One world religion

This is a 3 part message

Part 1

The  Bible talks of a One World Religion and a One World Government in the  ‘later days’. (Book of Revelation) Where are we at today?

God  has always had His people, whether part of ‘organized religion’ or not.  But when looking for a One World Church, we must look for an ‘organized  common religion’,

The  first organized Christian church(s) appears to be the Roman Catholic  and Eastern Orthodox. They were common, but separate until about  1000-AD, when they cut fellowship. Protestant denominations started  another separation in the 16th century when Martin Luther broke away  from the Roman Catholic church. Today there are thousands of religions  and denominations.

For  many years now the Roman Church has worked at bringing all religions  together (John 17:21 That they may all be one...). But today this coming  together seems to be on steroids. The Roman Catholic and Eastern  Orthodox are in talks to bring their religions together. Groups of  influential evangelical leaders have met with the Pope to start working  together. The head of the World Council of Churches stated ‘I believe  that in our time God is opening new ways for us to unify...’ The Pope is  also meeting with leaders of non-Christian religions to find common  ground. Finally, there is a call for a great world wide meeting in 2025  for the merging of all world religions.

One  of the major points of contention between the Roman Catholic and other  religions is the authority of the Pope. Interestingly multiple Roman  Catholic prophesies (and others) indicate that Pope Francis will be the  last pope. As this world moves to a One World Church, will the Pope  remain in a leadership position, go away, or assume a new position in  the One World Wide Church? Only God knows and time will tell.

These are interesting days to be alive.

Part 2

 Some have asked for more information from The One World Religion article.

The  most famous of the Pope prophesies comes from a Catholic Bishop Malachy  of the 12th century. The prophecy is said to foretell, of the Roman  Catholic Popes from his lifetime till the end. Of interest today is the  fact the his prophecy ends with the Last Pope #112, which is Pope  Francis. The following link has details from the prophecy concerning the  last 10 popes

Another Catholic, Arch-Bishop Sheen 'prophesied’, 'The  false church will be worldly ecumenical, and global. It will be a loose  federation of churches. And religions forming some type of global  association. A world parliament of churches. It will be emptied of all  divine content and will be the mystical body of the Antichrist. He also stated 'Satan will recruit him (the false prophet) from among our bishops.”

Look  at the massive growth of the ecumenical movement today, especially  since Pope Francis took office. Is this ecumenical movement of Pope  Francis going to fulfill the ‘prophecies’ of Bishops Malachy and Sheen,  and form the One World Church?  We do know, the book of Revelation says,  there will be a One World Religion, it will not serve God and will be  run by The False Prophet. If the prophecies are correct, the False  Prophet will be a Bishop from the Roman Church, and will be the head of  the Harlot Church of Revelation.

Were  Malachy and Sheen Christians, and were the ‘prophesies’, from the Holy  Spirit, I don’t know. But they do line up with Revelation 17:1-9. This  passage speaks of the Harlot Church as Mother of Harlots, a woman, full  of blasphemy, full of abominations, filthiness of fornication, drunk on  the blood of God’s people, and has seven heads. A woman is reference to a  Church. The blasphemy, abominations, and fornication speak of  rebellion, sin and insults against God (Jesus Christ). Drunk with the  blood, speaks of enjoyment in killing God’s people. The seven heads is  explained in verse 9. ‘The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth’.  Rome is called the city of seven hills. Taking verse 9 and the Sheen  prophecy together, it appears that the Harlot Ecumenical Church will be  headed by a former Roman Catholic Bishop and will have it’s headquarters  in Rome, replacing the current Roman Catholic church.

The  two Roman Catholic prophecies, the one from Revelation, and current  events today, all seem to line up perfectly. How soon is the day when  Jesus returns for His True Church? Time will tell, and while we are  here, all these things will be very interesting to watch.

We are living in interesting days.

Part 3

 It does appear the One World Religion of Revelation will be an  Ecumenical Anti-God Religion. One that will not really stand for  anything, other than being against the Real Jesus Christ. This apostasy  will have an image of ‘Jesus’ as part of the church, but it will not be  the Jesus of God’s Holy Scripture.

Understand  that ecumenicalism can be profitable, for example, working together for  a common cause, such as a food pantry or pro-life. But we must be  cautious. A church that has only the name Jesus in it, or that accepts  Jesus as only a prophet, is not Christian. To be a real Christian  church, some things must be accepted as fact, including, the deity of  Christ, His sinless life, His sacrificial death and resurrection. Any  denomination, sect, or religion that does not accept at least those  simple Biblical truths is not Christian.
John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Acts 4:12
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Colossians 1:17
He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
I Corinthians 15:4
And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
Hebrews 10:12 
But this man (Jesus), after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

In  my previous article (part 2), I mentioned that it looks like the Roman  Catholic Church will be replaced by the Harlot Church of Revelation, but  be not deceived. There will be no organized ‘Christian Church’ that  will not bow it’s knee to the One World Apostate Church, or it will  cease to exist. Revelation 17:6 states, the Harlot Church will be  obsessed in killing real Christians that believe in Jesus Christ. The  Real Church of Jesus Christ will go ‘underground’, as many give their  life for Him.

This  current ecumenical (and other) movement(s) is working to water down the  Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is working to merge non-Christian religions  with Christian. Many that were once thought to be Solidly Christian, are  now denying who Jesus Christ is, and what He has done for us. These  churches will easily merge into the One World (anti-Christ) Church, of  Revelation.

Do  not depend upon any denomination to get you to Heaven. Heaven is only  available through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. No mater  what any church says, we should not, we can not, deny Jesus Christ is  God, Who came to earth, lived a perfect life, died a sacrificial death  for us, defeated death, and is now in Heaven making intersections for  us.

If  we accept Jesus as the Lord of our life and trust Him and His perfect  work to get us to Heaven we will someday hear Him say to us, ‘enter in  thou good and faithful servant’.
