Beast Watch: Pope Francis Once Again Admits That The Roman Catholic Church is Mystery Babylon

“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication” (Revelation 17:4).

Grace and peace, Saints.

Many of you may be aware that last October, Pope Francis went on an ecumenical journey to Sweden. During an in-flight press conference held aboard the papal jet, the pontiff fielded a variety of questions covering subjects from ecumenism to secularization. Responding to a question from a Swedish journalist regarding the possibility of women being allowed in the Catholic priesthood, Pope Francis made a cryptic, yet very revealing statement wherein he once again admitted that the Roman Catholic religion is, in fact, Mystery Babylon, the worship of Nimrod and Semiramis.

Click here for the full text of the press conference.

Following is the complete dialogue:

Journalist: “Good morning. The Sweden that hosted this important ecumenical encounter has a woman as head of it’s own Church. What do you think: is it realistic to think of women priests also in the Catholic Church in the coming decades? And if not, why are Catholic priests afraid of competition?”

Pope Francis: “Reading the history a bit in the area where we were, I saw that there was a queen who was widowed three times. And I said: but, this woman is strong, and they told me: Swedish women are very strong, very good. And because of this some Swedish man looks for a woman from another nationality…I don’t know if it’s true, but…on the ordination of women in the Catholic Church, the final word is clear, it was said by St. John Paul II and this remains. On competition, I don’t know…”

Journalist: “Never ever?”

Pope Francis: “If we read well the declaration made by St. John Paul II, it goes along this line, yes…But women can do so many things better than men, even in the dogmatic field. To clarify (to perhaps give some clarity, not to say only a reference to a document):

INTERJECTION. Now pay close attention, as the Pope reveals the true nature of Roman Catholicism: that rather than Christianity, Catholicism is really Mystery Babylon, the worship of Nimrod and Semiramis. The greatest emphasis, however, is on Semiramis.

Pope Francis: “In Catholic ecclesiology there are two dimensions to think about: the Petrine dimension (which is from the Apostle Peter and the Apostolic College, which is the pastoral activity of the bishops), as well as the Marian dimension (which is the feminine dimension of the Church); and this I have said more than [once]. I ask myself: who is most important in theology and in the mystic of the Church: the apostles or Mary on the day of Pentecost? It’s Mary! The Church is a woman! It’s “la Chiesa” (in Italian), not “il Chiesa.” It’s “la Chiesa”; and the Church is the spouse of Christ. It’s a spousal mystery.

“And in light of this mystery you will understand the reason for these two dimensions: the Petrine dimension, which is the bishops, and the Marian dimension, which is the maternity of the Church, but in the most profound sense. A Church doesn’t exist without this feminine dimension, because she herself is feminine.” [Boldface and brackets mine.]

If you have ears to hear, then you know that Pope Francis has made some extremely revealing admissions here.

First, it is important to first understand that if the Roman Catholic Church were truly the Bride of Christ, then there would be no mystery, as the bride and groom would already be identified. That there remains a “spousal mystery” is the first clue that the Roman Catholic Church is not the Bride of Christ and Jesus Christ is not the groom of the Roman Catholic Church.

The Pope’s emphasis on the Petrine and Marian dimensions being peculiar to Roman Catholicism is also very important. In biblical Christianity, there are no Petrine or Marian hemispheres, as “Christ is all and in all” (Colossians 3:11). If there were two dimensions to biblical Christianity, then they would have to be the Mosaic Dimension, which is salvation by works, and the Christian Dimension, which is salvation through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ:

“For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ” (John 1:17)).

Regarding the Church, there is no spousal mystery. Jesus is the groom and the Church is his bride. There are two great mysteries in the Bible:

  1. the mystery of godliness.
  2. the mystery of iniquity.

The mystery of godliness, which is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, has already been revealed through Scripture and is therefore no longer a mystery:

“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” (1 Timothy 3:16).

The mystery to which Pope Francis alludes, therefore, can only be the Mystery of Iniquity, which just happens to be a spousal mystery. The Bible calls this mystery Mystery Babylon:

“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, 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 forehead was a name written, MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

“And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus…” (Revelation 17:5).

