A man greater than Jesus is on Earth, beware of the false gospel!


A man greater than Jesus is on Earth 

1Co 8:5  For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)

called

G3004
legō
A primary verb; properly to “lay” forth, that is, (figuratively) relate (in words [usually of systematic or set discourse; whereas G2036 and G5346 generally refer to an individual expression or speech respectively; while G4483 is properly to break silence merely, and G2980 means an extended or random harangue]); by implication to mean: - ask, bid, boast, call, describe, give out, name, put forth, say (-ing, on), shew, speak, tell, utter.
G5346
phēmi

Properly the same as the base of G5457 and G5316; to show or make known one’s thoughts, that is, speak or say: - affirm, say. Compare G3004.

Of uncertain affinity; a deity, especially (with G3588) the supreme Divinity; figuratively a magistrate; by Hebraism very: - X exceeding, God, god [-ly, -ward].

1 Corinthians 8:5 
That are called gods - Gods so called. The pagans everywhere worshipped multitudes, and gave to them the name of gods.
Whether in heaven - Residing in heaven, as a part of the gods were supposed to do. Perhaps, there may be allusion here to the sun, moon, and stars; but I rather suppose that reference is made to the celestial deities, or to those who were supposed to reside in heaven, though they were supposed occasionally to visit the earth, as Jupiter, Juno, Mercury, etc.
Or in earth - Upon the earth; or that reigned particularly ever the earth, or sea, as Ceres, Neptune, etc. The ancient pagans worshipped some gods that were supposed to dwell in heaven; others that were supposed to reside on earth; and others that presided over the inferior regions, as Pluto, etc.
As there be gods many - ὥσπερ  hōsper, etc. As there are, in fact, many which are so called or regarded. It is a fact that the pagans worship many whom they esteem to be gods, or whom they regard as such. This cannot be an admission of Paul that they were truly gods, and ought to he worshipped; but it is a declaration that they esteemed them to be such, or that a large number of imaginary beings were thus adored. The emphasis should be placed on the word “many;” and the design of the parenthesis is, to show that the number of these that were worshipped was not a few, but was immense; and that they were in fact worshipped as gods, and allowed to have the influence over their minds and lives which they would have if they were real; that is, that the effect of this popular belief was to produce just as much fear, alarm, superstition, and corruption, as though these imaginary gods had a real existence. So that though the more intelligent of the pagan put no confidence in them, yet the effect on the great mass was the same as if they had had a real existence, and exerted over them a real control.
And lords many - (κύριοι πολλοὶ  kurioi polloi). Those who had a “rule” over them; to whom they submitted themselves; and whose laws they obeyed. This name “lord” was often given to their idol gods. Thus, among the nations of Canaan their idols was called בּצל  Ba‛al, (“Baal, or lord”), the tutelary god of the Phoenicians and Syrians; Jdg_8:33; Jdg_9:4, Jdg_9:46. It is used here with reference to the IdoLS, and means that the laws which they were supposed to give in regard to their worship had control over the minds of their worshippers.

Gill
1 Corinthians 8:5  For though there be that are called gods,.... That are so by name, though not by nature; who are called so in Scripture, as angels and magistrates, or by men, who give them such names, and account them so:

whether in heaven; as the sun, moon, and stars:

or in earth; as men who formerly lived on earth; or various creatures on earth, who have been accounted deities; or stocks and stones graven by man's device:

as there be gods many: almost without number, as were among the Egyptians, Grecians, Romans, and others; yea, even among the Jews, who falling into idolatry, their gods were according to the number of their cities, Jer_2:28

and lords many; referring to the Baalim, or the several idols that went by the name of Baal, or lord, as Baal Peor, Num_25:3 Baal Zephon, Exo_14:2 Baal Zebub, 2Ki_1:2 Baal Berith, Jdg_8:33.

JFB

1 Corinthians 8:5 
“For even supposing there are (exist) gods so called (2Th_2:4), whether in heaven (as the sun, moon, and stars) or in earth (as deified kings, beasts, etc.), as there be (a recognized fact, Deu_10:17; Psa_135:5; Psa_136:2) gods many and lords many.” Angels and men in authority are termed gods in Scripture, as exercising a divinely delegated power under God (compare Exo_22:9, with Exo_22:28; Psa_82:1, Psa_82:6; Joh_10:34, Joh_10:35).

1 Corinthians 8:5

2Th 2:1  Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2Th 2:2  That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
2Th 2:3  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2Th 2:4  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
2Th 2:5  Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2Th 2:6  And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2Th 2:7  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
2Th 2:8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
2Th 2:9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2Th 2:10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2Th 2:11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2Th 2:12  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

1 Corinthians 8:5 
Gods - lords
Superhuman beings to whom these titles are given, as Eph_6:12; 2Co_4:4; Joh_12:31; Joh_14:30.

For though there be (kai gar eiper eisi).

Literally, ‘For even if indeed there are’ (a concessive clause, condition of the first class, assumed to be true for argument’s sake).
Called gods (legomenoi theoi).

So-called gods, reputed gods. 

reputed gods - seeming, ostensible, deceptive, misleading, illusory, deceiving, to be regarded with suspicion, not to be trusted, unreliable, erratic, changeable, variable, untrustworthy, undependable, fly-by-night, fallacious, flimsy, untrue, inaccurate, falsified, anecdotal, erroneous, doubtful, unrepresentative,

Paul denied really the existence of these so-called gods and held that those who worshipped idols (non-entities) in reality worshipped demons or evil spirits, agents of Satan

(1 Cor. 10:19-21). (RWP)


1Co 8:6  But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. 



Quotes from the antichristian catholic church, making the priest greater than God.


"The Dignity of the Priest Surpasses all other Created Dignities."
 
