The Most Amazing Bible Prophecies That Will Blow You Away Comes To Light Revealing Who In The Church Will Join The Antichrist And Who Will Not

By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Sunday Special)

Imagine the shocker when you think that you have prophecy all figured out to only find out that you missed that one crucial word which crumbles not just your understanding of prophecy, but your entire theology. Next time you run into someone who acts as if they figured it all out when they throw a verse or two at you, have them do a search of these nine lethal words in the Bible which renders their entire theology, modern commentaries they use, historic revisions and centuries of reformation theology to become completely obsolete.

What you are about to read will blow you away:

THE FIRST LETHAL WORD IN PSALM 132: “AND”
You might consider the word “and” insignificant until you run into Psalm 132 when David says that the Ark of the Covenant is assumed to heaven with God:

Go up Lord, to the place of your rest [heaven], you and the ark of your might!”. (Psalm 132:8)

Do you see this “and”? This one word alone renders countless interpretations, books, websites, reformations and commentaries that claim that the Ark is Christ becomes worthless.

None of these commentaries can answer a simple Jesus-style question: how do you paint the Ark as symbolic of Jesus if both, this Ark and Jesus went up to heaven?

This word “and” leaves no room to maneuver. The only option is that God assumed into heaven a literal box called “the Ark of the Covenant”.

But this is impossible, especially when Revelation 21:2–3 declares that “the dwelling place of God is with man.” God in heaven does not dwell with a box anymore. That plus the whole context of the Book of Hebrews and Jeremiah 3:16 was that God was done with such things.

Some might argue that this prophecy pertains to the literal Ark and that David is simply going together with the Ark to the Temple in Jerusalem’s Mount Zion.

But this too is impossible. The text clearly puts this matter to rest:

“Because Lord Jehovah is pleased in Zion and he chose it a dwelling place. This is my rest to an eternity of eternities; here I shall sit because I desired it.”

There is no question this is the heavenly not earthly Mount Zion where the Ark resides. The Bible even confirms this:

And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament (Revelation 11:19)

Is this mount Zion on earth? Never.

But it even gets better when we examine translations of Psalms 132:8 from the Septuagint:

Arise, O Lord, into thy resting place: thou and the ark, which thou hast sanctified [made holy, sinless]. (Psalm 132:8)

Did the Jews mistranslate the Bible from Hebrew to Greek? Impossible. They understood that this ark was protected from sin “sanctified”.

All this leaves us with only one option: the Ark is not Christ or a box but the Woman Who housed Christ in her womb.

Why then would it make any sense to accept the Ark-Box and reject the Ark-Mother?

Even the first living savior of Israel, Moses, came in an “ark” (Exodus 2:5) and in Noah’s day, who mocked his mighty Ark where the ones consumed by the flood.

How one can find truth is simple: see what the world abhors the most and you will find what God loves the most. God sent angels to the most abhorred of society, poor shepherds, and chose to be born in a lowly place: Bethlehem.

But within the same Psalm lays more lethal words no one pays attention to:

THE SECOND AND THIRD LETHAL WORDS IN PSALM 132 ARE “EPHRATAH” AND “YA’AR”
Protestant commentaries are mystified about this Psalm since the Ark was never placed in Bethlehem. But the text insists it was in a strange place called “Ya’ar”:

“Lo, we heard of it [the Ark] at [Bethlehem] Ephratah: we found it in the fields of Ya’ar” (Psalm 132:6)

Hearing about the Ark being in “Ephratah” and then discovering about it in “Ya’ar” is unheard of. Scholars attempt to solve the riddle. Barnes Notes is stunned:

“There is no mention in the history of the fact that the ark was “heard of” at Ephrata, or that it was ever there. The name Ephrata – אפרתה ‘ephrâthâh – is applied”.

Then Cambridge Bible links Kiriath-jearim as this “Ephrathah” and that “Ya’ar” is in the neighbourhood of Kiriath-jearim where the Ark had rested for many years in the house of Abinadab (1 Samuel 7:1-2).

But this is impossible, Kiriath-jearim is way too far north of Jerusalem and it is not Ephratah. That plus  Kiriath-jearim is on a hill where the text strictly says that Ya’ar is in the “Fields of Ya’ar” a field not a hill.

In fact, what most do not know is that Psalm 132 was speaking of the angelic annunciation of the birth of the Savior according to Luke’s gospel. During my youth I spent all my summers in the Fields of Ya’ar which was known from the time of St. Helena who marked it.

I shall show with pin-point accuracy that it was Mary (not a box) Who finally rested in Bethlehem Ephratah to give birth. The moment the child was born at the dawning of the day, the angels pronounced this birth at the fields of Ya’ar.

This place was known throughout history as the Fields of the Shepherds (Shepherd’s Fields).

This is where an angelic host announced to the shepherds instructing them at dawn (when it was still dark) to go up to Bethlehem Ephratah to see the birth of Christ where they also found His Ark (Mary).

Today anyone can visit the village of Beit Sahar (House of the Dawn, my own birthplace) in the vicinity of Bethlehem to the east. Beit Sahar (today pronounced Beit Sahour) is just a stone throw east of the Nativity where Christ was born and where our clan Shoebat owned land. This can even be confirmed from the municipality of Beith Sahour:

This site is known locally as “Isyar” [Is-Yaar] and is located 1 km north of the Greek Orthodox Shepherds’ Field … over a cave in which it is believed the shepherds’ lived.

Here’s a tour where you can see the the wooded area just as the text demands “fields of the woods” including the caves of the Shepherds:

But the name of this place today has a prophetic significance since the Ark was carried at the Dawn in Hebrew is “Sahar” (to stay up till the Dawn) signifying the victory over Israel’s enemies when Joshua went roundabout at Dawn circumambulating around Jericho seven times as the text states: “they rose early, at the dawn of day, and marched around the city in the same manner seven times” (Joshua 6:15).

But this time, this Ark (Mary) signified victory over sin and at dawn, while still dark, victory was announced at the Fields of Ya’ar because Christ was announced to the Shepherds “we heard of it at Bethlehem” in the Field of Yaar, translated as ‘Field of the Forrest‘.  The King James renders it this way: “Lo, we heard of it at Ephrathah: we found it in the fields of the woods.” We from Bethlehem can even pin-point it. Its the only little forestry area in the Fields of the Shepherds in Beit Sahour, Bethlehem-Ephratah.

Artwork at Is-yaar (the Forrest Field, Shepherd’s Fields) commemorating the very spot the angels came to announce the birth of Christ by St. Mary (the Ark) in Bethlehem

The place was marked by St. Helena the mother of the future Emperor Constantine the Great (reigned 306–337). In the fifth century a Byzantine monastery at the forrest woods of (Ya’ar) we find a Franciscan chapel and a cave where the Shepherd’s would stay at which I attended daily during summer at the nearby YMCA as a member of the Young Men’s Christian Association (I’ve been destined to become “Christian”).

Ya’ar means ‘forrest’ and the name still stands “Esh-Yaar” (IsYaar) just as our village municipality renders the name which is preserved till today and is known since St. Helena as the place where the Shepherds heard of Mary [the Ark] being in Bethlehem Ephratah and discovered about it in the fields of Ya’ar. Esh-Yaar would mean the Fire of Yaar David’s mighty warrior from Bethlehem.

The names passed down by tradition, the archeological site and its history makes a compelling case this is speaking of Mary giving birth to Christ. By this, Psalms 132 becomes a prophecy regarding the announcement of the birth of the savior, something no modern commentary even considers. But once Psalm 132 is cross-referenced with the rest of scripture it becomes a compelling case that the Ark was Mary and now the Apocalypse becomes clear as we shall see.

But there is even more, Psalm 132 speaks of Mary’s womb as this Ark.

THE FOURTH LETHAL WORD IN PSALM 132: “WOMB”
But Psalm 132 even packs more secrets, something no modern commentary even considers. It declares the Ark bringing forth the Messiah will be coming from “David’s womb” and not “David’s loins” as Protestant bibles translate. Author and expert, Fr Christopher P. Kelley, DD brought to my attention the major mistranslation in Psalm 132:11:

“The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.” (Psalm 132:11 KJV)

But the Hebrew word they translate as “body” is “Beten” (Womb) and since men do not have wombs they translated it “of the fruit of thy body,” or “of the fruit of thy loins“.

Only the Catholic Douay Rheims translates it correctly:

“The Lord hath sworn truth to David, and he will not make it void: of the fruit of thy womb I will set upon thy throne.” (Psalm 132:11, in DRB is 131:11)

But again, the Hebrew word they translated for ‘body’ or ‘loins’ is “Beten” which can only mean “womb”.

Beten can never mean “body” or “loins”! Impossible. Not in a million years.

The verse mystified translators. Even Strong’s could not escape it explaining that Beten is “the belly,” “especially the womb” “as they are born, within, womb” “being female member” yet they apply the wrong translation.

