Francis promoting Greco-Roman ecumenical unity in Sweden


Pope Francis spoke in Sweden:

October 31, 2016

Half a millennium after the Reformation, Catholics and Lutherans have a “new opportunity to accept a common path,” says Pope Francis.

The Pope said this today in Sweden, where he is on an ecumenical journey to commemorate the start of the Reformation by focusing on the 50 years of dialogue that have highlighted the points of unity between Catholics and Lutherans.

We cannot be “resigned to the division and distance that our separation has created between us,” he said. “We have the opportunity to mend a critical moment of our history by moving beyond the controversies and disagreements that have often prevented us from understanding one another.” …

We pray, he said, “‘Grant us the gift of unity, so that the world may believe in the power of your mercy.’ This is the testimony the world expects from us. We Christians will be credible witnesses of mercy to the extent that forgiveness, renewal and reconciliation are daily experienced in our midst. Together we can proclaim and manifest God’s mercy, concretely and joyfully, by upholding and promoting the dignity of every person. Without this service to the world and in the world, Christian faith is incomplete.”

The type of Greco-Roman unity that Pope Francis is calling for is warned against in the Bible (cf. Revelation 17).

But he regularly is doing this.

Many applaud him for this.  Including in Sweden. Notice something from Sweden’s Prime Minister:

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven says it is “very important” that Pope Francis chose to go to the secular Scandinavian country to mark the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

Lofven, a former union boss who…. leads Sweden’s left-leaning Social Democratic Party, greeted the pontiff as he arrived at Malmo Airport in southern Sweden.

Lofven told The Associated Press minutes before Francis set foot in Sweden that “of course it’s is very important for Sweden that the pope has chosen to be here” to underline the cooperation between the Vatican and the Lutheran church.

The ecumenical and interfaith agenda is being pushed ahead.

As laid out in my book, The Last Pope:

According to Catholic prophecy:

  • An antipope will arise.
  • A pope will hold an ecumenical council that satisfies heretics and results in a more ecumenical religion being accepted.
  • The vast majority of Catholics will accept the antipope.
  • A pope that performs miracles will arise.
  • People around the world will accept the faith that this miracle-performing pope endorses.
  • A pope that supports the “Great Monarch/Prince of the North” will arise.
  • The Great Monarch, that the pope supports, will eliminate the Anglo-descended nations.
  • The “Great Monarch/Prince of the North,” that the pope supports, will eliminate an Islamic confederation.
  • A pope will reign with the Great Monarch for around four years.
  • The destruction of Rome comes after tribulations that a pope oversees.
  • Armies from lands, including Russia and Asia, will gather in Armageddon
  • A great judge comes after Rome is destroyed.

The ecumenical agenda is moving ahead.

The Bible warns against it (cf. Revelation 13, 17, & 18). The Bible says that signs and lying wonders will be a factor in getting the Greco-Roman accepting world to accept it:

7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:7-12)

While the signs and lying wonders are still being restrained, the groundwork for the coming ecumenical unity is being laid. This will not end well per Revelation 18.
