following? Well, I wasn’t really surprised, only surprised at how quickly it is happening!
Here is a screen shot of the statement from Facebook;
My first argument with her is that the bible does not actually say that the final pope would be the false prophet. The bible is silent on popes, except to say;
“They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.” John 16:2
For many hundreds of years the popes killed Jesus’ followers. The true followers of Jesus Christ were the ones put to death, not those doing the killing!
The bible does indeed speak of a final false prophet, but it does not state that he will be a pope. What it does say is that he is from “the earth” (Revelation 13:17). The first beast, the Antichrist, is from “the sea”.
The symbolism is hard to miss; the sea is a reference to “the sea of humanity, the Gentile nations”. The contrast indicates that the second beast, the false prophet, does not come from the sea of humanity, but from the “land” of Israel. The Antichrist will be a Gentile from an Arab nation, but the false prophet will be from Israel. Their goal will be to unite humanity in rebellion against God!
No, the final pope is a decoy whose destruction will lead the world to believe the Tribulation is over. It is the destruction of a pope, and a political leader, in the city of Rome, which will lead many allegorists to believe that they have been witness to Armageddon! Whether this pope will be Francis or his successor, I can’t say, but rest assured Satan has a purpose in destroying his puppets!
Rome, however, is a city of seven hills. Hills are not as significant as mountains, and it is not Rome to which the Scriptures point! Rome is a side-issue, and a decoy!
And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. Revelation17:9
The Scriptures are actually referring to Babylon, Iraq.
I can hear you say, “But Babylon is on a flat plain, and has no mountains!” And I agree. Babylon does not have any physical mountains. I believe the mountains to which this Scripture point are to allegorical mountains.
After Rome is destroyed, during the Gog/Magog war, the remaining Catholics will have to relocate their headquarters; They will choose Babylon, Iraq, and they will partner there with a group you may have heard of, The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR).
This is where the seven mountains of Revelation17:9 come from; There is a teaching among the NAR that they have to take dominion over the “seven mountains” of society! They call it “the seven mountain mandate”. They have divided up society into seven mountains, or seven spheres, and claim that they need to take dominion over each one.
These seven mountains are family, Church/religion, education, media, arts and entertainment, economy, and government! In other words they are targeting every aspect of society. These people will succeed for a time, and the world will come under their thumb, as they put the Antichrist on the throne! Shortly after that, around the mid-point in the Tribulation, he will betray their trust, and destroy them, but for several years prior they will have unprecedented influence all over the world!
Lance Wallnau explains the Seven Mountain Mandate;
In the past Christians would have avoided being associated with such a term, but this is an indication of the arrogance, and ignorance, of this group.
As an aside, I should warn you that in the current American elections, Donald Trump is receiving a lot of support from many NAR leaders, however Senator Ted Cruz also comes from a family associated with the same group! On the other side, Sanders and Clinton are Marxists, and unethical liars to boot! The future of the USA certainly looks very bleak!
I would not be surprised if the USA eventually ends up with a NAR president, and if so, I would expect that they will be involved in a Catholic Church/NAR move to Babylon, perhaps by its modern name Al-Hillah. I expect this assistance will come around the time of the end of the Gog and Magog war, long after ISIS disappears from the scene.
We should not be surprised if some Catholics are outing the pope as an imposter today. They are being set-up as “prophets” who will ultimately lead their church into the kingdom of the Antichrist! By rejecting someone as the false prophet, and his associate as the Antichrist, they are opening themselves up to accept the real thing!
But this all starts with false prophets setting up their followers. And it is not only occurring in the Catholic Church, but all Christian denominations are coming under the influence of these false teachers.
The kingdom of both the Roman Church, and the New Apostolic Reformation is of this world. They intend to take over the world, and then claim they will hand it to Jesus Christ. In other words He needs them to take over the world for Him; He can’t do it on His own! That Jesus is not the Jesus of the bible!
Here is what Jesus said;
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 18:36
Jesus’ kingdom is not from here. Those who attempt to build a kingdom of God on earth will actually hasten the coming of the Antichrist! The Seven Mountain Mandate is a form of Christian Dominionism and is actually a doctrine of devils, and a tool of Satan!
There is another city of seven literal mountains, which is the home town of the Antichrist, and appears in Revelation 18, but the Babylon of Revelation 17 is Babylon, and its mountains are artificial.
