COP27, the Pope and Mount Sinai
By Pastor Hal Mayer
Welcome to Keep the Faith Ministry once again. We are now entering a new phase of the end times, a period of open deceptions that the people see but don’t recognize. They are patent lies, but people believe them as the truth. And they affect their lives. What we have been experiencing in the past, will intensify and become dominant. We have not seen however, the pressure that will come upon God’s people, but it surely will. Today, we are going to try and outline the developments in the environmental structure of end time events. And I hope to encourage everyone to become like Enoch, holy, committed to Christ, and prayerful. For no one can protect you from globalism’s control over conscience except Christ.
Let us pray. Our Father in heaven, as we take up this very serious topic, we pray that Your Holy Spirit will impress our minds with the need to prepare for trouble. We are facing a new world order, and we can understand what was going on at the time of the tower of Babel, which is a prophetic prototype for our times. So, please be with us as we study. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Please turn with me in your Bibles to Genesis 10:10. The Bible says that Nimrod wanted to be a world ruler.
“And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.”
After the flood, which was a major change in the climate on earth, man began to multiply. They became fearful that it could happen again. Nimrod played on that fear. He was a builder of cities, wicked cities that consolidated evil among those that lived there. His agenda was to establish a monarchy that would encompass the whole world.
Listen to this from Patriarchs and Prophets, page 118.
“God had directed men to disperse throughout the earth, to replenish and subdue it; but these Babel builders determined to keep their community united in one body, and to found a monarchy that should eventually embrace the whole earth. Thus their city would become the metropolis of a universal empire; its glory would command the admiration and homage of the world and render the founders illustrious. The magnificent tower, reaching to the heavens, was intended to stand as a monument of the power and wisdom of its builders, perpetuating their fame to the latest generations.”
But this monarchy would expand from these four cities, and other cities would be built. This is the way it is today. Relatively few people live in the country. Today most people live in or right around a city. And the cities are wicked, just as wicked today as they were in the time of Nimrod, Noah and Lot.
We see the monarchy that is being developed again. It is in fact a monarchy with a king on the throne that controls the world, but also includes a loose, coordinated system made-up of a cabal of billionaires, business leaders and major global corporations, social media companies, public health officials, state rulers over countries, and churches. The only one who sits on a throne, so to speak, is the Pope. And he makes it look like he is not the leader of this cabal. At least he works very hard to keep his fingerprints from the bad side of the cabal.
Pope Francis has been in the middle of the globalization, facilitating it and encouraging it. Just like the globalists are aiming for a global control of every man, woman and child, the Pope and his church wants to establish a global religion that will be able to make laws in lands that were once free that will control conscience. But the Pope aims to control political and economic globalization too, because that affects conscience and freedom also.
To support globalization, through climate control he published an encyclical called “Laudato Si,” which proclaimed the dangers of climate change and that humans are responsible for it through excessive use of fossil fuels. While many focused on the issue of a day of rest for the planet, there is another aspect involved. Pope Francis’ encyclical was designed to promote globalization, which would place him on the throne of the world. Since the publication of the encyclical, things have only gotten more interesting. The Pope has been very active in pushing his global church into position to be the climate puppet master.
A major achievement for the Pope was the climate conference in Paris. At this conference the major nations of the world, including the United States, signed an agreement that would place them all under obligation to meet certain objectives over the course of time. It was a major step toward papal dominance of the climate issue and control of the world.
The Bible predicts that the Roman Catholic Church is headed for world dominion. It is apparent that she is using the climate change issue to achieve this goal. Rome is building the tower of Babel all over again. Revelation 13:7 says, “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”
But the Bible says more than that. Revelation 13:8 says that the people will be so enamored with the papacy that they all will worship him. They will be so bewitched with the Pope and his actions to save the planet, that those that want to live in sin will worship him because he enables them. His global solutions don’t involve giving up sin.
