Pope Francis Accepts Worship After Feeding Pizza To The Homeless At The Vatican

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.

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.

    Great post, Geoffrey. If the pope isn’t the antichrist,it will likely be someone else associated with the vatican. Lower case spellings not by mistake…

  • Lee Rice

    These worshipers of the Pope, obviously have never read the Scriptures. Once they meet Jesus Christ, they will realize their one TRUE FATHER, I pray for them and am sorrowful for these people. My heart breaks that they worship a man. Keep praying for them. They must learn that they can go direct to Jesus Christ with their prayers. Help them See Lord.

  • Lee Rice

    Good Reply Geoffrey.

  • Geoffrey, I have a question for you. I ask in all sincerity as I have a loved one that was raised in the Truth as is found in God’s Holy Word per the KJB. (I believe that the Catholic Church is the ‘Woman riding the Beast’ and an apostate church).
    Since you were within the Catholic Church for so long, can you say with certainty and experience that they, as a fact, Do Not Believe that Jesus Christ, whom I believe was God Incarnate on this earth, is our only means of Salvation through his shed blood on the cross? I hope they at least have that much right. But if this is so, then they would easily be able to see that what the Pope, which is Head of The Whole Body of Believers, is preaching False doctrine. Just praying to Mary is wrong. Back to my question: Do all the catholic churches (parishes) Really intruly Not Teach ‘Jesus Christ as The Only Way of Salvation?’
    I would never be a part of something that in any way deviated from the true word that Christ taught and died for. Can one correctly say that all those that are part of the Catholic Church are LOST? We are all acountable to God Almighty, and he knows the heart.
    I will understand if you do not post this, but if so, please get back to me with your thoughts to my question. Thanks

    • Catholics ABSOLUTELY do not believe that Jesus is the ONLY way…because if they did, they would stop praying to Mary, stop creating and worshipping false “saints”, would throw “rosary beads” in the trash, stop kneeling before a pope, stop confessing sins to a priest and so on and so on. They do all these NON-biblical things BECAUSE Jesus alone in not enough for them. Furthermore, for the Catholic, the Bible is NOT their authority, the writings of the “early church fathers” take precedence over the Bible. Now, can I say that “all Catholics are lost”? No, of course not. But I will say precious few of them get saved. It is the HOLY SPIRIT that shows you how pagan the Babylonian Vatican system really is, and when I got saved and could see for the first time I left that mess and never went back.

  • Lee Rice

    Jan, Great Question. I don’t know about the women on the beast. I have heard two descriptions of her today alone in my studies and watching different people on You tube with the studies. I too would like Geoffrey’s answer on this.

  • Lee Rice

    Geoffrey, I am so very happy that you were able to come out of the Catholic church. Praise God for His Faithfulness.

    The correct reference is Revelation 19:10 . I am searching and cannot find any reference to Daniel there. Where is Daniel mentioned in Revelation?

  • Mary

    I have never heard that it was Daniel that John was talking to in Revelation 19:10, where do you get that from?

    The scripture chapter/verse is actually Rev 19:10 and not 18:10 as you said. Also, John is talking to the prophet Daniel??? That just came out of your head for some unknown reason. If you imagine yourself to be a teacher then you need to be self correcting first.

  • Larry/vietnamvet1971

    YEP, the pope is a better Idol than a dead statue of mary.

    “These worshipers of the Pope”

    We Catholics do not believe that the Pope is god.

    “obviously have never read the Scriptures.”

    I read and study the Scriptures and I have not found anything that the Catholic Church teaches that contradicts the Scripture nor vice versa.

    “Once they meet Jesus Christ, they will realize their one TRUE FATHER”

    We meet Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, through Scripture reading, through prayer. Our true Father is God the Father in Heaven.

