Satan’s Bride: The Roman Catholic Church & The Vatican, Part 4

In my humble and spiritual opinion, there seems to be some VERY strong evidence (atleast to ME, anyways) that Rome (e.g. The Vatican) is the possible Whore of Babylon from the book of Revelation in the New Testament!

Possible Evidence?

The book of Revelation, chapters 17-18, 19:2 and 2 Thessalonians 3-4, etc. give us some possible clues about whom the “beast” might be and also whom the “whore” might be.

17

And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

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.

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.

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The MOTHER Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.

6And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

And the angel 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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

1And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth”.

18

And after these things I saw another another angel come down from heaven, having great power: and the earth was lightened with his glory.

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

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.

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,

10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:

12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,

13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.

14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,

16 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!

17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,

18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!

19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;

23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth”.

2 “For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.”

2 Thessalonians 3-4:

3 “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 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.

 Catholic “Quotes” about Its Very Own Importance (very striking):

Cardinal James Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (Ayers Publishing, 1978): 108:But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify

The Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine (1957): 50:

Q. Which is the Sabbath day?
A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Q. Why Do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.

=====================

Chancellor Albert Smith for Cardinal of Baltimore Archdiocese, letter dated February 10, 1920:If Protestants would follow the Bible, they should worship God on the Sabbath day by God, which is Saturday. In keeping the Sunday, they are following a law of the Catholic Church

======================

Stephen Keenan, Catholic—Doctrinal Catechism 3rd Edition: 174:

Question: Have you any other way of proving the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?

Answer: “Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her, she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the 1st day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the 7th day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority

=========================

Our Sunday Visitor (February 5, 1950): “Practically everything Protestants regard as essential or important they have received from the Catholic Church… The Protestant mind does not seem to realize that in accepting the Bible and observing the Sunday, in keeping Christmas and Easter, they are accepting the authority of the spokesman for the church, the Pope

“Pope,” Ferraris’ Ecclesiastic Dictionary:The Pope is of so great dignity and so exalted that he is not a mere man, but as it were God, and the vicar of God”

==========================

Catholic Record (September 1, 1923): The [Catholic] Church is above the Bible, and this transference of the Sabbath observance is proof of that fact”

Pope Leo XIII, Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae (The Reunion of Christendom), June 20, 1894: 
”We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty

10 Interesting Facts:

  1. Vatican City is one of THE MOST riches cities upon the whole ENTIRE EARTH!

  2. The official colors of the Vatican are Purple & Scarlett!

  3. The Vatican and many of its “crowns” and priestly garments and artwork and artifacts are decked with gold, and precious stones and pearls!

  4. The Catholic Church severely tortured and killed off many true Christians (those that believed in faith in & prayer to Jesus Christ, ONLY) during the Middle Ages!

  5. The city of Rome sits on top of seven hills!

  6. The Pope or priest holds up a “golden cup” during Mass in which actual wine is poured into!

  7. Nearly every world leader and/or world religion has had some sort of ties with the Vatican! (There’s now also things such as “Interfaith Councils” and the “Coexist Movement”, which the Catholic Church, in and of itself, is a part of — more like the “leader” of such “movements”)

  8. The Catholic Church calls itself the “Mother Church” (calling itself a WOMAN)!

  9. Satanic/Masonic symbols are all throughout the Catholic Church (whom truly worships Satan & his “UN-SAINTS”)!

10. The Pope calls himself “Holy Father” and claims he is “The Vicar of Christ” (which essentially means that Catholics/he himself calls himself “God’s Mouthpiece on Earth” – which would be more or less equivalent to calling himself/referring to himself as “Jesus Christ incarnate!” Therefore, in light of 2 Thessalonians 2:4, it’s rather “interesting”, isn’t it?)

 

 

 

 

Satan’s Bride: The Roman Catholic Church & The Vatican, Part 2

In my previous post on the matter, I listed 20 things that the Catholic Church believed/practiced that went AGAINST the bible. In this post, I’m going to further expand on some things and even add a few things the Catholic Church believes/practices that proves they are a church of Satan in disguise!

1. The Sale of Indulgences.

indulgences

In part 1, I mentioned there IS no such thing as “Purgatory”. You won’t find Purgatory ANYWHERE in the bible, whatsoever! During the years of the early 1540’s (give or take), there was something called the “Sale of Indulgences”. That more or less meant that if a person were willing to pay a big enough sum of money to the Catholic church, they could REMIT punishment of their sin(s) in “Purgatory”.

