BABYLON
FROM DANIEL’S VISION’S NEBUCHADNEZZAR’S DREAM OF THE GREAT IMAGE AND THE FOUR BEASTS PART 1 THE HEAD OF GOLD AND THE LION WITH EAGLES WINGS (1 ST BEAST) DANIEL 2:31 “Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood befor e thee; and the form thereof was terrible.” DANIEL 2:32 “This images head was of fine gold” DANIEL 2:38 “And where so ever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over the m all. Thou art this head of gold .”
BABYLON IS ALSO THE FIRST BEAST OF DANIEL 7

DANIEL7:17 “These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.” DANIEL 7:4 “The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings:”
THE BIBLE PREVIOUSLY DESCRIBES BABYLON LIKE A LION.

JEREMIAH 4:7 “The lion is come up from his thicket , and the destro y e r of the Gentiles is on his way; he is gone forth from his place to make thy land desolate; and thy cities shall be laid waste, without an inhabitan t.” JEREMIAH 28:14 “For thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; I have put a yoke of iron upon the neck of all these nations, that they may serve Nebucha d n e z z a r king of Babylon; and they shall serve him: and I have given him the beasts of the field also .” JEREMIAH 50:43 - 44 “The king of Babylon hath hear d the repor t of them, and his hands waxed feeble: anguish took hold of him, and pang s as of a wom a n in travail. Behold he shall come up like a lion from the swelling of Jordan unto the habitation of the strong:”
SO WE KNOW THAT BABYLON IS THE HEAD OF GOLD, AND THE FIRST BEAST WHICH WAS A LION WITH EAGLE’S WINGS. WHICH ROSE TO POWER IN THE YEAR 606 B.C. IN THE BRITISH MUSEUM YOU WILL FIND A GREAT STONE TAKEN FROM THE ANCIENT CITY OF BABYLON- WHICH PORTRAYS A LION WITH WINGS. THIS WAS THE SYMBOL OF BABYLON. NEXT IN PART 2 MEDO- PERSIA CONQUERS BABYLON, AND BECOMES THE NEXT WORLD POWER.

PERSIA
FROM DANIEL’S VISION’S NEBUCHADNEZZAR’S DREAM OF THE GREAT IMAGE AND THE FOUR BEASTS PART 2 THE BREASTS AND ARMS OF SILVER AND THE BEAR (2 ND BEAST) DANIEL2:32 “His breas ts and arms of silver”
THE NEXT TWO VERSES DEAL WITH THE FALL OF BABYLON.

DANIEL 2:39 “And after thee shall arise another kingdo m inferior to thee” DANIEL 7:4 “And I beheld till the wings thereof were plucke d, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made to stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.”
BABYLON WAS MADE UP OF THREE KINGDOMS BABYLON, LYDIA, AND EGYPT. THE NEXT KINGDOM TO RULE IS DESCRIBED NEXT. THIS KINGDOM IS MEDO- PERSIA.

DANIEL5:28 “Pe- res; thy kingdo m is divide d, and given to the Medes and Persians”
HERE GOD TELLS US THAT BABYLON WILL BE DIVIDED BY THE MEDES AND THE PERSIANS .

DANIEL5:31 “And Darius the median took the kingdo m, being about threescor e and two years old.” DANIEL7:5 “And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised itself up on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it betwe e n the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, arise and devour much flesh.”
THIS SECOND BEAST DESCRIBES PERSIA THE SECOND KINGDOM TO RULE. THE THREE RIBS STAND FOR THE THREE KINGDOMS BABYLON CONQUERED UP TO THE YEAR 606 B.C. BABYLON WAS MADE UP OF THREE KINGDOMS BABYLON, LYDIA, AND EGYPT. PERSIA CONQUERED THE WORLD IN 538 B.C. THE PERSIANS WERE STONGER THAN THE MEDES AND CONQUERED THEM SOON AFTER. DANIEL SAW THIS IN VISION ALSO, AND FORETOLD OF THIS AS WELL, WHICH WE SEE NEXT.

DANIEL 8:3- 4 “Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood before the river a ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last. I saw the ram pushing westw a r d, and north w a r d, and south w ar d; so that no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did accor din g to his will and beca m e great.”

3 DANIEL 8:20 “And the ram which thou sawest having two horns, are the kings of Media and Persia”

DAINEL 11:2 “And now will I show thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three, kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia.”

GREECE
FROM DANIEL’S VISION’S NEBUCHADNEZZAR’S DREAM OF THE GREAT IMAGE AND THE FOUR BEASTS PART 3 THE BELLY AND THIGHS OF BRASS, THE HE GOAT AND THE LEOPARD (3 RD BEAST) DANIEL 2:39 “And another third kingdo m of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.” DANIEL7:6 “After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopar d, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four head s ; and dominion was given to it.”
THIS WAS GREECE WHICH CONQUERED PERSIA, THIS WAS DONE BY THE HAND OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT. THE FOUR WINGS STAND FOR THE SPEED IN WHICH HE CONQUERED THE WHOLE WORLD. HE DID IT IN 13 YEARS FASTER THAN ANY COUNTRY IN HISTORY HAS DONE. HE BEGAN AT THE AGE OF 18 AND FINISHED AT 31 YEARS OF AGE.

DANIEL 8:5 “And as I was considerin g, behold, an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touche d not the ground: and the he goat had a notable horn betwee n his eyes. And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power. And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was move d with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the groun d, and sta m p e d upon him: and there was none who could deliver the ram out of his hand.” DANIEL 8:21 “And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is betwe e n his eyes is the first king.” DANIEL 11:3 “And a might y king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will.”
ISN’T IT INTERESTING HOW HE PREDICTIED THIS 207 YEARS BEFORE IT HAPPENED? AND IT HAPPENED EXACTLY AS HE SAID IT WOULD. LOOK IN HISTORY. REMEMBER DARIUS FROM DANIEL5:31 .

THE ART OF WAR IN THE WESTERN WORLD chapter 1 Ancient Warfare pg.25 2 nd and 3 rd paragraph. At Arbela, Alexander's third major battle against the Persians, he again met Darius , who had assembled a large, heterogeneous army which even included chariots and a few elepha nts. To save his crum bling empire, Darius waited to receive the greek invaders in battle, having wisely chosen level ground suitable for his calvary and chariots. Since his army, thought powerful lacked much heavy infantry, he had placed his mounted troops in the forefront of his array. Alexander moved his army forward to attack the Persian army, leading the right flank himself. He could clearly see Darius in the center, “conspicuous in the midst of his life- guard, a tall and fine looking ma n, drawn in a lofty chariot, defended by an abunda nce of the best horse, who stood in close order about it, ready to receive the enem y.” As the armies became closely engaged, Alexander led his Compa nions and heavy infantry phalanx against the enem y center, the Compa nions defeating the Persian army by “ thrusting themselves against the Persians and striking their faces with their spears” and routing their center. Darius saw that “all was lost, that those who were placed in front to defend him were broken and beat back upon him, that he could not turn or disengage his chariot without great difficulty, the wheels being clogged and entangled among the dead bodies, which lay in such heaps as not only stopped, but almost covered the horses, and made them rear and grow so unruly, that the frightened charioteer could govern them no longer.” The defeated Persian monarch did escape, moun ted on a horse. Alexander turned away with his men to rescue his hard - pressed left and win a decisive victory . IT ALSO STATES WITHOUT ALEXANDER'S GENIUS THE GREEKS
COULD NOT HAVE CONQUERED THE PERSIAN EMPIRE. SOON AFTER HE DIED AT THE AGE OF 33 FROM ALCOHOL POISONING WHILE DRINKING WITH HIS TROOPS, HE BELIEVED THE STRONG SHOULD RULE THE WEAK, AND LEFT HIS KINGDOM DIVIDED BETWEEN HIS FOUR GREATEST GENERALS. DANIEL ALSO PREDICTED THIS…TWICE!!! SO WHAT ABOUT THE FOUR HEADS OF THE 3 RD BEAST, THE FOUR HORNS OF THE HE GOAT AND ALEXANDER’S FOUR GENERALS? DANIEL 11:4 “And when he shall stand up, his kingdo m shall be divided towar d the four winds of heaven; and not to his prosperity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdo m shall be plucked up, even for others beside thoses.”

DANIEL7:6 “The beast had also four heads; and dominion was given
to it .” DANIEL 8:8 “Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and it came up four notable ones towar d the four winds of heav en.”

5 DANIEL 8:22 “Now that being broken, where as four stood up for it, four kingdo m s shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power.”
DANIEL 8:22 TELLS US THAT GREECE WOULD BE DIVIDED INTO FOUR KINGDOMS, BUT ALEXANDER WOULD NOT BE THE RULER. ALEXANDER'S FOUR LEADING GENERALS WERE 1)CASSANDER, 2)LYSIMACHAS , 3)SELEUCUS, 4)PTOLEMY, ALL THIS TOOK PLACE IN THE YEAR 168 B.C. THE SAME YEAR ROME CONQUERED GREECE. DANIEL ALSO PREDICTS THE FALL OF GREECE TO ROME. ROME BECOMES THE NEXT WORLD POWER IN PART 4.

ROME
FROM DANIEL’S VISION’S NEBUCHADNEZZAR’S DREAM OF THE GREAT IMAGE AND THE FOUR BEASTS PART 4 THE LEGS OF IRON AND THE TERRIBLE BEAST (4 TH BEAST) AND THE LITTLE HORN THAT CAME UP OUT OF ONE THE FOUR HORNS OF THE HE GOAT

DANIEL 8:9 “And out of one of them (4 horns of Daniel 8:8) came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.”
ROME CAME TO POWER AMID THE DIVIDED LAND AFTER ALEXANDER’S DEATH.

DANIEL 8:10 - 11 “And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stampe d upon them. Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host , and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away , and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.”
DANIEL8:12 “And the host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgr es sion, and it cast down the truth to the ground ; and it practiced and pros per e d.”
THE DAILY SACRIFICE OF THE JEWS WAS NOT TAKEN AWAY UNTIL CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED ON THE CROSS. PILATE WAS THE GOVERNOR WHOM THE JEWS BROUGHT JESUS BEFORE. HE WAS ONE OF THE GOVERNOR’S OF ROME.

DANIEL2:33 “his legs of iron ” DANIEL2:40 “and the fourth kingdo m shall be as strong as iron :
foras m u c h as iron break e t h in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron break in pieces and bruise.” DANIEL7:7 “and after this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong excee dingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devour e d and brake in pieces, and stam p e d the residue with the feet of it: and it was divers e from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns .
ROME CONQUERED GREECE IN THE YEAR 168 B.C. AND RULED UNTIL 476 A.D IT WAS OFTEN CALLED THE IRON MONARCHY. SO FAR DANIEL HAS PERFECTLY PREDICTED RISE OF THE ROMAN KINGDOM OVER 438 YEARS BEFORE IT HAPPENED.

DANIEL 7:24 “And the ten horns out this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise:”
NEXT WE WILL COVER THE FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE IN 476 A.D. AND THE RISE OF THE PAPACY…THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE. TERTULLIAN WHO WAS BORN IN 155ad AND DIED IN 222ad, OVER TWO CENTURIES BEFORE THE FALL OF THE WESTERN ROMAN EMPIRE, SPOKE CONCERNING THE FUTURE FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE. SAMUEL J. CASSELS, “CHRIST AND ANTICHRIST” PG.12, PRESBYTERIAN BOARD OF PUBLICATION, PHILADELPHIA 1846; EXTRACTED FROM “DE RESURRECTIONE CARNIS” CH.24 SPEAKING OF ROME “Whose separation into ten kingdo ms will bring on ANTICHRST”

RISE OF THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE THE PAPACY
FROM DANIEL’S VISION’S NEBUCHADNEZZAR’S DREAM, FEET OF THE GREAT IMAGE THE LITTLE HORN OF THE FOURTH BEAST AND THE BEAST OF THE SEA OF REVELATION 13
PART 5 EMPEROR CONSTANTINE WAS KNOWN AS THE FIRST CHRISTIAN EMPEROR, JUSTINIAN WHO SUCCEEDED CONSTANTINE WAS THE LAST ROMAN EMPEROR.

DANIEL7:8 “I consider e d the horns” DANIEL7:20 “and the ten horns out of this kingdo m are ten kings
that shall arise.” DANIEL2:33 “his feet part of iron and part of clay” DANIEL2:4 “and as the toes were part of iron, and part of clay , so the kingdo m shall be partly strong, and partly broken”
ROME FELL IN THE YEAR 476 A.D. AND WAS DIVIDED INTO EXACTLY TEN KINGDOMS AND THE TEN KINGDOMS WERE THE ANGLO- SAXONS, ALEMANNI, HERULI, VANDALS, OSTROGOTHS, VISIGOTHS, SUEVI, LOMBARDS, BURGUNDIANS AND THE FRANKS.

DANIEL7:8 “I consider e d the horns , and, behold, there came up amo ng them another little horn , before who m there were three of the
first horns plucked up by the roots :” DANIEL 7:24 “and the ten horns out of this kingdo m are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall arise after them; and he shall be divers e from the first, and shall subdue three kings.”
JUSTINIAN WAS THE LAST EMPEROR OF ROME, CONSTANTINE THE PREVIOUS EMPEROR, DID THE ONE THING NO OTHER EMPEROR HAD, HE STOPPED THE PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS AND SOUGHT TO BRING PAGANISM AND CHRISTIANITY UNDER THE SAME ROOF. HE SUCCEEDED, WITH THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, AFTER THE DEATH OF CONSTANTINE ROME WAS AT THE MERCY OF POPE SYLVESTER.

REVELATION13:2 “and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” FROM PAPAL RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES, 1889,PP.13,14 “When the Roman Empire becam e Christian and the peace of the church was
guarantee d, the Emperor left Rome to the Pope, to be the seat of authority for

8
the Vicar of Christ, who should reign there independ ent of all human authority, to the consum m a tion of ages, to the end of time.”

FROM THE MEDIEVAL READER PG.30 THE DONATION OF CONSTANTINE.
“THIS DOCUMENT WAS FORGED IN PAPAL CIRCLES BY A CLERK NAMED JOHN THE MANGLED- FINGERS TO HELP THE POPE COUNTERVAIL POWER OF THE RISING FRENCH MONARCHY. IT TELLS THIS STORY (MYTHICAL): CONSTANTINE, THE FIRST CHRISTIAN EMPEROR COMES DOWN WITH DREADED LEPROSY. POPE SYLVESTER 1 CURES HIM, AND CONSTANTINE IS SO GREATFUL THAT HE SURRENDERS ROME AND MUCH OF WESTERN EUROPE TO THE POPE AND TAKES UP RESIDENCE IN THE EAST. EMPERORS AND KINGS TRIED TO IGNORE THE DOCUMENT WHOSE AUTHENTICITY WAS WIDELY BELIEVED IN, ALTHOUGH NOT BY EVERYONE. IT WAS PROVEN A FORGERY IN THE FIFTEENTH CENTURY, BY WHICH TIME IT DIDN’T MATTER”

REVELATION13:1 “and I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw
a great beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the nam e of blasph e m y .”

“FOR A TIME, THE OUTWARD DISSENSION CEASES, AND IN THE STRUGGLE NOT FAR DISTANT WITH VANDALS OF AFRICA AND GOTHS (OSTROGOTHS AND VISIGOTHS), IN ITALY, THE EMPIRE REPRESENTS THE SIDE OF THE CATHOLIC FAITH AGAINST EITHER PERSECUTING OR TOLERANT ARIANISM.”

“THE GOTHIC ARMY FLED, BECOMING ENTANGLED IN THEIR OWN INFANTRY IN THE PROCESS, AND KING TOTILA RECEIVED A MORTAL WOUND DURING HIS FLIGHT FROM THE FIELD. THIS BATTLE OVERTHREW THE GOTHIC RULE IN ITALY, AND RETURNED ITALY TO THE EMPIRE.”