  • What you are telling your readers is not true. Here is what the Catechism says,
    160 To be human, “man’s response to God by faith must be free, and… therefore nobody is to be forced to embrace the faith against his will. the act of faith is of its very nature a free act.”39 “God calls men to serve him in spirit and in truth. Consequently they are bound to him in conscience, but not coerced. . . This fact received its fullest manifestation in Christ Jesus.”40 Indeed, Christ invited people to faith and conversion, but never coerced them. “For he bore witness to the truth but refused to use force to impose it on those who spoke against it. His kingdom… grows by the love with which Christ, lifted up on the cross, draws men to himself.”41

    The necessity of faith

    161 Believing in Jesus Christ and in the One who sent him for our salvation is necessary for obtaining that salvation.42 “Since “without faith it is impossible to please (God) ” and to attain to the fellowship of his sons, therefore without faith no one has ever attained justification, nor will anyone obtain eternal life ‘But he who endures to the end.'”]

    @ Jan, and any, Yes it’s a false church and doctrines and flee from such but there might be a few folks (I know of one) who do not pray to mary nor finger the beads nor ask some guy for forgiveness nor are inter-faithers nor…

    so why are they even catholics, or better, why do they insist on remaining tied to that church? Since they believe and act as a biblical christian and not like that church would teach?
    Tradition for one…shiny white robes and high vaulted ceilings..stuff, stuff and traditions (and what is stuff and traditions, things of the world..?), at least that’s what the one say’s. This person I know does not suppose they are saved by any works they do either.

    But a question that they cannot/will not answer and hate being asked is that by remaining tied to a cult are they lending credence to it? If others see them as catholic and think..then it must be ok..and run into the cult and adopt praying to mary and salvation by works and the whole thing, are these not also responsible for others running into a cult? Shouldn’t one come out of a cult come away entirely so there’s no mistaking and no lending credence to it? Put away all semblance of evil? And so that others are not misled too?
    A weighty question for them few catholic non catholic.

    If I’m not an inter-faither (inter-faither=say’s/teaches that there are many paths to the Father, liars) but I shoulder up and tie up to those who are inter-faithers, do I by doing that lend my approval to inter-faithism? as example.
    Would God deem it so? and that’s the important issue.
    By saddling up along side a cult would I then be a part of that cult and lend credence/approval to that cult?

    Also most catholics do not research their own religion, most don’t know what inter-faithism is and how it’s a denial of Christ, and again by remaining saddled up to that church are they lending approval to inter-faithism and a salvation by works religion?
    I wonder if many don’t look at the many things because doing so they know they’d have to leave that church.

    also, with inter-faithism it’s ‘inter’…many religions and many faux christian churches are inter-faith, look into it and flee if yours is, it’s not just a catholic thing only.

  • Bill James

    The Scripture is clear – And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. ( Matt. 23:9). Yet the Catholic Church has done it for centuries.

    Incidentally Geoffrey, I have read and studied the Rev. 19:10 passage (you called it 18:10) many times but never concluded that John was speaking to Daniel when he asked John not to fall at his feet.

    By the way, I think it is most probable that Rev. 17 speaks of Rome and Rev. 18 speaks of NYC because it is the world’s financial center and it is close to deep water so the merchants can watch it burn in one hour (vs. 17-19). Every 3rd world country must have an office in NYC if they want to be involved in international trade. We got our first taste of this destruction on 9/11.

  • Geoffrey, you incorrectly quoted this verse here as being from Rev.18:10, “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.”
    It is actually Revelation 19:10.
    But more importantly, Who is the speaker? The general and simplest opinion is that it is the angel mentioned in Revelation 17:1
    So can you (or someone else) please clarify for us how it is one would come to believe that this is Daniel speaking? Never heard that one before.

    • Good catch, thank you! The person John is talking to in 19:10 is not an angel, it is a human like himself. ” I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus”. Angels are not our fellow servants and they are not our brethren. It is most likely Daniel, who was told to “seal up the book” of prophecy. I will write an article on it when I have the time. Thanks for writing.

  • Lee Rice

    I just watched a great Teacher (Chuck Missler) believes we are very close to Rapture ( with one thing to happen). Damascus must be destroyed. It is being rebuilt now.

