Pope Francis and his Heresies: Is Rome the seat of the Antichrist?

On March 13th 2013, Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio from Argentina was elected as the new pope. He has been claimed to be the final pope of the St. Malachy prophecy which indicates these following details about the rule of the final pope (Bander, 1969):

“Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations, and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills [i.e. Rome] will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people.”

Even an Apparition of “Mary” has this to say about the Vatican in the last days at La Salette on September 19, 1846:

“Rome would lose the Faith and become the seat of the antichrist . . . The Church will be in eclipse.”

I do not always agree with the Marian Apparitions, but even a broken clock is always right twice a day, so I think it is interesting that this entity tells us this. Well where is the proof for all this? I will show you a few of the major heresies, some of which, has convinced even Roman Catholics that this pope is a heretic:

1) Pope Francis heretical ideas on Judaism

In the Cathedral of Buenos Aires, Argentina on April 15th 1998, Francis held an inter-religious service to honor deceased Jews.  Francis said to the Jews: “we are all brothers, because we have the seal of God in our hearts.” Really? The orthodox Jews do not recognize Jesus Christ as the Messiah, and certainly do not acknowledge His divinity. The Bible tells us this in John:

John 8:24
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.

So, if a person does not recognize Jesus as their God and Savior (Jude 1:25) then that person will die in their sins and bear the punishment for their sins which is eternal destruction and separation from God in a place called Hell (Romans 6:23; Matthew 25:46). Now, the pope in that quote clearly believes that the Jews and Christians serve the same God; I hope that you learned now that this is not technically the case, and the Jews require the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ just as anyone else (Romans 3:23).

On October 11th 2012 Francis gave Rabbi Abraham Skorka, a well-known supporter of homosexuality, an honorary degree at a Catholic university.  After the rabbi received the degree, he said: “We are waiting for the Messiah, but in order for him to come we have to prepare the land…”  It must be noted that this Rabbi rejected Jesus as the Messiah, right in front of the pope with no objection by the pope or the clergy in attendance. At Argentina, the pope visited the shrine of St. Cajetan on the 7th August 2013, he said, “Do you need to convince the other to become Catholic? No, no, no! Go out and meet him, he is your brother. This is enough,” which is, of course, contrary to what the Bible teaches, we are commanded by Jesus to take the gospel to all the corners of the Earth (Matthew 28:19, 20)!

2) Pope Francis and his heretical thoughts on Islam

On August 2nd 2005, Francis prayed before the dead body of the Muslim president of the Islamic Center of Argentina. The Imam leading the service was reciting passages of the Qur’an and praying that their prophet Muhammad blessed this deceased Islamic leader. Francis at the service said: “With my prayer I ask the creator, the most merciful to repay him for all the good he did.” Francis even goes on to call the Muslim a “believer” this obviously has no biblical merit as I pointed out earlier as he equates the God of the Bible with Allah. Allah according to the Qur’an has no son (Surah 6:101; Surah 4:171), Jesus never died on the cross; an impostor died and was made to look like Jesus according to the Qur’an. Allah even takes pride in himself that he deceived the Jews into believing that they killed Jesus (Surah 3:54; Surah 4:157, 158). So, this is most certainly not the same God of the Bible.

Roman Catholics who learned of this ceremony was outraged, even St. Thomas Aquinas once taught: “If anyone were to worship at the tomb of Muhammad, he would be deemed an apostate.” Francis by participating in the service for this Muslim leader, committed an offense that is not much different than worshiping at the tomb of Muhammad. In his Homily of July 8, 2013 Francis spoke to Muslims saying: “I also think with affection of those Muslim immigrants who this evening begin the fast of Ramadan, which I trust will bear abundant spiritual fruit.” “Spiritual Fruit,” really Pope Francis? Ramadan is nothing more than a pagan Arabic practice revived by Islam. In the Bible God, warns us to never use pagan practices to please Him, something that both Muslims and Roman Catholics are guilty of as they both use prayer beads which is also done by the Hindus and Buddhists:

Deuteronomy 12:30-32
Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.
Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God: for every abomination to the LORD, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.
What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