“And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
And this one world religion should not be surprising to any of us. It will be established along with a final attempt at one world government, and the two will potentiate each other. And since the Pope is the prime mover and instigator of the climate movement, the development of a political climate agenda among world leaders is certainly welcomed by the Catholic Church and will be used to force everyone into compliance with the papal agenda. There will be two religions at the end of time. The false religion built on the principles of the papacy and of Satan, and the true faith made up of a small remnant that keep the commandments of God and have the faith of Jesus. It’s very hard for the people of the world to resist a political religion, because it makes them feel as though they are in the right and have power. Might makes right doesn’t it? But it is a deception since it is not based on the word of God.
The mark of the beast will be institutionalized into churches and faith groups, and baked into politics. It will all be in harmony and it will seem like a great global revival, and those who do not go along with it are out of step with God and His authority. In the end, only the remnant described in the Bible, God’s true people, will know what the truth really is because they know and believe the Bible above everything else, even more than what their senses tell them. And they will be made to look like they are blasphemous and criminally obstinate. The world has been institutionalizing hatred and deception, baking it in to any and every aspect of society, so why should we be surprised if the mark of the beast is institutionalized too?
What does this new one world religion consist of? Turn with me in your Bibles to 1 Kings 16:31.
“And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him.”
Baal was the storm god. He was a nature god and the Phoenicians worshipped him along with other nature gods. Jezebel was especially dedicated to Baal because she was the high priestesses of Baal. She certainly created a major storm for God’s people in those days. It was her agenda to force compliance to the worship of Baal on all of Israel. And she had a full contingent of enforcement forces that she used to coerce compliance. And it was deadly to be uncompliant or a skeptic. This false worship led Israel into a climate emergency, a drought imposed by God through Elijah that forced Ahab into a confrontation. So, the lesson is obvious. When the world worships the creature more than the creator, it sets up a climate emergency that causes a confrontation. And this confrontation will be the last, and when people come to their senses it will be too late for them to correct themselves and repent. We are seeing that now being developed in our world.
God’s people should be aware that climate issues will be a very big thing at the end of time. They should also be aware that they should not be involved in the political and religious aspects of it. Listen to this statement from Great Controversy, page 589.
“Satan works through the elements also to garner his harvest of unprepared souls. He has studied the secrets of the laboratories of nature, and he uses all his power to control the elements as far as God allows… It is God that shields His creatures and hedges them in from the power of the destroyer. But the Christian world have shown contempt for the law of Jehovah; and the Lord will do just what He has declared that He would—He will withdraw His blessings from the earth and remove His protecting care from those who are rebelling against His law and teaching and forcing others to do the same. Satan has control of all whom God does not especially guard. He will favor and prosper some in order to further his own designs, and he will bring trouble upon others and lead men to believe that it is God who is afflicting them.”
Listen to Prophets and Kings, page 278.
“Storms, earthquakes, whirlwinds, fire, and the sword will spread desolation everywhere, until men’s hearts shall fail them for fear and for looking after those things which shall come upon the earth.”
Most of these events can be in one way or another, related to climate change. So, it is predictable that an emphasis on climate change will dominate the global agenda. Satan will use it to try to put God’s people in a very tight spot. Instead of obedience to God by keeping the 4th commandment and the other nine commandments, humanity will try to change the way the climate develops. They will worship the climate along with the beast of Revelation 13.
God’s people should remember His promise that there will be seasons until the end of time. Let’s look at Genesis 8:21, 22. Notice that while the earth remains there will be seasons, planting time and harvest time.
“And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”
And particularly notice that He says He will not smite every living thing. So climate stress will only affect some people. Floods, drought, even earthquakes will only be limited in scope. Though they will be huge by our standards, they will still be sprinkled with mercy. Listen to this from Great Controversy, page 628.
“These plagues are not universal, or the inhabitants of the earth would be wholly cut off. Yet they will be the most awful scourges that have ever been known to mortals. All the judgments upon men, prior to the close of probation, have been mingled with mercy. The pleading blood of Christ has shielded the sinner from receiving the full measure of his guilt; but in the final judgment, wrath is poured out unmixed with mercy.”
Nevertheless, in spite of what the Bible says, and in harmony with the messaging of Pope Francis, world leaders gathered at Mount Sinai to put forward a prophetic inter-religious call to action called Ten Universal Principles for Climate Justice. This is part of the COP27 meeting, which is a United Nations meeting called the 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). It was held in a nearby resort.
