Revelation 17 and 18 tell us of the rise and fall of Mystery Babylon. It is a time when a false prophet will advance One World Religion and the Antichrist will advance One World Government.
There is a strategy playing out that brings the rise of One World Religion front and center. In short, here is the strategy:
- Draw everyone in by promoting “tolerance” and “relativism.”
- Unite all religions and belief systems in an “interfaith movement.”
- Deny the authority of Scripture and adopt non-Biblical “theologies,” such as Darwinian evolution.
- Abandon the deity of Christ and accept radical Islam, welcoming them into this One World Religion.
- Lead efforts to develop One World Government by keeping “unifying causes” in the news!
(Study more about that strategy here.)
Only a few days ago, the Pope visited Abu Dhabi where a very historic document was signed by both the Pope and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmed el-Tayeb. It is called the
Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together.
On the surface, portions of the document seem to be a call for peace. However, read carefully and you will see the above-mentioned strategy at work in the document.
If you don’t care to read the document, I don’t blame you! Here is evidence enough of the nefarious intent: Christianity and Islam are diametrically opposed.
“I [Jesus] am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”~John 14:6
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.
One World Religion will ultimately reject Jesus Christ in favor of a “do good, be good, let’s hold hands and sing kumbaya” false religion. Could this Document on Human Fraternity be the “constitution” of a soon-coming One World Religion?
We can’t say for sure, but it certainly appears to be a forerunner of what is to come in the Tribulation (when One World Religion will actually rise).
Live with purpose and urgency, my friends! As believers, we won’t be here to witness One World Religion, but we see its shadow. We set our sights on the glorious day our Savior calls us to meet Him in the air! Are you ready?
