Editor: Steve Van Nattan: Nicholas gets into trouble when he tries to define the Church by using the Old Testament prophets. This is how about 80% of all heresy has come into existence over the past 2000 years. The conclusion that the Roman Catholic Church is the Whore Church and sits on the seven hills of Revelation 17 is presupposition based on nothing in the Word of God, so please ignore it. Nicholas' work on the Roman Catholic Church and its plans to subject the world is very useful and that is why I used his article.
There is useful information here, but it must be weeded of rubbish.
The Babylonian Vatican
In the Scriptures we find a prophetic explanation of the church of Antichrist. The Lord God who is a God of divine order gives us many identifiable facts that point to this very church. So many that it makes it overwhelmingly easy for the child of God THAT TRUSTS their Heavenly Father and His Word to see. Please understand this is the KEY! For if you do not trust Him or His Word, then it may be you this passage describes as one who embraces the flesh over and above the Spirit...
1 Corinthians 2:14, "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."
A few weeks ago a dear friend of this ministry brought the following prophetic fact to my attention. Please note the following proclamation made by Pope John Paul II on March 25, 2000 in in fact a fulfillment of "ONE" of the identifiable characteristics of Antichrist himself. If you would like to see a summery of the "major" characteristics of Antichrist, check out this new page I just set up online... http://www.localline2.com/~nicholas/666-CHAR.htm
THE POPE IDENTIFIES HIMSELF AS "THE SWEET CHRIST"
Pope John Paul II, in a 1996 "Apostolic Exhortation," encouraged Catholics to reverence the papacy as the "sweet Christ on earth." Following is an excerpt --
"In founders and foundresses [of the consecrated orders of nuns and priests, etc.] we see a constant and lively sense of the Church, which they manifest by their full participation in all aspects of the Church's life, and in THEIR READY OBEDIENCE TO THE BISHOPS AND ESPECIALLY TO THE ROMAN PONTIFF. Against this background of love towards Holy Church, 'the pillar and bulwark of the truth' (1 Tim 3:15), we readily understand the devotion of Saint Francis of Assisi for 'THE LORD POPE', the daughterly outspokenness of Saint Catherine of Siena towards the one whom she called 'SWEET CHRIST ON EARTH', the apostolic obedience and the sentire cum Ecclesia of Saint Ignatius Loyola, and the joyful profession of faith made by Saint Teresa of Avila: 'I am a daughter of the Church'. We can also understand the deep desire of Saint Theresa of the Child Jesus: 'In the heart of the Church, my mother, I will be love'. These testimonies are representative of the full ecclesial communion which the Saints, founders and foundresses, have shared in diverse and often difficult times and circumstances. THEY ARE EXAMPLES WHICH CONSECRATED PERSONS NEED CONSTANTLY TO RECALL if they are to resist the particularly strong centrifugal and disruptive forces at work today. A DISTINCTIVE ASPECT OF ECCLESIAL COMMUNION IS ALLEGIANCE OF MIND AND HEART TO THE MAGISTERIUM OF THE BISHOPS, an allegiance which must be lived honestly and clearly testified to before the People of God by all consecrated persons, especially those involved in theological research, teaching, publishing, catechesis and the use of the means of social communication. BECAUSE CONSECRATED PERSONS HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN THE CHURCH, THEIR ATTITUDE IN THIS REGARD IS OF IMMENSE IMPORTANCE FOR THE WHOLE PEOPLE OF GOD" (Pope John Paul II, "Apostolic Exhortation on the Consecrated Life and Its Mission in the Church and in the World," to the bishops and clergy, religious orders and congregations, societies of apostolic life, secular institutes, and all the faithful, given in Rome, at Saint Peter's, March 25, 1996)
What we see here is an open and obvious prophetic fact that the Lord God Almighty is one that accurately describes all that is Antichrist to the minutest detail. It is written in Revelation 13:1 that the organization of Antichrist will be that of a blasphemous nature. One that will actually think to "take the place of God" on Earth. Is it not written in 1 John 2:22 that Antichrist will be one that denies Jesus is the Christ? And does not this Pope openly declare HIMSELF to be the Christ in the above article? Well, that very same Scripture also declare him to be a LIAR. For it IS written...
1 John 2:22, "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son."
In Revelation 17:5 we read, "And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."
