Deception: The Pope, a Hero of Faith

I attended a ”Toronto blessing” seminar in Turku (a town in Finland) in the mid-1990s. I did not regard the “Toronto blessing” to be biblical, which is why I was there to try and test what its foundation was. When I was at the meeting, I sensed very powerfully how the Holy Spirit talked to me and said “Catholic spirit” – thus stating that the messengers of the “Toronto blessing” were also conveying the impact of Catholicism.

Later on, I understood more of what God told me in Turku. The Toronto blessing is one segment and sub-root that emerged from the charismatic movement of the 1960s in the United States. At that time, “spiritual gifts” also started to operate more actively in the Roman Catholic church. The charismatic movement within the Catholic church did not rid the church of its unbiblical doctrines. Instead, even this day, charismatic Catholics continue to believe that the pope is infallible, that Mary reconciled their sins and that they are saved through a sacrament (water baptism), etc. It is obvious that the spirit within the Catholic church in the 1960s was not the Spirit of God because the Holy Spirit leads to all truth and never promotes and strengthens lies and deception, and never leaves people entangled in lies. Instead, the Holy Spirit sets people free from the lies by telling them what is true.

The Jesuits of the Catholic church have conceived the third force movement, i.e. the charismatic movement, an open pathway to all Protestants who approve of the charismatic movement – a movement driven by the catholic spirit which makes people approve of Catholicism and to also join the Catholic church. That is why Jesuits of the Catholic church have infiltrated to every Christian charismatic movement, denomination and churches. The goal of this is to – through ecumenism – to create the global church movement, led by the Pope.

Bill Johnson is the senior pastor of the Bethel church, and Kris Vallotton is senior assistant pastor of the Bethel Church. On his website, Kris Vallotton posted a text (on 13 June 2016) about his meeting with pope Franciscus. Kris Vallotton is involved in the extreme charismatic movement based and rooted in “spiritual gift” activity conveyed by Jesuits. The Holy Spirit is not there at all – but a demonic spirit and the kundalini power. When you read all of the present text and compare it to what the Bible teaches, and pray for understanding, you will see that the current extreme charismatic movement is part of the deception that leads those involved in it to Catholicism, the pope and the Antichrist.

Invitation to meet the Pope

Kris Vallotton wrote how he had the privilege to meet Pope Francis. Kris said that it was probably one of the highlights of his life. He said that the Pope was funny, warm and very spiritual. Kris wrote that he was invited along with several other pastors, because the Pope has a deep passion for unity among Believers. The meeting lasted two hours. Pope's opening comments were: “We must invite the prophets back into the church and welcome them with open arms.”

The greeting by the pope revealed the purpose of the meeting. He invited Kris Vallotton and other pastors to join the Catholic church. The invitation was open and straightforward because the Catholic church – through a spirit of deception – has affected those in the extreme charismatic movement so as they would approve of Catholicism. In this text, I use words extreme charismatic to describe non-Biblical activity.

Jesus is the Only Way to Heaven

Kris wrote how Mike Bickle asked the Pope did he believed that Jesus was the “only way” to heaven. Kris clarified this writing, there have been rumors circulating that Pope Francis is a Universalist. The Pope didn't blink and eye and answered:  “We might be surprised by who we meet in heaven, but the only way into heaven is through Jesus Christ. There is no other way into heaven.” 

Kris says that all the pastors there sighed in relief. This is a prime example of how people can be deceived and fooled by stating the correct path of salvation at one time, but all other times give a totally false statement of how you are saved. Kris Vallotton and the rest of the pastors there believed this deception because the Pope’s faith in Jesus is such where also atheists and other godless people go to Heaven. In other words, the Pope is saying that everyone – including the godless – are saved through Jesus even though they do not believe in Him.

Unfortunately, many people believe the lies and deception of the Catholic church because it does sometimes state Biblical truth, but at other times, the church perverts Biblical truth through lies. Ecumenism is an example of this. The Catholic church blinds and betrays everyone involved in ecumenism because Catholics do talk about Biblical truth with Protestants, but when not accompanied by Protestants, Catholics believe that Mary reconciles their sins and that they are saved through a sacrament (water baptism), etc.

Pope Francis has written a long, open letter to the founder of La Repubblica newspaper, Eugenio Scalfari, stating that non-believers would be forgiven by God if they followed their consciences.

