‘This Document, in accordance with previous International Documents that have emphasized the importance of the role of religions in the construction of world peace’
Back in 2015, when Pope Francis addressed the United Nations, he said a very unusual thing. Speaking to the General Assembly, the Catholic leader said that he had come ‘in my own name‘ to speak with them. Huh?? I thought that the “holy father” was the ‘Vicar of Christ‘, and was the representative of Jesus Christ on the earth? The Bible tells us, of course, that the pope is no such thing, but the Catholic Church says that he is, right? So why on Earth did he not say that he had come ‘in the Name of Jesus of Nazareth’?
“But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.” John 5:42,43 (KJV)
Flash-forward to February 2019, and the same pope is signing a ‘peace covenant‘ with the leader of Sunni Islam, Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb. Not only does this document make multiple references to assembling all the world’s religions, it references God in only a generic sense. There are no Bible verses quoted or referred to, no connection between the word ‘god’ and Abraham, Moses, or any of the other Bible patriarchs. Why would the Catholic Church, which claims to be the ‘true church’ only refer to God generically? Simple. Because the document does not invoke or refer to the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob found in the Holy Bible, it refers to the generic ‘god’ of Islam, otherwise known as Allah. Which is to say no God at all.
But wait…catch your breath…there’s more. A lot more. And did you notice that the pope is kissing the Imam on the mouth? Isn’t that how Judas, who is both a type of Antichrist as well as the coming Antichrist, betrayed Jesus?
The Vatican document, as you can see here, is quite lengthy, and is packed with tons of information. It’s filled with exactly the type of verbiage you would expect from someone who was here to either prepare the way for Antichrist or was the Antichrist himself. 13 times (13 is the number of rebellion and connected with the Devil) the phrase ‘In the name of ‘ is used in this end times peace covenant. 13 times! And would you like to take a wild, crazy guess in Whose Name that nothing is addressed to? Not one time? If you said ‘Jesus Christ’, you would be 100% correct.
“God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.” Psalm 47:8 (KJV)
Here’s the reason why nothing is addressed to Jesus. Pope Francis signs the document with ‘His Holiness, Pope Francis’, and what does that tell you? A quick word search in your King James Bible on the word ‘holiness’ will answer that question for you. The pope is not only representing that he sits in place of Jesus Christ, but I submit to you that Pope Francis sees himself as the messiah. The pope also refers to himself as ‘holy father’, right? That term only occurs one time in the Bible, and it is reference to God and God alone.
“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)
Now, lest you think I am overstating the case, here is but a small snippet from the Vatican’s ‘universal peace’ document:
The firm conviction that authentic teachings of religions invite us to remain rooted in the values of peace; to defend the values of mutual understanding, human fraternity and harmonious coexistence; to re-establish wisdom, justice and love; and to reawaken religious awareness among young people so that future generations may be protected from the realm of materialistic thinking and from dangerous policies of unbridled greed and indifference that are based on the law of force and not on the force of law;
“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” 1 Thessalonians 5:3 (KJV)
If you have studied any prophecy at all related to the upcoming time of Jacob’s trouble, spent any time at all in either Daniel 9 or Matthew 24, then you know exactly what type of language that is. That is the end times language of Antichrist and his coming false peace. This pathetic ‘peace covenant’ between the Vatican and Islam is a nice little appetizer to the main course of the coming prophesied false peace that Antichrist will broker between Israel and the Palestinians. Count on it.
One World Religion: Pope Francis Signs Historic Covenant With Islam
FROM TECHNOCRACY: Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb is considered to be the most important imam in Sunni Islam, and he arrived at the signing ceremony in Abu Dhabi with Pope Francis “hand-in-hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood”. But this wasn’t just a ceremony for Catholics and Muslims. According to a British news source, the signing of this covenant was done “in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths”…
The pope and the grand imam of al-Azhar have signed a historic declaration of fraternity, calling for peace between nations, religions and races, in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths.
Pope Francis, the leader of the world’s Catholics, and Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the head of Sunni Islam’s most prestigious seat of learning, arrived at the ceremony in Abu Dhabi hand-in-hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood.
In other words, there was a concerted effort to make sure that all of the religions of the world were represented at this gathering.
According to the official Vatican website, a tremendous amount of preparation went in to the drafting of this document, and it encourages believers from all religions “to shake hands, embrace one another, kiss one another, and even pray” with one another…
The document, signed by Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, Ahmed el-Tayeb, was prepared “with much reflection and prayer”, the Pope said. The one great danger at this moment, he continued, is “destruction, war, hatred between us.” “If we believers are not able to shake hands, embrace one another, kiss one another, and even pray, our faith will be defeated”, he said. The Pope explained that the document “is born of faith in God who is the Father of all and the Father of peace; it condemns all destruction, all terrorism, from the first terrorism in history, that of Cain.”
There is a lot of language about peace in this document, but it goes way beyond just advocating for peace.
Over and over again, the word “God” is used to simultaneously identify Allah and the God of Christianity. Here is just one example…
We, who believe in God and in the final meeting with Him and His judgment, on the basis of our religious and moral responsibility, and through this Document, call upon ourselves, upon the leaders of the world as well as the architects of international policy and world economy, to work strenuously to spread the culture of tolerance and of living together in peace; to intervene at the earliest opportunity to stop the shedding of innocent blood and bring an end to wars, conflicts, environmental decay and the moral and cultural decline that the world is presently experiencing.
On top of that, the document also boldly declares that “the diversity of religions” that we see in the world was “willed by God”…
Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept;
In essence, this is saying that it is the will of God that there are hundreds of different religions in the world and that they are all acceptable in His sight.
