This Revelation Timeline Decoded Bible study focuses on the fruit of the son of perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2, and the beast, false prophet and harlot church of Revelation.
I prove out who is the son of perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2, antichrist beast, false prophet and harlot church of Revelation; in the verse by verse studies on this website, and in the Revelation Timeline Decoded YouTube videos and book.
The focus of this study is to show you the rotten fruit of those entities, so that you can see the fulfillment of Messiah’s words in Matthew 7:15-19.
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Revelation 13:11 proclaims that there are two horns, two leaders, who are like a lamb and speak as a dragon. It’s pointing to the false prophet Jesuit Superior General and the antichrist beast pope, who are priests of the harlot church of Rome. The black pope and the white pope come in sheep’s clothing, they pretend to serve Messiah, but they are ravening wolves who serve Satan to make war with Messiah and His saints.
In this study I provide overwhelming evidence of their wicked ways, which the enemy has hidden, so you can see that there are no other entities which fulfill these roles in such exacting detail. I’m not focusing on how their evil ways affect the whole world, as that’s a much broader discussion; but on how they have worked against Messiah and His saints, and mislead people ecclesiastically.
NOTE: On the bottom of the study is a green Print/PDF button that you can use to make a PDF copy of the study that you can print, as there’s a lot of information.
Who fulfills the role of the man of sin, the son of perdition?
Judas Iscariot, who was called the son of perdition, gives us an example of someone who pretends to serve Messiah but is really a betrayer. He was a thief who stole money from the treasury of Messiah. And then he sold out Messiah for thirty pieces of silver.
The man of sin, the son of perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2 is also someone who proclaims to represent Messiah, but is a betrayer.
He’s not just a sinner, but the chief sinner whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming.
A sinner breaks the ten commandments, but the chief sinner causes others to do so.
The popes teach a false gospel of works through the sacraments. In the name of Jesus Christ, they have caused billions of Catholics to be left lost in their sins.
Catholics are under strong delusion and they’re believing the lie of Romanism. Most have received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved; as they blindly trust their priest instead of proving out their faith in the Scriptures.
Scripture says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
The popes teach that Mary is the intercessor to the Father.
Pope Pius XI said, “What will it cost you, oh Mary, to hear our prayer? What will it cost you to save us? Has not Jesus placed in your hands all the treasures of His grace and mercy? You sit crowned Queen at the right hand of your son: your dominion reaches as far as the heavens and to you are subject the earth and all creatures dwelling thereon. Your dominion reaches even down into the abyss of hell, and you alone, oh Mary, save us from the hands of Satan.” (Pope Pius XI: Quas Primas (On the Feast of Christ the King), Encyclical promulgated on 12-11-1925, #18.)
This denies Messiah, as Scripture proclaims. “For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all.” 1 Timothy 2:5-6
A Google search of the phrase”Pope Francis Mary quotes“ shows you how the current pope misleads people about Mary.
The popes have proclaimed to be God, forgive sins and provide salvation; which is blasphemy and it breaks the first commandment!
Pope Innocent III declared, “We may according to the fullness of our power, dispose of the law and dispense above the law. Those whom the Pope of Rome doth separate, it is not a man that separates them but God. For the Pope holdeth place on earth, not simply of a man but of the true God.” (Source: “Decretals of Gregory IX,” Book 1, chapter 3.)
Pope Pius V blasphemed, “The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth.” (Source: Pope Pius V, quoted in Barclay, Cities Petrus Bertanous Chapter XXVII: 218.)
Pope Leo XIII declared, “We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty.” (Source: Pope Leo XIII Encyclical Letter, June 20, 1894) “But the supreme teacher in the Church is the Roman Pontiff. Union of minds, therefore, requires, together with a perfect accord in the one faith, complete submission and obedience of will to the Church and to the Roman Pontiff, as to God Himself.” (Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical Letter, “On the Chief Duties of Christians as Citizens”, dated January 10, 1890, trans. in The Great Encyclical Letters of Pope Leo XIII, p. 193
Ferraris Ecclesiastical dictionary says, “The Pope is of so great dignity, and so exalted that he is not a mere man, but as it were God and the vicar of God.”
The popes have proclaimed that salvation is by the words of the Bible and their dogma.
“The belief in the Bible as the sole source of faith is unhistorical, illogical, fatal to the virtue of faith, and destructive of unity.” The Catholic Encyclopedia, Volume XIII, Protestantism, Section III A – Sola Scriptura (“Bible Alone”), Nihil Obstat, February 1, 1912 by Remy Lafort, D.D., Censor, Imprimatur. John Cardinal Farley, Archbishop of New York
They anathematized anyone who looked to the Scriptures as the ultimate authority on “doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness,” rather than to the teaching of the papal church.
The popes have proclaimed that salvation is only through them and that if you’re not part of their church, you are damned to hell. Scripture proclaims that salvation is through faith in Messiah, and in Revelation 18, Messiah tells people to come out of the influence of the harlot church of Rome.
Pope Innocent III (1198-1216) declared, “We believe, and with our lips, we confess but one Church, not that of the heretics, but the Holy Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church, outside which we believe that no one is saved.” ( Pope Innocent III, Denzinger 423) He issued a Papal Bull declaring “anyone who attempts to construe a personal view of God which conflicts with church dogma must be burned without pity.”
Pope Boniface VIII (1294-1303) declared, “We are compelled, our faith urging us, to believe and to hold – and we do firmly believe and simply confess – that there is one holy Catholic Apostolic Church, outside of which there is neither salvation nor remission of sins. We declare, say, define, and pronounce that it is absolutely necessary for the salvation of every human creature to be subject to the Roman Pontiff.” (Pope Boniface VIII, Papal Bull Unam Sanctam 1302 AD)
Pope Eugene IV (1431-47) declared, “No one, let his alms giving be as great as it may, no one, even if he pour out his blood for the Name of Jesus Christ, can be saved unless they abide within the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.” (Pope Eugene IV, The Bull Cantate Domino, 1441)
Pope Gregory XVI (1831-46) declared, “It is not possible to worship God truly except in Her; all who are outside Her will not be saved.” (Pope Gregory XVI Encyclical, Summo Jugiter)
Pope Pius IX (1846-78) declared, “It must be held by faith that outside the Apostolic Roman Church, no one can be saved; that this is the only ark of salvation; that he who shall not have entered therein will perish in the flood.” (Pope Pius IX, Denzinger 1647)
Pope Clement VI (1342-52), “No man outside obedience to the Pope of Rome can ultimately be saved. All who have raised themselves against the faith of the Roman Church, and died in final impenitence have been damned, and gone down to Hell.” (Pope Clement VI, “Super Quibusdam,” Apostolic Digest, Book V)
Pope Leo XII (1823-29) declared, “We profess that there is no salvation outside the (Catholic) Church. For the Church is the pillar and ground of the truth. With reference to those words, Augustine says: `If any man be outside the Church he will be excluded from the number of sons, and will not have God for Father since he has not the Church for mother.” ( Pope Leo XII, Encyclical, Ubi Primum)
Pope Leo XIII (1878-1903) declared, “Remember and understand well that where Peter is, there is the Church; that those who refuse to associate in communion with the Chair of Peter belong to Antichrist, not to Christ. He who would separate himself from the Roman Pontiff has no further bond with Christ.” (Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, Acts of Leo XIII: Supreme Pontiff”, 1896 )
Pope Pius XII (1939-58) declared, “O Mary Mother of Mercy and Refuge of Sinners! We beseech thee to look with pitying eyes on poor heretics and schismatics. Do thou, who art the Seat of Wisdom, enlighten the minds wretchedly enfolded in the darkness of ignorance and sin, that they may clearly recognize the Holy, Catholic, Roman Church to be the only true Church of Jesus Christ, outside of which neither sanctity nor salvation can be found.” (Pope Pius XII, The Raccolta, Benzinger Brothers, Boston, 1957, No. 626.)
“By divine mandate the interpreter and guardian of the Scriptures, and the depository of Sacred Tradition living within her, the Church alone is the entrance to salvation: She alone, by herself, and under the protection and guidance of the Holy Spirit, is the source of truth.” (Pope Pius XII Allocution to the Gregorian, October 17, 1953)
Pope Benedict XV (1914-22) declared, “Such is the nature of the Catholic faith that it does not admit of more or less, but must be held as a whole, or as a whole rejected: This is the Catholic faith, which unless a man believe faithfully and firmly, he cannot be saved.” (Pope Benedict XV Encyclical, Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum)
Pope Pius XI (1922-39) declared, “The Catholic Church alone is keeping the true worship. This is the font of truth, this is the house of faith, this is the temple of God; if any man enter not here, or if any man go forth from it, he is a stranger to the hope of life and salvation. Furthermore, in this one Church of Christ, no man can be or remain who does not accept, recognize and obey the authority and supremacy of Peter and his legitimate successors.” (Pope Pius XI Encyclical, Mortalium Animos)
Pope John XXIII (1958-63) declared, “Into this fold of Jesus Christ no man may enter unless he be led by the Sovereign Pontiff and only if they be united to him can men be saved.” (Pope John XXIII, Coronation Homily, Nov. 4, 1958)
Like Judas, the popes of Rome pretend to be a leader of Messiah’s Ekklesia, but they’re betrayers who cause Catholics to believe in a false gospel, leaving them lost in their sins.
Do you see the sinfulness of proclaiming to be the one-true church of Messiah, while preaching a false gospel, and under this premise, persecuting the saints who follow the Scriptural faith?
Do you see the wickedness of causing Catholics to believe that they will be damned to hell if they leave the Roman Catholic Church?
