Is the Pope the Holy Father on Earth?  Is Jesus the Wafer Offered at Mass?


Are the Succession of Popes the Extension of the Apostle Peter?

 

Is the Roman Catholic Church Christ's One True Church?

Over the centuries billions of people have believed that "yes" is the answer to all of the above questions but the Bible proves the answer to each question must be NO!  The Bible explicitly says in Matthew 23:9 "And call no man your father upon the earth: for one in your father, which is in heaven".  The Bible also says in Romans 3:10 "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one".  And in Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" so the Pope cannot be the 'infallible Father' because he is a merely a man.  Peter was also just a man so even if the Popes were following after Peter's position as an Apostle, the Apostle Peter was never recorded in the Bible as having ever been in Rome.  And while we know he was crucified upside down and crucifixion was a Roman form of execution, this does not mean he spent time in Rome other than to be executed.  The Apostle Paul went to Rome as a prisoner so its possible Peter was sent there too as a 'criminal' (for his preaching Christ) to face execution there.  But the rumor that Peter was a Bishop there in Rome is nowhere documented, not in the Bible, nor in any other source.  There were historians who wrote during that time, such as Josephus, (who was the most famous non-Christian historian of that time, who documented things about Jesus, the Christians and the Jews), but he never wrote about Peter being in Rome.  So, there is absolutely no evidence that Peter was in Rome as an Apostle or a Bishop so calling him the first Pope is on very shaky ground!  Now let's explore Peter being the rock:  Christ's pronouncement to Peter in Matthew 16:18, "That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church" , was based on Peter's confession on who Jesus is: 'Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God' . Jesus response to Peter, (whose name means little stone), was that with the wisdom God had given him, he was going to be used of God in a mighty way (rock being a large stone) to build the church of God.  So while it was the person of Peter who was first used to build the church, (at Pentecost 3,000 believers were added to the church from when he spoke to the people there), it was still the wisdom of who Christ is that actually builds the church.  Each person who believe in Jesus Christ is a living stone added to the Living Temple of Christ! Jesus Christ is the Rock and the foundation of Christianity:  I Corinthians 3:11 says, "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ".  And while Peter was used mightily by God to build the church, no where does Scripture say Peter was above the other Apostles..  In fact the Apostle Paul wrote two thirds of the New Testament and he even one time admonished Peter (Galatians 2:11-14) for not sitting with the Gentiles because of the Jews who didn't accept them as Christians (because they were not circumcised) so it shows that Peter wasn't perfect.  So the infallibility of the Popes is something the Catholic church made up without any Scripture to back it up. To address the question of whether the Catholic church is Jesus Christ's one true church let's look at how many ways Roman Catholic practices contradict the Scriptures: (RC will stand for Roman Catholicism going forward)

 

1st Sacrament of RC - Infant Baptism:    Acts 2:38,41: "Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." "Then they that gladly received his word were baptized."  How can a baby understand and receive God's Word and how can a baby repent of his sins?  They cannot, they are not able to be saved until they are old enough to hear, understand and decide to follow the Gospel.

 

2nd Sacrament of RC - Penance (the continual act of confession to a priest of sins committed for forgiveness):  I John 2:1-2 "My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate (someone who pleads our case) with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: and he is the propitiation (fulfilled God's requirement of a sacrifice) for our sins, and not ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world." I Timothy 2:5 confirms this, "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus."  So confessing to a priest is a useless act since he is NOT God's appointed mediator and he has no power to forgive sins - only Jesus Christ fulfills God's standard as mediator!

