The European Union, what could be called the revived Roman Empire, presents the Charlemagne prize for a person’s service of unifying Europe. It commemorates Charlemagne who was the founder of the Holy Roman empire. Pope Francis received this award in 2016, Emmanuel Macron received it in 2018. Traditionally the award is given to the recipient on Ascension Day, the day Jesus ascended into heaven.
The damnable heresy of Replacement Theology wants you to steal God’s promises from the Jews and apply them to the Church. God’s plan for the Church Age is quite different from His plan for Israel and the Kingdom Age.
When the Antichrist shows up during the time of Jacob’s trouble, he will fool people into thinking that he is actually the Messiah, Jesus Christ. Antichrist has the title of Messiah, ‘Christos’, built right in his name, he is just a false messiah. But this is exactly who is being sung about in the Exsultet prayer at the Vatican, it has nothing to do with the real Messiah, Jesus.
Commissioned by Pope Paul VI in 1963, the Papal Audience Hall in Vatican City was inaugurated in 1971. Shortly thereafter both the hall and the architect achieved such a worldwide fame that the auditorium came to be called familiarly Aula Nervi. It is one of the last great works of Pier Luigi Nervi, an engineer by training as well as a skilled entrepreneur and unsurpassed interpreter of cement as form and structure for architectural and infrastructural works where it is impossible to distinguish the design project from a structural computation.
Every Christian that ever lived, including all of the apostles, are seen in scripture as ‘lively stones’ who are servants of “the Rock” that is the Lord Jesus. Not only that, after the collapse of the Kingdom Age in Acts 7, Jesus raises up Saul who became Paul to be the actual leader of the Christian Church. The apostle Paul, you may remember, not only is given leadership of the Church, Paul rebukes Peter for his hypocrisy in Galatians.
