Hidden life with Christ!

Many people live in a strong delusion secretly following Christ yet deny him publicly. These people claim to be wholly resting upon Jesus Christ for salvation, while at the same time trying to please the world. This is so typical of deception and lies. Most people who profess to know God do not know God at all. They are double-minded who believe in Christ with lukewormness in their heart and constantly living in a state of compromise. Double minded person is one who say one thing and do another, they claim to know God and yet their actions do not live up to such claims. God’s Word says that a double-minded man is “unstable in all he does.” (James 1:8).

The true Spiritled Christian is not going into compromise their fire and love for God. Matthew 6:24 says No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Exodus 34:14 says Our God is a jealous God and will not accept a service that is divided with Satan. Because those who serve two masters are unsteady, hypocritical ,double minded , wavering in both character and feelings and is always conflict to himself. They are not true believers in Christ and they have very nature of carnal mind and have cowardnesss which is enmity against God .They can not express the word of God truthfully without fear. Their lifestyles separate because of backsliding. Proverbs 14:14 says, “The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways. Jesus also expects us to preach the Gospel, which offends most false professed believers.

To deny Jesus Christ is to deny God’s Holy Spirit. 1st John 1:22,23 plainly state “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father ..but he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.”

2 Timothy 3:5 says they have a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof from such turn away.

Conclusion: Anyone who is in Christ, they live for him alone and are obedience to Him. If we worship God in spirit and in truth, we cannot worship anyone or anything else (Matthew 4:10).

What type of Music does your Church has?

Today’s world’s churches are filled with perverted and corrupt gospels and doctrine of the devils. Their Music is Worldly, coming from human thoughts, philosophy and emotions which is chaotic and noisy Entertainers who are very deceitful in nature “ In the name of Praising God” . Their loud music is a physically and spiritually a distraction so much that one can not hear what they are singing or saying.

I don’t condemn anyone, for the Bible condemns all of us. In The Old Testament Singing, playing, and dancing were some of the music used to Praise God.

They claim to worship best in with their rock/hippop concert environment which brings self attention and self-glorification which does not honour Christ .Their loud music distracts us from keeping our thoughts pure and focusing on God. when we hear to such music it doesn’t bring conviction to the lost nor becomes rejoice to the saved.

In Ezekiel 28:13 says We know that Lucifer was created with an inbuilt music system so he is well equipped to deceive the world with unholy sounds. Such so called Christian bands are interested in making albums and making money out of it drawing attention to themselves rather than God.
In some other churches the talented singer or musician performs music while the whole congregation sits and watches the performance instead of singing and praising God with together with hyms and psalms exalting God together. Their music glorifies the talented singer. Hebrews 2:12 says , “…in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.” Notice the Bible says “sing” and not “listen. when people are simply sitting and listening to a choir or performer they are not obeying God’s command to sing. They are not “offering the fruit of our lips(Hebrews 13:15). People are more interested in pleasing themselves, than pleasing God. Scripture commands not to make ourselves friends of the world and enemies of God (James 4:4)

Many carnal Christians are in shame that the great hymns of the faith are often viewed as ancient and outdated for today’s modern Christian. In scripture I John 2:16. God says that all that is in the world is not of the Father and falls under one of these three sinful categories the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.Romans 12:2 reads, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
There are various instruments used in Bible times such as harp, lyre ,lute , horn, or shofar ,the trumpet ,flute, pipe ,tambourine sistrum ,cymbals and bells .

125 Old Testament verses describe worshiping God by singing.
Lets examine few Scriptures:
Deuteronomy 31:19 – Write down this song … put it in their mouths.
2 Samuel 22:1 – David spoke to the Lord the words of this song…
2 Chronicles 29:30 – Sing praise to the Lord with the words of David…
Psalm 40:3 – He has put a new song in my mouth – Praise to our God.
Psalm 51:14,15 – My tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness. O Lord, open my lips, And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
Psalm 71:23 – My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing to you.
Psalm 89:1 – I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever; with my mouth will I make known your faithfulness.
Psalm 126:2 – Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing…
Isaiah 52:8 – With their voices they shall sing together…

60 Old Testament verses refer to worshiping God by using instruments.
Here is few scriptures what they say
2 Samuel 6:5,21 – Israel played before the lord on instruments.
1 Chronicles 23:5 – They praised the lord with instruments which David made for giving praise
2 Chronicles 7:6 – The Levites had instruments of music, which David had made to praise the lord. David offered praise by their ministry.
2 Chronicles 29:25 – The Levites were arranged with cymbals, stringed instruments, and harps. This was commanded of the Lord.
Psalm 43:4 – On the harp I will praise you.
Psalm 68:25 – Singers went before, players followed after.
Psalm 150:3-5 – Praise Him with the trumpet, harp, etc
But in The New testament (John 16:13) we are commanded to worship God in spirit and in truth .We glorify God in our singing praises to His name by Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord(Ephesians 5:19). Colossians 3:16 says when we sing, we are to speak, teach, and admonish one another.
So now my question is -What type of music your church is playing or encouraging?

