when I threw out everything I had thought was true, and returned to foundation of scripture was I able to reconstruct prophecy in a way that actually revealed the truth.

A woman in prophecy is a church, and the woman wears purple and scarlet. Immediately enough information has been revealed to identify the true Antichrist among all the churches in the world. It’s unfortunate that there is so much confusion in the world regarding prophecy, that when presented with the truth, people dismiss it as a “theory.”

I read a quote somewhere that someone had said ‘Believe everyone who pursues the truth, but not those who find it.’ If I were to follow this advice I’d end up right where I started. Nowhere. I have different plans. I want to live in eternity with God, and He said the way is straight and narrow.

“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” (Mat 7:14)

 

ANTICHRIST PROPHECIES

AS FULFILLED BY ROMAN CHURCH

1.

Antichrist Must Come Before Christ Comes Again.

Roman Church Arose in the Early Centuries The Roman Church has existed since the early centuries and in 538AD Pope Vigilius was enthroned as the civil leader of Rome foretold in prophecy as the beginning of the 1,260 years of power.

(2 Thess. 2:8,9)

2.

Claims to Be God

“Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” (2 Thess. 2:4)

Pope Claims his Authority is Divine "The Pope is not only the representative of Jesus Christ, he is Jesus Christ himself, hidden under the veil of flesh." - Catholic National July 1895.

I

have the authority of the King of Kings. I am all in

 

all and above all, so that God himself and I, the vicar of God, have but one consistory, and I am able to do all that God can do." - The Bull Unam Sanctam. Issued by POPE BONIFACE VIII

3.

Will Claim Ability to Forgive Sins

Roman Catholic Church Claims to Absolve Sins "This judicial authority will even include the power to forgive sin." - The Catholic Encyclopaedia Vol xii, article ‘Pope’ pg 265]

“And God himself is obliged to abide by the judgment of his priest and either not to pardon or to pardon, "

according as they refuse to give absolution

- Saint

“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; … And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.” (Revelation 13:5,6)

Blasphemy in the Bible = Claiming to Be God and/or Claiming to Forgive Sins. (John 10:33, Mark 2:7)

Alphonsus De Liguori, Duties and Dignities of the Priest», p.27

4.

Will Reside on Seven Mountains

Roman Church Sits on “The City on Seven Hills” “It is within the city of Rome, called The City on Seven Hills, that the entire area of Vatican State Proper is now confined" - The Catholic Encyclopedia,

“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads

 

and ten horns

"

[Revelation 13:1]

p. 529.

The seven heads are seven mountains, on

which the woman sitteth.” [Revelation 17:9]

5.

Antichrist is Both a Church and State Power

The Vatican is a Church-State In addition to his service in this spiritual role, the Pope is also Head of State of the independent sovereign State of the Vatican City, a city-state and nation entirely enclaved by the city of Rome. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia © 2001-2006

“So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” (Revelation

17:3)

 

Beast in Prophecy = King/Kingdom (Dan. 7:17,23) Woman in Prophecy = Church Body (Jer. 6:2, Isa. 51:16, 2 Cor. 11:2, Rev. 19:7,8)

6.

Arrayed in Purple and Scarlet

Catholic Church Wears Purple and Scarlet “But a cardinal is also, next to the Pope, the most privileged and the most powerful cleric in the Roman Catholic Church. As one of the most spectacular dressers of Christendom, he has to lay out at least

$3,000 for his cassocks and skullcaps of scarlet and

“And the woman was arrayed in purple and

scarlet colour,

Will Have Power Over and Kill Many Christians

Roman Church is Guilty of Millions of Deaths "That the Church of Rome has shed more innocent blood than any other institution that has ever existed among mankind, will be questioned by no Protestant "

who has a competent knowledge of

- W. E. H. Lecky,

"And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” (Revelation 13:7) (Dan. 7:21,25, 8:24)

"The records of historians and martyrologists show that it may be reasonable to estimate that from fifty to sixty-eight millions of human beings died, suffered torture, lost their possessions, or were otherwise devoured by the Roman Catholic Church during the awful years of the Inquisition." - The Shadow of Rome by John B Wilder, Zondervan Pub. House (1960)

8.

