A Letter to the Pope

A few weeks ago, we highlighted some of the recent events taking place in Venezuela. The social-political unrest of this country has been the discussion and concern of many U.S. and world leaders, as the Venezuelan government continues with contention.

In his efforts to find a solution to these challenges, and to seek guidance during this time of division, President Nicolas Maduro wrote a letter to Pope Francis, “asking him to mediate in the political situation”.

A political (state) leader seeking to receive aide and unite with a religious (church) leader? This, we are seeing, is happening more and more frequently. Well then, why would Pope Francis indicate that “it would be ‘pastoral imprudence’ on his part to choose a side in the current split in Venezuela”?

Marvelous in her shrewdness and cunning is the Roman Church. She can read what is to be. She bides her time, seeing that the Protestant churches are paying her homage in their acceptance of the false sabbath and that they are preparing to enforce it by the very means which she herself employed in bygone days. Those who reject the light of truth will yet seek the aid of this self-styled infallible power to exalt an institution that originated with her. How readily she will come to the help of Protestants in this work it is not difficult to conjecture. Who understands better than the papal leaders how to deal with those who are disobedient to the church? {GC 580.1}


And let it be remembered, it is the boast of Rome that she never changes… Protestants little know what they are doing when they propose to accept the aid of Rome… {GC 581.1}

There is no doubt that the Papacy will play a significant role in the marshalling of the nations; which inspiration prophesied would take place during the final scenes of earth’s history. In part 4 of our Bible study, “Marshalling the Nations”, we will be reviewing some of these prophetic events, to better understand God’s prophetic chart; so that when we read about the division and crisis across the globe, we ought not guess at anything!
