To the Future and Beyond!
“The Enthronement of the Fallen Archangel Lucifer was effected within the Roman Catholic Church on June 29, 1963, a fitting date for the historic promise about to be fulfilled. As the principal agents of this Ceremonial well knew, Satanist tradition had long predicted that the Time of the Prince would be ushered in at the moment when a Pope would take the name of the Apostle Paul. That requirement – the signal that the Availing Time had begun – had been accomplished just eight days before with the election of the latest Peter-in-the-Line.”
– Malachi Martin, Windswept House, pg. 7
[In reference to Pope Paul VI who oversaw the completion
and implementation of Vatican II.]
Now we arrive at the Roman Catholic Church in Prophecy. We’ve already established and documented that Lucifer has long been enthroned in the Vatican and has fully infiltrated the institution that claims to be the “one true church,’ with clergy who are corrupt to the core. The homosexual priesthood has been in place, no doubt, since the Bishop of Rome first exalted himself and the eternal city’s primacy over other bishops and cities some fifteen-hundred years ago.
Catholic ‘saint’ Peter Damien (1007-1072), Abbot of the Fonte Avellana Monastery, is known to have confronted the perverted Catholic clergy in the Middle Ages. It was a cesspool then and is a cesspool now. He wrote a letter to Pope Leo IX in 1049 that reads in part:
“For God’s sake, why do you damnable sodomites pursue the heights of ecclesiastical dignity with such fiery ambition?… Who can expect the flock to prosper when its shepherd has sunk so deep into the bowels of the devil? … Who will make a mistress of a cleric, or a woman of a man? … Who, by his lust, will consign a son whom he spiritually begotten for God to slavery under the iron law of Satanic tyranny? … a religious superior guilty of sodomy has not only committed a sacrilege with his spiritual son, but has also violated the law of nature. Such a superior damns not only his own soul, but takes another with him.”
A leopard cannot change its spots. Ever since the Reformation, the Roman Catholic Church has had a non-stop PR campaign trying to erase the description of her from the Book of the Apocalypse. But it will haunt her until the end:
“Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 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. And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.” – Revelation 17: 1b-6a
It appears now that the second beast (Rev. 13:11-12) is about to come out of hiding and make his move. He has Pope Francis in one hand and George Soros in the other. His policies have the backing of the United Nations and the ‘enlightened ones’ of the world’s secret societies. A merger of a global ‘church and state’ is now in full view – Lucifer is just biting at the bit. He knows his time is short, yet he still thinks he can beat God in the battle for men’s souls.
The Strategy of the Devil and his Agents
In Christendom, just as in the political world, the devil embeds his agents into the system to divide and conquer from within. The primary paradigm Satan must advance is his ‘one world order’ – the reversal of The Tower of Babel. He wants dominion over the earth and its inhabitants and he can only accomplish that if humanity falls in line.
Recent history has shown the fingerprints of Satan’s Oneness in the civilized Western World with his dominance over the arts, the media, and politics. But the real prize is the church. The devil is very religious.
Since Vatican II, the barrier between Catholics and Protestants has begun to crumble. The spirit of antichrist must bring the little harlots back under the jurisdiction of the Mother of Harlots to achieve his purposes. The slogan used by false brethren to join back with Rome, “when the church is one” taken from the high priestly prayer in John 17, distorts the Lord’s will for brothers and sisters to live in unity. [For a closer look at ecumenicalism see https://christiansentinel.com/2017/07/03/2017-year-jubilees-toward-unification-christendom/ ]
The devil has come a long way since the days when Billy Graham started giving Catholic churches access to new believers coming down to his altar calls. He made more traction during the charismatic renewal in the mainline denominations who held joint conventions with charismatic Catholics who spoke in tongues to Mary. Then he inspired the writers of the Evangelicals and Catholics Together (ECT) treaty and later achieved a similar unification pact with Lutherans.
Popular Evangelical leaders not only set a bad example to the flock by embracing the pope and his ‘priests’ in public, but vilify believers who dare to speak out against undoing the Reformation.