 

Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist of RC - (see picture below of the eucharist held in a monstrance) RC teaches the wafer is held up by a priest and he commands Jesus to leave heaven and inhabit the wafer so Catholics can literally eat the body of Christ (and that it becomes the body, blood, soul and divinity of Christ).  The Bible says in I Corinthians 11:24 - 25 "And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, take, eat, this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped , saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. Jesus held up a piece of bread and a cup of wine, he did not then magically disappear into them so the disciples could partake of him physically, NO, he said eat the bread and drink the wine in remembrance of his sacrifice on the Cross.  The only time Jesus gave his real flesh and blood was at Calvary, he is NOT coming down from heaven perpetually, at the command of every priest holding mass services around the world to inhabit a wafer.  Jesus said on the Cross "It is finished" which Hebrews 10:10 and 12 back-up, "By the which we were all sanctified  through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once and for all." "But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God."  For the RC church to teach that priests can command the God of the Universe to come down off the throne and die perpetually at each and every mass service held all over the world is anti-Biblical.(not just extra Biblical but anti-Bibical) because it is in direct contract to what the Bible teaches.  The eucharist lie degrades the finished work of Christ and amounts to blasphemy.

 

The Sacrament of Confirmation of RC - (when the Catholic Bishop taps the side of a person's face to fill them with the Holy Spirit)  Acts 2:38,41: "Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost."  We've already established the priest has no power to forgive sins so it stands to reason he has no power to give the Holy Spirit/Ghost.  Jesus gives the Holy Spirit to all who sincerely place their faith in Him, no man controls God, Jesus or the Holy Spirit.  On a side note, the giving of spiritual power by touch is something that is done in Eastern religions such as Hinduism, when gurus impart spiritual powers to someone, (and this is now also being done in hyper Pentecostal and Charismatic churches), so it is very dangerous to receive a spirit from someone who supposedly can "impart through touch" even if they say the spirit is the Holy Spirit, it is actually a counterfeit spirit that is coming into people since man does not have the authority to rule over and/or command God the Holy Spirit to do anything.  II Corinthians 11: 4 warns that it is possible to receive a different Jesus, a different spirit and a different gospel that the Apostles did not preach.  II Corinthians  11: 13 - 15 goes on to say:  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

 

The Sacrament of Matrimony of RC - (when two baptized Roman Catholics get married by a priest) - Marriage should not be considered "a work" towards one's salvation to get married because the Bible says in Ephesians 2:8,9: "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."  So, marriage cannot save a person and it cannot even be a salvation step since salvation is a gift of God through faith in Christ Jesus.  The other part of this Sacrament is The Sacrament of Holy Orders of RC (when men go into positions within the church such as priest or bishop): I Timothy 4: 1-3 talks about how in the last days, seducing spirits will teach doctrines of devils such as forbidding to marry (priests and nuns ) which has caused the horrible atrocity of the molestation of children by priests.  It also has ruined the lives of many men who suffered terribly in having to decide whether to serve God or serve the RC church.  Also there are reports of nuns having been raped by priests and aborted babies buried underneath monasteries.

 

The final Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick (formerly called Extreme Unction) - (when the priest hears a person's last confession before dying so they can go to purgatory)  Hebrews 10:14, 18 and 19 says, "For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are santified." "Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin."  "Having therefore brethren boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus."  These verses and many more show that a person who is saved by repenting and accepting Christ needs no further works (sacraments) to get into heaven. Christ's death on the Cross was the perfect sacrifice, so to say that we have to pay for the rest of our sins in a place called purgatory (which is not in the Bible) is to blaspheme Christ's holy work at the Cross.

 

So hopefully you can see now how RC has its parishioners focused on works rather than Jesus for salvation.  The RC church does not teach how perfect a Savior Jesus is and how perfectly He and the Father have provided a salvation plan for those who believe. The RC church says its a sin to say you know you are going to heaven but the Bible teaches a person is born-again by putting their faith in Jesus and at the time of their confession of Christ they get the Holy Spirit as a deposit of heaven.  The rest of their life is spent working on their relationship with God through sanctification, not salvation, because they already got salvation upon their acceptance of Jesus as Savior and Lord! 


