From the beginning I want to clarify that this blog is not anti-Roman Catholic, we love Catholic people, we are anti-sin and anti-Satan. I was a devout Catholic for 25 years, studied from elementary through high school in a Catholic school. I have many family members and friends that are Catholics. When I was a baby Christian I married a Catholic, who later also got saved, we went to prayer meetings with Catholics, even went with relatives to their Catholic churches on special occasions and we believed we all could be the same body of Christ & that the Catholic Church just needed to make some small changes, etc. But it wasn’t until we study the Bible & also went deeper into Catholic doctrine, that we understood why they didn’t change or experienced any conviction of sins, and we also could understood what the real problem was. But we love Catholics and because we do, we warn them. I’m convinced that many Catholics will come to the Lord Jesus Christ in these last days, but when they do, eventually they will leave behind that corrupted system.
When we truly want to follow Christ and want to do what God says in His Word, then we have to put aside the beliefs and practices of the Roman Catholic Church or any other denomination, that are rooted in their own traditions or man-made doctrines, rather than in the true Word of God. How can we call ourselves Christians if we don’t follow Christ or His Word? but rather follow our own ideas or the teachings of men? (Mormons follow the teachings of Joseph Smith, Jehovah’s Witnesses follow teachings of Charles Russell & their Governing body, Moravians follow Masonic count Zinzendorf, Calvinists follow Calvin, etc. See the problem? ). Our advise… do not follow men but the son of God, invite Jesus Christ into your life, accept Him as your Lord & Saviour, and study His Word.
This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men. Mark 7:6-7
The word Antichrist means = One who opposes Christ, or who puts himself in the place of Christ, a false Christ.
In the Scriptures we find 2 main concepts of Antichrist:
1 / A spirit – That operates in false believers, heretics, etc. who oppose Jesus Christ Divinity, His teachings, etc. (1 John 2: 22-23, 2 Jn.1:7) and of these kind there are many in the world. But also there are some men who usurp Christ’s place and who call themselves saviors, messiahs, etc. So they operate under the influence of this spirit of antichrist.
2 / A man – The bible also speaks of a particular man coming, the man of sin, the son of perdition, that by Satan’s works at the end of times, will make great signs and that will oppose Jesus Christ teachings and put himself in Christ’s place, deceiving many.
Recall back in the post, Snake on the pole, we talked about how the people of Israel worshiped the serpent that Moses made? The snake was destroyed by king Hezekiah (2 Kings 18:3-4) but unfortunately it didn’t end there, and the worship to the snake still continues to this very day?
In this post we’ll try to show you a glimpse of that. In the past months of May-July, there was an art exhibition in New York at Rockefeller Center: ‘Uraeus‘ (Sacred Serpent) by Kabbalist (1) artist Anselm Kiefer:
Pope Francis and Dr Ahmed Al Tayeb, Grand Imam of Al Azhar (highest seat of learning in Sunni Islam), signing a historic ‘Fraternity’ agreement in Abu Dhabi
Pope Francis signed a ‘Peace document’, were the word “God” is used simultaneously to identify Allah and the God of Christianity, but makes no reference any time to Jesus Christ (the only way to the Father, John 14:6) or the Bible. This is not surprising since for him the meaning of being a Christian isn’t to belong to Christ, but to belong to the ‘Mother Church’, that is the Catholic Church: “Believing” is an ecclesial act. The Church’s faith precedes, engenders, supports and nourishes our faith. The Church is the mother of all believers. “No one can have God as Father who does not have the Church as Mother” Catechism of the Catholic Church #181. That’s his gospel, to call people to Catholicism or Mother Church, NOT to Christ. Please also check video, were he says having a direct, personal relationship with Jesus is dangerous & harmful!
