David Berg on Ludwig II King of Bavaria and the Pope

Excerpts from "THE ALMOND TREE" March 18, 1972, NO.158

BEFORE RETIRING FOR THE NIGHT, WE WERE DISCUSSING A GERMAN FILM WHICH WE HAD SEEN, CALLED "THE MAD EMPEROR", on the life of Ludwig II, the King of Bavaria, Southern Germany, who committed suicide in 1886. It was a very sad story of a very sad and lonely young King, an unusually non-conformist rebel who abhorred war, detested the intrigues of politics, and reluctantly was made King at the early age of 19. He was a liberal romantic idealist, who tried vainly to reform the brutal ways of his own government and its aggressive neighbours.

Disillusioned in his idol, Wagner, twice disappointed in love, and defeated by his enemies, he retreated eccentrically into the fantasyland of building castles in the remote mountains of Bavaria, in the depths of the Black Forest, living alone as a disconsolate recluse, until forced to abdicate by his former friends who imprisoned him as insane, until the day of his death by drowning.

David: I asked the Lord why Ludwig went mad, and He said: His heart was twice broken by two selfish women; and that, along with Wagner's demonic music, drove him mad!--And also the betrayal of his own friends. Wagner, upon whom he spent millions, drove him mad! There was also something about his father's mistress. His father also broke his heart and the heart of his brother. (Note: This was not revealed in the film.)

LUDWIG TRIED TO WALL UP HIS BROKEN HEART WITH BUILDINGS and get away from people, 'cause they were unfaithful and disloyal to him, and his own best friend tried to kill him, and his own father disappointed him, and his own women broke his heart, and also his buildings let him down.--And he sought not unto the Lord his God. He sought unto the demons of Wagner. He sought unto the pagan music of the demon-possessed Wagner, whom Hitler also loved and sought after. Hitler said Wagner was the heart of Germany!

FIRST, LUDWIG'S FATHER FAILED HIM, THEN WAGNER, THEN HIS LOVERS--his cousins--and he thought God failed him, because he knew Him not Because he sought not unto the Lord, but the god of religion, the Devil and the Antichrist. He would have been better if he had followed the God of the Gypsies--the Gypsies whom the Romans slaughtered.

Therefore, the Black Forest of Bavaria became possessed with demons and devils and became the habitation of werewolves and vampires, and became mad with superstition because they knew not God, but followed the gods of darkness and the Roman Pope of idolatry!

(Prophecy:) THEREFORE, I HAVE VISITED UPON THEM THEIR SINS AND REQUIRED OF THEM THEIR INIQUITIES, and even now do they lie under the hand of the ugly Americans, because they be partakers of their sins. And those who are party to their sins are partakers of their fruits.

THE WOMEN AND HIS OWN FAMILIAR FRIEND WHO HAD LIFTED UP HIS HEEL AGAINST HIM, went down into darkness with him. So it is with all those who lift up their heel against Me and all those who know Me not, and those that seek after darkness rather than light.

AND THE POPE PLUNGED BAVARIA INTO A HORROR OF ETERNAL NIGHT with his idolatry, from which it has never recovered, and of which the Americans are now partakers because of their sins. (Maria: Why are they partakers?) Because they are there. For this is their portion of Germany.

IF THOU SHALT HAVE FAITH IN ME AND ASK OF ME, I SHALL TELL THEE. For it is given unto babes to know the secrets. I open unto thee the oracles of God, and you ask nothing. (Maria: What about the Protestants that the Catholics massacred in Germany?) All killed--one or two million slaughtered and massacred by the armies of the Pope, with which America would have agreed if she had been there, for even now she agrees. She dwells in darkness. Therefore she is partaker of their sins, and she, too, agrees, For she would have done the same. Because upon her rests the curse of them that know not God, who have forsaken Him that was their Savior, and THEY HAVE GONE AWHORING AFTER OTHER GODS, EVEN THE GODS OF DARKNESS, AS IN BAVARIA, WHOM WAGNER BROUGHT TO LIFE WITH HIS MUSIC, AND WHOM WAGNER INCANTATED FROM THE DEAD and conjured up with his music--whom he worshipped--whom he worshipped--whom all they worship who worship his music--for they are the incantations of demons--the conjurings of sorcerers--and the calling forth of the devil gods of the past, whom the Germans once worshipped. His music was a revival of paganism, and his music brought back the worship of the Devil in Germany, to whom Hitler was subservient, to the demon gods.

James & Tess Arendt

My name is James Arendt. I was raised in the Hegewisch neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, served in the USAF from 1970 to 1974, and became a full-time missionary for Christ living 40 years in Japan, 3.5 years in Russia, and a few months in other countries such as Finland, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, South Korea, Taiwan and mainland China where I also served the King of Kings, Jesus, as an Ambassador for His Kingdom. My full bio.

If you like this website, you can show your appreciation by sending me a gift toward my support. My wife Tess and I moved from the island of Guam USA in June 2023 to the city of Allen in the province of Northern Samar, one of the poorer provinces in the Philippines. My only work is maintaining my websites, Deep Truths, and James Japan which costs me $300 per year now. And Tess is ministering to the local people giving them regular Bible Studies in three groups, children, teenagers and adults.

You may like my James Japan site as well because it covers subjects that are not covered in Deep Truths such as things like the Climate Change Hoax and the COVID-19 death-jabs.
