The Pope pulled holy water over the statue of St. Maron inside the Vatican.
February 23rd, the Pope blessed the statue of the Lebanon “saint” Maron. The new statue of of Lebanese Saint Maron is unveiled in St. Peter’s basilica.
Saint Maron was a mystic and hermit born in fourth century Syria, whose miracles and teachings attracted many supporters throughout the eastern Roman Empire.
He is considered the father of Maronite Christianity, which has more than 3.5 million followers across the world.
The Pope is supposed to know the Bible, and to be a servant of the Most High God.
The Pontiff is not.
The Bible is very clear that no man made statues are going to be declared “blessed”, or “Holy”. People who perform such religious rituals, and men of corrupted minds and hearts.
You saw no form of any kind the day the LORD spoke to you at Horeb out of the fire. Therefore watch yourselves very carefully, so that you do not become corrupt and make for yourselves an idol, an image of any shape, whether formed like a man or a woman, or like any animal on earth or any bird that flies in the air.
(end of scripture).
The second commandment bans making of images, that people bow down to and declare “holy”.
“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
The Pope is a lawless man. He has lifted Him self above the law, and become a law by Him self.
He will show no regard for the gods of his ancestors or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all. Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his ancestors he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts. He will attack the mightiest fortresses with the help of a foreign god and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him. He will make them rulers over many people and will distribute the land at a price.
(end of scriptures)
This verses from Daniel fits into the message from the Jewish Apostles Paul. Both of them fits on the Papacy, the global kingdom of the “Holy See”.
2 Thessalonians 2:2-4
not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.
