THE CONTROVERSY WITHIN THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH
The prophecy of what would befall Daniel’s people in the latter days had dealt in nearly half of the chapter with the Jews in a remarkable manner. Then this transferred to the Christians, where most startling developments were predicted to take place in the development of the antichrist system within the church. This being developed, it would lead to the closing scenes of the Christian church before Christ returns in power and great glory.
In the last verses, we saw that the power and title of “the king of the North” had transferred from Rome to the Papacy gradually, with the Papal power exerting more authority and influence over the kings of the Europe. This led to the oppression of the saints of God from Papalism, instead of it’s former opposition of paganism. This transference of power exemplified the intensified work concealing the work of deception and cruelty under the black banner of Satan.
Paganism’s adoption into the Christian church, and the gradual decline of the church happened over 360 years predicted in the Scriptures. Through paganism, Satan gave them promise that if they would worship him by making these concessions to pagan doctrines, and yielding the law of God, they would have influence with the kings of the earth.
The Christian church resisted this advance for 360 years, and while it seemed this union of church and state would take place, the compromise had not come to the full. When the time was ripe for the church’s apostasy, Satan gave them the French emperor Clovis, who fought the battles of the king of the North (the Pope) in a large portion of the empire. By him, a great advancement was made for putting down the rest of the Christian resistance was made. It was only 30 years and the entire Roman empire of the European nations were consecrated to the bishop of Rome. This led to great persecutions and betrayals.
The deification of saints, with especial regard for the virgin Mary was especially exalted; the lands and regions of the earth were consecrated to her, and divided among the saints to further the ends of the Catholic church. Each city had it’s own saint, and it was not uncommon for these to be named after them. In this next portion, we will begin to show how one verse, Daniel 11:40, carries us across 200 years of time, from 1798 to our present time. Far from carrying with it only a few small events, the verse carries developments on the side of both the northern and southern kingdoms that the people of God are caught between.
After explaining this one verse at length, we will be readily equipped to understand the remaining verses of the eleveth chapter of Daniel with no great difficulty.
Click on the arrow of the verses to see an explanation:.Daniel 11:40 - And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.
THE KING OF THE SOUTH & THE TWO WITNESSES
“And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him” signifies the heavy aggression forced upon the Papacy. At the end of the “many days” which the Scripture signified the Papal reign to occur. According to the explanation given in Daniel 12, from the time of verse 31 until 39 there would be 1290 prophetic days (1290 years). This began with France in 508 AD, and would expired in 1798 AD.
France has been called “the eldest daughter of the Catholic church” for her involvement in raising the Papal king of the north to new heights. Only 30 years later, 1260 years remaining in the Papal reign, and the king of the north had control over all of Europe. This period is referred to as forty-two months in the Scripture in Revelation 11:2 (42×30=1260). In Revelation 11, during this time, it speaks of the “two witnesses” of the Lord. Many privately interpret these verses to mean some obscure figure at the end of time, but Scriptural evidence explains itself so we needn’t privately interpret anything. These “two witnesses” are declared to be “the two candlesticks” who give testimony during this parcel of prophetic time during Papal rule.
Who are the “two candlesticks”? They are two of the “seven candlesticks which…are the seven churches.” (Rev. 1:20) These seven churches represent seven church eras; two of these church movements, as explained in the previous verses of Daniel 11, existed in this time. Thyatira (The Waldensian/Wilderness church) and Sardis (The Reformation/Protestant church). These “candlesticks” receive their oil, signified by the Spirit of God, from the two olive trees of Revelation 11, which are the Scriptures of the old and new testament. Both the Wilderness church and the Reformation church gave their respective testimonies. The Waldenses upheld the commandments of God, and the faith once delivered to the saints as inherited from the apostles. The Reformation church called to account various phases of compromise which the Catholic church had made down the centuries. But it says “when they shall have finished their testimony”, a power called in Scripture “the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit” would arise to make war against them, to overcome them, and kill them; yet not only them, but would fight against the king of the north.
