There’s only one thing the nations of the world can agree on, and that’s climate change. Satan is destroying the planet in order to propose his solution: a “Green New Deal”. A New World Order will address the root cause of climate change by changing the world’s economic model.
The Pope’s US Visit in September 2015
In September of 2015, the Pope of Rome came on a historic visit to the United States. It wasn’t the first papal visit to the US, that’s not what made it historic. It was historic because the Pope was invited to address the US Congress, which is comprised of both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Obviously, like other Popes, he was received by the US President at the White House.
During his visit the Pope also visited Liberty Hall in Philadelphia, where the US Constitution was drafted and signed by the founding fathers of this country. So the Pope, who already “owns” the Supreme Court which has a majority of Catholic judges, also left his stamp on the executive and legislative branches of government.
The scripture says: “Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.” (Revelation 13:2) A bear strikes with its feet. Where the Pope walked in the US he will also strike.
In Philadelphia he gave a mass for the World Council of Families where he positioned Sunday as the day of rest and unity for the family. On the last day of his US trip Pope France addressed the United Nations in New York, where he introduced his Laudato Si encyclical on the environment, and where the Vatican flag was hoisted together with the other national flags. There again, the Pope presented Sunday as a day of rest for the planet, one of his key measures to contribute to solving the environmental crisis.
In summary, Pope Francis planted his banner in a number of very strategic places during his visit. We can make a parallel with the Roman siege and destruction of Jerusalem in the year 70 AD. The Romans came for the first time in the fall of the year 66, then left. The Christians who lived in Jerusalem recognized the Roman standards as the sign given by Jesus in His prophecy regarding the destruction of the temple and the city. The Christians left the city before the Romans came back and thus saved their lives.
The Romans returned in the year 70. The siege of Jerusalem began in the spring of the year 70 during the Feast of Passover. By summer, August 29 – 30, the city had fallen and shortly afterwards the Romans destroyed the temple.
Let’s say we apply the historical template of the Jerusalem siege to the Pope’s visit. We’d expect something to happen in the spring of 2019. Did anything significant happen in the spring of 2019?
It sure did brothers and sisters! But most Adventist commentators have missed it, not understanding the prophetic implications of the event. Notre Dame Cathedral was burned down on April 15, 2019. That day was the 10th. day of the month of Nissan, the first month of the Jewish religious calendar. That was the day when the Jewish people selected the sacrificial lamb for the Passover Feast. In the Jewish religion it’s counted as the first day of the “Passover Holiday”, which extends all the way to Pentecost.
What was the prophetic significance of the burning of Notre Dame Cathedral? I describe this in a lot more detail in two previous podcasts called “The Burning of Notre Dame Cathedral” and “The US and France in Bible Prophecy”, I encourage you to have a listen.
The Lord wants us to understand the prophetic relationship between the France and the US. He gave us a coded sign in the burning of Notre Dame. The Lord didn’t cause the burning of that cathedral, but He allowed it to happen.
There are many parallels between the collapse of the Twin Towers in New York on 9/11 and the burning of Notre Dame which I describe in more detail in those podcasts. Both of these monuments symbolized the national sovereignty of the countries they represented. We can say that both of these structures are national scepters of power.
The Twin Towers symbolized the financial, economic and military leadership of the US in the world. It was a secular scepter of power. Notre Dame Cathedral symbolizes the religious, cultural and historical roots of France. It also represents the Catholic Church, obviously. It’s a spiritual scepter of power.
By attacking both, Satan lay claim to both the secular and the spiritual scepters of power. He’s claiming both the territory and the subjects of planet earth. Jesus recognizes those two separate powers: ““Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” (Matthew 22:21)
Let’s continue applying the historical template of the destruction of Jerusalem to the Pope’s visit to the US. That visit took place on the Day of Atonement of the year 2015. Do you think that Satan understands the Lord’s calendar? You’d better believe he does! He’s shown us he does by organizing the Pope’s visit on the Day of Atonement of 2015 and the burning of Notre Dame Cathedral to happen on the first day of the Passover feast, to coincide with the beginning of the Roman siege of Jerusalem.
