POPE'S APPEAL FOR PEACE : Sure trigger for coming conflict

June 11, 2015

VATICAN  -  Pope Francis encouraged Russian President Vladimir Putin to engage in " sincere " international efforts aimed at bringing peace to Ukraine as the two men met privately at the Vatican on Wednesday.  Earlier in the day , the U.S. ambassador to the Holy See , Kenneth Hackett , said his country would like to see the Vatican step up its concern about what is happening in Ukraine during the pope's meeting with Putin , the second time the Russian leader & Francis have met since the pontiff was elected in 2013.  During the few minutes that Putin & Francis greeted each other & after their 50-minute-long closed door talks , there was no mention of any blame regarding Ukraine , although the protracted hostilities in that Eastern European nation bordering Russia was a main thrust of the discussion. " As it was possible to predict in the context of the world situation, the talks were dedicated principally to the conflict in Ukraine and the situation in the Middle East," said a Vatican spokesman.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS  -  It is interesting to note that when the Pope talks peace, conflict often follows.  In June 2014 the Pope hosted a peace prayer at the Vatican. He invited Israeli president Shimon Peres and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.  The ' peace prayers ' took place at the Vatican. They prayed for peace in the Holy Land.  That was in the June.  By the beginning of July the Israel/Gaza conflict had begun.  Seven weeks of Israeli bombardment , Palestinian rocket attacks ,  ground fighting resulted in the deaths of over 2,200 people.  The same principle applies to Putin.  When he talks about peace & " nothing to fear from Russia " ( as he said this week ) the opposite is true.   Putin is not about peace & the world does have something to fear from Russia.  The Pope & Putin’s meeting does not herald peace – it heralds war . . .

 

1 THESSALONIANS 5 v 3  -  For when they shall say , Peace & safety ;  then sudden destruction cometh upon them , as travail upon a woman with child ;  & they shall not escape.  But ye , brethren , are not in darkness , that ' that day ' should overtake you as a thief.

 

We are not saying this event fulfills the cry of peace in this verse but it highlights the principle- Godless men who talk of peace bring war.
