Pope Francis Declares In Mass On Tuesday That Worshipping Mary Is ‘Not Optional’ And That She ‘Provides All Blessings’ As The Mother Of God

Pope Francis tells his 1.4 billion followers that worshipping Mary is ‘not optional’ and that she alone is the way to God and that we must all follow her.

Jorge Bergoglio, also known as ‘Pope Francis’, led Roman Catholics on Tuesday in the observance of the feast day called “The Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God,” during which he expressed the hope that Mary would “protect” the people for the new year, and claimed that in times of trouble, men should not only “lift their eyes to our lady” but to also let Mary gaze upon them, for she is “our life, our sweetness and our hope.”

Let me just start by saying that before I got saved, I was a Roman Catholic for 30 years of my life. I attended 12 years of Catholic School where I was taught by nuns and priests, was an altar boy for 3 of those years, and faithfully attended mass and worshipped Mary and Jesus, in that order, as I was instructed to do. Then I got saved, filled with the Holy Spirit, opened the Bible and the sickening feeling of realized I had been lied to all those years swept over me.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6 (KJV)

Look at the photo of Pope Francis worshipping before the “mother and child” statue, take a good look at it. The Roman Catholic “jesus” is presented as a weak little baby who needs his mother to function. Mary is shown to us as the “mediatrix of all graces“, and nothing could be further from the truth. Not one, single person in the Bible ever prayed to Mary, ever asked for her help on anything, not one time. Furthermore, Mary was present in the Upper Room on the day of Pentecost, but as a silent observer. She had no recorded input of any kind.

“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)

The only place you will find the Mary that Pope Francis demands his 1.4 billion followers worship is in the writings of the Catholic Church. According to the Bible, Mary cannot hear you, cannot help you, and unless Jesus lied in John 14, she has zero power to save you. Worshipping Mary will lead you to one place and one place only – the fiery pits of Hell. As a former Roman Catholic, though I have nothing but disgust for the Roman Whore of Revelation 17 and 18, I have nothing but empathy and compassion for the 1.4 billion lost souls trapped in her vicious net.

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4 (KJV)

To all the Roman Catholics who write in to tell me that “we don’t worship Mary, we venerate her”, you can stop saying that now. Pope Francis has already declared that to be not true, and has obviously reaffirmed that yesterday. First step in solving a problem is admitting that it exists. The pope is absolutely instructing his followers to worship Mary, and it’s time to stop doing that. The Bible only shows us one Saviour, Jesus, and He outside of the Father and the Holy Spirit, He needs no assistance of any kind.

‘Pope Francis’ Asserts During New Year’s ‘Mary, Mother of God’ Mass: She Is ‘Our Life, Our Sweetness and Our Hope’

FROM CHRISTIAN NEWS: “May Mary, Mother of God, protect and accompany us during this new year and bring the peace of her Son into our hearts and the world,” Bergoglio tweeted this morning, generating over 62K likes as of press time.

Bergoglio delivered further remarks during mass at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, where he provided a message for the feast day, which is observed every Jan. 1 as the octave of Christmas on the Roman Catholic liturgical calendar.

“Especially in times of need, when we are entangled in life’s knots, we rightly lift our eyes to our lady,” he stated, according to the Catholic News Agency and a video posted to YouTube by Vatican News. “Yet first, we should let ourselves be gazed upon by our lady.”

“The eyes of our lady know how to bring light to every dark corner; everywhere they rekindle hope,” Bergoglio continued. “As she gazes upon us, she says, ‘Take heart, dear children; here I am, your mother!’”

He stated that the maternal gaze of Mary helps men to “grow in faith,” and keeps them “rooted in the Church, where unity counts more than diversity.”

“How much dispersion and solitude there is all around us. The world is completely connected, and yet seems completely disjointed. We need to entrust ourselves to our mother,” Bergoglio said. “Mary is a cure for solitude and dispersion. She the mother of consolation. She stands with those who are alone. She knows that words enough are not enough to console; presence is needed. And she is present as a mother.”

“Our lady is not optional; she has to be welcomed into our life,” Pope Francis said to those gathered. “She is the queen of peace, who triumphs over evil and leads us along paths of goodness.”

He pointed to the Salve Regina, also known as the “Hail, Holy Queen,” which refers to Mary as “our life.” He acknowledged that the words of the Marian tune might seem exaggerated because Christ is life, but said that Mary is “so closely united” to Christ and His people that “we can do no better than to put our hands in hers, and to acknowledge her as our life, our sweetness and our hope.”

“Hail, holy queen, mother of mercy/hail our life, our sweetness and our hope/to thee do we cry,” Catholics recite in the Salve Regina, which is also stated to be the last prayer in the rosary.

He then presented a prayer to Mary for his closing remarks.

