"Among all the women who have ever lived, the mother of Jesus Christ is the most celebrated, the most venerated...Among Roman Catholics, the Madonna is recognized not only as the Mother of God, but also, according to modern Popes, as the Queen of the Universe, Queen of Heaven, Seat of Wisdom, and even the Spouse of the Holy Spirit." -Time Magazine, "Handmaid or Feminist?", December 30, 1991, p. 62-66
- Jeremiah 7:18 says, "... the women knead the dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger!"
Is the Roman Catholic version of Mary truly the BIBLICAL Mary? Or is she really the Queen of Heaven from the Babylonian church of old that angered the Lord God in the book of Jeremiah? Out of all the proofs that expose the Vatican as the Pagan church, this has to be one of the most graphic. It’s almost as if they went back in time and copied this Pagan goddess exactly, so as to worship her as she desires them to. Old paintings and statues that have been found of this demonic goddess are exact duplicates of statues and paintings you will find today in Roman Catholic churches depicting Mary. Even the colors of her clothing match perfectly! It’s really quite shocking to say the least!
In Alexander Hislop's book, "The Two Babylons", He traces the Babylonian worship of the Queen of Heaven back to the days following the death of Nimrod. As the story goes, after Nimrod's death, his wife, Semiramis, was determined to retain her power and wealth as a leader of the people. So, she came up with the idea that her husbands death was for the salvation of all mankind. Of course we know who actually schooled her in that demonic fallacy. Hislop goes on to say that…
“Though the death of her husband has given a rude shock to her power, yet her resolution and unbounded ambition were in nowise checked. On the contrary, her ambition took a still higher flight. In life her husband had been honoured as a hero; in death she will have him worshipped as a god, yea, as the woman’s promised seed, “Zero-ashta,” who was destined to bruise the serpent's head, and in so doing, was to have his own heel bruised." The Two Babylons p. 58-59
Satan is a very cunning enemy. He always counterfeits prophetic truth in advance so as to make his lies appear holy. In fact, in Hislops book on page 76 he talks about Semiramis’s continued lies that got the people to believe her son was born miraculously. After they fell for that lie, she was then referred to as the “Virgin Mother” from that day forward. Is this not a demonic twist on the prophesied birth of Christ? Truth be known, after Nimrod died, Semiramis committed adultery and had gotten pregnant. To prevent the people from killing her for proving she was “human” by her obvious pregnancy, she lied and told them her husband Nimrod had ascended to the Sun and is now called Baal. After she convinced them of this, she then stated he appeared to her and impregnated her without touching her with the rays of his glory. She also claimed that the moon was a goddess that went through a 28 day cycle and ovulated when full. She further said that she descended from the moon in a giant moon egg that fell into the Euphrates River. This was supposed to have happened during the first full moon after the spring equinox. This is where the Roman Catholic church gets their calculation for Easter. Ask any Pagan or Catholic priest when Easter arrives, and they will most assuredly tell you that after the first full moon of Spring, the following Sunday will be Easter.
The Babylonian people believed all the lies of Semiramis, and she was then crowned QUEEN OF HEAVEN. She later gave birth to her son and named him Tammuz. By the way, this so called “Queen of Heaven” was also called Iishtar. In today’s world, that word is pronounced, EASTER.
So, is the Mary of Rome the same as the Mary of Babylon? Truth is, Catholics the world over call Mary QUEEN OF HEAVEN do they not? When they pray the Rosary, as some do on a daily basis, they must recite the prayer entitled, “Hail Holy Queen.”