But according to the bible, there IS no “Purgatory” and a person can NOT “buy their way out of hell”. So sadly, instead of buying their way OUT of hell with their hard-earned and/or hard-saved money, Catholic lay-people around the time of the early 1540’s were instead buying their way INTO hell. Sadly, many Catholic people today (though they no longer participate in the sale of indulgences for the most part), STILL believe that they can pray dead people out of hell or have other people pray THEIR way out of hell. And we know from the bible that that’s simply not true for there is but one Earthly life on this Earth and one eternal judgement.

2. Relics.

It never ceases to amaze me just how many different “relics” the Catholic church has. They have the “relic” of this or the “relic” of that. But what most of people don’t realize is that all those “relics” are actually false IDOLS that are being WORSHIPED ***just like** the Golden Calf of Moses & Aaron’s time in history! But in fact, the Catholic Church carries around an “adorned skull” on a pillow (something that seems like an event at a Masonic lodge, somewhere). Does anyone else find this strange?

3. Walls, Ceilings, Chandeliers made of nothing but real-life human bones. (Does anyone else see the total eeriness in all this?) Note: The Catholic Church claims it’s the bones of “previous popes” and “Catholics”. But during the time of the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition, many hundreds of Jews and “true Christians” (those who prayed to Jesus and Jesus Christ, ALONE) were murdered.

4. Veneration of the Dead. (similar to #3).

5. The Catholic Church believes that Mary (mother of Jesus Christ) was “immaculately conceived”; in other words, they believe that Mary was born of a Virgin, just like Jesus. And we know from the bible that Jesus Christ is the ONLY one who’s EVER been conceived by a “virgin”. (This belief about “Mary” + “her parents” are nothing more than a complete mockery of the TRUE holy family comprised of Jesus, Mary & Joseph!)

6. Catholic doctrine says that the Holy Spirit is Mary’s spouse! (And we know from the bible that JOSEPH and Joseph ALONE was Mary’s spouse!)

_MaryHS mary, holy spirit, 2 mary, holy spiritholy, mary, spouse of

7. Child molestation oftentimes goes unreported. Instead, they seem to transfer “child molesting” priests from parish to parish.

This is just an example of one of MANY child molesting priests who were transferred from parish to parish.

8. The clerical dress of the Catholic church is Satanic, in and of itself. This is like something out of the movie “Eyes Wide Shut” and/or similar to the KKK! (Does anyone else find this strange?) 

catholic church dressed like witches, uh, yeahHELLISH GARB 5 hellish garb 4 HELLISH GARB LIKE KKK

9. The outside of the Vatican in Vatican city is shaped like a skull, plus there’s tons of Gargoyles (“sculptured witches/demons”) on Catholic churches everywhere. Anyways, these “sculpted witches/demons” seem to be visually “welcoming” demonic spirits INTO the church, for why would demonic sculptures “scare off” demons, as some claim? That’s honestly laughable at best! 

In my mind, they were put there as some sort of “show”. Demons are just like Satan, they want constant worship! People worshiping them in the name of so-called “saints” is not enough for them, no! They want even MORE worship…….in MORE sculpted form…….hence, “gargoyles”.

Many falsely claim they were there to “scare OFF” demons. Well, if that were the case, you know what would TRULY scare off demons? Jesus’s words and/or bible passages!!!!!! Why? Because those things have the bible’s TRUTH in them, whereas, gargoyles do NOT!!!!!! It’s almost like the demons themselves wanted something to try to scare people with, so people would actually fear/admire them and wouldn’t trust in the name of Jesus to cast them out or something!

10. There are Masonic symbols all throughout the Vatican, not to mention that they worship the Sun. (Note: It’s not halos you see surrounding the painted figures on the walls, they’re actually supposed to represent Suns). Please note that other world religions ALSO have theirgodsdepicted with this same general “halo” as the Catholic Church. Odd, isn’t it?

11. Not surprisingly, it is highly rumored that Satanic services/rituals go on, inside the Vatican. And some such “people” in the Catholic Church that have personal knowledge of this have now come forward, along with other true Christians out there who wish to shed the light on such matters.

This Nation Has Turned Its Back on God Almighty….

This nation has now turned its back on God Almighty. And now our nation is being cursed because of this fact.

[Update: Dec 2013] Here are just a few, sad examples of some of the things going on in today’s world:

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2008/apr/08/australia

And have you ever stopped to wonder about the following bible passage which reads: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” [2 Timothy 4:3-4]? One of those “LIES/fables” (for “cultural itching ears” is “political correctness”!

