Exciting Times!

It’s March 6th, 2019 and some surreal things have been happening in America and around the world. 

Democrats managed to take the House majority last November, though Republicans held onto the Senate by a slim margin. That margin becomes even slimmer when you factor in all the RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) who have been voting to defeat many bills that should have swung the other way. Perhaps the most critical example: Full-term birth abortion! 

Today it is looking like the vote on President Trump’s emergency declaration to build a wall that will secure our southern border with Mexico may swing left, leaving our POTUS no option other than to override the Senate. I’m not sure how all that works, but today there are witnesses testifying before the Justice Committee (now chaired by Sen. Lindsey Graham) concerning the STATE OF EMERGENCY that exists — danger for Border Patrol agents, massive amounts of drugs flowing in, human trafficking, child sex abuse, etc.

We are anxiously awaiting the declassification of documents that will reveal TRUTH about the corrupt politicians running America’s government. President Trump has said that he’s waiting for just the right time to order the documents made public. THAT will be a thing of beauty!

In my personal sphere, the Lord surprised me last night when I discovered that General Michael Flynn — a central figure in the Russia probe, which has now been discredited — chose to follow me on Twitter! That has given me a much needed boost of energy and determination to return to posting on my blog, and making use of Facebook and Twitter as means of P.R. and publicity. 

Lots of excitement at our house while Selah works with her robotics team at her high school (Papa Chuck has been asked to help!), and Jessa is preparing for her role as Scar in the upcoming musical theater production of Lion King Jr. at her school. Selah is 16 and is currently a Junior. Jessa us 13 and is in the middle school program on Flex-track at Vista Classical Academy.

A great erse for prayer request and meditation is Psalm 51:10:
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.” 

 

“Exhausted in the Vatican” (2012)

In light of yet another news story that has come to my attention, “The Final Battles of Pope Benedict XVI”, I want to share some of the fascinating information from the book, Petrus Romanus, The Final Pope Is Here” by Thomas Horn and Cris Putnam (2012, Defender Publishing).
I rarely read books, but on occasion one comes my way that I sense I MUST READ, and Petrus Romanus is one of those. Back in 1995 when I was led by the Spirit to begin this journey of connecting Bible prophecy to end times events, I was browsing in a bookstore with absolutely no intention of buying into anything concerning end times. I was experiencing the debilitating symptoms of fibromyalgia syndrome and was as yet undiagnosed. It was only because my son had given me a gift certificate for Christmas that I had dragged myself out of bed and made the trip to buy something — I truly was feeling no motivation to shop. I had made the rounds through the small Christian store without finding anything that I wanted (VERY much unlike me), and I was just about ready to head home empty handed when my eyes literally were drawn to a shelf of books about “last days” prophecy. And as I stepped closer, two books caught my attention, one by Hal Lindsey and the other by Dave Hunt, titled A Woman Rides the Beast.
I bring this up because Dave Hunt’s book is about unmistakeable prophecy parallels between the Roman Catholic Church and visions given to the prophet John in the Revelation of Jesus Christ. I was fascinated by all that for many years, then I set it aside because nothing seemed to be coming of it, and I definitely didn’t want to share what I was reading and possibly offend any of my friends who are sincerely following Jesus within Catholicism!
But now comes this new book, just recently off the press, that once again brings up parallels between the Vatican (“the city on seven hills”; Rev. 17:9), the papacy, Catholic doctrine, and something new: a centuries old prophecy, called “St. Malachy’s Prophecy of the Popes”, which appears to very clearly predict that the current Pope Benedict XVI will be followed by “Peter the Roman”, the last pope (according to the prophecy) to reign before “the final Conclave” convenes to elect the next pope — perhaps in 2012. I encourage you to buy the two books if you are interested in the full commentaries. I will only be listing certain facts that I feel are pertinent to all of my readers.
I will be posting small bites of verifiable truth, because I know this is going to be hard for many people to “swallow.” And because this will be very time consuming if I do it appropriately, rather than in a rush. For now, here is the text of the news article I mentioned earlier, for your consideration:

Exhausted in the Vatican The Final Battles of Pope Benedict XVI

By Fiona Ehlers, Alexander Smoltczyk and Peter Wensierski

Finally, there is clarity. The Holy See has cleared things up and made the document accessible to all: a handout on checking whether apparitions of the Virgin Mary are authentic.

Everything will be much easier from now on. The Roman Catholic Church has taken a step forward. This “breaking news” from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) reveals the kinds of issues the Vatican is concerned with — and the kind of world in which some there live. It’s a world in which the official Church investigation of Virgin Mary sightings is carefully regulated while cardinals in the Roman Curia, the Vatican’s administrative and judicial apparatus, wield power with absolutely no checks and the pope’s private correspondence turns up in the desk drawers of a butler.

It’s a completely different apparition of the Virgin Mary that has pulled the Vatican and the Catholic Church into a new crisis, whose end and impact can only be surmised: the appearance of a source in the heart of the Church, a conspiracy against the pope and a leak code-named “Maria.”

Since the end of May, the pope’s former butler, Paolo Gabriele, has been detained in a 35-square-meter (377-square-foot) cell at the Vatican, with a window but no TV. Using the code name “Maria,” he allegedly smuggled faxes and letters out of the pope’s private quarters. But it remains unclear who was directing him to do so.

Even with Gabriele’s arrest, the leak still hasn’t been plugged. More documents were released to the public last week, documents intended primarily to damage two close associates of Pope Benedict XVI: his private secretary, Georg Gänswein, and Cardinal Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican’s top administrator. According to one document, “hundreds” of other secret documents would be published if Gänswein and Bertone weren’t “kicked out of the Vatican.” “This is blackmail,” says Vatican expert Marco Politi. “It’s like threatening total war.”

A House in Disarray

Fear is running rampant in the Curia, where the mood has rarely been this miserable. It’s as if someone had poked a stick into a beehive. Men wearing purple robes are rushing around, hectically monitoring correspondence. No one trusts anyone anymore, and some even hesitate to communicate by phone.

It all began in the accursed seventh year of the papacy of Benedict XVI, with striking parallels to the latter part of Pope John Paul II’s papacy. The same complaints about poor leadership and internal divisions are being aired outside the Vatican’s walls, while the pope himself seems exhausted and no longer able to exert his power.

