Pope Francis Heads To Historic UAE Meeting For Religious Unity

The professed Protestant world will form a confederacy with the man of sin, and the church and the world will be in corrupt harmony.


In the first-ever papal visit to the Arabian peninsula, Pope Francis is heading to the United Arab Emirates on Sunday for a trip to highlight coexistence, religious freedom and interfaith relations.

The pope plans to meet with the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmed el-Tayeb. The UAE has declared 2019 the “year of tolerance,” bringing together different religions.

In preparation for the visit, the UAE has been highlighting its commitment to tolerance and peace between religions. This is important in a region recovering from years of conflict and strife.

“I am happy for this occasion the Lord has given me to write on your dear land, a new page in the history of relations between religions,” the pope said last week. He also said, in Arabic, “Peace be with you.” He asserted that faith in these times can draw people closer.

The UAE is hosting 600 religious leaders for an inter-faith conference that will also be part of the pope’s itinerary. Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, tweeted his welcome to the pontiff and to el-Tayeb. “We are hopeful that generations to come will prosper in peace and security.”

A page devoted to the Human Fraternity Meeting, the interfaith part of the trip, says that 2,000 students have signed a Zayed Pledge of Tolerance, that is part of the precursor events to the arrival of Tayeb and Francis.

Ellen White Prophesied The Vatican Will Create A One World Religion

The professed Protestant world will form a confederacy with the man of sin, and the church and the world will be in corrupt harmony.—The S.D.A. Bible Commentary 7:975(1891). LDE 130.3

It's amazing how prophecies are fulfilling rapidly. God's word never lie!

The whole world is to be stirred with enmity against Seventh-day Adventists because they will not yield homage to the papacy by honoring Sunday, the institution of this antichristian power.—Testimonies to Ministers and Gospel Workers, 37(1893). LDE 136.2

Those who trample upon God’s law make human laws which they will force the people to accept. Men will devise and counsel and plan what they will do. The whole world keeps Sunday, they say, and why should not this people, who are so few in number, do according to the laws of the land?—Ms 163, 1897. LDE 136.3

The rulers of the land will take their position above the great Creator of the world. The claims of a false Sabbath will be brought to the front, and the rulers and the people will act upon the principle of a short-sighted policy. The false Sabbath, the first day of the week, will be accepted, and the rulers will unite with the man of sin to restore his lost ascendancy. Laws enforcing the observance of Sunday as the Sabbath, will bring about a national apostasy from the principles of republicanism upon which the government has been founded. The religion of the Papacy will be accepted by the rulers, and the law of God will be made void.—Manuscript 39, 1906, 1.(“The Law of God,” 1906.) 7MR 192.1

The professed Protestant world will form a confederacy with the man of sin, and the church and the world will be in corrupt harmony.—The S.D.A. Bible Commentary 7:975(1891). LDE 130.3

Roman Catholic principles will be taken under the care and protection of the state. This national apostasy will speedily be followed by national ruin.—The Review and Herald, June 15, 1897. LDE 134.2

The papal church will never relinquish her claim to infallibility.All that she has done in her persecution of those who reject her dogmas she holds to be right; and would she not repeat the same acts, should the opportunity be presented?Let the restraints now imposed by secular governments be removed and Rome be reinstated in her former power, and there would speedily be a revival of her tyranny and persecution.
