Pope Francis Says World War III Has Already Begun

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Is Francis the herald of the prophesied one world religion?

“And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” Revelation 17:6

REDIPUGLIA Italy – Pope Francis said on Saturday the spate of conflicts around the globe today were effectively a “piecemeal” Third World War, condemning the arms trade and “plotters of terrorism” sowing death and destruction.

“Humanity needs to weep and this is the time to weep,” Francis said in the homily of a Mass during a visit to Italy’s largest war memorial, a large, Fascist-era monument where more than 100,000 soldiers who died in World War One are buried.

In his homily, read at a somber service to thousands of people braving the rain and which included the hauntingly funereal sound of a solitary bugle, Francis condemned “plotters of terrorism” but did not elaborate.

The pope began his brief visit to northern Italy by first praying in a nearby, separate cemetery for some 15,000 soldiers from five nations of the Austro-Hungarian empire which were on the losing side of the Great War that broke out 100 years ago.

“War is madness,” he said in his homily before the massive, sloping granite memorial, made of 22 steps on the side of hill with three crosses at the top.

Even today, after the second failure of another world war, perhaps one can speak of a third war, one fought piecemeal, with crimes, massacres, destruction,” he said.

In the past few months, Francis has made repeated appeals for an end to conflicts in Ukraine, Iraq, Syria, Gaza and parts of Africa.

“War is irrational; its only plan is to bring destruction: it seeks to grow by destroying,” he said. “Greed, intolerance, the lust for power. These motives underlie the decision to go to war and they are too often justified by an ideology …,” he said.

Last month the pope, who has often condemned the concept of war in God’s name, said it would be legitimate for the international community to use force to stop “unjust aggression” by Islamic State militants who have killed or displaced thousands of people in Iraq and Syria, many of them Christians.

      Wrong! War is the greatest business; it moves business ahead. Of course there are the “side effects” – civilians, children, woman, elders die; infrastructures are destroyed. Then comes the “rescuers’ who get a pay for it; politicians get funded and reelected. People got scared and do whatever politicians blew on them. Wake up!

      • Stand Up

        You got that right. For thousands of years the militia that does the dirty work for the Roman Catholic Empire are known as the Jesuits, including the Knights of Malta.

        Has Pope Francis already declared himself the antichrist and Lucifer “The Father”

        • Kelly

          Uhhh, just how many men (popes, presidents etc.) get declared “the antichrist” each year?

          It’s good to be watchful, but perhaps we ought to all keep our public judgement of others down to a bare minimum. As I recall, we were told to “judge not, lest ye be judged.”

        • Stand Up

          Yes Kelly many men have accurately described the prophile of the Antichrist but only the bible accurately explains when the false prophet shall present himself based on bible prophecy.

          Up to this point the bible has been right, based on past and recent events leading up to the 7 year tribulation. At this point, the blatant act of corruption and cover up among the Jesuit Roman Catholic Church is quite obvious even to the average moron.

          Our Jesuit controlled government is under the command of the vatican, and has been the primary driving force for the Popes one world religion & government. Only time will tell if this will be the last and final Pope.


        • CWHJr

          The fact that he is the first Jesuit pope is a definite hint. Protestants call the jesuit general the black pope who rules the vatican through fear of assassination. So pope francais is a black and white pope. Kind of like a skunk. Something smells rotten in The Vatican city.

        • manufactured2012

          Well the Pope should know because he is sanctioning it and blessing the GLOBAL WAR on terrorism.

          Read the following report and it will help a person to understand how religion is being used by both the East and the West. The geo-religious war has arrived

      Quote from “The Fate of Nations”

      Humanity now faces great danger as it begins to encounter a world in decline—a world whose environments have been degraded, a world whose climate has been affected, a world whose life-sustaining resources are being depleted and ruined by human ignorance and human greed. It is for this reason that a New Message from God has been sent into the world.

      If you cannot see this or cannot accept this, then you do not understand humanity’s great predicament at this time. You do not understand the travail that is now upon the human family. And you will not see the great danger, the Greater Darkness that now lurks in the world, a darkness that is born of intervention from beyond and a darkness that is born of human ignorance, greed, competition, conflict and war.