Joseph Ratzinger turned 85 in April. This makes him the oldest pope in 109 years, and one of the few popes who have exercised what Benedict has called this “enormous” office at such an advanced age.

Of course, he is still enviably fit, both mentally and physically, especially compared to his predecessor in his later years. But speaking has become unmistakably more difficult for Benedict than at the beginning of his papacy, and it’s hard to miss that his movements have become stiff and cautious.

He recently told a visitor that his old piano hardly gets any use anymore. Playing it requires practice, he added, but he doesn’t have any time for that. He prefers to continue working on the last part of his series on Jesus, which he wants to finish before dying.

A Ship with No Captain

These days, it isn’t difficult to find clerics at the Vatican who are willing to talk, provided their identities remain anonymous.

The monsignor who finds his way to a restaurant near Piazza Santa Maria in Rome’s Trastevere neighborhood one evening worked closely with Ratzinger in the CDF for years. But even before the waiter arrives with water and wine, the monsignor delivers his verdict on Ratzinger’s papacy: “The pope doesn’t fully exercise his office!” In his view, instead of having things under control, they control him.

The pope isn’t interested in daily affairs at the Vatican, says the anonymous monsignor. Still, this is not exactly unprecedented, as his predecessor also neglected the Curia. While the Polish pope spent a lot of time traveling, his German successor is apparently happiest while poring over books and writing speeches. “He simply isn’t taking matters into his own hands,” the monsignor says. In essence, he adds, the pope faces a different power in Rome — and one he hasn’t take command of.

Although the Vatican is Catholic, it’s also two-thirds Italian. In the end, says the monsignor, the Vatican’s employees and administration don’t care who among their ranks leads the Church. Even for someone who has been living there for decades, the monsignor says, “the Vatican is a ball of wool that’s almost impossible to untangle — not even by a pope.”

When John Paul II died in April 2005, the Curia was in terrible shape. Events and personnel decisions had been postponed during his last few years, in which he was often ill. The new pope was expected to finally clear off the desks and give the Curia a fresh start.

But, for the most part, such reforms haven’t materialized. Priests still hold all key positions, including those on the Council for the Laity and the Council for the Family. The only woman in a senior position, Briton Lesley-Anne Knight, was driven out of office as secretary-general of the Catholic development agency Caritas Internationalis in 2011 for having openly opposed the Church’s male-dominated hierarchy.

Fractured and Ferocious

A “reform of the Curia” is probably a contradiction in terms. Its hierarchical, essentially medieval organizational model is incompatible with modern management. The Vatican is an anachronistic, albeit surprisingly tenacious system, in which pecking orders and an absurd penchant for secrecy and intrigue prevail. “The only important thing is proximity to the monarch,” says a member of a cardinal’s staff. Rome works like an absolutist court, one in which decisions are made by people whispering things into the others’ ears rather than by committees. “There are many vain people here, people in sharp competition with one another,” the staff member adds.

Who spoke with whom, and for how long? What did they talk about? Who attends early Mass with whom, and who invites whom to dinner? Who’s in and who’s out? Who belongs and who doesn’t, and who’s coming into favor and who’s falling out of it? “This mood fosters feelings of exclusion, discrimination, envy, revenge and resentment,” the monsignor says. And all things have now appeared in the so-called Vatileaks documents.

Papal secretary Gänswein, in particular, has made many enemies. As the pope’s gatekeeper, he has influence over who is granted or denied the pontiff’s favor as well as over which events and issues might command his attention. This power can trigger fear, jealousy and derision in the corridors of the Apostolic Palace, the pope’s official residence. For Gänswein, it seemed almost miraculous that he was able to spend an entire evening relaxing and conversing with German clerics at the Vatican’s embassy in Berlin last September. It was an experience he couldn’t have had in Rome.

The Vatican is disintegrating into dozens of competing interest groups. In the past, it was the Jesuits, the Benedictines, the Franciscans and other orders that competed for respect and sway within the Vatican court. But their influence has waned, and they have now been replaced primarily by the so-called “new clerical communities” that bring the large, cheering crowds to Masses celebrated by the pope: the Neocatechumenate, the Legionaries of Christ and the traditionalists of the Society of St. Pius X(SSPX) and the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter — not to mention the worldwide “santa mafia” of Opus Dei.They all have their open and clandestine agents in and around the Vatican, and they all own real estate and run universities, institutes and other educational facilities in Rome. Various cardinals and bishops champion their interests at the Vatican, often without an official or recognizable mandate. At the Vatican, everyone is against everyone, and everyone feels they have God on their side.

Perhaps Benedict XVI simply knows the Vatican too well to seriously attempt to reform it. “As pope, this veteran curial insider has turned out to have virtually zero interest in actually running the Roman Curia,” writes John L. Allen, a biographer of the pope.

“A Tale of Two Popes” (2014)

A tale of two Popes

Author: Adrian Salbuchi is a political analyst, author, speaker and radio/TV commentator in Argentina.  (Emphasis added)
Published time: December 23, 2014 16:47 

The Roman Catholic Church celebrates its second Two-Pope Christmas this week. Is there greater significance behind this than meets the eye?

Is the Vatican actually giving us a sign “in plain sight,” to be understood by “those who have eyes to see and ears to hear”?

The Catholic Church – the main worldly Christian Institution – has undergone deep change, in line with the signs of the times. The key to understanding the Church’s 2,000-year success story lies in three factors embedded in its name: it is “Apostolic,” (in that its foundations lie in the works and lives of Jesus Christ’s key disciples); it is “Catholic” (in Greek – καθολικός – which means universal, or “global” by today’s standards); and last but not least, it is “Roman” (geographically, culturally and geopolitically).

In spite of the hundreds of thousands of early Christians martyred by the Roman Emperors, the Church owes much to Rome. Not only did it fix its HQ smack in the middle of the Eternal City, it also adopted Rome’s secular language, Latin, turning it into its own Sacred tongue; blended much of Rome’s legal and administrative structure, and adopted many of its symbols, concepts and style.

Thus, the “Pontiff” (bridge) – holds the key to Eternal Salvation and even Jesus’s birthday is celebrated December 25th, the same as Mithras’s: an Iranian god Roman legionnaires brought back with them from the Eastern confines of the Empire. Not to mention that the Cross – the supreme symbol of Martyrdom – was a Roman contraption.

