All Roads Lead To Rome

The prophecies of Daniel, Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2, and John in Revelation, all declare that Rome is the last beast of prophecy.

It has changed forms over the years, but it is the kingdom that was in power during Messiah’s ministry, and it is the kingdom that will be destroyed by Messiah when He returns.

Satan reigned in the pagan Roman Empire, where he was worshiped through all of their false Gods. He used them to try to destroy the Early Church of Christ, killing millions.

Our Lord caused the Roman Empire to collapse, which made Satan lose his power.

Satan countered by empowering the Roman Catholic Church to rise up in its place.
He used them to burn Bibles and to kill over 50 million saints.

Our Messiah caused the Roman Catholic Church to lose power through the Protestant Reformation, and then when the Pope was taken prisoner in 1798 A.D.

Satan countered by empowering the Jesuits to take control of the Catholic Church. They’re creating a New World Order, where he will be worshiped, and the saints attacked.

Our Messiah will cause the Harlot Church to be burned and desolated, and He will destroy the scarlet beast of the Jesuits.

Let’s see how the prophecies of Daniel, Paul and John, all point to the beast of Rome.

These explanations may be counter to what you’ve been taught, so please pray
to the Holy Spirit for discernment, and read the whole study to see the big picture.

Many people teach that much of Daniel, 2 Thessalonians 2, and most of Revelation is applied to the last few years of history.

Please read through the list to see how they have been fulfilled through the history of Church, and will continue to be fulfilled until Jesus returns.

The prophecies in Daniel, in the epistles of Paul, and in the epistles and Apocalypse of John, are not complete in themselves; but when their separate features are combined, you get the perfect portrait.

Statue_Daniel_250Daniel 2 describes four kingdoms, the last of which would be in power until Jesus returns.

Daniel 2:32 “this image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze

The kingdom of Babylon was represented by the gold head.
Medo-Persia, the silver chest, conquered Babylon.
Greece, the bronze waist, conquered Medo-Persia.

Daniel 2:40 “the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything

The Roman Empire was the most powerful of all, and it conquered and controlled most of the civilized world, trampling people groups that were in its path.

Daniel 2:41-43 “the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay

The Strong’s Hebrew word for both “mixed” and “they shall mingle themselves” is 6151 “arab.”

The clay represents the Arabs, the Muslims, who became the great Ottoman Empire, who worked with the Roman Catholic Church, to control the lands previously occupied by the Roman Empire.  They both killed Christians and Jews, but they have also warred with each other during the Crusades, as they don’t mix well.

Daniel 7 describes the same four kingdoms, but uses the imagery of beasts. 

Daniel 7:4 “The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings. I watched till its wings were plucked off; and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.

Babylon represented by the lion, who had its wings plucked by the Medo-Persian empire, who humbled the mighty Babylonian king.

Daniel 7:5 “And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: ‘Arise, devour much flesh!

Babylon was defeated by Medes-Persia, represented by a bear, because they overwhelmed the enemy with their armies sheer size, which could number over 1 million. One side was stronger than the other, thus it raised up on one side.  It conquered three territories previously held by the Babylonians, thus the three ribs.

Daniel 7:6 “After this I looked, and there was another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird. The beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it.”

Medes-Persia was defeated by Alexander the Great and Greece, represented by a leopard as they conquered quickly due to effective military strategies and the small size of their military units.  Alexander’s four Generals (four wings) helped him conquer, and when he died, the empire was split amongst them (four heads).

Daniel 7:7 “After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns

Greece was defeated by Rome, the fourth beast of Daniel 7, the dreadful and terrible beast that trampled everything in its path, including the Jews and Jerusalem in 70 A.D.

The Roman Empire was different as it killed millions of Christians in Rome, as Satan used them to try to wipe out the Early Church.

When the last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D., the Roman Empire split into 10 civil kingdoms.

Daniel 7:8 “and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots.

Out of the ten kingdoms, the Little Horn of the Roman Catholic Church emerged, which claimed authority over both the civil world and the ecclesiastic world.

The Roman Catholic Church subdued and destroyed three of the ten kingdoms;
the Heruli, Ostrogoths and Vandals; who did not bow down to their authority.

Daniel 7:8 “And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.

The office of the Papacy acts and speaks for the whole body. The Popes spoke pompous words, proclaiming to be God, to be Jesus Christ, and that salvation is only through the Roman Catholic Church, all of which is Antichrist.

Pope Pius IX said “I alone… am the successor of the apostles, the vicar of Jesus Christ. I am the way, the truth, and the life…” (Source: History of the Christian Church, by Henry Charles Sheldon, p. 59.)

Pope Boniface VIII said “We declare, say, define, and pronounce, that it is absolutely necessary for the salvation of every human creature to be subject to the Roman Pontiff.” (Source: Bull “Unam Sanctum,” as cited in “Apostolic Digest, Book V: The Book of Obedience”)

Pope John Paul II said  “Don’t go to God for forgiveness of sins: come to me.” (Source: Los Angeles Times, December 12, 1984.)

Daniel 7:25 “He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.

The Roman Catholic Church persecuted the followers of Christ, during the Dark Ages and the Inquisition.

At the Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D. they changed the calendar to be based on the Sun, not the moon as God ordained in the Bible.   In the Catechism, they removed God’s 2nd Commandment, which forbids idol worship, and divided the 10th commandment into two.

They reigned for 1,260 years, from 538 A.D. when Emperor Justinian gave them power over all churches; until 1798 A.D., when the Pope was taken captive and imprisoned, where he later died.

2 Thessalonians 2 describes the transition of power from Roman Emperors to Roman Popes.

2 Thessalonians 2:3 “for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first

When Emperor Constantine joined the idol worship of pagan Roman with Christianity, it created the beginnings of the Roman Catholic Church. Many Christians compromised their beliefs to be exalted in Rome, after several centuries of severe persecution.
Pure Christianity apostatized into a religion with pagan holidays, idols and theology.

2 Thessalonians 2:3 “and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition

Both of the times that the phrase “son of perdition” is used in the Bible, it refers to someone who claimed to follow Christ, but was really antichrist in their beliefs and actions.  Both Judas and the office of the Papacy have fulfilled this role. So the “son of perdition” is someone who would deceive within the church.

2 Thessalonians 2:4 “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

The temple of God is not a physical Temple, it is the body of Christ. In the name of Christ, the Pope is seated in the midst of the Christian Church, which is the temple of God.

Pope Innocent III said “We may according to the fullness of our power, dispose of the law and dispense above the law. Those whom the Pope of Rome doth separate, it is not a man that separates them but God. For the Pope holdeth place on earth, not simply of a man but of the true God.” (Source: “Decretals of Gregory IX,” Book 1, chapter 3.)

Saint Pope Pius V blasphemed,  “The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth.” (Source: Pope Pius V, quoted in Barclay, Cities Petrus Bertanous Chapter XXVII: 218.)

Pope Leo XIII declared, “We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty.”
(Source: Pope Leo XIII Encyclical Letter, June 20, 1894)

2 Thessalonians 2:7 “For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.”

Up to the beginning of the 4th century, Rome was a pagan city, and the Emperor was the high priest, called the Pontifex Maximus, of its religion.

As long as the Roman Emperor was in power, the Papal Pontifex Maximus could not take power.  The last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D. Shortly thereafter, in 538 A.D., the Roman Catholic Church gained religious and civil power when Eastern Emperor  Justinian issued a decree making the Pope head of all churches.

The antichrist in John’s Epistles can mean “in place of Christ.

And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.” 1 John4:3

The word ‘antichristos’ is the Greek word for Antichrist. Translated into English it means Vice-Christ or Vicar of Christ, which the Pope has claimed as his title.

In 1303 A.D. Pope Boniface VIII said in his infamous Bull ‘Unam Sanctam’, “We declare, assert, define and pronounce to be subject to the Roman Pontiff is to every creature altogether necessary for salvation… I have the authority of the King of Kings. I am all in all, and above all, so that God Himself and I, the Vicar of Christ, have but one consistory, and I am able to do almost all that God can do. What therefore, can you make of me but God?”  Pope Boniface VIII, Papal bull Unam sanctam, 1302 A.D.

Pope Pius X declared, “The Pope is not simply the representative of Jesus Christ. On the contrary, he is Jesus Christ Himself, under the veil of the flesh. Does the Pope speak? It is Jesus Christ who is speaking, hence, when anyone speaks of the Pope, it is not necessary to examine but to obey.Pope Pius X, Evangelical Christendom, Vol. 49, Jan 1. 1895 A.D.,  p. 15, “the organ of the Evangelical Alliance,” published in London by J. S. Phillips.

Pope Pius XII said, “…recognize the Holy, Catholic, Roman Church to be the only true Church of Jesus Christ, outside of which neither sanctity nor salvation can be found. Call them to the unity of the one fold, granting them the grace to believe every truth of our holy faith and to submit themselves to the Supreme Roman Pontiff, the Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth.”  Pope Pius XII, The Raccolta, Benzinger Brothers, Boston, 1957 A.D., No. 626.

The sea beast of Revelation 13 matches up perfectly with the fourth beast of Daniel 7, the Antichrist Roman Catholic Church.

Revelation 13:1 “Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.”

John is showing us that it is the same beast as in Daniel 7, which had ten horns.

A beast in prophecy represents a kingdom power. Water in Bible prophecy represents people, and the Roman Catholic Church rose up out the 10 kingdoms of the fallen Roman Empire. The blasphemous name may be “Vicar of Christ” or “Holy Father.”

Revelation 13:2 “Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.”

John is telling us that the beast would have the characteristics of Greece (leopard), which put education and logic above revelation; Medo-Persia (bear), which put the rule of law above mercy (Dan 6:12); and would speak like Babylon (lion), which was steeped in astrology, and the spirits of the occult. The Roman Catholic Church displays all of these attributes.

The name ‘Vatican’ means ‘divining serpent’ from Latin Vatis=diviner, and can=serpent. It’s not pointing to just one person, it’s pointing to a position.  The President of the United States, the King of England, have all been fulfilled by many people.  The office of the Papacy is the same way.

Revelation 13:3 “And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.”

When the Roman Empire collapsed, their head, the Roman Emperors, were removed from power, which was the deadly head wound.  It recovered in the form of the Roman Catholic Church, when Popes took authority as the Pontifex Maximus, and claimed civil and ecclesiastical authority over the whole world.

Revelation 13:5, “And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.

Popes have claimed to be God, to be Jesus Christ in the flesh, to forgive sins, to provide salvation, and other blasphemies.

Satan used the Roman Catholic Church to deceive in the name of Christ.  The 42 months here is the same 1,260 years as Daniel 7:25 spoke about with “a time and times and half a time” which occurred from 538 – 1798 A.D.

The Encyclopedia Britannica, 1990, Vol.26, p.938) says “The ultimate humiliation of the Church came when Pius VI was driven out of Rome by the French armies in 1798 and in the following year was taken captive by them and dragged back to France, where he died.”

Revelation 13:7 “It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.”

Satan used the Roman Catholic Church to make war with the saints during the Dark Ages and the Inquisitions. They persecuted the saints so extensively, that they pronounced the opposers who testified against them as dead.

We define that the Holy Apostolic See and the Roman Pontiff (Pope) hold the primacy over the whole world.” (Source: Laetentur Coeli, Council of Florence, 1439)
And at that time, they did have control of the whole civilized world.

The Revelation 13 earth beast describes the Jesuits of Rome, the False Prophet.

Revelation 13:11 “Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth.”

This beast did not rise up out of a people group, but were created by Ignatius Loyola.  The Jesuits are the military order of the Vatican who were empowered at the Council of Trent in 1545 A.D. to counter the Reformation, to bring Protestant Churches back under their power and to kill the followers of Christ. When the Roman Catholic Church lost its power in the 18th century, the Jesuits seized control of the Vatican.

Like the title of ‘Antichrist,’ the name ‘False Prophet‘ represents a position, not just one person; much like the President of the United States or the King of England.

The False Prophet represents all of the Jesuit Generals, Black Popes, who lead the Society of Satan to deceive the world with their sorcery.

The Jesuits act Christ-like (lamb-like), but spread around the world teaching a false salvation message of following the seven sacraments through the Papal Church.
They are False Prophets.

The Jesuits are the source of false prophecy teaching of a future 70th week of Daniel featuring a one-man antichrist, as to deflect blame away from the Roman Church.
They are False Prophets.

Revelation 13:11 “and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.”

They call themselves the “Society of Jesus” and on the surface they appear to be priests who spread around the world ministering, but behind the scenes they serve Satan and they subversively do his work. They are lamb-like in pretensions, but dragon-like in character.

Here is part of the Jesuit Oath which testifies to their wicked mission. “I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth;…  I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus.”

Revelation 13:12, “And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed

The Jesuit General, the Black Pope, controls the Vatican, not the white Pope, which everyone sees.

Jesuits priests spread around the world converting people to Catholicism, to the false religion of Rome, as to cause them to revere/worship the Pope of Rome.

1/6th of the earth’s population is Roman Catholic, and now Pope Francis, a Jesuit, is drawing Muslims, Protestants, and other people groups under their power.

The Jesuits of Rome are empowered by Satan, and they are using the power of the major military’s and intelligence agencies, especially those of America, to make war with other countries, to push the world into the their New World Order, where Satan will be worshiped.

Revelation 13:13, “He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.”

The Jesuits control HAARP technologies from Nikola Tesla, which allow them to manipulate the weather, and even cause lighting to strike where they want.

On February 11, 2013, lightning hit the Vatican three times within the hour that Pope Benedict XV gives his resignation.  The Jesuits manipulated the Papacy, as Popes usually reign until they die.  But they needed to put a Jesuit in the White Pope position, which they did with Pope Francis.

They have staged events to mislead Catholics about Mary and Fatima.

In 1917 A.D, the Jesuits caused an event where 70,000 witnesses supposedly saw the sun, contrary to cosmic laws, twirl in the sky, throw off colors and descend to earth. This event, which occurred in Fatima, Portugal, caused even non-believers to immediately dropped onto their knees and beg for forgiveness.

That ‘Miracle of the Sun‘ supposedly confirmed the validity of the “Message of Fatima,” a message from the Virgin Mary, which gave warning of future calamity if people did not participate in the Eucharist communion. It served to draw the Muslim community towards the Roman Catholic Church, as they too revere Mary and believe that she was speaking through Fatima, the daughter of Muhammad.

It may refer to a future deception from the Jesuits using HAARP or other technology to cause fire to come down from the heavens.

Revelation 13:14 “And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.”

Since 1798 A.D., the Jesuits have propped up the Roman Church, creating an image of what it used to be.

In 1929 A.D., at the Lateran Treaty, the Jesuits caused Mussolini of Italy to establish Vatican City as an independent state, giving her civil authority again.

So in effect, the Jesuits have created an image of the beast.  They have created a power structure in the form of the Catholic Church, which they have revived.  They are using it to gather the world under their control.

It may also refer to a future deception from the Jesuits using satellites such as Project Blue Beam, which is designed to create holographic images in the sky, to create a worldwide message supposedly from God, or Mary.

Revelation 13:15 “He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.”

They are using Pope Francis, who is a Jesuit, to draw the world unto the “universal church” and those who don’t unite with her are becoming the enemy of the world.

Revelation 13:16 “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads.”

These False Prophets now deceive 1/6th of the world’s population with a false salvation message. These people have the mark of the beast on them, as they obey the commands of the Pope and trust in him for salvation. And the Jesuits are drawing Protestant Churches to the Papal Church, along with Muslims and people of all religions.

In their One World Government, they will cause people to worship the beast, or be killed or be cut off from buying and selling.

Revelation 13:17 “and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

The Jesuits control the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the International Bank of Settlements, the Federal Reserve Bank, and Central Banks in almost every country. In their New World Order, they will control the monetary system, to dictate who buys and sells.

Revelation 13:18 “Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

The Pope’s title is Vicar of Christ, which in Latin is ‘Vicarius Filii Dei’, which equates numerically to the number 666.

Revelation 17 describes Mystery Babylon, the Roman Catholic Church, which will be destroyed by the Jesuits of Rome.

Revelation 17:1-2 “Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters,  with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”

The seven bowls are judgments against the Antichrist Roman Catholic Church, so the context of this chapter is the Harlot Church.

Revelation 17:3 “And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

The Jesuits are the scarlet beast that is using the Harlot Roman Catholic Church to draw the world under their control.

The scarlet represents the blood they have shed during their Inquisition of killing the followers of Christ.

They proclaim the blasphemous name “the Society of Jesus,” but they are really “the Society of Satan.”

Revelation 17:4 “The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.”

The color for bishops and other prelates is purple, for cardinals scarlet… The pectoral cross should be made of gold and… decorated with gems…”
(Source: Our Sunday Visitor’s Catholic Encyclopedia, 1991, p. 175, 178, 466)

The Roman Catholic Church is arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with precious stones, fulfilling Revelation 17:4.

Revelation 17:5 “And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT,

They are called “Mystery Babylon the Great,” because they pretend to be Christian, but they’re really the Babylonian religion of Sun and Satan worship.

Revelation 17:5THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”

They have created all the major false religions, including Islam, Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, the New Age Movement, etc.

Revelation 17:6 “I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.”

“History of the Rise and Influence of the Spirit of Rationalism in Europe, Vol. 2″ documents “That the Church of Rome has shed more innocent blood than any other institution that has ever existed among mankind will be questioned by no Protestant who has a complete knowledge of history.”

Historians estimate that during the Dark Ages and the Inquisition, the Roman Catholic Church killed over 50 million people whom they deemed as heretics, most of which were Christians who dared to own a Bible (which the Church forbid) or proclaimed the Gospel of Christ.

At one event, remembered as the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre, an estimated 100,000 Huguenots (Protestant Christians in France) were slaughtered.

In Spain alone the number of condemned exceeded three million, with about 300,000 burned at the stake during the length of the Spanish Inquisition. (Source: Page 259 of an updated version of “Foxe’s Book of Martyrs”; 2001; Publisher: Bridge-Logos.)

Revelation 17:7 But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns

We already know that verses 1-6 are about the Roman Catholic Church, so the explanation in the next verses was given to help John understand who they were.

Revelation 17:8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

The first beast of Daniel WAS Babylon, out of which came Satan’s pagan worship system which stole praise from the Father.  They attempted to built a tower to the sky, as if to deny God.

In John’s day, Babylon WAS NOT, for it had been overtaken by the Medo-Persian Empire, then Greece, then the Roman Empire.

And now in verse 5, John had been shown that the Babylonian pagan religion was still alive and would manifest itself in the form of the Harlot Church.  Roman Catholicism is really the pagan Babylonian religion of Sun and Satan worship, mysteriously masked by the cover of Christianity.  The idols of Babylon became the idols of Rome, which were then given Christian names.

John would have marveled at this grand deception of Satan coming in the name of Christ, so that people would worship a false Christ. The Jesuits, like the Babylonians, are pushing the world into a New World Order, where Satan will be exalted, where man will defy God.

The antichrist beast, the Papal Church, will be judged and delivered unto perdition.

Revelation 17:9 “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman (harlot church of Rome) sits.”

Rome was the great power of John’s day, which is known for its seven hills (mountains) named Aventine, Caelian, Capitoline, Esquiline, Palatine, Quirinal and Viminal.

Interestingly, an eighth hill, Vatican (Vaticanus) Hill, is located across the Tiber river from the traditional seven hills of Rome. After the papacy returned from Avignon, France, in the 1370’s,  Vatican Hill became the headquarters for the papacy.

It was the site of the Roman temple to the Great Mother Goddess Cybele, which had, and probably still does, house secret tunnels under where the Vatican is located, where the secret worship ceremonies of Cybele, including child sacrifice, occur.

You will see that the Roman Catholic Church is the eighth head, which came out of the seven, so this reinforces that the Roman Catholic Church is Mystery Babylon.

Revelation 17:10 There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. 

At the time that John wrote Revelation, five forms of the Roman kingdom had come and gone; 1) Kings, 2) Consuls, 3) Dictators, 4) Decemvirs, and 5) Military Tribunes.

The sixth form of the Roman government was the Imperial head, commencing with Octavian, better known as Augustus Caesar. This form of government existed in John’s day and was in power until the last Emperor was removed in 476 A.D.

During the ‘short space‘ until the 8th head would arrive; the seventh head of the Roman beast was the Dukedom of Rome. Renowned historian Edward Gibbons tells us that Italy was divided unequally between the kingdom of the Lombards and the Exarchate of Ravenna.

John was being told that the Harlot described in verses 1-6, the Roman Catholic Church, would rise to power after the seven forms of government of the Roman Empire.

The Popes of Rome were empowered by Eastern Emperor Justinian in 538 A.D., which was a ‘short space‘ after the last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D.

This matches Paul’s warning in 2 Thessalonians 2, that the Son of Perdition would rise to power when the ‘restrainer,’ the Roman Emperors, were removed.

Paul and John had to hide their message, as they couldn’t write that the Roman Empire would be destroyed, as that would have invited more persecution from Rome.

Revelation 17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.

The Roman Catholic Church is the eighth, which came to power when the Roman Empire collapsed and the last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D.

The Popes took the title of Pontifex Maximus, the title of the Roman Emperors, which can be traced back in different forms to the ancient Babylon. The Babylonian Kings served as both king and priest of the pagan Babylonian Mystery religion.

As priests, they bore the title “Pontifex Maximus”  or “Supreme Pontiff,” meaning “supreme pathfinder” or “bridge maker,” representing “the path or connection between this life and the next.” They ruled upon the throne of Satan, which is the throne of Nimrod as the “hidden god.”

Revelation 17:12-13 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.

They are the same as the “ten toes” of Nebuchadnezzar’s image in Daniel 2, and the “ten horns” of the fourth beast on Daniel 7.

When the last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D., the Roman Empire split into 10 civil kingdoms, the ten kings; who then went on to form the nations of Europe, such as Italy, France, Spain, England, etc.

They reigned as independent kingdoms for a short while, but then they bowed down to the authority of the Little Horn of Daniel, which rose up at the same time, the Popes of Rome.

Revelation 17:14 “These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

These ten kingdoms, especially France and Spain, obeyed the Popes in persecuting and killing the saints.

The Messiah has overcome them during the Protestant Reformation, and when the Popes of Rome were removed from civil power in 1798 A.D.  And He will ultimately overcome them in the end when He causes them to be desolated.

Revelation 17:15 “Then he said to me, ‘The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.’ ”

The Vatican has political relationships with almost every country in the world.

vatican-relations

The Roman Catholic Church has ecclesiastical power over 1.2 Billion people, who live in the nations of the world and speak different languages.

Revelation 17:16-17, “And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.

The ten European countries will come to hate her doctrines, they will leave (desolate) her, they will desolate her authority over them (cease to give their power and strength), and remove her power over their countries (eat her flesh).

Alluding to the law in Leviticus 21:9, which required that the daughter of a priest, that played the whore, should be burnt with fire; and this is to be understood literally of burning the city of Rome, the seat of the whore, with fire.

reign-over-kingsRevelation 17:18 “And the woman (the harlot church) whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”

John is being told that it is the great city that reigns over the earth at his time, which is Rome.

Today, Vatican City is a city-state, making it the smallest country in the world, that has political relations with almost every country.

Presidents and world leaders who visit Vatican City bow to the Pope’s authority.

Vatican City controls the city-state of the City of London, which is the world’s financial power; and they control the city-state of Washington D.C., which is the world’s military power.

The city-states of Vatican City, the City of London, and Washington D.C., will control the world in the New World Order.

I respectfully disagree that America is Babylon. It is controlled by the Babylonian Jesuits of the Roman Catholic Church. Here is Revelation 18, with an explanation.

Revelation 18 describes the Jesuits of the Roman Catholic Church, who will be destroyed by our Lord.

Revelation 18:1-2 “After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!

We already know who Babylon is from Revelation 17, which identified Mystery Babylon as the Roman Catholic Church.

Babylon is the metaphor for the Roman beast that Satan has empowered to fight against Jesus and His Church. Holy Jerusalem is the metaphor for the Church that Jesus has empowered.

Revelation 18:3 “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”

The Jesuits of Rome, who are the earth beast of Revelation 13, controls the city-state of Vatican City, which controls religion; the city-state of London, which controls the worlds finances; and the city-state of Washington D.C., which controls the world through its intelligence agencies and military.

The Jesuits control the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the International Bank of Settlements, the Federal Reserve and the central banks of almost every country in the world, the major commercial banks and financial institutions. They have made corporate leaders and country leaders wealthy, by serving them.

Revelation 18:4 “And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.”

The ‘her” is referring to the Mother of Harlots, the apostate antichrist Roman Catholic Church, from Revelation 17.

Revelation 18:5-8 “For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ Therefore her plagues will come in one day–death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.”

Revelation 18:9-10 “The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.'”

Revelation 17:18 tells us that the Roman Catholic Church is the great city, “And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”

Revelation 18:11-14 “And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all.”

The City of London is on water, but it does its trades electronically, as they control the major financial markets of the world, including the buying and selling of people. Every bank has a central office there. And they control the markets in New York.