I don’t like making time predictions, but if we follow the historical template which Satan appears to be following, we can expect something significant to happen by the end of this month of August, before this podcast is released, or early September. As I said earlier, several sources state that Jerusalem fell to the Romans on August 29th of the year 70 AD and the temple was destroyed on August 30th. Even if we allow for some degree of error around the exact date we need to ask ourselves: what could happen this month?
Brothers and sisters, anything could happen, or nothing could happen. The only significant event scheduled for August was the G7 Summit in Biarritz, France, August 24 – 26. Something very interesting was demonstrated at that meeting.
The G7 (stands for Group of 7) brings together the presidents and prime ministers of the most industrialized nations: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It also includes representatives of the European Union and is presided by France. Every year a few other countries are invited as special guests, but don’t get to attend the majority of the working sessions. This year it’s Australia, India and Spain, with the last-minute addition of Iran.
At this meeting, the heads of state of the leading nations discussed trade policies, climate concerns and other issues affecting the world. Outside, French protesters cried for urgent action regarding the climate crisis. French President Emmanuel Macron, who was championing the climate cause, took away the only concrete victory from the meeting.
“The third day’s most notable progress came in the form of a pledge that will immediately provide $20 million to Amazon countries to combat forest fires and to launch a long-term initiative to protect the rainforest.” (Source: Business Insider’s summary report of the G7 Summit)
“On Monday, when leaders at the Group of Seven summit traveled home after the three-day meeting, their differences appeared to have sharpened, and many agreements seemed further out of reach. And in his concluding news conference, Trump appeared content with the way the meeting ended — without major breakthroughs.”
“But at the summit’s conclusion, little of substance had been accomplished aside from an agreement to devote $20 million to combat sprawling fires in the Amazon, as well as the movement on Iran.” (Washington Post analysis of the G7 Summit)
This sends a very important message that confirms what we’ve been saying in this study. World leaders can’t agree on anything. They’re divided and each have divergent interests and agendas. The only issue that can bring them together is climate change, where every nation in the world has skin in the game.
Climate Change Activism in France
Let’s go back to France now. In a couple of previous podcasts including Prophecy Update Part 1 and US and France in Bible Prophecy, I explained that there’s a popular movement going on in France right now called “the Yellow Vests”. This movement started in November of 2018 in protest against a fuel tax of 23% that President Macron wanted to impose on the French people. President Macron is a globalist and a good friend of Pope Francis, and he wanted to support the Vatican by reducing the consumption of carbon fuels in France.
The French people are very highly taxed. Their purchasing power and standard of living has deteriorated tremendously over the past couple of decades. Interestingly enough, the French president has repeatedly refused to introduce a tax on wealth to level the playing field with the rich. Doesn’t that remind you of something? That was exactly the same pattern that led to the French Revolution, where the people were heavily taxed but the royalty and the Catholic clergy paid no taxes.
Massive immigration into France has also stretched resources even more, as many of these immigrants receive social benefits. Entire areas of Paris have been taken over by the immigrants and have become dangerous to walk in, leaving French people feeling dispossessed of their capital city. They’re tired of the government’s inability to govern them appropriately. On the other hand, the immigrants themselves are also voicing their own claims to social justice.
In November of 2018 a real grass-roots movement started in France, called the Yellow Vests. For a number of months they mobilized all the French rank-and-file to take to the streets of Paris and other large cities in protest against the established political, economic and social order. In response to their demands, President Macron has announced a series of economic and political measures to address their concerns.
This is where the plot thickens, brothers and sisters. This is why we really need to keep an eye on what’s happening in France. In a fascinating turn of events, the Yellow Vests have allied themselves with the environmental protesters and they’re marching together to push forward the agenda of the Paris Climate Agreement. This would be completely perplexing to me if I wasn’t familiar with the wiles of the devil.
Look at the contradiction: The Yellow Vest movement began as a protest against fuel taxes to protect the environment! That was the initial cause that catalyzed the movement. But now they’re giving their full support to the environmental cause, claiming that they share the same enemy: big government and big business. This is the new Yellow Vest chant: “End of the Month/End of the World/Same Enemy/Same Struggle”.
