|Pope Beatification: A few weeks ago we reported: Vatican to remove Pope John Paul II from catacomb burial chamber into St. Peter’s Basilica sanctuary. They would conduct a Beatification ceremony followed by three days of viewing for visitors to pray to Pope John. The Vatican’s spokesperson said the event of 01 May 2011 would be televised worldwide on every major network and expected billions of viewers and visitors.
—— Well, May arrived and the ceremony aired— BUT, from 1:00 AM to 4:00 AM only and broadcast just on CNN and one non-news cable channel here in the U.S.; no NBC, CBS, MSNBC, Fox News, HLN News, et cetera. There were no repeats during the next few days or evenings, just vaguely reported during local news broadcasts.
—— So much for all major networks and airing at a reasonable hour for other countries. Sure it would not have been live, as it was during those wee hours; but, it would have been easier to view when not half asleep. The billions of viewers the Vatican expected must have fallen short of its projected numbers, if only due to the early hours.
—— RDK watched the four-hour formality, although it seemed to be conducted more as an Easter mass. Of Pope John, Pope Benedict XVI did say they were hoping for a second miracle by John Paul so his sainthood could be confirmed quickly. Nothing monumental happened and we have heard not one peep since then: no reruns during the day or early evening on any day following Sunday the first of May, nothing at all. Of course, this does not mean something will not happen; or, at least appear to happen. We can say that RDK did not stand alone in stating we felt the Vatican might try to make it appear that John Paul was miraculously raised from the dead. Several remnant groups expressed the same possibility on the Internet’s largest social network Face Book.
—— All in all, the service itself was lackluster in traditional rituals that took place in a sanctuary. Later, the unveiling of a huge portrait of John Paul was displayed on the outer Vatican wall next to the balcony used for traditional Sunday messages and from where Benedict acknowledged the visual rendering, recognized the photographer and reconfirmed that John Paul was the most beloved Pope of all time. Thereafter, he delivered the expected Sunday message to thousands gathered in the courtyard below.
—— Obviously and henceforth it is a waiting game until a dramatic event makes global news; whether it be John Paul responsible for another miracle similar to the French Nun who said she had prayed to him after his death and was healed of Parkinson’s disease, OR John Paul miraculously rises from his coffin, OR something equally dramatic occurs that would draw billions of people to Catholic Churches around the world. If or when it does, we immediately will advise our brethren; albeit, there is nothing of the like mentioned in prophecy. ~~ article end
Member Comment— “Extra Oil: What Is an Heretic”
—— As David Wilkerson said in his Vision, there will be persecution by the moral majority: it had already started in the 60’s! In the Vision (1973), David Wilkerson was told by the Lord to reveal what he had been shown in the vision; but, he was inclined to remain silent, or afraid to reveal that vision— which is very similar to what Ellen White revealed about the end times, the last generations just before the second coming of Jesus with his Angels. What I want to emphasize, is the part where he is telling about an earthquake coming to the USA, in a region not known for great earthquakes, but it will be on the extremely high end of the Richter Scale, with much loss of life and destruction of that region, setting off aftershocks up and down the West Coast. An earthquake will precede this quake— in Japan!
Angel or Eagle:
While RDK has, for many years, been aware of various changes made to scriptures in a number of newer and new Bible versions, recently it came to our attention of one such damaging change made in Rev. 8:13. The modifying might seem miniscule or irrelevant to some readers; but, we caution everyone to remember God’s Word instructing us that one lie in the midst of His Truth renders the whole a lie.
—— We begin with Rev. 8:13 as it appears in the Authorized King James (AKJV) Bible, the only version we know translated from the ancient Old and New Testament scrolls and only compared to the Vulgate and its offshoots. AKJV is the only translation by divine inspiration that made it possible to fulfill the prophecy of Rev. 10:7 (Sardis era that removed the seals from the latter of Daniel, all of Revelation prophecies followed by fulfilling Rev. 10:11 Philadelphia age of “teaching again, etc.”). As a result, the AKJV unequivocally guarantees God’s absolute Truth in perfect harmony.
