THE NOT REALLY RETIRED POPE BENEDICT TAKES JAB AT POPE FRANCIS, COMPARING HIS LIBERAL PRO-LGBTQ VISION FOR THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH TO ANTICHRIST

Pope Francis’ quest to ensure more liberalism within the Vatican is being hampered by Benedict, who must take “real retirement” after standing down as the head of the Catholic church, an expert has demanded. The alleged row between Francis and Benedict has continued to boil, ever since the current pope replaced his successor in a shock move seven years ago. It has threatened Francis’ mission to try and modernize the church, as his supposed attempts at relaxing some of the rules of Catholicism, such as the introduction of married male priests into the fold, have been scuppered.

Pope Benedict compared gay marriage to the Antichrist, leading some experts to suggest it could be a ploy to derail Pope Francis’ own highly-liberal revitalization plans for the Roman Catholic Church.

When Pope Benedict stunningly announced his retirement in 2013, to say it took the Roman Catholic Church by surprise would be a gross understatement. A pope retiring had not happened in nearly 700 years, and it immediately gave rise to myriad conspiracy theories as to why he did it. But whatever the reason, it exposed some of the arcane and evil mystery that has always walked hand in hand with the Whore of Revelation. So recent comments by Benedict comparing gay marriage, something Pope Francis seems to be increasingly in favor of, with the coming reign of Antichrist lands them both smack dab on the NTEB end times radar.

“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:4,5 (KJB)

Bible truth is such that, even in an ungodly and unholy mess like the Roman Catholic counterfeit church, it will bubble up to the top no matter the source it comes out through. Every Roman Catholic pope has been, by definition, a type of Antichrist since the first popes back in the 300’s AD. They steal one of the names of God, Holy Father as found in John 17:11, and apply it to themselves. Did not Lucifer scream at God in Isaiah 14:13-15 and declare he would be like Him? Yep, sure did. Benedict jabbing at Francis with ‘antichrist’ is right on the money, even is Benedict is a lost man himself.

Pope Benedict Comparing Gay Marriage To The Antichrist Is A Direct Jab At Pope Francis

FROM THE EXPRESS UK: Pope Francis’ quest to ensure more liberalism within the Vatican is being hampered by Benedict, who must take “real retirement” after standing down as the head of the Catholic church, an expert has demanded.

The alleged row between Francis and Benedict has continued to boil, ever since the current pope replaced his successor in a shock move seven years ago. It has threatened Francis’ mission to try and modernise the church, as his supposed attempts at relaxing some of the rules of Catholicism, such as the introduction of married male priests into the fold, have been scuppered. Now, author Lynda Telford – writer of ‘Women of the Vatican – Female Power in a Male World’ – has called for Benedict to move away from the upper echelons of the church and allow Francis to carry out his own mandate.

She described the move to allow Benedict to stay on despite his resignation as the head of the Vatican as “appalling”. It comes amid claims the pair do not get on as Benedict’s more traditionalist agenda is often set against the more liberal values of Francis.

In recent days, Benedict has attempted to soften perceptions of a dispute as quotes emerged from the new authorised biography ‘Benedict XVI – A Life’. In the snippets from the book, Benedict said his friendship with Francis had “not only endured but grown”.

But other comments that surfaced from the publication show Benedict comparing gay marriage to the Antichrist, leading some experts to suggest it could be a ploy to derail Francis’ own revitalisation plans for the church.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, Ms Telford said: “Benedict has no right to interfere.

“Putting him under the same roof as Francis, so he’s never free of him, is appalling. He should be in real retirement somewhere. “He speaks as he does because he knows he has support from other backward-lookers.

Americans Must Now Accept The Hard, Cold Reality That The Coronavirus Outbreak Is Intentionally Being Used To Collapse The U.S. Economy

The Cloward-Piven strategy is an 8-step plan designed in 1966 by hardcore anti-America Liberal Socialists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a new national system. Here is their plan, look at it and tell me if you see anything it mentions that might be happening right now. This is not conspiracy theory, I am asking you to exercise some intelligent, critical thinking.

by Geoffrey Grider April 2, 2020

The Cloward-Piven strategy is an 8-step plan designed in 1966 by hardcore anti-America Liberal Socialists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis.

This article you are reading is the 7,629th article I have written since Now The End Begins came online 10 years ago, and it is perhaps the hardest one I’ve ever had to write, so I want you to pay close attention to what I have to say. It is going to present to you a very, very hard truth to swallow, but it is truth nonetheless. What is happening right now in America is something we have long written about coming to pass one day, it began under Obama but didn’t fully complete. It is now happening under Trump, why is he not stopping it?

“This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?” Isaiah 14:26,27 (KJB)

Back when Barack Obama was president, one of the things we said he was attempting to do was to destroy the American economy with something called the Cloward-Piven strategy. It is an 8-step plan designed in 1966 by hardcore anti-America Liberal Socialists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a new national system. Here is their plan, look at it and tell me if you see anything it mentions that might be happening right now. This is not conspiracy theory, I am asking you to exercise some intelligent, critical thinking. Ready? Here it is:

The Cloward-Piven Strategy To Collapse America:

  1. Healthcare– Control healthcare and you control the people. HAPPENING NOW
  2. Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live. HAPPENING NOW
  3. Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty. HAPPENING NOW
  4. Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state. HAPPENING NOW
  5. Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives. (Food, Housing, and Income) HAPPENING NOW
  6. Education – Take control of what people read and listen to us“ take control of what children learn in school. ALREADY DONE
  7. Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools. ALREADY DONE
  8. Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor. HAPPENING NOW

Right now, steps 1-5 and 8 are being executed right now in how our government is reacting to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, with steps, 6 and 7 already having been implemented since 2008. The American economy is being split into pieces right now by the combination of a $2 trillion dollar bailout with more coming, Americans under stay-at-home orders, and with more people right now on unemployment in two weeks of the coronavirus crisis than in the second year of the Great Depression of 1929.

Now Dr. Fauci is saying that the stay-at-home order will not be lifted until there are “zero new cases”? How can that be? That would take many months to reach that number, how can that be? It only makes sense when you look at steps 2 and 3 of the Cloward-Piven strategy. Our government is telling us to stay at home, that 100,000 people will die in the first two weeks of April, yet for that to come true America would have to have 500% more fatalities from coronavirus that all the deaths recorded anywhere around the world since the COVID-19 outbreak began. That is simply not true and it is simply not possible. No, my friends, what we are seeing is the implementation of the Cloward-Piven 8 Step Plan to crash the American economy, and it is happening right before our very eyes.

