Pope Francis gave President Trump a copy of his 2015 encyclical calling for urgent, drastic cuts in fossil-fuel emissions after a half-hour meeting in his private study

“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” Revelation 17:5,6 (KJV)

If Pope Francis was a Bible believing Christian, he would have spoke to President Trump about his soul and his eternal destiny. If Pope Francis was a Bible believing Christian, he would have given him the gospel of the grace of God as first preached by the apostle Paul. But Pope Francis is neither a Bible believer nor a Christian, so what is he? He is a king over the country of Vatican City, and when the president arrived he did what any other worldly king would do. He talked politics, and the gospel of Climate Change in particular.

Pope Francis joined an international chorus urging Donald Trump to meet U.S. commitments on climate change in talks at the Vatican Wednesday

Pope Francis gave President Trump a copy of his 2015 encyclical calling for urgent, drastic cuts in fossil-fuel emissions after a half-hour meeting in his private study.

Francis’s choice of gift suggests he is adding his voice to those pressing Trump not to renege on the Paris accord, which is the cornerstone of global efforts to limit climate change. The Vatican said in a statement that the talks focused on international affairs and the promotion of peace, with particular emphasis on health care, education and immigration.

10 Things You May Not Know About the Vatican

The Vatican and Vatican City are many things to many people, but God has a rather unique name for it. The Bible calls the Roman Catholic Vatican system the “Whore of Babylon”, and describes her in graphic detail in Revelation 17 and 18 in your King James Bible.

So here are 10 fun facts that you should know about the “mother of harlots” that is the Vatican.

  • 1. Vatican City is the smallest country in the world. Encircled by a 2-mile border with Italy, Vatican City is an independent city-state that covers just over 100 acres, making it one-eighth the size of New York’s Central Park. Vatican City is governed as an absolute monarchy with the pope at its head. The Vatican mints its own euros, prints its own stamps, issues passports and license plates, operates media outlets and has its own flag and anthem. One government function it lacks: taxation. Museum admission fees, stamp and souvenir sales, and contributions generate the Vatican’s revenue.
  • 2. St. Peter’s Basilica sits atop a city of the dead, including its namesake’s tomb. A Roman necropolis stood on Vatican Hill in pagan times. When a great fire leveled much of Rome in A.D. 64, Emperor Nero, seeking to shift blame from himself, accused the Christians of starting the blaze. He executed them by burning them at the stake, tearing them apart with wild beasts and crucifying them. Among those crucified was St. Peter—disciple of Jesus Christ, leader of the Apostles and the first bishop of Rome—who was supposedly buried in a shallow grave on Vatican Hill. By the fourth century and official recognition of the Christian religion in Rome, Emperor Constantine began construction of the original basilica atop the ancient burial ground with what was believed to be the tomb of St. Peter at its center. The present basilica, built starting in the 1500s, sits over a maze of catacombs and St. Peter’s suspected grave.
  • 3. Caligula captured the obelisk that stands in St. Peter’s Square. Roman Emperor Caligula built a small circus in his mother’s gardens at the base of Vatican Hill where charioteers trained and where Nero is thought to have martyred the Christians. To crown the center of the amphitheater, Caligula had his forces transport from Egypt a pylon that had originally stood in Heliopolis. The obelisk, made of a single piece of red granite weighing more than 350 tons, was erected for an Egyptian pharaoh more than 3,000 years ago. In 1586 it was moved to its present location in St. Peter’s Square, where it does double duty as a giant sundial.
  • 4. For nearly 60 years in the 1800s and 1900s, popes refused to leave the Vatican. Popes ruled over a collection of sovereign Papal States throughout central Italy until the country was unified in 1870. The new secular government had seized all the land of the Papal States with the exception of the small patch of the Vatican, and a cold war of sorts then broke out between the church and the Italian government. Popes refused to recognize the authority of the Kingdom of Italy, and the Vatican remained beyond Italian national control. Pope Pius IX proclaimed himself a “prisoner of the Vatican,” and for almost 60 years popes refused to leave the Vatican and submit to the authority of the Italian government. When Italian troops were present in St. Peter’s Square, popes even refused to give blessings or appear from the balcony overlooking the public space.
  • 5. Benito Mussolini signed Vatican City into existence. The dispute between the Italian government and the Catholic Church ended in 1929 with the signing of the Lateran Pacts, which allowed the Vatican to exist as its own sovereign state and compensated the church $92 million (more than $1 billion in today’s money) for the Papal States. The Vatican used the payment as seed money to re-grow its coffers. Mussolini, the head of the Italian government, signed the treaty on behalf of King Victor Emmanuel III.
  • 6. Popes did not live at the Vatican until the 14th century. Even after the construction of the original St. Peter’s Basilica, popes lived principally at the Lateran Palace across Rome. They even left the city altogether in 1309 when the papal court moved to Avignon, France, after King Philip IV arranged for a French cardinal to be elected pope. Seven popes, all French, ruled from Avignon, and the papacy did not return to Rome until 1377, by which time the Lateran Palace had burned and the Vatican started to be used as a papal residence. Much repair work needed to be done, however, because the Vatican had fallen into such disrepair that wolves dug for bodies in the cemetery and cows even wandered the basilica.
  • 7. The Swiss Guard was hired as a mercenary force. The Swiss Guard, recognizable by its armor and colorful Renaissance-era uniforms, has been protecting the pontiff since 1506. That’s when Pope Julius II, following in the footsteps of many European courts of the time, hired one of the Swiss mercenary forces for his personal protection. The Swiss Guard’s role in Vatican City is strictly to protect the safety of the pope. Although the world’s smallest standing army appears to be strictly ceremonial, its soldiers are extensively trained and highly skilled marksmen. And, yes, the force is entirely comprised of Swiss citizens.
  • 8. At several times during the Vatican’s history, popes escaped through a secret passageway. In 1277, a half-mile-long elevated covered passageway, the Passetto di Borgo, was constructed to link the Vatican with the fortified Castel Sant’Angelo on the banks of the Tiber River. It served as an escape route for popes, most notably in 1527 when it likely saved the life of Pope Clement VII during the sack of Rome. As the forces of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V rampaged through the city and murdered priests and nuns, the Swiss Guard held back the enemy long enough to allow Clement to safely reach the Castel Sant’Angelo, although 147 of the pope’s forces lost their lives in the battle.
  • 9. The majority of Vatican City’s 600 citizens live abroad. As of 2011, the number of people with Vatican citizenship totaled 594. That number included 71 cardinals, 109 members of the Swiss Guard, 51 members of the clergy and one nun inside the Vatican walls. The largest group of citizens, however, was the 307 members of the clergy in diplomatic positions around the world. With Benedict XVI residing as a pope emeritus in the Vatican, the population will increase by one when a new pope is named.
  • 10. The Vatican Observatory owns a telescope in Arizona. As Rome expanded, light pollution from the city made it increasingly difficult for astronomers at the Vatican Observatory—located 15 miles from the city at the papal summer residence in Castel Gandolfo—to view the night skies, so in 1981 the observatory opened a second research center in Tucson, Arizona. The Vatican conducts astronomical research with a state-of-the-art telescope that sits atop Mount Graham in southeast Arizona.

