The Religious section of the News used to tell of services provided and charitable deeds of congregants. But now, nothing but scandal, war stories, child abuse/rape, suicide bombings, financial embezzlement, money laundering, idolatry, LGBT parades, protests, disputes, intolerance, discrimination, deception, death and the general ‘moral failure’ of the leaders of all religious institutions. None do good, no not one!
The Wages of Sin…
“Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” Rom 1:32
Many articles begin by pointing out that the Vatican is “reeling” from all the scandalous behavior being revealed by their clergy in years past. Deception: The hierarchy has said all along they didn’t know anything about it, but the fact is that it has been common knowledge among the hierarchy who has covered it all up and shuffled pedophile priests around the globe. You can only sweep so much under the carpet before the lumps become visible or you can smell the stink. Now stories of the highly placed Theodore Cardinal McCarrick’s (of Washington DC) sexual abuse is “sending waves of horror through the Church.” The pope knew all about it! He happens to be a fellow Jesuit with the pope who once said proudly that his colleagues in the church are “word-smiths.” What did he mean by that?
This Week’s Prophecy Weekly is dominated by two things God hates: violence and false prophets. These topics are covered because God destroyed the earth the first time due to violence. He will destroy the earth the second time for the same reason. God turned away from His people because they followed false prophets or priests instead of Him. Nothing has changed, yet.
Under the topic of violence, the US Military Budget is nearing $1 Trillion dollars and Trump is initiating a “Space Force”. Russia is preparing for war and countries around the world continue to “improve” their militaries.
“And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth…The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.” Genesis 6: 12-13
Under the topic of false prophets, the Catholic Church has had the first Cardinal outed for credible abuse claims. In addition, they are in the news this week for active scandals in Pennsylvania, Kansas, Louisiana, New York, Guam, England, Chile, Australia, New Zealand and India.
“You shall know them by their fruits… Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.” Matthew 7:16-18
Be sure to click on each topic to see where God has spoken of these events long ago!
This week’s Prophecy Weekly highlights hypocrisy within the US Government and the Catholic Church.
Starting with the US Government, much pomp and circumstance were made out of the Trump meeting with the NK leader Kim. A video created for the meeting by the National Security Council laid out a choice for Kim, War or “Financial Prosperity”, in other words, debt. Remember the borrower is the servant to the lender (Proverbs 22:7), which the US is all too familiar with. US personal and corporate debt is rising to all-time new levels, while economic inequality continues to rise. War and Violence are against God. Neither of these options is a good choice!
The government also decided to dabble in the Bible by justifying their practice of separating children and parents at the border with Romans 13. Roman’s 13 has nothing to do with the US government! Several representatives from the Catholic Church spoke up to defend the separation practice. Meanwhile, Ireland investigates the Catholic Church’s illegal adoption practices which are exactly the same thing, separating children from their parents. Hypocrisy! On a positive note, Prosecutors raided Catholic Church offices in Chile while looking into the abuse scandal. More countries should take note, and do the same to expose these wolves in sheep’s clothing!
This week’s Prophecy Weekly is dominated by violence, protests and destruction from volcanic eruptions. The Israel-Gaza conflict continues with an exchange of fire from both sides. There is NO Peace in that Israel! Protests against governments occurred in Argentina, Nicaragua, Jordana and others. The seas and the waves are roaring! In the US a new study identified a sharp rise in suicide rates. People have lost hope and their leaders only continue to lead them into more wars, debt and depression. It is time to turn to God!
The ballooning child abuse scandals continue to expose false prophets. Current scandals cover the globe and include the following countries and states:
This week’s Prophecy Weekly covers those “that appear righteous, yet are full of iniquity”. “Pope” Francis condemned the “culture of abuse and cover-up” in a letter he wrote to the Catholic Bishops in Chile. Francis is just giving the world lip service. At the same time, two archdioceses in Minnesota settled with 450 abuse victims for $210 Million dollars this week. Meanwhile, in Australia, the Catholic church opted into a redress scheme. The Church’s liabilities to abuse victims has been estimated at over a billion dollars.
In the UK, the next Catholic scandal to come to light is the illegal adoption practices of Catholic institutions. The alarms are sounding! An institution associated with schools and adoption agencies has admitted to a “culture of abuse and cover-up”. The most vulnerable are in the hands of the criminals. In other words, the fox is watching the hen house! These crimes do not stop in Chile. They are occurring worldwide and must be stopped!
“…you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.” Matthew 23:28
In other news, extreme weather has caused flooding in Maryland, a drought in Southwest US and killed 50 in India. The Volcano in Hawaii continues to erupt.
Meanwhile, protests against governments are occurring in Warsaw, Nicaragua and Argentina, just to highlight a few. These protests ARE the seas and the waves roaring spoken of in God’s Word. They continue to get worse and expose governments for oppressive practices throughout the world!
“And there shall be… upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring (protests).” Luke 21:25
This week’s Prophecy Weekly includes coverage of the vote in Ireland to lift the ban on abortions. The Catholic Church has put burdens of guilt on millions by having them believe that abortion is murder. It is not! Click on the information box regarding the vote in Ireland to learn more. This is just one more way these false prophets have deceived many!
“For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.” Matthew 23:4
In other news, Sweden is preparing its citizens for war and protests are occurring in Brazil, Morocco and France.
This week’s Prophecy Weekly is marred with violence and deceptions. In the US, the 22nd school shooting of the year occurred. This brings the number of deaths to school children to greater than those in the military. Neither should happen! At the same time, the US pushed forward with the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, which coincided with 59 Palestinian protestor deaths by Israeli forces. The UN is pushing to open a war crime investigation which the US opposes. There is no peace in Jerusalem!
“The Prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, says the Lord.” Ezekiel 13:16
Meanwhile, the Pope hosted 34 Bishops from Chile. They all offered their resignations as fallout for the scandal against the church. Upon the initial reports of abuse by the victims, there were no offers of resignation. This is just a publicity stunt! What is the true priority here?
This week’s Prophecy Weekly is again dominated by false prophets having their crimes exposed. Jesus warned, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” – Matthew 7:15. It should be abundantly clear who he was talking about! The abuse scandals are in the news this week in the following locations:
US – Midwest
Catholic organizations are known for abusing children worldwide, but have a front row seat in the US government. A Catholic Jesuit has been reinstated as the US House Chaplain. What kind of influence can he have?
There are also “wars and rumors of wars” with conflicts in Syria, Afghanistan and Africa. God destroyed the earth the first time because of violence, and no one has learned from this history!
Patrick Conroy, a Jesuit Catholic, has been sworn back into office this week as the US House Chaplain after a couple of turbulent weeks. Paul Ryan met significant criticism from the Catholic members of Congress after asking for Conroy’s resignation in April. Initially, Conroy conceded and he turned in a resignation letter. Conroy rescinded his letter last week after receiving significant support from Nancy Pelosi and others. His on-again, off-again position in this role has brought the House Chaplain role to the front pages. What is this role all about and who is Patrick Conroy? The findings are alarming and full of hypocrisy!
In this week’s Prophecy Weekly several states and one country are starting the process of eliminating the statute of limitations placed on sexual abuse lawsuits. Meanwhile, Francis told three victims that he was part of the problem and Cardinal Pell will face two abuse trials. Things are heating up for these false prophets!
The world is also heating up with a new worldwide temperature high set for the month of April in Pakistan. Hawaii is rumbling with volcanic activity and deadly storms have killed over 100 in India. The Afghanistan War continues in its 17th year with over 36 killed this week. Remember, God destroyed the earth the first time due to violence!