Revelation 18:15-16 “The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16 and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls!

Again, Babylon is the Roman Catholic Church, which was described in Revelation 17:4 “The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.

Revelation 18:17-20 “For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’ They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.’ Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!

Revelation 18:21-24, “Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore. The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore. No craftsman of any craft shall be found in you anymore, and the sound of a millstone shall not be heard in you anymore. The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.

This is the same ‘uncut‘ stone that was described in Daniel 2, which was cast at the Iron/Clay feet of the statue, the iron representing Rome.

In “her,” the Roman Catholic Church, over 50 million saints were killed. No doubt at the hands of the Jesuits and all the people they control, the number is much higher.

If you’re in the Catholic Church, Jesus has lovingly called you to, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.“  Revelation 18:4

There are many good priests and people in the Catholic Church, but the Vatican leaders, more specifically the Jesuits, are empowered by Satan to oppose Christ.

Come out of her and know true salvation, which is by faith in the atoning work of the Lamb of God, Christ Jesus.

If you’re a Pastor who has been teaching about a future one-man antichrist, you have been promoting the deceptions of the Jesuits, which are from Satan.

You will be judged for what you’ve taught your flock. You will be held accountable for them not knowing the truth, so that they can be prepared.

You will be held accountable for not fighting against the antichrist beast by the power of the Word of God.

Friend, can you see the truth now?

I pray that you pursue the truth for yourself, because you are going to be held accountable before the Lord some day.

As a follower of Christ, you should be actively battling against the Antichrist beast in the power of Jesus Word. And the best way for the Church to prevail is to know the truth about who the enemy is and expose them.

Instead, most Christians have no clue about prophecy fulfillment, and many don’t really care, as they think that they will be raptured out before the battle gets intense.

As such, they will be caught off-guard when the time of testing occurs, as they may choose to preserve their lives, rather than choose to honor the Lord.

Don’t be accused of being a foolish virgin, who has not the oil of truth, and isn’t prepared for Jesus return.

Their own words reveal who they are. Their bad fruit reveals who they are.

Almost every study on this website teaches a deception that has been originated by the Jesuits, to deflect blame against the Roman Catholic Church, and to deceive Christians.

Pastors are not teaching you these concepts because the Jesuits have infiltrated seminaries and Bible schools, to corrupt their teaching.

And quite honestly, some Pastors are wolves in sheep’s clothing.

I pray in the name of Jesus that the Advocate anoints you with eye salve, so that you may see the truth.

To help you be in the right frame of mind and heart, please read our End Times Deception Introduction. Otherwise your flesh, your knowledge, your pride, may cause you to defend what you’ve previously been taught.

Pray to the Holy Spirit to be as the fertile soil where truth may take root, instead of the hard path, where Satan comes and steals away the truth.

Grace to you and peace from Elohim the Father and our Messiah!

David Nikao

You are so correct James. Many who call themselves Protestants do not realize that they are unwittingly helping to spread the lies of the counter reformation. If they would believe the words of Jesus they would see that the tares are gathered first . So much for the “left behind” series.

Friends, one has to keep in mind what Jesus said about His Kingdom. Before Pilate He said that His kingdom is not of this world. The Kingdom of God is a spiritual kingdom not an earth based or physical kingdom.

This world where the wheat and tares grow is the field.
The important phrase in Mattheww 13 parable of the Tares, is “OUT OF HIS KINGDOM”. Jesus has told us His kingdom is not of the world…NOT of the earth.
Note that Jesus DOES NOT SAY that the tares are gathered out of the world, which He has told us is the field. The tares are gathered out of His kingdom….even all things that offend.
Note to,o that tares or darnel as LITV renders it, is a look a like plant to the wheat. It appears to be the same but it has nothing at the end. Those who flagrantly live in sin, know that they are nothing like them Christians.
But those who pretend to be Christians in the ‘churches’ but are not, not having the Holy Spirit of God, look like and talk like and behave like their counterparts, these are the tares. This is why Paul says to Timothy, the Lord knows those that are His.

It would help if we understood this point…the tares are gathered out of His (Jesus’) kingdom.
Matthew 25 talks about the wedding and one fellow does not have a wedding garment on and he is thrown out into outer darkness. We ought not think that this means that some sinners will be able to slip into Heaven unnoticed. It is a parable, and only points to the real thing.
Sin cannot enter such a holy place.

Joel, first of all, my prayer and petition before Almighty God is that He would grant repentance to any and evey one who has anything to do with the Roman Catholic system, and that they would find their joys and eternal Rest in JESUS CHRIST and in Him alone…EXCLUSIVELY.

However, there is no doubt in my mind that the Roman Catholic system is truly a beast in every sense of the word. It is a harlot that opens its skirts to any and everything. It considers itself untouchable – immune from God’s judgments. It considers itself as truly the queen in Heaven, the jewell of Heaven. It claims sole ownership of and dispenser of any form of blessing to mankind.
Yet it rips and tears and strangles its prey, and fills them up with vain and empty janglings, and dangling objects.

Jesus said to the religious leaders of His day, that they did not wish to go into the kingdom of God nor did they allow anyone else to get in. ….
…you are like the whitewashed sepulchres you look after, but inside are filled with the bones of dead men and all uncleanness.

In other words, while you wear lovely outside robes you stink underneath.
Rome is covered with pornographic paintings from floor to ceiling. Those quaint little paintings of naked ‘cherubs’ are nothing but little naked children the artist has put wings on to camouflage the real identity of its prey. ‘God’ is portrayed as half naked. and they still have filthy images which they pretend is an image of the pure spotless Lamb of God Jesus Christ still on a cross. That is where Rome wnats to keep Jesus crucified. As long as they see Him crucified they do not have to deal with Him as raised from the dead and about to Judge them , or their words or works.

Where in God’s Bible does any angel of God appear to men or women in a naked form? Where in God’s Bible does any ‘angel’ appear as a child?

Rome by its own admission has underneath its imposing structures the bones of dead men in its vaults, and God alone knows how many dead innocent children. It also has many spiritually unclean things down there. Images of Satan, Baphomet, and etc.
God Himself will set that place on fire soon.

Rome – the Vatican itself claims to have supreme civil and spiritual authority over the entire world. By its own mouth it condemns itself for all the evils and injustices that go on in the world. The buck stops at the top!! If the cap fits wear it. You can’t lay calim to something yet not take responsibility for all things within the sphere of that claim.

May God have mercy on all the billions of souls who are deceived by this harlot.

We must remember that Jehovah God Himself called His own people when unfaithful to Him under the old covenant, a harlot, a prostitute, yet who even made prostitutes blush. He told Israel and Judah later that a prosititue gets money for services rendered, but you My people pay others to prostitute with you.

In the new covenant He tells us that if we think we have it all together when we don’t as far as He is concerned, we are ready to be spat out of His mouth – vomited out…total rejection.

I was watching an Italian (broad accent), Leo Zagami last night via Youtube. He is a Roman Catholic. He has been in the thick of the activities of the Vatican. Now he is blowing the whistle, may God bring him into the full truth of Jesus Christ, and right out of that evil thing.
One thing that I remember him saying is that one fellow was kicked out of the Vatican but he protested sayng but I believe in Jesus Christ, and the reply was along this line – we don’t care about Jesus Christ, just get out.

As far as ‘futurism’ goes, I will leave the future where it is… in God’s hands. I do not pretend to know everything. Anyone who says that they understand fully certain biblical prophecies is kidding themselves. We can only know in part down here. But when that which is perfect is come – JESUS CHRIST Himself, then that which is in part will be done away. We can only see through a glass darkly. While I hold to some views lightly, I hold to the Scriptures tightly.

In general, regarding biblical prophecy, I see that propehcies often have multiple fulfillments over time and eras.
While I love reading Scripture prayerfully, and do seek the Lord’s wisdom on it, my main concern is that i be fashioned by it so as to be conformed more and more into the image of Jesus Christ my Lord and my God and my soon coming King and our Bridegroom.
The big question is ARE WE READY NOW…WHEN HE COMES?

hope that answers your question Joel.

Kristin Solo December 10, 2014 at 6:17 pm

There is certainly a great deal of insightful information in this article, which merits prayerful consideration. Thanks ! However, I have to question your interpretation re Revelation 17:9 > “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman (harlot church of Rome) sits.”
‘The seven hills (mountains) around Rome are named the Aventine, Caelian, Capitoline, Esquiline, Palatine, Quirinal and Viminal.’
Scripture indicates that these seven Heads or Mountains are 7 consecutive idolatrous Biblical Empires, all of which opposed and oppressed God’s People/ Israel. Scripture specifically records, in respect of those Heads/ Mountains/ Empires that, at the time when John was writing The Revelation, ” Five have fallen, One is, and One is yet to come”. This is a reference to Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo Persia, Greece, as the five which had fallen – a reference to Rome as ‘one is’, meaning Rome was the dominant Empire in John’s day – and a reference to the Ottoman Empire as the’ one that is to come’ . Scripture further reveals that the 8th Kingdom/ Empire of the Beast will be ‘ Of the Seven ‘ meaning it will either be one of the revived previous empires or a regime that is constituted of all the same heretical idolatries which appeared in the seven previous ungodly empires, which together are identified as the Whore of Babylon.

David December 10, 2014 at 6:36 pm

Thank you for your comment Kristin 🙂 Revelation 17:1-6 are clearly speaking about the Roman Catholic Church, as a Harlot is an apostate Christian Church. The problem with assigning the seventh beast to the Ottoman Empire is that it does not fit the description of “he must continue a short time,” as the Ottoman Empire was in power for 624 years, from 1299 – 1923 A.D.

When you look at the description of the beasts that are defined in Revelation 13, you see that the sea beast is the Roman Catholic Church which reigned for 1,260 years, from 538-1798 A.D., until the Jesuits had Napoleon remove the Pope from power. The earth beast is the Jesuits of Rome, the leader is the Jesuit General, the Black Pope.

The Jesuits of Rome are the scarlet beast of Revelation 17, who has propped up the Roman Catholic Harlot Church, to gather the world under their power. And now a Jesuit is Pope for the first time. They hate the Harlot and will burn her, when they gain full power over the world.

So the context of the explanation to John in Revelation 17 is all about the Roman Catholic Church and the Jesuits of Rome.

Grace and peace and love to you in Christ’s name,
David

The seven headed beast of revelation 17 is a conglomerate beast of the book of Daniel. If you add up the heads of the four beasts, they add up to seven heads,(Babylon (1) Medio-Persia (1) Greece(4) Rome (1)..)..And if you consider the other features of that beast, they are also the various features of all four of those beasts combined. Now if you consider closely the Roman Catholic Church, they have the religion of all four empires fully ensconced in their ecclessia, and they expound the philosophies of the Greeks ( Aristotle,Plato,Democritus,Socrates)…Do a bit of research, food for thought!!

Reply

David April 25, 2016 at 11:08 am

Agreed the Roman Empire had traits of the previous empires, because they conquered the territory formerly held by the beast. But Daniel only defines four beast kingdoms that would exist until Messiah returns. Rome is the fourth kingdom.

Revelation 17:7 But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns”

Verses 1-6 are about the Harlot Roman Catholic Church, so the explanation in the next verses was given to help John understand who they were.

Revelation 17:8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

The first beast of Daniel WAS Babylon, out of which came Satan’s pagan worship system which stole praise from the Father. They attempted to built a tower to the sky, as if to deny God.

In John’s day, Babylon WAS NOT, for it had been overtaken by the Medo-Persian Empire, then Greece, then the Roman Empire.

John had been shown that the Babylonian pagan religion was still alive and would manifest itself in the form of the Harlot Church. Roman Catholicism is really the pagan Babylonian religion of Sun and Satan worship, mysteriously masked by the cover of Christianity. The idols of Babylon became the idols of Rome, which were then given Christian names.

John would have marveled at this grand deception of Satan coming in the name of Christ, so that people would worship a false Christ. The Jesuits, like the Babylonians, are pushing the world into a New World Order, where Satan will be exalted, where man will defy God.

The antichrist beast, the Papal Church, will be judged and delivered unto perdition.

Revelation 17:9 “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman (harlot church of Rome) sits.”

Rome was the great power of John’s day, which is known for its seven hills (mountains) named Aventine, Caelian, Capitoline, Esquiline, Palatine, Quirinal and Viminal.

Interestingly, an eighth hill, Vatican (Vaticanus) Hill, is located across the Tiber river from the traditional seven hills of Rome. After the papacy returned from Avignon, France, in the 1370’s, Vatican Hill became the headquarters for the papacy.

It was the site of the Roman temple to the Great Mother Goddess Cybele, which had, and probably still does, house secret tunnels under where the Vatican is located, where the secret worship ceremonies of Cybele, including child sacrifice, occur.

You will see that the Roman Catholic Church is the eighth head, which came out of the seven, so this reinforces that the Roman Catholic Church is Mystery Babylon.

Revelation 17:10 There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time.

King in Strong’s can be translated as ‘sovereign’. Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines ‘sovereign’ as “A supreme lord or ruler; one who possesses the highest authority.” So it’s pointing to 8 types of rulers in the Roman Empire, which John would be familiar with.

At the time that John wrote Revelation, five forms of the Roman kingdom had come and gone; 1) Kings, 2) Consuls, 3) Dictators, 4) Decemvirs, and 5) Military Tribunes.

The sixth form of the Roman government was the Imperial head, commencing with Octavian, better known as Augustus Caesar. This form of government existed in John’s day and was in power until the last Emperor was removed in 476 A.D.

During the ‘short space‘ until the 8th head would arrive; the seventh head of the Roman beast was the Dukedom of Rome. Renowned historian Edward Gibbons tells us that Italy was divided unequally between the kingdom of the Lombards and the Exarchate of Ravenna.

John was being told that the Harlot described in verses 1-6, the Roman Catholic Church, would rise to power after the seven forms of government of the Roman Empire.

The Popes of Rome were empowered by Eastern Emperor Justinian in 538 A.D., which was a ‘short space‘ after the last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D.

This is the same message that Paul gave in 2 Thessalonians 2, when he said that the Son of Perdition would rise to power when the ‘restrainer,’ the Roman Emperors, were removed.

Remember, Paul and John had to hide their message, as they couldn’t write that the Roman Empire would be destroyed, as that would have invited more persecution from Rome.

Revelation 17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.

The Roman Catholic Church is the eighth, which came to power when the Roman Empire collapsed and the last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D.

The Popes took the title of Pontifex Maximus, the title of the Roman Emperors, which can be traced back in different forms to the ancient Babylon. The Babylonian Kings served as both king and priest of the pagan Babylonian Mystery religion.

As priests, they bore the title “Pontifex Maximus” or “Supreme Pontiff,” meaning “supreme pathfinder” or “bridge maker,” representing “the path or connection between this life and the next.” They ruled upon the throne of Satan, which is the throne of Nimrod as the “hidden god.”

This fulfillment matches that of the Little Horn of Daniel 7. When the Roman Empire collapsed, it was split into 10 civil kingdoms.

Then Satan empowered the Roman Catholic Church to rise to power in Rome, and the Popes caused three of the kingdoms, which would not bow down to their authority, to be removed, plucked out.

This fulfillment also matches that of the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2.

As long as the Roman Emperors were in power, they restrained the Popes of Rome from having control. But when the last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D., the Popes of Rome took power a short time later in 538 A.D.

Shalom David ~ With due respect for your insightful research, I nevertheless have to say that I think you have sidestepped the issue I raised re the correct interpretation of the Seven Heads/ Mountains/ Empires . The correct intepretation, substantiated by Revelation 17:10 ff, which identifies them as Seven Biblical Empires and not as the seven hills associated with the city of Rome, indicates that ALL IDOLATROUS WORSHIP, involving the ‘same’ demonic deities, which feature under ‘another’ name in ALL SEVEN of the Biblical Empires, combines to form Satan Worship AKA False Religion, which is the whole substance of the Great Whore of Babylon. The same idolatrous deities by another name appear in every consecutive Empire, since Nimrod was deified as the Sungod in the dark Mystery Religion of Ancient Babylon. Like Nimrod, the birthday of all those consecutive sungods was celebrated on 25th December, from Nimrod and Tammuz of Babylon through to Sol Invictus, the sungod of the Roman Empire. Can you please provide contextual specific scriptures to substantiate your statement that the Beasts rising out of the Sea represent Popes! In fact, the Beast of Revelation 13 is formed from a conjoined creature which incorporates Seven Heads and the body parts of three individual beasts, each of which Daniel specifically identifies as the Empires of Greece /Leopard, Persia/ Bear , and Babylon/ Lion. Certainly , the Roman Catholic Church inherited the idolatrous practises of Constantine’s corrupted version of Christianity in the 4th century, which cut off the times and seasons of the Hebraic roots of the Faith and substituted them with Rome’s idolatrous religion. This corrupt form of Romanised Christianity subsequently materialised into the rites, rituals and regulations of Romam Catholicism, including the celebration of 25th December as the falsely designated ‘ birthday’ of the Messiah , Yeshua/ Jesus. Thus, Roman Catholicism has its roots in Babylon and is featured among the numerous seductive faces of the Whore of Babylon, who sits astride the Scarlet Beast of Revelation 17. Her attire of Scarlet and Purple is a counterfeit copy of the specific and significant colours which God ordained to represent His Redemptive Programme, in the furnishings of The Taberbacle … notably the colour ‘ Blue’ is missing from the Whore’s garments … which is another article! Scarlet and Purple have been hi- jacked by Satan’s usurping agenda and these colours have been promininent in every idolatrous Religion from Babylon to Rome. They are not exclusive to the Roman Catholic Church.

I agree With Kristin in that I believe the beast empire will come from one of those represents in the statue dream and interpretation of Daniel. As time moves along, and prophecies are being fulfilled, daily now, we can see and understand things that we could not quite grasp before. There are many differing opinions of the Daniel prophecies as well as interpretations of Revelation. As the end of this age rapidly approaches, we see so very many churches becoming apostate, not just the catholic false church. Now we have christlam, pure abomination, and so many churches that were one strong bastions of Biblical truth who have and are falling away. Satan has spread his false teaching far and wide, usurping many who call themselves Christian. The day is soon approaching when God will judge His church. As that day approaches, scripture is becoming clearer every day as to the role catholicism as well as Islam will play in the tribulation and events leading up to it.

Thank you for your comment Carol 🙂 Yes, there are a lot of opinions of the Daniel prophecies, but for 1,800 years, our Church fathers all proclaimed that they were Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome; and that the Rome beast would endure until Christ returns to destroy it. Since then, the Jesuits of Rome have caused many deceptions, to deflect blame away from the antichrist Roman Catholic beast.

Some day I will complete a study that shows the prophecy fulfillment of the relationship between the Roman Catholic Church and the Muslims, which have worked together through history to kill Jews and Christians. Today, Al Qaeda and ISIS are controlled by the Jesuits of Rome, via the CIA and Mossad, which they also control; to carry out their Inquisition of killing Christians, and to overthrow the leaders of countries like Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, who would not bow down to their authority. That is why President Assad of Syria is being demonized and attacked, in order to overthrow him, so that they can control Syria.

I really enjoyed your article, but must do some Biblical study on some of these things. I have been studying the history of Christianity, and would like to point out a few things. The Crusades and particularly the Inquisition’s definition of heresy was any individual or assembly that did not recognize the authority of the Pope to determine doctrine and practices. Therefore, the Sabbath keepers were a prime target, and were practically wiped out. Also although you identify false religions as the whore’s daughters, almost all the Protestant denominations perpetuate many of the false doctrines and practices of the Roman Catholic Church, and are therefore the harlot’s daughters as well. Huldreich Zwigley said “If it’s in the Bible do it, if it’s not in the Bible don’t do it.” Wise words if we want to truly come out from among her, and not partake of her abominations!

Thank you for your comment Carolyn 🙂 The true followers of Christ were killed by the antichrist Roman Catholic Church because they witnessed about pure salvation through Christ’s atoning work, instead of through the sacraments of the Papal Church; and because they witnessed against the Popes of Rome as the antichrist beast of Revelation. I have never seen a quote from a martyr or an accusation from the Papal Church, that people were killed because of the Sabbath.

The Protestant Churches started out pure, when Catholics came out of the Papal Church, to be saved by Christ alone. But the Jesuits have countered the Reformation, and have brought the Protestant Churches back under their power, so that they teach the things of Rome, such as Sunday Sabbath, pagan holidays such as Christmas and Easter, false prophecy fulfillment explanations, false Gospel messages, etc.

I believe this to be true also. Protestantism may have started in a right manner but it does adhere to pagan holidays such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween and so on. These are plainly pagan holidays. It hurts, I know because when we were small my parents did all these with us and we did not know. When I was taught this I believed these were wrong and I still do. The Catholic church is depicted as a mother in the Bible but a mother of harlots so to me it’s self explanatory. To speak in the vernacular, it’s a shame, ain’t it? Almighty God must be hurt by all these things and He should not be sad. We should make Him happy. Right now I feel I have learning over load. I’ve been searching for many years and learned a lot but I cannot seem to get the puzzle 100% but I don’t think anyone can but if we are persistent we can get close and enough to get us through. God bless, all. It’s fun to read all the posts to see what others think.
In His Love,

Thank You, Shirley,

Your sentiments are similar to mine. I have learned a lot within the last past (15) years, concerning: Bible prophecy, Catholicism, Jesuits, Protestants, and Israel. America should prepare for Agenda 21 depopulation, Martial Law, and FEMA Camps. As goes America…so goes the world. The Anti-Christ will then take over; as prophesized in the book of Revelations.

Shirley,
I truly know what you mean about the learning over load, as I had been called out in 2007, but it wasn’t till 2010 that I found one who would teach chapter by chapter, verse by verse, precept by precept. I studied from before sun up to well past sun down, day in and day out. I have completed about 90% of the bible in its full teaching, but I came to a stop and now can not retain anymore, I love YHVH with my whole heart and still study and keep into the word. I know that there are treasures within me. I will not forsake my LORD and I know his love is with me . I also should state that when I came to that stop, I did at that time go straight into the History of all the empires, at that time we had seen the rise of the Muslim brotherhood and the fall go to the rise of ISIS=Paid Mercenaries by Nations who say they are fighting ISIS. These Nations today are buy the Oil on the Black Market..

Jesuits have been busy since they became a ‘police’ cum ‘espionage’ force within the Romish system. They will stop at nothing, and do anything to convince or overthrow any lawful thing, or one standing in the way of Roman Catholic intent. They are sworn (going to diabolical extremes to ‘prove’ their oaths) to absolute allegiance to their supreme ruler which is the Father General in the Vatican (nicknamed the Black Pope), not the pope who dresses in white.
Rome’s Doctrine has been evolving since its inception; it is constantly moving. It has no absolutes.

A point or two David on worshipping God on Sunday. Jesus was raised from the dead on the first day of the week which was the very next day after the weekly Jewish sabbath.
On THAT first day, which was the eighth day after the previous sabbath, and eight in the Bible is synomous with new life etc, Jesus Christ appeared to His disciples on three (not an insignificant number) separate occasions. Jesus did not wait around till the next sabbath before He appeared to and met with His disciples.
It was on that FIRST day. Which day just happens to be called Sunday – a much later invention.
BECAUSE Jesus Himself set the precedent, no longer a Jew in mortal flesh, but as the Firstborn from the dead, the First born of a NEW spiritual creation, it is perfectly within my right to worship Jesus Christ and His Father, my Father, on that day. The early disciples did not call (at least in Scripture) the day of a week by the modern names we ‘have’ to.
It was centuries later that Rome got busy to ‘sanctify’ the ‘Sunday’ to make it acceptable. And this is their practice in other areas such as making saints of dead people. Whereas God makes saints of living people. But Rome was already centuries too late. Jesus had already sanctified it by His own holy appearances in His new holy glorified body.
The early disciples did not just worship God on one day of the week but on EVERY day of the week. And neither should we; everyday is holy to the Lord. We may worship our Lord God Jesus Christ every day of the week. And I do.

Also, for those who hold to the old testament keeping of sabbath as the only legitimate day of worshipping God, they must also bear in mind that no work was to be done on the weekly sabbath. They were not even allowed to gather (shop for) food on the Sabbath In Moses’ day, one man was stoned to death on God’s direct command; all he did was gather some sticks to make a fire no doubt for his family perhaps so as they could cook their manna on that day. Jews were not allowed to travel very far at all – the new teatament talks about a sabbath days journey for Jews. In fact in Moses’ day they had to remain in their dwellings on the sabbath, if you read the text carefully.

