The issue of climate change has risen to an unprecedented level of national and international consciousness. One is forced to ask, “Is this simply accidental or is it being craftily planned and orchestrated as part of, or perhaps central to, a broader hidden agenda?”
Donald J. Boudreaux, a professor of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University remarked, “Any clear-eyed examination of daily capitalist reality reveals that the environment within which each of us lives today is far more sanitary, safe, and pleasant – far less polluted – than was the daily environment of our pre-industrial ancestors. This fact doesn’t mean that climate change and other alleged environmental problems aren’t real or worth trying to mitigate”.
However, under close examination, one can safely assume that the climate change issue is being used to promote and accelerate a much focused, and most likely sinister agenda. But what agenda and by whom? The answer to that rather poignant question may not be readily available to the masses who are being unwittingly manipulated to bring about a universal state of affairs that very few are aware of. Nevertheless, there is an answer.
The year was 2015. On September 24th of that year, Pope Francis released his long awaited, controversial, and much debated encyclical on the environment, Laudato SI’. The central issues he addressed is the threat of global warming to the environment and its impact on the poor, the family, and the world’s economy. Undergirding his thesis is humanity’s need to protect and take care of creation. Before its ‘official’ release, the world was presented with a ‘leaked’ version that accelerated discussions on the issue. Religionists, politicians, and scientists were offering their take on the impact of Francis’ encyclical on the climate change debate.
Jeb Bush, Roman Catholic and then recently declared Republican candidate for the presidency, disagreed with his pope’s position on climate change. He said, “I hope I’m not going to get castigated for saying this by my priest back home…religion ought to be about making us better as people and less about things that end up getting into the political realm. Those words are eerily reminiscent of the late John F. Kennedy’s declaration to a gathering of Protestant ministers in Houston, Texas in September, 1960. He sought to convince the electorate that as a Roman Catholic, he will not run the country according to the teachings of his church; but rather on the basis of the country’s constitution. Three years later he was cruelly assassinated in Dallas, Texas before the on-looking world.
Other declared Republican candidates had sounded similar sentiments. Rick Santorum, also Roman Catholic, shared his thoughts on Francis’ encyclical. He pleaded with his pontiff, “leave science to the scientists”. Perhaps Bush, Santorum and the rest of the world need to be reminded that Francis, the head of the Papacy, is not merely a religious leader; but also a political head of state ruling over more than one billion citizens in every crevice on planet earth. The American ideal of separation of church and state has zero value in that realm. This is the perspective from which Francis operates. Wake up America.
On the other side of the political divide, former Vice President, now President, a staunch Roman Catholic, Joseph Biden, certainly agreed with his pope on climate change. Invoking Francis’ encyclical at a clean air conference at the White House, Biden stated, “Usually encyclicals are only issued on what the church thinks are incredibly important initiatives…this doesn’t only have a moral component to it, it has a security component to it, as well as it has an economic component to it”. Biden’s view underscores the broad implications of Francis’ letter. It, in essence, is about more than protecting the environment and caring for the poor and disenfranchised; but rather yet another of Francis’ tactics in his church’s long- standing strategy to change the political climate of the world and rule over it as they believe that they are entitled to. As president, Biden is perfectly positioned to help his pope carry out his agenda on Climate Change. Indeed, he has committed to just that.
Just recently, Augusto Zampini, the Director of the Vatican’s Development and Faith Commission at the Dicastery for Integral Human Development announced that on May 25, 2021 the Vatican will “launch the Laudato Si’ action plan” that will create “a massive movement of families, parishes, schools and universities, health centers and hospitals, business and governments” to combat climate change. Vatican official Zampini did not mention what the seven resolutions of Laudato Si’ are. He said the plan is “very ambitious” and “spectacular.” Among other things, the May 25th announcement is part of the world wide 5th year celebration of Laudato Si’.
In his book, Keys of this Blood, Malachi Martin, the late Jesuit scholar and expert commentator on the operations and aims of the Papacy, revealed that there was a three-way struggle for world domination. He identified the players in that competition as Communism, Globalism (Capitalism), and Catholicism. Since the publication of his book in 1990, one of those competitors has been effectively neutralized. Time Magazine’s cover headline glared: “HOLY ALLIANCE… how Reagan and the pope conspired to assist Poland’s solidarity movement and hasten the demise of Communism” (Time, February 24, 1992).
The ensuing article stated, “On June 7, 1982, Reagan and John Paul met for fifty minutes at the Vatican. During that conversation, the plot was hatched to eliminate communism. In that meeting, Reagan and the Pope agreed to undertake a clandestine campaign to hasten the dissolution of the communist regime, declares Richard Allen, Reagan’s first National Security adviser, ‘This was one of the great secret alliances of all time” (Time Magazine, February 24, 1992, page 28).