Articles Now Appearing Attempting To Convince You That Donald Trump Has Dementia Is Proof That Joe Biden Is Just About Completely Out Of Gas

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

A pair of professional psychologists are warning that, despite more Americans’ believing Joe Biden is more unfit to be president, Donald Trump’s cognitive decline is getting worse.

There are lots of things you could credibly accuse Donald Trump of, after nearly a half-century in the real estate business, you have done a lot of deals both on top of, and under, the proverbial table. In fact, Donald Trump is on trial right now defending against some of those allegations. What you can’t accuse him of, with any credibility at all, is being afflicted with the dementia that has obviously integrated itself within the mind of Joe Biden. But this is a tactic the Left so loves to employ, accuse your enemy of doing what you’re doing to see what sticks.

“For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 2:16 (KJB)

Verbal blunders are not necessarily a sign of dementia, mentally healthy people can slip up while speaking if they are not getting enough rest, working too much, or being unduly distracted. But that’s not what you see when listening to Joe Biden speak. When he attempts to talk, his voice will range wildly from a deranged whisper all the way up to screaming, with little or no sense of any of it applying to what he’s talking about. Biden has a famous stutter, but it’s his inability to form words distinctly that is the real problem, they all just runtogetherlikethislinehere. I laughed out loud when I read the article below, as it shows the level of desperation that Joe Biden’s followers are feeling right now as he continues to sink way down in the polls. Joe Biden is about out of gas, and the whole country knows it. The only question is can Donald Trump stay alive long enough to make it over the finish line? That’s the memo.

They claim the former president has ‘rapid mental deterioration’

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: Senior lecturer at Cornell University Dr Harry Segal and fellow psychologist Dr John Gartner have begun a podcast called ‘Shrinking Trump’ to, as they put it, ‘dissect the reasons for Donald Trump’s rapid mental deterioration.’

Gartner even goes as far as accusing Trump – who has consistently denied any cognitive impairment while suggesting Biden doesn’t know where he is – of having dementia. ‘I always say to people: Look at Donald Trump right now, because that’s the best Donald Trump you’re ever going to see because dementia is a deteriorating illness and his rate of deterioration is accelerating,’ he said.

Despite having, in their opinion, sounded the alarm on Trump’s abilities, they believe the media refuses to cover it.

