Subjection Necessary For Salvation

Gastaldi-BonifacePope Boniface VIII:

“We declare, say, define, and pronounce, that it is absolutely necessary for the salvation of every human creature to be subject to the Roman Pontiff.”

~Bull “Unam Sanctum,” as cited in “Apostolic Digest, Book V: The Book of Obedience”


Judged by No One

Pope Innocent III:

APROBACIÓN DE LA REGLA“It was said to me in the prophet: ‘I have set you over nations and over kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy, and to overthrow, to build and to plant’ (Jer. 1:10)… Others were called to the role of caring, but only St. Peter was invested with the fullness of power [plenitudo potestatis]. See then what manner of servant this is, appointed over the household; he is indeed the vicar of Jesus Christ, the successor of St. Peter, the Christ of the Lord, the God of Pharaoh…the midpoint between God and man… who can judge all things and is judged by no one.”

Up To Its Neck In Blood


Rev. Alan Cairns on the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and Reagan‘s betrayal of Protestants and the American people when he opened the door to Roman Catholic rule in the United States:

“You may not know all the history and I am not here to give it to you, but if you go back in your own nation’s history you will find that following the assassination of Abraham Lincoln this country deliberately broke ties with the Vatican for the very simple reason
that the Vatican was embroiled up to its neck in the blood of the murdered president of this country. It is a simple fact of history. No president, not even John F. Kennedy, no president reinstated those relations until the conservative came along whom all the evangelicals were falling down before and he could get it done. And Billy Graham told him if anybody is eve[r] going to be able to do it, of course Graham wanted it done, you are the one to do it.”

[“eve” changed to “eve[r]” by me]

2015 Saw The Worst Persecution Of Christians Since The Vatican’s Spanish Inquisition

Politically, Socially, and Legislatively


Rev. Alan Cairns describes the current three-pronged attack against Christianity:

“We are in a battle with an enemy that is more ferocious and fearsome than the Philistines ever were. The cause of Jesus Christ across the world is under attack from militant Islam, from Romanism now dressed up as almost evangelicalism. It is under attack from Humanism. The gospel of Jesus Christ is under attack politically, socially, legislatively. It is under attack from the outside. It is under attack from apostates on the inside. The gospel of Jesus Christ is nowadays under serious and terrible attack. We all know that. You look at what has happened in your own lifetime, unless you are one of the very young and I think even the very young could probably, if they had the wherewithal to do the search, they could trace even what has happened in their few years. But look at your own lifetime and see what has happened in your own nation. And it is incredible. It is utterly beyond belief.”

It seems to me that this was prophesied thousands of years ago.  If this isn’t a fulfillment of Revelation 16 and Armageddon, I don’t know what is:

Revelation 16:13-16:  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon [Humanism/Paganism], and out of the mouth of the beast [Romanism and apostate Protestantism], and out of the mouth of the false prophet [Islam]. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.   Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.  And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

Here is Albert Barnes’ Notes on the Bible on the above passage so you can see how it eerily parallels what Rev. Cairns is describing [color added]:

Revelation 16:13

And I saw three unclean spirits – They assumed a visible form which would well represent their odiousness – that of frogs – but still they are spoken of as “spirits.” They were evil powers, or evil influences (Revelation16:14, “spirits of devils”), and the language here is undoubtedly designed to represent some such power or influence which would, at that period, proceed from the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet.

Like frogs – βατράχοι  batrachoi. This word does not occur in the New Testament except in the passage before us. It is properly translated frogs. The frog is here employed clearly as a symbol, and it is designed that certain qualities of the “spirits” here referred to should be designated by the symbol. For a full illustration of the meaning of the symbol, the reader may consult Bochart, Hieroz. P. II. lib. v. cap. 4. According to Bochart, the frog is characterized, as a symbol:

(1)    for its rough, harsh, coarse voice;
(2)    on this account, as a symbol of complaining or reproaching;
(3)    as a symbol of empty loquacity;
(4)    as a symbol of heretics and philosophers, as understood by Augustine;
(5)    because the frog has its origin in mud, and lives in mud, as a symbol of those who are born in sin, and live in pollution;
(6)    because the frog endures all changes of the season cold and heat, summer, winter, rain, frost – as a symbol of monks who practice self-denial;
(7)    because the frog though abstemious of food, yet lives in water and drinks often, as a symbol of drunkards;
(8)    as a symbol of impudence;
(9)    because the frog swells his size, and distends his cheeks, as a symbol of pride.