"The kings of the earth glory in honoring priests: bend their knee before the priest of God; they kiss his hands, and with bowed down head receive his benediction."



"Holy Virgin,excuse me, for I speak not against thee: the Lord has raised the priesthood above thee.



The saint assigns the reason of the superiority of the priesthood over Mary; she conceived Jesus Christ only once; but by consecrating the Eucharist, the priest, as it were, conceives him as often as he wishes, so that if the person of the Redeemer had not as yet been in the world, the priest, by pronouncing the words of consecration, would produce this great person of a Man-God.; O wonder ful dignity of the priests; cries out St. Augustine;; in their hands, as in the womb of the Blessed Virgin, the Son of God becomes- incarnate. : Hence priests are called the parents of Jesus Christ: such is the title that St. Bernard gives them, for they are the active cause by which he is made to exist really in the consecrated Host.



Thus the priest may, in a certain manner, be called the creator of his Creator, since by saying the words of consecration, he creates, as it were, Jesus in the sacrament, by giving him a sacramental existence, and produces him as a victim to be offered to the eternal Father.

As in creating the world it was sufficient for God to have said, Let it be made, and it was created He spoke, and they were made? so it is sufficient for the priest to say,



Hoc est corpus meum and behold the bread is

no longer bread, but the body of Jesus Christ.



The power of the priest; says St. Bernardine of Sienna,; is the power of the divine person; for the transubstantiation of the bread requires as much power as the creation of the world."

But our wonder should be far greater when we find that in obedience to
the words of his priests Hoc EST CORPUS MEUM God himself descends on the altar, that he comes wherever they call him, and as often as they call him, and places himself in their hands, even though they should be his enemies

Uttalanden av Stanley Sjöberg



"I Hemmets Vän skriver Stanley: ”Kritiken har hårdnat ju närmare vi kommer den 3 maj. Det finns de som tror att de ska hindra vittnesbördet om Jesus från en sådan samverkan genom att just nu uppmärksamma de historiska kyrkornas fel och brister. En nyprotestantisk iver kan dock inte släcka den eld som den helige Ande tänt bland mer än 120 miljoner andefyllda katoliker.”

Stanley Sjöberg har synpunkter på att det förs fram
kritik mot katolska kyrkans felaktigheter just nu.


"Jag är gripen av att ortodoxa och katolska kyrkoledare, tillsammans med Svenska kyrkans och frikyrkosamfundens ledare, ska stå tillsammans med trosrörelsens ledare Ulf Ekman och hans medarbetare. "

- ochännu ett underligt uttalande av Stanley Sjöberg i Hemmets Vän.

"Christofer Columbus, en karismatisk kristen man med historisk betydelse är en förebild i att stödja det judiska folkets kamp för sina rättigheter. Han är ett exempel på hur Gud leder och förser sitt folk när stödet från ett område sviktar och ännu ej upptäckta resurser ger styrka åt löftets förverkligande." ???

Vår fiende är ateismen - inte de historiska kyrkorna

http://www.hemmetsvan.se/nyhetstexter.jsp?oid=2078&coid=3

Varnar för islams inflytande
 
Vi gör väl i att lyssna till våra syrisk-ortodoxa trossyskon när de varnar oss för islams inflytande över tänkandet i Europa. Det är också en sådan historisk kyrka som känner igen falskheten i den teologi som introduceras i Europa och som genom att kompromissa vill söka enhet med islams religion.

 
Det finns frikyrkokristna och karismatiska ledare som ensidigt vänder sin kritik mot den katolska och ortodoxa kyrkans tro och närvaro i vårt land. Jag hävdar, att även om vi alltid ska våga öppenhet i tänkandet, är en sådan inskränkthet ett farligt historiskt misstag. Vår fiende är ateismen och vårt problem är den humanistiska teologin. Det är därför vi ger appellen om att i tusental samlas i Stockholm den 2 maj till en mäktig Jesusmanifestation och visa vårt land att vi är många som håller fast vid övertygelsen om att Jesus är gudomlig. Jesus är mänsklighetens Frälsare. 
När Süleyman Wannes beskriver sin kyrkas tro och i detalj berättar om hur kristen tro tillämpas bland syrianerna, då väcker det respekt och tacksamhet. Varje gudstjänst förmedlar budskapet med symboler som talar till alla mänskliga sinnen och som samtidigt syftar till att människan ska öppna sitt inre för den helige Andes närvaro. Vi som formats av frikyrkorörelsen kan uppleva det främmande med de liturgiska dräkterna och ceremonier med rökelse och korstecken, men det är viktigt att känna till hur gudstjänsten förmedlar textläsning från olika delar av Nya testamentet och hur man förkunnar Jesu liv, död och uppståndelse. 
Süleyman Wannes skriver om att när den sjuke blir smord med olja är det inte som en förberedelse inför döden, utan i samband med bön för att den sjuke ska bli frisk från både andlig och fysisk svaghet.

 Generositet

Många har oroats över den allkristna bredden. Det är ett uttryck för stor generositet och djärv Kristuskärlek när ortodoxa kyrkoledare och den romerska katolska kyrkans ledning accepterar att vara tillsammans med fristående kristna grupper. Vi är medvetna om att det förekommit tanklösa och kränkande exempel på vad som blivit sagt av allt för ivriga ”karismatiker” som ensidigt sökt att framhäva sin egen stil i motsats till de historiska kyrkornas gudstjänstformer. 

Vi möter tyvärr också en ”protestantisk” envishet som vägrar bejaka annat än den egna väckelserörelsens exklusiva uttryck av spontanitet och hängivenhet. 