There are many who have received freedom from RC's religious system to new life in Christ and you can be one of them!  Please read testimonies of former Catholics, Catholic priests and Catholic nuns to gain more clarity on the way to freedom:

The sunburst monstrance above is holding a wafer that has the initials IHS on it. (All RC wafers have these initials on them.)  The Catholic parishioners are told IHS stands for a Latin form of Jesus' name but they actually stand for Isis, Horeb and Seb, (Three Egyptian gods from past history) where the practice of bowing down to a wafer in a monstrance began.  Actually the practice originated in Babylon but moved onto Egypt where the initials IHS began.  So there is nothing Christian about bowing to the monstrance because this wafer is NOT Jesus Christ.  Also, see below, the outfits of the Popes are a direct copy of former pagan religions.  Jesus Christ never asked us to do any of the things the RC does and we should NOT wink lightly at the Vatican system for making their own way outside of the Bible! 
Pope Paul VI caused considerable surprise in 1968 when he publicly denied rumours that he had a past relationship while he was an archbishop with a priest who had served as his secretary.  It was the first time in the modern era that a pope had commented in any way about his sexual identity .
The mysterious death of John Paul I, which took place 33 days after becoming the Pope, is examined in a book called "In God's Name": http://www.cai.org/bible-studies/pope-was-poisoned-after-33-days   

Pope John Paul II is called Mary's Pope because he traveled to every one of Mary's shrines around the world and he professed his love for Mary more than any of the other previous Popes.  He is quoted as saying "only Mary could make one heart and one mind of Jesus' Apostles" which can no where be found in Scripture.

Pope Benedict XV! resigned, shocking the world, but soon the reports came out that his resignation was due to the internal investigation into the gay priests scandal and how it was bigger than he could clean up.

Pope Francis is being called the Pope of the New World Order because his mission is to bring all faiths together as one.  This video below shows Pope Francis embracing all faiths in a plea to others to pray for this unity and it is followed by the Words of God on the subject.

Why does RC always show Jesus on the Cross when He is no longer there but seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven?  Its the same reason they continually re-crucify Him in the mass 200 thousand times a day around the world.  RC teaches that Catholics are "being saved" with each mass.  This is contrary to the Scriptures - Jesus died once for all sin and He said "It is finished" just before He yielded up his spirit at the Cross of Calvary .  Mass is how the Roman Catholic church keeps a tight grip on its members and their wallets. But it does worse than that, it blasphemes the Lord Jesus Christ by calling Him the "eternal victim" (you just know that makes the devil laugh) and it lies about the finished work of the Cross which robs people of the assurance of salvation through Christ's once for all sacrifice.

 

Put your faith in Christ alone and receive His free gift of salvation right now!  To add anything to the finished work of Christ is to follow a different gospel, a different christ, and have a different spirit and the Apostle Paul warned about that in 2 Corinthians 11:3 "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtly, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

Please listen to the two men's testimonies below who left Catholicism after studying the Scriptures.

Catholics worship Mary as Co-Redeemer with Christ but nowhere in Scripture does it say Mary was sinless or that she resurrected (or was assumed bodily and resides in heaven on the throne next to Jesus) or that she paid for the sins of mankind! This is something that has evolved into Catholic Tradition over the years; Mary received the title Mother of God with the teaching that she was given the grace by God to be saved of her sins by Jesus at her conception (rather than at her acceptance of Christ like the rest of us) and the worship of Mary began in A.D. 431. And the teaching of the  Immaculate Conception of Mary was made official in A.D. 1845.  (Many Catholics think Immaculate Conception means she was a virgin when she conceived Jesus, no it means that she was born sinless.) This directly contradicts Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" and Luke 18:19 where Jesus said "None is good, save one, that is, God. (And Jesus is God - see Biblical Christianity page.)  Catholics are taught that Mary remained a virgin her whole life but the Scriptures say that she remained a virgin until Jesus was born but then she had other children the natural way with Joseph. So Jesus had brother and sisters.  Matthew 13:55-56 says "Is this not the Carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren James and Joses, and Simon and Judas?  And his sisters, are they not all with us?" Also Catholics are taught that Jesus and God the Father are angry but Mary is merciful so they should pray to Mary when they need something.  All a person has to do to see this is not true is read the 4 Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke & John and see the Father and the Son's love and mercy displayed in miracles and healings and  deliverances all the way up to the most loving act, the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, The Lamb of God, for our sins.  But also Catholics are told Jesus would never deny His mother's request so you are better off to pray to her so she can ask His provision for you.  Scripture shows twice where Jesus rebuked His mother: John 2:4 "Jesus saith unto her (Mary), Woman, what have I to do with thee? Mine hour is not yet come." Matthew 12:47 - 50 "Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? Who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!  For whosoever shall do the will my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister and mother." 