But Beten here is “womb”

Anti-Catholic translators wanted nothing to do with a Psalm that revealed the Ark had a literal womb.

The verse was not speaking of a descendant in the male line, but in the female line.

Next time you talk about the ‘lying media’ think of the ‘lying commentaries’ and the ‘lying translations’ most run to for the womb of their comfort.

No modern commentary can escape this lethal flaw. Throughout scripture when it came to men, God used “loins”: “kings shall come out of thy loins” (Genesis 35:11), “thy son that shall come forth out of thy loins” (1 Kings 8:19), “For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him” (Hebrews 7:10), “thy son that shall come forth out of thy loins” (1 Kings 1:19) 

And when it came to women God usually used “womb”: “And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb” (Genesis 25:23), “he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren” (Genesis 29:31), “loved Hannah: but the LORD had shut up her womb” (1 Samuel 1:5), “of my mother’s womb” (Job 1:21) …

Except of course only when it came to Psalms 132, God strictly used womb only for King David because this was the virgin birth and is why the ancient Jews recognized this and translated “virgin” instead of “maiden”.

Now the prophecy is not only the announcement of the birth of Messiah by Mary, but it is also a prophecy of the virgin birth and the assumption of Mary that so many reject.

The Septuagint which was held by Jews at the time to be “more inspired” than the Hebrew text, because of the miracle of its translation by devout men empowered by the Holy Spirit translated Beten correctly as “womb”. These added depth and specificity to the prophecy of Isaiah and in the Psalms to indicate a virgin birth and is why St. Jerome translating from the Septuagint to the Latin Vulgate had no issue with writing “she shall crush your head“.

The NETS translation of the book of Psalms based primarily on the edition of Alfred Rahlfs, Psalmi cum Odis from the Septuagint is another good translation of the Psalms which even pronounces the names as I am accustomed to in Bethlehem where David is properly pronounced Dauid (Dawid). Most are unaware that the sixth letter of the Hebrew alphabet is a “w/u” and not a “v”:

The Lord swore to Dauid [Dawid] the truth, and he will never annul it: “Of your belly’s fruit I will set on your throne.” (Psalms 132:11 NETS)

Here too it is not ‘loins’, the Hebrew Beten (womb) is very clear. For centuries even King David’s name is mispronounced.

Even Elizabeth’s famous description of Mary’s son Jesus in Luke 1:42, it says: “the fruit of thy womb” which perfectly matches the Septuagint version in Psalm 132:11:

ὁ   καρπὸς τῆς κοιλίας σου—Luke 1:42 “blessed is the fruit of thy womb”  (to Mary)

ἐκ καρποῦ τῆς κοιλίας σου—Psalm 132:11 LXX “of the fruit of thy womb” (to David)

This is why Mary sang a psalm of praise to God. This would have been Psalm 132. This is why in Revelation 11:19 the Ark of the Covenant is seen in God’s temple and then immediately following (Rev 12:1) it describes a pregnant woman clothed with the sun and moon under her feet.

And since David has no womb, signifying a virgin birth of a Messiah born of a daughter of David, an Ark that is ‘sanctified’ (sinless) and while a box-ark never rested in Bethlehem, but that a virgin gave birth in Bethlehem, to even hint at the angelic announcement in Luke and then this Virgin (Ark) is assumed to heaven as a separate being from the Messiah, makes Psalm 132 to be the most significant messianic prophecy in the entire scripture.

Yet no Protestant quotes it. None.

The laws of probability would make it impossible to have all this by mere chance. I did not convert to Catholicism easily. It took years worth of struggle and much painstaking digging for wells in the Word of God. In the end I found wells.

The ancient translators of the Septuagint where not Catholic either, but they knew better and is probably why they translated Almah (maiden) as “virgin” in Isaiah since they linked the seed of the woman (not man) with Psalm 132:11 ‘a womb of David’s descendant’.

All this explains why when it comes to Genesis 3:15 Catholics are content with the following:  ‘I will put enmity between your seed [Satan] and the seed of the woman [Eve].  She will crush your head [Mary] and you will strike her heel.’

But Scripture reveals that the crushing of Satan’s head is through Christ.  However, King David lodged a stone pellet into Goliath’s head and while ultimately this was brought about by the power of Jesus it is likewise done through Mary David’s descendant.

In a sense, God is saying to Satan, “while you thought you triumphed over a woman [Eve], it is through a woman [Mary – the New Eve] that I will crush your head” and is why the Old Testament includes stories of women who foreshadow this head-crushing blow ; Judith 13:4-9 we read of Judith cutting off Holofernes’s head, Judges 4:21 Jael kills Sisera by driving a tent peg through his temple; Judges 9: 50–55 Abimelech is killed when a woman drops a millstone on his head.

Just one word “Beten” renders all translations except the Septuagint as ‘found wanting’.

Mary is of David. This cannot be denied. As Fr. Kelley elaborated:

“None can say that St Irenaeus did not know the Scriptures! The “New Shoot” from the “stump of Jesse” is through David’s son, Nathan. None from that line had ever sat upon the Throne of Daivd in Jerusaelm. Maryam’s line from David is through Nathan (– named for the Prophet who caught David in his sin)! (Lk. 3:31) “Heli” appears to be a “nickname” form of Joachim, her father, who is thus the “father-in-law” of Joseph (cf. Lk 3:23). Of course, St Elizabeth declared, “blessed is the Fruit of thy Womb” to Maryam, when she came to visit (Lk 1:42). She then uses an expression that will escape many who do not understand the Jewish reverence for the Sacred Name: “Why is this [privilege] granted to me that the Mother of my LORD should come to me?” (1:43) A Jew of that time would never use the term, “LORD”, except for God. Elizabeth is declaring plainly that MARYAM is the MOTHER OF GOD, come in the Flesh, within her Womb. [See also 2Sam.6:9 – where David asks a similar question — in reverent fear!] Maryam stays “three months” in the home of the priest Zachariah & his wife Elizabeth (certainly long enough to care for her in childbirth, and attend St John’s Circumcision). (Lk 1:56)

This fulfills the prefiguration when David put the Ark of the Covenant aside in the home of Obed-Edom (a Levitical priest) for three months (2Sam.6:11). All could see that the home of Obed-Edom was “Blessed” by the Presence of the Ark. Then David no longer feared the Ark, but proceeded — with more care this time — to take it up to Jerusalem.

The Ark contained three things (Hebrews 9:4): The Jar of Manna (Bread of Heaven), Aaron’s Rod (Sign of High Priesthood), & Tables of the Law (God’s Word written by His Finger on Stone). Now Maryam’s Womb contained Him Who Is the Bread of Heaven, the Great High Priest, & the Word of God made Flesh.”

And the first Christians completely understood Psalm 132. Gregory the Wonder Worker (c. 213–c. 270) wrote:

“Let us chant the melody that has been taught us by the inspired harp of David, and say, ‘Arise, O Lord, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy sanctuary.’ For the Holy Virgin is in truth an ark, wrought with gold both within and without, that has received the whole treasury of the sanctuary” (Homily on the Annunciation to the Holy Virgin Mary).

All this combined is the accurate interpretation instead of what came in the 19th century attributing the Ark to strictly portray Christ. No, it is St. Mary Who housed the Christ, the Manna from heaven, the Great High Priest and the Word of God made Flesh.

God does not operate in a vacuum. The Ark was the womb containing Jesus, the bread of life come down from heaven (John 6:41) God is about life and not boxes. Man can only make boxes while only God can become man.

Someone is out to deceive the world alluding that the Ark is strictly symbolic of Christ. They painted the Ark as if it signified deity and by that they inadvertently sanctified and even deified Mary while they accused the only remaining two lampstands; the Catholics and Orthodox of the very thing they themselves were guilty of: the worship of Mary.

All the talk of the Ark being “acacia wood [which] symbolized our Lord’s humanity. The gold overlay denoted His deity” is simply that the wood symbolized our Mother’s humanity and the gold overlay denoted her purity not being prone to sin.

Today only two poles carry her; one Orthodox and the other Catholic. These are the only two who can enter the temple, participate in the perpetual sacrifice and are measured for testing and persecution while all others who are in the outer court are given to Antichrist to tread under foot.

Remember, there is no longer a physical temple and all prophecy that speaks of the temple speak of the true church in the altar.

The Virgin Mary is the living shrine of the Word of God, Christ. Therefore, she is the Ark of the New and Eternal Covenant. The problem with most modern interpretation of prophecy is their ignorance on the nature of dual fulfillments regarding the same prophecies or the application regarding typology.

Pay close attention: prior to Christ’s coming, we must take a literal approach to a literal temple with everything in it, but after Christ we take a typological approach to everything temple with everything in it to be applied to people. God in heaven dwells with people: “the dwelling place of God is with man (Revelation 21:2–3)

Christ redefined the temple to be built on a different foundation which stems from Him to the apostles and prophets before them with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit. (Ephesians 2:20-22) This key is also explained in Hebrews 9.