Gartner wondered: ‘I don’t know what it will take for the mainstream press to actually ask the question, ‘Is there something wrong with Trump’s brain? I think, even if he was caught wandering down Fifth Avenue in his pajamas, they wouldn’t ask the question,’ he added.

Segal lobbed the accusation that many liberals have thrown at Trump: that he has a narcissistic personality disorder and warned that it’s all downhill from here.

‘It’s a disorder that doesn’t get better,’ he said. ‘It gets worse when there’s less structure.’

Segal said ‘we’re going to see… an interaction between the cognitive decline and the personality disorder, both of which are severe diagnoses for anybody, and this is for somebody who never should have been in power in the first place.’ READ MORE

Study Finds That Christian Support For Donald Trump Comes Mostly From The New Apostolic Reformation Who Believe They Are Taking Over The World

Published

The New Apostolic Reformation cult with their Seven Mountains Mandate heresy makes up the core of Christian support for Donald Trump and the presidency

We have warned you about the New Apostolic Reformation for many years now, with their man-centered and earth-centered doctrine of what they call the 7 Mountains Mandate for world domination. They are an excellent illustration of what Paul is talking about in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 with the ‘falling away’ from correct doctrinal teaching in the last days. Sadly, these ‘apostles of the NAR’ are the driving force behind Donald Trump and his bid to retake the White House. That’s not good.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJB)

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” 1 John 2:15 (KJB)

God makes a great promise to the Jewish people who are called by His Name of Jehovah, that if they will humble themselves and repent, He will heal their land. This promise is 100% given to the Jews, and 100% given to God’s holy land of Israel. America doesn’t enter the equation at any point, coming or going. The New Apostolic Reformation teaches Christian world domination, for the Lord of course, to set up a kingdom here on Earth without Jesus coming back first to create it. That is heresy. Christians are called to be a witness to the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and to stay separate and apart from the world system. Vote for whomever you want in November, but do it with the knowledge that Christians will never ‘take over the world for Jesus’ because no Christian is called to do that.

The New Apostolic Reformation and the Seven Mountains Mandate is the driving force behind another Donald Trump presidency

FROM RELIGION NEWS: This past month, a group of self-styled American Christian prophets released an urgent word from God on YouTube about an impending Islamic uprising in the U.S. Pointing to pro-Palestinian protests on college campuses, they declared that an “insurrection is forming that is like unto the communist takeover in Russia. … This is not only about bringing a Palestinian state to the Middle East but an Islamic state to North America and other nations.”

The good news, according to these prophets, is that God also says, “If the church repents, I will relent. I will protect your nations.”

If this God-speaking-through-prophets-and-warning-nations-about-other-religions business sounds fringy and oddball in modern Christianity, it once was. But such prophecies and these prophets are rapidly redefining mainstream American evangelical theology, practice and politics. They are affiliated with a movement called the New Apostolic Reformation, a set of leadership networks whose leaders call themselves modern-day apostles and prophets and believe they are commissioned by God to take over the world.

This NAR movement runs like a golden thread through recent flashpoints of evangelical Christian support for Donald Trump, Christian nationalism and Christian extremism. NAR leaders were central to the mobilization of Christians for the Jan. 6 insurrection, and many apostles, prophets and NAR symbols were present around the U.S. Capitol that day. NAR ideas helped inspire the recent controversy surrounding the Alabama Supreme Court in vitro fertilization rulingHouse Speaker Mike Johnson flies a flag outside his office that is closely associated with the NAR’s aggressive prophetic politics.

The reasonable objector may argue that all of those things might be true, and yet the NAR could still be a fringe movement. How much influence do NAR ideas have on broader American evangelicalism?

It’s true that the NAR networks come from the amorphous nondenominational, charismatic sector of American evangelicalism that seeks to restore the supernatural dimensions of early Christianity. Historically these groups have been outside the evangelical mainstream.

But we have collected data showing just how far these NAR-associated beliefs and practices have spread within American evangelical communities. The present-day reach and influence of these ideas may be shocking to those acquainted with conventional evangelicalism. Charismatic theologies, NAR prophecies and radical politics that once operated on the margins of evangelicalism have moved to the center of the action. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this transformation has a lot to do with Donald Trump.

The New Apostolic Reformation refers to a set of charismatic leadership networks established in the late 1990s and early 2000s by a renegade evangelical seminary professor named C. Peter Wagner. Almost all of its leaders, including Wagner himself, believed themselves to be newly commissioned apostles and prophets, endowed with immense supernatural authority to revolutionize the church, to defeat Satan and his demons and build the kingdom of God on earth.

The Seven Mountains prophecy imagines every society as having seven major arenas of influence — religion, family, education, government, media, entertainment and commerce — and the prophecy commands Christians to conquer the tops of each of these mountains so that Christian influence can flow down into broader society. Put simply, the Seven Mountain Mandate is a prophetically derived, systematic program for Christian supremacy.

