Pope Francis on Monday called for the implementation of a “two-state solution” to solve the Israel-Palestinian Arab conflict. His comments came during a meeting with Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas at the Vatican.
“Particular attention was reserved for the status of Jerusalem, underlining the importance of recognizing and preserving its identity and the universal value of the holy City for the three Abrahamic religions,” the statement said, according to Wafa. more …
Opinion: On the wild assumption that Francis read the Bible once or twice, and has heard that those who curse Israel (Genesis 12:3) will be cursed, it makes me wonder if he is either poking a finger in God’s eye, or he really believes that his authority trumps Scripture.
Has Francis has forgotten that after embracing Mahmoud Abbas on January 12, 2017 …
… and setting up the first Palestinian embassy on European soil on January 14, 2017…
… his church was just 1.5 years away from a massive sex abuse/homosexual scandal involving an Archbishop with very close ties to the Vatican.
“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem” Zechariah 12:2.
Francis has a great desire to control Jerusalem and expressed his disappointment in Donald Trump’s decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem:
“I wish to make a heartfelt appeal to ensure that everyone is committed to respecting the status quo of the city, in accordance with the relevant resolutions of the United Nations,” the pope said, speaking during his weekly General Audience at the Vatican.
In his appeal, Pope Francis said, “Jerusalem is a unique city, sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims who venerate the holy places of their respective religions, and has a special vocation to peace” without acknowledging that the Koran makes no mention of Jerusalem, and there is no historical evidence of Ishmael being the father of Islam.
“And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it” Zechariah 12:3.
In the final war of mankind, Zechariah’s prophecy was echoed by Daniel 11:45 …
“ And he (Antichrist) shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the glorious holy mountain …”
… and Luke 21:24:
” … And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”
The times of the Gentiles ends with the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ, Revelation 19:11:16:
And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:
KING OF KINGS AND
LORD OF LORDS.
