One World Government

A trend to watch in 2020… the Pope pushes to control not just Europe… but also…

One World Government!

We need to understand how the Roman Catholic Church thinks. What many may not realise is that it teaches that to gain salvation a person must be subject to the Roman Pontiff, as the following article points out:

Unam Sanctam

November 18th, 1302 - “Unam Sanctam is one of the most frightening documents of history and the one most quoted as the primary document of the popes claiming their global power. It is an express trust deed. The last line reads: ‘Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff.’ It is not only the first trust deed in history but also the largest trust ever conceived, as it claims the whole planet and everything on it, conveyed in trust.” ( 12160.info)

It claims to be the oldest institution on earth…

“The oldest institution on earth, the Roman Catholic Church, sustains a far-flung flock whose one billion-plus adherents comprise nearly one-sixth of the world’s population and half of all Christians. The tectonic shift of the world’s Catholic population to the ‘global south’ has transformed the Church into a truly global institution. In 1910 two-thirds of Catholics were Europeans; now over two-thirds live in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

These facts, combined with the visibility and popularity of Pope Francis, ensure the impact of the Church in world politics.( routledgehandbooks.com)

San Francisco - Sunday, April 29th 1945

- a “Solemn Pontifical Mass,’’ staged by the Roman Catholic Church, witnessed by Mr Armstrong. He recorded:

April 29th 1945 - “The Catholic hierarchy was well aware that the United Nations conference was producing nothing but strife and bickering, and was destined from its inception to end in total failure. Yet world leaders were pronouncing it the world’s last hope – with the only alternative annihilation of humanity!

Without divine help, he assured them, the United Nations structure is doomed to collapse. That divine aid was offered through the Roman Catholic Church.

Without the guidance, supervision, authority of the Catholic Church, he told these men, they were laboring in vain.

There could be only one appraisal of his sermon – it was a masterpiece!

Then to the civil governments – meaning those world statesmen high in authority in many nations seated before him – the Catholic Church says:

You must understand your place in the divine scheme of things! God is first.’ Do you grasp what he meant by that? The Catholic position is that God speaks and rules on earth though the Papacy and the Roman Catholic Church! Whatever the pope binds on earth is bound in heaven. Whatever he looses is also approved in heaven. His title is ‘Vicar of Christ,’ which means actually, ‘Ruling in place of Christ.’

In effect, then, he is Christ on earth. The Catholic position is that the pope is, therefore, supposed to be the King of kings, and the Lord of lords, by divine authority. He is supposed to be in authority over all kings and civil governments.

Bear carefully in mind this interpretation whenever God is placed over nations. The Catholic meaning is that their church must be placed, as God, and in place of God, over the nations. It has been enunciated by encyclicals of many popes. It was practised in fact for 1260 years through the dark ages! They openly admit they seek to put it in practice again!

Unfortunately, he said, the Roman Church is not free, now, to rule and check aggressions of war-like nations – but he said they were ‘ hoping and praying for it.’ And, since the Church is not free to sit in authority over nations – since through them the Lord is not building this United Nations structure for world peace, his conclusions were plain indeed: The United Nations organization will fail. It is doomed before it starts!( The Plain Truth, December 1948)

Former Israeli President Proposes Pope To Head ‘UN For Religions’

5th May 2015 - “Can you imagine any way to bring a tumultuous world under a one world religion? This is a good head start. A few months back, former president Shimon Peres met with the Pope at the Vatican and proposed that the Pope head up a UN for religions …the main topic of conversation was Peres’s idea to create a UN-like organization he called ‘the United Religions.’

Peres said the Argentina-born pontiff was the only world figure respected enough to bring an end to the wars raging in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world.( thedailysheeple.com)

The United Nations – Model For Religion?

25th September 2015 - “Despite its many weaknesses, the UN has been successful in one of its main pursuits: linking the countries of the world in a way that promotes peace. If such an alliance can be used to unite independent states, could a similar model work for world religions?( bigthink.com)

UN: The Pope… A “Messenger For Hope And Humanity.”

December 20th 2019 - “Pope Francis reiterated his belief Friday that a multilateral and globalist approach to geopolitics is the key to world peace.

‘Trust in dialogue between people and between nations, in multilateralism, in the role of international organizations, in diplomacy as an instrument for comprehension and understanding, is indispensable for building a peaceful world,’ the pontiff said in a video-message recorded in the company of António Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations.

The back-to-back messages underscored the deep agreement between the two leaders…

The Pope calls for a global response to a global problem, because everything is connected…” ( breitbart.com)

For his part, Mr Guterres had nothing but praise for the pope, saying that he exemplified the spirit of the United Nations and calling him a ‘messenger for hope and humanity.’

Your clear moral voice shines through,’ he told the pontiff, ‘whether you are speaking out on the plight of the most vulnerable, including refugees and migrants, confronting poverty and inequalities, appealing for disarmament, building bridges between communities, and of course highlighting the climate emergency through your historic encyclical Laudato Si.’

