Pope declares Catholicism "Mystery of Iniquity"

Greetings in these last moments of life on Earth. I pray that you are ready for what is about to occur and is so apparent in these last days. The return of our Lord Jesus Christ as King of kings, and Lord of lords is very close in coming. Maranatha!

2 Thessalonians 2:3-7, "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;  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.  Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?  And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way."

Only ONE place in the Scriptures speaks of the "mystery of iniquity." Only one passage can be found on this from cover to cover of the Holy Writ. This passage bluntly describes the "mystery of iniquity" as being that entity that proclaims itself to be above God Himself. See here how Pope John Paul II just admitted on May 4, 2001 that the Roman Catholic church is in fact that, "mystery of iniquity."

"That We May Walk Together in the Ways of the Kingdom"
Papal Address to Orthodox Archbishop of Athens

...It is tragic that the assailants, who had set out to secure free access for Christians to the Holy Land, turned against their own brothers in the faith. The fact that they were Latin Christians [Roman Catholics] fills Catholics with deep regret. How can we fail to see here the 'mysterium iniquitatis' at work [2 Thess. 2:7] in the human heart? - Pope John Paul II, May 4th, 2001 Papal Address to Orthodox Archbishop of Athens ENTIRE ARTICLE ~ "That We May Walk Together in the Ways of the Kingdom"

Amazing isn't it? The Word of God declares the Antichrist to be the mystery of iniquity, and here we see the Pope declaring his church to be that very thing, WORD FOR WORD in tune with that which is written! PLUS, that same passage identifies one major feature that is openly characteristic of Antichrist. That main feature is, "...that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;  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." As many of you already know, my ministry has a collection of prophetic facts concerning this BEAST in Rome on my website. If you were to print the entire site, you would find the Lord has blessed me thus far with a collection of facts that would generate now over 1500 pages of printed text. However, all of it cannot compare with the major importance placed upon this main feature. This MAIN feature of Antichrist is so blunt, so overwhelmingly evil, so arrogant, and so prophetically accurate that I cherish every opportunity to expose it for what it is.

As we all know it is written within the Word of our wonderful Creator that Satan desires to be worshipped in PLACE of the True God of Creation. For it is written in, Isaiah 14:12-14, "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High."

The Word of the Lord tells us that the Devil is very desirous of sitting on His throne. And as many of you that have studied the Scriptures believe, the facts held therein are realized!. The Roman Catholic church is indeed the actual throne of Satan in the Universe.  For he was most certainly cast down to this Earth to reside until his final judgment was executed upon him and his followers. And as we have also discovered within the Word, the Devil needs to acquire the hearts of men so as to enact his "doctrines of demons" upon all those who choose to ignore the Truth of the Creator so as to embrace the lies of the destroyer. So with all that in mind, is there evidence that the men leading the Roman Catholic church are possessed by this fallen angel called Satan? Do the Roman Catholic Popes claim to be Jesus Christ incarnate? Do they really preach they are "another god on earth?" Are they truly exposing their possession by openly declaring that which Satan desires?

Notice this as well. NOT ALL those in Athens are blind to he who declares himself "ANOTHER GOD" on Earth. Not all eyes are closed to so blunt a fact as this...

ATHENS (Reuters) - "He came to subjugate Greece. He wants to become the world dictator of the church," said Father Sidiros, one of the protesters. ...conservative Orthodox believers have demonstrated for weeks against the arrival of the man they call the "arch-heretic" and whom they blame for the schism and a variety of other ills, including the Holy Inquisition. -Pope Calls for Harmony with Angry Orthodox

Think about it. Almost 1000 years ago the Greek church splits from the Vatican in the schism of 1054 AD. And now that ALL the prophecies are in place, we see the Pope doing exactly as the Word says Antichrist will do. Many of you that have studied the Prophecies and have watched the Daily News know, the Pope IS looking to make the Roman Government the main controlling power on Earth once again. But first he needs to be busy on a major public relations blitz. This Pope has been VERY instrumental in trying to get all the World to forget about the hellish, as well as torturous facts concerning Rome. Everywhere you look you see article after article where the Pope is preaching reconciliation. Constantly we are bombarded with all the so called "wonderful works" of the Vatican and it's cohorts by every avenue of the media. Literally hundreds of thousands of Reporters on a weekly basis speak of the Pope as a man of mercy or gentleness. TV, Radio, Video, Audio tapes, Websites, tracts, etc are designed to glorify the pope, his actions, his desires, and his plans!  Notice this statement made by the Pope a few days ago that was covered with glee by the press...