America as we know it cannot and will not survive a 3-month lockdown, it will fall and there is no question about that. Jobless claims as of today, have surged to 6.6 million people, listen to what the people at Market Watch are saying, it will shock you to your core:

“There are no parallels for the pandemic fueled slowdown that the U.S. economy is currently contending with, and that is forcing economists like those of Bank of America Global Research to forecast a decidedly grimmer outlook for the American economy than they offered just two weeks ago. The BofA researchers on Thursday said the coming recession “appears to be deeper and more prolonged than we were led to believe just 14 days ago when we last updated our forecasts, not just in the US but globally as well. As MarketWatch reports the scale of the shutdowns of business in force, intended to help mitigate the spread of the deadly pathogen, is unprecedented and is having a substantial negative impact on the labor market and the broader economy.” READ MORE

Those numbers, unlike the numbers from Dr. Fauci are not speculative they are actual numbers as of the date of this article. Speaking of Dr. Fauci, listen as he tells us that there is no foreseeable end to the stay at home lockdown of the American economy. You see how bad things have become in just two weeks, imagine where we will be in 3 months. This is the implementation of the Cloward-Piven 8 Step Plan to crash the American economy, and it is working beautifully.

Fauci Says Lockdown Will Continue Until There Are No “New Cases” of Coronavirus

FROM SUMMIT NEWS: During yesterday’s White House briefing, Fauci, who has become the face of America’s response to the coronavirus, was asked by a reporter whether social distancing measures will be imposed until there is a drug or vaccine to treat COVID-19.

“I think if we get to the part of the curve that Dr. Birx showed yesterday when it goes down to essentially no new cases, no new deaths at a period of time. I think it makes sense that you will have to relax social distancing,” Fauci said. “The one thing we hopefully would have in place, and I believe we will have in place, is a much more robust system to be able to identify someone who was infected, isolate them and then do contact tracing,” he added.

The prospect of there ever being zero new coronavirus cases appears to be a very long way off, leading some to question if Fauci was asking Americans to adopt social distancing indefinitely, or at least until a vaccine is available.

  • “Fauci said that we can start to “relax” social distancing once there are “no new cases, no deaths.” Is it just me or is that completely bats*** insane?” asked Matt Walsh. “That would keep us in a lockdown for many months or years. And if the virus becomes endemic, forever. How can that be the plan?”
  • “No kidding. We would need to assume that any vaccine would be immediately available, 100% effective, 100% of the population has access to it, and 100% of the population takes it,” commented another respondent.
  • “Sounds like they’ll eventually have to keep us “temporarily” locked in our homes. No cars on the road. No people at stores or gas stations, and the national guard will start leaving a box of food on our doorsteps every 3 days. And everyone will be ok with it,” added another.

Italy is already experiencing looting and civil unrest as a result of lockdown measures. Experts have suggested that this could be a massive problem everywhere if authorities attempt to quarantine entire countries for too long. READ MORE

The Cloward-Piven Strategy Began In 2009 Under Obama

As I have told you, the Cloward-Piven plan to collapse the American economy first began under President Obama, as you will see here in this program by Glenn Beck from 2009. But for whatever reason, Obama and his minions were not able to fully implement Cloward-Piven. We thought we dodged a bullet with the election of Trump in 2016, so why are we seeing what Obama started now being thrust upon us? This video will fully explain the Cloward-Piven strategy to you, and when you understand it, you will understand what you are watching happen right now with the coronavirus outbreak. I highly urge you to watch all of these videos, educate yourself. Understand what is truly happening right now.

The Coronavirus Pandemic Is An Engineered ‘Black Swan Event’ Released To Tear Down The Existing Global System And Create New World Order

Isn’t anyone even the slightest bit suspicious about how fast this $2 trillion dollar bailout came into being? It’s almost like they already had the paperwork drawn up! By the time it’s done, it will be the largest, single government bailout in human history, all this for a virus that runs it’s course in a couple of months? The Spanish Flu of 1918 killed over 50,000,000 people in a single year, the coronavirus even with worse-case predictions will not amount to a fraction of that. And yet, the entire world is on lockdown, why now?

by Geoffrey Grider March 25, 2020

We are watching the coronavirus pandemic being used to collapse the existing global system to make way for the coming New World Order, and nothing will ever again be the same.

As you read this, over one-third of the world is on lockdown, with more countries issuing the order by the day. The morgues in New York City are filled to capacity, with no place to store the dead bodies. Officials were told that morgues in the city are expected to reach capacity next week, per the briefing. A third person familiar with the situation in New York said some of the city’s hospital morgues hit capacity in the past seven days. Hawaii and North Carolina have asked for mortuary help as well, and the disaster response agency is currently reviewing the requests.

“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24: 7,8 (KJB)

The world is changing right now, it is changing economically, financially and socially, to such a degree that one can only surmise watching this that a New World Order is preparing to rise up from the ashes of the coronavirus crisis. Never in modern history has there been such a volatile reaction to an infectious outbreak. AIDS, SARS, Ebola, West Nile Virus, and Swine Flu didn’t come anywhere near the level of panic we are seeing now. What we are watching is an event that is absolutely unique in our modern era, and could quite possibly be unique in human history. Not the virus, the reaction to the virus.

According to Rasmussen Reports, “between 750,000 and 1.1 million Americans may die of this disease before it runs its course. The latter figure is equal to all the U.S. dead in World War II and on both sides in the Civil War. Chancellor Angela Merkel warns that 70% of Germany’s population — 58 million people — could contract the coronavirus. If she is right, and Fauci’s mortality rate holds for her country, that could mean more than half a million dead Germans. If Fauci’s 1% mortality rate and Lipsitch’s estimate prove on target, between 3 billion and 5 billion people on earth will be infected, and 30 million to 50 million will die, a death toll greater than that of the Spanish Flu of 1918.”

But the real story is not in the mortality rate as all pandemics are harsh when it comes to that. In 20019. Obama’s Swine Flu outbreak wound up generating over 60 million infections globally, resulting in 12,469 deaths in the United States, and guess what? No masks, no quarantines, no lock-downs, no panic. The real story is the panic and actions being taken by world governments that are bringing about hyper-radical change.

Isn’t anyone even the slightest bit suspicious about how fast this $2 trillion dollar bailout came into being? It’s almost like they already had the paperwork drawn up! By the time it’s done, it will be the largest, single government bailout in human history, all this for a virus that runs it’s course in a couple of months? The Spanish Flu of 1918 killed over 50,000,000 people in a single year, the coronavirus even with worse-case predictions will not amount to a fraction of that. And yet, the entire world is on lockdown, why now?

