The Antichrist Son of Perdition Already Sits In The Temple Of God Showing Himself That He Is God

Christian Pastors teach that someday the Antichrist will enter the Temple of God and proclaim to be God.

With that expectation, let me ask you a question…

If a man appeared on the world stage and proclaimed…

  • to be God
  • to be Jesus Christ in the flesh
  • that he was sinless
  • that he was infallible
  • to forgive sins
  • that salvation is only through him
  • that anyone who rejects him will go to hell
  • that he has all power on heaven, earth and hell
  • and that the kings of the Earth should submit to his authority

would you conclude that he is the antichrist?

Friend, for over 1,500 years, the Roman Catholic Church Popes have sat in the
Temple of God and declared all of these things.

Our Christian forefathers responded by boldly witnessing against the Catholic Church as the false church, the Mother of Harlots, but the deceiver has caused today’s Christians to not understand what the great theologians have said:

The Westminster Confession of Faith declared, “There is no other head of the church but the Lord Jesus Christ, nor can the Pope of Rome in any sense be head thereof, but is that antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalteth himself in the church against Christ, and all that is called God.” (Source: Chapter 25, Point 6)

John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist Church declared, “He is in an emphatical sense, the Man of Sin, as he increases all manner of sin above measure. And he is, too, properly styled the Son of Perdition, as he has caused the death of numberless multitudes, both of his opposers and followers… He it is…that exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped…claiming the highest power, and highest honour…claiming the prerogatives which belong to God alone.” (Source: Antichrist and His Ten Kingdoms, by John Wesley, pg. 110.)

John Knox, founder of the Presbyterian denomination in Scotland, declared, “that tyranny which the pope himself has for so many ages exercised over the church” and that the pope should be recognized as “the very antichrist, and son of perdition, of whom Paul speaks.”  (Source: The Zurich Letters, pg. 199)

John Calvin declared, “Some persons think us too severe and censorious when we call the Roman pontiff Antichrist. But those who are of this opinion do not consider that they bring the same charge of presumption against Paul himself, after whom we speak and whose language we adopt… I shall briefly show that (Paul’s words in II Thess. 2) are not capable of any other interpretation than that which applies them to the Papacy.”  (Source: Institutes by John Calvin.)

Martin Luther, father of the Lutheran Church, declared “We here are of the conviction that the papacy is the seat of the true and real Antichrist.” (Source: The Prophetic Faith of Our Fathers, by LeRoy Froom. Vol. 2., pg. 121.)

John Wycliffe, William Tyndale, John Bunyan, the King James Bible translators, the Pastors of the Baptist confessions of Faith, Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, and many others; all identified the office of the Papacy as the antichrist.

I pray that you will seek the truth and not dismiss this Bible study based of your previous understanding, because false prophets have misled the church.

Please read this Bible study page all the way through, and you will see the truth.

In 2 Thessalonians 2:6-7, Paul told us that the ‘Son of Perdition’ would be revealed after the Roman Empire was taken out of the way. The Roman Catholic Church Popes fulfilled this when they rose to power after the Roman Empire collapsed.

And now you know what is restraining, that he (the Son of Perdition) may be revealed in his own time… 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.”

If Paul was referring to the Holy Spirit restraining and being removed, like many Pastors teach, then Paul would have just said that.

But Paul was writing during a time when the Roman Empire was in power, so if he would have written “only the Roman Emperors who now restrains will do so until the Roman Empire is taken out of the way,” it would have caused even greater persecution of the Church by Rome, who would not tolerate such statements.

The first Pope of Rome was Simon Magus (Simon the Sorcerer) from Acts 8, not the Apostle Peter, so you can see why Paul would say that the mystery of lawlessness was already at work.

In 321 A.D. Emperor Constantine combined the pagan idolatry of Rome with the Christian Church.

The Popes took the title of Pontifex Maximus, the high priest of Rome.

After the last Western Roman Emperor was removed (taken away) in 476 A.D., the Roman Catholic Church ascended in power in Rome.

In 538 A.D., the Roman Catholic Church gained religious and civil power when Eastern Roman Emperor Justinian issued a decree making the Pope head of all churches.

Paul told us in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 that “the man of sin… the son of perdition… 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 rebuilt Jewish temple, it is the Church of Christ.

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.”

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.

The Roman Catholic Church is a false church who preaches salvation by works through the Papal Church, not salvation by faith through Jesus Christ.

The Pope sits in the midst of the Christian Church, appearing to be Christian, but their words and their fruit reveals that they oppose Christ.

Paul warned us that the Son of Perdition would proclaim to be God.

