Characteristic of the AntiChrist
Antichrist will destroy three complete nations out of the original ten of fallen Rome.
- Daniel 7:24, “And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.”
Daniel identifies immediately that the horns in this vision actually refer to kings. For further confirmation, later in Daniel 8:20 we see the two horns on the ram Daniel sees in vision are in fact the two kings of Media and Persia. When Pagan Rome fell in 476AD it resulted in the formation of TEN SEPARATE KINGDOMS. Three of these ten kingdoms rejected the idea of a “universal / Catholic faith” that was both religious as well as political so as to better control the people of the fallen nation of Rome. They were annihilated for protesting against such an evil entity. 1. Heruli nation was annihilated in 493AD. 2. Vandals in 534AD. 3. Ostrogoths in 538AD were the final of the three kings that would be subdued just as Daniel prophesied. With the fall of the Ostrogoths in the year 538AD the political entity we today refer to as the “Roman Catholic institution,” began it’s official reign as the last part of this fourth beast mentioned in the prophecy of Daniel.
THE TEN HORNS that came to be after Rome fell:
- The Alamannis which is now called Germany
- The Visigoths which is now called Spain
- The Franks which is now called France
- The Sueves which is now called Portugal
- The Burgundians which is now called Switzerland
- The Anglo Saxons which is now called England
- The Lombards which is now called Italy
- The Ostrogoths
- The Vandal
- The Herulis
Historic records reveal…
|“The three divisions which were plucked up where the Heruli in 493 the vandals and 534 and the Ostrogoths in 538. Justinian, the emperor, who we see was at Constantinople, working through the general Belisarius, was the power that overthrough the three kingdoms represented by the three horns, and the reason for their overthrow with their adherence to Arianism in opposition to the orthodox Catholic faith.” – the book of Daniel, page 109
“Vigilius…ascended the papal chair (538 A.D.) under the military protection of Belisarius.” History of the Christian Church, Vol. 3, p. 327
Catholic emperors of the eastern empire found ways to help the pope by eliminating three of the Arian tribes. (These “Arian type” nations would not agree with the popes plans) The Catholic emperor Zeno (474-491) arranged a treaty with the Ostrogoths in 487 which resulted in the eradication of the kingdom of the Arian Heruls in 492. And the catholic emperor Justinian (527-565) exterminated the Arian Vandals in 534 and signifcally broke the power of the Arian Ostrogoths in 538. Thus were Daniels three horns – The Heruls, the Vandals, and the Ostrogoths – “plucked up by the roots.“ -C. Mervyn Maxwell, God Cares Vol. 1, p. 129
The Lord shows Daniel many years prior that after the fall of the pagan kindgom of Rome, or the fourth Global kindgom, would arise another power that would seek to regain this Global kingdom for its own evil purposes. Daniel saw that when pagan Rome fell it would split into ten separate kindgoms. He even saw that three of the nations that were part of that split, wouldn’t go along with new plans to regain this global kingdom. What type of kingdom was this that was so evil that three nations were willing to die to prevent it’s rise? We will discuss this in detail later. And just as Daniel was shown by the Lord, it all happened with perfect timing. History records perfectly every step of Rome in this regard. This is what’s so amazing about studying prophecy in the last days. We have HISTORY to look back on! We can actually match historic events with prophetic utterances in the Word of the Christian God.
The penetration of the religion of Babylon became so general and well known that Rome was called the “New Babylon.” -Faith of our fathers 1917 ed. Cardinal Gibbons, p. 106
“Confiding then in the power of Christianity to resist the infection of evil, and to transmute the instruments and appendages of demon worship to an evangelical use… the rulers of the church from early times were prepared should occasion arise, to adopt, or imitate, or sanction the existing rites and customs of the (Pagan) populace.” -Development of Christian Doctrine, Cardinal Newman. p. 372
Cardinal Newman lists many examples of things of “pagan origin” which the papacy brought into the church “in order to recommend the new religion to the heathen: He stated, “in order to recommend the new religion to the heathen:” “The use of temples, and these dedicated to particular saints, and ornamented on occasions with branches of trees; incense, lamps, and candles; holy water; asylums [hermitages, monasteries and convents]; [pagan] holy-days, processions, sacerdotal vestments, the tonsure, the ring in marriage, turning to the East, images, . . . and the Kyrie Eleison.”–Cardinal J. H. Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine, 1920 edition, p.373 [Roman Catholic].
“The [Catholic] Church took the pagan philosophy and made it the buckler of faith against the heathen. She took the pagan Roman Pantheon, temple of all the gods, and made it sacred to all the martyrs; so it stands to this day. She took the pagan Sunday and made it the Christian Sunday. She took the pagan Easter and made it the feast we celebrate during this season . . . The Sun was a foremost god with heathendom . . . The sun has worshipers at this hour in Persia and other lands . . . Hence the Church would seem to say, ‘Keep that old pagan name [Sunday]. It shall remain consecrated, sanctified.’ And thus the pagan Sunday, dedicated to Balder, became the Christian Sunday, sacred to Jesus”–William L. Gildea, “Paschale Gaudium,” in The Catholic World, 58, March, 1894, p. 809 [A Roman Catholic weekly].
“The mighty Catholic Church was little more then the Roman Empire baptized.”– A. C, Flick, The Rise of the Mediaeval Church, 1909 edition, p. 148.