See the authorities for these uses of the word in Bochart. How many or few of these ideas enter into the symbol here, it is not easy to decide. We may suppose, however, that the spirits referred to would be characterized by pride, arrogance, impudence, assumption of authority; perhaps impurity and vileness, for all these ideas enter into the meaning of the symbol. They are not here, probably, symbols of persons, but of influences or opinions which would be spread abroad, and which would characterize the age referred to. The reference is to what the “dragon,” the “beast,” and the “false prophet” would do at that time in opposing the truth, and in preparing the world for the great and final conflict.

Out of the mouth of the dragon – One of which seemed to issue from the mouth of the dragon. On the symbolic meaning of the word “dragon,” see the notes on Revelation 12:3. It, in general, represents Satan, the great enemy of the church; perhaps here Satan under the form of paganism or paganism, as in Revelation12:3-4. The idea then is, that, at the time referred to, there would be some manifestation of the power of Satan in the pagan nations, which would be bold, arrogant, proud, loquacious, hostile to truth, and which would be well represented by the hoarse murmur of the frog.

And out of the mouth of the beastThe papacy, as above explained, Rev. 13. That is, there would be some putting forth of arrogant pretensions; some loud denunciation or complaining; some manifestation of pride and self-consequence, which would be well represented by the croaking of the frog. We have seen above (notes on Revelation16:5-6), that although the fifth vial was poured upon “the seat of the beast,” the effect was not to crush and overthrow that power entirely. The papacy would still survive, and would be finally destroyed under the outpouring of the seventh vial, Revelation 16:17-21. In the passage before us we have a representation of it as still living; as having apparently recovered its strength; and as being as hostile as ever to the truth, and able to enter into a combination, secret or avowed, with the “dragon” and the “false prophet,” to oppose the reign of truth upon the earth.

And out of the mouth of the false prophet – The word rendered “false prophet” –  ψευδοπροφήτου  pseudoprophētou – does not before occur in the Book of Revelation, though the use of the article would seem to imply that some well-known power or influence was referred to by this. Compare the notes on Revelation 10:3. The word occurs in other places in the New Testament, Matthew 7:15; Matthew 24:11, Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Luke 6:26; Acts 13:6; 2 Peter 2:1; 1 John 4:1; and twice elsewhere in the Book of Revelation, with the same reference as here, Revelation 19:20; Revelation 20:10. In both these latter places it is connected with the “beast:” “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet”; “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are.” It would seem, then, to refer to some power that was similar to that of the beast, and that was to share the same fate in the overthrow of the enemies of the gospel. As to the application of this, there is no opinion so probable as that it alludes to the Muhammedan power – not strictly the Turkish power, for that was to be “dried up,” or to diminish; but to the Muhammedan power as such, that was still to continue for a while in its vigor, and that was yet to exert a formidable influence against the gospel, and probably in some combination, in fact, if not in form, with paganism stud the papacy. The reasons for this opinion are:

(a)    that this was referred to, in the former part of the book, as one of the formidable powers that would arise, and that would materially affect the destiny of the world – and it may be presumed that it would be again referred to in the account of the final consummation, see Revelation 9:1-11;
(b)    the name “false prophet” would, better than any other, describe that power, and would naturally suggest it in future times – for to no one that has ever appeared in our world could the name be so properly applied as to Muhammed; and,
(c)    what is said will be found to agree with the facts in regard to that power, as, in connection with the papacy and with paganism, constituting the sum of the obstruction to the spread of the gospel around the world.

It would be easy to despair in such days, but remember the promised outcome:

Revelation 17:14:  These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

“We May Dispose of the Law”

Pope Innocent III:

Raffael 083“We may according to the fullness of our power, dispose of the law and dispense above the law. Those whom the Pope of Rome doth separate, it is not a man that separates them but God. For the Pope holdeth place on earth, not simply of a man but of the true God.”

~“Decretals of Greogory IX,” Book 1, chapter 3


From Egypt to the Secret Archives

Image-Great Pyramid Edgar

I came across this fascinating claim regarding the contents of the Vatican’s Secret Archives.  There is no evidence given in the article to back up the claim beyond bare assertions, but I am publishing it on this blog in case I come across anything related in the future:

“Under Emperor Augustus, Egypt became a province of the Roman Empire. Egypt had a fantastic library in Alexandria but the priests of Isis also had top secret archives dating back to the time after the Great Flood. =

The Romans took a lot of the top secret books back to Rome and stored them in the vast underground vaults beneath the city. The top secret books on divination, sorcery, witchcraft, and spying laid the foundation for the Vatican Secret Archives.

When the British occupation of Rome began in 313 AD, Imperial Rome became Papal Rome. The top secret books on divination, sorcery, witchcraft, and spying were used by Constantine to lay the foundations of the Papacy.”


This brings to mind Revelation 9:21:

Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
