The Pope Says This Christmas Is A ‘Charade’ And That For Some People ‘It May Be Their Last’

Pope Francis sure does say a lot of strange things.  I don’t think that any other Pope throughout history has ever called Christmas a “charade” or has suggested that for many people this Christmas “may be their last”.  What in the world would cause Pope Francis to adopt such an ominous tone?  Without a doubt, the leader of the largest religious organization in the entire world would be privy to information that would not be available to ordinary people like you and I.  Could it be possible that he is aware of something that is coming that is going to dramatically change life on this planet?  What we do know is that our world is becoming increasingly unstable.  World War III threatens to erupt in the Middle East at any time, the number of terror attacks around the globe continues to increase, earthquake activity continues to rise, giant cracks are opening up in the ground all over the world, and we are rapidly plunging into a brand new global financial crisis.  There is certainly a lot to be concerned about, but what would make the Pope so glum that he would actually call Christmas a “charade”?

One of the primary reasons why the Pope is so down is all of the war that is going on all over the planet right now.  It was in the context of talking about war that he made this recent statement about Christmas being “a charade”

Pope Francis has declared in a sermon that Christmas this year will be a “charade” because “the whole world is at war”.

The pontiff’s speech at the Vatican came after terrorist attacks in France claimed the lives of 129 people; a Russian plane was bombed and dozens of people were killed in a double suicide attack in Lebanon.

Speaking during Mass at the Casa Santa Maria, he said: “We are close to Christmas. There will be lights, there will be parties, bright trees, even Nativity scenes – all decked out – while the world continues to wage war.”

“It’s all a charade. The world has not understood the way of peace. The whole world is at war.”

And what he has said is actually true.  War and civil conflict are breaking out all over the planet, and all of this violence threatens to spiral out of control as we head into 2016.

On another occasion, Pope Francis even went so far as to suggest that we have now entered a third world war

“Even today, after the second failure of another world war, perhaps one can speak of a third war, one fought piecemeal, with crimes, massacres, destruction.”

So has World War III begun?

I don’t know that I would go that far, but I believe that we are certainly on the road toward it.

The recent statements from Pope Francis that I have already shared with you are bizarre enough, but then just a few days ago he added this whopper to the list…

The Pontiff, who turned 79 on Thursday, elaborated on his views this weekend, telling a crowd, “While the world starves, burns, and descends further into chaos, we should realise that this year’s Christmas celebrations for those who choose to celebrate it may be their last”.

What in the world did he mean by that?

Precisely who was he talking about when he said that “it may be their last” Christmas?

That statement can be taken a lot of different ways, and it has raised a lot of eyebrows.  And of course this is just the most recent example of this Pope doing and saying some very unusual things.  Just consider what we have seen over the past couple of years…

Pope Francis Declares That Christian Fundamentalism ‘Is A Sickness’

In New York, Pope Francis Embraced Chrislam And Laid A Foundation For A One World Religion

In Fiery Speeches, Pope Francis Excoriates Global Capitalism

Pope Francis Calls For A New Global Political Authority To Save Humanity

The Pope’s Embrace Of Evolution Brings Us One Step Closer To A One World Religion

Pope Francis And Shimon Peres Discuss The Establishment Of A ‘United Nations Of Religions’

This Pope has been unlike any Pope that we have ever seen before.  He has been consistently doing and saying things that would be regarded as “crazy” if any other religious leader did or said them, but because he is the Pope he gets away with it.

Meanwhile, other prominent voices around the planet are also issuing apocalyptic warnings these days.

For instance, tech guru Elon Musk believes that World War III “could erupt at any time”

World War III could erupt at any time, and the effects could be devastating.

That’s the warning from top technology boss Elon Musk.

The billionaire businessman, who’s companies include Tesla Motors and SpaceX, believes a number of factors including the growth of religious extremism could trigger a third World War.

Musk believes that in the future the world could find itself locked in a nuclear World War “far worse than anything that’s happened before.”

And I believe that Musk is right about that.

Personally, I am completely convinced that we are eventually heading toward a third world war, and I believe that it will fundamentally change life on this planet.

So what is the solution?

