Grace and peace, Saints.

The move towards a one world church seems to be picking up steam, as can be clearly seen in advertisements I’ve been seeing around Munich.

[See original image on The Still Man’s site]

 

This is an advertisement for a concert featuring music from “Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.” The Christianity referred to in this advertisement is not Bible-based Christianity, as true Christians would never fellowship in a religious capacity with Muslims and Jews, as both Islam and Judaism reject Jesus as the Savior of the world. Islam both rejects the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God, claiming that “Allah had no son,” and denies His deity by reducing Him to a minor prophet. Judaism also rejects the Lord Jesus by refusing to acknowledge the New Testament, and denies His deity by rejecting Jesus as the long-awaited Messiah. For Christians to fellowship in a religious capacity with Jews and Muslims, therefore, is to be “unequally yoked” (2 Corinthians 14:6). The cross, then, must represent Roman Catholicism, a pagan religion that also rejects Jesus, though it pays Him lip service. Catholicism claims to be Christian, but, in reality, it worships “another Jesus” (a dead Jesus still nailed to a cross), and has “another spirit and another gospel” (2 Corinthians 11:4). Since Pope John Paul II, Roman Catholicism has attempted to unite with Islam and Judaism through the Ecumenical Movement.

In order for Roman Catholicism, Judaism, and Islam to worship “The One God,” then all three religions would have to have this one god in common. But, how is this possible, when all three religions worship different gods? My premise is that Roman Catholicism, Judaism, and Islam do all worship the same god, but that god is not the God of the Bible, whose name is Jesus Christ. The One God which Roman Catholicism, Judaism, and Islam all have in common is the goddess, Semiramis. This can be proved by examining the symbols in the advertisement.

Let us begin with the symbol of the cross with the tree wrapped around it. Suspended from a branch of the tree is an apple with a bite taken out of it. This is an obvious reference to the sin of Adam and Eve. The Bible tells us that Eve, the first woman, was deceived by Satan into eating the fruit which God had forbidden her and her husband to eat. The Roman Catholic Church has long taught that the forbidden fruit was an apple, though the Bible doesn’t specify what the fruit was. The apple is therefore an exoteric symbol for Eve, The Woman. The fact that the tree is wrapped around the cross and not the other symbols is a sign that the apple and the cross are meant to be symbolically interpreted together. And this we shall do.

Now, the cross is thought by many to be the symbol for Christianity, but the Holy Bible never mentions the early Christian Church symbolizing their faith with a cross. In point of fact, the cross is historically a symbol for the Sun God, Tammuz (Ezekiel 8:14). The Roman Emperor Constantine The Great worshipped Tammuz as Sol Invictus (The Unconquerable Sun), which he symbolized with an equal-armed cross. The Romans used crucifixion both as a means of execution and as a way to sacrifice victims to Tammuz. Emperor Constantine founded the Roman Catholic Church in 330 A.D., when he issued the Edict of Milan, a decree of tolerance towards Christians. Constantine then announced that he had become a Christian and declared Christianity as the state religion. But Constantine’s version of Christianity was actually an unholy mixture of the pagan worship of Tammuz with a smidgen of Christianity thrown in for good measure. Because the cross is a symbol for Tammuz or Nimrod, then the apple, rather than a symbol for Eve, is really a symbol for Semiramis, the wife of Nimrod. Semiramis was also known as the The Lady (Isaiah 47:5).

The crescent moon symbol has come to be associated with Islam, but you may find it interesting that the moon is also a symbol for the Egyptian goddess Isis, the Scandinavian goddess Frigga, the Phoenician goddess Ashtoreth, the Greek goddess Diana, and the Roman Catholic idol known as the Virgin Mary.

The six-pointed star is usually associated with modern Judaism, but it is also found in the Holy Bible as the symbol of a pagan god and goddess:

“But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves” (Amos 5:26).

“Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god, Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them” (Acts 7:43).

The six-pointed star is also used in Roman Catholicism as a symbol for the Virgin Mary, which is known in Catholicism as the Star of the Sea.

[See original image on The Still Man’s site]

Note lastly that the cross and the six-pointed star are interlaced and surmounted by a half moon, effectively forming a new symbol. Since the purpose of this union is to glorify “The One God,” then this symbol, rather than representing three separate religions, actually symbolizes one single religion, which incorporates Roman Catholicism, Judaism, and Islam. The problem, however, is that Roman Catholicism, Judaism, and Islam do not worship the same god; or do they?

