This is big news. It is not every day you see something that you can definitely say is prophecy fulfilling right before your eyes, but what happened on January 21, 2014 with the pope sending a message to charismatic leaders in America, and they responding enthusiastically that “the protest is over” (meaning they are willing to go back to the Mother of Harlots), is amazing to see.
I highly recommend everyone to study this out, to see what the talking points are, how the enemy of all truth and righteousness is making his words softer and smoother than ever.
The following is from Kenneth Copeland’s blog:
On Jan. 21, 2014, Kenneth Copeland Ministries was blessed to receive a personal video message from Pope Francis. The attendees of KCM’s annual Ministers’ Conference were greatly inspired when Bishop Tony Palmer (charismatic Anglican), a longtime friend of Pope Francis, presented the pope’s greeting and a message he prepared specifically for them!
Kenneth Copeland’s Response to Request by Pope Francis:
Recently, I received a message from Pope Francis in which he asked that, as a ministry and part of the Body of Christian believers, we pray for him. In 1 Timothy 2:2, the Bible teaches that we are to pray “for all that are in authority.” It is scriptural that we do so. And, therefore, it is our duty to honor the Pope’s request and, as a Body of believers, join our faith with his by coming together in unity and agreeing with him in his quest, and for what is in his heart: the unity of the Body of Christ. So, in obedience to our Lord and His Word, we join our faith with that of Pope Francis as we pray with and for him, that he will receive the righteous desire of his heart, according to the words of Jesus in Mark 11:24: “That whatsoever things you desire when you pray, believe you receive them, and you shall have them.” Our desire, along with that of Pope Francis, is in the fourth chapter of the book of Ephesians: “Till we all come in the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God unto a mature man unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” This is very important to us all, as the Body of Christ.
Join with us in prayer for unity in the Body of Christ throughout the world!
Jesus is Lord!

Pastor Doug Batchelor has put up an excellent dissection of what this means. He makes it clear that this is a call for Protestants to lay down their arms, and to come back into the “loving” fold of the Roman Catholic Church. It is so scary to see the many Protestant attendees clap and agree with the pope’s request!!
Surely we are near the end times, when Satan will work with all deceivableness of unrighteousness.
Ellen White in Testimonies vol.5 p451:
By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violation of the law of God, our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near.