Therefore, the Ark is no longer a box. This was clear throughout Christian history until the 19th century. Athanasius of Alexandria (c. 296–373) was the main defender of the deity of Christ against the second-century heretics:

“O noble Virgin, truly you are greater than any other greatness. For who is your equal in greatness, O dwelling place of God the Word? To whom among all creatures shall I compare you, O Virgin? You are greater than them all O [Ark of the] Covenant, clothed with purity instead of gold! You are the ark in which is found the golden vessel containing the true manna, that is, the flesh in which divinity resides” (Homily of the Papyrus of Turin).

But then the Ark reappears in Heaven as Psalm 132 declared it was assumed to heaven. The Woman clothed with the sun (Revelation 12) has all to do with what makes Mary the Ark of the New Covenant, the New Temple which is measured (tested).

Ever wonder why the whole context of Revelation 11-12 deals with persecution and the measuring (testing) of the earthly temple of God which is the Church? But what is this testing all about? Who is to be tested (persecuted) and who is not to be tested (not persecuted)?

Therefore, these chapters divide who is to be of Christ and who is to be of Antichrist.

And we find this theme throughout Daniel and the Apocalypse the true Christians are being tested on how we deal with Communion “Daily Sacrifice”. Yet this “Daily Sacrifice” was later on misapplied to a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem. However, what follows from here will shock you beyond anything you have seen before:

THE FIFTH, SIXTH, SEVENTH AND EIGHTH LETHAL WORDS: “PERPETUAL” “HOST” “ROME” “GRAIN”
Daniel is strictly speaking of a perpetual sacrifice that is simply stopped and removed by allies of Antichrist. But who are these allies and who are his enemies? Enter another shocker:

Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him [the prince of the host] the perpetual [Hebrew ha tamid ‘continual’ sacrifice] was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. And an host was given him against the perpetual sacrifice, [Hebrew ha tamid] by reason of transgression [related to rebellion against Christ’s authority], and it [the host] cast down the truth to the ground; and it practiced, and prospered [it grew to challenge the valid church]. (Daniel 8:11-12)

Who are these “host” of peoples who aid the Antichrist? And what is this “Daily Sacrifice”? And what is the transgression they commit?

First of all, the Hebrew usually translated for “daily” in “daily sacrifice” is “Tameed” which means “perpetual” as translated in the Septuagint:

“And from the time of the removal of the perpetual sacrifice, when the abomination of desolation shall be set up, [there shall be] a thousand two hundred and ninety days.” (Daniel 12:11)

What is shocking about all this is that it points to a split within Christendom itself where one side follows the Antichrist and the other side fights the Antichrist. Pay close attention to who opposes Antichrist:

“And the galleys shall come upon him, and the Romans, and he shall be dealt a heavy blow.”

This verse already sets his natural enemies as southern Europe the closest nations to Asia Minor. Today Erdogan of Turkey (just as Protestants who hate Rome) has already voiced his hatred towards the Vatican in Rome declaring a coming war between Cross and Crescent.

When Turkey invades Egypt the southern European states (Chittim which constitutes Italy, Spain and Greece) translated as “Romans” will deal Turkey a heavy blow defeating them. One can imagine the indignation against the Vatican. Therefore, scripture says that the alliances Antichsit will have is with:

an host given him against the perpetual [sacrifice] and by reason of transgression [related to rebellion against Christ’s authority, the Church], and it [the host] cast down the truth to the ground; and it practiced, and prospered [to stand against the Romans]. (Daniel 8:11-12)

So this ‘host’ of peoples deny and hates the ‘daily sacrifice’.

But who else today but Protestants who daily issue anathemas accusing the Catholic “daily sacrifice” to be re-sacrificing Christ?

And which of the two are making a bigger fuss about Transubstantiation; Muslims or the Protestants?

Therefore, while Antichrist abolishes the Daily Sacrifice, he does it through this ‘host’ of peoples who ally with him: “and a host [are] given him [Antichrist] against the perpetual sacrifice and by reason of transgression …”

By “reason of transgression” (sin) they are given to him because these did not repent to Christ through His ordinance. These believe that your sins are forgiven yesterday, today and forever and so they continue to sin and think nothing of it since they believe that they are forgiven already and therefore they are in sin “transgression”.

But amazingly, the biblical text hits two demons in one stone when it exposes the enemy as well as it debunks the faulty accusation of ‘re-sacrificying Christ’.

Daniel uses ha-Tamid “the perpetual” [sacrifice] which is only used once in scripture in Daniel 12:11.

This makes many compelling arguments.

Tamid by itself conveys the concept of “never stopping,” “ceaseless” or “perpetual” exactly as Catholics and Orthodox define the Communion as a “perpetual sacrifice” and not just a memorial for remembrance.

But the text uses the Hebrew “Ha tamid”. This is unique since it says that “the ceaseless” or “the perpetual” or “the never stopping” is a single magnificent sacrifice that never ceased from its inception.

This presents a lethal argument against Protestantism by a Jesus-style question: if this is re-instituted animal sacrifice in some third rebuilt temple, Christ by His crucifixion abolished animal sacrifices.

Since this sacrifice is in perpetuity (continuance of the same sacrifice) any other interpretation besides the Eucharist will only speed up the quicksand blender draining the argument into the trash bin of history.

And since this is a “sacrifice” the counterargument would then have to insist that Daniel 11 must then be strictly applied to Antiochus Epiphanies who fulfilled this prophecy in 168 BC when he desecrated the temple and stopped the sacrifices.

Again, Christ’s crucifixion abolished temple sacrifices. One cannot even apply them to Titus for he too did not abolish sacrifices.

Any faulty interpretation besides the Eucharist would render Christ as the Antichrist for He too abolished temple sacrifices when He was crucified. Anyone who attempts to sway from the Eucharist as the only interpretation will inadvertently blaspheme Christ making Him Antichrist.

Try it. The puzzle is set in a way that there is no way out as we shall examine further.

Therefore, there is only one sacrifice that can fulfill this which is the perpetual (continuance) same sacrifice instituted by Christ.

This is the Eucharist no matter how one slices and dices the text.

Therefore, Antiochus is a type and the ultimate fulfillment is with Antichrist and never some rebuilt temple.

So this leaves no room to maneuver, the Jesus-style question then is: how do you explain a sacrificial system with “grain offering” that never ceased (perpetual)?

Scripture even pin-points who these anti-Eucharist go against, the Romans (the Catholics):

For the ships of Chittim [Romans] shall come against him [Antichrist]: therefore he shall be grieved, and return [retreat], and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant.

What we are dealing with here is pressure by Antichrist on the peoples who divided from the Roman Church which according to Daniel, these have ‘transgressed’ by rejecting God’s authority established by Christ on earth in Rome when Peter and Paul established it and then Antichrist will work with the ones who forsook the “Holy Covenant” of the Romans.

The text clearly reveals a reaction to the Romans as Antichrist is angered at them and therefore he conspires against them by colluding with Rome’s enemies, the Protestants and other Catholic/Orthodox Arab syncretists who departed from the faith and polluted the perpetual sacrifice of the mass as we already are beginning to see happening in the Middle East which we explained in detail here.

The whole crux of the struggle with Antichrist is summed up here:

“And such as do wickedly [syncretists, eugenists and Protestants] against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” (Daniel 11:32)

Wisdom 2 also gives much more detail on this issue which we already see forming in parts of Europe and elsewhere. This proves beyond doubt that the Church God established will remain steadfast but in patches and valleys and wilderness where the “woman is nourished” that is “her seed” the seed of Mary who cannot live without the Eucharist is fed the Eucharist in secret.

Christ established His church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it and is why the text says:

“but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits”.

Therefore, the falling away is not exclusively what we see happening from time to time in the Vatican but is also a departure from the faith protesting Vatican’s authority, the Eucharist, the Church and Mary.

Transgressions are clearly to go against whom God ordained and it is not Geneva here that is mentioned but the very Rome that they so much hate. God will not destroy Rome but Mecca, the spiritual seat of Antichrist and He will destroy it by the hand of Antichrist (Isaiah 21, Revelation 13, Revelation 17).

Ever wonder why Protestants are taught that Rome is the Harlot?

These anti-Eucharist are the ones mentioned aiding Antichrist by instituting a prohibition against the “perpetual sacrifice” and is why it is always used with either the word “transgression” (pesha) or “abomination” (shiqquwts).

“Transgression” in all scripture always relates to rebellion against God’s authority, law and covenant.

This is why we find Daniel warning about breaking the covenant in the same context with the “Grain Offering”.

What I just stated gets Protestants to cringe which is evidence that we defend and they continually  attack. Who in the first place finagled the Word to make Rome harlot?