Vatican Radio's website radiovaticana brought out what Francis said about atheists and the blood of Jesus (22.5.2013): “Instead,” the Pope continued, “the Lord has created us in His image and likeness, and has given us this commandment in the depths of our heart: do good and do not do evil”: "The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone! And this Blood makes us children of God of the first class! We are created children in the likeness of God and the Blood of Christ has redeemed us all! And we all have a duty to do good. And this commandment for everyone to do good, I think, is a beautiful path towards peace. If we, each doing our own part, if we do good to others, if we meet there, doing good, and we go slowly, gently, little by little, we will make that culture of encounter: we need that so much. We must meet one another doing good. ‘But I don’t believe, Father, I am an atheist!’ But do good: we will meet one another there.”

The Pope believes that the blood of Jesus also saves atheists who do not believe in Jesus. The Bible says that the blood of Jesus only saves those who believe in the Lord Jesus (Romans 3:19-26). The Pope believes that Jesus is the only way to Heaven in such a way that the blood of Jesus saves everyone who does good works, and people do not need to repent and believe in Lord Jesus. The path of salvation as taught by the Pope is a false, anti-Christian gospel of lies which does not lead to salvation, but Hell (eternal damnation) unless the person repents and believes in the Lord Jesus.


Kris Vallotton wrote how the Pope told about his relationship with the Holy Spirit, indicating that he had experienced the baptism in the Spirit. Kris said that the Pope didn't use those exact words, but that was clearly the connotation. Kris told how the Pope spoke of the atrocities the Catholic Church perpetuated on people through the centuries and how the Pope asked us all to forgive them for their sins.

It is certain that the Pope cannot be filled with the Holy Spirit of God because a Spirit-filled person does not teach and state that Jesus’ blood saves atheists (godless people) who do not want to repent and believe in Lord Jesus. The Pope is filled with the spirit of the Anti-Christ, which is why he deceives people to believe his lies and false doctrine.

The apology by the Pope is a nice gesture, but it is based on well-planned deception, and the Pope does not really apologize. If his apology were real, he should say that previous Popes who led the Catholic church throughout the centuries made mistakes and were party to all the atrocities committed by the church. If the Pope’s apology were real, it should result in the church revoking its doctrine of the Pope being infallible and in the church revoking many other things and teachings. However, none of this has happened. Therefore, the apology is a well-planned trick which is part of the deception with the aim of luring and tempting Protestants to accept Catholicism and to join the Catholic church.

The mother of harlots and abominations of the earth

Kris Vallotton wrote how he had heard so much about the Pope in general, and Pope Francis, in particular. Some think he is the Antichrist, while others call him a false prophet, or the leader of the new world order.

Because the Pope believes that the blood of Jesus also saves atheists, he is a deceiver who has the Anti-Christ spirit and who is preaching a false gospel. If Kris would know and understand the Biblical path of salvation, he would also state that the Pope is a deceiver who has the Anti-Christ spirit.

Kris writes that when he was saved, the leaders of his church taught that the Roman Catholic church is the mother of harlots as written in the Book of Revelations. According to Kris, about that time, the Holy Spirit decided to fill Catholics in the same way as for Protestants, and suddenly the Catholic charismatic renewal was born. Kris writes that after that (referring to the birth of the Catholic charismatic movement), it was difficult to teach junk, especially when the person sitting next to you at the church meeting is singing in the Spirit and the person is Catholic.

The Catholic charismatic renewal has not resulted in the revoking of false doctrine because Catholics continue to believe that Mary reconciled their sins to God, that a sacrament saves (water baptism), and they also believe in the sacrifice in the mass where Jesus sacrifice His life and is sacrificed again every day, etc. Therefore, the Catholic charismatic movement is part of the Jesuit plan to lure and tempt Protestants to join the Catholic church. When we read the Bible, we understand that the Catholic church is the mother of the harlots of the earth because right from its beginning, Catholicism started to adopt the doctrines of the Babylonian religion, and the Catholic church teaches the doctrines in Christian terminology and its doctrine is based on Babylonian religion and, partially, on the Bible.  

Kris Valloton wrote how he posted their meeting with Pope Francis on his social network pages and true to nature, many people couldn’t help but unleash hell on him. Kris told how for  some the reconciliation of Believers on the earth is the sign of the new world order – the ushering in of the Antichrist’s reign.

The Pope is preaching another gospel, a gospel of lies because he says that Jesus’ blood saves atheists (the godless). Apostle Paul says that those who preach another gospel (a false gospel) are accursed (Galatians 1:6-9), which is the same thing as being a child of Hell and Hell-bound. According to what Paul and the Bible teach us, the Pope is preaching a false gospel and when people believe it, they will end up in Hell, i.e. eternal damnation. The “salvation” offered by the Pope is one of the pieces of the puzzle in the end time deception that will lead people to the Anti-Christ and under his power because a false gospel always makes people victim to Anti-Christian deception.