Even leading apologists in the church turned traitor and became Catholics, like Baylor Philosophy Professor Francis Beckwith, whose conversion to Rome was defended by his friends, apologists Bob and Gretchen Passantino. The Passantinos were even guests on the radio show of Catholic Answers, the ‘lay-ministry’ of Catholic apologist, Karl Keating, the self-avowed enemy of Calvary Chapel and author Dave Hunt. The Lutheran apologists had this to say to their host, Jerry Usher, in that August, 2000 interview:
Bob: “For one there is a great Christian scholar named Frederick Cobblestone, he was a Catholic Jesuit scholar who wrote a series of volumes of history… Cobblestone who was a Catholic Christian scholar who is one of the best philosophers around did a great job in going through some of these arguments.”
Gretchen: “We or Catholic Answers or anybody at Catholic Family Radio should be able to point you towards resources that would be helpful to you….Thank you; it was a blessing and we love Catholic Family Radio and we listen to it all of the time.”
There are seemingly many Judases in our midst; some are your own pastors or seminary professors. The unification of mainline denominations plus various Word/Faith or ‘seeker-friendly’ church groups with Rome is almost complete. ‘Unity in Diversity’ – is the catch phrase. The Devil has really done his due diligence. [For more details on Pope Francis’ inroads into Evangelicalism see: http://scatteredsheepreport.blogspot.com/2015/11/the-king-and-queen-of-new-religious.html ]
The biggest threat to the unification of Christianity under the headship of the pope are Christians who recognize the times and look for the Lord’s return. The mainline denominations are easier to conquer in their quest for supremacy.
“Even Luther and Calvin understood the Church to be the true heir of Israel. They also would have rejected dispensationalism, which only emerged as a method of biblical interpretation in the last two hundred years or so….Dispensationalists believe that the Kingdom will be a thousand-year, earthly reign of Christ, known as the Millennium… It has been explicitly rejected by the Catholic Church… St. Augustine, writing in the late 300s and early 400s, interpreted the reference to a ‘thousand years’ in Revelation 20 as a metaphor for the age of the Church. This would become the accepted belief of the Church, going unchallenged for many centuries… None of the Church Fathers believed in a secret removal of true believers prior to the Tribulation.” [Carl E. Olson, writer for The Rock magazine of Karl Keating, Are We Living in the Last Days? @2001]
Al Dager of Media Spotlight explains:
“The Catholic Church teaches that it already reigns as the Kingdom of God on earth and is, de facto, the ruler of the kingdoms of the earth whether or not those kingdoms recognize it to be so… Since the Catholic Church does not believe in the millennial reign of Jesus, then there will be no other visible manifestation of the Kingdom of God other than the Catholic Church before the final judgment.” [Vol. 28 No 3, Summer 2005]
Most Protestant churches agree with Rome that Jesus does not return to set up His rule, but that they are ruling in the here and now. Those believers, Catholic and Protestant, ridicule and mock us who take Bible prophecy to heart. So they can all unite together, but we “dispensationalists” are seen as the backward-thinking outsiders.
The Coming Great Chastisement
“The great chastisement will come when carriages go without horses and many accidents fill the world with woe. It will come when ‘thoughts are flying round the earth in the twinkling of an eye,’ when long tunnels are made for horseless machines, when ships are wholly made of metal, when fire and water ‘great marvels do.” – Attributed to Mother Shipton in the 16th century. [Yves Dupont, Catholic Prophecy: The Coming Chastisement, page 113, @1970, Tan Books]
Prophecies of Catholic mystics and stigmatists, alongside demonic apparitions of angels of light, were designed by Satan to cover over the truth to give those questioning Catholics a competing end-times scenario. He would blind them to biblical end times prophecy to prevent them from recognizing what role the Roman Catholic Church plays in eschatology.
It is a fact of history that occultic spiritual exercises were common in Catholic monastic orders since way back when. Defenders of mindless meditation, self-flagellation and ecstatic experiences try to differentiate Western Mysticism from Eastern Hindu-based ones. But it’s just semantics – self-imposed altered states of consciousness opens the door to demonic activity however one arrives at it. And that would explain how lying spirits communicated to these victims of their own religious delusions.