We are watching the coronavirus pandemic being used to collapse the existing global system to make way for the coming New World Order, nothing will ever again be the same. The coronavirus is real, people are actually dying, and you need to protect yourself and your loved ones the best you can. But this panic, this rush to throw trillions at the problem is absolutely manufactured, I don’t believe a bit of it. Under the guise of the coronavirus pandemic, power is being seized within the United States, and it will not be returned to the people. If the United States falls, the whole world will fall, and a new world order will emerge from the ashes.

The ‘Elite’ Bugging Out To Their Bunkers Another Sign ‘The Great Freakout’ Has Begun – Study Hints Millions Of Americans May Be Infected Without Even Knowing It, Yet Spreading COVID-19 To Others

– Was COVID-19 Engineered To Usher In The Globalists End Game? 

By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die


The ‘great freakout’ has begun.

While the twitter hashtag #CancelEverything trended for much of Wednesday night after the NBA season was cancelled, President Trump announced flights from Europe into America would be ‘temporarily’ halted by Friday and Americans who hadn’t been paying attention finally began to realize that a full-fledged pandemic had been unleashed upon our nation, some of doctors worst fears have been confirmed with reports COVID-19 can survive in the air for up to 3 hours, live on surfaces for up to 3 days with doctors also now warning this coronavirus is 10 times more lethal than the seasonal flu.

With the media’s of China, Russia and Iran now pushing a ‘conspiracy theory’ that COVID-19 is a US biological weapon despite the fact that this pandemic began in Wuhan, China, home to one of China’s most top secret bioweapons laboratories, warnings from a Harvard epidemiologist that coronavirus will likely infect between 40% and 70% of the world this year also trended on twitter on Thursday morning, awakening the masses just partially to the ‘new reality‘ that Americans and the world will face in 2020. 

As Natural News had reported in this recent story, with the state of New York activating the National Guard and erecting a ‘coronavirus containment zone’ around the small city of New Rochelle, just the first of likely many to come in the days, weeks and months ahead should America not get this outbreak under control, the show ‘Containment’ helps us to understand that any estimate of just how short or how long a ‘medical martial law lock down’ might really last is sure to change, with estimates of two weeks sure to change to a month and then 3 months and possibly even longer should this thing explode in America. And with COVID-19 taking very little time to go from just breaking out to ‘endemic’ in the state of Washington, many have warned that this is how the globalists could complete their lockdown of America and the world with forced vaccinations, medical martial law and tyranny ahead.

So while we’ll absolutely pray that theory is wrong, as we’ll explore within this ANP story, with health authorities in the state of Ohio believing perhaps 100,000 residents of the state have the virus via community spread without even knowing it and Ohio just one US state of 50, and now Congress being warned 150 million Americans will likely get the disease, there could already potentially be a million or more Americans who have already been infected, have no idea they’ve been infected, and are walking around spreading it to others. A disaster in the making. 

(ANP FUNDRAISER! Following unforseen medical expenses, All News Pipeline will need some financial help in the days, weeks and months ahead. So if you like stories like this, please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this ‘Info-war’ for America at a time of systematic censorship and widespread corruption.)

The new story out on Thursday over at the Daily Mail titled “Coronavirus can live in patients for up to FIVE WEEKS after they first fall ill – more than twice as long as the recommended 14-day isolation period” helps to explain why this beast will spread rapidly here in America and is likely already doing so. 

Patients sickened with coronavirus may be infectious for up to five weeks after they first fall ill, a new study has found.

Researchers from China discovered that people could live with virus in their respiratory tracts for as long as 37 days. That’s 2.5 times as long as the mandatory two-week isolation period required by most healthcare experts.

It comes on the heels of the World Health Organization finally declaring the global outbreak to be a pandemic on Wednesday.


For the study, published in The Lancet, 191 patients from two hospitals in Wuhan – the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak – were studied.

The team used electronic medical records to collect demographic data as well as laboratory data.

Researchers detected the RNA of the virus – which carries the genetic information – in respiratory samples from patients for a median of 20 days after they first becoming sick.

The shortest amount of time someone was infectious was eight days and the longest amount of time was 37 days.


With that study likely helping to explain why there may be up to 100,000 cases of undiagnosed coronavirus in the state of Ohio alone this very moment as reported in the Daily Mail due to so-called ‘community spread’ with only 5 people officially diagnosed with coronavirus in the state, if those numbers are repeated from state to state across America, there could be millions of Americans walking around with coronavirus already, completely undiagnosed, and spreading it to others to ‘wash, rinse and repeat’ the hellish cycle. 

Ohio has estimated it has more than 100,000 undiagnosed cases of coronavirus, after the virus was detected in people that had not traveled to affected areas.

The state’s director of health, Dr Amy Acton, who is also a licensed physician, warned the virus was moving through the population via ‘community spread’ as state governors moved to close all schools from Kindergaten to K-12 on Monday.

The northern state, which has a population of 11.7 million, has only reported five cases of COVID-19 so far. Two have contracted the virus via ‘community spread’.

Warning of the rapid spread of the disease from the Ohio General Assembly in Columbus yesterday, Dr Acton said: ‘I know it is hard to understand COVID-19 since we can’t see it, but we know that one per cent of our population is carrying this virus today. That’s more than 100,000 people.’

With the so-called ‘super rich’ now bugging out to their disaster bunkers as the Guardian reports in this new story hopefully giving a hint to those who think that COVID-19 is only a ‘hoax’ to usher in medical tyranny here in America that it is something real that we should prepare for, we still can’t overlook the possibility that this ‘outbreak’ will be used by tyrants to usher in global martial law.

And with potentially large parts of America to be completely locked down in the days ahead, including confirmed reports of all public schools here in the state of Maryland as well as those in Ohio and Michigan being shut down, it’s long been warned that when the ‘elite’ begin to ‘bug out’, it’s time for those who haven’t been paying attention to wake up because time is running out. And now, the ‘elite’ are ‘bugging out’. From the Guardian.: 

Like hundreds of thousands of people across the world, the super-rich are preparing to self-isolate in the face of an escalation in the coronavirus crisis. But their plans extend far beyond stocking up on hand sanitiser and TV boxsets.

