FRANCIS & THE DRAGON – Pope Francis Hosts Feathered Serpent God As Part Of Deity Exchange Program/ The Onion  9/9/16

My friends, this is a very serious message.  We are living in an ELIJAH moment.  It is time to use the facility or get off the pot.  CHOOSE!!  Choose you this day whom you will serve.  CHOOSE LIFE!!  Whose report will you believe?  Do you stand with GOD? or Do you stand with those who hate HIM?   IF GOD BE GOD than WORSHIP HIM!  But, if BAAL be god than worship him.  Which do YOU CHOOSE?

When these “religious leaders” take their 10 Commandments to Mt Sinai and declare a NEW HUMANITY… I KNOW THE TRIBULATIONS WILL BEGIN!  GOD WILL NOT BE MOCKED!

This Chrislam is straight out of HELL.  There is NO CHRIST in Chrislam.   Don’t you wonder too, where is the Jewish symbol in their logo?  And, what about the HINDU’s?  They are supposedly in the mix.  Where is their building?  Where is their symbolism?  Why don’t we hear much about them in these NEWS FLASHES?

I am convinced that by the end of this year they will have produced their NEW WORLD ORDER, NEW WORLD RELIGION and THEIR FALSE MESSIAH.  We have already seen the false prophet at work for some time now.  Francis is probably their best face of the False Prophet yet.

I believe by the time you are done with this article you will agree that the MUSLIMS/OTTOMANS/ISLAMISTS are the final kingdom of the Daniel Prophecy as they were the final portion of the Roman Empire.

We are seeing the great falling away, which will be followed by the revealing of the AntiChrist.  There will be WORLD WAR.  We are HERE at the end of the World as we knew it.

We see that the United Nations is the power behind this One World Religion as they are behind every other part of the New World Order.

New York, USA, 13 June 2019 – The World Economic Forum and the United Nations signed today a Strategic Partnership Framework outlining areas of cooperation to deepen institutional engagement and jointly accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
May 9, 2022And the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the WEF and UN—a ceremonial convergence of belief and possible action toward accelerating its 2030 Agenda—marks the potential beginning of Klaus Schwab’s new world order: one in which the top 1% of corporate global elites are able to exert control over 99% of the world population.

NEWS UPDATE – 1st March 2021

The Sunday rest law issue is being agitated all across the world today and the likes of ‘Covid-19’ and ‘climate change’ have brought this to the forefront. The Sunday issue is even being discussed in countries like Turkey, yes Turkey, as the following news article confirms:

The ‘Sunday’ debate in the Turkish retail industry has reignited as tradespeople reiterated calls for shopping malls and grocery store chains to remain closed on the last day of the week. Shopkeepers, craftsmen and small businesses want the matter to be included in the retail draft regulation, citing Europe as an example … The demand reemerged as the country has been imposing lockdowns on weekends and nighttime curfews on weekdays.” (source)

What has brought about this debate? Covid lockdowns. So you can see the plans of the Vatican behind this Covid ‘pandemic’, and that is to give the world a reason to accept the Sunday rest law. They call Sunday the ‘last day of the week’ in the article, but this is simply a ploy by Satan to replace Saturday, the true 7th day of the week and God’s true holy Sabbath day rest, with Sunday in opposition to God. And did you notice that they ‘cited Europe as an example’? And who is it pushing the Sunday rest law in Europe? The Conference of European ROMAN CATHOLIC bishops [COMECE], who have an office in the European Union’s headquarters in Brussels. How far reaching the Vatican is!

The Conference of EU Catholic Bishops released a video recently stating they are ‘committed to promoting Sunday as the common weekly day of rest.’ SEE HERE

The discussion concerning the Sunday rest law is taking place all across the world right now. Take a look at the following news items and you will see this is a worldwide issue being agitated:

AMERICA – “Bring Back the Blue Laws – Americans in those early quarantine days-after the haze of their Netflix-binge had evaporated-woke up with a surprised appreciation for what earlier generations had considered normal: Sunday laws, otherwise known as blue laws. As America returns to normality, we should consider these laws and their manifold benefits afresh.” (source)

PHILIPPINES – “Other barangays in Cebu city where the rate of Covid-19 infection is going up should follow what Barangays Guadalupe and Lahug did in closing down on Sundays all establishments … Perhaps, the government should rethink and reimpose the ‘Blue Sunday Law.’ (source)

TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO – Let’s keep Sunday sacred – SUNDAY IS the soul of the nation. It is more than just a fanatical religious preoccupation. There is a reason why the day was woven into the fabric of our society. We have to save Sunday … Let us keep the sacredness of Sunday in its rightful place, as central to the resolution of problems in our nation. We have to preserve the order of things or the disorder with destroy us. Let’s save Sunday for our nation’s sake!” (source)

Make note of what it said above – Sunday keeping is central to the resolution of problems – The mark of Papal Rome will be touted as just that – the solution to the world’s problems!

