The Resurrection from the dead is the concept of coming back to life after death. It is a doctrine of the dead!
Many ancient cultures including Egypt and Babylon obsess over the dead and their funerary practices! They sacrifice to the dead, commune with and seek to for protection and favors. Their practices include veneration to and worship of the dead. With repetitious prayers, they cry out to and petition the dead thinking they’ll be heard. Some even cut and paint themselves in remembrance of the dead. Their gods must be out to lunch or asleep because they never respond!
The idea of Rapture is NOT in the Bible! “According to some millenarian teaching, it is the “transport” of a “believer” from earth to heaven at the Second Coming of Christ.” They actually purport that “the chosen” will be lifted up bodily into the sky, leaving nothing but a pile of clothes behind.
Many characters in Roman mythology, including the Roman progenitor, Aeneas, have been lifted up bodily into heaven. He is recognized by them as the god, Jupiter, from whom they got the Black Madonna. Millenarianism itself is actually based in Zoroastrianism which is an ancient pagan, Persian religion.
The Apostles Creed is recognizable to most “Christians” in the world.
Does this sound familiar?
“I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary…”
The creed is recited as part of the Roman Catholic Mass and baptism. The Episcopalians, Lutherans and Methodists also recite the creed as part of their baptism rituals. It may come as a surprise to the laity in the Protestant branches of Christianity to learn that Catholics recite the Apostles Creed and vice versa. Why? Because the Apostles Creed is a “statement of faith” and these different religions are taught that their religion is the correct religion, yet they all have the same “statement of faith.” Even more surprising is that this creed cannot be found in the Bible or in any other writings by the Apostles. So, where did it come from?
This article will answer the question of “Apostolic Succession,” what it is, who has claimed it for themselves, and who it rightfully belongs to.
Jesus warned to watch out for “false prophets/teachers who come to you as wolves in sheep’s clothing.” The Book of Revelation states that the “whole world” has been deceived by a certain religious entity who is the “Mother” of them all. Let’s take a closer look at this and see what it all means.
Worship of a Black Madonna, Mother-Goddess goes back to ancient times and has been fused into the majority of cultures globally. The origins of this are highly contested among scholars. This article will finally solve the Mystery of the Black Madonna: where and who it came from. But whether it’s white or black, it’s the same image. Syncretism is the practice of combining or fusing different forms of belief or worship into one, i.e. Greco-Roman.
The feast day of the so-called “Black Madonna of Czestochowa” (Poland) is celebrated on Sunday, August 26th. Roman Pontiffs have recognized and venerated this icon for centuries.
There are two Roman holidays being celebrated on this day, but where did they come from and what do they mean? The Prophets of God have been warning Israel for a very long time how they provoke God to anger by participating in such “holy days.” Let’s take a look and see why:
Ferr-agosto is a Roman holiday celebrated in Italy on the “ides of August.” It coincides with the major Roman Catholic Religion feast of the “Assumption of the Virgin.” After a 2-week fast, it’s a time for Italians to go to the beach before summer ends.
Ferragosta comes from the Latin, Feriah Augusti (the festivals of the Emperor, Caesar Augustus, 63 BC – 14 AD) which was introduced back in 18 BC.
Augustus’ predecessor, Julius Caesar had been elected Pontifex Maximus in 63 BCE. Augustus inherited the role about the time of Christ. The Pontifex Maximus, or the Roman high priest, was assumed by the Roman Catholic Pontiff.
The Religious section of the News used to tell of services provided and charitable deeds of congregants. But now, nothing but scandal, war stories, child abuse/rape, suicide bombings, financial embezzlement, money laundering, idolatry, LGBT parades, protests, disputes, intolerance, discrimination, deception, death and the general ‘moral failure’ of the leaders of all religious institutions. None do good, no not one!
The Wages of Sin…
“Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” Rom 1:32
Many articles begin by pointing out that the Vatican is “reeling” from all the scandalous behavior being revealed by their clergy in years past. Deception: The hierarchy has said all along they didn’t know anything about it, but the fact is that it has been common knowledge among the hierarchy who has covered it all up and shuffled pedophile priests around the globe. You can only sweep so much under the carpet before the lumps become visible or you can smell the stink. Now stories of the highly placed Theodore Cardinal McCarrick’s (of Washington DC) sexual abuse is “sending waves of horror through the Church.” The pope knew all about it! He happens to be a fellow Jesuit with the pope who once said proudly that his colleagues in the church are “word-smiths.” What did he mean by that?
Jezebel, described in the Book of Revelation by Jesus as: “that woman which calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols…” Even though Jezebel was a woman who existed many years before Christ, she was a shadow of an entity he prophesied to come. One who “commits fornication with the kings or rulers of the earth.” (Revelation 17 & 18) “How much she has glorified herself… for she says in her heart, I sit a queen… I shall see no sorrow.” Just as Jezebel had an army of the “Prophets of Baal,” this one also has an army of priests and prophets who do her bidding, serve and “eat at her table.”
The Jewish people have a custom to leave a vacant seat and a place set at the Passover table for the Prophet Elijah. With the sound of a knock, the children run to the door and say, “Elijah, is that you?” When he comes, they expect him to be a herald of the coming of the Messiah, to resolve all unanswered questions concerning the Law of Moses, and to deliver God’s people into that Land promised by God to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and to their offspring. This includes all twelve tribes of the House of Israel.
The Arthurian Legend
Similarly, in the Arthurian Legend of the Round Table, there is an empty seat awaiting the rightful king, being the Messiah, the Branch of David, aka King Arthur. He, in pulling the sword from the stone, will thus become the High King over all the House of Israel (Gen 49:8-10). This legend is tied to the story of the Holy Grail, the Last Supper and Joseph of Arimathea, who founded Glastonbury in Britain after the death of Christ.
But how are two Legends tied together?
