Pope Francis ‘Prays To God’ That Israel’s Capital City Jerusalem Does Not Come Under Jewish Control

Wednesday, December 6, 2017 8:41
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Pope Francis defended the “status quo” of the city hours before Trump’s speech, saying: “Jerusalem is a unique city, sacred for Jews, Christians and Muslims.

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” Zechariah 12:2,3 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: As President Trump prepares to declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel later today, Pope Francis chimed in with a prayer of his own. The Pope’s prayer is that Jerusalem, a place that God says is the eternal capital of the Jewish land of Israel, remain a divided region and not be subject to Jewish rule or authority. When he says that he wants the “status quo to remain” he is saying he wants it to remain divided and out of Israeli control. Don’t you just love it when the Catholic king says and does things to reveal that he sides with Antichrist? As if there was any question…(SMH)

Pope Francis Wednesday defended the “status quo” of Jerusalem, hours ahead of an announcement by US President Donald Trump in which officials said he will recognize the disputed city as Israel’s capital.

“I pray to God that this identity is preserved and reinforced, for the sake of the Holy Land, the Middle East and the whole world, and that wisdom and prudence prevail.”

Palestinian terror group Hamas has threatened a “day of rage” on Friday in response to the announcement, releasing a chilling message ordering Palestinians to rise up and send a message to Israel.

Israel annexed eastern Jerusalem after winning the Six Day War with Jordan in 1967 but the move was not recognized by the United Nations. Israel regards it as its capital while Palestinian sees the eastern half of the city as the centre of its ‘future state’.

“I cannot silence my deep concern over the situation that has emerged in recent days. At the same time, I appeal strongly for all to respect the city’s status quo, in accordance with the relevant UN resolutions,” the pope said in his weekly address.

Trump is also expected to order the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem but this move could take several years to push through.

The United States would become the first country to make the distinction since Israel was created in 1948. The city has been at the heart of constant and violent conflicts between the nations because it is home to key religious sites holy to Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Trump’s move could not only undermine the US administration’s fledgling effort, led by his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, but anger the wider international community.

In recent days, the European Union, Germany and France have all implored Trump not to take action on Jerusalem. source

    Poor old Esau the Edomite was disappointed ! Most people don’t know that the vatican put forth papers claiming that old Jerusalem belonged to them . I guess it was forged papers ! They said they wanted to build a universal temple for the world to worship with . But wait they worship lucifer and video proof can be found on the Internet ( YouTube ) as pope butt teaches that Jesus was lucifers son , then their singer praises lucifer . You can find in Isaiah 14:12-14 and Ezkiel 28:13-15 about lucifer their father . Jesus also called them the seed of the devil and said his works they would do . Yes the vatican is the devils false prophet to the world ! They are also the NWO natzi Zionist ( nit Israel or the Jews ) pushing depopulation for 6 1/2 billion on planet earth ! They are the negative blood type reptilians so says science !

    God does not care about the physical city …the spiritual city of Jerusalem…and you missed the 2nd coming already & the pope is a heritic by definition!?!…..123’S OF TRUE CHRISTIANITY V POPULAR & DAMNABLE HERESIES
    First the devil tried to kill Christianity via persecutions and death……Now, he has since changed tactics. He is running around convincing as many lost people as possible that they are indeed Christians via empty platitudes and doctrinal nonsense with vain confessions and “faiths of fools”…..Prov 26:12; and oh yea, don’t let anyone tell you that you’re not saved coz you “know your saved” & “got the spirit”…..?!?
    Mat 7: 13. Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14. Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT……….22. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied (Rev 19;10….the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy) in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23. And then will I profess unto them, I NEVER KNEW YOU: depart from me, ye that work iniquity……These folks are surprised, shocked and “never imagined”……
    2Thess 2:10..because they received not THE LOVE of the truth, that they might be saved. 11. And for this cause GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, that they should believe a lie: 12. THAT THEY ALL MIGHT BE DAMNED who believed not the truth,

    #1 “ANOTHER JESUS”: (2Cor 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus…)
    The 1 person God not 3 different persons: Mark 12:28…Which is the first commandment of all? 29. …Hear, O Israel; THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD: 30. And ………..this is the first commandment….. 31. And the second is….. IF YOU CAN’T GET THIS “FIRST OF ALL COMMANDMENTS” RIGHT, ALL THE REST OF YOUR “FAITH” AND PREACHING ON LOVE & SIN IS MOOT….. (NOTE: And yes, the specific Greek and Hebrew words used also and only define one person contrary to the ridiculous obfuscation attempts of some!?!)

