The Vatican has agreed to a new treaty with Palestinian representatives that refers to them as the State of Palestine, which the Associated Press is reporting as formal recognition of Palestine as a state. A Vatican spokesman told AP, “Yes, it’s a recognition that the state exists.”
Vatican officials stressed that although the agreement was significant, it certainly did not constitute the Holy See’s first recognition of the State of Palestine. “We have recognized the State of Palestine ever since it was given recognition by the United Nations and it is already listed as the State of Palestine in our official yearbook,” Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said.
And by this, it becomes clear that it is not God who proclaims Judea as Israel, but it is the world including terrorists that decides for God that Judea is now Palestine.
The treaty, which concerns the activities of the Catholic Church in Palestinian territory, makes clear that the Holy See has switched its diplomatic recognition from the Palestine Liberation Organization to the State of Palestine. The agreement “aims to enhance the life and activities of the Catholic Church and its recognition at the judicial level,” said Monsignor Antoine Camilleri, the Vatican’s deputy foreign minister who led its six-person delegation in the talks.
Neither the Pope or his “foreign minister” are immune from God’s judgment in which Christ clearly proclaims, not on some minor occasion, but on the judgment of the nations:
“I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel. For they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.” (Joel 3:2)
Such a significant judgment includes all nations that support the division of Israel. “Land” here is land and “Israel” here is the people in their land, especially Israel’s very heart: Judea.
The biblical text is clear. In fact, it is so clear, that the Pope himself understands it well in which he had recognized this issue in 2013: “Pope Francis in his first Encyclical in November 2013 affirmed God’s everlasting covenant with the Jews: “We hold the Jewish people in special regard because their covenant with God has never been revoked, for ‘the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable’ (Rom 11:29).”
Fr. Cantalamessa, a renowned bible scholar and teacher, in his book The Mystery of Christmas explains what is meant by “never been revoked”:
“We share with the Jews the biblical certainty that God gave them the country of Canaan forever (Genesis 17:8, Isaiah 43:5, Jeremiah 32:22, Ezekiel 36:24, Amos 9:14). We know that the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable.”
And Cardinal Schoenborn from Austria stated:
“Christians should rejoice in Jews’ return to Israel as a fulfillment of biblical prophecy.” He stressed “the doctrinal importance to Christians of not only recognizing Jews’ connection to the land, but also ensuring that Christian identification with the Jewish Bible not lead to a ‘usurpation’ of Jewish uniqueness. Only once in human history did God take a country as an inheritance and give it to His chosen people.”
While the Pope in one occasion speaks wisely and officially speaks unwisely, this only reveals a double minded man who on one occasion attempts to serve God and on the other he serves the god of this world, for it is of the spirit of Antichrist to “divide the land for gain” (Daniel 11).
Pope Francis has repeatedly said, “a Christian cannot be an anti-Semite.”
Well, neither can a Christian who believes in dividing the land be pro-Semite.
I do not write this to attack Catholics, but to warn them of the Antichrist spirit that has entered the Vatican. What is happening in the Vatican is actually a fulfillment of what Pope Leo XIII actually warned about, in 1846, that the Vatican will one day become the seat of Antichrist:
Rome will lose the faith and become the Seat of the Antichrist… the Church will be in eclipse.
Pope Leo XIII also wrote:
In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the most holy Peter… they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety…
Faithful Catholics are going to have to make the choice to trust a pope like Leo XIII or Francis.
The permeation of Antichrist within the Catholic Church is to no surprise, since the homosexual infiltration within the Roman Church is immense, as Shoebat.com exposed the defense of a pedophile by Catholic priest Robert L. Kincl (AKA Fr. Bob Kincl).
Now, of course this does not mean that the Vatican is the Harlot of Babylon, but that it is harloting itself with the religion of the Antichrist. This idea that the Catholic Church is the Antichrist and the Harlot of Babylon is absurd.
As for Catholic critics regarding what I write here I say: choose ye between criticizing Leo or Francis, I am but a humble messenger.
I rest my case.
