Chinese President Xi Jinping Orders Chinese Christians- ‘Stop Worshipping Jesus- Worship Me And I Will Heal Your Sickness And Rescue You From Poverty’

Chinese President Xi Jinping has ordered Christians in China to stop worshipping Jesus and start worshipping him instead, saying that their saviors are ‘General Secretary Xi and the Communist Party’ according to a recent report:

Thousands of villagers in southeastern China have reportedly been called to replace their posters of Jesus Christ and other religious imagery with photographs of Chinese President Xi Jinping if they want assistance with poverty and illness relief.

The South China Morning Post reported that the suggestion by Chinese authorities to replace posters of Jesus with Xi hearkens back to the “personality cult” era of Chairman Mao Zedong, the founder of the People’s Republic of China.

It noted that Xi has made it his target to end poverty by 2020, with government officials visiting Christian families in poverty-stricken towns to convince them to fall in line with the Communist Party’s policies as a way to solve their material problems.

Qi Yan, chairman of the Huangjinbu people’s congress, explained the government’s initiative: “Many poor households have plunged into poverty because of illness in the family. Some resorted to believing in Jesus to cure their illnesses.”

“But we tried to tell them that getting ill is a physical thing and that the people who can really help them are the Communist Party and General Secretary Xi.”

Qi further called Christians “ignorant” for believing that God is their savior.

The Huangjinbu township distributed more than 1,000 portraits of Xi, with several families reportedly choosing to hang them in their homes.

The official later insisted that the Communist Party has not been saying that all religious icons need to be taken down, and claimed that it supports the freedom of belief.

One resident of another township in Yugan revealed that officials have been urging believers to remove religious artifacts from their homes as well.

“Some families put up gospel couplets on their front doors during the Lunar New Year, some also hang paintings of the cross. But they’ve all been torn down,” the resident said.

He added that some believers did not do so voluntarily.

“They all have their belief and, of course, they didn’t want to take them down. But there is no way out. If they don’t agree to do so, they won’t be given their quota from the poverty-relief fund,” the man said.

The Communist Party held its 19th National Party Congress in October, which did not present a clear successor to Xi, meaning the president is set to rule for years to come.

Moreover, Xi’s name and ideology was enshrined into the Constitution, elevating him to the level of Mao.

Bob Fu, president of persecution watchdog China Aid, which documents the increasing crackdown of Christians in the country, told The Christian Post in a phone interview at the time that the developments can only be concerning for believers.

Fu noted that the “clear signal” from the week-long congress is that the atheistic party will seek to “exert total control over all areas of life” of Chinese citizens, including churches.

UCANews, a Catholic news source reporting from Asia, noted that Chinese propaganda is lionizing Xi as a “fearless nationalist leader, a strongman who can restore China to its ‘rightful place’ in the world and particularly the region.”

“As well as upgrading Xi’s image, there has been the crushing of perceived enemies. These are usually groups or people who simply want to change the system to be more inclusive and look after citizens and their rights, nothing more,” it added. (source)

    A precursor to the Antichrist – more to come before THE son of perdition is revealed.

      Definitely an Antichrist in his right – and a typical Staljínist: in their times, people were made to “think” that Stáljin (USSR), Mao (Red China), Pol Pot (Cambodia – Kampuchea), Hoxha (Albania) and Brjézhñev (USSR) in addition to the Kim dynasty of North Korea (Kim Il-Sung, Kim Jong-Il and now Kim Jong-Un) were “gods”. Each and every time one of them would die (unless previously deposed – as happened with Pol Pot), mass hysteria was inflated to be extra-big where the transportation networks of the countries affected had to be largely suspended…

      So now, Xi Jinping wants to likewise be “deified” à la Jenghiz or Kublai Khan, Caligula, Nero or Domitian (in addition to the names mentioned above). Let him: we know what he’ll experience at the Last Judgement. The BIG question is: has he blasphemed the Holy Ghost already? [If he has, no prayer for him will do any good…]

    Let me be honest: I’m nowhere near to being as knowledgeable as this subject requires. All I really happen to have is a reasonable knowledge of history, especially of major events over the past 4-6 centuries (and even then there enough holes in it to make a sieve), in addition to what I’ve accumulated over the so-far 55 years of my life in terms of reading the Bible (particularly relative to the end-times).

    I thought that blaspheming the Holy Ghost was to publicly lie about God and His Nature &/or His Deeds. [E.g., when the Pharisees and Sadducees claimed that Christ was casting demons out of people by the power of Satan (literally Beelzebub) instead of God: that’s when He Warned about blaspheming the Holy Ghost (St. Matthew 12:24-37). This (lying about God) is obviously a major sin (in my understanding) which, if not repented in time, can be reckoned as blaspheming the Holy Ghost.

    Otherwise, your question is somewhat vague. I’m not sure, for example, if I’d be reckoned as a dispensationalist-millennialist: all I’ll dare do is state what I know.

