Herbert W. Armstrong, of the Worldwide Church of God taught for over 50 years, the Romanists would gain power, take over nations to form a resurrection in Europe. Today the Romanists control Europe and America. Prophecy is fulfilled before your very eyes!
In America, we have the Vice President, Joseph Bidden, a Roman Catholic at the helm of power assisting President Obama. In the Law Courts we can also see Rome's influence. See the book The Secret History of the Jesuits for more information on Rome's influence and the Spiritually Smart website.
Antonin Scalia, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court is a staunch Roman Catholic. In an interview with the New York Times, articled entitled, In Conversation: Antonin Scalia:
What do you make of the new pope? He’s the Vicar of Christ. He’s the chief. I don’t run down the pope.We have a staunch Romanist deciding constitutional affairs in America, founded by Protestants, many of whom decided to flee the persecution of Rome under the Inquisitions. Bible prophecy tells us a "harlot" (Rev 17) will unite the world economically, militarily and religiously in false worship over the entire earth called the "Antichrist" (Rev 13, 18). This will culminate in Jacob's trouble, a time of great persecution for the true Israel of God ushering the final confrontation of a returning Jesus Christ to Jerusalem (Rev 19:11).
I’m not inviting you to run down the pope. But what do you think of his recent comments, that the church ought to focus less on divisive issues and more on helping the poor? I think he’s absolutely right. I think the church ought to be more evangelistic.
