Roman Catholic Pope Francis Very Happy That “Christians” and Muslims Are United in Their Devotion to the Virgin Mary”

Folks it is truly getting scary out there in the “church world” and I am looking up now more than ever. Casey Stengel a former manager of the NY Mets used the words “Amazing, Amazing, Amazing” when speaking of his team, and I am going to borrow those words here. It is absolutely “Amazing, Amazing, Amazing”, what is happening around the world, especially when it comes to the false church of Rome, their false gospel, and their influence in the world. Here is an excerpt from the Vatican Information Service:
THE POPE ENTRUSTS TO MARY ALL THE CITIZENS OF LEBANON
Vatican City, 26 March 2014 (VIS) – Yesterday afternoon Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin sent a message, on behalf of the Holy Father Francis, to the participants in the eighth Islamic-Christian Prayer Meeting, “Together around Mary, Our Lady”. The meeting, which took place in Beirut, Lebanon, to celebrate the Solemnity of the Annunciation, was organised by the St. Joseph University Alumni Assocation and the College of Our Lady of Jamhour.
The Holy Father shows his joy at seeing “Christians and Muslims united in their devotion to the Virgin Mary”, and comments that “the shrine of Our Lady of Lebanon in Harissa is a blessed place where everyone can go to invoke her”. He also encourages Christians and Muslims to “work together for peace and for the common good, thus contributing to the full development of the person and the edification of society”, and entrusts the participants in the meeting “and all the inhabitants of Lebanon to the maternal intercession of the Virgin Mary, Queen of Peace and Protectress of Lebanon”.
Which Jesus Came Out of the “Virgin Mary’s” Womb?
The Muslim Jesus or the Jesus of the Bible?
I used to belong to the crowd of millions of deceived souls who had a devotion to the “Virgin Mary,” until the Lord opened my eyes and showed me that it was totally demonic in origin. It is extremely interesting that the Muslim people also have a devotion to the “Virgin Mary”? Did you know that the Muslims do not even believe that God has a Son, so the question that I must ask, is which “Virgin Mary” do the people of Islam (Muslims) have a devotion to? Is it the “Virgin Mary” that is found in the Holy Bible or is it the Muslim “Virgin Mary”? If the Muslims do not believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, then which Jesus Christ was it that came out of the womb of the “Virgin Mary”? Did Jesus the Son of God come out of the womb of the “Virgin Mary” or did the prophet Jesus, according to Islam, come out of the womb of the “Virgin Mary?” Was Jesus Christ the Son of God or was he not? Was Jesus Christ merely a prophet as the people of Islam teach? While we are on this topic, what does the Bible have to say about those who do not believe in the Son of God?
He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. (John 3:36)
He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. (1 John 5:10-12)
The scriptures are very clear in their declaration that the wrath of God abides upon those who do not believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. That would include the Muslims, as well as the people of Judaism (and many other religions too), who absolutely refuse to believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Eternal life belongs only to those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, not merely a prophet as the Muslims teach and believe. The Roman Catholic church also mention the fact that Mary is found in the Islamic Koran:
“Since Vatican Council II, the Catholic Church recognizes that Muslims honour the Virgin mother of Jesus, Mary, and invoke her with piety. … Mary is mentioned various times in the Koran. Respect for her is so evident that when she is mentioned in Islam, it is usual to add ‘Alayha l-salam’ (‘Peace be upon her’). Christians also willingly join in this invocation. I must also mention those shrines dedicated to Mary which welcome both Muslims and Christians. In particular, here in Lebanon, how can we forget the shrine of Our Lady of Lebanon in Harissa?”
Satan clearly has his hand in this whole thing about a devotion to the “Virgin Mary.” He will do anything he can to get a person’s spiritual eyes off of Jesus Christ as being the only way of salvation. (Acts 4:10-12, John 14:6) What we are seeing take place before our eyes in this generation, is the giant sucking sound of a false unity with Rome at the head, and all the pieces are falling into place.