From ancient Babylon came the cult of the virgin mother-goddess, who was worshiped as the highest of gods–see S. H. Langdon, Semitic Mythology, 1931 edition.
This worship was taken over as Mary-worship by Rome. Heathen sun-worship on Sunday was likewise adopted by the Roman apostasy.
“In order to attach to Christianity great attraction in the eyes of the nobility, the priests adopted the outer garments and adornments which were used in pagan cults.” -Life of Constantine, Eusabius, cited in Altai-Nimalaya, p. 94
“The Church did everything it could to stamp out such ‘pagan’ rites, but had to capitualet and allow the rites to continue with only the name of the local diety changed to some Christian saint’s name.” -Religious Tradition and Myth. Dr. Edwin Goodenough, Professor of Religion, Harvard University. p. 56, 57
“From the foregoing, which treats merely of the more important solar festivals, it is clear that these products of paganism are as much in force at present … as they ever were, and that Christianity countenances, and in many cases has actually adopted and practiced, pagan rites whose heathen significance is merely lost sight of because attention is not called tot the source whence these rites have sprung. So heavy was this infiltration that Sir Samuel Dill exclaims: “Christianity is only a sect of the Mithraists.” -Roman Society from Nero to Marcus Aurelius, p. VII
Actually, it would befar more accurate if he said, “Catholicism is only a sect of the Mithraists.” The true Remnant Christians of today would never do such things as this. As Revelation 14:4 puts it, the true Church of Christ is not defiled by these women (churches)
“We know that Mithraism was a state religion of Rome at the time that the Christian church was established there. Evidently tenants of Mithraism such as Sunday worship and eating the wafer in the mass were adopted into Christianity at that time” -Jim Arrabito “666 & the Mark”
In Stanley’s History, page 40: “The popes filled the place of the vacant emperors at Rome, inheriting their power, their prestige, and their titles from PAGANISM.”
“In short, sun worship, symbolically speaking, lies at the very heart of the great festivals which the Christian Church celebrates today, and these relics of heathen religion have, through the medium of their sacred rites, curiously enough blended with practices and beliefs utterly antagonistic to the spirit which prompted them.” -Sun Lore of All Ages, Olcott, p. 248
“Yet the cross itself is the oldest of phallic emblems, and the lozenge-shaped windows of cathedrals are proof that the yonic symbols have survived the destructions of the pagan Mysteries. The very structure of the church itself is permeated with phallicism. (sexual symbolism) Remove from the Christian Church all emblems of Priapic origin and nothing is left…” -The secret teaching of all ages by Manley P. Hall
“When the zealots of the primitave Christian Church sought to Christianize paganism, the pagan initiates retorted with a powerful effort to paganize Christianity. The Christians failed but the pagans succeeded. With the decline of paganism the initiated pagan hierophants transferred their base of operations to the new vehicle of primitive Christianity, adopting the symbols of the new cult to conceal those eternal verities which are ever the priceless possession of the wise.” -The secret teachings of all ages, Manley P. Hall p. CLXXXV
The Christians failed because Christ would have no agreement with such error. He would never sanction mixing truth with error. Deuteronomy 12:29-32 confirms that perfectly!
“…The world, cloaked with a form of righteousness, walked into the church. Now the work of corruption rapidly progressed. Paganism, while appearing to be vanquished, became the conqueror. Her spirit controlled the church. Her doctrines, ceremonies, and superstitions were incorporated into the faith and worship of the professed followers of Christ.” Ellen G.White, -The Great Controversy, p. 50
“The belief in miracle-working objects, talismans, amulets, and formulas was dear to Christianity, and they were received from pagan antiquity . . . The vestments of the clergy and the papal title of ‘pontifex maximus’ were legacies from pagan Rome. The [Catholic] Church found that rural converts still revered certain springs, wells, trees, and stones; she thought it wiser to bless these to Christian use then to break too sharply the customs of sentiment . . . Pagan festivals dear to the people, reappeared as Christian feasts, and pagan rites were transformed into Christian liturgy . . . The Christian calendar of saints replaced the Roman ‘fasti’ [gods]; ancient divinities dear to the people were allowed to revive under the names of ‘Christian saints‘ . . . Gradually the tenderest features of Astarte, Cybele, Artemis, Diana, and Isis were gathered together in the worship of Mary“–Wil Durant, The Age of Faith, 1950, pp. 745-746.
Langdon tells us that Mary worship came from ancient Babylon where the virgin mother-goddess was worshiped under the name “Ishtar.” Elsewhere in the Near East, the mother-goddess was called “Astarte, Ashtoreth, Persephone, Artemis, [Diana] of Ephesus, Venus, and Isis.” This goddess, considered to be greater than any god, was called by these heathen the “virgin mother, merciful mother, Queen of Heaven, and my lady” [which is what “Madonna” means in Italian]. Langdon says she was often sculptured in mother-and-infant images, or as a “mater dolorom” [sorrowful mother] interceding for men with a wrathful god. And thus ancient paganism was brought into the churches and lives of Christians.–see S.H. Langdon, Semitic Mythology, 1931 edition, pp. 12-34, 108-111, 341-344.