“THE GOTHS RETURNED TO THEIR OLD POSITION AS SERVANTS AND ALLIES OF ROME. IN 512 A.D THE HERULI AFTER THEIR DEFEAT BY THE LOMBARDS WERE SETTLED IN THE EMPIRE, BUT AFTERWARDS REBELLED AND HAD TO BE PUT DOWN BY FORCE.” THE THREE HORNS (KINGDOMS) THAT WERE PLUCKED UP WERE THE VANDALS, THE OSTROGOTHS AND THE HERULI THIS LEAVES SEVEN HORNS, NOTICE THE BEAST OF REVELATION HAS SEVEN HEADS

REVELATION13:1 “and I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a great beast rise up out of the sea , having seven heads” DANIEL 7:8 “and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speakin g great things” DANIEL 7:25 “and he shall speak great wor ds against the most HIGH, and wear out the saints of the most HIGH, and think to change times and laws ;”

NOTICE THE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN THE LITTLE HORN OF DANIEL AND THE BEAST OF THE SEA OF REVELATION 13 BOTH SPEAK GREAT THINGS AGAINST GOD AND BLASPHEMIES (WHICH IS TO SPEAK AGAINST GOD).

REVELATION 13:5 “and there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasph e m i e s” DANIEL 8:24 “and his pow er shall be might y, but not by his own power: and he shall destro y wonderf ully, and shall prospe r, and practice, and shall destro y the might y and the holy people.” CAMBRIDGE MEDIEVAL HISTORY V. 1 “THE CHRISTIAN ROMAN EMPIRE” (THE CATHOLIC CHURCH). CH.1 PG. 14 SPEAKING OF CONSTANTINE

“HIS ONE OBJECT WAS TO MAKE AN END OF THE DIVISION OF THE CHURCHES. SO WHATEVER PLEASED THE BISHOPS PLEASED THE EMPEROR TOO. EASTER WAS FIXED ACCORDING TO THE CUSTOM OF ROME AND ALEXANDRIA FOR THE SUNDAY AFTER THE FULL MOON FOLLOWING THE VERNAL EQUINOX. IT IS THE RULE WE HAVE NOW, AND THOUGH IT DID NOT PRODUCE THE COMPLETE UNITY TILL THE LUNAR CYCLE WAS SETTLED, IT SECURED THAT EASTER SHOULD COME AFTER THE PASSOVER, FOR SAID CONSTANTINE “HOW CAN WE WHO ARE CHRISTIANS KEEP THE SAME DAY AS THOSE UNGODLY JEWS?”
THIS WAS DONE WITH THE COUNCIL OF NICEA AT WHICH TIME THEY ALSO CHANGED THE BIBLE SABBATH FROM THE SEVENTH DAY (SATURDAY) TO THE FIRST DAY (SUNDAY). OR IN REALITY THOUGHT THEY CHANGED IT.

DANIEL 7:25 “and THINK to change times and laws” DANIEL 8:25 “and through his policy also he shall cause craft to pros p e r 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.”
CONSTANTINE WAS NOT BROKEN BY ANY ENEMY AND HE BY HIS OWN WILL MOVED HIS THRONE TO CONSTANTINOPLE, LEAVING NOONE TO RULE IN ROME BUT THE POPE, UPON HIS DEATH THE DONATION OF CONSTANTINE SURFACED. SO WHAT ABOUT HIS POLICY? LET’S FIRST LOOK AT THE BIBLE.

EXODUS 20:8- 11 “Reme m b e r the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: but the seventh day is the Sabb a th of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daught e r, thy manser v a n t, nor thy maidse r v a n t, nor thy cattle, nor thy stran ge r that is within thy gates: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefor e the Lord blessed the Sabbat h day, and howllowe d it.”
THE ABOVE VERSE IS THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT.

REVELATION 14:12 “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the com m a n d m e n t s of God, AND the faith of Jesus .

10
NOTICE IT SAYS COMMANDMENTS OF GOD AND THE FAITH OF JESUS, NOT OR THE FAITH OF JESUS. THIS TELLS US STRAIGHT FORWARD THAT THOSE SAVED WILL DO BOTH.

1 JOHN 5:3 “For this is the love of God, that we keep his com m a n d m e n t s : and his com m a n d m e n t s are not grievous.”
THIS IS WHAT GOD WANTS.

MATTHEW 19:17 “And he said unto him, why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life , keep the com m a n d m e n t s .”
HERE JESUS TELLS US IF WE WANT TO GO TO HEAVEN TO KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS, FOR THERE IS ONLY ONE OTHER LIFE BESIDES THE ONE WE ALREADY LIVE AND THAT IS ETERNAL LIFE. THE NEXT VERSE TELLS US THAT THE COMMANDMENTS LAST FOREVER.

PSALMS 111:7 - 8 “The works of his hands are verity and judgment; ALL his com m a n d m e n t s are sure. They stand fast for ever and ever , and are done in truth and uprightnes s.” LUKE 16:17 “and it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than for one tittle of the law to fail”
HERE IT PLAINLY STATES ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS STAND FOR EVER AND EVER. THIS INCLUDES THE SABBATH. NOONE CAN CHANGE GODS LAW BUT GOD. AND THE BIBLE SAYS RIGHT HERE THEY LAST FOREVER. REMEMBER DANIEL 7:25.

DANIEL 7:25 “and think to change times and laws”
NOW LETS LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED DURING THE REIGN OF CONSTANTINE AND PAPACY. REMEMBER “HIS ONE OBJECT WAS TO

MAKE AN END OF THE DIVISION OF THE CHURCHES. SO WHATEVER PLEASED THE BISHOPS PLEASED THE EMPEROR TOO” THE DARK AGES 711 - 1096 A.D THE WORLD HISTORY OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE PG.72 2 ND PAR. “THE CHRISTIANS WERE FORBIDDEN TO ABSTAIN FROM WORK ON THE SABBATH(BIBLE SABBATH;SATURDAY) , THUS PRACTICING JEWISH CUSTOM, OR TO ACCEPT GIFTS AT JEWISH FESTIVALS OR, FINALLY, TO ACCEPT THE JEWS UNLEAVENED BREAD, OR PARTICIPATE IN THEIR PROFANITIES.”
FROM 314 A.D. – 401 A.D. THE SEVENTH DAY SABBATH OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS WAS SLOWLY PUSHED DOWN WHILE THE SUNDAY SABBATH (THE POPES SABBATH) WAS EXALTED. 314 A.D. - ON SUNDAY “THERE SHALL BE A SUSPENSION OF BUSINESS AT THE COURTS AND OTHER CIVIL OFFICES” 321 A.D. - CONSTANTINES FAMOUS SUNDAY LAW IS PASSED REQUIRING REST ON THE “VENERABLE DAY OF THE SUN” "On the venerable day of

the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. In the country however persons engaged in agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits because it often happens that another day is not suitable for gain- sowing or vine planting; lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost. (Given the 7th day of March, Crispus and Constantinebeing consuls each of them the second time." Codex

325 A.D. - COUNCIL OF NICEA CHANGES THE SABBATH FROM THE SEVENTH DAY (SATURDAY) TO THE FIRST DAY (SUNDAY). 368 A.D. - COUNCIL OF LAODICEA CANON 29: “CHRISTIANS SHALL NOT JUDAIZE ON SATURDAY BUT SHALL WORK ON THAT DAY; BUT THE LORDS DAY THEY SHALL ESPECIALLY HONOR…IF HOWEVER THEY ARE CAUGHT JUDAIZING (BY KEEPING THE SABBATH) THEY SHALL BE CUT OUT FROM CHRIST.” 386 A.D. – BY A LAW OF THE YEAR 386 CIVIL TRANSACTIONS OF EVERY KIND ON SUNDAY WERE STRICTLY FORBIDDEN. 401 A.D. –COUNCIL OF CARTHAGE CANON 5: “ON SUNDAYS AND FEAST DAYS NO PLAYS MAY BE PERFORMED” THE QUESTION BOX 1913 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA “QUESTION : WHAT BIBLE AUTHORITY IS THERE FOR CHANGING THE SABBATH FROM THE SEVENTH DAY OF THE WEEK TO THE FIRST? WHO GAVE THE POPE THE AUTHORITY TO CHANGE A COMMAND OF GOD? ANSWER: IF THE BIBLE IS THE ONLY AUTHORITY FOR THE CHRISTIAN, THEN THE SEVENTH DAY ADVENTIST IS RIGHT IN OBSERVING SATURDAY WITH THE JEW. BUT CATHOLICS LEARN WHAT TO BELIEVE AND DO FROM THE DIVINE, INFALLIBLE AUTHORITY, ESTABLISHED BY JESUS CHRIST, THE CATHOLIC CHURCH , WHICH IN APOSTOLIC TIMES MADE SUNDAY THE DAY OF REST, TO HONOR OUR LORDS RESSURECTION ON THAT DAY, AND TO MARK OFF CLEARLY THE JEW FROM THE CHRISTIAN. IS IT NOT STRANGE THAT THOSE WHO MAKE THE BIBLE THERE ONLY TEACHER SHOULD INCONSISTANTLY FOLLOW IN THIS MATTER THE TRADITION OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH?” THIS IS A LIE!! IT WAS NOT DONE IN APOSTOLIC TIMES !!! IT WAS DONE WITH THE COUNCIL OF NICEA DURING EMPEROR CONSTANTINES REIGN, IT WAS DONE OVER 250 YEARS AFTER THE DEATH OF THE LAST APOSTLE!! THE PAPACY HAS BEEN CAUGHT IN A BOLD FACED LIE. THIS VERY EVIDENCE, THAT, COMES FROM HISTORY NOT FROM OPINION REFUTES THE POPES AND PAPACY’S CLAIM OF BEING INFALLIBLE.

DANIEL 7:25 “and he shall speak great wor ds against the most HIGH REVELATION 13:5 “and there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasph e m i e s”
THE BEAST OF REVELATION 13 HAS 7 HEADS AND TEN HORNS AND THE FOUR BEASTS OF DANIEL HAVE THE SAME TOTAL NUMBER OF HEADS AND HORNS. BABYLON (LION) 1 HEAD 0 HORNS MEDO- PERSIA (BEAR) 1 HEAD 0 HORNS GREECE (LEOPARD) 4 HEADS 0 HORNS ROME (TERRIBLE BEAST) 1 HEAD 10 HORNS TOTAL 7 HEADS 10 HORNS BEAST OF THE SEA (REV. 13) 7 HEADS 10 HORNS THE SCARLET BEAST (REV. 17) 7 HEADS 10 HORNS THE BEAST OF REVELATION 13 CLEARLY REPRESENTS A POWER THAT RESULTED FROM THE CULMINATION OF THE FOUR BEASTS OF DANIEL 7.

12
DANIEL 13:2 “And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopar d , and his feet were as the feet of a bear , and his mouth as the mouth of a lion : and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” FROM THE BOOK “TWO BEASTS, THREE DEADLY WOUNDS AND FOURTEEN POPES” BY RUSSELL R. STANDISH AND COLIN D STANDISH, BOTH WHICH RECEIVED DEGREES IN MODERN HISTORY FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA’S OLDEST AND MOST ESTEEMED INSTITUTE OF HIGHER LEARNING. Pg. 44- 48 CONCERNING THE 1 ST BEAST OF REVELATION 13 We shall now examine the reason God chose to designate this first beast of revelation 13 as a leopar d - - - Grecian in substance. “Scholasticism reached its height in the writings of the Dominican friar, Thoma s of Aquinas, “the angelic doctor.” His syste m a tic exposition of the catholic faith in terms of Aristotelian philosophy produced a revolution in Christian thought, for Augustine and Anselm, the Christian thinkers in general before Aquinas, had regarde d Platonism as the specifically Christian philosophy. (Henry Bettenson, documents of the Christian church, p.199)” here we see that Augustine, bishop of hippo (354 - 430), whose grossly faulted theolog y dominate d roman catholic thinking from the fifth century, brought the Greek pagan concepts of Plato (428 B.C.- 348 B.C) into the Christian church. Anselm (1033 - 1109) who served as Archbishop of Canterbur y is regard e d by Roman Catholics as the greatest theologian in the 800 year period between Augustine and Thomas Aquinas. Thomas Aquinas (1225 - 1274) merge d the views of the pagan Greek philosopher, Aristotle (384 B.C- 322 B.C.), with Christianity. As we shall later document, it was he who advocate d death for heretics as just, and the use of the state to enforce the church’s punishment of heretics. Thus in describing the first beast Revelation 13 as a leopard beast, Christ revealed to the apostle John a faith built on Greek philosophy intermixed with Christianity. The use of the symbol of the leopard power, Greece, from Daniel 7 is a most important and accurate clue to the identity of the first beast of Revelation 13. God’s symbols are always full of meaning. This beast possessed the feet of a bear, the symbol of the empire of Medo - Persia. It would crush opposition underfoot as did Medo - Persia. In what way was Medo - Persia able to crush opposition under its feet? The kings of Medo - Persia were deified (considere d gods) and so, as gods, they were declare d to be infallible in their decision making. Thus we read that their laws could not be altered once they were enacted by the king. We site two instances from Scripture. DANIEL 6:8, 12 “ Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it be not changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not (does not change). Then they came near, and spoke before the king concerning the kings decree; Hast thou not signed a decree, that every man that shall ask a petition of any God or man within thirty days, save of thee, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions? The king answer e d and said, the thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not. ESTHER 8:7,8 “Then the king Ashuerus said unto Esther the queen and to Mordecai the Jew, behold, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and him they have hanged upon the gallows, because he laid his hand upon the Jews. Write ye also for the Jews, as it liketh you, in the kings name, and seal it with the kings ring: for the writing which is written in the kings name, and sealed with the kings ring, may no man reverse. Here is another one. DANIEL 6:15 “Then these men assem bled unto the king, and said unto the king, Know O king, that the law of the Medes and

13
Persians is, That no decree nor statute which the king establisheth may be changed.” The long tradition of papal infallibility in the Roman Catholic Church and its proclam ation by Pope Pius IX, in 187 0 as a dog ma to be believed by all, is in the tradition of the bear (Medo - Persia) and is a powerful weapon designed to crush all dissent (difference of opinion) from papal proclam ations. How appropriat e that this powe r be represente d, in symbol, to possess the feet of a bear. This beast would speak the words of Babylon. This last feature must be reme m b e r e d, for the book of Revelation represents this powerful entity as spiritual Babylon in chapters 14, 16, 17, and 18. Thus it was appropriate for God to depict this power possessing the mouth of a lion, the symbol of Babylon in Daniel 7. There is yet a deeper and even more sinister meaning in the designation of the beast’s having the mouth of a lion. Babylon enforced worship by the issuing of a death decree designe d to quell all dissent. This decree was issued as the leader’s gathere d on the plain of Dura to perfor m an act of worship before the image set up by this beast (lion) power. DANIEL 3:1- 6 “Nebuchadne z z a r the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon. Then Nebuchadne z z a r the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasure rs, the counselors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadne z z a r the king had set up. Then the princes, the governor s, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counselors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces were gathered unto the dedication of the image that Nebuchadne z z a r the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadne z z a r had set up. Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is comm ande d, O people, nations, and languages, that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of music, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadne z z a r the king hath set up: and whoso falleth not down and worshippet h shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. Thus the mouth of the 1 st beast of Revelation 13repre sent e d fearful persecution of God’s people as a death decree was invoked for conscientious dissenters to the king’s decree. The second beast of Revelation 13, we are informed, uses its mighty powe r to enforce worship of the first beast. REVELATION 13:12 “And he excerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.” How appro p riat e that this coerced worship is said to involve the making of an image to the beast, paralleling that which happened under Babylon, the lion power, on the plain of Dura. REVELATION 13:14,15 “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Thus the first beast of Revelation 13 is identified as a power - - 1. The very theology of which is based upon Greek philosophy; 2. which proclaims its infallibility;

14
3. And which utilizes death decrees in order to exterminate all dissent from its dictated worship. Such identifying features greatly narro w the search for the identity of the beast of Revelation 13. THE POPE DECLARES HIMSELF “VICARIUS FILII DEI” IN ENGLISH “VICAR OF CHRIST” AN INTERESTING NOTE IS THAT THE ONLY GREEK INTERPRETATION FOR THE LATIN TERM VICARIUS FILII DEI IS ANTICHRISTOS, AND THE ONLY LATIN INTERPRETATION FOR THE GREEK TERM ANTICHRISTOS IS VICARIUS FILII DEI. THE DEFINITION OF THE WORD VICARIUS OR VICAR IS “SERVE INSTEAD OF SOMEONE ELSE” A “SUBSTITUTE” HENCE THE TERM “VICAR OF CHRIST” ACTUALLY MEANS A “SUBSTITUTE FOR CHRIST.” V= 5 F= 0 D = 500 I = 1 I= 1 E= 0 C = 100 L = 50 1 = 1 A= 0 I= 1 R= 0 I= 1 I= 1 U OR V = 5 S= 0 TOTAL = 112 + 53 + 501 GRAND TOTAL =66 6 THE NUMEROLOGY BREAKS DOWN THE SAME IN ALL OF THE THREE ORIGINAL LANGUAGES OF THE BIBLE WHICH ARE GREEK, LATIN, AND HEBREW.

