What Is Truth? - What Hath The LORD Answered Thee, What Hath The LORD Spoken Unto Thee?
"Pilate therefore said unto Him, Art thou a king then? JESUS answered, Thou sayest that I am a king, To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth My Voice. [!] Pilate saith unto Him, What is truth?" John 18:37,38

"Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
"Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
"Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect form the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
"Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away."
"And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
"And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
"And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
"If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
"And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."
. Did you witness the pervasively idolatrous reception/worship of John Paul II at the 2002 World Youth Conference in Canada. The aged, frail, bowed, infirm...Roman Catholic hierarchical leader was idolized beyond imagination by the throng of predominantly young people, like one young woman who gushed, "He was so healthy, so energetic!!!" Her amazingly fantastic (one might say fanatical) description of John Paul II flew in the face of reality with such extremeness as to have been uttered by a burlesque comedian, but instead seemed to express the sentiments of multitudes of young and not so young worshippers, yes, I mean worshippers!
The spell that the throng of young were in was very deeply disturbing. The reception given the old leader with one foot in the grave, was only befitting for the reception of the Lord of Glory Jesus Christ himself, or for God the Father, but for man, sinful, frail man, it was absolutely obscene, and exceedingly unholy!
If an old (old beyond his years), debilitated, decrepit...leader like John Paul II, devoid of anything approaching a charismatic, exciting performance, much less anything supernatural and miraculous, could cast such a phenomenal spell over vast multitudes, and principally comprised of notoriously disrespectful, irreverent, bored, unworshipful, Generation X youngsters at that, how difficult will it be for the satanically supernaturally empowered antichrist and his satanically supernaturally empowered helpers to captivate and enslave vast multitudes, including older people, e.g., older Russian Orthodox Catholics, Eastern Orthodox adherents, and Roman Catholics including multitudes of South American, Central American, Mexican, and Asian Roman Catholics...who are accustomed for so many decades to blindly, ignorantly, unthinkingly, unquestioningly following the orders of their leaders (without considering, much less examining, what the Lord teaches in the Holy Bible)?!
The end is not far away! It really isn't. It is practically at the doors, practically at hand!
Poland's Karol Wojtyla, aka "Pope John Paul II," who served as Archbishop of Krakow, Poland, before being elected in Sept. 1978 to take the place of "Pope John Paul I," who died within one month of being elected to take the place of "Pope Paul VI," has set many truly disastrous precedents during his tenure as Pontiff, we can expect his successor to make John Paul II's precedents pale in comparison to the evils he will introduce.
Additionally, John Paul II has been inundated with a reception at least as idolatrous on his visit to his home country of Poland, during August 2002. Young people who were not alive when he was made pope, refer to him as the only great leader, world leader, hero.... Incredible but true, Generation X young people caught up in utter adulation of the aged infirm pontiff in the abominable Roman robes, how can such things be, it truly is a sign of things to come, very shortly, i.e., for decades now, prevailing "wisdom" has declared that in order to gain even the fleeting attention of young people, much less enough of their attention and respect for them to listen to what you have to say, you have to be one of them, you have to appease them, please them, entertain them, and in fact entertain them in the most fast-moving, frenetic, technologically up to date, preferably spectacular way possible; indeed, the Advertising industry has undergone a revolution akin to a quantum leap or a seismic shift solely to try to learn how to reach and successfully market to the Gen-Xers. Yet, old John Paul II can barely walk or talk, is known for his prohibition of contraceptives and abortion...and he elicits utter adulation from multitudes of young, including the notoriously anti-establishment, exceedingly fickle Generation X-ers, absolutely amazing, and stunning, to witness such an orgy of prolonged, protracted, worship of an old man who cannot work miracles nor evidence anything remotely approaching supernatural wonders.
The anti-christ will have a cakewalk with the youth generation, whether with those now reverencing and even blindly worshipping such authority figures as John Paul II, or those that are so fond of body-piercing, mutilation, tattooing, and most anything that defaces and defames their images fashioned in the likeness of God (in order to desecrate them and deny any claim God can make to them).
A comparatively youthful and very vital John Paul II, from many years ago.
