SID:  Now, now who says that?

TOM:  Well he could give you some of the names.

SID:  Okay— just comment on the statement he made.

CRIS:  I mean there have been various Catholic scholars who have seen the final pope in this role. One was a Jesuit way back then, Lacunza, Cardinal Manning is another one. O’Connor gave that homily in the 1980’s in New York where he predicted that the Roman church would go apostate and become the seat of the anti-Christ. Now one of the reasons why I think this final pope is the false prophet, is if you look in the Book of Revelation in chapter 13 it talks about 2 beasts. The first beast is the anti-Christ, the second beast is the false prophet. When it describes the false prophet the language is “he has horns like a lamb yet speaks like a dragon.” Now I think we all would recognize “like a lamb” would be trying to identify someone as, that has a Christian identity, at least an appearance like a lamb. The Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world. Horns in apocalyptic literature is a generally a symbol of power. So here we have a powerful Christian leader who speaks like a dragon. And I think we all know who the dragon is in the Book of Revelation. So to me that’s really identifying this false prophet as a pope, I think. I mean if you ask anyone in the world, you know from all cultures, who’s the most powerful Christian leader, you know worldwide I think your majority answer’s going to be the pope, you know even if they’re not Catholic. So I think that the Book of Revelation has, has pretty much given us a really strong hint that’s what we should expect.

SID:  Okay, we’re not going to speculate on the next pope  because we’re doing this before he’s announced. Next question.

QUESTIONER #6:  Well, before I got saved miraculously I was praying that God would please give me a sign and if I could be forgiven because I thought I had went over the 490  times, you know, and I was deceived to think “no way I could be forgiven.” And I saw a light like you’re talking about. It come in my room and it changed me, something happened. And anyways I’ve really been drastically just seeking God, seeking His word, reading, and whatnot. And over these past years I’ve seen some, met some Christians who practice, I mean Catholics who are practicing that, you know, religion, that they pray to Mary and go, you know, before a priest and confess their sins. And I would say to them according to the word, it says that we only have one high priest in the Book of Hebrews, and says there is only one mediator between God and man, and he is Christ Jesus. And, so if someone does, if they take their last breath and they never change from that and they continue to go through the rituals of praying to Mary or going into a church and confessing their sins before a priest, would that person enter into the kingdom of heaven?

SID:  Well that’s an easy question to answer. I’ll take that. Jesus said there’s no other name in which a man must be saved but the name of Jesus. And so therefore they could be in some heretical doctrine, but if they believe Jesus died, rose from the dead, and by His stripes they are healed and forgiven, then they go to heaven. Next question.

Our Guest Sandra Teplinsky

SID:  As far as I’m concerned, if you do not understand the Biblical position, God’s heart for the Jew in Israel in the Last Days, you will go into further and further heresy. It’s that critical. Now there’s something called “Replacement Theology.” And I’ve asked an attorney, a Jewish believer in the Messiah, someone that has spent many years in the land of Israel, Sandra Teplinsky, to explain, let’s just start with basics, Sandy. What is replacement theology?

SANDY:  Like its name implies replacement—

SID:  Excuse me, can you see that she is an attorney…” like its name implies—”

SANDY: (Laughing)

SID:  (Laughing)  I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist, okay?

SANDY:  I get it all the time.

SID: Oh, okay. (laughing)

SANDY:  Replacement Theology is the mistaken, in fact, extremely erroneous belief that the Church has replaced Israel in God’s heart and in God’s purposes and plans.

SID:  Well, how did something so Jewish, the first believers in Jesus were all Jews. How in the world did it evolve to that?

SANDY:  Well Jewish believers in the first century were doing their job very well. They spread the Gospel abroad and before long—

SID:  I read about them. In the Bible! They did well. I wish the Church would do as well today!

SANDY:  And before long Gentile believers vastly outnumbered Jewish believers simply because there were many, many more Gentiles in the world than there are Jews.

SID:  Sure.

SANDY:  And so as Gentile believers increasingly populated the church as God intended and as it was His heart and is His heart to do, slowly over time, although not that slowly, the traditional Jewish understanding of interpreting the scriptures, of worshipping the God of Israel became replaced by a more “user-friendly” pagan perspective that would draw in more non-Jews and of course those were the people to whom the non-Jewish Gentile believers were reaching out to. And so there was a desire to incorporate elements of the culture that were actually anti-God and anti-Biblical which over time became part of the institutionalized church.