In this newsletter I would like to share "just a few" of the key points relating to the "Whore of Babylon" and what the Bible has to say about her. There are many aspects to this prophecy, but what I would like to do at this time is to just touch on a few of the major BLUNT ones that every Christian should be aware of. I do so in the hopes that you are blessed with enough information so as to have the "mystery" revealed unto you as to WHO this Babylonian woman is.
In Revelation 17:3-6, we find... "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. 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: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration."
Here we see a few prophetic symbols describing certain aspects pertaining to the church of Antichrist. How does the Bible define these symbols for us?
Woman = church
Editor: Steve Van Nattan: Please notice the faulty use of Old Testament teaching on Israel for the Church. I have to disclaimer this since it leads directly to British Israelism. The only thing I want you to see here is that the Roman Catholic Church is the present representation of the Whore system. The Whore is right now vastly expanding through the efforts of Islamic Mullahs, the Dalai Lama, TBN, Billy Graham, Jack Van Impe, and thousands of others from all religious origins.
Jeremiah 6:2 says, "I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman."
Who is Zion?
Isaiah 51:16, "... and say unto Zion, Thou art my people."
Scarlet color = Sin
Isaiah 1:18, "... your sins be as scarlet"
Beast = Kingdom / Nation
Daniel 7:17 tells us that, "These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth."
Blasphemy = To claim to be as God
John 10:33, "The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God."
Seven heads = seven mountains
Editor: Steve Van Nattan: As we discussed above, the context of the Revelation 17 text is in terms of the Antichrist bringing the world rulers under his authority. The seven heads are just that-- seven heads of seven nations in a closer circle of power than the ten.
Revelation 17:9, "And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth." (See Strong's # 3735. The definition of "Mountains" here is also "Mount, or Hill")
Ten Horns = 10 Nations of the Earth
I will let my favorite preacher answer this one... :)
During Pagan Rome's tenure (Rev 12:3,4) they represented the 10 barbarian tribes that supported the papacy in eventually bringing down the Roman empire. (Dan 7:23,24) These tribes later became modern Europe. In the last days, they represent all the nations of the world UNITED in the end time coalition (Rev 16:14; 17:12,13,16) which will support "Babylon the great" in her warfare against God's people. God's end time church page 4 (Amazing facts Study Guide # 23)
Blood of the Saints = Martyrdom
First I want you to understand that Daniel 7:23
tells us this Beast will be "diverse from all kingdoms." We need to know
this prophetic fact for a reason that I will share in a moment. Please understand
this woman that is sitting ON the beast is actually a CHURCH sitting on a NATION
because of how Daniel defines a "beast" in prophecy. When Daniel said, there
will be a kingdom that will arise that will be TOTALLY DIFFERENT (diverse)
from any other kingdom that ever existed on Earth, he wasn't kidding! This is
one MAJOR prophetic description that cannot be ignored. The Woman/Church that
sits upon this Beast/Nation has never happened before Daniel's time. And as
we see in documented recorded history, it only happened ONCE after Daniel's
prophecy. There is only one place on Earth that this prophetic description can
be seen perfectly fulfilled in. The Vatican! How so? Never was there a nation
that was both a nation AND a church that the same time! NEVER! With that
in mind, lets take a look at these symbols and see do they truly line up with
the Vatican of the Roman Catholic church?
Woman = church
Is the Catholic church indeed a CHURCH?
Of course it is.
Scarlet color = Sin
Does the Roman Catholic Church acknowledge the fact that it is a sin filled nation?
For a comparatively small list of historic facts concerning the sins of this church's rather well documented history. Stop by this page entitled, "Catholicism in a nutshell."
Beast = nation
Is the Catholic Church also a nation?
Yes it is
Blasphemy = To claim to be as God
Do the Pope's of the Roman Catholic church proclaim themselves to be God on Earth?
"The Pope has power to change times, to abrogate laws, and to dispense with all things, even the precepts of Christ". "The Pope has authority and has often exercised it, to dispense with the command of Christ." This is from Decretal, de Tranlatic Episcop. Cap.
"The Pope is not only the representative of
Jesus Christ, he is Jesus Christ himself, hidden under the veil of flesh."
Catholic National July 1895.
"We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty" ...Pope Leo XIII
"For thou art the shepherd, thou art the physician, thou art the director, thou art the husbandman, finally thou art another God on earth." Labbe and Cossart's "History of the Councils." Vol. XIV, col. 109
The title "Lord God the Pope" is found within a gloss of Extravagantes of Pope John XXII, title 14, chapter 4,
Don't forget about the NEW article above where the Pope is declaring himself "The Sweet Christ" as well!
