What is Behind Rome's Virgin?
This next section is quite important but may be too offensive for the Catholics who could not receive the truth of the first section. I was raised in a Catholic home. I have experiential knowledge of Roman Catholic faith and practice. Most of my relatives are Catholics. I most certainly DO NOT hate Catholics, but I have a greater love for the TRUTH. Yeshua, Jesus, is the TRUTH personified! My love for the TRUTH, Yeshua, makes all other loves pale by comparison. Unfortunately, the truth is often offensive. I can see how the Roman Church even keeps its own priests and nuns deceived. In the last days of the strong delusion of the great tribulation we need to understand the prominent role to be played by Rome's Babylonian Mother Goddess. Let us first list the scriptures which refer to the Blessed Virgin and the Queen of Heaven so that we know the difference.
Isa 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Jer 7:18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.
Jer 44:17-19 But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil. 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. And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men?
Jer 44:22-23 So that the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which ye have committed; therefore is your land a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this day. Because ye have burned incense, and because ye have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil is happened unto you, as at this day.
Jer 44:25 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying; Ye and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and fulfilled with your hand, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her: ye will surely accomplish your vows, and surely perform your vows.
Here are the last words of the Blessed Virgin Mary recorded in the scriptures: John 2:4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. John 2:5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
It is good to obey Mary's last recorded words in scripture - "Whatsoever HE saith unto you, do it." Listen to Him. Mary does not tell us to listen to her or the pope in scripture. Mary would tell you that ALL goddesses are pagan. Mary would tell you the same thing as Paul the Apostle tells us in 1 Tim 2:5 - For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
The Roman Religion is more pagan than Christian. It is interesting to see what an ancient Roman high priest had to say - "It is expedient that the populations should be deceived in the matter of religion." Quintus Mucius Scaevola, Chief Priest of Rome, 2nd Century B.C.)
The Keys of This Blood by Malachi Martin, has caused quite a stir both within and without the Roman church. Martin describes the current geo-political struggle for ultimate world supremacy - pitting the West against the Vatican. Gorbechev is also thrown into the mix. Martin, a Vatican insider, tells us, that in the near future, Rome will emerge victorious - under very strange and amazing circumstances. Martin tells us that "The Woman Clothed with the Sun" would appear, and miraculously deliver all of mankind into the hands of John Paul II. Martin connects this anticipated Virgin-event to "a Son who will rule the Nations with a scepter of iron." Will this Son be Christ or Anti-Christ?
The continuing apparitions of the Virgin are difficult to explain. Outside of the light of the scriptures there can be no satisfactory and truthful explanation. The only people who are not troubled by these phenomena are those who practice the Roman devotions to Mary. Indeed these things should trouble anyone who looks to the seriousness of what this implies in light of the scriptures. 2 Th 2:11-12 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.
These apparitions are most foundational to Rome's plan to implement what Martin calls "the Grand Design", when Rome will again reign over the kings of the earth. So it is essential that the nature of these strange appearances is clear to those who regard the Word of God as the highest source of truth. Martin's book shows the real battle field is in the spiritual realm. The superpowers are on a collision course for the most destructive war of all time. Russia will soon destroy America. However, these superpowers cannot wage their war in the souls of men, where the Vatican is accustomed to operating.
We are witnessing the grand finale of all history unfolding before our eyes. Malachi Martin has provided some very useful facts and information. The key scriptures with a combination of history and some Roman Catholic doctrine readily will give us a vital understanding. The apparitions of the Virgin have a simple explanation. The true explanation is not a pretty picture.
"The Church of Vatican II sees in the Mother of God a model for itself." according to Pope John Paul II. For centuries, Rome's Virgin has been declaring her messages. In these last days, these have markedly increased. Since Fatima in 1917, over 300 appearances have been claimed. Her statues are crying tears of blood. And her popularity is at an all-time high. The hundreds of shrines of Mary have sprung up with the purpose of dispensing books, publishing newsletters, and manning hot lines to propagate faith in the apparitions, and adoration of the Virgin in general.
We know that Mary is the Virgin Mother of Yeshua, Jesus of Nazareth. However, who is now really being exalted as "the new Eve", the "well-beloved spouse of the Holy Spirit" and "the Ark of the New Covenant"? These new terms are some of Rome's latest buzzwords referring to the Virgin's "motherhood of the Church." The terms are based upon contortions of the scriptures. The Roman prominence of the Virgin has become so pronounced, that it goes way beyond both Christian faith and reason.
