antichrist Benedict XVI to Visit Another Synagogue Plus the United Nations and Not Taking the Rock of Offense With Him.

by @ 1:09 pm. Filed under Nuts on Parade

I find it laughable that Roman Catholicism proclaims apostolic succession and that it now resides with Benedict XVI. Let’s see how true Apostles of the Lord Jesus entered synagogues.

Acts 17:2-3 (New American Standard Bible)

2 And according to Paul’s custom, he went to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures,

3 explaining and giving evidence that the Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, “This Jesus whom I am proclaiming to you is the Christ.”

Please understand, I love Jewish people. I want as many of them as I do anyone else to know the truth of Jesus Christ. So I’m not afraid to set the rock of offense in front of them. I’m not afraid to set Him before anyone else, so why would I hide him from Jews? He is the only means to salvation, so of course I proclaim Him to all, even if they take offense.

Romans 9:22-33 and Romans 10:1-4 (New American Standard Bible)

22 What if God, although willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction?

23 And He did so to make known the riches of His glory upon vessels of mercy, which He prepared beforehand for glory,

24 even us, whom He also called, not from among Jews only, but also from among Gentiles.

25 As He says also in Hosea,
“I WILL CALL THOSE WHO WERE NOT MY PEOPLE, ‘MY PEOPLE,’
AND HER WHO WAS NOT BELOVED, ‘BELOVED.'”
26 “AND IT SHALL BE THAT IN THE PLACE WHERE IT WAS SAID TO THEM, ‘YOU ARE NOT MY PEOPLE,’
THERE THEY SHALL BE CALLED SONS OF THE LIVING GOD.”

27 Isaiah cries out concerning Israel, “THOUGH THE NUMBER OF THE SONS OF ISRAEL BE LIKE THE SAND OF THE SEA, IT IS THE REMNANT THAT WILL BE SAVED;

28 FOR THE LORD WILL EXECUTE HIS WORD ON THE EARTH, THOROUGHLY AND QUICKLY.”

29 And just as Isaiah foretold,
“UNLESS THE LORD OF SABAOTH HAD LEFT TO US A POSTERITY,
WE WOULD HAVE BECOME LIKE SODOM, AND WOULD HAVE RESEMBLED GOMORRAH.”

30 What shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, attained righteousness, even the righteousness which is by faith;

31 but Israel, pursuing a law of righteousness, did not arrive at that law.

32 Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as though it were by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone,

33 just as it is written,
“BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION A STONE OF STUMBLING AND A ROCK OF OFFENSE,
AND HE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.”

1 Brethren, my heart’s desire and my prayer to God for them is for their salvation.

2 For I testify about them that they have a zeal for God, but not in accordance with knowledge.

3 For not knowing about God’s righteousness and seeking to establish their own, they did not subject themselves to the righteousness of God.

4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

True Apostles of the Lord Jesus ALWAYS kept the Rock of Offense out in the open. They never hid their knowledge of Him as Christ. For it they were persecuted till death, but they always proclaimed His Name and the message of salvation through Him.

Acts 4:12 (New American Standard Bible)

12 “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”

For a moment Benedict noted Jesus in regards to the Jews, but as I’ve mentioned previously, he does it with much double talk. So he mentioned Jews should recognize Jesus in a prayer, Jews got offended, what does Benedict do? Does he hold to the Rock of Offense and go to the synagogue like Paul to proclaim the name of the Lord Jesus? No, because Benedict is an antichrist. He makes moves for the sake of personal glory. So he’s going to a synagogue once again and will not have the Rock of Offense with him, because the Rock of Offense is not with him.

Papal Visit to Temple May Defuse `Quarrel’ With Jews

April 18 (Bloomberg) — Pope Benedict XVI, who angered Jewish groups this year when he revised a Good Friday prayer to include a call for Jews to recognize Jesus, will make the first trip by a pontiff to a U.S. synagogue today in New York.

