Catholic Church: New Priests Will be Expected to Preach Global Warming

Climate of fear in Vatican is very real.  Just one quote:

In his editorial in the upcoming December issue of LifeSite’s Faithful Insight magazine, John-Henry Westen relates more of what we discovered.

“… Catholic universities in Rome are watched and professors’ lectures screened to ensure they fall in line with a liberal interpretation of Amoris Laetitia. Clerics are reported to superiors if they are overheard expressing concerns about Pope Francis. Many are afraid to speak openly, even though in the past they were always very willing. Vatican reporters told us they were warned numerous times not to report on the dubia.”

Rome in the News, December 2016

Some Rome and eschatology-related headlines that recently caught my eye:

The Donald Trump Victory

Shaun Willcock of Bible Based Ministries:

Donald Trump (14235998650) (cropped)Articles sufficient to fill libraries have been written, and will yet be written, by those inside the U.S. and around the world, analysing the victory of Donald Trump over that Jezebel, Hillary Clinton, in the 2016 presidential election, and it is not my intention to write reams about it myself, repeating what so many others have said.  But a few comments are in order, from one who is an outsider looking in, who loves the great land of America.

It was certainly an astounding victory, considering the forces ranged against him.  No question about that.  The entire leftist-dominated media, worldwide, was against him, and attacked him in every possible way.  The pope of Rome has no love for him, especially since he threatened to close the porous U.S.-Mexico border to the tens of thousands of illegal Roman Catholics from Central and South America who are flooding into the U.S., and the pope’s opposition to him meant millions of Roman Catholics were opposed to him as well…

From Antichrist to Brother in Christ

Catholic faith defeating heresies (Karlskirche Vienna)From a 2015 article:

“More than half of evangelical pastors say Pope Francis is their brother in Christ.

More than one-third say they value the pope’s view on theology, and 3 in 10 say he has improved their view of the Catholic Church.

Those are among the findings of a new study of 1,000 Protestant senior pastors, released this week from Nashville-based LifeWay Research…”

Clinton Against Catholics

Hillary Clinton (24634300275)

And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore… (Revelation 17:16)

From an October 12 Breitbart article:

“There needs to be a Catholic Spring, in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality in the Catholic church.”

~Sandy Newman, president of Voices for Progress in a letter to Clinton campaign manager John Podesta

Jesuits and Trump’s Controversial 2005 Comments

Trump & Clinton

Well, this is an interesting take on things:

Douglas Andrew Willinger:

“The incriminating 2005 Verizon Wireless [a company with Jesuit connections as discussed in the article] Access Hollywood audio-video sat in obscurity for over a decade, only to be publicly released in an October 8, 2016 article in The Washington Post, just prior to the 2nd Trump-Clinton debate held in St. Louis, Missouri on October 9, 2016, and within hours of a wiki-leaks public release of Hillary Clinton related emails…

A jesuitical move to shift public voter opinion against Trump, in order to favor what would logically be the Jesuit preferred ticket with one of its very own in the #2 position?”

Speaking in Tongues, Levitating and Vomiting Nails

Spinello Aretino Exorcism of St Benedict

Exorcists are in urgent demand as a result of a sharp rise in people dabbling in Satanism and the occult, experts from the Catholic Church in Italy and the US said.

Speaking in tongues, levitating and vomiting nails may seem far-fetched to most people, but church experts insist there is a need to recruit more priests as exorcists in order to combat sorcery and black magic.

An exorcist has warned of a demon that seeks to attack families and has been encountered in numerous exorcisms carried out by the Catholic Church.

Priest César Truqui, based in Rome, Italy, said the demon, called Asmodeus, was also present in the Old Testament story of Tobias.

All this reminds me of this verse:

Revelation 18:2:  And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

To be clear, every commentary I consult says that this verse is referring to the complete destruction of Babylon.  However, the fact that the RCC is finding an increasing need for exorcism reminded me of the phrase “habitation of devils.”

Gill writes in his Exposition of the Entire Bible,

and is become the habitation of devils; as old Babylon was of satyrs, Isaiah13:21 demons, which appeared in a hairy form, like goats, and the word is rendered devils in Leviticus 17:7 and the inhabitants of Rome now are no other; the pope and his cardinals, the priests, Jesuits, monks, and friars, are the spirits of devils, and their doctrines the doctrines of devils; see Revelation 16:14

And now they claim to be surrounded by devils.   Go figure.