This power that arises “spiritually is called…Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.” (Rev. 11:8) Anciently, the king of the south had been associated with the Ptolemaic reign in Egypt, being south of the chosen people; whereas Seleucus was in the northern regions of Jerusalem, where Assyria and Babylon were located. When probation closed for the city and sanctuary of the Jews for rejecting the Messiah, the faithful among them who embraced the Messiah were “scattered abroad”, and “went every where preaching the Word.” (Acts 8:1-4) The message was received by the Gentiles, and from that point on, the blessing took on a spiritual significance, rather than a physical locality. This, this power that arose at the end of the two witnesses’ testimony would be the defining principle for the king of the south, called spiritual Egypt. Who was this power that made war with the witnesses of God on the earth and the Papacy at the end of the 1260 years? It was the principle of secularism/atheism begun by the French revolution.
THE PRINCIPLES OF EGYPT
It was the policy of the Catholic church, under the profession of reverence for the Scriptures, to secure it by translating it into an unknown tongue. By this means, darkness filled the earth, and a man-made interpretation was placed upon the Scriptures. The power of atheism which arose made explicit it’s war against the Scriptures. Speaking of these witnesses, who signified the church and the Scriptures, we are told that “their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city…Egypt…they of the people, kindreds, tongues, and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and a half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.” (Rev. 11:9) For three and a half prophetic days, the French revolution in France violently shed the blood of both saints and papists alike in it’s war against religion.
The principle of atheism finds a fitting symbol in Egypt, whose Pharaoh boldly denied the existence of the God of heaven. The Pharaoh, when answering Moses brought to him the Word of God, answered him, “Who is Jehovah, that I should hearken to His voice to let Israel go? I know not Jehovah, and moreover, I will not let Israel go.” (Exodus 5:2) The repeated manifestations of power by the God of heaven were rebelled against, and the Pharaoh hardened his heart against the God of heaven where He had given the most decided evidence of His revelation. Even so, Atheism (which means “Without God” in the Greek) was building upon the same principles which the Pharaoh, Amenhotep II, had built upon.
It is said of the Revolution that “France is the only nation in the world concerning which the authentic record survives, that as a nation she lifted her hand in open rebellion against the Author of the universe. Plenty of blasphemers, plenty of infidels, there have been, and still continue to be, in England, Germany, Spain, and elsewhere; but France stands apart in the world’s history as the single state which, by the decree of her Legislative Assembly, pronounced that there was no God, and of which the entire population of the capital, and a vast majority elsewhere, women as well as men, danced and sang with joy in accepting the announcement.” (Blackwood’s Magazine, November, 1870) Bibles were burned, reason was made supreme, and blood washed down the streets of France.
Yet in all of this, it was the policy of the Papal power that had begun the work which atheism was completing. This may be evidenced by the very foundation the Papal power was building upon from Daniel 11:36-39. The principles of doing “according to his will”, “exalting himself, and magnify himself above every god”, speaking “marvelous things against the God of gods”, not having a regard for any god, and magnifying himself above everything, in disregard to the law of God and casting aside the plain utterances of Scripture, and even burning the Scriptures of the Protestants, translated into the common tongue of the people; these were the principles hewn out by 360 years of apostasy, especially marked out by France, where the sword of persecution was first unsheathed by Clovis and his army. It was this, and the centuries in which these principles were fiercely defended and strengthened that led to their logical end, which was necessarily atheism.
The Scripture declares regarding these two witnesses that “if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.” The example of persecution which the priests in France had exhibited for so many ages was now returned upon them with signal vigor. The scaffolds ran red with the blood of the priests. The galleys and the prisons, once crowded with Huguenots (French Protestants), were now filled with their persecutors. Chained to the bench and toiling at the oar, the Roman Catholic clergy experienced all those woes which their church had so freely inflicted on the saints.
It was this which led to the conclusion of the matter. In 1798, “the king of the south shall push at him”, the Papal king of the north. Napoleon’s general, Louis-Alexandre Berthier took Pope Pius VI captive, thereby putting an end to the political influences the church had once exercised over the kings of the earth; this event in prophecy is called “the deadly wound” (click here for more information). This push signified “the time of the end”. From this time forward, secularism and atheism would slowly gain it’s ascendency, and be the primary force at-hand to keep the Pope’s authority from being restored.
