DANIEL 11: PAPAL SUPREMACY
DANIEL 11: PAPAL SUPREMACY
I believe Verse 40 has to do with Islam joining forces against the “West” in an all out war to defeat the “Christian” West. I believe that the “king of the North” will be the Western “Christian” powers under the spiritual control of the Catholic Church. That they will “invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood.” Many Muslims believe that we, the West, are already “sweeping through them like a flood”. That is one reason why so many terrorist attacks are pointed towards the West.
I believe the plans have already been drawn up by the Vatican to place a temple for the pope on the holy mount in Jerusalem. The nation of Israel, I believe, has invited the pope to set up residence there in order to keep the peace. I believe that even the Muslims have accepted this plan. Both Israel and the Palestinians believe that the Temple Mount should be placed under religious and international control and not political.
This report is from U.S. News & World Report, May 11, 1998. “There is strong support among the prelates, for example, for strengthening the church’s efforts under John Paul II to reunite the Christian churches and to improve relations with other religions. ‘The world will never believe if we are divided’ says Cardinal Francis George of Chicago. Church leaders in the years ahead, he says, ‘will have to look at the divisions among Christ’s disciples’ and seek to resolve them. This suggests that the strongest papal candidate may be one with solid credentials in ecumenical affairs…”.
And what about all those ceremonies? Why are they needed? Did God command us to have all those ceremonies that our churches are involved in? No! Listen to what Napoleon said: “Is it not a fact that the Catholic religion appeals more strongly to the imagination by the pomp of its ceremonies than by the sublimity of its doctrines? When you want to arouse enthusiasm in the masses you must appeal to their eyes.” The Age of Napoleon: Durant This is what Revelation 13 is all about, the church becoming more powerful than God in our lives. That is what happens when mankind gives its allegiance to the church instead of to God. We are to have no other gods before us. We are to make no allegiance to any other power in the universe. We are only to give our blood for Jesus, who gave His blood for us. “For My own sake—Yes, for My own sake!—I’m doing it; indeed, how can I be profaned? Furthermore, I won’t give My glory to another.” Isaiah 48:11.
It is the Catholic church and it’s prostitutes, the Protestants, that will force the world to bow down at its feet and worship it. All who refuse will be persecuted, jailed, imprisoned, tortured and killed.