Islam has the moon and the star, but the cross is not found. Modern Judaism has the star, but the moon and the cross are not (normally) found. Only Roman Catholicism uses the moon, the star, and the cross. I submit therefore, that the religion symbolized by the amalgamation of the moon, the cross, and the star is Roman Catholicism, which worships a goddess known as the Virgin Mary, and calls itself the “mother of all churches.” The worship of the goddess is known as Mystery Babylon, which the Bible calls the “mother of harlots and abominations of the earth” (Revelation 17:5).

The “One God” then, that this concert seeks to glorify is actually the One Goddess, Semiramis, known in Catholicism as the Virgin Mary, in Islam as Mother Mary, and in Judaism as Mother Mary and Miriam (in Kabbalistic Judaism, God the Mother). The Bible, however, calls this idol the Abomination of Desolation.

There are two symbols I almost forgot to include, which also happen to be symbols for the Virgin Mary. The first is the dove at the upper left. The Roman Catholic Church claims the dove symbolizes the Holy Spirit, but the dove is also a symbol of Semiramis, who was also known as Columbia or The Dove. Notice also the flowers on the right side of the symbol. I’m no florist, but they appear to be roses and possibly carnations. The Catholic Church  uses both as symbols for the Virgin Mary.

Let us take a look at yet another advertisement.

[See original image on The Still Man’s site]

 

The caption above “We Are The World” says “An Inclusive Gospel Choir,” and below the globe is stated, “A Community project of people with and without handicaps and asylum-seekers.” While a Gospel choir that includes the handicapped is a good idea, as the Gospel is for them too, you must understand that this event is taking place in Munich, a very Roman Catholic city in the very very Roman Catholic state of Bavaria, Germany. This choir, therefore, is most likely composed primarily of Roman Catholics (further proof of this is the fact that the event is taking place in a Catholic church). For those of you who didn’t know, the Jesus of Catholicism is not the Jesus of the Bible, most evident by the fact that the Jesus of Catholicism is still hanging on a cross. Catholicism, therefore, has “another Jesus, another spirit and another gospel” (2 Corinthians 11:3,4).

Note also that besides the handicapped, this choir includes asylum seekers. Having lived in Munich for almost twenty years, I can tell you that, arguably, the overwhelming majority of asylum seekers here are Muslims. In that true gospel music glorifies Jesus Christ, and Muslims do not glorify the Lord Jesus, then the music that this choir sings cannot be the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but, again, “another gospel.” If this choir does not glorify Jesus Christ, then, what is its purpose? Answer: to promote an “inclusive”: that is, ecumenical, gospel: the gospel of the One World Church.

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

What Roman Catholics Really Believe: Are Jews and Muslims Christians?

Grace and peace, Saints.

In our last article, we discussed the fact that the Roman Catholic Ecumenical Movement is gaining momentum with every passing day. In the article, we showed you an advertisement for a concert here in Munich featuring a symbol composed of a cross, a six-pointed star, and a crescent moon. The symbol, as well as the music, was dedicated to “The One God.”

In the article, we explained that contrary to popular belief, the cross is not the symbol for Bible-based Christianity, but for Roman Catholicism, as the cross was used by Constantine The Great, founder of the Roman Catholic Church, as a symbol for the pagan sun god, which Constantine worshipped as Sol Invictus. The six-pointed star, the so-called Star of David, is widely regarded as the symbol for Judaism, but the Bible states that those Jews who fell into apostasy used a star to represent Nimrod, whom they worshipped as Moloch and Rempham; and Semiramis, whom they worshipped as Chiun (See Amos 5:26 and Acts 7:43). The crescent moon has come to be known as the primary symbol for Islam, but the crescent moon (as well as the full moon) is also a symbol for many goddesses, including the Egyptian Isis, the Phoenician goddess Ashtoreth, the Roman goddess Diana, The goddess Diana of the Ephesians (Turkey), and the Roman Catholic Virgin Mary.

We further explained that Mystery Babylon, as the worship of Nimrod and Semiramis is known in the Bible (Revelation 17:5), uses symbols to represent the deified couple, and that among these symbols are the cross, star, and moon. The Bible calls Mystery Bible the “mother of harlots and abominations of the earth.” Roman Catholicism uses all three symbols: the cross, the moon, and the six-pointed star, and bills itself the “mother of all churches.”

By these associations we hoped to illustrate that Roman Catholicism is in fact, Mystery Babylon, and the symbol formed by the amalgamation of the symbols for Roman Catholicism, Islam, and Judaism is proof positive that the three religions are united in their worship of the One God, which is none other than The Image of the Beast (Revelation 13): the goddess Semiramis, which the Bible calls The Abomination of Desolation.

