End Time Apostasy with Roman Catholicism – Part 2
Roman Catholicism and the Jesuit Pope Francis
By Thomas Taylor
The Deception of the Masses
People are seeking after God but instead they are hearing a voice that is not the Lord’s. It is a foreign voice…the voice of another shepherd. Yet they do not know that this foreign voice is not of God. It is a lying voice that deceives the masses. Pope Francis is a false shepherd. He does not represent God. Even many within Catholicism do not consider him a valid Pope because he espouses a New Order (Novus Ordo).
One of Pope Francis’ goals is to gather the masses of those that call themselves Christian under his wing. That means Lutherans, Episcopal, Orthodox, Pentecostal, Baptist, Methodist, Latter Day Saints…all of them. They are to all to become Roman Catholic. This IS the one-world religion prophesied in Revelation 17:1 – 7, 18 and Revelation chapter 18. He is even deceiving the true born-again Christians within the Roman Catholic church.
The pope met with more than 50,000 Catholic charismatics in Rome last month, admitting he was not always comfortable with the way they prayed. Still, he knelt on stage as they prayed for him and spoke in tongues. “Where does division come from? The devil!” Francis told them. “Division comes from the devil. Flee from internal struggles, please!” – Charismanews.com
If they speak in tongues, they are truly born again, even if they are within the Catholic church. Therefore, the Pope is deceiving many true believers in Jesus to draw them into his one-world religion. We need to pray for true born-again believers both within and without the Roman Catholic church that God would open their eyes to see what is happening!
Matthew 24:5 For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray.
This includes the present and preceding Popes who claim to be the vicars of Christ – the vicarious replacement of Jesus Christ Himself on earth. They are deceivers. Many have been led astray. Catholics are generally good people that are seeking God but they have been deceived by Mystery Babylon. Then the Bible says:
Matthew 24:11 And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray.
Many false prophets (priests, bishops, pastors, and preachers), both Catholic and Protestant, are presently leading God’s people away into uniting all under Pope Francis and his one-world religion. Jesus warned us:
Matthew 24:23-24 Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. (24) For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.
Pope Francis is deceiving even the very elect of God. He will be hailed as the great reconciler of Catholicism and Protestantism, supposedly uniting the Church. But there is to be no unification of darkness with light. God says to come out from among them and be separate, be holy, and be clean from idolatry, which Roman Catholicism is steeped in. They pray to saints and bow down and worship their statues but the Bible is clear that is sin (Exodus 20:4, 5). That is idolatry. They are worshiping devils when they do so. In Revelation 18:4, God implores true born-again believers to, “Come out of her, My people!” It is Roman Catholicism that is described well in Revelation chapter 18. The following is how the Bible describes the Roman Catholic church:
Revelation 17:1, 4, 5 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters… And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
It is the Roman Catholic church that adorns themselves in purple and scarlet. It is the Roman Catholic church that adorns themselves in all kinds of finery, precious stones, and gold. It is the Roman Catholic church that holds a golden cup, during eucharist, that they actually believe saves them instead of faith in Jesus alone. Read Revelation chapter 18 to see a perfect description of the Roman Catholic church as well, but here is a portion to consider:
Revelation 18:23 and the light of a lamp will shine in you no more, and the voice of bridegroom and bride will be heard in you no more, for your merchants were the great ones of the earth, and all nations were deceived by your sorcery.
Notice all nations were deceived by her sorcery. Catholicism is the perfect one-world false religion, as opposed to Islam that some have speculated to be the one-world religion. Islam does not operate in sorcery, however Catholicism openly operates in sorcery and no one even knows that it is sorcery.
Sorcery is defined, by the Meriam-Webster Dictionary, as, “the use of magical powers that are obtained through evil spirits.” If you know the history of Catholicism, you would know it originally mixed pagan sun worship with Christianity. It simply merged Christianity with heathen beliefs. Instead of forsaking the pagan gods the Romans worshiped, they simply kept all the statues of the pagan idols, and changed their names to Mary, St. Peter, St Paul, etc…, then kept right on worshiping them. Notice that all of their statues and images still have a sun above the heads of the “saints”. Roman Catholicism is sun worship for those initiated into its real meaning (esoteric), but it is declared as saint adoration to the ignorant masses of Catholics (exoteric). Pay attention to how much the sun is behind everything they worship. Almost everything they have is rife with images of the sun such as the monstrance. When one worships a statue, or prays to a statue or dead “saint”, they are communicating with the demons unwittingly. It is called necromancy which is strictly forbidden in Scripture (Deuteronomy 18:10 – 12). Why? Because it opens a way, an invitation, for demons to come and operate in the earth.
