Kingdom Of The Beast

Vatican Fulfills Biblical Prophecy (Rev 13, 17 and 18)
The Vatican Council
The Bible paints quite a clear picture of the major events that precede the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth. Many of the smaller details may be difficult to interpret but the major events concerning the world’s religious, economic and political future are clearly spelled out in Revelation 13, 17 and 18:
A world religious figure will rise to prominence. He unites all the world’s religions into one universal religion. This religious leader looks like a man of God. He performs miracles and even looks similar to Jesus Christ (Revelation 13:11; 5:6). But, he receives his power from the Antichrist and, ultimately from Satan. He is known as the False Prophet (Revelation 19:20).
A second figure comes on the scene. Whereas the first world leader is religious and unites all people under a single world religion, the second man is political and unites all the world’s people under a single world government. We commonly know him as the Antichrist. The Antichrist does not only unite the world under one political system, but he establishes a single world monetary system which abolishes all private or individual business transactions that are not part of the global system (Revelation 13:17).
The relationship between the False Prophet and the Antichrist is an interesting one. The Antichrist (political) empowers the False Prophet (religious). But ultimately the False Prophet causes the whole world to worship the Antichrist (Revelation 13:12). The False Prophet also encourages the people of the world to subscribe to the world financial and economic system and to receive the mark of the Beast (Antichrist) which gives them access to the financial system. Thus the global economy, global political authority and global religion become intertwined. This all happens in the name of unity which sounds good but is not. It is a bad unity because it is man-centered and is a unity against the Lord and His Christ.
How do we move from a world of many separate economies, religions and governments to a single system? This will not happen by military might, but individual governments willingly become part of the world government. This comes about because of two factors: First the nations are deceived into believing that the Antichrist has the answers to the world’s political and financial problems. Second, it is part of God’s plan: “For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.” (Revelation 17:17).
Practically, the world’s leaders will realize that their individual economies are so intertwined and the only way to solve the ever-increasing financial crises is to bring all the separate economies under one roof. Those who stay abreast of world affairs will recognize that there is an ever-increasing number of influential leaders who have begun to promote the idea of a global economy. The most significant of these is the G20 which in recent years has made several statements advocating such a global economy.
But the most startling statements were recently made by the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace in a 41 page “note”. It was published on October 24, 2011 in several languages. The Council speaks for the Pope and is filled with legal verbiage and complicated language, but is one of the most amazing documents I have ever read. It is amazing because it calls for a word-for-word fulfillment of the prophecies of Revelation 13, 17 and 18 and places Rome at the center of the drama!
The first half of the note deals with background and related philosophical issues. But the second half (points 3 and 4) calls for a single world government (point 3) and for a single world financial system (point 4)! Had I not read and studied the document, I would not have believed the statements made in it. I hope in the following few lines to summarize this document:
They quote several recent Popes to show that support for a single world ruler is very much part of the core philosophy of Rome. For instance John XXIII “…also expressed the hope that one day “a true world political authority” would be created”. In the context of the document this means that John XXIII wanted to see a single world government. The document continues to state that today this teaching (of a single world government) is “even more vital and worthy of urgent implementation”
They continue to say of the current Pope that “Benedict XVI himself expressed the need to create a world political authority”. In the same paragraph they list all the reasons why a single world government is desirable. Things like peace and security, disarmament and arms control, the protection of human rights, the protection of the environment, the management of the (world’s) economy, the “universal common good”, the protection of weaker nations from the power of stronger nations etc.
John XXIII is further quoted as saying that in order for such a world government to be effective “it should be endowed with structures and adequate, effective mechanisms equal to its mission”. This simply means it has to be a real government with “teeth” and real authority over the world’s peoples rather than a United Nations type organization with little ability to enforce its will. They concede that the United Nations is the agency to bring this world government about, but at the same time, it needs to be a real government unlike the UN which is simply a committee.
They continue to say that such an Authority must have “global reach”, not by “force, coercion and violence but should be the outcome of free and shared agreement…”. Revelation 17:17 says that the world’s nations will willingly hand over all their authority to the Antichrist. Note their use of the word “Authority” with a capital letter. This is their term for what the Bible calls the Antichrist. They alternatively use the terms “Authority”, “world Authority”, “world public Authority” and “global Authority” – always with a capital “A”.  Revelation 13 and 17 speaks seven times about the Antichrist having “authority”.
The document speaks about the need for all nations to be part of this system and that none should be excluded: “…the world Authority should consistently involve all peoples…”. Revelation 13:7 says “…And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation”. The note says that policies must be binding on all and that the Authority should have “universal jurisdiction”.
In the fourth section that deals with a global economy they say there is a need for “…the commitment to create some form of global monetary management” and “one can see an emerging requirement for a body that will carry out the functions of a kind of “central world bank” that regulates the flow and system of monetary exchanges…” They then speak of the need for such a world economy to be under the control of the world government. Revelation 13:16-17 says that the False Prophet “…causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” In this document, The Vatican has pledged its commitment to fulfill this prophecy to the letter!
Before continuing with the closing comments of this document, let me remind you that Revelation 17:5 refers to “Babylon the great, the mother of harlots”. In the past many have believed that this is an unequivocal reference to the church of Rome (the mother of harlots) and that the “daughter harlots” are the rest of the false religions. I used to hold that Babylon is not necessarily a reference to Rome alone but to all forms of false religion. However, this document is causing me to reconsider my view. Had I not verified that this document indeed was produced in the Vatican at the very highest levels, I would have discounted it as a fake. It seems simply too surreal that the note calls for the implementation of prophecy in such minute detail. I must assume that the Pontifical Council knows what Revelation teaches on this subject and yet, is willing to identify itself intimately with the False Prophet, the Great Harlot and Babylon the Great.
May I also remind you that the tower of Babel was man’s attempt at “global” unification centered on man, and against God, and that the Lord was so displeased that He made them speak different languages and so cause division and the scattering of mankind. God is all for unity, but it has to be a godly unity centered on the Lord Jesus Christ. God is against unity that has man as the focus, especially when that unity is used to oppose God as they did at Babel and as they will in the last days. Babel is the Hebrew name for Babylon – they are the same place, but more than a place, it is a philosophy and a spirit. The Babylon(s) of Revelation 17 and 18 are a revival of the Babel of Genesis 11 and represent the same anti-God and man-centered philosophy. Both are the pinnacle of all anti-God and Antichrist structures (puns intended).
The Vatican document concludes with the following lesson: Quoting the tower of Babel and Genesis 11, they say that Babel warns us that diversity (as opposed to unity) is as a result of selfishness and leads to division. It further states that Babel is a warning of what happens when we don’t stick together and when nations choose to separate. The document very clearly calls for mankind to reverse the effects of Babel and to return to the process of building a unifying (and God-defying) structure. I do believe I sum this up correctly by saying they are literally calling for the rebuilding of Babylon (not the physical but the spiritual, political, religious and financial Babylon of Revelation 17 and 18)!
I will quote the final sentence of the document verbatim: “Only a spirit of concord that rises above divisions and conflicts will allow humanity to be authentically one family and to conceive of a new world with the creation of a world public Authority at the service of the common good.”
Allow me to remind you that what this document calls for is not a pipe dream. It will come to pass, exactly as they are envisioning it and precisely as the Bible has predicted. Let me also remind you that Rome is not isolated from the rest of the world’s religions. In The Berean Call of November 2011, Here is a detailed evidence that the most influential evangelical leaders in America all support and endorse Rome and its leaders.
All this tells me that the end is closer than we like to think and that everything is ready for the fulfillment of the final end-time prophecies. “And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her (Babylon), my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.” (Revelation 18:4).
And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! …”The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’ “And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore” (Revelation 18:2, 9-11). 
Mary Queen of Heaven – Whore of Babylon
What does the Bible say about Mary, Queen of Heaven? Jeremiah 7:18  (Amplified Bible)
18 The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead the dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger!
Queen of Heaven – A goddess of fertility, probably the Babylonian title for Ishtar. She is identified with the planet Venus. Offerings to this goddess included cakes made in the shape of a star (Jerermiah. 44:17-19). 
Jeremiah 44:25 (Amplified Bible)
“25Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: You and your wives have both declared with your mouths and fulfilled it with your hands, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed to burn incense to the queen of heaven and to pour out drink offerings to her. [Surely] then confirm your vows and [surely] perform your vows! [If you will defy all My warnings to you, then, by all means, go ahead!]“
The Queen of Heaven in the bible is a Babylonian goddess whom people worshiped.  She has been incarnated to Roman Catholicism under the name ‘Mary’, Mary, Queen of Heaven.  Many Catholics would deny that Mary worship is part of Catholicism but unfortunately this is not true as she holds a special place in the hearts of many.
All over the world, Catholics have one celebration after the next dedicated to Mary, the Queen of Heaven.  Everything that is done for the Queen of Heaven is sinful; baking a cake, observing Lent, lighting a candle, or burning incense.  God abhors idolatry, and worshiping the Queen of Heaven is a damnable heresy.  God is clear that idolatry provokes Him to anger as seen in Jeremiah 7:18.
Isaiah 42:8 (Amplified Bible)
8I am the Lord; that is My name! And My glory I will not give to another, nor My praise to graven images.
In revelations, Mary, Queen of Heaven is Rome: 
Revelation 18:1,7,14-17  (Amplified Bible)
1After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. 2With a mighty voice he shouted:
“Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evilspirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird. 3For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”
7Give her as much torture and grief as the glory and luxury she gave herself. In her heart she boasts, 
I sit as queen; I am not a widow, and I will never mourn.’
14“They will say, ‘The fruit you longed for is gone from you. All your riches and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.’ 15The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off, terrified at her torment. They will weep and mourn16and cry out:  ” ‘Woe! Woe, O great city, dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet, and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls! 17In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!
But Jeremiah is not the only time the Queen of Heaven is mentioned:
Isaiah 47:5  (Amplified Bible)
5 “Sit in silence, go into darkness, Daughter of the Babylonians; no more will you be called queen of kingdoms. Lamentations 1:1  (Amplified Bible) 1How deserted lies the city, once so full of people! How like a widow is she, who once was great among the nations! She who was queen among the provinces has now become a slave.
This is what Mary, Babylonian Queen of Heaven, Queen of Kingdoms had to say to a Dutch lady by the name of Ida Peerdeman back in November 16, 1950/1 :
Prayer for the world: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father send now Your Spirit over the earth. Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all nations that they may be preserved from degeneration, disaster and war.
May the Lady of all Nations, who once was Mary, be our Advocate. Amen.” “Now the moment has come for you to speak about Mary as Co-redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate under the title of the Lady of all Nations (“Co” meaning companion, co-operating with but subjugated and not equal to the Redeemer. This must be duly stressed). She later added: “It may be asked why this title is not mentioned in the messages of the first five years. It is because the dogma of the Assumption had to come first.” In April of that year, 1951, she added: “The new dogma will be the dogma of the Co-redemptrix. I emphasize ‘Co’. I have already said how much controversy this dogma would arouse. The Church of Rome will have a long struggle over it, but will finally proclaim it. The image and its dissemination – this is the prerequisite to the dogma. This image will be the emblem of the Co-redemptrix. The Lady, Mother, has suffered the sufferings of the Son, both spiritual and corporal.” She later explained to Ida: “By the will of the Father, the Redeemer came into the world. For that, the Father had recourse to the Lady. From the Lady, and from her alone, the Redeemer took flesh and blood; that is to say, His body. From my Lord and Master, the Redeemer received His divinity. In this way the Lady became the Co-redemptrix by the will of the Father. I do not come to bring any new doctrine. The doctrine already exists. Say this to your theologians: ‘Already from the beginning, she was Co-redemptrix. …That is why the Lady of all Nations has been compelled to come now, in these present times, for she is the Immaculate Conception and, as a consequence of this, the Co-redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. These three are but one.”