Pope Prays for Peace in Ruined Golan Heights City  
By Victor L. Simpson Associated Press Writer

 QUNEITRA, Syria (AP) -- Preaching from the rubble of a Golan Heights city that is a reminder of Syria's war with Israel, Pope John Paul II prayed Monday for peace and forgiveness in the Middle East. The 80-year-old pontiff knelt for 20-minutes on a wooden stand on the shattered stone floor of a Greek Orthodox church - within view of an Israeli radar station across the valley. "May all believers find the courage to forgive one another, so that the wounds of the past may be healed, and not be a pretext for further suffering in the present," the pope said, looking exhausted on the third day of a pilgrimage to promote reconciliation.

Has anyone noticed?  This Pope seems to be the only one spear heading all this talk about "forgetting the past." I ask, is it to drum into our heads that we should forget the fact that the Roman church did in fact kill 150 MILLION Christians? COUNT ON IT! The Roman Catholic church IS the one that did this. And that's why the Roman Catholic church is constantly talking about FORGETTING THE PAST! The church of Rome has hellish plans for the near future, and it cannot fulfill these plans UNTIL the people of the World truly embrace this smokescreen as truth. And prophetic fact is, THEY WILL!

What would you say if I told you that the Antichrist is right now proving Bible prophecy 100% authentic? What would you say if I were to share with you certain prophecies in the Bible that declare certain actions of Antichrist, and then share with you certain comments of the media that speak almost "word for word" as the Bible does when exposing the beast? Would you say that's impossible? Would you say Antichrist would never take a chance at exposing himself so graphically in the media? Would you say the Popes of Rome would never be that blind of prophetic facts so as to admit about themselves that which is written concerning Antichrist, and thereby identifying themselves openly as same?

First off I would like for you to picture in your mind the Antichrist standing on the mount of Olives proclaiming himself Jesus Christ on Earth. Reason being, one day very soon this will be a reality. The devil will personify Jesus Christ in His glorified state as is depicted in Revelation before all the World so as to deceive literally billions to their second death and eternal graves. The deception is very obvious, still however, billions will be hoodwinked! But that is not my point for this newsletter. My point is this. It is written in Matthew 4:6, "And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone."

Here we see the devil having no problem whatsoever using that which is written in the Scriptures. He is using Psalms 91:11,12 completely out of context so as to tempt even Jesus Christ Himself in the desert. Such arrogance! The devil has no problem using the Word of God to his advantage. He does this mainly because he desires to cOnFuSe those that read the Word of God by twisting it's meanings. He hopes to preach "another Gospel" unto all so as to steer them from the real Truth that exposes him as well as his agenda. He has the ability to do this to literally billions simply because they do NOT trust the Word of God as the ONLY source of Truth. They are those that have fallen for the lie of Satan spewed by the Popes of Rome that the Word of God is a "dead letter" and they must trust the interpretations of Rome so as to understand that which is written. Again I say, Such arrogance! Such boldness! The devil actually approaches Jesus Christ Himself and try's to tempt Him using the very Word of God! And now we see him doing it again in the world today. This "accuser of the brethren" has been very arrogant from day one. He stands before all the Universe proclaiming he is more powerful than He who created him. His arrogance is overwhelmingly amazing! Think of it! He actually stands before God Himself accusing all Christians and how he has been able to get them to believe his twisted Scriptures over and above that which is TRULY written. It's as if he is bluntly stating to the Lord that he can shove the Bible in our faces, open it to the very passages we need to see, spew unto us what he wants us to believe, and still we won't see what the Lord has written to us as a warning in the very books he is shoving at us! Case in point is directly connected to the prophecies that openly expose the Antichrist, his goals, desires, and actions.