From the earliest ages of the Catholic Church a Christian people, whether in time of triumph or more especially in time of crisis, has addressed prayers of petition and hymns of praise and veneration to the Queen of Heaven. And never has that hope wavered which they placed in the Mother of the Divine King, Jesus Christ; nor has that faith ever failed by which we are taught that Mary, the Virgin Mother of God, reigns with a mother's solicitude over the entire world, just as she is crowned in heavenly blessedness with the glory of a Queen. - Ad Caeli Reginam of Pope Pius XII, Encyclical on Proclaiming the Queenship of Mary, Promulgated October 11, 1954
Plus, on my “Do Catholics Worship Mary” page I have numerous quotes from many Popes that not only called her by Pagan title, they have also declared her Savior of the World, and worthy of worship. Here are just a few quotes from the dozens I have online…
Pius IX, Ubi Primum, 1849: "For God has committed to Mary the treasury of all good things, in order that everyone may know that THROUGH HER are obtained every hope, every grace, and ALL SALVATION. For this is his will, that we obtain everything through Mary."
Paul VI, Christi Matri. "The Church ... been accustomed to have recourse to that most ready intercessor, her Mother Mary ... For as St. Irenaeus says, she 'has become the cause of salvation for the whole human race"
John Paul II, Dives in Misericordia, 1980, quoting Lumen Gentium, "In fact, by being assumed into heaven she has not laid aside the office of salvation but by the manifold intercession she continues to obtain for us the grace of eternal salvation."
-Pope John Paul II again said, "Membership in the Militia means complete dedication to the Kingdom of God and to the salvation of souls through Mary Immaculate."
These popes, like all the others WORSHIP THE PAGAN QUEEN OF HEAVEN! And where you aware that John Paul II has 'dedicated himself and his Pontificate to the Queen of Heaven? He bears the letter "M" for Mary in his coat of arms. And his personal motto, which by the way is embroidered on the side of his robes in Latin are the following words: "TOTUS TUUS SUM MARIA", which in English translates to: "MARY, I'M ALL YOURS."
For those that think the "Totus Tuus Sum Maria" is a fictitious or bogus proclamation of Pope John Paul II, notice this excerpt from a Los Angeles Times News Article.
"By awarding the Virgin a central place in the cathedral's narrative, the archdiocese is keeping faith with a long, if fluctuating, Catholic and Orthodox tradition of devotion to Our Lady, a tradition enjoying a resurgence under Pope John Paul II. (The pope's personal motto, "Totus tuus sum, Maria," or "I am all yours, Mary," reflects his belief that the Virgin intervened to save his life from an assassin's bullet in 1981 so that he could help defeat European communism.)" -LATIMES.com Sept 1, 2002 By REED JOHNSON, Times Staff Writer
Notice how the theme Semiramus started is still active to this day? And I’m not just talking about the title “Queen of Heaven” either. The Pope continues to call his Queen the Virgin Mother. In fact, almost every Catholic I’ve ever known does this as well. Yet, was she a virgin ALL her life as Rome assumes? Or is there biblical evidence to prove otherwise? And before continuing, understand, I am not proclaiming Mary was not a virgin when she conceived Christ. That much is true according to the Word. The rest…? Well… let’s see..
So.. the Question is~ "Why does Catholic doctrine state that Jesus had no brothers and sisters and Mary was a lifelong virgin till the day she died"
- · "Is not this 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? Whence then hath this man all these things?" Matthew 13:55-56
This verse confirms people in Jesus' hometown watched Him grow up in that city helping His father in his trade as a carpenter. They remembered Jesus lived there as well as the fact that He had four brothers. PLUS they still have Jesus' SISTERS living among them. How many sisters did Jesus have? The Bible doesn't say, however it does hint He had more then one. Why are they still living there? Did they get married and settled down in their hometown to raise a family? It makes no difference. The fact of the matter is the Bible accurately records that Mary had many children.