Will Not Have a Desire for Women

Leaders of Catholic Church Must Practice Celibacy “Celibacy is the renunciation of marriage implicitly or explicitly made, for the more perfect observance of chastity, by all those who receive the Sacrament of Orders in any of the higher grades." – Catholic Encyclopedia

“Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all." (Dan.

11:37)

9.

All Whose Names Are Not Written in the Book of Life Will Worship the Antichrist

The Pope Accepts Many forms of Worship "The Pope enjoys, by divine institution, supreme, full, immediate, and universal power in the care of souls"

"And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world." (Revelation 13:8)

Catholic Catechism, p

246, #937

Pope Pius IX, in his "Discorsi" (I., p. 253), said: "The Caesar who now addresses you, and to whom alone are obedience and fidelity due."

 

The pope accepts worship in the forms of obedience, bowing/kneeling down before him, kissing his ring, his feet, and even in forms of prayer to papal statues or images.

10.

Does Not Confess Jesus Christ Came in the Flesh

Catholicism Teaches Jesus in an Unbiblical Flesh The Roman Church teaches that Mary was immaculate (sinless) and therefore Jesus was born without “original sin” (inherited sin). In this way the church denies Jesus was born in the likeness of a sinful flesh,

"And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this

is that spirit of antichrist,

"

(1 John 4:3)

contrary to Romans 8:3.

wonders,

(2 Thessalonians 2:8,9)

Catholicism is guilty of innumerable false biblical doctrines such as purgatory, infant baptism, the immortal soul, Sunday observance, Mary as co- redeemer and co-mediatrix, prayer to dead saints and the worship of images, idols, and the pope among hundreds of others.

12.

Is An Apostate Church that Causes Other Churches to Follow its Ways

Protestantism & Other Faiths Follow Catholic Dogmas "The Bible says, Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath day. The Catholic church says, No! By my divine power I abolish the Sabbath day, and command you to keep the first day of the week. And lo, the entire civilized world bows down in reverent obedience to the command of the holy Catholic church!" Father Enright, C.S.S.R. of the Redemptoral College, Kansas City, Mo., History of the Sabbath, p. 802

"And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." (Revelation 17:5)

13.

Number of His Name Equals 666

Vicarius Filii Dei, the Title of the Pope Equals 666 "The letters inscribed in the Pope's miter are these 'VICARIUS FILII DEI'. which is the Latin for 'VICAR OF THE SON OF GOD.” - Our Sunday Visitor, (Catholic Weekly) "Bureau of information," Huntington, Ind., April 18, 1915.

“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." (Revelation 13:17,18)

In Roman numerals, “Vicarius Filii Dei” adds up to

666.

After the Beast’s Head Wound is Healed, the World Will Marvel at the Beast

Since the time of John Paul II, Millions Worship & Revere the Papacy “People who see him -- and countless millions have -- do not forget him. His appearances generate an electricity unmatched by anyone else on earth.” – TIME Magazine, “Empire of the Spirit,” Dec. 26 th , 1994, by Paul Gray.

"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. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast:" (Revelation 13:3-4)

Today, the pope is adored and literally worshipped by millions of people world-wide, a feat impossible to fathom during the first thousand years of papal rule amidst inquisitions and the ordered deaths of millions of lives.

into perdition:

when they behold the beast that

was, and is not, and yet is. (Rev 17:8)

16.

Will Think to Change the Times and Laws of God

Roman Church Changed the Ten Commandments

"The Church,

after changing the day of rest from

"And he shall speak great words against the most

Sabbath, or the seventh day of the week, to the first, made the Third Commandment refer to Sunday as the day to be kept holy as the Lord's Day." - The Catholic Encyclopedia, vol. 4, p. 153

High,

and think to change times and laws:"

(Daniel 7:25)

The church also removed the second commandment completely, and the Sabbath is the only commandment given by God which is both a time, and a law.

17.

Antichrist is a Single Leader

The Pope is the Head of the Roman Church “The Pope, Bishop of Rome and Peter's successor, "is the perpetual and visible source and foundation of the unity both of the bishops and of the whole company of the faithful. For the Roman Pontiff, by reason of his office as Vicar of Christ, and as pastor of the entire Church has full, supreme and universal power over the whole Church, a power which he can always exercise unhindered." – Catholic Catechism [882] Supremacy of the Pope

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 worshiped;

so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” (2 Thess. 2:4)

18.