Jesusmanifestationens stora syfte är att bekänna vår enhet i tron på Jesus och ödmjukt bekräfta vår tacksamhet för alla som i en tid som denna mer noggrant än vi själva fördjupat teologin och tillbedjan inför Jesus som evighetens Herre och mänsklighetens Frälsare. 

Den Romerska katolska kyrkans påve Benedikt XVI har i sin bok om Jesus från Nasaret beskrivit en kristologi som höjer sig över allt annat i västerlandets teologiska arbete genom att försvara och befästa tron på vem Jesus verkligen är. De ortodoxa kyrkornas teologer och andliga ledare är föredömen i att inte tillåta Jesus att bli nedvärderad och ens ifrågasatt på det sätt som sker inom den västerländska akademiskt anpassade teologin. De som finns i Sverige inom dessa kyrkor har fortfarande blodfläckar från sin martyrhistoria ända in i 2000-talets globala verklighet. 
Det är en kärlekens förpliktelse att som Jesustroende kristen manifestera samhörighet och tillhörighet med dessa historiska kyrkor, även om vi också själva har en unik kallelse och personlig integritet att vårda och bevara. 

Jag är gripen av att ortodoxa och katolska kyrkoledare, tillsammans med 

Svenska kyrkans och frikyrkosamfundens ledare, ska stå tillsammans med 

trosrörelsens ledare Ulf Ekman och hans medarbetare.

Ett besök i Vatikanen jag sent ska glömma

 http://www.hemmetsvan.se/nyhetstexter.jsp?oid=29&coid=3


En hel värld har följt det som hänt i samband med att påven Johannes Paulus II avslutade sitt livsverk och begravdes under högtidliga former i Sankt Peterskyrkan i Rom. Vi har alla våra minnesbilder och relationen till den katolska kyrkan är inte enkel.

När Johannes Paulus II var präst i Krakow under 1970-talet vet jag att han var en vän till baptisterna och pingstvännerna och vågade visa omsorg, medan andra såg frikyrkorörelserna som ett hot. En av hans medarbetare besökte bland annat Citykyrkan i Stockholm där han upplevde den helige Ande på ett märkbart sätt. Den mannen predikade omvändelse och förde fram för allt ett stort antal studenter till livsförvandling och ett dop i den helige Ande.

En välsignad bordsbön

Några år efter att Johannes Paulus II hade installerats som påve i Rom hade jag tillfälle att besöka Vatikanen. Jag träffade aldrig påven personligen, även om min fru Kerstin och jag var med på en audience tillsammans med ett stort antal andra besökare. Men en av hans medarbetare i kurian tog hand om oss och vi inbjöds till en samtalslunch som jag sent ska glömma. När vi skulle nedkalla Guds välsignelse över måltiden fick vi vara med om en sådan tydlig Guds Andes närvaro att det blev bön, tillbedjan och lovsång ganska länge. Maten kallnade men atmosfären berörde oss i djupet.

Samma kväll blev vi inbjudna till en aftongudstjänst intill Vatikanen. Framme vid altaret var det förbön och man förklarade för mig att många upplevde ett "andligt helande". Människor som hade varit under inflytande av demoniska makter, blev fria. Alkoholskadade blev friska. Sökare fann en levande gemenskap med Kristus. När mässan skulle firas, det vi kallar nattvarden, kom prästen ner till mig och omfamnade mig, kysste mig på kinden och sa medan tårarna flödade; "You understand". Han menade att jag förstod att vi som inte tillhör den katolska kyrkans gemenskap, vi får inte ta emot nattvarden tillsammans med dem.

Ungefär vid den tiden var jag på besök i ett ökenområde i Pakistan som kallas Sind och där vi samlades i staden Hyderabad. Jag var inbjuden tillsammans med den anglikanske prästen Michael Harper och vi skulle undervisa hundratals nyomvända kristna om hur man tar emot den helige Ande. En väckelse hade gått fram bland speciellt hinduer som tagit emot Jesus till frälsning.

Sent en kväll kom en katolsk präst fram till mig efter att gudstjänsten var slut. Han ville att vi skulle be tillsammans. Vi gick in i en liten katolsk kyrkolokal med jordgolv och ett enkelt altare med sitt krucifix. Prästen var ung, han var barfota, med långt hår och skägg, mager och innerligt intensiv. Han arbetade ibland de allra fattigaste och längtade efter en andlig utrustning för sitt missionsarbete.

Vi böjde våra knän framme vid altaret och efter en stund av stillhet kom den helige Andes närvaro med en obeskrivlig atmosfär av renhet, helighet och kärlek. Vi överraskades av att börja sjunga en lovsång där vi hade en gemensam melodi och ett gemensamt språk. Ut ur altaret trädde en gestalt fram till oss och sträckte sina händer över oss för att ge oss sin välsignelse. Vi såg honom båda två och visste vem det var. Jesus var mitt ibland genom den helige Andes förmedlande närvaro.

Det finns en del kristna vänner som den senaste tiden blivit upprörda över att vi som tillhör väckelserörelserna, samtidigt kan ha gemenskap med katolska kristna. Jag har den senaste tiden fått brev och e-mail med utrop att jag måste vakna. En orsak är att jag nyligen besökte den katolska kyrkan vid Kungsträdgården i Stockholm och talade om innebörden av Herrens Heliga Måltid.

Även jag har upplevelser av katoliker som varit skrämmande. Under 1950-talet var konflikten så dramatisk att våra vänner i olika länder blev förföljda. Jag är också starkt medveten om teologiska skillnader och jag är inte överens med katolsk teologi och absolut inte med den ämbetssyn som format påvens makt.