But we have the Word of God on our side. For in a million years they cannot remove the word “Chitim” who are the Romans who ordained the very Latin Mass we so much love. In the very Bible (they so much belabor about), it is Rome that is blessed and not Geneva. If they have an argument against us then let them find Geneva in the Bible while they cringe in anger. Rome is destined to be the “city of saints”:

“To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 1:7)

Rome was “called to be saints” and this too is a grand prophecy.

The whole Word of God is prophetic and Rome produced more saints than any other city on earth, while Spain and New Spain were next, where Our Lady, the Ark of the Covenant, appeared and blessed New Spain (Mexico). And with the New Spain these produced more saints than any other after Rome.

Yet our enemies call this miracle in Mexico as ‘demonic’ forgetting that the healing of the soul is the healing of Christ for the divided haters accused Christ the same way Protestants accuse us:

But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.” Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.

This too is prophetic. A kingdom divided cannot stand. This is true regardless that such divide happens to the Church or to the enemies of Christ.

But look at the accusation. When Christ does the miracle it is accused of being demonic. Ask them about the miracle of Our Lady of Guadalupe and they will instantly accuse it of bing demonic. But ask them to reproduce her miraculous image or the image on the Shroud of Turin and they will fail by adding more mockery.

It is indeed the story of Moses all over again and it gains global headlines when scientists carbon date the shroud to later on be baffled how they could never reproduce it and even later be baffled more when they discover their faulty evidence. So just as Moses was with the Hebrews confounding the pagans, Christ with us, the Emmanuel is still with us, even today confounding the scoffers.

And history with recurring prophecy proves this whole case we just explained here. Daniel’s people were in captivity because they had defied the covenant of the Sabath. In Malachi 1:10-11, God annulled the old sacrificial system and established a “pure grain offering” (Hebrew: Mincha). The mention of “grain offering” in the ancient Temple sacrifices is clearly in scripture, but a “pure grain offering” only exists once in Malachi and only pertains to including in and grafting in the Gentiles (the Church).

But Joel puts an end is to when these prophecies are fulfilled. It cannot be regarding Antiochus or Tutus or a rebuilt temple. Joel warns that prior to the day of the Lord that this grain offering will cease:

“The grain offering [Bread] and the drink offering [wine]. Have been cut off from the house of the Lord [the Temple]; The priests mourn, who minister to the Lord … Alas for the day! For the day of the Lord is at hand; It shall come as destruction from the Almighty.”

There is no escape, Joel specifically sets these prophecies to be fulfilled just prior to the Day of the Lord calling it “grain offering”. This can never be about some historic event.

And with Daniel, the Little Horn will succeed in obtaining assistance from the Protestant world and by this you can see how the West is divided sheep from goat and wheat from tares “by reason of transgression” or “by transgression” (Hebrew: be’pasa).

This is a strong Hebrew word for rebellion against God. Contextually, once again, it is against God’s authority, law and covenant of sacrifice and this is why “an host was given him against the continual [ha tamid] sacrifice”. Daniel 8:13 as well reveals the enemy:

“then I heard a heavenly saint asking another heavenly saint “How long shall be the vision concerning the perpetual [sacrifice] and the transgression [rebellion against the covenant of sacrifice] of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?”

We find this testing of the saints in Revelation 12 “measure the temple” (test it) and this ‘host’ in Daniel is the instrument of testing. This ‘host’ is to ‘be trodden under foot’ which Daniel 8:11 reveals the meaning:

“Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him [the prince of the host] the daily sacrifice [ha tamidwas taken away”

This makes everything clear. This ‘host’ is the equation most ignore. It is the rebellious ‘host of peoples’. This host is ‘trodden under foot’ (controlled by) Antichrist and are used by Antichrist. This host of peoples have a “prince” whom Antichrist magnifies himself as an equal to and it is this ‘prince of the rebellious host’ who will desecrate the sacrifice (Eucharist). It is this ally who will persecute the Christians mocking the Eucharistic Sacrifice.

THE NINTH LETHAL WORD: “ALTAR”
If Daniel is the prophet for the Jews and for the Church, John is the Prophet that mirrors him, but strictly for the Church. Daniel’s prophecies cannot be interpreted in a vacuum unless one links it to another crucial prophecy in Revelation 11-12 where the temple is measured (tested) and here Antichrist is given the court that does not participate in the perpetual sacrifice. Remember, Temple in the New Testament is the Church. Having this in mind you can now easily decipher:

“And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and it was said to me: Arise, and measure [test] the temple of God, and the altar and them that adore therein. But the court, which is without the temple, cast out, and measure it not [do not test it through persecution]: because it is given unto the Gentiles [the Antichrist], and the holy city [the Jerusalem of God] they shall tread under foot two and forty months” (Revelation 11:1-2)

Everything fits. Like a glove. Daniel and John match. Keep in mind the rule of thumb; prior to Christ’s coming, we must take a literal approach to a literal temple with everything in it, but after Christ we take a typological approach to everything temple with everything in it to be applied to people.

So the temple here is the Church, the entire Body of Christ here is measured (tested through persecution) by their participation in the proper covenant of sacrifice on an Altar “measure [test] the temple of God, and the altar and them that adore therein.”

Who adores an “Altar”? Who adores the Eucharist? Are those the protestants?

What we see today is a mass exodus from the Eucharist. Catholics instead of participating in the Mass are doing another mass: a mass conversion to Protestantism.

In fact, this today constitutes one third of Christendom. Protestantism constitutes 800 million among approximately 2.4 billion Christians. Trim fat from meat it ends up the same: this would be 33%, a third, mostly in the U.S. and North Europe. And the scripture confirms:

“And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth” (Revelation 12:4).

Stars of heaven here are who were considered brethren departing from their approach to heavenly Mount Zion. Remember “But you have come to [approach] Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.”

This is the “church of the firstborn” the primitive church whom they abandoned with it the supplications to saints and angels and also to Christ, the mediator.

These will tow the line of Antichrist. The “arms” and “host” who are with Antichrist are human forces.

And if fulfilled prophecy is the yardstick we can show proof:

“Antiochus’ hosts confederate with the apostate Israelites; these latter attain the climax of guilt, when they not only, as before, “forsake the covenant” ( Dan 11:30 ), but “do wickedly against” it ( Dan 11:32), turning complete heathens. Here Antiochus’ actings are described in language which reach beyond him the type to Antichrist the antitype [JEROME] “

But this will be fulfilled again in the church. These will be the ones not measured (tested) who are outside the Altar of Sacrifice (Eucharist). These are not part of the kingdom of Antichrist but are allied with him:

“And arms shall stand on his part [to his side], and they shall defile the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the continual sacrifice.”

Islam is not as adamant about opposing the Eucharist as the Protestants. This is a sad reality which can easily be deduced by asking a Jesus-style question: provide the historic proof of what Muslims write opposing the Eucharist versus centuries of anti-Eucharist writing by Protestants? 

I am not here attempting to dilute Islam’s role, indeed, Islam is the religion of Antichrist and it would not mind prohibiting the practice of Christianity altogether, but when it comes to specifically the Eucharist, no enemy of Transubstantiation in their activism has matched the Protestants.

Even 1 John exposes that the acolytes of Antichrist stems from Christendom:

Children, it is the last hour! As you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. From this we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they did not belong to us; for if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us. But by going out they made it plain that none of them belongs to us. 1 John 2:18-19

This proves a major divide. “They went out from us, but they did not belong to us” makes it clear its a departure, splitting away is from the original ancient church “for if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us”. And all this is in the context of Antichrist.

Even Christ Himself, when He judges in Matthew 25 reveals this fact that we are no dealing with pagans. He is not judging heathens but separatists. Why else do they say “we healed in your name and cast devils …”?

Yet He damns them because they either did nothing or participated in persecuting the true Church during the reign of Antichrist and is why He tells them of their persecutions: “just as you did it to the least of these My brethren you did it unto Me”.

These, with Catholic accomplices, deeply rooted in the system will change the sacrifice and defile the  sanctuary of strength–not only military strength, but chiefly the spiritual stronghold of the covenant-people. During Antiochus, Apollonius “polluted” it with altars to idols and sacrifices of swine’s flesh, after having “taken away the daily sacrifice”.

Novices speak of the Roman attack on Jerusalem in AD 70, under Titus as fulfillment, but nowhere is there any historical evidence that Titus did what Antiochus did.

But they do this to point at Rome. But there was no desecration of the altar inside the Holy of Holies by Rome or was there any abolition of a sacrificial system by Rome.

In fact it was the Romans who aided Israel to finally defeat and thwart Antiochus who ordered his general, Apollonius into Jerusalem on what he claimed was a peaceful mission (peace treaty) and when he was inside the city, they attacked the Jews on a Sabbath, when the Jews were reluctant to break the Sabbath covenant.

Isn’t this what the Antichrist will do?

