Pope Francis Urges World Leaders to ‘Hear the Cry of the Earth’

"Pope Francis has once again waded into ecological waters, inviting all people to pray for the environment while urging world leaders to “hear the cry of the earth.” …We no longer respect nature as a shared gift; instead, we regard it as a private possession. We no longer associate with nature in order to sustain it; instead, we lord over it to support our own constructs. …The human environment and the natural environment are deteriorating together, and this deterioration of the planet weighs upon the most vulnerable of its people."–

Since he came into office, and yes I said office and not the church because the Vatican is not just a church structure. It is first and foremost a political entity, a literal nation on its own. It is a church and state as prophecy predicted and being as such the man of sin in Rome has the ability to destroy people’s lives in both the physical and spiritual spectrum. So we must always expect him to lean towards whatever will benefit the Vatican most and their long prophesied agenda towards the enforcement of the mark upon every disobedient soul on earth because I've never heard this Pope or any other Pope ever actually say anything that would spiritually bless any soul on earth. And yes, that is a biblical fact for it is also stated in James 3:10, "Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be." And as we know, every Pope has claimed to echo Scripture while at the same time preaching Paganism which if embraced curses the soul with damnation.
That all being said, since he was elected by his exceptionally corrupt cabinet of prelates with a centuries old method of fixing the outcome, have we ever heard him preach a sermon on a global scale regarding the need of all of mankind to seek Christ Jesus as Lord and Saviour so as to escape the damnation headed their way due to the many sins of the world that entail everything from homosexuality to drunkenness? After all, mankind has been crying out for deliverance from such things for eons. No, like all the Popes before him, you have not heard him use the largest modern day pulpit available on this planet to preach Christ crucified. Instead of doing as all Christian that truly do obey Jesus would do if they had the same audience to proclaim the Gospel message, he chooses rather to pander to and literally promote homosexuality, same sex marriages, alcohol consumption, euthanasia,  illegal immigration, Islam, rape, redistribution of wealth, Socialism, belittlement of Christ's death (TWICE on camera) communism, ecumenicalism, Sunday laws, removal of sovereignty for all nations, abortion, Mary worship and evolution just to name a few of the many that come to mind. And as I was looking for the articles and such to show I am not kidding in regards to his true message, I ran across some Catholic monks that I heard about years ago that have listed their disgust for the last few popes in writing. In other words, even the Pope's own ordained monks expose him and his predecessors as being very evil men.

So why is it the Pope speaks volumes on things that entice and excite the worldly among us instead of sharing Jesus who will help them find the peace they are searching for? It's because the Popes of Rome truly are the prophesied man of sin. And since they are all about the world they worship, it's only fitting that when Satan needs them to help him enforce his mark upon the people of the world that seeing how the Popes worship the world over and above the Creator of it as Romans 1:25 predicted, the climate change agenda was a no-brainer for Satan to use to help puff up the one man on earth who represents just how far Satan can get any soul that obeys him into loving all that the world has to offer. And so instead of hearing any Pope urge the world's leaders to "hear the cry of the lost" so as to gain many souls for Heaven as is the duty of every real Christian, this Pope like his predecessors urges leaders to "hear the cry of the earth" just as any real Pagan does and has done since they started dancing under every green tree in the hills since time began. Look in your Bibles to see how this angered the Lord in Deuteronomy 12:2 as well as many other areas of the Word. They have been doing this ever since Satan was cast to this earth.

Now yes, I expect some Catholics to email me a homily or two from the present Pope wherein he does mention Jesus Christ and salvation on occasion. In fact I welcome and even implore you to send me that sermon if you can find it. For I am sure, as I was once Catholic 3 decades ago, and I know for fact how Catholic sermons are written. If you allow me to do so I will show you what you send isn't actually a sermon at all. It is a Vatican promotional speech seeking to both fill the pews as well as keep them warm with souls that refuse to open Bibles to discover their Pope is openly lying to them. And so, email me that sermon and I will do all I can to place the truth back in context for you so as to help you see you need to "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." -Revelation 18:4. And yes, Jesus called you "my people" in that passage. But also keep in mind that you are only considered "my people" when you obey Him to the best of your ability as well as in the expectation that you will obey Him as Lord once more and literally COME OUT.

