This week’s Prophecy Weekly is marred with violence and deceptions. In the US, the 22nd school shooting of the year occurred. This brings the number of deaths to school children to greater than those in the military. Neither should happen! At the same time, the US pushed forward with the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, which coincided with 59 Palestinian protestor deaths by Israeli forces. The UN is pushing to open a war crime investigation which the US opposes. There is no peace in Jerusalem!
“The Prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, says the Lord.” Ezekiel 13:16
Meanwhile, the Pope hosted 34 Bishops from Chile. They all offered their resignations as fallout for the scandal against the church. No resignations were offered in response to the initial reports of abuse by the victims. What is the true priority here?
This week’s Prophecy Weekly is again dominated by false prophets having their crimes exposed. Jesus warned, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” – Matthew 7:15. It should be abundantly clear who he was talking about!
There are also “wars and rumors of wars” with conflicts in Syria, Afghanistan and Africa. God destroyed the earth the first time because of violence, and no one has learned from this history!
Patrick Conroy, a Jesuit Catholic, has been sworn back into office this week as the US House Chaplain after a couple of turbulent weeks. Paul Ryan met significant criticism from the Catholic members of Congress after asking for Conroy’s resignation in April. Initially, Conroy conceded and he turned in a resignation letter. Conroy rescinded his letter last week after receiving significant support from Nancy Pelosi and others. His on-again, off-again position in this role has brought the House Chaplain role to the front pages. What is this role all about and who is Patrick Conroy? The findings are alarming and full of hypocrisy!
For the pontifex, this month has been a doozie. Three incidents highlight the hypocrisy of the Vatican on the World stage.
Wealth of Catholic Inc. in Australia, Insurers Pay Abused
One of the first detailed investigations into the overall wealth of the Catholic church has just been completed in Australia. The conservative estimate values the Church in Australia alone at a whopping $30 Billion. Yes, Billion with a B. At the same time, Francis came out asking for retired prelates to live more simply and to shun power. $30Billion dollars buys a lot of power. The pontifex has asked US donors for $25 Million to back a loan for a scandal-plagued hospital in Rome. The donors should tell Francis to pay for it himself! If the church is worth $30 Billion in Australia, how much is it worth in the rest of the world?!
On Wednesday, February 14th it happened to be Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent and the culmination of Carnival, filled with pagan festivities. It was also Valentine’s Day, another pagan ritual. On that same afternoon a disturbed young man walked into a school and shot and killed 17 people and wounded 15 in what is now being called “one of the deadliest school shootings in modern American history.” Trump calls it a “terrible violence, hatred and evil.” In other words, Great Tribulation! “Copycat” threats are now being made to schools all around the nation. “How should one chase a thousand and two put ten thousand to flight except their Rock has sold them…?” This is all Madness of Mind!
The suspect went to his former school and pulled a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle out of his backpack. This rifle is marketed as the “Crusader,” and comes with a biblical verse from Psalm of David, 144, etched in it: “”Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.”
Violence in America is on the rise. This week another school shooting occurred in Florida bringing the year’s mass shooting death toll to 21. There have been eight school shootings in 2018 or just over one per week. With that trend and 45 weeks still to go in the year, what are the leaders of the US doing to deter the next 1, 5 or 45 school shootings? Nothing. The leaders are giving lip service to God while encouraging violence. Let’s look at how.
Oh what a time of pure chaos and confusion! This day for instance, Ash Wednesday, a day of “penance and prayer” for “Christians” to remember their mortality because after all: “from dust thou art and to dust thou shalt return” Coincidentally, it happens to land on Valentine’s Day, a day of indulgent love and sexual rituals with all the candy, surf and turf, cakes and goodies and wine you can eat and drink. What a contradiction! What are you gonna do? The Lenten period is supposed to be a time of penance, abstinence and fasting. The truth of the matter is that it’s all worthless paganism! Just leave it alone.
Some think the mass killings and violence that are taking place recently in the United States are due to the second amendment of the U. S. Constitution, which gives citizens the right to bear arms. The original intent of this right was to have a citizenry willing and able to defend the country from foreign invaders if need be. This right is being sabotaged by foreign invaders. As the debate over gun laws continues, sales have soared. Every mass shooting incident has become a “good for business” opportunity so it might be considered a false flag. As “what manner of man the ruler of the city is, such are they that dwell therein.”
An article dated January 5, 2016, Guns in the US: The statistics behind the violence, points out that “The US spends more than a trillion dollars per year defending itself against terrorism…” Taking a look at the US military budget we find: “The U.S. military budget is $824.6 billion. That’s the budget for Fiscal Year 2018 which covers the period October 1, 2017 through September 30, 2018. Military spending is the second largest federal government expenditure. U.S. military spending is larger than the next nine countries combined.” Over the last ten-year period it adds up to over $7 Trillion! The current National Debt of the US is already over $21 Trillion which comes out to over $63,000 per citizen just in National Debt. They boast of being the “most powerful nation on earth” but who are they afraid of? Continue reading “Violence in America: Who Profits?”
In the recently published Guardian’s list of the 100 best non-fiction books, the King James Bible comes in right under the wire at the 100 spot! Amazing! The English-speaking, Anglo-Saxon peoples on both sides of the pond are enamored with the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible. And why not? It’s their heritage! In fact the Bible is the best-selling and most widely distributed book of all time. Jerome’s Catholic Vulgate version was the first to be printed on the Gutenberg printing press introduced into the “Holy Roman Empire” around 1440 AD. It actually put the axe to the roots of Roman Catholicism since it has nothing to do with idolatrous Rome. The authorized King James Version was published in 1611 AD addressed to God’s people, the descendants of Israel. Many people have lost their lives and had unspeakable things done to them (i.e. The Inquisition) over this book throughout history.
The article states: “The first New England settlements always championed the use of the Geneva Bible, a text that appealed to separatist congregations. However, by a remarkable paradox, towards the end of the 17th century, the King James Bible had come to be treasured as much by Americans as by the British.”
October 31st, 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation. Five hundred years ago, Martin Luther published his 95-theses document challenging doctrines of the Catholic church. The importance placed on the practice of selling indulgences, the false security it gave to those who purchased them and the true destination of the collected money offended Luther.
Martin Luther’s 95 Theses
Martin Luther’s 2nd These states “This word (“repent”) cannot be understood as referring to the sacrament of penance, that is, confession and satisfaction, as administered by the clergy.” These 35 states “They who teach that contrition is not necessary on the part of those who intend to buy souls out of purgatory or to buy confessional privileges, preach unchristian doctrine.”
Luther greatly missed the mark by not denying the existence of purgatory or the ability of the church to sell indulgences. He was just alarmed that “Indulgence Preachers” were selling indulgences as a catch-all for anyone and any sin even if there was no remorse or contriteness. In addition, more importance was placed on selling indulgences than teaching the Catholic church’s interpretation of the Word of God. Luther’s These 53 states “They are the enemies of Christ and the pope who forbid altogether the preaching of the Word of God in some churches in order that indulgences may be preached in others.”
Martin Luther points to the true purpose of indulgences, funding the building of St. Peters Basilica in Rome. His 86th These states “Again, ‘Why does not the pope, whose wealth is today greater than the wealth of the richest Crassus, build this one basilica of St. Peter with his own money rather than with the money of poor believers?’”