- · "While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his BRETHREN stood without, desiring to speak with him. 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? and who are my BRETHREN? and he stretched forth his hand TOWARD HIS DISCIPLES, and said behold my mother and my BRETHREN!" Matthew 12:46-49
Many teachers of Catholic doctrine believe that Jesus called only those that believed in Him, His brethren. They do this to allow the lie of “Mary the ever virgin” to continue. That way, whenever the word BRETHREN was used, the Catholic believer is taught it usually means disciples only. This way also, no longer would they think it means blood brothers and sisters. However, did you notice the statement made to Jesus BEFORE He calls all in the room His brethren in that passage? A person comes to Jesus to tell Him that His mother and brethren are outside waiting on Him. Jesus took this opportunity to illustrate to the believers and apostles in the room that THEY are considered brethren now because they believe in Him. Rome uses this to make their lie work. However, this also allows us to expose the lie of Rome because now there are brethren outside the room as well. Jesus actually says in Matthew 19:29 "And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life." This verse is for believers that have to deal with unbelievers close to them. And those unbelievers are called BRETHREN not because they are believers, but because they are siblings! Does this verse not show Jesus calling those people that are not believers BRETHREN when He refers to them as those that we need to forsake for Him? Is that passage stating we must forsake fellow believers? Of course not. It is no different than today. People from all walks of life call there fellow man brothers or sisters. What of the term, brothers in crime? And yes, just like back then, we have brothers and sisters in Jesus. Just because Jesus explained that if they believe in Him they become His brethren, does not say that Jesus denied His siblings. He just gained more brethren on this day. It was those that believed on Him and His Truth in that room.
The Word also says…
- · "And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and WITH HIS BRETHREN." Acts 1:13-14
These verses are now calling the Apostles by name, and then Mary the mother of Jesus with His brethren are now mentioned. But wait a minute… Are not all in the upper room Brethren? Yes they are, it's just illustrated here that Jesus' Mother and siblings are in the room as well now. What better way to illustrate the fact that Jesus has an earthly family as well as His Church family. Think about it, all the Apostles are mentioned by name in that room, THEN Mary and the BRETHREN of Jesus are mentioned. Is this an attempt to show the two types of brethren? Indeed it is.
- · "After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him. Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand. His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest. For [there is] no man [that] doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world. For neither did his brethren believe in him.
This I must concede is my favorite verse on this subject. How can it not be realized that "His brethren" here is BLUNTLY speaking of siblings? The argument is completely mute for those that would claim, "brethren" equals ONLY "disciples" now. How? The BRETHREN in this passage are telling Jesus to be on His way and go perform His miracles so that His "DISCIPLES" will see it "For neither did his brethren (or siblings) believe in him." Even Matthew Henry in his comments on this passage says this…
Matthew Henry on ~ John 7:1-13
”The brethren or kinsmen of Jesus were disgusted, when they found there was no prospect of worldly advantages from him. Ungodly men sometimes undertake to counsel those employed in the work of God; but they only advise what appears likely to promote present advantages. The people differed about his doctrine and miracles, while those who favoured him, dared not openly to avow their sentiments. Those who count the preachers of the gospel to be deceivers, speak out, while many who favour them, fear to get reproach by avowing regard for them.”
The Word also says…
- · "But other of the apostles saw I none, save James THE LORD'S BROTHER." Galatians 1:19
How blunt can you get? Is this not an obvious verse? We found earlier in Matthew 13:55 that one of Jesus' brothers was named James, and here we see James is mentioned again as the Lord's Brother. But did you notice? First it stated “other of the Apostles saw I none.” And then it mentions James the brother of Christ. But aren’t all the Apostles brothers? Yes, in the faith they are, but here it is plain James is the blood brother of Jesus Christ!
By the way, this is the same James that was inspired by God to write the book of James in the New Testament. Truth is, James did eventually realize who is brother Jesus was. Oh, and by the way, it was just PROVEN that James was another child of Mary. On my site in the “RCC Exposed” section you will find a page entitled “The Burial Box of James.”
For months after this box was discovered the Vatican was silent! Numerous scientists authenticated the box as genuine to Rome’s dismay. Rome did all it could in the media to slam the story. Plus, reported on that same page, which was Newsletter first by the way, that Rome will have to come up with a MAJOR LIE to get out of this mess. Reason being, the lie of the “Ever Virgin Mother” was just proven false. This made the Vatican very angry! Rome did in fact eventually find someone to act as an authority and literally lie to debunk the burial box. However, they could only find one person. All the other scientists didn’t look at him as credible in the slightest sense. However, like a defense lawyer in a courtroom making an objectionable statement the Jury can hear, the damage was done. Many of the Catholic faithful believed their lying priests and the story was suddenly dropped from the media, and no more was heard. But for those that invesitage the truth, this placed a HUGE red flag on the Vatican that day. They KNOW they lied, and now they have PROOF.