Whatever your opinion, whichever your Faith, the truth is that the Church has weathered time well. Sure today it looks rather weary, tired and gray, but it is nevertheless the West’s oldest institution with 2,000 years of uninterrupted continuity, most of it spent in Rome and that’s an awfully long time.

Is there a subtle collective “time-bar” for institutions, measured in such long periods that we do not see it, mainly because our own short lives drive us to think short-term?

Time, time and time

The rules governing Millennia are probably different from our modern, materialistic, short-term concept of time. In fact, the Ancients used three different words when coping with time: “Chronos” described “physical” lineal time“Kairos” referred to significant points in time when the will of God or the gods was manifested: cosmic destiny milestones, so to speak; and “Aion”: Rome’s god of very long periods of cyclical time, from which we derive the modern word “eon.”

For the Church, Chronos seems to be embedded into Kairos which are its significant milestones, which in turn help to “explain” prophecy (“My time is not yet come”); all in turn rolled up into Aion, the cyclical “times of the ages” during which subtle, slow, long-term changes surge and wane in the collective psyche.

In today’s dark crises, have illuminated elements inside the Church understood these mechanisms and are playing them out in the world? Last year, the papacy underwent an almost unprecedented “Kairos”milestone when Pope Benedict XVI (aka Joseph Ratzinger) abdicated to be replaced one moon later by Pope Francis (aka Jorge Mario Bergoglio).

Was this incredible overturning of centuries of orderly papal continuity where new popes were enthroned only after the old pope died, done merely because Benedict felt too old, too tired and too weak to perform his collective worldly and spiritual duties?

Peter and Paul, Church founders

St Peter (Simon Peter, in Latin, Petrus the Rock) died around 64 AD, crucified under Emperor Nero Augustus Caesar. He was one of the original 12 Apostles whom the Church considers as its very first pope, directly ordained by Jesus himself as the “Rock of My Church” (Matthew 16:18). Tradition holds Peter was crucified at the site of the Clementine Chapel and that his bones lie under St Peter’s Basilica.

St Paul was a different story. His original Jewish name was Saul; he was younger than Peter and not one of the original 12 followers of Jesus. As a matter of fact, he began by persecuting Jesus’ disciples in Jerusalem. Then, as he was on the road to Damascus, the resurrected Jesus appeared to him in a great light striking him blind. But his sight returned three days later and, having “seen the light,” Saul changed his name to Paul and began preaching that Jesus of Nazareth was the Messiah and the Son of God.

Paul was a brilliant, prolific intellectual: 14 of the 27 books in the New Testament are traditionally attributed to him. His epistles form the roots of Christian theology, worship and ritual, not just Roman Catholic but Orthodox and Protestant as well.

Paul preached mainly to the heathen and is often referred to as “The Apostle of the Gentiles,” whilst Peter kept the flock of converted Jews aligned to the new Creed.

Thus, loyal Peter was the “heart” of the Church, the very rock on which it was built and still stands in Rome; whilst brilliant Paul was the “brains” of the Church, the dogma which still holds to this day (in spite of the Second Vatican Council!).

In very general terms, one could say that Peter and Paul single-handedly founded the worldly and temporal structure of Roman Catholicism, out of which centuries later Protestantism would also spring. It’s no wonder that the Church honors their joint solemnities on the same day: June 29 – The Feast of Saints Peter and Paul.

Let’s fast forward to the present-day Church. As in a mirror, are we seeing a modern reflection of those two Roman Church Founders who worked together, lived together and almost died together, in the two Pontiffs who today also live and work together and who will in all likelihood also die together in Rome: Pope Francis (the “true” pope) and the retired pope “emeritus” Benedict XVI?

Saint Malachi’s List

Malachi was an 11th Century Irish saint, the Archbishop of Armagh, and the first native-born Irishman to be canonized. Today, he’s best known for an apocalyptic vision he had when journeying to Rome which he hurriedly wrote down, in which he “saw” the 112 popes that would reign after his time until the Last Judgment and Second Coming of Christ.

Malachi’s List was forgotten for 400 years until it was discovered by Benedictine monk Arnold de Wyon. He published it in 1590 as the “Doomsday Prophecy.” Many scholars believe this to be an elaborate 16th-century hoax.

Maybe… And yet there is something uncanny about the way the 112 short, cryptic Latin phrases Malachi gave to each of the coming 112 Roman Catholic popes beginning with Pope Celestine II, seem to tally with some aspect – great or small – of the actual bishops who would ascend to the throne of St. Peter in centuries to come.

If it was a hoax, it was definitely a most inspired one.

Add to this another key factor: Timing. Since Malachi drafted his visionary List, we’ve seen some popes reigning for many long years like Pius IX and John Paul II (31 and 26 years, respectively) and others having sadly short reigns like John Paul I’s brief, 33-day tenure.

With such wild variations in the length of popes’ reigns, Malachi’s List could have very well swerved off by literally entire centuries, either ending too soon (centuries ago) or too late (still having centuries to go), and yet…

Here we are in 2014 with the very last pope on Malachi’s List sitting in Rome: a man who just turned 78 and who we should not expect will live many decades more.

So, maybe we shouldn’t shrug off old St Malachi too lightly, even if his mysterious list has been abused by New Agers and Zeitgeisters. After all, Malachi was the Archbishop of Armagh, which rings of Armageddon.

Where do we go from here?

Are there deeper collective psychological factors at work even now? Apocalyptic End-Times may very well reflect the awakening of dormant collective Archetypes: the ones Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung so aptly studied and spoke about in the last century. But there may also be some self-fulfilling prophecy factors in play.

In 1935, English poet T. S. Eliot wrote a drama called “Murder in the Cathedral,” a story about the assassination in his own Canterbury Cathedral of Archbishop Thomas Becket by two knights loyal to English King Henry II Plantagenet, over a political struggle as to who should have the final word on worldly matters: the King sitting in London, or the Pope sitting in Rome.

In one magnificent scene, Becket’s loyal monks seek to protect their archbishop by blocking the Cathedral doors as Henry’s armed knights draw nigh. Becket, however, orders they remain open, thus seeking – even willing – his own Martyrdom: a veritable “imitation of Christ” in the sense that Prophecy must “be accomplished.”