If one is going to ‘keep’ the fourth command in STRICT observance, they had better keep all the details that God gave connecting to it. To break one detail of a single Law is to break all the Law.
But Paul tells us that we are not under the Law of Moses, but under the Law of Christ Jesus the Greater than Moses – as he puts it “the Spirit of Life in Christ has mde me free from the Law of Sin and Death (Rom.8:2).
Jesus fulfilled all the Law. Jesus came to bring to us a greater understanding of God’s Law. The Moral laws are still valid concerning the last 6; although now in Jesus they also include the secrets of the heart – wow!
The way that the first four were to be fulfilled in the old covenant was through animal sacrifices and a strict keeping of the seventh day.
In the new covenant ratified in Jesus’ blood, the first four have a different form of expression if I may be permitted to say it that way. The intent and motive is still the same but certain aspects of expression and form, as the risen Christ, and His apostles show us are notably different.

Grace and peace and love to you in Jesus Christ the risen, ascended and exalted Lord.

But they will not repent, for they have been filled with pride and Rome says, “I sit as a Queen, and am no widow, and will see no sorrow” (Rev. 18:7). ‘Rome’ claims to be the Mother Church.
‘Rome’ prostitutes itself with every religious head it can. It receives all and will baptize any who yields to its teaching and authority; even according to official material willing to baptize as I have said elsewhere ‘aliens’ when they arrive; and Rome is secretly preparing for such an event.
This is the way of a harlot.
The Jesuits have infiltrated every sphere of society and hold high office in maniline churches, in government departments; they even came across to America disguised as Puritans.
They will say all the right words to decieve all they can, but their hearts are not right before God. May God yet have mercy on all of those Jesuits yet living as He did on the late Alberto Rivera.

The whore of Babylon is based in the Vatican. It is decked with gold and silver and has fornicated with all the kings and princes of the earth. Not many world leaders have or could achieve what the popes of Rome have. They are one of a kind. I find it quite interesting indeed that this last pope of Rome is a Jesuit, the first Jesuit pope Rome has ever had. hmmmmm

A problem I see with a Mahdi, an Islamic Messiah as THE final antichrist, is that while they do behead peopl who will not bow down, they do not have the subtlity of the serpent like the Vatican does. They do not have the spread of influence like one who has fornicated with ALL the kings of the earth.
Rome does not bow to any Arab, or Islamic leader, yet they do bow to it. Rome is very warm to Islam, like two lovers in bed, but no more so than any other lovers. There is something unique about Romes’ (the Vatican – or the Vaticuum’s) manner that is distinctly compelling.
Rome has been very brutal, as ancient Rome was in the past, because it is composed of iron and clay. It still has the hallmarks of ancient Rome while being ‘pliable’ enough (like wet clay) to blend in and look very inviting as a does a prostitute. Islam does not seem to have that trait.

And on the matter of beheading true believers in Christ…America, where the Jesuit influence is huge, has thousands of guillotines in certain places for the purpose of beheading ‘enemies’ of the State.
But all of the enemies of Jesus Christ will come to their end.

Thank you for your comment Ian 🙂 Agreed about the Jesuits!

As for Jesus rising on Sunday, my studies show that He died at 3 pm on Wednesday as the Passover Lamb, the next day was a High Sabbath of the feast of Unleavened bread so no work was done, the 2nd day the women bought and prepared the spices, the 3rd day was the weekly Saturday Sabbath, on which Jesus rose after 3 pm, and the 4th day was the day that the woman came early to the tomb with the spices and found it empty.

A Friday-Sunday explanation is not 3 days and 3 nights. A Wednesday-Saturday explanation is.

John 19:31 confirms that it was a High Sabbath day, not the weekly Sabbath. “Therefore, because it was the Preparation Day, that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.”

When you put Mark 16 and Luke 23-24 together, you get the whole narrative:

Passover – Jesus died as the Passover Lamb. Mary observed the tomb and how his body was laid
Next Day – Unleavened Bread High Sabbath – they rested
2nd Day – they bought and prepared spices
3rd Day – Weekly sabbath, they rested, Jesus rose
4th Day – They came to the tomb early bringing the spices, he was not there.

Mark 16:1-2 Now when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him. Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen

Luke 23:55-6 And the women who had come with Him from Galilee followed after, and they observed the tomb and how His body was laid. Then they returned and prepared spices and fragrant oils. And they rested on the Sabbath according to the commandment.

Luke 24:1 Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared.

Here is the explanation of what day Jesus died and rose again, with a chart on the bottom that helps you visualize the fulfillment http://www.ucg.org/doctrinal-beliefs/jesus-wasnt-crucified-friday-or-resurrected-sunday/

I agree. Friday to Sunday is not three days and three nights and Jesus made this explicit in the Jonah metaphor. I had not learned that the Jesuits were behind the Vatican and evil but I believe it after reading this study. Isn’t it amazing that the “Federal Reserve Bank” has nothing to do with the US Federal Government? It’s really the private bank or part of it. Plain evil. The study is very good. It’s one thing to read the Bible about the “beast power” and the description of it but to see it in the above photo. That confirms it. The way it says, friend, it could not be more plain. The purple and scarlet and the big gold crown and the gold cup. All there. You know what hit me when I first saw the photo? When Jesus said fill up the measure you viper brood. I was wondering…do they know they are the very thing Revelation is describing? The more I learn the more questions I have. God bless. xo

Mk 9:31; 10:34
Lk 9:22; 18:33; 24:7, 21
Acts 10:40
1 Cor 15:4.

All the above testify to Jesus being raised on,within the period of the third day day. The wtiness for ‘after’ the third day is but a few.

Jesus came to life again in a resurrected, immortal body on the third day.
Both the angels and Paul testify that this would be according to the (Hebrew) Scriptures.
Hosea 6:2 is a proophetic statement about God raising bothe Jesus from the dead, and raising up the living foundation stones (Hebrews – the apostles) of the assembly of Jesus Christ from deadness of the Law.
Peace in Jesus Christ the Resurrection and the Life

Thank you for your comment Karen 🙂 The home page of this website shows you how The Jesuits fulfill prophecy in Revelation 13, 16, 17 and 18.

In order for the enemy to take control of the world, they have to control the financial system, to be able to put every country and person in massive debt, and to ultimately control who can buy and sell in their New World Order.

That takes a large organization of people, who control the corporations, the banks, the financial institutions, etc.
They control much of it through people like the Rothchilds, the Rockefellers, etc.

Here is a page that lists all that they control http://thetruthfulone.com/

You can search YouTube for videos that show how the Jesuits control the world’s finances. Of course they do it through front companies, to hide their control, but all roads lead to them.

Here are a few videos to check out.

Thank you for your comment Jesse 🙂 The Jesuits of Rome created the narrative of a future 7-year tribulation featuring a one-man antichrist. They did this in the 16th century to deflect blame away from the Popes of Rome, as they had rightly identified them as the Little Horn of Daniel, the son of perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2 and the antichrist beast of Revelation.

The concept of the pre-trib rapture came later in the 18th century, supposedly by a dream from a girl, and then it was promoted by Darby and Scofield.

But the whole concept of a future 7-year tribulation period is false, because it’s based on a supposed future 70th week of Daniel. But the 70th week was fulfilled on time, after the 69th week, from 27-34 A.D. http://christianitybeliefs.org/end-times-deceptions/the-70th-week-of-daniel/

So they pre-trib rapture is a lie from the enemy, to deceive Christians, so that they are unprepared for the New World Order.

Thanks for the references concerning the Jesuits. I am just learning about them. I want to share my huge concern for the Body of Christ at this time. But first let me tell you a little about myself. I was raised Catholic, attending Catechism and Mass every Sunday through 12th Grade and receiving all the Holy Sacraments available to someone during those years of my life. My two sisters were raised the same way, however, they have both taken different paths than I have. My older sister is a New Ager, who has taught a Course In Miracles, Studied with Werner Erhard and his EST junk, presently Charts peoples Astrology Charts for profit, studies under a man who, according to her, is one of the only (or few by now) who “channels” the spirit of christ” (small letters not to offend my Lord) and on and on with much, much, more of the Occult. My younger sister is a devout Muslim who has made her pilgrimage to Mecca. She is an RN and presently she goes into Hospitals and “ministers spiritually” (her rubbish) to people who are very sick or dying .

I, however, was saved the moment I prayed with Ben Kenchlow, while watching the 700 Club in ’79 and soon after that I rejected the Catholic Church as Truth and began to believe, as I studied the Word, that it would be deeply involved with the Anti-Christ and False Prophet. I have never changed my beliefs on that and am presently extremely alarmed with the Deception that I see within the Body of Christ, concerning the Catholic Church and the Pope. Incredibly the Charismatic, Pentecostals, Warrenites, Beth Moorinites, James Robinites, Arnottinites, Osteenites, Copelandites (not all I realize, but many) and all those who follow them and more are cozying up to the Pope and have bought into the Cover Up the Catholic Church and Pope are pushing. At the same time it seems to me these same “Christians” are buying into Richardson’s and Walid Shoebat’s theories that the Anti-Christ will be a Muslim. At this point, it seems to me the handwriting is on the wall. Masses of people who look up to these leaders and teachers will follow them right into the arms of the Anti-Christ, the Pope and Catholic Church, as they run in what they think is the opposite direction from the so called Muslim anti-Christ, which is really just a smoke screen of Satan to trick them into accepting the Pope as Godly and representative of Christ. Ultimately the trick is to get them to think the Pope and the Catholic Church are part of the Good guys, as well as, eventually ushering in the real Christ. Under great deception, they will align themselves with the Anti-Christ and False Prophet, (the Pope and his ungodly co-harts) and the One World Gov, Economy, and Religion because they would rather believe a lie than the Truth. I see this as a huge part of the Falling Away.

Meanwhile, discerning Christians, The Bride of Christ, will neither fall for the Pope’s lies and deception nor the idea that the Anti-Christ will be a Muslim. That idea is just to deflect attention away from the idea that the Pope and the Catholic Church are tied to the real anti-Christ or False Prophet. I believe Scripture teaches us that the anti-Christ and false Prophet have their roots in the Roman Catholic Church. This may sound very “general” but isn’t it sort of how it is unfolding?

After talking to a lot of people it just amazes me how little the mainstream Christians know about Catholicism……or even what their current religion teaches them. My large family is still devout Catholics and my heart breaks for them. I am the only one that has come out of that system. I pray everyday that Yahweh calls them unto him and that they research what they believe is truth.

David, the other part to this is that many who have not fallen into this deception, as of yet, get really annoyed at conversations about the end times and additionally they think I am off in la la land rather than being about My Father’s Business. My answer to that is that “end time prophesy and end time events are part of the Word of God and if they would get knowledgeable concerning these things, they could use the information as an additional tool to lead others to Christ.” I wonder, just what is going to make Americans wake up and care that their Brothers and Sisters are “Falling Away” from Jesus? They just don’t seem to care. Nothing shakes us except our pocketbooks or love life. It is so encouraging to find this site, since it is not that I am “Lonely” because I have Christ, but any meaningful fellowship is very scarce.- Scarce enough to make me press harder to know the Truth.

Thank you for your comment Karen 🙂 In Revelation 1:3 our Messiah gave a blessing to those who read it and hear (understand) the words of the prophecy. And I truly have been blessed to learn how our Messiah has empowered His Church throughout history, to fight against the Roman beast of Satan. I see how He has controlled the armies of the world, and even the Jesuits of Rome, the Society of Satan, to carry out His perfect will.

And I see how He is waking up the remnant to wage war against the enemy, to expose their deceptions, which removes their stronghold.

Sadly most people won’t wake up until it’s too late. All we can do is teach truth and pray for them, and hopefully the Spirit of Truth will open their eyes.

It’s a lonely road to be sure. Just know that you’re not alone, for we are the remnant of the Church of Christ, the commonwealth of Israel.

To our church age of Laodecia, Messiah said that we are lukewarm, wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked… but to the overcomers, He promised “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.”

Keep pressing toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus! Philippians 3:14

While it is true that the Vatican has the spirit of antichrist embodied in it, and that it has everyting to do with the final antichrist – the ‘mother’ of them all, and that Vatican at least if not Rome entirely will be destroyed, there is yet to be a ‘man’ the man of sin who will appear as the final antichrist. Paul talks about the man of sin – the son of perdition -2 Thess 2:3. Judas was also called the son of perdition – Jn 17:12. Jesus uses the term as does Paul. The phrase occurs nowhere else in Scripture asn is the exact same term. It only applies to 2 individuals.
The word for man in 2 Thess 2:3, is anthropos and means a human being. Only individual beings – man or evil spirit is cast into the Lake of Fire. There are no institutions in Hell or the Lake of Fire. Disobedient creatures will end up there.
The woman who rides the beast is not a man or an individual, it is a system of religion ; a collecive term. Israel of old was referred to by God as a woman whther in faithfulness or not; and so is the ‘church’.
May I urge the readers of this site to get hold of Doc Marquis ‘The Illuminati’s plan for 2012 and Beyond’ (disk 2 of Vol. 1). available from ‘Cutting Edge Minsitries’. Doc Marquis was deep into the Illuminati, but the Jesus Christ rescued him. You may well find it interesting.
Rome has its tendrils everywhere, it is sucking any loose believer or ‘church’ into its vaticuum…and they are all going happily to their doom. We must pray for one another to endure every onlsaught of the evil one.

Let us look unto and hide in Jesus Christ alone from whence comes our Help. He alone is our Salvation – Psalm 27:1.

Thank you for your comment Ian 🙂 The ‘son of perdition’, the ‘antichrist’ and the ‘false prophet’ are positions, like the President of the United States or the King of England. Yes, there will be one man in those positions at the end, but the role has been historically fulfilled by many men, all of which will be thrown into the pit.

Traditionally the Popes (antichrist) and Jesuit General (false prophet) continue in their position until they die. But the last Pope and Jesuit General retired, so now there are two living Popes and two living Jesuit Generals.

Doc Marquis offers a unique perspective to be sure.

What is a Christian? Someone who believes, expresses, and embodies the values and principles taught to us by Jesus Christ. The Catholic Church and its faithful are most certainly part of that definition, and, until 1517 A.D. were the only Christians on earth. As it continues, the Catholic Church represents over 2000 years of study of the Word of God and wisdom of the Holy Spirit. It is true that human error has at times reflected badly on such a Godly organization. I challenge anyone to find any organization, religious or secular, that has not been victim to human error during its history. Yet the Catholic Church continues to spread the gospel, help the poor, and shepherd the faithful. We should all embrace and celebrate our common goal of salvation and the service of others in becoming more Christ-like. The end times will come, and at that time I want to be considered by our Judge as one who is Christ-like, not one who has judged (or mis-judged) others.

Thank you for your comment Chris 🙂 The Catholic Church teaches salvation through the sacraments, through the Catholic Church. That is not true salvation. They teach that a priest or Pope can forgive sins, but there in only One who can forgive sins, Jesus Christ. They teach that salvation is only through the Catholic Church, but the Scriptures declare that it is only through the Messiah. They declare that Mary is the Intercessor and Co-redeemer, but the Scriptures declare that only Messiah fills that role.

Catholic priests spread around the world preaching a false gospel, deceiving the world. Killing over 50 million people in not some small human error. Having a countless number of priests violating little boys is not some small human error.

The Scriptures clearly describe the Popes of Rome as the Antichrist beast of Revelation, the Little Horn of Daniel, and the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2.
The Popes proclaim to be the Vicar of Christ, which means substitute Christ or in place of Christ. That is the very definition of antichrist.

Proclaiming to forgive sins is blasphemy. Proclaiming to be God is blasphemy. And that is exactly what the Popes of Rome have done.

You are in an apostate Church Chris. Messiah has commanded you to come out of the Harlot Church of Babylon. I pray that you will.

And let me just add something, lest you think I am part of a Protestant Church. The Protestant Churches which used to protest against the Roman Church are now in bed with her. They are apostate. They teach false doctrine. For they have been infiltrated by the Jesuits of Rome and now are daughters of the Harlot Church.

You do not have what we believe right at all, and am not asking that you change your beliefs, that is between you and our Savior, but simply respect the beliefs that I and other Catholics hold, which are rooted firmly in the Bible, including the sacraments, and most importantly all of our beliefs are centered on Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior, the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Chris, as with any denomination, their websites are not going to give total truth. Do not do your research on a Catholic website!! There are so many resources that will tell you exactly what is going on inside the Vatican and about their evil history. PLEASE, research with an open mind and heart for the truth…..expect to be horrified because it will be shocking….When you find the real truth it is truly freeing!! When Jesus says many are called, few are chosen….that should tell you right there that the biggest religion in the world can not in any way be about the Almighty Fathers business.

Chris, is it really true that all Catholic “beliefs are centred on Jesus Christ” ?
I wish that were true. Oh that every single person on the face of the earth had their whole being centred on Jesus Christ the King and Lord of glory.

I urge you to have a serious read of this https://carm.org/testimonies-ex-roman-catholic-priests
One of those ex catholic priests, Alexander Carson. was “Baptized into the Roman Catholic Church as an infant. His priesthood studies were at St. John’s seminary, Brighton, Massachusetts. He was ordained by Bishop Lawrence Shehan of Bridgeport, Connecticut in 1955 and was a priest in Alexandria, Louisiana. Also, he was pastor of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Rayville, Louisiana.
On the point of “Bible or Tradition. ” . . . the Holy Spirit led me to judge Roman Catholic theology by the standard of the Bible. Previously, I had always judged the Bible by Roman Catholic doctrine and theology.” (p. 53)
He adds that “Mass contrary to scripture. “In my letter of resignation from the Roman Catholic Church and Ministry, I stated to the bishop that I was leaving the priesthood because I could no longer offer the Mass, as it was contrary to the Word of God and to my conscience.” (pp. 54-55)
Now you would think that a pastor in the Roman Catholic Church would have some idea of RC beliefs, perhaps more than most parishioners. But he says that the Holy Spirit showed him on what grounds to examine his position. And having made a didligent search of the Scriptures began to see the truth in Jesus Christ at last.

Check it out for yourself Chris. You can even watch some of these testimonies on Youtube, such as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhAvnKRN6Y8
If you are willing to honestly know the truth, just search the Scriptures and ask the heavenly Father to show you His truth.

Ian,

It is really true that Catholic beliefs are centered around Jesus Christ. I am Catholic and have spent enough time being so to know what our beliefs as Catholics are. How can a Church both be centered around Jesus and anti-Christ at the same time? That defies logic and reason. One thing I do know to be true is that no one of us has a complete understanding or full knowledge of the Truth that is Jesus Christ, which is why we are having this conversation now. It is important for us to learn from each other, and continue in all things to seek the Truth. I know that both of us will ultimately find that Truth, because Jesus promised all of those who seek, shall find. I will keep you in my prayers so that you may find what you seek, as I hope you will for me.

Chris, you will leave no stone unturned in order to find out that truth. Jesus spoke about the person who ‘found’ a pearl of great price, and then sold everything – everything in order to keep that pearl. Jeus Christ the King of Israel, the Son of God – Son of Man is that Pearl. Seek Him.
If in seeking Jesus Christ you find Him, would you be willing to forsake the Pope and all what the Vatican holds dear if that is what Jesus Himself required of you?

Dig, Chris. Dig. Your soul depends on what you hold dear, as with all of us.

Chris, you ask – “How can a Church both be centered around Jesus and anti-Christ at the same time?”
The answer is both impossible and possible. Allow me to explain.
In the middle of the Garden of Eden, God had placed two trees. One was The Tree of Life. The other was the Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil. In a nutshell, that is your answer.
Chris, Ask God your Heavenly Father to explain this mystery to you. Don’t ask ‘Mary’, don’t ask a dead saint, don’t ask your priest, don’t ask the bishop or the pope. Just ask your Heavenly Father. Search the Scriptures oin your kness before God without referring to your church’s leaders. God won’t bite…He longs for your fellowship…one to one.

But for now, this is how I see it. The Tree of Life was a pure Tree, with pure fruit. It was different to all the other trees in the Garden. This Tree alone could provide them ‘everlasting life’ as God says in Genesis 3:22 “…take from the Tree of Life, and eat, and live forever.”
But God was not going to let that happen now that Adam and Eve had fallen into temptation and become impregnated with sin. He could not allow sin…disobedience, to go on unjudged.
That Tree and its fruit was exclusive in every respect.
If you read Revelation 22:2 you will read about ‘A Tree of Life”. This Tree is not said to give eerlasting life, but is meant for Heavenly enjoyment. This Tree is an enhancer of the life that those who are washed in the blood of the Lamb already enjoy in Heaven. For everything in Heaven is about Life.
…..quite unlike that other place called Hell…which is all sbout separation from God and His light, love and glory. Hell is all about everlasting torment and trouble and woe.
The second Tree in the middle of the Garden of Eden is also quite unique in every respect. It to has one kind of fruit but has two types of substance to them; a portion which is Good – desirable, pleasant, inviting, etc, and portion that will produce death. Both these trees were while distincly very tangible, also spiritual in quality.
How can this be? It is easy. People have been known to place a poisonous substance in a very appetising meal or drink. Everything about the poisoned food or drink looks fine, but it has death impregnated into its structure.
If man can do this on his level, it is not too hard for God to do it on His level. But this Tree would not just promote physical death, but would actually result in those who ate being separated from God. God is the source of all life eternal and physical. Adam and Eve were given opportunity to enjoy both.
Why then put that second Tree in the Garden? God wanted them to chose between life and death. And God allowed the Tempter to tempt them …having been ALREADY WARNED ABOUT THE DANGER. IT WAS THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO HEED THAT ADVICE AND BE ALERT AT ALL TIMES.
God makes choices, and He wanted His children to have that same opportunity and responsibility, and He was making them as His children accountabie to Himself. God sees, God knows, and God Judges.
We all have that choice every day of our lives to chose between life and death, physically AND spiritually. It is up to us individually who have become ‘mature’.
So this picture of the two distinct Trees in the middle of the Garden is clearly a picture for us which answers your very good question.

In addition, let me also refer to God’s first creation day in Genesis 1:3-5. In this day God spoke into being light. That light was to pierce the present darkness. But God did not want that darkness and light to be mixed up in any way. So having seen that the light He spoke into being was good, He separated the light and the darkness for all time. He called light – Day, and darkness – Night.
It is good for us that these two things are distinct. That is a picture of God’s attitude and action toward all spiritual light and darkness. He will not allow the two to remained mixed forever if man or the devil has mixed them up. That is why there is no Darkness in Heaven nor any Night, and there is no Light, nor Day in Hell.

Let me say futher that the Tree of Life speaks of Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ alone as the source of eternal Life to all those who believe in Him and fully trust in Him alone, and call on Him only for salvation.
The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, is about knowledge, Good knowledge, and Bad knowledge, all mixed up together. Even could not see what was so bad about it. It looked very good to her. It looked good enough to eat. So she took it and ate. Still nothing seemed to have happened. So kind woman that she was, she wanted to share her religious experinece with her husband….”It really is good love…there is nothing bad in it at all…and look I am still alive…we must have heard God wrong…have some, you will enjoy it…it is said to make us wise knowing Good and Evil.”

Suppose some one offered you that ‘drink’ we spoke of earlier. It looks good, it smells good…good enough to enjoy, so you pick it up and start to drink it, when suddenly someone alerts you to the fact that it is indeed poisoned and will kill you if you continue. Are you going to keep drinking it based on your senses? Wouldn’t you normally stop and spit out what was still in your mouth and perhaps gag? Wouldn’t you thrust it away in utter disgust?

“How can a Church both be centered around Jesus and anti-Christ at the same time?”
Satan never goes around telling anyone “I AM THE DEVIL!!!l. BEWARE!!! I hate your guts. I intend to destroy the image and likeness of God that is still in you. I am out to steal your faith, your integrity, to killl your body and see your soul and body destroyed in Hell and after that in the Lake of Fire.”

Satan is far too shrewed for that Chris. He would never achieve any of his destructive work in man if he took that approach. The reason why he has decievd most of humanity – Jesus said that many will perish and that few will be saved.
Satan always puts enough about Jesus Christ into his lethal pot of mixture. He always mixes enough truth (about Jesus) into his lies (anti-christ), or enough lies into the truth…he works either way to get his desired result and to see souls damned in Hell forever. And he thoroughly mixes it so that you cannot see anything but the good…UNLESS GOD OPENS YOUR SPIRITUAL EYES.

But you have to ask God for yourself my friend. On the Day of Judgment When you stand before God on your own without having any pope or priest or ‘mary’ to speak for you, you willl give an account of yourself to Him who knows all things. Then, if not before, you will find out that every pope in history is also in the same boat as you on that day. They will not be able to help you Chris. Only Jesus…only Jesus…only Jesus.

You also said – “I will keep you in my prayers so that you may find what you seek, as I hope you will for me.” If you deem the apostle Paul to have been a wonderfull example of godliness to follow, read his prayer in Ephesians 1:15-23, and pray that one for yourself and those you care about every day. Pray it for your priest too.