Virgin Mary In The Koran
Among the persons of Sacred History mentioned in the Koran, the Virgin Mary occupies an important position on the historical and dogmatic plane. In addition to being the object of as many as thirty-four direct or indirect references, Mary also gives Sura XIX its name and is its central figure as the mother of Jesus. The characteristic note of references to the Virgin in the Koran and, to an even greater extent, in Islamic tradition, can be seen both in the information about her genealogy and her childhood—a part of which is more detailed than in the four Gospels—and in the language and way of narration which are seen to be particularly significant. Without going deeply into the question of the validity of the information and of the vast Islamic exegetics or "Mariology" to which it has given rise, we will limit ourself here to recalling that the sources of Moslem tradition are, in this connection, the Arab Gospel of Childhood, the Protogospel of James, the Gospel of Pseudo Matthew, the traditions of judaizing Christians and the Hadith.
To confirm the extraordinary value of the person of Mary, the fact that to her, alone among creatures, and to her Son, is attributed a nature exempt from all sin, is sufficient. We know that the Islamic religion ignores the concept of original sin; it attributes to man, however, a natural defectibility which makes him impure and imperfect from birth. Nevertheless, in a famous Hadith attributed to the Prophet, it is affirmed that: "Every child is touched by the devil as soon as he is born and this contact makes him cry. Excepted are Mary and her Son". From this Hadith and from verses 35-37 of Sura III, Moslem commentators have deduced and affirmed the principle of Mary's original purity. God, in fact, according to the Koranic text, granted the wish of Anna who consecrated to him Mary, about to be born, and the One to whom she would give birth (III, 37). God predestined Mary and purified her, raising her above all women (III, 45).
After this premise it is not surprising that the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, though only implicitly contained in verses III, 31, 37, is univocally recognized by the Islamic religion. The recognition arises without difficulty also from the repeated and always unanimous evaluation of the extraordinary person of Mary and of her pure life (III, 42; XXI 91; LXVI, 12) which set her, with her Son, above every other created being.
Mary's childhood, as seen through the Koran narration and Islamic tradition, is entirely a miracle. Mary grows under direct divine protection, she is nourished daily by angels (III, 32) and has visions of God every day. Everything contributes to making her and her Son a signum for mankind (V, 79; XXI, 91; XXIII, 50). But if the detailed narration of Mary's childhood confirms the exceptional value of her person, it is necessary to stress that the greatness of Mary is completely related to the extraordinary event constituted by the birth of her son Jesus. The fearful and sweet vicissitudes that precede and accompany the birth and the childhood of her whom God chose above all women, are, in fact; nothing but the prelude to the coming of the Messiah (III, 40). Therefore, in the intentions of Mahomet and the whole Islamic tradition, the advent of the Man generated by the Word (III, 45) finds in the history of the little Mary the mysterious preceding fact that prepares the believer, even more than the Gospels themselves do, for an expectation full of awe and hope.
This atmosphere, so charged with expectation and wonder, certainly does not disappear at the moment of the annunciation—a moment that for Mary is the highest and most mysterious one in her earthly life, and that reveals to her at last the significance of her function in the history of men. The Koran does not indicate the place in which this mystery was carried but (XIX, 16). It asserts, on the contrary, (III, 42 FF: XIX, 17) that God sent his Spirit under the semblance of a handsome young man who, similarly to what is narrated in the Gospel of Pseudo Matthew, was the Archangel Gabriel, often identified in ancient time with the Spirit of truth or with times divine Spirit (ruh ul-amin and ruh Allah, XVI, 102; XIX, 17; XXVI, 193). It. should be pointed out that in the Koran version Mary does not utter the fiat which expresses her responsible acceptance of the divine will. Here she merely asks: "How can I give birth to a son if no man has touched me?"; receiving the answer; "Just so! God creates what he wants: when he decides something, it is enough that he should say: let it be! and it is" (III, 147; XIX, 203). A version that confirms the typically Islamic sense of the absolute authority and power of God, and the complete submission of man to his will.
The Koran then narrates that Mary, feeling the moment approach in which she would give birth, withdrew to a lonely place in the East. Moslem exegetics is not unanimous in recognizing Bethlehem as the place of the Messiah's birth nor does it seem to have attached much importance to the question. It lingered, on the contrary, on the episode of Mary who, tired and sad, invokes death (XIX, 22-26). The Spirit of truth answers her once more, bringing to her both spiritual and material comfort. Here, in fact, is inserted the well-known and delightful story of the Virgin who quenches her thirst with the water of a stream that suddenly gushes out under her feet, and who feeds on the dates of a palm tree.
The Koran gives no details about the birth of Jesus. It at once presents Mary who, returning among her people and showing them the Child, becomes the object of terrible slanders. The episode, brief but dramatic, is suddenly solved when the Infant, speaking unexpectedly from the cradle, takes his Mother's defence and exonerates her from all blame (XIX, 30-33). This miracle, to which the Koran refers more than once (e.g. III, 46; V, 113), is among those that have made most impression on the imagination of Moslem believers and that are still alive in their conscience. The episode, however, has also a kerigmatic importance for Islamic theology , since the fact that the Child speaks from the cradle is a violation of natural laws and therefore bears witness to the greatness of the Spirit that is in him.
The Koran does not give us any other information on the Virgin's life, while tradition recalls various and partly conflicting versions of the last years of her earthly presence and of her ascension to heaven. But neither the Koran nor tradition give the story of the Transitus Mariae. Mahomet defended Mary's virginity
Those who do not know the Islamic religion may be surprised to learn that Mahomet defended Mary's virginity, or that he recognized her as the woman chosen by God for a function that was to be unique in history. Mahomet's commitment to defend her and exalt her, also explains his harsh condemnation of the Jews (e.g. V, 156), guilty of persisting in the slander and in refusing to admit Mary's unique role. It is necessary to clarify, however, that, also for Mahomet, Mary is unimaginable if dissociated from her Son: the divine election and the purity of the Mother are directly proportioned to the qualities of the Son; the moment of their interdependence is greatly felt, therefore, since the historical greatness of Mary is conditioned by that of her Son, and the Son in his turn depends on his Mother, who constitutes the indispensable promise for his presence on earth. In the Koran Christ is called repeatedly Issa ibn Maryam—"Jesus son of Mary" (V, 19, 75, 81, 113; XIX, 34)—a name which if it will become perhaps the best known one in the Islamic world, will also be the one that characterizes most the figure of Christ. This correlation, which has led Moslem religious thought to affirm the indissolubility of the dual concept Mary-Jesus and to base its refutation of Christian doctrine on it, seems to have its foundation in the principle of necessity. The negation of Christ's divinity finds its reason, in fact, precisely in Mary's human nature; that is, in the genetic relationship which, entailing the transmission of properties, would exclude a leap of quality from Mother to Son.
This conception, in which there is also inherent the idea of the primacy of the female line over the male line (in the Koran narration of Mary's life, while the person of Zacharias, the Virgin's uncle and guardian, is thwarted by the constant presence of the Angel of the Lord, that of Joseph is completely ignored), is due, in our opinion, more than to the influence of the apocrypha, to an ancient way of feeling that is characteristic of the Semites of Arabia. It is a way of feeling which, is also alive in Mahomet and which leads to mental operations of the analogical type, to a thought geared less to speculation than to the pursuit of parallelisms, to the concordance of diverse but congruent elements, and therefore to the vision of a firm reality, because it is founded on perfect and therefore immutable relationships, which seem to exclude the possibility of gradual evolution. What Mahomet and his commentators failed to grasp intellectually, is the concept that the presence of God can come about in different ways, realizing itself as a circumstantial and determined presence, without causing for this reason any alternation in God himself. This presence, furthermore, may have the character of a gradual and growing manifestation; and may mark a new temporal effect at the very moment in which God sets up a new relationship with his creatures. That Islamic theology should find it so difficult to grasp this concept, seems almost incomprehensible when it is remembered that Mahomet himself, in addition to affirming with unusual forcefulness the omnipotence of God, also perceived a certain development God's manifestation of himself through his "messengers", and recognized Moses, and particularly Jesus and himself, as having a role which, though not well defined theoretically, seems superior to that of the other prophets.
In this case, too, mention should be made, for the sake of equity, of the doctrinal difficulties connected with the Arab social and religious environment in the sixth and seventh centuries, which Mahomet had to cope with and by which he was conditioned to no small degree. Also the historical figure of Mary raised problems for him. At the end of the century, in fact, precisely some Christians of Arabia had introduced the Marian cult which, in the time of Mahomet, had already degenerated into worship of the Virgin as the third person of the Holy Trinity. The inevitable disapproval and condemnation by the prophet of Islam, thus involved the historical person of Mary in new polemics.
Prayer Beads Religious Traditions
 Prayer beads are used by members of various religious traditions such as Roman Catholicism, Orthodox Christianity, Anglicanism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Bahá'í Faith to count the repetitions of prayers, chants or devotions, such as the rosary of Virgin Mary in Christianity and dhikr (remembrance of God) in Islam.
