Canonization of popes John Paul II, John XXIII to draw millions to Rome

ITALY-VATICAN-POPE-SAINTS-CANONISATION-WAXEaster services today are expected to kick off a record-breaking week at the Vatican. Two beloved modern popes — John Paul II and John XXIII — are to be canonized at the Vatican next Sunday by Pope Francis. There will be services all week, which could draw the most pilgrims ever to the Catholic capital. John Paul II is remembered for helping to bring down communism and for inspiring a generation of Catholics.

Has the Jewish Persecution begun?

jewsThis final, seven-year period will begin when the Antichrist signs a seven-year treaty with Israel. In fact, the revealing of the Antichrist’s identity, the final merciless persecution of the Jews and Christians during the Great Tribulation, and the return of the Messiah all occur during this last seven-year period. The entire book of Revelation is devoted to the details of this terrifying time. Daniel 9:27    Apocalypse 17:16.  I question some of these time periods but the world is getting tired of defending the Jews.