It will be declared that the nation is offending God by the violation of the Sunday-Sabbath, that this sin has brought calamities which will not cease until Sunday observance shall be strictly enforced, and that those who present the claims of the fourth commandment, thus destroying reverence for Sunday, are troublers of the nation, preventing its restoration to divine favor and temporal prosperity.” (The Spirit of Prophecy, Volume 4. p,407-408)

MALAYSIA – Sunday should be made ‘rest with family’ day – Women, Family and Community Development Deputy Minister Hannah Yeoh has proposed that Sunday be made as a ‘rest with family’ day.” (source)

POLAND – “Poland’s Sunday trading ban to expand from start of 2020 – Polands Sunday trading ban, which has been gradually phased in since its introduction in 2018, will expand again from the start of the new year. The number of Sundays that shops are allowed to stay open will halve from 14 in 2019 to seven in 2020. In addition to most Sundays, trading is also banned on eight other days of the year for religious and secular national holidays … The initiative was launched by the Solidarity trade union with support from the church, and then passed into law by the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party in 2017.” (source)

AMERICA – In a Facebook post, Fox5 New York news asked the question – Should all stores close on Sunday to allow staff a day off to recuperate?” – The answer was a resounding YES! (source)

CANADA – Mayor Cam Guthrie in a Twitter post said – “Just putting this out there for consideration: Once we kick #COVID-19’s butt, I’d suggest that everything be closed on Sunday’s again so that we can appreciate the importance of what taking a pause in our busy lives really means. I think our body, mind and soul would thank us.” (source)

SAMOA – “The Samoa Government is about to permanently ban all commercial activities on Sundays. Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi said on Radio 2AP last week that he had instructed the Attorney General’s office to draft a law to permanently close business activities on Sundays.” (source)

GERMANY – Majority of Germans say shops should be closed on Sundays – A survey published by news agency Idea in Germany concludes that most agree that businesses should remain closed on Sundays. 61 percent of the respondents said they agree with the view that, as a general rule, shops should remain closed on Sundays. Only 28 percent were against and 11 percent did not know or did not respond.” (source)

SERBIA – “Trade unions urge ban on working on Sundays – The president of the Association, Ranka Savic, says that foreign and domestic retailers, trade unions and government representatives will attend the meeting to discuss all the proposed models.” (source)

ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA – Sunday is one step closer to being concretised as the 12th public holiday recognised by the laws of Antigua and Barbuda … Antigua is over 80 percent or more Christian and what came through this discussion Mr Speaker, is the fact that we understood the significance of maintaining Sunday as a common law holiday.” (source)

CROATIA – “Croatia is heading towards a work-free Sunday, in the direction of half of EU countries where Sunday working in shops is restricted … Regulating and restricting Sunday working is also in line with the Directive of Work-Life Balance, adopted by the European Parliament last year, which has to be incorporated into the national legislation of EU countries by 2022.” (source)

Did you catch that? Restricting Sunday working is to be incorporated into national legislation of European countries by 2022. It’s coming!

These reports are all within the past year! Also last year, a number of countries trialled ‘Sunday lockdowns’ due to the supposed ‘pandemic.’ As we reported, in India, several states went into lockdown every Sunday. Also Puerto Rico went into lockdown on Sundays in December. And the Pope himself said that the pandemic should be used to give the environment a rest. A planned event maybe? I think so!

Friends, as you can see the Sunday rest issue is being agitated all over the world and the main people behind this push is the Roman Catholic Church. The Vatican is far reaching in her plans and her Sunday rest law has been a long desired goal, which Revelation 13 speaks of as the mark of the beast. What is the ‘common good’ that the Vatican wants in this world?

“In respecting RELIGIOUS LIBERTY and the COMMON GOOD OF ALL, Christians should seek recognition of SUNDAYS and the Church’s holy days as LEGAL HOLIDAYS.” (Catholic Catechism, #2188)

So when the Pope and leaders speak about uniting on ‘common values’, what are they really pushing for? The mark of Papal Rome – the Sunday rest law, which is based upon their false trinity god [SUN god]. This is the climax and goal of Satan through all that is going on in this world. It is an issue of worship and allegiance, which will be the final test for the whole world – worship the one true God the Father and His only begotten Son and keep their holy Sabbath day, the 7th day (Saturday) – or worship the trinity god of Papal Rome (Sun god) and keep her Sunday rest in direct opposition to Jehovah.

The Papal Church of Rome is the first beast of Revelation 13 and it is the mark of this beast which will be forced upon the world. But keep your eye on America friends, as Revelation 13 tells us that it is the second beast nation, which is none other than America who ’causes the world’ to take the mark of Papal Rome. And if you take a look at our pages WHY DOES AMERICA HAVE PORTRAITS OF INQUISITION POPES IN CONGRESS? and JUSTINIAN’S CODE, AMERICA AND FORCED TRINITY WORSHIP, you will see that American laws are based on ROMAN principles. And Revelation 13 says that America “exercises all the power” (vs.12) of Papal Rome on earth! It’s coming friends, and we need to be ready in Jesus Christ by surrendering all to Him today!



On May 4, 2020UNEP’s Faith for Earth Initiative and the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology agreed to unite efforts by drawing on UNEP’s extensive knowledge of ecological issues and the Forum’s comprehensive website on the world’s religions.

As Iyad Abumoghli, the UN Principal Coordinator of Faith for Earth Initiative, wrote: “I have had several very constructive and fruitful meetings during the Abrahamic Traditions and Environmental Change Workshop that was held June 23-26 in Rhodes, Greece. Faith for Earth has agreed with the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology to unite efforts and strengthen one knowledge platform building on the vast and extensive work of the Forum over the past two decades.”

