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.”

The Gathering Continues

Revelation 16:13-16:  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.  For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.  Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.  And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

Satan-traditional-arms.svgThis prophecy, made 2000 years ago, foresaw a time when Antichrist would attempt to gather the whole world under his control against the Lord Jesus Christ.  He would use demonic powers to help him persuade the kings of the earth and the whole world to follow him.  He would gather together those loyal to the Papacy, Islam, Apostate Protestantism, and all other non-Christian religions.  They would help him try to eliminate biblical Christianity once and for all in their last great opposition against Almighty God and His followers.  And they are gathering in that opposition today.

Said the current pope this past March: “All of us together, Muslims, Hindus, Catholics, Copts, Evangelical [Protestants] brothers and sisters — children of the same God — we want to live in peace, integrated.”

And more recently we read that this past May, “Pope Francis embraced the grand imam of Cairo’s Al-Azhar Mosque at the Vatican on Monday in a historic encounter both sides hope will lead to greater understanding and dialogue between the two faiths.” And “A statement quoted Tayeb as telling Francis: “We need to take a joint stance, hand in hand, to bring happiness to humanity. Divine religions were revealed to make people happy, not to cause them hardship.””

It’s not just religious leaders yoking with the Pope.  High-level politicians from around the world are doing the same thing.  One such politician is presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, who stated regarding a recent visit with the Pope that “This is an invitation from the Vatican, from a pope that I have enormous respect for in term of the level of consciousness that he’s raising on the need to have morality in our economy.”  (Isn’t it interesting how socialists can invoke religion whenever it suits their purposes?).

From a human perspective, it seems like nothing can stop this union.  But as Christians, we have another perspective, a heavenly perspective that tells us that this union will fail just like every other rebellion against God.  Francis Nigel Lee wrote that this would happen sometime before the Papacy achieved total one-world rule:

“It should be noted that all such Papal efforts will not prevail!
For, some time before the Vatican has achieved her objective of ruling the entire World (as Nimrod of old tried to do in Ancient Babylon) God will pour out the seventh and last vial of His wrath on the Great City and on the cities of the Nations.” [“John’s Revelation Unveiled” page 219]

A great international religious and political shake-up is coming.  Hold fast, dear ones, and watch and keep your garments.  The liberation of the nations will come in the not too distant future.

Sanders for the Pope!

The following quote is from Bernie Sanders’ campaign page on income and wealth inequality:

“Just as the commandment ‘Thou shalt not kill’ sets a clear limit in order to safeguard the value of human life, today we also have to say ‘thou shalt not’ to an economy of exclusion and inequality. Such an economy kills. How can it be that it is not a news item when an elderly homeless person dies of exposure, but it is news when the stock market loses two points?” – Pope Francis

Funny how atheists and leftists can invoke religion whenever it suits them but no one else is allowed to!

The Catholic Basis for a One World Government

World Government flag

Here are some quotes from an article contrasting the Catholic adoption of Aquinas with the Protestant adoption of Augustine.

Aquinas leads to attempts at a one world government:

Maritain has contended that world government “…perfectly squares with the basic principles of Thomas Aquinas’ political philosophy.”[11]

~11. Jacques Maritain, Man and the State (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1951), p. 197. For the relevant works of Adler and Hutchins, see Mortimer Adler, How to Think About War and Peace (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1944); Robert M. Hutchins, St. Thomas and the World State (Milwaukee: Marquette University Press, 1949).

Reaching back through Aquinas to Aristotle, Maritain agreed with Hutchins and Adler that the pivotal point is Aristotle’s notion of the “perfect” state being based upon “self-sufficiency.” In Aristotle’s day that meant the city state, while in the modern era, argues Maritain, this means world government because with the interrelatedness of earthly life only a world state would meet the Aristotelian test of “self- sufficiency.”[12]

~12. Maritain, Man and the State, p. 197. For a similar rationale also see, Hutchins, op. cit., passim.

“…the Catholic tradition…points clearly toward the necessity of world government….Catholics have, then, always been virtually for world government.’’[15]

~15. Ibid., p. 39. [referring to 14. Hutchins, op. cit., pp. 41-42.]

“According to the mind of St. Thomas, only the world state can now be the perfect community.”[16]

~16. lbid., p. 44. [referring to 14. Hutchins, op. cit., pp. 41-42.]

What will this entail for the West?

Maritain argued there is needed a “kind of moral heroism” on the part of “occidental nations,” for there will have to be “…a serious lowering of…standards of life, in order to provide people on the other side…with an equivalent raising of their standards of life.”[13]

~13. Maritain, Man and the State, p. 208.