Messages from Heaven: Virgin Mary or Deception? is an excellent video which can be viewed for free on you-tube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrZlAFeJOjE shows the dangers of worshiping Mary as co-redeemer. 

 

The Passion of the Christ movie was created by Mel Gibson to uplift Mary as Co-Redeemer with Jesus Christ.  Please view this video teaching series called "The Poison in the Passion of the Christ" to see all of the ways this film has betrayed the teachings of the Bible.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7_4laCuli4


The 2nd Commandment found in Exodus 20:4,5 condemns all of the worship of statues that goes on in RC. Neither Mary, the Saints, nor Jesus in statue form are to be bowed down to and prayed to - it is idol worship.  And when signs and wonders take place during the worship of idols, you can bet its the devil pouring forth his magic because God won't bless what He has condemned in His Word!  If you don't see the condemnation of idol worship in Exodus 20:4 and 5 in your Bible, then you need to get a non-Catholic Bible so you can see where God has said he forbids it!  The Catholic church removed the 2nd commandment and to make sure there were 10, they divided the 10th commandment into two parts and re-numbered the whole thing.  Why the cover-up?  Because statue making is a big money making industry!  In fact its just one of the ways the Catholic church has gotten rich.  The Vatican was built by taking money for "mass prayers to be said to get loved ones out of purgatory sooner".  Purgatory is no where found in the Bible (the very idea of purgatory says Christ's sacrifice at the Cross was not enough, which is blasphemy!) and the fear of purgatory has cruelly punished grieving families for centuries.  Even the poor were told they would have to give whatever they had, even if it was their last cow that fed their children, to the priest or parish that would say the prayers for their loved one.  And widows with money were talked into becoming nuns and donating all of their possessions to the church. For more details on this please read the book 50 Years in the Church of Rome by former Roman Catholic Priest Charles Chiniquy for details on the historical practices of the Roman Catholic church.  Also please purchase the Dr. Alberto Rivero story on Chick.com.  He was a Jesuit priest in the early 1900s.  You can preview each book also.  Alberto is found here - http://www.chick.com/catalog/comics/0112.asp  and Double Cross - http://www.chick.com/catalog/comics/0113.asp and The Godfathers: http://www.chick.com/catalog/comics/0114.asp.  There are 3 more that follow if you are interested in the whole set.  His story as well as Charles Chiniquy will open your eyes to the inside story of what the priests were privy to and were never supposed to tell outside lay persons.  Thank God both men got saved and warned the rest of us who would've remained in the dark about the inner workings of the Vatican and the Jesuits!  Of course the testimony of Richard Bennett, former RC priest is also very informative and agrees with the testimony of these other men (see link to his website below, Berean.org) plus he offers a book by 20 former RC nuns.

Several years ago, right after I became a true born-again Christian, there was a story in the news about an image of Mary that had appeared on a glass building in Pinellas County, Florida.  I drove over there out of curiousity to see it, as did thousands of people from around the world.  The difference was, I never went to worship her, just to see and wonder about the 'mysterious happening'.  Well fast forward several years later and I found this article online that proves it is not a sign from God but actually a chemical stain that is on other parts of the building as well.  There used to be a palm tree in front of the spot where the '"image of Mary" appeared and there were special sprinklers set up to reach the top of the palm tree because everyone knows a freshly planted tree needs extra help to make it past the initial planting.  Here is a photo of the building prior to the removal of the palm tree: http://tampabayskeptics.org/Mary_1994.html  Here is another picture of a different rainbow colored stain on that same building where there are two palm trees still:  http://tampabayskeptics.org/Buddha.html  People are calling that the Buddha stain because the imagination is still going as far as what these stains might look like.  There are additional small stains in other places on this glass building as well.  To understand the whole situation please read the entire article here: http://tampabayskeptics.org/v9n4rpt.html  For those who might say, this was written by a skeptic and he lacked faith so that is why he wrote this article, I would answer, well yes and no.  He went back and forth on his beliefs about it until he had the opportunity for closer scrutiny and that is when the facts came out that this is NOT the "Mother Mary" and this is NOT a sign from God. 

