I hope this piece of writing will make both logical and spiritual sense as you read it.
I write to air concerns on a video being circulated on social media platforms by many Seventh Day Adventists believers purporting to be from Pope Francis stating that he is the Antichrist, the Man of Sin and that this whole crisis is to lead us to world wide unity and the Mark of the Beast. The video is in Italian but with English subtitles.
Well as one familiar with languages and having seen the original video before, I clearly and categorically state that video is doctored and its translation is far from what the Pope was talking about. Those desiring to check the original video and make comparisons with the circulated video can search for:
“Pope Sends An iPhone Video Message for Christian Unity”
Why then does this concern me when am Adventist and not Catholic? Simple, I hate religious or church lies regardless of who perpertuates them in this case some Seventh Day Adventists.
While it is true that we are headed for worldwide fiscal and religious unity which will eventually culminate in the enforcing of the Mark of the Beast and the number 666, it is unspiritual to evoke a revival based on malignment and accusations all to call people to your church(es).
No matter how genuine you are in calling people to church for the Lord Jesus, you show by lying that you are ignorant and unrepented coz lies and accusations belong to Satan who has been lying from the beginning John 8:44, and is an accuser of the brethren Revelation 12:10.
Being familiar with the writings of Ellen G. White and read “Modern Revivals” in the book “The Great Controversy” you should have learnt by now that lies don’t convict unbelievers nor sanctify them and that the cheaper the messages used to draw people to God the less their conviction of sin (paraphrase).
By doctoring and circulating a video full of lies to win followers, you actually cease to be Christians and become like others you condemn who perform false miracles, give false and fake prophecies all to draw numbers to themselves for tithes and offerings.
I End by saying that you are missing it and should watch your zealousness as it will ruin you. Prophecy will and is unfolding but not forcefully or as carefully watched as you want it.
Have A Great Friday.
Your Fellow Adventist Brother.