Laing mentions several other corruptions by which the mother-goddess was worshiped by heathens, that Rome adopted into Christianity: holy water, votive offerings, elevation of sacred objects [lifting of the host], the priest’s bells, the decking of images, processions, festivals, prayers for the dead, the worship of relics and the statues of saints.–see Gordon J. Laing, Survivals of Roman Religion, 1931 edition, pp. 92-95, 123-131,238-241.
Two dominant elements brought into Christianity from paganism by Rome were Sun worship symbols and the religious practices of ancient Babylon] “The solar theology of the Chaldaeans [Babylonians], had decisive effect . . . [upon the] final form reached by the religion of the pagan Semites, and following them, by that of the Romans when [the Roman emperor] Aurelian, the conqueror of Palmyra, had raised ‘Sol Invictus’ [the invincible sun-god] to the rank of supreme divinity in the Empire”–The Cambridge Ancient History, vol. 11, pp. 643, 646-647. From Palmyra he transferred to the new sanctuary the images of Helios [the sun-god] and Bel, the malaise patron god of Babylon–see Cumont, The Oriental Religions In Roman Paganism, 1911 edition, pp. 114-115, 124.
“The removal of the capital of the Empire from Rome to Constantinople in 330, left the Western Church, practically free from imperial power, to develop its own form of organization. The Bishop of Rome, in the seat of the Caesars, was now the greatest man in the West, and was soon [when the barbarians over-ran the empire] forced to become the political as well as the spiritual head.”–A.C. Flick, The Rise of the Mediaval Church p. 168.
“Whatever Roman elements the barbarians and Aryans left . . . [came] under the protection of the Bishop of Rome, who was the chief person there after the Emperor’s disappearance . . . The Roman Church in this way privily pushed itself into the place of the Roman World-Empire, of which it is the actual continuation; the empire has not perished, but has only undergone a transformation . . . It [the Catholic Church] is a political creation, and as imposing as a World-Empire, because [it is a continuation of] the Roman Empire. The Pope, who calls himself ‘King’ and ‘Pontifex Maximus’ [the title of the Roman Emperor in the time of Christ], is Caesar’s successor.”–Adolf Harnack, What is Christianity? 1963, pp. 269-270.
“Long ages ago, when Rome through the neglect of the Western emperors was left to the mercy of the barbarous hordes, the Romans turned to one figure for aid and protection, and asked him to rule them; and thus, . . . commenced the temporal sovereignty of the popes. And meekly stepping to the throne of Caesar, the vicar of Christ took up the scepter to which the emperors and kings of Europe were to bow in reverence through so many ages.”–American Catholic Quarterly Review, April, 1911.
[Speaking of the time, about 500 A.D., when the Roman Empire was crumbling to pieces:] “No, the [Catholic] Church will not descend into the tomb. It will survive the Empire . . . At length a second empire will arise, and of this empire the Pope will be the master–more then this, he will be the master of Europe. He will dictate his orders to kings who will obey them”–Andrea Lagarde, The Latin Church in the Middle Ages, 1915, p. vi.
“From the foregoing, which treats merely of the more important solar festivles, it is clear that these products of paganism are as much in force at present… as they ever were, and that Christianity countenances, and in many cases has actually adopted and practiced, pagan rites whose heathen significance is merely lost sight of because attention is not called to the source whence those rites have spring. So heavy was this infiltration that Sir Samuel Dill exclaims: “Christianity is only a sect of the Mithraists.” -Roman Society from Nero to Marcus Aurelius. P. vii
Antichrist is to be a blasphemous power
- Revelation 13:1, “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.”
BLASPHEMY BIBLICALLY DEFINED..
- John 10:33, “The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.”
Of course these are but a few quick quotes of the popes proving they believe they are God on earth. I have dozens more on my “words of a beast” page. What amazes me is, if some small cult leader was to proclaim himself God on earth, the authorities would snatch him up in a heartbeat. Yet the popes of Rome can proclaim this lie for almost 2000 years and no one seems to mind. ( See this 4 minute video on this topic )
By the way, claiming to be God on earth is only one biblical definition of blasphemy. Another is claiming to have the power to “forgive men sins.” Mark 2:7, states, “Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?” Is it possible the Roman Catholic Vatican does this as well? Can prophecy be that accurate and exposing of this evil entity? Yes it can! The “confessional” of the Roman Catholic Church is indeed yet another identifiable feature exposing the Vatican as Antichrist’s dwelling. They openly declare a MAN dressed as a priest has the power to FORGIVE SINS of men!
|“This judicial authority will even include the power to forgive sin.” [The Catholic Encyclopaedia Vol 12, -article “Pope” pg 265]
“And God himself is obliged to abide by the judgment of his priest and either not to pardon or to pardon, according as they refuse to give absolution, provided the penitent is capable of it.” -Liguori, «Duties and Dignities of the Priest», p.27
Antichrist will mock Christ so as to confuse the unlearned.
Many people the world over will be drafted into total acceptance of the Antichrist theology by sheer ignorance. This is becoming an easy task for Rome in fact. They have already gotten their church goers to refuse the bible. All throughout it’s history it has shunned and even declared the Bible a dangerous book. Most Catholics that I have met before and after leaving this church have stated they never read a bible. In 1229ad the Catholic church even put the Bible on the index of forbidden books as we learned earlier.