Bevara vår identitet

När en ny påve väljs och den katolska kyrkans inflytande får allt större betydelse i världen, då är det viktigt att ha ögonen öppna och inte låta sig manipuleras. Jag är övertygad om att det som finns av andligt liv inom de historiska kyrkorna har givits som en andlig förnyelse tack vare väckelserörelserna under 1900-talet. Därför har vi en större uppgift än någonsin och ett ansvar att bevara vår identitet som troendeförsamlingar med Bibeln i centrum för vårt tänkande och allt vi gör.
Jag tvekar inte att berätta om ett sammanträffande jag hade med professor Harald Risenfeldt. Det var han som gav oss den översättningen av Nya testamentet 1981. I samband med den tiden lämnade han Svenska Kyrkan och den lutherska gemenskapen i Europa därför att han upplevde hur teologer och kyrkoledare allt mer övergav tron på Jesus som Gudomlig. Han berättade med djup gripenhet hur han också inom den katolska kyrkan hade mött kardinaler och högt uppsatta teologer som inte längre stod fast i sin tro på inkarnationen och Jesu Kristi Gudom. Jag minns att Harald Risenfeldt lyfte sitt finger och varnade för den kommande utvecklingen.
Låt oss be att nästa påve är en troende man. ???

Stanley Sjöberg

 http://www.hemmetsvan.se/nyhetstexter.jsp?oid=1463&coid=3

 Den helige Ande har på ett tydligt sätt visat oss en strategi ... ???

Därför står vi tillsammans, ortodoxa och katolska, lutherska och frikyrklighetens folk, tillsammans med nysvenska kristna församlingar i Storstockholm. 
Kritiken har hårdnat ju närmare vi kommer den 3 maj. Det finns de som tror att de ska hindra vittnesbördet om Jesus från en sådan samverkan genom att just nu uppmärksamma de historiska kyrkornas fel och brister. En nyprotestantisk iver kan dock inte släcka den eld som den helige Ande tänt bland mer än 120 miljoner andefyllda katoliker. 

Det är dessutom ett tanklöst förakt att år 2008 ifrågasätta den ortodoxa kyrkogemenskapens rätt att få tillhöra Jesus i en tid när det just bland dem är många som dör som martyrer inför valet att förneka Jesus och överleva eller tro på Jesus och dö genom halshuggning eller ett gevärsskott.
Det gemensamma vittnesbördet om Jesus innebär inte att vi blir katoliker eller ortodoxa, anglikaner eller lutheraner, om vi i nuläget tillhör Trosrörelsen, Pingströrelsen eller Evangeliska Frikyrkan etc. 
 
Från olika delar av Sverige kommer bussar och tåg med frimodiga bekännelsemedvetna kristna. Vi tror att det som nu ska ske kan bli ett nytt ”Karmel”, en ny ”pingstdag”, en vändpunkt för kristendomens utveckling i vårt land. Vi ber om förbön av alla som läser det här, att vädret ska bli gynnsamt, att motdemonstrationer och angrepp ska hållas borta och att Jesus ska bli uppmärksammad, ärad och respekterad av vårt folk på nytt.

kommentar av Harry Forsgren

Håller med Dig Sköld i vad Du skriver. Det är så beklämmande vad som idag sker på den andliga arenan, där allsköns villfarelse legaliseras. Inte minst nu genom denna "Jesusmanifestation". 

Inte är det en manifestation av Jesus att göra det tillsammans med villolära och villolärare! Det är en manifestation, som förbereder människors sinnen och hjärtan för att hälsa antikrist välkommen som Kristus. 

Och det är för tragiskt att Stanley, Hedin, Ekman, Halldorf, Arborelius och de kristna ledarna skapar dimma i de kristnas ögon genomn att mena att detta är en "Jesus manifestation". Medan det egentligen är en manifestation av en "annan Jesus", tillsammans med villfarelse och villolärare! Det är bara så beklämmande att Stanley blivit så vilsen, så att han är beredd att bejaka förförelsen både i trosförkunnelelsen och katolicismen!

min kommentar i Hemmets vän

Väckelse på vilken grund?
 
 Ja vi väntar en väckelse från Guds eget Ord, alltför länge har vi fått "stå ut med" en ljum, sammanblandad, mixad, tillsatt, mängd, kristendoms-typ i detta Sverige, Ekumeniken, karismatiker med charm, tjuskraft, lockelse, magnetism, och självgjorda förkunnare, propagandister, som fört människor alltmer vilse in i en obekant, underlig Bibelsyn. 
 
Själv minns jag det år då jag blev frälst 1971 hur Andens eld tog tag om mångas liv, de blev livsförvandlade av Den Helige Ande och Guds Ord blev dyrbart och levande, verksamt för dem, nu har åren gått och många har prövats på olika sätt, en del har gått in i ”kyrkofromhet” Övergått till att vara irr-religiösa trälar, andra har fallit av, och Gud vare lov en del är fortfarande brinnande, Guds nåds fostran har gjort dem till dugliga tjänare! 
 
Men den brinnande skaran synes liten! 

Nu är det kains-religionen, mängdläran som gäller, penningdyrkan, prosperity, lockelser och tjusningar av alla upptänkliga slag och arter! Men man har för länge sedan förlorat styrrodret man är på väg från värre till värst, en kulminering och avfallstendens tills den når sin höjdpunkt, precis såsom det gick för de religiösa på Jesu tid, domen kom obönhörligt allt föll i ruiner, trots varningar genom profeterna och Jesu egna Ord. 
 
Man vill nämligen inte höra! De stoppade till öronen. De var ju självutnämnda ”herdar” och snickarens Son – vem trodde han sig vara? 
 
