In Stunning Reversal, Pope Francis Tells Coronavirus Quarantined Catholics They Don’t Really Need A Priest To Confess Their Sins To God

In Stunning Reversal, Pope Francis Tells Coronavirus Quarantined Catholics They Don’t Really Need A Priest To Confess Their Sins To God

Published

Pope Francis tells Catholics under coronavirus quarantine to confess their sins directly to God and not the priest in the confessional box.
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

People who cannot get to confession because of the coronavirus lockdown or another serious reason can go to God directly, be specific about their sins, request pardon and experience God’s loving forgiveness, Pope Francis said.

How well I remember my years as a Catholic, starting as an altar boy and then spending 12 years in the Catholic school system, I can still recall how confusing it all was and how much the priests would constantly contradict themselves. Pope Francis’ statement over the weekend urging Catholics under coronavirus quarantine who cannot get to the confessional with a priest to simply confess their sins to God directly is a great example of that. What the…?? Has the pope become a temporary Protestant? Sure sounds like it.

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.” 1 Timothy 2:5-7 (KJB)

This is where most Catholics fail to make the connection, and understand that no one needs any organized church body to be their mediator between them and God. That’s the freedom of the gospel! If you’re a Catholic, ask yourself this. If the pope is now telling you to confess your sin directly to God, then why on earth did you ever need to get in a box with priest and tell him what belongs to God’s ears only? You didn’t! The truth is your priest has never had the ability to forgive your sins, no priest ever has. Only Jesus can do that, and you need to go to Him directly. So do it.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” John 3:16-18 (KJB)

The Roman Catholic Church cannot do anything for you that you cannot do for yourself by simply opening the bible, reading it, believing it and trusting God. If you want to be sure you know where you are going when you die, something no Catholic priest knows, just get saved and become born again. All roads do not lead to Heaven, and the Roman Catholic church is not the “one, true church”, they are a counterfeit imposter. If  you never really needed a priest to have your sins forgiven, as Pope Francis is now saying, you don’t need a priest for anything else, either.

If you can’t go to confession, take your sins directly to God, Pope Francis shockingly now says

FROM CRUX NOW: “This is the right time, the opportune moment. An act of contrition done well, and our souls will become white like the snow,” the pope said March 20 during his live-streamed morning Mass.

(EDITOR’S NOTE: Isn’t it amazing how quickly they can change the “never changing doctrine” of the Catholic Church? This is what their own teachings say about confession, and now because of the coronavirus, Catholics suddenly don’t need the priest they told you your whole life  you needed? I quoted the Catechism below, read it. Come on, now, think!)

Confession to a priest is an essential part of the sacrament of Penance: “All mortal sins of which penitents after a diligent self-examination are conscious must be recounted by them in confession, even if they are most secret and have been committed against the last two precepts of the Decalogue”  Catechism of the Catholic Church

Pope Francis began the Mass by praying again for doctors, especially in northern Italy, where the COVID-19 pandemic still is infecting thousands and leading to the deaths of hundreds of people each day.

Italy began a nationwide lockdown March 10 in an attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Churches are open for private prayer and priests can hear confessions if they are wearing a mask and gloves and stay more than 3 feet away from the penitent. But people are being encouraged not to leave their homes at all.

POPE FRANCIS TELLS CATHOLICS IN ROME THAT A ‘PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP’ WITH JESUS IS ‘DANGEROUS AND HARMFUL’

“Return to your father who is waiting for you,” the pope said. “The God of tenderness will heal us; he will heal us of the many, many wounds of life and the many ugly things we have done. Each of us has our own!”

God welcomes every repentant sinner with open arms, he said. “It’s like going home.” Lent is a special time “to let God wash us, purify us, to let God embrace us,” the pope said, and the best place for that is the confessional.

“But many people today would tell me, ‘Father, where can I find a priest, a confessor, because I can’t leave the house? And I want to make peace with the Lord, I want him to embrace me, I want the Father’s embrace.’”

The pope said his response would be, “Do what the Catechism (of the Catholic Church) says. It is very clear: If you cannot find a priest to confess to, speak directly with God, your father, and tell him the truth. Say, ‘Lord, I did this, this, this. Forgive me,’ and ask for pardon with all your heart.”

Make an act of contrition, the pope said, and promise God, “‘I will go to confession afterward, but forgive me now.’ And immediately you will return to a state of grace with God.” READ MORE

If you’re a Roman Catholic, now would be a great time to exercise logic and ask yourself “if I don’t need a priest in coronavirus quarantine, then why do I ever need one?” You don’t, and you never did. Get saved and you will have access to Jesus Christ directly!

Free Bible Program

Today We Received A Request For 20 King James Bibles For A Local Halfway House, And 2,000 Bibles For The Okeechobee Correctional Institution

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The only way a life, an attitude, a heart can be changed is by God through Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit, that’s why we’re sending out Bibles.

The first email read “I pastor Grace Baptist Church in Starke and we do what we can. If it is possible, I would like to request some King James Bibles for a men’s ministry here. We have men who are sharing their Bible with others when we meet, as several do not have their own and can’t afford to buy one.” What a simple request, yet one that will bear fruit in eternity. We’re sending him a case of study Bibles, and two cases of black vinyl King James Bibles. Now that other request, not so simple.

“For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!” 1 Corinthians 9:16 (KJB)

The second email read “I’m the Senior Chaplain at the Okeechobee Correctional Institute and we have 2000+ inmates. I would be grateful for any amount of Bibles you can offer. Thank you and God Bless.” Man, oh man, I really want to send him all 2,000 Bibles. Yeah, that’s what we need to do. If you or I were to stand at the Judgment Seat of Christ tonight, just imagine, how do you think we might feel in that moment about the importance of sending out Bibles? I think having that mindset is one big reason why we’re so close to 100,000 Bibles as I write this. We have been doing good, really good, but we can do more. I can do more. Is 100,000 Bibles the end of the road, or is it just the beginning? You tell me.