The environmental cause on its own has managed to mobilize very large numbers of all classes of people to the streets in protest against the government’s lack of action regarding climate change. In the words of one of the French ecological leaders: “We’re converging with the Yellow Vests because the current economic model is the cause of the destruction of nature’s ecosystems”.
I’m sure there will be some additional twists and turns to the story, but clearly France is the main stage where the environmental battle is being fought. Last spring 350000 people marched all over France on the climate change cause. That’s a big march.
The devil is very tricky and has great power to deceive. He’s working through the Jesuits, a formidable army that behind the scenes is orchestrating social unrest in France and in other countries.
The protests in France continue even now with numerous acts of civil disobedience all over the country. This is what the protesters are asking for, quoting one climate activist leader: “It’s time to change our industrial, political and economic system in order to protect the environment, society and individuals”. Does that sound to you like they’re asking for a New World Order? Does that sound like the measures the Pope is proposing in his “Laudato Si” strategy for the environment? You’d better believe it!
A Global Green New Deal
The week of September 20 – 27 is ramping up to be a massive global strike against climate change. There are currently 60,000 people signed up to organize marches all over the world, meaning that millions of people will be mobilized globally. What started as a youth movement is now becoming multi-generational and multi-racial. Young people will leave their schools and adults will leave their jobs in order to participate in this week of climate-related events.
The UN Climate Summit will take place on September 23 in New York. The entire Climate Week across the country and around the world was designed to coincide with the Summit.
Listen to how one climate organization leader expressed it: “Protesting against climate breakdown is about much more than emissions and scientific metrics – it’s about building a just and sustainable world that works for all of us. The world needs a global ‘green new deal’ that tackles the root causes of inequality and the climate crisis together. We are rising up for a transformative deal based upon the principles of climate justice and universal rights for all.” (May Boeve, 350.org Executive Director).
Everyone seems to be asking for this global “Green New Deal” that Pope Francis and the Jesuit order will be more than happy to serve them. It’s exactly what Pope Francis proposed to the leaders of the nations at the UN in New York in 2015. It’s no accident that three months later, in December of 2015, the Paris Climate Agreement was signed at the 2015 Climate Summit held in Paris that year.
The Truth Behind the Climate Issue
People across the globe are experiencing severe droughts, disappearing coastlines, hurricanes, flooding, record-breaking heat waves or cold winters, tornados, typhoons, tsunamis, earthquakes and sinkholes, wildfires and melting icecaps. The question is: where is all this coming from?
Satan has enough understanding of the laws of nature, or “the laboratory of nature” as Sister Ellen White calls it, to be dangerous. He’s working furiously through scientists and engineers to tamper with earth’s climate applying a science called geo-engineering or climate engineering.
These mad scientists under Satan’s influence are redirecting wind currents and sea currents which is wreaking havoc in the habitats of dozens if not hundreds of animal species. These unscrupulous technologists are injecting harmful particles into the air in the form of chemtrails to block the sunrays, which reduces rainfall and traps the earth’s heat inside the atmosphere making the earth’s temperature rise. They’re deliberately poisoning the air, land and sea so that it’s become commonplace to see hundreds of birds plummet dead out of the sky or find thousands of fish dead on the seashore.
This is why in the Book of Revelation 11:18, the Bible says:
“The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come,
And the time of the dead, that they should be judged,
And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints,
And those who fear Your name, small and great,
And should destroy those who destroy the earth.”
Brothers and sisters, unbelievable as it may sound, there are people being used by Satan to purposefully destroy the earth. That’s the appalling truth behind climate change.
Remember the recent, devastating forest fires in California and Australia. Think of how they’re burning up the Amazon, the lungs of the planet. Satan is applying the “scorched earth policy”. This is the definition of “scorched earth policy”: a military strategy that aims to destroy anything that might be useful to the enemy when retreating from a position. This strategy was used a lot during World War 1. Indeed when an army retreated from a position they burned everything to the ground,
In other words, Satan is completely deluded that he’s going to win the war against God, keep the scepter of power, and sit in God’s throne in heaven, “the Mount of the Congregation on the sides of the north”. That’s why he’s destroying the earth, because he thinks he won’t be here much longer! Well, the Bible has a very different ending for the great conflict. Satan is going to spend 1000 years confined to the planet that he destroyed, before he himself is cast into the lake of fire.