After a speech to the United Nations, Benedict is scheduled to make a 20-minute visit to the Park East Synagogue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The temple is led by Rabbi Arthur Schneier, a native of Austria who lived under Nazi occupation in Budapest during World War II. The visit comes the day before the Jewish holiday of Passover.

“The environment in which he’s coming to the U.S. right now is one in which there’s been a little bit of a quarrel,” said Lawrence H. Schiffman, a professor of Hebrew and Judaic Studies at New York University. “To make that special visit is intentional to signal his view that that quarrel should not be considered to be more than that.”

The pope, who was forced to join the Hitler Youth as a boy in Germany, has been reaching out to Jews around the world since taking office three years ago. He went to a synagogue in Cologne in 2005, the second such visit by a pope worldwide; toured the former death camp Auschwitz in 2006; and met with Jewish leaders in Washington yesterday.

“Particularly on the eve of Passover, it’s a message of goodwill to the Jewish community, the largest outside of Israel,” Schneier said in an interview. “We’re blessed in this country that Catholics and Jews, and for that matter all denominations, have learned how to live together.”

`Sign of Respect’

Rabbi Joel H. Meyers, executive vice president of the New York-based Rabbinical Assembly, a group of conservative Jewish clergy, said the Good Friday prayer debate isn’t likely to be discussed during the visit to Park East.

“The visit to the synagogue is a tribute to the relationship that exists between the work that Rabbi Schneier has done in interfaith relations and the Vatican,” Meyers, who met with the pontiff in Washington yesterday, said in a telephone interview. “It’s really a sign of respect and caring.”

February’s Good Friday prayer revision, to be used in the Latin Mass, called on Jews to recognize Jesus as “the savior of all men.” The grand rabbi of Rome, Riccardo Di Segni, said the prayer “constitutes an obstacle to the continuation of dialogue between Jews and Christians,” Agence France-Presse reported.

Basically it’s like this, Jews who reject Jesus as the Christ are telling Benedict, that if he keeps telling them they should accept Jesus than there will be relationship issues. So Benedict being an antichrist does not want to disturb any “interfaith relations” and is entering synagogues not to reason with Jews from the scriptures, but rather to keep his mouth shut regarding the Rock of Offense, Jesus Christ. To show he’ll do anything with anyone, including remain closed mouthed with people who deny Christ and told him he better shut up.

Benedict’s actions are not at all on par with the true Apostles of the Lord Jesus.

Acts 4:18-31 (New American Standard Bible)

18 And when they had summoned them, they commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus.

19 But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to give heed to you rather than to God, you be the judge;

20 for we cannot stop speaking about what we have seen and heard.”

21 When they had threatened them further, they let them go (finding no basis on which to punish them) on account of the people, because they were all glorifying God for what had happened;

22 for the man was more than forty years old on whom this miracle of healing had been performed.

23 When they had been released, they went to their own companions and reported all that the chief priests and the elders had said to them.

24 And when they heard this, they lifted their voices to God with one accord and said, “O Lord, it is You who MADE THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH AND THE SEA, AND ALL THAT IS IN THEM,

25 who by the Holy Spirit, through the mouth of our father David Your servant, said,
‘WHY DID THE GENTILES RAGE,
AND THE PEOPLES DEVISE FUTILE THINGS?
26 ‘THE KINGS OF THE EARTH TOOK THEIR STAND,
AND THE RULERS WERE GATHERED TOGETHER
AGAINST THE LORD AND AGAINST HIS CHRIST.’

27 “For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel,

28 to do whatever Your hand and Your purpose predestined to occur.

29 “And now, Lord, take note of their threats, and grant that Your bond-servants may speak Your word with all confidence,

30 while You extend Your hand to heal, and signs and wonders take place through the name of Your holy servant Jesus.”

