The Christian Post  did a report back in 2016 about a gathering that would include the Roman Catholic Pope Francis who would speak (and did speak) by way of video at an “historic” Christian gathering called “Together 2016” in Washington D.C in July. Folks it is absolutely imperative that you understand that you are being primed for a grand deception beyond anything that you have ever seen before. The Lord Jesus Christ gave us all a warning when he walked this earth almost 2000 years ago, and it is up to you whether you believe him or not.

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. ”  (Matthew 24:3-5)

I can say without apology that the Roman Catholic Pope Francis is a deceiver. I can say without apology that the Roman Catholic Pope Francis preaches a counterfeit gospel that has the curse of God upon it, according to the scriptures (Galatians 1:8-10). Once again I remind you, that I speak as a former Roman Catholic, who was set free from the deception of that false religious system in 1989.

We are talking about a man (Pope Francis) who has openly preached that if you do not love Mother Mary, and pray the rosary, then she will not give you the Son!

Folks that is absolute insanity. We are talking about a man who traveled to Mexico in 2016 to worship the idol of “Our Lady of Guadalupe.” The Catholic Pope rode around in his Pope-mobile in Chiapas, Mexico, which was the very same town where true Christians were being severely persecuted for their faith. In the town of Chiapas, Mexico, true born-again Christians had all of their possessions confiscated, including their houses and land, and then they were tossed into jail! What was their crime? They simply refused to convert to Roman Catholicism! The Pope was riding around in his Pope-mobile and being adored by millions, while those precious Christians suffered greatly. The Pope did absolutely NOTHING to help them, and he said absolutely NOTHING about it either. The mainstream media did not report about it either. If it were not for a few Christian news reports, I would have never heard about it either. This is an absolute disgrace, and it is very telling about the times that we live in. Are you getting a better understanding about the deception that Jesus Christ warned us about folks?

Growing up as a Roman Catholic I was taught that I was “born again” when I was baptized as a little infant. That is just one of many of the counterfeit teachings of the church of Rome. I was truly born again at the age of 36, and that is when the light went on inside my spiritual heart. That is when I came to know the “light of the world” and his name is Jesus Christ (John 8:12). When I was truly SAVED, I knew, that I knew, that I knew, that Jesus Christ was sent down from Heaven above, and I knew that he died for my sins. I knew that he rose from the dead, and I knew that he was GOD in the flesh, who partook of our humanity for the very purpose of redeeming our souls. Oh what a joy it is to truly KNOW the Lord Jesus Christ. When I was saved out of the Roman Catholic system, I knew that all of my years of religious ceremonies did nothing towards the salvation of my soul. I remembered all of the religious vestments that the Roman Catholic priests, and bishops used to wear, and I knew that they did not even know the Lord for themselves! How did I come upon this knowledge? It was the Holy Spirit of God who revealed these things to me. I knew that the Roman Catholic system was a religious monster, that has deceived literally billions of souls over the centuries, with their false teachings, and that is sure to continue, until the Lord returns.

This meeting in Washington D.C. was called “Together 2016” and it is just another ecumenical step toward complete submission to the Roman Catholic system. The “Synagogue of Satan” is a spiritual group of people who claim to “know God” but in reality, are diametrically opposed to him.

Have you ever noticed that the so called “Christian apologists” of our day NEVER touch on the topic of Roman  Catholicism? Oh they will talk and write about the modern day cults such as the “Mormons” and the Watchtower Society, and their “Jehovah’s Witnesses,” but they NEVER speak against the monster system of Roman Catholicism.

When the topic of Roman Catholicism is brought up, you better be prepared to listen to some of the slickest double talking, that you have ever heard in your life. The “lineup” of speakers at this “Together 2016” event included Ravi Zacharias, Luis Palau, Josh McDowell, Francis Chan, Ronnie Floyd among many others. So all of those speakers who eventually showed up were there to listen to the Roman Catholic Pope speak by way of video. This is truly scary stuff folks!

The system of Roman Catholicism at the Council of Vatican II, upheld over 100 anathemas (curses) from the Council of Trent, against people who do not believe their false teachings. Keep that in mind as the image of Pope Francis appears on the huge television screen in Washington D.C. Would it not have been funny if the Master of ceremonies started reciting those curses to the throng that is gathered. Would it not be funny if the words of Jesus Christ were spoken, where he warned against calling any man Father on this earth? 