A Muslim “extremist” carried out a massacre on our own American soil at Ft. Hood and people don’t even blink an eye. And the sad & brutal reality is that he KILLED AMERICAN SOLDIERS ON AMERICAN SOIL while shouting “Allah Akbar!”…..Sadly, the only thing our politically correct/liberal media here in the U.S. wants to do is to paint HIM as “the victim”….while painting OUR own U.S. soldiers who were killed as the “perpetrators”…..What is wrong with the world today? It now seems as though politically correct/liberal media is now putting everything “backwards”……substituting good for evil and evil for good. Or is it just me?

Well, believe it or not, it’s the False Doctrines of “Politically Correct” and “Once Saved, Always Saved” that will slowly destroy this nation and this world…..Don’t believe me? Look how far down this nation & this world has fallen already, due to “political correctness”, both on a political/social level AND on a “religious level”. For example, most in today’s modern-day American society would probably say that it’s “politically incorrect” to say to people that they must obey the 10 commandments and New Testament teachings in order to obtain eternal life with Jesus Christ someday.

But the brutal reality is that, according to Matthew 7:13-14 [book of Matthew, chapter 7, verses 13-14], Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it”.

In other words, VERY FEW people are gonna enter into eternal life with Jesus Christ someday but yet, many, many, MANY people will take the “popular way” out by NOT following Jesus Christ and his commandments in the bible and go to everlasting condemnation.

It’s also ironic how the media & popular culture doesn’t DARE go against Islam, Mormonism, Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddhism due to *political correctness*, yet, doesn’t even hesitate a single moment to go against true, bible-following Christians!

But hey, that’s just the tip of the iceberg! What about the “Modern Sodomite” performance at the American Music Awards in which a young man placed other men’s heads in his crotch and kissed a male keyboarder for a prolonged time on national live TV, the fact that the Lutheran Church of America now accepts sexually-active homosexual members to be *ordained clergy* or that some schools in this country (such as CA) ruled against the PARENTS who didn’t want their elementary school kid(s) to be subjected to a “pro-homosexual agenda” in the school? Or people suing one another for the most frivolous of reasons?

“Politically Correct” has gone WAY TOO FAR in this country and it’ll only get worse, people!

And what’s sad about that whole spiel is that the bible says in Genesis 12:3 the following: “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the Earth be blessed.”

So what does that mean in plain English, some of you may ask? It basically means that God Almighty will bless the nations that bless Jesus Christ (the BIBLICAL “Jewish” Jesus Christ – the one true seed of Abraham) and curse those nations who “curse/persecute” the BIBLICAL (true seed of Abraham) Jesus Christ! Therefore, in light of that passage, it’s pretty scary that this here U.S. country is now starting to go “anti-bible” in its political sentiments. Every now and then, our U.S. leaders will do something that “seems” to be pro-bible to try to fool some people into thinking it DOESN’T hate the true, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ. But truthfully, we now have one of the most open anti-bible administrations we’ve ever had so far (that I’m aware of).

People, we are living in the last days. The days that the Bible spoke about long, long ago. We’re on the close verge of WWIII, the Euphrates River is beginning to dry up (Revelation 16:12, http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/14/world/middleeast/14euphrates.html), and a One World Government is now in the slow process of being set up (Lisbon Treaty, Copenhagen Treaty, Daniel chapter 7 in Old Testament, Revelation chapter 13 and 17 in New Testament, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMe5dOgbu40).

Instead of putting your faith, love and trust into the WORLD (which by the way, will soon pass away someday), put your faith, trust and love into God Almighty (Jesus Christ) instead! Why settle for “temporary security” in an “unstable world” that’ll soon pass away someday when you can have ETERNAL SECURITY in the kingdom of God that will NEVER PASS AWAY?????????????

Please look at Revelation 20:15 in the New Testament to find out what happens to people who put their faith, love and trust into the WORLD and MATERIAL THINGS instead of putting their faith, love and trust into Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ONLY! For Revelation 20:15 says “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”.

P.S.: As Christians, we all need to diligently pray for all of those folks out there who haven’t yet come to faith and love in Jesus Christ (including gov’t leaders, celebrities, friends/family, etc.). Don’t think your prayers won’t be effective. Many a scientist, Satanist, Muslim, Orthodox Jew, Atheist, Skeptic, etc. have come to faith in Jesus Christ through the daily, diligent prayers of believers! Remember: With the Lord, ALL things are possible. May the Lord God Be With You All, During These Here End Times. Amen.