VI, P.48 1. “THE POPE IS OF SO GREAT DIGNITY AND SO EXALTED THAT HE IS NOT A MERE MAN, BUT AS IT WERE GOD, AND THE VICAR OF GOD.” 2. “HENCE THE POPE IS CROWNED WITH A TRIPLE CROWN, AS KING OF HEAVEN AND OF EARTH AND OF THE LOWER REGIONS.” 3. “SO THAT IF IT WERE POSSIBLE THAT THE ANGELS MIGHT ERR IN THE FAITH, OR MIGHT THINK CONTRARY TO THE FAITH, THEY COULD BE JUDGED AND EXCOMMUNICATED BY THE POPE.” 4. THE POPE IS AS IT WERE GOD ON EARTH, SOLE SOVEREIGN OF THE FAITHFUL OF CHRIST, CHIEF KING OF KINGS, HAVING PLENTITUDE OF POWER, TO WHOM HAS BEEN ENTRUSTED BY THE OMNIPOTENT GOD DIRECTION NOT ONLY OF THE EARTHLY BUT ALSO OF THE HEAVENLY KINGDOM.” 5. “THE POPE CAN MODIFY DIVINE LAW, SINCE HIS POWER IS NOT OF MAN BUT OF GOD.”

6. “THE FIRST PROPOSITION NEEDS LITTLE PROOF. THE CATHOLIC CHURCH FOR OVER ONE THOUSAND YEARS BEFORE THE EXISTENCE OF A PROTESTANT, BY VIRTUE OF HER DIVINE MISSION CHANGED THE DAY FROM SATURDAY TO SUNDAY. WE SAY BY VIRTUE OF HER DIVINE MISSION, BECAUSE HE WHO CALLED HIMSELF THE "LORD OF THE SABBATH," ENDOWED HER WITH HIS OWN POWER TO TEACH, "HE THAT HEARETH YOU, HEARETH ME;" COMMANDED ALL WHO BELIEVE IN HIM TO HEAR HER, UNDER PENALTY OF BEING PLACED WITH THE "HEATHEN AND PUBLICAN;" AND PROMISED TO BE WITH HER TO THE END OF THE WORLD. SHE HOLDS HER CHARTER AS TEACHER FROM HIM - CHARTER AS INFALLIBLE AS PERPETUAL. THE PROTESTANT WORLD AT ITS BIRTH FOUND THE CHRISTIAN SABBATH TOO STRONGLY ENTRENCHED TO RUN COUNTER TO ITS EXISTENCE; IT WAS THEREFORE PLACED UNDER THE NECESSITY OF ACQUIESCING IN THE ARRANGEMENT, THUS IMPLYING THE CHURCH'S RIGHT TO CHANGE THE DAY, FOR OVER THREE HUNDRED YEARS. THE CHRISTIAN SABBATH IS THEREFORE TO THIS DAY, THE ACKNOWLEDGED OFFSPRING OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AS SPOUSE OF THE HOLY GHOST, WITHOUT A WORD OF REMONSTRANCE FROM THE PROTESTANT WORLD.” From the Catholic Mirror of Sept. 23, 1893
HERE WE HAVE IT FOLKS!!!!! STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSES MOUTH!!! HE CLAIMS TO BE GOD ON EARTH, HE CLAIMS TO BE RULER OF HEAVEN, EARTH AND HELL, HE CLAIMS TO BE ABLE TO CAST ANGELS OUT OF HEAVEN, AND HE CLAIMS TO BE ABLE TO CHANGE GODS LAWS! IF THAT IS NOT BLASPHEMY I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS!!!! THIS DIRECTLY CONTRADICTS THE TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE. AND ONE THING IS FOR SURE GOD HAS CHARGE OVER HIS WORD.

2THESSALONIANS 2:3- 4 “THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY” “LET KNOW MAN DECIEVE YOU BY ANY MEANS: FOR THAT DAY SHALL NOT COME,

16 EXCEPT THERE BE A FALLING AWAY FIRST, AND THAT MAN OF SIN BE REVEALED, THE SON OF PERDITION. WHO OPPOSETH AND EXALTETH HIMSELF ABOVE ALL THAT IS CALLED GOD , OR THAT IS WORSHIPPED, SO THAT HE AS GOD SITTETH IN THE TEMPLE OF GOD, SHOWING HIMSELF THAT HE IS GOD.
WHAT DOES JESUS SAY ABOUT THIS? MATTHEW 28:18 “And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, all power is given to me in heaven and in earth.” MATTHEW 10:24 “The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his Lord.” BUT THE POPE SAYS IAM GOD. “hence the pope is crowned with a triple crown, as king of heaven and of earth and of the lower regions.” MATTHEW 15:9 “BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING FOR DOCTRINES THE COMMANDMENTS OF MEN.” BUT THE POPE SAYS “the pope can modify divine law, since his powe r is not of man but of god.” FROM “THE HISTORY OF THE REFORMATION” BY J.H. MERLE D’AUBIGNE’ QUOTING MARTIN LUTHER “It is an awful thing to behold the man who styles himself Christ’s vicegerent displaying a magnificence that no emperor can equal. Is this being like the poor Jesus, or the humble Peter? He is (they say) the lord of the world! But Christ, whose vicar he boasts of being, has said, My kingdom is not of this world. Can the dominions of a vicar extend beyond those of his superior?” WITH THE EVIDENCE BEFORE YOU THE PAPACY HAS SHOWN THE WORLD THROUGH THE HISTORY OF HER ACTIONS, AND HER WORDS, THAT SHE IS THE 1 ST BEAST OF REVELATION 13. IT CANNOT BE REFUTED. GOD HAS CHARGE OVER HIS WORD (THE BIBLE), AND IT DOES NOT CONFLICT WITH ITSELF. AND HOW CAN HISTORY LIE?

THE WOMAN ON THE SCARLET BEAST
THE MYSTERY OF GOD AND MYSTERY OF INIQUITY PART 6
REVELATION 17:3- 6 “So he carried me away in the spirit into the
wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphe m y, having seven heads and ten horns . And the woman was arra ye d in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls , having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehea d was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woma n drunken with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her I wondere d with great admir ation.” GOD IN THE BIBLE FIGURATIVELY USES A WOMAN TO REPRESENT A CHURCH (ONE MEANING FOR CHURCH IS A “BODY OR CONGREGATION OF RELIGEOUS PEOPLE). THE BIBLE TELLS US THIS IN JEREMIAH

JEREMIAH 6:2 “I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman” ISAIAH 51:16 “say unto to Zion, thou art my people”
SO WE KNOW THAT GODS PEOPLE (CHURCH) ARE LIKENED TO A “COMELY AND DELICATE WOMAN” A HARLOT WOULD BE A FALSE CHURCH, ONE THAT DECEIVES. RELIGION HAS TWO FACES, ONE FACE IS THE FACE OF TRUTH, AND THE OTHER FACE IS THE FACE OF DECEPTION. WE WILL NOW STUDY WHAT THE MYSTERY OF GOD IS AND HOW THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY OPPOSES THE MYSTERY OF GOD.

EPHESIANS 3:1- 4 “For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, if ye have heard of the dispens ation of the grace of God which is given me to youw ar d (directe d towar ds you) : How that by revelation he made known unto me the myste r y; (as I wrote afore in few words, where b y, when ye read , ye may under st an d my knowled ge in the myste r y of Christ)
AS WE WILL LEARN IN THE NEXT VERSE, THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN JESUS AND GOD WAS NOT ENTIRELY KNOWN TO EVERYONE, SAVE THE HOLY APOSTLES AND PROPHETS, TO THE SONS OF MEN IT WAS ONLY KNOWN THAT A SAVIOR WAS TO COME AND DELIVER THE JEWS, A MESSIAH. IF HOSTAGES ARE TAKEN IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY AND THE PRESIDENT OF THE U.S.A IS GOING TO SEND THEM SOMEONE TO DELIVER THEM FROM THE HANDS OF THEIR ENEMIES, IT IS NOT EXPECTED THAT BUSH WOULD SEND HIS SON TO DO IT, IT ASSUMED THAT HE WOULD SEND SOMEONE OF A LOWER RANK. THAT’S WHY BEFORE CHRIST CAME HE WAS KNOWN ONLY AS THE MESSIAH. GOD OR THE SON OF GOD IS NO WHERE CONTAINED IN THE DEFINITION OF THE

18
WORD, IN THE ARAMAIC LANGUAGE ( MESSIAH IS MESHIHA, HEBREW IT IS MASHIHA BOTH OF WHICH MEAN “ANOINTED” WHICH MEANS TO BE CHOSEN BY OR AS IF BY DIVINE ELECTION). AS INFLATED AS THE PHARISEES AND SCRIBES WERE BEFORE THE COMING OF CHRIST THERE IS A CHANCE THEY THOUGHT ONE OF THEM WOULD BE ELECTED THROUGH DIVINE GUIDANCE TO BE THE MESSIAH OR THAT HE WOULD BE CHOSEN BY THEM (THIS IS NOT A CLAIM BUT A THOUGHT). THE NEXT VERSE TELLS US IT (THE MYSTERY OF THE FELLOWSHIP) WAS NOT KNOWN.

EPHESIANS 3:5 “Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit”
THIS NEXT VERSE IS VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT 1) LETS US KNOW WHERE OUR SALVATION COMES FROM, 2) WHO MAY ALSO BE SAVED (THE GENTILES [NON- JEWS]), 3) AND BY WHAT MEANS WE MAY FIND THIS OUT. NOTICE ABOVE IT SAYS “WHEN YE READ” SO PAUL UNDOUBTEDLY KNEW NOT ALL WOULD HEAR THE TRUTH AS IT WAS SPOKEN BY THE SPIRIT THROUGH HIM AT THAT PARTICULAR TIME, SOME WOULD HAVE TO READ THE SCRIPTURES TO FIND OUT. LIKE FOR INSTANCE PEOPLE AFTER HIS DEATH.

EPHESIANS 3:6 “That the 2) Gentiles should be fellow heirs , and of the same body, and partake of 1) his promise in Christ 3) by the gospel :” EPHESIANS 3:9 “And to mak e all men SEE what is the fellowship of the myster y , which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God , who create d ALL things by Jesus Christ ;”
HERE WE LEARN WITHOUT A SHADOW OF DOUBT THAT JESUS CHRIST CREATED ALL THINGS, HE CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH, HE CREATED MAN, THE LIGHT AND THE DARKNESS (TIME), THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, AND HE EVEN CREATED AND SANCTIFIED AND HOWLOWED THE SEVENTH DAY…SATURDAY.

COLLOSIANS 1:13 - 15 “Who hath delivere d us from the power of darkn ess, and hath translat e d us into the kingdo m of his dear Son : In whom we have rede m p tion through his blood, even the forgiven ess of sins : Who is the image of the invisible God , the first born of every creatur e.”
GOD IS MIRRORED IN JESUS CHRIST; CHRIST IS THE VISIBLE IMAGE OF GOD . THIS NEXT VERSE SPEAKS AGAIN OF JESUS CHRIST.

COLLOSIANS 1:16 “For by him were all things create d , that are in the heave n , and that are in the earth , VISIBLE and INVISIBLE, wheth er they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or pow er s: ALL things were create d BY him, and FOR him .”
SO WHAT ELSE DOES PAUL TEACH US ABOUT THE MYSTERY OF THE FELLOWSHIP OF GOD? THE ANSWER IS THAT WE HAVE DIRECT ACCESS TO HIM, THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. WE NEED NO MEDIATOR BETWEEN US AND CHRIST IN ORDER TO BE SAVED AND OUR SINS FORGIVEN. PAUL GOES ON TO EXPLAIN THIS. SCRIPTURE PROVES THIS.

19 EPHESIANS 3:11- 12 “According to the purpose which he purpos e d in Christ Jesus our Lord : In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of Him. ”
THIS NOT ONLY TELLS US THAT BY FAITH WE HAVE ACCESS TO CHRIST, BUT; WITH BOLDNESS WE CAN BE CONFIDENT ABOUT OUR DIRECT ACCESS TO HIM; WE NEED NOT QUESTION THAT ACCESS AS LONG AS WE HAVE FAITH IN CHRIST. SO HOW DOES “THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY” OPPOSE THE MYSTERY OF THE FELLOWSHIP OF GOD? LETS FIND OUT THROUGH SCRIPTURE, IT FIRST BEHOOVES US TO FIND OUT WHERE INIQUITY FIRST STARTED. SO LET US NOW LOOK TO SCRIPTURE TO FIND THIS OUT. INIQUITY MEANS “WICKEDNESS OR GROSS INJUSTICE”

ISAIAH 14:12 - 14 “How art thou fallen O Lucifer , son of the morning!

How art thou cut down to the groun d, which didst weake n the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart , I will exalt my throne above the stars of God : I will sit also upon the mount of the congreg a tion , in the sides of the north: I will ascen d above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High .”
HERE WE DISCOVER THAT LUCIFER HAS DECIDED THAT HE 1) WANTS TO BE ABOVE HIS CREATOR 2) WANTS TO BE WORSHIPPED AS GOD, 3) WANTS TO SIT UPON THE MOUNT OF THE CONGREGATION IN THE SIDES OF THE NORTH AND 4) DECLARES HE WILL BE LIKE THE MOST HIGH. ONE VERY INTERESTING POINT HERE IS HE SAYS UPON THE MOUNT OF THE CONGREGATION, NOT ON A MOUNT OF A CONGREGATION . HE IS SPECIFIC. HE WANTS TO BE WORSHIPPED BY MAN, GODS CREATION. HE CAN ONLY DO THIS BY DECEPTION. HE HAS TO DECIEVE MAN INTO BELIEVING HE IS WORSHIPPING GOD WHEN IN FACT HE IS WORSHIPPING, SATAN. HE HAS TO ESTABLISH A FALSE SYSTEM OF BELIEF, HIS OWN RELIGEON. HE SEEKS TO OBTAIN THAT WHICH IS NOT RIGHTLY HIS THROUGH THEFT. HOW ELSE COULD HE DECIEVE MAN EXCEPT THROUGH SELF EXALTATION? THE WORD “CONGREGATION” HAS SOME VERY INTERESTING DEFINITIONS IN THE DICTIONARY (WEBSTERS COLLEGIATE). I WILL GIVE THEM ALL TO YOU. FROM WEBSTER’S NINTH NEW COLLEGIATE DICTIONARY 1990 CONGREGATION “1 a: an asse mbly of persons: GATHERING: esp.: an asse mbly of persons met for worship and religious instruction. b: a religious community: as (1): an organized body of believers in a particular locality (2): a Roman Catholic religious institute with only simple vows (3): a group of monasteries forming an independent subdivision of an order 2: the act or an instance of congregating or bringing together: the state of being congregated 3: a body of cardinals and officials forming an administrative division of the papal curia THE PAPAL CURIA IN CASE YOU’R CURIOUS IS THE BODY OF CONGREGATIONS, TRIBUNALS, AND OFFICES THROUGH WHICH THE POPE GOVERNS THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. ON A SIDE NOTE, ISN’T IT INTERESTING HOW, OUT OF THE 7 DEFINITIONS THERE ARE, THINGS RELATING TO THE PAPACY AROSE 3 TIMES. ESPECIALLY AFTER IT’S BEEN PROVEN THAT THE PAPACY IS THE BEAST OF THE SEA OF REVELATION 13. NOW THAT WE ARE AWARE OF HOW SATAN PLANS TO DECIEVE THE

20
WORLD LET US LOOK AT THE METHOD BEHIND HIS MADNESS, THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY. PAUL DID NOT WANT TO CAUSE A PANICKED UPROAR AMONG THE PEOPLE OR MISLEAD THEM INTO BELIEVING THAT CHRIST WAS COMING AGAIN WITHIN THEIR LIFESPAN. SO HE GAVE THEM AN INSIGHT AS TO WHAT MUST HAPPEN FIRST. PAUL WARNS US OF THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY IN THE BIBLE SO LETS TAKE A LOOK AT SCRIPTURE. 2THESSALONIANS 2:1- 3 “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of the Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there be a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.