Chris, I was raised Catholic and went to Mass every Sunday and Catachesm before Mass, until I went away to College. The drastic change of being away from home made me begin to question God and who He was. I later lived a life of much depression and disillusionment until I finally asked Jesus into my heart at age 30. No more depression, no more wondering, no more feeling lost and confused, no more drowning my sorrows in alcohol and overeating. The joy of the Lord became my strength, along with the knowledge of who the Bible says I am in Christ now that I am saved. No First Holy Communion, no communion where the host supposedly became the actual body and blood of Jesus every Sunday, No confirmation, No confession no to a man and repetitive prayers as a penance could save me or be my joy and strength because they are all false teachings and man made. They are not Biblical. You can preach it and believe it until the cows come home or Jesus returns, but the Roman
Catholic teachings are not based on the Truths of the Bible. I am glad I am saved. Although the Catholic Church tried to convince me I was going to heaven because I was Catholic and had received all the timely Sacrements, I was full of fear and doubt and was still in my sin. Not until I got saved , admitting I was a sinner in need of a Savior and then asking Jesus to come into my heart with the intention to put Him first in my life, making Him Lord of my life was I cleansed of all my sins and on my way to heaven when I die. BTW Any false Christian Church is going to speak of Jesus and to the one who does not really know the Word of God, it will possibly seem like the Truth, while it is steeped in heresy and false teaching. We have to compare everything we believe and everything we are presented with to the Word of God. The Roman Cathollic religion is not in agreement with the Bible. It adds to and takes away big time and therefore it is an abomination to God . Harsh but True! There is a way that seems right to a man but it leads to damnation.It does not lead to Eternal Life. The truth is not in a Church. It is in the Bible, The Word of God.

Just for the record. I have a number of family members who are Roman Catholic, and this grieves me much. It is a great deception. My orayer is that Chris and my family, will yet get to see the glories of Jesus Christ, without any mixture.

I don’t think, as I said that it matters who I was really addressing because it was for anyone really who might also wonder about the Roman Catholic Church. I am also burdened by those, my family, your family, and hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of families that are blindly following the leading of the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church. Right now even the Charasmatics and Pentecosatals are leading their troops into the enemies camp, as if they are friendly. I think the word that you use, Mixture, is a little weak! The Roman Catholic church is not founded on scripture and does not and can not absolve anyone of their sins. The RC is full of “heresy.” It is leading the blind who are fallung away to hell. I went back and read the article Chris challenged Daved to read. There are many places in it where it is easy to show Chris where they do not line up with scripture. Matthew i8:9 is not referring to forgiving sins but rather being able to heal the sick and work miracles. Jesus did give his apostles the power to do these things,heal and work miracles, as he wills and In His Name. However He never gave us the power to forgive them of there sin nature that they were Born with. If someone sins against me I am suppose to forgive them for”hurting me so to speak.” But I cannot absolve them of that sin. That type of forgiveness is to keep my heart pure and free and not to hold them in comtempt, but it is never to absolve them of sin. The Bible teaches that the Word of God is pure! It is powerful and able to quinch all the firey darts of the devil. And it will not return void I think the most powrful way to show someone their error is to go to the scriptures concerning that specific subject and show them what God says as opposed to what they are believing. We can try to paint word pictures and elaborate with analogies, and on and on but it is the Word of God that will penetrate. The Word is filled with the ability to correct and subsequently open someones eyes ! Chris is very learned in what the RC teaches. Someone has to go back to the details of that to show him the error. And hopefuly he and or others will let the Holy Spirit show them the truth.

Hi Chris; If I might make a observation about understanding the scriptures; faith is what pleases God and faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God. So often we basis our faith on how we feel about any particular thoughts or feelings we might hold. But if it contradicts God’s word ( AV JKJB) then it would be wise to reject our ways and follow the good shepherd way. The RRC history is replete with forbidding God flock to read his word or own a bible; and when they couldn’t burn God holy word; they corrupted it though infiltration of protestant seminaries. The war is subtle but nonetheless real and we as true believers in Christ Jesus our Lord need not be ignorant of Satan devices and must fight the good fight of faith. That first step is taken by coming out of her that you be not partaker in her plagues.

Concerning my last comment, I am sorry that in my haste to respond before tending to some other things, I quoted in reference to Matthew 8:9, which was the wrong scripture. I meant to say Matthew 9:8 which is very different. So in response to my last comment using the correct scriptures, I would like to clarify my previous comments. In the article “Forgiveness of Sins” from “Catholic Answers To Defend the Fatith”at http://www.catholic.com/tracts/the-forgiveness-of-sinswhich, which Chris challenged David to read, the author of the ariticle makes a comment in reference to Matthew 8:5-8, where Jesus heals a paralytic. The author of the article comments, speaking of Jesus, and I quote “He exercised this power in his human capacity as the Messiah or Son of man, telling us, “the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins” (Matt. 9:6). But the truth is that was never said here nor implied by Jesus or God in these scriptures. You cannot glean that from these scriptures. If you read closely as Jesus healed a paralytic, he said to him, “Take courage, my son, your sins are forgiven. And hearing Him say this, the Scribes were mumbling to themselves that He was a blaspheming.” So Jesus turned to them, and said, which is easier, to forgive sins or to heal? And the verses continue to say that after Jesus left, the multitudes glorified God , “who had given such authority to men.”
So here we see, nobody spoken of here watching Jesus actually knows He is God or believes He is the Messiah because what is said here is that Scribes thought He was a blasphemer, which God can not be, and the multitudes saw Him as a man who was given supernatural powers. They thought at the time that Jesus was a mere man like them. They did not worship Jesus as Messiah nor did they Praise Him as God but rather they praised the God they knew. And nowhere does this indicate that God had given the power to forgive sins and to heal the sick in these Scriptures. Jesus did however ask the crowd,” which is easier, to forgive sins or to heal”, but the crowd misinterpreted him. You cannot support the notion that Jesus was giving his ability or authority to man to forgive sin or heal the sick using these Scriptures. This is a wrong interpretation of these scriptures.

However, we can go to other scriptures, namely Matthew 10:1 where we read that Jesus summoned the 12 disciples and He “gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out and to heal every kind of disease and every kind of sickness.” And again in Matthew 10:8 he told his disciples basically the same thing. And, yes, in the Great Commission, He told all believers in Mark 16:17 that they “would lay hands on the sick and they would recover.” So we see many times where Jesus gave the Apostles and then all believers through the Great Commission, the authority and power to heal the sick in His name.” I add that of course the power is not in us but rather comes from Jesus, as we pray in His name, yet He clearly says He gives the believers that power and authority. But what He has never said in any of these Scriptures is that He gives us authority and power to forgive or absolve anyone of their sins. This is a false teaching and not biblical and therefore the Catholic Church is wrong in teaching this and making it one of their doctrines.

In all actuality, the article is full of additions to the Scriptures, something the Catholic Church is notorious for. Penance is not found anywhere in scripture. Infant Baptism is not found. It is just amazing the extent the RC will go to in order to Control it’s parishioners rather than leading them into a personal relationship with Christ. They do this by injecting various requirements into the text, as if they had always been there. In Gal.1: 8,9 the Bible says that Apostle Paul speaks by the Holy Spirit that if anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed.
In all actuality this article alone is riddled with false teachings. How do we know? Because the Lord shows us so through the Scriptures. The Pope and the RC cannot be our source of Truth. It must be the Words of the Bible.

PS The Truth is that Jesus never ” exercised this power in his “human capacity” as the Messiah or Son of man, telling us, “the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins” (Matt. 9:6). What in the world does” human capacity as the Messiah or Son of man possibly mean?!!! Yes, He was fully human and fully God, but He did not exercise the first healling and miracle in his “human capacity.” That is the RCC’s own spin on this in order to support the priests’ supposed authority to forgive sins. It is the RC Churches” false explanation of why a man can forgive sins. The Truth is Jesus exercised every healing and miracle and forgave every sin in His “capacity as God.” The other is nothng but a lie that they use to say a mere man can absolve another’s sin as in the act of Confession and Penance. The scripture says in 1 John 1:9 that we are to go to God directly. It says, “If we confess our sins, He( Jesus, God, the Holy Spirit) is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” The minute we confess, He cleanses. Penance is man made and not found in scripture. It is added and therefore heresy. The RCC method of confessing sins is a means of controlling the Parishoners and keeping them dependant on a system instead of the Lord and it is not Truth and therefore heresy. My Mom, who was not Catholic but who had to sign papers agreeing to raise her 5 children to be in the RCC, in order to marry my Catholic Dad in the RCC, told us at an early age that it seemed to her one of the worst things the RCC did to it’s followers was to take away from them the ability to go straight to God with their sin and for forgiveness. She felt many people in their shame held back going to the priest or waited a long time in their guilt before they got the courage to go. Some probably never went and many of those probably never knew they could go directly to God. I think she was close to understanding how seriously this deception violated the people. Again, it is the Word of God that is our guide and a light to our path. Not a pope, not a man, not tradition. And who is the Word of God? Jesus is the Word made flesh that dwelt among us. If we love Jesus we will Love His Word. And Jesus also tells us that if we Love Him , we will Keep His Word. Not a Pope’s Word. NOt a man’s . Not a message from an Angel. Only the Word of God, the Bible. If any man brings another Gospel other than what Paul preached, let Him be accursed. We must compare, as the Bareans did, every thing a man preaches, to see if it is in total agreement with the Word of God. If not, it is not the Truth. and we must not receive it as Truth. And this is only one lie among I would venture to say hundreds that the RCC unfortunately continues to deceive their followers with.

Ian, very well put on the asking questions part as a mode of valuable discussion. I have questions, albeit not purely rhetorical, because I think that we can most certainly learn from one another, at the very least deal with the appearance of misunderstanding each of us has for the other’s position. One of many questions I have is: What does St. John mean when he says in John 20:30 “Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. 31 But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”? I am under the impression that Jesus had much more to say and do than what is written in the finite volumes of man. Are not each of us to gain a personal relationship with Jesus through the Holy Spirit speaking to us through His Word? And would that not be something that is revealed to each of us according to our ability to hear and understand, even after the final word of Scripture was written?

In humility and Christ,

Chris

The Lord Jesus has plenty more to say, but He will say it when we go to be with Him. If we don’t accept the Scriptures as complete, anyone can add whatever they like to Scripture and teach all kinds of error. We know the end, Revelation tells us and we have everything we need in our bibles. God has revealed to us what is needful and no more.

Have you repented and believed on the Lord Jesus Christ and His shed blood alone for the forgiveness of your sins? If you are relying on anything, ir anyone else to save you, you are not fully resting on Christ and that us not salvation. If you try to stand in anything but Christ’s righteousness on judgement day, you will be offering God filthy rags and you do not want to do that. Faith without works is dead, but those works are a result of regeneration, not the cause. Salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in the Lord Jesus Christ alone. Come out of her, Chris, or perish with her. You are a Law breaker (God’s Law), you are guilty and will be punished, if you do not flee to Christ. Come unto Christ and He will give you rest. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved. Come to Christ an empty handed sinner and be washed in His precious blood.

Chris, what does the scripture mean when it tells us not to tamper with the words written in the Cannon of Scripture? Please read this explaination from http://www.letusreason.org/Biblexp117.htm

“The Bible says in several places not to add to his words, how can this be true when other books were added afterwards?What it means is that one is not to add their own words to what God gave. Each one is a specific book that was complete that man was not to add or subtract from. The Bible is a collection of all 66 books that are of the Old and New Testament.Deuteronomy 4:2 “You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take anything from it”(also Deuteronomy 12:32). The reason God is so adamant on this is because “The entirety of Your word is truth” (Psalms 119: 160).”Add thou not unto His words, lest He reprove thee, and thou be found a liar” Proverbs 30:6.
In our day there is the belief in “progressive revelation” that originates from outside the Word. What right does anyone have to teach what is not in Scripture as if it is Scripture? False teachers do not want to submit to its original intent, so they do not seek what Scripture actually (exegesis) means, instead, they conform it to what they want it to mean (isogesis). They will look to another source as their authority because they are not under God’s authority. This is why Paul admonishes us in 1 Corinthians 4:6: “not to think beyond what is written” (exceed or go past). Why? So pride will not have an opportunity to operate and puff us up. It is pride that makes one participate in false doctrine which makes him spiritually destructive to himself and others who listen to him.
The reason God is so adamant on this is because “The entirety of Your word is truth” (Psalms 119: 160). Proverbs 30:5-6: “Every word of God is pure; he is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.” If we look at the context it saying “Every word of God.” God is stating for MAN not to add to his words. Adding does not only mean additional words, but can also mean changing them to mean what they do not. When you add new words as equal to Scripture you are really taking away from Scripture.
In the book of Revelation which is prophecy completes the Bible, just as Genesis began the Bible, it states “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this Book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this Book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the Book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this Book” Revelation 22:18-19.
Of all the books Revelation has the strongest warning as it has to do with the end of world system and the coming of the Lord to restore righteousness.”

Chris, The Written Word is sufficient for everything we need for this life that we may serve Jesus and and live righteously in Him. God has made it simple. Unlke other religions that have to go here there and everywhere to find truth, we have it all in the 66 books of the Bible, the Holy Spirit breathed, inspired Words of Our Heavenly Father and Jesus who were all there in the Beginning!

A lot of what you said makes sense, but Rome never killed any prophets, that would be Jerusalem.

David July 9, 2015 at 4:05 pm

Thank you for your comment Rachel 🙂 Since Revelation was written in 95 A.D. and it’s pointing forward to events in the future, it’s not speaking about the Old Testament prophets, but rather about all of the prophets that the Father sent during the history of the Church. Examples are Peter Waldo in the 12th century. John Wycliffe in the 14th century. John Huss of the 15th century. Jerome of Prague of the 15th century. William Tyndale of the 16th century. Master John Bradford in the 16th century.

A great example is John Huss (a.k.a. Jan Huss, 1372-1415) a well-educated man from Bohemia, who came under the influence of Wycliffe’s writings, which caused him to break with the church of Rome.

He testified “The Pope is … the true Antichrist, of whom it is written, that he sitteth in the temple of God, among the people where Christ is worshiped…”

Among his dying words he proclaimed, “In 100 years, God will raise up a man whose calls for reform cannot be suppressed.”

The name “Huss” meant goose in the Bohemian language, and he said “This day ye are burning a goose; but from my ashes will arise a swan, which ye will not be able to roast.”

Almost exactly 100 years later, in 1517, Martin Luther nailed his famous 95 Theses of Contention (a list of 95 issues of heretical theology and crimes of the Roman Catholic Church) onto the church door at Wittenberg, which sparked the Protestant Reformation. The prophecy of John Huss had come true!

John Huss was condemned as a Heretic by the Catholic Church and was burned to death by a bonfire made up of his books on July 6, 1415. He died singing to the Lord. His ashes were gathered and cast into the nearby Rhine River.

All of these prophets of God testified against the Papal Church, and all of them were killed by the Papal Church for their testimony. You can read their words against the Popes @ http://christianitybeliefs.org/end-times-deceptions/historic-witnesses-against-the-antichrist-roman-beast-the-popes-of-rome/

Thank you for your reply. I never really thought of them as prophets. I’m still having a hard time believing that. I have never met a prophet and presumed they died out with the completion of the Scriptures. The only ‘prophets’ I know of are all self proclaimed and false. I will pray that the Lord would show me the truth about it. One more question if you don’t mind… I believe that Daniel’s 70 weeks are fulfilled, but what of the man of sin? Do you believe that a final Pope will fulfill that role? And how do you believe he will gain such power? Or do you believe it is ongoing through church history? Thanks and may the Lord bless you and yours.

David July 10, 2015 at 8:02 am

Rachel, if you do a word study in the New Testament, you find verses like these that speak of New Testament prophets:

And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.” 1 Corinthians 12:28

which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets:” Ephesians 3:5

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,” Ephesians 4:11

but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets.” Revelation 10:7

As for the Man of Sin, he rose to power in the 6th century. The Man of Sin, the Antichrist, is a position, not just one man. It is like the President of the United States. The Antichrist is the office of the Papacy, which has been fulfilled by many men. There will be a final Pope, perhaps Francis, but the man of sin is the Popes of Rome.

Here is a study that explains that fulfillment. http://christianitybeliefs.org/end-times-deceptions/antichrist-in-the-temple-deception/

I appreciate your desire to learn the truth 🙂

Rachel you are right. Jerusalem is the Harlot, she killed the prophets, and will be the Capital City of the world when the Pope moves their to rule the One World Religion and One World Government. I truly believe the White Pope will be over the Religion part and the Black Pope will rule the government part.

It was Jerusalem that had the truth and she turned her back on Yahweh and in the end lays down with the kings of the earth and this false religious system that Yahweh will destroy at His coming.

You point to the White Pope and Black Pope as controlling the One World government, which confirms that Revelation is talking about the Antichrist Popes and the False Prophet Jesuit Generals.

Zionist Jews are Catholic Jews, but Israel has to sign Jerusalem over to the Papacy, which will not happen, until the time is right to do so. When it does happen the Papacy will put the person of their choice in office in Israel to make that commitment happen. It’s Yahweh’s plan they must go by, not the Pope’s or Jesuit’s plans, even though they are part of those plans. We are definitely living in prophecy times now seeing the stage being set-up for the final play.

Yes, being that the Beast is this Roman Religious system, so how it all exactly pans out remains to be seen, but the whole truth will be known before it happens.

Wow, thank you David for your tremendous research and tireless hunger for Truth! I had most of these pieces of the puzzle but just couldn’t seem to tie Islam to Rome and have it make sense in my mind, even though the current Jesuit Pope has teased the idea of “Chrislom” the joining of “Christianity” & Islam.

I have a 20 year quest for Truth as a foundation of scattered knowledge – you have helped me put the pieces into place, painting a clear picture. I was not looking for this when I found it, I believe I was led here by the Holy Spirit… I’m not saying you’re 100% accurate (What man is? I’m also not saying you’re not 100% accurate.) but you have helped tremendously & for that I say thank you… Jesus Christ is Lord of lords and King of kings, He is the Messiah – the only begotten Son of God. All Praise, Honor and Glory to the Most High God, Creator of all things & to His Son, King Jesus! Amen.

If you study the name Jesus Christ out, you would find that it is two pagan sun deity names. Constantine a sun worshiper is said to have seen a cross, a sun symbol, and he was he one who started Christianity. They took Yahweh’s name out of the scriptures and filled it with a lot of pagan deity names and pagan words used within paganism. Christianity will become the One World Religion, and it is this, that Yahweh is telling His people to come out of during the Tribulation Period, when the whole truth is taught and when Yahweh will pour the Latter Rain of His Spirit out. This is when you will see the healings and miracles done like in the book of Acts. Yahweh returns when all the armies of every nation goes against Jerusalem.

Thank you for your comment 🙂 The name Jesus Christ is discussed in the The Names Of The Father And The Son study. The Falling Away of 2 Thessalonians 2 was fulfilled during the 4th century when the Roman Bishops and Emperor Constantine created the religion of Christianity, which is Babylonian/Roman god worship under the guise of Biblical religion. They replaced Yahuah’s Holy Feast Days with Easter and Christmas. They replaced the Biblical lunisolar calendar with a Sun-based calendar. And they changed the names of the personal, covenant names of the Father and the Son, to pagan, generic names.

I agree totally with that David,,,,that’s when the great falling away happened, that’s when the Roman Empire fell so the Holy Roman Empire and the Papacy could come to the forefront. Scriptures prophesied it and follows this little horn (Papacy) though to it’s end. All true, we use the Pope Gregorian calendar today.

Hello:
You sent me an email to confirm. Sadly, I don’t click on links in emails. Perhaps I’ll never know some things. We must be careful in this awful world and I don’t think on this side of time anyone can have 100%. Jesus said hold on to what you have until I come. I have enough knowledge to distinguish a fake from the truth. I believe you are sincere but I guess I’ll just lurk. Maybe if Jesus counts me in in the next new world I will see you there and tell you how I cried and laughed at all the teaching you posted. I have been baptized and was very afraid as I fold in front of a crowd but He was ripped to shreds for me that was the least I could do for Him. I believe He is my savior and trust Him 100%. Can you believe a man approached me while I was in line waiting to be baptized and said to me, if you’re not comfortable you don’t have to do this. I looked up at him and said no, I have to. I believe the devil will try to take any and everyone he can down with him. I really enjoy your teaching. You’ll be rewarded greatly.

In His love,
Shirley

Shirley, you are right about it hurting God the way the ‘church’ is on all fronts. Yet there is still time, to draw near t o God and HE WILL draw near to us…that’s His promise. The problem I see is that we are not hungry enough for Him and His Word, not thirsty enough for His Living water…which john plainly says is the Promised Holy Spirit (Jn 7), who would reveal Jesus Christ to us, in us and through us to a darkened world.

First Love!!?? Have we left our Lord Jesus while retaining Him in name and habit? Have we become lukewarm through compromise with so many things, even good things, making them NO. ! instead of Jesus the Risen Christ. Have we leant on the arm of flesh, our own, or someone else’s and not on the unfailing arms of our father in Heaven? Each one of in the time left must examine ourselves and prepare ourselves for the Bridegroom’s call…we may look really nice on the outside but have we changed our inner garments?
No man,, no institution is our Saviour. We have one Mediator not two or three. Jesus Christ, and He alone is our Mediator.
let us exhort one another to Keep seeking Jesus Christ in all His fulness to be worked in us.

God bless you all in Jesus

David, this is for you. I began to learn about the Jesuits, mostly thru reading here,at at this site. I thought an article I read this week might spark your curiosity as it did mine. The article is in our local newspaper, the Virginian Pilot, on Wednesday7/29/15. The article is titled, “Why was a Catholic artifact buried in a Protestant colony?” subtitled “Mystery At Jamestown” After discovering four graves on Protestant Church property, they also found with one of the graves, a small silver box containing items which could “rewrite history” the article read. After seeking high and low for someone who could open the box without damaging what was inside, they finally hit payday and inside the box was discovered what they believe to be relics of the Catholic Faith. The grave was discovered to be that of Captain Gabriel Archer, one of Jamestown’s first settlers and a prominent and key leader in the settlement. He was buried in a “place of honor” inside a Protestant Church.The shock is that our settlers came here to escape the Catholic Church and anyone thought to be Catholic was considered to be a spy, the article explained. The box was on top of the coffin and an “M” was engraved on the top of the box. Further research found that Archer arrived with the first ships and he strongly disliked Captain John Smith. In addition to the Catholic relic find in his grave he was also buried with his head to the east which is reserved for clergy in a protestant church burial. Wow. Sounds like a Jesuit to me, as far back as the first Settlers of America! If so, the Jesuits will go to great lengths to cover up the reason Captain Archer was there in the first place. Were the Jesuits quick enough to have there men here with the first Landing in Virginia, which was actually about 5 miles from where I grew up in Va Beach? The Director of archeology says he “can’t let go” of this find,”Too many goose bump moments.” One of the headlines says, “Was he the leader of some secret Catholic cell at Jamestown? Was the box intentionally sealed to hide its contents?”You can read the whole article at pilotonline.com Sooo interesting.

Thanks Karen, that is interesting! They rewrote history to say that people came here to escape taxes, but the truth is that Protestants came here to escape the persecution of the Jesuits of the Roman Catholic Church. But the Jesuits were at work early on with people like the Carroll’s, who donated the land for their city-state of Washington D.C., and who founded Jesuit Georgetown University, which helps control this country. The land that was donated was called Rome, MARYland. Go figure!

David, As I researched Georgetown University, the Jesuits, and the Carrolls, I learned that John Carroll actually was Irish, which makes good sense.

David August 2, 2015 at 8:02 am

Karen, I’m glad you found some information on the Carroll’s. Interestingly, when America was founded it was 98% Protestant. For the Jesuits to take over the country they caused many Irish Catholics to immigrate to America. Today the borders of Mexico are open, as Mexico is 90% Catholic. Pope Pius IX said “Give me an army saying the Rosary and I will conquer the world.”

Jerusalem on 7 Hills and the Papacy

Revelations 17:7-9

7. And the Messenger said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

8. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

This is a religious beast.

9. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

ROME sits on 7 mountains but JERUSALEM is the WOMAN that sits on 7 mountains and will end up where this Satanic system will end up and will make JERUSALEM the GREAT HARLOT not Rome. That’s why the Pope will move to JERUSALEM for she will be the WORLD CAPITAL CITY, not Rome or any other city.

ROME is where the FALSE BABYLONIAN RELIGION now sits. The modern day name for it is Christianity. Rome is the seat of the religious Babylonian system, Jerusalem left the truth of Yahweh and is the Harlot.

The names of these seven mountains of Rome are:
1. Aventine 2. Palatine 3. Capitoline 4. Caelian 5. Quirinal 6. Viminal 7. Esquiline

Constantine found a village that was built on 7 hills like Rome.

“He erected all the needed edifices for a great capital—a hippodrome, fountains, porticoes and other beautiful adornments. He named it Constantinople and New Rome—and established it as the Roman capital for all the inhabitants of the North, the South, the East, and the shores of the Mediterranean, from the cities on the Danube and from Epidamnus and the Ionian Gulf to Cyrene and Libya.”
~ Sozomen (d. c. A.D. 450) Ecclesiastical History, II.3

Jerusalem will become a thriving WORLD CAPITAL CITY for these two types of governments, ruling over the kings of the earth. When the time comes, she will be the center for world enterprise, commerce, and trade.