Will Arise from Within the Church Body

Catholicism Arose from within Christianity “The apostle speaks of some very great apostasy … And let us observe that no sooner was Christianity planted in the world than there began to be a defection in the Christian church.– Matthew Henry Commentary, Notes on 2 Thess. 2:3

“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have

heard that antichrist shall come

They went out

from us, but they were not of us: for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued

with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.” (1 John 2:18,19)

Within the believers of Christ and Christianity, arose the institution of the Roman Catholic church.

19.

Will Reside Within the Church Body

Catholicism Claims to be a Christian Religion The Roman Church claims to be a Christian church founded on a belief in Jesus Christ and in this manner continues to this day.

he as God sitteth in the temple of God,

showing himself that he is God.” [2 Thess. 2:4]

20.

Will Have the Power to Work Miracles

Hundreds of Catholic Miracles Are Documented Bloody hosts, Marian apparitions, stigmata, weeping statues and paintings of Mary are only a few of many miracles that supposedly lend validity to the Roman catholic faith.

“Even Him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying

wonders,

(2 Thess. 2:8,9) (Rev. 13:13,14)

21.

Antichrist Will Work Together With the Kings of the Earth

Roman Church Has Close Ties with World Leaders The Vatican, a church, has approx. 175 ambassadors throughout the world. Notable world political and spiritual leaders throughout the world, admire, respect, and listen to the pope in matters of international politics. These leaders also prostrate themselves before him in acts of worship.

“And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.” (Revelation 19:19) (Rev. 17:12)

22.

Antichrist Will Arise in a Populated Area

Catholic Church Originated in Rome In the early centuries during the rise of Catholicism in the Roman Empire, Rome was the center of human politics and most populated city on earth. The fact that the Roman church arose within Rome, fulfills this prophecy.

“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads

and ten horns,

(Revelation 13:1)

   

Sea (Water) in Prophecy = Multitudes of People (Rev.

17:15)

23.

Antichrist Will Rise Among 10 Kings/Kingdoms

The Church Received Power from Divided Rome After Rome fell, the empire was divided by the ten barbarian tribes that now make up modern Europe. It was at this time, after Rome fell and the empire was divided, that the Roman church assumed the civil authority that once belonged to Rome.

and

it was diverse from all the beasts that were

before it; and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them

another little horn, ”

(Daniel 7:7,8)

 

24.

Three Kings or Kingdoms Will Be Destroyed Prior to the Rise of the Antichrist

Church Destroyed Three Nations Prior to its Rule "The three divisions which were plucked up where the Heruli in 493 the vandals in 534 and the Ostrogoths in 538. Justinian, the emperor, who we see was at Constantinople, working through the general Belisarius, was the power that overthrew the three kingdoms represented by the three horns, and the reason for their overthrow with their adherence to Arianism in opposition to the orthodox Catholic faith." - The Book of Daniel, page 109

“I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots:” (Daniel 7:8) (Dan. 7:20)

25.

Antichrist Will Have Power Over the Saints for 1,260 Years

Roman Church Had Civil Authority for 1,260 YRS The Roman Church enjoyed its civil supremacy over the fallen Roman empire from 538AD when the church was granted civil authority, to 1779AD before the “dark day” over New England and the other celestial signs Christ said would follow the great tribulation. 538AD to 1779AD are exactly 1,260

Jewish years. The “dark day” followed only months later in 1780AD. (Matt. 24:29)

“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.” [Daniel 7:25]

Time in Judiasm = 1 Cycle of Seasons, or One Year Time, Times & Dividing of Time = 1,260 Days One Day in Prophecy = 1 Literal Year (Num. 14:34, Eze. 4:6)

ADD ADDITIONAL PICTURES/PHOTOS OF ANTICHRIST – UPSIDE DOWN CROSS – TWISTED CROSS – ETC.

Is this upside down cross a satanic reference, or a harmless tribute to the Apostle Peter who was crucified upside down? I suppose it’s up to you to decide. If the Bible hadn’t perfectly exposed the Roman Catholic church as the most biblically impure and blasphemous entity to ever grace this planet, I might have no problem thinking it was simply a reference to the apostle Peter. Scripture says the Antichrist will understand the practices of darkness.

“And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.” (Dan 8:23)