FROM “THE ANTICHRIST IS HERE” BY COLIN AND RUSSEL STANDISH “While the term antichrist is sparingly used in the Scriptures, this apostate power is vividly described in the Bible. Paul uses the terms “man of sin” and “son of perdition”. He pinpoints the appe ar a nce of antichrist as occurring prior to the second coming of Christ.” IN THE NEXT VERSE SCRIPTURE GIVES AN INSIGHT AS TO THE DESCRIPTION OF WHAT THAT “SON OF PERDITION” WILL DO.

2THESSALONIANS 2:4 “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God , or that is worshipped, so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. ”
NOTICE HOW THIS FITS PERFECTLY WITH ISAIAH 14:12 - 14. AS WE LEARNED EARLIER, SATAN HAS TO ESTABLISH A FALSE SYSTEM OF BELIEF, ONE IN WHOSE DOCTRINES, DIRECTLY OPPOSE THE WORD OF GOD (HOLY BIBLE) BUT SHARE ENOUGH SIMILARITIES TO DECIEVE EVEN THE VERY ELECT. SO THE QUESTION IS HOW, CAN HE ESTABLISH ENOUGH CREDIBILTY TO DECIEVE DOCTORS AND HIGHLY EDUCATED THEOLOGIANS, AND PASTORS, AS WELL AS THE MASSES? THE ANSWER IS 1) SATAN HAS TO CREATE A FALSE LINEAGE THAT REACHES BACK TO THE TIME OF CHRIST 2) IT WOULD HAVE TO BE ESTABLISHED AFTER THE CRUCIFIXTION 3) IT WOULD HAVE TO CLOSELY PARALLEL TRUTH YET LEAD AWAY FROM IT AND YET SHARE SOME CHARACTERISTICS OF IT. 4) IT WOULD HAVE TO INCORPORATE THE BIBLE, YET BE BELIEVED TO BE ABOVE IT (SO AS NOT TO BE BROUGHT DOWN BY IT) 5) IT WOULD HAVE TO BE SEEN AS A FORM OF CHRISTIANITY SINCE CHRISTIANITY IS BASED AROUND JESUS CHRIST (AND SINCE THE SPIRIT OF SATAN IS THE ANTICHRIST) WE FIND THAT THE APOSTLE JOHN WARNS US OF THIS.

1 JOHN 2:18- 19 “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come , even now are there many antichrists ; whereb y we know that it is the last time. They went out from us ; but they were not of us : for if they had been of us , they

21 would no doubt have continued with us : but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.”
THE PAPACY WITHOUT A DOUBT MATCHES ALL 5 OF THESE CRITERIA, MORE THAN ANY OTHER RELIGION ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. FROM “THE PAPACY” CHAPTER VI “APOSTOLICITY, OR PETER’S PRIMACY” BY J.A. WYLIE …(WHO IS CONSIDERED ONE OF THE FOREMOST AUTHORITIES IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD CONCERNING THE PAPACY) “Seated on the throne of the Caesars, and drawing the peculiar

doctrines of their creed, and the peculiar rites of their worship, from the fount of the pagan mytholog y, the Roman pontiffs have neverthele s s sought to persuade the world that they are the succes s ors of the apostles, and that they wield their authority and inculcate (teach by frequent repetitions) their doctrines . Apostolicity is a peculiar and prominent claim of Rome. Protestants lay claim to apostolicity in the sense of holding the doctrine of the apostles; but the Popes of Rome assert an uninterrupted lineal descent from the apostle Peter , and on the ground of this suppose d lineal succes si on they sustain themselv e s the heirs of the powers and functions of Peter. The doctrine held by the Church of Rome on this head is briefly as follows: - - That Christ constituted Peter the prince of the apostles and the head of the Church; that he raised him to this high dignity when he said to him, “Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church.” “Jesus saith unto him, feed my sheep;” that Christ in these words committed to Peter the care of the whole Church, pastors as well as people; that Rome was the seat of this bishoprick of Peter; that the popes succeed ed him in his see, and, in virtue of this succe ss ion, inherited all the royalties and jurisdiction, the functions and virtues, with which Peter became invested when Christ address ed him in the words we have quoted; that this “mystic oil” has flowed down through the “golden pipes,”—the popes, - - - to our day; that it resides in all its fullnes s in the present occupant of Peters chair; and that it is thence diffused by innumerable lesser pipes, formed by the bishop s and priests, to the remotest extremities of the Roman Catholic world, vivifying and sanctifying all its members, giving authority to all its priests, and validity and efficacy to all their official acts .” The two main reason s assigned by Dens why the Roman Church is termed apostolic are, first , That “the doctrine delivered by the apostles is the same which she has always held, and will continue to hold ;” and second , Because that Church “posses s e s a lawful and uninterrupted succes sion of bishops, especially in the chair of Peter.” “Messiah founded the kingdom of his holy Church in Judea,” says Dr. Milner , “and chose his apostles to propagate it throughout the earth, over whom he appointed Simon as the centre of union and head pastor, and changing his name into that of

22 PETER or ROCK; adding, ‘On this rock I will build my Church.’ Thus dignified, St. Peter first established his see at Antioch, the head of city of Asia; whence he sent his disciple St. Mark to establish and govern the see of Alexandria, the head city of Africa. He afterwards remo v e d his own see to Rome, the capital of Europe and the world. Here, having with St. Paul sealed the gospel with his blood, he transmitted his prerogative to St. Linus, from whom it descended in succes sion to St. Cletus and St. Clement.” In Dr. Challoner’s Grounds of the Catholic Doctrine, as contained in the profession of faith published by Pope Pius IV, it asserted “that the Church of Christ must be apostolical by a succes sion of pastors, and a lawful mission derived from the apostles;” and when it is asked “how do you prove this?” it is answered; 1 st , “because only those who can derive their lineage from the apostles are the heirs of the apostles! And, consequ ently, they alone can claim the right to the Scriptures, to the administration of the sacraments, or any share in the pastoral ministry: it is their proper inheritance, which they have receive d from the apostles, and the apostles from Christ.” “Her [Catholic Church] pastors, says Keenan, are the only pastors on earth who can trace their mission from priest to bishop and from bishop to pope, back through every century, until they trace that mission to the apostles.” This is a vital point with Rome. The primacy of Peter is her corner- stone; and if that is removed, the whole fabric tumbles into ruin. It reasonable then to ask some proof of that long claim of facts by which she [Catholic Church] attempts to link the humble fishermen with the more than imperial pontiffs. We are entitled to demand that the Church of Rome produce conclusiv e incontrovertible proof of the following points:- - That 1)Christ constituted Peter prince of the apostles and head of the whole Church ; 2) that Peter went to Rome , and there established his see ; 3) that, dying at Rome, he transmitted to his succes s ors in his charge the rights and prerogative s of his sovereignty ; and that, 4) these have been handed down through an unbroken series of bishops, every one of whom posse s s e d and exercised Peter’s powers and prerogative s . If the Church fails in establishing any ONE of these points, she FAILS as regards to the whole. The loss of one link in this chain is as fatal as the loss of all. But alas for Rome! Not one of the positions above stated has she proved to be true, and not a few of them can be show n to be false [which means A LOT can be proven false] . The words of our Lord to Peter, already quoted, the anchor by which Rome endeavors to fasten the ves sel of her Church to the rock of Christianity: “Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” As it happens that, in the original text, the term Peter and the term rock closely resemble each other, the Church of Rome has taken advantage of this,

23 dexterousl y, and by a kind of sleight of hand, to substitute the one for the other, and thus to read the passage substantially as follow s:- - Thou art Peter; and upon thee, Peter, will I build my Church. We look upon such feats of interpretation much as we gaze upon the feats of the juggler. Who but the Roman doctors could have evolved from this plain passage a whole race of popes? Why, even with the aid of papal spectacles, or tradition, which disco v ers so many wonderful things in Scripture never seen by the man who examine s it simply with the eyes of his understanding, do we fail to make out this sens e from the passage? For the opinion of the fathers [of the Catholic Church] on the words of our Lord to Peter is directly opposed to the interpretation which the Church of Rome has put upon them; and every priest swears at his ordination that he “will not interpret the Scriptures but, according to unanimou s consent of the fathers.” Peter but a moment before made his great confes sion, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And says Poole, in his examination of the Churches infallibility, “The fathers generally understood this rock to be, not Peters person, but his confes sion, or Christ, as confes s ed by him. Vide St. Cyril, Hilary, Hierom, Ambrose, Basil, and Austin, who are proved by Moulins, in his discourse entitled ‘The Novelty of Popery,’ to have held this opinion.” Of the same sentiments were Chrysosto m, Theodoret, Origen, and others. Here, then we leave priests of Rome taking a solem n oath at the ordination that they will not interpret Scripture except with the unanimou s consent of the fathers , and yet interpreting the passage in a sense directly contrary to the concurrent opinion of the fathers. What, then, are we to understand by the “rock” on which Christ declared that he would build his Church? Whether we are to understand Peter, who afterwards thrice denied him, or the great truth which Peter had just confes s e d, even the eternal deity of Christ? The fathers, we have seen, interpreted “this rock” of Christ himself, or of the confes sion of his deity by Peter; and so will every man, we venture to affirm, who is competent to form an opinion, and has no object to serve but the discov ery of truth. Our Lord, knowing the time of his death to be nigh, thought it well, as they journeyed onward, to direct the current of the conversation to topics relating to the nature and foundation of that kingdom which was so shortly to be visibly erected in the world. “Whom do men say that I, the Son of man am?” said he to his disciples. To this interrogatory (formal question or inquiry), the disciples replied and enumeration of the various opinions held respecting him by the people at large. “But,” said he, directing his question specially to the disciples, - - “whom do ye say that I am? ” and Simon Peter answered and said, “Thou art the Christ the Son of the living God.” Pleased to find his true character so clearly understood, so firmly believed in, and so

24 frankly avow ed, our Lord turned to Peter and said, “Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona; for flesh and blood hath not revealed IT unto thee. ” What IT? Unquestionably the truth he had just ackno wledge d, that Jesus is “the Christ, the Son of the living God,”—a truth which lay at the foundation of his mission, which lay at the foundation of all his reaching, and, by conseque nc e, at the foundation of that syste m of truth commo nl y called his kingdom, which he was to erect in the world, and which therefore, was a fundamental truth, if any truth ever merited to be called such ; for unles s it be true that Jesus was “the Christ, the Son of the living God,” there is nothing true in Christianity, - - it is all a fable . We must bear in mind, then, in proceeding to the next clause, that it was on this truth, which both Papist and Protestant must confes s to be the very first truth in Christianity, that the minds of our Lord and his disciples were now undividedly fixed . “And I say unto thee,” continues our Lord, “that thou art Peter; and upon this rock will I build my Church.” Upon what rock? Upon Peter, say Romanists, grounding their interpretation upon the similarity of sound, “Tu es Petrus, et super hanc petram .” Upon the truth had Peter just confess e d, say Protestants, grounding their principles of sense, and the reason of the thing. “Upon this rock,” says our Lord, not upon thee , the rock, but upon this rock, namely, the truth you have now enunciated in the words “the Christ the Son of the living God ,”—a truth which has been a matter of special revelation to thee, the belief in which has made you truly bless ed, and a truth which holds a place so fundamental and essential in the gospel kingdom, that it may be well termed “a rock. ” What is the Church? Is it not an association of men holding certain truths? The members of the Church are united, not by their belief in certain men, but by their belief in certain principles.”
THIS UNDOUBTEDLY PROVES THAT THE WHOLE FOUNDATIONAL SUPPORT FOR THE SYSTEM OF ROMAN CATHOLICISM IS “THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY” IT HAS ALL OF THE QUALITIES. IT EVEN SAYS IN BIBLE TO BEWARE OF FALSE TEACHERS. 1TIMOTHY 4:1- 3 “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy: having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. PRIESTS ARE FORBIDDEN TO GET MARRIED, AND DURING LENT IT IS A SIN TO EAT MEAT ACCORDING TO THE POPE. MATTHEW 12:25 “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and ever city or house divided against itself cannot stand”

REVELATION 13:5 “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasph e m i e s; and powe r was given unto him to continue forty and two months .”
IN DANIEL WE FIND THAT NEBUCHADNEZZAR SUFFERED 7 LITERAL YEARS OF ILLNESS DANIEL :4:16 “Let his heart be change d from man’s, and let a beast’s

heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him.” REVELATION 11:2 “But the court which is without the tem ple leave out, and meas ure it not; for it given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months” REVELATION 12:14 “And to the wom an there were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wildern ess, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpe nt.” REVELATION 12:6 “And the wom a n fled into the wildern es s, where she hath a place prep a r e d of God, that they should feed her there a thousan d two hundre d and three score days.”
WE KNOW A SCORE IS 20, THE DEFINITION OF WHICH CAN BE FOUND IN THE DICTIONARY. THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED AND THREESCORE DAYS = 126 0 FORTY AND TWO MONTHS = 1260 DAYS (1 month is 30 days) SO HOW DO WE KNOW THAT THERE WERE 30 DAYS CONTAINED IN A MONTH? LET’S LOOK TO THE BIBLE FOR THE ANSWER.

GENESIS 7:11 “In the six hundre dt h year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month , the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windo ws of heaven were opene d up.” GENESIS 8:4 “And the ark reste d in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month , upon the mountains of Arar at.” THIS IS EXACTLY 5 MONTHS THE VERSE BELOW TELLS US HOW MANY DAYS THAT ACTUALLY WAS. GENESIS 7:24 “And the waters prevailed upon the earth and hundred and fifty days .” 30 DAYS * 5 MONTHS =15 0 DAYS

26 42 months =12 6 0 days
EZEKIEL4:6 AND NUMBERS14:34 SHOW US THAT ONE PROPHETIC DAY EQUALS ONE LITERAL YEAR. SO 1260 days = 1260 YEARS JUSTINIAN LEFT ROME TO THE POPE, HE ALONG WITH CONSTANTINE HAD BOTH FELT ROME SHOULD BE THE SEAT OF THE POPE, AS THEY CONSIDERED HIM TO BE THE VICAR OF CHRIST AND HENCE A KING OF KINGS SO TO SPEAK. THE POPE WAS GIVEN FULL CONTROL OF ROME IN 538, AFTER JUSTINIAN THERE WERE NO MORE EMPERORS, HE WAS ONLY THE POPE LEFT TO RULE AS HEAD OVER ALL THE CHURCHES AND JUDGE ALL HERETICS, THIS BEGAN THE DARK AGES AND THE 1260 YEAR REIGN. THE DARK AGES LASTED FROM 538 A.D. – 1798 A.D. IN THE YEAR 1798 NAPOLEANS GENERAL BERTHIER, INVADED ROME CAPTURED THE POPE AND TOOK HIM TO FRANCE, BUT NEVER IN ONE SPOT, THE POPE DIED IN EXILE AWAY FROM ROME. THE PAPACY HAD RULED FOR EXACTLY 1260 YEARS IN WHICH OVER 150,000,00 0 PEOPLE WERE SLAUGHTERED. GOD KEPT HIS WORD ALIVE WITH HIS TWO WITNESSES, AND SOME OF THE MOST COURAGEOUS PEOPLE TO EVER LIVE. WE WILL NOW GET INTO THE TWO WITNESSES, WHO THEY WERE. WE CAN FIND THIS IN THE BIBLE. JOHN 5:36- 37 “But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish , the same works that I do, bear witness of me , that the Father hath sent me. And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me . Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape .”