The Seven Hills of Jerusalem:
1. Mount Zion 2. Mount Moriah 3. Mount Ophel 4. Mount Bezetha 5. Mount Acra

6. Mount Gareb 7. Mount Goath

All have parts that sit within the walls of Jerusalem.

Revelation 17:2,15,18

2: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

15: And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore (Jerusalem) sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. ( Jerusalem capital of the world)

18: And the woman which thou sawest is that great city (Jerusalem), which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

NOTICE: That city which reigns over the kings of the earth…..This is Jerusalem not Rome, Rome never reigned over the kings of the earth, only a few at a time. So this has to be when Jerusalem becomes the world capital with the Pope moving from Rome to Jerusalem to reign over the kings of the earth. One World Govenment, One World Religion.

Revelation 18:3

3. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

Psalm 125:1-2

1. They that trust in Yahweh are as Mount Zion, Which shall not be moved: it abideth for ever.

2. The mountains are round about Jerusalem; And Yahweh is round about His people, Henceforth, even for evermore.

Revelations 17:10

10: And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.

These are the empires that ruled over Israel starting with the Egyptian Empire being the first and ending with the One World Government with the Papacy over it.

1. Egyptian

2. Babylonian

3. Assyrian

4. Medio-Persian

5. Greecian

FIVE ARE FALLEN:

ONE IS:

6. Roman – At the time of John’s writing of Revelation.

THE OTHER NOT YET COME, MUST CONTINUE A SHORT SPACE:

7. HOLY ROMAN OR PAPACY

The Holy Roman Empire

Revelations 17:11

11: And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

BEAST THAT WAS, IS NOT, IS THE EIGHTH AND IS OF THE SEVEN:

8. PAPACY REVIVES OVER A ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT AND ONE WORLD RELIGION (CHRISTIANITY).

Revelations 17:12-14

12: And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

(10 World Unions, European Union, North American Union, South American Union, African Union, etc. 10 in all.)

13: These have one mind, and shall given their power and strength unto the beast.

14: These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them; for he is Yahweh the Mighty One, and King of kings: and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

verse 12: Ten horns are Ten kings which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

(This world will be split up into 10 sections with a person over each section and it is for a really short time, and they give their power over to the Pope which makes this a One World Government.
10 World Unions, European Union, North American Union, South American Union, African Union, etc. 10 in all.)

verse 13: These have one mind, and give their power and strength to the beast.

(These are at the end time just before Yahweh returns.)

verse 14: These shalt make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them,

(This proves these 10 kings are given power just before the Messiah returns, for the Messiah destroys their armies.

Constantine was the last Emperor of the Roman Empire and started Christianity and made it the state religion of the Roman Empire. Then Constantine changed Secular over Religious to Religious over Secular governments. Constantine was the first Pontifex Maximus (Pope) over the Holy Roman Empire and made Christianity the state religion of the Holy Roman Empire. They had anyone killed who did not come over to Christianty, pagan and Jew alike. The Roman Empire had to fall to reveal this man of transgressions, the POPE. 2 Thess. chapter 2.

Thank you for your comment 🙂 Obviously I disagree with your explanation, as it is contrary to what is declared on the home page, All Roads Lead To Rome. To say that Rome has never reigned over the kings of the earth is ridiculous. The Roman Empire ruled the world in John’s day. The Roman Catholic Church controlled the Roman Earth, commanding the kings to do their bidding in killing the saints in France, Spain, etc. Today the Jesuits of Rome control the world via their three city-states of Vatican City, which controls the world’s religious and political leaders; the City of London, which controls the financial and trade systems of the world; and Washington D.C., which controls the world’s intelligence agencies and military forces.

Zippcodey August 3, 2015 at 7:05 pm

I’m sure you do disagree as would all of Christianity. Are you and everyone else out to find the real truth, as I am too? I was raised in Christianity like most Americans were, but I found the real truth, that brought me completely out of it. How do you know when truth is truly truth? When nothing can come against it, and it just keeps building on itself. It seems Christians know all about other religions except their own, just as I did.

Like you, you know that the Papacy started Islam, as I do. You do not realize the Pontifex Maximus, which the Emperors of Rome who also held that title, as did Emperor Constantine who started Christianity. That title is traced back to Nimrod who turned his back on Yahweh and became the first false messiah to men.

History repeats itself and scriptures even state that fact. Christianity like I said was the state religion of the Roman and Holy Roman Empires and it’s end will be the One World Religion, forced upon the world with the threat of death, as before. The Pope right now through the Ecumenical Movement is bringing all the Protestant denominations back under his authority, as he is also out to deceive the other world religious belief systems, to look to him as a deity, to bring a cure to all the world’s woes.

It is a proven fact that he is out for control of Jerusalem, a proven fact that his throne is going to be moved to the Dome of the Rock and a proven fact that a Pope will rule from Jerusalem.

Los Angeles Times December 12, 1984, quoted Pope John Paul II as saying, “Don’t go to God for forgiveness of sins, come to me.” “And God himself is obliged to abide by the judgment of his priest and either not to pardon or to pardon, according as they refuse to give absolution, provided the penitent is capable of it.” — St. Alphonsus De Liguori, in The Dignity of the Priesthood, p. 27.

“Even if the Pope were Satan incarnate, we ought not to raise up our heads against him, but calmly lie down to rest on his bosom. He who rebels against our Father is condemned to death, for that which we do to him we do to Christ: we honor Christ if we honor the Pope; we dishonor Christ if we dishonor the Pope. I know very well that many defend themselves by boasting: “They are so corrupt, and work all manner of evil!” But God has commanded that, even if the priests, the pastors, and Christ-on-earth were incarnate devils, we be obedient and subject to them, not for their sakes, but for the sake of God, and out of obedience to Him.” (St. Catherine of Siena, SCS, p. 201-202, p. 222, quoted in Apostolic Digest, by Michael Malone, Book 5: “The Book of Obedience”, Chapter 1: “There is No Salvation Without Personal Submission to the Pope”).

“Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff.” (Declaratio quod subesse Romano Pontifici est omni humanae creaturae de necessitate salutis)

YAHWEH MESSIAH IMPALED
1. THE LAST DAY MESSAGE THAT WILL TURN THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN ONE LAST TIME.

John 1:1 IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, and THE WORD WAS WITH YAHWEH, AND THE WORD WAS YAHWEH.

Colossians 1:15-17,19
15. WHO IS THE IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE YAHWEH, the first born of all creation;
16. FOR IN HIM WERE ALL THINGS CREATED, IN THE HEAVENS AND UPON THE EARTH, THINGS VISIBLE, INVISIBLE, WHITHER THRONES OR DOMINIONS OR PRINCIPALITIES OR POWERS; ALL THINGS HAVE BEEN CREATED THROUGHT HIM, AND TO HIM.
17. AND HE IS BEFORE ALL THINGS, AND IN HIM ALL THINGS CONSIST.
19. FOR IT WAS THE GOOD PLEASURE OF THE FATHER THAT IN HIM SHOULD ALL THE FULNESS DWELL;

Colossians 2:9 FOR IN HIM DWELLETH ALL THE FULNESS OF YAHWEH BODILY.

2 John 1:7 For MANY DECEIVERS ARE ENTERED INTO THE WORLD, WHO CONFESS NOT THAT YAHWEH MESSIAH IS COME IN THE FLESH. THIS IS A DECEIVER A ANTI-MESSIAH.

Acts 18:28 For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publicly, SHOWING BY THE SCRIPTURES THAT YAWHEH WAS THE MESSIAH.

Acts 17:3 Opening and alleging, that the Messiah must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and THAT THIS IMMANUEL, WHOM I PREACH UNTO YOU, IS YAHWEH.

1 Corinthians 2:2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Yahweh Messiah and Him Impaled.

1 Corinthians 1:23 But WE PREACH YAHWEH IMPALED, UNTO THE HEBREWS A STUMBLING BLOCK AND UNTO THE GENTILES FOOLISHNESS;

As you can see, Constantine and his bishops changed the scriptures to make them void of salvation. Jerome’s Latin Vulgate was the only scriptures to be had for over 1000 years, locked up in the Latin tongue and only priests like Wycliffe, Tyndale and Luther were allowed to teach the people in a language that they did not know. All Luther, Wycliffe and Tyndale had to start their translations with was Jerome’s Latin Vulgate and then each others. Why did this happen? Once again study scriptures to find the truth.

Revelation 14:6-7
6. And I saw another Messenger fly, in the midst of heaven, having the “Everlasting Word…to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation,
7. Saying with a loud voice, Fear Yahweh, and give esteem to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

Matthew 24:14 And this Word of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations and then shall the end come.

. YAHWEH’S WORD HID: This was suppose to happen as you can see.

Romans 1:25
They exchanged the truth about Yahweh for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator–who is forever praised.

Isaiah 25:7
7: And He will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people and the veil that is spread over all nations.

Amos 8:11,12
11. Behold, the days come, saith Yahweh, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the Words of Yahweh.
12. And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the Word of Yahweh, and shall not find it.

Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Jeremiah 16:19 Yahweh, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say , Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit .

IT WAS OUR FOREFATHERS WHO DID NOT BELIEVE IN THE DAYS OF PETER AND PAUL AND WE INHERITED THEIR LIES.

Romans 10:14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

Christians are going to have a rude awakening and very soon.

Zippcodey,
I feel you may be right about Rome relocating to Jerusalem. It is probably seen as the ultimate prize for them.
A question: If the RCC is the harlot, then who in your estimation is this Beast that utterly destroys her?
It must be a very powerful entity having control of arms of war, surely.
It must be an entity that has an old and deep-seated hatred for the harlot, which it fully unleashes when the time is right.
Who is the right candidate?
How can it be anything other than International Zionism? They seemingly control anything and everything that is worth controlling. I think the Jews hate every form of Christianity. They alone of all the peoples of the world have a plan for world rule, and for all the Goyim to be their slaves and lick the dust from off their feet. Satan has the same age-old desire. Will Satan achieve his aims through the ‘vessel’ of the Jews or through the ‘vessel’ of the RCC? Or could it all be vice versa?
What do you think?

karen Graves August 3, 2015 at 8:52 pm

To Zippcodey,
Truth is in the Person of Jesus Christ and “unless you have been born again, you cannot even see into the Kingdom of God.” John 3:3. When a person gets Born Again, the term used by Jesus, the Spirit of God comes into him and now His eyes are open to the Truths of the Kingdom. Without the Spirit, no man can see, understand, comprehend the Truth. Obviously you were never Born Again , received the Spirit of God into your Spirit. “In Him is Life and the Life is the light of men.” As Born Again believers, we no longer have to seek to find Truth. We can stop looking here, there, and everywhere for Truth, as many do, because we have found Jesus, not in Christianity, a religion, but in a relationship with the Creator of Heaven and Earth, the Author and Finisher of our Faith. When you have Jesus in your heart one need not look any further. You have found the pearl of great price and no one can tell you differently. You talk about “real Truth.” We are not ones to differentiate between Truth and Real Truth” because that very thought denotes doubt on the part of the person . Truth is simply Truth and we found it when we accepted Jesus and then His Word. He said, “if you love me you will love my Word.” And he also as much as said,” if you love me you will keep my Word.” The hunt is over. We know that we know that we know that we have found Truth.

How You Know Who or What is Truly Anti – Messiah

Matthew 7:24 Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock.

Let’s see who the Stumbling Stone, and Corner Stone is.

Psalms 95:1 O come, let us sing unto Yahweh: let us make a joyful noise TO THE ROCK OF OUR SALVATION.

2 Samuel 22:47 Yahweh liveth; and blessed be MY ROCK; and exalted be the Almighty of the ROCK OF MY SALVATION.

Isaiah 8:13-15
13. Bless Yahweh of hosts Himself; and let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread.
14. And He shall be for a refuge; and for A STONE OF STUMBLING AND FOR A ROCK OF OFFENCE to both the houses of Israel, for a trap and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
15. And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.

Matthew 21:44 And whoever falls on this stone will be broken; but on whom ever it falls, it will grind him to
powder.”

NOTE: Isaiah says that Yahweh is this stumbling stone.

1 Corinthians 1:23 But we preach Yahweh impaled, UNTO THE HEBREWS A STUMBLING BLOCK AND UNTO THE GENTILES FOOLISHNESS;

Acts13:27 Because they did not know Him, nor even the voices of the Prophets which are read every Sabbath, have fulfilled them in condemning Him.

Ephesians 2:19-20
19. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the upright, and of the household of Yahweh;
20. And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, YAHWEH MESSIAH HIMSELF BEING THE CHIEF CORNER STONE;

Psalms 118:22 The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.

NOTE: This world has many messiah’s using many names and many preach them crucified on a cross, but how many believe Yahweh is the Messiah and that He was the one who died and was impaled on a tree for the world’s transgressions? This is the end time message that will be preached to the whole world.

Romans 9:32-33
32. Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For THEY STUMBLED AT THE STUMBLINGSTONE;
33. As it is written, Behold, I LAY IN ZION A STUMBLINGSTONE AND ROCK OF OFFENCE: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

1 Peter 2:7-8
7. Unto you therefore which believe He is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THE SAME IS MADE THE HEAD OF THE CORNER,
8. And A STONE OF STUMBLING, AND A ROCK OF OFFENCE, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

1 Samuel 2:2 There is none righteous as Yahweh: for there is none beside thee: NEITHER IS THERE ANY ROCK LIKE OUR YAHWEH.

2 Samuel 22:3 YAHWEH MY ROCK; in Him will I trust: He is my shield, and the horn of my salvation my high tower, and my refuge, my Savior; thou savest me from violence.

From the above it proves Yahweh is that stone of stumbling and the this is not believing that the Messiah is Yahweh in the flesh. He is Yahweh Messiah.

1 Corinthians 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Messiah.

1 Peter 2:4-8
4. Come to him, a living stone, though rejected by mortals yet chosen and precious in Yahweh’s sight, and
5. like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house, to be a righteous priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to Yahweh through Yahweh Messiah.
6. For it stands in scripture: “See, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious; and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.”
7. To you then who believe, he is precious; but for those who do not believe, “The stone that the builders rejected has become the very head of the corner,”
8. and “A stone that makes them stumble, and a rock that makes them fall.” They stumble because they disobey the Word, as they were destined to do.

Romans 9:33 As it is written: “See, I lay in Zion a stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.”

John 10:25 Immanuel answered them, “I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me

John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the NAME of the only begotten Son of Yahweh.

2 Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of Yahweh standeth sure,having this seal, Yahweh knoweth them that are His. And, Let every one that nameth the NAME of the Messiah depart from iniquity.

John 17:1-26

1. These words spake Immanuel, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; esteem thy Son, that thy Son also may esteem thee:
2. As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
3. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true Almighty, and Yahweh Messiah, whom thou hast sent.
4. I have esteemed thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
5. And now, O Father, esteem thou me with thine own self with the esteem which I had with thee before the world was.
6. I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
7. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
8. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
9. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
10. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am esteemed in them.
11. And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Righteous Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
12. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13. And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
15. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
16. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17. Set them apart through thy truth: thy word is truth.
18. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
19. And for their sakes I set apart myself, that they also might be set apart through the truth.
20. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
21. That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22. And the esteem which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23. I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
24. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my esteem, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
25. O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
26. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

2 Corinthians 5:21 For our sake HE MADE HIM to be transgression who knew no transgression, so that in HIM, (WE) might become the “RIGHTEOUSNESS OF YAHWEH”.

Jeremiah 32:5,6
5. Behold, the days come, SAITH YAHWEH, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

Jeremiah 33:15–16
15. In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David, and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.
16. In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell securely. And THIS IS THE NAME BY WHICH (IT) WILL BE CALLED: “YAHWEH IS OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.”

Ezekiel 48:35 All the way around shall be eighteen thousand cubits; and the name of the city from that day shall be: “YAHWEH IS THERE”.

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty One, THE EVERYLASTING FATHER, The Prince of Peace.

Karen, I’m sorry, but Pagan Rome gave the name Jesus Christ for the salvation to Christians. If they would have put BOB, that is the name Christians would be using today for their salvation. I will tell you something else, they also deceived the world by making the birth given name, the name for salvation. The birth given name has nothing to do with salvation. It was given for everyday living and tax purposes as he was growing up. He was not born the Messiah, he was born to become the Messiah. The very reason why you don’t hear nothing about him after his birth, except when he was about 2 years old in a house when the Magi went looking for him, then when he was 12 in the Temple, then when he was in his 30’s when he started his ministry.

Immanuel was the prophesied birth given name. Does not matter except for truth’s sake. He inherited the name above all names. That name is the Father’s name, Yahweh. Everything was done in the Father’s name, not his birth given name. Baptism was done in the Father’s name, Father, Son, Spirit are offices of Yahweh. He is not a trinity. In the name, Yahweh.
He told Philip when you have seen me you have seen the Father. The first thing Yahweh did in Creation was made for Himself flesh to dwell among men, and to become the sacrificial Lamb.

John 1:1 IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, and THE WORD WAS WITH YAHWEH, AND THE WORD WAS YAHWEH.

Colossians 1:15-17,19
15. WHO IS THE IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE YAHWEH, the first born of all creation;
16. FOR IN HIM WERE ALL THINGS CREATED, IN THE HEAVENS AND UPON THE EARTH, THINGS VISIBLE, INVISIBLE, WHITHER THRONES OR DOMINIONS OR PRINCIPALITIES OR POWERS; ALL THINGS HAVE BEEN CREATED THROUGHT HIM, AND TO HIM.
17. AND HE IS BEFORE ALL THINGS, AND IN HIM ALL THINGS CONSIST.
19. FOR IT WAS THE GOOD PLEASURE OF THE FATHER THAT IN HIM SHOULD ALL THE FULNESS DWELL;

Colossians 2:9 FOR IN HIM DWELLETH ALL THE FULNESS OF YAHWEH BODILY.

As you can see, His name could be non other than Yahweh and why Yahweh is the Messiah’s true name. He will not accept any other name for salvation, also proven by scriptures.

Jesus = IE-SOUS or EA-ZEUS,,,,why would Yahweh name him after Zeus?

Dictionary of Christian Lore and Legend, by J. C. J. Metford:

“It is known that the Greek name endings of sus, seus, and sous (which are phonetic pronunciations for Zeus) were attached by the Greeks to names and geographical areas as a means to give honor to their supreme deity, Zeus. Examples given are: Parnassus, a sacred mountain in Greece: the Greek deity of wine and son of Zeus, Dionysus; the Greek hero of the Trojan war was Odysseus, and the “”Greek deity of healing was Iesous or the Latin Iesus/Jesus””. They also changed the names of the prophets EliYahu (whose name means ‘my mighty one is Yah’) and Elyesha (whose name means ‘my mighty one saves’), to ‘Elias’ and ‘Eliseus’ (which means ‘my mighty one is Zeus’). This was done so often that it later was the basis for their rules of written grammar which followed the common or vernacular spoken language.”

Trust me, I was where you are and the hardest thing for me was to realize that the name itself was a lie. Like I said, truth just keeps building on itself and nothing can come against it. That is what happened with the name Jesus Christ too.

To Zippcody,
Additionally, Christians, those who choose to love and obey Jesus, those who choose to follow after holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord, those who know that they are “complete in Him”, hear His voice, understand and are coming into an understanding that the Pope is a deceiver and will not follow Him into his Plan of a One World Religion, and Government and Economy for that matter. And as times passes quickly as it is doing, many more who are Born Again are coming to understand the Endtimes and are making themselves ready. No it will not be the masses. It will be a remnant. And they understand that too. Those who follow Jesus will not be in for a rude awakening. The Holy Spirit is faithful and He is speaking to us and we are responding, with open eyes and open spirits to His calling and direction. Our search was not so much for Truth, as it was for an answer to our agonizing sin that was so unsettling. Once we could admit we were sinners and needed a solution, a Savior, The Holy Spirit was right there to lead us into a relationship with Jesus and now that same Holy Spirit who resides in us is faithful to lead us into all Truth. True, we question things and “have not” many times “because we ask not”, but once we ask in faith, nothing wavering, the Holy Spirit gives the answers to us. ” And this is the condemnation: that light is come into the World, and men loved the darkness rather than the light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light, NEITHER WILL HE COME TO THE LIGHT, LEST HIS DEEDS BE EXPOSED.” Jesus sends His light, the Holy Spirit to each and every one of us and we are either convicted by the light and drawn to it or we are sickened by it and back away from it. One allows the Holy Spirit to reveal his sins to Him and the other runs away, backs away from the light being given. One cries out for Jesus, his Savior, the other looks elsewhere and never feels satisfied they have found the Truth nor do they ever feel complete. They think there must be more to all this. There must be something else to complete this thing called Truth. Yet little do they know it is all wrapped up in who Jesus is and what He has done for us. And the search is never over till they admit they are a sinner and come to the only one who can wash them clean and save them for Eternity, Jesus, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the World, The final sacrifice. And it is there and then that they find rest for their soul. No other place. Only in Jesus. He is the one who made us, He is the one who satisfies our every need. “…That whoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. When you, or anyone for that matter, comes to Jesus, He will give them Living Water and He will thirst no more.” Jesus said, “Marvel not that I said unto thee, you must be Born Again.”

The biggest and hardest thing a Christian will ever do is to realize that the name Jesus is a lie. Once they do, then scriptures will be opened up to them to show the real truth about His Name.

I’m confused after reading all of these comments. Are you a believer in Yahshua and our Almighty Father Yahweh. I am seeing you are very knowledgeable in Scripture but I’m not seeing your point other than the abomination of pagan names that Christians have given to our Messiah and Father…which I am in total agreement with by the way.

Seems they are deleting my comments.

Laura,

If they would not have deleted my comment to Karen your questions would have been answered.

We shall see if this one is deleted too.

The birth given name was Immanuel and no other. Immanuel was born to become the Messiah, he was not born the Messiah. Scriptures showed his birth, when he was about 2, when the magi came, then when he was 12, in the temple and then when he was around 30 and started his ministry.

The birth given name has nothing to do with salvation. It was for tax purposes and everyday living. The birth given name has nothing to do with salvation, because he inherited the Father’s name Yahweh, like when he told Philip when you have seen me you have seen the Father. Yahweh Messiah is the true name of the Messiah. There is no other name for salvation.

Constantine gave Christianity the name Jesus Christ to believe in, it is pagan to the core.

Laura, Immanuel became Yahweh in the Flesh, Yahweh put His Spirit into the flesh of Immanuel Fully. This is why the last day message will be Yahweh Impaled, like it was in the days of Peter and Paul. Yahweh took on the flesh to become the Sacrificial Lamb. Yahweh revealed Himself through the Flesh and the Spirit in the Old Covenant.

What people do not realize is that all the people who died and will die between the days of Peter and Paul and never heard the Word/Truth up to the Tribulation Period when the truth will be taught one more time to every person on earth and His Spirit will be poured out like in the days of Peter and Paul. Those people Yahweh will raise and teach Himself. Scriptures state that people will say we inherited nothing but lies from our forefathers. So there will be no more excuses for them, when Satan is released to deceive the world at the end of the Millennial Kingdom here on earth. Just one way to prove this fact, is once Yahweh takes His people, all that will be left are the non-believers, and Yahweh kills and burns up every last one of them. Then He brings His people right back down to this earth for the Millennial Kingdom, no one goes to heaven. I can prove by scriptures everything that I say.

It seems to me Zippcody is possbly a loner, certainly an antagonizer, and certainly has a lot of facts seemingly to show that “all “Christians are wrong and he is right. “I can prove all this by scripture,” He says; but I have not heard any proof yet, and like I said, I am not sure he is trying to prove anything except that he is right and a lot of people are wrong. Additionally, he is sharing these so called Real Truths without the answers as to how they might come into the same knowledge (Wrong knowledge I might add) he has, not a very loving motive when we are talking about someone’s salvation. I don’t think this is helping many people but I do feel the need to express the fact that what he is saying is not Bible.

I think he is a truthseeker. He is right about coming back to earth its clear in scripture. Jesus is Yeshua not Yahwey. If He was Yahwey then He would know when the date of return is but He said only the father knows. Love is whats missing from this chap you refer to as all who do not help their fellow man towards salvation, towards Yeshua.

Bottom line is that Zipcoddy is not Born Again -yet. “Unless a man is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Those are the words of Jesus, Immanuel, the Son of God, the Bright Morning Star, the Lamb of God, the Holy One, the Word made Flesh, the Pearl of Great Price, Creator of Heaven and Earth, The Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, Our Savior and Lord. The one who suffered and died on the Cross for our sins and Salvation. 2 Cor.5:21 “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us that we might become the righteousness of God in Him,” in Jesus, the very One we will soon see Face To Face! The love of God reaches out to us all that we would be Born Again of the Spirit of God. Jesus desires that Zipcoddy be saved. Jesus taught us to pray that the Holy Spirit would convict the unsaved of Sin and Righteousness and the Coming Judgement.
“And the Spirit and the Bride say “Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And whoseoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”

David August 4, 2015 at 2:51 pm

Hey Karen 🙂 The main point that he was making is that the Messiah’s name is not Jesus Christ. That is a construct of the Roman Church. There is no letter J in Hebrew. And there was not a letter J in English before the 16th century. So His name could not have been Jesus.

