1) First you need to understand, "The second Dark Ages." They began by denying, "The Age of Englightenment," the Millennium. They taught you that you cannot beleive any of the "men of the God" from the past. These men were, "Living God writers." The Bible message was banned worldwide, and the Pope's "dead god" was substituted, "in all nations" (churches; Rev 20.7-8) for the Living God. The last book about, "God being alive" (before my books) was Halley's Bible Handbook, 1945. Now "Speculative Theology" -- from the Pope, has been substituted for Bible knowledge. Your insistance, that Babylon is at the End of the Word, is from the Pope. Premillennialism = no God! Preterism = no God! Spiritualism = no God!
But then, men were not that stupid from 1560 to 1948.
The "Great Censorship" was begun when the "World Council of Churches" was founded in August 1948. Their stated Primary Goal is: "Unity with the Pope."
2) The Ten Horns (10 Papal States) ruled for "one hour with the Beast" (Pagan Rome). "One Hour" = 15 Days, or Years. In this case, it was Years -- before the Fall of Pagan Rome in AD 476. So then, the Pope's nonsense about the End of the World was exposed lomg ago.
3) Why does the Pope teach, "No Living God"? He has published the answer to that question: "The Pope is the Vicar of Christ on earth." A "Vicar" is a substitute ruler for someone else. Because "God is dead" -- according to the Pope, then yo are only left with the "Vicar of the dead God."
4) Durning the "Age of Enlightenment" the men of God published all these atheistic claims of the Papacy and the Pope.
5) The Papacy and Popes have never been able to predict the future like the Protestant and Millennium writers had done And like I can do today.
"The Papacy and Pope will be exposed in 2015 by an act of similar magnitude to God running them out of Rome in 1879. They had an 11 year fall (June 4, 1859- September 20, 1870 (A). They are now in their second "11 year fall" (2004--2015) (B). A) Beast (Papacy) and False Prophet (Pope) cast into lake of fire 'alive' (meaning that they would be loosed) - Rev 19.20. B) Beast (Papacy) and False Prophet (Pope) cast into lake of fire with the Devil (Preacher) - Rev 20.10.
6) The Papacy was the "Eighth Head" sitting on the Beast with seven Heads. 7 Heads = Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome, Eastern Roman Empire. B. W. Johnson published this in 1891,, and many others since that date.
7) Your "naming the seven hills of Rome" was nonsense from the Pope. Strong's Greek #3735 is "hill" only 2 times; and is " Mountain" 57 times. These Mountains are said to be seven Heads and seven Kings; see: 6).
8) To think of "hills" is "worldly"; but to thinkof "Mountan/Kingdom" is spiritual.
9) The men who lived closer to the Papal Inquisitions understood who spiritual Babylon was better than the "men of the Second Dark Ages" today. You should read, "Foxe's Book of Martyrs," about all of the "burnings at the stake in England. Bloody Mary (Cathclic) burned 313 at the stake in her short reign of 5 years and 4 months. This was the "Woman (Babyon) drunk with the blood of the saints" - Rev 17.6.
Quote: "I stand by what I stated, there was no time in history up to the present 'to the tune of several centuries when the popes of Rome essentially ruled the rulers of the world'."
Pope Gregory I was the "father of the Dark Ages", beginning the "43 Months" (1260 Years) in AD 600.
Pope Leo I was the "father of the Inquisition," reported by Albert Barnes to have murdered 62,500,000 in that period of time. The sumation was documented. Most were killed in America, and Mexico, and Central America, and Southern America by the Spanish conquistadors. One famous nation (I forget the name now) was wiped out competely. Bloody Mary kiled 313, burned at the stake, in a short reign of 5 years, 4 months. The St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre was expanded, totaling 10,000 Protestants murdered in northern Europe.
The English Civil War of about 40 years was constant murder of civilians.
William Tyndale was murdered for translating the Bible by the papists.
The God of justice brought the Roman Catholics into "remembrance" (Rev 16.19) for their Papal Inquisitions in the First World War. The Catholcs of Britain, France, Italy, Greece were murdering the Catholics of Germany, Austrio-Hungary. The Catholics of Findland and of Russia were bent on killing each other off. This went on for 4 years.
Finally, God, and President Wilson, sent General John J. Pershing to put an end of murdering Catholics murdering each other.
â€œWho also made us sufficient ministers of a New Covenant, not of letter, but of Spirit, for the letter kills, but the Spirit makes aliveâ€ â€“ 2Cor 3.6.
â€œThrough this I speak to them in parables that seeing, they do not see, and hearing, they do not hear, nor do they understandâ€ â€“ Mt 13.13.
â€œGlory of [plural] Gods (MYHLA), the hiding of a speaking, and glory of kings, searching out speakingâ€ â€“ Prov 25.2.
â€œBut a natural man [meaning, you] receives not the [things] of the Spirit of the God, for they are foolishness to him, and he is not able to know, for they are spiritually discernedâ€ - 1Cor 2.14.
â€œBut you are not in flesh but in Spirit, if Spirit of God dwells in you; if anyone does not have Spirit of Anointed, this [one] is not of Himâ€ â€“ Rom 8.9.
NOTE: â€œWe are not human beings, but a new [spiritual] creation.â€
If you do not know the 7 Spirits of God, you are lost.
If you are lost, you had been referred to by Iesous as â€œblindâ€ and â€œdead.â€
2) Kings of the Earth in Symbolism
â€œAsk from Me (Father) and I will give her, nations, an inheritance of You (Iesous), and possessions of You (Iesous) ends of Earth (Israel). You will thunder them in rod of iron, as vessel of pottery, and You will dash them â€“ Ps 2.8-9
This is a prophecy of God destroying the nation of Israel with His Roman legions. â€œNationsâ€ refers to the 12 Tribes of Israel. â€œEarthâ€ refers to â€œthe abode of the nation of Israel.â€
3) Declared Ambiguity.
â€œFor not all the [ones] from Israel, these Israel; neither because they are the seed of Abraham [are] all children. But in Isaac will be called seed of you â€¦. For [ones] not yet being born, not practicing anything good or bad, so that the [ones] according to Election might remain purpose of the God, not of works but of The [One] calling â€¦ I loved the Jacob, but I hated the Esauâ€â€ â€“ Rom 9.6-12.
â€œAnd thus all Israel will be saved, just as it is writtenâ€ â€“ Rom 11.26.
a) Israel divided. b) Jacob loved. c) Esau hated. d) All Israel saved.
And here is demonstrated, â€œThe Limited Generality.â€ This method of â€œLimited Generalitiesâ€ was employed throughout the Bible.
4) â€œKings of Earthâ€; Rev 17.18.
â€œAnd the Woman (Babylon) whom you saw is the great City, the [one] having kingship on [will] of the kings of the Earth (Europe)â€ â€“ Rev 17.18.
The qualifying statements, as to who these kings were, are: â€œThe Mother of Prostitutes and of the Abominations of the Earth (Europe)â€ (Rev 17.5).
#666, Pope Gregory I, placed â€œthe Mark of the Beast (Papacy) in the Foreheads (Minds)â€ of his captives. And â€“ this was not limited to his lifetime. Jaywill and Buzsaw cannot open their mouths without reciting the â€œblasphemies of the Beast.â€ This is also true of you.
The evidence against you is preponderous!
The â€œLiving God Writersâ€ (1680-1948) all understood these subjects.
The â€œSecond Dark Agesâ€ did not begin until 1959.
5) You have some beautiful postscripts about â€œindependent thinking.â€ But, you do not believe in it!