The Jesuit Pope
Jesuits are a special order of Catholics created by Ignatius of Loyola to defend the Roman Catholic church. They were created as the Society of Jesus on April 19, 1541. They held absolute loyalty to the Pope, even to the point of death. At the time of the Jesuit’s founding, people were leaving the Roman Catholic church to join the Protestant Reformation by the hundreds of thousands. The Jesuits existed to overthrow the Protestants that disagreed with the Roman Catholic church doctrines. They often acted as a militia of spies to infiltrate those that oppose Roman Catholic doctrine, pretending to be one of them and even preach their doctrines, just to gain advantage. Ultimately, they want to convert everyone back to Roman Catholicism. They will use violence, sedition, and start wars to obtain their means. They excel in the practice of disinformation – a spy tactic used to confuse or redirect your enemy. I suspect many of the false doctrines we find in the Protestant Church could be traced back to disinformation, but that would be hard to prove conclusively.
Take a look at the Jesuit vow, if you do not believe me. Here is only a portion in case you do not want to read the whole vow:
On either side stands a monk, one of whom holds a banner of yellow and white, which are the Papal colours, and the other a black banner with a dagger and red cross above a skull and crossbones, with the word INRI, and below them the words IUSTUM NECAR REGES IMPIUS. The meaning of which is: It is just to exterminate or annihilate impious or heretical Kings, Governments, or Rulers…
My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler: among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to be a spy even among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man. Among the Reformers, to be a Reformer; among the Huguenots, to be a Huguenot; among the Calvinists, to be a Calvinist; among other Protestants, generally to be a Protestant; and obtaining their confidence, to seek even to preach from their pulpits, and to denounce with all the vehemence in your nature our Holy Religion and the Pope; and even to descend so low as to become a Jew among Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information for the benefit of your Order as a faithful soldier of the Pope. You have been taught to plant insidiously the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and to incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the arts and the sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace; to take sides with the combatants and to act secretly with your brother Jesuit, who might be engaged on the other side, but openly opposed to that with which you might be connected, only that the Church might be the gainer in the end, in the conditions fixed in the treaties for peace and that the end justifies the means. You have been taught your duty as a spy, to gather all statistics, facts and information in your power from every source; to ingratiate yourself into the confidence of the family circle of Protestants and heretics of every class and character, as well as that of the merchant, the banker, the lawyer, among the schools and universities, in parliaments and legislatures, and the judiciaries and councils of state, and to be all things to all men, for the Pope’s sake, whose servants we are unto death. You have received all your instructions heretofore as a novice, a neophyte, and have served as co-adjurer, confessor and priest, but you have not yet been invested with all that is necessary to command in the Army of Loyola in the service of the Pope. You must serve the proper time as the instrument and executioner as directed by your superiors; for none can command here who has not consecrated his labours with the blood of the heretic; for “without the shedding of blood no man can be saved”. Therefore, to fit yourself for your work and make your own salvation sure, you will, in addition to your former oath of obedience to your order and allegiance to the Pope…
If you think that is bad, it gets worse. Read the whole vow when you get a chance! This tells us the heart of the Jesuit Pope – he does not want unity with Protestantism; he wants it completely eradicated by means of swallowing it back up into Roman Catholicism. I believe if that does not work, he will use any means necessary to eliminate his enemies, including violence, but not outwardly. It will be secretly at first, but eventually he could be the one to implement the Mark of the Beast as Revelation 13:16 -18 describes.
He despises anyone that does not follow him as the vicar of Christ – the Holy Father, which is another name for God. He thinks he is God! That sounds eerily similar to another one that will show up on the scene in the end days to proclaim he is God in the temple…the one we know as antichrist (2 Thessalonians 2:4). I do not believe the Pope is the antichrist. I believe the Pope of the end time will be the false prophet – the visible forerunner to the antichrist, like John the Baptist was a forerunner to Jesus. So that means not far behind Pope Francis, if he is the false prophet, is the antichrist who I believe will remain hidden until the end. However, the publicly visible personage of the seven-headed beast is the false prophet.