31 And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness.

Notice, true Apostles of the Lord Jesus not only refused to ever halt proclaiming the name of Jesus Christ before the Jews, they went a step further, they and other saints prayed for confidence, the Holy Spirit filled them and they spoke the word of God with boldness. The Apostles had continual signs and wonders and REFUSED TO SHUT THEIR MOUTHS WHEN IN THE PRESENCE OF JEWS ABOUT JESUS BEING THE CHRIST! No, never would a true Apostle of the Lord Jesus take center stage at a synagogue and not preach Jesus in the name of “interfaith relations”. But false apostle antichrist Benedict XVI continually keeps his mouth closed in the presence of Jews, in their synagogues. Proving Benedict is every bit the false apostle I’ve been saying that he is.

Benedict is speaking with the UN General Assembly this morning. Do you think he proclaimed to them that faith in Jesus is the hope for all mankind? Do you think the real Apostles would have stood before a world body and said anything other than Jesus and Him crucified?

Also from the article:


Benedict will also hold an ecumenical service with a group including about 250 national and local Protestant and Orthodox church leaders at St. Joseph’s Church in the Yorkville section of Manhattan tonight.

Fellowship with the antichrst.

Tomorrow, to celebrate the third anniversary of his election as pope, Benedict will conduct Mass at St. Patrick’s, then travel in a motorcade in the bulletproof-glass-enclosed “Popemobile.” He’ll meet later with disabled children and students at St. Joseph’s Seminary Chapel in Yonkers.

More celebration of himself. All that Matthew 23 speaks against. And another abomination known as Roman Catholic “mass”.

On April 20, Benedict will first visit Ground Zero. At the former site of the World Trade Center, destroyed in the Sept. 11 terror attacks, he’ll light a candle, offer a prayer and sprinkle the ground with holy water before blessing about 20 guests selected by lottery, including relatives of the victims. The pontiff will give a Mass to more than 60,000 people at Yankee Stadium before heading back to Rome.

Of course “holy water” is not anywhere in the Bible. Jesus provides the Living Water, John 4:10, but nobody will be saved by the idol water acts of antichrist Benedict.

The false apostle, false christ, antichrist Benedict XVI has the world fawning over him. Because he claims to be Christian clergy, but won’t proclaim the Rock of Offense, except when politically convenient, to stir up his base. The man is a fraud, I only pray more come to realize it.

    Transcript of the antichrist’s address to the United Nations: Papal Visit 2008: Transcript Of Benedict’s Address To U.N. General Assembly; U.N. Staff.

    No mention of them NEEDING salvation through Jesus Christ. No mention of the only way the world has any hope beyond certain doom coming through Jesus Christ. He said Jesus Christ once in saying:


    In my recent Encyclical, Spe Salvi, I indicated that “every generation has the task of engaging anew in the arduous search for the right way to order human affairs” (no. 25). For Christians, this task is motivated by the hope drawn from the saving work of Jesus Christ. That is why the Church is happy to be associated with the activity of this distinguished Organization, charged with the responsibility of promoting peace and good will throughout the earth. Dear Friends, I thank you for this opportunity to address you today, and I promise you of the support of my prayers as you pursue your noble task.

    Basically he says “for Christians” (which he is not), there is hope to order human affairs through the saving work of Jesus Christ. Notice he does not say the rest of the world needs Jesus (the Jesus he does not really have) or all is doomed for those without Christ. Basically he’s saying Christ denying groups can go their own way about it and he is happy to work together under the UN banner with them all. He’s happy his cult is working with the UN to do things other than spread the message of salvation through Jesus Christ.

    Some sprinkles of talk about human rights and freedom to worship “God”, but he’s acting like all religions are on equal footing. He said:


    The activity of the United Nations in recent years has ensured that public debate gives space to viewpoints inspired by a religious vision in all its dimensions, including ritual, worship, education, dissemination of information and the freedom to profess and choose religion.

    He enjoys the work of the United Nations being influenced by all religions, of course he does, because he’s not telling them Jesus is their only hope!

    I’m not at all against individual freedom to choose regarding religion. I’m not for any religious persecution either. However, in all his secular humanistic gobbledygook, Benedict did not proclaim Jesus as the ONLY WAY. So he failed to proclaim the only hope the UN has when he had their full attention. Imagine if Jesus was preached to the entire world body…didn’t happen with Benedict!