Beads are among the earliest human ornaments and ostrich shell beads in Africa date to 10,000 BC. Over the centuries various cultures have made beads from a variety of materials from stone and shells to clay.
The English word bead derives from the Old English noun bede which means a prayer. The exact origins of prayer beads remain uncertain, but their earliest use probably traces to Hindu prayers in India.Buddhism probably borrowed the concept from Hinduism. The statue of a holy Hindu man with beads dates to the 3rd century BC.
Although the use of prayer beads grew within those religions, it did not enter Judaism, perhaps because of its association with other religions, and to date Judaism does not use prayer beads. Although not used as counting device, many Jews touch the knots on the tzitzits attached to their tallit (prayer shawl) at specific points in their prayers.
The number of beads varies by religion or use. Islamic prayer beads, called "Misbaha" or "Tasbih", usually have either 99 or 33 beads. Buddhists and Hindus use the Japa Mala which usually has 108 beads, or 27 which are counted four times. Baha'i prayer beads consist of either 95 beads or 19 beads strung with the addition of five beads below. The Sikh Mala also has 108 beads. The secular Greek "komboloi" has an odd number of beads—usually one more than a multiple of four, e.g. (4x4)+1, (5x4)+1. Roman Catholics use the "Rosary" (Latin "rosarium", meaning "rose garden") with 54 with an additional five beads whereas Eastern Orthodox Christians use a knotted "Rosary" with 100 knots, although "prayer ropes" with 50 or 33 knots can also be used. Although Anglo-Catholics have used the Dominican rosary since the 19th century, in the 1980s Rev. Lynn Bauman from the Episcopal church in the United States introduced a Rosary for Anglicans with 33 beads.
Isa al Masih – The Muslim’s Jesus Christ 
Dreams and visions have, through recorded history, often guided mankind. God has frequently made use of dreams in communicating his will to men. Who is Isa Al Masih the man in white?
So it’s happening.  Muslims are having dreams and visions of something that looks like Jesus.  Imagine that.  If it was not for the Bible we would be none the wiser as to what was going on.  Fortunately for those who do take the Word of God extremely seriously you will understand that we are in the end times, where each of the major world’s religions expects their Messiah/Christ to return.
  • Buddhists:  Maitreya is the name for the 5th BuddhaMuslimChristCollageDTW - © - Fairuse Copyright ©, Please credit and link to if you use this image.
  • Hindus:   Krishna
  • Islam:  Isa al Masih (Jesus Christ),  Isa ibn Miryam (Jesus son of Mary),  Al Masih Isa Ibn Allah (Jesus Christ son of Allah)
  • Roman Catholics await their Eucharist Christ (Jesus son of Goddess Mary),
  • Jews await their Messiah (not realising that it’s Jesus Christ the Son of God).  But the time is coming if not here already that Jews are being born again and accepting Jesus Christ the Son of God as their Saviour.  Unfortunately many are also accepting the lies of the false Christ.
This false Christ that appears in all religions through out the ages has many names:  Esa, Essa, Iesous, Jesus, Yashua, Iswara, Tammuz, Adonis, Horus, Deoius, Jupiter, Cain, Cupid, Mithra, Pepi, Bacchus, Hurcules, Dionysus, Yi, Balder, Quetzalcoatl, etc.
  • Born again Christians await Jesus Christ the Son of God as mentioned in the Bible and the Bible only.
Morph all these ‘Christs’ together (excluding the genuine Jesus Christ that is ONLY FOUND IN THE BIBLE) you get the Cosmic Christ or just The Christ (Satan) who’s main calling card is Peace, Love and Unity.  Also known as the Man of Lawlessness in the Bible.  The one who comes to deceive the entire world under the disguise of peace and safety when in fact he has every intention of destroying mankind.
How do you tell the difference?  Well it’s rather easy. 
The REAL Jesus Christ the Son of God CAN ONLY BE FOUND within the pages of the Bible. 
John 14:6;    Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me
Acts 4:12;    ”And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”
What this actually means, believe it or not,  is that no other impostor calling himself Jesus Christ mentioned in any other book BUT the Word of God/Bible can save you.
I was shocked to find out recently that people are using the “Isa al Masih” or “Jesus Christ” mentioned in the Koran to help minister to Muslims that Jesus Christ does exist.  It sounds like a brilliant idea, “I mean gosh Jesus Christ and Mary are mentioned in the Koran, we can use that to witness to Muslims”.  NO!  You can’t!  This is a fake Christ just like every single one I have mentioned above in that long list.  You can’t use a satanic ‘Christ’ and try convert people to the Jesus Christ of the Bible.  And this Christ will show you every sign and wonder you need to convince you that you are producing fruit.   Fruit from a thorn tree.
If a Muslim accepts Jesus Christ as his Saviour and is born again, he/she will no longer be a Muslim they will be a born again Christian.  Being a Muslim is not a culture, it’s a religion.  Just like being a Christian is not a culture either. 
What is the link between all these religions?  Is it Jesus Christ? or  It’s the Blessed Virgin Mary – The Queen of Heaven.  The Koran mentions Mary no less than 36 times.   No other woman is mentioned in the Koran.  Muslims visit the Shrine of Fatima.  Fatima was the name of the daughter of Mohammed, the prophet of Islam.  And Fatima is the name of the village (located in Portugal) that Mary ‘appeared’ in 1917 to 3 children.  In fact visions of Mary within Islamic countries are not uncommon, in fact they are very common.
In other parts of Africa and Asia: 
“When a statue of Our Lady of Fatima is carried through Muslim areas of Africa and India, hundreds of thousands of Muslims come. In two days half a million Muslims came to give their respects to this statue in Bombay, India.”    [Dave Hunt, A Woman Rides the Beast, p. 458.]
“A statue of Mary, ‘Queen of Africa,’ contains both a cross and a Moslem crescent. This indicates the veneration that Muslims have for Mary.”      [Judith A. Bauer (editor), The Essential Mary Handbook, p. 244.]
Some verses from the Koran mentioning Mary and or Jesus:
Koran 3:45     “When the Heavenly Hosts said, ‘Oh Mary! Verily, God gives you the good tidings by way of a Word from Him (Jesus Christ the word of God proceeding from him); his name shall be Al Masih Isa “Saviour” son of Mary (the Messiah Jesus), glorified in this world and at the end and he is of those who is nearest to God.”
Koran 4:171      “…verily Al Masih ‘the Messiah’ Jesus ‘Savior’, son of  Mary is a messenger of God and God’s own words, which he conveys to Mary and Jesus is also a Ruwh ‘soul, spirit’ from God.”
Koran 3:46     “He will speak to the people, in the cradle and in manhood, and he will be one of the righteous.”
Koran 5:110     Then will Allah say: “O Jesus the son of Mary! Recount My favour to thee and to thy mother. Behold! I strengthened thee with the holy spirit, so that thou didst speak to the people in childhood and in maturity. Behold! I taught thee the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel and behold! … and thou healest those born blind, and the lepers, by My leave. And behold! thou bringest forth the dead by My leave. And behold! I did restrain the Children of Israel from (violence to) thee when thou didst show them the clear Signs, and the unbelievers among them said: ‘This is nothing but evident magic.’ 
Judging vs. Not Judging
In light of the present circumstances in our world today, the teachings of Hazrat Isa need to be seriously considered. He taught that each person must deal with his own faults before he tries to sort out the faults of others.
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the same measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, `Let me remove the speck out of your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother’s eye.” (Injil, Book of Matthew 7:1-5)   [1]
Compassion vs. Aggression
Hazrat Isa words are not easy words to follow, but they are very important in maintaining peace in our world. For those who feel aggression toward others, Hazrat Isa’s words are applicable for them. For those who retaliate out of anger, Hazrat Isa’s words apply equally to them. God says through the Apostle Paul,
“Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord. ‘Therefore if your enemy hungers, feed him; if he thirsts, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.’ Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” (Injil, Book of Romans 1:17-25)
Power vs. God’s Favour
The lack of peace in this world is many times a result of the fact that as human beings we have a wrong view of power and God’s favour. When Hazrat Isa lived on this earth, he had compassion on the people that were straying from God’s path.
“But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.” (Injil, Book of Matthew 9:36) 
Honour vs. Shame
We see that he had the right sense of power and assurance of God’s favour because he maintained that compassion to his (not their) own death and God rewarded him greatly.
“who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Injil, Book of Hebrews 12:2)  
Good vs. Evil
The gospel of Hazrat Isa is the gospel of peace because it strikes at the root of pride, jealousy, envy and greed, which are named in the Holy Bible as some of the worst sins.
“But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.” (Injil, Book of 1 Timothy 6:9-11) 
These are the sins that are listed right alongside sexual immorality.
“Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Injil, Book of Galatians 5:19-21)   [1]
Pride vs. Humility
God himself, through the Hazrat Musa (Moses), warned his followers in the following admonition about the dangers of abhorring the evil that others do while smugly thinking that everything is right in their own lives. In the following passage God warns the man who despises idolatry and is among those who have gained victory over the idolaters to realize this, if his individual heart is not right with God he too will come under the anger and curse of God.
(for you know that we dwelt in the land of Egypt and that we came through the nations which you passed by, and you saw their abominations and their idols which were among them wood and stone and silver and gold); so that there may not be among you man or woman or family or tribe, whose heart turns away today from the Lord our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations, and that there may not be among you a root bearing bitterness or wormwood; and so it may not happen, when he hears the words of this curse, that he blesses himself in his heart, saying, `I shall have peace, even though I walk in the imagination of my heart’ as though the drunkard could be included with the sober. The Lord would not spare him; for then the anger of the Lord and His jealousy would burn against that man, and every curse that is written in this book would settle on him, and the Lord would blot out his name from under heaven. (Tawrat, Book of Deuteronomy 29:16-20)