Kris wrote how its hard to imagine how a proactive move towards loving an entire people group, forgiving one another, and reconciling after 500 years of hatred and persecution can lead to the rule of satan. Kris said that religious people can find a problem with every opportunity.

If Kris really understood what the Bible teaches us, he would see the deception brought about by the Pope and the outcome of it. Right from its beginnings, the Roman Catholic church has been an Anti-Christian movement which does not represent the Biblical faith. True disciples of Lord Jesus never cooperate and bow down to Anti-Christian sects or movements. If you believe that the Pope is a man of God, you have believed a lie and are serving the Anti-Christ and are not a man of God.

Many people think that the Pope and the Catholic church have erred in doctrine in regard to some passages of the Bible, but regardless of that, they consider Catholics to be Christians and believers like Protestants are. The Pope believes that the blood of Jesus also saves atheists, and the Catholic church believes that Mary reconciles the sins of sinners to God. Of course, Catholics also believe that Jesus reconciles the sins of sinners to God, but because they also believe that Mary reconciles sins, their gospel is a false one, because the Lord Jesus is the only Redeemer of sins and the Mediator between God and people.

The above teachings by the Pope and the Catholic church reveal that the error by them is not just an error in doctrine, but a false gospel – and they also reveal that the Pope and the rest of the Catholics (who believe in the official doctrine of the church) are not serving the God of the Bible but evil spirits. True disciples of the Lord Jesus cannot be party to serving false gods and state that those preaching a false gospel are children of God.

Kris wrote that it is disturbing to him how selectively people apply scripture. Kris asks in his writing: It’s also How do you justify spewing hatred for Catholics in the name of “they are not bringing salvation to people,” while ignoring the second commandment to love your neighbor? Kris said that it is funny to him how people spiritualize their dysfunctions. Kris wrote how some people should record themselves and then play it back, because they might be surprised at who is really inviting the Antichrist to the planet!

Of course, all disciples of Lord Jesus love Catholics and the pope as their neighbour, but through the love of truth. Kris considers it to be a spiritual dysfunction when believers understand truth by the grace of God and therefore says what is truth and what are lies. This is not a spiritual dysfunction, but the love of truth created by the Holy Spirit of God. Instead, a religious dysfunction, empowered by emotions, makes people believe lies and to accept deception.

Based on Biblical proof and the teachings of the Pope and the Catholic church, it is clear that the Pope and the Catholic church is paving the way for the Anti-Christ to appear on Earth. I ask all disciples of the Lord Jesus to pray for the Pope, Catholics and Kris Vallotton so that they would repent and get to learn the truth which leads to real salvation and to eternal life through faith in Lord Jesus.

A hero of faith

Kris Vallotton wrote how in Acts 2, Peter made it clear that in the last days God would pour His Spirit out on everyone. After that Kris said that it  is possible that on this 500th anniversary of the Protestant reformation that God would take the two and make them one again.

In Acts 2, Peter is citing the Book of Joel. Through Joel, God gave a prophecy to the people of Israel of a first and the latter rain, i.e. the Holy Spirit of God poured into the hearts of the Israeli people. Many people, such as extreme charismatic, teach this wrong, saying that it also applies to gentiles and that after the Spirit is poured, the whole world will believe in the Lord Jesus after a so-called power evangelization has taken place on Earth.

When we carefully study what Chapter 2 of the Book of Joel says, the spiritual awakening and renewal of the first and latter rain – i.e. receiving the Holy Spirit through the first and latter rain – was only promised to the Israelites. The first pouring of the Spirit took place on the Day of the Pentecost and the second pouring will take place when the remnant of Israelites (one-third) will repent in the last days and believe in Lord Jesus. When the Bible says that the Spirit will be poured on all flesh in these outpourings, it means that the Spirit is outpoured to all of those Israelites who repent and believe in the Lord Jesus – not everyone on Earth. The Bible says very clearly that all people of the world do not want to receive the salvation in the Lord Jesus.