There is a Roman Catholic curse upon you if you do not believe that the little “consecrated wafer host”, becomes the actual body and blood of Jesus Christ, after the Catholic priest does his thing at the Catholic Mass. The church of Rome believes that the little “communion host” is Jesus Christ. After the Mass is over the “leftover” consecrated “hosts” are put inside a small brass tabernacle inside the church, which is opened with a large brass key. I was a Roman Catholic altar boy, and I can still hear the distinctive clicking sound of that tabernacle door as the priest would close it. After the priest closed that door, he would pull the strings of a small curtain that covered that same tabernacle, and he would kneel before it before he walked away. Why did he do that? Because he believed that it was Jesus Christ siting inside that small tabernacle. Folks that is deception, and I speak out against this stuff, for the sake of precious souls. How could I hold back and say nothing, when I know that the real Jesus Christ SAVED my soul from that very same deception? There is also a curse upon you if you do not believe that the sacrifice of the Roman Catholic Mass can be offered up, for both the living and the dead. Folks I continually bring these things to you attention, because the church of Rome teaches that their Roman Catholic Mass satisfies the justice of God, for sins committed against him. That one teaching is enough to make the Catholic gospel a counterfeit gospel. I got saved through simple FAITH in the Lord Jesus Christ, and I know that the Lord Jesus Christ satisfied the justice of God on the cross almost 2000 years ago! I do not need a Roman Catholic priest to satisfy the justice of God for me through their Mass! In fact every Roman Catholic priest needs to get SAVED for themselves, and that would include the Pope who spoke to Christians, at this event in Washington D.C. next month.

The Roman Catholic Mass is performed on a daily basis in Catholic churches all over the world, for people who have been dead for many years. Why? Because they believe that there are millions of souls in a place called Purgatory, whose time there can be shortened, through the sacrifice of Catholic Masses, offered here on earth. Folks once again I must say to you, that there is no such place as Purgatory, and there has NEVER been a place called Purgatory. Can you imagine the billions of dollars in donations over the centuries, that was spent on “Mass cards” so that a priest might offer up a Mass for peoples dead loved ones? Oh what a hellish deception the teaching of Purgatory is!

I must tell you that people by the millions have been robbed of their souls, because they never heard the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I would have been numbered among them, and I would have ended up in Hell for sure, except for the grace and mercy of God. Oh, what a battle for souls is raging in the world as Satan continues to blind the minds of the deceived while few are willing to warn them.

Do you think for one minute that the Lord is not aware of what is going on in the modern day church world? Of course the Lord knows what is going on, and he knows every man and woman who is holding back the truth to please man.

Keep in mind what the Jewish apostle Paul said regarding those who preach a false gospel, and those who seek to please men!

“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.”  (Galatians 1:8-10)

The modern day church is filled with “ministers” who are nothing more than man pleasers, who seek to advance their own ministries. Many of those ministers have joined hands with the false system of Roman Catholicism, and many more will follow also. If all went according to plans, the Catholic Pope Francis appeared on one of those jumbo television screens, to the adoring screams of the deceived, while the modern day famous ministers and apologists, said nothing. Should we be surprised by all of this? Keep in mind that the world most famous evangelist Billy Graham has been working hand in hand with the church of Rome since the 1950’s (at least). Whenever a Roman Catholic would go forward to “receive Christ” at Graham’s “altar call,” they would fill out a card, and be sent back to their own Roman Catholic church. If a Jewish person would come forward at the altar call, they would be sent back to their synagogue. Folks this is something that has been going on for decades now. 

The Roman Catholic system holds fast to the same counterfeit teachings as they did when they tortured, slaughtered and murdered countless Christians who stood against her false gospel, during the Middle Ages. Folks you cannot be serving the true and living God, while torturing and murdering people. That is the absolute height of deception. The millions of Christians who were murdered by the system of Roman Catholicism ended up in Heaven, while the Romish murderers ended up in Hell. That is the absolute God honest truth. If the system of Rome is still preaching the same counterfeit gospel in our modern day, as it did then, do you think that the Christians should be walking side by side with them. If you answer YES to that question, then I can assure you, that you are walking in OPPOSITION to the Lord Jesus Christ himself. 