—— (Rev. 8:13) “And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, ‘Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters [people] of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!'”
—— Now, for the same verse in the New International Version (NIV): “As I watched, I heard an eagle that was flying in midair, call out in a loud voice, ‘Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels.'”
—— The New Living Translation (NLT) replaced angel with eagle and replaced three woe with three terror. The New Century Version (NCV) replaced angel with a single eagle and changed three woe to three trouble. Oddly, the examiners of the discrepancies referred to the eagle as disturbed eagles, in the plural likely because they had reviewed three Bible versions thus illogically three eagles; although, we do not understand why they deemed the eagle, or even the angel, disturbed when the AKJV does not say or even imply by Greek connotation that the angel was disturbed. The woes, however, were disturbing. The use of other three angels made the change even more illogical since the first voice had been changed to that of an eagle; grammatically correct would have been an eagle and three angels absent the word other.
—— Revelation was written in Greek; so, we consulted the Greek Dictionary for the Greek angel and eagle taken from the scripture-in-point. The angel definition is angel and its derivative word is defined messenger, to carry forth, bring, take to, etc. Eagle in Greek meant an eagle, the connotation being a bird: it was not derived from any other Greek or Hebrew word. The ancient words lend no understanding of why angel was changed to eagle. We suspect it was Satan’s way to prove that people do not read or study the Bible for self, simply accept whatever spews from their chosen pulpit.
—— The angel, or eagle used in the above three versions inspected, is merely God’s messenger delivering to man a dire prophecy about three events to be carried out by the last three of seven angels bearing woes: the last three woes began in A.D. 538 and continued through A.D. 1798. Each of these three woes consumed the 1260 years prophecy, which years were the church ages of Thyatira, Sardis and Philadelphia. It is good to understand that the various prophecies often overlap time spans.
—— Satan and his angels were cast to earth permanently in B.C. 536 (Rev. 12:4,9), which sheds light on why the world had become exceedingly evil during the short span of 102 years, A.D. 538. In that time Christ’s birth, death and ascension to heaven as well as Papal Rome’s firm establishment and great power had occurred. Widespread evil, even among the Jews, was enough so that God was ready to warn Satan’s great whore of great wealth and dominance in the known world.
—— Not heeding God’s three warnings (woes), He then set up the whore for her spiritual fall by opening Daniel and Revelation for interpretation; which Satan hoped to prevent, knowing that her real identity and that of her daughters would be revealed: giving mankind opportunity to hear and heed God’s Truth. And, so it was by the completion of the three woes at the end of the Sardis era, the year’s end A.D. 1843, that Philadelphia preached Truth one more time in A.D. 1844 and ended at the close A.D. 1990— the 1260-yr prophecy finally fulfilled.
—— All relevant prophecies fulfilled to the letter and timing, earth’s end near:
1. Israel’s 70-yr captivity ended, B.C. 606 –538
2. 81-yrs for final permit to rebuild road, Jerusalem and Temple, B.C. 536 – 445
3. 49-yrs road completed, B.C. 457 to 408
3. 434-yrs rebuild Jerusalem, walls and Temple finished, B.C. 408 to A.D. 26
3. 7-years Jesus-Stephen: above #3’s = Daniel’s 490-yr prophecy ends, A.D. 27 to 34
—— Ephesus era 66-yrs A.D. 31 to 100; Smyrna age 223-yrs A.D.100 to 323; Thyatira
—— 1260-yrs Christ’s remnant in wilderness A.D. 538 to 1798;
4. 3.5-years Revelation’s 2-witnesses/France, omen ends, A.D. 1793 (Jan) to 1797 (Jun)
5. 1260-years ended, Satan’s time to deceive world, A.D. 538 to 1798
6. 1290-years fulfilled, Vatican’s spiritual fall, A.D. 508 to 1798
7. 1335-years completed, A.D. 508 to 1844— Sardis era 46-yrs, interpret prophecies,
—— seek God’s Truth, A.D. 1798 to 1844
8. 1810-yrs for Gentiles, A.D. 34 to 1991— sixth era Philadelphia 147-yrs, latter rains to
—— preach Truth again, seal saints, man’s court trial, clean sanctuary, A.D. 1844 to
—— 1991 ends; Laodicea era 20-yrs, warn lukewarm, teach cold, Christ returns,
—— A.D. 1991 to Christ’s return in the clouds
9. 2300-yr prophecy fulfilled, B.C. 457 to A.D. 1844
In January 1991 the final church age began, Laodicea; thus now we wait for only Christ’s quick return, not in prophetic time but literal time: for all prophecies are fulfilled thus Revelation moved into literal time.