The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021–2030, led by the United Nations Environment Programme, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and partners such as the Africa Restoration 100 initiative, the Global Landscapes Forum and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, covers terrestrial as well as coastal and marine ecosystems. A global call to action, it will draw together political support, scientific research and financial muscle to massively scale up restoration.  For more information, please contact Iyad Abumoghli:

RHODES – That is a very significant place to hold their meeting.  It is an island that is dedicated from its inception to the worship of the SUN.  Supposedly, the island was formed and claimed by the entity/spirit/god Helios.


RHODE was the goddess-nymph and eponym of the Aegean island of Rhodes. She was a daughter of Poseidon and the wife of Helios the Sun–the island’s patron god. Rhode was identified by the Rhodians with the goddess Athena, and her seven sons with the Kouretes (Curetes). FAMILY OF RHODE PARENTS  Rhodes, to which she gave her name, she was the consort of Helios, as Pindar says, and a co-protector of the island, which was the sole center of her cult.

Her name was applied to the rose, which appeared on Rhodian coinage (This is very important,  Rosicrucians/The Red Rose and The White Rose of the War of the Roses in England.) 

Roses were used to convey messages without words. The Latin expression ” sub rosa ” which means ” under the rose “, means to tell something in secret.

Rhodes is known for the Knights Templars.

Out of all the areas you will see inside the old city, The Street Of The Knights is one of the places that has retained its originality right back from the Collachium times. It has actually been documented that it is one of the most (if not the most) preserved medieval streets in all of Europe. The Ottoman Empire and The Italian Rule
Helios made the island rise from the sea and with Rhode, fathered seven sons there,[7] the Heliadae: Ochimus, CercaphusMacareus,ActisTenagesTriopas, and Candalus) and one daughter, Electryone. Electryone died a virgin and the sons became  legendary  astronomers and rulers of the island, accounting for the cities among which it was divided. Rhode was worshipped on Rhodes in her own name, as well as Halia, the embodiment of the “salt sea” or as the “white goddess”  The Sun/Helios was worshiped in Rhodes.  The ancient forerunner of the Statue of Liberty, the Colossus of Rhodes, a gigantic bronze statue of Helios, god of the sun, their primary divine patron, hailed as the Colossus of Rhodes.  A special series of silver Rhodian didrachms depict the head of Helios with a rayed crown.

The Man of Sin/ The Lawless One / The Deceiver / The AntiChrist

1Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3Let 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; 4Who 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. 5Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2 Thessalonians 2

20Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:

21And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:

22He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

He shall speak against the Most High and wear down the holy ones of the Most High, intending to change the feast days and the law. They shall be handed over to him for a time, two timesand half a time. NET Bible He will speak words against the Most High. He will harass the holy ones of the Most High continually.

1 Kings 18 –  Elijah Confronts Ahab

And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth. 2And Elijah went to shew himself unto Ahab. And there was a sore famine in Samaria. 3And Ahab called Obadiah, which was the governor of his house. (Now Obadiah feared the LORD greatly: 4For it was so, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the LORD, that Obadiah took an hundred prophets, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.) 5And Ahab said unto Obadiah, Go into the land, unto all fountains of water, and unto all brooks: peradventure we may find grass to save the horses and mules alive, that we lose not all the beasts. 6So they divided the land between them to pass throughout it: Ahab went one way by himself, and Obadiah went another way by himself.

7And as Obadiah was in the way, behold, Elijah met him: and he knew him, and fell on his face, and said, Art thou that my lord Elijah? 8And he answered him, I am: go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here. 9And he said, What have I sinned, that thou wouldest deliver thy servant into the hand of Ahab, to slay me? 10As the LORD thy God liveth, there is no nation or kingdom, whither my lord hath not sent to seek thee: and when they said, He is not there; he took an oath of the kingdom and nation, that they found thee not. 11And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here. 12And it shall come to pass, as soon as I am gone from thee, that the Spirit of the LORD shall carry thee whither I know not; and so when I come and tell Ahab, and he cannot find thee, he shall slay me: but I thy servant fear the LORD from my youth. 13Was it not told my lord what I did when Jezebel slew the prophets of the LORD, how I hid an hundred men of the LORD’S prophets by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water? 14And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here: and he shall slay me. 15And Elijah said, As the LORD of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, I will surely shew myself unto him to day.

Elijah on Mount Carmel

16So Obadiah went to meet Ahab, and told him: and Ahab went to meet Elijah.

17And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? 18And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim. 19Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel’s table.

20So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel. 21And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word. 22Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men. 23Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: 24And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.

25And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under. 26And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made. 27And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked. 28And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them. 29And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.

30And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down. 31And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying, Israel shall be thy name: 32And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed. 33And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood. 34And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time. 35And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water.

Elijah’s Prayer

36And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word. 37Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. 38Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. 39And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God. 40And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.

Mark 12:17  Render Unto Caesar

14And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not? 15Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it16And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar’s. 17And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.

