False Prophet: Revelation 13:11-17.
11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he 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.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Revelation 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
Revelation 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
Revelation 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
The “Document on Human Fraternity” blurs the distinction and changes the meaning of fraternity, extending it to the relationships between peoples of different religions, as if Muslims and Christians are “brothers and sisters” praying to the same God.
Roman Catholicism legitimizes prayers to other deities or religious ideals, silencing the prophetic message of Scripture that we either serve the biblical God or idols. It fails to bear witness to the claims of Jesus Christ as the God-man who came to save those who believe in him, and instead changes the meaning of fraternity by stretching it indiscriminately to all humanity, rather than believers in Jesus only. In so doing, the tenets of the biblical faith are trampled on.
This is a further move away from biblical Christianity. Not being anchored in Scripture alone, not being committed to Christ alone, Roman Catholicism is anxious to extend its ever-expanding catholicity (i.e. all-encompassing embracement) in all directions, even those clearly contrary to the basics of the Christian faith.
Revelation 17:1-9. Mystery Religion in Babylon (NEOM). False religion. NEOM is the great city of many peoples and false (non-Christian) religions that sits on seven (7) mountains which is the center of spiritual humanism, abominations, fornications, blasphemies and filthiness. Religious coexistence and acceptance of all non-Christian religions, the brotherhood, fraternity of cultural inclusivity, secular peace, tolerance, rejection of extremism, religious dialogue, social goals, ecology and salvation by human efforts and agreements. A demonic mix of compromised, false Christianity (Catholicism) with moderate Islam that accepts other false religions like Hinduism, Buddhism, Humanism, (‘isms’). Everything but the true worship and acknowledgement of Christ and his offer of salvation through the shedding of his blood on the cross, and his forgiveness of our sins through his death and resurrection. Christ is completely ignored and rejected in the religious soup-from-hell or the mystery religion that is served in the great end-times restaurant known as Babylon (NEOM). False prophet proclaims “ALL religions are willed by God.”
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever
Mystery Religion and (5) ‘Human Fraternity, Coexistence, Brotherhood, Inter-Religious Dialogue and False Religious Peace’; No deal with Israel yet, but Saudi Arabia pushes outreach to Jews. MUST READ!
Efforts include barring disparagement of Jews, Christians in mosques; officials say textbooks, which used to denigrate Jews and other non-Muslims as swine and apes, being revised
By ANUJ CHOPRA Times of Israel September 23, 2020
AFP — From scrubbing hate-filled school textbooks to a taboo-defying religious sermon, Saudi Arabia is pushing for another kind of normalization after declining to establish formal relations with Israel — co-existence with Jews.
Saudi Arabia has said it will not follow its allies Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates in establishing diplomatic relations without a resolution to the Palestinian issue, even as it cultivates clandestine ties with the Jewish state.
Having Saudi Arabia, an Arab powerhouse and epicenter of Islam, forge a similar deal would be the ultimate diplomatic prize for Israel, but the kingdom is wary that its citizens — sympathetic to the Palestinian cause — may not be ready for a full embrace.
Saudi Arabia, however, is pushing to change public perceptions about Jews with a risky outreach to a community that has long been vilified by the kingdom’s clerical establishment and media, laying the groundwork for an eventual recognition.
School textbooks, once well-known for denigrating Jews and other non-Muslims as “swines” and “apes,” are undergoing revision as part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s campaign to combat extremism in education, officials say.
“The Saudi government has also decided to prohibit the disparagement of Jews and Christians in mosques,” said Saudi analyst Najah al-Otaibi. “Anti-Jewish rhetoric was common at Friday prayers of the imams in mosques used to address Muslims around the world.”
In a stunning U-turn, a preacher in the holy city of Mecca triggered a social media storm this month when he spoke of ‘Prophet Mohammed’s’ friendly relations with Jews to advocate religious tolerance. (Note; the Islamic ‘clerics and imams’ have recently inferred that MbS is the ‘Mujaddid’ or anointed prophet to come in the end days to strengthen and revitalize Islam (those who worship the dragon and SOON the BEAST.)
The sermon was by Abdulrahman al-Sudais, the imam of Mecca’s Grand Mosque who courted controversy in the past for strongly anti-Semitic views.
‘When, not if’
Mohammed al-Issa, a Saudi cleric who heads the Muslim World League, won praise from Israel in January after he traveled to Poland for events marking 75 years since the Nazi death camp Auschwitz was liberated.
Earlier this year, the kingdom announced the screening of a Holocaust-themed film for the first time at a movie festival, before it was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“When it comes to Saudi Arabia and Israel establishing relations, it is a question of ‘when’, not ‘if,’” said Marc Schneier, an American rabbi with close relations to Gulf rulers.
“Part of the process that all Gulf countries have and are going through on the road to normalization is first pushing warmer ties between Muslims and Jews and then moving more boldly into discussing Israel and the Gulf.”
Arab News, the kingdom’s main English-language daily, whipped up a social media storm at the weekend when it briefly changed its social media banner on Twitter and Facebook with a greeting in Hebrew for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.
The newspaper recently published a lengthy series on the Jews of Lebanon, and plans a similar installment on an ancient Jewish community that lived in what is today Saudi Arabia.
The newspaper’s editor Faisal Abbas told AFP the coverage “was not tied to Israel” but aimed at connecting with “Arab Jews worldwide.”
‘Difficult to happen’
The coverage marks a departure for tightly controlled media in the absolute monarchy.
Saudi media outlets have previously branded the Jewish state as the “Zionist” enemy, but largely hailed the recent deals struck with the UAE and Bahrain.
Fueling speculation about quietly warming relations with Israel were two television dramas on the Saudi-controlled MBC network during this year’s fasting month of Ramadan.
In a controversial scene in one of the shows, “Exit 7,” one Saudi character brushes aside the taboo of doing business with Israel, saying Palestinians are the real “enemy” for insulting the kingdom “day and night” despite decades of support.
The moves indicate that the kingdom is not opposed to normalization with the Jewish state after having resolutely supported the Palestinians politically and financially for decades, observers say.
But Israel formalizing relations with unelected Arab governments “is not the same as Israel making ‘peace’ with Arab people,” said Giorgio Cafiero, the chief executive of Gulf State Analytics.
Data from a rare Saudi public opinion poll published last month by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy suggests many Saudi citizens are not in favor of a deal.
Despite the Saudi media outreach to Israelis and Jews, “a mere nine percent of Saudis” agreed that people in favor of business or sports contacts with Israelis should be allowed to do so, according to the Institute’s David Pollock.
“What peace? Peace after all that (Israel) has done, killing and war?” Bader, a young Saudi citizen in Riyadh, told AFP.
“It’s difficult for this to happen between (Saudis and Israelis). I won’t support it.”