When prophesies hoary with age become embedded into the collective psyche, there may very well be a strong unconscious compulsion to live them out, so to speak, just like in a play or opera. The fascination is in no way diminished by the fact that we know exactly how the play will end, whether it is Murder in the Cathedral, Hamlet, Macbeth, Faust, Wagner’s Ring Cycle… or Malachi’s Doomsday List.

Secret of Secrets

Are the deepest recesses of the Vatican, which hide so many secrets, mysteries and intricacies, unwittingly (or not) playing out a Game of Prophecy?

Look at the last four entries of Malachi’s List:

– John Paul I (109 on the List) Malachi called “Of the half moon.” Poor Albino Luciani was enthroned during a half moon in 1978, and found dead in the next half moon, 33 days later.

– John Paul II (110th) he described as “the labours of the sun” (which some construed as the eclipse of the sun): When Karol Wojtyła was born there was a solar eclipse, which happened again during his funeral.

– Joseph Ratzinger (111th) is described as “Glory of the olive”: Ratzinger’s papal name honors St Benedict of Nursia, founder of the Benedictine Order, of which the Olivetans are one branch.

But suddenly last year Benedict abdicated, generating expectations as to who would be the next and apparently last pope. For No. 112 carries no short and enigmatic description. Rather, Malachi wrote the following ominous words, “Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations, and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills [Rome? Jerusalem?] will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The End.”

Pope 112 is Francis, the Argentinean Jorge Bergoglio who thankfully did not choose Peter as his papal name. No pope after the original Peter ever has, a taboo not applied to Paul (six popes carried that name).

If St Paul was the “brains” of the Church, can we see in Benedict XVI his modern counterpart? A brilliant, cold, intellectual, Church doctor, for decades the Prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of Faith, aloof from worldly matters?

If St Peter was the simpler, more emotional sturdy “rock” on which Jesus built his Church, is Francis – so beloved by Catholics for his warmth, simplicity, directness and unsophistication, his modern counterpart?

The Church has not had two living popes in Rome for six centuries and although St Paul was never himself pope, gathering “Peter & Paul” together again to join forces in the face of today’s so very challenging times for the Church, its Flock and all toiling folk roaming our bleak planet, might not be a bad idea, albeit filled with dark foreboding.

For these are times of growing “wars and rumors of wars”: Ukraine, Syria, Korea, Africa, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Mali, Somalia, India, Pakistan, Libya, Hong Kong, Sudan, Iran

Is the Church taking St Malachi more seriously than they care to admit? Has it considered it prudent to “prepare for the worst and hope for the best”?

If based on all the wisdom, information, prophecy, secret truths, damning evidence, and unspeakable proofs hidden away in the deepest recesses and vaults of the Vatican, the Church is preparing for the worst, then maybe we would do well to follow its example.

Political tragedy often arises because vital stories go untold; key information is kept locked away, and the obvious goes unnoticed.

Billions of people would no doubt undergo a collective change of heart if such vital Truths were revealed, if the real culprits were unmasked, if warmongers were righteously punished, and loyal truth seekers were rewarded.

The world needs such a Vital Message.

Maybe it’s time for Rome to come out and really tell it like it is. For if not from Rome, inspired by the spirit of Peter and Paul and the legions of Angels, then from where can we expect even a morsel of Truth to flourish? The world listens with baited breath….

—————————————————————

The Revelation from Jesus Christ (the final book of the Bible) is filled with apocalyptic symbolism that has been speculated about since it was written down by the apostle John, while he lived in exile on the island of Patmos during the reign of Roman emperor Domitian.

Specific prophecies referred to in this article can be found in Revelation 13 (the revealing of “beast #1” — a.k.a. THE end times Antichrist or global ruler — and of “beast #2” — a.k.a. “the false prophet”) and in Revelation 17:9, which mentions “seven hills.” Rome has been traditionally called “the city on seven hills.” Many end times students of prophecy believe that a Roman Catholic “Pope” will step into the role of the false prophet. Apparently Archbishop Malachi believed this to be true.

“The devil is real.” — Pope Francis

Pope Francis Warns Young Children: ‘The Devil is Real’  Catholic leader tells children that Satan is their ‘biggest enemy, and not a fairytale’

March 4, 2019

Pope Francis reportedly told a group of children on Sunday that the Devil exists and is their “biggest enemy, and is not a ‘fairytale’.”The Pontiff met with children from Saint Crispin’s parish in Viterbo as he insisted that the devil is “the ruler of the pagan spirit” and “the lord of evil.”The Catholic leader urged the children to resist his wiles through prayer and recourse to Jesus.  In a somewhat lively dialogue with the group of children, Francis asked them how the Devil attempts to separate us from God….

Pope John Paul II with side view of the Bent Cross.


The Catholic religion often calls herself the “Mother Church.” She’s NOT the mother of Christ’s church! By calling herself “mother” she is telling on herself. Is this the abomination spoken of in the Scriptures? . . .

THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH

(Revelation 17:5)! 

Notice the Catholic religion calls herself a woman. The Bible calls Catholicism a whore, and what a GREAT WHORE she is—committing spiritual fornication with the kings and rulers of the earth (nearly every king throughout history has had some type of political, economic or religious ties with the Vatican). Read about how Nazi Germany and the Vatican worked together to murder millions of innocent Jews in the holocaust!  Read The Vatican’s Holocaust. She’s DRUNKEN with the blood of the saints. Study the Inquisitions—the torture and killing of tens-of-millions of people.Oh, even the antichrist is naked in light of God’s word.

Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists (Popes and priests); whereby we know that it is the last time” —1st John 2:18

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color (official Vatican colors), and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls (the Vatican is filthy rich), having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations (the Holocaust, inquisitions, etc.) and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY (very few people realize where the Catholic religion started), BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS (who seduce people into their damnable religion) AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” —Revelation 17:4,5

Catholicism’s ill-gotten children profess to know Christ but do service to Satan by disregarding the commandments of God in order to keep the traditions of men which papists even themselves call “TRADITION.”

Excerpt from https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/vatican/esp_vatican44.htm

Massimo Introvigne of Italy, a known Vatican agent and satanist said in an interview with Maria Grazia of Epoca Magazine that he attended a Black Mass in a Church of Satan in Turin.