These same occult traditions angered God in the Old Testament when the chosen people toyed with Babylonian false gods. The Bible puts it this way:
“Come, house of Jacob, and let us walk in the light of the LORD for You have abandoned Your people, the house of Jacob, because they are filled with influences from the east, and they are soothsayers like the Philistines.” – Isaiah 2:5-6a
Many of today’s fake seers use biblical apocalyptic passages to bend their mythology to appear supernatural. It’s the cheese in the rat trap. They even use some of the same characters like the antichrist and the false prophet. Here’s a glimpse of true Bible prophecy versus the metaphysically altered fiction.
· The return of the Jews to the holy land marked the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, starting the countdown to the Lord’s return
· Jerusalem is always the apple of God’s eye
· The great apostasy precedes the Great Tribulation
· True believers are raptured before God’s wrath is outpoured
· Saints return with Jesus to rule and reign by His side
· Jesus defeats Satan and casts him into the pit for a thousand years
· Jesus sets up His 1,000-year Kingdom on Earth after His return
· Zionism is the enemy; Catholics replaced the Jews as God’s chosen people and all prophecies about Israel apply to Catholics
· Rome replaced Jerusalem as the new city of God
· The hierarchy will be corrupted and led by an anti-pope
· Catholics are victorious over the antichrist in the coming darkness
· The Catholic faithful will convert entire world to Catholicism
· The Queen of Heaven defeats the devil and brings in era of peace
· A holy pope and righteous king will rule till the end of the world
It is easy to see how current events that Bible-believers recognize as signs of the birth pangs Jesus warned of, could be interpreted by Catholics as heralding the fulfillment of the warnings given by ‘divine revelation’ by their dead heroes of their faith. After all, in the Catholic Church, tradition trumps scripture all the time.
The scary thing about these Catholic prophecies is that they foresee two heroes that come to the rescue of the ‘Church’ during the time of social upheaval. However, these men are seen as heroes, when they actually take on the appearance of what Bible prophecy says are the false prophet and the antichrist. Both enter the end times looking benevolent.
Two 13th century Catholic holy men prophesied about them:
“After many long sufferings… and after too great an effusion of innocent blood, the Lord shall give peace and happiness to the desolated nations. A remarkable Pope will be seated on the pontifical Throne under the protection of the Angels. Holy and full of gentleness, he shall undo all wrong; he shall recover the Estate of the Church, and reunite the exiled temporal powers. He shall be revered by everybody, and shall recover the Kingdom of Jerusalem. He shall reunite the Eastern and the Western churches. The sanctity of this beneficent Pontiff will be so great that the highest potentates shall bow down in his presence. All men will return to the primitive Church, and there shall be only one Pastor, one Law, one Master – humble, modest, and fearing God.
“Before being firmly and solidly established in the Holy See, however, there will be countless wars and violent conflicts during which the sacred Throne will be shaken. Btu through the favour of divine mercy, moved by the prayers of the faithful, everything will succeed so well… In order to obtain these happy results, having need of a powerful temporal assistance, the Holy Pontiff will ask for the collaboration of the generous Monarch of France” – Abbot Joachin Merlin (13th century) — [Dupont, Catholic Prophecy, pp. 26-27]
If I were a Catholic today, I would find solace in these words. The current uprising of ‘faithful’ Catholics against the corruption of the homosexual hierarchy is now making headlines. How comforting to them to read in this 13th century prophecy about a coming good pope that “he shall recover the Estate of the Church’ – especially considering that the pedophile scandal has cost the ‘Church’ billions of dollars. As these ‘faithful’ recite millions of rosaries, their mystics predict Mary and the Archangel Michael will defeat Satan and the whole world will be converted to their religion.
The other 13th century seer that affirms the abbot’s vision had this to say:
“Spoilation, pillaging, and devastation of that most famous city which is the capital and mistress of France will take place when the Church and the world are grievously troubled. The Pope will change his residence and the Church will not be defended for twenty-five months or more because, during all that time, there will be no Pope in Rome, no emperor and no ruler in France. But, after this, a young captive prince shall recover the Crown of the Lilies and shall extend his dominions all over the world.
“After many tribulations, a Pope shall be elected out of those who survived the persecutions. By his sanctity he will reform the clergy, and the whole world shall venerate the Church for her sanctity, virtue, and perfection.” – John of Vatiguerro (13th century) – [p. 28, Dupont, Catholic Prophecy)
Now the Catholic laity can count on this seer’s vision to see the end of the perverted priesthood and a return to the Church’s prior glory days. They take their solace in the lying visions and prognostications of ‘holy’ men and women like Mother Shipton and Nostradamus.