What is the antidote to utopian attempts at a one world government? Augustine!:

Whether reflected in the fanatical forms of fascism and communism or the more genteel forms of contemporary liberalism, St. Augustine is unsurpassed as an antidote to this powerful force. Throughout his extensive writings, which include some three hundred and fifty treatises, five hundred sermons, and two hundred extant letters, Augustine reflects the fundamental Judaic-Christian view which teaches us there are moral absolutes even though they may be dimly perceived by finite, fallible man. It instructs us that man is not the center and measure of all things, but rather God is. In contrast to his Creator, man is, in addition to being finite and fallible, characterized by a nature that has its “evil” side. Because of these limitations of man there will always be imperfections in the world regardless of the structure of human institutions. Out of this perspective springs the realization that men will never be as gods, and that some tragedy is inherent in the human condition. Armed with such realism, there is an acceptance of what Miguel de Unamuno called “the tragic sense of life.” Man cannot wholly eliminate the storms and vicissitudes of this earthly life as the utopians would do. At best he can alter a portion of them, through faith endure the balance, and by the act of endurance ultimately prevail. To the utopian mind this is all baffling and perhaps even humorous. But to those who accept this perspective, it is “realistic” and “relevant,” for it explains and accounts for more of the human condition than shallow secularism does.

The Pope of Rome in Three African Countries 2015: Why Now?

Via Shaun Willcock at Bible Based Ministries:

Why did Francis I, the pope of Rome, travel to three African countries (Kenya, Uganda and the Central African Republic) in November 2015?

Every papal trip, it doesn’t matter where in the world it is, has a definite purpose, and usually more than one.  Neither the pope, nor anyone else in the Vatican, wakes up one morning and says, “Let’s go to X, Y or Z – it’ll be fun.”  Nothing is by coincidence, nor merely on a whim.  Every single Papal destination is carefully and purposefully selected.  There are reasons for every single trip.  And it was no different with Francis’ three-nation trip to Africa in November 2015.

Reasons for the Trip

The first reason for his visit: the rapid spread of Islam in Africa, including in places where African Roman Catholicism is strong, and even growing.  The Vatican’s interfaith movement, for all its talk about “the need for religions to live in harmony” and “mutual respect” and all the rest, has only one true long-term objective: the neutralising and eventual elimination of all other religions.  Francis well knows that the world’s two largest and most powerful religions are clashing across the world – and as he fervently believes that Roman Catholicism must become the world’s dominant (and eventually the world’s only) religion, Islam must be curtailed.  It was time to hype up his vast African flock to draw a line in the sand and resist the spread of Islam.  Time to make them feel proud to be Roman Catholics, and to promote the message that Roman Catholicism must increase, while Islam must decrease.

The second reason for his visit: the rapid spread, in Africa, of western secularism and hedonism.  As the Roman Catholic religion grows in Africa –which it is doing in leaps and bounds – it is important for the Vatican to curtail the increasing influence of western secular “values”, including the west’s promotion of homosexuality and anti-religion.  But note carefully: the Vatican is a chamaeleon, as is Francis himself.  The colours will change according to the audience.  In America, Francis toned down his anti-homosexual stance, so as not to offend the millions in the west who are increasingly accepting homosexuality as a valid lifestyle.  But in Africa, where culturally most Africans still strongly oppose homosexuality, Francis could proclaim a far stronger pro-family (and thus indirectly anti-homosexuality) message.

The third reason for his visit: to preach his favourite Socialist messages of Socialism and radical environmentalism, both of which are aimed at increasing Papal power.  “Business Day focussed on how the papal visit is timely in a push for the sustainable use of resources, and how the Pope had criticised trickle-down economics in defence of the world’s poor.  The paper said that Francis is ‘an advocate of radical change in the global economic order.’”[1] He certainly is, as I have shown in various articles.[2]

And the fourth reason for the visit: to strengthen African Roman Catholicism as it faces challenges from various other quarters.  “These include the clash between traditional customs, like ancestor veneration and church teaching.  Charismatic churches are springing up all over the continent and many Africans (and Catholics) are attracted to the healing power such congregations claim to have.  Polygamy, which is directly at odds with Catholic teaching, is also practiced in parts of Africa…. A number of priests have also left the Church rather then follow the celibate life of the Catholic priesthood.  In a society that places high value on marriage and childbearing, the church’s discipline of celibacy is often questioned in Africa.”[3]