As for trucebreakers, I am sure each and every one of us have been promised something by someone who later broke that promise. Yes, that seems like no big deal because not only have we been victims of this in our past, we too have been trucebreakers as well. It used to be a man's word was his bond. Today, that is an absolute rarity. In fact, it actually comes off as peculiar for someone to be an honest and reliable promise keeper. As for the false accusers in our society. The prisons are filled with men that are in jail for crimes they did not commit. Not only do the criminals accuse them falsely, the prosecuting attorneys do so as well and actually get away with it even after DNA proves them innocent.

As for being fierce, we have everything from violent criminals, raging sportsmen, crazed bikers, to actual serial killers to fill that list. And the prophecy that says they will be despisers of those that are good. I would think all of us have seen this come to fruition in our own lives more than a few times. For example, you can walk into a room filled with loved ones and tell them you decided to quit smoking and drinking one day. All of them will applaud you and declare you a better man than they are. But if you finish the sentence and tell them you quit smoking and drinking because you became a Christian and found it was wrong to do. Suddenly they all turn their smiles into frowns and ridicule you for trying to be better than they are.

And yes, we have seen traitors step up in all sorts of ways in society. Everything from leaders of large corporations to politicians bowing so low to the lusts of the flesh and wealth that they become traitors against their coworkers or fellow citizens simply for the gain to self. Even the presidents of our nation have done this more than a few times over the last few decades alone.

As for the highminded mentioned here; I have met men that have claimed to be pastors that were never ordained of God, I have met men who have claimed to be elders in the church that have shown to be liars and quite hateful to their neighbors instead, and I have met many that have claimed to be Christians simply to hide their shame. Almost everyone we meet today puts off an air of self elevation or acting as if they are someone they are not that it's almost as if all the world's a stage wherein people play act a part the minute they get up in the morning to the minute they go to bed each and every day.

As for the lovers of pleasure over God, I've met many that claim to be Christian who were drunks, and drug addicts all my life. I have met people that lived and died in gutters because the pleasures of the flesh far outweighed the love God has for them. This has to be the strangest sin I have ever seen in all my life. People actually destroy their lives and die very young simply because of a very temporary feeling they get from a drug! Not to mention other more perverted means by which to entice the flesh that I will not get into here but the animal instinct of man plays a huge part here for many. And finally, how many of us have seen those that claim to be leaders in the mainstream church. You know the TV preachers and such. They claim to be godly at every turn, but when a trial comes or a disaster hits, they are the first to claim even God couldn't have stopped it. I recall a preacher who many years ago claimed there were things even God Himself couldn't control when he was speaking at the gravesite of a young girl that was murdered by a serial killer in his town. I have the article in my People Get Ready book. In other words, that pastor was actually a scoffer!

Question: Are homosexual people born that way or demon possessed? Is there a Bible scripture that talks about a homosexual being healed with a demon cast out?

ANSWER:
No, homosexuals are not born that way. Their own bodies speak against them in fact. If they were born homosexual, then why do they have sex organs that require the opposite sex to procreate? If the people of the world would study up on the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah I am sure they too would realize it is nothing more than sinful lust.

The way I see it, Satan knows God created man in His image. As we all know, Satan cannot pass up any opportunity to soil that image. He has men  who are created in God’s image do all sorts of evil acts all throughout history. Murder, torture, theft, and rape are just a few crimes that men do that soil the image they are created in. But none so slanders the image of God then does homosexuality. It brings man down to the same level as animals when men do such things with their bodies.

I don’t know many homosexual people. I can count them on one hand and have many fingers left over. But I do recall two such instances where a homosexual was cast free of a demon that made them crave sex in a perverted way. In fact, both these people, one was a man, the other a woman, placed full page adds in Chicago Newspapers many years apart from each other wherein they described how they came to realize that they were possessed when Jesus cast them free. Not only were they free of the demon, the vulgar and perverted acts became very disgusting to them. When I read those articles, and  how they described what Jesus did for them, it became quite clear it was in fact a demon in them.

And no, I do not know of a verse that says a homosexual was cast free of a demon in the Bible. This is not to say it is impossible of course. There are many different types of demons and Jesus wasn't about to point out each and every one because casting one out sufficiently proved all demons, no matter what their sinful preference was were easy game for Christ the Lord to cast free of His people. Just like there are many different diseases, there are many demons

Matthew 5:19 _______________________________________________

“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all

“Ye have heard that it was said..., Thou shalt not commit adultery:
But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” Matthew 5:27, 28.

Since they served only as a foreshadowing of Christ, those provisional laws were no longer needed after His death.

11. Christ nailed to the cross and blotted out the handwriting of what which was against us?