JOHN 5:39 “Search the Scriptures ; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. ”
REVELATION 11:2- 3 “But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months . And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they shall prophes y a thousand two hundre d and three score days, clothed in sackcloth.” ISN’T INTERESTING HOW THIS 1260 DAYS KEEPS POPPING UP, ESPECIALLY SINCE WE ALREADY KNOW THAT THE 1260 DAYS LASTS FROM 538 A.D.1798 A.D. SO WHAT HAPPENS DURING THAT PERIOD? THE BIBLE WAS NEVER ALOUD IN THE HANDS OF THE COMMON PEOPLE, AND VERY FEW WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO READ IT IN THE FIRST PLACE. YOU SEE THE CHURCH DID NOT SEE IT FIT FOR ANYONE TO INTERPRET THE SCRIPTURES BUT THEM, SO THEY NEVER HAD IT TRANSLATED INTO THE LANGUAGE OF THE PEOPLE SUCH AS FRENCH, ITALIAN, ENGLISH, SPANISH ETC. IN FACT BIBLES WERE FORBIDDEN, AND FOR SOMEONE TO PREACH FROM IT THAT WAS NOT ORDAINED BY THE PAPACY BROUGHT DEATH BY BURNING AT THE STAKE. TORTURE USUALLY CAME FIRST (MOLTEN METAL DOWN THE THROAT ETC.). BUT GOD ALWAYS HAS CHARGE OVER HIS WORD AND WOULD NOT ALLOW HIS PEOPLE TO REMAIN IN IGNORANCE. THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT WERE THE TWO WITNESSES, WE WILL NOW LEARN ABOUT THERE JOURNEY.

REVELATION 13:7 “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcom e them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”

HERE IS AN EXCERPT FROM J.A. WYLIE’S EXHAUSTIVE STUDY ON THE MATTER. FROM CHAPTER’S 1 AND 13

“The History of the Waldenses” CHAPTER 1 “The Waldenses—Their Valleys” BY J.A. WYLIE “It was the ninth century, and superstitious beliefs and idolatrous rites were overspreading the Church, when Claudius, Bishop of Turin, who was deeply imbued with the spirit of Augustine, set himself to arrest the growing corruption with all the fervour of a living faith, and the vigour of a courageous and powerful intellect. To the battle for the purity of doctrine he joined that for the independence of the Churches of Lombardy. Even in Claude’s day they remained free, although many Churches more remote from Rome had already been subjugate d by that all- conquering power. The Ambrosian Liturgy was still used in the cathedral of Milan, and the Augustinian doctrine continued to be preached from many of the pulpits of Lombardy and Piedmont. This independe nce of Rome, and this greater purity of faith and worship, these Churches mainly owed to the three Apostolic men whose names adorn their annals— Ambrose, Vigilantius, and Claude. When Claude went to his grave, about the year 840, the battle, although not altogether dropped, was but languidly maintained.” CONCLUSION FOLLOWS, TO EXPLAIN THE ENTIRE ACCOUNT WOULD BE OUT OF THE SCOPE OF THIS PAPER. “Their greatest enemies, Claude Seyssel of Turin (1517), and Reynerius the Inquisitor (1250), have admitted their antiquity, and stigmatised them as "the most dangerous of all heretics, because the most ancient." DANIEL 7:21 “I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevaile d against them.”
HERE IS ONE OF THE WORST ACCOUNTS PAINFUL AS IT IS TO READ IT MUST BE, IN ORDER TO SEE THE TRUE FACE OF WHO WE ARE DEALING WITH.

FROM “THE HISTORY OF THE WALDENSE” The Great Massacre CH.13 “The throne of Savoy was at this time filled by Charles Emmanuel II., a youth of fifteen. He was a prince of mild and huma ne disposition; but he was counselled and ruled by his mother, the Duchess Christina, who had been appointed regent of the kingdom during his minority. That mother was sprung of a race which has ever been noted for its dissimulation, its cruelty, and its bigoted devotion to Rome. She was the daughter of Henry IV. and Mary de Medici, and grandda ughter of that Catherine de Medici whose name stands so conspicuously connected with a tragedy which has received, as it merited, the execration of mankind—the St. Bartholomew Massacre.
THE WALDENSES DID MUCH TO TRY TO REACH A PEACEFUL AGREEMENT WITH THE POPE, BUT IT WAS TO NO AVAIL. CONTINUING ON - - - - -

At last the blow fell with the sudden crash of the thunderbolt. At four o’clock on the morning of Saturday, the 24th of April, 1655, the signal was

28 given from the castle - hill of La Torre. [So says Leger, who was an eyewitness of these horrors]. But who shall rehearse the tragedy that followed? "It is Cain a second time," says Monastier, "shedding the blood of his brother Abel" [Monastier, p. 270]. On the instant a thousand assassins began the work of death. Dismay, horror, agony, woe in a moment overspread the Valleys of Lucerna and Angrogna. Though Pandemonium had sent forth its fiends to riot in crime and revel in blood, they could not have outdone the soldiers of the Propaganda. Though the victims climbed the hills with what speed they could, the murderer was on their track. The torrents as they rolled down from the heights soon began to be tinged with blood. Gleams of lurid light burst out through the dark smoke that was rolling through the vales, for a priest and monk accompanied each party of soldiers, to set fire to the houses as soon as the inmates had been dispatched. Alas! what sounds are those that repeatedly strike the ear? The cries and groans of the dying were echoed and re- echoed from the rocks around, and it seemed as if the mountains had taken up a wailing for the slaughter of their children. "Our Valley of Lucerna," exclaims Leger, "which was like a Goshen, was now converted into a Mount Etna, darting forth cinders and fire and flames. The earth resembled a furnace, and the air was filled with a darkness like that of Egypt, which might be felt, from the smoke of towns, villages, temples, mansions, granges, and buildings, all burning in the flames of the Vatican" [Leger, part ii., p. 113]. The soldiers were not content with the quick dispatch of the sword, they invented new and hitherto unhear d - of modes of torture and death. No man at this day dare write in plain words all the disgusting and horrible deeds of these men; their wickedness can never be all known, because it never can be all told. From the awful narration of Leger, we select only a few instances; but even these few, however mildly stated, grow, without our intending it, into a group of horrors. Little children were torn from the arms of their mothers, clasped by their tiny feet, and their heads dashed against the rocks; or were held between two soldiers and their quivering limbs torn up by main force. Their mangled bodies were then thrown on the highways or fields, to be devoured by beasts. The sick and the aged were burned alive in their dwellings. Some had their hands and arms and legs lopped off, and fire applied to the severed parts to staunch the bleeding and prolong their suffering. Some were flayed alive, some were roasted alive, some disembowelled; or tied to trees in their own orchards, and their hearts cut out. Some were horribly mutlitated, and of others the brains were boiled and eaten by these cannibals. Some were fastened down into the furrows of their own fields, and ploughed into the soil as men plough manure into it. Others were buried alive. Fathers were marched to death with the heads of their sons suspende d round their necks. Parents were compelled to look on while their children were first outraged, then massacred, before being themselves permitted to die. But here we must stop. We cannot proceed farther in Leger’s awful narration. There come vile, abominable, and monstro us deeds, utterly and overwhelmingly

29 disgusting, horrible and fiendish, which we dare not transcribe. The heart sickens, and the brain begins to swim. "My hand trembles," says Leger, "so that I scarce can hold the pen, and my tears mingle in torrents with my ink, while I write the deeds of these children of darkness—blacker even than the Prince of Darkness himself" [Leger, part ii., p. 111]. MATTHEW 10:22 “AND YE SHALL BE HATED OF ALL MEN FOR MY NAMES
SAKE; BUT HE THAT ENDURETH TO THE END SHALL BE SAVED.”

Aubign’e History of the Reformation of the Sixteenth Century “If you shall not receive breth ren who bring you peace, you shall receive enemies who bring you war. If you will not unite with us in showing the Saxon’s the way of life, you shall receive from them the stroke of death. ” J.A. Wylie History of the Waldenses b.16 ch.1 “The pope issued a BULL to call upon all members of the church to join the crusade against the heretics, as an incentive it “absolved from all ecclesiastical pains and penalties, general and particular; it release d all who joined the crusade from any oaths they might have taken; it legitimized their title to any property they might have illegally acquired; and promised remission of all their sins to such as should kill any heretic. It annulled all contracts made in favor of Vaudois, ordere d their domestics to abando n them, forbade all perso ns to give them any aid whatever, and empowere d all perso n s to take possession of their property .”
LEGER WAS IN FACT AN EYE WITNESS TO THESE EVENTS. THINGS LIKE THIS WENT ON FOR THE ENTIRE 1260 YEAR PERIOD KNOWN AS THE DARK AGES AND THE INQUISITION. PEOPLE WERE STARTING TO WAKE UP AND SEE WHAT WAS HAPPENING. IF YOU WERE FOUND IN POSSESSION OF A BIBLE, OR PREACHED FROM IT, OR EVEN SPOKE OF IT YOU WOULD BE BURNED AT THE STAKE.IF IT WERE NOT FOR THE VAUDOIS (WALDENSES), JOHN WICKLIFFE, JOHN HUSS AND JEROME (WHO WERE BOTH BURNED AT THE STAKE), ZWINGLE, MARTIN LUTHER, JOHN CALVIN AND OTHER COUNTLESS INDIVIDUALS WORKING TO BRING THE BIBLE TO THE PEOPLE WE WOULD STILL BE IN THE DARK AGES. MAY GOD BLESS THE COUNTLESS PEOPLE THAT SUFFERED FOR OUR SALVATION. ALTHOUGH NOT REMEMBERED BY MOST PEOPLE TODAY IT WAS NOT IN VAIN. SO WHAT DO THE PROTESTANT FATHERS SAY ABOUT THE PAPACY? LET’S FIND OUT, BECAUSE IT SEEMS NOW MANY PROTESTANTS HAVE FORGOTTEN THE TRUTH WHICH CAME FORTH FROM THEIR FOUNDERS AND THE PEOPLE THAT DIED FOR OUR SAKE.

After Pope Gregory came two rival popes each one claiming infallibility, and declaring the other one to be the antichrist. John Wickliffe who preached the gospel to the poor and was hated by the papacy, in a tract which he published called the “Schism of the popes”

30 called upon the people to consider whether these two priests were not speaking the truth in conde m ning each other as the antichrist. “God” said he “would no longer suffer the fiend to reign in only one such priest, but made a division among two, so that men, in Christ’s name may the more easily overcom e them both ” R. Vaughan “Life and opinions of John de Wickliffe” vol.2 pg.6 Martin Luther “There sits the man, of whom the apostle wrote (2THESSALONIANS 2:3- 4) , that will oppose and exalt himself above all that is called God. That man of sin to be revealed, the son of perdition…he suppress e s the law of God and exalts his com mand m e nt s above the commandm e nt s of God . LeRoy Froom, The prophetic Faith of our Fathers, vol.2,pg.281 We here are of the conviction that the papacy is the seat of the true and real antichrist. Ibid, pg.256
John Calvin “I deny him to be the Vicar of Christ ….he is antichrist - - - - I deny him to be the head of the church.” John Calvin Tracts,vol.1 pp.219,220 John Knox “That tyranny which the pope himself has for so many ages exercised over the church, the very antichrist and son of perdition, of whom Paul speaks. The Zurich Letters, p. 199 Philipp Melanchthon “It is most manifest, and true without any doubt, that the Roman pontiff, with his whole order and kingdom, is very antichrist. Likewise, in 2 Thessalonians 2, Paul clearly says the man of sin will rule in the church by exalting himself above the worship of God.” LeRoy Froom, The Prophetic Faith of Our Fathers, vol.1 pp. 296 - 9 Sir Isaac Newton “But it [the papacy] was a kingdom of a different kind from the other ten kingdoms [referred to in Daniel7:7 - 8] ….And such a seer, prophet, and king is the Church of Rome [referring to the little horn of Daniel 7]. Sir Isaac Newton, Observations on the Prophesies p.75 John Wesley “Romish Papacy, he is, in an emphatical sense, the man of sin.” John Wesley, Antichrist and his Ten Kingdoms, p.110 Samuel Lee (a seventh century Rhode Island minister) “It is agreed among all the main lines of the English Church that the Roman pontiff is the antichrist. Samuel Lee, The Cutting Off of Antichrist, p.1

“History reveals that individual Popes had faced "bad times" before, so what was different in 1798 when pope Pius VI was imprisoned, and, being sickly died? After all wasn't Pius VII restored by a concordat with Napoleon a year later? We must realize that not only was the pope taken captive in 1798, but a new set of laws were established. 1798 marks the END of the Popes LEGAL primacy. Napoleon codified a whole new set of laws in 1804. While these laws were codified in 1804, the 1798 "declaration of Independe nce" preceded the Napoleon Code. PLEASE NOTE THAT after the French revolution, an overwhelming number of legal reforms took place. The bills against the Papacy were declared and signed IN 1798.”

JUSTINIAN’S CODE OF LAW BEGAN THE PAPACY’S LEGAL POWER .

THE CODE OF OUR LORD THE MOST SACRED EMPEROR JUSTINIAN.
SECOND EDITION.

BOOK 1.

TITLE 1.

CONCERNING THE MOST EXALTED TRINITY AND THE CATHOLIC FAITH AND PROVIDING THAT NO ONE SHALL DARE TO PUBLICLY OPPOSE THEM.

1. The Emperors Gratian, Valentinian, and Theodosius to the people of the City of Constantinople. We desire that all peoples subject to Our benign Empire shall live under the same religion that the Divine Peter, the Apostle, gave to the Romans, and which the said religion declares was introduced by himself, and which it is well known that the Pontiff Damascus, and Peter, Bishop of Alexandria, a man of apostolic sanctity, embraced; that is to say, in accordance with the rules of apostolic discipline and the evangelical doctrine, we should believe that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit constitute a single Deity, endowed with equal majesty, and united in the Holy Trinity.

(1) We order all those who follow this law to assume the name of Catholic Christians, and considering others as demented and insane, We order that they shall bear the infamy of heresy; and when the Divine vengeance which they merit has been appeased, they shall afterwards be punished in accordance with Our resent men t, which we have acquired from the judgment of Heaven.

Dated at Thessalonica, on the third of the Kalends of March, during the Consulate of Gratian, Consul for the fifth time, and Theodosius.

32 2. The Same Emperors to Eutropius, Praetorian Prefect.

Let no place be afforded to heretics for the conduct of their ceremonies, and let no occasion be offered for them to display the insanity of their obstinate minds. Let all persons know that if any privilege has been fraudulently obtained by means of any rescript whatsoever, by persons of this kind, it will not be valid. Let all bodies of heretics be prevented from holding unlawful assemblies, and let the name of the only and the greatest God be celebrated everywhere, and let the observance of the Nicene Creed, recently trans mitted to Our ancestors, and firmly established by the testimony and practice of Divine Religion, always remain secure.

(1) Moreover, he who is an adherent of the Nicene Faith, and a true believer in the Catholic religion, should be understood to be one [pg. 10] who believes that Almighty God and Christ, the son of God, are one person, God of God, Light of Light; and let no one, by rejection, dishonor the Holy Spirit, whom we expect, and have received from the Supreme Parent of all things, in whom the sentiment of a pure and undefiled faith flourishes, as well as the belief in the undivided substance of a Holy Trinity, which true believers indicate by the Greek word These things, indeed do not require further proof, and should be respected.

(2) Let those who do not accept those doctrines cease to apply the name of true religion to their fraudulent belief; and let them be branded with their open crimes, and, having been removed from the threshhold of all churches, be utterly excluded from them, as We forbid all heretics to hold unlawful assemblies within cities. If, however, any seditious outbreak should be attemp te d, We order them to be driven outside the the walls of the City, with relentless violence, and We direct that all Catholic Churches, throughou t the entire world, shall be placed under the control of the orthod ox bishops who have embraced the Nicene Creed.

Given at Constantinople, on the fourth of the ides of January, under the Consulate of Flavius Eucharius and Flavius Syagrius.

