The Zionist pope.
As Cardinal, Francis advanced ‘ecumenism’ with the Jews and went into their synagogue at Hanukkah and lighted the menorah, which is a multi branched candelabra, used in the religious rituals of Judaism. (In the 19th century the menorah was adopted as the symbol of the Zionists, and in the 20th century it became the official emblem of the state of Israel in the 20th century). One of the features of the menorah is that it has a ‘shammash’ or a “servant” light, which is used for kindling the other lights. Hanukkah is a Jewish festival that begins in December, around Christmas time, and is celebrated for eight days and reaffirms the ideals of Judaism and commemorates in particular the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem by the lighting of candles on each day of the festival. The word Hanukkah in Hebrew also means “education,” and rabbis and Jewish educators try to instill in their congregants and students the notion that the holiday celebrates Jewish strengths, perseverance, and continuity.
This has two important aspects which are direct heresy in Catholicism. First, Jesus said “I am the Light of the world” (Jn 8:12; 9:5), and at the Last Supper He said: “This is My Blood of the New Testament, which shall be shed for many” (Mk 14:24). By going back to the Old Testament rituals, Jesus Christ is being denied by Francis and those who encourage Judaism in any form.
Jesus said of the temple that ‘there shall not be left here a stone upon a stone that shall not be destroyed,’ then why does the ‘cardinal’ even consider entering into that which Jesus has condemned?
“We have such an High Priest Who is set on the right hand of the Throne of Majesty in the heavens, a Minister of the holies and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord hath pitched, and not man…Now in saying a new, He hath made the former old. And that which decays and grows old is near its end…It is necessary therefore that the patterns of heavenly things should be cleansed with these: but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these” (Hb 8:1,2,13; 9:23).
In his first official act upon being elected pope, Francis contacted the chief rabbi of Rome. Satan wants to sit in the Chair of Peter! (2Th 2:4).
The Associated Press reported on March 15, 2013 (AP): “Like his predecessor, Pope Francis reached out to Rome’s Jewish community at the very start of his pontificate, pledging to continue to strengthen the increasingly close ties between Catholics and Jews. Just hours after he was elected the first Latin American pope in history, Francis sent a letter to Rome’s chief Rabbi Riccardo di Segni, saying he hoped to “contribute to the progress that relations between Jews and Catholics” have seen since the 1962-1965 Second Vatican Council.”
It needs to be said that the Jews are not the center of the universe.
Jesus Christ, the King of the Jews, is the center of the universe.