Below is information found on the internet regarding the Jesus Christ found in the Koran and experiences Muslims are having with this ‘man in white’: 
Isa al Masih  
Who is he?  What does he teach?  What about his life, death, and resurrection?
Hundreds of years before the birth of Isa al Masih (Jesus Christ), many prophecies are recorded in the Tawrat and Zabur (Old Testament) that forecast the coming of a Savior for all mankind. A panel of scientists with the American Scientific Affiliation goes on record as saying that the chances that one man could fulfill just 8 of the nearly 300 predictions pointing to the Messiah is one in 100,000,000,000,000,000. Truly it can be no other then Jesus of Nazareth.
At the appointed time in God’s plan, a young Jewish woman became pregnant. Yet this was no ordinary pregnancy, for this woman, Mary (Maryam), had had no sexual relations (though was engaged to Joseph). [ The Bible and the Qur’an clearly teach the virgin birth of Jesus, so we know that Jesus must have been a truly special man with a God-ordained plan.
What was that plan? It was to bring peace to all mankind of every nation.
Some skeptics argue that Jesus never existed historically. Yet historians Josephus, Suetonius, Thallus, Pliny the Younger, the Talmud, and Lucian all record his existence. Some believe he did not die on the cross, or that he was not raised again from the dead. But many eyewitnesses, some of whom were hostile to Christ, say that it is true.
In fact, even today many Muslims from throughout the world are reporting that they have been visited in a dream or a vision by Isa al Masih, often coming as a man in white. In such dreams and visions, he tells of his resurrection and the fact that he is the only way to salvation. The man in white appeared daily for over a month in April of 1968 in a small Church in Elzaytoun district of Cairo in Egypt and was witnessed by thousands of Egyptians, both Catholics and Muslims and was even broadcast on International TV. Surprisingly God is using some of these dreams to reach out to His people. Recently In Egypt, some Muslims were told in their dreams to visit the nearest SDA Church. Many got converted through their dreams!. 
What did Prophet Isa teach about the Kingdom of Peace?
“Hazrat Isa al Masih (Jesus) is recognized by people of all religions as one who has promoted peace with his words and deeds and who has brought much peace to the world.” 
The Kingdom of God
When Hazrat Isa lived on this earth, he came teaching about the Kingdom–the Kingdom of God. This kingdom does not divide along political, ethnic, sectarian or even humanly drawn religious lines. It is the Kingdom of God. You can’t look around and say with total accuracy that this person is in the kingdom and this person is not. Therefore we cannot say that the West is in God’s kingdom and the East is not; nor can we say that the East is in God’s kingdom and the West is not. Yes, there are indications about who is in the kingdom, but the kingdom of God is a kingdom whose total membership is only known to God. Each member of that kingdom is ultimately answerable to God. As a result many leaders today have been fearful of him. 
How To Get In and How It Brings Peace
“First, entrance into God’s kingdom brings personal peace for the individual. Hazrat Isa taught that the way one gets into the kingdom is by admitting from his or her heart and lips that he or she don’t deserve entrance into the kingdom and by believing and following the way God has given to get entrance into his kingdom.
The reason why Hazrat Isa said we don’t deserve entrance into the kingdom is because of the fact that every human falls short of God’s standard of perfection and sinlessness.”
“Second, peace is shown by the individual members of the kingdom toward others around them.” 
Peace and True Power
Hazrat Isa did this from a personal position devoid of political or economic power or the possibility of selfish human influence. He also died for the cause of peace.  Because he refused to cause harm to others or encourage his followers to harm others, he willingly gave up his life even when accused unjustly. 1
Accounts Multiply Of Muslims Who Have Encountered YAHUSHUA (Jesus Christ) In Unsual Dreams