Friend, the Popes have repeatedly claimed to be God. This can’t be any clearer.

Saint Pope Nicholas I said, “I am in all and above all, so that God himself, and I, the vicar of God, hath both one consistory…and I am able to do almost all that God can do…I then, being above all…seem by this reason, to be above all gods.” (Source: “The Church Historians of England: Reformation Period,by Josiah Pratt, pub. 1856, p.159)

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 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 Greogory IX,” Book 1, chapter 3.)

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

Statements from a Pope, known as Papal Bulls and ex cathedra statements, remain the stance of the Roman Catholic Church, until a Pope retracts it.

They are like a law in the U.S.  If a President enacts a law, it’s the rule of the land until another President gets the law overturned.

So if a previous Pope proclaimed it and the Roman Catholic Church hasn’t issued a retraction, then it is still their official stance, even though current Pope Francis I is not saying it in public… yet!

The Pope sits in the midst of the Christian Church, proclaiming a different message than Jesus, one that at its core opposes Jesus.

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.” (Source: Evangelical Christendom, Vol. 49, January 1, 1895,  p. 15, “the organ of the Evangelical Alliance,” published in London by J. S. Phillips.)

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

Jesuits priests have spread around the world, so that today over 1.2 Billion people trust in salvation by works through the Catholic Church. They currently deceive 1/6th of the world’s population. Is that not antichrist?

And now Pope Francis I is saying that Muslims worship the same god as Christians, that all religions point to the same god, and that even good atheists can go to heaven based on their good works. Is that not antichrist?

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

They proclaim that salvation is ONLY through the Roman Catholic Church.

Pope Francis I said “You cannot find Jesus outside the Church.” (Source: EWTN Global Catholic News,  pronounced on April 23 in the Apostolic Palace’s Pauline Chapel.)

Pope Innocent III declares, “With our hearts we believe and with our lips we confess but one Church, not that of the heretics, but the Holy Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church, outside which we believe that no one is saved.” (Source: Denzinger 423)

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: Papal Bull Unam Sanctam A.D. 1302)

Pope Eugene IV declared, “No one, let his alms giving be as great as it may, no one, even if he pour out his blood for the Name of Jesus Christ, can be saved unless they abide within the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”  (Source: The Bull Cantate Domino, 1441)

Pope Pius IX said, “It must be held by faith that outside the Apostolic Roman Church, no one can be saved;” (Source: Denzinger 1647)

Pope Leo XII (1823 – 1829): “We profess that there is no salvation outside the Church. …For the Church is the pillar and ground of the truth. With reference to those words Augustine says: `If any man be outside the Church he will be excluded from the number of sons, and will not have God for Father since he has not the Church for mother.’” (Encyclical, Ubi Primum)

Acts 4:12 confirms that salvation is only through Jesus. “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

The Popes title of Vicar of Christ is the ‘antichrist’ in John’s epistles.

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.

The word antichrist doesn’t just mean “against Christ“, it means “in place of Christ” or “substitute Christ.”

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 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 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.”  (Source: Pope Pius XII, The Raccolta, Benzinger Brothers, Boston, 1957, No. 626.)

These blasphemous Papal proclamations oppose what Jesus told us in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Below, you can see how God has been warning about the Roman Catholic Church and the Pope for over 2,500 years, since His revelations to Daniel.

Daniel 2:41 describes them as the Iron/Clay feet of the statue, as they are a Church/State.

Whereas you saw 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, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay.”

The other parts of the statue in Daniel 2, the gold head of Babylon, the silver chest of Medo-Persia, the bronze waist of Greece and the iron legs of Rome, were only political empires.

The iron/clay feet represent the church/state of the Roman Catholic Church, which emerged after the Roman Empire was destroyed.

The Roman Catholic Church rose to power after the Roman Empire split into 10 kingdoms, fulfilling Daniel 7:24.

The ten horns (kingdoms) are ten kings Who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them; He shall be different from the first ones, And shall subdue three kings.”

Out of the ten kingdoms, the Catholic Church emerged, who was different because it was a church/state.

The Catholic Church changed the calendar and law, fulfilling Daniel 7:25.

“He shall intend to change times (calendar) and law.”

At the First 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.

At the Council of Laodicea in 363 A.D. they changed the last day of the week to Sunday, instead of Saturday as God ordained in the Bible.

In the Catechism, they removed God’s 2nd Commandment, which forbids idol worship, as they have many idols such as Mary. They then divided the 10th Commandment into two parts, so there is 10 total.

The Roman Catholic Church is the Little Horn of Daniel  fulfilling Daniel 7:8.