The world’s richest people are chartering private jets to set off for holiday homes or specially prepared disaster bunkers in countries that, so far, appear to have avoided the worst of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Many are understood to be taking personal doctors or nurses on their flights to treat them and their families in the event that they become infected. The wealthy are also besieging doctors in private clinics in Harley Street, London, and across the world, demanding private coronavirus tests.

Robert Vicino, founder and chief executive of Vivos Group, a California-based company constructing underground shelters designed to withstand a range of natural disasters and catastrophes, said his firm had seen a surge in inquiries and sales since the crisis took hold.

Vivos has converted a a cold war bunker in Indiana into accommodation for 80 people, and is offering space in 575 concrete bunkers in an abandoned second world war ordnance depot in South Dakota.


So while most of us aren’t able to jet off to our disaster bunkers in some far away places, far from the unfolding madness, we’re still able to buckle in for a bumpy ride ahead and while New York governor Andrew Cuomo recently banned gatherings of 500 or more people in New York in an attempt to cut the spread of this  beast in the state of New York, that still potentially puts 10’s of millions in New York in the ‘line of fire’ of coronavirus as, should only 1 person in that gathering of 499 people be positive for the virus, it’s likely to spread much further anyways. 

As this shocking new story over at the Daily Mail reports, while only 5 people in the state of Ohio had been officially diagnosed with coronavirus, doctors believe over 100,000 Ohio residents might be infected with the disease via community transmission, having no idea what-so-ever they’ve been infected, yet contagious to others. 

How many more such situations are going on now here in America? Please join us in prayer for the people of America.

Globalists Look To Exploit Coronavirus In Push For Global Government

By Brandon Smith/Activist Post February 24, 2020

Once you understand the globalist mindset, almost everything they do becomes rather robotic and predictable.  It should not be surprising that the World Health Organization (WHO), a branch of the United Nations, has been so aggressive in cheerleading for the Chinese government and its response to the coronavirus outbreak.

After all, China’s communist surveillance state model is a beta test for the type of centralization that the UN wants for the entire planet. They certainly aren’t going to point out that it was China’s totalitarian system that allowed the outbreak to spread from the very beginning.

Even now Xi Jinping is trying to rewrite history, claiming that he had been swift in responding to the crisis more than a month before he actually did.  The lie that the coronavirus mutated naturally in a food and animal market in Wuhan continues to be peddled by the mainstream media even though no evidence supporting this claim exists.  

And China is still releasing rigged death and infection numbers while they have over 600 million people under martial law lockdown and their crematoriums continue pumping out the fumes of the dead 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Brave health workers like Li Wenliang, who was punished by the government for warning about the virus in December, have died in the process of trying to fight against the centralized behemoth just to get vital information to the world, but that never happened, right? 

It was actually president Xi and the CPC that saved the day. The WHO and the CPC say so. You’ll never hear the UN praise the efforts of Li Wenliang; they want his name to disappear down the memory hole as much as the Chinese government does.

The developing narrative is a familiar one – Local officials “stifled” the response to the outbreak while the centralized national leadership put things back on track with extreme control measures that have turned the Hubei province into a veritable internment camp. 

Whatever you do, don’t point out that it was the national government’s habit of imprisoning health officials that release “false information” that led to the delayed reaction on the coronavirus. 

Also, don’t point out that ground zero for the outbreak is just down the road from the largest Level 4 Biohazard Lab in Asia, because that would make you a “conspiracy theorist”.

The message being pounded into the public consciousness is clear: “Shut up and accept that Centralization works”. Even when it fails miserably, it is still the answer to all our problems. All we have to do is “adjust” the historical record a little bit every time the system breaks and then institute even MORE centralization in response.

In other words, if the interdependent and draconian top-down structure of the globalist state leads to crisis, then it is because it was not centralized ENOUGH. Centralization always begets more centralization.

The financial fascist system of central banking and corporate oligarchy leads to the socialist welfare state, and the socialist welfare state leads to the surveillance state, the surveillance state leads to the martial law state, and the martial law state leads to full-on global governance; an endless elitist empire.

The failings of centralization have caused numerous problems long before it led to a potential pandemic. The pandemic simply clarifies the issue. For example, the breakdown in the global supply chain is becoming a bigger threat by the day.  The Baltic Dry Index a measure of shipping rates as well as global demand for goods, has essentially collapsed.  

This should have been the first warning sign that the supply chain was in trouble, but the mainstream doesn’t pay attention to the fundamentals, only stock markets.  Enter Apple, one of the largest companies in the world, which has now abandoned its projections for 2020 and finally admitted that the shutdown of Chinese factories may just be a problem. 

Some mentally challenged people out there are scoffing sarcastically at this issue, saying “Oh no, whatever will we do without iPhones…?”.  They don’t grasp the wider implications.  If Apple’s production is going down because of the supply chain disruption then this is a signal that multiple companies and most of the economy are also going down because of supply chain disruptions. It’s not about iPhones, it’s about the bigger picture.

Globalism has led to interdependent economies and nation states that no longer have redundancies in production. We have been forced to rely on production centers on the other side of the world for a vast majority of our goods.

When China shuts down, the US economy loses almost 20% of its supply chain. When Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Vietnam shut down from the virus, you can add another 10% to 15% on top of that. Retailers in the US represent around 70% of GDP. Cut off the supply chain in Asia and retailers lose a vast array of goods to sell. The US economy eventually shuts down also, even if the virus never spreads here.

Some people will argue that we don’t need all the “cheap plastic crap” from Asia anyway, and this situation is a “good thing”. Sorry to break it to you, but America’s economy is built on the selling of cheap plastic crap (along with the selling of the fiat dollar as the world reserve currency). 

Walmart (Chinamart if you discount agricultural products) is the largest employer in the US and the world, after all. Right or wrong, our economic system is so globalized that the fall of the Chinese dominoes will eventually knock down our own dominoes.

But when this disaster occurs and numerous national economies suffer from enforced globalist integration, guess what will happen next? The globalists will ride to our “rescue” with even greater centralization. This was their agenda all along.

Many people in the liberty movement are now aware of the Event 201 simulation, a war game run by globalists in the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Economic Forum on a “theoretical” coronavirus pandemic that kills 65 million people. 

This simulation took place only a couple of months before the real thing exploded in China in December. But hey, maybe that’s all just amazing coincidence. 

What concerns me even more is the solution that was presented at the end of Event 201 – the creation of a centralized global financial body that would manage the international response to the outbreak.

Isn’t it amazing how every major catastrophe caused by globalism seems to lead to more globalism? One might start to wonder if some of these events were triggered by incompetence, or if they were deliberately engineered. 