3. The Emperor Martian to Palladius, Praetorian Prefect.

No one, whether he belongs to the clergy, the army, or to any other condition of men, shall, with a view to causing a tumult and giving occasion to treachery, attem p t to discuss the Christian religion publicly in

33 the presence of an assembled and listening crowd; for he commits an injury against the most reverend Synod who publicly contradicts what has once been decided and properly established; as those matters relative to the Christian faith have been settled by the priests who met at Chalcedony by Our order, and are known to be in confor mity with the apostolic explanations and conclusions of the three hundre d and eight Holy Fathers assembled in Nicea, and the hundre d and fifty who met in this Imperial City; for the violators of this law shall not go unpunishe d, because they not only oppose the true faith, but they also profane its venerated mysteries by engaging in contests of this kind with Jews and Pagans. Therefore, if any person who has ventured to publicly discuss religious matters is a member of the clergy, he shall be removed from his order; if he is a member of the army, he shall be degraded; and any others who are guilty of this offence, who are freemen, shall be banished from this most Sacred City, and shall be subjected to the punishment prescribed by law according to the power of the court; and if they are slaves, they shall undergo severest penalty.

Given at Constantinople, on the eighth of the Ides of February, under the consulship of Patricius.

4. John, Bishop of the City of Rome, to his most Illustrious and Merciful Son Justinian. Among the conspicuous reasons for praising your wisdom and gentleness, Most Christian of Emperors, and one which radiates light [pg. 11]as a star, is the fact that through love of the Faith, and actuated by zeal for charity, you, learned in ecclesiastical discipline, have preserved reverence for the See of Rome, and have subjected all things to its authority, and have given it unity. The following precept was communicated to its founder, that is to say, the first of the Apostles, by the mouth of the Lord, namely: "Feed my lambs." This See is indeed the head of all churches, as the rules of the Fathers and the decrees of the Emperors assert, and the words of your most reverend piety testify. It is therefore claimed that what the Scriptures state, namely, "By Me Kings reign, and the Powers dispense justice;" will be accomplishe d in you. For there is nothing which shines with a more brilliant lustre than genuine faith when displayed by a prince, since there is nothing which prevents destruction as true religion does, for as both of them have reference to the Author of Life and Light, they disperse darkness and prevent apostasy. Wherefore, Most Glorious of Princes, the Divine Power is implored by the prayers of all to preserve your piety in this ardor for the Faith, in this devotion of your mind, and in this zeal for true religion, without failure, during your entire existence. For we believe that this is for the benefit of the Holy Churches, as it was written, "The king rules with his lips," and again, "The heart of the King is in the hand of God, and it will incline to

34 whatever side God wishes"; that is to say, that He may confirm your empire, and maintain your kingdoms for the peace of the Church and the unity of religion; guard their authority, and preserve him in that sublime tranquillity which is so grateful to him; and no small change is granted by the Divine Power through whose agency a divided church is not afflicted by any griefs or subject to any reproaches. For it is written, "A just king, who is upon his throne, has no reason to apprehen d any misfortune." We have received with all due respect the evidences of your serenity, through Hypatius and Demetrius, most holy men, my brothers and fellow - bishops, from whose statement s we have learned that you have promulgated an Edict addressed to your faithful people, and dictated by your love of the Faith, for the purpose of overthrowing the designs of heretics, which is in accordance with the evangelical tenets, and which we have confirmed by our authority with the consent of our brethren and fellow bishops, for the reason that it is in confor mity with the apostolic doctrine. The following is the text of the letter of the Emperor Justinian, Victorious, Pious, Happy, Renowned, Triumpha n t, always Augustus, to John, Patriarch, and most Holy Archbishop of the fair City of Rome: With honor to the Apostolic See, and to your Holiness, which is, and always has been remembered in Our prayers, both now and formerly, and honoring your happiness, as is proper in the case of one who is considered as a father, We hasten to bring to the knowledge of Your Holiness everything relating to the condition of the Church, as We have always had the greatest desire to preserve the unity of your Apostolic See, and the condition of the Holy Churches of God, as they [pg. 12] exist at the present time, that they may remain without disturbance or opposition. Therefore, We have exerted Ourselves to unite all the priests of the East and subject them to the See of Your Holiness, and hence the questions which have at present arisen, although they are manifest and free from doubt, and according to the doctrines of your Apostolic See, are constantly firmly observed and preached by all priests, We have still considered it necessary that they should be brought to the attention of Your Holiness. For we do not suffer anything which has reference to the state of the Church, even though what causes difficulty may be clear and free from doubt, to be discussed without being brought to the notice of Your Holiness, because you are the head of all the Holy Churches, for We shall exert Ourselves in every way (as has already been stated), to increase the honor and authority of your See. [pg. 125]

One Hundred and Thirty - First New Constitu tion. The Emperor Justinian to Peter, Most Glorious Imperial Praetorian Prefect.
PREFACE.

35 We enact the present law with reference to ecclesiastical rules and privileges and other subjects in which holy churches and religious establishme nt s are intruste d. Chapter I. Concerning Four Holy Councils.

Therefore We order that the sacred, ecclesiastical rules which were adop ted and confirmed by the four Holy Councils, that is to say, that of the three hundre d and eighteen bishops held at Nicea, that of the one hundred and fifty bishops held at Constantinople, the first one of Ephesus, where Nestorius was condemn ed, and the one assembled at Chalcedon, where Eutyches and Nestorius were anathe ma tized, shall be considered as laws. We accept the dogmas of these four Councils as sacred writings, and observe their rules as legally effective. Chapter II. Concerning The Precedence of Partriarchs.

Hence, in accordance with the provisions of these Councils, We order that the Most Holy Pope of ancient Rome shall hold the first rank of all the Pontiffs, but the Most Blessed Archbishop of Constantinople, or New Rome, shall occupy the second place after the Holy Apostolic See of ancient Rome, which shall take precedence over all other sees.

NEXT PAGE COVER’S BERTHIER’S NEW CONSTITUTION WHICH ENDED THE LEGAL REIGN OF THE PAPACY IN 1798, WHICH HAD RULED EXACTLY 1260 YEARS.

1. PAPAL GOVERNMENT SUPPRESSED, REVERTING TO PEOPLE.—The famous
Bill No. 8, in parallel French and Italian, dated Pluviose 27 (February 15), is a formal declaration by "Citizen Alexander Berthier, General in Chief." In this he makes the announce me nt:

2. “The Roman people are now again entered into the rights of sovereignty, declaring their independenc e, posses sing the government of ancient Rome, constituting a Roman Republic. "The General- in- chief of the French army in Italy declares, in the name of the French Republic, that he acknowledge s the Roman Republic

36
independent, and that the same is under the special protection of the French army. "The General- in- chief of the army acknowledges, in the name of the French Republic, the provisional government which has been propose d by the sovereign people. "In consequenc e, every other temporal authority emanating from the old government of the Pope, is suppress ed, and it shall no more exercise any function.... "The Roman Republic, acknowledge d by the French Republic, comprehends all the country that remained under the temporal authority of the Pope, after the treaty of Campo - Formio.

"ALEXANDRE BERTHIER." ROMAN POPULACE CASTS OFF PAPAL YOKE. —Bill No. 9, likewise of the same date (February 15, 1798), titled "Acte du Pepule [peuple] Souverain" (An Act of the Sovereign People) —certified and signed by three notaries, and confirmed by General Berthier—makes this clear- cut declaration:

The people of Rome, long tired of the monstrous despotism under which they groaned have on various occasions tried to shake off this yoke. The magic of public opinion and political interests combined into a mighty force have not allowed their efforts to succeed. And a despotism of that nature become s the more insulting the more its weaknes s and arrogance corresponds to its misery. But at last, the people, fearing to be exposed to an hideous anarchy and in despair to fall under even a worse tyranny have mustered all their courage in order to evade these sinister consequenc e s and to reclaim the primitive rights of their sovereignty. Assembled in the presence of the Eternal and the whole universe, they solemnly and unanimously declare to have had no part whatever in the crimes and assassinations committed by the government against the French Republic and her nation. They disapprove of these crimes and detest their originators and invoke upon them (vow them) eternal shame. They further have suppresse d, abolished and crushed the political, economic, and civil authorities of the former Roman government and have constituted thems elve s a free and independent sovereignty in taking up all executive and legislative powers which its legitimate representative s shall exercise according to the immortal rights of man based on the principles of truth, justice, liberty, and equality. They have declared that their desire is that no attack against religion or the spiritual authority of the pope should be made and that they reserve to themselv e s the right by their representatives to provide for the comfortable sustenance [of the Pope] and to ensure the safety of his person by a national guard . "The present act has been signed by several thousand persons who, with many others, have read, approved and confirmed it by their acclamations on the Capitol. On the 27. Pluviose in the 6. year of the Republic."

37
THE WOUND WAS HEALED WITH LATERAN CONCORDAT OF 1929 Newspapers at the time even proclaimed the "wound" to the Vatican as "healed". Here on the left is an article from the February 12th, 1929 edition of the San Francisco Chronicle .

NOTICE THE TOP LEFT CORNER. Rev 13:3 “And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.”
Even Catholic newspapers reporting the event declared the "wound" to be healed by the Lateran Treaty. Here is a page from The Catholic Advocate , published in Australia on April 18th, 1929 .

THE ABOVE ARTICLE IS FROM THE PAPER ON PAGE 33 I HAVE EXPANDED IT FROM THE PICTURE TO MAKE IT EASIER TO READ. THE LOCATION OF THEM IS IN THE CENTER ABOVE THE PHOTO OF THE LATERAN PALACE.

The agreement signed 70 years ago by Benito Mussolini and Cardinal Gasparri, on behalf of the King Victor Emmanuel III and Pope Pius XI, restored the full diplomatic and political power of the Holy See of Rome . And today, all the world indeed "wonders" at the revived power of the Roman Catholic Church, the epitome of Church and State combined and a major player in global politics.
SO HOW DOES THIS FIT IN TO OUR DAY AND AGE? READ PART 8 TO FIND OUT.

39
THIS IS WHEN WE WILL OVERLAP INTO THE PRESENT DAY, AND ACTUALLY SEE HOW THE BEAST OF THE EARTH WILL MAKE AN IMAGE TO THE FIRST BEAST OF REVELATION 13.

THE BEAST OF THE EARTH
THE IMAGE TO THE BEAST THE MARK OF THE BEAST
PART 8 REVELATION 13:11 “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.”
REMEMBER THE BEAST OF THE SEA OF REVELATION 13 ROSE UP OUT OF THE SEA, WHICH IS TO BE INTERPRETED AS DENSELY POPULATED AREA’S. WE CAN ALSO LOOK TO SCRIPTURE FOR THIS AS WELL TO FIND A CLUE. REVELATION 17:15 “And he saith unto me, the waters which thou sawest where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes and nations, and tongues.” AS WELL AS WE KNOW FROM HISTORY THAT THE PAPACY (BEAST OF THE SEA) AROSE OUT OF A MULTITUDE OF NATIONS, AND PEOPLES TEN TO BE EXACT. THE OPPOSITE OF THE SEA WOULD BE THE EARTH, AND SEEING AS THE SEA REPRESENTS DENSELY POPULATED AREA’S THE EARTH WOULD REPRESENT JUST THE OPPOSITE, A LAND WITHOUT AN ESTABLISHED NATION, A LAND NOT DENSELY POPULATED WITH PEOPLE. WHILE THERE WERE TRIBES OF INDIANS IN AMERICA THEY WERE BUT TRIBES THEY WERE NOT A FORMED NATION, AS WELL AS THEY DID NOT DENSELY POPULATE THE LAND. THE BEAST OF THE EARTH CAN ONLY REPRESENT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. IN THE FOLLOWING SCRIPTURE WE WILL SEE OTHER SIILARITIES.

REVELATION 13:11 “and he had two horns like a lamb”
THE UNITED STATES WAS THE VERY FIRST RULING POWER TO ESTABLISH SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE, WHICH WAS A MOST IMPORTANT THING. AMERICA WAS DISCOVERED IN 1492, DURING THIS TIME THE PAPACY STILL RULED EUROPE, AND MANY WERE LOOKING FOR A WAY TO ESCAPE PERSECUTION, OVER THEIR RELIGEOUS BELIEFS. MANY FOUND THE WAY TO ESCAPE PERSECUTION WAS TO FLEE THE COUNTRY. ONE OF THE MAIN CONCERNS OF OUR FOUNDING FOREFATHERS HAD WAS ONE TO ESCAPE THE HOLD ENGLAND HAD OVER THEM, FOR ENGLAND ROYALTY WAS AGAIN TAKING DIRECTION FROM THE POPE. THE SECOND CONCERN THEY HAD WAS TO ENSURE THE PEOPLE OF THE NEWFOUND AMERICA WOULD NOT SUFFER THE RELIGEOUS PERSECUTIONS THAT THEY HAD BEEN THROUGH. THE ONLY WAY THEY SAW THAT HAPPENING WAS KEEPING CHURCH AND STATE SEPARATED, IF THEY WERE SEPARATED THE RELIGEOUS DOGMAS OF ANY ONE RELIGEON COULD NOT BE ENFORCE BY GOVERNMENT POWERS. BUT TO KNOW AVAIL LAWS WOULD STILL BE FORCEFULLEY INACTED. HERE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE LAWS INACTED IN THE VIRGINIA COLONY’S

REVELATION 13:11 “, and he spake as a dragon”
Laws and Documents relating to religion in early Virginia, 1606 - 1660

40 “April 10, 1606 [In a preamble to letters patent for Sir Thomas Gates, Sir George Somers, and others, for establishing colonies in Virginia, a year before the Jamestown settlement was founded, King James I made clear the religious importance of such a colonizing effort. The opportu nity to bring the Christian religion, and thereby "civility," to the native inhabitants was considered especially valuable.] We greatly commen ding, and graciously accepting of, their desires for the furtherance of so noble a work, which may, by the providence of Almighty God, hereafter tend to the glory of his divine Majesty, in propagating of Christian religion to such people, as yet live in darkness and miserable ignorance of the true knowledge and worship of God, and may in time bring the infidels and savages, living in those parts, to human civility, and to a settled and quiet government….” Hening, I, 58 .
ALL BUSINESSES WERE REQUIRED TO CLOSE DOWN. LAWS WERE ENFORCED FOR THE OBSERVANCE OF SUNDAY, PEOPLE WERE REQUIRED TO ATTEND CHURCH ON THAT DAY, AND PAY TITHE, AS WELL AS A PLETHORA OF OTHER GUIDELINES, WHICH, IF WEREN’T FOLLOWED PUNISHMENT WAS ENACTED, FIRST BY FINES, THEN BY LAND SEIZURES, FULL EXCOMMUNICATION, IN WHICH IMPRISONMENT FOLLOWED, MANY UPON EXCOMMUNICATION WERE DECLARED HERETICS AND SENTENCED TO DEATH. WHAT WAS HAPPENING WAS THE SAME THING THAT WAS CURRENTLY GOING ON IN EUROPE. RELIGEOUS VIEWS FORCED UPON THE MASSES.

Tyler, Narratives of Ear ly Virginia, 271 - 272, 273 “August 4, 1619 All ministers shall duly read divine service, and exercise their ministerial function according to the Ecclesiastical laws and orders of The church of England, and every Sunday in the afternoon shall Catechize such as are not yet ripe to come to the Communion. And whosoever of them shall be found negligent or faulty in this kind shall be subject to the censure of the Governor and Counsel of Estate.”
Hening, I, 155 - 156

“February 24, 1632 It is ordered, That their be a uniformity throughout this colony both in substance and circumsta nce to the cannons and constitution of the church of England as near as may bee and that every person yield ready obedience unto them upon penalty of the pains and forfeitures in that case appointed. That the statutes for coming to church every Sunday and holydays be duly executed. That is to say; that the church wardens do levy one shilling for every time of any person’s absence from the church having no lawful or reasonable excuse to be absent. And for due execution Here of the Governor and Council together with the burgesses of this grand assembly do in Gods name earnestly require and charge all commande rs, captains and church - wardens that they shall endeavor themselves to the uttermos t of their knowledge that the due and true execution hereof may be done and had through this colony, as they will answer before God for such evils and plagues wherewith Almighty God may justly punish his people for neglecting this good and wholesome law.”.