Biblical names have meaning. The name Jesus points to Zeus, as it ends in ‘us’, and may mean ‘Hail Zeus.’

The Father’s personal covenant name is Yahuah. His Son’s name is Yahusha, which means “Yahuah Saves”.

You can read this study @ http://christianitybeliefs.org/the-falling-away/the-names-of-the-father-and-the-son/

That does not mean that people who have used the name Jesus are not saved, for the Father judges our hearts, and most people are ignorant of these truths. Salvation is determined and known by the Father, so let’s not try to judge who is and isn’t saved.

As for this discussion between you and Zippcodey, this is the end of it.

Keep learning and growing in the faith, David

David August 4, 2015 at 8:48 pm

Zippcodey, I appreciate that you’ve been teaching some truth, but you’ve also been teaching some false things. Saying that the Holy Spirit has not been sent yet defies Messiah’s word that he would send the Spirit to guide us, which He started at Pentecost. Saying that Messiah’s name is Yahweh just like the Father’s is nonsensical. Besides that, there was no W in Ancient Hebrew, so the name Yahweh was not possible. The Father’s name is Yahuah. Messiah’s name is Yahusha, which means Yahuah Saves. Matthew 1:21
clearly gives the name and the meaning “And she shall give birth to a Son, and you shall call His Name יהושע (Yahusha) for He shall save His people from their sins.”

Implying that people who have believed in Jesus Christ as not saved is wrong, as that would mean that all of the Protestant Reformers, all of the great Pastors during the Great Awakening, and the millions of people that used the name Jesus were not saved. I believe that these things are being made known during our generation, to prepare for His return.

The article you cited about Yahweh was not mine, so I’m not sure what you’re referring to. As for using Jesus Christ on this website, that is for two reasons. 1. It’s only been this year that I learned the truth about the names, which is documented on my The Falling Away of 2 Thessalonians 2 study. 2. I’m trying to teach people prophecy fulfillment on this website. If I use the proper names, it gives them an excuse to dismiss the studies. A link to the names study is clearly provided for the Spirit of Elohim to reveal truth to them.

I haven’t the time to monitor, discuss and correct all that you type. And your spirit is attacking and judgmental. So my friend, I would encourage you to go document your studies somewhere, like your own website. Grace and peace to you! David

David, I am aware that the Jewish, Hebrew, names for God and Jesus cannot be the same as the names written in the Greek and given in the New Testament. A deep study of that might be interesting ,but it surely would not determine my salvation. I am not judging who is and isn’t saved. I am discerning that Zippcody is not saved. He SAID he left Christianity to find the Real Truth. He is the one who says he is not a Christian. “I was raised in Christianity like most Americans were, but I found the real truth, that brought me completely out of it.” Those are his very words. One cannot leave Christianity and be saved. He is speaking out of his head not his heart. If he meant he left formal Christianity but remains a follower of Jesus,a Christian, as we rightfully choose to call it, he surely hasn’t made himself perfectly clear on that one point. Nevertheless, He has been intensely compelled to try to make himself clear over what he says is the “correct name of the Savior”, while at the same time he implies we ,who use the name of Jesus, are not worshiping the same God. It is nonsense, and as you can see it only serves to confuse people and Jesus is not the author of confusion. That is why, I figured I would try to stop the discussion by asking you to, rather than just disappearing. But now you surprise me by implying I am wrong to “judge” his salvation. One thing for sure, this is a case of straining at a gnat while swallowing a camel! Jesus is not hung up on all this. Between you and me Zippcody need not decide that “all Christians are in for a big surprise” because he calls/they call Jesus by another name. To say as he did, ” As you can see, His name could be none other than Yahweh and why Yahweh is the Messiah’s true name. He will not accept any other name for salvation, also proven by scriptures” is to say that all who follow Jesus are not saved.” In this Zippcody has judged the whole body of believers who follow after who they call Jesus by implying they are not saved. This is a gross error and needed to be pointed out( also impaled vs crucified? nothing but straining at a gnat!) Sorry and you need not post this, but I am surprised. No Messianic Jew that I know, ever talked like this, so I was at a loss as to what teaching He follows. It cannot be the Spirit of of our Lord. He does not recognize true believers as believers, as his sisters and brothers. He says Jesus does not accept the name of Jesus for salvation.Bottom line is that is a lie or I am a monkey’s uncle! Heaven help us to be able to discern good and evil, in these last days!

I’m not a Christian, I have no part in the Christian belief system. I am not a Messianic Jew or into Messianic Judaism. Yahweh did away with Temple worship. The Jews use Adonai instead of Yahweh’s name. Yahweh is calling people out for His Name’s sake, not keeping them in what people think is the truth. Christians are taught there will be a 3rd Temple but there will not be. Yahweh will build the 3rd Temple during the Millennial Kingdom. The Papacy is and always has been over all Christianity. Christianity is being proved for what it is and has for some time now.

The two legs that came out of the Roman empire, eastern and western became papal rome and The ottoman empire, I have a map the traces history all the way to the beginning, it clearly shows the western and eastern leg going into these two empires . The woman and the beast, ironed mixed with Clay . We are now seeing the 10 nations and its leader and the woman rising to power at the same time !
The Vatican created Islam, they are the Vatican’s army , When they started losing power in Northern Africa, the Catholic Church created Islam to take that power, because they were losing money ! . Hagar and ishmael ! The sun and the Moon are represented by both ! It says that the beast will turn on the woman, Islam talks about taking the Vatican . One is religious and one is political . And we are in a time of life when both are growing . The pope and Obama met before the first red moon and their meeting during the last . Obama addressed the world October 29, 2008 . 1260 days later we had one of the largest earthquakes ever, 1260 days after that puts us right on September 25, 2015 . We need a president that would allow A caliphate to happen… , Perhaps organize it … And we needed the right help at the time, he was sworn in 3-13-13 . I could go on and on, whether I’m right or you’re right, we all agree that we are coming up on perilous times !!!

Thank you for your comment T.O. 🙂 The Roman Empire ended in 476 A.D. when the last Western Emperor was removed. The Ottoman Empire was founded in 1299. That would effectively invalidate that they were the two legs.

The legs represents the Roman Empire which split between East and West.

The iron-clay feet is the Roman Catholic Church and Muslims/Ottoman Empire, which attacked the Eastern Roman Empire, and during the 6th Trumpet of Revelation, knocked down the thick protective walls of Constantinople using large cannons.

Agreed that the Vatican created Islam. Here is my Islam In Bible Prophecy series. http://christianitybeliefs.org/end-times-deceptions/islam-in-bible-prophecy/

I’m not sure what your point is about the 1,260 days is.

In Daniel’s prophecy we find a very unusual phrase. “they shall be mixed with the seed of men.”
Dan 2:43 And as you saw the iron mixed with the clay of the clay, they shall be mixed with the seed of men. But they shall not adhere to one another, even as iron does not mix with clay.
The seed of men. What an interesting context. It is not talking about the seed of the woman or the seed of Abraham, or the seed of the marytrs, or the seed of God, but the seed or fruit – posterity, of men.
The iron tries to mingle with the seed of men.
Has anyone noticed in the past few decades there has been a growing focus on aliens (demons in fact) cohabiting with women to put it simply and bluntly?
And has anyone noticed this is often a theme in movies etc, where lines are blurred, and the “evolution process” keeps advancing and men can become gods?
Has anyone noticed how the latest vatican head has made open comments about aliens and that the ‘Church’ will baptize them if they find them.
Does anyone remember the rock group Iron Maiden, and in this very label is hidden this idea of ‘Iron’ mixinig with clay – fruit of men – ‘maidens’ of the earth
It was the case in Noah’s day and it is about to take place again. It is the pits. And evil must come to its full ripe – rotten maturity.
They shall be mixed with the seed of men. THEY! Who are ‘they’? They is teh Iron. God is identifying ‘the Iron’ in Neb’s dream, as ‘they’. Iron is black, or dark (sinister). Iron is unyeilding in nature, so are the demonic realms. Iron cannot be thoroughly mixed with clay and be blended in though it may have it will be short lived for it has not lasting in common.
This mixing of demon with human is the end result of the theory of evolution; it is the plain hidden meaning behind the mystery religions and their esoteric symbols like: Yin and Yan – dark and light; (black and white)- Free masonry, and is even found in the MESSage Bible in the Lord’s prayer – AS ABOVE – SO BELOW (that is an occult phrase); and in countless other places.
I believe ‘Iron’ is not just a refernce to physical Rome, or even to the Roman Catholic Church per se., but a reference to the spiritual forces behind ‘Rome’ and every other den of iniquity, spiritual wickedness in high places. Who are working with wicked men to bring this about through the NWO.
Now is the time to repent of every evil thing, every shady thing and flee, not like Lot’s wife, to the rock Christ Jesus and hide in Him completely until the fury of God’s wrath against sin is passed (Isaiah 26:20).

I must say how great the truth is being revealed in this discussion. I also commend those that can repartee about a persons’ different views, teachings, and interpretations, without letting their EGO’s get in the way. In reading and learning different perspectives has opened my eye’s. Being disabled in the prime of my life and career, I was diagnosed with a rare neurological disease. I was raised in the context and principles, that Dave did on the “end times-deceptions.” What sparks debate at home my wife was a devout catholic. I myself is a “Christian.” While we each supported two different religions. We were practically in Church ‘all day’ She began to see the differences and is now attending a really great non-denominational church. I quote her “It just frustrates me that all I hear is ‘money, money, monenaaaa” from the Priest. Also, considering we gave the church $150k grant to build a new church after the city population nearly doubled in 5 yrs. I keep praying for her that “Our Heavenly Father” truly reveal himself to her. Ironically, as I had tried to learn and understand Catholicism, I would ask her why do you …….? She replied, “It was how I was brought up. I cannot explain, “why…..its complicated”” From an outsider looking-in; they went through the exact same rituals every Sunday and say the same things week to week. You can tell it was like mind control every one talks about now. Just this evening I tried to share some of the words/interpretations here about Dave’s work. She glance over it, and said, ‘that is not what I was taught. Where did this information come from? “I told her it came from the Cyber-Pastor Dave, :). her final comment was, “people can find anything to make it support their view.” We both have a strong scientific background. I am (was) a neurosurgeon, and she is a trauma pediatric surgeon.

Finally, after all of this, have others here have the same situation? How did you handle such a delicate subject. I believe in full body immersion under water as being baptized as, Jesus taught. Catholics, as many know, are sprinkled with water on the top of your head around 1-2 months after birth. This doesn’t relate to God’s, “Age of Accountability.” Sorry I used used this platform, but I wanted to share some of my experience. “Pope Francis has ~1.5 billion followers that a lot of flock being deceived. May the Lord be with you on your journeys today.

First of all I want to say that I have been scratching my head over Bible prophecies since I was 15 when I came across a small book called Mystery 666. But never in my life did everything become so clearer until I came across John Gill’s writing and this website. Gill was so led by the Holy Spirit that he knew which prophecies were fulfilled till his day and which were yet after his time. And it must be God’d doing that for those parts of Revelation that were fulfilled after Gill’s time, I studied them through this website. I’ve read adventist teachings and they do uphold the historic reformed eschatology but the Gill-christianitybeliefs.org combo Bible study has really provided me with great faith and peace.

But I may disagree on the sabbath issue. Now I do know that the seventh day which we call by the pagan name Saturday was and is the Biblical Sabbath or rather, more specifically, Friday evening to Saturday evening. I also do know that the first day which we call by the pagan name Sunday is not the Biblical Sabbath and whether or not impotant events occured on this day, Scripture never say it is hallowed above other days of the week. But what I am saying is that none of this matters. It matters not that the Sabbath is Friday evening to Saturday evening and it matters not that Sunday is not a holy day. I believe we find our rest in Christ and it is in Him that we are sanctified. Paul says to one all days are the same, to another, one day is more esteemed than others, let him be fully convinced in his own mind. Some people classify the Law into the moral and ceremonial. I think that’s fair but which laws are ceremonial and which are moral, the Bible doesn’t really define. And just because the Sabbath commandment lies among a group of ten commandments, the other nine of which are moral laws, doesn’t necessarily mean it is a moral law. Paul said so in Collosians 2:16-17 that holy days, new moons and the Sabbath are shadows but the truth is found in Christ.
Let me provide a small exegetical treatment of this:
In Genesis God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it. No commandment was given to rest because man had not sinned and was not yet labouring nor was he heavy laden, either spiritually or physically. It simply says that God sanctified it. Then in Exodus 31:13 and 31:17 we see that God gave Israel the commandment to keep the Sabbath because it was a sign that He is Yahweh who sanctifies them. Verse 17 takes our minds back to Genesis when He sanctified the seventh day and rested from His work of creation. So we must see two parallels here, that Yahweh is the one who sanctified the seventh day and He is also the one who sanctified nation of Israel. The seventh day is no different than other days in that the sun rises the same, the birds don’t sing any sweeter, nor is the sky any bluer and neither were the Israelites any better than the other nations on earth. But God sanctifies by His sovereign will.
Now we come to Matthew 12:8 where Christ says that He is Lord of the Sabbath. What does all this mean? It means that the Sabbath was a shadow, indeed as Exodus 31:13 says, a sign that it is God who sanctifies. He sanctified the Sabbath, He sanctified Israel and in Christ, we are saved – justified, sanctified and glorified. The Sabbath law was a ceremonial law as it points to Christ as the only one in whom is our sanctification.
It’s interesting that before the Sabbath conflict in Matthew 12, Christ proclaimed in 11:28, “Come unto me all yee that labour, and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (I will give you sabbath).

Hello David, I recently found your website. It appears to be full of much needed knowledge for myself an yes others. I am not so knowledgeable as yourself, or even some of your commenters. However I do believe unto the The Lord Jesus Christ, the true living God, for my salvation. I have not been to church for a long time, yet I feel he has been with me my whole life. A child I am really, in spirit . I should have grown by now, yet, I can only blame myself.
You seem so knowledgeable, I was hoping , perhaps you could help me with a few questions I have, regarding dreams I have had, on a personal level. As I cannot find the answers for myself. I think I have come close, perhaps you can help me with this.
If not I can appreciate this, after all I am a stranger. Yet I do write this from my heart, with true sincerity. One thing I should say is Daisy is a alias, name.

Daniel 7 4th beast and Revelation 13 beast actually islam not rome.

1. Only islam ever controlled babylon, persia, greece territory (rev 13:2), rome never reached persian
2. islam attack holy people – jew and christian
3. islam created its own law – shariah law
4. islam created its own time – hijriah calendar
5. islam insult god – claim Jesus only a man
6 islam holy place – built mosque in salomon temple
7. islam still exist now but rome not, beast only wounded not dead

10 horns represent 10 early islamic leaders small horn subdue 3 horns represent internal conflict (the beast wounded but healed). after mohamed his 4 successor are abu bakr, umar (both father in law), utman and ali (both are son in law) all 4 are close relative. problem arised after utman replace by ali, muawiyah whose blood related to utman but not to ali refuse and start rebellion. after major defeat ( 660 AD) ali appointed his son hassan as 5th caliph but muawiyah (founder of umayah caliphate) came with massive troops and demand title for himself. hassan and his brother husein (second imam of shiah) surrender and suffer public humilation by muawiyah later husein killed in karbala by umayah forces this marked conflict between sunni and shiah. small horn is muawiyah and 3 subdue horns are ali, hassan and husein. under umayah caliphate islam spread its territory from spain to persia and build mosque in jerusalem.

First beast represent established islam before dead of mohamed which controlled many troops while second beast represent islamic jihad/spirit of islam while they still in small number. 2 horns represent first 2 caliphate thats rashidun and umayah caliphate. it is known that islam alway claims to be believed in prophet isa/jesus (look like a lamb) but at same time follow mohamad and pagan deity allah whos deny jesus divinity (speak like dragon).

under rashidun and umayah caliphate islam expand its territory (rev 13:12) with war/sword (rev 13:10) they commit forced religious convertion with death penalty or paying high taxes (jizyah) so non converter will become very poor (unable to buy/sell – rev 13:16). those who embrace islam will receive marked in head (belief the idea of pagan deity) and work in way of islam (hand mark). the mark of the beast 666 which greece numerical known as tri score number is allah name, a converter/mualaf must said syahadat word which meantion name of beast/allah (rev 13:17) . name allah is a name for male deity for female is al lat just like christiano for male and christiana for female. when islam defeating christian byzantium they use cannon which created explotion just like fire come down from heaven (rev 13:13). small horn muawiyah taken control majority islamic territory 660 AD and established new secular caliphate system that applied until fall ottoman caliphate at the end of WW1-officially WW1 end when league of nation held its first meeting 1920 ( 1260 years )

The Augustinians of the Catholic Church helped write the Qur’an and prop up the illiterate Mohammed as their prophet. They wrote it in such a way as to cause Muslims to kill Jews and the saints. And they wrote it to make it seem like the fulfillment of the antichrist, to deflect blame away from them.

As a lay Catholic, who is expected to show courtesy,and respect, to people’s of all faith’s and denominations, I have always found that the Christians I meet are the last to return the charity, we are ALL obligated under God to show each other respect particularly pertaining to our different faith’s,this reading has proven very disheartening. I have made only two, truly loving unique and extraordinarily wonderful christian people, whom I now have the honour of calling my closest friends, they are not catholic, however through much conversation and exchange of information about faith’s on all sides we found that there were many unfounded false prejudices, many of the prejudices have this same appalling undertones concerning the catholic faith, but I have never read or indeed heard until today such unholy slander, all you so called Christians should hang your heads in shame, you are all hypocrites, establishing trust and gaining credit through direct misinterpretation, and claiming that the one true church is evil!! This the church founded on St Peter the rock, by Christ Jesus HIMSELF is evil!! Is the most heinous profane thing I have ever had the misfortune to read in my life. May Our Lady of Perpetual Succour forgive you for having so offended her and the Sacred heart. When Jesus Christ comes to judge US all he alone will judge his people who represent him within his church, they will answer to his judgement and true authority, you have no authority to pass any form of low opinion let alone this false information on the Catholic Church, established by the king of kings over 2000 years ago,what you have put on line to destroy the character of my church, do you not think that as a Catholic, knowing the sins committed by a very small percentage of members of the church, that we are not in a better position to be passing judgement then all of you put together!!! WE DO NOT JUDGE THAT RIGHT BELONGS TO CHRIST JESUS ALONE

Do not attempt to interpret that which you have no right or authority.
Judge not and you will not be judged.

David October 29, 2015 at 8:46 am

Caitrin, this Bible study is not a judgment of Catholics, it’s an explanation of Bible prophecy fulfillment, which sadly points to the Popes of Rome.

Look at what you said to see what is wrong with what the Popes and priests of Rome have taught you, “May Our Lady of Perpetual Succour forgive you for having so offended her and the Sacred heart.”

Mary was the esteemed mother of our Messiah, but she does not have the capacity to forgive sins, only Messiah can do that.

“My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” 1 John 2:1

Mary is not our Intercessor. That role belongs to Messiah alone.

“For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all.” 1 Timothy 2:5-6

Here is a Roman Catholic Beliefs Bible study that clearly shows that what the Popes of Rome teach is contrary to the Holy Scriptures. You will stand before God some day, not the Pope. Please take the time to understand the truth. I will pray for you. David

David,
If I understood right, the conclusion that the 70th week of Daniel finished with Steven being stoned is reached by inference and not by written evidence, am I right?
I mean, since Messiah started to preach and preached for 3 1/2 years, the remaining 3 1/2 years should be the completion of that period….

Just trying to check what is fact and what is inference.

Thank you,
Ricardo

David November 13, 2015 at 1:49 pm

Ricardo, Acts doesn’t give us a timeline to mark the stoning of Stephen at 3 1/2 years, but when you understand that the ‘covenant’ was not a seven year covenant, but the New Covenant that was confirmed with the Jews first for seven years, then you can understand when the 70th week of Daniel ended. Immediately after the stoning of Stephen, Acts records a dramatic shift in who the New Covenant was offered to, the Gentiles. It was still offered to the Jews, but now the disciples scattered and shared the Gospel throughout the Roman Empire, and Paul became the Apostle to the Gentiles. Here is a link to the study that covers this in more detail. http://christianitybeliefs.org/end-times-deceptions/confirming-daniel-9-covenant-with-many-for-seven-years/

Hi David, I’ve been doing much study on the popal church and the jesuits and have realized that they have infiltrated the whole world and people have been blinded by the enemy so that they don’t see it. I came across testimonies of former jesuit priests such as Alberto Rivera, who all validate your account of the vatican and the popal system. You mentioned in one of your articles that the jesuit control most central banks, well guess what? the new central bank governor in Kenya is a member of the opus dei, which I understand is one of the organizations of the jesuits. Its all coming together David. if you follow the vatican news then you know that the Pope is coming to Africa and he begins his tour in Kenya. Now some people may dismiss this as a non-issue, but this will be the second pope to visit Kenya after pope John Paul II, who visited Kenya three times. You may be wondering why am giving you all this details but I find it rather interesting that pope John Paul II’s second visit was in 1985, the year when the jesuit built a church in a slum area near the city and called it st. Joseph the worker, well guess what, pope Francis will only visit one church in Kenya- st. Joseph the worker. This cannot be a coincidence since he is a jesuit. He will also meet leaders of all major religions together, now that tells me something is up. I pray that our Lord and savior Jesus Christ will open the eyes of many, that they may come out of this system. Once again I thank you for your ministry and pray that Jehovah will bless and keep you.

Hello Kiiru 🙂 The Jesuits reign over the world covertly, so you have to research to see how they work through many front organizations. But witnesses such as Alberto Rivera, who was killed for his testimony, help give us insight. At this point in the game, almost every leader of countries is either a Jesuit or is trained and controlled by them. Yes, we must pray that the eyes of the Catholics, and even the Protestants who are misled by their deceptions, will be opened. Grace, peace and love to you in Yahuah’s name!

Very well thought out article. Unfortunately however, it is hermeneutically unsound. Your exegesis is very flawed to say the least. If you would be honest with yourself and study with an emphasis unbiased approach and also give literal meaning to the text where literal is demanded then maybe it would be more beneficial to you. A good example is your wrong usage of the Greek word for restrainer. Your Greek must not be very good brother. You are employing what is called spiritualization of the text. You are using Isegesis rather than exegesis. Meaning you are putting into the text rather than pull out of the text. I teach my students this common flaw in interpreting the text everyday. You would do well to study hermeneutics my friend. You need to let the text interpret the text. This is called synthesis.

Reply

David December 23, 2015 at 10:05 am

Tony, I appreciate your input, but I have all plenty of proof that the Roman Emperors were the restrainer that Paul was referring to in 2 Thessalonians 2.

History proves the fulfillment of prophecy.

Daniel, Paul and John all described the same thing, the antichrist Popes of Rome rising to power after the Roman Empire collapsed.

Notice the commonality of the prophecies, that the Popes would rise to power, that they would speak against God, and that they would reign for 1,260 years.

After the internal collapse from civil war, famine and pestilence; and after the Roman Empire was attacked by many armies; the last Western Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D.

The Little Horn of Daniel describes the Popes, who rose to power after the collapse of the Roman Empire.

Daniel 7:8 “I considered the (10) horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.”

The 10 horns of the 4th beast of Daniel 7 foretold that the Roman Empire would split into 10 civil kingdoms, and that a Little Horn, the Popes of Rome, would rise up among them, and pluck out three of the kingdoms that did not bow down to his authority. They subdued and destroyed three of the ten kingdoms, the Heruli, the Ostrogoths and the Vandals.

Daniel 7:25 “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”

Daniel foretold that the Little Horn, the Popes of Rome would speak against Elohim, and reign for 1,260 years.

The ‘restrainer’ of 2 Thessalonians 2 described the Roman Emperors who restrained the Popes from taking power.

“Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” Verse 4

The Roman Emperor was the restrainer, because as long as he was in authority, the Popes could not take power.

Shortly after the last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D., the Son of Perdition, the Popes of Rome, rose to power in 538 A.D. They sit among the followers of Messiah, which is the temple of God, and they proclaimed to be God.

The sea beast of Revelation 13 rose up out of the people groups, out of the 10 civil kingdoms, that were created when the Roman Empire collapsed.

“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.” Verse 5

The Popes were given civil and ecclesiastic power as a church/state, and they took the Emperor’s title of Pontifex Maximus, and the ‘deadly head wound‘ was healed.

John is telling us the same thing as Daniel, that the Popes of Rome would reign for 1,260 years, and speaking blasphemies, proclaiming to be God and to forgive sins.

Revelation 17 tells us that five forms of Roman government, referred to as kings, had passed when John wrote Revelation.

“So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” Verse 3

Here is the same beast as Daniel 7 and Revelation 13 described, with 10 horns.