The angel of light known to Catholics as “Our Lady of Fatima” confirmed these false prophecies with the use of lying signs and wonders. And a mute and unknown ‘angel’ appeared in Fatima as well, just to seal the false vision. The ‘three children seers’ testified of these things without any spiritual knowledge or understanding of God’s word with which to test these things – all they knew is it had to be of God since it was scary and other-worldly. Others assumed it was the archangel Michael, who is said to be Mary’s co-conqueror of the devil during the coming storm. The two of them, along with the ‘Eucharist’ are God’s agents for the final victory.
And so prayers are made to these two, instead of to God, now and especially in the future during the actual time of Tribulation when the antichrist will not just “prevail over the saints,” but over all those that dwell on the Earth.
“It was granted to him to make war
with the saints and to overcome them…” – Rev. 13:7a
While the Tribulation saints are seeking the Lord for protection, the Tribulation Catholics will be reciting by rote prayers such as this, to no avail, I might add:
“Let us repeat Pope Pius X’s beautiful prayer, knowing that, according to St. Alphonsus Liguori, devotion to St. Michael [the archangel referred to mistakenly as a saint] is a sign of predestination to Heaven : ’O Mary, our sweet Mediatrix, who are Queen of Heaven and earth, we beseech You humbly, deign always to intercede for us. Ask God to send St. Michael and the angels to push aside all the obstacles that stand in the way of the reign of the Sacred Heart in our souls, in our families, in France and in the whole world. And you, O St. Michael, Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, come to us. We ardently appeal to you. Protect us against the unleashed powers of Hell, and through the divine virtue with which you are vested, give victory to the Church here below, and lead our souls to our eternal homeland. Amen. Immaculate Heart of Mary, Your Kingdom come.’” — (St. Pius X, 300 days of indulgence, 29 June 1906)
Do you see the set-up? While the events of Revelation and Daniel play out in real time, left-behind Catholics will be looking for help in all the wrong places. They won’t recognize the ongoing fulfillment of Bible prophecy as they kneel before statues of Mary and Michael and do perpetual adoration and rosaries before their sun-burst monstrances.
As they look for Mary to set up ‘Her Kingdom’, they will turn to leaders of the resistance like Michael Voris, whose Church Militant website spurs them on:
“Mary is a tenderloving (sic) mother, absolutely. But She is also the Queen of the heavenly armies, the angels, and Queen of the saints. She may be sweet Mother to us, but to Hell and the devils, She is a terrifying sight to behold….Mary looks like God and She more closely resembles God than any other creature could. So when the demons encounter the Woman, it is a horror to them…. Rightfully, then, does Holy Mother Church comprehend the Queen of Heaven as the terror of demons, for it is She Who crushes the serpent’s head.” [Church Militant “The Weapon”]
The Response of the Saints: ‘It is Written’
Because we do take the bible literally, understanding that it uses figures of speech, symbolism and metaphor, we rightly divide the Word of Truth. We don’t spiritualize or allegorize clear passages. God’s Word is not merely letters on paper to be humanly systematized, but God breathes upon His Word into our regenerated spirits (Heb. 4:12). We’re looked upon as unscholarly to the religious elite with all the initials behind their names.
Yet, it is the wise guys who fall into the ecumenical talks and trickery of our arch enemy, the devil; the spirit of antichrist. The true Bride of Christ is watching and waiting for the Bridegroom – we are the virgins with oil in our lamps.
The Mother of Harlots calls herself ‘The Mother Church’ and their offspring, those following the denominations of the Reformation, have devolved into the children of the Harlot.
When professing Christians mock at our Blessed Hope, we respond with the Word of Truth and hold onto His promise that He will never leave us nor forsake us to the end of this age.
The time has come – not for unity with the blind guides – but for separation from them and gathering with those who see the nearness of the time of our visitation when He gathers us into the Bridal Chamber for our protection, before returning with Him when the real victory comes.
“And I heard another voice from heaven saying,
“Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins,
and lest you receive of her plagues.” – Rev 18:4