“Take us by the hand, Mary. Clinging to you, we will pass safely through the straits of history,” Bergoglio prayed. “Lead us by the hand to rediscover the bonds that unite us. Gather us beneath your mantle in the tenderness of true love, where the human family is reborn. We fly to thy protection, holy mother of God.”

As previously reported, the feast of The Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God was initially the feast of The Circumcision of Christ until being replaced in 1974 by Pope John VI.

“This celebration, assigned to January 1 in conformity with the ancient liturgy of the city of Rome, is meant to commemorate the part played by Mary in this mystery of salvation,” John XI wrote. “It is meant also to exalt the singular dignity which this mystery brings to the ‘holy mother … through whom we were found worthy … to receive the Author of life.’”

“It is likewise a fitting occasion for renewed adoration of the newborn Prince of Peace, for listening once more to the glad tidings of the angels, and for imploring from God, through the queen of peace, the supreme gift of peace,” he said.

The day is also known as the “World Day of Peace” for this reason.

Bergoglio tweeted on Sunday, “May Jesus, Mary and Joseph bless and protect all families around the world, so that love, joy and peace may reign within them.” The tweet generated 72K likes. READ MORE

None of what you will see here in this video, not one bit of it, if biblical in any way imaginable. This is nothing but pagan worship of dead people who cannot save you.

As The Summer Heat Turns Up, NTEB Is Supplying Homeless Shelter And Rescue Mission Ministries With Free King James Bibles Thanks To You

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Yesterday’s trip to Knox Area Rescue Ministries went very well! Lots of tracts given out, many King James Bibles and backpacks given, along with snacks and water.

An email we received yesterday reads “On behalf of CPR Missions, and with the support of Lee’s Chapel Baptist Church in Sweetwater, TN, we have placed several KJV Bibles into the hands of new converts and Christians in need of God’s words, primarily among the homeless population around Knox Area Rescue Ministries in Knoxville, Tennessee.” In a world obsessed with Machine Gun Kelly and the latest Tik Tok video, that doesn’t mean much, but up in Heaven that type of “news update” gets the angels shouting praises. Guess what? You helped us to place those Bible there, and a whole lot more.

“Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.” Acts 8:4 (KJB)

Another email we got from Iowa said “our faith-based community residential treatment center had asked for Bibles during several of our prayer sessions and none were  forthcoming. I was hoping you could help God answer a prayer for Bibles for this group, and you did. The cases of King James Bibles arrived on Monday. All in great condition. UPS managed to deliver them safely.  I will take them to the prayer group at LIFECHANGERS Outreach on Thursday morning. Thanks so much and to the Fight indeed.”  Who sent them all those Bibles? You did.

The NTEB Bible Believers Bookstore is one year and one month old, and it is wonderfully becoming exactly what I prayed the Lord it would be. It’s not so much of a bookstore as it is a gospel lighthouse, and through it is conducted activity that will be reviewed at the Judgment Seat of Christ! On that day when the Lord Jesus Christ asks “who sacrificed to send out all those copies of my word?”, I will point to each and every one of you and say, “they did, Lord, they did”. (I really thought I could type those words without crying, but I couldn’t). What we are all engaged in is Heaven’s idea of a “super bowl’, where the final score will reverberate throughout all eternity. But it is late in the 4th quarter, and The Referee is about to call time. TO THE FIGHT!!!

Only one life, ’twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last.

This weekend in America we will observe and celebrate July 4th, with time off from work, backyard bbq’s, trips to the lakes and oceans, with all the usual fanfare. On that day in America, right around 8,295 people will spend their last day on this earth. When you get to the Judgment Seat, Jesus won’t ask you anything about how many hot dogs you are on July 4th, but I imagine He will be quite interested in what you did to reach any of those 8,295 souls with the gospel before they died. Here at NTEB, our Free Bible and Gospel Tract Program is reaching out to those people, the forgotten people, the “least of these” with the gospel by supplying free King James Bibles to the ministres who bring them to the streets.

We are only able to do this because you pray for this ministry and you financially support the work we are doing. The free Bibles, the gospel billboards, and the bookstore are all possible because you give us the resources to make it possible. Please pray about supporting this most important work of getting the gospel out while time remains. Thank you so very much.

The World Moves One Step Closer To WWIII As United States Announces Permanent Base In Poland And NATO Invites Finland And Sweden To Join Them

America will deploy thousands more troops to Europe along with fighters, air defences and ships, Joe Biden announced today, as NATO reinforces its eastern flank in a new Iron Curtain to protect the continent from Russia, moving closer to World War 3.

Either Putin is insane or he is waging a near perfect plan to pull the United States and NATO into World War 3, only time will tell, I suppose. If he’s insane, it doesn’t really matter, he’ll crumble and be swept away eventually. But if he’s not crazy, if this half-heartedly fought war that Russia has now with Ukraine is nothing more than bait, the United States and NATO just bit.

Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.” Isaiah 45:15 (KJB)

On one hand, a new military base in Poland, neighbor to Ukraine, sounds like a great idea, but it’s not really. What it does is create a new ‘Iron Curtain’ that all but ensures World War 3 will arrive sooner rather than later. From a Bible prophecy perspective it’s a good thing, but from the perspective of the people who are about to be thrust into this war, it’s not so great. So far Putin is crazy, but he’s crazy like a fox.

US will sent thousands more troops to Europe along with fighter jets and ships to help defend against Russia

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: Joe Biden, speaking at a NATO summit in Madrid today, announced the creation of a new base for the US Fifth Army Corps in Poland – the first permanent American base in the country – along with 3,000 extra soldiers to be sent to Romania and ‘enhanced’ troop rotations for the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Two more squadrons of F-35 fighters will be deployed to the UK, Biden added, along with additional air defence systems for Germany and Italy, and another two destroyers which will be stationed at Rota Naval Station in Spain, bringing the total to six.

Meanwhile NATO formally invited Finland and Sweden to join the alliance after Turkey dropped its opposition, and announced it will boost troops on its eastern flank by almost 4,000 compared to March this year. It comes after alliance chief Jens Stoltenberg yesterday announced NATO’s high-alert force – troops which are not deployed but can be quickly sent into battle in the event of war – is being increased from 40,000 to 300,000.

Moscow reacted with fury to the news, saying NATO expansion will be ‘destabilising’ for Europe.

‘We consider the expansion of the North Atlantic alliance to be a purely destabilising factor in international affairs. It does not add security either to those who are expanding it, those joining it, or to other countries that perceive the alliance as a threat,’ Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said.

The original ‘Iron Curtain’ was a phrase coined by Winston Churchill to describe the way Soviet Union and allied eastern European states sealed off contact with the West after the Second World War.  NATO was founded in 1949 to deter a Soviet invasion of Western Europe, with most of the alliance’s troops based in West Germany after it joined in 1955. Now many of NATO’s forces are moving into the former-Soviet East European states to deter new aggression by Putin’s Russia. READ MORE

NATO is set to put a force of 300,000 troops on high alert in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. NBC News’ Keir Simmons reports from the organization’s summit in Madrid.

President Joe Biden helped broker a deal that will allow Finland and Sweden into the NATO alliance, the most significant expansion in nearly 20 years.

SELAH PETRA: They Call It The ‘DEFEND Act’, And It’s A 10-Nation Confederacy In The Middle East To Protect Israel From A Nuclear Attack From Iran

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Are you ready for a 10-Nation Confederacy in the Middle East centered around Israel? You better be, because that’s what is being proposed right now and it’s based on the Abraham Accords and involves Selah Petra. Awake yet?

The Times of Israel reports that “The White House on Tuesday announced the dates for US President Joe Biden’s highly anticipated first trip to the Middle East, which will include stops in Israel, the West Bank and Saudi Arabia from July 13 to July 16.” What will the United States be there to do? Glad you asked.

“They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:” Psalm 83 (KJB)

Biden’s visit to Israel will  “focus on the Jewish state’s “increasing integration into the region through the Abraham Accords — normalization agreements Jerusalem signed with the UAE, Bahrain and Morocco — through the strengthening of Israel’s ties with Israel and Egypt and through the creation of a new forum established by the Biden administration that includes the US, the UAE, Israel and India — the I2U2.”

So what are we talking about here? Only a 10-nation confederacy, 9 Arab nations and Israel, based on the Abraham Accords, all coming together to create a Middle East NATO-style organization that puts you smack dab in the middle of the book of Daniel, that’s all. Who’s the first Arab nation willing to join? Jordan. What is Jordan called in Bible? Edom and Moab. What’s in Edom and Moab? Why, it’s Selah Petra. Now do you see how close we really are? The 9 Arab nations are Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Egypt, Iraq and Jordan, add Israel and that brings you to 10. Hmm, I wonder what Mohamed bin Zayed and Emmanuel Macron think of all this progress? I imagine we will be finding out that answer soon and very soon.

US bill seeks Israeli security cooperation with Arab states against Iran

FROM THE TIMES OF ISRAEL: The Biden administration could soon facilitate cooperation between Israel and several Arab states on integrating air and missile defenses to counter Iran’s threats in the region, under bipartisan legislation unveiled in the US Congress. The proposal would see Israel collaborate with states it doesn’t have diplomatic ties with — Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait and Qatar — as well as Egypt, Jordan, the UAE and Bahrain.

Members of the Abraham Accords Caucus in the House and Senate introduce the so-called DEFEND Act, defined as “a joint effort by Congress to develop a strategy for Abraham Accords and other countries to combat Iranian aggression threatening peace and security in the Middle East. READ MORE