For example... The Word declares in prophecy that not only will the Antichrist receive a deadly wound after its 1260 year "first" reign as a persecuting church. (See further facts here .. It also declares that the Lamb Horned beast (USA) will help this beast AFTER it's wound is healed. It says in Revelation 13:12, "And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed." Not only did the USA report to all the world that the wound was healed in 1929. But it actually used the same terminology that the prophecy uses in regards to the wound...

Mussolini and (Cardinal) Gasspari sign historic Roman pact. 

"The Roman question tonight was a thing of the past, and the Vatican was at peace with Italy... In affixing the autographs to the memorable document healing the wound of many years, extreme cordiality was displayed on both sides" -The San Francisco Chronicle. Feb. 11, 1929

The devil is flexing his muscles before all the Universe declaring that "YES, prophecy states the wound will be healed! And my choice of herald and helper declares exactly that!" Not only did the nation of the USA do the bidding of the devil in reporting this historic fact. The reporters were totally blind to their graphic admission. They almost used word for word as to what he prophecy said would occur! The prophecy stated the deadly wound will be healed and the reporter stated that the signature was "healing the wound" in his report! This is what happens when you have people who do NOT understand prophecy. They will bluntly miss what the Bible describes with 100% accuracy. Fact is, the devil is toying with those that have NOT the "testimony of Jesus Christ" so as to spit in the face of the Lord declaring. "Look God! Your Bible said this word for word! I have proved to all the Universe that YOUR CHILDREN don't believe your Bible! They believe my lies over and above your Truth! They worship ME! They don't even trust YOU!"

Finishing the passage that I opened with in this newsletter, one can see yet another prophetic fact come to be. It is written in 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12, "And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."

The World is seeing prophetic events happening now on almost a daily basis, and they MISS all of it! 100%! Why? Because they love the lie over the Truth! This truly reminds me of what occurred in 70ad. It was prophesied by Jesus in Matthew 24:15,16 "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:"

In A.D.66 when Cestius came against the city, but unaccountably withdrew, the Christians discerned in this the sign foretold by Christ, and fled while 1,100,000 Jews are said to have been killed in the terrible siege in A.D. 70. (The attack of the Roman warrior Titus occurred in 70AD killing the 1,100,000 Jews) Eusebius, Church History, book 3, chap. 5

The Christians living at the time Cestius came against the city and withdrew understood exactly what was happening because they understood prophecy. They remembered the prophecy Jesus made in Matthew 24:15,16 and fled to the mountains before the Roman army returned. Could it be Cestius was "casing the joint" as we say in today's lingo? For whatever reason, the Lord saw fit to warn His children in advance of this day and they in turn glorified Him by believing His prophecy and fleeing as He suggested they should. As the history book records we see that the non-believing Jews saw no danger when Cestius stopped by a few years before actually attacking. And because they chose to deny Jesus and ignore His prophecy, they paid for their disbelief with their very lives! 1,100,000 men woman and children DIED that day!!!! However, the believing Jews as well as believing Gentiles were safe outside the city! Think of it, ALL those in the city could have been spared a horrendous death had they just believed in this one mere prophecy of Jesus! Think about today and all the prophecies that have been fulfilled over the years. What an honor! To be loved so deeply by the Almighty Creator that He would warn us in advance with 100% accuracy. SOME still say however that all this talk about the end has been going on for years. Fact is, Jesus warned them forty years prior, and even AFTER the sign was fulfilled, the actual attack did not occur FOR FOUR YEARS! Plus, look at Noah preaching for 120 YEARS about the end by flood back then. Does this "tarrying" declare it will NOT happen? Habakkuk 2:3 declares, "For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry."

Why is it in today's world most Christians cannot discern such graphic prophetic facts? Why are most Christians ignoring the simple and easy to understand prophecies designed to WARN THEM OF DANGER just like the one Jesus declared 40 years before Jerusalem was destroyed by the Roman abomination? It's mainly because of ANOTHER prophetic fact that was also fulfilled and then recorded by the media of our day...