The popes now proclaim that all religions lead to the same God. They’re doing this to gather the whole world under their authority. The leaders of the major religions, and even of Protestant churches, are joining with the Pope in the name of unity. This denies both the Heavenly Father and Messiah who is our intercessor.
The popes deceive people by proclaiming that Peter the Apostle was the first pope. History shows that it was probably Simon Magus, the sorcerer who tried to buy the power of the Holy Spirit. Ironically, when he was rebuked by Peter the Apostle, Simon Magus went to Rome to feign to be an apostle of Messiah. In 1 Peter 2:6-9, Peter points to Messiah as the chief corner stone, the stone of stumbling, the rock of offense. Read Peter The First Pope
The popes have Catholics pray to a priest for forgiveness, which is not scriptural. This leaves Catholics without forgiveness for their sins. Messiah told us to pray to the Heavenly Father in His name.
The popes cause Catholics to make graven images and bow to them, which breaks the second commandment. They have many graven images of Mary before which Catholics bow down and pray.
In Deuteronomy 4:16-28, we see the Heavenly Father’s anger towards people who proclaim to follow Him, but make and bow down to graven images; which are made of wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.
The popes deny the Heavenly Fathers’ command in Exodus 20:4-5, “Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: 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.”
The popes removed the second commandment from their list and split the tenth into two.
Ferraris’ Ecclesiastical Dictionary Decretal, de Tranlatic Episcop. Cap says that the Pope can modify divine law, “The Pope has the power to change times, to abrogate laws, and to dispense with all things, even the precepts of Christ. The Pope has the authority and often exercised it, to dispense with the command of Christ.” . ‘The Pope can modify divine law.’
The pope’s crucifix is a wicked graven image which mocks Messiah as it keeps Him on the cross. They make Messiah the eternal victim and are symbolically putting Him to open shame per Galatians 3:13, “Christ did redeem us from the curse of the law, having become for us a curse, for it hath been written, `Cursed is every one who is hanging on a tree.”
The number 666 in Revelation 13:18 is Greek Chi-Xi-Stigma, which means Christ (Chi) affixed to a cross (Xi) with nails (stigma), which points to the evil crucifixes which are displayed in Catholic churches and homes around the world.
Even more wicked than the crucifix is the depiction of a distorted figure of Messiah on the bent crucifix. It reportedly was displayed by black magicians and sorcerers of the Middle Ages who used it as an anti-Christ symbol. Here we see John Paul II with the bent cross and his pagan Dagon fish-god mitre.
The popes cause Catholics to make an upside cross, which Satanically mocks Messiah.
The Catholic sign of the cross is made when Catholics use their right hand to touch their forehead, heart and two shoulders. It’s a mark of Catholics who do it because they revere the pope as their leader, but it has a sinister meaning.
The church of Satan uses the upside down cross to mock Messiah.
The popes have erected many Egyptian and Roman obelisks, which are phallic symbols of the Babylonian sun god Nimrod and the Egyptian sun god Ra.
The Vaticano Egyptian Obelisk was erected in the middle of a sun wheel in St. Peter’s Square by Pope Sixtus V in 1586.
The Esquiline Roman Obelisk was erected by Pope Sixtus V behind Santa Maria Maggiore in 1587.
The image is of the Lateranense Egyptian Obelisk which was erected by Pope Sixtus V in 1588 near the Lateran Basilica, which is the cathedral church of the Diocese of Rome and serves as the seat of the bishop of Rome, the pope.
The Flaminio Egyptian Obelisk was erected by Pope Sixtus V in front of the Santa Maria in Montesanto Catholic church in 1589.
The Minerveo Egyptian Obelisk was erected by Pope Alexander VII in 1667.
The Macuteo Egyptian Obelisk was erected in front of the Pantheon by Pope Clement XI in 1711.
The Quirinale Roman Obelisk was erected by Pope Pius VI on Quirinal Hill in 1786.
The Sallustiano Roman Obelisk was erected by Pope Pius VI in 1789.
The Solare Egyptian Obelisk was erected by Pope Pius VI in front of the Palazzo Montecitorio in 1792.
The Pinciano Roman Obelisk was erected by Pope Pius VII in 1822.
A priest of Messiah should have nothing to do with these phallic symbols of the pagan sun god, except to help destroy them.
“And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place.” Deuteronomy 12:3
The popes blaspheme the name of the Heavenly Father by taking His name in vain, breaking the third commandment.
Messiah forbid calling religious leaders by the title of ‘father,’ but the Popes have Catholics call him ‘Holy Father‘ which denies the Heavenly Father. They also proclaim these titles which belong to the Heavenly Father; His Holiness, Most Blessed Father, Vicar of God, God on Earth, and the true God.
The popes banned and burned the Scriptures and prohibited lay people from reading them. Imagine, a supposed priest of Messiah banning people from reading the Holy Scriptures!
The Bible was written in Hebrew and Greek, but the Popes had it translated into the uncommon language of Latin, so that they could hide what Scripture declares.
The Catholic Church persecuted people groups such as the Vaudois, the Waldenses and the Albigenses, who were used by the Heavenly Father to preserve His Holy Word, preach the pure Gospel of Messiah, and testify against the Papal Church. The popes forbid Bible reading, as it testifies to salvation by faith in Messiah, not by works through the Papal Church. And it describes them as the little horn of Daniel, the son of perdition, and the beast of Revelation, who leads the harlot church of Rome.
Pope Innocent III decreed, “We prohibit laymen possessing copies of the Old and New Testament. …We forbid them most severely to have the above books in the popular vernacular.” (meaning in their country’s native language, as the Papal Church only allowed their priests to read it in Latin). (The Council of Toulouse, Canon 14)
Pope Pius IV said, “The Bible is not for the people; whosoever will be saved must renounce it. It is a forbidden book. Bible societies are satanic contrivances.” (Catholic Church Council of Trent, Rule III)
Pope Leo XIII declared, “As it has been clearly shown by experience that, if the holy Bible in the vernacular is generally permitted without any distinction, more harm than utility is thereby caused.” (Great Encyclical Letters of Leo XIII, pp. 412-413)
A ruling of the Council of Tarragona of 1234 AD proclaimed, “No one may possess the books of the Old and New Testaments in the romance language (any language other than Latin), and if anyone possesses them he must turn them over to the local bishop within eight days after promulgation of this decree, so that they may be burned.”
The pope had the bones of John Wycliffe dug up and burned them, because the morning star of the Reformation translated the Scriptures into English. The pope had William Tyndale strangled and burned at the stake, because he translated the Scriptures into English. They did these wicked things in the name of Jesus Christ!
The popes have made war with the saints in causing Catholics to torture and murder tens of millions of saints during the Dark Ages and Inquisition, which breaks the sixth commandment, thou shalt not murder. A Google search of the phrase ‘Catholic torture devices‘ shows the many barbaric instruments that they used to inflict pain.
An example of this persecution took place in 1572 AD, when the Roman Catholic soldiers butchered upwards of 100,000 French Protestants (Huguenots) during the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre that started in Paris. Upon hearing of the bloodshed in Paris, Pope Gregory XIII celebrated by declaring a jubilee day of public thanksgiving. He had a coin made to commemorate the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre, which shows an angel (symbolizing the harlot Roman Catholic Church) holding a cross and a sword slaying the Huguenot saints.
Here’s a coin that King Louis XIV had struck, which says ‘Extinguish Heresies,’ marking his revocation of the Edict of Nantes (1685), causing the saints to be persecuted. It features a woman, the harlot church of Rome, seeking to eliminate the witnesses against them.
Here’s a 1686 French medal marking the Huguenots’ destruction, in which the Pope is wearing his three-tiered tiara. He’s holding two keys in his left hand, declaring his authority in heaven and earth, and three arrows in his right hand, signifying his thunderbolt bulls. A Jesuit priest is holding a scroll, no doubt their wicked Constitutions, which lay out their plan to bring the Protestants back under the pope’s power.
In the name of Jesus Christ, the popes have banned reading the Scriptures and persecuted Messiah’s saints, who witnessed against them.
The popes made themselves rich with the collection of indulgences and stealing the wealth of Catholics, which breaks the eighth commandment. In 1200, Pope Innocent III published a Papal Bull granting church ownership of all wealth and property belonging to individuals convicted of heresy.
In 1515, Pope Leo X issued a Bull of Indulgence authorizing letters of pardons for every evil imaginable; murder, sorcery, sodomy, etc. Half of the revenues from Leo’s indulgence went to a fund for the building of St. Peter’s Cathedral
They spent many billions of dollars to build their many ornate basilicas instead of using the money to preach the Scriptural Gospel, deliver Bibles worldwide, provide food and water to people, and end homelessness.
She has purchased the items that are listed in Revelation 18 from the kings of the earth, to build her many ornate basilicas (gold, silver, precious wood, brass, iron, marble), to adorn her priests (fine linen, purple, scarlet, silk) and to carry out the sacraments (incense, ointments, flour, oil, wine).