THE TIME OF THE END
As this date of 1798 is the expiry of the seven times of judgment upon Israel, which began in 722 through the king of Assyria, where paganism reigned for 1260 years, and papalism reigned for 1260 years. This time of kingly dominion over the church because of breaking the everlasting covenant was now at it’s end. The reformation church (Sardis), being the primary church in existence at this time, became heir to the calling of spiritual Israel: the ten tribes. “The time of the end” referred to here does not speak specifically to the end of the age, but rather Gabriel is here speaking to Daniel of what should “befall thy people in the latter days” due to the captivity (Daniel 11:14). As such, it is the time of the end of the captivity of the ten tribes. These ten tribes identity, being spiritually identified, therefore may be found in the people that upheld the Scriptures who existed from 1798 onward.
COMMUNISM: THE KING OF THE SOUTH
Then came the next development when Karl Marx pushed the ideology of communism from 1843-1848. From 1837-1843, Charles Darwin would begin to formalize and develop his theory of natural selection; and in 1844, the theory of evolution was presented by Charles Darwin in his book “The Origin of Species”. It was not long after this that the Papal power, being confined to the Vatican, would lose even the Vatican in 1870 through a growing push for secularism in Italy. All of these were hewn out to develop the spiritual Egypt that has pushed so aggressively against the Papacy to keep it’s power from reviving. Yet as the ancient kings of the north and south had oppressive measures enacted against the people of God, who were caught in the midst of the struggle, even so, the secularism has made efforts to restrain freedom of speech, remove individual religion from the governmental sector, banning an individual’s observance of their faith in a scholastic setting, and even reprimand the mentioning of the Bible until the people of God have felt the need to restrain the expression of their faith, that they might “not give what is holy to dogs…lest they…turn, and tear you to pieces.” (Matt. 7:6) The mere mention of God was Christ, stirring up the natural enmity in the carnal heart, is despised. Every advanced step from this secular power has manifested more oppressive and restrictive measures against God’s people, and the people of faith generally.
These oppressive principles became enshrined in several countries of the world; one of the most notable ones being the Soviet Union. It was in Russia that a communistic form of pushed itself onto the world stage, beginning in 1917. It waxed strong in the spirit of Egypt, taking over a signifant part of eastern European territory where once the Papacy had reigned, as well as part of eastern of Asia. For these reasons, the pushing at the king of the north maintained it’s strength to a considerably large extent.
THE PUSH: THE KING OF THE NORTH
Yet the tide would turn upon the south. We’re told that “the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.” How would the northern king, the Papacy, come against the south? In many ways, over a gradual progression of time and events which took place establishing papal favor, and a gradual shattering of the iron shackles of the arm of atheism would take place.
In Pope Pius IX’s 1864 Syllabus of Errors, he condemned the growing secular nature of Italy, excommunicating the king of Italy, and directly ordered Catholics to abstain from participation in the political involvement and voting of the “godless” Italian state. He had already condemned more than eighty “errors and perverse doctrines” including separation of church and state, a free press and secular education. Taking in much more than the Vatican, the Papal states were dissolved, and Pius IX was made a prisoner of the Vatican, holding out the territory by refusing to allow the small portion of land to be seized from him; though Italy no longer recognized the Pope’s former title of “King of Rome”.
In 1929, in hopes of dissolving the Catholic Italian Popular Party in parliament, a negiotiation was made between Benito Mussolini and Pius XI. An agreement was made to restore diplomatic authority to the Pope, securing the Vatican as independant from the Kingdom of Italy on condition that Piux XI ordered the dissolution of the Catholic parliamentary party in Italy. The Pope agreed, and would set up an Absolute monarchial theocracy at the Vatican. The agreement signed at the Lateran palace in Rome, called the Lateran Treaty, was signed in February 11th, 1929, “in the name of the Most Holy Trinity”; hearkening back to the old Nicene Creed of the days of Constantine. Roman Catholicism was not only to be the ruling power of the Vatican, but also was the church of Italy. By this agreement, the holidays of the church were enforced throughout Italy, churches were fined, and in some cases, shut down altogether from operation. It was not uncommon to see the Pope making demands of Mussolini to gain a stronger hold over Italy.
In a large measure, this was how the king of the north would “enter into the countries, and pass over, and overflow.” Through these diplomatic relations, the Pope had ties with 27 nations in 1929 and in 2017 this number grew to 183. These relations resulted in meetings of the various heads of states across the world with the Pope as the sovereign of the Vatican. Thus, the king of the North makes his voice heard in over half of the countries in the world. While some firm diplomatic immunities exist in Italy for the Pope, the church’s authority over the Italian state was dissolved in the 1980’s, as it’s ties in world affairs became immeasurably strong.