People are dying and going to Hell for the want of a Bible, and I want us to be doing everything we can to stand in the gap between the lost and the Lake of Fire. The pastor at Grace Baptist, when I told him we would happily send him the Bibles he needed, wrote back and said ” I don’t know what to say. I never imagined anything like this. You have gone above and beyond. I really can’t express my gratitude and thankfulness.” That’s how I feel to all of you who support NTEB, and support these outreaches we have to reach the lost. Pray for this ministry, and if the Lord has prospered you, be as generous as you can, donate like someone’s eternity depends on it because it does. TO THE FIGHT!!!

Bible Doctrine

The Modern Versions Prevent A Black Man From Getting Saved In Acts 8 While Teaching The Heresy Of Water Baptism For Salvation In The Church Age

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Your King James Bible faithfully preserves doctrinal truth in Acts 8 that the modern versions seek to destroy

If you have a King James Bible, when you read Acts 8 you thrill to see the salvation of the very first Gentile in the Church Age, the Ethiopian Eunuch, and you marvel at the dispensational truth that’s revealed when you’re shown that baptism in now no longer necessary for salvation. But…if you have an NIV, an ESV, or John MacArthur’s terrible new Legacy Standard Bible, those scripture nuggets have either been removed outright, or cast to the phantom zone of the footnotes section. Why? I’ll tell you why.

“And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” Acts 8:36,37 (KJB)

People who cannot see dispensations in the Bible will try and tell you that salvation is the same from Genesis to Revelation, but that’s a lie. Salvation isn’t even the same from Acts 2 to Acts 8. In Acts 2:38, Peter is preaching to an exclusively Jewish crowd, and telling them, as a nation, to get baptized for the remission of sins. Yet just 6 chapters later, Phillip assures the Ethiopian Eunuch that belief unto salvation comes before baptism. You are watching the rebirth of the Ethiopian Eunuch while at the same time watching God giving birth to a new dispensation that we call the Church Age. This is all so ground breaking and revelatory that Satan then comes along with his modern version magic eraser to wipe it clean where he can, and cast doubt on it everyplace else.

We live in a day and age where race and race relations are super-charged, and everyone is looking for racism in every cartoon bubble, and that can become weary and tiresome. But is it just a coincidence that the modern versions in Acts 8 swoop in like a seagull after popcorn to snatch up the exact moment that the Ethiopian Eunuch, a black man, gets saved? It kind of feels like it to me. So let’s do a simple bullet point demonstration of the damage done here by the modern versions, shall we?

  • THE DISAPPEARING SALVATION: In your King James Bible, you read that the Ethiopian Eunuch wants to know what’s stopping him from being baptized, and Phillip tells him he needs to get saved first, and baptized second. “And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” The Eunuch gets saved in verse 37, which is then promptly removed by the Laodicean Bible correctors. This is criminal activity perpetrated by Christian criminals who call themselves doctors.
  • THE DISAPPEARING DISPENSATION: By removing verse 37, there is now no dispensational difference between this event in Acts 8 in the Church Age, and the water-based salvation of the Kingdom Age. “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” You are being duped, dumbed down and dumped into that whirling vortex known as the ‘Greek and Hebrew Scholars Union’. This is where true biblical scholarship goes to die, don’t let it kill you. NOTE: If you have an ESV, NIV or any of those other perverted ‘bibles’, we invite you to throw it in the trash, then click here and we will send you a brand new King James Study Bible at zero cost to you.

The Greek and Hebrew scholars love to tear down your faith in the King James Bible so they can replace it with your faith in their scholarship, this is a con game of the highest magnitude. We have dozens of books at the Bookstore that will reveal everything you need to know about Bible versions, and we invite you to purchase some of those books right now.

Abrahamic Family House

The Headquarters For Chrislam, The Abrahamic Family House In Abu Dhabi, Is Now Nearly Complete And Should Be Operational In Just A Few Weeks

The Abrahamic Family House in Abu Dhabi is nearly complete and mere weeks away from opening its doors to Chrislam and the One World Religion

The world now accepts the idea of a Roman Catholic peace covenant brokered between a pope and an imam, and within this covenant a room is reserved for the Jews. Like all movements of man, it has a palatial headquarters, known as the Abrahamic Family House in Abu Dhabi, which is now just week away from being completed. It is considered one of the marvels of our age, alongside of the Abraham Accords. The stage is almost set, the players are all present and accounted for, all we need now is our 23 Skidoo.

“For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.” Isaiah 29:10 (KJB)

It is surreal watching all this come together, surreal because the whole world is watching it happen, and yet precious few have any ides what they’re seeing. The One World Religion of Chrislam is out in the open for all to see, exactly as the Bible says it would be in the last days, and yet a spirit of slumber from the Lord is preventing recognition on any appreciable level. The nearly complete Abrahamic Family House is a wonderful testimony to this fact.

Few other sites have followed the rise of Chrislam, the Declaration of Human Fraternity and the Abrahamic Family House as closely and consistently as we have here at NTEB. As you heard on the Podcast today, all these things we have mentioned in this article, up to and including the Abraham Accords are all working steadily towards the same goal. You are privileged to be a witness to this incredible outpouring of fulfilling Bible prophecy. When the Abrahamic Family House opens right after the first of the year, you’ll be among the very first to hear about because NTEB will be there first, happily reporting the story back to you. In 2023, you will hear a lot about the Abrahamic Family House, a lot about Human Fraternity For World Peace, and when you do, rest secure in the knowledge that our time on this earth is almost up. Until then…TO THE FIGHT!!!