Another verse says…
- · "And he knew her not tillshe had brought forth her FIRSTBORN son: and he called his name JESUS." Matthew 1:25
Did you notice that the Bible calls Jesus the firstborn son of Mary? Why would the infallible Word of God call Jesus the Firstborn if He supposed to be the one and only, or last-born child of Mary? According to Catholic doctrine this can't be. But I ask, how can Catholic doctrine call Mary a virgin until death when the Bible states the exact opposite numerous times? Did you also notice the word "till" in that verse? The verse preceding this one tells us that…
- · "Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son:"-Matthew 1:24,25
It seems rather plain here doesn’t it? Joseph went ahead and did as the Angel told him and married Mary regardless of what he thought about her. Then we see the Bible tells us Joseph "waited" to consummate the marriage "till she had brought forth her firstborn son" This easily proves Mary was no virgin. It is easy to say that her "firstborn" actually means she had MORE. And that declares openly that she had children other than Jesus. PLUS, the word “TILL” in that passage denotes Joseph did eventually consummate that marriage! That act alone proves she could never be an “ever virgin” as Rome calls her, and Semiramis concated.
On more obvious note to ponder... As blessed and loved as Mary was of God, do you honestly believe the Almighty and ever living God of all creation would punish her with a barren womb after submitting to His perfect will without question, and having His Son? You need to understand that it was considered a blessing to have children back then. Unlike today’s society with their millions of self centered flesh pleasing abortions. PLUS, would it not be considered sin on Mary's part to DENY Joseph's carnal desires towards his own wife? Is it not written in...
- · 1 Corinthians 7:3-5, "Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency."
For Rome to say Mary and Joseph never had relations as a husband and wife, is to say Mary was IN SIN! But since Rome has already been able to preach to their flock that the Bible is a dead letter and useless book, the people are unaware such words like these are in their Bibles proving Rome is lying. Which brings me unto the next method of deception Rome has been able to perform with Mary. And this too is warned of in the Bibles Rome has convinced their flock to put down.
PLEASE understand that I am sharing all this as a loving warning to all STRONG Catholics out there! I am not interested in the "wicked” ones that will send me hatefilled, vulgar emails packed with death threats. This warning goes out to those that have a heart for their God and a desire to please HIM and not man. There is an attack on the Catholic child that is directly from hell itself being perpetrated today. YOU are being targeted by Satan as prey for the flames of hell, and because sin is so attractive, he has blessed you with a religion that gives you permission to stay in sin, and still consider yourself Heaven bound. But that’s a whole nother topic! The attack I am getting at now has to do with the so called apparitions of Mary. Satan is attacking the biblical truth surrounding Mary so as to prevent people from seeing Christ as their only Saviour. Mary is the blessed Mother of Jesus Christ who is in fact BLESSED FOREVER above all women and there is no woman blessed as she! ALL GENERATIONS WILL CALL HER BLESSED as Luke puts it in Luke 1:48
Think of that for a moment. She is blessed, she is Mary, she is the woman God chose to raise His Son on Earth. He chose her because He knew she would do according to His Word. Commons sense affords us the reality that the Lord chose Mary because she was more apt to follow His Truth. With that in mind, listen to the words this so called “Mary” is saying to the Roman Catholic people in the form of a ghostly apparition. If you are a believer that Mary would never go against Biblical jurisprudence, or she would never do the exact opposite of what the Father in Heaven would have her do, then you too will understand that it is NOT Mary speaking these words. If so, the Father Himself would never approve of her, and therefore she would never have been called BLESSED BY ALL GENERATIONS as it is written in His Word. In 1917 the so called apparaition of Mary spoke these words...
"Only I can help you. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God”
Oh, and by the way, if you want to verify ANY of these statements you can go to the Roman Catholic website that posts all these so called “messages from Heaven” on the Fatima.org website as well as countless other sites.