Ever wonder why seven books are removed from Protestant bibles? Protestants do not read the Roman–Jewish Treaty which was etched in scripture. It was an agreement made between Judas Maccabeus and the Roman Republic in 161 BC. According to 1 Maccabees 8:17-20 and Josephus, it was the first recorded conrtact between the Jewish people and the Romans. The treaty was signed during the Maccabean Revolt against the Greco-Syrian Seleucid kingdom. During this period, Rome’s power and influence in the Hellenistic world was growing. Rome had recently humiliated the Seleucid King Antiochus IV by ordering his troops to leave Egypt, and had previously defeated his father Antiochus III in battle. After winning a number of victories and capturing Jerusalem, Judas Maccabeus sent two emissaries, Eupolemus son of John son of Accos and Jason son of Eleazar, to establish a treaty of friendship with the Roman Senate. This proposal was accepted and a treaty was signed.

According to I Maccabees chapter 8:

May all go well with the Romans and with the nation of the Jews at sea and on land forever, and may sword and enemy be far from them. If war comes first to Rome or to any of their allies in all their dominion, the nation of the Jews shall act as their allies wholeheartedly, as the occasion may indicate to them. To the enemy that makes war they shall not give or supply grain, arms, money, or ships, just as Rome has decided; and they shall keep their obligations without receiving any return. In the same way, if war comes first to the nation of the Jews, the Romans shall willingly act as their allies, as the occasion may indicate to them. And to their enemies there shall not be given grain, arms, money, or ships, just as Rome has decided; and they shall keep these obligations and do so without deceit. Thus on these terms the Romans make a treaty with the Jewish people. If after these terms are in effect both parties shall determine to add or delete anything, they shall do so at their discretion, and any addition or deletion that they may make shall be valid. Concerning the wrongs that King Demetrius is doing to them, we have written to him as follows:, ‘Why have you made your yoke heavy on our friends and allies the Jews? If now they appeal again for help against you, we will defend their rights and fight you on sea and on land.’

And with God an agreement is an agreement. It is a covenant. History reveals and debunks all the false claims. Had Christ began a revolt against Rome, He would have broken the covenant with the Romans and this is another reason why God stood against the Jews on this one. It was Herod, an Edomite Jew who killed the children of Bethlehem Ephratah. Those who revolted against Rome also revolted against their God and Messiah where even Pontius Pilate did not want to crucify Christ had it not been for the jeering crowds who wanted Bar-Abbas to revolt against Rome. Even the false Messiah Bar-Kochba was doomed to destruction and today Masada bares the evidence.

Prophecy will not be as the Protestants interpret it but as scripture states it. It will be as God and history ordained it. And if you think you are immune from following Antichrist think of the Jews who followed Antiochus. Sooner or later your nationalism and your zeal from hating one over the other will overcome even the elect if the devil can convince where we failed to equip. The devil today convinced multitudes to believe that men can surgically amputate their private parts and the world thinks its normal. If he can convince the world of such depravity its not much to convince the world to deny that Christ can be in the Eucharist.

But God ordered John to only “measure the temple of God, and the altar and them that adore it“.

How much do you adore the Eucharist and standing in worship while the priest faces the Altar?

Shall we be stopped by tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword or being slaughtered as sheep, death, life, angels, principalities, powers?

This is clear. Protestants do not adore the Altar but vehemently oppose it and therefore they are of “the court, which is without the temple, cast out, and measured not: because it is given unto the Gentiles [Antichrist], and the holy city they shall tread under foot two and forty months”.

It is these who will carry out the spiritual and religious persecution against the Church.

This happens in the last 3.5 years, the same timeframe where John reveals when the seed of the woman is persecuted and is fed (the Eucharist) in the wilderness:

Then a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and with the moon under her feet, and on her head was a crown of twelve stars … the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent … And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (Revelation 12:1, 14,17)

The moon (Islam) is after her seed (the children of Mary) and the nourishment in the wilderness is the Eucharist where Communion is practiced in secret and where all these view the Woman as their Ark-Mother.

Therefore, the Altar is not a stage with drums and disco tech lights. This by itself desecrates the Altar and the sacrifice, yet millions read the text not realizing they are prepped for Antichrist because they say that they love Jesus “Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in thy name, and cast out devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name?”

These are charismatics, they claim to be prophets and exorcists, yet they have no authority in doing any of these missions because they were not sent. And then they say that they love Jesus, yet they slander Catholics day in and day out.

With the Jews, if government removes the Sabbath, you will end Judaism, while with the Catholic/Orthodox remove the Eucharist and its the catastrophe of catastrophes.

How can Protestants who removed 1 Maccabees 1 from their Bibles understand how prophecy regarding Antichrist is fulfilled:

Antiochus now issued a decree that all nations in his empire should abandon their own customs and become one people. All the Gentiles and even many of the Israelites submitted to this decree. They adopted the official pagan religion, offered sacrifices to idols, and no longer observed the Sabbath.

44 The king also sent messengers with a decree to Jerusalem and all the towns of Judea, ordering the people to follow customs that were foreign to the country.45 He ordered them not to offer burnt offerings, grain offerings, or wine offerings in the Temple, and commanded them to treat Sabbaths and festivals as ordinary work days. 46 They were even ordered to defile the Temple and the holy things in it.47 They were commanded to build pagan altars, temples, and shrines, and to sacrifice pigs and other unclean animals there. 48 They were forbidden to circumcise their sons and were required to make themselves ritually unclean in every way they could, 49 so that they would forget the Law which the Lord had given through Moses and would disobey all its commands. 50 The penalty for disobeying the king’s decree was death.

51 The king not only issued the same decree throughout his whole empire, but he also appointed officials to supervise the people and commanded each town in Judea to offer pagan sacrifices. 52 Many of the Jews were ready to forsake the Law and to obey these officials. They defiled the land with their evil, 53 and their conduct forced all true Israelites to hide wherever they could.

54 On the fifteenth day of the month of Kislev in the year 145, King Antiochus set up
    The Awful Horror on the altar of the Temple, and pagan altars were built in the towns throughout Judea. 55 Pagan sacrifices were offered in front of houses and in the streets. 56 Any books of the Law which were found were torn up and burned, 57 and anyone who was caught with a copy of the sacred books or who obeyed the Law was put to death by order of the king. 58 Month after month these wicked people used their power against the Israelites caught in the towns.

59 On the twenty-fifth of the month, these same evil people offered sacrifices on the pagan altar erected on top of the altar in the Temple. 60 Mothers who had allowed their babies to be circumcised were put to death in accordance with the king’s decree. 61 Their babies were hung around their necks, and their families and those who had circumcised them were put to death. 62 But many people in Israel firmly resisted the king’s decree and refused to eat food that was ritually unclean.63 They preferred to die rather than break the holy covenant and eat unclean food—and many did die. 64 In his anger God made Israel suffer terribly.

So it is about consuming the unholy sacrifice of Cain; grape juice and unconsecrated bread, Muslim Ashura Communion or Halal instead of the Eucharist …all this will suffice as an abomination of desolation of your temple.

SO WHAT ARE THE TRANSGRESSIONS? 
Psalm 132 reveals a major clue: “Its priests [the Arks’s priests] I will clothe with salvation, and its faithful will shout for joy,” (verse 16).

The God of the Ark of Bethlehem Ephratah will clothe its priests with salvation?

These are not Jewish Temple priests. Mary was no Ark Who sat in a literal temple.

To understand more we must look the priests with the Ark that the Jordan (symbolic of Christ) washed their feet causing the separation between what is dead (dead sea) and what is the water of life. Only the ones with the Ark are on the right side. Only the ones whose feet were washed can lead:

“as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, that the waters of Jordan shall be cut off from the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand upon an heap” (Joshua 3:13) “And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the water, (for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest)” (Joshua 3:15).

Christ’s harvest separates between who carries the Ark of the Covenant including who follows the Ark and who is without the Ark. Without the Ark, there is no covenant. Christ washes the feet of the disciples and only these can lead.

Even Judges 7 reveals another secret:

“Separate those who lap the water with their tongues as a dog laps from those who kneel down to drink.” Three hundred of them drank from cupped hands, lapping like dogs. All the rest got down on their knees to drink. The Lord said to Gideon, “With the three hundred men that lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hands.”

The water is Christ. He is the Water of Life. To lap this water of life like dogs, pertains to gentiles taking the water of life by the tongue instead of the hand. These will be the ones whom God uses to combat Antichrist. Throughout Christian history, the Eucharist was consumed by the tongue. Today, before Antichrist comes to the stage, many are consuming it by the hand.

It is therefore, the ones who set their foundation of the apostolic succession which honors the Ark (Mary) and takes proper Communion and they stem from the twelve apostles. These will be saved:

“And Joshua set up twelve stones [twelve apostles] in the midst of Jordan [Christ], in the place where the feet of the priests which bare the ark of the covenant stood: and they are there unto this day.” (Joshua 4:9)

The Ark is all over scripture. You know the scoffer for he will instantly ask ‘where is Mary in the Bible as Catholics describe her?’