Väckelsen gick utanför lägret, Jesus frågade inte om lov, så även i den Laodiceanska tidsåldern, Jesus står utanför lägret och kallar dem ut därifrån, än mer i Upp 18 Och jag hörde en annan röst från himmelen säga: "Dragen ut ifrån henne, I mitt folk, så att I icke gören eder delaktiga i hennes synder och fån eder del av hennes plågor. Alla varningar från apostlarna går i samma spår. Oupphörligt undervisade och lärde man Guds väg, varnade för sammanblandnig och avfall av olika slag. De var otröttliga och gav inte upp, de kämpade trons goda kamp och sträckte sig fram mot målet, efter stadgad ordning. 
 
Nu står domen över Sverige, kanske några skall vakna upp innan dörren blir tillsluten och ingen återvändo blir möjlig! Kanhända en ny knäväckelse kan rädda de som räddas skall tills Jesus återhämtar Sin Brudeskara! 
Kom Herre Jesus Kom snart!

Massaprocessen 

Citat S. Sjöberg: 

Jesusmanifestationen 2010 

”Ingen av oss ges tillåtelse att tala om olika böneämnen i det här mötet.” 

Citat Sven Nilsson: 

”Jag tror att den pågående enhetsrörelsen har sina transportsträckor, där vi inte riktigt vet vart vi är på väg.” 
”Både de historiska kyrkorna och frikyrkorörelsen står inför stora utmaningar.” 
”Frikyrkosamfunden och fria församlingsrörelser behöver erkänna de historiska kyrkornas betydelse som traditionsbärare” 

– Slut citat. 

Här får vi exempel på vart man är på väg i denna ”enhetssträvan” målet är svävande och man vet inte vart man är på väg. Samtidigt tillåts ingen att uttala sig!? Stanley själv har en hel del sådana ämnen!? 

Manipulativt styr man vägen mot målet! 

Men under ytan pågår en process att alltmer närma sig Världs-kyrkan i det ekumeniska strävandet att ena allt under påven. 

Det märkbara är att denna enhets-förklaring som syftar till att beblanda sig med hedniskt avguderi, gnosticism och irrläror som är så uppenbara i den katolska Moderkyrkan, nu skall få en Institutionell dimension! Man går steg för steg genom provisoriska ”lägerplatser”! 

Hur kan man förlika Kristus och Beliar, eller om man går in till en sköka då blir man ett kött med Henne, det är just detta som sker i dessa kopplingar! Det som betecknas stort är avfallet, och lösaktigheten! 

Att man i detta samgående också förnekar Kristus är det ingen som ens vågar tala om!? 
Nu styr man mot Rom!

Here some stratagems from the ecumenical catholic intruders.



Will There Be an Ecumenical Pope Who Will Be the Antichrist?

http://www.cogwriter.com/antichrist.htm

Will There Be an Ecumenical Pope Who Will Be the Antichrist?

While many Protestants, others, and even various Catholics have believed that the final Antichrist will be a pope, certain Catholic writings support the idea that a final (or nearly final) pope will be ecumenical, be an antipope, and be the "false prophet" and/or the final Antichrist.

Furthermore, it appears that many Catholic prophecies suggests that it is an antipope that supports a new religious order:

Also notice the following:

Priest P. Huchedé (19th century): Antichrist will further make all men, great and small, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, bear a sign on their right arm or their forehead. (Apoc. 13:16). What this sign shall be time alone will reveal. Yet there are some {Catholic} commentators of the Holt Writ, who, according to a special revelation pretend to say that it shall be formed out of the Greek letters X and P, interlaced...which resembles the number of Christ. (Cornelius a Lapide in Epis. 2 to Thes.). No one can either buy or sell without this mark, as specified in the Apocalypse (13:17). (Huchedé, P.  Translated by JBD. History of Antichrist.  Imprimatur: Edward Charles Fabre, Bishop of Montreal.  English edition 1884, Reprint 1976.  TAN Books, Rockford (IL), p. 24).

Hence the idea of someone claiming to be a Roman pope and insisting on some type of cross, yet possibly being the final Antichrist is supported by several Catholic writings. The Antichrist is likely to claim to be Catholic, but will have changed that faith. People need to understand this now, before it is too late! All people everywhere should keep the original faith (for more details on what that was and who changed, please see the article Which Is Faithful: The Roman Catholic Church or the Genuine Church of God?).

Thus, while some Catholic prophecies praise a new religious order, it is clear that others correctly indicate that a new type of Catholicism will not be true to some of its beliefs.  The final Antichrist will betray the Church of Rome since he is with the Beast power until the very end (cf. Revelation 17:16-18; 19:20).

Furthermore, it needs to be understood that the Great Monarch would seem to be the same person as the ten-horned Beast (also known as 666).  Thus, there are Catholic prophecies that support the idea that a Pope/anti-pope will accept changes that a new European military leader will implement.
In addition, since most Protestants have no knowledge of Catholic prophecies, they do not grasp the danger of the “ecumenical” plans of some affiliated with the Roman Church.  Because after all is said and done,  the one we in the faithful Church of God would consider to be the ten-horned Beast (also known as 666 and the King of the North), will, according to Catholic prophecy, eliminate Protestantism:

Father Laurence Ricci, S.J. (died 1775): "After the rule of Napoleon a time will come when the people will become poor and the world will be punished in three ways: wars, famines, and pestilences. At a time when the whole world seems doomed, God will intervene. With His aide a valiant duke will arise from the ancient German house which was humiliated by the French monarch. This great ruler will restore stolen Church property. Protestantism will cease and the Turkish empire will end. This duke will be the most powerful monarch on earth. At a gathering of men noted for piety and wisdom he will, with the aid of the Pope, introduce new rules, and ban the spirit of confusion. Everywhere there will be one fold and one shepherd" (Connor, p.37).