The God Julius Caesar

The Bart Ehrman Blog Logo

September 23, 2016

The God Julius Caesar: I mentioned in a previous post the scarcely-remembered-these-days Diogenes Poliorcetes (Diogenes, the Conqueror of Cities), who was acclaimed as a divine being by a hymn-writer (and others) in Athens because he liberated them from their Macedonian overlords.

divine honors paid to rulers of the Roman Empire, starting with Julius Caesar.   We have an inscription dedicated to him in 49 BCE (five years before he was assassinated) discovered in the city of Ephesus, which says this about him:

Descendant of Ares and Aphrodite

The God who has become manifest (θεὸν ἐπιφανῆ)

And universal savior (σωτῆρα) of human life

Before the God Julius Caesar

Prior to Julius Caesar, rulers in the city of Rome itself were not granted divine honors.  But Caesar himself was – before he died, the Senate approved the building of a temple for him, a cult statue, and a priest.  None of these were actually put in place before he was assassinated in 44 BCE.  But soon after his death, his adopted son and heir, Octavian (who later was to become Caesar Augustus) promoted, successfully, the idea that at his death Caesar had been taken up to heaven and been made a god to live with the gods.

Octavian had reasons of his own for wanting the divinization of Caesar….

tr.v. ab·ro·gat·ed, ab·ro·gat·ing, ab·ro·gates

To abolish, do away with, or annul, especially by authority.

Back in 1869 the Roman Catholic church put out a letter that attacked the Protestant believers for their desire to keep to the Word of God. In this letter, that I have listed below, the Roman Catholic church uses many Bible verses to prove that the Protestant churches are not doing as they should if they truly want to be considered Bible believing Christians. In essence their main argument was upon the Seventh Day Sabbath and that all Protestants were keeping a first day Sabbath according to Rome instead of the seventh day Sabbath according to the Scriptures. The Vatican declared and historically proved I might add, that THEY are the ones that changed the Sabbath to Sunday, NOT the Bible! Yet all the Bible embracing Protestants were still attending church on Sunday anyway. So… Rome’s challenge was that if you claim to be Protestants, why is it you are keeping a doctrine which Rome itself can prove with 100% accuracy she invented without a single Bible passage as proof of that change? The Vatican was declaring that since the Bible itself NEVER allowed for the change, and they themselves had proof THEY made the change anyway, and Protestants the world over were doing as the VATICAN suggested over what the Word commanded. They “assumed” the Vatican MUST be above the Bible because “all the world was wondering after this beast” and doing as Rome declared was doctrine. Are not Protestants bound by that which is written? Are they not bound to “Obey God rather than man” according to Acts 5:29? Yet since we have historic proof as well as modern day reality, we see the Protestants aren’t really protesting at all. They ARE doing as Rome suggests over and above that which the Word commands. It appeared the Vatican had a case.

Of course the main issue of this challenge was to try and convert the Protestant into thinking as does the Catholic, and therefore realize they may as well return to mother Rome. They wanted them to realize that the Bible is NOT the “Sole Authority” and therefore not worthy of a trustworthy embrace. The Vatican thought they had “proof” the Protestants believed as they did regarding Sola Scriptura. The Vatican was hoping by this letter to convince the masses that the Catholic church must be the true church because all of the Protestants were doing as she suggested in regards to Sunday keeping.


There is just one refuge left for the Protestants. That is to take their stand squarely and fully upon the “written word only”, “the Bible and the Bible alone”, and thus upon the Sabbath of the Lord. Thus acknowledging no authority but God’s, wearing no sign but His (Eze 20:12,20), obeying his command, and shielded by his power, they shall have the victory over Rome and all her alliances, and stand upon the sea of glass, bearing the harps of God, with which their triumph shall be forever celebrated. Revelation 18, and 15:2-4.

It is not yet too late for Protestants to redeem themselves. Will they do it? Will they stand consistently upon the Protestant profession? Or will they still continue to occupy the “indefensible, self-contradictory, and suicidal” position of professing to be Protestants, yet standing on Catholic ground, receiving Catholic insult, and bearing Catholic condemnation? Will they indeed take the written word only, the Scripture alone, as their sole authority and their sole standard? Or will they still hold the “indefensible, self-contradictory, and suicidal” doctrine and practice of following the authority of the Catholic Church and of wearing the sign of her authority? Will they keep the Sabbath of the Lord, the seventh day, according to Scripture? Or will they keep the Sunday according to the tradition of the Catholic Church?

Dear reader, which will you do?


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

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!

Pope claims Jesus born earlier than thought
 “The ‘mistake’ was made by a sixth century monk known as Dionysius Exiguus or in English Dennis the Small, the 85-year-old pontiff claims in the book ‘Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives’, published on Wednesday.” –As we know, all Popes are liars. And this one, with a documented Nazi background, is not going to be any different. So, the question is, why does the Pope (again) insist on changing the date of Christ’s birth? (Which we already knew was not Dec. 25) It has to do with what’s racing towards him right now like a freight train covered in lights from Heaven. Bible Prophecy! The many dated prophecies of the prophet Daniel not only pinpoints with perfect accuracy the arrival of Jesus Christ. They also confirm by many undeniable dates, certain prophetic events that only Antichrist will do. The Loud Cry that is getting VERY loud now is exposing the Pope and his agenda to many more souls than before and he knows it. So, to change the “time” of Christ’s birth may help to make some less educated think the prophetic facts already pointing to the Vatican as home to Antichrist are somehow all wrong now. But he will of course fail because the elect can’t be deceived. (See Matthew 24:24) And by the way, this changing of “time” is yet another prophetic red flag that states the Pope is an Antichrist. Daniel 7:25 also stated the Popes would “change times and laws” long ago. One of the more obvious changes of a time and a law in one fell swoop is of course the SabbathThe Bible says it’s day 7. In fact, all forefathers of every denomination admit that. But the Popes have always said it’s day one. They have been exposed as the one that does change the TIME and the LAW of God in that one act alone. One last thing. The Pope also stated Jesus was not a prophet in his new book as well. Nuff said? Bottom line is this brothers and sisters. The efforts of God’s people are working! So please keep up the good work! Nov 22 12, 12:11:05