This is the most lame argument. If typology is used by the same scoffers to reveal Christ, we have similar typology that reveals the Ark. If one takes away the typology regarding Mary, then the typology regarding Christ would too be dismissed and the whole foundation is destroyed.

The scoffer is an instrument of Satan. He/she do not realize it and no matter how you try to help them drink, you can never succeed, until you notice their desire to dig wells. This is why Jacob dug wells. This is why Christ instructed to not throw your pearls to pigs.

So when we examine what is prefigured in the Old Testament regarding the Ark of the Covenant is fulfilled in the New testament in the Blessed Virgin. The Ark was gold inside and out while Mary had no stain of alloy, pure (Ex 25:11) (Lk 1:28). The Ark was set at the front of Israel’s military maneuvers (Num 10:33, Josh 3:3). “Who is she that comes as terrible as an army” (Song of Songs 6:10). “The Word of God (written on tablets of stone) was placed in the Ark” (Ex 25:16) “Jesus is the Word of God. The Word made Flesh was placed in Mary’s Womb.” (John 1:1). The Holy Spirit ‘overshadowed’ the Ark in the Old Testament where God descended upon it (Lev 16:2; Num 9: 15-23; Ex 40: 34-38) just as in the New Testament, the Holy Spirit ‘overshadowed’ Mary (Luke 1:35). David has the Ark remain in the house of Obed Edom in the hill country of Judea for 3 months (2 Sam 6:11) is fulfilled when the blessed Virgin Mary visited her cousin Elizabeth in the hill country of Judea for 3 months (Luke 1:56).

But it was only the Levite priests who were permitted to handle the Ark, a lesson that both king David and Uzzah learned the hard way, not following protocol that God established through the Law got Uzzah killed regardless of his good intentions.

From the history of Israel, when God established the legal ordinances concerning the office and the priesthood till today, it is the priests who are expected to be perpetually ministering before the Lord, bringing before the Daily Sacrifice to be carried out within legal prescription which demanded nothing less than perfection from every offering.

God finally revealed the secret thoughts of the Hebrew priests and why He ended their sacrificial system which in itself prophetic of today:

A son honours his father, a servants their master. If then I am a father, where is the honour due to me? And if I am a master, where is the respect due to me? Says the LORD of hosts to you, O priests, who despise my name. You say, ‘How have we despised your name?’ By offering polluted food on my altar. And you say, ‘How have we polluted it?’ By thinking that the LORD’s table may be despised. When you offer blind animals in sacrifice, is that not wrong? Try presenting that to your governor; will he be pleased with you or show you favour? (Malachi 1:6-8).

While this prophecy was regarding Israel it is prophetic. Taking Communion unworthily or handling the Eucharist improperly or polluting the sacrifice of the Altar fulfills Malachi 1:6-8 on how Israel did the same. God simply demands the best. Whatever we build, whatever we provide, whatever we dress to His service must be the best.

By declaring that the animal sacrifices were being offered were “polluted”, God began the process to put an end to the system that has served the Jews for thousands of years, and announced a new sacrificial system was coming, one where Christ will forever cancel the animal sacrificial system. The perpetual sacrifice to be replaced, in fact, has been foreshadowed by God when He said, “For from the rising of the sun to its setting my name is great among the nations, and in every place incense is offered to my name, and a pure offering; for my name is great among the nations,” (Malachi 1:11).

From the very beginning of the inception of the Church, incense has been offered to the Name of the Lord. Among the only remaining two lampstands, Catholics and Orthodox, it is still the practice to this day to fill the Church with Holy Smoke, a smell that is “sweet smelling aroma to the Lord,” and the pure offering that is done daily is the Eucharist and is what is missing in the ones who abandoned the Covenant of Sacrifice.

These will end up collaborating with Antichrist. The Sacrament of the Eucharist was established by Christ Himself and could only be administered by the bishops, or by the priest as authorized by the bishops, as St. Ignatius noted:

Let no man do anything connected with the Church without the bishop. Let that be deemed a proper Eucharist, which is [administered] either by the bishop, or by one to whom he has entrusted it. Wherever the bishop shall appear, there let the multitude [of the people] also be; even as, wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church,” (St. Ignatius, Epistle to the Smyrnaeans, Chapter VIII).

Mind you, St. Ignatius was writing this around 30 to 107 AD. He out of all people who came up way later would be familiar with the practice the apostles did themselves as they appointed elders to carry on such functions. And if there is any doubt to this, the Book of Acts should put an end to all doubt:

Now during those days, when the disciples were increasing in number, the Hellenists complained against the Hebrews because their widows were being neglected in the daily distribution of food. And the twelve called together the whole community of disciples and said, ‘It is not right that we should neglect the word of God in order to wait at tables. Therefore, friends, select from among yourselves seven men of good standing, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may appoint to this task, while we, for our part, will devote ourselves to prayer and to serving the word.’ What they said pleased the whole community, and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, together with Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolaus, a proselyte of Antioch. They had these men stand before the apostles, who prayed and laid their hands on them,” (Acts 6:1-6).

Such priests must be approved by the hierarchy at the time, the Apostles. Even when St. Paul became a convert to Christianity, he still had to be consecrated to serve God as an apostle:

While they were worshipping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.’ Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off. (Acts 13:2-3).

The practice of laying hands is ancient practice that can be found when Moses laid hands on Joshua, signifying the consecration of Joshua to lead Israel and to be empowered with the presence of the Holy Spirit. It also signify the high level of trust being placed into the priesthood as well as in the leader.

But the leaven enters by isolating scripture. The argument presented by Protestants as an excuse to promote self-appointed priests used scripture isolation. They claimed that since St. Paul argued about Jesus being the eternal High Priest that the priesthood is over based on the Book of Hebrews.

But Christ ordained the first priests:

“Then Jesus called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal,” (Luke 9:1).

This remains in effect:

‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age’ (Matthew 28:19-20).

Notice how the authority functions. Christ has all the authority and therefore He ordained the disciples to carry out His mission. And if such authority ceased with the disciples how then did Christ remain with only these twelve disciples “to the end of the age”? Therefore, Christ remains with the priesthood till the end of the age commissioning only them to do baptism.

It is why, the only two lampstands, Catholic and Orthodox, have long contended the value of the apostolic-succession because in the laying of hands, they are empowering their bishops, who then empower the priests to be able to hear confession of sins, as Christ has explicitly ordained:

“Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, [only then] they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained,” (John 20:23).

No matter how one tries to massage this verse, Jesus made it clear, the disciples had the same authority as Christ Himself had in forgiving sins or to even retain sins. Some will yell, “This is blasphemy! God alone forgive sins,” to which I will ask, “Why do you sound like the Pharisees?”

It was in fact the scribes and the Pharisees who began to question:

‘Who is this who is speaking blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God alone?’ When Jesus perceived their questionings, he answered them, ‘Why do you raise such questions in your hearts? Which is easier, to say, “Your sins are forgiven you”, or to say, “Stand up and walk?” But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins’…” (Luke 5:21-24).

Christ clearly gave all authority to Peter, and by extension to the disciples:

“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven,” (Matthew 16:19).

And this included the forgiveness of sins as clearly stated in John 20:23.

Priests are not there to sit in the seat of judgement to condemn you. They would very much rather to help save your souls because you are that valuable to them. Even confessing your sins, no matter how it makes one extremely shameful, it is actually healing and it takes a great deal of courage.

And as to tradition, St. Paul in closing out on the abuse of the Eucharist, he dropped this line, “About the other things I will give instructions when I come” (1 Corinthians 11:34b).

But we have no written record of what those instructions were in relation with the Eucharist. Did God forget to jot them down? Hardly. Scripture hints and tells us that what the Church practiced from its inception will be given to the church.

Rejecting the Eucharist the Real Presence of Christ in the Sacrament is what puts these on the side of the Antichrist. Even the prophet Joel spoke of the Eucharist:

“The grain offering and the drink offering. Have been cut off from the house of the Lord; The priests mourn, who minister to the Lord … Alas for the day! For the day of the Lord is at hand; It shall come as destruction from the Almighty.” (Joel 1:9, 15)

Yet even now, says the LORD, return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; rend your hearts and not your clothing. Return to the LORD, your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love, and relents from punishing. Who knows whether he will not turn and relent, and leave a blessing behind him, a grain-offering and a drink-offering for the LORD, your God? (Joel 2:12-14)

If such verses are for the Old Testament temple, how is it in the context of “the day of the Lord”? Even better yet, why is it that banning this “grain offering” sparks the day of the Lord? He even left us a “grain offering” practiced until the Day of the Lord. This discounts any other interpretation. This “grain offering” destroys centuries of worthless commentaries.

St. Paul even instructed, “For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes” (1 Corinthians 11:26).

It is easy to give examples how Protestants can switch on a dime and unite with Islam. Decades ago Protestants considered Mormons as heretics until two men with suits showed up, Mitt Romney and Glenn Beck and they then instantly, including even Franklin Graham appeased Mormonism.