3) Pope Francis heretical ideas on false religions

On pg. 236 of Francis’ book, “On Heaven and Earth,” he says, “I am respectful of all new spiritual proposals… Surviving the passage of time is the major test of spiritual purity.” Wow Pope Francis, I suppose Hinduism and Buddhism are acceptable means to get to God now. Imagine in a few centuries even Beyism, Beyoncé’s new religion, will deliver souls to Heaven – and the Angels rejoiced! No, this is blatant heresy, it is a denial of Jesus Christ and His claim to be the only way to God:

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

1 Timothy 2:5
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

Francis, in an address on May 18th 2013 demanded, “… promote religious freedom for everyone, everyone!  Every man and every woman must be free in his or her profession of religion, whatever it may be (Vatican City, 2013).” This may sound good in the ears of uninformed people, but informed Christians know that Jesus never made it His primary duty to promote religious freedom, first and foremost He encourages us to spread the gospel throughout the world, so that everyone who trusts in Him may be saved:

Matthew 28:19, 20
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

4) Pope Francis even declares that Atheists go to Heaven!

In his book “On Heaven and Earth on pg. 12 and 13 he says, “I do not approach the relationship in order to proselytize, or convert the atheist; I respect him… nor would I say that his life is condemned, because I am convinced that I do not have the right to make a judgment about the honesty of that person… every man is the image of God, whether he is a believer or not.  For that reason alone everyone has a series of virtues, qualities, and a greatness of his own.”

During a sermon at the Vatican, he even boldly proclaims to the crowd, “The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone!”

In response to the pope’s statement Roy Speckhardt, executive director of the American Humanist Association, had this to say, “While humanists have been saying for years that one can be good without a god, hearing this from the leader of the Catholic Church is quite heartening.” A Vatican representative quickly retracted the statement by the pope and gave the biblical correct statement, however, this statement still gives us insight into how the pope personally views atheism and salvation. His statement is anti-biblical as I pointed out earlier and serves only to give atheists like Roy Speckhardt a false hope. Jesus is the only way to God (John 14:6) and we need to believe and trust in Him (Acts 16:31) and must live a daily repentant life in service to God:

Matthew 16:24-26
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

5) Pope Francis’ relaxed ideas on sin

Within the book, “Pope Francis: Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio: His Life in His Own Words,” the pope says, “I often say that the only glory we have, as Saint Paul says, is that of being sinners.” Wow, since when did Paul indicated that it is an honor to be a sinner? Paul actually says that sin has placed all creation in bondage and great agony (Romans 8:22). Francis further says, “That’s why, for me, sin is not a stain I need to clean,” which is once again a very heretical statement:

Romans 3:23
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

On the other hand, we learn that the pope’s idea of sin is very distorted by this statement on pg 129 of the same book, “… it is a problem of sin.  For four years Argentina has been living a sinful existence because it has not taken responsibility for those who have no food or work.” So, actual “sin” in Francis’ mind is having “no food or work,” in God’s eyes such matters are not to be our primary focus:

Matthew 6:33, 34
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

6) Francis’ acceptance of Homosexual relations

Francis, while he was in Argentina has been proven to be open-minded to idea of same-sex relationships, however, he is against the idea of calling a same-sex union marriage as the Bible defines it. On pg. 117 of the book, “On Heaven and Earth” he says, “When the head of the Government of the City of Buenos Aires, Mauricio Macri, did not appeal the judge’s opinion right away authorizing a [same-sex] wedding.  I felt that I had something to say, to inform; I saw myself with an obligation to state my opinion.  It was the first time in eighteen years as bishop that I criticized a government official.  If you analyze the two declarations that I formulated, at no time did I speak about homosexuals nor did I make any derogatory reference toward them… Macri told me that these were his convictions; I respected him for that, but the head of the Government does not have to transfer his personal convictions to law.  In no moment did I speak disrespectfully about homosexuals…” Such words does not echo the words that one would expect from a true man of God, concerning the issue of homosexuality:

Leviticus 18:22
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

7) The overwhelming support of Freemasons for Pope Francis

The Grand Masters of the Grand Orient Lodges of Italy and Argentina have openly congratulated Pope Francis when he was elected as pope. Why would they do this for a pope, unless that pope is a member of the Freemasons. The Freemasons are very open to the idea of all religions leading to God, which is clearly the same view of this pope. Below you will see a photo of the pope showing a masonic hand gesture to the camera. It should be no shock to us that Napoleon, Stalin and Albert Pike who was a 33rd degree mason show this same masonic gesture. There are some that would object to this point by claiming the pope is anti-freemasonry. Not so fast, if such was truly the case this pope would have to expect a very short reign like the 33 day reign of Pope John Paul I. Note well, that the number 33 is an important masonic number.