At the very least, crisis events have been allowed to fester unchecked by organizations like the WHO as they continue to write off the coronavirus as a non-issue that is “well under control” by a Chinese government that caused it to spread in the first place.

So here is what is going to happen next:

Best case scenario is that the Western world is mostly unscathed by the virus itself but the economic supply chain suffers major setbacks. The global economy, which was already crashing over the past year due to historic levels of corporate and consumer debt, not to mention faltering exports and freight, is finally tipped over the edge. 

The massive Everything Bubble, fueled by a decade of inflationary central bank stimulus, implodes. Governments respond with totalitarian measures in the name of “protecting the public”.

Globalist institutions like the IMF step in and suggest that frail national monetary systems come under the management of their Special Drawing Rights basket in order to mitigate the debt crisis. Essentially, this is the first step to global governance.

Worst case scenario, the virus spreads throughout the US and Europe and governments respond the same way China’s government has; martial law and full-blown concentration camp culture. This would lead to civil war in the US because we are armed and many people will shoot anyone trying to put us into quarantine camps. Europe is mostly screwed.

The establishment then suggests that paper money be removed from the system because it is a viral spreader. China is already pushing this solution now. Magically, we find ourselves in a cashless society in a matter of a year or two; which is what the globalists have been demanding for years. Everything goes digital, and thus even local economies become completely centralized as private trade dies.

Again, this might be an engineered event, or it might simply be that the globalists are exploiting a natural outbreak. Either way, they are not going to let a good crisis go to waste. Whether or not they succeed is dependent on several factors, but mostly, its dependent on us. 

How many people will buy into the notion that centralization is the answer to out problems? How many people will realize that centralization is the CAUSE of all our problems? And how many people will fight to prevent ultimate centralization under a psychopathic globalist cult?

A viral outbreak is a significant danger to us all, but an even greater threat is the supposed cure. Trading our economic and social freedom in the name of stopping the coronavirus?  No matter how deadly the bug, it’s just not worth it.

Roman Catholics, Evangelicals, Pagans, Muslims And Buddhists Gather At The ‘Ring Of Peace’ United Nations One World Religion Interfaith Ceremony In Germany

The guiding “light” for this ecumenical extravaganza was the “Ring of Peace.” A 25-foot wooden ring-shaped sculpture was erected by the organizers to be a “permanent, multi-faith symbol” of interfaith cooperation. According to the creators of this modern-day idol, the ring is supposed to represent the wheel of Buddha, the ring of the Prophet Mohammed, the ring of King Solomon and Lessing’s Ring Parable – a story which equates different faiths as one.

by Geoffrey Grider March 9, 2020

All faiths are intertwined and interlinked together, complimenting each other and nurturing the same values that are also Universal values that unites us as One Humanity and Many cultures and many religions.

This happened a little while back in September of 2019, somehow we missed it, but better late than never, right? The official name of this annual gathering is called the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations Religions for Peace World Assembly, and it centered around something called the ‘ring of peace’. The idea of the ‘ring of peace’ is finding ‘peace and harmony’ between the world’s religions so they can ‘work together’ to achieve their ‘common goal’ of universal peace and safety. Now let me see, where have we heard that before? Wait, I know!

“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.” 1 Thessalonians 5:3-6 (KJB)

If it is religion you want, pick one, any one, they are all just as good as the other, and they all take you to the same place. Hell. The Bible tells us that in the days after the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church, during the time of Jacob’s trouble, a man will arrive on the scene and he will bring the world peace, and he’ll do it through religion. That man being, of course, Antichrist.

Here are some remarks from the leader of the event His Excellency Mr. Miguel Angel Moratinos:

  • “I feel very privileged to be launching the sculpture “The Ring For Peace”, a symbolic artwork that sheds light on the theme that is gathering all of us here in Lindau, namely Peace between Religions. I thank Dr. William Vendley, Secretary-General of the Religions for Peace for inviting me. I also thank the Federal Government of Germany for co-organizing this important and timely meeting. Yesterday, I was very glad to meet with my good friend President Frank Walter Steinmeier. I echo what he said in his opening remarks that we should all work for peace and respect. I take the opportunity of this moment and invite you to commit to fulfill this recommendation “work for peace and respect”.”
  • “Afterall, all faiths are intertwined and interlinked together, complimenting each other and nurturing the same values that are also Universal values that unites us as One Humanity and Many cultures and many religions. That is the motto of UNAOC and its raison d’etre.”
  • “This Plan is elaborated in consonance with Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which affirms the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion, noting that this right includes the right of individuals and communities to manifest their religions and beliefs in teaching, practice, worship and observance. It is conceived as an action-oriented framework for action with suggested recommendations to support relevant stakeholders in their efforts to prevent possible attacks against religious sites and enhance preparedness to safeguard religious sites and worshippers. At the same time, this Plan is mindful that Member States have the primary responsibility in protecting their population throughout their territories.” READ MORE

The guiding “light” for this ecumenical extravaganza was the “Ring of Peace.” A 25-foot wooden ring-shaped sculpture was erected by the organizers to be a “permanent, multi-faith symbol” of interfaith cooperation. According to the creators of this modern-day idol, the ring is supposed to represent the wheel of Buddha, the ring of the Prophet Mohammed, the ring of King Solomon and Lessing’s Ring Parable – a story which equates different faiths as one.

“In many world religions, the ring symbolizes loyalty, truthfulness and honesty. The Buddhist Wheel of Life, the signet ring of the Prophet Mohammed in Islam, the Ring of Solomon in Judaism or Lessing’s Ring Parable, are only a few examples.”

“As a ’round whole,’ equal and absolute in itself, the ring symbolizes the complementary and mutually completing nature of world religions, whose unity embodies the entirety of the consciousness.

This ceremony celebrates the “mutually completing” and “complimentary” nature of all the religions of the world. In other words, this is a call to all people of different faith systems to appreciate, cooperate, accept and praise each other. The “Ring of Peace” is a monument to every deity known to man – Jesus, Allah, Shiva, Buddha, Brahma, Ganesha, Mahavira, Vishnu, Durga and a thousand other gods.

Pope Pushes One World Religion on Israel’s Independence Day

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz February 11, 2020 , 2:51 pm

They have said: ‘Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.’ For they have consulted together with one consent; against Thee do they make a covenant; The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites.” Psalms 83:5-7 (The Israel Bible™)

Historically, the Vatican was no friend to the Jews but its new initiative aligns the Catholic Church with Islam in a one-world religion that may be the biggest threat ever to the Jewish People. A major event to advance the project will take place on the anniversary of the birth of the State of Israel which, according to one rabbi, is fitting since Judaism is the last bastion, entirely incompatible with a New World Order.

