Church goers in a number of Anglican churches of England and around the world may take advantage of Pope Benedict's offer to change denominations if their bishops lead the way in protest of the Anglican church decision to use women priests in the churches.
With thousands of these church goers ready to crossover to Rome, the Anglican church, the Church of England, is expected to make a last ditch attempt to stop this from happening by offering concessions over the introduction of female bishops.
The church bishops who are leading this rebellion against Anglican leadership recently held secret meetings with papal advisers to discuss plans for Anglicans converting to the Roman Catholic Church in mass.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The possible conversion to the Roman Catholic Church by thousands of Protestants is a precursor to the end time scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.
Because of the leadership of the Anglican church in England and their decision to install female bishops, there are now thousands of churchgoers that will follow their bishops and convert to Roman Catholicism if that decision is made. In a papal decision handed down by Pope Benedict, the Roman Catholic Church says it will accept these Anglicans if they decide to convert. The Episcopal church in America and Africa have also held discussions on following the Anglican bishops if the trend continues to install women as priests and bishops and also include homosexuals in church leadership.
This report is evidence of an end time scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy which will be played out seemingly in the near future. In Revelation 17, you can find revealed a one-word church that will be in place in the first half of the seven year Tribulation Period. This false church, according to Revelation 17:5, dates back to the Mother-son Cult founded in Babylon 4500 years ago. Verse nine of Revelation 17 says that the false church will be headquartered in a seven-hilled city, the city of Rome, Italy.
Please notice that I did not say the false church is the Roman Catholic Church. What I am saying, based upon scripture, is that the false church of Revelation 17 will be headquartered in Rome and up and operating in the first half of the Tribulation Period. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