As for other miraculous sightings or messages from Mary and the miracles she supposedly does, there are some that are hoaxes, such as crutches that are hung up in churches to show that people got healed when they didn't. and then there is the devil's supernatural trickery at work too.  The devil has magical powers, that is evidenced by how Pharaoh's magicians did almost everything Moses did in the Book of Exodus and the devil will certainly perform magic now if it steals your faith away from Jesus Christ. 

Was Mother Teresa a true born-again Christian?  Read the following piece which has quotes from Mother Teresa that show she did not understand that Jesus is the ONLY way to heaven:  http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/exposes/teresa/general.htm 

Also go to this webpage to read how Mother Teresa told of a perpetual darkness of her soul while she was doing her work for the poor, (which points to the absence of the true Christ in her life): http://www.wayoflife.org/database/motherteresafalsehope.html


The miracle that is supposed to be the 1st in making Mother Teresa a saint is disputed by the husband and medical doctors of the recipient of "said miracle": http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/1562284/Mother-Teresa-miracle-patient-accuses-nuns.html

And what about this practice of making a person a saint?  http://www.chick.com/bc/2003/teresa.asp
We are living in the times were we are seeing people abandon their Bibles for the sake of unity with all faiths.  This is called "ecumenism". (see the Pope Francis video at the bottom left.) This "unity" is being orchestrated by the devil who is working to bring all religions under one religious and political leader and I ask you, who is more powerful in both areas than the Pope? In order to do this, the Bible will have to be either watered down so as to be acceptable to all religions or it will have to be abandoned completely.  The fact that there are so many modern Bible translations, and more are being created as we speak, has caused much confusion.  And proof that people are losing faith in their Bibles is the Emerging Church movement - you can learn more about this youth-focused movement on lighthousetrails.com  But actually what will take place is a repeat of history in that the Popes once controlled everything after the Apostles died, through the Roman Emperor Constantine's established new form of Christianity. (which did not resemble Jesus' ministry or the Apostles at all!) The high and lifted up Papal system did not allow the average person to have a Bible in their own language and they would not allow lay people to learn Latin, the only language Bibles were printed in.  This made the people ignorant of God's Word and allowed the Vatican and it's priests to teach anything they wanted.  These times were called The Dark Ages, due to the lack of the light of the Word of God.  And now we see the Vatican is pushing for unity, which would make Protestants abandon the doctrine of the Scriptures in order to embrace the Catholic religion and other people groups of faith .  The result will be the same as the Dark Ages, except now with technology the Vatican will have the power it didn't have before to control the whole world and we will see the emergence of the New World Order.  Those who do not comply with the new world religion/government will be beheaded, (Rev. 20:4) which is actually a repeat of the slaughter of millions of Christians and other people groups during the Roman Catholic Crusades and Inquisition. While people's eyes are currently on Islam, and Islam's slaughter of Christians and other civilians, people have forgotten that the Vatican once elected the Jesuits to head up the Inquisition and Crusades where millions were cruelly tortured and murdered in the name of Catholicism.  You might be saying, "well that's in the past, we should forgive" but did you know the Vatican has documents still in effect today that states that an "infidel should be murdered"?  The only thing that has changed since Vatican II is the Popes' now use the word 'separated brethren' instead of 'infidel', and they are applying a soft touch to get people back in their fold rather than violence.  But rest assured, once they gain enough power, the violence will return.  You should read the testimony of former Jesuit priest Alberto Rivera which is told in the Crusaders series sold on Chick.com  He reveals inside secrets he was supposed to take to the grave but when he converted to Christianity, he felt led to warn people of the secret plans of the Vatican for world domination.  In booklet 7 of Rivera's testimony called The Prophet, he explains how Mohammed, who created Islam, was the son of a Catholic woman (who practiced mysticism) and how the Vatican planted a Catholic woman in Mohammed's life to help him translate his visions too.  (And there are others who tell of how the Vatican worked with Hitler to steal the riches of the Jews in Germany - for one source please read the book The Secret History of the Jesuits by Edmond Paris also found on Chick.com)  So bottom line, Rivera tells how Islam was created by the Vatican so there would be an enemy to take out the Jews. You may ask why?  Because the Vatican claims to have Peter's bones under St. Peter's Basilica but there is evidence that Peter's bones are buried in Israel.  So, if the Vatican can claim the Holy Land someday, they can then claim to "own Christianity".  The problem is Islam was something they could not contain and now is slaughtering Catholics too instead of just the intended targets of Protestant Christians and Jews.  I will let you research and pray about all of this because I have read up on this for a couple of years, but am not here to convince anyone of anything that is not directly found in Scripture, but just to ask you to pray and seek the truth for yourself. 

