What do we expect of a Roman Pope? What do we expect of Pope Francis, the latest in a long line, and very popular? Do we expect Pope Francis to bolster the Roman Catholic Church, reviving what has seemed to be a dying religion for many years? Do we hope he will champion the battle against atheism, rallying all men to reconsider the place of religion in their life? Do we hope he will broker more understanding between religions, in the hope there will be peace on earth?
Pope Francis seems to be doing this, and more. He has enjoined himself to Islamic Mufftas, Buddhist Monks, the Jewish Sanhedrin and more, building relationship based on the value of religion in building morals and bringing order to our world.
Yet, at the same time, Pope Francis is broadening his moral vision as well. He's talked about leaving behind the limitations of the bible, which was written to a certain people at a certain time, and had is limitations. Indeed, he says, to put to much emphasis on doctrines from the bible or to be fundamentalist is a bad thing. He has indicated we need to rise above that, and embrace a religion that transcends old religions. He wants us all to embrace a 'new humanity' that comes from ones heart, because the human race is ready to evolve in a new, very spiritual and important way.
Given the progress Pope Francis has made in bringing religious leaders together, and raising the profile of religion in bringing peace and order, could it be his real enemy is in fact atheism and humanism? Perhaps. But it is equally the 'fundamentalists' who hold to their Scriptures that Francis is concerned about. He really does want us all to find a new way firearms together. A way that deifies and lifts man to a new place. His 'new humanity'.
It does seem that Pope Francis genuinely looms large on the world stage, so why not get on board? If he succeeds in bringing religion to the masses ; if he succeeds in bringing about his 'new humanity' ; if he succeeds in bringing his closet governance of much of the world out into the open to push forward the final aspects of a very grabs agenda, he will be formidable. And he will sound so reasonable as the noose tightens around the neck of his opponents: those fundamentalists! He will eventually make it clear that those who will not enter into an evolutionary step forward in religion, bringing great peace to mankind, are in fact hindering the great spiritual awakening and transcendence planned by Gods Of Old for mankind.
But will Christians world wide identify him as the Ante-Christ? Most likely not, because they have been brainwashed into looking for the fictional, Hollywood style Anti-Christ. To wake up to him, that will need to know the Scriptures. They will need to cling to Christ before everything else. And I mean the Christ who is to come as the scripture says, detailing his second coming in so many ways. Understand, please dear reader, the Ante-Christ (not Anti-Christ) comes as a deception in place of Christ, not as one who seems diametrically opposed to Christ. This is indeed one of the greatest deceptions of all time. He is there for all to see if we just understand what the Scriptures actually say, but most are so deceived they only look for a dark, Satanic figure.
Don't be caught looking for the Man of Sin to be a dark foreboding character. Look instead for a replacement Christ. When you see one arise that seems to resemble Christ, who gains much power and popularity, and unifies people and religions, then you have the one who resembles Christ without being him. You have the ante-type. You indeed have an Ante-Christ. Many have already passed, but one who is the pinnacle of this type is to come. I believe he's already here. Pope Francis is certainly an Ante-Christ. Whether he is The Ante-Christ talked of in scripture as the ultimate Ante-Christ, we'll see. But certainly, Christians world wide need some scales of deception to fall from their eyes if they are to recognise the Man Of Sin to come for who he really is. We all need to know the bible and what it says on this subject area if we are to see with unfettered vision things to come, to dismiss the false (ante-) Christ and to keep looking to heaven for the genuine Christ.