They held this UNFCCC event near Mount Sinai to symbolize the importance of protecting the environment. They intend to create the impression that these 10 points are just as important as the 10 Commandments that God gave to Moses on Mount Sinai.
Religious leaders gather in Sinai to receive “Climate Justice Ten Commandments”
“According to the Interfaith Center, the location of COP27 is especially meaningful because the Sinai Desert is “a place of revelation in the collective consciousness of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and others. It is a site for turning to God and receiving God’s message.”
“Returning to Sinai” — A Prophetic Call for Climate Justice
and Ceremony of Repentance
So, the 10 Commandments are God’s message to the human race. And they do not change. But these people organized this in the Sinai desert because it is a place where people have received God’s message before, as if this environmental movement is from God. 40,000 attendees flocked to the Sinai desert. This was a major event. It was held from November 6 to 18, 2022. And it is nature worship.
Romans 1:25 says, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Why are they revising the 10 Commandments if they can? It was to create a “transformative moment to protect the environment.” They are going to put more emphasis on the creature rather than the creator.
But there was a plan to gather at the site that is believed to be the site of Mount Sinai where God gave the 10 Commandments to call for “climate repentance.” The Egyptian government wouldn’t let the large group meet there. So, alternatively, there were events around the world in various places to promote “climate repentance.”
A news report said, “Jews, Muslims, Christians, Hindus and Buddhists from Israel, Egypt, the US, India, Spain and the UK plan to gather Sunday around the world to call on global leaders to act for “climate repentance” and to implement ten climate principles.”
Multifaith leaders to gather in Israel and around the world for ‘climate repentance’
“The events — planned to take place in Jerusalem, London, the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh and other locations — are timed to coincide with the United Nations COP27 climate conference currently being held in Egypt, which ends on November 18.”
“Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, who is also known as the Green Patriarch due to his dedication to environmental issues, released a statement ahead of the event decrying the ‘abuse of nature and the exploitation of its resources’ as a ‘sin against God the Creator and the gift of creation.’”
The 10 principles for climate repentance cited by the organizers are:
1. We are stewards of this world.
2. Creation manifests divinity.
3. Everything in life is interconnected.
4. Do no harm.
5. Look after tomorrow.
6. Rise above ego for our world.
7. Change our inner climate.
8. Repent and return.
9. Every action matters.
10. Use mind, open heart
These very vague and ill-defined principles set up a false nature worship. Modern Jezebel is promoting it. It’s as if they are written to not offend anyone and accommodate everyone’s religious sensitivities in the spirit of modern ecumenicalism. While that in itself is a problem, it is vague enough that it can be interpreted anyway one wants to, especially whoever is in charge of this ecobabble. It gives them total flexibility to define any of these 10 principles.
But really the essence of this is to become environmentally aware and to open your mind and heart to the enemy’s worship of the creature rather than the Creator.
Listen to what Rabbi Neril said about the conference.
“We need to change the operating system that humanity generated and is degrading God’s creation. We need to switch from greed, short-term thinking, and individualistic behavior to spiritual satisfaction, long-term thinking, and altruism. And by doing that we will address the symptoms of the problem and manifest a new earth. May God help us.”
A new earth? They want to bring the kingdom of God about in their own way. Climate Correction is the new kingdom of God on earth. They don’t see Jesus coming in the clouds very soon to destroy this world and create a new one. In fact, this Rabbi doesn’t believe that Jesus even was the son of God, so how can he be looking for the second coming.
Listen to how the Times of Israel put it.
“An initiative to mobilize faith leaders worldwide to push governments to do more about climate change kicked off Sunday morning with an Israeli environmental activist smashing mock tablets of stone atop an Egyptian peak believed by many to be Mount Sinai, to symbolize the world’s failure to protect the planet.”
Activists smash tablets atop ‘Mount Sinai’ to launch faith-based climate push
These activists were angry, not that the world has strayed from the 10 Commandments and disobeys God. They were angry that the world has failed to protect the planet. They’re interested in the 10 Commandments only as a political tool.
But God’s 10 Commandments are far different than the 10 environmental principles. The thing is, if the 10 Commandments were kept as they should be, the environment would be preserved. If everyone respected them as they should, especially the Sabbath, they would also be respectful of the environment. But more than that, God’s protection would not be withdrawn gradually like it is today, but would prevent deterioration.
