Ancient prophecies are being fulfilled this month and every believer needs to understand what is happening because it will soon have a big impact on our lives.
The Apostle John saw a second beast rising up out of the earth with two horns like a lamb, yet he spoke like a dragon. This beast is also called the false prophet (Revelation 20:10) because he disguises himself as a man of God, but in reality he has nothing to do with God. He disguises himself as a lamb, but in reality he is a beast, a ruthless killer, an executioner of everyone who resists him.
One of the duties of the second beast is to lead a one-world religion, a false church, which is made in his image. Like him, it operates in the name of God while having nothing to do with God. In reality it will be a worldwide law enforcement agency whose duties include mandated worship of an image of the first beast and mandated participation in the beast financial system.
Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon. He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life. 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. 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, 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. 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. (Revelation 13:11-18).
Neville Johnson Prophecy:
Speaking in Session 1 of the 2015 Lancaster Prophetic Conference on August 12 2015, Neville Johnson said, “Last year I had an encounter with the Lord. It was a very powerful encounter. He said to me, ‘I want you to watch for something. When the present Pope will address the United Nations and Congress, it will be the beginning of the rise of the false church.’”
The complete 1:49-minute video of his message is shown at the bottom of this post. He starts discussing the false church at about the 1:14:30 mark.
If Neville Johnson heard correctly, the Pope’s meetings this month with the U.S. Congress and the United Nations will launch the formation of the global organization controlled by the second beast.
Transformation of the Pope:
Since Pope Francis is taking the lead role in the formation of this new organization, that makes him the leading candidate to be the second beast. At this point there are no other candidates on the horizon. He is not only the front-runner, he is the only runner. Time will tell whether he finishes what he is now starting or whether he passes the baton to someone else.
We are watching an amazing transformation happening before our eyes. The Pope is being transformed into either the second beast or at the very least the predecessor to the second beast. In either case, he is a monster, a deceiver, and an instrument of Satan because the organization he is now forming will be used to destroy many of God’s people and will require the whole world to worship the image of the first beast. We are witnessing the beginning of a transformation that will not stop until the whole world enters into the deep darkness described in the book of Revelation.
The Pope’s power is now being expanded far beyond any previous Pope, which is necessary to fulfill the role of the second beast in the new one-world government and the one-world economic system. He will be second only to the first beast. As he removes his mask and makes the transition from lamb to beast, he will begin to encounter resistance and therefore must have the power to mandate what he wants and to eliminate all opposition.
Why else would he need to make a speech to the U.S. Congress? No other Pope in history has ever done this before. I believe it is because his transformation begins this month.
As this process continues, the world will begin to see his true nature revealed, but by then it will be too late to stop him. He will also be given great supernatural power to perform signs, such as calling down fire from heaven in the presence of the first beast and giving breath to the image of the beast so that it will be able to speak. He will use these signs to deceive the world into believing he is from God and that the first beast actually is God.
His supernatural abilities are revealed in Revelation 13:13, which is an amazing coincidence since Pope Francis was elected to the papacy on 3/13/13. For more disturbing facts about Pope Francis, see my previous post: Seven More Disturbing Facts about Pope Francis.
Transformation of the Catholic Church:
The above statements about Pope Francis are offensive to many Catholics, but very soon that will be the least of their problems. Big changes are coming to the Catholic Church as they are being transformed into the one-world religion described in Revelation 13. The transformation started the day Pope Francis entered the papal office. For more details on that, see my previous post: Pope Francis Taking Unprecedented Actions to Unite World Religions. The transformation will continue until the scope of the Catholic Church includes every religion in the world.
We can expect to see many Catholics horrified by these changes, but the majority of them and the majority of the world will embrace this new one-world religion mistakenly believing it is the best way to achieve world peace. With that noble objective, the one-world religion will embrace all of the world’s religions, except for the trouble-makers, which includes all devout Jews and Christians. They will not be able to participate because doing so would require them to violate their faith in the one true God.
The transformations of the Pope and the Catholic Church require us to shift our thinking about them. Whatever they were in the past is not what they are going to be from now on. Although they have persecuted the true church throughout history, their past actions will pale in comparison to what they are going to do in the near future. This new one-world religion will become the number one persecutor of the true church.
Hollywood movies have given so much attention to the first beast, the antichrist, that just about everyone has heard of him. Meanwhile, the second beast has received far less attention, allowing him to arrive almost undetected, under the radar. However, the greatest danger to the church will not come from the first beast, but from the second beast because his global organization will be the enforcement agency that requires everyone to worship the image of the first beast and to take his mark.
