Front Page Mag: What would happen if the world took Pope Francis’ advice (via a tweet)? “Do we really want peace? Then let’s ban all weapons so we don’t have to live in fear of war,” said the pontiff.
While on the surface, the disappearance of all weapons might suggest the inability to do violence, in reality, it would mean the certain annihilation of the West as a civilization.
For starters, the Pope seems to forget that violence and the things that motivate it—hate, envy, rapacity, and plain old evil—do not need weapons. Had he turned to the book he claims to represent, the Bible, he would have seen that the first act of violence—of murder—that of Cain against his brother, Abel, did not require weapons: just a violent and envious will; the brothers “were in the field [when] Cain rose against Abel his brother and killed him.” Genesis 4 does not shed light on how this first fratricide occurred but it was most assuredly done without a formal weapon—maybe a large rock, branch, or simply Cain’s bare hands.
Opinion: Beginning in the 3rd century AD, early church fathers allegorized Scripture, resulting in the loss of Biblical prophecy in many denominations; and with this new theology came anti-Semitism on a grand scale. The church is said to have replaced Israel and be the beneficiary of God’s blessing to Israel.
It was/is one of Satan’s most pernicious lies.
Pope Francis’ wish, however, will be enforced when the final dictator steps onto the world stage.
“Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.” (Rev. 6:1-2)
Antichrist will come as a peace maker carrying a bow with no arrows. He will deceive the world because the church will have been raptured (1 Thess. 4:16-18) so that there will be no one to call him out.
He wears a victor’s crown and will bring all weapons of war in revived Rome under his control.
With prophecy distorted into men’s private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20), clergy like Pope Francis will be sought after for guidance, giving them tremendous power.
And one of them, a popular religious leader will be called on to bring worship to Antichrist:
“Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.” Revelation 13:11
It is that religious leader, the False Prophet, who sets up a “living” image of the Antichrist that must be worshiped. At this point, the Jewish people totally reject their would-be savior. In response, the Antichrist like Muhammad before him, will become obsessed with annihilating all the Jewish people during the second and last half of the Tribulation.