(NOTE...this is only "one" definition of blasphemy. Another is claiming to have the power to "forgive sins" Case in point = Mark 2:7, which states, "Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?" The "confessional" of the Roman Catholic Church is indeed yet another identifiable feature exposing the Vatican as Antichrist's dwelling)
Seven heads = seven mountains
Does Rome really reside on Seven mountains/hills? (Strong's # 3735)
Yes it does. Do a search online for "Seven Hills" and you will find numerous sites that prove Rome does indeed sit upon the seven hills as Revelation declares.
Rome (Rome before Augustus)
Rome (Rome before Augustus)Ancient Rome was built on the east, or left, bank of the Tiber. The seven hills of the ancient city are the Palatine, Capitoline, Quirinal, Viminal, Esquiline, Caelian, and Aventine. Tradition tells of the founding of Rome by ROMULUS in 753 B.C. and of rule by the TARQUIN family, the Etruscan royal house (see ETRUSCAN CIVILIZATION). The young city was probably under Etruscan rule until c.500 B.C., when the Romans overthrew the monarchy and established the Roman republic. The PATRICIAN class controlled the government, but the majority PLEBS in time gained much power and privilege. In 390 B.C. Rome was sacked by the Gauls, but during the 4th and 3d cent. B.C. it extended its influence over W Latium and S Etruria, conquered the Samnites, and became master of central and S Italy. Rome also came in full contact with Greek culture, which modified Roman life tremendously. Rome's rapid conquests met the like ambitions of CARTHAGE, which ruled the W Mediterranean. In a titanic struggle called the PUNIC WARS, Rome utterly destroyed Carthage. The Roman Republic then turned its attention eastward and rapidly expanded Roman dominion. At home, however, class dissension produced slave uprisings, e.g., that of SPARTACUS, and attempts were made at reform (see GRACCHI, family). Rome was forced by the Social War (90-88 B.C.) to extend citizenship widely in Italy, but the republic was nevertheless doomed. The struggle between Marius and SULLA led to a civil war. POMPEY emerged as a popular champion and found an ally in Julius CAESAR, a popular democratic leader. With Marcus Licinius Crassus (see CRASSUS, family), Pompey and Caesar formed the First Triumvirate (60 B.C.). Caesar then left Rome and acquired fame in the GALLIC WARS. Within ten years Pompey and Caesar fell out, and by his victory at Pharsala (48 B.C.) Caesar became master of Rome. The rule of Caesar completed the destruction of the republic and laid the foundations of the empire. - Encyclopedia.com http://www.encyclopedia.com/art icles/11109.html
Editor: Steve Van Nattan: Again, this is NOT in the Word of God. There is virtually no way, and no cross reference, to justify making "mountains" in Revelation 17 into "hills" in popular prophetic theory. In fact, the hills of Rome are very subdued, and they NEVER figure in biblical truth in any way. "Mountains" is a word given, in the Bible and in history, to nations and kingdoms. Mount Zion and Mount Seir are classic examples. Please understand that I disclaimer the above paragraph 100%, but it does show the classic lack of biblical proof texting. I discuss this more in another article in this series.
Ten Horns = 10 Nations of the Earth
(See above explanation on this topic)

HOLY OFFICE STILL EXISTS
Pope John Paul II Revives Inquisition
The thought of a revived Holy Office of the Inquisition would pacify some and offend others. Nevertheless, the "Holy Office" still exists. Only it's name has been changed. Pope John Paul II has been instrumental in its revival. One may argue that this Ratzinger run agency is merely an attempt by the Catholic Church to root out communism or backslidden priests and their practices. However, with John Paul II's objective to implement "God's mandate" by creating a global church-state which will administer from traditional Roman Catholic theology, is enough cause for alarm. Malachi Martin has already stated in his book, "The Keys of this Blood," that the pope will not tolerate any belief systems that oppose his, not on a civil or church level. In John Paul II the world will behold a tyrant who will coldly execute direct orders against those whom he deems are heretics or immoral. Moreover, like his papal predecessors, John Paul II will carry out his "Godly mandate" in the name of Christ, or perhaps Mary. May God help us all. -By Kathleen R. Hayes Feb 1991, NRI Trumpet Page 3
"The Catholic Church has persecuted ... when she thinks it is good to use physical force she will use it... Will the Catholic Church give bond that she will not persecute?... The Catholic Church gives no bonds for her *good behavior*." -Western Watchman, Dec. 24, 1908 (emphasis added)
Did you also notice this...? In Revelation 17:4, it boldly proclaims, "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:"
No one on planet earth is a stranger to the gold, precious stones, and pearls that are literally dripping from ever nook and cranny of the Vatican's walls, ceilings, and display cases. As for the colors scarlet and purple? These are indeed the official colors of the Roman Catholic church, not unlike the colors of the decadent gangs of any major city in the USA. One can see this fact overwhelmingly displayed in the pageantry of Rome. Christmas, Easter, and the so called "holy days of obligation" embraced within this church offer all with eyes to see the multitudes of Cardinals, Bishops, Priests, and yes, even the Pope himself arrayed in the colors spoken of in the Words of a God of absolute accuracy. PURPLE AND SCARLET!
