  • 331. Book of Revelation: Is Pope Francis the True Pope or False Prophet? - Part 1

    30:53
    For centuries Heaven has been giving messages to the Catholic Church to prepare its members for an unprecedented crisis: the rise of the False Prophet and a near total collapse of authentic faith within the Catholic Church. Are these warnings being fulfilled now with the papacy of Pope Francis? What would it mean for the Church if Pope Francis were the False Prophet foretold in the Book of Revelation? What will the False Prophet do to the Catholic Church, and are we experiencing the diabolic disorientation now? If so, how does Christ want His Church to respond? Find the answers to these questions and more in this two-part interview with Catholic author and prophecy expert Xavier Reyes-Ayral — famous for his expert analysis on the 3 Days of Darkness. Reyes-Ayral presents information about the False Prophet, what ancient prophecies say, and how Heaven wants Christians everywhere to be ready.HELP US FIGHT THE LIES OF THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND SPREAD THE TRUTH AROUND THE WORLD: https://give.lifesitenews.com SHOP YOUR FAVORITE PRECIOUS METALS WITH LIFESITENEWS: https://stjosephpartners.com/lifesitenewsSHOP ALL YOUR FUN AND FAVORITE LIFESITE MERCH! https://shop.lifesitenews.com/ Connect with us on social media:LifeSite: https://linktr.ee/lifesitenewsJohn-Henry Westen: https://linktr.ee/jhwesten
  • 330. Texas Red Heifers + Third Jewish Temple = Antichrist?

    18:06
    Is the arrival from Texas of five "perfectly red heifers" in Israel a sign of prophecy being fulfilled, a prophecy that foretells the construction of the Third Jewish Temple and the arrival of the antichrist? When these red heifers landed in Israel in September 2022, the event was so controversial that Hamas later used it as a pretext to justify its attacks upon Israel on October 7, 2023. Hamas alleged that the red heifers' arrival into Israel showed the Jews' intent to rebuild their Temple and thus displace and destroy one of Islam's major shrines: the Al-Asqa Mosque, which sits upon the site of the old Jewish Temple. Many saints believed that, once the Jews rebuild their Temple successfully, this would be the occasion for the arrival of the antichrist foretold in Scripture. Is that time upon us now? Watch this episode of the John-Henry Westen Show to learn more about the intent behind the reconstruction of the Jewish Temple and what that means for the world.HELP US FIGHT THE LIES OF THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND SPREAD THE TRUTH AROUND THE WORLD: https://give.lifesitenews.com SHOP YOUR FAVORITE PRECIOUS METALS WITH LIFESITENEWS: https://stjosephpartners.com/lifesitenewsSHOP ALL YOUR FUN AND FAVORITE LIFESITE MERCH! https://shop.lifesitenews.com/ Connect with us on social media:LifeSite: https://linktr.ee/lifesitenewsJohn-Henry Westen: https://linktr.ee/jhwesten
  • 329. Tucker Carlson: 'I Am Not Catholic, but I Am Interested'

    21:14
    Tucker, in a recent interview with Cardinal Gerhard Müller, you said that you’re “interested” in the Catholic Church. While it’s clear that you’re interested in the Catholic Church’s impact on American politics, human nature, and culture worldwide, this video to you is an invitation into true “interest” in the Catholic Church.

  • 328. In-Depth Analysis of The ‘De-Transition’ Movement

    47:10
    Get an inside glimpse into the horrific and destructive world of the transgender agenda like never before, which has left an entire generation of young people mutilated, sterilized, and clinically depressed. Now, Christian journalist Brandon Showalter is exposing the transgender movement by documenting a series of men and women who have escaped the transgender agenda and telling their stories to the world. The de-transition movement is sending alarm bells to all young people, warning them to turn away from the transgender agenda before it also destroys their lives. What Showalter has to report is not suitable for young children, but sadly the transgender agenda is itself targeting them. Responsible pro-life and pro-family adults must get educated on the terrible after effects of the transgender agenda, beginning with Showalter's proof. What Showalter has to report is startling.HELP US FIGHT THE LIES OF THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND SPREAD THE TRUTH AROUND THE WORLD: https://give.lifesitenews.com SHOP YOUR FAVORITE PRECIOUS METALS WITH LIFESITENEWS: https://stjosephpartners.com/lifesitenewsSHOP ALL YOUR FUN AND FAVORITE LIFESITE MERCH! https://shop.lifesitenews.com/ Connect with us on social media:LifeSite: https://linktr.ee/lifesitenewsJohn-Henry Westen: https://linktr.ee/jhwesten
  • 327. Exorcist Assistant Warns Against Doors to the Demonic

