The news item linked to above is another striking confirmation of what we covered in our video, Is the World about to End?, concerning the meaning and fulfillment of Revelation 13:15. The video explains that the fulfillment of Revelation 13:15 is found in video footage of John Paul II (the Antichrist).
The Greek word for ‘life’ in Revelation 13:15 is pneuma. It means ‘breath’ or ‘animation’ or ‘spirit.’ The video Is the World about to End? explains that since St. John was completely unfamiliar with video technology, if he saw the image/icon of John Paul II (the Antichrist and the beast who was wounded) being venerated during a ceremony that also featured video footage of John Paul II moving and speaking, he would describe it as:
“And it was allowed to give life/animation/spirit [pneuma] to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak…” (Revelation 13:15)
St. John would (and did) describe it thus because the image of the beast would appear to him to have ‘life’ or ‘animation’. It would seem to be alive. It would move, etc. in a way he had never seen or imagined. That was fulfilled at the ‘beatification’ of Antipope John Paul II, which featured many video screens that projected John Paul II’s image and voice, as well as images from his life, around St. Peter’s Basilica. It will also be fulfilled at the ‘canonization’, which is simply another part of one process (initiated by Benedict XVI) to get people to honor/worship the image of the Antichrist. It should also be noted that the formal veneration of the Antichrist (John Paul II) and his image doesn’t hold its monumental and apocalyptic significance only because of who John Paul II was and what he did. That of course is a major part of its significance, but the formal veneration of his image also represents the acceptance and the veneration of the entire Vatican II apostasy and all its evils.
