Rome: Mocking a Mighty God
Time magazine's article on United Europe contained the above pic
Christian Greetings in these last days of life on earth. in the book of 2 Peter 1:20 it plainly says that, "...no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation." As Christians we are instructed not to give our own opinion of what a prophetic symbol means. We must always allow the Word of God to define its own symbols. Truth is, it is where we get prophecy in the first place anyway. Our private interpretations are absolutely useless, and if we insist on ignoring Biblical jurisprudence on this, we will become false prophets.
A wonderful truth to behold is that there are 404 verses in the book of Revelation, and out of those 404 verses, 278 of them carry the bulk of the prophetic message of that book. All 278 of those verses can be found almost word for word in all the other books of the Bible. In other words, THE BIBLE DEFINES ITSELF PERFECTLY! This is how the false prophets are identified. If they say a symbol means one thing, and then you look in your bible and find it says another, you have discovered a false prophet. It’s truly THAT easy! So… the Lord's counsel on this would be that we don't trust anyone that gives his or her personal "opinion" or "interpretation" of any Bible prophecy. To do so would be foolish and outside of God’s will. Let the Word define the Word! This is how Jesus taught, so I ask, why not us?
A quick example…
Revelation 17:3, "So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns."
We see in Revelation that there will be a governing power that is depicted as a woman riding a beast. What does this mean? In prophecy, the Bible defines a woman to be a church...
Jeremiah 6:2 says, "I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman."
We also understand the Church of Jesus Christ is considered to be the "Bride of Christ" because of many areas of Scriptures that describe her as such. And is not Christ considered the Bridegroom?
It is also commonly understood that prophecy defines a beast to be a nation. For it is written in Daniel…
Daniel 7:17, "These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth."
Daniel 7:23, "Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces."
Even in today's world, are not all nations described as beasts? For example the USA is seen as an eagle. Russia is likened unto a bear, and China even carries the image of a dragon. Many years ago Daniel was given a great vision about all the nations of the earth till the end of time. In this vision he saw the last beast to be "diverse from all the others." (Daniel 7:19) But how diverse would it be? According to Revelation 17:3 as we have already seen, this beast (nation) will have a woman (church) sitting upon it. Since prophecy defines a woman as a church, and a beast as a nation. Is there any such governing entity described in history that is designed as a church and a nation together as one. Yes there is, the Vatican of Rome. Plus, both the Political and obvious reality of this entity is that when Rome (the beast) speaks it ALWAYS speaks via the Roman Catholic Church. (the woman) It is always the “woman” that speaks or guides the “beast” in this scenario. That is in itself yet another fulfillment of Bible prophecy. For it is not a beast riding a woman, is it? It is clearly depicted in prophecy that a woman is riding a beast, and when one rides any beast, as a rider would a horse, the one riding is always the one in control. For if the rider has no control the beats would throw the rider.
Why am I mentioning all this? I know that the grand majority of you that read this Newsletter understand this basic prophetic symbolism already. So, why bring it up? Well first of all I would like to hope some people that don’t know about the woman on the beast will eventually read this Newsletter, but for those that do know about it, notice the following collection of pics…
Notice the WOMAN ON THE BEAST on that soon to be GLOBAL CURRENCY...
Seems this has been planned for a while. But I have to ask, WHY are they being so blunt about the woman on the beast? Look at it this way. Who is in control here? It’s not JUST the Vatican… right? It’s Satan running things behind closed doors. Why do you suppose he is showing such an obvious and blunt prophetic symbol out in the open like this? First you need to ask yourself this question. Who in the Universe knows about this woman on the beast? All those residing in Heavenly places, all the Remnant children on the earth below that understand prophecy, and the devil and his minions. The REST of the people are completely unaware of the prophetic symbolism here. Now, I may be wrong, but it seems to me Satan is doing two things here.
Think about this for a moment. Can you picture the Devil walking into the Throne room of the Almighty spouting bold statements about how easy it is for him to be able to flaunt Bible facts out in the open like this, and the grand majority of the people miss it? He loves to try and hurt our Lord with heartfelt sadness. And at the same time he is trying to frighten the Christians on earth by his bold, yet “fleeting” power here on earth. He wants the Christians to feel as if there’s no hope. He has almost the ENTIRE world following his lead, and no one seems to be aware of it. Please understand this simple fact. You must realize the enemy KNOWS THAT WE KNOW perfectly well what those symbols mean! Common sense people! He knows we know! He is using it as a fear tactic to make the weaker brethren fear him. Pray for those that are weak, and PRAY FOR YOURSELVES! 1 Corinthians 10:12 says, "Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall."