COP27 it’s a modern-day repetition of the way things have gone in the past. History repeats itself. We see world leaders meeting in councils large and small. The G7, the G20, the European Union, the BRICS, the North American free trade, or NAFTA, CAFTA, which covers Central America, the UN, the WHO, the World Economic Forum, the Paris meeting on climate, and many more, often meet for various reasons for particular agendas. Often Roman Catholic Church representatives are present. And correspondingly, ecumenical meetings are designed to bring the churches and religions into unity around Rome’s agenda. And they will fall in line with Rome’s environmental agenda too. They are always trying to influence world leaders to adopt papal policies, including its climate policies. They have been influencing them on behalf of the common good policy, the ecumenical policy, the economic policies, and the political policies. COP meetings have been held 27 times now. But Rome bides her time while working stealthily and consistently to affect her will.
Also, Catholic leaders or representatives attend church meetings to observe the proceedings. They attend meetings of the Methodists, the Presbyterians, the Baptists, etcetera. They even attend meetings of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and have been doing so for quite a number of sessions now. And a Seventh-day Adventist from the religious liberty department of the General Conference organizes and manages one of these ecumenical meetings too. It should be no surprise that the Seventh-day Adventist church is aligning itself with the papal agenda too.
The Catholic Church has been holding World Youth days for a long time. The purpose of course is to align global youth, mainly Catholic youth, around the global agenda of the Pope. The Pope knows that this will have influence on other youth of other faiths. These kids go to school together in public schools because tuition is free. And their friends will eventually be influenced by the youth that have been to the World Youth days. It’s brilliant and farsighted.
Listen to this interesting statement from Great Controversy, page 53.
“The archdeceiver had not completed his work. He was resolved to gather the Christian world under his banner and to exercise his power through his vicegerent, the proud pontiff who claimed to be the representative of Christ. Through half-converted pagans, ambitious prelates, and world-loving churchmen he accomplished his purpose. Vast councils were held from time to time, in which the dignitaries of the church were convened from all the world. In nearly every council the Sabbath which God had instituted was pressed down a little lower, while the Sunday was correspondingly exalted. Thus the pagan festival came finally to be honored as a divine institution, while the Bible Sabbath was pronounced a relic of Judaism, and its observers were declared to be accursed.”
This was the way it was in the early days of the Middle Ages. And this same principle will be the way it is handled in the last days. Meetings and conferences large and small will be used to promote Sunday observance.
While the Sabbath has already been diminished for centuries, Sunday has lost its traction with secularists, and a few religious denominations don’t keep it because of what the 10 Commandments say. Sunday exultation will become a central feature of many of these meetings. It already is behind the scenes. The papal climate agenda places the Pope in the middle of the global climate issue and elevates him in respect among the nations of the world. This is just where he wants to be, in a position to be the voice the nations regarding worship and religion.
Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican Secretary of State, attended COP27 and gave a speech. In that speech he announced that the meeting was the first that the Vatican was a participant as a nation state.
“This is the first UNFCCC session to which the Holy See participates as a State Party both to the convention and the Paris agreement.”
Also, in this speech he said there is a moral obligation to act together to stem climate change.
“The human face of the climate emergency challenges us deeply. We have a moral duty to act concretely in order to prevent and respond to the always more frequent and severe humanitarian impacts caused by climate change… COP27 provides us with a further opportunity which cannot be wasted.”
The cardinal also said that it was important for “individual and collective conversion” to the papal agenda for climate change.
“Mr. President, the social-ecological crisis that we are living is a propitious moment for individual and collective conversion and for concrete decisions that can no longer be postponed.”
The cardinal concluded his speech by mentioning the common good.
“By acceding to the Convention in the Paris agreement, the Holy See is even more committed to moving forward on this journey together for the common good of humanity and especially on behalf of our youth who are looking to us to care for present and future generations.”
Friends, this is popery speaking. And she has for a long time been at the head of these climate meetings, even though she lets other people run them. You can be sure she guides them along the way.
Revelation 18:7 says, “For she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.”