There are now two remaining players in that competition for world domination, Catholicism and Globalism fuelled by Capitalist America. Malachi Martin concluded, “That being the case, it would appear inescapable that their competition will end up in confrontation. It is not too much to say in fact, that the chosen purpose of John Paul’s Pontificate, the engine that drives his papal grand policy and that determines his day-to-day, year-to-year strategies is to be the victor in that competition, well underway” (Keys of this Blood, page 15).
John Paul II has now passed off the scene, but the papacy’s objective, as evidenced by Francis’ political and religious maneuverings, remains the same. The sad commentary is that whilst this phenomenon is well understood by the agents of Rome, it is totally oblivious to most Americans, most of our leaders included. Francis continues to relentlessly wage the battle for Papal domination, attacking the unsuspecting competition from within.
His encyclical on climate change is simply one giant step in that direction. His spectacular address to the joint session of Congress on September 24, 2015, further decrying the evils of capitalism, was yet another. Since then, Francis has had phenomenal success in bringing together the nations of the world, the major multinational corporations, the international development banks and all mainstream religions into his plan for climate change and world peace.
As Catholicism, with Francis at the helm, is being strengthened and widely perceived as good for humanity’s wellbeing; America, the engine that drives Globalism, is becoming weaker and weaker through the attacks on the foundational principles of her constitution, primarily the concept of separation of church and state. What we are experiencing in America today is a rather rapid, though stealthy, implementation of Papal rule built upon its foundational tenet of unification of church and state. Popery is antagonistic to the American system of justice and liberty for all. The Constitution of the United States guarantees liberty of conscience. Nothing is dearer or more fundamental. Pope Pius IX, in his Encyclical Letter of August 15, 1854, made a frontal attack on that most precious American ideal. He declared, “The absurd and erroneous doctrines or ravings in defense of liberty of conscience are a most pestilential error–a pest, of all others, most to be dreaded in a state”.
The resurgence, growth, and eventual domination of America by the papacy began in earnest with the election of Pope Pius XI in 1922. In the classic, Rome Stoops to Conquer, by a renowned Jesuit scholar, we discover the following: “Pius is well aware that the Catholic Church can never hope again to dominate the civilized world until America kneels, beaten and penitent at her feet…In teaching American Catholics this new phase of Catholicism, this active phase, and in sanctifying it with his blessings, Pius XI rendered inevitable many significant changes in the life course of this nation” ( Rome Stoops To Conquer, E. Boyd Barrett, page 4).
The new phase here referred to is an aggressive, well defined and organized plan to control all aspects of American life. Perusing the American landscape today, no one can doubt that Pius’ vision and initiatives to make America Catholic have been resoundingly successful. Catholicism, through her dedicated sons and daughters, are in control of the media, business, government, the judiciary, politics, and religion. So successful is Rome’s plan for America that every president, at least since Ronald Reagan, has sought the advice and support of the Roman Papacy in formalizing and executing both their domestic and foreign policies.
Pius’ aim for America was, and still is the centerpiece of the Vatican’s strategy for world domination. Professor E. Boyd Bartlett continued, “He would have us, he needs us; he means to have us. He believes that the destiny of the church will be fulfilled in America and that with the spiritual conquest of America, the world dominion of the church will be regained” (ibid., 259).
And what will follow the papacy’s spiritual conquest of America? The late Dr. John W. Robbins, a Presbyterian minister and authority on Roman Catholicism, made this eye opening assertion, “The Roman church/state is a hybrid, a monster of ecclesiastical and political power. Its political thought is totalitarian and whenever it has had the opportunity to apply its principles, the result has been bloody repression. If during the last 30 years it has softened its assertions of full, supreme and irresponsible power and has murdered fewer people than before; such changes of behavior are not due to a change in its ideas but to a change in circumstances… it is only when the Roman church/state faced public opinion that disapproved of church/state sanctioned murder, that it slowed its persecutions and attempted to speak with a voice less bloodthirsty. The Roman church/state in the 20th century, however, is an institution recovering from a deadly wound. If and when it regains its full power and authority, it will impose a regime more sinister than any the planet has ever seen” (Ecclesiastical Megalomania, Dr. John W. Robbins, page 195). Considering its history of the Dark Ages, when tens of millions who disagreed with her policies were mercilessly slaughtered, Professor Robbins’ assertion must not be taken lightly.
