This headline is personally one of the most faith affirming headlines I have read this year.
While so much prophetic progress is taking place in Russia – which due to the birth of a new child I have not had the time to write about – the Papacy on the other hand is outworking exactly what Christ said it would be, those few moments before his own return.
What exactly is this apostate system up to now? Well lets cover some context briefly.
Yesterday, Pope Francis was awarded by – none other than Europe itself – the ‘prestigious Charlemagne award’. Charlemagne was the first Emperor of Holy Roman Empire, a Catholic, who united several nations together to form a religious empire.
Just like Charlemagne, Pope Francis is now playing a key role in European unification. While calling himself ‘a political animal’, the Pope is dutifully acting out the part of the prostitute riding the beast as described by Christ in Revelation 17.
But that is just the beginning: During his award speech to the European Parliament, Pope Francis spoke wistfully about his dream for a ‘new Europe’ which brings us back to chapter Daniel 2.
Remember Nebuchadnezzar’s image in Daniel 2? The feet were made of iron and clay, but it was the iron (the Roman Catholic influence) that kept the clay together. This was together manifested in ten toes – the ten European nations – whose only reason for unification, was Roman Catholicism, just like the state of affairs brought about by Charlemagne himself.
Infact, speaking of the kingdoms under Charlemagne, Bro. Thomas says;
At this crisis of affairs, there existed … the Ten Toe Kingdoms. I would remark here in passing that it has hitherto been found impossible to define these kingdoms according to the number given. Several tens have been guessed at, but the lists bear inaccuracy on the face of them. The kingdoms are represented by ten horns, and ten toes, because there would be that number appearing on the territory of the Roman Beast between A.D. 476 and A.D. 799, the interval between the fall and restoration of the Western Roman Empire…
At the time of the revelation of Jesus Christ and the Saints, there will also be ten kingdoms whose territories will embrace those of the original Gothic Ten.
Exposition of Daniel Pg 75
So while the Pope is fulfilling Revelation 17 by committing fornication with the “kings of Europe”, he is also on the cusp of fulfilling the unification of 10 nations as described by the ten toes in Daniel chapter 2 & the ten horns in Rev 17:
“The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.
However this prophecy could well be fulfilled AFTER the return of Christ.
While we are witnessing these amazing prophecies come into fulfilment before our eyes, neither of those prophecies mentioned in Rev 17 or Daniel 2 directly portend the return of Christ.
But there is one prophecy which does portend the return of Christ:
The very last sign to occur before His return is the “Unclean Spirits like Frogs” which are explained here in more detail, but in short, represent unclean teachings being spoken from the mouth of the false prophet (the papacy), the beast (Europe), and the dragon (Russia).
One such unclean teaching, is the doctrine of humanism.
In his Charlemagne speech, (full script here FYI) the Pope talks extensively about his dream for “a new European humanism”:
“Europe is weary, aging, no longer fertile…
With mind and heart, with hope and without vain nostalgia, like a son who rediscovers in Mother Europe his roots of life and faith, I dream of a new European humanism, one that involves “a constant work of humanization” and calls for “memory, courage, [and] a sound and humane utopian vision”.
I dream of a Europe that is young, still capable of being a mother: a mother who has life because she respects life and offers hope for life.
What you just read is a perfect example of the “Unclean Spirits like Frogs” being uttered by the Papacy; the last sign, before the return of Christ.
Even so, Come, King Jesus.