pontifex, (Latin: “bridge builder”, ) plural Pontifices, member of a council of priests in ancient Rome. The college, or collegium, of the pontifices was the most important Roman priesthood, being especially charged with the administration of the jus divinum (i.e., that part of the civil law that regulated the relations of the community  with the deities recognized by the state), together with a general superintendence of the worship of gens and family. Whether the literal meaning of the name indicates any special connection with the sacred bridge over the Tiber (Pons Sublicius) cannot now be determined.
Gens Definition & Meaning – Merriam-Webster
: [noun] a Roman clan embracing the families of the same stock in the male line with the members having a common name and worshipping a common ancestor.

The college existed under the monarchy, when its members were probably three in number; they may be considered as having been legal advisers of the rex in all matters of religion. Under the republic they emerge into prominence under a pontifex maximus, or supreme priest, who took over the king’s duties as chief administrator of religious law. During the republican period the number of pontifices increased until by the time of Julius Caesar there were 16. Included in the collegium were also the rex sacrorum, the flamines, three assistant pontifices (minores), and the Vestal Virgins, who were all chosen by the pontifex maximus. Vacancies in the body of pontifices were originally filled by co-optation; but from the second Punic War onward the pontifex maximus was chosen by a peculiar form of popular election, and in the last age of the republic this was true for all the members. They all held office for life.

The rex sacrorum (“king of the sacrifices”), with his wife, the regina sacrorum (“queen of the sacrifices), was the symbolic head of the Roman state religion. The rex was alternatively called rex sacrificulus or rex sacrificus (“sacrificial king”).
Rex sacrorum was also a member of a priestly college of the pontiffs. Maybe from the very beginning, but definitely by the late Republic era, he was subordinate to pontifex maximus and his powers we nowhere near the powers of the highest pontiff.
A flamen (plural flamens or flamines) was a priest of the ancient Roman religion who was assigned to one of eighteen deities with official cults during the Roman Republic.The most important of these were the three flamines maiores (or “major priests”), who served the important Roman gods Jupiter, Mars, and Quirinus.The remaining twelve were the flamines minores (“lesser priests”).
Pontifex minor  The pontiffs were assisted by pontifical clerks or scribes ( scribae), a position known in the earlier Republican period as a scriba pontificius but by the Augustan period as a pontifex minor. [8] A pontifex minor assisted at the rite ( res divina) for Juno performed each Kalends, the first day of the month.
Vestal Virgins (Latin: Vestales) were the priestesses of the Roman goddess of the hearth, Vesta, in the state religion of ancient Rome. At varying times there were four to six priestesses employed. They were the only full-time clergy (collegia) of a Roman deity which attests to the high regard in which the goddess was held.

priestesses of Vesta, goddess of the hearth. The college of the Vestals was regarded as fundamental to the continuance and security of Rome. These individuals cultivated the sacred fire that was not allowed to go out

The immense authority of the collegium centred in the pontifex maximus, the other pontifices forming his consilium, or advising body. His functions were partly sacrificial or ritualistic, but the real power lay in the administration of the jus divinum, the chief departments of which may briefly be described as follows: (1) the regulation of all expiatory ceremonials needed as the result of pestilence, lightning, etc.; (2) the consecration of all temples and other sacred places and objects dedicated to the gods by the state through its magistrates; (3) the regulation of the calendar both astronomically and in detailed application to the public life of the state; (4) the administration of the law relating to burials and burying places and the worship of the Manes, or dead ancestors; (5) the superintendence of all marriages by confarreatio (i.e., originally, of all legal patrician marriages); and (6) the administration of the law of adoption and of testamentary succession. They had also the care of the state archives and of the lists of magistrates and kept records of their own decisions (commentarii) and the chief events (annales).

The Crown of the Cæsars Passes to the Papacy

Nov 20, 2020Meaning & History Roman family name. The family had Samnite roots so the name probably originated from the Oscan language, likely meaning “fifth” (a cognate of Latin Quintus ).