We just covered a "small" list of the massive amount of prophecies declared in the Word of a God. Prophecies of 100% accuracy that no man can hope to come close to. To cover all the prophecies in detail would make for a book of a grandiose girth. For we are very aware as Christians that embrace the Word of our God. For every act of our Lord Jesus we know there is a counterfeit evil act designed to appear "Christlike" that will ConfUsE the heart that peers upon it in a most decadent way. That's why Jesus declared that we should "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." Matthew 7:15
I started "Presents of God ministry" a little over 15 years ago. I have discovered many facts concerning the Roman Catholic Church that link it directly with the prophecies in the Word concerning the Whore of babylon. But without a doubt, the most graphic and most exposing of all these prophecies that I have seen over the last 15 years would have to be the absolute direct connection of the Pagan Babylonian system of Idolatry, with the Roman Catholic church of today.
First notice the collection of documented quotes that are (thank to the WWW) are extremely easy to research as authentic... (For additional documented historic quotes click here)
Cardinal Newman admits in his book that; the "temples, incense, oil lamps, votive offerings, holy water, Holidays, and seasons of devotion, processions, blessings of the fields, sacerdotal vestments, the tonsure (of priests, munks and nuns), images, and statues... are all of PAGAN ORIGIN." -The Development of the Christian Religion Cardinal Newman p.359
The penetration of the religion of Babylon became so general and well known that Rome was called the "New Babylon." -Faith of our fathers 1917 ed. Cardinal Gibbons, p. 106
"In order to attach to Christianity great attraction in the eyes of the nobility, the priests adopted the outer garments and adornments which were used in pagan cults." -Life of Constantine, Eusabius, cited in Altai-Nimalaya, p. 94
"The Church did everything it couldto stamp out such 'pagan' rites, but had to capitualet and allow the rites to continue with only the name of the local diety changed to some Christian saint's name." -Religious Tradition and Myth. Dr. Edwin Goodenough, Professor of Religion, Harvard University. p. 56, 57
"Confiding then in the power of Christianity to resist the infection of evil, and to transmute the instruments and appendages of demon worship to an evangelical use... the rulers of the church from early times were prepared should occasion arise, to adopt, or imitate, or sanction the existing rites and customs of the populace." -Development of Christian Doctrine, Cardinal Newman. p. 372
"...The world, cloaked with a form of righteousness, walked into the church. Now the work of corruption rapidly progressed. Paganism, while appearing to be vanquished, became the conqueror. Her spirit controlled the church. Her doctrines, ceremonies, and superstitions were incorporated into the faith and worship of the professed followers of Christ." -The Great Controversy, p. 50
Now notice this (growing) list of Babylonian ritualistic worship provisions that are now found to be incorporated into the Roman Catholic system of worship requirements. By the way, Scriptures also declare that the Whore of Babylon is also the MOTHER OF HARLOTS in Revelation 17:5. In other words, if your Church is doing as this church, then it is a daughter of the Whore. Look at the following Pagan rituals and see if your church is doing this as well...