“And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.” Verses 10-11

The seven kings represent the seven forms of government that existed in the Roman Empire, and the 8th represents the Popes of Rome who took power.

Five had passed. One was at the time, the Emperors of Rome. And one existed during the ‘short space’ between 476, when the last Roman Emperor was removed, and 538, when the Popes of Rome took power.

The antichrist is not just one man, it is a position, like the President of the United States. It has been fulfilled by many Popes.

Messiah said that many would come in my name, and the many Popes proclaim to be the “Vicar of Christ” or the “substitute Christ.”

The Popes reigned during 1,260 years of civil and ecclesiastic power, from 538-1798 A.D., until the Jesuits caused Napoleon’s army to take the Pope captive, removing his civil power.

The Jesuit Generals, the black popes, are the earth beast of Revelation 13, who control the Vatican and the White Pope.

my friend david, angel said 10 horns are 10 kings not 10 kingdoms (dan 7:24, rev 17:12)

daniel 7 mention about 4 kingdoms+ 10 kings not 14 kingdoms. hebrew word mal-kin means king.

revelation 17:12: 10 kings/basileis…not received a kingdom/basilean

10 horns purpose to give power and authority to the beast they are mohamed and his companion doing jihad not 10 tribes of west rome. in fact if you read history heruli and vandals are attacking/sacking rome not supporting it.

heruli destroyed in tribe war against lombard while vandal and ostrogoth destroyed by east rome not pope. this has been debated on another website and roman fans are crumble

revelation 13 beasts are allah/islam.

David December 23, 2015 at 10:07 am

The restrainer had to be removed before the Son of Perdition could rise to power. The Popes of Rome were given civil and ecclesiatical authority in 538 A.D. This lines up perfectly with the last Roman Emperor being removed in 476 A.D.

Keep in mind that when the Apostle Paul wrote 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, the Jewish temple was still standing, as it wasn’t destroyed by the Romans until 70 A.D., so any reference to a physical temple would have been to that temple, not an end times temple.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”

So what does Paul mean?

To understand that, let’s look at how Jesus defined the word “temple.”

In John 2:14, Jesus spoke of the physical temple. The Greek word for the physical temple is hieron.

“And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers doing business.”

Then just five verses later in John 2:19-20, Jesus spoke of the spiritual temple. The Greek word for the spiritual temple is naos.

“Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” But He was speaking of the temple of His body.”

Whenever Paul used the word naos, he applied it to followers of Jesus, the Christian Church, which is a literal temple, but not a physical building.

1 Corinthians 3:16-17 “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.”

1 Corinthians 6:19 “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?”

2 Corinthians 6:16 “And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”

Ephesians 2:19-22 “Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone, in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”

The spiritual temple is made up of followers of Jesus, Christians.

In 2 Thessalonians 2:2-4, where Paul is telling us about the Son of Perdition, he again uses the Greek word naos.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple (naos) of God, showing himself that he is God.”

Paul is saying that the Son of Perdition would sit in the temple of God, that is, in the Christian church.

Paul is telling us that he would pretend to be Christian in order to deceive the world, which lines up directly with the Roman Catholic Church and the Pope who pretend to be Christian.

Instead of being an infidel who doesn’t believe in God, like so many pastors teach, the Antichrist does not reign outside of the Church, but in the very bosom of the Church.

Pope Innocent III declared “We may according to the fullness of our power, dispose of the law and dispense above the law. Those whom the Pope of Rome doth separate, it is not a man that separates them but God. For the Pope holdeth place on earth, not simply of a man but of the true God.”

Pope Pius V blasphemed that “The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth.”

Pope John Paul II said “Don’t go to God for forgiveness of sins: come to me.”

Current Pope Francis I said “You cannot find Jesus outside the Church.”

Paul places the Son of Perdition nowhere else than in the very sanctuary of God.

The Pope sits (assumes a position of authority) as God in the temple of God.

The Pope is called the ‘Vicar of Christ’ which means ‘substitute for Christ.’

He proclaims to forgive sins.

He proclaims that salvation is only available through the Roman Catholic Church.

He preaches a message of ‘salvation by works’, instead of through the blood of Jesus.

The Pope of the Antichrist Roman Catholic Church misleads 1.2 Billion Catholics into believing that salvation is through them, not Jesus Christ.

And the Jesuits of the Roman Catholic Church are pushing the world into a New World Order, where they will cause everyone in the world to worship them or die.

Tony, you would do well to read the testimonies of the saints who proclaimed that the Popes of Rome are the Son of Perdition, many of them paying for their testimony with their life. Since the Popes of Rome are the Son of Perdition, the restrainer had to be removed prior to them taking power. Again, the Popes took power in 538 A.D., so the restrainer had to be removed before then. http://christianitybeliefs.org/end-times-deceptions/historic-witnesses-against-the-antichrist-roman-beast-the-popes-of-rome/

Again your usage of the text is extremely flawed. Have you ever heard of authorial intent? If you were my student and you gave me a paper like you just wrote to me I would fail you in a heartbeat. Your usage of the text is extremely flawed as I said. First of all the text in Thessalonians is talking about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Just a very brief look throughout 2000 years of historical Christianity all the theologians and commentaries refer to the restrainer as the Holy Spirit. In this text, the Holy Spirit, or restrainer is referred to both in the neuter (what) and the masculine (he). It is a mix of gender in relation to the Holy Spirit in the use of the neuter for gender of the Greek word pneuma which refers to the Holy Spirit. The Greek usage of katechon is then to be rendered ” he who restrains.” There is nothing, absolutely, in this text, that would be anything other than the Holy Spirit. I don’t see where you’re coming from the text does not teach that so therefore you are committing isegesis. You are reading into the text what is not there. Who is the only one who can restrain? The text would suggest something more than just a person to restrain but what is a restrainin. only God can restrain governments and powers. Satan has not been given that authority and neither has any Roman government. That’s ludicrous. Again, you are adding to the text. This has nothing to do with what you have described. It has everything to do with the coming of the Lord Jesus then removing the restrainer, then the coming of the lawless one. God is the only one who restrains Satan. not you or I or any world government. Because that text teaches that he is the Prince of the power of the air. A position that God gave him. I see now why you so desperately want to add to the text and make that sound like the Pope of Rome. Because if you don’t have that in this text then your whole philosophy and theory, which it is theory, falls apart. You need to learn how to read Greek brother. Your usage of the greek in relation to the word temple Was very good. But again your bias has caused you to put into the text what is not there. The temple is the same throughout all of Scripture when it speaking of the literal temple in Jerusalem. And the temple of the Holy Spirit which is our body. In the New Covenant. There was no Holy Roman Empire with relation to the church or the Catholic Church when the text was written. Again your usage of the text is horrible. But I can see in your bias how you want desperately to make that be something its not. Your warning earlier about pastors teaching something about the scriptures that is different from what you believe is correct. But you need to place that warning on yourself because you were doing what revelation forbids and that is adding to the text. You better be extremely careful because thousands of people look at post just like yours and you will be held accountable. And you are dead wrong. Oh and by the way I am a Christian, evangelical. & a teacher of the Scriptures. An actual real teacher. I would encourage you to spend more time studying the ancient Greek and Hebrew a little bit better and studying hermeneutics as I said once again

I teach what the great theologians of history taught. These are not just my interpretations, but they come from esteemed people who wrote whole Bible commentaries, such as John Gill, Albert Barnes, Adam Clarke, Matthew Poole, etc.

So to help me understand where you’re coming from in your interpretation of prophecy, has the 70th week of Daniel been fulfilled yet?

Have any of the seals, trumpets and bowls, of Revelation been fulfilled? If so, which ones?

Okay I see what’s happening here. You’re using what most people do when they can’t answer questions is a tactic of dodging the question. You’re not going to find any commentary that has anything definitive about post or mid trib post millennial premillennial or any of that. They will give opinions but there none definitive. I’m just saying that your usage of the Greek is horrible. Where did you go to school? I think your article has some great information in it. I just think your idea through the Antichrist is it’s ridiculous. Maybe the false prophet? I don’t mean to be rude, but I would just like you to address my post. If you look at the text in thess. you will see and in other places, that the Apostle Paul thought that the return of Christ was imminent himself in his lifetime. How do you explain that? Was the Apostle Paul mistaken, did he think that the Pope was Antichrist? There was no Pope, and the church was very young. Thesslonians was one of the first letters written in the New Testament. So was the Apostle Paul mistaken?. Why don’t you address my post.

I’m not dodging anything. I’ve provided verse by verse explanations on this website, and quotes from saints who testified against the Popes of Rome, the Son of Perdition.

But that narrative fits into the 1,260 year reign of the sea beast of Revelation 13, the Popes of Rome. That narrative fits into the fulfillment of the seals, trumpets and bowls of Revelation. So that is why I asked you what your perspective is.

And if you believe in a future 70th week of Daniel, then that helps me understand where you’re coming from in regard to your explanations.

So that is why I asked the questions, to get a bigger picture of your perspective.

I went to your website and you don’t even understand the fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel. If you were my student, I would fail you.

Daniel 9:25-26 mention the arrival of the promised Messiah, and then verse 27 mentions a covenant. A 5th grader can put 2 + 2 together to understand that it is Messiah’s covenant, not a peace agreement of an end-times antichrist, which is totally out of context with Daniel 9, as it is about what would happen to the Jews when they are released from Babylon, not the end times.

A 5th grader understands that the 70th week comes after the 69th week.

A 5th grader understands that if a 70 week prophecy is not completely fulfilled in 70 weeks, then it is not valid.

I have many studies that show the historical fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel.

I do not think you can be absolutely definitive, as you have been definitive, about who the Antichrist will be. There are some arguments even more convincing out there that say the Antichrist will be the 12th Imam from Islam. In actuality that fits better than the one of the rome of Seven Hills argument. I just think you cannot be as definitive as you are and speak in absolutes like that about prophetic things that have not happened yet.

Daniel, Paul and John, all point to the Popes of Rome. ‘Antichrist‘ is a Greek word. ‘Vicar‘ is an English word. The words are synonymous.
They have exactly the same meaning.

‘Antichrist‘ translated into the English is ‘Vice Christ‘ or ‘Vicar of Christ.’

‘Vicar of Christ, rendered into the Greek is ‘Antichristos‘ = ‘Antichrist.’

The ordinary use of the word in the Greek is decisive on this point.

The Popes of Rome rose to power after the last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D., fulfilling 2 Thessalonians 2:7

St Gelasius I, who was the Pope from 492 – 496, was the first Pope to be called the “Vicar of Christ“.

And since then each Pope has been declared the Vicar of Christ, as they have proclaimed to be Christ in the flesh.

Pope Boniface VIII said “We declare, assert, define and pronounce to be subject to the Roman Pontiff is to every creature altogether necessary for salvation… I have the authority of the King of Kings. I am all in all, and above all, so that God Himself and I, the Vicar of Christ, have but one consistory, and I am able to do almost all that God can do. What therefore, can you make of me but God?” Pope Boniface VIII, Papal bull Unam sanctam, 1302 A.D.

Pope Pius IX said, “I alone… am the successor of the apostles, the vicar of Jesus Christ. I am the way, the truth, and the life…” Pope Pius IX , History of the Christian Church, by Henry Charles Sheldon, p. 59.

Pope Pius X declared, “The Pope is not simply the representative of Jesus Christ. On the contrary, he is Jesus Christ Himself, under the veil of the flesh. Does the Pope speak? It is Jesus Christ who is speaking, hence, when anyone speaks of the Pope, it is not necessary to examine but to obey.” Pope Pius X, Evangelical Christendom, Vol. 49, Jan 1. 1895 A.D., p. 15, “the organ of the Evangelical Alliance,” published in London by J. S. Phillips.

Pope Pius XII said, “…recognize the Holy, Catholic, Roman Church to be the only true Church of Jesus Christ, outside of which neither sanctity nor salvation can be found. Call them to the unity of the one fold, granting them the grace to believe every truth of our holy faith and to submit themselves to the Supreme Roman Pontiff, the Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth.” Pope Pius XII, The Raccolta, Benzinger Brothers, Boston, 1957 A.D., No. 626.
(5)

The position of Antichrist is not just one man, it is a position, like the President of the United States or the King of England.

The Vicar of Christ, the Vice-Christ, the Antichrist, the Popes of Rome, presents himself in the stead of the true Christ and must therefore be characterized by deception, dissimulation and counterfeit.

The early Church fathers taught that the “restraint” mentioned here was to be none other than the Roman Empire. With the removal of Imperial Rome, and its revival under the Papacy, the succession of those who would fit the qualifications of “Antichrist” took their seat, each one displaying an arrogant assumption of Divine authority.

Jerome, 400 A.D., declared “If St. Paul had written openly and boldly that the man of sin would not come until the Roman Empire was destroyed, a just cause of persecution would then appear to have been afforded against the Church in her infancy.”

The 4th Trumpet represents the final overthrow of Rome by Odoacer and the Heruli in 476 A.D. The Sun, Moon and Stars symbolizes leadership structure. Here it represents God using Odoacer and the Heruli, a branch of the Goths, to cause the downfall of Roman leadership when Romulus Augustalus, the last Roman Emperor (the Sun) of the West was captured in 476 A.D. The hierarchy of Roman leaders (moon and stars) would have lost their power too.

Then the Roman Catholic Popes fulfilled the Daniel 7:20 prophecy about the Little Horn of Daniel.
When the Roman Emperors were removed, the Roman Empire split into 10 civil kingdoms, the 10 horns. Then the Little Horn of Daniel, the Popes, rose up and caused three of the kingdoms (the Heruli, Vandals and Ostrogoths), to be plucked out because they would not bow down to their authority. So the Little Horn of Daniel does not apply to the end times.

The Roman Emperor was the restrainer of 2 Thessalonians 2, which when removed, allowed the Popes to take power.
Paul is telling us that the Son of Perdition would be revealed when the Roman Emperors were removed. They had restrained the Popes from taking power, but with them removed, the Popes seized power. Paul could not write that it was the Roman Emperors who would be removed, as it would have invited even more persecution from the Romans.
So it is not the Holy Spirit restraining an end times one-man antichrist and being removed during the end times.

The Pope is the Son of Perdition who sits in the temple of God proclaiming to be God, fulfilling 2 Thes. 2:3-4
The Temple of God is not a physical building, it’s the literal body of Christ, His Church. (Eph. 2:19-22) The Popes pretend to be Christian, they sit as God in the midst of the temple of God (Christians), showing himself that he is God. Pope Leo XIII proclaimed “We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty.” Pope Pius V blasphemed, “The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth.” So the Son of Perdition is not an end-times one-man antichrist.

Daniel, Paul and John all described the Popes of Rome, who have made pompous, blasphemous statements.
• Daniel 7:8 – “And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.“
• 2 Thessalonians 2:4 – “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits
as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
•Revelation 13:5 – “And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to
continue for forty-two months.“

When the Roman Catholic Popes took the position of power in Rome, the deadly head wound was healed.
The Emperor was the high priest, called the Pontifex Maximus, of its pagan religion. Shortly after the Emperor was removed, the Roman Catholic Church gained religious and civil power when Eastern Emperor Justinian issued a decree making the Pope head of all churches. They took to title of Pontifex Maximus, as ruler of church and state, and the deadly head wound was healed. So it is not an end-times one-man antichrist who is killed and brought back to life.

Daniel and John describe the Roman Catholic Church persecuting the saints for 1,260 years, from 538-1798 A.D.
• Daniel 7:25 – “Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.”
• Revelation 13:7 – “It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.”

In 538, Roman Emperor Justinian issued a decree making the Pope head of all churches.
During the Dark Ages and the Inquisition, they banned and burned the Holy Scriptures, and taught only in Latin. Historians estimate that they killed over 50 million people they deemed as heretics, mostly the followers of Christ.

In 1798, Napoleon’s army marched into Rome and captured the Pope, ending their reign of power.
So it is not 1,260 days or 3 1/2 years of Great Tribulation in the end times.

Antichrist can mean against Christ and it can mean ‘in place of Christ’ or ‘substitute Christ.’ The Popes fulfill both.
‘Antichrist‘ is a Greek word. ‘Vicar‘ is an English word. The words are synonymous. They have exactly the same meaning. ‘Antichrist‘ translated into the English is ‘Vice Christ‘ or ‘Vicar of Christ.’ Rendered into the Greek is ‘Antichristos‘ = ‘Antichrist.’ The ordinary use of the word in the Greek is decisive on this point.

St Gelasius I, who was the Pope from 492 – 496, was the first Pope to be called the “Vicar of Christ“. And since then each Pope has been declared the Vicar of Christ. The position of Antichrist is not just one man, it is a position, like the President of the United States or the King of England. The office of the Papacy has fulfilled the position of antichrist, and of the Son of Perdition. Jesus said many will come in my name. So it does not just apply to one man in the end times.

No actually you were insulting. And offensive. I didn’t say anything insulting to you I made a state of the truth and its Paul who said to one of the churches have i now become your enemy because I told you the truth. Quite frankly and lovingly, the most loving thing you can do for a person is to tell them the truth. Otherwise is hatred or indifference. As to your answer to my school question, it was not intended to be insulting. Just a simple question to find out where you are coming from. And in all honesty your answer to me is just veiled egotism. Again in honesty I can be high minded and egotistical myself. That I admit. It just infuriates me sometimes when I just happened to surf the internet about Christian issues as your blog States and find quite frankly so much of is outside of the scripture to formulate opinion. Where is the sufficiency of Scripture in your interpretations. I think it is very important that people go to school and try to learn about the truth. I totally agree with you on some of your ideas about the seminary’s in this country. However the seminary I graduated from was not like that. and I have set under the feet of some of the finest most Godly theologians of our time. And like you I enjoy most of the same authors that you read. In fact I know some of them personally, and this idea that you espouse about the Jesuits infiltrating the seminaries is ludicrous. I know some of these men that teach theologyvthat you and I have both heard of, and that’s the furthest thing from the truth. When you go to the doctor to get an operation what would you do if he decided that day to take a vacation and allow someone from the street to perform the operation. And that person performing the operation said I’m not a doctor but I’m real good with my hands. Would you allow that person to operate on you if it was the life and death situation? You wouldn’t. Neither would I. The same thing goes for rightly handling God’s Word. You have your opinion but God’s Word trumps your opinion.

Are you suggesting that because I am a seminary graduate and beyond, that i am nfluenced by jesuits and I’m false in my teaching and what I understand of the Scriptures? That is preposterous. In fact you imply that going to seminary is a bad thing. That is equally preposterous. Is it because maybe you didn’t go? Are people with advanced degrees now suspect and influenced by Jesuits because they went to seminary? That’s totally ridiculous. But I don’t mean that to be insulting it’s just the fact.

You seem to be very knowledgeable about church history. And that’s good. But to talk down a person because he went to seminary is wrong.

There is no way you can be definitive about Antichrist. Paul the Apostle thought the return of Christ was imminent in his day. I won’t call you a 5th grader, but just be honest your usage of the Greek text is lacking in a major way. I would like to recommend you some good books that would help you learn Greek. But honestly I don’t think you would read them because you imply that you don’t need them. Was the Roman Catholic Church around in Paul’s day? Or was it around in the 1st or 2nd century? I think not. You had a good argument, but I’ve yet to see you use any verse in context. In fact I haven’t seen you use very many verses of Scripture at all. You might want to stick to the text and not read into it or add to it. That’s dangerous. There is no allegory in Scripture. Just so you know.

You talk a lot, but have proven nothing with Scripture. On the contrary, my website is full of verse by verse explanations of Daniel, 2 Thessalonians 2, and Revelation. When needed, the studies provide the Greek words that clarify the intent of the author.

I explain the fulfillment of the seals, trumpets and bowls of Revelation, verse by verse. http://christianitybeliefs.org/revelation-timeline-decoded/

I have 12 studies which prove how the 70th week of Daniel was fulfilled on time. http://christianitybeliefs.org/end-times-deceptions/daniel-70th-week-jesus-christ-vs-antichrist/
You proclaim on your website that it is yet future.

I simply stated that most Pastors are deceived by what they learn about prophecy at seminary and Bible schools. And I proved how the deception of futurism was created by the Jesuits as a deception. And it’s worked really well.

You’ve ignored all that I’ve posted, and just defended your beliefs. I pray that you will seek the truth about the 70th week of Daniel, for when it is proved, all of your explanations crumble like a house of cards.

Ok lets start over. Since you’re so fond of making insults with your implication, feel free to continue to insult because it shows your maturity. It appears that when opposition faces you, you can’t handle it. I understand that.

You have made your blog public. Therefore the burden of all the proof is on you. Not me or anyone else. So let me make it as simple as I possibly can so you can understand it. You see I can insult too. Very simply you use the word restrainer improperly in the text in Thessalonians. Please explain to me in the context of 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2 who exactly the restrainer is and without putting in the text what is not found there.

Another very simple question, who was Paul talking to in 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2 and tell me what you think the year this letter was written.

Without using any extra biblical sources, please explain to me who he’s talking about when he uses the word restrainer.

Can you please just answer these questions so we can start from there. I tried to make it as simple as I possibly can.

2 Thessalonians 2 describes the transition of power from Roman Emperors to Roman Popes. The Roman Emperors had restrained the Popes of Rome from taking power. But when the last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D., the Popes of Rome, the Son of Perdition, took power.

If the restrainer was the Holy Spirit, Paul would have just said that. He did not say it was the Roman Emperor, as that would have invited more persecution, so he reminded them of what he told them in person.

Jerome, a theologian and historian in the 4th century, in interpreting Paul’s Man of Sin, declares that he “is to sit in the temple, that is in the Church.” He adds, “It is only by assuming Christ’s name that the simpler ones of believers can be seduced to go to Antichrist; for thus they will go to Antichrist, while thinking to find Christ.”

In the 3rd century, Athanasius taught that the Antichrist of prophecy would prove to be a heretical ruler of the Roman Empire, making a Christian profession; and that Antichrist would come with the profession, “I am Christ,” assuming Christ’s place and character, like Satan transformed into an angel of light.

Cyril of Jerusalem, a distinguished theologian of the early Church, in the 4th century, says of Antichrist, “This man will usurp the government of the Roman Empire, and will falsely call himself the Christ.” “He will sit in the temple of God: not that which is in Jerusalem, but in the Churches everywhere.” Elliot, Horae, IV, p. 316

Even in the 4th century they were clearly describing the Popes of Rome, the antichrist, who proclaimed to be God.

Here is my study which explains verse by verse:
http://christianitybeliefs.org/revelation-timeline-decoded/the-son-of-perdition-of-2-thessalonians-2/

Roman Cardinal Manning, in his said: “From the abandonment of Rome (by Caesar) was the liberation of the Pontiffs.: “He was elevated to be, in his Divine Master’s Name King of Kings and Lord of Lords.” “The abandonment of Rome… left them free to become independent sovereigns, and to take up the sovereignty the Emperor had just laid down.” (“Temporal Power” by Cardinal Manning, Preface, p 42-46) )

Paul wrote 2 Thessalonians to the Early Church. He wrote it before the temple in Jerusalem was destroyed, so if he was referring to a physical temple in which the Son of Perdition would sit, it would have been that temple. But the Greek tells us that he was referring to the body of Christ, which is symbolic for the physical temple of Elohim. Messiah is the cornerstone. The Apostles are the foundation. And we are the little stones which make up the temple.

Your attacking comment didn’t get posted, because it is rude.

You had commented that irons sharpens iron, but all you have done is attack me.

I suspect that you don’t like my explanations because you’re a Roman Catholic.

You’ll find out the truth about prophecy fulfillment, maybe at your judgment before Messiah. I pray that you’ll seek the truth about the 70th week of Daniel, for in the 70th week our Messiah performed miracles, spoke the words that are recorded in the Gospels, died as the Passover Lamb to ratify the everlasting covenant, rose again, ascended to heaven, and sent His Spirit to teach us.

Ascribing the 70th week of Daniel to the antichrist is blasphemous, and a deception from the Jesuits of Rome, who are the enemy of Messiah and His followers.

Hi David,
I understand mostly all of this except for one thing. How is it that 476 AD is the turning point from pagan Rome to Religious Rome. There were so many Roman rulers, east and western kingdoms as well as the several sub level Ceasars. And how do we know who the first pope really is? Can you clarify this for me. Appreciate it. Thanks

Reply

David December 23, 2015 at 7:41 pm

Hi Dennis, great question. 476 A.D. is significant because it is when the last Western Roman Emperor was removed from power.

Daniel, Paul and John all described the same thing, the antichrist Popes of Rome rising to power after the Roman Empire collapsed.

Notice the commonality of the prophecies, that the Popes would rise to power, that they would speak against God, and that they would reign for 1,260 years.

After the internal collapse from civil war, famine and pestilence; and after the Roman Empire was attacked by many armies; the last Western Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D.

The Little Horn of Daniel describes the Popes, who rose to power after the collapse of the Roman Empire.

Daniel 7:8 “I considered the (10) horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.”

