The Pope Looking for a Seat in the Jerusalem Temple Holy of Holies?

The Pope and Jerusalem

  • Headline in Israeli National NewsHistoric Agreement Drafted Between Israel and the Vatican.  The story is that the Pope has been granted a seat in the room where the last supper is believed to have taken place.
  • Pinto gives the historical background that the Crusades were about taking Jerusalem so that Solomon's temple might be rebuilt for the Pope to rule the world from there, which rather strongly reminds of:
2Th 2:3  Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2Th 2:4  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

It was news to me that the Crusades were about setting the Pope up in the temple in Jerusalem, and it's a rather startling idea given the scripture above, and the fact that evangelicals have for years been anticipating the rebuilding of the temple but nobody to my knowledge has anticipated the Pope as the Antichrist who would take his seat there.  It's already a species of the abomination of desolation that he has a seat in the upper room.

In spite of our differences of opinion on Mr. Pinto, I think that you will agree with my latest article. I point out and quote sessions of the Council of Trent which are inconsistent with true Christian doctrine. Click here to read it on my website.

I keep meaning to get back to you but keep getting swamped. I'll try to get to your reference which sounds like something I couldn't object to.

First of all, I'm so grateful that I ran across your blog (very interesting posts, btw). This story, along with the recent resignation of the Pope, is ... amazing, exciting, kinda scary ... WOW!
