Yes, the Vatican under Pope Francis is working diligently these days to ‘reconcile’ backslidden Christians (all non-Catholics) to Mother Rome.
“And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:16-18 (KJV)
This past weekend, Charismatics and Catholics filled a sports stadium in Los Angeles in order to ‘have unity’ with each other. This is what the Catholic website majorchange.org had to say about the event:
MajorChange is engaged in mobilizing Catholics who recognize the importance of the Charismatic outpouring in the 20th century and want to participate in an ecumenical 15 hour prayer and fasting Azusa Now event in the Los Angeles area. We are coordinating efforts between TheCall, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and various Catholic apostolates to inform, invite and include Catholic participants in this epic prayer meeting. Prayers of mutual blessings and reconciliation will resound throughout the day. source
Yes, the Vatican under Pope Francis is working diligently these days to ‘reconcile’ backslidden Christians (all non-Catholics) to Mother Rome. Sensing that the Charismatics are the weakest link in within Christianity, and rightly so, they have spent years wooing leaders like Kenneth Copeland, Jesse Duplantis and others with their massive megachurch followings. Remember this gem from a few years ago?
The Catholic Church system has no interest in joining forces with anyone, they are buying not selling. While I believe that many Christians who attended the Azusa Now event sincerely want peace among the brethren, but guess what? The Roman Catholic Church is not Christian, they never were. The Vatican has been the greatest persecutors of Christians in world history. Rome killed Christians in the catacombs for 3 centuries before instituting a hostile takeover in 325 AD with the creation of the Roman Catholic Church. Then, in what used to be taught in schools as the Dark Ages, the Roman Catholic Church killed Christians for a thousand years. If that was not enough, the Roman Catholic Church slaughtered millions of Christians during the three centuries of the Spanish Inquisition.
Watch as ‘words of knowledge’ are ‘imparted’ by Christian psychics in mass deception at Azusa Now:
Charismatics with their ‘words of knowledge’ are really more like psychics in trying to foretell the future. Are we to believe that the event organizers received names of people and places including street names from the Holy Spirit? Where do you find that in the Bible? This is nothing more than the same type of con game people like Benny Hinn use at their revivals to deceive millions. This is what passes as ‘revival’ these days, and is a perfect fulfillment of the Laodicean church in the last days. If you have the stomach to watch this all the way through you will see it is much more like a game show than what the Bible would call a revival.
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 4:2-4 (KJV)
None of what happened at Azusa Now has anything to do with Bible doctrine or Bible teachings. It is nothing more than ‘Christian’ smoke and mirrors designed to get people hyped up on feelings instead of sound Bible teaching. Azua Now is a great illustration of end times false revival and false unity. Real revival, like what we had under great preachers like DL Moody and Billy Sunday, does not happen today because Christians really don’t want Bible teachings.