Rome is in control. The world has come under the grip of Rome. Notice the emphasis on conversion, both individual and collective. “Collective” is referring to the common good. But, of course, the Pope wants individual conversion as well to support this issue. And Satan is no less interested in individual conversion to his plans. Notice also the cardinal’s emphasis on the youth. This ties in with the Roman Catholic World Youth Day which is coming very soon. The Pope also wants to mobilize youth to promote his climate agenda. But notice this statement from Great Controversy, page 581.
COP27: Holy See calls for action from world leaders
“God’s word has given warning of the impending danger; let this be unheeded, and the Protestant world will learn what the purposes of Rome really are, only when it is too late to escape the snare. She is silently growing into power. Her doctrines are exerting their influence in legislative halls, in the churches, and in the hearts of men. She is piling up her lofty and massive structures in the secret recesses of which her former persecutions will be repeated. Stealthily and unsuspectedly she is strengthening her forces to further her own ends when the time shall come for her to strike. All that she desires is vantage ground, and this is already being given her. We shall soon see and shall feel what the purpose of the Roman element is. Whoever shall believe and obey the word of God will thereby incur reproach and persecution.”
Rome is not referring to conversion to Christ. She is referring to conversion to her climate change agenda. And why is the papacy pushing this agenda? It is because they want to impose a Sunday law for the climate. Deep down underneath it all their agenda is about Sunday worship. It takes various disguises to veil the real agenda. But if Rome is going to control the world and do it completely, she has to also ultimately and publicly promote worship. Sunday worship has been her agenda for a long time. In fact, for centuries. But Rome is actually going to promote Sunday worship for the sake of the climate.
In the lead up to COP15 Cardinal Turkson gave a speech in which he highlighted that humans have the responsibility to take care of nature. He explained that this comes from the book of Genesis, when at creation God charged Adam to till and keep the garden. He said, “To ’till’ was to make the earth productive, while to ‘keep’ was to ensure that the earth maintains its productive qualities and traits to support life all the time…
“This imperative of care also extends to the teaching about resting on the Sabbath, which is, for human beings, also to preserve creation…
“Sabbath has a sense of liberation and respite, rest to any system that is oppressed and lives in bondage.”
He also highlighted that the word used in the book of Genesis to describe keeping the garden is the same word used to describe the relationship between Cain and Abel.
Genesis 4:9, 10 says, “And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper? And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.
Cardinal Turkson explained, “Our relationship toward creation is similar and comparable to our relationship as human beings, one towards the other. It is the relationship of fraternity and brotherhood.”
Then he added and called for a change of mentality, “We are collectively called to undergo ecological conversion… moving from a desire to control and dominate, to a desire to safeguard and to protect.”
So, the papal arguments have been honed and refined and they have been set out before the world. And they are bearing fruit. Rome is going to get her way. She is going to sit as queen of the world. And protecting the climate is a global issue. Anyone who does not comply with her will, will be persecuted and restricted from society, censored and cancelled. Rome will not do this from the top down, she will do it by using society to enforce it through collectivism, or by social pressure, for the common good. She will get society promoting the “common good,” which is to give up some rights for the greater good of society. And they will remove the rights of those who keep the Sabbath and refuse to worship on Sunday. That’s the goal and the reason for all this discussion and unity. It has been very expensive to do. And those who obey the law of God will be set against the “common good.” So, society will enact a Sunday law through the legislative bodies of the nations which she will encourage through her stealthy programs and behavior. She is already doing that.
At COP27 a new book was launched called Faith Voices for Ecocide Law. In this book they are giving world leaders the legal methods and means to imprison, prosecute, and otherwise persecute those who individually damage or destroy the environment. This is what the editor Pella Thiel from End Ecocide Sweden said, “Protection of nature at the highest level is urgent for the transition to a sustainable society. Faith traditions carry the hope that we can agree to this fundamental piece of legislation in time. This book is a very engaging collection of voices and we hope it will be a useful resource for faith communities and others, to explore different perspectives and to unite in action and support for ecocide law.”
Listen to this concept in the new environmental ecocide book.
“Ecocide means unlawful or wanton acts committed with knowledge that there is a substantial likelihood of severe and either widespread or long-term damage to the environment being caused by those acts.”
