Protests against the Pope in Spain are splashy.
Spain actually is an traditional arch-Catholic country (it was the center of the Counter-Reformation against the Protestants).
So, obviously Spain experiences a big change. Maybe some years ago, nobody could consider it possible that the Spanish youth would protest against the Holy Father. Surveys show that Spain is about to become a arch-secular state. Regarding the separation of state and church, the Western Countries are secular for decades, but that even whole populations like the Spanish become secular, is a new occurrence.
Dr. Martin Luther said that according to the Book of Revelation papacy will perish. Finally, the secular powers will no longer protect the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) as they did for centuries; that is epochal.
Read Revelation, Chapter 17:
1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
9 And here [is] the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, [and] the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him [are] called, and chosen, and faithful.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
Maybe in 30 years or so, the RCC will have degenerated to an insignificant sect.
Should we rejoice at the decline of the RCC? It depends. Surely, it is good when an organization which has murdered many true Christians will decline, but what will come after the RCC? After the RCC comes the beast. Being aware of an awful future, we should escape under Jesus’ screen. Jesus is Lord of all lords and King of all kings.
Jesus is Lord-God (Kyrios).
Pray that Jesus gives you a revelation of himself.
Interpretation of Revelation, Chapter 17:
“scarlet coloured beast” means more or less “Europe”, which has it’s roots in the Empire of Charles the Great (Karl der Grosse). Charles the Great accepted that the imperial rule was shifted from Constantinople to him by the pope (this was very presumptuous by the pope). When Charles accepted to be the new Roman Emperor, he accepted that the whore climbed on the back of the beast, which is Europe.
For many centuries, the worldly (secular) powers (Emperors, Kings, democratic governments) have “carried” the Roman Catholic Church (RCC). “Carried” means protected, and the European rulers even submitted to the pope for 666 years.
Now, currently, the multitudes gradually become so corrupt that even the foul whore is too holy for them, and they show public refusal against the whore.
This corrupt multitudes can no longer get ruled by “normal” governments. They need a strict ruler who knows how they work. The ruler of downright sinners must be a downright beast; that is very clear.
On the one hand I am glad that the whore declines which has slayed plenty of true Christians, but one the other hand I am aware that we are about to enter a very dark age, darker than the Middle Ages.
Let us go under the screen of Kyrios Jesus, who will destroy the beast at last.
Correction from February 14, 2018:
I have undergone an evolution since I have drafted the article above. I no longer consider Europe the so-called beast but all nations on earth together under the informal leadership of the USA. Furthermore, I believe that the Roman-Catholic Church (RCC) will not perish until Judgement Day. It is only that the secular powers will prescribe her what she has to teach. The RCC will not be allowed to teach her genuine doctrine but a modified doctrine – it is all about extreme sexual and religious tolerance (when you look at pope Francis, you will notice that he is already preaching the “gospel” of tolerance). I no longer consider the RCC the whore, but the whole mankind save the people who believe in Jesus Christ. The RCC is part or head of a second beast which consists of all religious communities on earth under the informal leadership of the pope. The religious beast collaborates with the secular beast in pursuing one purpose: keeping away the mankind from faith in the God who has made heaven and earth, and the mankind (the whore) rides on the back of the beast (beast can mean only the conglomerate of all nations or the religious and the secular beast joint together because in fact it is one beast with one certain interest) towards abyss while the beast comforts the whore, telling her that the journey would lead towards heaven and not towards hell – it is a very bad, nasty and ugly game. The last religion instead of faith in Christ and his Father (God and the Lamb) will be total materialism – people will degenerate human robots or robot-like humans. Tolerance, the main guideline of behaviour of the bad “gospel”, is necessary for achieving maximum productivity at the workplace where people have to cooperate who are actually religiously and sexually different; truth is sacrificed on the altar of avarice.