The popes oversee a priesthood which sodomizes boys. Malachi Martin (1921-1999), a high-ranking and respected Roman Catholic Professor, Vatican diplomat and Papal adviser, exposes, with an unsparing hand, unwittingly or otherwise, the sinister nature of the Vatican. His testimony is all the more valuable coming from a source as he. The statement is from his book Windswept House: “…it became unarguable (to Pope Paul) that now during this papacy, the Roman Catholic organization carried a permanent presence of clerics who worshiped Satan… of bishops and priests who sodomize boys and each other; of nuns who performed the ‘Black Rites’ of Wicca… including Sundays and Holy Days… were committed and permitted at holy Altars… Sacrilegious actions and rites were not only performed on Christ’s Altars, but had connivance or at least the tacit permission of certain Cardinals, archbishops, and bishops…” Windswept House: A Vatican Novel, 1996, pp. 492-493
And it gets even worse, as Martin drops this bombshell: “Besides, the incidence of Satanic pedophilia – rites and practices – was already documented among certain bishops and priests as widely dispersed at Turin, in Italy, and South Carolina, in the United States. The cultic acts of Satanic pedophilia are considered by professionals to be the culmination (the highest phase) of the Fallen Archangel’s (Satan) rites.” Martin, The Keys of this Blood, p. 632
What Martin is proclaiming is that the high incidence of pedophilia among Catholic priests, bishops and cardinals is largely, if not entirely, due to ritual child molestation – part of the organized satanic initiation process of the higher levels of the Catholic priesthood.
Satan has created a system in which raping a child steals part of the youth, part of their soul. This in turn damages the child, causing them to have psychological challenges so that they struggle with their sexuality and many shun the Heavenly Father.
The popes have born false witness by proclaiming that people are heretics because they disagree with their doctrine, which breaks the ninth Commandment. Devout followers of Messiah who revered Scripture alone and not man-made traditions, witnessed against the antichrist beast pope and their harlot church, and were burned at the stake for their testimony.
Not only have the popes caused others to sin, but many have been the chief of sinners themselves.
Keep in mind that the popes have done all of this in the name of Jesus Christ.
Sergius III (904-911) – He came to power after murdering his predecessor. He was known by his cardinals as ‘the slave of every vice.’ He had a son with his teenage mistress who was thirty years his junior and their illegitimate son grew up to become the next pope.
John XII (955-964) – He took the throne at age 18 and soon transformed his residence into a brothel. Going further down the rabbit hole, he took part in murdering, invoking demons, and even having sexual relations with his sisters. Described by a church historian as ‘the very dregs,’ he was killed at age 27 when a husband caught his wife in bed with John XII and beat the pope so badly, that he died three days later from his injuries.
Benedict IX (1032-48) – He continually shocked even his most hardened cardinals by debauching young boys in the Lateran Palace. He stole, murdered and committed other ‘unspeakable deeds’ throughout the city. Saint Peter Damian said he was a ‘wretch who feasted on immorality, a demon from hell in the disguise of a priest.’ Benedict was described by a 11th century pope as having a life ‘so vile, so foul, so execrable, that I shudder to think of it.’
Boniface VIII (1294-1303) – He indulged in menages with a married woman and her daughter and became renowned through Rome as a shameless pedophile. A famous and horrifying quote of his was that having sex with young boys was no more problematic than rubbing one hand against the other.
John XXIII (1410-1415) – Thirty-seven of his own clergy witnessed against him on charges of fornication, adultery, incest, sodomy, simony, theft, and murder. After a brief trail he was found guilty and imprisoned. He also had a harem of mistresses in Boulogne numbering 200 consisting mostly, if not entirely of nuns.
Sixtus IV (1471-84) – He is primarily remembered for commissioning the Sistine Chapel, but he was also known to have a large sexual appetite during his time as pope. He had six illegitimate children, with one a result of incest with his sister. Despite his sexual indulgences, he was quite the hypocrite and strictly policed others. He created a tax on prostitutes and charging priests who had mistresses.
Alexander VI (1492-1503) – Before becoming pope, he was a member of Borgias, the Italian crime family, and his attitude did not change after becoming pope. During his time, multiple conspiracies and dishonesty surrounded him and his decisions. He fathered at least nine children that we know of and was famous for hosting a series of orgies throughout his reign. Even worse, there were multiple reports that he engaged in incest with his daughter, Lucrezia. If any one ever surpassed him in all kind of abominations and crimes, it was his bastard son Caesar Borgia.
Innocent VIII (1484-92) – Contrary to his name, his rule is remembered as the Golden Age of Bastards, as he acknowledged eight illegitimate sons and was known to have many more. Before his open admission, these bastards were simply known as the Pope’s ‘nephews.’
Julius II (1504-13) – He was known for being domineering, hot-headed, and a manic at times. But by far his worst feature was his severe case of Syphilis, contracting it via male prostitutes. It was documented that on Good Friday, his feet were so covered by sores that no one was able to kiss them.
Leo X (1513-1521) – He is famous for his lavish spending during his reign, becoming a patron of the arts who commissioned the rebuilding of St. Peter’s Basilica. He raised funds for these endeavors by selling ‘indulgences’ to Catholics as a pardon from hell for sins such as murder, polygamy, sacrilege, perjury and witchcraft. He proclaimed at a large banquet of dignitaries, “How well we know what a profitable superstition this fable of Christ has been for us and our predecessors.”
The new pope, Adrian VI, hardly eulogized Leo X when confessing to the Diet of Nuremberg that “for many years, abominable things have taken place in the Chair of Peter, abuses in spiritual matters, transgressions of the Commandments, so that everything here has been wickedly perverted.”
I’ve listed some of the worst sinners, but there’s many more stories of sinful popes, whose bad fruit reveals their wicked nature.
Here are quotes from whole church bodies in the 16th century, which proclaim the truth about the evil ways of the son of perdition popes.
The Church of Scotland Confession of Faith declared, ‘There is no other Head of the Church than the Lord Jesus Christ, nor can the Pope of Rome be in any sense the Head thereof ; but is that antichrist, that man of sin and son of perdition, that exalteth himself in the church against Christ, and all that is called God.’
The Articles of the Church of Ireland, drawn up in 1615, declares, “The Bishop of Rome is so far from being the Supreme Head of the Universal Church, that his works and his doctrines do plainly discover him to be that “Man of Sin” foretold in the Holy Scriptures, whom the Lord shall consume with the Spirit of His mouth, and abolish with the brightness of His coming.”
The London Baptist Confession of 1689, proclaims, “The Lord Jesus Christ is the Head of the church, in whom, by the appointment of the Father, all power for the calling, institution, order or government of the church, is invested in a supreme and sovereign manner; neither can the Pope of Rome in any sense be head thereof, but is that antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalteth himself in the church against Christ, and all that is called God; whom the Lord shall destroy with the brightness of his coming.”
Westminster Confession of Faith declares, “There is no other head of the church but the Lord Jesus Christ, nor can the Pope of Rome in any sense be head thereof, but is that antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalteth himself in the church against Christ, and all that is called God.” This confession was ratified and established by Act of Parliament in 1649.
Dr. Henry Grattan Guinness, a preacher, evangelist and writer proclaimed this about the popes and their church:
“The rule of Rome revived in a new form, and was as real under the popes of the thirteenth century as it had been under the Caesars of the first. It was as oppressive, cruel, and bloody under Innocent III. as it had been under Nero and Domitian. The reality was the same, though the forms had changed. The Caesars did not persecute the witnesses of Jesus more severely and bitterly than did the popes; Diocletian did not destroy the saints or oppose the gospel more than did the Inquisition of Papal days.
Rome is one and the same all through, both locally and morally. One dreadful wild beast represents her, though the symbol, like the history it prefigures, has two parts. There was the undivided stage, and there has been the tenfold stage. The one is Rome pagan, the other Rome Papal; the one is the old empire, the other the modern pontificate; the one is the empire of the Caesars , the other is the Roman Papacy”
You shrink from it, do you? I accept it. Conscience constrains me. History compels me. The past, the awful past rises before me. I see THE GREAT APOSTASY, I see the desolation of Christendom, I see the smoking ruins, I see the reign of monsters; I see those vicegods, that Gregory VIII, that Innocent III, that Boniface VIII, that Alexander VI, that Gregory XIII, that Pius IX; I see their long succession, I see their abominable lives; I see them worshipped by blinded generations, bestowing hollow benedictions, bartering lying indulgences, creating a paganized Christianity;! see their liveried slaves, their shaven priests, their celibate confessors; I see the infamous confessional, the ruined women, the murdered innocents; I hear the lying absolutions, the dying groans; I hear the cries of the victims; I hear the anathemas, the curses, the thunders of the interdicts; I see the racks, the dungeons, the stakes; I see that inhuman Inquisition, those fires of Smithfield, those butcheries of St. Bartholomew, that Spanish Armada, those unspeakable massacres.
I see it all, and in the name of the ruin it has wrought in the Church and in the world, in the name of the truth it has denied, the temple it has defiled, the God it has blasphemed, the souls it has destroyed; in the name of the millions it has deluded, the millions it has slaughtered, the millions it has damned; with holy confessors, with noble reformers, with innumerable martyrs, with the saints of ages, I denounce it as the masterpiece of Satan as the body and soul and essence of antichrist”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), was a strong figure in the Reformed Baptist tradition, proclaimed this about the Popes and their church:
“Her idolatries are the scorn of reason and the abhorrence of faith! The iniquities of her practice and the enormities of her doctrine almost surpass belief! Popery is as much the masterpiece of Satan as the Gospel is the masterpiece of God! There can scarcely be imagined anything of devilish craftiness or Satanic wickedness which could be compared with her—she is unparalleled as the queen of iniquity.
Behold upon her forehead the name, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. The Church of Rome and her teachings are a vast mountain of rubbish covering the Truth of God! For weary years good men could not get at the Foundation because of this very much rubbish.
It is the bounden duty of every Christian to pray against Antichrist, and as to what Antichrist is no sane man ought to raise a question. If it be not the popery in the Church of Rome there is nothing in the world that can be called by that name. If there were to be issued a hue and cry for Antichrist, we should certainly take up this church on suspicion, and it would certainly not be let loose again, for it so exactly answers the description.