Meaning, origin and history of the name Pontius

Nov 20, 2020  Alternatively, it could be derived from the name of the ancient province of Pontus in Asia Minor, itself probably from Greek πόντος (pontos) meaning “sea”. A notable bearer of this name was Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor of Judea who appears in the New Testament.spacer
Clearly, it is not by accident that the judge who condemned Christ to death was named for the primordial god of the Sea.
Pontius ( Latin) Origin & history From the gens name Pontii, of Samnite /Sabine origin, from Oscan 𐌐𐌏𐌍𐌕𐌖𐌔‎, 𐌐𐌏𐌌𐌐𐌕𐌖𐌔, which by Oscan sound laws would be the equivalent of the Latin names Quintus, Quinctia, Quinctilia, all from Proto-Italic *kʷenkʷe‎ (“five”). Or, from pons (“bridge”). Proper noun Pontius, second declension

The name Pontius suggests that an ancestor of his came from Samnium in central, southern Italy, and he may have belonged to the family of Gavius Pontius and Pontius Telesinus, two leaders of the Samnites in the third and first centuries respectively, before their full incorporation to the Roman Republic. [27]

Samnite religion worshipped both spirits called numina and gods and goddesses. The Samnites honoured their gods by sacrificing live animals and using votive offerings. Few Samnite gods and goddesses are known, although there’s evidence that they worshiped Vulcan, Diana, Mars and Mefitis (goddess of the foul-smelling gases of the earth).
Samnite soldiers were generally armed with projectiles such as spears and javelins, whilst swords were highly valued in Samnite society, often depicted on pottery, figurines, and Samnite art that shows soldiers receiving swords in ritual ceremonies.


Numina Name Meaning 
The meaning of Numina in english is Divine Will.

Numina – definition of numina by The Free Dictionary
n., pl. -mi•na (-mə nə) divine or supernatural power or presence, esp. as associated with a particular place or object. [1620-30; < Latin nūmen a nod, command, divine power, divinity, akin to nūtāre to nod the head in assent]

In one sense, then, a numen is the authority and providence of the Gods, resulting from the will of the Gods. In another sense it is the power that extends from the Gods through which They enforce Their will. A numen is not a God in itself, nor is it another entity who acts as an agent on behalf of a God.
Numen (plural numina) is a Latin term for “divinity”, “divine presence”, or “divine will.” The Latin authors defined it as follows: [1] Cicero writes of a “divine mind” ( divina mens ), a god “whose numen everything obeys,” and a “divine power” ( vis divina) “which pervades the lives of men.”
So, this is source of NUMEROLOGY. The numbers seen as the will of the gods.
The Holy See (Latin: Sancta Sedes, Ecclesiastical Latin: [ˈsaŋkta ˈsedes]; Italian: Santa Sede [ˈsanta ˈsɛːde]), also called the See of Rome, Petrine See or Apostolic See, is the jurisdiction of the Pope in his role as the bishop of Rome. It includes the apostolic episcopal see of the Diocese of Rome, which has universal ecclesiastical jurisdiction over the Catholic Church and the  sovereign city-state known as the Vatican City.
In the Roman Catholic Church, only the see of the pope bears the right to be addressed symbolically as “holy”.   
Sep 27, 2022 pont m ( plural ponts ) A bridge (construction). Any of various objects or structures resembling a bridge, such as the bridge of violin, a dental prosthesis, a piece of tissue connecting two parts of an organ, etc. A day which falls between a weekend and holiday, which employees will often take off in order to have a long weekend.
Dupont, variously styled as DuPontduPontDu Pont, or du Pont is a French surname meaning “of the bridge”, historically indicating that the holder of the surname resided near a bridge. [1] As of 2008, the name was the fourth most popular surname in Belgium, [2] and as of 2018, it was the 26th most popular in France. [3] People
point | Etymology, origin and meaning of point by etymonline point (n.) c. 1200, pointe, “minute amount, single item in a whole; sharp end of a sword, etc.,” a merger of two words, both ultimately from Latin pungere “to prick, pierce,” from a nasalized form of PIE root *peuk- “to prick.”
History and Etymology for point Noun Middle English, partly from Anglo-French, prick, dot, moment, from Latin punctum, from neuter of punctus, past participle of pungere to prick; partly from Anglo-French pointe sharp end, from Vulgar Latin *puncta, from Latin, feminine of punctus, past participle — more at pungent

This etymology makes no sense.  I believe that the word POINT comes from the word PONT or PONTE. spacer

But from the hour when Constantine, in the language of the Roman law, “Deo jubente,” by the command of God, translated the seat of power to Constantinople, from that moment there never reigned in Rome a temporal prince to whom the Bishops of Rome owed a permanent allegiance. (The Temporal Power of the Vicar of Jesus Christ, Second edition, London: Burns & Lambert, pp. 11, 12)

After ten years of fearful persecution under Emperors Diocletian, Max-imian and Galerius, the relief and joy of Christians knew no bounds. Emperor Galerius had, in 311, eased the plight of the Christians by enacting the Edict of Toleration. However it was Constantine who provided full freedom and civil rights to Christians by enacting the Edict of Milan in 313. Yet one form of persecution was soon to be replaced by another. This emperor, raised in pagan philosophy, deemed it his prerogative to ensure that by force of the state, Christians walk the pathway which he felt proper. Christians had merely exchanged pagan persecution for a Christian form. In time the church itself adopted the philosophy of the emperor and those formerly persecuted became, themselves, the persecutors.

Persecution by Christians was first instituted against pagans. That intolerance which faithful Christians had endured for three centuries was now directed at pagans. This was an omen of times ahead and a serious degradation of true Christian faith which eschews (to avoid habitually especially on moral or practical grounds SHUN)  coercion.