Pope Francis is still being addressed by the title of “Holy Father” and “His Holiness” by millions in the world today, but in the eyes of Jesus Christ himself, he is nothing more than a deceived and lost soul. There is blood upon the hands of that man Pope Francis, (Jorge Bergoglio) and there is blood upon the hands of those who join hands with that counterfeit system also.

” But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. ”  (Matthew 23:8-10)

Do you believe the words of Jesus Christ which he spoke in the passage above, or do you choose to reject them, and believe that the Pope is the “Holy Father”?

Do you believe that the Roman Catholic Mass satisfies the justice of God for sins committed against him, or do you believe that Jesus Christ satisfied the justice of God on the cross?

Do you believe that the Roman Catholic Mass can be offered for both the LIVING and also the DEAD souls in Purgatory, or do you believe that the BELIEVER has already been JUSTIFIED and SAVED from the WRATH of God?

Do you believe that the believer has already been RECONCILED back to God, through the DEATH of Jesus Christ, and that there is no need for the “sacrifice of the Mass” to satisfy the justice of God? God believes that, so you should too!

“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”  (Romans 5:6-10)

Folks Jesus Christ gave us the warning, but very few preachers in the modern day church are warning their flocks about the counterfeit system of Roman Catholicism. You can expect this Pope to be heralded and praised, again and again in the near future, while the modern day preachers remain silent. In an earlier ARTICLE, I wrote about Shimon Peres of Israel and how he desired the Roman Catholic Pope Francis to be the leader of a United Nations of Religions.

Think about that for a few minutes folks. Shimon Peres rejects Jesus as the Messiah (Christ), and yet he wants this Roman Catholic Pope Francis, to be the leader of a “United Nations of Religions”. The scriptures warn us about all people who do not believe that Christ (Messiah) has come in the flesh, and declare them to be of an ANTICHRIST spirit. Shimon Peres does not believe that Jesus is Messiah, Lord or the Son of God, along with millions of other Jews, and millions of  Muslims, and millions of Hindus and many other religions. According to the scriptures, Shimon Peres would be of the ANTICHRIST spirit, that the Jewish apostle John warned us about! Do you understand now where this whole thing is heading? The spirit of ANTICHRIST is the spirit which drives the “Synagogue of Satan.”

“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.”  (1 John 2:22)

“And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”  (1 John 4:3)

“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.”  (2 John 1:7)

You can brush aside these warnings if you like, but God will always honor his word. You are either for Christ or you are against him. Eternal life is found in only one place, and that is in the person of Jesus Christ. The present Pope Francis has spoken out against the evangelization of the Jewish people, which is the exact opposite of what Jesus Christ and his disciples did. Jesus Christ is God, and his word will stand forever. Jesus and his disciples evangelized the Jewish people, and he made it clear that the Jews who did not believe in Him would die in their sins. If a person dies in their sins they will ultimately be damned to an eternal Hell. That word still stands true today, and it will stand true until the DAY when Jesus returns!

“Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come. Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come. And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. ”  (John 8:21-24)

Jesus Christ told the UNBELIEVING Jews that IF God WERE their father, they would have LOVED Him! The Father was the one who sent Jesus Christ to the earth in the first place!

” I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. ”  (John 8:37-47)

The bottom line is this ladies and gentlemen. You are either DEAD or ALIVE in the sight of Almighty God. If you have been truly born again of the Spirit and SAVED by the grace and mercy of God, then you HAVE eternal LIFE in Jesus Christ. If this has not happened to you, then I encourage you to turn to the Lord Jesus Christ for the salvation of your soul. This is where the rubber meets the road, and this is the difference between FALSE and COUNTERFEIT religion, and true salvation in Jesus Christ. Without a true and biblical faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the WRATH of God abides upon YOU, and every other person who rejects Jesus Christ. If a person dies in that spiritual condition, then it does not matter one iota what fine words are spoken over the person inside the casket at the funeral parlour. That person inside the casket simply died in their sins, after rejecting the eternal life which is is found in Jesus Christ alone.

“If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”  (1 John 5:9-13)

” And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.”  (1 John 5:19-20)

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”  (John 3:36)