      To you who would take up the sword in the name of religion or political advantage: You must realize that you are violating God’s will for humanity. And though the Creator will not punish you, you will within yourself step away from the Knowledge of God within yourself. You will cast yourself into darkness and confusion. And you will lead your peoples and your nation into conflict, desolation and ruin. For you are beyond the time in which one nation can simply profit from the decline of another, for the whole world is now at stake.

      But you are deceived. You are in error. You are violating God’s Will and Plan for humanity. Though God will not punish you directly, you will separate yourself from God’s Wisdom and God’s Will. You will enter into confusion and darkness, into grievance and ultimately into despair.

      Beware, the leaders of nations and the leaders of religion. Beware if you seek to hurt or conquer another nation for your own advantage or to express your grievance or your ancient animosities. Be aware that you are casting yourself into the darkness and into confusion and misery, and you will bring desolation, destitution and ruin upon your peoples as a result.

      And be aware, the average citizen, that you too have a responsibility to follow the wisdom and Knowledge that God has placed within you, to discover this wisdom and Knowledge and not to violate it because of anger or revenge, rage or greed. You too have a responsibility, for the outcome is not simply up to the leaders of the nations and the religions. It is ultimately up to every person.

      Be aware of the great danger for you individually, for your people, your nation and the world, for the great time of trial and tribulation is upon you. How humanity will respond, both its leaders and its citizens, will make all the difference in the outcome. The power of decision here is with you. God’s Will is clear—God is preparing humanity for its encounter with life in the Universe. This is clear and is presented in the New Message.

      As uncertainty, anxiety and competition increase in the world, you will need this guidance now more than ever before. For the institutions and the comforts that you have perhaps benefited from may not be there for you in the future. The assurances and the security that were provided for you, to whatever extent they were, may not be there for you in the future.

      This is your responsibility. This is the calling of your time. It is a time of Revelation, and the Revelation is upon you.

      Marshall Vian Summers

      • CWHJr

        Mr Somers has already missed God. He should read his bible and try believing it.

        • simpel

          I know Marshall Vian Summers is more closer to GOD than most people will ever realize.

          The Bible and the Koran have been altered by people and governments, by cultures and traditions and by the competition for power in the world. When You visit the church or the temple or the mosque and what is presented but an emphasis on upholding the ideology of religion, the institutions of religion [and] the demands of religion? This emphasis is out of context and out of relationship with the essential purpose of religion.

          The Creator of all life has initiated all of the world’s religions, but they too have been altered.

          That is why God has spoken again. God is moving humanity in a new direction. We are living in a time of the revelation and the revelation is now upon you.

    • Hans Vosgezang

      The Pope is crazy. The pope or all roam catholics doesn’t belief by faith in wat the Lord Jesus Christ has done, see tract:

      • Doccus

        It woulkd take hours to go through all the lies in that “tract” but please believe me, they ARE lies. Far too many “born again” Christians think it’s perfectly OK to lie in order to “Get one out” of the Catholic church, even though they haven’t actually researched the facts themselves.. Do you really think you will escape judgement for these kinds of things? We all will be judged, after all….

      • Puffin

        Ha, ha…. Doesn’t anyone here know that The ILLUMINATI founded Protestanism?!! I really believed the folks here have more knowlege on such matters.

      Is Francis the herald of the prophesied one world religion?

      “And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” Revelation 17:6


      Martin Luther discovered the Pope to be the Anti-Christ in Revelation – the Lady in Purple, Beast of the Sea, the Religious Leader who sits in the temple of over 1 Billion Catholics – the whole movement of the Reformist of the Reformation that swept Europe from the 1,500 A.D. were the Protestant (Protestors of the Catholic Church) that simulated the coming to America for religious freedom. Our Forefathers’ forefathers were the Reformists that went against King George and the Vatican, Holy See. The Counter – Reformation was the Futurist Belief presented by the Jesuit Priest to hide the Pope as the Anitchrist pushing the concept that the Antichrist would be in the future after the Rapture of the Church. Now, who is the Beast of the Land, 2 short horns, great orator, military leader and false prophet – 2 kingdoms from image in Daniel – feet of iron and mirey clay that will never mix – ten toes (ten world divisions) – the lady in purple riding the beast that later devours her – old revived Roman Empire – look around who borders the Mediterrainian Sea – EU & Islm – -