Today I will provide proof that this is not conjecture. A Practical Catholic Dictionary gives this definition of “The Heathen”:

“Those who are not Christians, Jews, or Mohammedans [Muslims]. Under Christians are included both Catholics and non-Catholics. Christians, Jews, and Mohammedans worship the One God and so cannot be called heathen” (p. 109). [Brackets and boldface mine]

Here is the original:

Definition of “Heathen” from A Practical Catholic Dictionary, p. 109.

Can you believe that? The Roman Catholic Church considers Muslims and Jews Christians! Because Roman Catholics don’t consider Bible-believing Christians to be Christians, but calls us Protestants and heretics, then what Rome is really saying is that Muslims and Jews are also Roman Catholics! I’m not surprised by this, as I have been saying this for years, and even wrote about it in articles such as House of the Virgin Mary, Ephesus and The Roman Catholic Church, Zionism, Stars, and Seashells. But this time, it’s not me saying it: Rome is saying it herself.

The problem, of course, is that neither Muslims nor Jews worship the Lord Jesus Christ, who Roman Catholics claim to worship. If Roman Catholicism, Islam, and Judaism worship the One God–whom Catholics claim is Jesus–yet Muslims and Jews do not worship the Lord Jesus–who Catholics claim to worship–then, for Catholics, Muslims, and Jews to have One God in common, it could only mean that the One God of Roman Catholicism is not the Lord Jesus Christ. Who then, is the One God? Answer: the only “god” that Roman Catholicism, Islam, and Judaism have in common: Semiramis, known in Catholicism as the Virgin Mary, in Islam as Mother Mary, and in Judaism as Miriam. It is no coincidence, therefore, that Roman Catholics and Muslims share a joint shrine at Ephesus, Turkey; and that the Dome of the Rock, Islam’s second holiest shrine, stands where the Jewish temple once stood.

The One God of Catholicism, Islam, and Judaism is The Woman, Semiramis, who was worshipped in Mesopotamia as Ishtar “The Woman,” in Rome as Domina or Despoina “The Lady” (The Two Babylons, p. 103), and mentioned in the Bible as the “Virgin Queen of Babylon” (Isaiah 47:1), the “Lady of Kingdoms” (Isaiah 47:5), and the “Queen of Heaven” (Jeremiah 44:17-19). Could it be merely a coincidence that the Roman Catholic Virgin Mary is known in every country in the world as Our Lady and the Queen of Heaven?  If there are too many coincidences, there are no coincidences.

If you are a Bible-believing Christian, you should be very encouraged to know that as terrible as all this sounds, it is actually a fulfillment of biblical prophecy, as the Bible tells us that “all the world shall worship him [the Pope]” (Revelation 13:8). Before the Lord Jesus opened my eyes, I used to wonder how Muslims, known for their fanatical devotion to Allah and the Prophet Muhammad, or the Jews, who pride themselves as being the chosen of God and the children of Abraham, would ever rally around the Pope.  I don’t wonder anymore. The Virgin Mary, the “One God,” is the key.

The One World Church is not coming; it’s already here.

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

From Antichrist to Brother in Christ

Catholic faith defeating heresies (Karlskirche Vienna)From a 2015 article:

“More than half of evangelical pastors say Pope Francis is their brother in Christ.

More than one-third say they value the pope’s view on theology, and 3 in 10 say he has improved their view of the Catholic Church.

Those are among the findings of a new study of 1,000 Protestant senior pastors, released this week from Nashville-based LifeWay Research…”

Did Protestants Once Know The Identity Of Antichrist?

Cruikshank_-_Old_Thirty_Nine

Here is a sermon by Rev. Stephen Hamilton examining the historic Protestant view of Antichrist:

Antichrist : The Pope? -The Historic Protestant View

In this sermon, Rev. Hamilton quotes many notable Protestants from over the centuries, all of whom held that the papacy is Antichrist.  Sadly, he also notes that modern-day Lutherans and Anglicans have once again united with Rome, agreeing that the Reformation was a mistake.  It is a sad time, indeed, to be a Protestant.

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.

Remember the Parallel Babylon

Charles Le Brun - Entry of Alexander into Babylon

Christopher Wordsworth, D.D.:

“Lastly, another caution is here given by St. John. Some, at the present critical time, may be in danger of being deluded by the confident language and bearing of Rome. They may imagine, that a cause pursued with such sanguine reliance, and with such outward appearance of success, must be good. But let us remember the parallel Babylon. Its streets echoed with music; its halls resounded with mirth and revelry; its king’s guards were intoxicated at the gates of the city and at the very doors of the palace, and the vessels of God were on the tables at the royal banquet, when the fingers of a man’s hand came forth from the wall,–and Babylon fell!”