Francis continually insists that the panacea for the world’s problems rests with his church’s version of morality and spirituality, at the very foundation of which is Sunday sacredness. The Associated Press recently reported, “Pope Francis lamented the abandoning of the traditionally Christian practice of not working on Sundays, saying it has a negative impact on families and friendships”. He says that spending Sundays with family and friends is an ‘ethical choice’ for faithful and unfaithful alike…preserving the special character of Sunday as the Lord’s Day — even civilly where possible.”
His predecessor, Benedict XI asserted, “At a time when creation seems to be endangered in so many ways through human activity, we should consciously accept this dimension of Sunday, too…It is necessary to promote reflection and efforts at reconciling the demands and the periods of work with those of the family and to recover the true meaning of the feast, especially on Sunday, the weekly Easter, the day of the lord, and the day of man, the day of the family, of the community, and of solidarity” (Zenith.org, Sept. 26 2010). A leading church publication of its time stated, “Sunday is our mark of authority…the church is above the Bible, and the transference of Sabbath is proof of that fact (Catholic Record, Sept 1, 1923).
Despite the differing opinions on Francis’ position on climate change, one thing is for sure – almost all (Revelation 13:8) are coming together on Rome’s proposition for Sunday sacredness, ostensibly to save not only the environment and take care of creation, but also to strengthen the family, and by extension, society as a whole. Sunday sacredness will bridge the divides across political, socio-economic and religious lines on climate change.
The very aggressive, devout Roman Catholic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York has introduced her rather bold initiative on climate change, Green New Deal, to the nation. Her proposal is completely in line with her church’s agenda on the climate issue, calling for worker equity and rest as part of the solution to the problem. Though not explicitly calling for Sunday sacredness, the implication is clear.
Pharrell Williams, internationally renowned entertainer and recording artist, has dedicated his life to doing what he can to make the world a better place. And that is a good thing indeed. In that effort he is being used to advance the papacy’s agenda of Sunday sacredness, a well-orchestrated frontal attack on the word of God. He has spoken at the United Nations, a major player promoting the call for Sunday sacredness to help heal the environment and impact climate change.
Another unwitting, very influential player in the Pope’s agenda to replace God’s Holy Sabbath day with Sunday sacredness is 17- year old Greta Thunberg. Her recent meeting with Francis added impetus to her call for governments and individuals to take swift, decisive action on climate change.
More recently, cultural entertainment icon, Kanye West, joined the choir calling for Sunday sacredness with his newly released album, Jesus is King. His initiation of his popularly acclaimed Sunday Services is unwittingly drawing millions into the papal deadly net in opposition to Creator God.
These and other initiatives, small and large, are in complete and perfect harmony with the papacy’s plan for world domination and the institution of Sunday sacredness. Pope Francis could not be more succinct when he admonished, “On Sunday, our participation in the Eucharist has special importance. Sunday, like the Jewish Sabbath, is meant to be a day which heals our relationships with God, with ourselves, with others and with the world. Sunday is the day of the Resurrection, the “first day” of the new creation, whose first fruits are the Lord’s risen humanity, the pledge of the final transfiguration of all created reality. It also proclaims “man’s eternal rest in God” (Laudato SI’, sec. 237).
First, there is no such thing as a Jewish Sabbath. It is God’s Sabbath bequeathed to all humanity. Jesus declared, “The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath” ( Mark 2:27-28). The papacy’s usurpation of the word of God will not lead to peace and harmony as is being promised; but rather to despotism, oppression and tyranny such as has never before seen in human history (Daniel 12:1).
Herein lies the potential for greatest conflict of all. Relative to creation, the Bible teaches that the God of creation has already given humanity a day of rest and worship. It is the 7th day and not the 1st. It reads, “Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. Then He reminds us, “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it” (Exodus 20:8-11).
Nineteenth century religious commentator, Ellen G. White, whom the Smithsonian Institution recognized as one of the ten most popular religious writers, informs us, “The Sunday movement is now making its way in darkness. The leaders are concealing the true issue, and many who unite in the movement do not themselves see whither the undercurrent is tending…. They are working in blindness. They do not see that if a Protestant government sacrifices the principles that have made them a free, independent nation, and through legislation brings into the Constitution principles that will propagate papal falsehood and papal delusion, they are plunging into the Roman horrors of the Dark Ages”(E.G. White, The Review and Herald Extra, December 11, 1888).
Contrary to the Papal call for legislated decrees for Sunday sacredness, employing the instrument of climate change, the Creator, in the image of an angel with a loud voice, lovingly beckons all humanity today: “Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters” (Revelation 14:7).
Ultimately, all will have to take a stand, not on climate change; but either on Papal tradition of Sunday sacredness or the Seventh-day Sabbath of Creator God.
