John Paul II
Esteemed World Statesman
When John Paul
speaks world leaders listen. Why is the Pope speaking at the UN?
The UN is a forum for leaders of governments, not churches. Why is President Clinton making a special trip to have a
private meeting with the Pope? All heads of state are eager to meet with Pope John Paul II
(Time, August 23, 1993). Why? Because
he is not just the head of a church, the Vatican is the capital of
the Papal State. The
Vatican claims to be both the spiritual and civil Kingdom of God
on earth. Through his
priesthood, the Pope has an intelligence-gathering network that is
the envy of every government. John Paul II plays power politics with a skill that awes
world leaders. Nations
are anxious to exchange ambassadors with the Vatican.
Paul and former President Reagan successfully plotted the downfall
of the Communist Empire (Time, February 24, 1992). During this clandestine campaign, Archbishop Pio Lashi said
to the U.S. diplomat, Vernon Walters,

situation . . . listen to the Holy Father (Pope).

Step by reluctant step, the
Soviets and the Communist government of Poland bowed to the
pressure imposed by the Pope and the President.

Malachi Martin, a Vatican insider, friend and advisor to Pope John
Paul, defines this New World Order as follows:
Pauls goal is a geopolitical structure for the society of
nations designed and maintained according to the ethical plans
and doctrinal outlines of Christianity as taught and propagated
by the Roman pontiff as the Vicar of Christ.
statement of John Paul appeared in the New York Times,
April 21, 1990: A united Europe is no longer a dream.
It is not utopian memory from the Middle Ages.
The events that we are witnessing show that this goal can
to be the Kingdom of God on earth reached its zenith during this
Holy Roman Empire. The
Pope wants to again establish the Holy Roman Empire. The Popes
title, Vicar of Christ means ruling on earth in place of Christ.
No matter how altruistic the motives, many Christians believe any
attempt to establish the Kingdom of God before Christ's return is
identified in Scripture as the work of
In the Bible,
the Greek word translated antichrist means instead of Christ,
not against Christ.
fact motivated Luther and other reformers to identify the Papacy
of Daniel 7 & 8 and the
beast of Revelation 13. This historic Protestant view holds that antichrist is a
system, not an individual, which thrives during the Christian Age.