St. Francis of Paola (Born in Italy, 15th century). "By the grace of the Almighty, the Great Monarch will annihilate heretics and unbelievers" (Dupont, p.38).

Why?  Because many Catholics have long considered Protestantism, and all non-Greco-Roman Catholicism as false.

  Notice what one priest reported:

Pope St. Pius V teaches in his Catechism, the Roman Catechism — also known as the Catechism of the Council of Trent that all of the Protestant religions are false religions, they’re inspired by the devil; and therefore their fruits are evil…The Protestant religions, as such, are inspired by the devil, as Pope St. Pius V teaches in his catechism (Kramer P. The Imminent Chastisement for Not Fulfilling Our Lady’s Request. An edited transcript of a speech given at the Ambassadors of Jesus and Mary Seminar in Glendale, California, September 24, 2004. THE FATIMA CRUSADER Issue 80, Summer 2005, pp. 32-45

http://www.fatimacrusader.com/cr80/cr80pg32.asp viewed 4/15/08).

Notice what some Catholics have written about certain of their “ecumenical plans”:

D.A. Birch “The Pope calls an Ecumenical Council which will be viewed as the greatest in the history of the Church. The world is spiritually and materially prosperous as never before and many Jews, Mohammedans, heathens and heretics will enter the Church” (Birch, p. 555).

Venerable Bartholomew Holzhauser (Born in the 17th century, in Germany) …God will bind Satan for a number of years until the days of the Son of Perdition…there will be an ecumenical council which will be the greatest of all councils.  By the grace of God, by the power of the Great Monarch, and by the authority of the Holy Pontiff, and by the union of the most devout princes, atheism and every heresy will be banished from the earth.  The Council will define the true sense of Holy Scripture, and this will be believed and accepted by everyone (Dupont, p. 40).

Priest Herman Kramer “The thunders may mean the dogmatic declarations of the Church against infidels expressed in an ecumenical council…such as that of…the Infallibility of the Pope…TheSeven Thunders may then be declarations of an ecumenical council clearing up all that was left unfinished by the magisterial office of the Church, before God will permit Satan to exert his supreme efforts to destroy her from without.  The Seven Thunders will strengthen the faithful and loyal clergy”…(Kramer H., pp. 241-242).

Priest Paul Kramer “The errors of Orthodoxy and of Protestantism will be embraced by that false church, it will be an ecumenical church because the Anti-Pope will be recognized by the world — not by the faithful, but by the world — by the secular world and the secular governments. The Anti-Pope will be recognized as the legitimate Pope of the "church," and the legitimate head of the Vatican State. That "church" will be united with all the false religions. They will be united together under the universality of the Masonic umbrella. In that motley ecumenical union will be the established religion of the so-called civilized world. This is how we will get into the time of great persecution such as the world has never seen (Kramer P. The Imminent Chastisement for Not Fulfilling Our Lady’s Request. An edited transcript of a speech given at the Ambassadors of Jesus and Mary Seminar in Glendale, California, September 24, 2004. THE FATIMA CRUSADER Issue 80, Summer 2005, pp. 32-45

 http://www.fatimacrusader.com/cr80/cr80pg32.asp viewed 4/06/08).

Hence some Catholics are looking to a time that an ecumenical pontiff will appear.  Some (like the first quotations above) are looking forward to that, while many others (like the last quotation above) consider that this will be a sign of an Anti-pope. 

Notice that the last quote indicates that some of the “errors of Orthodoxy and of Protestantism will be embraced”, yet this will be a church ruled by some type of a Pope.  That is where all of these “ecumenical discussions” are going to lead to as far as Catholic prophecies are concerned.

The current Pope (Benedict XVI) has been working for ecumenical unity and is apparently setting the way for a more ecumenical pontiff to arise (for information, see the news items Pope Benedict XVI to Have “Ecumenical” USA Trip and Pope Trying to Appease the Orthodox and the Lutherans)--even though I do not believe that even he understands that this will ultimately lead to the rising up of an antipope, the final Antichrist.

On a somewhat related note, the Pope who works with and/or precedes the Great Monarch is specifically prophesied to rule over the Eastern Orthodox Church as well—and re-establish Babylon!  Notice the following:

Abbott Joachim (died 1202)…A remarkable Pope will be seated on the pontifical throne, under special protection of the angels. Holy and full of gentleness, he shall undo all wrong, he shall recover the states of the Church, and reunite the exiled temporal powers. As the only Pastor, he shall reunite the Eastern to the Western Church...This holy Pope shall be both pastor and reformer. Through him the East and West shall be in ever lasting concord. The city of Babylon shall then be the head and guide of the world. Rome, weakened in temporal power, shall forever preserve her spiritual dominion, and shall enjoy great peace...At the beginning, in order to bring these happy results, having need of a powerful assistance, this holy Pontiff will ask the cooperation of the generous monarch of France (Great Monarch)… A man of remarkable sanctity will be his successor in the Pontifical chair.  Through him God will work so many prodigies that all men shall revere him (Connor, pp. 31-33).

“Prodigies” means miracles. 

Interestingly, the Roman Catholics do realize that the expression, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!" (Revelation 18:2) is referring to Rome. 

And the Bible says this happens after the Antichrist comes. It needs to be understood that although the above quote is in a book with an Imprimatur (high level Roman Catholic approval), some Roman Catholics have somewhat distanced themselves from some of Abott Joachim's writings (i.e. Birch, pp. 143,235, but other Roman Catholics writings tend to support the Abbott's writings, but I do not recall seeing others that support "Babylon" as the head of the world).

But it is clear that there is confusion amongst Catholic writers. And I believe that those who are warning against an ecumenical antipope who will make changes to their faith and lead the world astray are biblically and historically more correct than those who seem to embrace an ecumenical faith.