Rome still has a problem with the Word to this day. Walk into any Catholic church and you will find what they call a “misslette” to be used for the mass. It’s a small booklet filled with prayers, bits and pieces of out of context bible passages, and songs to be used in the Catholic mass. I recall as a youth how some people would get strange looks if they would enter the church with a bible.
By the way, it’s not just Roman Catholicism that has this problem now. On my “Bogus Bibles” page in the warnings section of the website I share proof that the Vatican has been instrumental in re-writing the modern day bibles to fit their dogma. Start at the top of that page and work your way down. You will see a pattern as to why certain verses have been re-written or completely removed from most bibles today. I share the facts on two of the most popular bibles on that page. The NIV and the NASB. If you never heard of this before, be prepared for a shock.
If you don’t have a trusted King James bible, you may miss some of the ways the Antichrist mocks the Lord to try and pull people into their camp. So.. how does Antichrist mock the Lord? There are actually hundreds of ways, but to give you a quick idea, I have a few I can share with you here.
- Prophecy stated Antichrist will rise out of the water. Jesus arose out of water at his baptism.
Jesus reigned on earth for 3.5 years in His ministry. The Vatican killed over 500 million people and reigned on earth for 1260 years. 1260 is actually 3.5 prophetic years as we learned earlier.
Jesus was mortally wounded at His crucifiction. The Vatican was mortally wounded in 1798
Jesus resurrected. The Vatican resurrected in 1929
Both Christ and the beast have many horns. The Lamb of God has 7 horns in Revelation 5:6. The Beast has 10 in Revelation 13:1
Both Jesus and the beast seek and receive worship
Both Jesus and the beast have a global and universal agenda. Jesus for the good of all for eternity. The beast for the death of all for eternity.
Jesus was born of a virgin. Antichrist of old stated Tammuz was born of a virgin.
Both Jesus and the Vatican claim a day or rest and worship. Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath, the Vatican admits to inventing Sunday as their day as we will get into much more detail later.
I could actually go on and on with literally hundreds of proofs that show the Vatican will take what the Bible says, and then twist it to fit a Pagan, or Babylonian doctrine. But I feel this next set of facts should suffice. I share this because it is quite shocking and eye opening at the same time. It has to do with the Roman Catholic mixed god of Christmas. The facts I am about to share is but a very small portion of facts from my Christmas page on the website in the warnings section of the menu. There is so much evidence on that page that shows every aspect of Christianity is mixed with Paganism and then used to mock the Lord Jesus. But this set of facts I am about to share is what I consider to be the best example.

One more thing that bothers me about this is how Antichrist has convinced most parents it’s ok to teach your children to lie. Like many of us, when I was a child, I was told that Santa Claus was “All Powerful” because he makes millions of toys and delivers them in one night. He defies the laws of nature by flying and jumping down narrow chimneys. With Santa all things are possible. He is by definition, Omnipotent. Which by definition means… “…having unlimited power or authority; all powerful-the Omnipotent God.” (-Webster’s New World Dictionary)
I was told that Good Ol’ Saint Nick knows all things (At least he knows when every boy and girl is bad or good or how they behave throughout the year). He is by definition, Omniscient. Which by definition means… “having infinite knowledge; knowing all things-the Omniscient God.” Webster’s New World Dictionary
Think about that for a moment. Parents all over the world have been telling bold face lies to their children since birth about a fat man in a red suit that comes down a chimney to place gifts underneath the tree. Now guess what happens when the child comes of age. The child realizes that mommy and daddy have been lying to him the whole time! He now figures lying is ok, because mommy and daddy do it. And not only that, but this child realizes that IT WORKED!!! He actually realizes that his parents lied to him and HE BELIEVED THEM! So now he has concrete evidence that lying is a resourceful tool that he can use to his advantage. And his own parents taught him IT’S OK TO DO SO!
|The Library of Universal Knowledge says:–
“Nicholas Saint (St. Claus), a highly popular saint of the Roman Catholic Church, and reverenced with still greater devotion by the Russian Church, which regards him as a special patron, was one of the early bishops of Mysia, in Lysia. The precise date of his episcopate is a subject of much controversy. Of his personal history hardly anything is certainly known, and the great popularity of the devotion to him wrought through his intercession. He is regarded in Catholic countries as a special patron of the young, and particularly of scholars. On the vigil of his feast, which is held on December 6, (“St.Nicks” day) a person in the appearance and costume of a bishop assembles the children of a family or a school and distributes among them, to the good, gilt nuts, sweetmeats, and other little presents as the rewards of good conduct; to the naughty ones, the redoubtable punishment klanbauf. The supposed relics of St. Nicholas were conveyed from the East to Bari, in the kingdom of Naples, toward the close of the eleventh century.” Thus the fable is a part of the old relic-worshiping traditions of a corrupt church. The nearness of his feast, in December, to the Christmas festival, led to associating the saint and the present-giving idea with the feast of December 25. We must admit, in the light of the Bible, that it is very foolish and wrong to teach little children the tales of Santa Claus. “Little children, keep yourselves from idols.”