Spiritual gift of discernment.

The Holy Spirit gives the gift of discernment to certain believers((1 Cor 12:7-11, 1 Cor 14:1) in Christ to clearly recognize and distinguish to find whether they are from God, Satan, the world or from human in any situation . Such Believers compare spiritual things with spiritual and are able to examine from a Biblical perspective different from world’s perspective (1 Corinthians 2:12) and see behind what a person is saying and presenting, whether they are telling truth or false. They have the Holy Spirit working in them which shows them the difference between truth and error, light and darkness, righteousness and sin, victory and defeat, and the Spirit and the flesh.
But we sometimes need to be very careful about people who claim to have spiritual discernment who have false spirits endangering our Christian lives and they criticize someone they dislike to make themselves good or accuse someone with false things to justify their own sin or to attract attention to themselves. They are showing the signs of strong deceptions and powerful delusions. Such people are self righteous and have a spiritual pride. The true lovers of God are humble, having a heart for God. They are gracious, contiunosuly seeking God and obeying him in everything. They are
Empathetic, faithful, down to earth person and very prayerful not boasting.

Mathew 13:11 says He answered and said to them, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.
1 John 4:1 says that Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Jesus Christ is our Great Physician!

We limit Jesus Christ through our thoughts and beliefs
And forget that He himself being the chief corner stone
He came that we may have life abundantly
He came to open the eyes of the blind
He came to set the prisoners free
He came to heal the brokenhearted
We must make the choice to listen and rise up in faith
While seeking His will in our lives
And the Blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ

If we have faith as small as a mustard seed
We can say to mountain to move and it will move
But without faith it is impossible to please Him
If we doubt Him because of our unbelief, we won’t get anything
For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds
And to him who knocks it will be opened
He wants us to turn away from our wicked ways
He will take sickness from our midst
He shed His blood for our healing
He forgives all our sins and heals ALL our diseases
He wants us to cast all our care, concerns and worries upon Him
Because He cares for us!

He doesn’t want us to worry, be anxious about anything
But through prayer and supplications with thanksgiving,
We are to let our requests be made known to Him
His desire is to restore our health
Physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually
If we Delight ourselves in the Lord and seek his Kingdom
He will give us the desires of our heart

There are miraculous recoveries doctors can’t explain.
We must have the faith of the woman with the issue of blood
Who spent all she had upon the physicians but wasn’t healed
She trusted Jesus and touched his garment and got healed
Trust God In all things as nothing is too difficult or impossible for Him
He is our very present help, refuge and strength in times of trouble
He has Plans to prosper us and not to harm us,
And plans to give us hope and a future
True miracles happen every day
When you desire a miracle desire to glorify God not man
Give a testimony to declare the goodness of the Lord
For whatever you ask for in prayer,
Believe that you have received it, and it will be yours
Prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well
And the Lord will raise him up

Jesus knows everything about us
He even knows the number of hairs on our head
Jesus is our Great Provider
Through Christ Jesus all our needs are met.
He paid the price for our healing upon the cross
By his stripes we are healed
Continue to thank the Lord for bringing freedom, peace, healing.
Jesus is the Great Physician able to heal the body, mind and soul
He’s on duty 24/7, 365 days a year.
We never need to make an appointment nor have to wait
He is a great physician of all living things
Trust Jesus be healed in his Name!

IS Sunday school is Biblical?

God’s children must worship together, regardless of age, gender, race, marital or socioeconomic status, etc. God wants everyone to seek him, He longs to see people of all tongues, tribes, nations, and ages in communion with one another. And I personally desire to worship with my family. God’s Word shows that he is glorified by the worship of children. He commands their inclusion in the worship of his people. We all must experience God together as a family if God is to be at the center of our family, that means we gather together with fellow believers to sing and pray, We form our identities as Children of God through active participation in worship, and involvement in a community of practice we do it as a family but our own kids are segregated during worship sent to Sunday school separating from their families , and from family of believers and removed from the preaching of the Word based on their age-graded programmes,bible stories, parish school’s playground for playing and dance almost like a school class room.