The book proclaims, “We can be healers.” “We need new rules to abide by.”
“Together we strive to end ecocide and heal the earth. We are temples, churches, pagodas, mosques, synagogues, cathedrals and sacred sites all around the world. With faith, hope, love and care for our common future!”
The book also promotes nature worship. “Reverence for the earth and its profound ecological processes.”
“There is no separation between a lake or the sea, and us, we are also water. The water is the river of life, it is where we grow and are cradled into this world.”
“There is no other way then to protect mother earth. She is carrying us and feeding us, and there will be generations coming after us. We have to take responsibility for them.”
One author wrote, “To me, ecocide is suicide. Ecocide is genocide. When we hurt the planet, we hurt ourselves. We hurt our coming generations.”
The book is a collection of authors from various faith traditions including Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, and indigenous people. So, you can see where this is headed.
The book places nature on an equality with humanity. Let’s read what it says. “Nature, or the environment, is not something out there, separate from us. We are nature, we are the environment.”
“Instead we should be looking at the natural world not as resources to be conserved and husbanded, but as having rights of its own, its own integrity, independent of human needs.”
“A new life of humility gives room to more voices than my own, to release the song of praise that is hidden in all that exist, makes me a part of the choir of creation in the song of praise of all creation – from whales to hummingbirds, from grass to oak trees, from bees to eagles, from children, women and men!”
“Our ancients, who read the stars and traveled across our mighty ocean in their giant canoes millennia before European discovery and conquest, considered themselves part of the ecosystem, not above it.”
In actuality what this does is that it lowers humanity to a lesser priority than nature and elevates nature to a higher place than man. While there is interdependence of life, placing too much emphasis on elevating nature creates a fulfillment of the prophecy in scripture which says, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. ”That’s Romans 1:25.
That’s why the people received the Climate Justice 10 commandments at Mount Sinai during COP27. They wanted to symbolize that the protection of the environment is as important as the 10 Commandments.
Now notice who will be prosecuted for crimes against the environment. Listen to the World Economic Forum statement from several years ago.
“This would create an arrestable offence for anyone committing ecocide and would make individuals responsible for acts or decisions that cause severe damage to the environment liable for criminal prosecution.”
They are setting a trap, first to make an example of those who wantonly damage the environment. And they will certainly find some to fall into it. Secondly, if Bible Sabbath keeping can be construed to include destruction of the environment, a Sabbath keeper could be prosecuted for breaking the ecocide law. This is the ultimate goal or target, the real target of Satan’s environmental policy. It will be easy to justify breaking the Sunday law as ecocide. When the Sunday law is enacted, it will eventually be a universal law. When Bible Sabbath keepers are seen to break the Sunday law because of their convictions, while the huge natural calamities continue and get worse it’ll be easy to pin destruction of the environment as a crime on Sabbath keepers.
Listen to this from the same book, page 604.
“Fearful is the issue to which the world is to be brought. The powers of earth, uniting to war against the commandments of God, will decree that “all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond” (Revelation 13:16), shall conform to the customs of the church by the observance of the false sabbath. All who refuse compliance will be visited with civil penalties, and it will finally be declared that they are deserving of death. On the other hand, the law of God enjoining the Creator’s rest day demands obedience and threatens wrath against all who transgress its precepts.”
In Laudato Si, Pope Francis made a statement that brings this all together. He said in point 286, “Christians, in respect of religious freedom and of the common good of all, should seek to have Sundays and the Church’s holy days recognized as legal holidays.”
Friends, we are right at the end of time. There is no time to lose. You must get your life in harmony with heaven and with heaven’s laws if you want to escape the destruction that’s coming on the world.
Let us pray. Dear Father in heaven, we are living in very serious times. Satan is now making his moves stealthily, imperceptively to most people. Please help us to remain awake and vigilant in light of what we have learned today. You’re about to allow your people to be fully dependent on you. While it’s thrilling, it is also a fearful time. So, please stand by our sides. Guide us and give us a way to navigate the future, so that we can be with you forever in heaven after the crisis is over, and with thank you and praise you for the rest of eternity. In Jesus’ name, amen.