When Pope Francis calls Catholicism a “spousal mystery,” he is admitting that Roman Catholicism is Mystery Babylon, which is the worship of Nimrod and Semiramis. The Petrine and Marian dimensions of Catholic theology are therefore emblematic of the deified couple: St. Peter is a symbol for Nimrod, and the Virgin Mary is a symbol for Semiramis.

It is important to understand that Pope Francis’ use of the words mystery and mystic is a signal that he is speaking in occult or symbolic language. Mystery Babylon uses symbols to conceal the fact that its principle objects of worship are Nimrod and Semiramis. There are two types of symbols: esoteric and exoteric. An esoteric symbol is closer to the truth, while an exoteric symbol is farther from the truth. The Pope has already provided us with the two esoteric symbols for Nimrod and Semiramis in the Petrine and Marian dimensions of Catholic ecclesiology. Any cryptic references the Pope makes to people or things are merely symbolic references to the deified couple.

When the Pope therefore says “in light of this mystery you will understand….the two dimensions,” what he is really saying is “Once you understand that Roman Catholicism is Mystery Babylon, then you will know that everything in Roman Catholicism—from the dead Jesus, to the cross, to the Virgin Mary, to the seven sacraments—is symbolic of Nimrod and Semiramis, and you will have the key to deciphering all my cryptic references, including and especially my reference to the Roman Catholic Church as a ‘spousal mystery.’”

Pope Francis said that he has mentioned the feminine aspect of the Roman Catholic Church in the past, and one such incident may be a homily he gave in 2013, wherein Pope Francis described the Catholic Church as “a widow in search of her spouse,” an obvious reference to the Egyptian legend of Isis and Osiris, who are none other than Nimrod and Semiramis.

Pope Francis’ remarks also proves that the Virgin Mary is not the biblical Mary, the mother of Jesus. The Roman Catholic Church claims its popes are the spiritual descendants of the Apostles. Yet, the Pope claims that the Virgin Mary is the most important person in Catholic theology. The problem with this statement is that according to the Bible, Jesus’ mother Mary was present with the Apostles and the other disciples of the Lord Jesus, in the days from our Lord’s crucifixion up to Pentecost, but she played no major role. Peter was the one who was prominent:

“These [the Apostles] all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brethren. And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples…” (Acts 1:14).

In fact, the Bible records that on the day of Pentecost, the Apostle Peter preached a sermon that resulted in three thousand people being converted:

“And when the day of Pentecost was come…Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem…hearken unto my words…” (Acts 2:14).

Peter then went on to preach Jesus to the crowd, ending with:

“Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus both Lord and Christ” (Acts 2:36).

What was the result of Peter’s preaching?

“Then they gladly received his word and were baptized: and that same day were added unto them about three thousand souls” (Acts 2:41).

Jesus’ mother Mary is not even mentioned in connection with Pentecost, yet Pope Francis claims that Mary was the most important person on that day!

Why is all this important? You may ask. I’ll tell you. The Roman Catholic Church bills itself as the “mother of all churches,” and claims that it’s popes are the spiritual descendants of the Apostles and that the Apostle Peter was the first pope. This, they believe, gives the Catholic Church the divine right to rule all other churches, including the true Christian Church, and makes the Pope the spiritual head of all churches, including the Christian Church. But, by Pope Francis’ own words, Mary is the most important person in Catholic theology, even more important than the Apostle Peter. If I were a sincere Roman Catholic, I would find this problematic, because, in case you hadn’t noticed, the Virgin Mary is a statue.

Why does the Catholic Church exalt the Virgin Mary above the Apostle Peter, if they consider Peter the first pope? Because, by Pope Francis’ own words, the Catholic Church could not exist without the Virgin Mary. Pope Francis tells us:

“[T]he Marian dimension…is the maternity of the Church, but in the most profound sense. A Church doesn’t exist without this feminine dimension, because she herself is feminine.”

Here, the Pope is again using symbolic language; so, if you interpret “Marian dimension” as the Virgin Mary and “most profound” as esoteric, then you will understand that Pope Francis is telling us that the Catholic Church could not exist without the Virgin Mary because, in it’s most profound (esoteric) sense, the Virgin Mary is Semiramis.