As research continues, this list will

PAGAN GNOSTIC VIEWS PERSISTENT IN CHURCHES TODAY
1. Allegorization or mythologicalization of Scripture to fit views.
2. Belief that only the pneumatic (spiritual) part of man is redeemable. (modern disavowel of bodily resurrection)
3. De-emphasis on the concept of eschatology in favor of the existential movement (the experience). (This "experience" was the Pagan "voraclular exstatic utterences" or 'Tongues' that was placed over and above the Prophetic facts confirming the soon Second Coming of Christ)
4. Minimizing of sin, miracles, demons in higher circles. (Sin can be "venial" and men can perform miracles)
5. Theology philosophized or spiritualized away.
6. A non-flesh of Christ. An emanation of light. (This influence led to the holy flesh idea. Jesus was taught to be "only pure light because God was light.") -The Nag Hammond Gnostic Texts and the Bible, by Abdrew K. Helmbold
Number 6 was their Cardinal doctrine that anything in the flesh is evil, therefore man could NEVER obey the Law, and Jesus must have had "extra holy flesh" not tainted with the false doctrine of "Original Sin" making the virgin birth an act capable of proving Mary was a perpetual virgin because Jesus was a "special" man that needed not the same birth and life of regular men. This btw causes us to believe that we are incapable of doing as did Jesus simply because now we see Jesus as a "SUPER Human" and not having the "Original Sin" that we had. Or He had a "Holy Flesh" that we cannot obtain. Therefore, why bother even trying to walk as He did?
"The Gnostic error that Jesus had a different body then we are, was a doctrine that has changed the face of the entire Christian world. John called it the teaching or the spirit of Antichrist" -Jim Arrabito "666 & the Mark"
Where does John teach that...?
1 John 4:2-3, "Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world."
Now for some articles in reagrds to what the Pope is up to lately...
John Paul II, with an array of
actors and musicians, will recite prayers he has written for the compact
disc World Voice 2000, to be released by Columbia Records in September, USA Today reported. A video, DVD, and book are in the works. ..."It's not about Catholicism, it's about spirituality," said Rick Garson of Maxx International, the group producing the recording, the newspaper reported. It is a "light at the end of the tunnel" for young people surrounded by school shootings and violence, he said. Versions are planned in Italian and Spanish. ...Country, pop, and rock musicians are taking part. They include teen-age stars Britney Spears, 'N Sync, Monica, LeeAnn Rimes, and 98 Degrees, along with adult recording artists Vince Gill, Celine Dion, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, and Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry. Actors James Earl Jones, Brooke Shields, and Dennis Franz also will read, -USA Today reported.
Let me see if I get this right. The Pope who CLAIMS to be a Christian is about to appeal to the TEENS of the World by using Satan the "ANGEL OF MUSIC" (See Ezekiel chapter 28) and all his cohorts to get the job done? Not surprised, for we all know it was NOT the Biblical Rock that built this church. It is the fallen angel of music that is responsible. And as we see, his "true colors" are now coming forth. Not only is he using the decadent music of "rock and roll" to preach his hellish gospel. He is also using those in the entertainment business that have an open an obvious problem with numerous areas of SIN.
US HOUSE VOTES TO GRANT GOLD MEDAL TO POPE WASHINGTON, DC
- The US House of Representatives on Tuesday voted to grant the Congressional Gold Medal, the nation's highest civilian honor, to Pope John Paul II. The proposal passed 416-1 to honor the Holy Father who has used his office as leader of the world's one billion Catholics to promote "the freedom and dignity of every individual human being" and "using his moral authority to hasten the fall of godless totalitarian regimes." The proclamation recognizes the Pope's role in the fall of Communism in his native Poland which led to its subsequent collapse throughout Eastern Europe. Rep. Jim Leach, R-Iowa, sponsored the bill, saying the Pope "has sundered despotism and ennobled faith displaying courage and conviction." The sole dissenting vote was cast by Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, who has objected to other awards of the medal based on the $30,000 cost of the item. The most recipient of the Gold Medal was the late Cardinal John O'Connor earlier this year who died this month. Other recipients have included George Washington, Winston Churchill, Bob Hope, and Mother Teresa. The Senate Banking Committee will take up the measure on Wednesday. -24-May-2000 -- EWTN News Brief (CWNews.com)
Let's see... a Nation STARTED as a result of fleeing the grasp of hellish Catholicism is now embracing and honoring it? An in depth study of this "Nation" and it's prophetic nature is in order eh? Revelation 13:11, "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."
UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has been called upon to investigate claims of World War II era Genocide by the Vatican and Franciscans.