Throughout the history of the reformation Protestants removed the Eucharist in every place they controlled. Bishops who were made to convert and abandon the Covenant would coerce his entire diocese to Protestantism. Jesus warned of the little leaven which is a starter that kicks in and begins to take away elements of the true faith little by little until there is nothing left. It truly is what the locusts have eaten.

But the Protestant will always counter with a quick comment that sounds right “all I need is Jesus and Him crucified”.

But imagine if Moses saw the burning bush and God spoke through it these words: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that so whoever believes in Him shall not parish but have eternal life”. And then Moses asks “Who are you Lord” and the Lord answered him and said “for their is only one mediator between man and Me and that man is Jesus Christ”.

And then the Lord left and never contacted Moses who etched these two verses on two separate tablets which were passed down to our day and we all wrote these two verses in a booklet and printed them on In-n-Out burger wrappers and under french fries paper trays.

And if anyone tells us anything about God we would reject it and only apply these two verses.

Would that be considered love? How would the world even know Who is this Jesus and how does He mediate?

If that was all what God sent us, we are in major trouble. These two verses would not be love at all despite that they are true.

Yet this seems to be the main two verses many use today when confronted with any verse that does not suit their fancy.

Scripture can validate that for God also so loved the world that He also had the faithful make an Ark a symbol of Mary. But then the Holy Spirit hovered over a human Ark in a mysterious way and she bore a Son and named Him Jesus Who is all in all.

This ark, as it turns out, is all over scripture. It did not symbolize Jesus, yet what was in it did. And Who rested on it was the Holy Spirit Who hovered over Mary as He hovered over the waters in Genesis to begin creation.

When I shared Psalm 132 in my previous Sunday Special and asked anyone to refute, I did not get a single refutation. I had asked: how is it that the Ark is assumed to heaven with God, together:

Go up Lord, to the place of your rest [heaven], you and the ark of your might!”. (Psalm 132:8)

And I still ask, how is it that this Ark is exclusively Jesus?

So next time you run into someone who claims to know scripture and prophecy, tell them to discuss with you the nine lethal words and win them to the one true church or else silence them with the truth.

    Hey, I know I am 9 hours ahead on CET but I had to wait until 5pm for you to post your Sunday special, stop this going to bed garbage. God created the grind stone for a reason now put your nose back down and get busy.

    • Raph Sebastian

      Hahaha….good one brother Tom.

    • Yes sir. No bed for me. I will not slumber next time.

        Okay I will make a deal you can eat all the Mexican food you like and I will pray you will not gain weight. I drove from from Germany to Spain in the late 60s thinking that after 400 years of colonial history Spain must have brought back not only gold but the mark of civilization Mexican food, no joy. Wonderful beaches, cities and people but no Mexican food. It is better now here, it is the spices that are hard but we are getting there. Thanks for the article I hope some who fear Mary as antiGod will read this.

        It is good. Psalm 132 is 131 in the D+R.

  • ace

    Wow! I had to fight back tears. Stay with us Walid and continue. This is inspired! We need you! Do not even think the words of Simeon when Jesus was presented in the temple.

    • Thank you Ace. All I know is that I love digging wells.

      Can you hand me the the pix and the shovel, please? By next Sunday I need to dig another well.

      • ace

        …As long as you don’t get thrown in, or at least have someone to pull you out if you do. These Sunday specials are very good; more in depth and insightful. Sometimes, I can’t quite explain it (yes there is all the research, logic, insight, and humor which is pretty cool and much appreciated), but I get a sense of time and space travel when I read your stuff; not always, not every piece, but it’s there… You and your staff and family are in my prayers.

  • This article is amazing.

    1) This article highlighted the need for me to read the Maccabees’ account more. I did not know about the treaty between Rome and the Jews, and that makes sense why the Romans finally came to Israel to expel the Greeks.

    2) Poor Pointus Pilate. He was truly caught between rock and hard place, and caved to the religious-nationalism of the Pharisees who wanted Jesus crucified instead of the terrorist.

    3) The priesthood of the Catholic and Orthodox Church was transferred over from the Hebrews because of their rejection of Christ’s one perfect oblation. Just as the office of the High Priest was transferred to Christ, the Hebrews’ priesthood was transferred to the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. Just as the High Priest under the canceled animal sacrificial system had many priests assisting him in his office, the Catholic and Orthodox Church today continue the same practice with Christ the eternal High Priest and the priesthood serving the Eucharist to the faithful. Traditional Catholic emphasis the placement of the Bread on the tongue. Orthodox serves the Eucharist slightly different – with the bread in the wine and served with spoon to the Faithful (Rudy and Yevengii, please correct me if I am wrong). As an Anglican-to-be, I hold the Bread in my hand and wait until the priest takes it from my hand, dip the Bread in the Wine and place it on my tongue.

    4) Protestants today uses the word “Communion” where they will simply read from the passage of 1 Corinthians 11 and briefly offer a word of prayer and tell everybody to eat. There is no confessional or giving of general absolution for sins because it is all individual based and between man and God without any intermediary. Catholics and Orthodox, Anglicans as well, continue the practice of private confessions with the priests listening to the sins being confessed. The first time I gave my confession, it was like a huge weight has been taken away from my soul, and when the priest gave me the absolution, I knew right there and then, God has taken away my sins.

    5) The rejection of the Eucharist as the Real Presence of Christ only places those on the slippery slope to perdition. Even when a Muslim prince had his horse eat from the altar when they broke through and desecrated the Vatican, it is nothing like the hostility displayed by Protestants who stubbornly refuse to see the Scriptures as seen through the eyes of the Catholic and Orthodox Church – that the Eucharist is to be offered perpetually until Christ come again. Christ told us to do this often. St. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 11 that we proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes again. This should debunk all the Protestants whining that we “re-sacrifice” Christ again when the Gospel and Pauline narrations says the opposition. It is no wonder the early church were busy fighting Gnostics who rejected the Eucharist because in their debased minds, the flesh were corrupted and beyond saving. Alas, they will not hear because the Scripture is again fulfilled, “Go and say to this people: ‘Keep listening, but do not comprehend; keep looking, but do not understand.’ Make the mind of this people dull, and stop their ears, and shut their eyes, so that they may not look with their eyes, and listen with their ears, and comprehend with their minds, and turn and be healed.'” (Isaiah 6:9-10).

    6) It was my pleasure to contribute something worthwhile. God bless upon the household of clan Shoebat.

    • Стефан Евгений

      Trevor,You are correct, The holy gifts are given to laymen by a spoon to prevent it being abused. Priests partake individually the consecrated bread and wine.
      This is the first service in one hundred in the winter palace.

      This vid on YouTube popped up. You should see the comments from Protestants. They are jaw doping on ignorance.
      Orthodoxy teaches Mary is the Ark of the Covenant, Visual Theology, Holy Of Holies, Jesus.

      • I forgot to mention the role of Russia as mentioned in Daniel. This would put the Orthodox and the Catholics both as fighting Antichrist. I only remembered this when I was using your honorable father’s Rosary today so please forgive.

        • Стефан Евгений

          Nothing to forgive brother, Papa would be so happy I gave it to a Catholic.
          He carried it with him all through the war. I knew it would be taken care of.
          God, has a plan for my old homeland. What that plan is I’m not sure yet but I do see the repentance. A true sign would be to eject that abomination on Beautiful (Red) Square.

          • Juan

            Eject satanic Lenin’s mummy from Red Square but don’t allow satanic NATO to overcome Holy Russia.
            May Jesuchrist reign over the whole World through His Mystical Body and the Holy Sacraments.
            Roman Empire has two parts: the Western one centered in Rome and the Eastern one centered in Moscow as Constantinople’s heir.
            Russia still has a problem with crypto-Communism but Italy, Spain, Portugal and France are under the dominance of also Antichristian powers, those who killed John Paul I and put syncretist (ex. Assisi meetings) polish John Paul II on Papacy.
            Humbleness and patience, brother. Saint Michael has a hard work cleaning the Church of those who want to use It for their selfish purposes.

      • I thought so. I have seen several videos of Orthodox handling the Eucharist of other spoon, including Putin partaking of the Sacrament. NO wonder he is hated.

        • And it is administered by the Priest on the tongue.

          The whole crux of Gideon is that the water went directly to the tongue just as the priests crossing the Jordan where the water touched their feet.

          Therefore, the water is symbolic of Christ here which the priest is KEY.

          The others who took it by the hand did not have the priest as the element of feeding. Only the priest (Christ’s instrument) can feed.

          God has a hierarchy.

          Protestants use their hand and therefore its symbolic of dropping the priesthood.

          • That is what I don’t understand.

            Protestants reads the same scriptures and have completely different interpretation than Catholics do, and they cannot even agree among themselves!

            I suppose it’s as if Isaiah 6:9-10 is being repeated again and again.