Popery is contrary to Christ’s Gospel, and is the Antichrist, and we ought to pray against it. It should be the daily prayer of every believer that Antichrist might be hurled like a millstone into the flood and for Christ, because it wounds Christ, because it robs Christ of His glory, because it puts sacramental efficacy in the place of His atonement, and lifts a piece of bread into the place of the Saviour, and a few drops of water into the place of the Holy Ghost, and puts a mere fallible man like ourselves up as the vicar of Christ on earth; if we pray against it, because it is against Him, we shall love the persons though we hate their errors: we shall love their souls though we loath and detest their dogmas, and so the breath of our prayers will be sweetened, because we turn our faces towards Christ when we pray.” (Michael de Semlyen, All Roads Lead to Rome)
In a sermon titled “War, War, War,” Spurgeon said;
“I am ashamed that sons of the Reformers should bow themselves before the beast, and give so much as a single farthing to the shrine of the devil’s firstborn son. Take heed to yourselves, ye Protestants, lest ye be partakers of her plagues; touch her not, lest ye be defiled. Give a drachma to her, or a grain of incense to her censors, ye shall be partakers of her adulteries and partakers of her plagues. Every time you pass the house of Popery let a curse light upon her head: Thus saith the Lord:—‘Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
These are battles with sin, and battles with false doctrines, and battles with war. Fight these battles Christian and you will have enough to do. We must have no truce, no treaty with Rome. War! War! War! with her! There cannot be peace. She cannot have peace with us – we cannot have peace with her. She hates the true Church, and we can only say that the hatred is reciprocated. We would not lay a hand on her priests; we would not touch a hair of their heads. Let them be free; but we will attempt to destroy their doctrine from the face of the earth because it is the doctrine of demons. O God, let the Roman Catholic Church perish, let it be consumed in the smoke.“
Is it possible for any other man to cause more sin in the name of Messiah? No, I don’t think so!
Who fulfills the role of the antichrist in John’s epistles?
1 John 2:18-23, 1 John 4:2-3 and 2 John 1:7 mention the antichrist. The main focus is that an antichrist denies the Heavenly Father and Messiah, with emphasis on denying that Messiah came in the flesh.
The popes teach a false gospel of works through the sacraments, which denies the pure Gospel that salvation is through faith in Messiah’s atoning work alone.
The Roman Catholic Church declared at the Council of Trent (Canon 9), “If anyone says that the sinner is justified by faith alone, meaning that nothing else is required to cooperate in order to obtain the grace of justification, and that it is not in any way necessary that he be prepared and disposed by the action of his own will, let him be anathema (damned to hell).”
Pope Pius XII said, “…recognize the Holy, Catholic, Roman Church to be the only true Church of Jesus Christ, outside of which neither sanctity nor salvation can be found. Call them to the unity of the one fold, granting them the grace to believe every truth of our holy faith and to submit themselves to the Supreme Roman Pontiff, the Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth.” (Pope Pius XII : The Raccolta, Benzinger Brothers, Boston, 1957 A.D., No. 626.)
The popes deny that Messiah came in the flesh, because they teach that Mary was born without a sin nature, nor did she sin during her life. If Messiah didn’t have a human, sinful nature, then it negates His fulfillment of the law without sin. And if Mary didn’t sin, it denies that Messiah is the only sinless One.
Pope John Paul II said, “The truth of the Assumption, defined by Pius XII, is reaffirmed by the Second Vatican Council, which thus expresses the Church’s faith: “Preserved free from all guilt of original sin, the Immaculate Virgin was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory upon the completion of her earthly sojourn. She was exalted by the Lord as Queen of the Universe…For the Mother of Christ is glorified as ‘Queen of the Universe‘.” (Pope John Paul II: Redemptoris Mater (On the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Life of the Pilgrim Church)
The popes deny Messiah by teaching that Mary is the mediator to the Father. This denies Messiah His rightful place as the one Intercessor to the Father, who earned that title by coming in the flesh and living a sinless life.
Pope Leo XIII said, “O Holy Mother of God; to thee we lift our prayers for thou, powerful and merciful, art the Mediatrix of our salvation.” (Pope Leo XIII: Encycl., Jucunda semper, September 8, 1894.) — [p. 19, no. 43]
Pope Leo XIII said, “With equal truth it may be said that of the great treasury of all graces given to us by Our Lord—for grace and truth came by Jesus Christ—nothing comes to us except through Mary’s mediation, for such is God’s Will. Thus, as no man goes to the Father but by the Son, so no one goes to Christ except through his mother.” (Pope Leo XIII: Encycl., Octobri mense, September 22, 1891.) — [pp. 13,14, no. 19]
The popes deny Messiah by teaching that Mary is the co-redeemer of the saints. This denies that the Heavenly Father redeems the set-apart saints through His Son alone.
Pius IX said, “God has committed to the Blessed Virgin Mary the treasury of all good things in order that everyone may know that through her are obtained every hope, every grace and all salvation.” (Pius IX: Encycl., Ubi primum, February 2, 1894) — [p. 18, no. 38]
Pope Benedict XV declared, “To such extent did Mary suffer and almost die with her suffering and dying Son; to such extent did she surrender her maternal rights over her Son for: man’s salvation . . that we may rightly say she redeemed the human race together with Christ.” (Pope Benedict XV : Inter Sodalicia, 1918)
Pope Leo XIII said, “O Virgin most holy, none abounds in the knowledge of God except through thee; none, O Mother of God, obtains salvation except through thee, none receives a gift from the throne of mercy except through thee.” (Pope Leo XIII: Encycl., Adiutricem populi, September 5, 1895.) — [p. 12, no. 13]
The popes deny Messiah by proclaiming to be the high priest of His Church. This denies that Messiah is our High Priest who ministers in the heavenly temple for us.
The New York Catechism says, “The Pope takes the place of Jesus Christ on earth…by divine right the Pope has supreme and full power in faith, in morals over each and every pastor and his flock. He is the true vicar, the head of the entire church, the father and teacher of all Christians. He is the infallible ruler, the founder of dogmas, the author of and the judge of councils; the universal ruler of truth, the arbiter of the world, the supreme judge of heaven and earth, the judge of all, being judged by no one, God himself on earth.”
Pope John Paul II said, “Have no fear when people call me the “Vicar of Christ,” when they say to me “Holy Father,” or “Your Holiness,” or use titles similar to these, which seem even inimical to the Gospel.” Pope John Paul II, Crossing the Threshold of Hope (New York: Alfred A. Knoff. 1995): 6
The popes have denied Messiah by proclaiming that salvation is through their Roman Catholic Church alone and no other way. And now they teach that all religions lead to the same God. This denies the Father and the Son.
The popes deny Messiah’s one-time blood sacrifice for all sins, by symbolically sacrificing Him over and over during their blasphemous Eucharist ceremony. They proclaim to pull Him down from heaven to sacrifice Him in an unbloody sacrifice, which denies Messiah’s one-time atonement for sin as our High Priest in the flesh. They proclaim that the bread and wine are his real body which is sacrificed again for sins. This heretical act is played out in Catholic churches around the world many times a week.
The popes have proclaimed that they can forgive sins and provide salvation. This is blasphemy and it denies that salvation is through faith in Messiah alone.
The Zucchetti cap is worn by Catholic priests, which represents respect, fear and submission to Cybele, the Mother Goddess of Rome. The most senior god was was Ashtoreth the goddess of fertility, sexuality and war. Her most famous temples were on Cyprus as Aphrodite and in Rome on Vatican Hill as Cybele. The Cap of Cybele is one of the oldest and most sacred pagan religious symbols of humanity, dating back to 2,000 BC. The skull cap was worn by the sun priests of Egypt.
The Bible declares “For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 11:7
The Zucchetti symbolically denies Messiah as their head, their leader. “But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head (which is Christ).” 1 Corinthians 11:3-4
Interestingly, the Vatican is built over the catacombs of the largest ancient temple to Cybele. Ashtoreth the goddess of fertility, sexuality and war; was known as Cybele in Rome. Human sacrifices were made to Cybele in the temple and probably continue to this day.
The design of the Baldacchino in St. Peter’s Basilica by Gian Lorenzo Bernini in 1623 was said to have been inspired by the design of the structure which covered the statue of Cybele. Once again we see that the focus of the popes is on the worship of the Queen of Heaven, Cybele.
The popes deny the Heavenly Father by proclaiming to be God, forgive sins, and provide salvation, which is blasphemy. Salvation is through faith in Messiah’s atoning work.
Is it possible for any other man to more emphatically deny Messiahs atoning work in the flesh? No, I don’t think so!
Who fulfills the role of the beast in Revelation?
Let’s start with the definition of a beast in the New Testament.
Some historicists proclaim that a beast always points to a kingdom, which causes them to error when they explain the sea beast and earth beast of Revelation 13. But passages in the New Testament define a beast very differently.
In Titus 1:7-16, we see Paul contrasting blameless bishops with unruly vain-talking, deceiving, evil beasts; whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
In 2 Peter 2, we see Peter talking about false prophets, saying that they are evil speaking brute beasts; who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, and through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you, they speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption, having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
Jude 1 also points to ungodly men, brute beasts, creeping into the church; ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ; they are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.
Paul, Peter, Jude and John all point to false prophets, corrupt bishops, who speak evil things, blaspheme and pervert the Gospel; who are called beasts.
By that we can understand that the sea beast of Revelation 13 is fulfilled by the popes of Rome, who have ruled over a sea of people, billions of Catholics around the world.
And we can see that the end-times earth beast phase of the Roman beast kingdom is led by the false prophet, the Jesuit Superior General, the black pope, who is another corrupt bishop who rose to power out of the land, the earth of the Vatican.