An open letter on behalf of Serb and Jewish survivors of wartime atrocities by the fanatical Catholic Croatians known as the “Ustasha” requests the UN Secretary General to investigate allegations of genocide committed by the Vatican and Franciscans. Specifically the victims claim: The Vatican and Franciscans knowingly helped Croatian and Nazi war criminals escape justice by organizing and funding the Nazi smuggling ratline based at San Girolamo and the Vatican whose many beneficiaries included Eichman, Barbie, Artukovich and Pavelic. Allegations of money laundering of the Croatian Nazi (Ustasha) Treasury consisting of loot stolen from concentration camp and other victims; and as to the Croatian Franciscan order, actual participation in genocide against Serbs, Jews, and Roma comprising the over 500,000 victims of the Croatian Nazis slaughtered in Croatia, Serbia, and Bosnia during Word War II.
Victims’ claims in the class action Alperin v. Vatican Bank include mass rape, beheadings, torture, mutilations, burnings, establishment of concentration and forced labor camps, destruction of Orthodox Churches and Jewish Synagogues, and looting of assets valued in the hundreds of millions by the Ustashe and Franciscans. Post war the Vatican provided sanctuary for the Ustashe killers until they could be whisked away to safety in South America via the Vatican ratline financed by Ustashe loot.

Christian priests get death threats
CLOSE ON the heels of the bomb blasts in the state, Christian priests in the north Karnataka
city of Hubli-Dharwad have received a shock in the form of a letter that threatens them with
death if they did not “stop conversions and accept Hinduism”. The letter that arrived by post to almost all the priests of the Protestant order in the twin cities is sourced as “Vishwa Hindu Parishad” but otherwise unsigned. Under the heading ‘Last Warning to Christian Missionaries’, the nine-paragraph letter has sent shock waves. Talking to The Hindustan Times over phone from neighbouring Belgaum, Bishop Bernad Moras said these letters were received by post on July 11th and 12th only by the priests in the twin cities. A complaint has been filed by the priests with the Hubli-Dharwad police. Bishop Moras said though it had been signed with the nomenclature “Vishwa Hindu Parishad”, the police would have to find out who exactly sent them. “Somebody else could be using the VHP name,” he said. “We do not know whether this is in any way related to the recent bomb blasts, but I feel that the state Corps of Detectives (COD) which is investigating the case should look into this also,” the Bishop said. The letter, highly incendiary, speaks disparagingly of the Christian community and demands that the priests should instead turn to “Sri Rama” and “Sri Krishna” and worship the cow if they wanted to live in India. Interestingly, the letter has been received only by Protestant priests and not even a single Roman Catholic priest has got them. Bishop Moras said there had been no previous threats of this nature except for the recent bomb blasts. The letter says that so far bomb blasts occurred only at churches. If “our” instructions are not followed it the blasts will occur in “your homes”, the letter warned. - Bangalore, July 14 (HT Correspondent)
A bit obvious you say? Is the Pope EXTORTING the Religious neighborhood? Let's look at the FACTS, one day we see the Pope HUGGING the Hindu leaders, he places their IDOL on his ROMAN CATHOLIC ALTAR then he receives a MARK upon his forehead from their nuns, and then the Hindus JOIN his ONE WORLD CHURCH on June 26, 2000, and now...those that step on the toes of the pals of the Pope get BOMB THREATS? DUH!
Double standard you say? Why is it the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH with their media frenzied spindoctors declaring that anyone preaching against Catholicism should be prosecuted as "Racists" and convicted of a "hate crime" as is reported in this my Newsletter, "Is Preaching the Gospel Now a Hate Crime?" Yet the Pope can speak out against anyone he pleases INCLUDING calling those that speak out against him HERETICS and all that occurs is the usual? N O T H I N G? It's simple, it is Satan's world people. He can do what he wants....for now.
Editor: Steve Van Nattan: Again, the only thing in this discussion I endorse is the exposure of the Roman Whore of today. To say that this is the same Whore as Revelation 17 is to miss the point entirely. The final Whore is ALL world religion united, which is happening as I write. In fact, I have information from inside the Vatican which indicates that the Vatican and the Roman Catholic power structure are crumbling. The Pope is totally helpless to get control over the more evil aspects of the Vatican, and the whole place is turning into an occult coven. Those inside the Vatican hope to destroy the Roman Catholic Church during the tenure of the next Pope. I believe this will cause the demise of the Roman hierarchy, and the hierarchy of the United World Religions system will prevail. They will then move to Babylon as their headquarters, and the prince who shall come will set up his headquarters in the temple mount in Jerusalem.
I do appreciate Nicholas' very useful discussion of the Roman Whore and this history of destruction of the Truth, and the assault on the Bride of Christ.
