For two thousand years, everyone from crystal-ball phychics to Bible-thumping Christians have predicted the end of the world. An earthquake here, a war there, and out come the long-haired fanatics wearing "Prepare for the END" sandwich boards walking back and forth along the busy streets.
So why raise the alarm of warning now?
Because things have changed in the last several years. Swiftly. Globally. Unbelievably. But unknown to most people --even the majority of Christians-- the most startling changes are yet to come and the two major players share a perspective on the future that will shock and challenge what you may already believe.
Disagree. Argue. Debate. But please don't ignore what's here. Nothing would please the Antichrist more.
Let me briefly mention a few identifying marks of the prophecied Antichristian power that would have such influence in global affairs
- "the beast" (coming out of the sea) Rev.13:1, "the little horn" Dan.7:8, or "the harlot" Rev.17:5. These three powers are one and the same power factor
who will decieve and capture the majority of all humanity, at the end of time, just before the return of Christ.
1. Rev.13:18 Antichrist has a number that equals 666.
The Bible says the number 666 would be the number of a man, (Rev.13.18),
and therefore it is not a digital code found in a some computer system,
as MANY Christians are falsly believing.
If you did not already know... one of the Latin titles given to the Pope and engraved on one of the
Papal crowns reads: "VICARIUS FILII DEI",
which translates to mean "Vicar of the Son of God", or "Substitute son of God", or "Instead of Christ".
As we have all learned in public school, some of the Roman letters have numerical value. "U" historically has the same numerical value as "V".
When you add the numerical values of the letters in the mentioned title of the Pope, you will arrive at the sum total of 666.
You are strenuously encouraged to learn more of the historical "Prophesies about Catholicism"
Antichrist was to recieve it's "authority" from The Roman Empire.
It was also prophecied to arise out of Rome after the ten divisions of the Roman Empire.
The "official" division where completed by about year 500 AD.
3. Dan.7:8,20;24 This "little horn" was to "uproot" 3 of the 10 horns.
History of the Arian controversy against popery reveals the Heruli were completely scattered in 493AD, the Vandals in 534AD and finally, the Ostrogoths in 538AD.
4. The Bible tells us that this "beast" power would RULE for a period of "a thousand two hundred and three score days (years)" Rev.12:6,
"a time, times and ½ time" Rev.12:14, or forty and two months Rev.13:5.
All 3 of these descriptive time frames describes the same 1260 year period.
With the opposing nations no longer a problem, in the year 538AD, the papacy began it's "Supreme rulership".
5. Rev.13:3 The Antichrist power should receive a deadly wound.
This happened in 1798, when the Pope was taken captive, and brougth to France by Napoleon's commander Berthier.
The Pope died in captivity and the church was considered to be "dead".
6. Rev.13:3 The deadly wound would be healed.
Another Pope ascended the throne about two years later but without his previous authority.
Not until Mussolini signed the "historical" document in 1929, was the Vatican state returned to the Pope, and the woman (a church), sat upon the beast (a nation) holding the "golden cup of abominations".
and today Catholism is alive and prosperous while nearly all the world bow in reverence before the Pope.
7. Rev.13:16 Antichrist has a mark = "the mark of the beast". We see the prelude to this today.
(Sermon on Gov't tech. to enforce 666).
8. Dan.7:25 "He shall ... think to change times and laws".
It is only the papacy that fulfils this identifying mark. In the Catechism we find an
altered version of God's Ten Commandments, including the commandment of the day of rest,
that especially deals with holy time. (
Compare the 10 Commandments
as you find them in the Bible in Exodus, chapter 20, verses 3-17 to the commandments
as you find them in the Catechism.)
