Today’s Verse: Church of Sweden: Teen Climate Activist ‘Successor’ to Jesus

“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

–Acts 4:12

In Christianity, there is no other like the son of God, Jesus Christ.

Catholics venerate Jesus’ mother, the Virgin Mary, and pray to her for intercession, even though such practice is not in the Bible. In fact, the Bible tells us that there is no one to mediate between us and God other than Jesus Christ.

“For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,”

– 1 Timothy 2:5

There is no successor nor intermediary to Jesus Christ.

“He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,”

– Hebrews 1:3

Jesus has no Lieutenant or second in command. But Christ knew that others would come along and try to claim such a title.

“Jesus answered, ‘See to it that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many’.”

– Matthew 24:4-5

But the worst deception is yet to come. Revelation 13 tells us that “the second beast” is going to perform” great signs.”

Jesus said:

“For false Christ’s and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.”

– Matthew 24:24

Revelation 16:14 tells us that “demonic spirits” are going to “perform signs” and “go out to all the kings of the earth.” This false Christ is going to fool the leaders of the world into believing the beast is the Messiah.

But Revelation 19:20 tells us that this deception won’t last. “The beast was captured along with the false prophet, who on its behalf had perform signs deceiving those who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. Both the beast and the false prophet were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.”

Church of Sweden: Climate Activist Greta Thunberg “Successor” to Jesus

The Church of Sweden, which repeatedly promotes teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg, announced last December that the young girl is a “successor” to Jesus Christ.

The Church of Limhamn, Sweden, wrote in a tweet: “Announcement! Jesus of Nazareth has now appointed one of his successors, Greta Thunberg.” The tweet was dated December 1, 2018.

Just last week, for example, The Church of Sweden Malmö announced it would ring its church bells in conjugation with the Global Climate Strike, of which Thunberg is the leader and face of the movement.

Thunberg spoke to world leaders at the United Nations during the climate summit last week.

The Church Issues a “Prayer for the Climate”

The church posted the following on its website:

“PRAYER FOR THE CLIMATE

In conjunction with the Global Climate Strike, church bells ring and we gather for prayer for the future of the earth. We pray that we believe that man is responsible for nurturing and managing Creation so that children are given the opportunity for a future. We pray that we know that climate change affects the most vulnerable – poor, children and women. We pray that we believe in man’s ability to change and change. Sofia Thesaurus sings songs from Din Bark My Skin – a newly written project about forest garden and sustainable conversion, about healing herbs, tree bark and night black mullet. When the Amazon burns, we gather to fight for Mother Earth together.”

Climate Change and Spiritual Deception

First of all, the Earth isn’t our mother nor something Christians should pray to. God is our father. The first of the Ten Commandments tells us “I am the Lord thy God” and “Thou shall have no other gods before me.”

If we need to pray for anything, it’s for God’s guidance, not for “man’s ability” to change.

Believing that a human is our climate savior is a step in the wrong direction.
