Mary apparitions may be the deception that unifies world religions into becoming the Harlot of Revelation

On February 27, 2009 · 13 Comments

The excerpts of the article I quoted are from an article on “The Coming One World Religion, by Jim Simmons. I think in his article he has done an excellent job of communicating the Hallmarks of the false religious system called the Great Harlot in Revelation.

He like Roger Oakland and myself and some others believe that Mary apparitions will be a major unifier of the world religions. We know the apparitions and the messages will not be from Mary because the messages contradict what God says in the Bible. I believe the apparition is the same Queen of Heaven demonic being that God condemned in the Old Testament. The message coming from this being is a works theology and is a message of religious pluralism and Universalism.

Think about it… Catholicism in practice today already makes Mary the intermediary between God and man in place of Jesus. Most Muslims also hold Mary in higher esteem than they do Jesus. Also Eastern religions, New Agers and native religion pagans would not have a problem with a Queen of Heaven spirit leading man into a new spiritual paradigm. Even many liberal Protestants have bought into the mother God concept or Gaia the mother spirit of the earth.

So there is a real likelihood that at a time when the world is in turmoil and in world war and everything looks hopeless. An apparition disguised as Mary appears with signs and wonders and a message claiming that people of all religions must unite on love, peace, universalism, tolerance and good works or else there is no hope for the survival of the human race.

Most Catholics will buy into it immediately especially if it occurs during a major world war between the West and Islam. I think most in Islam will buy into it as well for peace, as will all the other major religions of the world. All religious doctrine would then be rewritten to remove anything that offends others so that all religion worship the same Universal God of love, peace and tolerance. They will condemn many religious teachings and all documents that support these teachings will be destroyed.

This world religion would be headed by the Vatican of course. Other world religions will either be incorporated into this great Harlot out of Rome or be an associate member. The Vatican already has an advisory role in the UN and has embassies in most nations as if it was a religious state. When world leaders feel that a universal religion becomes the only hope left for world peace all these pieces will rapidly come together.

This one world religious system will be the Harlot who rides the Beast/Antichrist into power. This is spoken of in Revelation Chapter 17. But when the Antichrist takes power at the mid tribulation point he will turn against the Harlot and destroy the Harlot and this all-paths religion. He will claim that he alone is God. He will then demand worship from everyone on earth. All those who resist will be killed.

Jan Markell also has similar thoughts about the New Age and Mary in this new article.

The Coming One World Religion, by Jim Simmons ~ Bible Prophecy Today

The Last Generation briefly covered all three pillars of a united world system that will need to be in place by or immediately following the beginning of the seven-year tribulation period. The three pillars are:

* One World Government
* One World Economy
* One World Religion

The pillar of the One World Government was given the most attention in the first article.

The focus of this article is to expand on the pillar of the coming One World Religion.

Today, in this generation, we have seen the foundation being laid for a one-world religion. This world religion is symbolized in Scripture by “… the great harlot who sits on many waters” (Revelation 17:1) and by the “… woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names …” (Revelation 17:3).

There needs to be a common denominator between Muslims and the one-world religion. This common denominator may very well be Mary, the mother of Jesus. The Koran exalts Mary, not Jesus. The Roman Catholics also exalts Mary. This along with the numerous alleged apparitions of Mary witnessed by both Muslims and Catholics creates a link between the two religions. These two religions together take in a sizeable portion of the human race.

The Marian apparitions, including the ones in Egypt and Africa, have an underlying message. According to Mary, this message is, “All religions are the same. We are the ones causing division.” This message is easily identified under the third hallmark of a false religion, namely, “Provides a Broad Road to Salvation.” Mary’s message is proven invalid because it contradicts Scripture. The only way to God is through Jesus (John 14:6). Since it is clearly demonstrated to be a false message, we can conclude that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was not the one delivering the message. Mary would never contradict her Son.

According to a British-Catholic magazine, “A Marian revival is spreading throughout Africa with alleged apparitions of Mary, finding a following among the Muslims.” Although African Muslims are supposedly seeing apparitions of the Virgin Mary, they “are not required to become Christians to follow her.”

Most of the spectators who witnessed the Marian apparitions in Zeitoun, Egypt, were Muslim. This apparition of Mary appeared for several nights each week for years and was viewed by millions of Muslims.

Mary appears to be the missing link that helps answer the previous question about how the Muslims could ever integrate into a one-world religion.

Here is part II of The coming world religion, by Jim Simmons. This is really astute teaching. It traces Mystery Babylon from Babylon to the Catholic Church and it shows how Mary worship is tied into ancient pagan worship. It also suggests from the non biblical St Malachi prophecy that the next Pope will be the last Pope and that he will reign during the tribulation. That is my understanding of this prophecy as well. Simmons also suggests that the next Pope will be the False Prophet. I think that is a very high probability.

I  learned about these things years ago but Simmons does a wonderful job of putting it all together. I think his book would be well worth reading.

Food for thought – The present Pope is now 81. How much longer will he be around? If it turns out that the next Pope will become the False Prophet at some point also consider that the true Church will be removed in the Rapture at least 3 1/2 years prior to when the False Prophet appears. Time is certainly short.