The 10 horns of the 4th beast of Daniel 7 foretold that the Roman Empire would split into 10 civil kingdoms, and that a Little Horn, the Popes of Rome, would rise up among them, and pluck out three of the kingdoms that did not bow down to his authority. They subdued and destroyed three of the ten kingdoms, the Heruli, the Ostrogoths and the Vandals.

Daniel 7:25 “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”

Daniel foretold that the Little Horn, the Popes of Rome would speak against Elohim, and reign for 1,260 years.

The ‘restrainer’ of 2 Thessalonians 2 described the Roman Emperors who restrained the Popes from taking power.

“Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” Verse 4

The Roman Emperor was the restrainer, because as long as he was in authority, the Popes could not take power.

Shortly after the last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D., the Son of Perdition, the Popes of Rome, rose to power in 538 A.D. They sit among the followers of Messiah, which is the temple of God, and they proclaimed to be God.

The sea beast of Revelation 13 rose up out of the people groups, out of the 10 civil kingdoms, that were created when the Roman Empire collapsed.

“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.” Verse 5

The Popes were given civil and ecclesiastic power as a church/state, and they took the Emperor’s title of Pontifex Maximus, and the ‘deadly head wound‘ was healed.

John is telling us the same thing as Daniel, that the Popes of Rome would reign for 1,260 years, and speaking blasphemies, proclaiming to be God and to forgive sins.

Revelation 17 tells us that five forms of Roman government, referred to as kings, had passed when John wrote Revelation.

“So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” Verse 3

Here is the same beast as Daniel 7 and Revelation 13 described, with 10 horns.

“And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.” Verses 10-11

The seven kings represent the seven forms of government that existed in the Roman Empire, and the 8th represents the Popes of Rome who took power.

Five had passed. One was at the time, the Emperors of Rome. And one existed during the ‘short space’ between 476, when the last Roman Emperor was removed, and 538, when the Popes of Rome took power.

The antichrist is not just one man, it is a position, like the President of the United States. It has been fulfilled by many Popes.

Messiah said that many would come in my name, and the many Popes proclaim to be the “Vicar of Christ” or the “substitute Christ.”

The Popes reigned during 1,260 years of civil and ecclesiastic power, from 538-1798 A.D., until the Jesuits caused Napoleon’s army to take the Pope captive, removing his civil power.

The Jesuit Generals, the black popes, are the earth beast of Revelation 13, who control the Vatican and the White Pope.

Great studies. Thank you. I’d like to respond to a comment regarding keeping the 4th Commandment perfectly. All Ten Commandments are important, yet *none* of them are kept perfectly by believers. Commandments 1-4 are most important (love the Lord God). The others (5-10) are for human relations. Practicing all the Commandments results in spiritual growth/mind renewal. Sabbath observance demonstrates obedience and a desire for sanctification, not perfection. It demonstrates love of the Most High and reverence for His holy (set-apart) day. Sabbath observance will not earn anyone salvation. However, it remains relevant to the Most High, and absolutely should not be ignored. I do not work on the Sabbath, but will certainly pick up a stick, feed my cat, make coffee/toast (etc). I turn off my phone and keep my actions and activities connected to my Master when awake. It’s a joy and delight…not a burden.

In Colossians 2:16-23King James Version (KJV), the Lord tells us to:

16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

Therefore, I must purpose in my heart to honor that word from the Lord. If someone wants to eat meat on Friday or believes he sould not eat meat on Fridays than so be it. If someone wants to follow the dietary rules in the Old Testament than so be it. If someone wants to worship on Saturdays, then so be it. According to these Scriptures they are free to do so and well within the Holy Spirit’s leadings to please the Lord. However, we become legalistic if we insist they choose to worship on Saturdays or eat according the to Old Testement laws. Right here we see they are free to choose specifically these things.

Nice article

Yashua (Jesus) told the Roman leader Heord, YOU will call me “King of the jews” GOD YHVW told Samuel they have not rejected you (Samual) but they have rejected me at the alpha Ya (strong or mighty leader. YHVW is the KING of all creation, Yashua the Messiah is the “prince of peace” as Joseph was to Pharoah equal in authority except for on the throne. Yashua will rule here on earth and with a iron rod, but it will be YHWH who sits as KING. According to strong the greek word for king could also be use as prince. Study to show yourself approved. Rightly dividing the word of truth.

This all come into play with the Roman Catholic Church and the church of England. They have rejected YHWH as leader and KING and have appointed them self as ruler over all who call on the Christ (crusified one) .

Great reading, I will have to read it a few times, and do a lot of research. I know a lot about the Jesuits and the pope. Also the protestant 501-3C tax free church. With the 55 things the protestant church has agreed with the government not to preach about. This was done by president Lyndon Johnson to silence the church. The protestant church is run by the state, you will not find the holy spirit there. If you could do a line by line study of Daniel and Revelation it would be very helpful. And if you could get a national radio or TV show going, to wake up the deceived saints that would be fantastic. I known the Jesuits own all the radio airways as well as the TV airways. Getting the word out is difficult. However, nothing is impossible with our God. Sincerely, John

Dear David

Great heated debate! Simply explain to Tony Griffin that there are 3 streams: Preterist, Historicist and Futurist as well as some additional minor hybrids. Yours and mine is Protestant Historicist a la Calvin, Luther, etc… Preterism is limited to AD 70 in total – what about the next 2000 years beyond AD 70? Futurism is an invention of Darby and Co (Bellarmine and other Jesuits before Darby). Scofield added further salt. 70 weeks are fullfilled and Sola Scriptura shows no tribulation week in it in Daniel per se. It is a foreign importation into the Daniel yext and thus ANTI Sola Scriptura. All should do a detailed study of the 3 streams. The most plausible historically and Scripturally if the Historicist. Preterists are serious students also but fall short as they confine all to AD 70. Futurists are bragging about something in the future post 2016. Any one with a bit of logic must understand that Church History post AD 100 is part of our faith and this is the hidden part that is silenced – excepot to us who researched for years diligently and reached certtain conclusions. None of our interpretations are infallible BUT the Historicist is very compelling! Who gave us the faith as we now have it? It was Paul, Augustine, Calvin and Luthers and others… This is the Monergist way and not the Synergist way. Tony is on the same side but he does not yet know it. We believe in the same Messiah but the faith is highly distorted by falsehoods. If one checks it out for himself and by himself, he will discover it. He must however start anew as if completely new in the faith. Forsake all and discover all and embrace truth!

Well said Georges! People have to ask themselves, what makes more sense?

That none of the Revelation prophecies would be fulfilled for 1,900+ years, and then all of them would be fulfilled during the final few years?

Or, that the Revelation prophecies would be fulfilled during the time from when they were written, until Messiah returns?

Doesn’t it make more sense that Revelation describes what the Church of Christ would face during all of the years until Messiah returns?

Let me put it another way. If the futuristic view of prophecy is true, then that means that our Messiah had nothing to say to His Church about the following events which occurred during the last 1,900 years:

Satan using the Roman Empire to kill 10 million saints, in his attempt to wipe out the Early Church.

The fall of the mighty Roman Empire from civil war, disease, famine and financial collapse.

Roman Emperor Constantine and the Roman Bishops creating a new pagan religion of Christianity, the Roman Catechism, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Army after army attacking the great Roman Empire to desolate it, causing the last Roman Emperor to be removed from power in 476 A.D.

The rise of the Popes of Rome to power in the 6th century, who went on to relentlessly burn the Holy Scriptures and kill the saints during the Dark Ages and the Inquisition, during which over 50 million saints were killed.

The Popes of Rome proclaiming blasphemous things, such as they are God, that they forgive sins, that they control the whole world, and condemning saints as heretics.

The translation of the Scriptures into English, German, and other languages, after it had been hidden for so long in Latin by the Papal Church. And the advent of the printing press, which caused Bibles to spread around the world.

Martin Luther, a Catholic Monk, being led to read the Bible to see that the Papal Church was a false Church, a Harlot Church. He responded by posting his 95 Thesis, which sparked the Protestant Reformation, causing millions of people to be saved by faith, come out of the Catholic Church and form the Protestant Churches.

The rise of the Jesuit Order, which the Roman Catholic Church empowered, to counter the Reformation, to bring the Protestants back under their power.

The Spanish Inquisition and wholesale slaughter of the saints in France, by order of the Pope of Rome.

The French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars, which killed many Catholics, in countries which had previously killed the saints.

The time of the Great Awakening when missionaries traveled around the world spreading the Good News.

The Futuristic view tells you that Messiah had nothing to say to His Church which endured all of those things.

The Futuristic view tells you that Messiah had nothing to say to the 10 million who died at the hands of the Roman Empire, and nothing to say to the 50 million plus who died at the hands of the Roman Catholic Church.

I promise you that our Messiah did in fact speak of all of those things in the book of Revelation, not by name of course, but the events and the people groups were all described in clear detail, and history proves the fulfillment.

David, I have learned so much (from Paul Sides). He has so much information after years of dedication. I was disappointed in your recent post. I pray you will open your heart to some of his studies. We don’t need to label everyone a false prophet without examining their intent and that Yahuah takes up to new levels of information when we are ready to be open and receiving and seeking Him.

Sheryl, my readers should not read his studies. For though he teaches truth about the names of the Father and the Son, and about the false Roman religion of Christianity; he is deceiving people about prophecy fulfillment and by teaching that Messiah was 100% human, that he was not deity, and that He sinned. That is a false messiah!

It’s really not my desire to write those kind of reviews, but I am compelled to do so. Lest anyone think that I have targeted Paul Sides as some agenda, I have reviews on a dozen other false teachers on this website.

The flock needs to be protected from people like him, who are leading them down the wrong path.

‘But if the watchman sees the sword coming and shall not blow the ram’s horn, and the people shall not be warned, and the sword comes and takes any being from among them, he is taken away in his crookedness, and his blood I require at the watchman’s hand.’ Ezekiel 33:6

Read this study to see how what he is proclaiming about Messiah is false. http://christianitybeliefs.org/end-times-deceptions/paul-sides-is-a-false-teacher/

And btw, Paul Sides lied about me posting 1-star reviews on all of his books on Amazon. Anyone can clearly read the reviews to see that almost all of them are 5-stars, and there are only two that have 1-star, and they are not from me.

I pray that you can see through his deceptive teachings to see the truth about our Messiah!

Dear David

I am certain you know this. I thought that Tony will find this interesting if he is open to opening his eyes wider than any denomination for most are disinformational.

Summarised Early Historical Development of Futurist Dispensationalism
First on the futurist trajectory was Jesuit theologian (i) Francisco Ribera (1537-1591) who wrote a futurist antichrist commentary as a counter Protestant Reformation tool to deflect attention away from the Papacy of Rome who was identified as the very antichrist by the Reformers during the Protestant Reformation.
Behind Francisco Ribera followed (ii) Cardinal Robert Bellarmine (1542-1621), one of the best known Jesuit apologists, who published a work between 1581 and 1593 entitled “Disputationum Roberti Bellarmini De controversiis Christian fidei adversus hujus temporis haereticos”, (Polemic Lectures Concerning the Disputed Points of the Christian Belief Against the Heretics of This Time), in which he also denied the day-year principle in prophecy and pushed the reign of the futurist antichrist into a distant future period of 3 1/2 literal years. He concluded that the 3 1/2 times, 42 months, and 1260 days of Daniel and Revelation were all intended to be a literal 3 1/2 years at the end time tribulation, and not 1260 years as understood by the Protestant Reformers to be the reign of the deemed Antichrist Papacy of Rome.
To add fuel to the fire of futurism, another Jesuit named (iii) Emanuel Lacunza (1731–1801) published his book entitled, “The Coming of the Messiah in Glory and Majesty” in 1816. Lacunza set forth the theory that Jesus was to have a future two stage coming; once pre-tribulationary for His saints and then later to gather His remaining post-tribulationary saints at His second coming.
Then in 1826, the Librarian to the Archbishop of Canterbury, (iv) Samuel Roffey Maitland (1792-1866) discovered Francisco Ribera and Emmanual Lacunza’s writings and published them. He too concluded that the 3 1/2 times, 42 months, and 1260 days of Daniel and Revelation were all intended to be a literal 3 1/2 years, not 1260 years.This theory of the postponement of the antichrist and the tribulation period into the future had already been taught for 250 years by the Jesuits.
Lacunza’s book came into the hands of (v) Edward Irving (1792–1834), a young and brilliant Scottish Presbyterian minister during the 1820’s who accepted the task of translating and publishing this devious theory from Spanish into English. This turned out to be a theory that would turn out to be one of the most detrimental misconceptions of Scripture in the 2,000 year history of the Christian Church. When Irving published his English version in London in 1827, he claimed to have “heard a voice” telling him to preach a secret rapture of the church with the two-stage theory of Christ’s future comings.
In 1830, (vi) Margaret MacDonald, a 15 years young Scottish lassie supposedly had a revelation by means of a ‘vision’ from God. In her ‘vision’ she saw Jesus coming in a secret rapture to remove the righteous saints from planet earth. At the time she was attending a church that was connected with the Brethren Movement of which Edward Irving was closely associated. Naturally, Irving seized upon this ‘vision’ as a witness to his teaching and began to spread this theory even more enthusiastically. In 1833 in the city of London, meetings were being conducted by some Irvingite followers.
Among those invited to the meetings was (vii) John Nelson Darby (1800–1882), a Church of Ireland clergyman, later with the Plymouth Brethren, who possessed a keen interest in prophecy and had exceptional writing skills. Darby attended the series of meetings on Bible Prophecy that began in 1830 at Powerscourt, Ireland. At these conferences he apparently learned about the secret rapture as revealed by vision to Margaret McDonald, and promoted by Edward Irving, and he soon visited Margaret MacDonald at her home in Port Glasgow to learn more from her.
Soon Darby became convinced of the Irvingite teaching of a secret rapture and other futuristic interpretations of prophecy originated long time before by the Jesuit scholars. He began to publish and distribute his new found secret rapture theory. He later visited America several times between 1859 and 1874, where his futurist theology was readily accepted.
In the late nineteenth century another Plymouth Brethren sect member, (viii) Sir Robert Anderson (1841-1918) wrote a book “The Coming Prince” in which he described the text contained in Daniel 9:27 as being one describing a coming “Roman Antichrist” orchestrating a peace treaty with the Jews for seven years, a segment of time proposed as some yet future “great tribulation period” that is to intervene between Edward Irving and John Nelson Darby’s split-off imminent secret rapture of the church, and Christ’s visible, public second coming. This added impetus to the spread of Dispensational Darbyism.
Darby eventually made five trips to the United States and convinced many new converts, among them being (ix) Cyrus Ingerson Scofield (1843-1921), a one-time law student turned ‘preacher’ who put it all in his Bible Reference Commentary and infected the rest of the churches downstream. He also ran Bible Correspondence Courses to disseminate his philosophical views. This new theory of prophetic interpretation was then introduced to the Bible conferences that were being conducted in the late 19th century in the USA. This became the springboard for advancing this futurist theory to the American evangelical church and from America it spread and infected the rest of the world downstream to become further popularised through the mass media and printing presses of money making publishers and radio as well as and TV broadcasters by Satellite. It has now assumed a feverish cultish outlook and promotes itself as the one and only Christian eschatology that exists and infallible at that.

Thank you for the great information Georges! One of the major links that I found connects Scofield to Dallas Theological Seminary, where the leaven of the Jesuits deceptions has spread around the world.

Lewis Sperry Chafer, an American theologian, became associated with the ministry of Scofield, who became his mentor.

When Scofield died in 1921, Chafer moved to Dallas, Texas, to pastor the First Congregational Church of Dallas, where Scofield had ministered.

Then in 1924 Chafer and his friend William Henry Griffith Thomas realized their vision of a simple, Bible‐teaching theological seminary, when they founded Dallas Theological Seminary (originally Evangelical Theological College).

DTS is known as a center of modern Dispensational teaching due to Dr. Chafer’s development of a Scofield-based systematic theology which approaches the Bible with a “premillennial, dispensational interpretation of the Scriptures.”

His eight-volume work describing this approach to theology, “Systematic Theology“, was first published in 1948 and is still a required textbook for some courses at DTS.

Chafer’s theology has been the subject of much study and debate in and out of the theological community since his death, especially on the two larger topics of dispensationalism and Christian Zionism, specifically that the Jews are a people called unto God with a separate historical purpose and plan from Christians.

Dallas Theological Seminary is the key place where the Jesuit concepts were taught to thousands of Pastors, including today’s top TV and radio personalities.

DTS graduates have taken positions at other seminaries, Bible schools, denominations and churches, so that the infection of the Jesuits end time concepts have been spread throughout the church.

As of Fall 2011, DTS has nearly 14,000 alumni serving in various ministerial capacities in 97 countries worldwide, and they’ve been trained according to the Jesuits end times Antichrist deceptions.

Here is the study which lists some of the top DTS graduates who teach these deceptions.

Dear David

Indeed! As we have said before none of our interpretations are are infallible. However some are put out without such Disclaimers and those without a clue about anything – as I once was – take it in as the sole truth!

Here is the Dallas Theological Seminary – Doctrinal Statement of Beliefs

Article XVIII—The Blessed Hope
We believe that, according to the Word of God, the next great event in the fulfillment of prophecy will be the coming of the Lord in the air to receive to Himself into heaven both His own who are alive and remain unto His coming, and also all who have fallen asleep in Jesus, and that this event is the blessed hope set before us in the Scripture, and for this we should be constantly looking (John 14:1–3; 1 Cor. 15:51–52; Phil. 3:20; 1 Thess. 4
Dan. 9:27; Rev. 6:1–19:21) during which the church, the body of Christ, will be in heaven. The whole period of Israel’s seventieth week will be a time of judgment on the whole earth, at the end of which the times of the Gentiles will be brought to a close. The latter half of this period will be the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jer. 30:7), which our Lord called the great tribulation (Matt. 24:15–21). We believe that universal righteousness will not be realized previous to the second coming of Christ, but that the world is day by day ripening for judgment and that the age will end with a fearful apostasy.
Article XIX—The Tribulation
We believe that the translation of the church will be followed by the fulfillment of Israel’s seventieth week (Dan. 9:27; Rev. 6:1–19:21) during which the church, the body of Christ, will be in heaven. The whole period of Israel’s seventieth week will be a time of judgment on the whole earth, at the end of which the times of the Gentiles will be brought to a close. The latter half of this period will be the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jer. 30:7), which our Lord called the great tribulation (Matt. 24:15–21). We believe that universal righteousness will not be realized previous to the second coming of Christ, but that the world is day by day ripening for judgment and that the age will end with a fearful apostasy.
Article XX—The Second Coming of Christ
We believe that the period of great tribulation in the earth will be climaxed by the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth as He went, in person on the clouds of heaven, and with power and great glory to introduce the millennial age, to bind Satan and place him in the abyss, to lift the curse which now rests upon the whole creation, to restore Israel to her own land and to give her the realization of God’s covenant promises, and to bring the whole world to the knowledge of God (Deut. 30:1–10; Isa. 11:9; Ezek. 37:21–28; Matt. 24:15–25:46; Acts 15:16–17; Rom. 8:19–23; 11:25–27; 1 Tim. 4:1–3; 2 Tim. 3:1–5; Rev. 20:1–3).
Article XXI—The Eternal State
We believe that at death the spirits and souls of those who have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation pass immediately into His presence and there remain in conscious bliss until the resurrection of the glorified body when Christ comes for His own, whereupon soul and body reunited shall be associated with Him forever in glory; but the spirits and souls of the unbelieving remain after death conscious of condemnation and in misery until the final judgment of the great white throne at the close of the millennium, when soul and body reunited shall be cast into the lake of fire, not to be annihilated, but to be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power (Luke 16:19–26; 23:42; 2 Cor. 5:8; Phil. 1:23; 2 Thess. 1:7–9; Jude 6–7; Rev. 20:11–15).

MY COMMENTARY
It is telling! I have thus completed my investigation into the futurist trail from Francisco Ribera, Cardinal Bernamine, Darby, etc… to Cyrus Ingerson Scoffield and unto the various seminaries such as the DTS above in America who are all infected with Scofieldism. Thus we have Hal Lindsay, Jack Van Impe, etc… who follow the line and do not have the decency of outlining all three infallible streams of prophecy interpretation. This is very disturbing to me as all Christians should know ALL three streams if they are worth their salts. Not so the futurists they are disinformational as they never disclose from where they obtain “their” so called viewpoint or that in the past the Papacy was already identified by Luther, Calvin, Grattan Guiness, etc… Why suppress these views from within the very Church of God????? We are all Christians therein!

Great articles but not trustworthy as I do not seem to find a name of the author.
Such great work deserves a real person behind it, who is so convinced that he/she is writing the truth as far as possible, that he/she is willing to put his/her name to it. If not, it nullifies all that is written.

The trustworthiness of the articles is based on how they line up with the Scriptures, for that is our measuring rod. The trustworthiness has nothing to do with my name. To say that it’s all nullified because my name is not on it is nonsensical.

His home address and phone number? Glad you thought the articles were “great” but you really need to dig a little deeper probably and, like the Bereans discover for yourself if they line up with Scripture. That is the only trustworthiness there is to anything! I am puzzled that you would think they were “great” without thinking they were trustworthy which equates to Biblical. And if you have questions about who he is and his background, he would probably answer your questions if they were reasonable.

….there is an inportant afterthought that needs attention.
We must remember that everyone who names the name of Christ must depart from iniquity – Paul to Timothy. This is not a suggestion. It is a command reiterated right through Scripture.
If a believer, a true believer in Jesus Christ and in Him alone, falls into temptation and does not turn from and confessing his sin, then they have begun to walk the way of the harlot.
They have begun to trade their first love for another love – that is unfaithfulness, or spiritual adultery. They go back to the Law of Sin and Death. and serve sin once again.
Paul says to whom you yield your members to, you become a slave to that one.
Let us be slaves to righteousness, which is in Christ Jesus.
The greater concern is on us who claim greater knowledge of Jesus Christ. More light, more accountability.
Let us who truly believe in jesus as the only Redeemer, Saviour, the only one we bow down to, make sure that we do not turn aside from following Him and thus come under greater judgment than even Rome itself.

Here is an interesting twist on 6 6 6.
Romans is the 6th book of the N.T. the 6th verse of the 6th chapter says

“KNOWING THIS, THAT OUR OLD MAN IS CRUCIFIED WITH HIM (CHRIST), THAT THE BODY OF SIN MAY BE DESTROYED, THAT HENCEFORTH WE SHOULD NOT SERVE SIN.” Romans 6:6

666 in Revelation is the number of man, of the beast. It speaks of total enslavement to the Man of Sin.
But if we know, really believe Romans 6:6, that we, our old sin nature has been crucified with Christ (at the time of His crucifixion, God working it all out) in order to render our service to and craving for sin entirely useless (literal meaning of ‘destroyed’), then we must know that we are set free from the power of sin through Jesus Christ.
Jesus set us free to wholly serve our righteous God.

When Israel saw their lords dead on the shore of the Red Sea, they knew then and there that they were completely set free from the old life; literally cut of from it.
Now they could and had to live in the new life…but most of them did not…they did not mix their hearing with faith (Heb 4:2) they played the harlot. Without faith…it is impossible to please God. They did not please God. The Father said of His Son…”…in whom I am well pleased.”

let us therefore fear…… Heb 4:1.
If we are in Christ, then we can by His power alone be pleasing to God by overcoming sin through active and vibrant holy faith in Jesus and His finished work on the cross and His enabling in the power of the Holy Ghost.
Doing so will ensure that we do not play the harlot.

Romans 6. Romans 6. Romans 6. Romans 6.
Let us lay hold of the message of Romans 6…all of it.

The Popes of Rome, the Son of Perdition, are playing a role in these end times, and will be destroyed at Messiah’s coming. But the Popes of Rome do not control the Vatican and the world anymore; the earth beast of Revelation 13, the Jesuit General, the Black Pope, the False Prophet, controls the White Pope and the Vatican. The Jesuits are using the Vatican to draw the world under their power. They spread around the world teaching a false salvation message, so that now 1.2 billion catholics revere/worship the beast, the Pope of Rome. Now in Pope Francis, a Jesuit, they are drawing more Protestants to the papal church; they are drawing the Orthodox Church back to the papal church; and they are drawing Muslims unto the Papal Church.

Both the antichrist beast Pope of Rome and the false prophet Jesuit General will be destroyed when Messiah returns.

The temple is clearly defined by the Apostle Paul. “Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone, in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:19-22

The Popes of Rome pretend to be a part of the true church, so they sit among the temple of Elohim; and proclaim to be God, to forgive sins and to provide salvation.

Well done my brother in Christ Jesus, truly well done. I find sometimes that our family splits hairs where there is no need, and you have truly summed it all up with your closing statements. It is a blessing to have met you Ian, and I simply cannot reiterate how much we are in agreement concerning not only Rome, but keeping our focus on Jesus alone. He is the Pearl of Great Price, He is the Good Shepherd. He is my first love, my Saviour, my Lord, and my God.

Blessings to you and your family,
