As we watched the non-stop coverage of the pope’s visit to America last month, many of the scenes appeared to be apocalyptic. We saw multitudes of people flocking to get a glimpse of an old man who was unknown three years ago. The national excitement for this false prophet was overwhelming as gullible people hung on his every word. The Lord Jesus said, "I have come in my Father's name, and you do not receive me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive him" (John 5:43). Warnings were ignored from the true head of the church who said, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves” (Mat. 7:15). The Lord Jesus said, "I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not receive me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive him” (John 5:43). Not only does the pope not come in the Father’s name, he arrogantly wears the title reserved for the one and only “Holy Father” (John 17:11). Tragically, most Catholics do not know the Word of God and their ignorance makes them easy prey for the worst kind of deception.
Pope Francis didn’t mention Jesus Christ a single time in his entire address to Congress. Considering the Lord Jesus is the very foundation of the Christian faith, this omission speaks volumes about his ungodly agenda. The next day, the pope did mention Jesus in his message at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, but in a deceptively cynical way. He said, “we need to remember that we are followers of Jesus… and his life, humanly speaking, ended in failure, the failure of the cross.” This pope is clueless when it comes to understanding God’s will. The life of Christ was anything but a failure at the cross. His substitutionary death that satisfied divine justice for His people was the predetermined plan of God (Acts 2:23). When the sinless Savior accomplished everything necessary to save His people, He cried out in victory, “it is finished!” (John 19:30). The good shepherd laid down his life for the sheep (John 10:11). No one took the Lord’s life, He played it down on His own accord (John10:18).
Jesus described the pope and all other false prophets as those who come to steal and kill and destroy (John 10:10).