For at least ten years reports have proliferated of Muslims converted to Christianity through dreams.

A California magazine recently published the results of a survey of over 600 ex-Muslims who now follow Jesus. "Although dreams appear to play a minor role in the conversions of Westerners, over a quarter of those interviewed [as former Muslims] emphatically confirmed that dreams and visions played a vital role in their conversion, and helped them in difficult times," the survey said.

Others have found the percentage higher. Karel Sanders, a missionary in South Africa, reported that among African Muslims, "42 percent of the new believers come to Christ through visions, dreams, angelic appearances and hearing God's voice." According to Dawn's Friday Fax, a website that focuses on missionary reports, Arabic-speaking moderators explain supernatural experiences such as dreams, visions and healings through prayer to Jesus. "This is a hot topic in our region. People from all over the Middle East call us, telling how they were healed through prayer in Jesus' name," they quote one missionary as saying. "Muslim listeners often call to tell us about dreams and visions of Jesus, wanting to know what that means for them."

The same is expressed in "I Dared To Call Him Father," a riveting book by a wealthy former Muslim Pakistani woman named Bilquis Sheikh who came to Christ through a series of mystical happenings -- starting with the presence of evil, which she felt was connected to the recent slaying of a persecuted Christian.

"The strange prickly feeling grew inside me as I walked slowly along the graveled paths of my garden," she wrote in a book that has just been re-released. "I stopped my walk and looked around. As I leaned over to grasp the tall green stems, something brushed past my head. I straightened in alarm. What was it? A mist-like cloud -- a cold, damp unholy presence -- had floated by. Of course there wasn't anything out there. Was there? As if in answer, I felt a firm, very real and uncanny tap on my right hand."

This experience led to a series of dreams that -- like so many we now hear -- culminated in the conversion of this Muslim woman. Are such dreams more prevalent now -- with the world situation as it is? Or have they always occurred?

We know that dreams can be important. We think of Abraham. We think of Joseph, the father of Jesus.