Revelation 13:11 tells us that the end-times phase of the Roman beast kingdom is led by two horns, two leaders; the false prophet Jesuit Superior General and the antichrist beast Pope. They are like a lamb as they pretend to be priests of Messiah, but they speak as a dragon because they serve Satan to make war against Messiah and His saints.
We see these two leaders again in the sixth vial of Revelation 16 and in Revelation 19 when they are effectively captured.
Who fulfills the role of the antichrist beast in Revelation?
Let’s look at the definition of antichrist.
It means two things; one who proclaims to replace Christ, a substitute Christ; and one who is against Christ.
The popes of Rome proclaim to be Christ on earth, to be the high priest of Messiah’s one-true church; thus they proclaim to replace Messiah. They’ve taken the title of the ‘Vicar of Christ’ which means ‘substitute Christ.’
Vicarius Filii Dei means ‘Vicar of the Son of God’ as they proclaim to take the place of Messiah. The popes title equates to 666 in Latin.
The popes of Rome teach doctrine such as a false gospel and that Mary is the intercessor to the Father, which is against Messiah. They caused tens of millions of saints to be killed, thus they are against Messiah.
By that we see that the office of the papacy, the popes of Rome, fulfill both definitions of antichrist.
As the antichrist beast popes power over the nations increased, they became more bold in declaring their doctrine.
This caused those who revere Scripture alone to witness against the popes and the doctrine of their church, to expose their rotten fruit.
Arnulf (991), the Bishop of Orleans, proclaimed the Pope as the Antichrist, sitting in the temple of God, and showing himself as God.
He “deplored the roman popes as “monsters of guilt” and declared in a council called by the King of France in 991 A.D. that the pontiff, clad in purple and gold, was, “Antichrist, sitting in the temple of God, and showing himself as God.” (Phillip Schaff, History of the Christian church, 8 vols., reprint of the 3d (1910)ed. (Grand Rapids Mich.: Wm. B Eerdmans Publishing Co., n.d.)
Eberhard II (1240), archbishop of Salzburg, affirmed that the Pope was the antichrist.
“Stated at a synod of bishops held at Regensburg in 1240 that the people of his day were “accustomed” to calling the pope antichrist.” (LeRoy Edwin Froom, The Prophetic Faith of our Fathers)
The Waldenses called the Roman Church the harlot of Babylon, and the Papacy, the “man of sin” and “antichrist”.
Peter Waldo (1140-1218) was a rich merchant of Lyons, France, who gave up everything to preach the Gospel. Waldo’s followers called themselves “the Poor in Spirit“. The Waldensians were orthodox in their beliefs, but they were outside of the organizational structure of the Roman Catholic Church. They traveled in pairs, preaching the Gospel. They were humble people who believed in “apostolic poverty”. They were barefoot, owning nothing, and they shared all things in common.
That was the faith and confession of the Waldenses, for which they were killed by the Papal Church.
“Whereupon we, with all our posterity, have to understand what be the reasons and arguments wherewith the antichrist of Rome is wont to uphold the impious seat of his abomination; who now is come to such excess and profundity of all kinds of iniquity, that all justice, equity, and verity being set aside, he seeketh the defence of his cause by no other thing than only by force and violence, terror and oppression, and shedding of blood.” Foxes Book of Martyrs: The Waldensian martyrs in Provence
“For who would ever have judged or suspected in his mind, that the bishop of Rome (commonly received, and believed, almost of all men, to be the vicar and vicegerent of Christ here in earth) to be antichrist, and the great adversary of God, whom St. Paul so expressly prophesieth of, in these latter days to be revealed by the brightness of the Lord’s coming, as all men now, for the most part, may see it is come to pass?” Foxes Book of Martyrs: The Waldensian martyrs of Peidmont
Michal of Cesena (1270-1342) who came out of the Franciscan Order of the Catholic Church declared the pope:
“to be Antichrist, and the church of Rome to be the whore of Babylon, drunk with the blood of the saints.” Foxes Book of Martyrs, op cit., p. 445
John Wycliffe, called the Morning Star of the Reformation, spent most of his life teaching at Oxford University. He translated the Latin Vulgate Bible into English and placed it in the hands of the people. Wycliffe said of the Pope:
“When the western church was divided for about 40 years between two rival popes, one in Rome and the other in Avigon, France, each pope called the other pope antichrist – and John Wycliffe is reputed to have regarded them as both being right: “two halves of Antichrist, making up the perfect Man of Sin between them.”
“We suppose that Antichrist, the head of all these evil men, is the pope of Rome.” (Ibid, p. 90)
Matthias of Janow was a fourteenth-century Bohemian ecclesiastical writer. Matthias came to be known as the Bohemian Wycliffe. His writings paved the way for the Hussite movement. Here is one of his statements:
“The Antichrist has already come. He is neither Jew, pagan Saracean nor worldly tyrant, but the ‘man who opposes Christian truth and the Christian life by way of deception;—he is, and will be, the most wicked Christian, falsely styling himself by that name, assuming the highest station in the church, and possessing the highest consideration, arrogating dominion over all ecclesiastics and laymen;’ one who, by the working of Satan, assumes to himself power and wealth and honor, and makes the church, with its goods and sacraments, subservient to his own carnal ends.” Froom, PFF, volume 2, p. 40.
Sir John Oldcastle (1378-1417) who was also known as Lord Cobham, was an English Lollard leader and a prominent follower of Wycliffe. He unequivocally stated:
“But as touching the Pope and his Spirituality, I owe them neither suit nor service, for so much as I know him by the Scriptures to be the great Antichrist, the Son of Perdition, the open Adversary of God, and the Abomination standing in the holy place.” (Froom, PFF, volume 2, p. 88.)
John Huss (a.k.a. Jan Huss, 1372-1415) was a well-educated man from Bohemia, who came under the influence of Wycliffe’s writings, which caused him to break with the church of Rome.
A reformation sprang up in Southern Bohemia, a province in NW Africa, more than a century before the time of Luther, and was quenched in seas of blood as the pope’s persecuted them. What gave rise to it? The testimonies of John Huss and Jerome of Prague. His followers became known as Hussites.
He referred to the antichrist as the enemy of the Church – not as a Jew, a pagan, or a Turk(Muslim) – but as a false confessor of the name of Christ.
“Surely even at this day is the malice, the abomination, and filthiness of ANTICHRIST revealed in the pope...”
“The Pope is … the true Antichrist, of whom it is written, that he sitteth in the temple of God, among the people where Christ is worshiped…”
“I trust in God that He will send after me those that shall be more valiant; and there are alive at this day that shall make more manifest the malice of ANTICHRIST, and shall give their lives to the death for the truth of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Is it possible for any other man to fulfill the role of the antichrist beast of Revelation? No, I don’t think so!
Who fulfills the role of the false prophet in Revelation?
The false prophet is a fake priest who pretends to serve Messiah, but teaches false doctrine which is contrary to Messiah and the Scriptures.
Like the antichrist beast popes who preceded him, he is another unruly, vain-talking deceiver. To differentiate him from the beast of Revelation, John calls him the false prophet.
Ignatius Loyola founded the Jesuits in the 16th century and the Pope empowered the so-called ‘Society of Jesus’ to counter the reformation. In the name of Jesus, Jesuit priests tortured and killed Messiah’s saints.
Here’s a Vatican graven image of Loyola holding the Jesuit Constitutions, and he’s depicted stepping on a saint who is holding the Scriptures. This shows their mission, to counter Messiah’s Word and His saints, which testify about the Scriptural Gospel and witness against the Pope.
The false prophet Jesuit Superior General has sent priests around the world to teach a false gospel and false Messiah. The Jesuit priests act lamb-like, but spread around the world teaching a false salvation message of following the seven sacraments through the Papal Church and that Mary is the intercessor to the Heavenly Father.
Over the past century, the number of Catholics worldwide has more than quadrupled, from an estimated 291 million in 1910 to nearly 1.2 billion as of 2010, according to a comprehensive demographic study by the Pew Research Center.
The Sub-Sahara had 1.2 million in 1910, and now there are 171 million in 2010. Latin America-Caribbean had 70.6 million in 1910, and now there are 426.5 million in 2010. Asia-Pacific had 13.9 million in 1910, and now there are 130.5 million in 2010.
That’s a staggering growth rate of Catholics who revere/worship (mark on the forehead) and obey (mark on the right hand, actions) the antichrist beast pope. This is why the black pope is called the false prophet.
The Jesuits are the source of false prophecy teaching of a future 70th week of Daniel featuring a one-man antichrist, and a futuristic fulfillment of Revelation; which serves to deflect blame away from the antichrist beast pope.
They had Jesuit Priest Francisco Ribera, a brilliant man with a doctorate in theology, write a 500 page commentary with an opposing view, where he manipulated prophecies in the books of Daniel and Revelation, to create an end-time 7-year tribulation antichrist. He applied all of Revelation to the end time rather than to the history of the church.
His explanation was that the prophecies apply only to a single sinister man who will arise up at the end of time; instead of the office of the papacy. He said that the antichrist would be an infidel from outside the church of God; instead of someone who presents himself as Christ (the pope, who calls himself the Vicar of Christ).
He said that the antichrist would make a 7-year peace agreement with the Jews, which is based on a corruption of the 70th week of Daniel 9 prophecy. This concept was rejected for centuries, but sadly, during the last century it has become widely accepted due to the influence of the Society of Satan in Rome.
In 1812 AD, a Jesuit priest named Manuel de Lacunza published the work ‘The Coming of Messiah in Glory and Majesty‘ under the pen name of ‘Juan Josafat Ben-Ezra’, a converted Jew.