IN 1636, ANNE HUTCHINSON, A MOTHER OF FOURTEEN CHILDREN WAS BROUGHT TO TRIAL FOR PREACHING THE HOLY BIBLE, HER CHARGE WAS HERESY. SHE HAD BEEN TEACHING BIBLE CLASSES IN HER HOME, WHICH, 1) A WOMAN WAS NOT TO RELIGEOUSLY INSTRUCT ANYONE, AND 2) PEOPLE WERE NOT TO HOLD COMMUNION OUT OF THEIR HOUSE.

Anne Hutchinson's "As I do unders tan d it, laws, command s, rules and edicts are for those who have not the light which makes plain the pathway. He who has God's grace in his heart cannot go astray."
SHE WAS EXCOMMUNICATED HER EXAMINATION IS IN PART BELOW

The Examination of Mrs. Anne Hutchinson at the Court at Newton. 1637

[The General Court, highest in authority in Massachusetts Bay Colony, consisted of the Governor as Chair of the Court, the Deputy Governor, 5 assistants, and 5 deputies. Several other ministers were in attendance including Rev. John Cotton, Mrs. Hutchinson's minister, and the person who inspired her basic theological position. Anne Hutchinson appears as the accused in this trial].

Mr. [John] Winthrop, Governor: Mrs. Hutchinson, you are called here as one of those that have troubled the peace of the commonw ealth and the churches here; you are known to be a woman that hath had a great share in the promoting and divulging of those opinions that are the cause of this trouble, and to be nearly joined not only in affinity and affection with some of those the court had taken notice of and passed censure upon, but you have spoken divers things, as we have been informed, very prejudicial to the honor of the churches and ministers thereof, and you have maintained a meeting and an assembly in your house that hath been condemned by the general assembly as a thing not tolerable nor comely in the sight of God nor fitting for your sex, and notwithstanding that was cried down you have continued the same. Therefore we have thought good to send for you to understand how things are, that if you be in an erroneous way we may reduce you that so you may become a

profitable member here among us. Otherwise if you be obstinate in your course that then the court may take such course that you may trouble us no further. Therefore I would intreat you to express whether you do assent and hold in practice to those opinions and factions that have been handled in court already, that is to say, whether you do not justify Mr. Wheelwright's sermon and the petition. Mrs. Hutchinson: I am called here to answer before you but I hear no things laid to my charge. Gov.: I have told you some already and more I can tell you. Mrs. H.: Name one, Sir. Gov.: Have I not named some already?

42
Mrs. H.: What have I said or done? Gov.: Why for your doings, this you did harbor and countenance those that are parties in this faction that you have heard of. Mrs. H.: That's matter of conscienc e, Sir. Gov.: Your conscience you must keep, or it must be kept for you. Mrs. H.: Must not I then entertain the saints because I must keep my conscience. Gov.: Say that one brother should commit felony or treason and come to his brother's house, if he knows him guilty and conceals him he is guilty of the same. It is his conscienc e to entertain him, but if his conscienc e comes into act in giving countenance and entertainment to him that hath broken the law he is guilty too. So if you do countenanc e those that are transgress ors of the law you are in the same fact. Mrs. H.: What law do they transgress? Gov.: The law of God and of the state. Mrs. H.: In what particular? Gov.: Why in this among the rest, whereas the Lord doth say honour thy father and thy mother. Mrs. H.: Ey Sir in the Lord. Gov.: This honour you have broke in giving countenance to them. Mrs. H.: In entertaining those did I entertain them against any act (for there is the thing) or what God has appointed? Gov.: You knew that Mr. Wheelwright did preach this sermon and those that countenance him in this do break a law. Mrs. H.: What law have I broken? Gov.: Why the fifth commandment. Mrs. H.: I deny that for he [Mr. Wheelwright] saith in the Lord. Gov.: You have joined with them in the faction. Mrs. H.: In what faction have I joined with them? Gov.: In presenting the petition. Mrs. H.: Suppose I had set my hand to the petition. What then? Gov.: You saw that case tried before. Mrs. H.: But I had not my hand to [not signed] the petition. Gov.: You have councelled them. Mrs. H.: Wherein? Gov.: Why in entertaining them. Mrs. H.: What breach of law is that, Sir? Gov.: Why dishonouring the commonwealth. Mrs. H.: But put the case, Sir, that I do fear the Lord and my parents. May not I entertain them that fear the Lord because my parents will not give me leave? Gov.: If they be the fathers of the commonw ealth, and they of another religion, if you entertain them then you dishonour your parents and are justly punishable. Mrs. H.: If I entertain them, as they have dishonoured their parents I do. Gov.: No but you by countenancing them above others put honor upon them. Mrs. H.: I may put honor upon them as the children of God and as they do honor the Lord. Gov.: We do not mean to discourse with those of your sex but only this: you so adhere unto them and do endeavor to set forward this faction and so you do dishonour us. Mrs. H.: I do ackno wledge no such thing. Neither do I think that I ever put any dishonour upon you. Gov.: Why do you keep such a meeting at your house as you do every week

43
upon a set day? Mrs. H.: It is lawful for me to do so, as it is all your practices, and can you find a warrant for yourself and condemn me for the same thing? The ground of my taking it up was, when I first came to this land becaus e I did not go to such meetings as those were, it was

presently reported that I did not allow of such meetings but held them unlawful and therefore in that regard they said I was proud and did despise all ordinances. Upon that a friend came unto me and told me of it and I to prevent such aspersions took it up, but it was in practice before I came. Therefore I was not the first. Gov.: ...By what warrant do you continue such a course? Mrs. H.: I conceive there lies a clear rule in Titus that the elder women should instruct the younger and then I must have a time wherein I must do it. Gov.: All this I grant you, I grant you a time for it, but what is this to the purpose that you Mrs. Hutchinson must call a company together from their callings to come to be taught of you?... Mrs. H.: If you look upon the rule in Titus it is a rule to me. If you convince me that it is no rule I shall yield. Gov.: You know that there is no rule that crosses another, but this rule crosses that in the Corinthians. But you must take it in this sense that elder women must instruct the younger about their busines s and to love their husbands and not to make them to clash.... Mrs. H.: Will it please you to answer me this and to give me a rule for then I will willingly submit to any truth. If any come to my house to be instructed in the ways of God what rule have I to put them away? Do you think it not lawful for me to teach women and why do you call me to teach the court? Gov.: We do not call you to teach the court but to lay open yourself....

[They continue to argue over what rule she had broken]

[The trial text here reads:] All the court but some two or three ministers cry out, we all believe it- - we all believe it. [Mrs. Hutchinson was found guilty] Gov.: The court hath already declared themselv e s satisfied concerning the things you hear, and concerning the troubleso me ne s s of her spirit and the danger of her course amongst us, which is not to be suffered. Therefore if it be the mind of the court that Mrs. Hutchinson for these things that appear before us is unfit for our society, and if it be the mind of the court that she shall be banished out of our liberties and imprisoned till she be sent away, let them hold up their hands.

[All but three did so]

Gov.: Mrs. Hutchinson, the sentence of the court you hear is that you are banished from out of our jurisdiction as being a woman not fit for our society,

44
and are to be imprisoned till the court shall send you away. Mrs. H.: I desire to know wherefore I am banished? Gov.: Say no more. The court knows wherefore and is satisfied. I HAVE SKIPPED TO THE END OF THE TESTIMONY SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THE LENGTH OF IT, ITS ENTIRETY CAN BE FOUND AT http:/ / p er s onal.pitnet.net / primaryso urce s / h ut c hinson.html OR BY DOING A SEARCH UNDER HER NAME.

REVELATION 13:12 “And he excerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and the m that dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was heale d.”
BLUE LAWS DID NOT GO AWAY, THEY WERE MERELY RELAXED, AND STARTED TO FADE OUT OF ENFORCEMENT BEGINNING AROUND THE LATE 1960’S. THEY STILL REMAIN ON THE BOOKS TODAY THEY ARE JUST NOT ENFORCED AS THEY WERE THEN. SOME OF THE LAWS STILL ARE IN EFFECT THOUGH, MANY STATES USE THEM TO KEEP LIQUER STORE’S CLOSED ON SUNDAY’S MOST MALLS AND STORES WERE KEPT CLOSED UP UNTIL AROUND 1985 IN THE SOUTH. THERE ARE HOWEVER RELIGEOUS GROUPS THAT ARE STRIVING FOR RE- ENFORCEMENT THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES.

Amendme nt I
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances .

THE MAJOR GROUPS INVOLVED IN SPIRITUAL UNITY OF ALL RELIGEONS ARE AS FOLLOWS. THE CHRISTIAN COALITION, THE VATICAN, THE UNITED RELIGEONS INITIATIVE (WWW.URI.ORG), THE CATHOLIC CAMPAIGN OF AMERICA, THE WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES, THE UNITED NATIONS. THEY WISH TO DO THE SAME THING EMPEROR CONSTANTINE AND POPE SYLVESTER DID WITH PAGANISM AND CHRISTIANITY, THEY WANT TO MERGE AND UNITE ALL RELIGEONS UNDER ONE ROOF, AND WHO DO YOU THINK WILL BE THE HEAD OF THIS NEW RELIGEOUS BELIEF? WHY THE POPE OF COURSE. THE VATICAN CURRENTLY HAS DECISION MAKING CONTROL OVER THE UNITED RELIGEONS INITIATIVE (IT WAS STARTED BY THEM), VATICAN HAS 100% CONTROL OVER THE CATHOLIC CAMPAIGN OF AMERICA, AND 50% CONTROL OVER THE WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES, THE VATICAN HAS ALSO COME TO AGGREEMENTS AND HAS INFLUENCE OVER THE CHRISTIAN COALITION, THE UNITED RELIGEONS INTITIATIVE IS ACTUALLY A PART OF THE UNITED NATIONS, AS WELL AS THEY HAVE THEIR FINGERS IN THE WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES AS WELL. NOW REMEMBER CONSTANTINE? CAMBRIDGE MEDIEVAL HISTORY V. 1 “THE CHRISTIAN ROMAN EMPIRE” (THE CATHOLIC CHURCH). CH.1 PG. 14

45 SPEAKING OF CONSTANTINE

“HIS ONE OBJECT WAS TO MAKE AN END OF THE DIVISION OF THE CHURCHES. SO WHATEVER PLEASED THE BISHOPS PLEASED THE EMPEROR TOO. EASTER WAS FIXED ACCORDING TO THE CUSTOM OF ROME ( EASTER WAS ORIGINALLY A PAGAN HOLIDAY DEDICATED TO THE FERTILITY GODDESS DIANA) AND ALEXANDRIA FOR THE SUNDAY AFTER THE FULL MOON FOLLOWING THE VERNAL EQUINOX. IT IS THE RULE WE HAVE NOW, AND THOUGH IT DID NOT PRODUCE THE COMPLETE UNITY TILL THE LUNAR CYCLE WAS SETTLED, IT SECURED THAT EASTER SHOULD COME AFTER THE PASSOVER, FOR SAID CONSTANTINE “HOW CAN WE WHO ARE CHRISTIANS KEEP THE SAME DAY AS THOSE UNGODLY JEWS?” THIS IS THE TIME WHEN THE DIFFERENT PAGAN RELIGEONS WERE MERGED WITH CHRISTIANITY. AND THE VATICAN IS DOING IT ALL OVER AGAIN TODAY RIGHT NOW THIS INSTANT. LOOK IT UP IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, ALL THE MOVEMENTS HAVE WEBSITES, PEEL BACK THE LAYERS AND YOU FIND THE VATICAN AT WORK IN ALL OF THEM. MARK MY WORDS ONCE UNITY IS COMPLETED TODAY PERSECUTION WILL FOLLOW AGAINST THOSE WHO FOLLOW THE UNPOLLUTED, UNADULTERATED WORD OF GOD. IT WILL HAPPEN... THE BIBLE SAYS SO.
THE MAJOR GROUPS NOW STRIVING TO IMPOSE THEIR RELIGEOUS BELIEFS ON THE PEOPLE . HOW COULD THE UNITED STATES MAKE AN IMAGE TO THE BEAST? AND FURTHER MORE HOW ON EARTH COULD THE U.S.A FORCE THE AMERICAN PUBLIC ALONG WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD TO WORSHIP THE BEAST (PAPACY)? THIS IS OFTEN BEEN A PERPLEXING QUESTION THAT REQUIRES STUDY. WOULDN’T PEOPLE REBEL AGAINST BLUE LAWS? FIRST LETS TAKE A PEEK AT WHAT AN “IMAGE” TO THE FIRST BEAST WOULD BE. NOW REMEMBER WHAT JESUS CHRIST WAS, CONCERNING GOD? COLLOSIANS 1:15 SPEAKING OF JESUS “Who is the image of the invisible God ,” WHAT IS IT TO MAKE AN IMAGE OF SOMETHING. WEBSTER’S COLLEGIATE DICTIONARY GIVES US A DEFINITION. IMAGE #3: TO CREATE A REPRESENTATION OF; ALSO TO FORM AN IMAGE OF, TO REPRESENT SYMBOLICALLY. THIS OF COURSE IS NOT ALL THE DEFINITION’S BUT IS THE MOST APPLICABLE SEEING AS WE’RE DEALING WITH A SYSTEM OF BELIEF. REMEMBER WHEN WE STUDIED THE RISE OF THE PAPACY? THE QUESTION BOX 1913 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA

46 “QUESTION: WHAT BIBLE AUTHORITY IS THERE FOR CHANGING THE SABBATH FROM THE SEVENTH DAY OF THE WEEK TO THE FIRST? WHO GAVE THE POPE THE AUTHORITY TO CHANGE A COMMAND OF GOD? ANSWER: IF THE BIBLE IS THE ONLY AUTHORITY FOR THE CHRISTIAN, THEN THE SEVENTH DAY ADVENTIST IS RIGHT IN OBSERVING SATURDAY WITH THE JEW. BUT CATHOLICS LEARN WHAT TO BELIEVE AND DO FROM THE DIVINE, INFALLIBLE AUTHORITY, ESTABLISHED BY JESUS CHRIST, THE CATHOLIC CHURCH , WHICH IN APOSTOLIC TIMES MADE SUNDAY THE DAY OF REST, TO HONOR OUR LORDS RESSURECTION ON THAT DAY, AND TO MARK OFF CLEARLY THE JEW FROM THE CHRISTIAN. IS IT NOT STRANGE THAT THOSE WHO MAKE THE BIBLE THERE ONLY TEACHER SHOULD INCONSISTANTLY FOLLOW IN THIS MATTER THE TRADITION OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH?” NOTICE THEY CALL THE ACT OF SUNDAY WORSHIP A “TRADITION ” ROME HAS ALSO ISSUED A CHALLENGE TO ALL OTHER PROTESTANT CHURCHES WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE ONES THAT ATTEND CHURCH ON THE BIBLE SABBATH. IN THIS CHALLENGE THEY ASSERT THAT ALL CHRISTIANS THAT ATTEND CHURCH ON SUNDAY ARE BUT BOWING IN SUBMISSION TO THE PAPACY AND CONSIDER THE POPE TO TRULY BE CHRIST BEHIND A VEIL OF FLESH. 2THESSALONIANS 2:3- 4 “THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY” “LET KNOW MAN DECIEVE YOU BY ANY MEANS: FOR THAT DAY SHALL NOT COME, EXCEPT THERE BE A FALLING AWAY FIRST, AND THAT MAN OF SIN BE REVEALED, THE SON OF PERDITION. WHO OPPOSETH AND EXALTETH HIMSELF ABOVE ALL THAT IS CALLED GOD , OR THAT IS WORSHIPPED, SO THAT HE AS GOD SITTETH IN THE TEMPLE OF GOD, SHOWING HIMSELF THAT HE IS GOD. NO OTHER HEAD OF CHURCH ASSERTS HIMSELF TO BE CHRIST EXCEPT THE POPE.
“THE POPE IS OF SO GREAT DIGNITY AND SO EXALTED THAT HE IS NOT A MERE MAN, BUT AS IT WERE GOD, AND THE VICAR OF GOD.”

