Pope Francis has been successfully executing the Vatican's well-defined strategy to create a one world religion. Now he is using his global influence and power to establish a one world government. During a speech on May 8th before the members of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences. Pope Francis demanded that a new "supranational, legal constituted body" enforce climate change policies and other worldwide "threats." He advocated a policy of decreased national sovereignty and increased global unity, claiming that planetary problems are exacerbated by "an excessive demand for sovereignty on the part of States." The pope is trying to convince the world that our only hope for peace, prosperity, and planetary salvation is to surrender our national sovereignty.

Regarding the hot topic of immigration, the pope declared that nationalism is too easily twisted into a doctrine repugnant to the welcoming of immigrants. In other words, a global government is necessary to ensure the welfare of migrants and the "universal common good." According to Francis, our only hope for planetary peace and progress is to make room for "international organizations" to develop into governing bodies, supplanting the "state interests". He said that if we hope to save the planet we must accept that we are one people and unite to create "a space for dialogue and meeting for all countries in a spirit of mutual respect."

Pope Francis warned attendees that sovereign nations attempting to govern themselves will find they are unable to protect their populations from the myriad menaces abroad in the world. He said, "The nation-state is no longer able to procure the common good of its populations alone." Rather than calling for the outright abolition of Nation States, the Pope insisted they all be subjected to external, global governing authorities. Francis went on to deride nations that have border walls.

Avro Manhattan, a critic of the Holy See, said, "The Vatican diplomacy is so influential and can exert such great power in the diplomatic-political field because it has at its disposal the tremendous machinery of a spiritual organization with ramifications in every country of the planet."

Many people are unaware of the political power of the papacy. Vatican City is a sovereign nation and the pope is the head of state. He can negotiate with other nations and enact laws with the same kind power as prime ministers and presidents. For centuries the Vatican has been a major influence in European political affairs. Its history is filled with political intrigue and the rise and fall of government leaders and national powers. Presidents, prime ministers and royalty from all over the world have traveled to Rome seeking an audience with the pope to seek his counsel and discuss matters of great political, economic, and social importance.

We know from the study of bible prophecy there will be a false prophet and world ruler who will usher in a time of "peace and prosperity" on the earth. The apostle John describes the ruler of this vast empire as having power and great authority, given to him by Satan (Revelation 13:2), He will receive worship from "all the world" and have authority over "every tribe, people, language and nation" (13:3-7). From this description, it is logical to assume that this person is the leader of a one-world government which is recognized as sovereign over all other governments.
