Vatican intentions

The Vatican's Intentions Revealed

The Roman Catholic Church has been the center of many things throughout the centuries. Royalty used to consult priests and clergy as how to run their kingdoms. The Church has accumulated great wealth through both tithes and extortion. It has gained prestige worldwide. The church is probably
the most wealthy and most influential organization on the face of the planet with almost 1 billion members. The current pope, John Paul II is literally treated as a "god." Is this mere coincidence? Or is it merely a façade? What is the true nature of the Roman Catholic Church?

Before we begin, let us emphasize the fact that not all Catholics are involved or know about some of this information. Most Catholics are simply moral people, having no idea that there is a dark side of the Church, involved in Satanic conspiracies. We are in no way condemning Catholics, but simply reporting what the organization has done, and how it fits into Bible Prophecy.

Most current practices of the Roman Catholic faith were not in any founded in the Bible. True, there are some Biblical elements practiced in the church, but many of them contain added pagan elements as well. Practices such as confession, Catholic ritual baptism, and even "Christian" holidays
such as Christmas and Easter have pagan roots (see our "Biblical Answers" section for more details), not to mention the practice of the "day of the dead" in Roman Catholic Spain and Spanish Latin America. In fact, when you get into it, Catholicism isn’t that much different from Satanism!

To get a clear understanding of how all of this came about, we need a history lesson. The Catholic Church was not founded by Jesus Christ, contrary to popular belief. In fact, Gentiles were not even included in the First Century Church until Peter’s vision, fifteen years after Yeshua ascended into

Acts 15:7 And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe. 8 And God, which knoweth the hearts,
bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us; 9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.

Also contrary to popular belief, most of the First Century Church was Jewish. As time progressed, more and more Gentiles entered the fold, and by the time the third and fourth generations asserted themselves, there was a major split from Biblical practices of eating, Biblical holidays, and the
Sabbath initiated in Nicea in the Third Century. Following Constantine’s decree that "Christianity" be made the official religion of the Roman Empire, a new modified version of paganism emerged. A version of paganism including new names from the Bible. There is not much difference between the relationship the Catholic Jesus, the disciples, and the saints have, to the relationship of the Roman Jupiter to the lesser gods and goddesses. And somehow, Mary gets thrown in there as the "queen of heaven, mother of God," which in Jeremiah was condemned by God and punishable by death.

Jeremiah 44:18 But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine.

Until the Reformation, most people only knew about God from what they heard at the local parish. In fact, most people couldn’t even read. A gospel of tithing and confession was preached by the church. (Note that this is not all of the clergy.) The church was the only organization which had copies of the Bible, or really had a printed copy of the truth. Isn’t that manipulation of information, or witchcraft as the Bible calls it? People did not have a copy of the truth for themselves.

If you didn’t already know, the two keys on the Vatican flag represent the keys of heaven and of death, which Catholic theology claims belong to the pope. These things are clearly owned by Jesus as mentioned in Revelation, a book in the Bible Catholics were forbidden to read until this century.

Revelation 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

It was only until the Reformation that people began to read and understand the Bible for themselves. Back in the1500’s, Martin Luther’s belief that the "just shall live by faith" was
quite revolutionary. However, even with the split and breakup of the church, Protestant denominations still follow many of the customs and traditions founded in Roman Catholicism, which are not mentioned in the Bible.

The Roman Catholic Church is viewed very differently today. Many view it as a charitable organization, always looking after the best interests of the world. Perhaps there are indeed some Catholics whose primary job is to do exactly that, but the church has been involved in some very evil deeds as well, especially involving the Jewish people.

For centuries in Europe, Jews have been persecuted, and in many cases at the hands of the Roman Catholic Church. In fact, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini were given the title "defender of the faith" by the Church. Current pope John Paul II, when only a Polish priest, under the guise of the Vatican, secretly sold cyanide to the Nazis during World War II. The Roman Catholic involvement in the Holocaust is just the beginning, think about the Spanish Inquisition. Jews who did not convert to Catholicism were tortured and killed. Does it make you think a moment about the Vatican’s part in the Middle East peace process? It has come out that Jerusalem will be put under the administration of the Vatican by the year 2000 as a "third party" negociator. The Catholics want the city to usher in their "year of jubilee" in 2000. Could we expect something b ig to happen? The Vatican has mentioned
many occasions that it wants in center of operations moved back to Jerusalem. After all, it was discovered that Peter’s tomb is not in Rome but in Jerusalem.

2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2 Thessalonians 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

If we are truly living in the last days, than there should be incredible deception taking hold in the hearts of many people, especially "Christian" people. Scripture prophecies that there will be a great falling away from the faith, or perhaps simply a mass acceptance of deception. Right now, the
Jerusalem Council II movement involves Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Protestants, and even Messianic Jews, all aimed at reconciling the differences and coming together in a "spirit of brotherhood." From that statement you could easily conclude that what they’re doing is of the Lord. However, what does the Bible say about reconciliation? These people should be repenting of their sins before God, not just apologizing to one another. It appears that a great religious merge is about to unfold in the coming years, between those of all monotheistic faiths, and the Roman Catholic Church is at the center of it. Perhaps the false prophet of Revelation will emerge from the Catholic
Church. We’ll have to wait and find out…

Revelation 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

If you are Catholic, or involved with the Church, we would ask you to seriously reconsider where your loyalty lies. Does it lie with an organization, a pope who claims to be "christ on earth," or does it lie solely with Jesus Christ? As the end comes and as we see the merging of major religious organizations come together all in the name of ‘brotherhood’ as fundamental doctrines are cast aside in the name of "tolerance" will you go along or leave the system? The choice is up to you. You can be on the side of Christ, or the side of antichrist. Antichrist does not necessarily mean opposed to Christ, but can also mean a mimic of Him.
