He is not the first Pope to call for world government of course. The two previous Popes called for the same. They just keep inventing and creating new reasons to pass off as justification for doing so at the cost of individual and or national sovereignty, and all the personal or national liberties associated with them.
This world is increasingly filled with Catholic leaders, and or those heavily influenced by the same. The following link provides info regarding Angela Merkel’s obvious relationship with the papacy and Pope. Being just one example of personal communication between them. The list of world leaders which are either not Catholic themselves, or not in contact with or influenced by the papacy itself is continually growing shorter. The wine of Babylon is being consumed by an ever growing majority of world leaders. https://www.catholic.org/news/international/europe/story.php?id=75439
It is some what of a shame, that such intense efforts by Rome and the Jesuits for so long now, will only end in their complete destruction very shortly after they finally reach their goal. It reminds me of the following scriptures.
Mar 8:34 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it. 36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
The papacy and the Jesuits have worked so very hard and long to finally gain rule over the whole world, yet when they finally realize this goal, they will lose their souls and this world in the destruction coming by the judgments of God. Would to God, that they would be converted, and put that same effort into the salvation of their own souls, and the souls of as many others as possible. Some in the past actually have, and I have no doubt that some more in fact will, before it is all over. They just don't know yet, that God put them where they are right now for this very purpose. Just as Paul himself had no idea of such, while he was persecuting, imprisoning, and killing Christians. God is in control, and I am sure we have not begun to see at all yet, what He still has in store for the coming climax and crisis of this world. Praise His holy name.