      • CWHJr

        You are verh close to the truth. Look at rev 18 where the beast destroys the whore. Remember in Dan the little horn. He comes out of one of the 4 generals kingdoms. So he is Muslim. Likely Turkey. This little horn devours 3 of the former 10 horns. If 3 nations vote in muslim leadership, like the US did with Obama, then they will be one with the little horn. At the end of the 42 month reign of the beast over Israel the little horn places his own 10 kings over the EU. Not the 10 unions, the European Union. Now being muslim the call for jehad will bring the destruction of the vatican.
        You are right the 2 horns are 2 nations, not the false prophet. They are 2 kingdoms. What 2 kingdoms have enough power to lend the EU and so rule the world? Understand that the European Union has only 10 full members, but 27 in all.
        The North American Union has 3 members but the US and Canada have more clout that Mexico and it is the US that developed the chip.
        Did you know we already have a 7 year covenant strengthened on Jan 1st 2014?

      ” Papa Nero, ” this can only end one way. With you in the bottomless pit, where you belong. Take your flock of dangerous and mindless followers with you, so the world might have a chance at peace.

    • mothman777

      What a hypocrite the Pope is, as most of the people he professes to speak on behalf of in those war-stricken countries are, according to the words of his own faith, intended to be burned alive, repeatedly in hell, for all eternity, with no hope whatsoever of that inconceivable agony ever ceasing.

      He would be more truthful if he stated that they were just getting a taste in war of what his evil God is going to do to them anyway for all eternity, rather than coming on like he means them well.

      How could he possibly actually sincerely mean them well if he believes they should all be burned alive for all eternity? He is just like a politician, and he is one really I suppose.

    • StavoV

      Bet all of nay sayers, will say the same thing, as some heretic infidel muslim, is about to lob off a/yours….a friends head. :twisted:

    • betru2yrfaith

      Your comment about the Pope being the Whore of Babylon smacks of idiocy and someone who is tragically uneducated to boot but most evangelicals are and I don’t mean to put you down but most of you were educated in the public school. You went to Jeff’s or Doug’s, whoever’s church down the street with their own misinterpretation of the Bible so walla! Need I say more? Here is a man trying to call for Peace because the powers that be are full of greed and addicted to power. He wants to defend the Christians in the Middle East, Oh but wait… their not Christians like American Christians. In other words their not evangelicals so why should they be defended. They have only lived there since the time of Christ and they even still speak Aramaic like Christ…oh but their not evangelicals who are the only real Christians in the world who are gonna get raptured out of here anyway before the Antichrist comes so what are ya worried about? Hey…have a nice day.

    • janetspillows

      Nobody wants war, but sometimes they drive you to it. ISIS started and we have to end it. We can’t let them keep growing like the cockroaches that they are.

    • Big EM

      The same Pope who calls war “madness” also calls for the international community to use force to stop “unjust aggression.” Well I guess you can have your cake and eat it too. It’s a great time for holiday…

      • CWHJr

        Sound familiar? Think “Crusades”

    • Anonymous

      I have to agree on the Pope’s take that war is madness! The madness comes from those who instigate war for profit by using the sons and daughters of Nations to spill their blood on foreign lands. These war mongering misfits are only interested in ruling the world. Greedy and power hungry anti-god miscreants who serve Lucifer. It matters not to them who wins or loses but as long as millions are killed and cities are destroyed they revel in the sacrifices made in the name of their master, Lucifer. The majority of humans have no understanding about who rules the earth.

