For years I was very much into researching all the details I could learn about the Illuminati and all its sub groups, i.e. Freemasons, Bilderburger, Council on Foreign Relations, Skull and Bones, etc. but now I think it all may have been a waste of time!
The Bible teaches that there will be a one world government in the time just before Jesus returns. It refers to that government as a “beast.” I think now it’s a whole lot easier to understand the conspiracy from a simple Biblical point of view without needlessly going into all the tiny details of who did what and why. There are literally thousands of conspiracies that combine to make the big picture of why the world has slid into a moral and financial ruin. Isn’t it better just to try to see who is at the top of the pile of evil?
Revelation 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
“Harlots and abominations” refers to all false religions in the earth with all their evil practices.
Revelation 17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
The “woman in Revelation 17:18 is the “MOTHER OF HARLOTS” of verse 5 which is also the “great city”: ROME! This is easily proven when you know the prophecy was given in the Apostle John’s day. “reignth” in Rev. 17:18 is present tense! Rome was already reigning over the kings of the earth in John’s time. Rome at the time represented the Roman Empire. What does it represent today? The continuation of the Roman Empire: The Roman Catholic Church! The Popes are a continuation of the ceasars of Rome.
Rome lost a lot of her temporal power at the end of the 18th century, but I believe she got it back covertly since then. Now it’s called the Vatican or the “Holy See.”
Revelation 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
A believable interpretation of this prophecy is the deadly wound happened in 1798 when the Pope was captured by Napoleon.
“Papal supremacy of the Middle Ages ended in the year 1798, exactly 1260 years after Justinian’s decree established the Papacy as the supreme Christian power in 538 AD. In 1798, Napoleon’s army took the Pope captive and put him into exile. The murder of a Frenchman in Rome in 1798 gave the French the excuse they wanted to occupy the Eternal City.” — Quoted from http://amazingdiscoveries.org/S-deception_beasts_wound_Mussolini_Napoleon
Is the Roman Catholic church alive and well today? Most people don’t think it’s all that powerful, but now after hearing that it caused both World War 1, World War 2, and most subsequent wars following it, I would say it’s powerful enough! The deadly wound it received in 1798 has been healed quite a long time now, since at least from the end of the 19th century!
A friend just wrote me the following:
Visibility of the Catholic Church in the U.S. has risen steadily since 9/11. (I can remember when even entertaining the idea of allowing a Catholic to run for public office in the States brought fever-pitched debate!)
Think he’s correct? I think the present religious affiliation of current U.S.Supreme court justices proves him correct.

I’ve just been reading your views on the Catholic Church; a subject that tends to come up. All being said – What kind of world do you envision when the Catholic Church arrives at it’s ultimate goal of the throne of the whole world? The understanding being that the man of sin, whoever he is, will sit in the temple of God in Jerusalem, showing himself that he is God, opposing all that is called God, all that is worshipped. Where will the Catholic Church in its present form stand in all of this? Let me put it this way – Most Christians who think about these matters envision a time to come where it will be dangerous to carry a bible or even have a cross around your neck or to make any reference to even being a Christian. The Catholic Church is a very showy church in that it expresses its apparent faith through these highly elaborate and costly symbols i.e.. statues of Mary, gold crosses, robes and garments, incense, statues and symbols of Christianity so called. Am I to understand that all of this will suddenly be done away with and we will then enter into some strange new New Testament era. A kind of a world where old things are passed away and all things are become new under some new false Messiah.
I’m saying all this because this just doesn’t seem to add up with the Catholic Church “putting away all of these childish things” which they are highly dependent upon. The true worshippers as Jesus said, are those that worship the Father in spirit and in truth, neither in this mountain nor in that place. So yes, you would have to say that the Catholic Church is Antichrist in this sense but if this went on into an Antichrist world, I can’t quite picture how this would all play out. Let’s face it, it’s all some kind of elaborate play or drama that the Catholic Church plays out to the world to present a false image of Christianity but again, I can’t quite picture this all playing out in an Antichrist world, especially if they were the ones behind the whole thing. Basically, I picture an Antichrist world where religion has become highly illegal and dangerous. I can’t quite picture a Pope being the Antichrist, I can picture one being anti-Christ but not the Antichrist. Will a Catholic Church Pope be the Antichrist?
I hope you find this question interesting to say the least and not to sound critical. It is of course of immense importance that we all understand these matters and can any of us in all honesty say that we know who the Antichrist will be? To that question, we would have to say no and of course time will tell.

I look at the Roman Catholic church of today as a vehicle of the Antichrist to take over the world. That doesn’t mean it will continue to exist in its present form during the Antichrist kingdom. It may morph into a New Age religion that is agreeable to everybody and all other religions except for Bible believing Protestantism.
Thanks for getting back! Well, as we all know, the power of the Antichrist will be mighty. It will know doubt be a world that has been turned upside down, inside out and back to front when he arrives on the world stage, so we’ll have to keep watching and see how it all plays out.
Catholicism is witchcraft. Period.
Nah, it’s the revival of the Turkish Ottoman Empire
The Ottoman Empire is history. It will never revive again.