Often children in nurseries are offered no spiritual instruction or worship opportunity at all. Did Jesus said young children do not attend “the service” until they can sit quietly with their families or segregate them to Sunday schools? But kicking out the children, or demanding only perfect children come to mass, is like demanding only saints and perfect Christians come to church. The Church is designed for everyone .What if the little kid goes out and dies tomorrow in an accident, would you deny him participating in the mass or worship service till he was a big responsible kid? Jesus wants all of us, even at our worst, to come and love and be loved.
Do we not include our children’s in our family prayer at home? Why not in Church? Jesus loves children. Jesus wants them. They are not inconveniences and distractions. They are blessed outpourings of God’s grace.

In Matthew 18:3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
In Matthew 19:14, Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Mark 10:13-16: People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” 16 And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.
In the New Testament we see Jesus in the temple at the age of 12 (Luke 2:41 -50), and recall the spiritual joy that moved John the Baptist even in the womb (Luke 1:41). Paul reminds Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:15 how from ‘infancy’ he had known the holy Scriptures.

The Biblical model for the structure of a church service is for each person to share what God has done for them: “Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation.” (1 Corinthians 14:26).
Deuteronomy 31:12-13 :Gather the people together, men and women and little ones, and the stranger who is within your gates, that they may hear and that they may learn to fear the Lord your God and carefully observe all the words of this law, 13 and that their children, who have not known it, may hear and learn to fear the Lord your God as long as you live in the land which you cross the Jordan to possess.

Mass or Church service is Celebration of Christ not education time. When infant and small childrens attend the mass or Church service with their parents, the childrens will realize, the worship service of Mass is for worshipping God. Those who choose to forsake assembling themselves together with their fellow Christians are, by example, teaching others that attending church is not important. Attending all of the services of your church takes personal sacrifice and commitment. It is not always the easiest thing to go to church. Scripture does not say that we are to serve and obey the Lord only if it is convenient.

Most Sunday schools have a craft time, snack time, or game time. Usually, the kids have been waiting eagerly for these entertaining events, and they provide a great opportunity to get the wiggles out. When Sunday school is over, it’s candy time. Kids line up at the door, crafts in hand, and receive a sticker or candy as they rejoin their parents. Paul’s letters to the Ephesians and Colossians make it clear that children were present in their gatherings. It is reasonable to assume that the whole church would gather to read Paul’s letters. It is noteworthy, then, to note that Paul addresses specific age groups in his letters, including children in particular. Children need to learn that their little voices are important to the corporate praise.
In Psalm 22:22 the Lord says, “I will declare thy (the Father’s) name unto my brethren; in the midst of the assembly will I praise thee.” This teaches us that the Lord is in the midst of the worshiping congregation in a very special way. He is with his brothers when they are praising God. Shall we refuse the little children to come to Jesus Christ as he is in the midst of the assembly, though he is not ashamed to call them his little brothers?
And of which of you that is a father shall a son ask a loaf, and he give him a stone? or a fish, and he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he give him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? (Luke 11:11-13). Which one of us will substitute a nursery for our children in place of the presence of the Spirit of Jesus Christ as he sings praises to God in the midst of the church?Children have the capacity to approach the throne of grace boldly.

Kiss of Love or Lust?

Demonstrators who are supporting ‘kiss of love’ campaign are ethically and morally wrong. They are morally illiterate who have no idea about the Indian culture and are blindly importing the values from one society and impose on another society. It’s against of Indian culture, traditions and moral values. Kissing in Public has desecrated the institution of marriage, making a mockery of chastity, commitment and holiness. It’s a shame what is going on in India today and how liberals are thinking and confusing the act of lust exaggerated in its expression as an act of Love.

Kissing was never considered offensive or as a disrespectful in India. Kissing our Children’s, siblings, parents are considered as a display of love which no one has any problem. But a Day dedicated publicly will become offence and deteriorates morally because kissing our spouses in public is considered to be erotic.
The people who support such campaign are immature, lacking self esteem, and dwelling in insecurites.They are old enough to differentiate to understand Love and lust and being against societal norms. When someone goes against societies norms, childrens and others respectable families will around them feel uncomfortable ,embarrassing and disrespectful.

Many corrupted people are adapting the western culture forsaking the beautiful culture of India .There is nothing wrong to adapt the western culture if it is appropriate and have standards of morality. I am really surprised and amazed why many youngsters are attracted to bad rather than good stuff. Those who hate these inappropriate values are wrongly labeled as haters, do not have modernism, ignorant bigots. Love that lacks of trust, honesty, respect, support between each other is not love, it is simply a lust. Kisses in places where there are others can be seen as a form of boasting of a love that may simply not be there. One can think that the couple is extremely in love but truth is that they may be faking it to get peoples attention and making a way for others for temptation. They give the impression that they are capable of having everything in front of everyone. I am not condemning anyone For Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts corrupting morals, not been able to understand right or wrong and good or bad. It’s not only about tradition or culture but also the basic decency and respect.