The pseudonym may be seen as a way of making the futuristic teachings of Jesuit Priest Francisco Ribera acceptable to believers and diverting attention from the station of the author, as the Inquisition clearly taught the saints that the Jesuits were the enemy.
The Jesuits are the source of false prophecy teaching of preterism, which says that Nero was the antichrist and that the prophecies in Revelation were fulfilled in the first few centuries.
Jesuit Luis De Alcazar published a book called ‘Investigation of the Hidden Sense of the Apocalypse‘ in 1614 AD, which assigns the fulfillment of the prophecies in Revelation to the first few centuries. He devoted himself to bring into prominence the preterist method of interpretation to show the prophecies of antichrist were fulfilled before the Popes ever ruled at Rome, and therefore could not apply to the Papacy.
The Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, which is based on words in the KJV Bible, makes these definitions:
JESUIT, One of the society of Jesus, so called, founded by Ignatius Loyola; a society remarkable for their cunning in propagating their principles.
JES’UITISM, n. The arts, principles and practices of the Jesuits. Cunning, deceit; hypocrisy; prevarication (to speak falsely); deceptive practices to effect a purpose.
The Jesuit Order is a military organization. They infiltrate countries under the guise of being priests, but they work to gather intelligence through the confessions of the leaders of countries. Then they use the intel to find corrupt people that they can use and to blackmail people into carrying out their orders, to take control of countries.
They call themselves the Society of Jesus and on the surface they appear to be priests who spread around the world ministering, but behind the scenes they serve Satan and they subversively do his work. They are lamb-like in pretensions, but dragon-like in character. Here is part of the Jesuit Oath which testifies to their wicked mission:
“I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth.
I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus.”
After the Scriptures were translated into the common languages and with the timely advent of the printing press, the Jesuits couldn’t stop the Bible from being spread around the world. So they used heretics Brooke Foss Westcott and Fenton John Anthony Hort, who didn’t believe in the deity of Messiah, to create a Greek New Testament in 1881, based on the corrupt Sinaiticus and Vaticanus manuscripts, which removed many words that validate Messiah’s deity.
They called the Textus Receptus ‘vile’ and refused to believe that Yah preserved His holy words. So they set out to create their own Greek text, based on their beliefs and philosophy. Their Greek New Testament has 5,337 deletions as compared to the Textus Receptus Greek. Then Westcott and Hort helped create the 1885 English Revised Version Bible, which is based on their corrupt Greek text.
The subsequent Nestle-Aland (NA) and the United Bible Societies (UBS) Greek New Testaments are based on the corrupt Westcott-Hort Greek Text. They are the basis for nearly every modern Bible translation, including the NIV and ESV. The NIV has 64,576 fewer words than the King James.
In the name of Jesus Christ, the Jesuit Superior General has created corrupt Bibles which remove some proofs of Messiah’s deity. This is the work of the false prophet.
The Jesuits were kicked out of many countries because of their subversive ways, even out of predominantly Catholic ones.
Between 1555 and 1931 the Jesuit priests were expelled from at least 83 countries, city states and cities, for engaging in political intrigue and subversion plots against the welfare of the State, according to the records of a Jesuit priest of repute [Thomas J. Campbell] “Practically every instance of expulsion was for political intrigue, political infiltration, political subversion, and inciting to political insurrection.” (1987) – J.E.C. Shepherd (Canadian historian)
They were so wicked that Pope Clement XIV removed their power and authority in 1773 AD. He charged them with idolatrous ceremonies, scandalous maxims, contrary to good morals, producing dangerous seditions, tumults, discords, scandals, which weakened or entirely broke the bonds of Christian charity. For these and other reasons stated, he decreed the eternal suppression and annihilation of the ‘Company of Jesus,’ not to be rescinded in aftertime by any one or upon any grounds. (Clement’s brief 1773).
Pope Clement XIV declared that with his decree “I have signed my death warrant.” Within nine months he was dead from suspected poisoning by the Jesuits.
Here are some quotes about the wickedness of the Society of Jesus:
Friedrich von Hardenberg (German philosopher) said:
“Never before in the course of the world’s history had such a Society [i.e., the Jesuit Order] appeared. The old Roman Senate itself did not lay schemes for world domination with greater certainty of success.”
President John Adams said:
“My history of the Jesuits is not eloquently written, but it is supported by unquestionable authorities, [and] is very particular and very horrible. Their [the Jesuit Order’s] restoration [in 1814 by Pope Pius VII] is indeed a step toward darkness, cruelty, despotism, [and] death. … I do not like the appearance of the Jesuits. If ever there was a body of men who merited eternal damnation on earth and in hell, it is this Society of [Ignatius de] Loyola.”
President Thomas Jefferson said:
“I do not like the late Resurrection of the Jesuits. They have a General, now in Russia, in correspondence with Jesuits in the U.S. who are more numerous than everybody knows. Shall We not have Swarms of them here? In as many shapes and disguises as ever…. In the shape of printers, Editors, Writers, School masters, etc. If ever any Congregation of men could merit, eternal Perdition on Earth and in Hell… it is this Company of Loyola.”
“This irritable tribe of priests, have subverted the pure morality of primitive Christianity to serve their own selfish interests.” The Jesuits have “perverted” Christianity “into an engine for enslaving mankind, a mere contrivance to fetch wealth and power to themselves.”
Marquis de LaFayette (1757-1834) who served in the American Continental Army under the command of General George Washington during the American Revolutionary War, said:
“It is my opinion that if the liberties of this country – the United States of America – are destroyed, it will be by the subtlety of the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests, for they are the most crafty, dangerous enemies to civil and religious liberty. They have instigated most of the wars of Europe.”
Bishop Strossmayer, at the 1869 Ecumenical Council in Rome, said:
“My brethren, consider the dangers to which the church must be subject when it takes its teachings from the Jesuits, as their doctrines are in contradiction to history, to the fathers of the church, to the Word of God, to everything, in short, that is held most sacred by true Christians.”
Samuel Morse (1791-1872) American inventor of the telegraph; author of the book Foreign Conspiracy Against the Liberties of the United States, said:
“The Jesuits…are a secret society – a sort of Masonic order – with super-added features of revolting odiousness, and a thousand times more dangerous.”
President Abraham Lincoln said:
“I feel more and more every day that it is not against the Americans of the South along that I am fighting; it is more against the Pope of Rome, his perfidious Jesuits and their blind and bloodthirsty slaves.”
“The true motive power [of the civil war] is secreted behind the thick walls of the Vatican, the colleges and schools of the Jesuits…They have continued in a silent, but most efficacious way, to spread their hatred against our institutions, our laws… and our liberties in such a way that this terrible conflict became unavoidable between the North and South… it is Popery that we owe this terrible civil war… I would have laughed at the man who would have told me that before I became President. But Professor Morse has opened my eyes on that subject… Our people are yet ready to learn and believe those things, and perhaps it is not the proper time to initiate them into the dark mysteries of hell… Sooner or later the nation will know…And then those who have caused those desolations and disasters will be called to give an account.” ~Abraham Lincoln Chiniquy, Fifty Years in the Church of Rome, pp. 294-297, 306, 715 of 1883 edition.
“If the American people could learn what I know of the fierce hatred of the priests or Rome against our institutions, our schools, our most sacred rights, and our so dearly bought liberties, they would drive them out as traitors.”
R. W. Thompson, Ex-Secretary of the American Navy said:
“[The Jesuits] are the deadly enemies of civil and religious liberty.”
Napoleon Bonaparte; 1769-1821; emperor of the French, said:
“The Jesuits are a MILITARY organization, not a religious order. Their chief is a general of an army, not the mere father abbot of a monastery. And the aim of this organization is power – power in its most despotic exercise – absolute power, universal power, power to control the world by the volition of a single man [i.e., the Black Pope, the Superior General of the Jesuits]. Jesuitism is the most absolute of despotisms [sic] – and at the same time the greatest and most enormous of abuse.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821-1881), a famous Russian novelist, said:
“The Jesuits…are simply the Romish army for the earthly sovereignty of the world in the future, with the Pontiff of Rome for emperor…that’s their ideal. …It is simple lust of power, of filthy earthly gain, of domination – something like a universal serfdom with them [i.e., the Jesuits] as masters – that’s all they stand for. They don’t even believe in God perhaps.”
Robert Jefferson Breckinridge (1800 – 1871), a politician and Presbyterian minister, said:
“The Society of Jesus [i.e., the Jesuit Order] is the enemy of man. The whole human race should unite for its overthrow. …For there is no alternative between its total extirpation, and the absolute corruption and degradation of mankind.”
James Parton, an American historian, said:
“If you trace up Masonry, through all its Orders, till you come to the grand tip-top head Mason of the World, you will discover that the dread individual and the Chief of the Society of Jesus [i.e., the Superior General of the Jesuit Order] are one and the same person.”
In the name of Jesus Christ, the Society of Jesus has born rotten fruit which has been condemned by world leaders, some who were Catholic.
Many books have been written which document the evil ways of the Jesuits, though they’ve been suppressed: A few titles are: Engineer Corps of Hell by Edwin A. Sherman. The Secret History Of The Jesuits – Edmond Paris. Rulers of Evil : Useful Knowledge about Governing Bodies – F. Tupper Saussy. Codeword Barbelon – Danger in the Vatican: The Sons of Loyola and Their Plans for World Domination and Codeword Barbelon – Book 2: Anti-Christ is a Woman – Alive and Well, Again! by P.D. Stuart
Is it possible for any other man to fulfill the role of the false prophet of Revelation? No, I don’t think so!
Who fulfills the role of the harlot church of Revelation 17?
