Pope Francis Declared 'World's Greatest Leaders'
The entire world is giving its power and strength to the beast power of Revelation 13 and 17. This very act is described in the book of Revelation - "These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast" (Rev. 17:13). -Advent Messenger Commentary
Pope Francis tops Fortune's 'World's Greatest Leaders' list, but no ObamaToday.com

Pope Francis was named the world's greatest leader by Fortune magazine, topping a diverse list released Thursday.
Fortune’s first list of the World’s 50 Greatest Leaders includes a Hollywood actress, a baseball
superstar, a teenage education advocate and the president of a small California college. It also includes a former American president, but the current one failed to make the cut.
"President Obama wasn't excluded from Fortune's World's 50 Greatest Leaders list,” Fortune said in a statement. “He simply didn't make this year's list of 50 outstanding individuals who have demonstrated rare leadership, leadership in multiple areas or who have demonstrated a long history of leading.”
Pope Francis ranked first among the world leaders for an attitude that has drawn more attention and admiration in just one year than any of his predecessors have over several decades.
All candidates had to be currently active, so retirees or recently deceased leader such as Nelson Mandela were not considered.