The Pope is saying that the Marian (Semiramis) dimension is more important than the Petrine (Nimrod) dimension, because the Church is Semiramis and Semiramis is the Church. This is why the Roman Catholic Church calls itself “Mother Church.” The Catholic Church is Semiramis, who was worshipped as Cebele, the Goddess Mother and wife of Nimrod. The preeminence of Semiramis over Nimrod is depicted in the Egyptian Mysteries of Isis and Osiris, where we read that “Osiris or Horus, is the doctrine, while Isis is the Church.”

Only when one considers Roman Catholicism from the perspective of the ancient mysteries and understands that the Roman Catholic St. Peter and the Virgin Mary are really esoteric symbols for Nimrod and Semiramis, can one understand why the Catholic Church claims their popes are descended from St. Peter and the Apostles, when the popes are not and have never been anything like the Apostle Peter and the Apostles. The Roman Catholic popes are really reincarnations of Nimrod, while the Virgin Mary is really Semiramis.

Pope Francis once again proves that Roman Catholicism is not Christianity, but “Mystery Babylon The Great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth” (Revelation 17:5).

“He who hath an ear, let him hear.”

Be encouraged and look up, for your redemption draweth nigh.

The New Jesuit General 2016

Shaun Willcock of Bible Based Ministries:

Paul iii and ignatius loyolaHis name is Arturo Sosa, and he was elected to be the new Superior General of the Jesuit Order.  As such, he is now the leader of the world’s Jesuits.  They met in Rome in October to elect him, after his predecessor, Adolfo Nicolas, resigned after reaching the age of 80.

To most, one man replacing another as Jesuit general would mean little, if anything.  Just another election of a leader of a religious order within the Roman Catholic institution.  But to those who know the true history of the Jesuits, and their modus operandi, any election of a new Jesuit general is of immense importance.  And this becomes of incalculably more importance, when the pope of Rome himself is a member of the Jesuit Order!

For in truth, Francis I, the first openly Jesuit pope in history, is not the man who is in charge of the Roman Catholic institution.  The Jesuit general is the real power behind the papal throne.  He pulls the strings, and the pope dances.[1]  And unless one properly understands this fact, it is impossible to understand the Roman Papacy at all, and particularly the Roman Papacy with a Jesuit on the throne!

For here is the grim truth: the Jesuits are unique among all Roman Catholic orders.  When they were created in the sixteenth century, they had as their mission the destruction of Protestantism.  But in order to fulfil this mission, as well as to accomplish their other objectives in the world, they knew that they had to control the popes of Rome themselves.  And this is precisely what they achieved, at a very early date.  History reveals these facts.  The Jesuits pretended to lay themselves at the feet of the pope, to be his willing servants, to go wherever he wanted them to go and to do whatever he wanted them to do.  But this was all a front.  In truth, they obeyed only one man, and it was not the pope.  It was their general.  They were, from the start, fanatically devoted to carrying out his orders – and only his – throughout the world.  And so they did.  And at the same time, the Jesuit general came to control the pope.  Not just a pope here and there, but virtually every pope.  They became so powerful in the Vatican that they manipulated the very elections of popes, and then they placed their powerful hands on the papal shoulders and directed their movements, speeches, actions.  And if a pope dared to cross them, they did not hesitate to remove him, even by assassinating him!  This was done often.  It did not take the popes long to realise that if they wanted to maintain a semblance of power and enjoy their luxurious lifestyles in the Vatican – indeed, if they wanted to continue to enjoy life itself – they had better obey the Jesuit general in all things.[2]

As time went by and the sheer power and influence of the Jesuit general over the pope became evident even to the masses, the general came to be known as the “black pope”, the one directing Vatican affairs from the shadows.  “In Roman Catholic circles it is well known that the Black Pope is the term used for the General of the Jesuits.  As the Pope is always robed in white, and the General in black, the contrast is obvious.  But those Romanists who do not greatly love the Jesuits, and their number is not limited, use the term as indicating that the Black Pope rules the White Pope.”[3]  The Jesuits came to be universally feared throughout the Roman Catholic world, and universally hated as well.