    As per the Bible, after THE Antichrist is manifested and plainly fights God while persecuting Christians throughout the whole world (aided by the technology, including robots, which is already largely available), will be defeated just as he approaches the brink of exterminating not only all Mankind but all LIFE upon this planet (as is forecast in St. Matthew 24). It’s at that point, when the overwhelming majority of people will be least aware of God and His Only-Begotten Son, that Christ’s Second Coming will happen, preceded by the Seven Last Plagues after the Two Beasts have made their appearance. Once the Devil and his demons are imprisoned in the Bottomless Pit (apparently the core of the earth), Christ WILL Reign with His Saints over the earth, giving this planet a 1,000-year era of peace where He Will Show how life and everything else was intended to be when He and His Father Created everything. [After the Blessed Millennium, Satan will have one last chance to repent – and will squander it by corrupting everything. This will be followed by the Last Judgement and the Creation of the New Earth and the New Jerusalem.]

    We know, thanks to the work of Mr. Walid Shoebat, that the beasts feature Islam as the “official religion”, with the Ottoman Empire likely becoming the actual manifestation of the Sea-Beast (the one which arises first). Who’s going to be the Land-Beast is another question: if this man Xi Jinping continues like this, it’s possible that China (especially with its technology) might be such a power.

    I’ll agree that the Antichrist isn’t likely to be a pure Marxist-style Communist atheist: he’ll either be a Moslem or somebody synthesising Islam (plus some paganism) with Marxism. [Obama was just one such villain.]

    As to the Fatima apparitions and attendant miracles, I’ve heard and read some things (obviously) about certain prophecies that have been fulfilled (e.g., the shooting of Pope John-Paul II) plus others that yet need to come to fruition.

    Naturally, this can only be a start. Let it serve as an initiation point for the discussion which is sure to follow…

    This is where my reply to you will be posted. For now, please let this stub tell you that I’ve not forgotten you and that your points are being seriously considered.

    • Matt

      As noted above, I don’t make any definitive statements regarding the End Times other than what the Catholic Church has formerly declared. The rest is open to speculation to me. I do appreciate you taking the time to share your own take on these matters.

      Yes, the Bible does say that God hardened Pharaohs ‘after’ Pharaoh hardened his own heart. It doesn’t say “God forced Pharaoh.” There is an important and distinct difference between saying “hardened” and “forced.” Pharaoh chose his own actions from start to finish.

      For example, has your heart ever “hardened” toward a loved one in your lifetime and you wanted to assault them verbally or physically yet refrained? How did you refrain despite having a hardened heart toward them in that moment? Freewill.

      Pharaoh technically speaking, still had freewill and could’ve chosen to reject the hardness in his heat at any time, even the hardness God instilled there as a consequence of Pharaoh’s rebellion.

      Quotes from the Catechism article on sin:

      “1859 Mortal sin requires full knowledge and complete consent. It presupposes knowledge of the sinful character of the act, of its opposition to God’s law. It also implies a consent sufficiently deliberate to be a personal choice. Feigned ignorance and hardness of heart133 do not diminish, but rather increase, the voluntary character of a sin.”

      “1864 “Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.”136 There are no limits to the mercy of God, but anyone who deliberately refuses to accept his mercy by repenting, rejects the forgiveness of his sins and the salvation offered by the Holy Spirit.137 Such hardness of heart can lead to final impenitence and eternal loss.”

      “1865 Sin creates a proclivity to sin; it engenders vice by repetition of the same acts. This results in perverse inclinations which cloud conscience and corrupt the concrete judgment of good and evil. Thus sin tends to reproduce itself and reinforce itself, but it cannot destroy the moral sense at its root.”

      This last paragraph quoted explain God’s hardening Pharaoh’s heart. This is a natural consequence of willful and habitual sin.

      I’ll conclude with a quote from two concluding paragraphs in this article:

      1873 The root of all sins lies in man’s heart. The kinds and the gravity of sins are determined principally by their objects.

      1874 To choose deliberately – that is, both knowing it and willing it – something gravely contrary to the divine law and to the ultimate end of man is to commit a mortal sin. This destroys in us the charity without which eternal beatitude is impossible. Unrepented, it brings eternal death.

      Have a blessed day Higlac.

      Higlac, I did respond to this before the message went “poof.” Let’s try again, in case you didn’t receive that message via email at least (as it was live for a couple of hours or so).

      The End Times is a speculatively area outside of Church dogma. That’s why my greater interest is on the things we can know absolutely thanks to the Magisterium of the Church.

      Note, God said He “hardened Pharaoh’s heart.” He never said that He “forced Pharaoh” to do anything. Pharaoh had freewill from beginning to end. God simply knew how Pharaoh would respond because He is omniscient. Some confuse this to mean we don’t have freewill, when we do.

      To give you an example to illustrate this point. In your lifetime has your heart ever momentarily hardened toward a loved one? I mean really hardened to the point where you wanted to physically assault them (or verbally at least) yet you exercised your better judgement and did not?

      I can tell you from firsthand experience this has happened to me. I’m not proud of these rare instances in my lifetime. But they have happened and I managed to exercise restraint (from assaulting a loved one).

      The moral of the story, we have freewill. The unforgivable since is to “die” with a hardened heart. We have until our death to repent. This is easier said than done, in the same way as loving God with our whole heart and mind and soul is easier said than done. The harder our hearts become through our own rebellion, (sin does harden our heart), the harder this is to do.

      The blessed among the hard of heart, generally hit rock bottom and crash and burn before they find repentance that (because they’ve finally been humbled). In saying that, conversion isn’t a “one and done” moment. It’s a daily struggle and decision, sometimes a moment to moment struggle and decision.

      Praise God for the Sacrament of Reconciliation I’d have no hope with it.

      Thanks for this exchange, I do appreciate it.
