On May 4th, 2017 Donald Trump signed an executive order rescinding certain aspects of the Johnson Amendment, an amendment that has placed many restrictions against the churches. Trump took a big step to fulfilling his promise to give “Great power” back to the church. And on this very same day gleefully announced that he will be meeting with Pope Francis on the 24th of this same month. The Pope and Trump had their differences last year when Trump was talking about building the wall across the southern border of the United States where the Pope said that building walls is “not Christian.” Trump fired back by saying to the Pope that he is a “really good Christian.”
After Obama spent 8 years rolling out a new pro-death, pro-sodomy, homosexual transgender culture which really hit the evangelical community hard. Trump has been able to align himself with evangelical Christianity as its defender against the evils that have been brought in under Obama, and more of the evils to which Hillary was promising to continue in. And now we have Trump ready to “Make America Great Again”. In making America great Trump has promised “great power” back to the church.
Trump has made promises to Christians saying “I don’t want to insult anybody, but your power has been totally taken away…you’ll have great power to do good things…We’re gonna bring it back because it’s a good thing,”
He said he will give the church leaders “Great Power”. And in another speech he said:
“Really, they’ve shut Christianity down…they’re really being silenced… and think of the power we have over the democrats, over the republicans, I mean the power. The power is incredible.”
Trump the New Constantine
My how history repeats itself. In AD 313 an executive order was signed by Constantine similar to the executive order Donald Trump just signed. Constantine’s order was called the Edict of Milan which according to Wikepedia.com was a law ordering the people of the Roman Empire to “treat Christians benevolently within the Roman Empire.” Constantine was considered to be a “really good Christian” who really helped to give power back to the church.
A decree enforcing Sunday was made the law of the land only 8 years later at the Council of Nicea in 321 AD by Constantine and the Roman Religion was now enforced by the State power. Heretics were forbidden by the State power to have lawful assemblies, or to lawfully worship contrary to following the Catholic religion. This is how a monster or beast was created.
And now in 2017 we see another image of that beast being created today and seeking to “exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.” (Revelation 13:12)
Trump Trying to Unite Major Religions to Combat Extremism
President Trump and the Pope agreed to meet on May 24th, 2017. On Donald Trump’s first foreign trip since becoming President, his first goal was to unite the world’s religions to combat “extremism”.
“We will begin to construct a new foundation of cooperation and support with our Muslim allies to combat extremism, terrorism and violence,” Mr Trump said.
Donald travelled to Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Vatican this month on a mission to unite three of the world’s most prominent religions against intolerance, terrorism and Iran. And after meeting the Pope Trump tweeted that it was the “Honor of a lifetime to meet His Holiness Pope Francis. I leave the Vatican more determined than ever to pursue PEACE in our world.” He also said that “All civilized nations must join together to protect human life and the sacred right of our citizens to live in safety and in peace.”
Certainly a call for “peace and safety”. We could only hope, however, the word of God tells us that “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them.” (1 Thess 5:3)
President Trump has been a skeptic of the climate agenda. But at this meeting Pope Francis did give Trump a gift. It was a copy of the Papal Encyclical on the climate called Laudato Si which was authored by Pope Francis. The very one that was released before Pope Francis came to the United States to address the congress as well as the United Nations in New York where they were pushing the Climate Agenda called the Sustainable Development Agenda. For those who are unfamiliar with what this agenda has to do with, please see my three part video series entitled: “No Man Might Buy or Sell-A New Economic Order-Get Out of the Cities” on YouTube, or you can ask for some on DVD by emailing me. email@example.com
Pope Francis Call to Combat Extremism and Fundamentalism, Unity, and Healing of WOUNDS of Division
It was September 24th, 2015 that Pope Francis spoke to the congress of the United States. The congress is the legislative body of America, they are called by many the “law makers”. They have taken a vow to uphold the constitution of the United States, a constitution that was founded on Protestant principles. This constitution was meant to keep the wickedness of the Catholic Church that ruled the world for over 1000 years away from having control over the consciences of men. This constitution was to keep the institution that took the lives of more than 50 million people who walked contrary to their doctrines away from being able to enforce their decrees on the people of this country.
This is a church whose Papal leadership has throughout history proven to have no respect for the consciences of others and Pope Francis himself has said that the “authentic spirit of religion” is not be “confined” to “personal conscience”
And this Papal voice through the legislature in the very heart of the nation, Washington DC was given a voice to influence the law making assembly. If it is true that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh, and that the heart of the nation is Washington D.C. and that legislative body is the mouth, then on this day this country certainly spoke like a dragon. To most of the world however, there was hardly a notice as this day passed with joy and excitement for most, and all the world, especially the citizens of the United States wondered after the Papacy while some of the founding fathers who fought to free America from kingly and Papal tyranny may have been rolling in their graves.
James Madison known as the father of the constitution put the first amendment in this light “The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries.”- James Madison, 4th president of the United States
Boy oh boy did the Papacy soak the soil of Europe in blood over the centuries. America has forgotten her history. America has forgotten why she declared independence.
A once protestant government, protesting the Papacy was now allowing this Pope to sit in the heart of the nation. The heart of this beast fully desolate of being the temple of the Shekinah glory, the spirit of Christ and Protestantism gone, the man of sin sitting on the heart was now free to speak. And just what was his message?
While in congress Pope Francis said “We know that no religion is immune from forms of individual delusion or ideological extremism. This means that we must be especially attentive to every type of fundamentalism… The contemporary world, with its open wounds which affect so many of our brothers and sisters, demands that we confront every form of polarization which would divide it into these two camps.”
Combat “extremism” and dividers. That’s what Trump said. He wanted to unite with Pope Francis to combat, “extremism” and is working to unite the worlds major religions including the Papacy against it.
Don’t miss what he said while in this seat. There are “open wounds” or “division”. It is caused by “fundamentalism” and “extremism”. When we look up “fundamentalism” in the dictionary we find that it refers to Protestantism or Bible believing Christianity.
a form of a religion, especially Islam or Protestant Christianity, that upholds belief in the strict, literal interpretation of scripture.
So what does the Pope expect us to be especially on guard about? Those bible believing Christians. Fundamentalists. Interestingly homeland security has listed them above even muslim extremists as more of a threat to the security of America than anyone.
Protestants protest against Papal decrees. They protest church and state. They truly believe in the first amendment like as James Madison, Thomas Jefferson and the founding fathers. And they definitely cause issues with the Papacy, and cannot be united with them unless the Pope steps down from his kingly seat and repents. Therefore Protestants are the cause of division, and they are the ones who have kept the Papacy from being able to heal these “wounds” of “division”.
It is not because of rebellion that they cause division, but because of love for the truth, and understanding of God’s true character and how it has been misrepresented by the Papacy over the years.