But they are also crucial in our own time and in the case of Sheikh, whose husband had been a general and Pakistan's minister of interior, they formed an important part of her conversion -- if not the important role. As she explains in this well-written book (which was first published in 1978), she had been brought up in a Muslim faith which believed that although Jesus was born of a Virgin, He was not God's Son. Still, Sheikh felt moved to explore the Christian Bible -- and that's when it all began.

In one dream, recounted Sheikh, "I found myself having supper with a man I knew to be Jesus. He had come to visit me in my home and stayed for two days. He sat across the table from me and in peace and joy we ate dinner together.

"Suddenly, the dream changed. Now I was on a mountaintop with another man. He was clothed in a robe and shod with sandals. How was it that I mysteriously knew his name, too? John the Baptist. What a strange name. I found myself telling this John the Baptist about my recent visits with Jesus."

That was the dream -- and it was peculiar -- caused her to question everyone who might know -- because up to that point, Sheikh had not yet come across the name of John the Baptist in her reading of the Bible.

She became a Christian. So have thousands of others. The reports have included villagers in places like Morocco. We first heard about this in the early 1990s.

"A follower of Jesus from Guinea tells of a person in white who appeared to him in a dream, calling him with outstretched arms," states the California publication. " This sort of dream, in which Christ appears as a figure in white, is a frequent pattern in missionary work among Muslims."

The examples are multitudinous. A Muslim from Malaysia saw her deceased Christian parents in a dream, celebrating in Heaven. Jesus, in a white robe, told her, "If you want to come to me, come!" She did.

Another convert, this one again from the Middle East, said he was lying in bed with a severe headache. A white figure with a wonderful, peaceful face appeared, laid his hands on his head three times, and the following morning the intractable headache had ceased.

A man from western Africa saw a religious Muslim in hell, and a poor Christian, who could not even give alms, in heaven. A voice explained that the decisive point was not the alms, but the faith in Jesus.

Meanwhile, a missionary working among the Tausugs, the Philippines' largest Muslim group, reports that a number of faithful Muslims "saw Jesus" in their dreams following last Ramadan (this again according to Dawn's Fax). One man dreamed of Jesus killing a huge dragon in a duel and the following day had the same dream again -- which opened him to the Gospel.

A member of the Yakan people in Basilan Province dreamed that the Prophet Mohammed could not look Jesus in the eye. When he told his cousin, a Christian, of the dream, his cousin told him that the dream meant that Jesus is greater than Mohammed.

There are stories of spiritual warfare. There are accounts from Turkey. There are stories of miraculous healings. There are stories from Iraq. A team belonging to "Athletes in Action," a missionary athletes' movement, reported from their visit to the Central Asian republics of Turkmenistan and Kyrgyzstan that "one of the journey's most interesting experiences was to listen to a large number of people telling how they became Christians. Previously, they had been atheists or Moslems. Some told us how God had spoken to them in dreams. Others told us how they had had headaches for days after hearing about Christ. As soon as they decided to become Christians, the headache was gone. One woman told us that on the night she heard about Jesus, nothing happened until she went to sleep. While she slept, she had a terrible dream, in which a satanic figure told her 'You will never escape from me.' But now she has also become a Christian."

There are numerous reports that many of the Berbers living in the Algerian Atlas Mountains are coming to Christ through similar dreams and visions, forming mostly underground cell-churches. Ahmed Ait Ben Youcef, a native Berber now living abroad, said he found Christ in a way that seems typical for previously Islamic Berbers: "We Berbers always believed in God, but many seek their own way under the pressure of the Islamic Arabs. We young people yearned for the right way for our lives and prayed to God for guidance. One of my friends died in a traffic accident. The following night, I dreamed that he, another friend, and I drove to a bright gleaming city surrounded by a white wall. My friend told us that he now lived there."

An Egyptian Moslem was reading the Gospels according to yet another report and had just reached Luke Chapter 3 when a strong wind swept the room and a voice said, "I am Jesus Christ, whom you hate. I am the Lord you are seeking." He decided to follow Jesus that day.

So widespread are such reports that entire websites are now devoted to such anecdotes -- albeit often careful to maintain anonymity. A well-informed source, who for obvious reasons remains unnamed, reports that a former Islamic "Imam" or spiritual leader has led 3,000 Moslems to Jesus, coming to his belief in Christ through appearances and dreams in which a white Man told him to study the Bible. His method is simple: in conversation, he asks others "Have you seen a white man in your dreams recently?" If they have not, he tells them "I was just wondering. Thanks." If they answer positively, he continues by asking whether they are interested in learning who this white man is. And who is not interested in the identity of a mysterious person who appears in their dreams? The ex-Imam then shows them several Bible passages in which a white-clothed man is mentioned, explaining, "That is Jesus. He wants to speak with you, because He wants you to follow him."

Many Moslems have been prepared for that step by their supernatural encounters, and accept the invitation. Some time ago, Bill Bright, director of the mission agency Campus Crusade for Christ, wrote that "we are experiencing an amazing phenomenon. Moslems in particular are having dreams and visions confirming the reality of Christ. After one radio program reported that Jesus had appeared to many Moslems in a dream and said to them 'I am the way,' the radio station received thousands of letters from Moslems in North Africa and the Middle East, in which the listeners said they had suddenly understood earlier dreams. They then wanted more information about Jesus." God is Great! Just as He did in the past, God is showing His mercy and guidance to Muslims throughout the world today! Read the following story portions from Muslims worldwide who have reported such dreams and now follow Isa al Masih as their Savior:
“…two angels dressed in white robes stood on top of the mountain. Jesus was standing between the angels. He left the angels and came to where I stood watching. As he approached me, I knelt down and he laid his hands on my head…”
“…['D.'] dreamt he was sitting with his arms tied to a chair. Then he saw a man he recognized as Jesus coming. Jesus touched the ropes and they fell from his arms…”
“…In the dream, Jesus told me to come to Him and read the Bible and He would show me the way, truth and the life…”
“…I was standing in a cross shape with a low wall around it. In my right hand, I had a big stack of white unwritten papers. I was standing at the cross beam, and I was looking to a small group of people who were standing at the top. They all wore long white clothing, but one of them was different. He was standing at the right side, and with his left hand he was leading the people through a door in the wall. Beyond the door was light, and I could not see what was in there. One moment I was standing in the dream, and the next moment I was seeing the cross from above…”
“…I saw some Christians standing in line to get into Heaven. I tried to get into this line also, but a very tall being blocked my path and I started to cry because the side I was on was really horrible but the side they were on was a beautiful place, so beautiful, so blue…”
“…I went back to bed after a short prayer and saw a second dream. This time it was Jesus as I saw him in the Jesus film years ago and I had trashed his video. He was hanging on the cross, the nails were in his hands and feet, yet he was smiling at me and talking to me. Though he was dying he seemed so beautiful. The cross was huge and I seemed like a little boy. My neck was falling back trying to see the whole face of Jesus and suddenly a huge big circle of light came from above the cross and down upon me…”
“…I was swimming. It was very dark, without any stars in the sky. After swimming for a while, I stopped and looked up at the sky. Suddenly, I saw a star shining. I closed my eyes and made a wish. I said, ‘Morning Star, teach me the secret of life’…I kept having this dream for years almost every other month and this pattern continued until a few months after my conversion, when I read Rev. 22:16, which says, ‘I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star’…”
Filipino Muslims. Stories from the Zamboanga and Basilan regions of the Southern Philippines are starting to come in. Yakan and Tausug Muslims are reporting having dreams of Isa during and after Ramadan.
This worker noted one common practice among faithful Muslims who dreamed about Jesus. He recounted that during Ramadan, these Muslims are required to pray five times a day to Allah but they have the options to pray six to seven times a day. In their sixth and seventh prayer, these Muslims have been asking God to reveal Himself in any form of vision and let truth reign in their lives 
A Vision. The story of one Malay’s trip to Mecca for the hajj and the strange incidents that occurred there.
“The truth is,” said the driver, turning to look straight at his passenger, “Allah wants to know you personally, as a friend, not just at a distance through rituals. Islam cant give you that kind of relationship.”  
The Battle. The story of one Turkish man’s spiritual journey while studying in the Caucasus.
“Just then he saw a ball of light rise on his left. Slowly it took shape into a figure so bright that Simba could not keep his eyes on Him, although he longed to. The Man seemed to be dressed in a white robe, and Simba heard a voice like a song, full of mercy, call out, “I’m here.”