Well, Musk believes that we need to consider traveling to Mars while there is still time

Mankind may only have a brief window to set foot on Mars before a disaster such as a third World War makes it no longer possible, Elon Musk has warned.

The founder of SpaceX, which was the first private company to resupply the International Space Station, fears such a war could set back technological advancements.

His company is preparing to announce its ambitious plans for rocket and spacecraft technology to carry humans to the red planet.

To Musk, a “colony on Mars” would make perfect sense.  He believes that it would give us the best chance to survive as a species if life on this planet was totally wiped out

Speaking in an interview with GQ, he said such a mission may be important to help ensure the long term survival of mankind.

In particular, he believes a Martian colony could help to ensure humanity survives if there is ever a calamity on Earth that destroys life here.

‘You back up your hard drive…. Maybe we should back up life, too?’ he said.

If life is so great and everything is under control, then why are world leaders like Elon Musk and Pope Francis so seemingly obsessed with apocalyptic scenarios?

Could it be possible that everything is not really “under control”?

The truth, of course, is that most of us have a gut feeling that big trouble is on the horizon.  Many of us may not know exactly what that trouble will consist of, and we may not be able to put our feelings into words, but deep inside most of us understand that the future is not bright.

So what should we do?

Is there anything that can be done?

Is it inevitable that humanity is facing a future of chaos and war?

  1. For many, today could be their last. Nothing prophetic in this. It is appointed unto man once to die and after that comes the Judgment. Point being that one should be far less concerned with the dying than with what comes after. Seek first the Kingdom of God and HIS righteousness and whatever comes there will be no need for concern.

  2. I am not smart enough to see into the future.
    I however am reasonably good at connecting data dots.
    You would have to be a complete moron not to realize that the world in on a negative trend.
    -world economy going down
    -we are involved in a clash of civilizations
    -we are loosening in an asymmetrical war
    -we have turned our backs on God
    -there is a war on traditional religion
    -Morals have degenerated – nothing surprises us or is off limits

  3. I don’t find it at all hard to understand what the pope is saying. His words are not even mysterious. He’s simply saying that there is so much war and violence going on in the world right now that 1) Christmas, which is almost celebrated globally, is a charade in that we all talk about peace on earth for one day and then go back the next day to slaughtering each other; 2) therefore, perhaps we should be mindful this Christmas to the fact that, because of our violence, this will be the last Christmas for many people who die in that violence. There is no great mystery or foreboding prediction in what he says. It’s simple recognition of the facts — a sober reminder that humanity loves to celebrate “peace on earth” at Christmas and then return immediately to the trenches to slaughter each other.

  4. I agree with Knave_Dave in what the Pope was saying because that’s exactly what I was thinking when reading this piece. However, and here is where the Pope is corrupt along with the Catholic Church and why they are a part of the end time system. The Pope does not know the Bible, period. Shouldn’t he know that the prophecies of the Bible tell us that we are headed in this direction no matter what we do? It is out of our control. God is allowing mankind to bring ourselves to the brink of destruction in order to teach mankind once and for all that we cannot live without Him, and that living without Him is living with Satan. There are only two choices in this world; either have the Spirit of God or the Spirit of Antichrist! For believers, like myself, we are commissioned by Christ (Mark 16) to go into all the world and preach the Good News of the Gospel to all “creation.” It’s interesting that Jesus chose the word “creation” instead of “people”. Why? Because we need to speak God’s word into creation to heal it and rid it of all the evil. We start with our own lives and our families lives. When we do, we gain the protection of God. Then it is our duty to go out and heal the sick, cleanse the leper, cast out demons, and raise the dead. In John 14:12-14, Jesus said this, “Assuredly I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also, and greater works he will do because I go to the Father. Anything you ask in My name I will do to glorify the Father.” So if you think Mark 16 is farfetched, than you don’t believe in Jesus. You are just a doubting Thomas who needs to see the wounds in His body to believe. But what did Jesus say to Thomas? “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed (John 20:29).” It’s hard to believe, but we are far more blessed today than even the apostles because we believe in faith!! Read the story of Abraham and you will understand this further.