Please also read the book of Revelation to get a glimpse of how I believe the Roman Catholic church is the 'whore' religion that will go to battle with the Lord Jesus Christ and his church (as history already proves). I've included Revelation chapter 17 below.  Please notice the exact colors of Roman Catholicism represented in the 'woman' whose name is Mystery Babylon and visit my Mysticism page to see how mysticism in Apostate Christianity today originated from RC monks, nuns and priests.  (Mystery Babylon is another way of saying Mysticism or Magic Arts)  Also a Harlot is anyone who worships someone other than the One True God, you can see this in Old Testament with God's feeling about Israel's idol worship.  And notice how "she sits on the waters" which are explained to be nations and people and tongues - Catholicism has a billion+ people and is established all over the world. The 7 mountains the beast she rides on can be translated hills which there were 7 hills of Rome, which the Vatican Hill sits squarely inside of.  And if you asked the people of past generations, the Reformers in particular, Roman Catholicism and ancient Rome were the two great persecutors of Christ's believers, so "drunk in the blood of the saints" would definitely point to the Vatican's many sins against God.

Rev 17 (KJV) "And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth."

My personal testimony is I heard the Lord say to me:  Come Out of Her (I heard this repeatedly for days) and I knew this verse was from the book of Revelation. 

Revelation 18:4  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.


I began to pray to see what the Lord was trying to tell me and I came across a book I felt led to buy called 50 Years in the Church of Rome, The Conversion of a Roman Cahtolic Priest, by Charles Chiniquy.  It can be read online in pdf form at:  http://www.biblebelievers.com/chiniquy/index.html  Also available for online reading: "The Priest, the Woman, and the Confessional" by Chiniquy


Reading the book brought me back to my original convictions about the Roman Catholic church system that I had when I first studied church history and learned that during the Dark Ages and the Catholic Inquisitions of the horrific torture and slaughter of millions of Bible believing Christians who were murdered simply because they would not agree to the eucharist being the physical body and blood of Christ nor would they submit to the Papal system.  Please also see this link to open a pdf version of the famous book Foxes Book of Martyrs to see how the Vatican slaughtered millions:  http://www.ntslibrary.com/PDF%20Books/Foxes%20Book%20of%20Martyrs.pdf 


Initially God meant for me to read this book so I would come out of the Pentecostal and Charismatic denominations, which I feel operate in the same type of mysticism as the Catholic church.  I say that because they rely on extra-Biblical signs and wonders (see my P/C page) and because many of the P/C parishioners are people who were raised in Catholicism.  They felt attracted to the supernatural taking place in P/C services so they go there instead of their first church, the Roman Catholic church.  Often times these P/C Christians do not denounce Catholicism in their hearts so they have not really left this false religion in their pursuit of God.  They think of P/C churches as compatible with their Catholic upbringing.  This is of a great concern to me because if a Hindu were to be brought to a Pentecostal church, they would tell that Hindu they need to renounce their false religion and accept Jesus Christ alone for salvation.  But no one is doing that from the pulpits of P/C churches, no, they are just letting people join them and not ever preaching "to come out of her", the whore of Revelation.  This shows a friendliness that P/C preachers and churches should not have to a false religion such as Catholicism is.