    He made one statement that shot right through me. I started to pray in the Spirit. Chuck Missler stated that many Americans are leaving the USA. They are realizing that we are no longer adhering to the Constitution. He believes that all the parties to government should be charged with Treason.

    But his most interesting and hard to hear statement was that CHRISTIANS TODAY are in the same place where the JEWS were in the 40’s.in Germany,

    He believes American is being destroyed and quickly. He believes in being ready with stock that you can use to convert people is you are still here. But he believes that People in America have not addressed this yet and it may too late for American to turn around. He thinks we have not woke up to this fact. I am too old to move to another country, unless I hear from God. Many are moving. God is removing His hand of protection from America. Israel is in GOD”S hands, American is not. He believes America is over. We are headed for our own destruction. Christians, it is REALLY time to pray for protection of the Christian, the Believer of Jesus Christ.

    I have always been drawn to move to Israel. Every time, I want to go, something interfers. I have been there in the past and it is WONDERFUL.

    While I’m not a fan of Trump, neither Hillary, because of bad character, it is very clear that Trump cannot be the final Antichrist. The final Antichrist, according to Daniel, will arise out of the revived Roman Empire.

  • Geoffrey,

    I looked at the pictures and video here and I do not see worship going on, at least not in the way that you mean. What I see is a photo opportunity. These people aren’t worshipping…they are having a good time. I see videos and photos like this all of time, everywhere and never hear people say, “Oh my, they are worshipping that guy over there!” Gee Whiz!

    So, someone kisses the popes hand! Oh my, blasphemy!

    Geoffrey, you should familiarize yourself with other cultures and be educated.

    I didn’t see anybody lying prostrate before the pope and claiming him to be their God. Many of the people were not even looking at him at times. They took a photo together. One guy patted him on the back.

    Do you pat the God that you worship on the back? Of course not!

    In one shot, the PIZZA took center stage!

    Pat Wilson says, “Bowing at the feet of this man is blasphemy”. I saw a bow and a kneel and a kiss on the hand. So what? Let me ask, do you believe that bowing at the feet of a man equates to blasphemy? Well, read Revelation 3:9 and think about that again. Here it is for you:

    “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.”

    That word for worship is proskyneo and it means to kiss the hand, to touch the head on the ground, prostrate, do homage, etc.

    Can you imagine, Jesus is going to make some people do this to people! Is Jesus then going to force blasphemy to take place! Of course not.

    I can show you about 45 Old Testament scriptures of one man bowing to another, and it is not considered blasphemy.

    To Bill James…why are you not using the KJV on this website? Don’t you know that the KJV only is the original word of God (sarcasm intended)? Matthew 23:9 in the KJV says, “And call no man YOUR father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.” I emphasized the word YOUR because it is actually there in the Greek. The translation you used it FALSE. But, it is the favorite one used by anti-Catholics because is furthers to lie that they wish to propagate. The truth – no Catholic I know of refers to the Pope, or any priest, as “My Father” or “Our Father”. It is just father, and there is no scriptural injunction against that.

    Oh, and people are called ‘holy’ in scripture, so nothing wrong with that either.

    No real story here folks, just bad interpretation of pictures and scriptures.

    Now, I will sit back and wait for the scandalous story about the canonization of St. Teresa of Calcutta soon show up here.


  • Jason

    It was Angel who was with John during his vision not Daniel. How people twist scripture to get to these conclusions is beyond me.

  • Bill James

    “your fellow servant and of your brethren” doesn’t sound like an angel to me. I doesn’t say it was Daniel but the Lord told Daniel to seal up the scrolls till the end and then he would know. Maybe it was another prophet but that’s not important anyway. The message in that passage is “Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy”.

    • You are right, it’s not really important. But if you spend a lot of time in Daniel, as I have, and a lot of time in Revelation, it sure LOOKS like it’s Daniel talking with John.