pope gives freemason signstalin, napoleon, all freemasons

I think that it is ironic that Peter, the so-called first pope has this to say about heretics and false prophets:

2 Peter 2:1-3
But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

Heresy and unbiblical ideas of popes is certainly not new to the history Roman Catholicism. Below is a list of some of the worst popes in history recorded in the book, “The Bad Popes” written by E. R. Chamberlin (Chamberlin, 1986):

1) Pope Stephen VI (896–897), who had his predecessor Pope Formosus exhumed, tried, de-fingered, briefly reburied, and thrown in the Tiber.

2) Pope John XII (955–964), who gave land to a mistress, murdered several people, and was killed by a man who caught him in bed with his wife.

3) Pope Benedict IX (1032–1044, 1045, 1047–1048), who “sold” the Papacy.

4) Pope Boniface VIII (1294–1303), who is lampooned in Dante’s Divine Comedy.

5) Pope Urban VI (1378–1389), who complained that he did not hear enough screaming when Cardinals who had conspired against him were tortured.

6) Pope Alexander VI (1492–1503), a Borgia, who was guilty of nepotism and whose unattended corpse swelled until it could barely fit in a coffin.

7) Pope Leo X (1513–1521), a spendthrift member of the Medici family who once spent 1/7 of his predecessors’ reserves on a single ceremony.

8) Pope Clement VII (1523–1534), also a Medici, whose power-politicking with France, Spain, and Germany got Rome sacked.

If you are a Roman Catholic and reading this, please turn to the Bible and not man’s traditions. Listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd and not this Idol Shepherd (Zechariah 11:17):

Revelation 18:4, 5
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

The Alien, UFOs and Nephilim Conspiracy

The Alien and UFO phenomena are another part of the great deception that the Bible prophesied will fall upon humanity in the End Times. The disciples came to Jesus asking Him what will be the signs of His coming and Jesus opened with a warning:

Matthew 24:4
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

Jesus goes on describing signs and events and emphasized again:

Matthew 24:24
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

So, it is clear that the End Times will be characterized with widespread deception. Jesus goes on to make an interesting statement:

Matthew 24:37
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

The common interpretation of the above verse is that day-to-day activities and even the rise of diverse sinful practices will occur before Jesus’ return. However, one of the most alarming things of Noah’s day was the rise of the Nephilim, a hybrid race, that emerged from the union of the fallen angels with human women:

Genesis 6:1-4
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all they chose.
And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

Yes, these giants, the Nephilim, were also around after the flood as Genesis 6:4 indicates the same is true for this verse in Numbers below:

Numbers 13:33
And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and we were in their sight.

These Nephilim are the ones who are the true driving force behind the alien conspiracy. Remember these are the children of the fallen angels, and as their children they are gifted with the vast knowledge of the fallen angels. The Bible touches on Satan and his minions’ offspring in several parts of the Bible even in Genesis:

Genesis 3:15
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Jesus’ parable of the “Wheat and Tares” can be interpreted to represent this same idea of Satan planting his own children among humanity:

Matthew 13:24-30
Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

wheat and tares are identical
An interesting thing to note is that wheat and tares are virtually identical in appearance. The above scripture therefore subtly tell us that Satan and his minions’ offspring will be identical to us. So, the Nephilim will not appear to be giants anymore they will look identical to us and this fact corroborates the genetic breeding program that alien abductees claim to witness on UFOs. The abductees report that the aliens are actively attempting to look more and more like us and are actually nearing the end of their genetic program.
As L. A. Marzulli in the video above indicates, the end game of the alien and UFO phenomena is to deliver an alien gospel – that these aliens came from some distant galaxy and created life on our planet and that they are our creators. This is essentially the message that is filtered through the alien abductees and the New Age channelers in the New Age movement. As Jesus said to us all, do not be deceived by this and do not be deceived by the miraculous feats that these aliens may perform. Above all do not accept the gospel that the aliens are pushing, as Paul warns:
human skull found with horns