Perhaps it might be helpful to note that while the Bible shows that the Beast and the False Prophet perform miracles (Revelation 16:13-14), certain Catholic prophecies indicate that one of the popes also does miracles:

Bl. Anna-Maria Taigi (19th century)…. “After the three days of darkness, St. Peter and St. Paul, having come down from Heaven, will preach in the whole world and designate a new Pope. A great light will flash from their bodies and will settle upon the cardinal who is to become Pope. Christianity, then, will spread throughout the world. He is the Holy Pontiff, chosen by God to withstand the storm. At the end, he will have the gift of miracles, and his name shall be praised over the whole earth (Dupont, p.45).

The following suggest that the Great Monarch may also perform some type of miracles:

Abbe Souffrand (died 1828): "The Great Ruler will perform such great and noble deeds that the infidels will be forced to admit the working of God's Providence. Under this reign the greatest righteousness will be practiced and the earth will bear in overabundance…”(Connor, p. 37)

St. Thomas a'Becket (12th Century)…"A knight shall come from the West. He shall capture Milan, Lombardy, and the three Crowns. He shall then sail to Cyprus and Famagoste and land at Jaffa, and reach Christ's grave where he will fight. Wars and wonders shall befall till the people believe in Christ toward the end of the world" (Birch, p. 255).

The parallels to the ten-horned Beast and the False Prophet are undeniable (cf. Revelation 16:13;19:20).  And because of the wars, economic pressure, and wonders, many will be deceived into accepting the religion of the Beast and the False Prophet (Revelation 13).  Sadly, also including many Protestants. A new ecumenical religion is coming, probably trying to claim that it is Roman Catholic, that many will sadly follow. The Great Monarch that many Catholics seem to look forward to is apparently the coming future King of the North that certain other Catholic writings warn against!

Even though he had some incorrect ideas, notice what one famous Catholic saint and pontiff wrote:

St. Gregory the Great, Pope (d. 604): In those days, near the end ... an army of priest and two-thirds of the Christians will join the Schism (Culleton, R. Gerald. The Reign of Antichrist, p. 122)

Part of the reason that at least two-thirds (as I believe it will be substantially more than that) are likely to follow the changed version of Catholicism is that there is confusion amongst Catholic and other writings.

And part of this is because Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, and most Protestants simply do not realize that true Christianity was from the beginning, and will be until the end of the Church era, opposed to participation in carnal warfare (Military Service and the Churches of God: Do Real Christians Participate in Carnal Warfare?). 

Because nearly all who profess Christ do not really understand what happened to the true Church in the second through fourth centuries (and beyond), their foundation is on sand and thus their combined house shall fall greatly (c.f. Matthew 7:26-27).

Some Catholic Misunderstandings of Prophecy

One of the reasons that certain Roman Catholics and others who listen to them will have a difficult time understanding who the final Antichrist is is because the Roman Catholics tend to base their understanding of prophetic matters more on tradition than the Bible.

Although he originally had some of his information correct, the Roman Catholic supporting Irenaeus later misunderstood about Antichrist. Look at some of what he wrote:

And not only by the particulars already mentioned, but also by means of the events which shall occur in the time of Antichrist is it shown that he, being an apostate and a robber, is anxious to be adored as God; and that, although a mere slave, he wishes himself to be proclaimed as a king. For he (Antichrist) being endued with all the power of the devil, shall come, not as a righteous king, nor as a legitimate king, [i.e., one] in subjection to God, but an impious, unjust, and lawless one; as an apostate, iniquitous and murderous; as a robber, concentrating in himself [all] satanic apostasy, and setting aside idols to persuade [men] that he himself is God, raising up himself as the only idol, having in himself the multifarious errors of the other idols (Irenaeus. Adversus Haereses, Book V, Chapter 5, Verses 1).

Antichrist will not come setting aside idols.

Luther on ecumenism and papacy

History of the Papacy by J.A. Wylie: "...the Church (so-called) of Rome has no right to rank amongst Christian Churches. She is not a Church, neither is her religion the Christian religion. We are accustomed to speak of Popery as a corrupt form of Christianity. We concede too much. The Church of Rome bears the same relation to the Church of Christ which the hierarchy of Baal bore to the institute of Moses; and Popery stands related to Christianity only in the same way in which Paganism stood related to primeval Revelation. Popery is not a corruption simply, but a transformation. It may be difficult to fix the time when it passed from the one into the other; but the change is incontestible. Popery is the gospel transubstantiated into the flesh and blood of Paganism, under a few of the accidents of Christianity."

Martin Luther

Just as in the days of the Apostles, so at this day we are forced to hear from certain denominations that we (by our obstinacy to adhere to the truth) do offend against love and unity in the churches, because we reject their doctrine. It would be better (they say) that we should let it pass, especially since the doctrine in dispute is what they call non-essential, and, therefore (they say) to stir up so great a discord and contention in the church over one or two doctrines (and those not the most important ones) is unfruitful and unnecessary.

To this I reply: Cursed be that love and unity which cannot be preserved except at the peril of the word of God.