On Topic: Fox News 09-2008, Associated Press, “Vatican Official Defends Evolution Against “Useless” Creationism”
—— VATICAN CITY: A professor at a Vatican-sponsored university expressed dismay Tuesday that some Christian groups reject the theory of evolution — implicitly criticizing the literal interpretation of the Bible. Further emphasizing the official Catholic stance, a Vatican official restated the Church position that evolution is not incompatible with faith. Both men spoke at a press conference ahead of a March event aimed at fostering dialogue between religion and science, and appraising evolution 150 years after Charles Darwin’s landmark “On the Origin of Species.
—— The forum is being organized by Rome’s prestigious Gregorian Pontifical University, which is highly influential in Vatican circles, and by the University of Notre Dame in the U.S. state of Indiana.
—— Popes going back to the mid-20th century have “recognized the scientific value of the theory of biological evolution,” Gennaro Auletta, who teaches philosophy of science at the Gregorian, told reporters. “Greater understanding and assimilation of such subject matter by clergy and faithful has been hoped for. I would like to point out that unfortunately one cannot say that about the faithful of all Christian confessions, as media reports indicate.” Auletta appeared to be referring to stories about fundamentalist churches that maintain a literal interpretation of the Bible, including the belief that the world was created in six days.
—— Monsignor Gianfranco Ravasi told reporters: “One thing is sure. Evolution is not incompatible with faith. Creationism from a strictly theological view makes sense, but when it is used in scientific fields it becomes useless.” Quoting the late Pope John Paul II, Ravasi said that “evolution can no longer be considered a hypothesis.”
—— Pope Benedict XVI warned last week against fundamentalists’ literal interpretations of the Bible. The pontiff told a gathering of intellectuals and academics in Paris that the structure of the Bible “excludes by its nature everything that today is known as fundamentalism. In effect, the word of God can never simply be equated with the letter of the text.”
—— Benedict, in a book published last year, praised scientific progress, but cautioned that evolution raises philosophical questions that science alone cannot answer. In the book, he stopped short of endorsing what is known as “intelligent design.” Intelligent design proponents believe that living organisms are so complex they must have been created by a higher force, rather than evolving from more primitive forms.
—— Vienna Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, an influential cardinal considered close to Benedict, has condemned a U.S. federal court decision that barred a Pennsylvania school district from teaching intelligent design in biology class. Schoenborn has said he wants to correct what he says is a widespread misconception that the Catholic Church has given blanket endorsement to Darwin’s theories.
—— It is easy to comprehend Rome’s purpose: disprove the Bible as we know it, destroy all Bibles so people will have to depend on the Vatican’s Vulgate— the great whore’s version of God’s Bible— and the people would have to trust that says what God says. Of course, the Vulgate does not agree with God’s Bible, else there would be no reason for Rome to want all Bibles destroyed. Her excuse for such a blasphemous act? “Only the Church has the authority to teach the Bible and interpret its meanings. The Church is the only way of being assured of getting God’s Truth.” ~ end Associated Press article
As I know that God has my best interest at heart, so He has yours. Keep the faith, pray unceasingly in these perilous times, watch the clouds while remaining calm and harming no man; for death has no power over us. If it be that we die before Christ arrives, we will be resurrected to fly to our Father’s home.
Much love and Prayers,
