15 And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six. (Revelation 13:15-18)
On October 24, 2011, the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, produced a document titled “TOWARDS REFORMING: THE INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL AND MONETARY SYSTEMS IN THE CONTEXT OF GLOBAL PUBLIC AUTHORITY.” This document, issued with full papal approval, calls for a world political authority and a world economic authority.
According to the Catholic News Service, the document says that the current global economic crises has “revealed selfishness, collective greed and the hoarding of goods on a great scale” and calls for a “supranational authority that is “needed to place for the common good at the center of international economic activity.” The major step in this would be to reform the “international monetary system in a way that involves developing countries” through the creation of a “central world bank.”
The document points out that Herr Ratzinger (Benedict XVI) teaches that the crisis “obliges us to re-plan our journey, to set ourselves new rules and to discover new forms of commitment, to build on positive experiences and to reject negative ones. The crisis thus becomes an opportunity for discernment, in which to shape a new vision for the future. In this spirit, with confidence rather than resignation, it is appropriate to address the difficulties of the present time.” What exactly does this mean? Herr Ratzinger is putting the concept of Catholic social justice on steroids. The Roman church has long supported programs, usually its own, that would bring about economic “justice” to the world in order to form the one thousand years of peace it believes would have to take place prior to the return of Christ. The only way for this to happen is, through human efforts alone, establish a society under the Roman pope in which everyone shares all things thus making all people happy and peaceful. Unfortunately, that concept is nothing but a pipe dream doomed to failure. All man-made attempts at establishing utopias have failed miserably. Without God in the picture, no solution will succeed.
The document also proposes “taxation measures on financial transactions, forms of recapitalization of banks with public funds that make support conditional on ‘virtuous’ behavior aimed at developing the real economy and more effective management of financial shadow markets that are largely uncontrolled today.” Herr Ratzinger himself “expressed the need to create a world political authority.” This desire should be no surprise to anyone. The Roman church since its inception has called itself the one true church and only through the Roman church could the world be made better and that salvation could come.
But in this case, the Romanists are playing right into the hand of Satan. As the last days near, Satan knows he has little time left to bring about mass deception in hopes of preventing the ultimate victory of Christ. The more the world spins out of control, the more the people will clamor for one, supreme ruler in order to solve all the problems of the planet. Thus, the Anti-Christ will rise. A one world government and economy will be established. A man known as the false prophet will control a one world religion, a religion that is man centered instead of Christ centered. What better to build this one world religion upon but the church of Rome!
Where will the Anti-Christ rule from? The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits (Revelation 17:9b). Who is this woman? And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality, 5 and on her forehead a name was written, a mystery, “BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. (Revelation 17:1-5) There is but one answer, Rome and through the Roman church. Rome is identified by the seven hills. The priests, bishops, cardinals and pope of Roman church clad themselves in scarlet and purple. Pagan Rome sent many early Christians to their deaths for their beliefs. The church of Rome sent many of the reformers to their deaths, their only offense being proclaiming the truth about Rome and the Truth of God. The Anti-Christ will rule from Rome and will be fully supported by the one world religion based upon the Roman church! There is no doubt that this document is the latest move by Rome to pave the way for the Anti-Christ.
When I first reported on the issuance of this document, I was told by a Catholic that “a message from a Vatican office does not imply the Pope. He only has authority over matters of faith.” Really? Does this mean that Herr Ratzinger was totally oblivious in the preparation of this document? Does this mean he had no input? Ratzinger is quoted throughout the document. The department which issued the document is the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace! The word “pontifical” shows that these men who are on the council answer to the pope. These were not a bunch of rogue cardinals and bishops preparing this behind Ratzinger’s back. In the case of this document, a message coming from a Vatican office does imply the pope. All articles I have seen on this quote the pope, are full of statements such as “the pope says,” “the pope teaches,” “the pope believes,” etc. Herr Ratzinger’s fingerprints are all over this document. His followers can claim otherwise all they want, but that does not hide the truth about this. This is from Ratzinger himself.
The only way anything in this document will be established is through the coming Anti-Christ, the false prophet and the Roman pope. And it will fail and will be judged when Christ returns.
Charles Spurgeon was quite correct when he wrote “I question if hell can find a more fitting instrument within its infernal lake than the Church of Rome is for the cause of mischief. And your church will in its measure, be the same if bereft of the Spirit.”
Catholics, it is time to wake up. Your leader is at the least an extreme socialist if not a Marxist. You will not find salvation through the words spoken and the traditions established by 267 fallible, wretched sinners posing as the head of the church and calling themselves the holy father. Salvation is through Christ alone through faith.
