Evangelical leader High-fives the Pope

Evangelical leader High-fives the Pope

Advent Messenger | Editorial

Every day it seems that more and more Protestant leaders are lining up to meet with the Pope. Evangelical mega church leader and television evangelist James Robison went to Rome to give Pope Francis a high-five. He was in Rome with several Pentecostal and Charismatic leaders who were invited by the Pope to visit him.

James Robison said that the meeting with the Pope was something that "God has done." In a report published by his ministry, he claims that he had to fight back tears while he was speaking to Pope Francis. He said that Jesus was looking down on them and praising His Father.The following is a an excerpt from his own words.

As an evangelist, I want you to know what you just said deserves a high five!” The translator communicated what I was saying and in a moment of exuberance he raised his hand and gave his first high five ever. What a beautiful picture of love and supernatural oneness for the sake of the Gospel and those Jesus came to redeem.We continued in such glorious fellowship that words could never begin to describe it. I am fighting back tears even as I write, so glorious was the manifest presence of Jesus. I couldn’t help but wonder in those moments if Jesus, as He did when Stephen was stoned leading to the conversion of Saul of Tarsus to become Paul the Apostle, perhaps once again stood at the right hand of the Father looking down on that scene in Rome between Evangelicals and the Pope, turn to the Father and say, “Look, I think my prayer is about to be answered. Look, Dad, maybe we can put Your arms around the world that I died to redeem and I live to fill to overflowing with Your joy, peace and love.”

Protestans have taken another step towards the Pope's New World Order. They are on the path to destruction if they don't repent. These are the perilous times that the Bible speaks about. The One World Church under the leadership of Pope Francis is what is predicted in Revelation 17:1-5 and 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12. The terrible day of the Lord is just before us. Lift up your eyes for our redemption draweth nigh!

"The Protestants of the United States will be foremost in stretching their hands across the gulf to grasp the hand of Spiritualism; they will reach over the abyss to clasp hands with the Roman power; and under the influence of this threefold union, this country will follow in the steps of Rome in trampling on the rights of conscience." The Great Controversy p. 588.

We have gone from clasping hands to now slapping hands with the papacy. We are not just shaking hands but giving high-fives to the man of sin. High-fives are usually exchanged by athletes who are on the same team. Could this mean that now Protestants and Catholics are on the same team? God help us.
