Pastor Ovadal mentions the pope's attire, such as his white robe, triple crown and red slippers. He also mentioned the colors purple and scarlet, worn by the cardinals, and sometimes we might observe, by the pope himself, when performing the mass. I looked these things up on Google images and it made me shudder, especially when I saw the golden cup in his hand. His triple crown is decked out with gold and precious stones, and a lot of catholic prayer beads and necklaces are made of pearl as well. The whole papal palace and system is decked out with lavish riches of gold, and precious jewels. I know that even though in Revelation 17:4-5, the Spirit may be ultimately referring to deeper things than just outward adornments, yet it is amazing to see how on the surface, or on the forehead as it were, the great whore shows herself to be what she is. What blindness and darkness in which the world lies that they cannot perceive it. The devil deceives the whole world and only those whose names are written in the book of life can see these things, which to them are manifest on their face, and yet hidden from the rest. Thank the Lord for His word, which is so accurate and which strengthens our faith in Him. The word of God is true and sharper than any two-edged sword!

Important: SermonAudio tags will appear on some of the messages found on this web site. We are not in any way affiliated with SermonAudio! Please read the following explanation.
Those who listen to archived sermons or Heart of the Matter programs on this web site will notice that, currently, when they download some of those sermons and HOM programs that a SermonAudio logo appears. This is because Pilgrims Covenant Church messages were for a number of years posted at SermonAudio. But due to the increasingly deep compromise of SermonAudio in posting sermons from ministers unfaithful either in doctrine or practice or both, and also on account of the many corrupt conferences advertised on SermonAudio, we withdrew from SermonAudio. However, I did not realize when posting our sermons and programs on that site on a page for which we paid that the management was tagging our MP3 files with the logo of SermonAudio. We are working to remove the SermonAudio logo from all of the sermons and programs posted on this site which were previously posted at SermonAudio. However, this takes much time; so we felt it important to post this explanation and also this warning concerning SermonAudio, a web site with many sound ministers, but also many which are corrupting the Lord's blood-bought church.