    IC: Another link to what you were talking about. Pope Benedict sounds like he supports the anti-Christ “one world government” idea.

    He certainly is laying the road for the Anti-christ to walk in on, that’s for certain.

  4. IndependentConservative Says:

    So on what is the REAL GOOD FRIDAY. The Lord Jesus Christ was crucified on the Friday prior to Passover. antichrist Benedict entered a Jewish Jesus Christ denying synagogue. What did he say to those builders who still reject the stone that is now the chief cornerstone? Acts 4? Acts 2? Nothing resembling what any Apostle of the Lord Jesus ever said.

    Pope Makes First Visit to a U.S. Synagogue


    At 5:29 p.m., the pope stood, put on his eyeglasses and was presented by Rabbi Schneier with a silver seder plate designed by Menahen Ben Ari Berman, a Jerusalem artist. The pope stood behind a lectern in front of the bimah and spoke, hewing without exception to a brief text that had been distributed to journalists on an embargoed basis beforehand:

    Dear Friends, Shalom! It is with joy that I come here, just a few hours before the celebration of your Pesah, to express my respect and esteem for the Jewish community in New York City. The proximity of this place of worship to my residence gives me the opportunity to greet some of you today. I find it moving to recall that Jesus, as a young boy, heard the words of Scripture and prayed in a place such as this. I thank Rabbi Schneier for his words of welcome and I particularly appreciate your kind gift, the spring flowers and the lovely song that the children sang for me. I know that the Jewish community make a valuable contribution to the life of the city, and I encourage all of you to continue building bridges of friendship with all the many different ethnic and religious groups present in your neighborhood. I assure you most especially of my closeness at this time, as you prepare to celebrate the great deeds of the Almighty, and to sing the praises of Him who has worked such wonders for his people. I would ask those of you who are present to pass on my greetings and good wishes to all the members of the Jewish community. Blessed be the name of the Lord!

    He exchanged more gifts with members of the synagogue, presenting them with the replica of a Jewish medieval legal manuscript in the Vatican library circa 1435. In return, he was given a haggadah, or Passover prayer book, and a box of matzo. Then the pope posed for photographs with Rabbi Schneier and other prominent Jews in attendance.

    As I said, the Rock of Offense was not with him and he has boldly slapped the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus under his feet!

    Hi. I’ve been reading through a few of your posts for a few days and have been ITCHING to comment…but I was concerned about some bot picking up my e-mail address.

    But I can’t keep it in anymore 🙂

    I work in the mainstream media and, lucky me, I got the Pope beat at work. Which means I’m pretty much throwing up in my mouth for most of the day watching what seems like the whole world fawning over this man traipsing across the U.S. like he’s some kind of benevolent, humble, holy and even darn near divine being.

    Bush practically fell at his feet. Some photogs and desk anchors covering the event even seem to be really enjoying themselves (I came by a photo on the wire today of the pope’s white garments being caught in the glare of the sun…imagine how ‘shiningly white’ and even much more holier he looked then!).

    The kids at that Catholic university that he visited in D.C. were screaming like it was Christ Jesus coming through… and the LORD could barely find a fan in His own hometown when He was here.

    And at the U.N…. people seemed so ecstatic (even NY Police Commissioner Kelly) to just stand next to this weird looking man and shake his hand…like there’s something special about being granted an audience with the beast.

    It’s just too much…and I cannot understand it. This man is treated like god on earth…people bow before him, kiss his ring, put on his reading glasses for him… he sits on a throne… wears the most ridiculous clothes (which really match the wardrobe of the whore of Babylon in the Holy Bible, by the way) and I really do not understand why popes walk around with a dead Jesus strung up on a cross… those things look ghastly to me…and isn’t Christ risen?

    And it’s no coincidence that UK PM Brown is here at the same time…and that Brown met with McCain, Clinton and Obama…how much you want to bet the pope meets with them, too before he leaves. Something is rotten in the state of Denmark, folks.