Here is a portion of the interview:

EPOCA: Mr. Introvigne, how did you succeed in overcoming the mistrust of the people from Turin?
INTROVIGNE: I’ve frequented cult circles for years. I found my Satanist contacts among people practicing sex magic. Although I’m a Catholic, I enjoy a good reputation. It was they who sought me out. At times, we met in neutral territories; then they allowed me to attend their rites.

EPOCA: Where did the rite take place?
INTROVIGNE: In a private apartment of the old part of town, probably used as a storehouse, with a room nearly ten meters long.

EPOCA: How was the furniture?
INTROVIGNE: Essential. With no black painted walls, like you can see in the US or in other deserted Satanic chapels discovered also in Turin. Just an altar, at the center, with a dark pall, similar to those used for funerals. There was a statuette showing the devil with a erect fallus, at least 30 centimeter long… A lot of devil shaped red candles, a “hand of glory” and a presumably human skull.

EPOCA: Who attended the mass?
INTROVIGNE: There were about twenty people, all standing. On average, they were quite young, 30 years or more, I guess. There were a few women: not more than seven or eight. They all wore normal clothes, except the celebrant who was black dressed, with a mantle reaching his feet and a hood on his shoulders.

EPOCA: How was the rite held?
INTROVIGNE: It started by invoking Satan, in a shaky Latin, according to the classic liturgy which turns the Catholic liturgy upside down. The faithful replied to the texts by heart. There was a sequel of ritual acts such as: lighting candles, Satanic spells, manipulation of objects, which lasted about twenty minutes. Then a priestess came in.

EPOCA: What do you mean?
INTROVIGNE: In Satanic rites a woman, a virgin is much better, acting as an “altar” is essential. In the US I’ve seen wooden supports anatomically shaped so as to host the priestess in a laid down position. In Italy it’s usually an uncomfortable table. That’s why, I guess, the woman came in after the rite had already started.

EPOCA: How old did she appear to be?
INTROVIGNE: I don’t think she was a chaste young woman. She was 40, more or less, good looking, but really embarrassed. May be, it was her first experience in this field. Again, in America I’ve seen naked women moving with extreme naturalness. Not in this case. She entered covered with a bathrobe. She took it off and stretched out on the altar.

EPOCA: What happened then?
INTROVIGNE: The “priest” carried out the rite with the deconsecration of the Host (they assured me it wasn’t a stolen host). He put it on the woman’s body and then he quickly, quite in a furtive manner, dipped it in her vagina. Then he raised the chalice. The elixir, a mixture of sperm and vaginal secretions which serves for giving immortality and creating the “body of glory”, had been prepared in advance and was ready.

EPOCA: Did any copulation take place?
INTROVIGNE: Yes it did, soon after. But it was quite short. It lasted a couple of minutes more or less. And it was just between the priest and the woman-altar. It was like if the act was mimed, unlike the ceremonies where I’ve seen celebrant and “altar” find pleasure while executing the rite, a rite where the faithful as well took part.

EPOCA: What did the followers do meanwhile?
INTROVIGNE: They drank from the chalice. But they remained rigorously dressed.

EPOCA: Did they sing any hymn?
INTROVIGNE: No, they didn’t. They mumbled some invocations to the devil, while there was an atmosphere of strong emotional tension. There were neither songs, nor musical instruments, unlike the US where you can often hear a pianola accompaniment.

EPOCA: In what manner did the ceremony end?
INTROVIGNE: The priest blessed the faithful using a liquid which I guess was water. Manuals talk about urine… and it should be the woman-altar who produces it. But I don’t definitely believe that the lady from Turin, who was already really embarrassed, could be willing to be of any help.

Besides the above accounts, former Jesuit priests Malachi Martin and Alberto Rivero told Americans how they attended Black Masses before they left the Order.


In a web site called puritans.net, they gave a short synopsis of what the two priests said:

Malachi Martin documents that a Black Mass was held in St Paul’s Cathedral in 1963. During this heinous affair, several cardinals “installed Lucifer to his appropriate place” in the Vatican, as “head of the church.”


Martin claims that a good deal of the child molestation occurring now is actually Satanic worship. Part of the Luciferian rites of many of the priests, nuns, and hierarchy. He intimates that many who engage in this kind of “worship” are indeed secret Masons.


Malachi Martin was himself a Jesuit priest, in a high official capacity in the Vatican. “In God’s Name” has a photograph of Malachi Martin, seated right next to Pope John Paul I – the Pope that was murdered. Martin is seated between Pope John Paul I (who is on the Papal Throne) and Diego Lorenzi, an aide who accompanied John Paul I from Venice, where he was previously.


Alberto Rivera also says that he attended, as a Jesuit, a Black Mass in the Vatican. With the Jesuits. Martin himself did not attend the Black Mass, but he knew of it. He later resigned the Jesuits – around 1972.He was “Laicized” so that he could write books on the corruptions he had seen in the Vatican.


He recently passed away in 1999. Some Catholics think he was murdered. He also wrote a blockbuster entitled “The Jesuits: The Society of Jesus and the Betrayal of the Roman Catholic Church.” In that book, he details how the Jesuits became Communists in the 1960’s, under their then Secretary General, Pedro Arrupe. And he documents how they fomented Communist revolutions in several countries—especially in Latin American and Africa.

Petrus Romanus: Coronation 2013

Petrus Romanus: Pope Advocates Global Wealth Redistribution, Renounces Free Market Economics as “Crude and Naive”

petrusromanus

Since his coronation, Pope Francis has made waves throughout the Catholic community, often shunning generally accepted Papal tradition for a more modern and progressive world. He is, for lack of a better term, a reformer. From refusing the luxurious living quarters traditionally reserved for the head of the Church in the Vatican, to turning Catholic dogma on its head by suggesting it’s OK to be gay when he addressed the issue by asking, “Who am I to judge?” Francis is unlike any popes who have come before him.

By some accounts, he has been a positive influence, as evidenced by a growing interest in Catholicism since he took the reigns of the Church. For others, especially those who have followed the centuries old prophecies of Saint Malachy, his message is being approached with caution and skepticism.

Now, in his first encyclical, a Papal letter sent to Bishops of the Roman Catholic Church, Francis has once again caused an uproar by claiming free market capitalism and trickle-down economics are unproven theories not backed with facts.