Scripture defines a harlot as a people group who proclaim to serve the Heavenly Father, but are worshipers of pagan gods.
Note: Secret societies have two doctrines; one concealed and reserved from the masters, and the other public. They use symbols which have a hidden meaning to the masters, and an innocent-sounding narrative to the public. You’ll see that played out in the Roman Catholic Church.
The pope’s primary basilica, St. Peter’s, has an Egyptian obelisk in a sun wheel in front of it, which designates the basilica as a temple of the sun god.
Why would a church of Messiah have a pagan god phallic symbol in front of their primary temple?
On the spring equinox, the rising sun strikes the sun god phallic symbol and causes the shadow to fall on the dome of the basilica which represents the womb of the moon goddess.
This represents their annual sexual union and nine months later they celebrate the birth of their incarnate christ-child Tammuz. The Popes promote Easter, which is based on the fertility goddess Ishtar, which is why there are rabbits and eggs associated with the celebration. Scripture points to Messiah dying on Passover, which is not the same thing as Easter.
Then nine months after the symbolic sex of the sun god and moon goddess, the Popes promote Christ-mass, the birth of their pagan sun god Tammuz. Scripture shows that Messiah was born in the fall, most likely on the Feast of Tabernacles, as He came to dwell among us.
Inside of St. Peter’s Basilica is this enormous sun symbol, which is located behind the massive throne.
The graven images in St. Peter’s Basilica are pagan gods which have been given ‘Christian’ names. Mary is Semiramis and her incarnate christ-child Tammuz in the Babylonian Mystery Religion.
Mary is really Semiramis the Queen of Heaven, the moon goddess of the Babylonian Mystery Religion, who was known as Ishtar in Egypt.
The popes disguise the pagan Queen of Heaven by calling her Mary. Jeremiah 7:18 points to her, “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.”
A Google search of the phrase ‘catholic mary crescent moon‘ shows the many images of Mary the Queen of Heaven above a crescent moon.
The Roman Catholic Church is obsessed with the Queen of Heaven, Mary, as prayers are made to her, events celebrate her, art and jewelry are made of her, many basilicas and parishes are named after her, and graven images of her are in Catholic churches and homes.
Yet, Peter their proclaimed first Catholic pope did not mention her.
The Vatican is filled with the statues of pagan gods.
The supposed statue of Peter is really the pagan god Jupiter who has a sun wheel above his head. The right foot of the statue has been replaced several times because it’s worn down from the many touches and kisses of Catholics.
A Google search of the phrase ‘Vatican statues‘ and ‘Vatican art‘ shows you images of naked men, women and boys; the pagan gods Hercules, Perseus with the head of Medusa, Zeus, Mars, the River god Arno and the sun god Apollo; old man Nile, an Egyptian statue of Queen Tuya, Egyptian mummies and art, etc.
Here’s the statue of pagan goddess Artemis of Ephesus whose upper torso is covered with what was either the severed testicles of sacrificial bulls or multiple breasts.
All of these statues defy the Heavenly Father who forbid making graven images of pagan gods.
You can view the Wikipedia page that lists the Catholic basilicas, to see the many temples which have been built, which house their pagan god statues. The major basilicas of St John Lateran, St Peter’s, St Paul outside the Walls, and St Mary Major are filled with graven images.
The popes converted the Roman Pantheon, in which many pagan gods are displayed, into a Roman Catholic Church.
The Pantheon was dedicated to pan theos, meaning ‘all the gods.’
The obelisk was originally constructed by Pharaoh Ramses II for the Temple of Ra in Heliopolis. It was brought to Rome in ancient times where it was used near a shrine to the Egyptian god Isis.
When it became a Roman Catholic Church, it was dedicated to the Virgin Mary and all the martyrs. The popes placed this Egyptian obelisk in front of the Pantheon, which designates it as a sun-god temple.
Once again, we see the phallic symbol of the sun god Nimrod in front of the dome womb of the moon goddess Semiramis of the Babylonian Mystery Religion. They worship pagan gods of the Babylonian Mystery Religion.
Their blasphemous Eucharist ceremony symbolizes the Babylonian Mystery Religion as the priests revere the round sun-god wafer.
The sun-god wafer is placed in a monstrance that has sun rays emanating from it. It’s set upon on a lunette holder, which symbolizes the crescent moon of the moon goddess.
This mimics the sexual union of the sun god and moon goddess, which produces their incarnate christ child Tammuz. They do this under the guise of it representing Messiah’s communion, but it’s full of abominations and filthiness of the Pope’s fornication. This wicked symbolism is carried out several times a week in churches around the world.
Catholic priests wear a mitre which symbolizes Dagon the Babylonian fish god.
Nimrod of ancient Babylon is said to have been reincarnated into a giant fish in the sea. The ancient Babylonians worshiped Dagon, the god of agriculture, plenty (food) and good fortune.
The Babylonian priests wore a headdress that represented the worship of Cybele and Dagon. It featured an open-fish mouth on the head, with the rest of the fish body forming a cloak.
In the Roman Empire, it was worn by the head priest of Cybele (the Magna Mater) or the Great Queen Mother Goddess.
Today the Catholic Cardinals, Bishops and the Pope all wear the open fish-mouth mitre, which represents the worship of Cybele and Dagon.
The mitre hat of Dagan is always worn over the Kippa of Ashtoreth/Cybele, as you can see in the picture of Pope Francis I.
The popes are the reincarnated priests of the Babylonian Mystery Religion.
The popes use the six-sided star which is the supreme symbol of Satanic tyranny.
The hexagram has been used by people such as the pagan Babylonians, Egyptians and Assyrians, to directly or indirectly worship Satan.
Helena Blavatsky wrote that “Lucifer is the true God“, and she incorporated the hexagram in the emblem of the Theosophical Society, which she founded in 1875.
Satanists, Luciferians, astrologers and witches use it to invoke the power of demons.
The six-sided star numerically equals 666 (6 points, 6 triangles, 6-sided hexagon).
Jews pass it off as the ‘Star of David‘ but the truth is that King David never used a star, so calling it a nice sounding name hides what it really represents. King Solomon used it in witchcraft, magic and idolatrous worship to Ashtoreth and to Moloch.
Stephen accused the Jewish leaders, “And you took up the tent of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, the figures which you made” “in order to worship them.” Acts 7:43
The popes wear the Maltese Cross which represents Shamash, the god of the Sun and Justice.
In the image, an ancient Assyrian king is wearing a cross on his chest, just like the one seen on the Pope’s robe.
Shamash (Akkadian Šamaš “Sun”), was a native Mesopotamian deity and the sun god in the Akkadian, Assyrian and Babylonian pantheons.
Shamash was the god of justice in Babylonia and Assyria, corresponding to Sumerian Utu.
This cross was identified with a Sun god eight centuries before Christ and long before it was called the Maltese Cross by the Knights of Malta.
It’s also called the Iron Cross. Roman Catholic Adolph Hitler renewed use of the Iron Cross in 1939 and superimposed the Nazi swastika in its center.
The popes use pine cones which symbolize the worship of the solar god Osiris.
Pine cones represent the spiritual enlightenment of pagan gods and are associated with spiritual enlightenment by ancient Babylonians, Egyptians and Greeks. They represent the mysterious link between the physical and the spiritual worlds, which can be found in the human brain, in the pineal gland.
The pine cone staff is a symbol of the solar god Osiris and originated in Egypt where he was their messiah who died for his people and whose Mother, Isis, was worshiped as the Virgin Mother.
The Vatican also has the world’s largest pine cone that once decorated a fountain in ancient Rome next to a vast Temple of Isis.
At the Old St. Peter’s Basilica, it was dedicated to Attis, son and lover of Cybele. The Catholic Church then relocated it to what’s now called the Vatican Court of the Pigna.
The Crown of Ba’al, also known as the Papal Tiara is a three-tiered jeweled papal crown, which is designed like a pine cone, for the priests Ba’al, the leader of the Cult of Cybele.
Pope Boniface VIII commissioned a gold plated headdress in the shape of a pine cone, with an elaborate crown at its base. The pine cone is an ancient symbol of fertility and one traditionally associated with Ba’al as well as the Cult of Cybele. It’s a symbol of claimed papal supremacy since the 16th century.
Revelation 13 tells us that the antichrist beast is empowered by Satan the dragon to deceive the world.
“So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” Revelation 13:3
The Popes have images of the dragon at the Vatican, to show their allegiance.
Catholic exorcist testifies that the serpent, the devil, is protected in the Roman Church.
Emmanuel Milingo was an exorcist who wrote the book Face to Face with the Devil. He gave a speech at the Fatima 2000 International Congress on World Peace, entitled, ‘Satanists at work in the Vatican.’ To an audience of Catholic bishops, priests, nuns, and laity, he said, “The Devil in the Catholic Church is so protected not that he is like an animal protected by the government; put on a game preserve that outlaws anyone, especially hunters, from trying to capture or kill it. The Devil within the Church today is actually protected by certain Church authorities.”
Malachi Martin, a Catholic priest, biblical archaeologist, exorcist, palaeographer, professor, and prolific writer on the Roman Catholic Church, reportedly proclaimed: “Archbishop Milingo is a good bishop and his contention that there are Satanists in Rome is completely correct. Anybody who is acquainted with the state of affairs in the Vatican in the last thirty-five years is well aware that the prince of darkness has had and still has his surrogates in the court of St. Peter in Rome.”
They cause Catholics to make repetitive prayers during Mass and while praying the Rosary. Messiah forbid repetitive prayers, but the liturgy of Roman Catholic services is repetitive recitations. “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.” Matthew 6:7
Praying the rosary has a primary focus on Mary, asking her to be their ‘advocate’ and pray for them. Catholics repeat the Hail Mary 53 times in the Rosary. This Mary focus denies Messiah as our only Advocate to the Heavenly Father.
