The End Times Church: of Popes, False Prophets and the Anti-Christ

The media coverage of the death of Pope John Paul II will be seen on television by over two billion people, nearly 1/3 of the world’s population, positioning the deceptive doctrine of the Catholic Church as true “Christianity” and ushering in the end-time church that may well give rise to the anti-Christ and the false prophet as prophesied in the Bible.

Theologically, the Catholic Church taking the lead to pray for peace by inviting hundreds of representatives from other religions to participate could be a type and shadow of the one world religion as prophesied in Revelation and Daniel. Indeed, the anti-Christ initially will rise to power as a peace broker between Israel and the rest of the world as prophesied in Daniel 9:27, “Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week (7 years); but in the middle of the week (3 1⁄2 years) he shall bring and end to sacrifice and offering.” Revelation 13:7-8 says, “And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue and nation. All who dwell on earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