“It is no longer simply about exploitation and oppression, but something new,” the pontiff wrote in the 85-page document. “Exclusion ultimately has to do with what it means to be a part of the society in which we live; those excluded are no longer society’s underside or its fringes or its disenfranchised – they are no longer even a part of it. The excluded are not the ‘exploited’ but the outcast, the ‘leftovers’.

The pope also denounced “trickle-down” theories of economics promoted by many conservatives and politicians who espouse an unregulated free market.

“In this context, some people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world,” he said. “This opinion, which has never been confirmed by the facts, expresses a crude and naïve trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power and in the sacralized workings of the prevailing economic system. Meanwhile, the excluded are still waiting.”

“In addition to restating opposition by the Catholic Church to abortion, the new Pope criticized free market capitalism and advocated wealth redistribution,” notes Kurt Nimmo of Infowars about the Pope’s latest ideas.

While the free market system as it exists today is certainly not ideal, especially considering the elite political machinations taking place behind the scenes on a global scale (including within the halls of the Vatican itself), Pope Francis seems to indicate in his encyclical that the solution is wealth redistribution – on a global scale.

Helping the poor and destitute has always been a tenet of Christianity and Catholicism, but the Pope’s statements become suspect for a variety of reasons, with one of the keys being the notion that he is the fulfillment of a prophecy that claims Francis will be the Pope that ushers in an era right out of the Book of Revelations.

The hesitation for many in subscribing to Francis’ message of reformation is attributed to a document referred to as the Prophecy of the Popes, which was hidden in the vaults of the Vatican for nearly 900 years, but followed closely by insiders:

In 1139 A.D. the Catholic Saint Malachy was said to have experienced visions during a trip to Rome. He subsequently put these visions to paper and penned a document containing 112 short phrases purporting to describe all future popes that would head the Catholic Church. Though not a part of official Catholic dogma or church teachings, this Prophecy of the Popes is well known by Vatican officials and church scholars because it has been remarkably accurate about naming the last 111 heads of one of the world’s oldest and most widespread religions.

According to researchers, theologians and evangelical scholars, the phrases Malachy scribed in his writings offer up the “nature, name, destiny or coat of arms” of every pope in succession and culminate with the naming of the 112th pope.

Now, according to prophecy, the 112th Pope will step up to head the Church, and he will be named Petrus Romanus, or Peter the Roman.

Here’s the scary part, and one that has given Catholics and other theologians pause, because according to Malachy’s prophecy, Petrus Romanus is to be the final pope, who will oversee not only the destruction of the Catholic Church, but the world as we know it:

“In  extreme persecution the seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman…”

“Who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the terrible or fearsome judge will judge his people.

The End.”

Prophecy of the Popes – Attributed to St. Malachy circa  1139 A.D.

Tom Horn of Raiders News Update and one of the world’s foremost experts on the subject published a book in 2012 with theologian Chris Putnam titled Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope Is Here. In their book, the researches claim that the 111th Pope, Benedict, would resign from his position, something that had not happened for 600 years. Benedict did, in fact, resign less than a year later and was replaced by current Pope Francis.

According to Horn, though Francis’ name does not directly match that of “Petrus Romanus,” he may well be fulfilling the age-old prophecy of Malachy:

Horn has said a pope of Italian descent would fulfill the prophecy, noting Bergoglio is the son of Italian parents and a Jesuit.

“Being a Jesuit is a very important aspect of our prediction in our book,” Horn told WND in an email.

He also sees significance in Bergoglio naming himself after Francis of Assisi, an Italian, or Roman, priest whose original name was Francesco di Pietro (Peter) di Bernardone, “literally, Peter the Roman.”

What’s more, in a recent interview Tom Horn tied together Malachy’s writings with the research of other Vatican scholars and theologians which indicate that, while Francis himself may not be the biblical anti-christ, he may be the world leader who introduces him, supports his ideas and helps to convince unwitting followers to put their trust in him.

Something big is coming… it does involve the war of wars… and I believe that we’re on the precipice of it right now.

I want to talk about the strategems that I believe will be used to initiate it…

It is a war between good and evil… but on the surface it might not appear to be because it’s also going to include believers against believers… and I’m talking about some of the biggest ministries in the world…

Tom Horn Full Interview with Steve Quayle on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report:

*Note: This is a 3 hour interview and worth listening to in full. For those with limited time, we suggest forwarding to about 1:03:00 into the interview where Tom Horn details his research. 

Stepping outside of Church dogma by attacking the concept of free market capitalism may soon be revealed to be a politically motivated move by the Pope with much deeper implications.

At this point, while we should not necessarily ignore Malachy’s prophecy or the Pope’s enyclical, some skepticism is certainly understandable.

Until Francis begins to put his support behind world leaders or political movements, it remains difficult, if not impossible, to confirm the Pope has ulterior motives and is, in fact, fulfillment of prophecy. However, the goings on in the world suggest that Tom Horn is on target with his assessment that something big is coming. And the fact that there are over one billion Catholics globally indicates that whatever happens will also involve the Church as well as this pope.

History proves that the Roman Catholic Church has been directly involved in confrontations since its very inception, so its involvement now would not be without precedent.

A Covenant toward One World Religion

Setting the stage for fulfillment of Revelation 13 …

The Pope And Islam’s Most Important Imam Just Signed A Covenant That Pushes Us Much Closer To A One World Religion

A historic interfaith covenant was signed in the Middle East on Monday, and the mainstream media in the United States has been almost entirely silent about it.  Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb is considered to be the most important imam in Sunni Islam, and he arrived at the signing ceremony in Abu Dhabi with Pope Francis “hand-in-hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood”.  But this wasn’t just a ceremony for Catholics and Muslims.  According to a British news source, the signing of this covenant was done “in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths”…

“The pope and the grand imam of al-Azhar have signed a historic declaration of fraternity, calling for peace between nations, religions and races, in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths.

“Pope Francis, the leader of the world’s Catholics, and Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the head of Sunni Islam’s most prestigious seat of learning, arrived at the ceremony in Abu Dhabi hand-in-hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood.”

In other words, there was a concerted effort to make sure that all of the religions of the world were represented at this gathering.