We should understand the significance of how Yeshua in all the scriptures refers to her, not as "Mother," but as "Woman." The reason for this apparent lower level of respect, was so that believers would understand that any goddess is pagan and not Christian. Christians should understand that Mary is not to be worshipped. Christians do not pray to anyone but the Father in the Name of Yeshua, Jesus. Prayers to Mary, and prayers to saints are not a Christian practice and violates the scriptures of both Old and New Testaments.
It is fine to ask other believers to join us in prayer or intercede with and for us. However, to pray for or to the dead, or bow down before statues, is worthless at best, and may be very harmful to your spiritual life. And to pray TO the dead, or anyone other than to God, is an expressly forbidden abomination to God. Even if the Roman church removes the 2nd commandment, and expands another to keep the number of commandments at 10. The 2nd commandment is still the 2nd commandment. God did not change it. "Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, ... Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me, And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments. Ex. 20 and Deu 5.
While pretending to have reduced the role of the Virgin, Vatican II revealed their underlying agenda when they described the Roman Virgin as "the Mother of God and of our Lord Jesus Christ" - declaring her not only the mother of Yeshua Messiah, Jesus Christ, but the Mother of the Father as well!
This is clearly a strong delusion which is unfolding. Like all previous pagan Virgin-Mother Goddesses from Babylon and ancient Rome, the Vatican virgin is subject to no male God. Rather than a chosen vessel, Rome's virgin has become the Source of God and even more important than God. This is blatant Babylonian Mother Goddess Idolatry. Catholics should not only wonder why prayers are made to anyone other than God, but why the vast majority of Catholic prayers are to Mary?????
Rome, while worshipping and enthroning Lucifer in the Vatican, has recently removed almost all effective means from the Catholic exorcists. Rome is heralding the moment when, under the protective shield of a Church restored in its splendor, nations will also shine in the golden light of the Reign of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Unlike biblical Christianity, Roman Catholic doctrine has never taught that Yeshua Messiah, Jesus Christ, will return to reign upon the earth for 1,000 years, before the final judgment as described in Chapter 20 of Revelation. This scriptural belief was declared an anathema, or heresy which is declared only in cases of "a grave crime" according to the Catholic Home Encyclopedia.
Roman Catholics instead anticipate a reign of the Virgin. This idea has been actively perpetuated by groups such as the Blue Army (linked to the World Apostolate of Fatima) whose prayer of consecration to the Virgin proclaims, "I consecrate to you my self, my country, and all my fellow men. Reign over our hearts, dearest Mother...".
Those who participate in consecration to the Virgin call the revival of Vatican rule the "Age of Mary...an age in which men will lose themselves in Mary, will become living copies of Mary..." Consecration of the world to her "Immaculate Heart" (requested by the Virgin apparitions) has been repeated by the pontiff and his bishops three times since the apparition of Fatima in 1917, including the most recent consecration in 1984. The same words are on Pope John Paul II's lips at every opportunity.
John Paul II would recommend that consecration to the Virgin entails "slavery" to her. The body and all its parts are dedicated to the Virgin. The soul, intellect, and free will, belong to the Virgin. All of one's worldly possessions become hers to use as she sees fit. In a word - "Co-redemptrix" or co-redeemer. The Consecration to the Virgin is more complete and more strongly promoted than to the Lord, Yeshua. The consecration is a total departure from anything identifiably Christian by the Church. Yet the Roman church claims to be the only authority on the subject.
Martin gives a detailed account of the direction the Roman church is heading. He also explains the political payoff of such consecrations in his Keys book. Martin plainly tells us that the consecrations to Mary is how the Roman church has taken over Poland. He tells us it is a good thing and would be a good thing for all the world to become such a Roman Catholic theocracy. This is the main theme of his Keys book, which itself, is dedicated to The Immaculate Heart. Martin says, "democratic principles cannot take precedence over divine revelation". This "divine revelation" refers to a private vision of the Virgin which was experienced by John Paul II.
The end of the road for these consecrations is the end of the road for religious freedom, freedom of nations, or individual freedom. Such is the religious side of the New World Order and its "democratic principles." The connection between the Antichrist New World Order, a papacy restored to its former power, and the all-consuming consecrations to the Virgin, should be raising warning flags for everyone on this planet.
