Now let’s FOCUS on the KEY in Alberto Rivera’s testimony — JERUSALEM!
“A Jesuit cardinal named Augustine Bea showed us how desperately the Roman Catholics wanted JERUSALEM at the end of the third century.”
REMEMBER: The Vatican wanted to seize control of JERUSALEM.
“Because of its religious history and its strategic location, the Holy City was considered a priceless treasure.”
REMEMBER: JERUSALEM was considered A PRICELESS TREASURE.
“A scheme had to be developed to make Jerusalem a Roman Catholic city.”
REMEMBER: THE SCHEME was intended to STOP the spread of THE TRUE GOSPEL.
“The only way Satan could stop this thrust was to create a counterfeit “Christian” religion to destroy the work of God. The solution was in Rome. Their religion had come from ancient Babylon … “
REMEMBER: ROMAN CATHOLICISM was created to destroy the spread of TRUTH.
“Augustine became the bishop of North Africa and was effective in winning Arabs to Roman Catholicism, including whole tribes. … the concept of looking for an Arab prophet developed.”
REMEMBER: MUHAMMED was raised from childhood to DECEIVE ARABS.
“The pope moved quickly and issued bulls granting the Arab generals permission to invade and conquer the nations of North Africa. The Vatican helped to finance the building of these massive Islamic armies in exchange for three favors:
1. Eliminate the Jews and Christians (true believers, which they called infidels).
2. Protect the Augustinian Monks and Roman Catholics.
3. Conquer Jerusalem for “His Holiness” in the Vatican.
“As time went by, the power of Islam became tremendous – Jews and true Christians were slaughtered, and Jerusalem fell into their hands. Roman Catholics were never attacked, nor were their shrines, during this time.
“But when the pope asked for Jerusalem, he was surprised at their denial! The Arab generals had such military success that they could not be intimidated by the pope – nothing could stand in the way of their own plan.
“Under Waraquah’s [the child’s mentor] direction, Muhammad wrote that Abraham offered Ishmael as a sacrifice. The Bible says that Isaac [ISSAC, son of Abraham and Sarah, the son promised by God] was the sacrifice [Genesis 17-22] but Muhammad removed Isaac’s name and inserted Ishmael’s name. [ISHMAEL, son of Abram and Hagar — the firstborn son.]
“As a result of this and Muhammad’s vision, the faithful Muslims built a mosque, the Dome of the Rock, in Ishmael’s honor on the site of the Jewish temple that was destroyed in 70 AD. This made Jerusalem the 2nd most holy place in the Islam faith.
“The pope realized what they had created was out of control when he heard they were calling “His Holiness” an infidel. The Muslim generals were determined to conquer the world for Allah and now they turned toward Europe. Islamic ambassadors approached the pope and asked for papal bulls to give them permission to invade European countries.
“The Vatican was outraged; war was inevitable. Temporal power and control of the world was considered the basic right of the pope. He wouldn’t think of sharing it with those whom he considered heathens.
“The pope raised up his armies and called them crusades to hold back the children of Ishmael from grabbing Catholic Europe. The crusades lasted centuries and Jerusalem slipped out of the pope’s hands.”
REMEMBER the CONNECTIONS …
CATHOLICISM was created by greedy dissenters of the true gospel —>
THE NEW RELIGION was built on ROMAN, BABYLONIAN IDOLATRY —>
THE CATHOLIC CHURCH wanted authority over JERUSALEM — >
THE POPE created an ARAB ARMY to seize Jerusalem from the Jews —>
THE MUSLIM ARMY turned on the CATHOLIC POPE and CLAIMED JERUSALEM!
REMEMBER: ISLAM, ALLAH as god, Muhammed as THE PROPHET (Jesus considered A prophet, second to Muhammed) were all CREATED by human imaginations!
REMEMBER THIS most of all …
SATAN wants people divided against themselves. SATAN is the invisible enemy. SATAN uses the passing of time as a tool to erase history and deceive masses.
“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;
wisdom and power are his.
He changes times and seasons;
he deposes kings and raises up others.
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to the discerning.
He reveals deep and hidden things;
he knows what lies in darkness,
and light dwells with him.
The struggle to claim Jerusalem continues!