By the manifesto of Constantine and Licinius there had been substituted by the classical idea of the commonwealth the notion of two more or less distinct orders, the one political, the other ecclesiastical. With that of [Emperor] Theodosius [I], the relationship between these orders was finally determined by the complete subordination of the temporal to the spiritual power. (Charles Norris Cochrane, Christianity and Classical Culture, Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1940, p. 328)
Sound familiar?  Tolerance was introduced and enforced and became the tool of intolerance and persecution.

In 375, Emperor Gratian declined to accept the august title of Pontifex Maximus, believing its pagan origins unsuited to a Christian monarch.  The Bishop of Rome, Pope Damasus I, appropriated the title Pontifex Maximus to himself. Thus the religio-political title of the Caesars passed without objection to the Papacy, together with its implied union of church and state.

Following the transfer of the capital of the empire to Constantin-ople, the decline in the power of the empire well suited the ultimate destiny of the Papacy. That decline was gradual but it is generally agreed by historians that—

When the insignificant Romulus Augustulus was deposed (476), there was no longer even a titular emperor. (Paul Hutchinson & Winnifred E. Garrison, 20 Centuries of Christianity: A Concise History. First edition, p. 93, 1959, Harcourt, Brace & World Inc., New York)

Now the road for escalating Papal political power was cleared of impediment. With the acceptance of the title of Universal Bishop, when offered sixty-two years later by Justinian, the emperor of the Eastern Roman Empire, the course of Europe under Roman Catholic dominance was set.

Robert Neville, in his book, The World of the Vatican, has truly asserted, “In certain respects the Pope himself appears to be the lineal descendent of the Caesars” (Harper and Row, New York, page 10). Neville points out that terms such as Pontifex Maximus, the Roman Church, and Diocese stem from the emperors.

Emperor of the Eastern Roman Empire, Justinian officially declared the Bishop of Rome as the Universal Pontiff in 533.

It [the Papacy] is a political creation, and as imposing as a World-Empire, because of the continuation of the Roman Empire. The Pope, who calls himself “King” and “Pontifex Maximus” is Caesar’s successor. (New York, Putnam, 1901, second edition, page 270).

The same historian concluded that

The Roman Church in its way privily pushed itself into the place of the Roman World-Empire, of which it is the actual continuation. (Ibid.)

The mighty Catholic Church was little more than the Roman Empire baptised. Rome was transformed as well as converted. The very capital of the old Empire became the capital of the Christian Empire. The office of the Pontifex Maximus was continued in that of the Pope. . . . Even the Roman language has remained the official language of the Roman Catholic Church down through the ages. (New York: Burt Franklin, 1959 pp 148, 149).

While most states of the Holy Roman Empire were Germanic, the Empire extended down into the Italian peninsula. The HRE effectively spread outside of its own primary territory through Germanic princes inheriting other crowns. For example, the Crown of Great Britain went to the Holy Roman Empire House of Orange and then to the Holy Roman Empire House of Hanover under the name of “Windsor,” a House that still rules Britain to this day.


One World Religion complex in UAE will open in 2022

By Elizabeth Prata


I saw an article with an interesting topic on Facebook and I looked it up to see if it was real. It is real. Here is the interesting news. This article is from The Vatican, and since it involves the papacy, I take it to be credible, since they are reporting on themselves. The religion site is being built in United Arab Emirates, known as UAE.

Abrahamic Family House in Abu Dhabi to open in 2022

"The Abrahamic Family House, which encloses a synagogue, a church and a mosque in a single complex, and which is scheduled to be inaugurated in 2022, is 20 percent complete, the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity (HCHF) said in a statement on Tuesday. ... Besides the 3 places of worship, the site includes a cultural center that aims to encourage people to exemplify human fraternity and solidarity within a community that cherishes the values of mutual respect and peaceful coexistence, while the unique character of each faith is preserved."

Each faith, meaning Judaism, Christianity (The Roman Catholic version of false Christianity) and Islam. Note that it is illegal for any building in the UAE to display a cross, therefore the church on this site will be devoid of one. It is illegal in UAE to convert from Islam to any other religion, so it remains to be seen how much ‘tolerance’ will be involved.

If you go to the website for this project, which The Vatican reports is 20% finished and will open within a year, you see a photo of how it will look and the architecture is quite beautiful.

The left is the Mosque, the middle is the Church, the right is the Synagogue. This is an artist’s rendering. Source

The website for the project is called For Human Fraternity.

Other websites are calling it the center for One World Faith. The Times of Israel gives their take on the project, with a photo of the progress in construction. It’s from this past June 2021. This Chinese missionary site has another take on the project.

Interesting. I had not know about these ‘Abraham Accords’ which was the covenant that forms the basis for the building project, with other projects to come. The accords marked the first public normalization of relations between an Arab country and Israel since that of Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994, says Wikipedia. The progress of this building site is pretty amazing, because the Accords were only signed in September 2020, one year ago.

Let’s turn to past history and future prophecy for a moment

There is a difficult prophetic passage in Revelation, some say the most difficult. Revelation 17:9-11 says-

“Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. 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. The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.” (Revelation 17:9-11)

Oh, boy, where do you start? OK, in the first phrase, it says ‘here is wisdom.’ To me, that means that the interpretation won’t be easy or obvious. It will take deeper study, but that it will be revealed to the one who seeks wisdom. James 1:5 makes that promise.

