WOE! Pope Francis Asks Orthodox Church to Establish Common Date for Easter

Pope Francis suggested to establish a common date to celebrate Easter, one of main Christian holidays, an Italian newspaper said.

And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time – Daniel 7:25 (KJV). 

Apostate POPE FRANCIS

Francis said that he had already proposed to fix the same date of Easter to patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew I and to patriarch of Moscow Kirill.

“[Roman Catholic] Church is willing to establish a fixed date for Easter, so it can be celebrated on the same day by all Christians, Catholic, Protestant or Orthodox,” the pope said Friday during the International retreat for priests in Rome, as cited by the Corriere della Sera newspaper.

The date to celebrate the Resurrection was fixed during the Council of Nicaea in 325. It changes from year to year as the holiday falls on the Sunday following the first full moon of spring.

But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate- Revelation 2:6 (KJV).

Catholics use the Gregorian calendar to calculate the date of Easter, while the Orthodox Church uses the Julian calendar, so usually they celebrate the holiday on different days. Although in 30 percent of cases the date of Easter is the same for Catholics and Orthodox.

The biggest issue with all of this is that yet again the Catholic Church displays their Anti-Christ spirit.  It is clearly demonstrated in the attitude that the Catholic church takes in regards to the HOLY FEASTS of the bible.  I am not talking the Levitical Hebrew Feasts, who deny Christ, I am talking the New Testament Feasts, the very feasts that JESUS himself told us to keep until he returned. The Catholic church does not uphold either the right days, nor do they celebrate it according to the way JESUS instructed.

This attitude could not be more obvious than when they sought to change dates during the rule of Constantine. I do not want to get into the discussion of the Sabbath being changed, nor do I uphold a Saturday Sabbath. What I want to emphasize is the audacity of the Catholic church that is reflected in a key statement made when they changed the Saturday Sabbath to Sunday.  Rather than teaching that JESUS ROSE again and he himself became the Sabbath (Rest), the Catholic’s usurped Christ’s authority and made the following statement in the Catholic Record:

 “Sunday is our mark of our authority”…the church above the bible, and this transference of the sabbath is proof of this fact” – Sept 1, 1923.

I don’t need to point out the rebelliousness of that statement, it is obvious and clear. Most notable for me, is that it correlates to satan claiming he would place his throne above God.  The Catholic Church clearly demonstrates traditions of men. By their own admonishment, they think more highly of their laws and authority, than those that Jesus taught.

It was not by the AUTHORITY OF THE Catholic church that the Sabbath was changed, it was by the new covenant of JESUS CHRIST.

For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world- Hebrews 4:3 (KJV). 

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ- Colossians 2:16 (KJV).

Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets- Matthew 22:36-40 (KJV).

However, as we were warned in Daniel, the Catholic Church has endlessly and deliberately changed the dates and times of Christ’s feasts, and do not uphold the feasts of the bible, but rather celebrate according to their DOCTRINE, which is pagan worship!  Easter (Ishtar) as celebrated by the Catholics and many other churches that mix bunnies with JESUS is not the way Christ instructed us to celebrate this day (For more on observing the Lord’s Supper Read 1 Corinthians 11:17-34).

When we remember the Passover, let us do so in remembrance of Jesus Christ, our Risen Savior and King.  Who became the Lamb, slain on the altar (upon the cross) and died for each of our sins, so that we may have eternal life.  We should not pollute this day with pagan rituals, bunnies, eggs, and baskets, or traditions of MEN!  Let us remember what JESUS taught.

When was Jesus Crucified?

The next issue of contention is that the Catholic Church teaches that Jesus was crucified on Friday. That is also NOT biblical, nor does it pan out when we review scripture.  Below is a brief explanation, if you would like to learn more you can click here.

The wave of the firstfruits offering occurs ‘the day after the Sabbath’. This is the first day of the week.  The day that Jesus rose from the dead! – Sunday, and if you count back THREE DAYS and THREE NIGHTS, you arrive at Thursday.

  1. The Passover lambs were sacrificed on the 14th Nisan. This is the day Jesus died and was buried before the Sabbath began.
  2. The feast of unleavened bread started the next day, on the 15th Nisan (High Sabbath)
  3. 16th of Nisan was the Weekly Sabbath
  4. The day after the Sabbath was the feast of firstfruits – this was the 17th Nisan, Jesus ROSE from the dead and presented himself to God before he could be touched by his disciples. 

The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre- John 20:1 (KJV).

Why is this important to understand ?  Because it correlates EXACTLY to the feast days, and it does so on purpose to fulfil the prophecies that foreshadowed the coming of the Messiah.  All the rituals that were performed under the Mosaic laws had to be done in an orderly manner, following the instructions, from the burial to the resurrection. Jesus mirrored the spring feasts in order to fulfil this prophecy..  We serve a God of purpose, and everything HE does has meaning.  It was to be understood, that Jesus, that was prophesied as the Messiah, was who HE said he was. Jesus was the firstfruits, harvested from the heart of the earth, now living, ascended to the Father as the wave of the sheaf offering.

Remember when he told Mary she could not touch him yet? (John 20:17) this also proves he had to be presented to God as the first offering of the harvest. Exactly as the rules of the feast, that nothing could be harvested before presenting the first fruit of the harvest before the Lord. All of this tells us, that Jesus was the firstfruits.

And it had to be three days and three NIGHTS, because that too was prophesied:

For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth – Matthew 12:40 (KJV).

Needless to say, we have just witnessed another partial fulfillment of prophecy.  The direction the Pope is taking everyone is to a ONE WORLD RELIGION. Setting the stage for the Anti-Christ, expressed in false sentiments of “peace.”   Let us establish a day for Ishtar?  How about we just celebrate the Passover as instructed in the bible, rather than change the dates and the times?

The Catholic Church is looking for power and to mold everyone under their laws.  This is another example of the CHURCH usurping the authority of Jesus Christ.

In the Faithful Service of Jesus Christ,

Prophecy:

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils – 1 Timothy 4:1 (KJV).

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ- Colossians 2:8 (KJV).

And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time – Daniel 7:25 (KJV). 

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect -Matthew 24:24 (KJV).

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry – 2 Timothy 4:3-5 (KJV).

For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely- Jeremiah 6:13 (KJV).

These are matters which have, to be sure, the appearance of wisdom in self-made religion and self-abasement and severe treatment of the body, but are of no value against fleshly indulgence- Colossians 2:23 (KJV).

To the Dearly Beloved Brothers and Sisters who FOLLOW JESUS, and not the false teachings of MAN:

Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped – Isaiah 35: 4-5 (KJV).

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;- Isaiah 61:1-2 (KJV).