The warnings are being preached, and the majority of the people are ignoring it. They prefer the ear tickling entertaining churches of the world that preach smooth days ahead. PEACE AND SAFETY is their battle cry! Is this no different then Noah’s day? EVERYONE on earth saw no danger in what Noah was preaching. This is no different than today. The actual events before us may be different then Noah’s day, but the end result is the same. The World is about to end, and no one seems to care! Try sharing with someone in which the devil has been able to keep out of a Bible, and they will most likely turn a deaf ear no matter how convincing you are. Only 8 people on the ark knew the truth back then. And Noah was no ineffectual preacher either. He was a preacher of righteousness the Word of God says. Yet, no one listened outside his immediate family. Like Noah, our work is most assuredly cut out for us! We have a grand responsibility at hand. And it won't be easy, so "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." -2 Timothy 2:15
In comparing Noah's day to ours, how many of us know the truth today? The grand majority is not the least bit concerned with the prophetic fulfillment happening all around them. The fact that they publish prophetic symbols in a mocking manner like this confirms they don’t care. The enemy has effectively busied them with the cares of this life as he did in Noah's day. All of them are unaware simply because they steer clear of their Bibles. There is most assuredly "…a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:" - Amos 8:11
Rome has been very busy in Europe. This much is commonly known among believers and nonbelievers alike. The globalization card has been played out before the eyes of all residents of this planet now for some time. This too is a prophetic event most Christians understand as inevitable, and most nonbelievers are wholly blind to. The nonbelievers see it as a good thing, where the Remnant sees it for what it truly is. One of the final harbingers of the coming of the Son of man.
The last few decades has afforded many with the opportunity to watch the European Union test method after method on the European continent to build the One World Government or New World Order that prophecy states is unavoidable. Those that understand prophecy have also seen the One World Church as well as the One World Court system come to prophetic fulfillment as well. Those of us that have been following this have seen the Vatican front and center as the main player in ALL of this. Fact is, the One World Court system is actually titled the Roman International Criminal Court, is it not? And does it not carry the Vatican Solar Wheel as their logo? Rome made sure it had the ultimate, and most powerful playing card in this union before all of this came fruition. The Vatican has all but received the power they have craved! As of January 10, 2005 the Vatican now has 174 of a possible 192 countries in 100% agreement with her RIGHT NOW. I go into a little more detail regarding that fact in my January 16, 2005 Truth Provided Radio Broadcast for those of you that are interested. The Vatican is forming the prophesied global authority that answers to NO ONE! At least no one on Earth that is. Back in July of 1998, Lee Casey a constitutional lawyer with the Washington firm of Hunton & Williams made it clear that what Rome has done is a bit chilling to say the least. When commenting directly on this Roman International Criminal court, he said..., “Were talking about creating here something that exercises genuine power, real put-people-in-jail power, but that is responsible to no one but itself." (-stated in the Investment Business Daily, on Thursday July 16, 1998)
ALL students of prophecy understand what’s happening in the European Continent is about to go global. All nations are about to do as the nations in the Europe have done with the one world currency (Euro) as well as the removal of national sovereignty. (border-less nations) We will soon have a One World Governing body via the Roman Catholic Vatican. Whether Rome advertises their power in the open, or plays behind the closed doors again makes no difference. Prophecy will be fulfilled! My personal opinion is they will flaunt their global fangs as they have in the past. The Vatican loves power and recognition. The Roman Government of old will be resurrected and “"The Caesar who now addresses you, and to whom alone are obedience and fidelity due." (Pope Pius IX, in his "Discorsi" (I., p. 253) will seek complete and utter obedience. That’s right, POPE Pius IX called himself CAESAR before the people that day!
Now I hope your sitting down for this next scare tactic we find being played in the global arena. The “in your face” methods of the woman on the beast images the world over is an effective method of control for some yes. But others may need a bit more “prodding” if the enemy is going to get his plans into play. There is now evidence the powers that be have decided to adapt ancient Roman Catholic methods of torture to their list of demonic tackle. This demonic atrocity has one feature I appreciate however. It shuts the mouths of those scoffers that tag us as “conspiracy theorists” when we speak of such future mayhem as this. I am sure many are now saying to themselves, “if someone would have told me 5 years ago torture would not only be legalized, but tested on Christians, I would think they’re crazy, and completely out of their mind.” Today, we see this as a sickening reality. I wonder how many still don’t believe Sunday laws are on the horizon? How many still think that to be a conspiracy theory as well?
In my January 23, 2005 Truth Provided Radio broadcast I shared an article where the United States of America is actually funding experiments where “Christians” are to be tortured in laboratory experiments to test how strong God’s protection is for them. Here is a small excerpt of that article.

Believers go on rack to prove God relieves pain
By Ruth Gledhill, Religion Correspondent
PEOPLE are to be tortured in laboratories at Oxford University in a United States-funded experiment to determine whether belief in God is effective in relieving pain. Top neurologists, pharmacologists, anatomists, ethicists and theologians are to examine the scientific basis of religious belief and whether it is anything more than a placebo.