And then in recent times the world witnessed an extraordinary thing, brought about by the Jesuits behind the scenes in the corridors of power in Rome.  They placed one of their own on the papal throne!  He was Jorge Mario Bergoglio, and he became Pope Francis I in 2013…

Assissi 2016: A Religious Babel

via Shaun Willcock at Bible Based Ministries:

The 2016 abomination

1986: The Start of It All

Way back on October 27, 1986, members of many different religions came together at Assisi, birthplace of the Roman Catholic “saint”, Francis, for a day of prayer for “peace”.  This massive interfaith gathering was at the instigation of the pope of Rome, John Paul II.    Such was the power and authority of this man that at his call, not only did leaders of various religions gather from around the world to “pray”, but three governments, and terrorist guerillas in 11 lands, held a 24-hour truce![1]

How well we remember that event!  Although inter-religious dialogue had been going on for decades already, and even meetings between various religious leaders, nothing like this had ever been seen before.  There was the pope of Rome, right at the centre of the greatest assembly of religious leaders in history!  It was an interfaith Babel of epic proportions, an abomination in the eyes of the Lord.

 

The 1986 abomination

  The representatives of each religion prayed according to their own rites.  The so-called “Christian” service was led by John Paul II, the Anglican archbishop of Canterbury, Robert Runcie, and Eastern Orthodox patriarchs.  These men, the whole lot of them, were not, by any biblical criterion, true Christians.  John Paul II, the biblical Antichrist, head of the most iniquitous religious system to ever disgrace the earth; Runcie, head of the effeminate, spineless, facing-both-ways religious system which arrogantly and erroneously calls itself “the Church of England”; and leaders of the Eastern Orthodox branch of the false, paganised “christianity”, icon-worshippers, Soviet stooges.  The god they were praying to was not the sovereign God of the Bible.

Elsewhere in the city of Assisi at the same time, Buddhists prayed mantras in a Roman Catholic “church” building, while Shinto priests chanted outside.  Four Indian religions prayed together: Hindus, Sikhs, Zoroastrians, and Jains.  At two other locations, Muslims and Jews prayed.[2]  And various others.

The Word of God commands true Christians to be separate from the world and from false religions, and not to unite with those still in darkness.  “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? and what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? and what agreement hath the temple of god with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty” (2 Cor. 6:14-18).

Not only were John Paul II, Robert Runcie, and all those other so-called “Christian” leaders participating in a religious event with the leaders of the dark, satanically-inspired religions of the world such as Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, and all the rest, but they themselves – these men claiming to be “Christians” – were unbelievers, unrighteous, in darkness, servants of Belial, infidels, and part of the temple of idols!  They were not part of the true Church, the temple of the living God; God did not dwell in them, nor walk in them; they were not His people!  They had not “come out from among them”, they were not separate from them, because they were as much a part of this world’s night, and of false religion, as all those idol-worshipping Hindus or Mohammed-serving Muslims!  What happened at Assisi all those years ago was not  Christians sinfully uniting with people of other religions to pray, but heathens pretending to be “Christians” uniting with other heathens to pray!

There were no true Christians at that iniquitous event.

2016: Three Decades On

Well, thirty years have passed.  And during all this time great strides have been made in inter-religious dialogue and inter-religious “unity”.  And so, John Paul II’s successor in the Vatican, the Jesuit pope, Francis I, decided to do it all again in 2016, and to re-create that moment when the devil’s religions got together and said to the world, “See?  We’re all praying together for peace!”

And thus it was that Francis called for another “Assisi” – another “World Day of Prayer” – to be held in the same city.  And representatives of various religions again heeded his call, assembling in Assisi in 20 September 2016 to relive the glory days.  And if it didn’t quite match the hype of 1986, this was only because what was so novel and momentous back then has now become far more commonplace around the world, with “mini-Assisis” being held in all kinds of venues.  Tragically, the abomination of witnessing so-called “Christians” praying together with people of various religions just doesn’t raise that many eyebrows anymore.
