Pope tells United Nations to push wealth redistribution–a sign of Revelation 13 & 17?

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and Vatican City’s Pope Francis


The head of the UN met with Pope Francis in Vatican City today:

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Pope Francis told U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Friday that the world body must do more to help the poor and should encourage the “legitimate redistribution” of wealth.

Francis, who since his election last year has often called for significant changes to economic systems, made his comments in an address to Ban and heads of many U.N. agencies meeting in Rome…

A contribution to equitable development could be made “both by international activity aimed at the integral human development of all the world’s peoples and by the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the State …,” he said…

In the past 14 months since his election, Francis has issued several strong attacks on the global economic system…

Ban also renewed an invitation for the pope to address the United Nations in New York.  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/sns-rt-us-pope-un-20140509,0,5167939.story

A couple of days ago, the UN Secretary General claimed that the UN and the Vatican had the “same goals” (see UN states it has the ‘same goals’ as the Vatican).  This seemed to be a reference to the Pope’s inter-faith and ecumenical agendas as well as his wealth distribution calls.

What does Pope Francis want?

Well shortly after becoming pontiff he declared:

“Oh, how I would like a poor Church, and for the poor” (see Pope Francis: Do his comments about the poor show that he intend to fulfill biblical and Catholic prophecies about the final Antichrist?).

Is it possible that he is suggesting that since his church hold enormous wealth in bank accounts, land, art, and jewels, that perhaps he intends to distribute some of this wealth (see Pope Francis claims he wants his church to be poor and help the poor)?


However the Vatican still has its vast wealth (and I have visited Vatican City twice since he became pontiff) and has not actually walked the pontiff’s talk.

But this may well change.

What if Pope Francis sells off some of the vast treasures (such as jewels and land) of the Vatican and/or give significant amounts of money/land away to the poor?  If he does that, this will likely greatly enhance the pedophile-damaged image of the Church of Rome for the media and many others around the world. This will enhance the appeal of the religion that Rome will promote.

Could it be that the Antichrist use some of the wealth of the Vatican to support certain nations/leaders in the world? I expect this, as it seems to be likely and is consistent with the following scriptures:

1…”Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, 2 with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”…9 “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits…18:3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.” (Revelation 17:1-2,9; 18:3)

The Church of Rome has a lot of worldly wealth–it is a version of that church that is being discussed above in Revelation.  For my Catholic readers, I want to make it clear that consistent with biblical AND Roman Catholic prophecies, I believe that the final pontiff will be a type of antipope who will betray the Church of Rome (Revelation 17) and be the final antichrist (cf. 1 John 4:1-3; Revelation 13:11-15).

The Bible tells of two ‘new world orders.’  One, that it condemns as part of the end time Babylonian system (Revelation 13:16-18; 17; 18) and the true one that occurs after the return of Jesus Christ and the establishment of the millennial reign on earth (something that Pope Francis’ church has declared is a doctrine of antichrist).

While the world seems to be at least a little bit impressed by their cooperation, what Pope Francis and Ban Ki-moon are seemingly trying to do is repeatedly warned against in the Bible (Revelation 13:1-18, 14:12, 18:4; Zechariah 2:6-7).

The Bible is clear that financial pressures will be something that the Antichrist is associated with:

16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16-17)

The “He” above is the two-horned beast (Revelation 13:11), also known as the False Prophet (Revelation 16:13), and Antichrist (1 John 4:1-3).

The Bible also says that the merchants of the world will have gotten wealthy from the system that the Antichrist will promote:

2 Babylon the great…has become a dwelling place of demons…a cage for every unclean and hated bird! 3…and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury. (Revelation 18:2a,b,d, 3c)

So, there are several biblical prophecies that tie the power that the Antichrist supports with a type of deceitful prosperity. Did you notice the connection to a cage of birds above? Well, then notice then also the following:

27 As a cage is full of birds,
So their houses are full of deceit.
Therefore they have become great and grown rich.
28 They have grown fat, they are sleek;
Yes, they surpass the deeds of the wicked;
They do not plead the cause,
The cause of the fatherless;
Yet they prosper,
And the right of the needy they do not defend.
29 Shall I not punish them for these things?’ says the Lord.
‘Shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?’

30 “An astonishing and horrible thing
Has been committed in the land:
31 The prophets prophesy falsely,
And the priests rule by their own power;
And My people love to have it so.
But what will you do in the end? (Jeremiah 5:27-31)

So, the supporters of the Beast and Antichrist/False Prophet will prosper for a time, then God will punish.

Furthermore, notice three Catholic writings/prophecies about the final Antichrist:

Saint Mechtilda (died 1299): Antichrist will, through base and false strategem, and with presents of gold and gems, attain influence over the worldly princes. They will look up to him as their Lord and God (Culleton, The Reign of Antichrist, pp. 133-134).

Saint Ephrem (died 375): Antichrist will use worldly goods as bait. He will entice many Christians with money and goods to apostatize…The devil will help him find all the hidden treasures of the world, even those at the bottom of the ocean. With those treasures he will attain greater success for the reign of Satan than at any other time in past centuries (Connor, pp.73.74).

Saint Jerome (died 420): Antichrist…will gain support with many gifts and money. He will sell himself to the devil…(Connor E. Prophecy for Today. Imprimatur + A.J. Willinger, Bishop of Monterey-Fresno; Reprint: Tan Books and Publishers, Rockford (IL), 1984, p. 74).

The Bible, by the way, does mention that the King of the North will end up with a lot of gold, silver, and precious stones (Daniel 11:38,43) and that a seven-hilled/mountain-based power will have “gold and precious stones and pearls” (Revelation 17:4).  Catholic writers have identified that seven-hilled power as Rome.

But, seriously, is it possible that before the Beast rises up that the Antichrist will use material items for bait?  The more Pope Francis proposes wealth distribution, the closer the time may come when the Vatican takes concrete action and does just that.

The Bible clear warns about this Babylonian arrangement (Zechariah 2:7) and teaches that the only true unity will come after that system is destroyed (Revelation 18) and Jesus returns (Revelation 19; Zechariah 2:8-12). But as the UN and the Vatican do not seem to understand those scriptures, they are working towards something that the Bible warns against.

However, if you will believe the Bible and truly live as a faithful elect Christian, the Bible shows that you will not have to be deceived as the rest of the world will be (Matthew 24:24; 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12).
