THE ROSARY AND THE SEDUCTION OF EVANGELICALS

Excellent post at Lighthouse Trails…

Pope Francis/Vatican Launch eRosary to Help Bring About “World Peace

Excerpt… “with Christian leaders like Beth Moore and Rick Warren (who are followed by millions) doing their part to show the evangelical church that there is nothing seriously wrong with linking arms with Rome, maybe the eRosary will be attractive to evangelical young people as well. That is not as far fetched as it may sound to some…”

Not far fetched at all!  

I can think of two instances when Protestant women were lured into praying the rosary.

The first was at the former large non-denominational church we attended. My husband was in the lobby of the church where people often fellowshipped after or before a service. A woman we knew who attended the church told him that she had joined a Catholic Charismatic prayer group. My husband warned her. He said they’ll have you praying the rosary before long, The lady looked at him and said I feel sick. They already have me praying the rosary!

The second was at the nursing home where we held Sunday services for the residents. One Christian woman who grew up in the Evangelical church told us she had joined a Catholic prayer group at the nursing home. I warned her. I told her they would want to teach her the rosary. She said she was already learning it! As we spoke she told me that when she was young her mother warned her about Roman Catholicism. I think she may have had Catholic friends that were leading her astray. She told me her mother warned her to stay away. I told her your Mother’s prayers were heard because here I am in love to warn you again. 

The Roman Catholic “Mother Mary” Deception and The Destruction of Souls

The Lord delivered me from the “Mary” deception some 30 years ago. I praise Him for His mercy towards me! I pray that the Lord would open the eyes of many other Roman Catholics to the truth. I also pray that the Lord would convict the Evangelicals regarding their ever growing ecumenical ties with Rome.

RELAPSE INTO HEATHENISM

In our modern day, many pastors have forgotten “it is written”, and they have “relapsed into heathenism.”  The scary thing is that no one seems to notice or care.  We need to read Foxes Book of Martyrs and Martyrs Mirror and stop listening to our modern day “prophets” who tell us Rome’s false gospel is valid.  My mother, father, and my dear friend Carmela, all gone out of this world, were blessed to hear God’s truth.  But what about all those who will never hear the true Gospel because of the rampant deception that is flourishing within the Evangelical Church?  What about them?  Do we care?  Do we?

Luke 4:8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Matthew Henry

It is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God; and not only so, but him only, him and no other.

And therefore Christ will not worship Satan, nor, when he has the kingdoms of the world delivered to him by his Father, as he expects shortly to have, will he suffer any remains of the worship of the devil to continue in them.

No, it shall be perfectly rooted out and abolished, wherever his gospel comes.

He will make no composition with him.

Polytheism and idolatry must go down, as Christ’s kingdom gets up.

Men must be turned from the power of Satan unto God, from the worship of devils to the worship of the only living and true God.

This is the great Divine law that Christ will re-establish among men, and by his holy religion reduce men to the obedience of, …

That God only is to be served and worshipped; and therefore whoever set up any creature as the object of religious worship, …

though it were a saint …

or an angel, …

or the virgin Mary herself, …

they directly thwart Christ’s design, and relapse into heathenism.

PRAY FOR THE SALVATION OF THE NEW ROMAN CATHOLIC POPE FRANCIS

So true …

Isaiah 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Pray For The Salvation Of The New

Roman Catholic Pope Francis

by WF White

A Fox News article reported that the brand new Roman Catholic Pope Francis held his first Mass inside the Sistine Chapel in Rome. The new Pope, like many other Catholics is dedicated to Mary, the mother of Jesus.

“After becoming the first pontiff from the Americans, Francis had told a crowd of some 100,000 people packed in rain-soaked St. Peter’s Square just after his election that he intended to pray Friday to the Madonna “that she may watch over all of Rome.” [Pope Francis holds first Mass with cardinals inside Sistine Chapel, FoxNews.com March 14, 2013]”

As a former Roman Catholic, I also was dedicated to praying to Mary until I was truly born again of the Spirit, through faith in Jesus Christ. After I got saved, I immediately got rid of my Rosary beads, miraculous medals and scapulars and I focused my prayers to God, through Jesus Christ! I used to be very religious but I was very lost, and that is the situation that the new Pope and his followers find themselves in. Please pray for the salvation of Pope Francis, that he may repent of the idolatry that is rampant throughout the Roman Catholic system. Here is another excerpt from that Fox News article.

