JD: In a recent video done by Pope Francis, he says that all peoples of this world, whatever religion, or even those of non-faith, are all children of God. David James, my broadcast partner, disagrees.
DJ: Pope Francis has people from various faiths; from Buddhism - from Islam, promoting the idea that basically we are all in this together and at one point, near the end of the video, he says, "In this crowd, in this range of religions - meaning those represented by those in the video - there is only one certainty that we have for all and that is that we are all children of God. Now, certainly we are all God's creation but we are not all children of God because the Bible says that those who have not been born again through faith in Jesus Christ, are actually children of the devil. So we are not all brothers and sisters under the fatherhood of the God of the Bible.
JD: Actually the Bible does agree with David and, in fact, David agrees with what God's Word says in I John, written by the Apostle John.
DJ: In I John 2:18 he says, "little children it is the last hour and you have heard the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrist have come, by this we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us." And then he says, " who was a liar, but who denies that Jesus is the Christ; he is the antichrist who we denies the Father and the Son." So those who attempt to equate all the religions or say that we're all children of God, actually, they are fulfilling John's words concerning the last days. This is the spirit of antichrist.
JD: We are indeed in the last days. The spirit of antichrist is alive on the world scene today. We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
I did not say that THE antichrist is on the world scene, but the spirit of antichrist is very active today. The antichrist is yet to come, he will appear after the Rapture of the Church, 2 Thessalonians 2:3, when we as Christians depart this place to go to another, we leave here going to the heavenliness, the antichrist will then have major sway during the Tribulation Period.
Now the antichrist will come out of the Revived Roman Empire; that would be the ten toes of Daniel 2 or the ten horns of Daniel 7:7. Daniel 7:8 says the little horn, one of twenty-seven names of the antichrist will come out of the Revival of the Roman Empire, which means the antichrist is about ready to appear on this earth. The stage is set for the antichrist to come on the scene and then all of the Bible prophecies that have predicted the end times, will be fulfilled. And that is my prophetic prospective on the news today.