FIRST the prophecy...

2 Peter 3:3  ...there shall come in the last days scoffers...
2 Timothy 4:3,4  ...they will not endure sound doctrine; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

The fulfillment...

A poll taken by the "Pittsburgh Press" on Sept. 24th 1977, revealed that only 2% of American student ministers actually believe in the second coming of Jesus!

That poll was taken over 20 years ago! These "students" are Pastors, and Teachers TODAY! That is why most Christians are unaware of such graphic prophetic fulfilments. Their religious leaders do NOT preach it unto them. Mainly because they don't believe it! And if they don't preach it, they can't possibly learn it, and what they don't learn they cannot believe. (See Romans 10:14 on this fact) That way, when the prophecies become more apparent as we see today, MOST Christians have no clue as to what they are looking at. DON'T BE FOOLED! The devil PLANNED all this people! That is another reason why on March 12, 2000 Pope John Paul II was able to admit to the entire world that the Roman Catholic church did EXACTLY as the Bible said ANTICHRIST would do when he admitted the Church of Rome killed over 150 MILLION Christians! (See proof of his admission here... MOST of the Christians in today's world never caught that! Most Christians did not see the prophetic significance of that "Mea Culpa" of John Paul II. They simply saw the Pope apologizing for the evils in the past and looked upon it as nice gesture of the pope, one worthy of praise!

It's just like 70 AD all over again! FEW believers in Jesus Christ see the prophetic warnings, and MOST of the remainder of the so called "children of God" simply ignore the warnings. And almost every Christian I meet do NOT study Daniel or Revelation! And just as the devil was able to convince 1,100,000 Jews that the prophecy of Jesus was bogus so as to hood wink them all the way to their destruction. So is he doing the same thing today! Only a "few" within the true Remnant of God are able to see these facts. Why? Because we understand what Jesus meant when it was penned in Matthew 24:15. He said, "...(whoso readeth, let him understand) " Jesus is declaring that we MUST understand prophecy! We MUST define those prophetic symbols so that we too can discern the signs of the times. We must learn how the Bible defines certain symbols in prophecy! This is crucial! (See "Prophetic Symbols") Else, Jesus WILL come as a thief in the night for you. However, for those true followers of Christ, He will NOT come as a thief in the night because they are prepared. And for those of you that never heard your preachers declare Jesus does NOT come as a thief to believers, see this passage they CHOOSE not to preach to you!

1 Thessalonians 5:1-4, "But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.  For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.  But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief."

The majority of the preachers of today preach that Jesus IS coming as a thief in the night to believers. Yet the Bible says the exact opposite here. The Bible is easily saying in this passage that those that "shall not escape sudden destruction" are the very same ones that will see Jesus coming as a thief. It also bluntly states that the believers are not in darkness, and that day will not come as a thief unto them. If people would only open their Bibles and see that it truly does have all the information readily available so as to expose the transparent lies of Hell being spewed from all those pulpits. It truly is a no brainer folks! It's ALL written down right there in black and white. However, it is also prophesied in Mark 4:15, that, "... Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word..." The devil has been very busy preaching "another gospel" unto all the Christians of the world. And the awful sad fact of it all is, it's working just as prophecy declared it would. The REAL sad thing is. This can ALL be avoided if the Christians would just put their foot down and declare that they will NOT go against that which is written! Christians have to stand firm if they truly do worship the Christian God. They must wave their banner high! And their banner should be...

"To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them."-Isaiah 8:20

Think about that for a moment. If you are a Christian. And claim to worship the Christian God. And you also claim to believe in the Christian Bible. WHY is it so many Christians are doing the things MAN has written? Why are so many Christians putting faith in the traditions of men above that which is written BY THEIR GOD? Why do so many Christians knowingly embrace words they KNOW are  NOT found in the Bible? Why do so many Christians trust mankind instead of the Creator of mankind? Because they are those that have, "...changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen." -Romans 1:25

Tell them! Tell all those that have been trusting in the liars, that they are embracing the MYSTERY OF INIQUITY as prophecy said the wicked would! Ask them do they want to be counted among the wicked?