GOD IS THE ONLY HOLY FATHER, NOT THE is blasphemous to call him so , but the majority do. That is right . Israel ‘s woes ARE  MAINLY ABOUT RELIGION WHICH CLEVERLY TIES INTO POLITICS AND ECONOMICS. For those who do not know, the Vatican has been seeking Jerusalem since the Crusades.WHY?
1.It Validates their Church Doctrine.
The Vatican Roman Catholic Church believes that Jesus is reigning in heaven and the Pope is reigning on earth for him.Thus they believe we are under the 1000 year reign of Jesus and that the next eschatology event is a New Heaven and new earth.
Now since Jesus is ruling in Jerusalem above, his representative the Pope should rule in Jerusalem below.This why the Crusaders fought for Jerusalem yesterday and are gaining it through false peace accords today.
That is why the Oslo Accords was the grand deal of giving Jerusalem over as an International city with the holy sites under the Ecumenical domain, which is basically Roman Catholic leadership.
THANK YOU... Tour of the Holy Land 2009 Pope Benedict xvi greets President Shimon Peres who "sold" the holy sites to the Vatican through the Oslo Accords of 1993. courtesy
So priceless is the Vatican’s Eschatology that every famous Evangelical Prophecy teacher is always tempted and blackmailed to tone down on abusing the Vatican Church or connecting it to the evil side of Biblical End times teaching.

Jack van Impe he started out telling Christians to await the Antichrist Roman Catholic church rise in the world.What happened when the followers became global? He toned down on hitting the Vatican and now teaches a strange end time teaching that the world will never end and that Ecumenism is the way…an Evangelical turned Ecumenical.
John Hagee..started out with clear evidence of how the Roman Catholic Church is a Mother of harlots with her false doctrines and history of Jew hate.

What happened when he stepped into the limelight of secular America by supporting John McCain’s candidacy? He apologized for all his teachings that seemed to attack Rome and calls himself Pro-Catholic.Evangelical turned Ecumenical without a whimper.
The list of End time Evangelical teachers turning Ecumenical is alarming as Perry Stone swallows the whole Ecumenical Burger in one gallop by stating that all faiths will dissolve to unite.
That can happen to other denominations which do not have firm dogma BUT the Roman Catholic Church because it is the most organized church when it comes to doctrine and dogma, even when they are false doctrines.
Thus Ecumenism serves Rome and Rome has conquered yet again.Old is Gold.
Having these titles allows the Pope ample freedom to interfere and intervene into the affairs of any State.When he speaks, a Statesman is speaking.This is a very unique position and he shares it only with the King or Queen of England.
His last trip to Israel was one marked with firm calls of a Two State solution and the destruction of Israel’s Berlin wall.
He categorically stated” Bring down that wall”. Next visit he would have already broken down the spiritual walls in religions as he officially declares One world religion of peace and tolerance.
Though some people like Perry Stone teach that the Tree of Life of the Garden of Eden cold have been on the Temple Mount, Jerusalem is God’s holy earthly city.
I mean if it was not the Muslims would have not until the Dome of the Rock there, they would have tried some place else where God was known to be worshiped.
But because Mohamed knew that Jerusalem was the city of God, his religion built a shrine there.Besides Islam started praying facing Jerusalem until Jews were reluctant to turn to Islam hence out of anger Mohamed rejected Jerusalem, but he knew that was the city of God of the Hebrews.However now his religion Islam is anti-jewish and Antichrist.

JERUSALEM..COVETED BY ALL RELIGIONS YET BELONGS TO JESUS CHRIST, THE KING OF THE JEWS...(remember that covetous people steal)The Pope at the Western Wall next to Islam's Dome of the Rock during his 2009 Holy Land Tour
So strong was the rejection, Jerusalem is almost insignificant in the Koran compare to the Bible.Yet this rejection led to the cementing of Jew hate in Islam.
Hence the Palestinian conflict with Israel all based on religious feuds that aid for economic exploitation and political domination.
AS one watches Israel and Jerusalem, one should not forget that Satan wants Jerusalem because it is the place of King Jesus authority and Satan is a thief ,taking what is not his.
There are a lot of interesting things to note about this Royal Wedding from the Bible. 
Prince William and Princess Kate/ Catherine
First of all those who know British History know full well that from the time of, Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I , the time England began to rise as a superpower , England was deemed Israel.
Of course there were monarchs who threw Jews away and even there were certain public buildings that were to be no go zones for Jews , but you find that most of the monarchs employed Jewish names such as Elizabeth, James, Mary and others.
Yet what was ingrained with the set up of the Anglican church was A NEW ISRAEL , with the royal house of David ruling the New Israel called England.That is why there is a house of Lords , to correspond with Jesus the Lord of Lords , the lords in England and other land-lords.
Hence the creation of the King James Bible ( which is truly the only  Holy Bible in English ) that was brought about to bring order in the church .Little did they know that English was going to be an international language 400 years later.They brought that Bible just to bring religious order in New Israel.
So till today the Royal family stands on the story that there a continuance of the Royal house of David .Prince Charles and William are seen as the blood sons of Israel’s King  David when we know that Jesus Christ is the only King we should submit to who is from the line of David.
We shared last time how Jews only have one altar in Jerusalem.However Christianity left the Jewish link of its faith and created many altars in the name of churches.
Thus the cathedrals(which means place of the seat) were built in the name of church worship.Yet those buildings should not be called churches but TEMPLES.
The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate 
Now since they are temples , then what takes place at the altar is considered holy.We are seeing here the royal wedding is going to take place at the altar .The only  physical Altar God recognizes in this world is the one in Jerusalem .That is why Jesus will return and be in Jerusalem , his city , the city of King David.
However when you skim through the order of service of the Royal Wedding you find that :
1. THEY WILL SING THE UNOFFICIAL ANTHEM OF ENGLAND …. JERUSALEM ..which in its lyrics demands that Jerusalem be built in England, confirming the belief that England has replaced Israel.
3.THE NATIONAL ANTHEM ‘S THEME IS FROM THE BIBLE… God Save the King  was always used by Israel as a prayer for the King of Israel
4. THE HYMN OF GUIDE ME OH GREAT REDEEMER INSTEAD OF GREAT JEHOVAH….same tune but one modification , replace Jehovah with redeemer..there is only one Jehovah but there are many redeemers
AND THE GLORY FOREVER AMEN… though this is not necessarily harmful as the book of Luke also does not complete the Lord’s prayer with that phrase, it is ” safer” for them to omit it because they believe the kingdom and power and glory on earth is theirs not Jesus Christ’s.
6. KATE WILL NOT BE OBLIGED TO OBEY WILLIAM…. talk of Gender Affirmative Action in the Royal Family…maybe to show that the Royal family is relevant ,as the older brides vowed to obey while making their marriage vows.
That is just a sneak preview of how Western Christianity has replaced Israel, borrowed from Israel and deleted Israel out of the picture.
3. THE  TITLES….. Duke and Duchess of Cambridge , Prince of Wales

Prince William is the Prince of Wales with his father Prince Charles .Yet the symbol of Wales is a red dragon and the Bible is clear in Revelation 13 who the  red dragon is.
12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great
red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon
his heads.