These words of someone calling themselve’s “Mary” are in direct conflict with the Word of God that was spoken out of the mouth of Jesus Christ Himself!
· John 14:6, "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
The Word of God warns us that spirits will appear and claim they are from God, but what shall we do when they do this?
· 1 John 4:1, "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world."
And how to you TRY the spirits?
· Isaiah 8:20, "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them."
The Word of God PLAINLY stated that ALL generations will call Mary blessed! However, when I hear words like this coming from someone claiming to be Mary, I can longer call her blessed, right!? For if this was Mary, she would in no way be calling her Son, and Saviour, Jesus Christ a LIAR now would she? By saying that "Mary" is the "Only one that can help you" is actually saying quite bluntly that Jesus Christ the Saviour of the World CANNOT, and WILL NOT help you! THIS IS BLATANT ANTICHRIST TEACHING! This is MARY WORSHIP being suggested by someone, or something calling itself Mary. This was done first of course by Semiramis, the wife of Nimrod. It was later repeated as Jesus was speaking about demonic possession to those listening on. That’s right, the Bible records, what I consider a demonic mocking of Christ by a possessed women moments before He is crucified. It’s almost as if the demon in her was laughing at Christ and letting Him know what they were planning on doing to His Gospel truth once He returned to Heaven after His resurrection. What am I talking about?
· Luke 11:27, "And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked."
Like the “damsel” that was possessed that walked behind Paul mocking the Gospel Truths he preached, this woman is also referred to as a “CERTAIN” woman. So, what was Christ’s immediate response to this “certain” woman’s obvious mockery? Jesus said in the very next verse…
· Luke 11:28, “But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it."
Think of it, Jesus just finished speaking on how it is best to stay close to God once demons have been cast out, and this is proclaimed outloud! This is the first, and only time that I have found in the Bible that Satan is actually letting the cat out of the bag concerning his plans for the memory of Mary in the New Testament. This is an out loud proclamation in the Bible for MARY WORSHIP in as blunt a manner as any can muster! And our Lord and Saviour in His divine and gentle wisdom, lovingly rebukes that woman perfectly.
This woman was directly stating that MARY herself was worthy of worship over and above Jesus Christ Himself! Can you see what just happened here? The Creator Himself, is preaching about demonic possession and how it is best to serve the Creator God, when a VERY "flesh serving" proclamation is made by a "certain" woman stating it is a far better thing to worship His creation instead! Mary herself is in fact a created being, is she not? And Christ most assuredly is the Creator! What passage does this remind you of?
· Romans 1:24-27, "Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet."
Is this not Catholicism in a nutshell? They not only speak of Mary worship, but they embrace all that Babylon has to offer. Everything from worshiping of humans in statue form, to worship of the sun the moon and the stars. That passage in Romans is bluntly describing a Religion that will teach worship of the creature is far better then worship of the Creator that made those creatures in the first place! And to top it off, the passage states one of the end results of such a religion as this is that homosexual decadence will run rampant within it when they choose this path. Is not the Roman Catholic Vatican well known in modern day to house the largest known organized collection of Homosexuals known to man? No marriage is allowed for either priest or nun. Plus men must live with men in the rectories for priests, and women must live with women in the convents as nuns. It doesn’t get any plainer then this folks! This is a fertile growing field for homosexualty.
Ok, let’s get back to this demon calling itself Mary that is literally popping up all over the planet. There are apparitions of a demon claiming to be Mary in Fatima, Medjugorje, Hillside, and countless other areas around the World. Plus, you have sightings of Mary showing up in window panes, subway walls, burnt taco shells, trees, mirrors… seriously, the list of so called Marian apparitions is endless these days. And to make matters worse, whenever a sighting is reported, thousands of Catholics flock to the sight to worship it and await a miracle! I recall when a so called apparition was appearing in Highland Park Illinois back in the early 90’s. People would flock to that place and claim their rosary chains turned from steel, to pure gold. A friend of mine showed me his rosary and it did change! I also recall when that window had a leaky seal formed a milky stain on it that looked like Mary. Thousands of Catholics started kneeling and praying to it from all over the place. It got so bad, the Hospital had to cover it up, and then remove that window to stop the traffic jams! And still, the faithful Catholic people will state rather boldly they do not worship Mary.
