Susan DeLemus a New Hampshire state representative was asked about the Pope’s comment towards Donald Trump. New Hampshire state representative commented and spoke biblical truth when she said:
“The pope is the antichrist do your research I’m not sure who the pope truly has in his heart” (News Source)
What the New Hampshire State Representative stated about the pope is sound biblical truth that has been taught and understood for many centuries by true Bible believing Protestants.
One by one the Reformers turned to the prophecies and understood that the Vatican was the beast of prophecy and the seat of popes the antichrist.
The identification of the Papacy as the antichrist was the focal point of the Reformation.
The Ency-clopedia Britannica, 1962 edition, vol. 2, p. 61) tells us very clearly what moved the reformers to start the Protestant Reformation.
These ideas became the dynamic force which drove Luther [and the other Reformers] on in his contest with the Papacy. (Encyclopedia Britannica, 1962 edition, vol. 2, p. 61)
MARTIN LUTHER (1483-1546)(LUTHERAN):
Newsweek reported, “Martin Luther was the first to identify the papacy as such with the Antichrist. At first he discounted the value of John’s Apocalypse. But then he saw in it a revelation of the Church of Rome as the deceiving Antichrist…a view that was to become dogma for all Protestant Churches.
“Luther…proved, by the revelations of Daniel and St. John, by the epistles of St. Paul, St. Peter, and St. Jude, that the reign of Antichrist, predicted and described in the Bible, was the Papacy.”

On August 20, 1520, Luther declared, “We here are of the conviction that the papacy is the seat of the true and real Antichrist.”
Quoted in Froom’s The Prophetic Faith of Our Fathers, Vol. 2
JOHN CALVIN (1509-1564) (PRESBYTERIAN):
“Some persons think us too severe and censorious when we call the Roman pontiff Antichrist. But those who are of this opinion do not consider that they bring the same charge of presumption against Paul himself, after whom we speak and whose language we adopt…I shall briefly show that (Paul’s words in II Thess. 2) are not capable of any other interpretation than that which applies them to the Papacy.

JOHN KNOX (1505-1572) (SCOTCH PRESBYTERIAN):
“That tyranny which the pope himself has for so many ages exercised over the church the very antichrist, and son of perdition, of whom Paul speaks. Source John Knox, The Zurich letters, 199 n.p., n.d.
THOMAS CRANMER (1489-1556) (ANGLICAN):
“Whereof it followeth Rome to be the seat of antichrist, and the pope to be very antichrist himself. I could prove the same by many other scriptures, old writers, and strong reasons.” Source Works by Cranmer, Vol. 1, pp. 6-7
THE WESTMINSTER CONFESSION OF FAITH (1647):
“There is no other head of the church but the Lord Jesus Christ. Nor can the pope of Rome in any sense be head there-of; but is that Antichrist, that man of sin and son of perdition that exalteth himself in the church against Christ and all that is called God.” Source Philip Schaff, The Creeds of Christendom, With a History and Critical Notes, Chapter 25, Sec. 6
It is now time for the world to wake up to the truth of the antichrist before it’s too late.
