Pope Benedict decided he must use modern day technology to reach the world and its digital generation, so he has launched his own dedicated channel on the popular video sharing website, YouTube.
Although the Vatican has its own website, the YouTube venture represents its biggest reach into cyberspace aimed at everyone from devout Catholics to the casual web browser with video and audio footage of the Pope's speeches as well as news from Pope Benedict.
Working in collaboration with YouTube's owner, Google the Vatican will supply a variety of material for its new channel and the Catholic church will retain full control of the content.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
A worldwide video channel on YouTube from the Vatican in Rome is a precursor to the prophetic scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.
One of the fastest growing websites in cyberspace today is YouTube. It gives all people an opportunity to produce video programs for the world to view. We here at Prophecy Today avail ourselves to this unique outlet. And now, the announcement of Pope Benedict launching his own YouTube channel in an effort to reach the world with the message from the Vatican in Rome, Italy. As I mentioned, this is not only a precursor to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, it is almost like reading from the pages of the Bible's prophetic passages.
The Apostle John wrote in Revelation how in the Last Days a religious leader will indeed be headquartered in Rome and cause the world to worship as part of a one world religion, Revelation 17. The religious leader will be the Beast of Revelation 17 better known as the Antichrist. This false world religion will be the mother-son cult worship which was started at Babylon 4,500 years ago, Revelation 17:5 and Genesis 11:4.
I do not believe the Pope is the leader spoken of here, but I do believe his launch of the YouTube channel does indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