According to the official Vatican website, a tremendous amount of preparation went in to the drafting of this document, and it encourages believers from all religions “to shake hands, embrace one another, kiss one another, and even pray” with one another…

Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. 

It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon.”

Inconvenient Truth: Disgraceful Treatment of Jews

Again, my source is Petrus Romanus, The Final Pope Is Here by Thomas Horn and Cris Putnam …
Dr Arnold Fruchtenbaum wrote, “Theologically, Satan is the cause for all anti-Semitism.” Dr. Fruchtenbaum has deeply explored the relationship between Israel and the Catholic Church. Here are some “bullet points” concerning his findings and those of Thomas Horn:
  • Most Church history books either neglect or tone down the extent of Rome’s record of disgraceful treatment against Jews.
  • “Within a brief period following the Jewish Messiah’s death, resurrection, and ascension, many of the Early Church fathers seem to have completely forgotten that their Savior, His family, Paul, the twelve apostles, and the majority of the Early Church were Jews. VERY EARLY, MANY OF THE FATHERS BEGAN TEACHING THAT GOD HAD ETERNALLY CURSED THE JEWS FOR REJECTING THE MESSIAH. THEY TAUGHT THAT THE CHURCH WAS THE NEW ISRAEL. As time went on, Rome capitalized on this eisegesis declaring it authoritative. Because there seems to be some ambiguity surrounding the term ‘Israel,’ it is important to look at its use …”
  1. “First, [ISRAEL] was used as THE NEW NAME FOR JACOB, Son of Isaac [the son promised to Abraham and Sarah in their old age]….”
  2. “The second use of the term [ISRAEL] derives from when the united Davidic monarchy was divided into THE NORTHERN KINGDOM CALLED ISRAEL AND THE SOUTHERN KINGDOM CALLED JUDAH. In 721 BC, that northern kingdom, Israel, was sacked by the Assyrians; the ten tribes residing there were dispersed and ITS EXISTENCE AS A NATION ENDED. However, because there were representatives from all of the twelve tribes still residing in Judah, the southern kingdom, there really are no lost tribes [as portrayed by historians]. Only a short time later, the Babylonians did much the same to the Kingdom of Judah, although they preserved their identity as a people-group [collectively called Jews].
  3. “The third use of the word ensued when those Babylonian exiles [the southern kingdom was exiled for 70 years in Babylon] returned to the Promised Land and referred to it as ISRAEL (Ezra 2:2, 70; 4:3; 6:16; Neh. 1:6; 2:10; Zech. 12:1; Mal. 1:1).  THIS IS UNMISTAKABLY THE WAY IT IS USED BY JESUS AND THE VARIOUS NEW TESTAMENT WRITERS. It is often used to refer to the physical descendants of Abraham, especially in light of God’s covenant promises ...
  4. “Whereas the third sense is ethnic and political, the fourth REFERS TO THE ELECT REMNANT as argued by Paul in Romans chapter 9. In that chapter, PAUL DEFINES [ISRAEL] AS THOSE WHO ARE SPECIFICALLY CHOSEN BY GOD …
  5. “The fifth and final way is THE ONE POSSIBILITY WHERE ‘ISRAEL’ COULD OBLIQUELY REFER TO BELIEVING GENTILES. In Galatians 6:16, Paul prays for ‘the Israel of God.’ It seems in this letter, Paul is making a distinction between the ‘Jerusalem which is now’ (Gal. 4:25) and ‘Jerusalem which is above’ (Gal. 4:26). He also argues that, ‘THEY WHICH ARE OF FAITH, THE SAME ARE THE CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM’ (3:7). Even so, it is still possible to take this in the same sense as Romans 9: ethnic Jews who have come to faith in Jesus…. Arnold Fruchtenbaum argues, ‘Paul did not view the Church as a continuation of Old Testament Israel, but rather a new entity all together. Galatians 6:16 does not refer to all New Testament believers as the Israel of God, but only to the Jewish believers who are the believing remnant.’  While this one reference is debatable, GENTILES ARE ELSEWHERE CLEARLY DESCRIBED AS UNATURAL BRANCHES GRAFTED INTO ISRAEL (Romans 11:24)
“… there is no sound exegetical reason to believe the term ‘Israel’ should apply broadly to the Church. Nonetheless, this was the dominant dogma imposed by the Roman magisterium for millennia.” (Petrus Romanus, pgs. 348 -350)
  • “The Church fathers largely portrayed the Pharisees and priests as exclusively evil and hostile to the Gospel.” [I remember this from Sunday school curriculum that I was taught and have taught.– PY] “They cherry-picked statements from the Gospels and from Paul’s writings to justify their racist attacks while ignoring Paul’s own testimony to his heritage including his being a Pharisee (Phil 3:5). If anything, the Early Church served to drive Jews further from the truth. COULD THIS BE SATAN’S PRIMARY MEANS OF BLINDING THEM, THROUGH THE VERY ONES WHO WERE SUPPOSED TO BE MINISTERS OF RECONCILIATION  (2 Cor. 5:20)? It seems to be so.”
  • [The Early Church] accused Jews of murdering Jesus. This charge has been repeated over and over again by racist groups throughout history and is still promoted today. Of course, Jesus left no room for such heresy:  “Therefore doth my Father love me, because I LAY DOWN MY LIFE, that I may take it again. NO MAN TAKETH IT FROM ME, but I lay it down myself. I HAVE POWER TO LAY IT DOWN, AND I HAVE POWER TO TAKE IT AGAIN. This commandment I have received from my Father” (John 10:17-18).
  • According to John Chrysostom, Roman Catholic Saint and Doctor of the Church, Jews have committed the worst crimes imaginable. He advocated teachings  that God eternally hates Jews, they have no chance for atonement, they would never again be a sovereign nation, and they will not rebuild the Temple. Since God chose to reinstate Israel’s position as a nation (against all odds), perhaps we can be confident that prophecy concerning a rebuilt temple in still future days indicates a Third Temple is NOT out of the question as Mr. Chrysostrom declared in his Eight Homilies Against the Jews.
Continuing the historical account …
  • AD 306: Spanish church leaders issued a decree absolutely forbidding Christians and Jews to marry. (Note: God forbade the descendants of Jacob — aka Israel — to marry people who did not worship Him, because He knew that their pagan spouses would turn them against the one true Lord, God.)
  • Constantine ordered all Jews to leave Rome.