The negotiation about doctrinal agreement displeases me altogether, for this is utterly impossible unless the pope has his papacy abolished. Therefore avoid and flee those who seek the middle of the road. Think of me after I am dead and such middle-of-the-road men arise, for nothing good will come of it. There can be no compromise. (What Luther Says, II: 1019)

Ah, my dear brother in Christ, bear with me if here or elsewhere I use such coarse language when speaking of the wretched, confronted, atrocious monster at Rome! He who knows my thoughts must say that I am much, much, much too lenient and have neither words nor thought adequately to describe the shameful, abominable blasphemy to which he subjects the Word and name of Christ, our dear Lord and Savior. There are some Christians, wicked Christians indeed, who now would gloss things over to make the pope appear against in a good light and who, after he does so and has been dragged out of the mud, would like to reinstate him on the altar. But they are wicked people, whoever they may be, who defend the pope and want me to be quiet about the means whereby he has done harm. Truly, I cannot do this. All true, pious Christians, who love Christ and His Word, should, as said, be sincerely hostile to the pope. They should persecute him and injure him…. All should do this in their several calling, to the best of their ability, with all faithfulness and diligence. (What Luther Says, II: 1072)

What kind of a church is the pope’s church? It is an uncertain, vacillating and tottering church. Indeed, it is a deceitful, lying church, doubting and unbelieving, without God’s Word. For the pope with his wrong keys teaches his church to doubt and to be uncertain. If it is a vacillating church, then it is not the church of faith, for the latter is founded upon a rock, and the gates of hell cannot prevail against it (Matt.16:18). If it is not the church of faith, then it is not the Christian church, but it must be an unchristian, anti-Christian, and faithless church which destroys and ruins the real, holy, Christian church. (Luther’s Works, vol. 40, Church and Ministry II, The Keys, p.348)

All this is to be noted carefully, so that we can treat with contempt the filthy, foolish twaddle that the popes present in their decrees about their Roman church, that is, about their devil’s synagogue (Rev.2:9), which separates itself from common Christendom and the spiritual edifice built up on this stone, and instead invents for itself a fleshly worldly, worthless, lying, blasphemous, idolatrous authority over all of Christendom. One of these two things must be true: if the Roman church is not built on this rock along with the other churches, then it is the devil’s church; but if it is built, along with all the other churches, on this rock, then it cannot be lord or head over the other churches. For Christ the cornerstone knows nothing of two unequal churches, but only of one church alone, just as the Children’s Faith, that is, the faith of all of Christendom, says, ”I believe in one holy, Christian church,” and does not say, ”I believe in one holy Roman church.” The Roman church is and should be one portion or member of the holy Christian church, not the head, which befits solely Christ the cornerstone. If not, it is not a Christian but an UN-Christian and anti-Christian church, that is, a papal school of scoundrels. (Luther’s Works, Volume 41, Church and Ministry III, Against The Roman Papacy, An Institution Of The Devil, p.311)



I believe the pope is the masked and incarnate devil because he is the Antichrist. As Christ is God incarnate, so the Antichrist is the devil incarnate. The words are really spoken of the pope when its said that hes a mixed god, an earthly god, that is , a god of the earth. Here god is understood as god of this world. Why does he call himself an earthly god, as if the one, almighty God werent also on the earth? The kingdom of the pope really signifies the terrible wrath of God, namely, the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place. (Luthers Works, vol.54, Table Talks, No.4487, p.346)


C. H. Spurgeon on Popery


"It is the bounden duty of every Christian to pray against Antichrist, and as to what Antichrist is no sane man ought to raise a question. If it be not the Popery in the Church of Rome there is nothing in the world that can be called by that name. It wounds Christ, robs Christ of His glory, puts sacramental efficacy in the place of His atonement, and lifts a piece of bread in the place of the Saviour....If we pray against it, because it is against Him, we shall love the persons though we hate their errors; we shall love their souls, though we loathe and detest their dogmas...."

-- C. H. Spurgeon

Heb 11:25 Han ville hellre utstå lidande med Guds folk än för en kort tid leva i syndig njutning;
Heb 12:2 Och må vi därvid se på Jesus, trons hövding och fullkomnare, på honom, som i stället för att taga den glädje som låg framför honom, utstod korsets lidande och aktade smäleken för intet, och som nu sitter på högra sidan om Guds tron.
Heb 12:3 Ja, på honom, som har utstått så mycken gensägelse av syndare, på honom mån I tänka, så att I icke tröttnen och uppgivens i edra själar.
Heb 12:15 Och sen till, att ingen går miste om Guds nåd, och att ingen giftig rot skjuter skott och bliver till fördärv, så att menigheten därigenom bliver besmittad;
Heb 12:16 sen till, att ingen är en otuktig människa eller ohelig såsom Esau, han som för en enda maträtt sålde sin förstfödslorätt.
Heb 12:17 I veten ju att han ock sedermera blev avvisad, när han på grund av arvsrätt ville få välsignelsen; han kunde nämligen icke vinna någon ändring, fastän han med tårar sökte därefter.
Heb 10:36 I behöven nämligen ståndaktighet för att kunna göra Guds vilja och få vad utlovat är.
Heb 10:37 Ty "ännu en helt liten tid, så kommer den som skall komma, och han skall icke dröja;
Heb 10:38 och min rättfärdige skall leva av tro. Men om någon drager sig undan, så finner min själ icke behag i honom".
Heb 10:39 Dock, vi höra icke till dem som draga sig undan, sig själva till fördärv; vi höra till dem som tro och så vinna sina själar.

Ord 25:26 Såsom en grumlad källa och en fördärvad brunn, så är en rättfärdig som vacklar inför den ogudaktige.

Upp 3:16 Men nu, då du är ljum och varken varm eller kall, skall jag utspy dig ur min mun.

Se Ljum, sammanblandad, mixad, förväxlad, utbytt, utväxlad, ersatt, avlöst, efterträdd, liknöjd, likgiltig!

2Ti 4:7 Jag har kämpat den goda kampen, jag har fullbordat mitt lopp, jag har bevarat tron.
2Ti 4:8 Nu ligger rättfärdighetens segerkrans tillreds åt mig, och Herren, den rättfärdige domaren, skall giva den åt mig på "den dagen", och icke åt mig allenast, utan åt alla som hava älskat hans tillkommelse.
