Watching Pope Francis today I thought this is exactly how people will bow before the Antichrist.
“And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” Revelation 19:10 (KJV)
In the book of Revelation, John is so overcome that he falls at the feet of the prophet Daniel to worship him, but is gently rebuked for his actions. Daniel in glory still remembered quite well the lion’s den he found himself in after he allowed King Nebuchadnezzar to pay homage to him. Not so with the Catholic Pope Francis. While feeding pizza to the homeless today at the Vatican, he allowed other human beings to bow before him, kiss his ring like he was a Mafia don, and beg to be blessed by the childless “holy father”.
Come out of her, my people, saith the Lord:

Look at the looks on the faces of his worshippers, they are overcome with emotion as if they were seeing God. This is blatant idolatry, and watch the Pope as he casually strolls in their midst and laps up their worship like he deserves to receive it. This is exactly how people will bow before the Antichrist. The Pope’s title of “holy father” is stolen from John 17 where we read this is what Jesus called His Father in Heaven
“And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.” John 17:11 (KJV)
It is utter blasphemy for any man who ever lived on this Earth, outside of Jesus Christ, to claim this title and apply it to themselves. The Roman Catholic Church and Vatican City is the Whore of Babylon we read about in Revelation 17 and 18, and its end will be delivered at the end of the time of Jacob’s trouble after the Rapture.
“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.” Revelation 17:4,5 (KJV)
I was enslaved in that Babylonian system for nearly half my life until the day I met Jesus, and received His free gift of salvation through His shed blood on the cross. Click here if you would like to be set free, too.