At an address to Vatican diplomats last month, Pope Francis announced that the Vatican will be hosting a global event with titled,  “Reinventing the Global Compact on Education.” 

“A global educational pact is needed to educate us in universal solidarity and a new humanism,” the Pope said when he first proposed the summit.

A Vatican-backed website to promote the pact added: “Educating young people in fraternity, in learning to overcome divisions and conflicts, promote hospitality, justice and peace: Pope Francis has invited everyone who cares about the education of the young generation to sign a Global Pact, to create a global change of mentality through education.”

The Pope described the need for the global alliance.

“‘Never before has there been such need to unite our efforts in a broad educational alliance, to form mature individuals capable of overcoming division and antagonism, and to restore the fabric of relationships for the sake of a more fraternal humanity,’” he said.

The Pope cited the aphorism “It takes a village to raise a child,” explaining its place in his global vision.

“All change, like the epochal change we are now experiencing, calls for a process of education and the creation of an educational village capable of forming a network of open and human relationships,” he said. 

“Education is not limited to school and university classrooms,” the Pope said at the address last month. “[It is] principally ensured by strengthening and reinforcing the primary right of the family to educate, and the right of Churches and social communities to support and assist families in raising their children.”

The education initiative is a continuation of the Pope’s global vision as laid out in his Document on the Human Brotherhood for World Peace and Common Living Together signed by Pope Francis and Sheikh Ahmed el-Tayeb, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, in February 2019 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. 

The agreement between the two religious leaders was criticized for its stance on the diversity of religions.

“The fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected,” the document read. “As too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept.”

Rabbi Pinchas Winston,  a prolific end-of-times author, noted that in many surprising respects, the Vatican is now practically indistinguishable from secularism.

“It used to be that the Catholic Church was the bastion that stood against liberalism in every way, denouncing it as heresy,” Rabbi Winston said. “This was the case for as long as the Vatican could impose its will on its people and influence the rest of the world. That reality has changed because they don’t have that power anymore. Pope Francis is a result of this change. He is a ‘man of the people.’”

Rabbi Winston noted that traditional values in the Catholic Church are indeed changing in ways that would have been inconceivable not so long ago.

“They used to say that secular values and liberalism were bad but when the people changed and liberalism became widespread, the Vatican reversed that position.,” Rabbi Winston said. “How can a religion claim to be from God when a man can decide to change it?”

Rabbi Winston noted that the theme of one-world order as presented by the Pope was presented several times in the Bible.

“Seeing the world as one is how it was in the days before the Tower of Babel,” Rabbi Winston said. “This was when men joined together to take over the world and kick God out.”

Rabbi Winston noted that the counterintuitive mix of secular intellectualism and religion appeared later in Genesis.

“According to Midrash, Esau impressed his father, Isaac, with questions that seemed to relate to religion but were only leveled on the intellectual level. The real intent of the questions was to generate chaos and division. The erev rav (mixed multitude) works this way, by making it appear that their intentions are pure and that they are good people. But their real intent is destructive; to disable truth.” 

“The secular present universalism as the source of all brotherhood but it is exactly the opposite. There is more diversity in the world than ever before in human history. To have one way to worship God before Moshiach (Messiah) comes and brings everyone up to speed is not realistic and harmful to anyone who does not conform. The Pope should be smart enough to realize that there are very good reasons for the differences. People are different. This new initiative by the Vatican is classic liberalism in the garb of religion.”

The date of the global educational summit is May 14, precisely 72 years after Israel proclaimed its independence. Rabbi Winston suggested that this could have a deeper meaning, indicating the inherent conflict between the Jewish People and universal religion.

“They can’t get rid of the Jews and what they represent anymore by simply attacking us, which was how it was done for 2,000 years,” Rabbi Winston said. “Are they trying to get rid of the Jews and the Torah by creating one world religion? Anyone who wants a one-world order has to get rid of the Jews because all of human history has proven that the core of Torah Judaism doesn’t change, even, when necessary, and the cost of death. We are still the same people in the same land with the same Torah.”

Roman Catholic Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò Says That Pope Francis Is Fulfilling The Revelation Prophecy Of The Coming Synagogue Of Satan

In his first testimony, Archbishop Viganò also stated that he informed Cardinal Sandri, along with Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, about Theodore McCarrick’s decades-long abuse of priests and seminarians. Sandri was one of several high-ranking prelates who “knew in every detail the situation regarding Cardinal McCarrick,” he testified. Archbishop Viganò concludes: “ The faithful have a right to know these sordid intrigues of a corrupt court. In the Heart of the Church we seem to glimpse the approaching shadow of Satan’s synagogue (Rev 2:9).”

by Geoffrey Grider January 31, 2020

SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN: In a new testimony touching upon the election of the next Pope, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has alleged that the cardinal whom Pope Francis recently approved to preside over the next papal conclave was involved in covering up the misdeeds of infamous Legionary of Christ founder, Marciel Maciel.

I was a Roman Catholic for the first 29 years of my life, until the day I got saved and became a born again Christian, and I have spent the past tens years in this ministry of Now The End Begins to warn people about the lies and evil foundations of the counterfeit Christian Church. So it makes me happy when high-ranking and currently serving members of the Roman Catholic Church says things like what you will see in this article today that backs me up.

“And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” Revelation 2:8,9 (KJB)

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, who has been warning people about Pope Francis for years now, makes a startling charge that the pope is a deceiver, a liar, and actively engaged in multiple cover-ups on a variety of levels. Vigano goes so far as to say that Pope Francis is turning the Roman Catholic Church into the synagogue of Satan, and guess what? He’s right. We have previously told you how Vigano exposed the ‘Gay Mafia‘ in the Roman Catholic Church, as well as the ‘homosexual network‘ that exists there and that Pope Francis works to keep hidden.

“When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.” Matthew 24:15-18 (KJB)

Regular readers of NTEB are acutely aware that Pope Francis spent all of 2019 forming an alliance with Islam, signing a covenant with them, and began to put the framework in place for the coming One World Religion of Chrislam. The Bible tells us, in Revelation, that the One World Religion will have the Roman Catholic Church as it’s base, and that Antichrist will rule the world from there. In the middle of the time of Jacob’s trouble, Antichrist will move to take over Jerusalem and indeed sit on the throne of the rebuilt Jewish Temple. This triggers the Matthew 24 warning for the Jews to flee to Selah Petra, where God Himself will sustain them supernaturally for three and one half years.