I could very easily write an entire book on all the evidence that is available today to prove that it is NOT Mary the mother of Jesus, or even Jesus Christ Himself, that is appearing in Medjugorje, Bayside New York, Highland Park Illinois, Fatima, Lourdes, or countless other places. Maybe some day in the future the Lord will allow me to do just that. For now, I will share what is happening on a frequent basis in NewYork to give an idea of how bad it is.
The "Apparition" calling itself Mary, or "Our Lady of the Roses" as it prefers, has been relaying "Messages from Heaven" for all to read. Is this from God? How can we be sure? All we need to do is what the Bible says we must do when this occurs. It will reveal to us exactly who it is that is appearing to these people. Again, the Bible tells us very plainly that we should "believe not every spirit, but try (TEST) the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world." [1John 4:1] The Bible also warns us that in the end-times we will see an increase in demonic activity. The prophecy states that "they are the spirits of devils, working miracles," [Revelation 16:14] So I don’t doubt for a minute those rosarys turned to gold. The demons did it to convince the people. Just like the devil made the Sun dance in the sky in 1917 before thousands of people in Fatima.
You know what gets me here? The Bible does say demons will do this in the last days. And when it’s pointed out they are doing it, people shrug it off as if it’s not important, or not a prophesied event. The Catholics figure it isn’t a demon, and all the rest just think the Catholics are a bit strange is all. Both parties won’t admit they see demonic activity as is prophesied! Why is it people believe the Newspapers that men write over and above the Prophecy that God writes?
But don't take my word for it, lets take a look at what these "apparitions" are saying before we make a decision. We need to see if they "are of God", and the only way to see if they are is to see if they are consistent with what the Word of God says. Isaiah is very plain on that point! If they don’t speak according to the Word of God there is no light in them! Truth is, if they are truly bringing us messages from Heaven, then these messages will harmonize with the ultimate message. "The Bible."
I was driving down the road one day with two of my sons a few years ago when we noticed a billboard as big as life with huge bold letters proclaiming, "Mary Speaks to America!" It had an "800" phone number on it to call. So I jotted it down and headed home. A week or so after making the call I received an envelope packed with information from "Our Lady's Children in Maryland." There were three flyers with tons of "Messages from Heaven", along with 15 promises from Mary listed on one of them. It also contained a "blessed" rose petal in the package, which I promptly tossed in the garbage. I won’t go over all 15 promises of course, because most of them were that easy to see as lies. However, I would like to touch on two right off.
The Fifteen Promises of Mary to Christians Who Recite the Rosary:
Promise # 9 = "I shall deliver from purgatory those who have been devoted to the rosary"
Promise # 14 = All who recite the rosary are my sons, and brothers of my only son Jesus Christ."
Before going further, I have a page on the website that exposes the rosary as demonic. It’s in the “RCC Doctrines” section of the website. I go into graphic details about what it is, and what the Word has to say about it. For those of you that are not aware of what a rosary is, it is a Pagan beaded prayer chain that many other non-Christian religions use as well. What you do is pray a certain prayer on each bead of the chain, and between each series of beads you must also speak a prayer on the chain itself. Throughout the entire rosary you are to meditate on certain aspects of Christ’s life. However, according to Scripture, the Lord prefers we "use not VAIN REPETITIONS, as the heathen do" [Matthew 6:7]
So the rosary itself is not consistent with what the Word of God teaches for the method of prayer. Right off the bat we see this cannot be Mary speaking from Heaven, because Mary would not do something that would prove she is no longer blessed among all generations as the Bible stated she would be. Plus we also learn in the Word that "there is A GREAT GULF FIXED so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence." [Luke 16:26] So how could Mary deliver anyone out of anyplace? The Bible dosen't say that Mary is our deliverer, it says that "The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;" [2Samuel 22:2] Plus there is absolutely no mention of a place called purgatory anywhere in the Bible in the first place. If you have a computer with the Bible online try doing a search for the word "purgatory", you will find NOTHING.
