On July 5, 2022, the Vatican declared that there is a significant movement among religious groups to divest investments from the fossil fuel industries. Protestant and Catholic institutions are removing their funds and investments from the fossil fuel sector and have chosen to put money into green projects like investing in renewable energy. The Vatican has put pressure on political and religious leaders to take this action.
The Vatican News reported: “After various calls by the Vatican for divestment from fossil fuels, thirty-five faith institutions with more than $1.25 billion in combined assets, including some Catholic organizations, announce they are divesting from fossil fuel companies.”
The Laudato Si’ Movement, World Council of Churches, Operation Noah, Green Anglicans, GreenFaith, and other organizations complied with the Vatican’s directive. The churches are obeying the Pope’s call to invest instead in alternative renewable energy sources rather than the fossil fuel industries. This is the message that is contained in the Pope’s encyclical, Laudato Si’.
However, it’s not just religious organizations that are being pressured to adopt the climate change policies contained within Laudato Si’. Many governments are adopting climate change initiatives that are in harmony with the spirit of Laudato Si’. 193 nations have already adopted the Paris Climate Agreement that came out in 2015, the same year Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’ was published.
In our society, there is an agenda that is developing. The message of the Pope is reaching an increasing number of countries, organizations, and people. In fact, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops urged members of Congress in a letter sent just last month to enact a $555 billion government spending measure to tackle climate change. By urging the rulers of the earth (Revelation 17:12, 13) to support his Laudato Si’ climate change encyclical, Pope Francis is carrying out his prophetic role. The goal is to eventually compel (Revelation 13:12) the various world leaders to take action and enact religious worship during the mark of the beast crisis.
“And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.” Revelation 13:12. #sda #adventist #adventista
