No surprise on that one. When the world-at-large loves and respects a "man of God," be very leery of that stamp of approval! Lost people run away from true servants of the Living Christ, not toward him.

Amen! The Word of God states that "friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." (James 4:4)

Jesus made it clear that TRUE Christians will be hated and persecuted by the world.

John 15:18-21
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.
..........
..........
Paul also stated that obedient Christians will suffer afflictions and persecution too.

2 Timothy 1:8- Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;

2 Timothy 3:12- Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

If the unbelievers like a so-called "Christian", then something is absolutely wrong! Oh how the unbelievers just love Pope Francis!

The Pope is not a prophet and he doesn't claim to be one. He wants the fortunate to help the unfortunate because that's what Jesus would do and the right thing to do. Jesus didn't discriminate helping the poor due to their belief, but he lead by example to bring people to God.

I can't believe you jealous, slanderous and selfrighteous narcissistic maniacs. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

Pope Francis ought to be the one ashamed, leading millions and millions of people to their eternal damnation. It's bad enough the previous popes taught the false gospel of faith + works = salvation, this new pope is teaching a works alone = salvation, that a person doesn't need Jesus' perfect sinless sacrifice to atone for their sin debt. He is a deceiver trying to drag souls to Hell with him.

His "camera-ready, media-friendly, good works pictures" won't save him when he is before the Holy Jesus. Maybe he has you unbelievers and fake Christians fooled, but he doesn't have us Fundamentalists fooled for a second. I believe he is either the precursor to the False Prophet who leads the Harlot Apostate church in the end times(Revelation 17), or perhaps he IS the False Prophet as foretold in scripture (Revelation 13:11-18).

Definitely true. The Muslims believe in "Al Mahdi," (The Guided One), who will arise and rule the Earth in justice and peace for 7 years. Odd, that the Bible tells of "one coming on his own name" that will oversee a one-world government and religion, also for 7 years. I personally believe that "Muslim savior" will be the other side of the Antichrist/False Prophet equation.
As for the true servant of Christ:

The popes all claim to be the only true successors to the apostle Peter. They carry the title "Holy Father," which Jesus referred to as His Father, God Almighty, maker of Heaven and Earth. So, they are speaking on behalf of God, and are therefore prophets.

You're speaking on behalf of God with all your posts, so, that makes you and RR prophets also.

We are certainly living in exciting, prophetically fulfilling, Biblical times. It's a shame that Satan has the unbelievers so blinded to all the many signs around us (2 Corinthians 4:3-4). Of course, we know from scripture that God will send the Christ-rejecters strong delusions in the End Times (2 Thessalonians 2:7-12).

Right before Pope Benedict stepped down and the Jesuit Pope Francis took his place, the pope was granted an official seat at King David's tomb in Jerusalem. Everything is falling into place just as the Holy Bible prophesied thousands of years in advance.

Actually, the Popes are elected, as was Matthias. Theoretically there should only be eleven Cardinals but since the Church has grown to one point two billion adherents the logistics would get a bit out of hand. And yeah, when speaking ex cathedra they are speaking on behalf of God because that is the assignment they were charged with until He comes again.

This isn't the land of the lost, Richie. This is a barely a step above video gaming.

Someone told me Pope Francis said yesterday if you aren't covered with mud and smell like a goat you're probably not fulfilling your duty as a Christian.

There's another rumor that Pope Francis was donning civilian clothes and sneaking out at night to help the poor but the security people put and end to that.

I don't present these as facts, as you present your made up shít about Catholics, but I suppose you could check them out if you were so inclined.

We share God's glorious salvation message with the lost unbelieving world. Feel free to call us whatsoever names you want, but that's not going to stop us from sharing the good news.

1 Peter 4:14- If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part He is evil spoken of, but on your part He is glorified.
.......
Acts 5:38-39
38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought:

39 But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.

Romans 8:31- What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

It very well could be, but we won't be here to find out (1 Thessalonians 4:15-18, 1 Cor 15:51-55, Revelation 4:1, John 14:1-3, Revelation 3:10, Luke 21:36, etc etc).

Speaking of the Mahdi, I have this link bookmarked in my End Times news articles folder from back in July 2013.

Thanks. I'll read it in a little while. Was checking out Wayne's suggestion of reading "A Woman Rides the Beast" by Dave Hunt. The overview indicates the "woman" is the RCC, which latches onto the Antichrist's power machine. Very plausible, I think. We do know the RCC is paving the way for global governance. At any rate, any miracles coming from either Rome or Islam will not be the work of the Lord God.

Have you heard the plan for world peace from the Lord?

Chapter 19 of Revelation. Quite a contrast from sinful man's plan, isn't it?
