“And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate…And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.” (Daniel 11:30-31)
The army of Clovis, the emperor of France, via the direction of their general and king Clovis, converted to Catholic Christianity and began making the first ever war against commandment-keeping Christians. When this war commenced between the Visigoths and their army and the French emperor and his army, the Visigoths subdued Clovis twice under them. Clovis’, heralded by ancient Catholic historian Gregory of Tours as a “new Constantine”. Gregory portrays the war as a campaign against those who rejected the belief of a Trinitarian three-in-one God. His account indicates that prior to the battle, Clovis gave gifts to the Catholic church and made appeals to a dead saint, Martin of Tours, for which he was rewarded with victory, blessed with miracles, and honoured with an imperial consulship by Anastasius I.
France was the beginning of the domination by the Catholic church over the kingly powers in Europe. Being the first church/state union in Europe, France received the name “the eldest daughter of the church”, and from this time, all of the kings of Europe began to bow the knee to the Bishop of Rome, the Pope. The bloodshed of Bible-believing Christians began by the king of France. This continued for “a thousand two hundred and ninety days”, prophetically, 1290 years, until the church and state union of the Papal church over Europe was officially dissolved by the deadly wound to it’s state power. But prophecy tells us “the deadly was healed, and all the world wondered after the beast.” (Rev. 13:4) Now the eldest daughter of the church is returning to her ancient baptismal vows. The president of France went to the Vatican, desiring to mend the relationship between the Catholic church and the country of France. As a gift, the Pope gave President Macron a medal of Martin of Tours, a dead saint made especially famous in France after Clovis’ prayed to him for victory. The connection is obvious.
Reported from The Tablet, a UK News Source, describes a recent meeting between Pope Francis and President of France, Emmanuel Macron:
“Macron has attracted criticism from French secularists after calling for the country’s divided Church and state to ‘mend’ their ‘damaged’ relationship
Pope Francis and Emmanuel Macron held talks for nearly an hour at the Vatican this morning… after the French president recently made overtures to the Catholic Church in his country.
Following the unusually lengthy meeting, which took place in the library at the Apostolic Palace, the two men showed warm body language, with Macron placing a hand on the Pope’s shoulder before kissing him on both cheeks.
Francis then held the French leader’s arm and shook his hand vigorously while smiling broadly as he said farewell…
The official document published by the Vatican read: “During the friendly meeting we have confirmed the good bilateral relationship between the Holy Seat and France. We have discussed, with reference to the role of the Church, the contribution of religion to achieve the common good for the whole country”…
There has also been an “exchange of opinions on some conflicts, particularly in the Middle East and in Africa”. Sources from the Vatican added: “There has been a discussion on the future perspectives of the European project”.
At the end of the private part of the audience, Macron gave Francis a rare copy of Goerges Bernanos 1936 book “Diary of a Country Priest”.
The Pope handed Macron… a medal depicting St Martin of Tours…
Speaking to journalists at a press conference on 26 June in Paris, Macron said he spoke “very freely” with the Pope during the meeting of almost one hour. He added: “We touched on subjects of misunderstanding or incomprehension between France and the Catholic Church in recent years, on which society has evolved and a respectful debate is needed for each side to legitimately find its place…”
About the prolonged length of their meeting, Macron said: “We didn’t look at our watches. It’s like that when talks are intense.”
French officials stressed that Macron’s visit was strictly Vatican-related…
During a speech to Church dignitaries in April, Macron attracted criticism from French secularists after calling for the country’s notoriously divided Church and state to ‘mend’ their ‘damaged’ relationship.”