In the words of the prophet Daniel, this end-time kingdom will be exceedingly dreadful and terrible, which means it will strike fear into the hearts of people to bring them under their control. This kingdom will devour the whole earth, tread it down, and crush it (Daniel 7:19-23).
Daniel described it as being different from every previous kingdom. It will be the first kingdom to ever succeed in ruling over the whole world (Revelation 13:3-4). For the first time in history the world will be united under one religion, one government, and one economic system. The second beast will play a key role in making all of that possible.
Papal Meeting Schedule:
As if all of this was not already creepy enough, it gets even creepier.
The day before Pope Francis speaks to Congress he is meeting with President Obama at the White House in what appears to be a very timely meeting of the two beasts. Their meeting lands precisely on Yom Kippur, the annual Jewish day of atonement, on September 23. The significance of this date cannot be over-emphasized, as shown here:
- Dr. Patricia Green saw President Obama making a pact with the devil on September 23, 2015. See my previous post: Obama Makes Pact with the Devil on September 23 2015.
- Paul Keith Davis saw major changes coming by September 23 2015. See my previous post: Paul Keith Davis: Something Major is Going to Happen by the Day of Atonement 2015.
- Sister Barbara from YouTube has been proclaiming prophetic warnings for the past several years. She concludes each of her videos with this statement: “I am proclaiming the acceptable year of the Lord until September 23, 2015, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.” See my previous post: Sister Barbara: The Clock Strikes Twelve.
- Neville Johnson shared a word from the Lord telling him after the last blood moon (September 28 2015) there is no more time. The judgment of God will not be delayed after that.
- Many movies and television shows have been connecting September 22 and 23 with catastrophes for many years. Renee Moses documented some of these in her YouTube videos.
- Last year the French Foreign Minister announced the world was 500 days from the start of climate chaos. Amazingly, the 500-day period ends on September 23 2015. Why would he make such a prediction?
- Earlier today, Marten Valk posted the following comment on this site: “Last Tuesday August 25 the Lord spoke to my wife: ‘This is the beginning of the end.’ To me the Lord told: ‘The end has been started.’ The same message to both of us.”
It all sounds very weird, but it is really happening.
The next day, September 24, Pope Francis addresses a joint session of the United States Congress promoting an agenda that ventures far beyond the role of spiritual leader and meddling in issues that formerly belonged only to leaders of government and the economy. He is expected to promote the following positions in his meetings with the President and with Congress:
- Support for illegal immigration into the United States
- Support for wealth re-distribution within the United States
- Support for global climate change legislation
- Opposition to religious extremism and violence
- Support for inclusiveness in economic opportunities
Pope Francis had even considered entering the United States by walking across the southern border to show his support for the millions of illegal immigrants who have crossed the border from Mexico. However, he later decided to address this issue in his meetings without the controversial border crossing.
Following his meetings with Congress and the President, Pope Francis will address the United Nations on September 25. While he is at the UN, he will also meet with the UN Secretary General.
As if all of this wasn’t weird enough already, his speech to the UN comes three days before the last of the four blood moons on September 28.
The True Church:
In 1973 David Wilkerson received a vision of two end-time super churches arising. I believe we are now seeing the beginning of the fulfillment of his vision. I shared his vision in my previous post, David Wilkerson: Two End-Time Super Churches Will Arise.
The good news is the rise of the false church is not the end of the story because there is also the rise of the true church at the same time.
Despite the dreadful tactics of the second beast, not everyone will submit. There will be many believers living during the rise of this beast system, including the 42-month reign of the antichrist. They will live by supernatural provision and by their own network of shared resources, off the grid. They will not only survive, but thrive as they bring in the greatest harvest of souls in history.
With over 1.25 billion members, the Roman Catholic Church will be one of the largest harvest fields. We can expect to see many Catholics become so disillusioned by the transformation of their Pope and their church they will flee from them to seek the Lord. Many of them will enter into the kingdom of God.
The rise of the false church will not be able to stop the true church, which will rise up in greater power and glory and strength than ever before. The growth of the true church will be much to the dismay of the false church as everyone who enters into the kingdom of God becomes an immediate problem for the false church.
The contrast between the two churches will continue to grow stronger as we get closer to the end. It will be the worst of times and the best of times. It will be the darkest of times and the lightest of times. Either way, the time is here.