Rome has always believed itself the divinely appointed ruler of the world, even before Christ. The Roman poet Virgil, in his Aeneid, says, "But yours, my Roman, is the gift of government, That is your bent - to impose upon the nations the code of peace; to be clement to the conquered, But to utterly crush the intransigent."
Rome has climbed on the ecumenical bandwagon. The Vatican made their ecumenical moves in the spirit of "renewal" and "reconciliation." These words have a different meaning to Rome than they have to the rest of the world outside her control. Renewal is the renewal of the Roman Empire, and reconciliation refers to the revival of the Caesar's interpretation Romania, "the understanding of all foreign gods as their own".
The Caesars were the first ecumenicists. The Roman Empire more or less embraced all religions as a political move to shore up the unity of the empire, and to prevent the necessity of long and costly foreign wars. At the same time, emperor-worship was exported to ensure loyalty to Rome.
This is exactly what today's Roman ecumenicism is. The pontiff is to be exalted beyond measure, and the Vatican will welcome every belief, except Jews and biblical Christianity, no matter how far out. We may be sure, regardless of Rome's rhetoric, she will be vehemently anti-Semitic. Rome's violent history of anti-Semitism will never change; but, only become more violent when Rome gets more control and opportunity. Only Christians and Jews holding to the standard of their respective Scriptures are unwelcome in Rome's new world order. Like Yeshua said, "the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service." Rome's virgin will have a leading role in this.
Prominence of the Virgin is growing fast throughout the ecumenical movement. The Roman Virgin barrier between Catholics and Protestants is gone. Now it has become a rallying point within the charismatic movement. The faith of the martyrs of the reformation has little bearing on today's compromised Christian leaders. Rather than warning their flocks most encourage this with their "doctrine divides and love unites." If it is really love, it must be firmly founded on the TRUTH. The truth is often offensive but if it is not founded on truth it is not really love, it is compromise. Compromise is rampant and very deadly today. Yeshua has not called us to be NICE. Adam was being NICE, when he followed Eve after the NICE fruit, at the suggestion of the NICE serpent.
The Scriptures stand strong against those who "run greedily after the error of Balaam." Balaam was a prophet for profit, who was willing to sell out. Rome's success depends on such leaders, whose sole interest lies in carving out a piece of the forthcoming pie for themselves. They're on the bandwagon already.
New Age belief in the Goddess, the exaltation of Mary in the Muslim Koran, and raging, radical feminism all fit nicely into the Vatican's vision of "the people of God". Every pagan belief system has a Goddess that Rome can take in to suit her "Grand Design". The apparition messages from the Virgin are always ecumenical. The apparitions always have an emphasis on obedience to the Pope and Rome's teaching authority.
Can you see how broad the scope of Rome's theater of operations is in this delusion? Rome lures the multitudes of every faith and every country into her corner using the ecumenical movement. When the momentum of this movement is combined with her own outposts found in every small town in the world, with the volunteer armies of professional and lay religious devotees, one begins to see how big this is. The Pope has his armies, all receiving marching orders from the Vatican high priest. Once Rome has attained her goal, the outcome for those who prefer freedom is very predictable. Can we forget the Inquisition which continued for hundreds of years? We should remember that Roman Catholicism's shining hour was The Dark Ages for everyone else.
The Goddess is a reality. The real question is...Is she what they claim? Is she the benevolent, loving, character that Rome portrays? History says quite the opposite. Rome's history contains the cruelest of inquisition tortures and vilest hatred of mankind that goes along with Goddess - worship. This is not Christianity. Even a quick look at the ancient pagan religions will find that Rome is continuing identical practices found from earliest Babylon. It was first in Babylon that men and kings came under the bondage of their religious leaders. In early Babylon the priests used magic and religious hocus-pocus to keep their control over the people.
Apparitions of the gods and goddesses resulting from powerful sorcery are all through ancient pagan religion. The weeping statues of the Virgin are not by any means new or unique. Such may be found all through ancient pagan literature. Alexander Hislop, says in his book, The Two Babylons, "Has the image of the Virgin been seen to shed tears? Many a tear was shed by the Pagan images. To these tender-hearted idols Lucan alludes...'Tears shed by gods, our country's patrons, And sweat from Lares told the city's woes." Hislop's classic book has some other pointed quotes, "...in the fumes of incense which [the Theurgist Maximus] burned before the statue of [the Goddess] Hecate, the image was seen to laugh so naturally as to fill the spectators with terror." The statue of Isis was able to shake the serpent upon her head and nod in approval.