These messages coincide with the core values of the United Nations charter, namely to affirm the dignity and worth of the human person,’ he said.” ( breitbart.com)

2019 - Year Of Tolerance

“The 2019 Year of Tolerance proclaimed in the United Arab Emirates in December 2018 goes global as world leaders converge on New York City for the opening of the 74th Session of the UN General Assembly. In February 2019… Pope Francis travelled to Abu Dhabi after receiving an invitation from His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi. It was there that on 4 February the Pope and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, His Eminence Dr Ahmed el-Tayeb, signed a historic Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together.

Immediately, the newly signed document took on flesh. Just one day later on 5 February, Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince announced the construction of the Abrahamic Family House on Saadiyat Island. The complex will eventually house a Christian church, a mosque and a synagogue as well as an educational centre .” ( vaticannews.va)

This is not a new idea

In The Worldwide News – February 9, 1981, Mr Armstrong wrote:

“Very recently I returned from personal conferences with Prime Minister Menachem Begin in Jerusalem, and President Anwar el-Sadat in Cairo. Could it be possible these two Middle East leaders have started something with President Carter at the Camp David conferences that finally show the world the way to cause peace?

And not only Middle East peace, but world peace?

The Egyptian president gave me details of his proposed $70 million World Peace Center to be erected at the base of Mount Sinai, symbolic of peace between nations and between religions. Religious antagonisms have caused many wars through world history. His new peace center will consist of a walled-in complex including a mosque, a synagogue and a church, emblematic of peace between the three major religions predominant in the three nations involved in the Camp David talks.” ( Worldwide News – February 9, 1981)

President Anwar el-Sadat was assassinated by Muslim fundamentalist army officers on 6th October 1981.

A Date To Watch: 14th May 2020

“In a renewed and enthusiastic endorsement of globalism, Pope Francis has announced he is hosting an initiative for a ‘Global Pact’ to create a ‘new humanism.’ The global event, set to take place at the Vatican on May 14, 2020, is themed Reinventing the Global Educational Alliance.

According to a Vatican statement issued on Thursday, September 12, the Pope is inviting representatives of the main religions, international organizations and various humanitarian institutions, as well as key figures from the world of politics, economics and academia, and prominent athletes, scientists and sociologists to sign a ‘Global Pact on Education’ so as to ‘hand on to younger generations a united and fraternal common home.’

‘A global educational pact is needed to educate us in universal solidarity and a new humanism,’ Francis said.” ( lifesitenews.com)

Note the trend!

The Pope is inviting representatives of the main religions, international organizations and various humanitarian institutions, as well as key figures from the world of politics, economics and academia, and prominent athletes, scientists and sociologists ”, to be given the solution to the world’s great problems.

This is a trend to watch - the Pope offering to " solve world problems".

When Europe gets into great difficulties, they too will seek leadership from the Vatican!

The message is unchanged from that given in San Francisco in 1945:

“Without divine help …the United Nations structure is doomed to collapse. That divine aid was offered through the Roman Catholic Church.

Without the guidance, supervision, authority of the Catholic Church, he told these men, they were laboring in vain.( The Plain Truth, December 1948)

The Ultimate Unifying Force Would Be Religious

Back in 1968, an article in the Plain Truth magazine warned:

“The 17th chapter of Revelation plainly describes a spiritual-political union of TEN KINGS, ten military/political leaders, and a great spiritual leader. For decades, we have been proclaiming the eventual creation of some form of united Europe – showing the many difficulties to be resolved, the ancient nationalistic antagonisms, the memories of Germany’s neighbors of World War II, and the various religious barriers.

We have proclaimed repeatedly that THE ULTIMATE UNIFYING FORCE WOULD BE RELIGIOUS. We have shown how the prophecies of your Bible proclaim a great universal religious fervour will finally break down all remaining barriers to a full economic-political-military-religious union in Europe!” ( The Plain Truth, August 1968)

Vatican Response To A Divided Europe

The view from the Vatican is that Europe is now “weak and internally divided”, and that this situation “could soon rekindle tensions and conflicts.” We are watching for a push towards a Europe being “united by the common spiritual bond of universal Catholicism”.

We would be wise to stay alert!

The Catholic Church takes to itself the responsibility to keep Europe united!

The “ Historic Responsibility” Of The Roman Catholic Church

“As new fractures emerge at the seams of the European Union, the pope and his bishops seem keenly aware of the current battle for the soul of Europe, which, in light of populist gains, risks creating a new ideological iron curtain. ‘There could be a new division between Eastern and Western Europe, this time without military or cement walls, but with a wall we created with our votes, through the democratic process,’ said Liviu - Petru Zăpîrţan, Romanian Ambassador to the Holy See…

‘There are those who want a divided Europe, fragmented, litigious. Instead, a strong Europe is necessary in the international scene,’ said Jesuit Archbishop Jean-Claude Hollerich of Luxembourg… ‘ A weak and internally divided Europe could soon rekindle tensions and conflicts,’ Hollerich said, ‘and we have a historic responsibility to avert this grave danger’.( cruxnow.com)

Pope: “We must not lose this Heritage”

“In his interview, the pope also seemed to embrace popular notions that Europe and the European Union (EU) are virtually the same thing, so that to weaken the EU is to weaken Europe.