      Big Russia, Small Russia, and White Russia will be together soon.
      It’s all been decided already.
      USA and Israel will attack Iran.
      Russia will attack Georgia and Turkey.
      China will attack Russia.
      Antichrist will be crowned in the Third Temple.
      He will take off his gloves to sign himself with the sign of the cross.
      People will see his big nails and so will the Patriarch who will be crowning him.
      This Patriarch will say that this is the antichrist.
      Antichrist will kill him.
      Jews will take note of the fact that this guy has big nails.
      Some of them will reject him based on this fact.
      God punishes when 3 things are legalized
      that is
      1)murder (death penalty, abortion, euthanasia, etc.)
      Actually, your own government sacrificed people to Satan on 911.
      Next sacrifice: Statue of Liberty and Manhattan Bridge.
      Poor New Yorkers.
      Explosion in the sea will flood New York.
      Later Los Angeles will be flooded.
      America will be flooded up to Alaska probably.
      So, say bye-bye to New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Moscow, Saint Petersburg, etc.
      According to Russian Orthodoxy, John (who wrote the Revelation) will also be alongside Enoch and Elijah to preach against the antichrist.
      John will teach Christians.
      Elijah will teach Jews.
      Enoch will teach the rest.
      Antichrist will kill Enoch and Elijah. This will be televised.
      I am not sure about John’s sharing or not sharing the fate of Enoch and Elijah.
      Antichrist will rule over the whole world except Orthodox Russia.
      There will be a Tsar in Russia to not allow this antichrist to rule in Russia.
      Now, if I added something that is not actually believed, forgive me.

    • neanderthal

      Well I am glad to hear that the Pope made the announcement.

    • freedom007

      Pope Francis, no matter if he be good or evil, does have the very best intelligence agents and political analysts.
      Furthermore, his statement, that WWIII has already begun “by piecemeal”, confirms what many Western people feel about the current geopolitical situation.
      Last Saturday I saw our TV News, stating that the Pope called us to mourn for the dead of War, he meant WW I in the past but also that piecemeal WW III now.
      And I really felt as if I were attending a burial.
      I had felt this way all that day thru.
      I thought this feeling came from the foggy weather but perhaps it meant more. I suppose I sensed what really was in the air that day. (I must admit, sometimes I do have precognitions. For example, during that afternoon when all people in the world waited for the new Pope to be elected, I watched T.V.; suddenly a thought flashed thru my mind: “I wish for the new Pope to call himself FRANCIS.” I never had thought about a new pope´s name before. What happened half an hour later? The new pope´s name really WAS FRANCIS!)

      Well, so far so good… the Pope named a collective feeling, and deemed it realistic. That is good, as it takes self-doubt away, and self-doubt is antagonistic to all kinds of self-empowerment, it chokes one´s own initiative.

      But he did not tell Christianity all that he should have told. He had us remain in the realm of passivity, of helpless mourning, of saying prayers but not doing, and being able to do, much else. This mirrors his own feeliings I think … which gives me a feeling of pity for the Pope, the Man in the Golden Cage.

      But it does not help us to share his feeling of passive mourning. It rather stops us from helping ourselves.

      For, every Christian knows that the Pope could also have said,
      as John the Baptist would have said in the same situation, and GANDHI of course too:

      “Repent or die! War is murder! Throw off all that connects you to war, do not take any kind of advantage from war, do not work for the companies involved in war, do not join any army, navy or other military group, do not watch war propaganda or militaristic movies; and refrain from paying taxes to warmongerers – instead, use your surplus money to give rescue and medical help to victims of war no matter on which side they´ve been fighting.”

      And of course the good obedient Catholic sheeple will think “if the Pope did not call us to do the “Gandhi game”, that means we should not do the “Gandhi game” but remain passive and only “offer our suffering to the Lord”"!

      Pope Francis is MISSING his mission, from the view of Jesus and His Gospel,
      for he does NOT dare call Christianity
      to leave Babylon and its wars behind and start a global Gandhi-like Resistance movement –
      which they could do, and by which they could WIN.
      there are more than one BILLION of baptised people on Earth, half of them Catholic, and many of the latter have lots of money and influence.
      if Christians, or at least Catholics, should turn against WW III together, who will be able to defeat them?
      But Catholics, and many other Christians, are socialised to be passively obedient, to wait for a call from their Master before they get into action… and as long as the Pope does not say anything else, they will keep waiting, and counting Rosaries, and “offering their sufferings”, and projecting hope to Heaven only, till it is too late.

      This Pope calls himself Francis. If he remains a coward, a toothless lion, I will call him PONTIUS PILATUS instead.