SID:  You know a lot of Christians don’t understand this, but there actually was, as I understand, a distancing from anything of the Hebraic culture which then caused the understanding of the Bible to be askew.

SANDY:  Sadly, that was the case and intentionally so. Early Church Fathers intentionally attempted to distance themselves from anything Jewish, again partly because it was contrary to the common culture of the day, but also because this notion of what’s called “deicide” set in, which is the belief that the Jewish people were responsible for killing Christ.

SID:  You know a lot of you don’t understand this, but I understand it, because as a young Jew growing up before I knew the Messiah even, I had someone say to me I was a “Christ killer.” I bet you had that too.

SANDY:  Many times.

SID:  But it started way back then.

SANDY:  It started way back then which gives us a clue as to the importance and significance of the Jewish people and Israel in God’s plans, that the enemy would go to such extremes and such lengths in order to distort scriptural understanding by the Gentile world.

SID:  You know the Jewish historian Neander says by the turn of the first century there were approximately a million Jewish believers in Jesus and—they just, I guess as the church turned away from anything Jewish, Judaism turned from, away from anything Christian, and that’s what Paul was talking about, there was a middle wall of separation between the two.

Our Guest Stone Perry

Perry: Let me show you something else here. I’m going to give you the apocalyptic vision which John saw, I’m going to explain it to ya. Then I’m going to show you where it is found in the Old Testament. Here again, um, this is something in all, in all the years I heard the Book of Revelation preached I just thought it was something John saw that was brand new, nobody saw any of it before, blah, blah, blah. Then I found out, wait a minute. Here it is. This is a, a real key for you to understand. What John is doing in, is John is showing you a summary of what all the Old Testament prophets predicted about the time of the end. Okay? Now when you understand that, the Book starts making sense. In other words, all those judgments are not new. These Old Testament prophets saw them coming. So what he does is he says okay— you’ve been reading what Ezekiel saw, you’ve been reading what Zechariah saw, you’ve been reading what Daniel saw, you’ve been reading about all this Isaiah the prophets for years. What God’s going to do now is show you how all that fits together. You got it now? Now when you— when that little nugget hits your mind all of a sudden you say, “Oh my goodness, that’s it!” So in other words, all of these judgments are nothing new. They were already predicted. All he does is give you the order of how they’re going to happen. He’s given you an order. See the prophets would get a, a picture. Oh my goodness! The sun’s going to be dark, the moon’s going to turn to blood— this and the other thing, and oh my God, the earth’s going to shake out of its place. And this one over here would talk about I saw the rivers dry up. But they don’t know when it’s going to happen. So John says it’s going to happen in a 7 year period and let me give you the order of it. Whooo! That’s good! Oh, my Lord! All right. Let me give you, let me give you the vision and I’m going to show you where it’s found in the Old Testament. Okay? First of all in Revelation chapter 12 and 1 there is a woman who is clothed with the sun, moon and stars. That original revelation is Joseph’s dream in Genesis 37:9 through 10. You can read it, read the two and it’s very parallel. So how do we interpret that woman? Who is that woman? Well people make that woman the church. Well if she’s the church who is she travailing with that’s going to rule the world with a rod of iron? Some say it was Mary and that Mary was travailing with Jesus. Actually the picture is Israel, who gave birth to the Messiah because if you keep reading the woman gets persecuted. All right? And that’s Israel being persecuted in the Tribulation. So in other words you go back to Joseph’s dream. He plainly will tell you that woman represents Israel. And it’s very simple, because the Bible interprets itself. I don’t want to say it’s simple— it took me about 3 years to put all this together. So it’s not, it’s not, it’s not as simple maybe as I’m, I’m  making it now (laughing). It’s, it’s simple once you break the Code I guess you could say. In the Book of Revelation chapter 11, verse 2, 13 and 5, it’s 42 months. It’s a 42 month timeframe, and it even says one place in the Book of Revelation “time, times and dividing of time.” Time is a year, times is two years, dividing of time is half a year. That’s where you get 42 months, 3 and a half years.