    Anyway, you’ve got a wealth of information on here that’s gonna take me forever to read… and don’t be surprised if you see, like, 30 comments from me all over your site soon.

    GOD Bless and keep writing.

    Peace,

    Hi LaVrai, nobody will get your e-mail address, unless they can break into my blog, which is continually updated with the latest for this blog platform.

    They show what they treat as a figure of Christ on the cross, because they enjoy crucifying Him in effigy, over and over again. If you read about their “mass” you will better understand. Also if you see some of the other related posts I’ve recommended for review you’ll see more.

    I’ve had time to look over your blog briefly yesterday and it looks like you’re doing some good work.

  7. SteelGator Says:

    LaVrai:
    Very interesting blog. I read your statement of faith. Do you follow Arminism? Just curious as you said you believe some believers can lose their faith.

    I look forward to conversing with you in the future.

  8. LaVrai.COM Says:

    Hi, SteelGator. I will have to read up on that particluar -ism, as I don’t really use any other label other than ‘Christian,’ ‘child of GOD,’ ‘humble servant,’ things like that 🙂

    I understand that there are many divisions within the Church and some particular sects can be dangerous because of the ideology and Biblical interpretations they hold, but, honestly, that is no concern of mine (as yet, I suppose). If you have found true salvation, then we can chat (even if you haven’t)…if you believe in a pre-trib or post-trib or mid-trib rapture…. I don’t really care. We will all learn the truth eventually…it’s just how we react once the truth is revealed. However, if you believe the rapture has already happened, then there is bound to be some flaw in your ideology since there’s no doubt the rapture will occur in this generation.

    Anyway, take it easy, SteelGator.

  9. IndependentConservative Says:

    LaVrai.COM, I don’t see a place on your blog where people can contact you to speak about things outside of post comments. SteelGator is speaking of something that is not about resurrection, but rather another matter that certainly is not fitting for this thread. It is a discussion that I don’t feel is “essential” to someone understanding, although it is a teaching that goes totally against many Roman Catholic teachings.

    It would be good if you and SteelGator could discuss these things via private contact.

  10. IndependentConservative Says:

    LaVrai.COM, here are some posts and videos that detail what SteelGator is speaking about.

    2 Peter 3:9 Refutes Universal Salvation

    It is very much beyond the mere basics of Christian teaching as God had Paul mention in 1 Corinthians 2:6-7, but could not really detail with them (the Corinthian church) given their immaturity in the faith. He did detail it with the saints at Ephesus in Ephesians 1.

    But these are things best discussed in some of those other threads rather than this one.

  11. SteelGator Says:

    In regard to the Pope, it is amazing that people continue to follow this false prophet. Throughout the years, the Catholic church has done evil and upheld corruption from the highest levels on down. Examples are as follows:

    1. Lying to their parishioners and telling them that there is a purgatory. They did this to sell indulgencies to their mindless and scared followers. The Catholic church has made billions off this utter lie.

    2. It has been documented numerous times, the support that Catholic church received from the Nazi government. Not only did the Catholic (not all Catholics mind you because many were killed in the holocaust) leadership look the other way when trains packed full of people were sent to concentration camps, they also, profited from the Nazi regime. The Nazis confiscated the homes, goods and fortunes of Jews, gypsies, born again Christians, and many others. Somehow much of this fortune ended up in the coffers of the Catholic Church.

    3. The Catholic church is very anti-Semitic. They have been from their inception. The Catholic church sees non Catholics as apostates that need to be converted or gotten rid of. The Catholic church has been on the side of any government that has been anti-Israel.

    4. The priest molestation cases. Catholics and non – Catholics alike knew this evil was being perpetrated. My father, a former alter boy, (now a born again Christian) even though he never directly knew anyone that had been abused, always heard the jokes that people said about the priests. The joke in many Italian families was out of the 5-6 sons, one might turn out gay. If he does, send him to the priesthood. The Vatican knew about this abuse. They just chose to look the other way.

    These are just four examples of the corruption within the Cult of Mary. It is sad that so many good people have been led astray by this cult.