Next we see that in promise #14 it states that Jesus is the ONLY SON of Mary. This too is in direct conflict with what the Word of God says about the family that Jesus grew up with. There are numerous verses that proves Jesus was indeed from a large family. As we learned earlier, Matthew 13:55-56 stated that Jesus not only had four brothers, He also had more than one sister! Because it also stated in that passage that “his SISTERS” (plural) were still among them in that city.
On one of the flyers it states that Mary says we should
"Wear the brown Scapular and other sacramentals." Also it states everyone should "-Keep the statues in your homes." -Bayside "The Lourdes of America" Jesus and Mary Speak to the World Through Veronica Lueken
In the Roman Church, whenever there is a statue, there is also a kneeler in front of it, which forces you to BOW before it. This so called statement from “Mary” is indeed a direct method of teaching the people of the world to break Commandment # 2, which plainly says,
- · Exodus 20:4-6, "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments."
A "graven image" and a statue, scapular, medal, sacramental, are all the SAME THING.IDOL’S, plain and simple. Did not Jesus say on the cross, "it is finished" in John 19:30? Jesus did NOT say, "It is finished...But wait a minute... My Mom will stop by in 1917, 1930, 1964, 1982, 1994, etc... to let you know what I am up to."
And for those of you that don’t know. A scapular is a small piece of fabric with a picture on one side of Simon Stock receiving the Scapular from a demon calling itself Mary, and on the other side of the scapular, you see in writing these words, “The wearer of this cloth will not suffer the flames of hell.” That’s right! It is taught in Roman Catholicism, that what Jesus did on the cross was not enough to keep you from Hell. You must also wear a peace of cloth around your neck to confirm your salvation.
I used to wear these things everyday! In fact, you were taught never to take it off! When it got old and ragged I would buy a knew one, bring it to a priest, have it blessed, and then put it around my neck. Then and only then was I able to remove the old one! In fact, when Pope John Paul II was shot, he insisted they do NOT remove his scapular when he went in for surgery!
Mary would NEVER tell people to go against the Word of God. In fact, when Jesus was at the marriage in Cana of Galilee, Mary approached Him to help the servants of the wedding regarding the lack of wine. In John 2:5, it says
- John 2:5, "His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it."
Why would Mary say you must do as Jesus says in the Bible, and then later appear to say the exact opposite in an apparition? Makes no sense correct? According to Biblical jurisprudence, this “spirit” FAILED the test! This is yet another reason Rome does all they can to keep people out of the Bible. It is LOADED with tons of small as well as large proofs throughout it that Roman Catholicism is a religion inspired by Satan himself.
The demon calling itself Mary also said this…
"Wear any size crucifix that you can find. It does no have to be big or small, but an image of My Son" Directives from Heaven From the vision of "-Our Lady, Sept. 7 1985"
Once again, the Commandment #2 is suggested to be broken. Notice the actual use of the word "image" by this demon! That is a direct attack on the Commandment itself! And it gets worse! These so called apparitions have a new demon showing up now, and he is claiming to be Jesus Christ HIMSELF!
"You must keep them upon you, with a crucifix. We demand a crucifix. Directives from Heaven From the vision of "-Jesus, June 18, 1987"
Here it seems the apparition of "Jesus" is demanding that all Catholics break the Commandments that He Himself taught all Christians to keep in both Old and New Testament theology! Is not the definition of sin in both the Old and New Testaments “transgression of the LAW?” Does not Jesus say with His own mouth in John 15:10, "If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love." So how is it possible that He would now tell everyone to wear an "image, or likeness of Himself" when His Bible tells us that we should not do that?