12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
It is just weird that in 2011 when the so called Harold Camping May 21 2011 Jesus return or Rapture is on course with the Red Dragon’s entity Royal Marriage, 23 days later.
And for those who are number freaks , Prince Charles married his wife late Diana  also on 29.
Charles Marriage … July 29 ..2 +9 =11
William’s Marriage…. April  29 = 2+ 9= 11,  William’s age is 29, 2+9 =11
Hitler’s Marriage …. April  29= 2+ 9 = 11 …which from  Prince William’s marriage is 66 YEARS , 6 ELEVENS AGO.
The Royal wedding is 7 days after the Pagan Easter and Good Friday.
The whole Media blitz is also enough proof to tell you that the Elite are making a statement and we as believers know that no matter what the statement is our King Jesus is King of Kings and we only pledge allegiance to him .the Lamb of God Jesus Christ the son of Abraham and David.Amen.

FROM THE CATHOLIC HOLY WEEK TO THE ANGLICAN ROYAL WEEK .. 2 WEEKS OF SIGNIFICANCE FOR THE SLEEPING WORLD…Why you should not switch off the Mainstream Media which in showing you what the Elite wants you to know , exposes their plans already prophesied in the Bible
As the world has just finished celebrating the ” Catholic Holy Week”, it is now being prepared to celebrate the “Anglican Royal Week ” with the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.Some people who are not concerned about weddings and British royalty see that the world media is wasting time and resources on reporting this event :WRONG.The World Media IS REMINDING YOU WHO IS IN CHARGE OF THE WORLD:THE BRITISH EMPIRE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE PAPAL EMPIRE.
Yes, strange but true , the British Empire is also an Octopus that works in twin sequence with the Vatican Octopus as shall be shown below.

THE REVIVAL/ GLOBAL MEMORIAL OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE STARTS WITH THE ROYAL WEDDING OF PRINCE WILLIAM AND KATE MIDDLETON..Thanks to the Internet and Globalized World , this will be one of the most watched weddings by a single global audience at the same time..2 BILLION WATCHING ONE EVENT !! THE POWER OF TECHNOLOGY .
The British Empire is still in charge as long as Britain is still alive and as we always say, as long as the Colonizer is still alive , the colonies are not dead.
America is still a British Colony and part of the British Empire not because it has the Queen ruling America officially..she does not.
America is a British Colony because the British Monarchy, her colonizer is still alive and well.Therefore a living person has living interest and as long as Britain is alive , her interests are still alive .

It is interesting that British colonies have all adopted written constitutions but Britain itself has no Written Constitution but rules by judgments from the royal court houses , acts of parliament and custom.
Actually Britain actually behaves like African monarchies: organized without written constitution and drunk with numerous customs and traditions.Count the number of customs being kept in Prince William’s wedding and you will think you are in some African chiefdom.
Jewish Kingdoms used the Torah/ Law , Muslim Monarchies used the Sharia Law and the Quran, the Roman Empire used Codes .But Britain and Africa used customs despite exceptions of writings of judgments and rights in Britain.
When Imperial Britain visited Africa , it met organized kingdoms that had no written constitutions.This is scarcely mentioned in African history books written by Western historians, few of whom stress this fact.
For example, the Buganda Kingdom in Uganda was organized with a navy , judiciary , legislature and executive tied with a state religion, without having studied Administrative Law and Public Administration in any Western university !
In Western and Southern Africa , the kingdoms were too organized that if the British did not manage to make treaties with them they had to massacre them or tame their cultures with Western Civilization and Religion.
One should not forget that British rule was Christianized fully at the rule of King Henry the Eighth who was called the Defender of the Faith ..the Christian faith or what should be called Roman Catholic Faith, after he wrote the infamous defense of the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church.
However he is the same King who instituted the Anglican church, which has the King of England and not Jesus Christ , as the head of the church.Moreover the Sacraments were only divide up with 2 , Eucharist and Baptism preserved as the Lord’s Sacraments and the other 5 as Minor Sacraments..Rome still seems to be their buddy.
It is from this point of Sate Religion with the King as the head of the church,that England replaced Israel, at least in the mind of the British Monarchy .When Queen Elizabeth I took the throne , she created a glorious, proud England that was quipped to be Israel, having established Protestantism and Anglicanism as State Religion.The King was God’s Representative. Yet the title of defender of faith is still tied to Rome .The tie that binds the Vatican Octopus to the British Octopus.
IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO- Antichrist Ecumenism breathes with fire in England as Pope Benedict XVI standing with Queen Elizabeth II visits Engand...The Queen of England is the Defender of The Faith...that title was created for the King of England after Defending Roman Catholicism not Protestantism or Anglicanism.

A look at TBN’S crest and the Royal Crest or Coat of arms one realizes very interesting similarities English Lion Scottish Unicorn REPLICA OF THE BRITISH MONARCH'S CREST

2.BOTH HAVE CELTIC SYMBOLISM… TBN HAS THE CELTIC CROSS ALSO CALLED THE ANGLICAN CROSS (the surface on which the dove descends), while the four parts of the Royal Crest represent Scotland, Ireland and England , all of which are Celtic states .
1. TBN’s crest has a descending dove which has been used by Freemason and Catholic orders.Take note of all the pictures below which have descending doves on crosses … 

THE PAGAN CELTIC CROSS...Also known as the Ionian Cross, Anglican Cross, Sun Cross, Irish Cross,Welsh Cross, Scottish Cross,St John's Cross, Halo Cross..the same cross TBN employs in their logo
I do not know about you , but one thing is for sure , the similarities are worth noting.First of all TBN is in America , a British Colony thus their subordination to the British Monarch or King.
Secondly, the British Monarch is subordinate to the Pope and Rome /Vatican because the Monarch is the defender of the faith, which faith we know meant the Roman Catholic Doctrines.
In these last days the puzzle is complete and we are seeing that the Vatican Octopus and British Empire Octopus are working hand in hand in unveiling the Government of the Antichrist.The dates given below prove this.
APRIL 29-MAY 1 2011 THE WEEKEND OF ROME AND CANTERBURY...Picture of Archbishop of the Anglican Communion Rowan Williams being "respected" by the late Pope John Paul II.... On Friday April 29 2011, it will be Archbishops Williams big day and on May 1 and 2 2011 it will be the Late Pope John Paul II blasphemous beautification
It is going to be one BIG ROYAL- PAPAL WEEK. WATCH.