“For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:3,4 (KJB)

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, we congratulate you on your keen sense of perception and discernment in noting that Pope Francis is in the process of creating the synagogue of Satan, and since you found your way into the book of Revelation, something you rarely see any Catholic do, let me offer you another verse from Revelation that will help you as well. In Revelation 17 and 18, the Bible is describing to us the Roman Catholic Church and the Vatican superstructure. And in Revelation 18, quoted above, God gives a warning to all Catholics to flee from the Roman harlot while there is still time. So let me invite you in joining me as an ex-Catholic, and to walk in new life with Jesus Christ by becoming born again. The Roman Catholic Church is indeed the synagogue of Satan, and will become the synagogue of Satan in the time of Jacob’s trouble. Leave while you can.

Viganò Says Pope Francis Creating Synagogue Of Satan

FROM LIFE SITE NEWS: In a statement released on January 31 and titled “The faithful have the right to know”, Archbishop  Carlo Maria Viganò asserts that Pope Francis’s confirmation of Cardinal Leonardo Sandri as Vice-Dean of the College of Cardinals is a “masterpiece of deception.”

On Saturday, January 25, the Holy See announced that Pope Francis had confirmed the election of Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re, 86, and Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, 76, as Dean and Vice-Dean of the College of Cardinals respectively. The announcement came one month after Cardinal Angelo Sodano, 92, resigned as Dean of the Sacred College.

Francis’s approval of these elections “has gone almost unnoticed and yet conceals a devious strategy,” Archbishop Viganò writes.

The former apostolic nuncio to the United States contends that the confirmation of Cardinal Re as Dean of the Sacred College is “a cover for that other more effective appointment — of Cardinal Sandri — which has been prepared ad hoc to pilot the next conclave secundum Franciscum, that is, according to an updated and augmented edition of the St. Gallen Mafia.”

Role Of The Dean And Vice-Dean 

The Dean of the College of Cardinals presides over the Sacred College. When a Pope dies (or in the case of Benedict XVI has resigned), the Dean is tasked with communicating to all the cardinals that the pontiff has passed and summoning them to Rome for a papal conclave.

The word “conclave” refers to the time in which the cardinals are locked inside the Sistine Chapel to elect a new Pope. Only those cardinals who are under the age of 80 are eligible to enter the conclave and vote. The Dean of the College presides over the conclave and also oversees what are called the pre-conclave “congregations,” at which cardinals discuss the logistics and planning for the conclave, and importantly, meet their brother cardinals and get to know their positions. All of the cardinals, even those who cannot vote in the actual election for reasons of age, are eligible to participate in the congregations. Such was the case with former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick in 2013.

The Vice-Dean’s role is to act as a substitute when the Dean cannot exercise his office. At 86 years of age, Cardinal Re, as newly elected Dean, is not eligible to enter into or preside at the next conclave and will therefore cede this role to 76-year-old Cardinal Sandri.

Cardinal Re will still oversee the congregations, but Cardinal Sandri, as Vice-Dean of the College of Cardinals, will exercise the most important role — to preside over the election of the next Pope. This is not a novelty. In 2013, after the resignation of Benedict XVI, for reasons of age, Cardinal Angelo Sodano ceded this role to then-Vice-Dean, Cardinal Re, who presided over the election of Pope Francis.

A Web Of Coverup?

In his new statement, Archbishop Viganò recalls his first testimony in August 2018, in order to reiterate that “the person chiefly responsible for covering up the misdeeds committed by Maciel was then-Secretary of State Cardinal Angelo Sodano.”

“Unfortunately for him, Sandri also allowed himself to be involved by Sodano in this operation to cover up Maciel’s horrible misdeeds,” he adds.

Drawing on his first-hand experience as a member of the diplomatic corps and high-level official in the Vatican Secretariat of State, Archbishop Viganò testifies that through a series of “shady maneuvers,” Cardinal Sandri was transferred to Mexico, to replace Archbishop Justo Mullor, who “was removed from the Apostolic Nunciature in Mexico because he opposed the directives coming from the Secretariat of State to cover up the very serious accusations against Marcial Maciel.”

Archbishop Viganò writes: 

“To replace Archbishop Mullor in Mexico City, it was necessary to appoint a person of unfailing loyalty to Sodano. Sandri had already given proof of this as Assessor for the section of General Affairs in the Secretariat of State. Serving at the time as Nuncio in Venezuela for just a little over two years, he was transferred to Mexico.”

This new testimony echoes his first, in which he wrote:

“It is known that Sodano tried to cover up the Father Maciel scandal to the end. He even removed the Nuncio in Mexico City, Justo Mullor, who refused to be an accomplice in his scheme to cover Maciel, and in his place appointed Sandri, then-Nuncio to Venezuela, who was willing to collaborate in the cover-up.”

In his first testimony, Archbishop Viganò also stated that he informed Cardinal Sandri, along with Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, about Theodore McCarrick’s decades-long abuse of priests and seminarians. Sandri was one of several high-ranking prelates who “knew in every detail the situation regarding Cardinal McCarrick,” he testified.

Cardinal Sandri’s links to the Legionaries of Christ and allegations that he kept quiet about Maciel’s misdeeds have been reported widely in both the Italian and English-speaking media, recently and in past years.

Archbishop Viganò notes his “long-standing friendship” with Cardinal Sandri that dates back 50 years to their shared time in the Pontifical Ecclesiastic Academy (a training academy for Vatican diplomats) and the Secretariat of State. He also affirms that his new testimony is inspired “solely” by the bond of that friendship and is offered “for the good of his soul, for the love of the Truth who is Christ Himself, and for the Church, His Bride, whom we served together.”

The former US nuncio also testifies that Pope Francis, having asked him about Sandri, knew about his character and the Mexico transfer, and “promoted

[him]

to Cardinal-Priest in May 2018 and a month later to Cardinal-Bishop, so that he might confirm him as Vice-Dean of the College of Cardinals, a candidate prepared by Francis to preside at the next Conclave.”

Archbishop Viganò concludes: “The faithful have a right to know these sordid intrigues of a corrupt court. In the Heart of the Church we seem to glimpse the approaching shadow of Satan’s synagogue (Rev 2:9).”

Conservative leader says UMC is ‘irretrievably broken’ over homosexuality debate

By Michael Gryboski, Christian Post Reporter | Monday, January 27, 2020

A conservative United Methodist Church leader has stated his support for a proposal that allows UMC churches to leave the denomination over LGBT issues.