Sister Ellen White describes it very nicely in the Great Controversy:
Satan works through the elements also to garner his harvest of unprepared souls. He has studied the secrets of the laboratories of nature, and he uses all his power to control the elements as far as God allows. When he was suffered to afflict Job, how quickly flocks and herds, servants, houses, children, were swept away, one trouble succeeding another as in a moment. It is God that shields His creatures and hedges them in from the power of the destroyer. But the Christian world have shown contempt for the law of Jehovah; and the Lord will do just what He has declared that He would—He will withdraw His blessings from the earth and remove His protecting care from those who are rebelling against His law and teaching and forcing others to do the same. Satan has control of all whom God does not especially guard. He will favor and prosper some in order to further his own designs, and he will bring trouble upon others and lead men to believe that it is God who is afflicting them. GC 589.2
While appearing to the children of men as a great physician who can heal all their maladies, he will bring disease and disaster, until populous cities are reduced to ruin and desolation. Even now he is at work. In accidents and calamities by sea and by land, in great conflagrations, in fierce tornadoes and terrific hailstorms, in tempests, floods, cyclones, tidal waves, and earthquakes, in every place and in a thousand forms, Satan is exercising his power. He sweeps away the ripening harvest, and famine and distress follow. He imparts to the air a deadly taint, and thousands perish by the pestilence. These visitations are to become more and more frequent and disastrous. Destruction will be upon both man and beast.
The bottom line is: Satan is the destroyer, also called Abaddon or Apollyon. He’s destroying the earth because he thinks that by so doing he’s going to be able to take over heaven, and he will position the anti-christ as the man of the situation who can still the winds and the waves and bring peace to a planet spinning out of control.
Fear Is the Open Door
Working through the Jesuit Order, this is how Satan is working the climate issue to bring the heads of state together, who otherwise can’t agree on anything as we saw earlier:
A) Create the problem:
We just described how they do that.
B) Exacerbate the problem:
Intensify the calamities and disasters. Create panic and hysteria around the climate issue. Young people are terrified of the future. There are even motherhood strikes right now, with young women saying they refuse to bear children because the future looks so grim. The internet is full of “prepper advice”, proposing all kinds of strategies to survive the global catastrophe that’s looming. And as we just discussed, climate activists are clamoring for a “green world order”, i.e., a new economic, industrial and political system that would preserve the environment as well as human and animal life.
The Bible predicted the climate panic:
“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.” (Luke 21:25-26)
C) Propose a solution to the problem:
Enter Pope Francis on the scene with Laudato Si. (The Jesuits already entered under cover a long time ago). His climate strategy proposes exactly what the activists are clamoring for: wealth redistribution, heavily controlled industry, and habitat zoning with human beings squeezed into a few large cities and most of the earth’s surface preserved for wildlife. This plan used to be known as United Nations Agenda 21. And who else to govern the new system but the man who proposed it? This is how “the whole world wondered after the beast” (Revelation 13:3).
Brothers and sisters, as I explained at the beginning, climate change is the Trojan horse that will bring in not only the Sunday Law but will entrench the papacy – the abomination of desolation – firmly in the seat of world power. Fear always opens a door to the enemy.
Believe it or not, the world is going back to the equivalent of a feudal system. Except that in our generation, by virtue of the technological progress, they’ll be able to control with an iron fist all commerce – in other words, who can buy or sell. Only those who bow down to the beast and take his mark – mandatory Sunday worship – will be allowed to buy or sell. Those of us who refuse will be marginalized from the economy. We’ll be hunted and tracked down by sophisticated tracking equipment in an incredibly cruel persecution as the world has not yet seen. And it will end with the proclamation of a death decree against God’s people.
As this broadcast is released, Dorian, a Category 5 hurricane which is the most dangerous, is barreling towards the Bahamas and the southern east coast of the United States. President Trump has declared a state of emergency for the region. Please join us again soon for Part 3 of “Climate Crisis and Sunday Law”.