…While enduring the agony, they will be exposed to religious symbols such as images of the Virgin Mary or a crucifix. Their neurological responses will be measured to determine the efficacy of their faith in helping them to cope.
For the entire article .. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2-1436161,00.html
By the way, don’t’ bother hitting that link above for the “London Times” article. Turns out, as I was finishing up this Newsletter, the Times Online news source opted to pull the article! However, not before DOZENS of other news sources picked up the story. I researched this story for at least 3 weeks now to make sure it wasn’t a hoax. It’s truly that hard to believe! Here’s one that still has it online for those of you that may thing I'm kidding… http://www.news.com.au/story/0,10117,11923315-401,00.html I also placed the entire story in my "Urgent Breaking News" section of the site. (If you read this Newsletter months later, that page will end up in my Breaking News Archives) If you do a search on the Web for this article you will find A LOT of dead links back to it because the London Times yanked the article. So be patient. You will eventually run into a news source that copied the article to their server instead of merely linking back to the “Times online” server where it has now been deleted. That’s why I usually copy and paste all my articles of research to an email, or directly to the site for safe keeping.
ok.. getting back.. Besides the fact this torture scenario is merely a scare tactic designed to convince Christians to seek faiths with less persecution attached. We all know that Christians will eventually be considered terrorists. In fact, the American Media was the first to pen the phrase, “Christian Terrorist” back on June 8, 2003 in regards to the Eric Rudolph situation.
In the above article it stated that, “While enduring the agony, they will be exposed to religious symbols such as images of the Virgin Mary or a crucifix” Those are Roman CATHOLIC images of worship are they not? It was also stated in the article that, “A better understanding of the physiology of belief, the conditions that entrench it in the mind and its usefulness in mitigating pain could be crucial to developing counter-terrorist strategies for the future”
Did you catch that? It’s easy to miss, so I will try to explain. One minute they are speaking of using torture on religious people so as to see if they will have any problems torturing them. Will their God help them? Then the next minute they admit it will be used on what they define as TERRORISTS! In other words, they are openly stating in this article that they will be using torture on what they have just defined in that article as CHRISTIAN TERRORISTS! I thought it was Muslims that were causing the Terrorist problems. Why are they testing their torture on Christians? Now don't get me wrong, I am not saying they should test it on Muslims either. In fact, torture shouldn't be tested on ANYONE. But do you see what I'm saying here? If it's Muslims we're supposed to be at war with, then why are they torturing Christians? It makes about as much sense as a penny. (pun intended)
One other thing I did appreciate here is the sheer stupidity of the powers that be. Besides the fact that we, as Remnant Christians know "...Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God." (Mat. 4:7) We also know a crucifix and a statue of Mary are in no way something we consider godly in any way shape or form. Do they actually think God Almighty is going to play along with their ridiculous plans? Think about that simple fact for a moment. Do they THINK God is a puppet or something? Do they think they can sneak a Christian volunteer into their lab torture chamber, inflict torture to them, and then ask them to ask their God for strength so they can find a better way to bypass God’s protection? As if God didn’t see them walking into the lab in the first place to test Him? A TRUE Christian would never put the Lord thy God to a foolish test! And most assuredly they would never help teach an evil government on how to get around their God. As if that was possible to do anyway! The people they are bringing in those labs are NOT Christians. Christians simply don’t do that! One other obvious fact is, those "Christians" they brought into those labs are actually CATHOLICS! The fact they are using Catholic images proves this as absolute reality. Only a Catholic would be moved by those idols. The reality here is they have actually solicited the help of Roman Catholics to try and figure out how to attack God’s Remnant people! Strange as it may seem, that appears to be the case here.
Fact of the matter is this folks. If you are a Christian, a REAL Christian, you would never walk into that lab as a volunteer. Our Lord plainly states in His Word that we should never put the Lord thy God to a foolish test. This would be no different then a Christian jumping off a high tower and on the way down praying, “Lord.. I have only 50… 40…30 feet to go before I hit the pavement. Please save me?” Rest assured the only thing that’s going to break that fall is the concrete. The Lord cannot be mocked, and He most assuredly is not going to help the minions running amuck with a way to beat His own children down. Yes, the Lord does bless His children with power no man can imagine in situations like this. If He wants, He can quench flames, and has done so already! If He wants, He can stop the mouths of lions, and He has done this as well! He can even stop the Sun in its tracks for a whole day, as He has done before! But if He chooses to allow His child to die, He most assuredly will give that child all the help they need to stand before the Roman Catholic Prelates to proclaim Christ is Risen and Christ will come again!