    34:02
    Kyle Clement, assistant to well-known exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger, is warning against opening doors to demonic influence by making a chilling observation to the world: the LGBT blessing now allowed in Pope Francis' pro-LGBT document 'Fiducia Supplicans' is flinging the door "wide open." 'Fiducia Supplicans' allows priests to bless LGBT couples living in habitual sin, removing any incentive for them to live chastely. Thanks to 'Fiducia Supplicans,' LGBT couples will find no reason to repent from their LGBT lifestyle, interpreting the blessing as an endorsement of their sin. Without clear moral teaching, LGBT people may never discover the truth about marriage, sexuality, and themselves. The door to this demonic influence must be closed as soon as possible, and clear teaching against 'Fiducia Supplicans' cannot come soon enough.HELP US FIGHT THE LIES OF THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND SPREAD THE TRUTH AROUND THE WORLD: https://give.lifesitenews.com SHOP YOUR FAVORITE PRECIOUS METALS WITH LIFESITENEWS: https://stjosephpartners.com/lifesitenewsSHOP ALL YOUR FUN AND FAVORITE LIFESITE MERCH! https://shop.lifesitenews.com/ Connect with us on social media:LifeSite: https://linktr.ee/lifesitenewsJohn-Henry Westen: https://linktr.ee/jhwesten

    50:41
    Gene Zannetti, founder of Winning Mindset, and Fr. Francesco Giordano, Director of Human Life International’s Rome Office, highlight the importance of private revelations in living one's faith in a world that has lost its sense of God. Zannetti and Fr. Giordano contend that all private revelations should be approached with caution and in the light of long-established Catholic doctrines. How people discern alleged messages from God — whether fact or fiction — is an important part in the journey of faith. Watch now and discover when private messages are from God, as Zannetti and Fr. Giordano lay out the various conditions for prudence when listening to the Holy Spirit as we sort through some of the most extraordinary moments in history.HELP US FIGHT THE LIES OF THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND SPREAD THE TRUTH AROUND THE WORLD: https://give.lifesitenews.com SHOP YOUR FAVORITE PRECIOUS METALS WITH LIFESITENEWS: https://stjosephpartners.com/lifesitenewsSHOP ALL YOUR FUN AND FAVORITE LIFESITE MERCH! https://shop.lifesitenews.com/ Connect with us on social media:LifeSite: https://linktr.ee/lifesitenewsJohn-Henry Westen: https://linktr.ee/jhwesten
  • 325. The Devil's Plan for Godlessness: Communist China

    30:09
    The world's greatest threat to the pro-life movement, freedom of religion, and world stability is entirely man-made: the scourge of communism. Communism is founded on hate, which requires a constant fuel of hatred to sustain itself. Now, Steven Mosher recounts the encounters that come from his horrifying research — coming face-to-face with "absolute evil" — watching perfectly healthy children be murdered in China, only for violating the communist 1-child policy. Mosher minces no words: communism is Satan's diabolical plan to establish godlessness and destroy humanity. Where God creates life, the Devil destroys. In our age, the Devil uses communism more than any other system to achieve destruction and oppression. Millions have died under the hand of communism, and millions more are currently suffering. The pro-life and pro-family movement must stand entirely against communism — even as pro-communist supporters make their way into the West. TO ORDER STEVEN MOSHER'S LATEST BOOK, VISIT: https://bit.ly/4avtZazHELP US FIGHT THE LIES OF THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND SPREAD THE TRUTH AROUND THE WORLD: https://give.lifesitenews.comSHOP YOUR FAVORITE PRECIOUS METALS WITH LIFESITENEWS: https://stjosephpartners.com/lifesitenewsSHOP ALL YOUR FUN AND FAVORITE LIFESITE MERCH! https://shop.lifesitenews.com/ Connect with us on social media:LifeSite: https://linktr.ee/lifesitenewsJohn-Henry Westen: https://linktr.ee/jhwesten

    58:14
    Catholic author Ted Flynn is sounding the alarm about the ‘Divine Reset’ that Heaven is preparing for the world as foretold in the prophecies of Garabandal.