THE THREE-STEP NORTHERN DELUSION
In the land where the few remaining Visigoths had occupied, they renounced their non-trinitarian position, and gradually embraced the Catholic faith, with it’s Trinitarianism. The land was named Portugal. In the countries that had the greatest opportunities, the curse of God would be more readily felt; a marked judgment felt across Europe struck the heart of Portugal, known as the Lisbon earthquake of 1755. Portugal’s people, with their privileges and opportunities having been slighted, were to be given over to Satan’s delusions in a marked manner.
The sign of satanic manifestation occurred in 1916-1917. Three young shepherd girls were visited by Satan, “transformed into an angel of light” (2 Cor. 11:14) three times. The angel was described as “A light whiter than snow in the form of a young man, transparent and brighter than crystal, pierced by the rays of the sun.” He knelt with the children and showed them how they ought to pray “Most Holy Trinity…And, through the infinite merits of… the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of You the conversion of poor sinners.” Both the Trinity and the worship of Mary would be bound up together as mentioned in the explanation of verses 36-39. Yet Mary is known as the one who the Catholics consecrate lands to; she is the god of strongholds. Yet after this, a more striking and more subtle delusion takes place after the third time the angelic visitation takes place, laying the foundation of a sweeping endtime delusion in fulfillment of prophecy regarding “the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders…with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”(2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)
In Fatima, Portugal in 1917, the same year that communist Russia arose, an apparition claiming to be the Virgin Mary appeared to the three children. Then this satanic apparition declares a message that she is greatly concerned about the separation of souls from God through atheism, agnosticism, political or economic systems that have denied God, and through various systems of doctrine and dogma. She then proceeds to give three prophesies, called “the secrets of Fatima”, that were “what is needed for the turning point…the turning point in world history.”
What turning point in world history? The restoration of the Papal supremacy on the earth as the King of the North, and overthrowing the King of the South. The apparition spoke of three events which would inevitably work in favor of Catholicism, and spoke of a sign which would be fulfilled in October. At this, over 70,000 people came to Fatima, where it seemed that the “sun danced”, beginning to spin and tremble for ten minutes, and “everything was becoming darkened.” Like Constantine’s sign which he witnessed in the sun, even so, this sign, accepted by the Catholic church, began to be received by many around the world in favor of the Catholic church. It was only a year later when the Spanish flu, taking an estimated 100,000,000 lives, swept through the land, and had put to death two of the children who were entrusted with the Fatima message.
The three “secrets” began with a vision of hellfire, of souls being tormented in groans and pains, where demons filled with shrieks of despair. Thus it was that the living child reported “horrified us and made us tremble with fear.” Then the apparition promises that she would take the three children to heaven, thus securing their sense of peace and safety in Mary, and away from “the only true God, and Jesus Christ” (John 17:3). The purpose of striking a fear of the wrathful and avenging tyrant they suppose to be God. “You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go,” said the apparition, “To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, may souls will be saved, and there will be peace.” Thus we see that it is to the Virgin Mary, that devotion must be established in the world to “save” souls, by forcing men to turn from their sins. Thus the Pope would honor the god of strongholds by consecrating all the world to her.
THE EUROPEAN UNION FOR CHURCH & STATE
Then the apparition says that World War I “is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out…” It was this second world war that laid the foundation for establishing the European Union. In his war-time message, Pius had called for an international order and the establishment of international organizations. It has been thoroughly documented how Pacelli was involved in helping Hitler rise to power in favor of the church, but refused to condemn the persecution taking place against the Jews. On December 24th, 1942 at the persistent demand from world leaders, the Pope issued a statement declaring that it was departing from “divine law” that had caused this tragedy. He futher declared that devoted men owed a vow to bring society “back to it’s immovable center of gravity in divine law. Humanity owes this vow to those hundreds of thousands who…are marked down for death or gradual extinction.” He then made the appeal for seeing “the Christian conception of the state” power to “its proper function”, to “use every effort to stamp out the errors which cause the State and its authority to depart from the path of moral rectitude…” “in the crusade for a new and noble social order, [to] raise the new standard of moral and Christian regeneration, you must declare war upon the darkness of apostasy from God, upon the coldness of fraternal discord; you must wage war in the name of a humanity which is grievously sick, a humanity which must be healed in the name of the Christian conscience.”