The Lord demands more of us than of them, because we have come into existence in the age of wonderful research and discovery, “when knowledge should increase” as Daniel 12:4 said was inevitable. The Bible has been in our mothers tongue several centuries now. In the light of this situation, we would certainly deserve severe criticism for our ignorance if we should continue to honor old traditions or relic worship. Still.. most people do to this day in the name of Christianity. In essence, they MOCK the Lord just as Antichrist has taught them to do. Is this any different than the “Certain Damsel” of Acts chapter 16. No it’s not. Sadly, most are completely unaware they are doing wrong. And praise the Lord we have a merciful God, for it is written that He actually winks at our times of ignorance. (See Acts 17:30)
Many upright Christians in the past have taken part in the old festival to some extent, and such we will not criticize, because they did it in ignorance. But in this enlightened age it is indeed high time to inquire: “What concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? and what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?” 2 Cor. 6:15,16. We as Christians need to take a stand and stop this open mockery of our Lord Jesus Christ. If the Vatican wants to continue on, let them. But as for me and my house, I will serve the Lord!
Still many Christians, not only Catholics, but also Protestants, continue year by year at the Christmas festival to honor the old idol relics under a Christian garb. This is indeed very unfortunate, and it is going so far that entrance fees are demanded in many Protestant churches for their Christmas plays. O, what a dishonor to our dear Saviour, who has pointed out a distinct line between the holy and the profane!
Antichrist declares Jesus has not come in the flesh
- 1 John 4:3, “And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”
The Word is plain here. If a church proclaims that Jesus Christ did NOT come in the flesh, then that church is of Antichrist. Many Catholics to this day fight me on this tooth and nail. They proclaim their church DOES say that Jesus came in the flesh. But does this church really say Jesus came in the flesh? Notice an actual excerpt from the Roman Catholic Catechism book.
|491. “Through the centuries the Church has become ever more aware that Mary, ‘full of grace’ through God,[Lk 1:28 .] was redeemed from the moment of her conception. That is what the dogma of the Immaculate Conception confesses, as Pope Pius IX proclaimed in 1854: The most Blessed Virgin Mary was, from the first moment of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of JESUS Christ, Saviour of the human race, preserved immune from all stain of ORIGINAL SIN.[Pius IX, Ineffabilis Deus (1854): DS 2803
You can also verify this in the online version of the Catechism book at the Vatican website in the “Original Sin” section. Direct link = http://www.vatican.va/archive/catechism/p1s2c1p7.htm#III
Besides the fact they lie about Mary and her state of salvation, to declare that Jesus Christ came to this world in a flesh OTHER THAN the flesh the catholic church teaches we bear, is to preach that Jesus did NOT come in the flesh! They say He came in a flesh “not stained” with the stain we supposedly bear! To say Jesus did NOT have in His flesh what “we” have in ours, is to say He did NOT come in our flesh. Therefore, He can not possibly be the same Jesus John spoke of in 1John 4:3 The Roman Catholic Jesus is NOT the Jesus of the Bible. The Jesus of Rome cheated and prevented His flesh from being stained with what Rome calls “original sin.” But what is the definition of original sin according to Rome?
|Q. What is Original Sin?
A. Original Sin is the sin we inherit from Adam, the Father of the Human Race.
-The Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine. p. 41
According to Roman Dogma, Original Sin is a sin we ALL inherit from Adam. Problem with that is the Bible proves it to be a bold faced lie. For it is written…
- Ezekiel 18:20, “The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.”
The Word of God plainly states there is no such thing as “Original Sin.” What we are born with is the SINFUL NATURE. We choose to sin when we come to the age of accountability. Jesus was also born with the sinful nature. Difference was, He chose NOT to sin.
Antichrist is to use craftiness and deceit in a major way.
- Daniel 8:23,25 “And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.”
AV – deceit 20, deceitful 8, deceitfully 3, false 2, guile 2, feigned 1, craft 1, subtilty 1, treachery 1; 39
1) deceit, treachery
The pope’s of Rome have all along used craftiness and deceit to gain the upper hand. For example, the “New World Order” is now something that can be well verified first in Rome. Do an online search and notice all the articles online that pertain to this topic that were first “suggested” by Rome and then “agreed to” by major Governments. My February 1, 2004 Truth Provided Radio broadcast is all about this fact. Rome’s major prophetic desire is in fact the “One world court and one world church” system combined. The one world court started in 1999 and was ratified in the year 2000. This Roman International court carries the solar wheel logo of the Vatican itself on it’s website as well as it’s letterhead. The Pope is in fact it’s globally accepted elected leader. The one world church began on June 26, 2000. In fact, the papers were signed to bring to life the United Religions Initiative in the same hotel room, and same date of June 26, as back in 1948 when they created the United Nations. Truth is, the pope was considered the elected leader of this church a year in advance, and when it came to be in 2000, he stepped in victorious.