Public display affection lowers the Indian standards incrementally for which the tradition was kept over the decades will be ruined by few perverts and this type of behavior is unacceptable in public and not healthy for a society. If Kissing is allowed in Public, it will lead to fondling, etc before you know it, everybody wants more and more . The kissing in public ends up further physical intimacy and slowly turning to entertainment for others to see leading to ugly scenes and unwanted attention. And those people who are tempted by them find it difficult to control themselves physically and might indulge in a criminal way making a way for, bullies, mockers and criminals like predators, sexual abusers, molesters, rapists to increase.
Everyone of us need to control our desires in holiness and honor and act the way we want behind the closed doors of bedroom with our life partners .If done outside bedroom it becomes a passion of lust not act of Love. Even animals don’t care about Public displays, they will do in front of anyone and anywhere. Those who encourage public kissing is behaving worse than the animals. Its shame and to be determined by the public’s level of tolerance for immorality.

It is part if who we are, respect and affection will help keep our marriage strong. So kissing in public doesn’t make our relationship stronger but an opportunity for tempting others and being a bad example for children’s and families. We should also keep the future generations in mind .Many youngsters are supporting this champign must be able to differentiate right way or wrong way and to avoid falling into trap of confusion. Why cant they show the love and affection behind the four corners of the wall in their home not under the sun in front of all. What will children think when they are forced to witness couples kissing each other on the streets like animals? Its disgusting and form of a Deceptive affection, indecent act and lust that cannot make a relationship last.
Love in Indian tradition is considered sacred, something which if you express publicly, it diminishes its value. Many Western people love our Indian Culture and are abandoning their views and adopting Indian views and traditions but we being Indian are fascinated by their culture and adapting our lifestyle to theirs. Even According to Indian law ,most of the charges against such act are bought under Section 294 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Section 294 of the IPC states:
Whoever, to the annoyance of others,
(a) does any obscene act in any public place, or
(b) sings, recites or utters any obscene songs, ballad or word, in or near any public place,shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to three months, or with fine, or with both.

Have a genuine faith in Christ Jesus in the midst of the storms of your life!

True Faith is a gift from God. We must act positively to a negative, impossible situation to obtain Gods mercies and miracles .It is the Gods light that guides us through the darkness and allows things to happen. True faith is the power that comes from a fearless heart to trust wholly, soley on God without wavery or doubt or false fallen faith. When life’s challenges come we must be very strong in our faith in trusting God. God wants us to have faith as a small mustard seed to work mighty miracles.

Many people have a lip service week faith, they just merely say I believe in Jesus but during hard times their faith vanishes and they fail to trust God to take care of them. Their lack in faith increases when they face trials, their faith fall apart or even they might stop praying and started worrying or stressing, some even started looking answers from others instead of submitting them to God and looking God for answers. The Bible says we need to have a child like faith, faith as a grain of mustard seed (Matthew 17:20) to move mountains. Mathew 14:31 says Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
We can read one more verse Mathew 16:8 says Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked, “You of little faith, why are you talking among yourselves about having no bread?

When we place our trust in man, he fails but trusting God in all circumstances through prayer and supplication holds the blessings of God for we know Jesus never fails and there is nothing impossible with him. In Life’s struggles, we must experience the power of Christ by having a solid faith in him which we cannot see and rest upon his promises which is in the scripture. When our faith is in the power of our emotions, self righteousness, feelings, our ability, our experiences, doctors, medicines, other men we fail, that’s not the true faith but it’s just an outward faith. We can release our faith through constant prayer, supplication and thanksgiving to our Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 4:6-7).

We forget what Gods word says; Jesus has All authority in heaven and on earth. He is faithful to his promises if we truly seek him with all our heart and soul. Hebrews 11:6 says but without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
1st Peter 1:7 says that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.
Our life will change dramatically once we release our faith in Christ. Hebrews 11 says By faith, Noah built an ark. We need to surrender our circumstances over to Jesus and be confident that He has got it all under control. He heals all our sickness and diseases, He casts demons out of those who were possessed by them, He even raised the dead, He is there in all situations in all circumstances as our refuge and strength.
Conclusion: True trust in God gives us peace in our life, hope and strength to face any difficulties. It’s very difficult to face any problems victoriously without God on our side.

Reasons Why Catholic Church or Vatican or Rome or Pope are not a Babylon or Antichrist!