Shortly after Trump declared his candidacy for president in summer of 2015, he enlisted his friend and spiritual adviser, Paula White-Cain, a charismatic apostle and televangelist, “to be the bridge between him and evangelicals.” White-Cain began by inviting many of her fellow charismatic evangelical leaders — Messianic rabbis, televangelists, prophets, NAR apostles and megachurch pastors — to meet with Trump early in the campaign.

The fact that these NAR-affiliated Christians make up the core of Christian Trump support and the new base of the Republican Party also helps explain why many elected officials have taken a decidedly charismatic turn. It explains why a Southern Baptist in good standing like Mike Johnson would be linking arms with NAR apostles, why provocateur Roger Stone has claimed he too is the subject of prophecies and announced in 2022 that he had a vision of a demonic portal above Joe Biden’s White House. It explains why former Texas Gov. Rick Perry would propagate the notion of Trump being anointed by God. READ MORE

Trump Sweeps While Biden Sleeps As Super Tuesday Reveals The Coming Rematch That Nobody Wants In Upcoming Presidential Election Insanity

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

Donald Trump has huge Super Tuesday wins this week as sleepy Joe Biden is giving the Democrats November nightmares, what will happen next?

Donald Trump easily won all contests on Super Tuesday except one, relegating Nikki Haley to footnote status as she prepares to drop out of a race she never had a shot of winning. Over on the American Samoa, Joe Biden lost to someone no one has ever heard of before, and will likely never hear from again. On paper, Donald Trump should easily defeat Joe Biden in November, too bad elections are not decided on paper like they used to be. Will we have Trump’s second term, Obama’s fourth term, or something no one expects to happen in 2025? That’s the question.

Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.” Psalm 55:22 (KJB)

The Democrats eager to prevent another Donald Trump victory in November, conspired together to bring 91 federal counts against him in 4 states, and in doing so elevated him to martyr status almost immediately. Not very bright. If they really wanted to stop him, they all should have conspired to never mention him, thereby cutting off the flow of millions of dollars in free advertising by keeping him in the headlines. There’s only 8 months until the November election, and there are so many things that will be popping up between now and then. Not the least of which are the solar eclipse of April 8th, and the ‘Civil War’ movie on April 12th. Lastly, Donald Trump had another huge win when the Supreme Court voted 9-0 in favor of preventing states from kicking him off the ballot. If Democrats find they have no other option to ‘stop Trump’, will they implement the final solution? That’s the memo.

Democrats ready to hit panic button in Trump-Biden race

FROM THE HILL: Democrats are beginning to hit the panic button as an implosion in former President Trump’s campaign fails to materialize and a series of polls suggests President Biden is weaker than he was four years ago. Biden is trailing Trump in polls of several battleground states, underscoring concerns that his message isn’t gaining traction with swing voters.

Many Democrats thought Trump’s legal problems would submarine him, but the Supreme Court in a unanimous decision on Monday ruled in his favor on a 14th Amendment case. Other high-profile trials have been delayed, raising doubts about whether they will reach verdicts before Election Day. Steve Jarding, a Democratic strategist and former adviser to the Senate Democrats’ campaign arm, said Democratic lawmakers “should” be worried about the emerging political picture.

“If you’re Donald Trump and his team, you go, ‘Wow, I’ll take this any day of the week,’” he said, comparing Trump’s relatively strong political position with Biden’s faltering effort to get his message out to voters. A Bloomberg News/Morning Consult poll published last week showed Biden trailing Trump in several critical states, including Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada and Wisconsin.

In those states, 48 percent of voters said they would back Trump, while 43 percent said they would back Biden.

Democrats heard another alarm bell over the weekend when a New York Times/Siena College poll showed Trump leading Biden 48 percent to 43 percent among registered voters nationwide. The survey showed a majority of voters think the economy is in poor shape, and 47 percent of voters strongly disapprove of Biden’s job performance, the highest such disapproval rating of any point in his presidency measured by Times/Siena polling.

Sen. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) said the latest poll numbers are concerning, and he decried a separate decision by the Supreme Court to postpone ruling on Trump’s legal immunity claims to the summer as “outrageous.”

“We’re concerned. This is going to be a tough race, but it hasn’t really begun yet, so a lot of the coverage is just about Biden’s age, not about his policies,” he said. “The president is going to get out on the stump and he’s going to have an opportunity to show he’s got the energy as well as the intellect and the acuity to do the job.”

Welch acknowledged that “in retrospect” it was a mistake for Biden to pass up doing an interview with CBS news ahead of the Super Bowl, which would have allowed him to reach a huge national audience.

“In retrospect, it would have been good to do the Super Bowl interview, throw a few deep passes into the end zone,” he said.

On the economy, Welch said the economic indicators are “solid” but people are “feeling some anxiety” about making ends meet when they pay the grocery bills. READ MORE