Europe cannot and must not break apart. It is a historical, cultural as well as a geographical unity,’ Francis said. ‘The dream of the Founding Fathers had substance because it was an implementation of this unity. Now, we must not lose this heritage’.” ( breitbart.com)

Note the Pope’s comment: “…we must not lose this HERITAGE.”

The message has not changed. “Return to your roots… experience again those authentic values that made your history glorious…” And now… “the thinking must be ‘Europe first, then each one of us,’” and finally, “we must not lose this heritage”!

We understand from prophecy that there will shortly be another great Inquisition – the Bible refers to it as the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:21) – when once again many will be killed for going against the teachings, the “authentic values”, of the Roman Catholic Church (Revelation 6:9-11).

At a time of impending crisis, the Roman Catholic Church is pointing Europe back to its “authentic values”!

We have been warned.

Seeds Of The Great Tribulation?

In spite of its push for diversity, tolerance and the push for solving the worlds problems, there is another side to the Roman Catholic Church!

Pope Francis specifically attacked fundamentalists… ‘Beware of the fundamentalist groups’, ‘Fundamentalism is a scourge…’

So what is a ‘Christian fundamentalist’?

Well, it is basically someone that believes the Bible is literally true, that believes that Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose again, and that believes that Jesus is coming back someday. In other words, the Pope considers millions upon millions of American Christians to be a plague that is infecting our planet…

And the [transcript] concludes with an appeal for ‘reconciliation and fraternity’ among the various religions of the world in order that ‘universal peace’ may be achieved… On the political front, globalism may have lost some momentum, but in religious circles it is steaming right along. The push for a one world religion is happening right out in the open, and very few people seem alarmed by it .” ( endoftheamericandream.com)

Evangelicals - An “Ecumenism Of Hate”

“Pope Francis has publicly endorsed an essay that appeared in 2017 criticizing relations between Evangelicals and Catholics in the United States as an ‘ecumenism of hate’.

September 5, 2019, during his recent trip to Mozambique in which the pope suggested that certain Evangelical Protestants in the United States ‘cannot really be defined as Christian. They preach Christ, yes, but their message is not Christian,’ the pope said.( breitbart.com)

The Real Goal:
Catholic Control Of A World Government

Pope Francis, like other popes before him, desires global government. This was made clear in his call for globalism on Thursday, during a speech before the members of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences within the Apostolic Palace. Francis demanded that a new ‘supranational, legal constituted body’ enforce the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and their climate change policies.

Rather than calling for the outright abolition of Nation States, the Pope insisted they all be subjected to external, global governing authorities. I am beginning to think that Pope Francis …is perhaps getting ready to make a real power move soon.

From his throne at the papal Apostolic Palace, King Francis spoke frankly of his desire to see global rule on a far-greater scale and scope than that of the United Nations… To boil it down into only 3 words, King Francis called for a ‘One World Government’.( 12160.info)

Sunday A Symbol

“On Sunday, our participation in the Eucharist has special importance. Sunday, like the Jewish Sabbath, is meant to be a day which heals our relationships with God, with ourselves, with others and with the world …The law of weekly rest forbade work on the seventh day, ‘so that your ox and your donkey may have rest, and the son of your maidservant, and the stranger, may be refreshed’ (Ex 23:12).

Chancellor Albert Smith for Cardinal of Baltimore Archdiocese, letter dated February 10, 1920:

If Protestants would follow the Bible, they should worship God on the Sabbath day [which] by God is Saturday. In keeping the Sunday, they are following a law of the Catholic Church .” ( amazingdiscoveries.org)

Rest opens our eyes to the larger picture and gives us renewed sensitivity to the rights of others. And so the day of rest, centred on the Eucharist, sheds its light on the whole week, and motivates us to greater concern for nature and the poor.” ( vatican.va)

The implication here is that we need to have a law mandating rest on Sunday, so it appears that his agenda on climate change includes giving Sunday rest and worship - mandated by law - to improve the environment.

Sunday: The Mark Of The Beast!

( Who Is the BEAST?)

“In about AD 365 the Catholic Council of Laodicea wrote in one of its most famous canons: ‘Christians must not judaize by resting on the Sabbath, but must work on that day, rather, honouring the Lord’s Day. But if any shall be found to be judaizers, let them be anathema from Christ.’ This was a virtual sentence to torture and/or death. The false church did not herself put true believers to death, but caused them to be put to death (Rev. 13:15).” ( Mystery of the Ages - Chapter 6)

The Pope Wants World Control!

The Pope wants ALL nations to be subject to an external, global governing authority, that is, the United Nations. And the nations will finally unite, at least for a short time, to fight Christ at His return.

Right at the end of this age, this happens:

“For I will gather ALL NATIONS against Jerusalem to battle…” (Zechariah 14:2)

…and after that final battle – world peace,
under the Government of God!

“And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.(Zechariah 14:16)

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10)