|CHURCHES AGREE THAT POPE HAS OVERALL AUTHORITY
THE Pope was recognized as the overall authority in the Christian world by an Anglican and Roman Catholic commission yesterday which described him as a “gift to be received by all the Churches”. …if a new united Christian Church was created it would be the ‘Bishop of Rome who would exercise a universal primacy. The 43-page document, The Gift of Authority, has been produced by the 18-member Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission, after five years of debate. The commission concluded that the Bishop of Rome had a “specific ministry concerning the discernment of truth” and accepted that only the Pope had the moral authority to unite the various Christian denominations. Mark Birchall, a member of the Church of England Evangelical council, said: “It speaks as if the Bishop of Rome has always been on the side of the angels while it is well known that for several centuries past the Bishop of Rome was certainly not.” The Rt Rev Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, Bishop of Arundel and Brighton and the other co-chairman, added: “The primacy of the Pope is a gift to be shared.” -Electronic Telegraph-UK News May 13, 1999 Oliver Poole
This evil entity in Rome has hood-winked all the Governments and churches of the Planet into thinking it’s a good thing to do as she desires. Prophecy declared they would create these evil governing entities, for “peace and safety.” When in fact it is opposite of their desires all along. Rome is actually setting everyone on Earth up for a major fall. Don’t be fooled, they are not concerned with your faith, nor are they concerned with your walk. They are more concerned with how easy you will allow them to control you. This is done simply because Satan needs this done. Why? He needs to get the entire world “marked” as his subjects so as to defeat Christ. One problem is, the elect cannot be deceived. They will know what it is he is trying to do, and we will proclaim it from the rooftops!
The Vatican has been shouting for years that all religions must come together as one. The Word of God is plain, it states that we cannot join together with those that do not embrace Truth…
- Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
- 2 Corinthians 6:14,17 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
Yet Rome openly declares you need to join with her for world peace. And to further prove she cares not for Jesus or the Gospel itself, I have a page on my website entitled, “Rome says Jesus not Needed” in the Catholicism exposed section of the menu. On this page I share numerous quotes from the Vatican as well as Protestant leaders where they boldly proclaim Jesus is NOT needed to gain Heaven.
When the Vatican or it’s representatives are speaking to local churches, they will most assuredly say you need Jesus to gain Heaven. But when they speak to the world at large via the media, they speak another message. They say such things as this…
|Cardinal Francis Arinze, who’s considered a possible successor to Pope John Paul II, has denied Jesus is the only way to heaven. -(Dallas Morning News, 3/20/99)
THE Pope …said at an audience that “all of the just on Earth, including those who ignore Christ and his Church” were “called upon to build the kingdom of God“. -Electronic Telegraph (Posted on www.telegraph.co.uk) ISSUE 2023 Friday 8 December 2000
VATICAN CITY (CNS) — In their relations with Jews, Christians …must recognize that Jews do not have to convert in order to be saved, a top Vatican official said. CNS 11-7-2002
The Vatican is the ultimate political entity on earth. What you see them doing here, is no different than what the Roman taught politicians have been doing all along. It’s the same method a campaigning official uses to gather votes for office. For example. When William Jefferson Clinton was running for the Governor’s office in Arkansas, he was anti-abortion. That won him the election. When he was running for president, he became pro-abortion and even initiated partial birth abortion. The Pope and his representatives will use this same deceit to get the masses to their agenda. and when someone questions it in their local church, their parish priest, or Protestant minister will lie and say they don’t agree with what the media stated, and then spin-doctor the truth to fit your ears.
We cannot deny the documented statements. They are right there in black and white! And we cannot deny what we hear when we confront those that speak such lies on a local level. Craftiness and deceit is a major tool in these last days.
|The great over-riding feature of the entire system of the Anti-Christ — the New World Order — is blatant deceit. In fact, New World Order writers boast of their planned deceptions, because they arrogantly believe the great majority of the world’s population is too stupid and lazy to know what is best for them. Only the New World Order Planners know what is best for the world, and they have determined that they can achieve their goals only by deliberate deception of the poor masses. (Bill Cooper, “Behold A Pale Horse”, p. 49; Peter LeMesurier, “The Armageddon Script”, 215-252).
Pope calls for a new world order
VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope John Paul II rang in the New Year on Thursday with a renewed call for peace in the Middle East and Africa and the creation of a new world order based on respect for the dignity of man and equality among nations.
This is a sad fact of society today my friends. If it isn’t Hollywood causing millions to become couch potato’s, it’s the Roman Catholic controlled Pharmacies pumping them with so many drugs that most people today look to the other guy to get off the couch and do something. Most agree things have gotten so bad that something needs to be done about it. But no one is willing to get off their backside to do it.
I have literally hundreds of pages on my site dedicated to the Vatican’s one world government / church deceptions alone. In fact, there is a section on the site that has gotten so huge, due to all the articles on this topic, that I had to shut it down. I simply could not keep up with all the facts coming in on a daily basis! So, I stopped posting the articles after the Roman International Criminal Court System was initiated. I knew it was only a few months before the United Religions Initiative would come to be, and so it did. Plus, I figured the hundreds of articles showing every aspect of the trickery played out before governing officials to make the NWO attractive were enough to convince even the hardened skeptic.
Two crafty lies were used by Rome to get those two global entities realized. Truth is, they actually used the same lie both times.
- Rome used the “peace and safety” lie that 1 Thessalonians 5:3 prophetically speaks of to get the Roman International court set up. They convinced the powers that be that if a global court was set up, all the world would be as one, and peace would be realized.
- Rome again used the “peace and safety” lie to get the United Religions religions ratified as well. They once more used craftiness and deceit to convince the leaders of all nations as well as churches that if a global church was brought forth, everyone would happily join and world peace would be the end result.
