The Bible, and in particular the Book of Revelation, has already explained the reasonfor this. Satan is building his own religious system, a system so close to trueChristianity that the vast majority of professing Christians will be unable to tell thedifference. What is more, this version of Christianity will incorporate numerousdoctrinal and practical elements that will make it acceptable to followers of allreligions. Once it is fully operational it will constitute the One World global religionthat the Enemy will use to usher in his own messiah, a flesh and blood man withsupernatural abilities known as the Antichrist.
The Coming One-World Religion
Unless Catholics recognize that a One-World religion is in formation, and that it iscentral to the rise of the Antichrist, they will not understand the role of the Marianapparitions. These visions, which purport to be of Mary, the earthly mother of Jesus,are actually apparitions by Satan himself in an extremely attractive and beguilingform. Through them he is authenticating the Papacy as the pre-eminent religiousauthority in the world today. The Popes in turn are authenticating the apparitions and publishing Encyclicals that are stealthily elevating the Virgin to the status of agoddess.All religions, even Islam, will acknowledge the sanctified perfection of Mary. She isalready recognized by Islam as the most perfect woman who ever lived. Her standingamong Muslims would increase even more if she was seen to embrace them throughher apparitions and associated messages. There is evidence that this is alreadyhappening.By appearing as the Queen of Heaven and the Goddess of Peace to followers of different religions, she will draw Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists into the broad Catholic fold. Even liberal Protestants, who already accord a special status to Mary,will be strongly disposed to accept the validity of her apparitions by their seeminglysupernatural aspects, the ecumenism and inclusiveness of her message, and her oft-repeated promise to bring world peace.