1. Mary is not pagan earth goddesses because she is the mother of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She was qualified to give birth to the sinless Son of God because God chose her and miraculously caused her to conceive by the “overshadowing” of the Holy Spirit. Luke 1:42 says she is blessed among women and has a favor from God. All generations will call her blessed (Lk 1:48 ).So definitely she is not a pagan Goddesses.

2. By worshipping saints and angels Catholic Church can not be accused as pagan worshippers. Bible shows us the importance of the witness of angels and saints and Bible teaches the communion of saints (Luke 12:8-9). Saints in heaven are as the angels of God, they are intimately involved in man’s salvation under Jesus Christ. When one prays to them, they in turn pray to God who commonly grants His graces on their behalf and because of their close relationship with Him. The Bible also teaches that angels are present in the assemblies of the faithful.(Ref verses 1 Corinthians 11:10, Hebrews 12:22-23, 2 Thessalonians 1:10, Daniel 7:10, Matthew 25:31, 1 Corinthians 6:2, Romans 8:38-39, Psalms 90:11, Revelation 8:2-4). God commands the use of statues and images for religious purposes.( Exodus 25:18-19, Exodus 26:1, Numbers 21:8, Genesis 33:3)

3. Catholic Church or Rome or Vatican is not a huge importer and exporter of cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and carriages; and human beings sold as slaves.
(Revelation 18:13)
4. Catholic Church or Rome or Vatican doesn’t match the description of the beast as claimed.
5. Catholic Church or Rome or Vatican or Pope is not a Babylon because it has not caused the slain of Israel and the slain of all the Earth (Jeremiah 51:49) nor Devoured and crushed Gods people. (Jeremiah 51:34)
6. Catholic Church or Rome or Vatican is not Abundant in treasures (Jeremiah 51:13) .
7. Antichrist is a liar and denies that Jesus is the Christ, and he also denies the Father and the Son (1John 2:22). Catholic Church has taught for almost 2,000 years that Jesus Christ had come in the flesh, that He is God Incarnate, the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity – God. Hence the Catholic Church or Rome or Vatican or Pope they do not meet none of the qualifications of being an Antichrist or Babylon
8. Catholic Church or Rome or Vatican or Pope is not proud, boastful and arrogant, drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus((Revelation 18:7, Revelation 17:6).Hence its not a Babylon.
9. Catholic Church or Rome or Vatican or pope did not keep God’s people captive as prisoners and their Trusts is in not in wickedness (Isaiah 14:17, Isaiah 47:10). Hence again proved it’s not a Babylon.

10) Babylon has influenced the other nations of the earth to partake in her fornication. They are drunk with the wine of her fornication. They are filled with God’s wrath as they partake in fornication which is adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, sexual sins etc. and also idol worship. Worshiping things outside and contrary to the Lord (Jeremiah 51:7). So Again Catholic Church does not have these qualities. Catholic Church teaches adultry,homosexuality,abortions and all sexual sins are sins and are always violations of divine and natural law.(Isaiah 13:19).

11 Revelation 18:2 says Babylon is the dwelling place for demons, a haunt for every unclean spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast. The Catholic Church is a house of God, Guided by The Holy Spirit Filled with the Glory of the Lord (1Kings 8:10-13) which is Offering Sacrifice All Day, Every Day, and in Every Place( Malachi 1:11) and also its the Church of the Saints.( Psalms 149:1 )

12. Catholic Church or Rome or Vatican is not an economically superficial nation (Jeremiah 50:37, 51:13; and Revelation 18:3, 19) not populated by “mixed and mingled people” (Jeremiah 50:37) and not a land “that dwells upon many waters” (Jeremiah 51:13) and certainly its not a country that has defeated mighty kingdoms through war (Jeremiah 50:23, 51:20-21).
13. Catholic Church or Rome or Vatican does not have mighty military power (Jeremiah 51:53) has not turned away from the God of Israel nor rejoiced in opposing him and his chosen people Israel (Jeremiah 50:11, 24, 29, 38).

14.Since Babylon is noted for A Wealthy Nation(Rev 18:17,19), An Educated Nation(Jer 50:35) Abundant in Natural Resources(Jer 51:13) A Nation Full of Idols(Jer 50:38) Has a Space Program(Jer 51:53), Lots of Whirring(Is 18:1) So, for those that insist that Babylon MUST be Catholic Church or Rome or Vatican to fulfill Bible prophecy, I say it does not fit the above Scriptures.Since its not bordered on many waters , not the world’s military hammer , not full of wise men , not a mingled people nation ,not the world’s largest importer , not a new/young nation, certainly does not have plenty of water and certainly doesn’t take space shots .