It doesn’t end there either. Rome also uses deceit and craftiness to get people to see her as a moral authority. However, when you dig deep and pull back the curtain you see all the decadence of the most evil entity ever known to man. An organization so evil that over 500 million Christians have been recorded to have lost their lives at the hands of these blood thirsty wolves. This is why the Lord sends them the 7 last plagues. In fact, plague # 2 & 3 specifically state it is because they are bloodthirsty that the Lord gives them blood to drink.
- Revelation 16:3-6, “And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea. And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.”
They receive blood to drink because they thirst for it. The Lord is only giving them what they want. I go into far more detail about the seven last plagues on the web-site in the prophecy section of the menu. It pretty amazing to see how each plague is not only understood why they will come, but how as well.
One thing really amazes me about the craftiness of this church is how they admitted on March 12, 2000 in Pope John Paul II’s mea culpa to the entire world in his globally televised manner that the Roman Catholic church did in fact kill all those Christians during what History records as the “dark ages.” Yet, the Roman Catholic church remains the largest church on earth sporting over 1.2 BILLION members! THAT is the ultimate testimony of craftiness and deceit.
No one will ever be able to convince me that all those loyal Catholics out there agree that it was ok to kill millions of people. Yet they remain members of that church still to this day. What’s worse, they stay members even after their priests have been caught molesting their very own children, and even after the statistics revealed that Roman Catholic priests are dying of AIDS ELEVEN TIMES greater than any other group in the USA! If any other entity or organization on earth admitted to such a hellish act they would be shut down immediately! Case in point, look at Hitler! To this day he is considered the most evil man ever to grace the face of this earth. Yet he has only been exposed as the mass murderer of only 6 million Jews. The records show that Rome killed over 83 times more people than Hitler ever did, and they are now called the moral authority and elected leader of the one world court system as well as one world church. If this is not the prophetic model for craftiness and deceit, then what else could possibly stand there?
And lately thanks to the Roman Catholic 2 hour commercial called “The Passion of the Christ” one can see that even the Protestant churches of today are falling for the deceit of Rome. Not long ago, all Protestant leaders have been openly documented as proclaiming Rome the home of Antichrist. However, today, all Protesting faiths agree the pope is the moral leader of the world!? Only one that has the satanic ability of craftiness and deceit Daniel speaks of in this prophecy can turn such graphically blunt tables as this. This prophecy is most assuredly fulfilled by this church in Rome!
Antichrist is both a political and religious power.
- Revelation 17:3, “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.”
In prophecy, a woman is defined as a church…
- Jeremiah 6:2 says, “I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman.”
We also understand the Church of Jesus Christ is considered to be the “Bride of Christ” because of many areas of Scriptures that describe her as such. It is also commonly understood that prophecy defines a beast to be a nation.
- Daniel 7:17, “These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.”
- Daniel 7:23, “Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.”
Even in today’s world, nations are described as beasts? The USA is seen as an eagle. Russia is likened unto a bear, and China even carries the image of a dragon.
Many years ago Daniel was given a great vision about all the nations of the earth till the end of time. In this vision he saw the last beast to be “diverse from all the others.” (Daniel 7:19) But how diverse would it be? According to Revelation 17:3 as we have already seen, this beast will have a woman riding it. Since prophecy defines a woman as a church, and a beast as a nation. Is there such an entity described in history? Is there a church and state mixed together as one some place today? Yes there is. Only one place on earth has ever done this. The Vatican of the Roman Catholic church has been established upon this type of union, and is now finalizing plans to use this prophecied church & state structure to obtain global rule in the place of pagan Rome.
Antichrist must join with the kings of the earth.
- Revelation 17:12, “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.”
Were you aware that as of the year 2000 there are over 170 ambassadors to the Vatican? And were you also aware that everyone of those ambassadors, as well as each delegate from each of those nations must have at one time or another bowed before the Pope in an act of worship by kissing his ring? Keep in mind that the Vatican is not only a religious organization, it is also a bonafide nation as of 1929 when Mussolini signed the Lateran treaty with Cardinal Gasspari. That means, the Vatican is the only religious organization that has a seat in all United Nation meetings. Or as prophecy describes it, the Vatican religious organization has joined with the kings of the earth. Rome does this so the Vatican can use it’s national status to perform religious acts it deems necessary in a global agenda. And ALL nations that have any interest in global movements have already stated they agree with the Vatican. They have openly joined with her on many issues of global importance. In fact, not a single nation makes a major move, or adopts a national policy without first making sure it doesn’t go against any of the plans of Rome. If they do Rome will most assuredly use the power of the lamb horned beast (USA) to make sure they stay in line. Plus, as of the inception the Roman International Criminal Court system coming to be in 1999, all nations know that it would not be a wise decision to go against the Vatican. What with the USA, or as prophecy defines it, the lamb horned beast bowing to the Vatican’s suggestions regarding warfare. This by the way is regardless of what the media pumps before the masses. They know that to go against Rome would be futile. Many historians tie all the modern day wars, and most wars of the past to Roman Catholic influence. The prophecy is sure when it is said that “…Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? ” -Revelation 13:4
Of course this final hour prophecy being spoken of is yet to arrive when all the kings will join with Rome in it’s globally realized attack on the true Christian that follows the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. But when that day comes, it will be their final act of rebellion against the Creator God. That act will end with their total destruction as Jesus Christ Himself, with His Father, will split the eastern sky to put and end to their blasphemous reign. However, as of April of 1968 we see that day approaching quickly.