“HENCE THE POPE IS CROWNED WITH A TRIPLE CROWN, AS KING OF HEAVEN AND OF EARTH AND OF THE LOWER REGIONS.” “SO THAT IF IT WERE POSSIBLE THAT THE ANGELS MIGHT ERR IN THE FAITH, OR MIGHT THINK CONTRARY TO THE FAITH, THEY COULD BE JUDGED AND EXCOMMUNICATED BY THE POPE.” AND WHAT DOES CHRIST SAY ON THIS MATTER OF “TRADITION” CLAIMED WITH SUCH BLASPHEMY?
MATTHEW 15:9 “BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING FOR DOCTRINES THE COMMANDMENTS OF MEN.” POPE JOHN PAUL II HAS TRAVELLED THE WORLD MORE THAN ANY OTHER POPE BEFORE, ALL IN AN EFFORT TO BRING PEACE AND FIND A COMMON GROUND AMONG THE DIFFERENT RELIGEONS. THE UNITED RELIGEONS INITIATIVE (WWW.URI.ORG) IS WORKING TIRELESSLY TO MERGE AS MANY RELIGEONS AS THEY CAN UNDER ONE ROOF. PAT ROBERTSON’S CHRISTIAN COALITION, IS WORKING TO INSTITUTE A NATIONAL SUNDAY LAW, POPE JOHN PAUL II IN 1998 RELEASED HIS LETTER “DIES DOMINI” IN WHICH HE

47
DECLARES THAT A SUNDAY LAW SHOULD BE ENFORCED, AND THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD AID IN THAT MATTER. VARIOUS PROTESTANT RELIGEONS ARE STARTING TO HAVE THE OPINION THAT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH DIFFERS VERY LITTLE FROM ANY OTHER RELIGEON, AND THAT THE CRIMES SHE COMMITTED DURING THE DARK AGES WASN’T THAT BAD, THAT IT WAS JUST THE WAY LIFE WAS BACK THEN. THE REV. THOMAS A. BAIMA, S.T.L. IS A CATHOLIC PRIEST, AND IS THE DIRECTOR OF THE OFFICE FOR ECUMENICAL AND INTERRELIGIOUS AFFAIRS OF THE ARCHDIOCESE OF CHICAGO, AND TRUSTEE OF THE COUNCIL FOR A PARLIAMENT OF THE WORLD'S RELIGIONS, WHICH IS OVER THE UNITED RELIGEONS INITIATIVE. MANY BELIEVE THAT THE UNITED STATES WOULDN’T DO SUCH A THING (LIKE RECEIVE A MARK) TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BUT THE BIBLE SAYS DIFFERENT. REVELATION 13:15 - 17 “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause all that as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man may buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” SO HOW COULD IT EVEN BE THEORETICALLY POSSIBLE FOR THIS TO BE DONE YOU ASK. IT WOULDN’T BE HARD WITH THE TECHNOLOGY TODAY. THE INTERNATIONAL SATELLITES COMMUNICATIONS ORGANIZATION HAS 17 INCOMSAT SATELLITES THAT ORBIT THE EARTH, EVERY FAX, PHONE CALL, E- MAIL, GOES THROUGH THOSE SATELLITES, THE NSA CAN MONITOR ANYTHING. THEY ARE THE LARGEST EMPLOYER OF MATHEMATICIANS IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. BEFORE WE GET TO INDEPTH LETS FIRST LOOK AT WHAT THE SEAL OF GOD IS. A SEAL REPRESENTS AUTHORITY OVER A PARTICLULAR OFFICE OR LAND. IT BEARS THE NAME OF THE RULER, THE RULERS TITLE, AND THE LAND HE RULES OVER. SO WHERE CAN WE FIND THESE THREE THINGS IN GOD’S LAW? RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS!! EXODUS 20:8- 11 “Reme m b e r the Sabbat h day, to keep it holy. Six days

shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: but the seventh day is the Sabb a th of the Lord thy God : in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daught e r, thy manser v a n t, nor thy maidse r v a n t, nor thy cattle, nor thy stran ge r that is within thy gates: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is , and rested the seventh day: wherefor e the Lord blessed the Sabbat h day, and hallowe d it.” 1) IT TELLS US WHO HE IS, THE LORD 2) WHAT HIS TITLE IS, THY GOD 3) WHAT HE IS OVER, HEAVEN THE EARTH THE SEA AND ALL THAT IN THEM IS.
EZEKIEL 20:19 - 20 “I am the Lord your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgme nts, and do them; and hallow my Sabbaths; and they shall be a sign betwe en me and you, and ye may know that I am the Lord your God.” ROMANS 4:11 “And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might

48
be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcise d; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also.” HERE WE SEE THAT A SIGN AND A SEAL MEAN THE SAME THING. THE SEAL OF GOD IS IN KEEPING HIS SABBATH, THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT IS THE SEAL OF GOD. SO WHAT THEN IN TURN IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST WELL WE IDENTIFIED THE BEAST ALREADY AS THE PAPACY, WHO NOT ONLY BOASTS ABOUT BEING ABLE TO CHANGE GODS DIVINE LAW BUT CLAIMS TO BE GOD ON EARTH. SHE HAS LONG CLAIMED THAT HER MARK OF AUTHORITY IS THAT SHE SUCCESSFULLY CHANGED THE SABBATH DAY IN 325 A.D. REVELATION 13:17 - 18 “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the numb er of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” WEBSTER’S COLLEGIATE DICTIONARY DEFINES A MARK AS “TO FIX OR TRACE OUT THE BOUNDS OR LIMITS OF … TO SET APART AS BY OR AS IF BY A LINE OR BOUNDRY.” C.F. THOMAS, CHANCELLOR “IN REPLY TO A LETTER OF OCTOBER 28, 1895, TO CARDINAL GIBBONS, ASKING IF THE CHURCH CLAIMED THE CHANGE OF THE SABBATH AS HER MARK, THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT WAS RECEIVED: ‘ OF COURSE THE CATHOLIC CHURCH CLAIMS THAT THE CHANGE WAS HER ACT … AND THE ACT IS A MARK OF HER ECCLESIASTICAL POWER AND AUTHORITY IN RELIGEOUS MATTERS.’” DR. EDWARD T. HISCOX BAPTIST AUTHOR OF THE BAPTIST MANUAL, SOURCE BOOK, PP. 513, 514 “THERE WAS AND IS A COMMANDMENT TO KEEP HOLY THE SABBATH DAY, BUT THE SABBATH DAY WAS NOT SUNDAY. IT WILL BE SAID , HOWEVER, AND WITH SOME SHOW OF TRIUMPH, THAT THE SABBATH DAY WAS TRANSFERRED FROM THE SEVENTH TO THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK… WHERE CAN RECORD OF SUCH BE FOUND? NOT IN THE NEW TESTAMENT - - - ABSOLUTLEY NOT… OF COURSE, I QUITE WELL KNOW THAT SUNDAY DID COME INTO USE IN EARLY CHRISTIAN HISTORYAS A RELIGEOUS DAY, AS WE LEARN FROM THE CHRISTIAN FATHERS, AND OTHER SOURCES. BUT WHAT A PITY THAT IT COMES BRANDED WITH THE MARK OF PAGANISM, AND CHRISTENED WITH THE NAME OF THE SUN GOD, WHEN ADOPTED AND SANCTIONED BY THE PAPAL APOSTASY, AND BEQUEATHED AS A SACRED LEGACY TO PROTESTANTISM!” LUKE 6:5 “And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath.” HERE HE IS TELLING THEM THAT IT WAS HIM WHO CREATED ALL THINGS, THAT HE IS LORD OF THE SABBATH OF THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT. REMEMBER

COLLOSIANS 1:13 - 15 “Who hath delivere d us from the power of darkn ess, and hath translat e d us into the kingdo m of his dear Son : In who m we have rede m p ti on through his blood, even the forgivene ss of sins : Who is the image of the invisible God , the first born of ever y creatur e.” COLLOSIANS 1:16 “For by him were all things create d , that are in the heave n , and that are in the earth , VISIBLE and INVISIBLE,

49 wheth er they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or pow er s: ALL things were create d BY him, and FOR him .”
REVELATION 14:12 “HERE IS THE PATIENCE OF THE SAINTS: HERE ARE THEY THAT KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, AND THE FAITH OF JESUS.” IT IS QUITE CLEAR THAT THE MARK OF THE BEAST OR THE SEAL OF GOD WILL BE EITHER ALLEGIANCE TO GOD BY KEEPING HIS FAITH AND COMMANDMENTS OR KEEPING THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE BEAST, WHICH INSTILLED SUNDAY AND MADE IT HER DIVINE COMMAND. FOR YOU SEE THE CATHOLIC DECLARES IT A SIN TO NOT SHOW REVERENCE TO SUNDAY, WHILE THE LORD CONSIDERS IT A SIN TO NOT SHOW REVERENCE TO THE SABBATH (SATURDAY). WHO DO YOU THINK IS RIGHT?

DANIEL 7:25 “and think to change times and laws”
THE COMING OF JESUS CANNOT BE STOPPED, ITS BEST TO HAVE AS CLEAR OF AN UNDERSTANDING OF HIS WILL AS WE CAN, WE CANNOT AND SHOULD NOT PUT ALL OUR FAITH INTO A CHURCH OR PRIEST OR PASTOR, IT IS FOOLISH FOR US TO LET THEM DECIDE WHETHER WE HAVE ETERNAL SALVATION OR NOT. I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT THAT IS MUCH TOO IMPORTANT TO ME, KNOWLEDGE IS POWER AND GOD REVEALS TRUTH TO THOSE WHO HONESTLY SEEK IT. SOME ARE SAYING “THERE IS NO WAY THAT THE UNITED STATES COULD POSSIBLY FORCE THE ENTIRE WORLD TO OBSERVE SUNDAY. NO WAY!” TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION TAKES A LITTLE STUDY, FIRST A GOOD MAJORITY OF THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES ARE ALREADY PRIMARILY CATHOLIC SO THE THERE WOULD BE NO NEED FOR CHANGE THERE. SO WHAT ABOUT PLACES LIKE CHINA AND THE MIDDLE EAST? I NOT A PROPHET SO I CAN’T REALLY SAY HOW IT WILL BE DONE I JUST KNOW THAT IT WILL BE DONE BECAUSE IT SAYS IN THE BIBLE. BUT LETS TAKE A LOOK IN HISTORY A LITTLE AND SEE HOW THE GOVERNMENT HAS THOUGHT TO WIN THE PEOPLE OF THE U.S.A OVER IN THE PAST. BODY OF SECRETS BY JAMES BRAMFORD PG. 71 “ACCORDING TO DOCUMENTS OBTAINED FOR BODY OF SECRETS, LEMNITZER AND THE JOINT CHIEFS PROPOSED TO SECRETLY TO STAGE AN ATTACK ON THE AMERICAN NAVAL BASE AT GUANTANIMO BAY, CUBA- - AND THEN BLAME THE VIOLENT ACTION ON CASTRO. CONVINCEED THAT CUBA HAD LAUNCHED AN UNPROVOKED ATTACK ON THE UNTIED STATES, THE UNWITTING AMERICAN PUBLIC WOULD THEN SUPPORT THE JOINT CHIEFS BLOODY CARRIBEAN WAR. AFTER ALL, WHO WOULD BELIEVE CASTRO’S DENIALS OVER THE WORD OF THE PENTAGONS TOP MILITARY COMMANDERS? THE NATIONS MOST SENIOR MILITARY LEADERSHIP WAS PROPOSING TO LAUNCH A WAR THAT WOULD UNDOUBTEDLY KILL MANY AMERICAN SERVICEMEN, BASED SOLEY ON A FABRIC OF LIES.” JAMES BRAMFORD THE AUTHOR OF THE BOOK OBTAINED MANY OF THE ACTUAL DOCUMENTS KEPT BY THE NSA THROUGH OUR OWN COURT SYSTEM. OUR COURT SYSTEM HAD TO FORCE THE NSA TO RELEASE DOCUMENTS OVER 35 YEARS OLD, STUFF DEALING WITH THE CUBAN MISSLE CRISIS AND OTHER INFORMATION DEEMED UNTHREATENING TO NATIONAL SECURITY. HERE IS ANOTHER EXCERPT FROM HIS BOOK CONCERNING “OPERATION NORTHWOODS”. PG.82 2 ND AND 3 RD PARAGRAPH

50
“IN THE NAME OF ANTICOMMUNISM, THEY PROPOSED LAUNCHING A SECRET AND BLOODY WAR OF TERRORISM AGAINST THEIR OWN COUNTRY IN ORDER TO TRICK THE AMERICAN PUBLIC INTO SUPPORTING AN ILL CONCEIVED WAR THEY INTENDED TO LAUNCH AGAINST CUBA. CODE NAMED OPERATION NORTHWOODS, THE PLAN, HAD WRITTEN APPROVAL OF THE CHAIRMAN AND EVERY MEMBER OF THE JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF, CALLED FOR INNOCENT PEOPLE TO BE SHOT ON AMERICAN STREETS ; FOR BOATS CARRYING REFUGEES FLEEING CUBA TO SUNK ON THE HIGH SEAS; FOR A WAVE OF VIOLENT TERRORISM TO BE LAUNCHED IN WASHINGTON D.C., MIAMI, AND ELSEWHERE. PEOPLE WOULD BE FRAMED FOR BOMBINGS THEY DID NOT COMMIT; PLANES WOULD BE HIJACKED. USING PHONY EVIDENCE ALL OF IT WOULD BE BLAMED ON CASTRO, THUS GIVING LEMNITZER AND HIS CABAL THE EXCUSE, AS WELL AS THE PUBLIC AND INTERNATIONAL BACKING, THEY NEEDED TO LAUNCH THEIR WAR.” THE DOCUMENTS MR. BRAMFORD OBTAINED FOR THE BOOK ARE ACTUAL DOCUMENTS FROM THE NSA …DON’T GET ME WRONG I AM A PATRIOTIC AMERICAN, AND I LIKE MY COUNTRY BUT I AM ALSO NOT BLIND TO OUR GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN AND POSSIBLY COULD BE IN THE FUTURE, I MEAN HOW MUCH RESEMBLANCE DOES THIS PLAN SOUND TO THE THINGS THAT HAPPENED FROM 2001 - 2003? COULD IT ALL BE A HOAX IN ORDER TO GET THE AMERICAN PUBLIC TO GIVE UP THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OUT OF FEAR? I DON’T KNOW, WHO CAN KNOW, ALL WE CAN REALLY DO IS TRUST IN JESUS AND WATCH. ONE THING IS FOR SURE THE U.S. GOVERNMENT HAS A LOT MORE POWER OVER THE PEOPLE THEN THEY USED TO HAVE, WITH THE ONSET OF THE PATRIOT ACT (WHICH ONLY 1 LEGISLATOR OUT 14 WHO SIGNED OFF ON IT ACTUALLY READ IT, AND THE ONE THAT READ IT VOTED AGAINST IT), FEMA (WHICH HAS THE POWER TO SUSPEND OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS), HOMELAND SECURITY DEPARTMENT (WHICH SITS AT THE SAME LEVEL AS CONGRESS), A SHADOW GOVERNMENT CREATED BY THE PRESIDENT (WHICH HE DID WITHOUT CONSULTING CONGRESS), AS WELL THE POPES LETTER “DIES DOMINI” AND PAT ROBERTSONS CHRISTIAN COALITION WHICH ARE BOTH CALLING TO HAVE THE BLUE LAWS RENFORCED BY THE GOVERNMENT. POLITICIANS ARE NOW CONSTANTLY TALKING ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT ENSURING “GOOD CHRISTIAN VALUES” WHICH WOULD MOST CERTAINLY INCLUDE SUNDAY OBSERVANCE. SO WHAT DOES JESUS SAY ABOUT THIS? MATTHEW 22:21 “RENDER THEREFORE UNTO CEASAR THE THINGS

WHICH ARE CEASARS, AND UNTO GOD THE THINGS THAT ARE GOD’S.” IF THE GOVERNMENT EVER ENFORCES OBSERVANCE OF A NATIONAL SUNDAY LAW, WHO WILL YOU OBEY THE GOVERNMENT OR GOD? GOD FORBID, YOU CHOOSE THE GOVERNMENT.
REVELATION 14:12 “HERE IS THE PATIENCE OF THE SAINTS: HERE ARE THEY THAT KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, AND THE FAITH OF JESUS.”