6 Reasons Protestants and Catholics Can NEVER Unite

Bandeau portail protestantisme

Purely Presbyterian:

“Many Evangelicals today see the divisions among Christians, the many denominations, and the sometimes heated rhetoric between brothers, and rightly desire to see unity among Christians. Indeed, many modern Evangelicals even want to see unity between Protestant Christians and Roman Catholics.1 While such a desire may seem well-intentioned on the surface, we need to examine whether this is truly the unity that Christ commands His people to have.

Should Protestants and Roman Catholics unite? Is a desire for such unity Biblical? We will discuss 6 reasons why we believe it is not…”

She Is Unchanged And Unchangeable

San Pietro e Ponte SAngelo (notte)

Christopher Wordsworth, D.D.:

“Let none imagine that Rome is changed: that, although she was once proud and cruel, she is now humble and gentle; and that we have nothing to fear from her. This is not the doctrine of St. John. It is not the language of the Holy Ghost. The Apocalypse teaches us that she is unchanged and unchangeable. It warns us, that if she regains her sway, she will persecute with the same fury as before. She will break forth with all the violence of suppressed rage. She will again be drunken with the blood of the Saints (Rev. xvii. 6). Let us be sure of this; and let us take heed accordingly. We have need to do so; more need, perhaps, than some of us suppose. The warning is from God: He that hath ears to hear, let him hear (Mt. Xi. 15., Rev.ii. 7, 2;17,29).”

Vatican May Apologize for Persecution of Christians

via The Still Man:

The Vatican may soon issue a formal apology for the Roman Catholic church’s historical persecution of Bible-believing Protestant Christians. During a recent homily, Pope Francis, the False Prophet of Revelation 13, said,

“Jesus, before the Passion, prayed for the unity of Christians, so that they might be one—as He and the Father are one—that the world might believe. But within the Church there are those who “sow weeds,” who divide and destroy the community with their wagging tongues.”

“The unity of the Christian community,” he said, “is a witness: a witness to the fact that the Father has sent the Son. But achieving unity is very difficult.”

He then went on to say this:

“We have to seek forgiveness for our history, for having waged war against our Christian brothers,—divisions which continue even today.”

“Those who sow weeds,” I believe, refers to those Protestants who know the truth; those Protestants who know that all cumbaya rhetoric aside, the Roman Catholic church and its Pope always have been and always will be the irreconcilable enemy of Protestant Christianity.

Jack Chick, in volume 16 of the Crusader Series, entitled “The Four Horsemen,” says that according to former Jesuit priest, Alberto Rivera, the Vatican is planning to one day formally apologize for the Holocaust. Perhaps this is a lead up to that event. The Roman Catholic church has always been the bitter enemy of both the Christian Church and Israel and has sworn to destroy both—and it will pull out all the stops during the Great Tribulation towards this end.

You must understand that the Roman Catholic Council of Trent declared Martin Luther and all Bible-believing Christians heretics and placed them under one hundred twenty-five curses. Beginning with Vatican II, the Roman Catholic church ostensibly left off the incendiary rhetoric and began to call Christians “separated brethren.” But the reality is that the Vatican has never repealed the decrees of the Council of Trent and follows them to this very day. Bible-believing Christians are still considered heretics who deserve to die.

Charles Chiniquy, in the book, Fifty Years in the Church of Rome, speaking on the hatred the Roman Catholic church holds towards Christians writes:

“The Roman Catholics [feel that they] have not only the right, but it is their duty to kill heretics” (p. 78). [brackets mine.]

He then goes on to quote the Roman Catholic church father, “Saint” Alphonsus Liguori to have written:

“Though heretics must not be tolerated because they deserve it, we must bear with them till, by a second admonition, they may be brought back to the faith of the Church. But those who, after a second admonition, remain obstinate in their errors must not only be excommunicated, but they must be delivered to the secular powers to be exterminated.”  [Emphasis mine.]

Think about that and consider what the United States government did to the Branch Davidian church, in 1993, during the siege at Waco, Texas, when it burned those men, women, and children alive. Think about that and consider what the Philadelphia police department did to the Move Group, in 1985, when it burned those men, women, and children alive. It is important to understand that both those groups had religious beliefs that were very un-Catholic.

The Roman Catholic church feigns friendship for the time being in order to beguile Christians to go along with its One World agenda. Their reason for courting Christians, according to Ligouri, is to bring them “back to the faith of the Church.” They want to unite the Roman Catholics and Protestants in the Vatican’s One World Church. But, once they achieve their ends, the mask will come off and the poor Christians who fell for the deception will see Rome’s true colors. History will repeat itself.  Don’t be deceived!

“Christian brothers” could also mean the Eastern Orthodox Church, which Rome has too persecuted, but the Pope’s use of the term “wagging tongues” and that he says they cause division makes me believe he is talking about Protestant preachers who preach against Rome.