    #2 “ANOTHER GOSPEL”: (2Cor 11:4 “…or another gospel”… Do you even know what the Gospel is?!?) The “2nd coming”… “I come quickly” so “Hold fast till I come”… NOT …“in another 2000 years I might be coming soon any time now, so hold fast”!?! …those that deny the second coming of Christ in the war of AD70 (in their lifetime) are practicing a damnable heresy in denying the Lord that bought them ( 2Peter 2:1-2 ;2Tim 4:8/ you cant love an appearing you deny& the context is the 2nd coming not the first)… Mat 7:23..”I NEVER KNEW YOU” …..Mat 10:33. But whosoever shall deny me before men……..sound familiar?…. If I said I am coming to your house in this generation when these things happen but no one knows the day or hour what fool would think I might be coming in 2000 years latter!?!? ..2 Tim 4: 4. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be TURNED UNTO FABLES.

    #3 GOD LOVES EVERYONE??? Jesus Died for “you”?……
    Does God love you?….“Probably” NOT!….and NO Jesus did NOT die for everyone!?!…… “come as you are??” (Lk 3:8)
    Prov 8: 17. I LOVE THEM THAT LOVE ME …………Do you love God??
    1John 5:3. For THIS IS THE LOVE OF GOD, that we keep his commandments:
    There is a sharp contrast between THREE groups Predestination….its true..its all true… God does NOT love everyone:

    “whosoever shall call on THE NAME OF THE LORD shall be saved”
    ………So WHAT “NAME” did you “CALL UPON”?……
    Rev 19:13. .. and HIS NAME IS called THE WORD OF GOD
    Ps 138:2. praise THY NAME … for thou hast magnified THY WORD ABOVE ALL THY NAME -
    NOTE: God placed His “THE WORD” ABOVE all of God’s various NAMEs – and Jesus NAME IS called “THE WORD” no other name saves. The MOST important name we should KNOW and CALL UPON is “THE WORD”; Not letters that spell “word” but the sayings/ doctrine/commands. It does NOT say “thy word is given a name above other names because here THY WORD is identified as the name that is placed above all other names.
    Isaiah 52:1. . 6. Therefore MY PEOPLE SHALL KNOW MY NAME: ..What NAME do you “KNOW”?
    1Jn 2:3. And HEREBY WE DO KNOW that we KNOW HIM, if we KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS./ Titus 1: 16. They profess that THEY KNOW God; but IN WORKS THEY DENY him…
    “AT the name OF JESUS”…..Jesus has a name that belongs to Jesus…just like the name OF GOD means a name that belongs to GOD but it is ridiculous to suggest that the letters G-O-D is that name…likewise the name OF JESUS is NOT the letters J-E-S-U-S. Why would anyone think that you could pronounce THE HIGHEST NAME OF GOD letter by letter…. (ie Judges 13:18; 2Cor 12:4 but God’s name is not as great/wonderful and or “unspeakable” )
    Rev 3:8 kept MY WORD, and hast not DENIED MY NAME; …
    .Jn 17:6. I have MANIFESTED THY NAME And they have KEPT THY WORD.;
    THE WORD is THE NAME above every name that saves us 1Pt 3:21 The ONE baptism(Eph 4:5) is into THE WORD ( which is also baptism in the Holy spirit Jn 6:63the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit ) ..ALL the sayings doctrines and commands….what did THE WORD that became flesh command? (Mat 28:19)…..what did THE WORD exemplify? (Mat 3:15/ Jn 4:1)………among other things…..YES .water baptism is just as essential and necessary for much a part of salvation (1Pt 3:21) as is keeping one self away from works of the flesh (Gal 5:21)….In fact obedience to the command of water baptism is specifically identified as the act of calling on the name of the Lord (Col 2:12 “……though the operation[work] of God” CAN ANY MAN BE SAVED WITHOUT GOD WORKING ON HIM?) …..THE WORD OF GOD is the name of God that men call upon OR…OR ..they DENY with their disobedience
    The scriptures tell us almost nothing about the thief’s life. However, the scriptures tell us a great deal about Christ life……Jesus had been around for 3.5 years before the cross and was Baptizing (Jn 4:1-2 in fact He instructed his disciples to do so and did many more then John the Baptist ever did) …..Those who try to appeal to the thief on the cross assume the thief had never heard of Jesus preaching and had never ever been baptized….The burden of Proof is on those who say baptism is not essential! ………..You can’t claim a logically valid “non-essentiality” doctrinal argument on ANYTHING based on what the scriptures do not say and in spite of the things it clearly does state to the opposite effect!…That is like looking at the constitutional law and then basing a argument against a constitutional principle in law based on the fact that history did not record for us what some unknown cattle thief did or did not do a 150 years ago?!?! What??..Who cares?? We know what the constitution did say 150 years ago. I don’t know of any Law school that bases its teaching on constitutional law based on what history does not tell us about unknown cattle thieves!?! ..Jesus command, preached & practiced Baptism so did the apostles ….To build one’s theology on the fact that the scriptures do not tell us ANY detail(s) of the thief’s life before the cross (we know almost absolutely nothing about the thief!!) it is quite foolish and willfully ignorant of what the scriptures do say about baptism…….so those who try to use the thief are in effect building their house on the sand of what scriptures do not say about a thief in spite of what the scriptures do specifically tell us about baptism!?!… “Their damnation is just” comes to mind…