It was after the war, in hopes of keeping the nations of Europe accountable to prevent another world war, the Council of Europe was formed, and in 1955, the flag of the council was created consisting of twelve stars, in honor of Mary. On the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Fatima apparition, on October 31, 1942 Pius XII consecrated the Church and the whole world to Mary, joined by the bishops of Portugal, gathered at the Cathedral in Lisbon. On 13 June 1957 he demanded a united Europe, aware of its foundations, with common institutions, a common foreign policy, and a strong European parliament to control the institutions and the council of ministers. In the same year, this took place, following the signing of the Treaty of Rome which formalized the European Union, he received the heads of government and State of the newly founded European Union, to express his gratification and give his blessings. The Pope’s successor on September 2, 1958 released a 20 meter statue of Mary, calling it “Our Beloved Lady, Ruler of Europe.”
The reason for the formation of the European Union was not hidden, as the political leaders who founded it were overwhelmingly Catholic. Robert Schuman of France was strongly devoted to Mary, and said “Europe [is] the establishment of a generalized democracy in the Christian sense of the word.” He affirmed publicly that Papal encyclicals “define Catholic docrine and bind in conscience.” With Konrad Adenauer (Germany) and Alcide de Gaspari (Italy) being heavily influenced by the teaching of Pope Leo XIII that it was their duty to see “the restoration, both in rulers and peoples, of the principles of the Christian life in civil and domestic society”, they set out towards the uniting Europe to this end. It was their purpose to enshrine in their democracy the Roman Catholic faith, and to have a United Europe which would stand against the growing forces of communism. Thus, the European Union itself is representative of the king of the north, even as communist Russia was for the south.
Pope Paul VI said in 1975 on European unification: “Can it not be said that it is faith, the Christian faith, the Catholic faith that made Europe?”.The pope Paul VI also said:”It is there that our mission as bishops in Europe takes on a gripping perspective. No other human force in Europe can render the service that is confided to us, promoters of the faith, to re-awaken Europe’s Christian soul, where its unity is rooted.”
Thus, the second “secret” of Fatima led to the formation of the European Union at the demand of the Pope, and according to the devices which the church forecasting in the past. From this time, there were two significant points mentioned by the apparition. How did Satan know what should come to pass? It was evident that he knew the prophetic message of Daniel, and was seeking to deceive as many as possible regarding it. We know this because Satan was seeking to hinder the going forth of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem, and even set up an anti-Jewish usurper to the throne of Medo-Persia to prevent the decree from taking place. Now that the prophecy of Daniel is under such significant fulfillment, the Scripture tells us he seeks to deceive as many as he can into siding with him, “because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” (Rev. 12:13) If he cannot hinder the divine purpose, he will seek to twist as many minds as possible against it by foretelling the same events, but setting them forth in a false light in favor of apostate darkness.
THE FALL OF COMMUNISM & THE UNHOLY ALLIANCE
Said the apparition: “I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart… If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church… In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.” You may notice that in the controversy, that the archdeceiver is not certain of whether or not the purposes will be fulfilled so quickly, because he needs the fallen churches to be in full cooperation with the Fatima apparition’s prophetic mission to deceive. Thus he will continue to use communism to persecute and cause war until his church is in harmony with his dark purposes, then he will restrain communism to bring his devices to pass. It is evident based on the words of the apparition that the devil knows that the king of the north will eventually “triumph”.
On January 10th, 1984, the United States announced the establishment of diplomatic relations with the Vatican. Only three months later on March 25, 1984, Pope John Paul II again performed the consecration of the world, and implicitly Russia, to “the Immaculate Heart of Mary” before an idol of the Virgin Mary of Fatima brought to Saint Peter’s Square; called the “program of Marian consecration and entrustment.” Thus, the god of fortresses/strongholds finds a compelling fulfillment in the veneration and worship of Mary.