"The sins of Babylon will be
laid open. The fearful results of a union of Church and State, the inroads of
Spiritualism, the stealthy but rapid progress of the papal power,--all will be
unmasked. By these solemn warnings the people will be stirred. Thousands upon
thousands have never listened to words like these. In amazement they hear the
testimony that Babylon is the church, fallen because of her errors and sins,
because of her rejection of the truth sent to her from Heaven. The people go to
their former teachers with the eager inquiry, Are these things so?
The ministers present fables, prophesy smooth things, to soothe their fears, and quiet the awakened conscience. But many refuse to be satisfied with the mere authority of men, and demand a plain 'Thus saith the Lord.'The popular ministry, like the Pharisees of old, are filled with anger as their authority is questioned; they denounce the message as of Satan, and stir up the sin-loving multitudes to revile and persecute those who proclaim it. "As the controversy extends into new fields, and the minds of the people are called to God's down-trodden law, Satan is astir. The power attending the message only maddens those who oppose it. The clergy put forth almost superhuman efforts to shut away the light, lest it should shine upon their flocks. By every means at their command they endeavor to suppress the discussion of these vital questions.
The church appeals to the strong arm of civil power, and in this work, papists are solicited to come to the help of Protestants. The movement for Sunday enforcement becomes more bold and decided. The law is invoked against commandment-keepers." Spirit of Prophecy, vol 4, p 424-425
one last thing...
Notice the flag the woman's holding on the beast? That flag is the official EU flag. Want to know where that flag flew first? Notice the woman on the right. That is the Roman Catholic version of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Those are the official colors of the Roman Catholic “Fatima Mary” or as she is today refereed to as QUEEN OF HEAVEN. Just about every painting of "Mary” has a circle of stars around her head, just as the EU Flag has. Plus, Mary’s “color” is BLUE, just as the EU flag. For those Catholics that seek to pray the Rosary daily and want to be “part of the group” that do so globally on a daily basis. They are compelled to join Mary’s army of prayer warriors. It’s actually called the BLUE army. I know this for a fact, for when I was a Catholic, I came very close to joining that army. I found the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour only weeks before officially joining.

In the last days Satan will use all his powers against God's people, to afflict, to distress, to discourage them, and to cause them all the trouble he possibly can. Those who know the truth and yet unite with him in this work, have lost their spiritual anointing. They are blinded by the sophistry of the enemy, and cannot see afar off. -Bible Training School, July 1, 1910 par. 1

I just want you to know that this is a great website ministry that you have put together ; and this fellowshipping is really doing a lot for me! Praise GOD for people like you and your family !!! You are all are a really great asset for the Kingdom of Heaven.
This is the first church that Ive become a part of in a long time !!! (about 20 years). but Ive been looking for a good church for a while and I feel really good about what is happening.
About 3 years ago ; I was in jail for two months ; but while in jail ; I read a book called, "Why so many denominations?" by Mark Finley. but the book got lost. So when I got out of jail; I began to search for the book on the internet. and ran into a lot of other resources. Ive Always been interested in prophecy; but; (as you know) Im not a very good reader. That is about the time I finally picked up the book Called, "National Sunday Law" by Jan a Marcussen. Looking through the book ; I saw footnotes of some of the sources that were drawn upon, and one of the sources I was interested in finding was that of Ellen G White. When it was shown to me at the Saturday morning worship ; I didn't even realize it. then finally it hit me while reading some of the website. This is the same material Ive been looking for (for quite a while !!!).
Thank GOD for you, and your family, and our Christian family !!!
We did not decorate with anything except snowmen..stuff I would use for winter...anyway....no wreaths or holly or what have you. We're trying to ease our family into seeing that we're not really "doing" christmas anymore...and this year we were just sick of doing what the world exepcts....
..So last night my husband and I were listening to you, and by the way it was really clear too, I almost didn't recognize your voice, anyway he said that we were just going to have to let them know we're not doing it...period.
Thanks for speaking to us and we know what we have
to do...and Adonai will strengthen us to do it.
Be well and be blessed in Yeshua Ha Mashiach,
Michele in Mo.
What I have just read is remarkable!! It
was only last night that I prayed to the Lord for guidence in finding the truth
for I have gotten myself into the wiccan way of life, or shall I say almost
did, I prayed for permission to explore so I may find truth and was guided here
and to your findings. I will continue to read what you have posted and I will
turn to the word of God in his book for the truth, My only question is , under
what publication do I pick up my copy of the Bible ?
My Response is.. Use the KJV Bible. Click here for some reasons why the other bibles are dangerous.
My fervent prayer is that you are blessed by the Truth Provided in this Newsletter. I also pray you share it with others that are trapped in Babylon.
Truth is Truth!
Can you please help Presents of God ministry