The Rev. Joseph F. DiPaolo, member of the Wesleyan Covenant Association Council, said that while he used to support staying with the UMC to “contend for the faith once delivered to the saints,” he stated that “I no longer believe that is possible.”

Recently, UMC leaders representing diverse views on the LGBT debate announced their support for a proposal called the “Protocol of Reconciliation and Grace through Separation.

If approved, the protocol would allocate $25 million for conservative Methodists to vote to leave the UMC and create their own Church, tentatively labeled “traditionalist Methodist.”

DiPaolo argued in a column Friday that the UMC is “irretrievably broken” due to the debate over homosexuality.

“Progressive clergy, churches and conferences stepped up their campaign of resistance, through defiance of our disciplinary covenant,” he wrote.

“Many bishops have been complicit, either through overt support, or by failing to exercise any meaningful accountability toward those who break their covenantal vows.”

He called the proposal for separation “the doorway” to “a vibrant, renewed and global Wesleyan movement.”

The UMC Book of Discipline currently states that homosexuality is “incompatible with Christian teaching” and prohibits clergy from blessing or being involved in same-sex marriages.

Nevertheless, many conservatives within the denomination have talked of leaving the denomination due to the endless debate and refusal on the part of liberals to enforce the rules.

While the protocol remains a proposal, the measure has garnered great attention since many prominent church leaders across the theological spectrum have expressed support for it.

In addition to the WCA, the theologically liberal UMC advocacy group Reconciling Ministries Network is also backing the protocol.

“RMN supports efforts for broad reform in The United Methodist Church so that the Church can begin to repent of its anti-LGBTQ past and present and so that it can begin a new way of being the Church unpredicated on its U.S.-centric origins,” stated RMN earlier this month.

“In addition, the Church’s inflexible governance processes and structures may have proved adequate in an earlier era, but they are insufficient for the ministry needs of the world today.”

The UMC will hold its next General Conference, where legislative proposals regarding a possible schism will be entertained, in Minneapolis on May 5-15.

CHRISLAM COVENANT: Is Trump Preparing To Combine His ‘Deal Of The Century’ Middle East Peace Plan With Pope Francis’ Abrahamic Faiths Initiative

VP Mike Pence arrived at the Vatican for what was billed as a ‘meet and greet’, then stunned everyone by turning into a high-level, closed-door meeting on something so sensitive that neither party was willing to discuss it. And within mere hours of that bombshell, President Trump announced he was finally ready to reveal his ‘Deal Of The Century’ Middle East Peace Plan, and asked Benjamin Netanyahu to fly to Washington this coming Tuesday, for a meeting on that very subject. Do you see where all this is heading? Trump has the relationship with Israel, Pope Francis has the relationship with the Muslims, put the two together and….peace in the Middle East?

by Geoffrey Grider January 25, 2020

President Trump announced he is finally ready to reveal his ‘Deal Of The Century’ Middle East Peace Plan, and has asked Benjamin Netanyahu to fly to Washington this coming Tuesday. So what does that have to do with Chrislam? Plenty.

Suddenly, everything begins to makes sense. From one side, I have been watching Donald Trump over the past three and a half years, the man that God placed in power of the world’s strongest and most-prosperous nation, doing amazing things for the nation of Israel. The thing he wants most to do in Israel is his ‘Deal Of The Century‘ Middle East Peace Plan, headed up by his Jewish son in law, Jared Kushner.

“Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.” Isaiah 28:14-16 (KJB)

On the other side, I have been watching Pope Francis over the past 7 years, weaving and scheming to build the One World Religion of Chrislam. In 2019, things came to a head as Chrislam, otherwise known as the Abrahamic Faiths Initiative, was finally formalized. The peace covenant document known as ‘Human Fraternity For World Peace‘ was signed by Pope Francis and Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, and sealed by kissing each other on the mouth. Chrislam.

For quite awhile, I viewed both these paradigms as something happening separately from each other, until today. The thing that always nagged at me in the back of my mind was how to combine the two and keep all parties happy at the same time. It was seemingly impossible. Then last week, U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See, Callista Gingrich, held a meeting at her office at the Vatican and declared to Pope Francis that the United States is “fully committed to working with you to advance our shared goals of mutual respect, religious freedom, and peaceful coexistence” in regards to the Abrahamic Faiths Initiative, otherwise known as Chrislam.

Leaked Items in the upcoming ‘Deal Of The Century’:

  • Israeli sovereignty in all 100-plus West Bank settlements, all but 15 of which would be territoriality contiguous. (An estimated 400,000 Jews live in some 120 official settlements.)
  • Israeli sovereignty throughout Jerusalem, including the Old City, with only “symbolic Palestinian representation” in Jerusalem.
  • Were Israel to accept the deal, and the Palestinians to reject it, Israel would have US support to begin annexing settlements unilaterally.
  • The Palestinians will be granted statehood, but only if Gaza is demilitarized, Hamas gives up its weapons, and the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state with Jerusalem as its capital.

Then just yesterday, VP Mike Pence arrived at the Vatican for what was billed as a ‘meet and greet’, then stunned everyone by turning into a high-level, closed-door meeting on something so sensitive that neither party was willing to discuss it. I bet it was about Chrislam. And within mere hours of that bombshell, President Trump announced he was finally ready to reveal his ‘Deal Of The Century’ Middle East Peace Plan, and asked Benjamin Netanyahu to fly to Washington this coming Tuesday, for a meeting on that very subject. Chrislam.

Do you see where all this is heading? Trump has the relationship with Israel, Pope Francis has the relationship with the Muslims, put the two together and….peace in the Middle East? Sure seems like it to me. The missing ingredient that no other political leader has had in the past 70 years is Chrislam. Rick Warren started it, handed the baton with full evangelical support to Pope Francis, the pope then signed a covenant with Islam, and the Trump administration has thrown in their full support in the same week as announcing they are finally ready with the Peace Plan. Across the board you have complete and total harmony, everyone gets something, everyone is happy.

Peace and safety all around. Hello, Chrislam, and hello Antichrist.

Maybe this is all wild speculation, and maybe I am on to something, but let me say this. In the nearly 30 years I have pondered how peace in the Middle East between the Jews and the Palestinians could be possible, this is the one way that would actually work. Chrislam. Now let’s see if I’m right. And if I am, Flight #777 is not boarding, it’s taking off.

Are you ready for what comes next?