I was considering the horns (kingdoms), and there was another horn (kingdom), a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots.”

They subdued and destroyed three of the ten kingdoms (the Heruli, Ostrogoths and Vandals) who did not bow down to them.

The church has a single man (the Pope) acting and speaking for the whole body, fulfilling Daniel 7:8.

And there, in this horn (kingdom), were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.”

The name ‘Vatican’ means ‘divining serpent’ from Latin Vatis=diviner, and can=serpent, fulfilling Revelation 13:2.

The dragon (serpent) gave him (the Roman Catholic Church Pope) his power, his throne, and great authority.”

Popes speak great things and blasphemies, fulfilling Revelation 13:5.

And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies…

Pope Clement VI declared “No man outside obedience to the Pope of Rome can ultimately be saved. All who have raised themselves against the faith of the Roman Church, and died in final impenitence have been damned, and gone down to Hell.” (Source: Pope Clement VI, “Super Quibusdam,” as cited in “Apostolic Digest, Book V: The Book of Obedience”)

The Roman Catholic Church ruled supreme for 1,260 years, fulfilling Revelation 13:5, which is speaking about the Antichrist beast.

and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.”

42 months is 1,260 days. In this prophecy, 1 day = 1 year, so it’s 1,260 years.

In 538 A.D., the Roman Catholic Church gained religious and civil power when Emperor  Justinian issued a decree making the Pope head of all churches.

In 1798 A.D., Napoleon’s army marched into Rome and captured the Pope, ending the reign of the Papacy.

They assert power over ALL of the Earth, fulfilling 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.”

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)

The Pope was stripped of authority and taken into captivity, causing a mortal wound, fulfilling 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.”

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.”

They were restored to power in 1929, which healed the deadly head wound.

Rome . . . was granted sovereign extraterritorial status in 1929 by the Lateran Treaty and Concordat.” Encyclopedia Britannica, 1990 Edition

Now there are 1.2 billion Catholics worldwide who revere the Pope, who is gathering Protestant Churches, Orthodox Churches, Muslims, and all religions to the Catholic Church.

The Catholic Church is the beast and the Pope is the man in Revelation 13:18.

Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

Vicar of Christ in Latin is ‘Vicarius Filii Dei’, which equates numerically to 666.

They are arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with precious stones, fulfilling 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.

They are the Mother of Harlots, who is drunk with the blood of the saints.

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

“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.)

Rome is seated upon seven mountains, fulfilling 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.

They arose within a densely populated area with cultural diversity, fulfilling Revelation 17:15.

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

They rose to power from within the ten original tribes (monarchies) of divided Roman Empire. These nations spoke different languages.

The Roman Catholic Church is both a Church and a City, which kings of the Earth bow down to, fulfilling Revelation 17:18.

And the woman (the harlot church) whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”

Presidents and world leaders visit Vatican City and bow to the Pope, who has influence in every nation.

But Jesus was not specifically referring to a physical city, He was symbolically referring to the woman that He described as Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots, who was drunk with the blood of the saints… the Roman Catholic Church.

Daniel 2:34 declares that the feet of iron and clay, the church and state of the Roman Catholic Church, will be destroyed by Christ in the end times.

You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces.”

Revelation 18:21 is the fulfillment of Christ destroying the Roman Catholic Church, which is called Mystery Babylon.

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 “great city” is not a physical city like Jerusalem, which so many Pastors teach.

Revelation 17:18 says that it is the harlot church, Mystery Babylon, the Roman Catholic Church, who will be destroyed.

As you have clearly seen in the study, the Roman Catholic Church is the false church which opposes Christ. And the Lord has foretold that He will destroy her and all those in her, and all those who support her.

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 God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!

David

Thank you for your comment uroš 🙂

I assume you’re referring to the Fuel Project videos, which do an amazing job of explaining the battle between good and evil. I didn’t produce the videos but thought so highly of them, that I posted all of them for easy access.

Trust me, you’re not alone.

As the Lord has revealed all of these deceptions to me, I felt very alone, as most Pastors teach prophecy concepts that are counter to what the Lord was revealing.

But it’s never been about me being right and them being wrong; it’s about the truth of the Word of God vs. the deceptions of the evil one.

There is a remnant of believers, such as yourself, that the Lord is revealing these truths to, so considered yourself blessed! 🙂

Sadly, most Christians can’t see the truth because they don’t study the Bible and they blindly trust Pastors, who have been deceived at cemetery… I mean seminary. 😛

I pray that you will continue to read the studies and share them with others, so that the light of the truth will extinguish the darkness of the enemy.

Grace and peace to you in Jesus name! David