It was around this time that Pope John Paul II when he worked together with Ronald Reagan, president of the United States, to see the Soviet Union fall, which took place in 1989. Said the National Security Adviser of Ronald Reagan: “This was one of the great secret alliances of all time.” He further stated that “a unity of spiritual view and a unity of vision on the Soviet empire: that right or correctness would ultimately prevail in the divine plan.” Time Magazine dubbed it “A Holy Alliance”. How secret was the matter? The Pope did many secret things to see the communist regime fall, by “supporting political activities: distributing printing machines of all kinds, giving us a place for underground meetings, organizing special demonstrations.” (Wojciech Adamiecki, Organizer & Editor of various underground Solidarity newspapers) Through books, communication equipment, propaganda, ink and printing presses, the king of the North entered into the king of the south’s realm to overthrow it. “Nobody believed the collapse of communism would happen this fast or on this timetable,” says a cardinal who is one of the Pope’s closest aides. “But in their first meeting, the Holy Father and the President committed themselves and the institutions of the church and America to such a goal.” America, the land of sovereign independance, the northern kingdom of Israel’s ten tribes inheritance that they may practice their religion without oppression, was a key component in the hand of the Papal king of the north. From this time forward, the Papal power would rapidly begin to rise, and America, as the spiritual “northern kingdom”, would begin to have irrepressibly close ties to the Papacy to fulfill the forty-first verse of Daniel 11 which follows this.
THE JESUIT ORDER
Yet before moving forward to this verse, one other point bears mentioning on Daniel 11:40 of how the king of the north would come against the king of the south “like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with man ships, and shall enter into the countries, and overflow and pass through.” With the establishment of the European Union, another manner in which the king of the north has ascended into power, overflowing the countries of the world, needs mentioning. One of the most successful ways in which the northern king would enter into the various countries is through the Jesuit order. The Jesuit order was well known by kings of Europe, France’s Napoleon and presidents of the United States making special mention of them for their work of subverting nations through their tactics. However, in the present society, the working of this order is so carefully guarded, that it’s purpose are almost wholly unknown in our day, were it not for certain explicit moves being made in the present time in churches and nations being uncovered, as well as the dark history of it’s past movements.
The order was designed specifically as a militia of the Catholic church; it’s mission to bring the Catholic church back into ascendancy in the nations, working their way into countries with no ties to Catholicism, becoming established as counsellors of kings, presidents, and prime ministers, if not into those very offices themselves. It was a decided purpose of the order to instigate war to the establishment of various ends which would favor the Catholic church. By this, the European Union had further grounds for it’s establishment. So firmly laid out were the designs of this order, that when they had positioned the churches and countries where they felt they should be, the devil removed the current Pope through his resignation, and placed a Jesuit, Pope Francis, to complete the work which the Jesuits had for years been laying the foundation for.
It became evident that this foundation was laid in the dark, but now, the purposes of the king of the north were to advance in a startingly rapid manner. It had only been two years since the European Union had signed the Lisbon Treaty in 2011, which secured a single president over the entire European Union. Several other key presidential positions of economy, an foreign relations had been created in previous treaties had been assigned, but this had proven the most powerful position hithertofore.
In shocking dismay, the British prime minister, Nigel Farage, with several other members of the E.U. Parliament saw that their vote against the president was disregarded. When seeing the selection of the president, who was a man who had appeared on the world stage without any former recognition by the European people. His name was Herman Van Rompuy. Said the British MP in outrage, “I would like to ask you Mr. President. Who are you? I have never heard of you. Nobody in Europe had ever heard of you! Who voted for you?” He then began before the members of the Parliament to call out the president, asking “Is this European democracy? I sense that you are competent, and capable, and dangerous. And I have no doubt that it is your intention to be the quiet assassin of European democracy and the European nation states…” In several press releases from the E.U. and several Catholic European newspapers, after the rise of the Jesuit Pope Francis, Herman Van Rompuy announced, “We are all Jesuits” in reference to those prominent European leaders with whom he was developing the architecture for the future Europe. “It creates unbreakable ties. So there is a ‘Jesuits International.'” He then named several members of the European Union parliament, alongside the Chairman of the Euro group, the president of the European Central Bank, and the president of the European Commission. Thus the Jesuits have been the vanguard of the apostate church, and are driving the European Union through the progression of treaties back under the black banner of the king of the north.