The Lord blesses all with a wonderfull and easy to understand clue to keep in mind. The Bible plainly says, "For I am the LORD, I change not;" in Malachi 3:6 Is this not a wonderful way to "test" the spirits that are popping up all over the place? Why would the Lord tell us one thing in His Bible, and another thing in some "apparition" in NewYork, Fatima, or Lourdes? Don't think that this is just some people playing a prank on everyone for reasons of financial gain. These "apparitions" are very real! The Bible says very simply that "Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light" in 2 Corinthians 11:14 Satan does indeed use this method to deceive many! As a matter of fact, the devil will use even more miraculous methods for all to see very soon. I would suggest keeping you eyes on both Rome as well as Islam in the coming days. Benny Hinn is also a good candidate for graphic demonic activity. You can count on it! Satan knows his time is short, he needs to be more persuasive as the end gets closer, and he will pull out the big guns because prophecy CONFIRMS THIS!
This next demonic utterance is VERY annoying to me to say the least…
"I wish at this time to stress anew to you that many must go forth as angels of light - angels certainly, My children, without wings, but no less an angel." Roses article "Go forth as angels of light" p. 3 From the vision of "-Jesus June 18, 1994"
Kind of makes you wonder if anyone is reading their Bibles now doesn't it. How can so many fall for such lies when the Word of God has it all written down well in advance in the Scriptures that it will happen this way? If everyone knew the truth about where people go when they die, the Devil would have absolutely no power to deceive in this way. Everyone would know it's not Mary standing there because it is well stated in the Word she is IN THE GRAVE awaiting the resurrection. I go into far more detail about that biblical fact on my “Life after Death” page in the “Bible Truths” section of the website.
For the Devil to use terms like, "angels of light", "purgatory", or "image", proves he has every confidence that those he deceives have no clue this is bluntly warned of in the Bible. It's almost as if he is showing off and proving his control over the population to keep them out of the Bible.He’s literally mocking the Lord here! This stuff is first grade reader type warnings for everyone to see, yet, if one refuses to simply look in the Bible they won't see it. That’s why I share these facts with Catholics because I know they are NOT stupid! They were simply lied to. These biblical facts were never told to them. When they honestly investigate this stuff they eventually realize IT’S TRUE, and they leave that Church!
By the way… How does the Lord God feel about His children IGNORING His Bible?
- · HOSEA 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Now there are some other aspects of Mary worship that many are completely unaware of. Since it is now common knowledge that the Pope is not only the one spearheading the European Union, he is also the one controlling it. Even his "Catholic" suggestions regarding their Constitution has been agreed upon and written into the fabric of their law. Those of us that understand Bible prophecy, especially end time events understand completely as to what's happening on that Continent. It is the testing grounds for the One World Government. Signs of Mary worship, and Roman Catholic influence are everywhere! Take for example the European flag. Notice the 12 stars and blue background? BOTH those stars and that color blue represent faith in Mary as Queen of Heaven. Even the Euro sports the twelve stars of Mary, and yes, that is Pope John Paul II's image on that Euro coin! He is the main reason you see Mary all over the place. He is one of the Vatican's most vocal advocate of Marian Worship to date! Mary is most assuredly an important player in this one world government solely because the ROMAN Catholic, Queen of Heaven is their goddess. Just as the Caesars of Rome, the popes today flaunt their Pagan gods as a show of forced worship into the very fabric of everyday life for all they rule over. Notice the following paintings of Mary in the Roman Catholic church. These are actual "Mary prayer cards" you can purchase from Rome. This is a list of pics I placed on my "Do Catholics worship Mary" page on the site many years ago. Notice how almost every one of them display the 12 stars around Mary's head in the form of a Roman/Pagan halo!
The Queen of Heaven is a VERY important player in the end time Global deceptions. Count on "Mary" showing up even more frequently, and expect to see a VIDEO TAPE of her apparitions being broadcast around the World soon! This is something Rome MUST do if they want to ensure all religions call her Queen! Is it any wonder Muslims look to "Our Lady of Fatima" as a genuine source of truth? The Antichrist that controls Rome not only designed this demonic lie, the Muslim faith itself was started by the Vatican itself. More on that fact soon!