Like many Latin American Catholics, Francis has a particular devotion to the Virgin Mary, and his visit to the basilica was a reflection of that. He prayed before a Byzantine icon of Mary and the infant Jesus, the Protectress of the Roman People.

“He had a great devotion to this icon of Mary and every time he comes from Argentina he visits this basilica,” said one of the priests at the basilica, the Rev. Elio Montenero. “We were surprised today because he did not announce his visit.” [Pope Francis holds first Mass with cardinals inside Sistine Chapel, FoxNews.com March 14, 2013]

The Bible makes it clear that there is only ONE mediator between God and man and that is Jesus Christ.

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (1 Timothy 2:5)

When the Lord’s disciples asked him how to pray, Jesus told them to pray “Our Father” not “Our Mother”.

And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. (Luke 11:1-2)

The Bible tells us that the true believers have ONE father and he is in Heaven, not over in Vatican City in Rome. If you are following after the “Holy Father” Pope Francis you are in complete disobedience to the word of God. Jesus Christ said this:

But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. (Matthew 23:8-10)

Beware my friends because there are many wolves inside the so called Protestant Church, who are not real Christians. They are simply “tares” who are going to be exposed on judgment day. They are smooth talkers who can coax, and persuade a crowd at the drop of a hat. They are very good at what they do. They are merely patsies for Rome, and they can talk the “Christian lingo” but they are not for real. I am speaking to you as a former Roman Catholic, who was formerly in deception, just like the millions of other Catholics in the world today. Jesus Christ said this:

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Matthew 7:15)

The Jewish apostle Paul said this:

Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. (Acts 20:28-30)

Jesus Christ said this about the last days:

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. (Matthew 24:4-5)

THE IMMACULATE DECEPTION

by WF WHITE

Many have heard the term Immaculate Conception and they are under the impression that it is talking about the SINLESS Christ who was born in the womb of the Jewish Virgin Mary, but is actually a doctrine regarding the SINLESSNESS of Mary. In other words, it is a teaching that declares that the Jewish Virgin Mary was CONCEIVED without SIN, and thus the term Immaculate Conception. This is a teaching that has not been accepted by most PROTESTANT churches. The teaching of the Immaculate Conception has actually been around for a long time, but it did not become official Roman Catholic dogma until December 8, 1854. The question is this: Was Mary actually conceived without sin, or is this just the Roman Catholic interpretation? Here is an excerpt from an earlier post entitled: “Was Mary A Sinner Or The Mother Of God?”

What does the Bible teach us about Mary, the mother of Jesus? That is the question of the hour. Was Mary a sinner like the rest of us? Is Mary the mother of God? Should my focus be on Mary or on Jesus Christ?

Was Mary A Sinner?

“And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior. For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation. He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. He hath holpen (helped) his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy; As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever. And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house.” (Luke 1:46-56)

In the passage above we find Mary giving all the praise and glory to God because he regarded her low (humble) estate. Mary also rejoiced in God her Savior, and we know that only sinners need a Savior.

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:” (Romans 3:10)

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23)

Satan Uses A Demonic Counterfeit Of Mary To Deceive Souls

It is rather interesting that the Roman Catholic doctrine regarding Mary mimics actual truth regarding Jesus Christ.

The Roman Catholic teaching known as The Immaculate Conception (Mary being conceived without sin) is a DEMONIC COUNTERFEIT of the sinlessness of Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:21)

The Roman Catholic teaching of The Assumption (Mary was raised into heaven without dying) is a DEMONIC COUNTERFEIT of the actual ascension of Jesus Christ into heaven. (Luke 24:50-53, Acts 1:8-11)

The Roman Catholic teaching of Mary being the Queen of Heaven is a DEMONIC COUNTERFEIT of Jesus Christ being the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! (Deuteronomy 10:17, Psalm 136:3, 1 Timothy 6:15, Revelation 17:14, 19:16)

The Roman Catholic teaching of Mary as a mediator (mediatrix) is a DEMONIC COUNTERFEIT of Jesus Christ being the one and only mediator for mankind! (1 Timothy 2:5)

May the Lord Jesus Christ bless this word to your heart.