Adaptive Model of the Global World System
“The Club [of Rome] had its beginnings in April of 1968, when leaders from ten different countries gathered in Rome…The organization claims to have the solutions for world peace and prosperity...The Club of Rome has been charged with the task of overseeing the regionalizaton and unification of the entire world...
“The Club’s findings and recommendations are published from time to time in special, highly confidential reports, which are sent to the power-elite to be implemented. On 17 September 1973 the Club released one such report, entitled Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System… The document reveals that the Club has divided the world into ten political/ economic regions, which it refers to as ‘kingdoms.’”
They actually use the same terminology expressed in the prophecy. The Lord stated they would have “ten kings” in the end that rule the world, and the club of Rome declares there will be “ten kingdoms” in the coming days.

Antichrist is to be able to influence entire world to worship him
- Revelation 13:8, “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
To worship is to be in agreement with that which you worship. Are not all Christians in agreement that the Lord Jesus is correct in His Truth? Strong’s Concordance defines the word worship in this way…
|Strongs # 4345
AV – worship 60; 60
Worship can be done by simple agreement, however, it can also be done by an open act. In Daniel 3 we see that as fact when Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refused to bow before the statue King Nebuchadneezar set up before the people. The entire nation bowed of course, but those three students of Daniel bluntly refused. Were they fanatics as some would call them today? Or was God about to define that act as an open act of worship regardless of what the person felt in his heart?
For example, do you honestly believe ALL those people worshipped that idol the king set up that day merely because he asked them to? Could it be the majority of them were bowing out of fear and not worship? Truth is, the king stated plainly in Daniel 3:6 that, “…whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.” Common sense affords us the reality that it was FEAR that caused them to bow. Yet, Daniel’s three students still refused? Could it be just the simple act of worship is enough to commit the sin? Indeed it is! For this is confirmed when Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrown into that furnace of fire! It was so hot that the men that threw them were engulfed in flames and killed by doing so. However, Jesus Christ Himself appeared in the flames to prevent harm to those three young men. This confirmed the Lord was pleased with their refusal to merely bow. He rewarded their refusal to break commandment number two with an open sign that no thinking person could deny. It was so graphic in fact that King Nebuchadneezar himself was moved to believe. When he saw those three young men walking in the flame without any ill effects, and at the same time looking upon his own muscle bound guards lying dead at the entrance of that furnace, he knew something amazing happened that day! He realized that merely bowing before that statue he set up was sin! Daniel records this king’s reaction rather well…
- Daniel 3:24-30, “Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire. And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them. Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God. Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort. Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the province of Babylon.”
Did you notice, even the king agreed that bowing before his golden statue was an act of worship? He said with his own mouth that God had sent His Angel to protect those three young men “that they might not serve, nor worship any god, except their own God.” So… How does Roman Catholicism fulfil this prophecy? Are Catholics taught to worship the pope? Is the entire world taught to do this as well? In John chapter 17 we read this…
- John 17:11, “And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.”
Jesus is in the Garden praying just before Judas arrives with the mob to take Him away to be crucified. In this prayer, Jesus actually calls His Father in Heaven HOLY FATHER! Every catholic on earth, every priest, every cardinal, every bishop, and every nun is taught to call the pope holy father. Even the media calls him this blasphemous name. Every newspaper, magazine, TV news anchorman, and radio announcer uses that title for the pope. Plus, every dignitary, president, or head of state must kiss the hand of the pope either in private, or before the cameras to make a statement. We have all seen the many pictures of people kissing the pope’s ring.
From the common man, to mainstream political entities, they must all kiss this man’s hand! This is an open act of worship the pope is receiving with complete agreement. Often the pope won’t even raise his hand for the person to kiss it. They literally have to bow before him to kiss his hand dangling at his side as we see the British dignitary doing in that photo. It used to be not so many days past that it was the pope foot you must kiss as is shown in this etching…
Truth is, many Catholics to this day are taught this is an acceptable act of worship towards the pope. In St’ Peter’s Basillica is a statue that is called “Peter.” Truth is, the statue was originally called Jupiter, but when the Vatican mixed Paganism with Christianity, they renamed a lot of the Pagan gods, giving them Christian names. Notice the foot of this statue. It is extended out so as to make it easier for the passers by to bow before so as to kiss it. Notice also the foot is worn down so smooth that even the features of the toes are all but completely erased! This is a bronze statue! Can you imagine how many millions and millions of kisses it would take from the soft lips of Catholics the world over to wear the metal away from this statue? This is amazing! Please, pray for these devout people. They have such a misdirected zeal. If they would direct their worship towards the true God of all creation, imagine how wonderful that would be!
The other definition of worship would be to lie prostrate before a statue, or a person. Does the pope even accept this type of extreme reverence? Below, please take a look at the group of priests that are seeking the pope’s approval to be ordained as Roman Catholic priests.
It’s amazing to me that the Vatican would allow such pictures to be made public. One of the pictures is a recent picture of pope John Paul accepting worship from what appears to be at least 80 young priests to be. And the next is probably the same amount of another pope many years ago.
This prophecy is most assuredly fulfilled by the popes of Rome. Nowhere on earth do you see such a man as this that is not only accepted, but is openly worshiped before the eyes of the Universe.