  • AD 341: The Nicaean Council ruled that CHRISTIANS COULD HAVE NOTHING IN COMMON WITH JEWS (Including commemorating Passover, which then became Easter, celebrated only by “Christians.”)
  • AD 434-481: The Council of Laodecia  officially banned Christians from keeping the Jewish Sabbath on Friday through Saturday, sundown to sundown, as ordained by the Lord God.
  • The Seventh Century: Gaul, Burgundy, and Lombardy in northern Italy ordered all Jews to leave their territories. They were given the choice between forced conversion or death. Children were taken from their parents to be reared as Roman Catholics. In Spain, Judaism was officially outlawed. And later Jews were expelled from the Kingdom of Granada.
  • The Ninth Century:  “…there is no sound exegetical reason to believe the term ‘Israel’ should apply broadly to the Church. Nonetheless, this was the dominant dogma imposed by the Roman magisterium for millennia.” (Petrus Romanus, pgs. 348 -350)
  • The rationale for THE CRUSADES was to enforce apostate Roman Catholic theological traditions rather than biblical theology.
  • AD 1095: Pope Urban II’s rationale for the first Crusade was to defend pilgrims who were traveling to the Holy Land. Rome made pilgrimage to Jerusalem a tradition that they claimed would “gain special favor with God, obtain absolution [forgiveness] from particularly bad sins, or even spring deceased relatives from purgatory [where Catholicism claims souls reside after death if a person wasn’t really bad enough to go directly to hell]” (P.R. page 353)
  • Even though the crusaders seemingly believed they were doing the will of God [similar to Muslims believing that they do the will of Allah], they viciously slaughtered Jews in the most horrid ways imaginable.… In 1099, when Jerusalem was conquered ostensibly ‘in the name of Christ,’ the crusaders rounded up what was left of Jesus’ ethnic brethren into a synagogue and set it ablaze.” (P.R. page 354)
  • Ludicrous charges were leveled against Jews, like using children’s blood  in Passover celebrations, and forced laws like forcing Jews to wear distinctive yellow patches (adopted by Adolf Hitler, the 20th century Fuhrer of Germany).
  • AD 1189: The Jewish quarter of London was intentionally set ablaze at the coronation of King Richard I.
  • AD 1290: Jews were systematically purged from England and Wales, then Paris and surrounding areas of France. 1306: Expelled from the Rhineland, then Hungary; 1394: Expelled from south of France.
  • AD 1492: Christopher Columbus set sail just as 500,000 Jews were being expelled from Spain and their wealth confiscated.  Within 70 years the population of Spain was reduced from 10 million to 6 million by the banishment of Jews, Moors and Morescoes (‘Christianized Moors’). The Black Death wiped out nearly a third of Europe’s population, including Jews. (Jews were blamed for poisoning the water supply with human hearts and body parts, resulting in hundreds of Jewish communities being completely wiped out.)
  • POPE SIXTUS IV INSTITUTED THE INQUISITION, SPECIFICALLY TARGETING JEWS AS HERETICS. Because of Rome’s penchant for revising history, the death toll is difficult to determine. The Inquisitions truly merited the term “holocaust” long before Hitler’s atrocities were made known to the American public.
  • AD 1523: Martin Luther (father of the Protestant Reformation) wrote that the Jews should be dealt with gently, not by Papal Law, but by the Law of Christian love. Unfortunately he later became frustrated that this did not result in the mass conversion of Jews, so he advocated the burning of synagogues and books, expelling Jews from their homes and seizing assests. (NOTE: Luther never claimed infallibility.)
  • AD 1751: Pope Benedict XIV issued an Encyclical called, “On Jews and Christians Living in the Same Place.” He was deeply  troubled that Polish Jews were becoming more successful at business that Roman Catholics, and Jews were hiring Catholics as servants. He declared that Catholics should do no business with Jews and be “free from and unaffected by all dealings with them.” (A Quo Primum, 6/14/1751)
  • Adolf Hitler was a baptized Roman Catholic and received the blessing of two popes when he became Fuhrer of the Third Reich and enforcer of the Final Solution that sent over 6 million Jews to their deaths. One of Hitler’s favorite propaganda items was a sham called THE PROTOCOLS OF THE LEARNED ELDERS OF ZION. “Conspiracy theorists” have written much about the connection of this manuscript with the firm establishment of The Illuminati. There is ample evidence  in the historical record of the damage this pamphlet has done.
  • July 8, 1940: Time Magazine revealed that the Vatican, in allegiance with the fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, had its sights on gaining Jerusalem post-World War II. The Catholic Church urged the planting of the Italian flag over Jerusalem. The Manchester Guardian reported that Axis powers planned to “turn Palestine over to the jurisdiction of the Vatican and transport Palestine’s Jewish population to Ethiopia. Under the plan … the Pope will care for the holy places in Palestine, [and] let Italy run the country.” Ultimately this did not come to pass.
One more fact that I’ve wondered about for years …

Perhaps the only positive thing the Second World War did for the Jews was provide the impetus for the establishment of their homeland in Canaan. We use the biblical term Canaan because that was what it was called before the Israelites first moved there [named after the descendants of  Noah’s cursed grandson, Canaan]. THE TERM ‘PALESTINE’ IS ACTUALLY AN ANTI-SEMITIC SLUR CREATED BY THE ROMANS TO BELITTLE THE JEWS AFTER THEY SACKED JERUSALEM IN AD 70 [destroyed the Second Temple] AND PUT DOWN THE [JEWISH] REVOLT OF AD 135. As they auctioned Jews off as slaves, the Emperor Hadrian DETERMINED TO RENAME THE PROMISED LAND AFTER KING DAVID’S CLASSIC FOES, THE PHILISTINES. The Latin name … was later shortened to Palaestina and THIS IS WHERE THE ANGLICIZED ‘PALESTINE’ COMES FROM. Thus, the name ‘Palestine’ was Rome’s original way of rubbing in the seizure of the Jewish homeland.” (P.R. pages 360-361)

When I think about all the misinformation that I have been required and duty bound to learn  over my lifetime, I am sickened — I absolutely do not fault my teachers. But I am determined to do everything I can to get this corrected history out to as many people as possible.