Next, “Mountains”. In biblical symbolism, mountains usually represent kingdoms or strong, powerful governments. When it says THE mountain, like in Isaiah 2:2-4, it means Jesus’ government. “It shall come to pass in the last days that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains.”

The seven” past kingdoms (empires) are generally accepted to be Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Greece, Media-Persia and Rome past and/or Rome to come, or perhaps someone else. “The eighthseems to be the antichrist which is part of the seventh.

Remember that in Daniel’s interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s statue of the kingdoms (Daniel 2:31-35), it was gold at the head, silver at the chest and arms, bronze torso and thighs, legs of iron and feet of a mixture of clay and iron. A side note, you notice two things of the statue’s metals: as they progress from head to toe, the metals become less expensive. Gold mentioned at the head is the most precious metal, iron the least. Clay is worth nothing at all. But they also become stronger. Gold is the softest metal but iron is strongest.

The legs of iron are generally thought to be the split Roman empire. The Romans split their empire in 330AD when they allowed Constantinople (now Istanbul- it’s in Turkey) to become a sister capital, and the kingdom was split east and west. (The feet of iron and clay are thought to the coming Tribulation kingdom.) So let’s look at Constantinople.

The site of the interfaith center is in Abu Dhabi in the UAE (at bottom right at the pointy horn) and Istanbul (previously Constantinople) is at very top left. This entire region is in high focus during the end of the last days.

Now known as Istanbul, it is located in Turkey and is its largest city. Wikipedia says Istanbul has served as the capital of the Roman Empire (330–395), the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire (395–1204 and 1261–1453), the Latin Empire (1204–1261), and the Ottoman Empire (1453–1922). That’s a lot of empires! It was also chosen as a joint European Capital of Culture for 2010-2011, and as such organized cultural events with a strong European dimension. Yet…Istanbul is not European, and despite its long desire to align with the west, that desire has been thwarted. Turkey is considered a “candidate country” but is not absorbed into the European Union.

Though Turkey was one of the first countries to become a member of the Council of Europe in 1949, a predecessor to the EU, and is now an associate member of the EU, it has been denied full membership ever since its application in 1987. It seems that the two legs of the Roman empire are still split, though it is part of the body of historically precedent empires and loosely connected to the west, is not the west.

The Turks figure into end time prophecy as the nation who aligns finally with the east. Turkey comes together with Armenia, Russia, Iran, and northern Africa and others to attack Israel. Their final status as an Israel-hater is certain. The journey has been a tumultuous one ever since Paul’s missionary days into Asia Minor, which Turkey is still known as (also Anatolia). The question is, how does Turkey get from seeking to align with the west, to warring against them?

Ezekiel 38:6 says that Gomer and the house of beth-Togarmah join the Gog-Magog attack. I interpret Gomer to be Turkey and beth-Togarmah as Armenia. No one is quite positive though. We do know the region these days is Muslim. You can research the historical/biblical names here, and directly from the Bible here and here.

Now to the original verse in Revelation. The verse says that there were/are 7 kingdoms. Some say the 7th both are Rome, and some say that the 7th could be the Ottoman Empire. Or a mixture of the two, Roman Empire and Muslim empire, combined or mixed. Note the last part of the Revelation verse, ‘the beast is the eighth AND is of the seven’ could be satisfied by a ruler from the eastern leg of the statue that was part of Roman empire but not Rome.

The Ottomans existed as an empire for 500 years, disappearing in 1922 with the cessation of the office of Caliph (Ruler of all Muslims).

John MacArthur said in his sermon "The Grim Reality of the Last Days", "Now somebody might say, “Well, when you think about the future and what’s going to happen in the world, don’t we have a revived Roman Empire? Doesn’t that mean the west? You remember that the image in Daniel 2 of the final world empire had two legs and the Roman Empire had the west and the east? You know, of course, if you know history that the western part of the Roman Empire basically dissolved and the east survived for a thousand years or more so that at the time of the New Testament, sixty percent of the Roman Empire was land that is now under Muslim least 60 percent. The vast majority of the Roman Empire in New Testament times is today under Muslim control and Islam is moving across the west rapidly in Europe, isn’t it? When you have a picture in Ezekiel 38, you have a picture of the Antichrist, Gog and you have the listing of eight nations, that will be a coalition for the Antichrist. All eight of those are Muslim nations, all eight of them. And they ring the Mediterranean to Libya. In Revelation 17:9 to 11 it says there were six kingdoms and then a seventh and finally an eighth. What is the seventh? Well there’s been a discussion about that, it well could be the Ottoman Turk Empire which lasted five hundred years and didn’t really fall until the modern era. The Turkish Empire was the last Caliphate which ended in 1923 and they’re waiting for the restoration when the Mahdi comes."

What I’m saying is, the Bible shows us that the Ottoman Empire, wherever its central hub of activity or capital may be located in future, will likely be a last days player. This one World religion Abrahamic site in Abu Dhabi is interesting for that reason.

That the Ottomans could be the 7th kingdom mentioned in the Revelation verse is worth pondering, as we watch activity in the Middle East with biblical interest, and keep praying for its peoples, any of them or all of them, to come to Christ.