They cause Catholics to venerate skulls and bones in cathedrals and crypts, and to pray to dead saints.
In Deuteronomy 18:10-12, the Heavenly Father forbids using divination and necromancy of inquiring to the dead, for it’s an abomination.
Here’s Saint Munditia who is revered at the St. Peter’s Church in Munich.
Here is Saint Wenceslas skull being paraded at a basilica in Prague, for Catholics to revere.

They have Satanic processions with Catholics wearing KKK-style hoods.
Catholics dress like this during ‘Holy Week.’ A Google search of the phrase ‘catholic processions hoods‘ shows many images of hooded Catholics, which have resemblance to the garb of the KKK.
They fulfill Messiah’s warnings about priests who desire to walk in long robes.
Messiah warned in Luke 20:46-27 “Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts; Which devour widows’ houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.”
The cappa magna (literally, “great cape”), a form of mantle, is a voluminous ecclesiastical vestment with a long train, proper to Catholic cardinals, bishops, and certain other honorary prelates.
They place perverted thought into the minds of children during confession. Per former Catholic priest Charles Chiniquy in his book 50 Years In The Church of Rome, they ask children about sexual thoughts towards others, masturbation, etc., which in turn stirs up those thoughts, causing them to sin.
They forbid priests to marry, which causes many to be gay, and to rape nuns and children. Over three billion dollars has been paid out in settlements against their many victims. Priests are rarely convicted of a crime or sent to prison, but just moved to another parish to continue their wicked ways. How many boys have they sodomized in the name of Jesus, which then caused those boys to struggle with their sexuality and turn away from Christianity?
The website www.bishop-accountability.org documents the abuse crisis in the harlot Roman Catholic Church.
They enslave nuns in convents. Ex-nuns testify to the wicked ways of some convents where nuns are essentially slaves who are married to the church and have no rights. Many have been emotionally and physically abused, raped by priests, etc. Nuns are made to fear leaving, lest they be damned to hell. Here’s a link an Ex Nuns Powerful Testimony video.
Sadly, they have caused countless people to reject Messiah and the pure Gospel because they think that the actions of the Roman Catholic popes and priests represent the true faith of Scripture.
They make their church a house of merchandise, which Messiah condemned. VaticanGift.com sells pagan rosaries, saints medals, jewelry, statues and Pope Francis crucifixes.
Roman Catholic cardinals proclaim that the papal church is either the true church of Messiah or the church of Satan.
Cardinal and Archbishop of Westminster, Henry Edward Manning (1808-1892), gave this assessment of his church. “… a system like this is so unlike anything human, it has upon it notes, tokens, marks so altogether supernatural, that men now acknowledge it to be either Christ or Antichrist. There is no alternative between these extremes. The Catholic Church is either the masterpiece of Satan or the Kingdom of the Son of God.” (Henry Edward Manning, The Fourfold Sovereignty of God, 2nd ed, 1872, pp 171-172)
Manning also proclaimed, “But the Church of Jesus Christ (he is pointing to the Roman Catholic Church), within the sphere of revelation, of faith and morals. Is all this, or is nothing, or worse than nothing – an imposture and a usurpation – that is, it is Christ or Antichrist!” (Henry E. Manning, Caesarism and Ultramontanism, 1874, p 35)
Cardinal John Henry Newman (1801-1890) put it even more bluntly, “Another serious question is this, whether… a branch of Christ’s Church, not merely has evil extensively prevailing within it, but is actually the kingdom of evil, the kingdom of God’s enemy… The question really lies, be it observed, between those two alternatives, either the Church of Rome is the house of God or the house of Satan; there is no middle ground between them.” (Cardinal John Henry Newman, Essays Critical & Historical, Vol. II, 1890, pp 116-117)
Revered Cardinal Newman admits in his book that; the “temples, incense, oil lamps, votive offerings, holy water, holidays, seasons of devotion, processions, blessings of the fields, sacerdotal vestments, the tonsure (of priests, monks, nuns), images, and statues… are all of PAGAN ORIGIN” (The Development of the Christian Religion Cardinal Newman p 373)
Based on the above evidence, we see that the Roman Catholic Church is from the bottomless pit of Satan’s lie, which has been used to deceive many billions of people.
Here are some quotes from our forefathers of the faith, about the Roman Catholic Church being the harlot of Revelation 17:
In the book of Waldensian Pastor Leger called “Treatise on Antichrist” written in 1120, said “That treatise brands the Romish Church as the harlot Babylon, and the Papacy as the “man of sin” and antichrist.”
Waldensian Reinerius Saccho asserted “that the Romish church is not the church of Jesus Christ, but a church of malignants and that it apostatized under Sylvester—and that the Church of Rome is the harlot in the apocalypse.” (The Testimony of The Reformers, E. Bickersteth, 1836, p. 46 from the Testimony of Reinerius Saccho, in 1254)
Michal of Cesena declared the Church of Rome to be the Whore of Babylon.
Michal (1270-1342) who came out of the Franciscan Order of the Catholic Church declared the Pope “to be Antichrist, and the church of Rome to be the whore of Babylon, drunk with the blood of the saints.” Foxes Book of Martyrs, op cit., p. 445
Martin Luther declared “We here are of the conviction that the papacy is the seat of the true and real Antichrist.”
Martin Luther was an Augustinian monk, who was called out of the papal church.
“The papacy is none other than the kingdom of Babylon, and the violence of Nimrod the mighty hunter… The papacy is a general chase led by the Roman bishop to catch and destroy souls.” The Babylonian Captivity Of The Church
“If you reject the Pope, you must expect to incur every kind of danger, even to lose your life but it is far better to be exposed to such perils in this world than to keep silent. So long as I live, I will denounce to my brothers the sore and the plaque of Babylon for fear that many who are with us should fall back like the rest into the bottomless pit” History of the Reformation vol15 p208
Nicholas Ridley said before being burned to death that the See of Rome is the seat of Satan.
He was the English Bishop of London, he received his Master’s degree in 1525 from Pembroke College, Cambridge. He played a major part in many intellectual discussions on religion, primarily Anglican doctrine. He also ordered the removal of images from churches under his jurisdiction. Ridley, in his farewell letter, before he suffered, said;
“The see of Rome is the seat of Satan, and the bishop of the same, that maintaineth the abominations thereof, is Antichrist himself indeed. And for the same causes, this see at this day is the same which St. John calls, in his Revelation, Babylon, or the whore of Babylon, and spiritually, Sodom and Egypt, the mother of fornications and abominations upon earth.” (Ibid, p. 45)
Jonathan Edwards said that the greatest and most cruel enemy of the Church of Christ is the church of Rome.
Jonathan was an American preacher and theologian, who is perhaps best known for his role in the Great Awakenings of the mid 1700’s. Commenting on the Roman Catholic church in his History of Redemption, Jonathan Edwards stated:
“So that antichrist has proved the greatest and most cruel enemy the church of Christ ever had, agreeable to the description given of the church of Rome, [Rev. xvii. 6.] ‘And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.‘” “Thus did the devil, and his great minister antichrist, rage with violence and cruelty against the church of Christ! And thus did the whore of Babylon make herself drunk with the blood of the saints and martyrs of Jesus!” (History of Redemption, Jonathan Edwards, 1793, pp. 452, 460)

Here’s a photo of Pope Francis bowing before a graven image of the pagan Queen of Heaven.
He’s wearing a pagan cap of Cybele while praying, which symbolizes who he serves, while denying Messiah as his head, his leader. And Pope Francis is doing this in front of a large crucifix which mocks Messiah by keeping Him on the cross.
This image shows Pope Francis worshiping a graven image of Mary, the Queen of Heaven, while he mocks Messiah with the repulsive bent crucifix, wearing a pagan Iron Cross and the mitre of Dagon the Babylonian fish god.
A Google search of the phrase ‘Pope Francis Mary‘ shows his obsession with the Queen of Heaven, which denies Messiah.
Roman Catholic bishops helped write the Qur’an to deceive even more people.
Not only has the Roman Catholic Church misled billions of Catholics with a false gospel, but they helped write the Qur’an to mislead billions of Muslims with a false religion.
Mohammed’s older, rich wife, Khadija, was a Catholic. Her cousin, Waraquah, was also a very faithful Roman Catholic and the Roman bishops placed him in a critical role as Muhammad’s adviser, to prop him up as the leader.
The Roman bishops wrote the Qur’an with beliefs that are very similar to Catholicism. The Qur’an exalts Mariam(Mary), mother of Messiah, with one chapter named after her. It says that she was born without original sin, that she never committed any sin in her life, and that she was ever a virgin. It says that she went to heaven with her physical body.
Both Roman Catholicism and Islam revere the moon god and sun god; use prayer beads; have pilgrimages; believe in forced conversions by the sword and killing heretics; and have Holy wars. Muslim women and nuns are covered up in black.
Islam reveres Jesus as a mighty prophet, so they esteem the Pope as Messiah’s representative. And now the Popes are drawing Muslims together with Roman Catholics in the name of unity, to gather them in the One World Government and religion. The Abrahamic Family House in Abu Dhabi, will have a Jewish synagogue, a Roman Catholic Church and a Muslim mosque in a single complex.
The iron in the statue in Daniel 2 points to the influence of the Roman Catholic Church and the miry clay represents the nation of Islam. Read Islam In Bible Prophecy
Is it possible for any other institution to match the description of the harlot of Revelation, who is call ‘Mystery, Babylon the Great’?