THE REBIRTH OF THE EUROPEAN UNION
The last act of Van Rompuy’s presidency was to have Pope Francis address the European Union members of parliament. Addressing the leaders, he said: “I am likewise convinced that a Europe which is capable of appreciating its religious roots and of grasping their fruitfulness and potential, will be all the more immune to the many forms of extremism spreading in the world today, not least as a result of the great vacuum of ideals which we are currently witnessing in the West, since “it is precisely man’s forgetfulness of God, and his failure to give him glory, which gives rise to violence… I consider to be fundamental not only the legacy that Christianity has offered in the past to the social and cultural formation of the continent, but above all the contribution which it desires to offer today, and in the future, to Europe’s growth.” This was in addition to the statement he gave only days before, calling for Europe to return to it’s Catholic roots and heal the deadly wound sustained in 1798: “I believe that Europe has many resources for going forward. It’s like a sickness that Europe has today. A wound. And the greatest resource is the person of Jesus. Europe, return to Jesus! Return to that Jesus whom you have said was not in your roots! And this is the work of the pastors: to preach Jesus in the midst of these wounds. I have spoken of only a few, but there are tremendous wounds.”
Only two years later, his appeal was similar, and would meet with much greater success. When giving an address at the reception of the Charlemagne Prize on May 6th, 2016, he said, “To the rebirth of a Europe weary, yet still rich in energies and possibilities, the Church can and must play her part. Her task is one with her mission: the proclamation of the Gospel, which today more than ever finds expression in going forth to bind the wounds of humanity with the powerful yet simple presence of Jesus, and His mercy that consoles and encourages. God desires to dwell in our midst, but He can only do so through men and women who, like the great evangelizers of this continent…live for the Gospel, seeking nothing else. Only a Church rich in witnesses will be able to bring back the pure water of the Gospel to the roots of Europe. In this enterprise, the path of Christians towards full unity is a great sign of the times and response to the Lord’s prayer ‘that they may all be one’.”
Pope Francis made what seemed like a strong appeal for Europe to return to Christ, and to have the waters of the gospel nourishing the roots of Europe; which is church and state relations, where the church has laws enacted in the civil and social centers which “Christianize” the continent. But Paul said we are not to receive every gospel; “For if ye receive another Jesus, whom ye have not received…or another gospel, which we have not preached, ye might have to bear with it.” (2 Cor. 11:4) Like the waters of the Euphrates, which were diverted from Babylon causing it’s fall, even so, when the Protestants called them to turn from their wickedness and to obey the Scriptures they had kept sealed away from the people, they refused and this inevitiably led to their fall. Yet, even as the loosing of the Scriptures in the hands of the Protestants led to a great revival and the suppression of Papal oppression, the sealing of the truths contained in the Scriptures has led to a growing darkness from the churches showing favor to the apostate church, and aiding it’s rise to power once more. Was that not what happened in Protestant America when Ronald Reagan, a Protestant, joined with the Pope to see communism fall? Indeed, these are signs of the times, but not signs which speak good things.
A year after this appeal of Pope Francis for Europe’s “rebirth” to heal the wounds of a once-Catholic Europe, the members of the European Union called for “a rebirth” of the European Union on the sixtieth anniversary of it’s signing the Treaty of Rome. A five-step process to the European Union rebirth was drawn up, and the European Union president Joseph Muscat, along with the members of the European Parliament went to the Vatican to look for moral leadership from the Jesuit Pope. Muscat said that Pope Francis “that Pope Francis can “provide leadership that politicians miss…I do think he [Pope Francis] is the ultimate world leader that within the circumstances has the skills and the vision to say things that transcend the obvious and banalities we all say in politics.”
Pope Francis received the leaders of the European Union, again appealing that “Christianity…profoundly shaped” Europe. ” In his address, he stated that “Europe has a patrimony (fatherly inheritance) of ideals and spiritual values unique in the world, one that deserves to be proposed once more with passion and renewed vigour, for it is the best antidote against the vacuum of values of our time, which provides a fertile terrain for every form of extremism. These are the ideals that shaped Europe…”
All of these steps have proven to give life to the death-like slumber of the little horn power, which ruled the nations with an iron heel. Yet in all of these developments, there are even more significant events in the following verses which build upon all of these things.
In the next verses, we will show how the apparition of Mary was a satanic prophecy to make war against God’s remnant people and the last message of mercy to be given to the world. While also showing how America, “spiritual Israel’s northern kingdom”, will be intimately involved in these sad developments.