Why is the Virgin-Mother Goddesses of the Babylonian Mysteries of old invoked by the very same names that Rome's Virgin is today? The answer is simple. The Vatican has already got on the books the great international crime of "Biblicism." Rome has virtually claimed equality to Yeshua Messiah with the Virgin's dogmas of Immaculate Conception, sinless life, and her bodily resurrection into heaven. At least to this date and time, the Virgin has not made any appearances in the flesh and visible to all, as Christ did in the gospel accounts. Without physical appearances where she can be both seen and touched by those other than the seers, no true claim can be made for her "bodily Assumption into heaven". The "Assumption" is the foundation for the claims made in the apparitions.
There is no reason to try to disprove the apparitions and weeping statues. We do not need to look for hidden physical devices. We should understand that the magic is real. They are what the bible calls sorcery. According to the ancient pagan literature, sorcery reeks of death in the form of human sacrifice. Roman Catholicism also has a strange emphasis upon death. This emphasis is peculiar to Rome among all others calling themselves Christian. The Roman Catholic emphasis on death is seen everywhere. You will find it in the relics within Rome's altars, in the embalmed "saints" on display, in the image of the endlessly dying Christ hanging in churches and dangling at the end of rosaries, in their prayers for the dead and in their doctrine of purgatory, in their shrines set within cemeteries. Here is a Church that can hardly claim to be serving the Living God.
Such is the Nicolaitan spirit of control, which Yeshua says twice in Revelation that He HATES. This Nicolaitan spirit of control will be the main job of the false prophet. He will work with and set up the antichrist prince for Lucifer's new world order.
"Even him whose coming is after the working of Satan, with all power, and signs, and lying wonders..." (2 Thessalonians 2:9)
A mark in the hand and in the forehead has only one parallel in the Scriptures, and that is the mark required by the Antichrist, and given at the at the instruction of a lifelike, speaking image which must be worshipped under the penalty of death. To received this mark is the sin of blaspheming the Holy Spirit which is the only sin which God will not forgive. This sin of receiving the mark of the beast in the hand or forehead will bring God's penalty of eternity in the lake of fire.
With Serbia so prominently in the news we should remember another "bloody purification" took place in Yugoslavia about fifty years ago, when a million Serbs, Jews, and Gypsies were purged to create a pure Catholic state. "The Secret History of the Jesuits" by Edmond Paris has some MOST INTERESTING, quotes in that book which date back to 1913. Remember all of these quotes are from 1913 with just a couple of inserts in (parentheses):
Quotes from 1913 start of WW I --- The same script for WWIII (Remember the pope's 1/26/99 visit to Clinton)
But for the time being the Orthodox Church stayed firmly implanted in the Balkins, especially in Serbia.
To Rome, the growing power of Serbia marked her out as the enemy to overthrow.
Among the subjects discussed first of all with the cardinal secretary of State last week, the question of Serbia came up as anticipated. First of all the cardinal expressed his joy at our opportune attitude.
During the audience I had that day with His Holiness, the Holy-Father who started the conversation by mentioning our energetic steps taken in Belgrade.
Regarding the murders, The Serbian government had nothing to do with this crime..., but it was the perfect excuse for the emperor (Clinton) to start hostilities.
The advice of the pope and his minister was the one which could best influence him (Clinton).
This advice was of course given to the emperor (Clinton), and of the kind which could be expected from this pope.
Today, the Virgin still appears in Serbia regularly, for many years since the last world war. The reported prophecies by Rome's Virgin in Serbia, years ago, said W.W. III would break out this way. The Luciferians manufactured those reports so that people would later recall them and say that this W.W. III was God's will. The truth is, it is an Antichrist New World Order script that has been well orchestrated behind the scenes. The Luciferian plans must perfectly fulfill what God has declared in the scriptures. The 3rd Secret of Fatima is that Satan has entered the Catholic Church, bringing with him agents to occupy the highest positions. Scriptures, history, and ancient pagan literature cannot be reconciled with the claims of Roman Catholicism. Perhaps the virgin apparitions are more dangerous than an infallible pope. Most recognize the pope as the false prophet of Lucifer and the Antichrist in the last days. Few understand what is behind the apparitions of Rome's virgin.
Come out of her My people! Saith the Lord in Rev 18:4