Of course, God pours the Holy Spirit and gives it to gentiles who believe in Lord Jesus, and this has happened, but not on the Day of the Pentecost because on that day the Holy Spirit was received by Jewish disciples of Jesus the Messiah (Acts 2). After that, the Spirit of God was poured in Samaria (Acts 8) and then to the gentiles (Acts 10). Gentiles can also get the Holy Spirit of God and they can receive spiritual gifts of the Spirit of God, but the outpouring and the blessing of the Holy Spirit in the first and latter rain are two different points in time of God’s promised outpouring of His Holy Spirit onto Israelites (Jews) when they believe in Lord Jesus. The first outpouring of the Spirit to Jews took place on the Day of the Pentecost and the second will take place in the end times, on the last days when the remnant of the Jewish people (one-third) will repent and believe in the Lord Jesus (Zachariah 13).

Kris argues that it is possible for God to merge Catholicism with Protestantism. God never merges lies and truth because such a mixture is one of lies and deception, not the truth. If Kris understood what the truth is, he would see that the truth and lies never mix.

Kris wrote how Pope Francis once again is raising the same cry for reconciliation, and it feels like the walls of hatred and disunity are finally falling down. Kris continues saying that reconciliation always has its detractors ..... there will always be a spiritual reason that one group feels justified in rejecting or reducing another group. Kris said that when we love people, we are not saying we agree with them, or even that we have a value for their belief system; we are saying that we love and value them as a person – as another human being who is made in the image of our beautiful Creator.

The reconciliation offered by the Pope, and the merging through it, are lies and deceits. True disciples of Lord Jesus do not have hatred in their hearts and they do not hate Catholics because hatred of people is a sin. Man indeed is the image of a beautiful, wise and loving God. Regardless of that, the Holy Spirit of God does not join those who preach the Biblical gospel and those who preach a false gospel.

It is not slandering to say that the Pope’s offer of reconciliation and unity is deception because true disciples of the Lord Jesus cannot join those who say that the blood of Jesus saves atheists and that Mary reconciles the sins of sinners to God. True disciples of Lord Jesus love all their neighbours, including Catholics, but do not join those who preach a false gospel.

Lastly Kris Vallotton wrote: "Pope Francis, thank you for having the guts to brave the religious system, and reach beyond the borders of tradition to love a group of people, some of whom refuse to love you back. God bless you! You have become one of my heroes."

Kris Vallotton’s hero is a man who believes and teaches that the blood of Jesus saves atheists (the godless), and who is the head of a church which teaches that Mary reconciles the sins of sinners to God. Kris Vallotton says that he is a disciple of Lord Jesus, but the disciples of Lord Jesus do not consider the preachers of a false gospel to be their heroes, but considers God to be their Hero because God is the Real Hero.

Lies, infiltrated

Some Jesuits have infiltrated Protestant denominations and churches. They pose as Pentecostals and Baptists and as others, depending on where they have infiltrated. Their mission inside Protestantism is to gradually start praising Catholicism more and more. At some stage, Jesuits who pose as Pentecostals, for example, tell others that they are joining the Catholic church because they consider it to be the most Biblical church.

The purpose of this is to shake the faith of people and to make them think that Catholicism is the most genuine and the most Biblical church. The charismatic movement, and by this, I am referring to the extreme charismatic movement – i.e. supernatural activity of a demonic spirit, activated by demonic spirits is one tool in the Jesuit toolbox. Through it, Jesuits attempt to lure Protestants into accepting Catholicism and into joining the Catholic church.

Of course, the pure and right kind of charismatic activity does exist, i.e. activity of spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit of God, but that activity always adheres to Biblical truth and never guides people to believe false, perverted teachings of the Word of God.

The Roman Catholic church is not a Biblical church and does not represent the Biblical faith. Instead, it is an Anti-Christian sect which has a mixture of Babylonian mystery religion and other pagan religions, with some Biblical doctrine. Lies combined with some truth are and will remain lies because the truth is pure, separate of all lies.

Of course, Catholics can be saved, but they need to give up many doctrines of their church, such as the church teaching that Mary reconciles sinners to God, that salvation is through a sacrament (water baptism), etc. The Catholic church teaches that when Catholics give up some or all of their church doctrine, they no longer are Catholics and they no longer are saved (believe in what the church teaches).

The spirit behind the extreme charismatic movement is a spirit of lies which tries to make those affected by it accept Catholicism and to also join the Catholic church. The Kris Vallotton example and a massive number of other examples of the extreme charismatic movement (e.g. Ulf Ekman) reveals and prove that the spirit of lies performs deception, luring people into being favourable to Catholicism and to also join the Catholic church.

Finally, let the following passage of Biblical truth speak to those who, by the grace of God, have the ears to hear how we should regard those serving idol worshippers (i.e. those who preach a false gospel):

2 Corinthians 6:
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