Galatians 1:6-9
I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have received, let him be accursed.
As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

The Mark of The Beast and In The Name of Allah with Chuck Missler

In the video above, Dr. Chuck Missler, a well respected Bible teacher, explains the idea that the title Bis’m Allah or Bismillah on the Shahadatan (band on Muslims foreheads) may actually be the Mark of the Beast as described in Revelation 13. This theory is not new, in fact, quite a number of Bible scholars have risen up like Walid Shoebat and Joel Richardson, who insist that the Islamic religion may have a strong role to play in the End Times. Especially, with the prophecies of the Mahdi or 12th Imam. The Bible says that the Antichrist will behead anyone who refuses to take his mark as hinted to below:

Revelation 20:4
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgement was given unto them: and I saw souls of them that were beheaded for witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

mark of the beast bismillah
It’s interesting to note that that the signature punishment for infidels (non-Muslims) according to Islamic Sharia law is beheading, which is based on the following Surah (or Chapter) of the Koran:

Surah 47:4
So when you meet those who disbelieve [in battle], strike [their] necks until, when you have inflicted slaughter upon them, then secure their bonds, and either [confer] favor afterwards or ransom [them] until the war lays down its burdens. That [is the command]. And if Allah had willed, He could have taken vengeance upon them [Himself], but [He ordered armed struggle] to test some of you by means of others. And those who are killed in the cause of Allah – never will He waste their deeds.

Sharia law also denies citizenship to anyone who is non-Muslim and establishes limits on the buying and selling of goods. These all seem to be consistent with the description of the End Time scenario as outlined by the Book of Revelation in the Bible (Revelation 13:16, 17).

Personally, I think Islam may indeed have a role but it may only be just one possible avenue for the Antichrist to rise from. In Revelation 12:3, there is a description of Satan with 7 heads and crowns on each head, symbols which makes him eerily similar to the Hindu depiction of Shesha, the king of the nagas (snake deities):

Revelation 12:3
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

A picture of Shesha and the second person of the Trimurti (Hinduism’s equivalent to the Trinity), Vishnu, is shown in the picture below:

Vishunu ISCON

Shesha, who is often depicted as a seven headed serpent with seven crowns, is famous in Hinduism for his role in an event called the “Churning of the Ocean” where the participants try to make themselves immortal. The very same idea that Satan presented in the garden of Eden: “Ye shall not surely die” and “Ye shall be as gods”. Another thing to note is that Vishnu, who is in every way another Christ (Antichrist), is often shown sitting relaxed on Shesha, as one who has received authority – in Revelation we know that the Antichrist will be given power from the dragon (Revelation 13:1-8).

My point is that Satan has been preparing himself, planting himself and several Antichrist figures in the false religions as suggested by 1st John 4:3:

1 John 4:3
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.

The Bible teaches that the only time the world will know the true Antichrist will be when God removes the “He (Holy Spirit) who restrains” as described in 2nd Thessalonians 2:6-7. I think it is reasonable to say that the restrainer is indeed the Holy Spirit, as the scriptures describes the Antichrist as the ‘man of iniquity’ or ‘man of sin’ (2 Thessalonians 2:3), only the Holy Spirit has power over sin (Galatians 5:17–18), in fact, 2 Thessalonians 3:2, 3 confirms that it is indeed God who does the restraining:

2 Thessalonians 2:6-7
And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he (Antichrist) will be revealed.
For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he (Holy Spirit) who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way.

2 Thessalonians 3:2, 3
And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith.
But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

In the same picture chosen above for “Bismillah” we see the image of a “serpent” which Chuck Missler highlights in the video. In the same image we see what also appears to be a “pole” or “post.” You may ask, “What is my point for highlighting this to you?” Well Islam teaches that Jesus Christ never died. Jesus Himself says:
Brass Serpent on Cross

John 3:14
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up.

Jesus of course refers to the brass serpent raised on a pole by Moses in Numbers 21:9. I find it amazing that the “serpent” of this rendition of Bismillah is off the “pole” almost as if to mock it. Accident? Coincidence? I am not sure, but I will tell you that anyone who studies linguistics will know that languages in their basic and original forms were represented by images. It could therefore be considered that “Bismillah” at it heart truly denies the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross, just as Islam claims that Jesus did not died on the cross (Surah 4:156-158).