        • Стефан Евгений

          Then I said, “Woe is me, for I am ruined! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I live among a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.” Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs. He touched my mouth with it and said, “Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away and your sin is forgiven.”
          Trevor, see it is taken from Isaiah 6:5

          • Right! Amazing how much touching the lips foreshadows the Eucharist.

          • Julie LaBrecque

            I warned you – once you begin reading scripture through the lens of the Church, a whole new paradigm opens up for you…

          • There you are! I was wondering when you would respond. It was your comment about Psalm 132:16 that got me writing about the priesthood. So thank you.

          • Julie LaBrecque

            :)) I will be alerting you about something penned by Pope Leo XIII soon. Also will be sending an email your way about husband.

          • I’m all ears.

      Well summarized points. What a feast the Chef has brought us today.

    • concerned american

      The first time I gave my confession, it was like a huge weight has been taken away from my soul, and when the priest gave me the absolution, I knew right there and then, God has taken away my sins.

      Trevor, this brought tears to my eyes.

  • Nan

    I was there, at shepherd’s field.

    • Tell me about it Nan.

      • Nan

        Where to even start? It was my last day with the pilgrimage group, we went back to Bethlehem because the first time we went the gates were locked. We waited and shopped in the store across from the fields and then went to the Carmelite convent up the hill for our scapulars.

        We went to Shepherd’s field the next day, first to the church that is so beautiful, then to the Shepherds place. It was awe-inspiring to be in the place where those who had first visited the Messiah took shelter. The tour guide explained the place and its distance to the Nativity and told us that the poppies growing only showed the Cross during Lent. I didn’t know that about poppies.

        We saw so many things during this pilgrimage that I’ve been unable to sort it all out, then to compound it, I stayed another week and a half. I missed the last day of the pilgrimage but was okay with that because I saw the things I needed to see.

        If I’d gone home as scheduled, I’d have had an unscheduled pilgrimage to Newark as the flight left late and there were many cancellations due to storms. They spent Palm Sunday at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan w Cardinal Dolan. I spent Palm Sunday near the front of the procession, walking from Bethany to Jerusalem with my iconography classmates and people from the world over.

        We took the bus with the parish so went through the checkpoint, where all locals needed a permit to go to Jerusalem. They looked at the cover of my passport and that was it. The two others staying in the same flat as me had to return for their passports before getting on the bus. I carry mine no matter what.

        • In my time, there was no checkpoint from Bethlehem to Jerusalem, just sporadic checks every now and then. I once forgot my ID and I was beaten up by the Israeli soldiers.

          But like a typical Palestinian, I got my revenge and it was all over the news paper. I will not repeat what I did. It was bad, I severly injured the chief of police, an Israeli. It took me a while to find the article way later, but could never find the man to seek forgiveness.

  • richinnameonly

    I feel I was spiritually led to this site a few years ago and today have been blessed in reading this offering. Thank you and may God continue to help you apply your knowledge with wisdom. Now, will we see a tsunami of Protestant reaction?

  • filomena seiffert

    This article proves to me, Protestantism was inspired by satan because he hates the woman above all as, God decreed she would crush its head. Protestants deny Mary’s queen status, her virginity after Jesus birth, her sinless birth, her power, given by God, to help her spiritual children, her ascension into heaven and so on. We can feel the hatred the devil has for Jesus mother by the way protestants speak about her. Thanks Walid, thanks for the countless hours you spend studding the bible and other documents, matching the them to find the truth few can see.

    • PARKS CURTIS

      So you think not paying money priests to make up for sins is Satanic ? Are you a priest ? ?

      • filomena seiffert

        It was only in Germany that it happened, and about paying your preachers for miracle cures which never happens? Ask your pastors, some of them are very rich with that scam. At least the priest did not get rich it was to build the church. Such stupid question.

        • PARKS CURTIS

          let me get this straight you are saying that protestants are Satinic … especially bin a time when we need each other to fight TRUE SATANISM … BUT YOUR “CONSERVATIVE REFUTE ” is that me noticing this false accusation and the greed protests broke from is ” STUPID ” . nEITHER PROTESTANTS NOR CATHOLICS ARE FREE OF GREEDY REPRESENTATIVES SO THATS NOT REALLY HONEST EITHER . SO BASICALLY YOU AGREE WITH FARIKHAN THAT I AM A ” BLUE EYED DEVIL
          ‘FOR BEING A PROTESTANT … AND ME DISAGREEING ALSO MAKES ME ” STUPID ” …Is this accurate Catholicism ” sis ” ? Just curious …

          • filomena seiffert

            You are the one who accused the RCC of selling life in heaven. I just pointed out how in this age, many protestants pastors, promise cures and financial achievement telling people they will be blessed if they send them their money. They guarantee salvation if they give their life to Jesus, no matter how many sins they continue to commit. Luther said even if he committed 100 adulteries he would be saved still. He said people should sin to justify Jesus sacrifice. I ask you, is not this teaching from demons?

          • PARKS CURTIS

            Yes that was one of the greatest parts of the thesis was ending the corruption of the priesthood … that you call me ” stupid ” is very telling … My point was that was the real dividing point bon the Protestants whop you call satanic … then when i point out that that dividing point is not at all satanic you then say i am ” stupid ” … Honestly I don’t read Luther … I have read more Shoebat than I have read Luther and I read my bible and I n” stupidly ” listen to God who tells me we are under treasonous leadership with the greatest evil empire on earth infiltrating deceiving and colluding with our ” leaders ” NOW it definitely not the time for protestants and catholics to be accusing each other bon being ” satanic ” and ” stupid ” Because luther was right on some issues does not make him god that he is correct in all issues . nor any of us . I agree that a heart that loves god is not instead treasuring evil yet even Paul admits though he loves God he has struggles and still sins . do you understand that although faith without works is dead all of us fall short ? I am a protestant and I go by the bible i do not go by luther I disagree that marry is the 2nd sinless person ( What i understand the Catholics to believe ) but i would never hurt you or even call you ” stupid ” for believing so . Our children are being raped sexually mutilated / blown to pieces gained abducted sold and killed … all form the ideology that emanates from the satanic empire of Saudi that Trump just armed with 100 BILLION dollars worth of devises to kill … is it possible that that not holding him accountable for this is even more stupid and satanic than following the protestant bible I believe to be the words of Jesus our lord himself ?

          • filomena seiffert

            I APOLOGIZE FOR HAVING OFFENDED YOU but I do no accept anyone demonize the Church founded by Christ himself. I have heard the protestants demonize the Church so many times and tell the Catholics they are going to hell and it makes me very angry. Our leaders are colluding with those who make then rich and powerful. I do not know if you know I am Brazilian and what is going there makes any decent person to vomit. Every politician are getting bribes to favor big companies, they have stolen the country’s money and stashed it in fiscal paradise, meanwhile, the people are scrambling to survive. Not even the very low paying jobs are available for a high number of unemployed. The health care system is in shambles, street crimes is a pestilence and those demons stilling everything. The politicians in Brasil receive higher salaries then the European ones. I consider what they do treason. So far few are in prison. President which staged the coup to oust Dilma received millions in bribes and say he will not resign. As for Trump the writing was all over, all one needed to do was to acknowledge all his acts toward others in his life. Many here got upset with me when I pointed out his morals. Above all his very stupid.

          • PARKS CURTIS

            That is kind of like Muslim logic ” Because I have been Demonized now I will demonize ” I don’t claim to understand but I love the catholics …

    This is I remember it being sung in Russia,

    • Raph Sebastian

      Amen, brat! Truly beautiful hymns and prayers. Below is the Magnificat.

      The Magnificat — The Blessed Theotokos’ hymn of praise glorifying the LORD, her son, truly God and truly man. Our Savior.

      My soul magnifies the Lord
      And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior;
      Because He has regarded the lowliness of His handmaid;
      For behold, henceforth all generations shall call me blessed;
      Because He who is mighty has done great things for me,
      and holy is His name;
      And His mercy is from generation to generation
      on those who fear Him.
      He has shown might with His arm,
      He has scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.
      He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
      and has exalted the lowly.
      He has filled the hungry with good things,
      and the rich He has sent away empty.
      He has given help to Israel, his servant, mindful of His mercy
      Even as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity forever.

      • Something else. Hannah had a similar song as well.

  • Nan

    What is grievous is a) your error in spelling; b) your error in theology, assuming Catholics worship Mary. No. As is stated in the Bible, we call her Blessed:

    My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
    my spirit rejoices in God my Savior
    for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
    From this day all generations will call me blessed:
    the Almighty has done great things for me,
    and holy is his Name.

    He has mercy on those who fear him
    in every generation.
    He has shown the strength of his arm,
    he has scattered the proud in their conceit.

    He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
    and has lifted up the lowly.
    He has filled the hungry with good things,
    and the rich he has sent away empty.

    He has come to the help of his servant Israel
    for he remembered his promise of mercy,
    the promise he made to our fathers,
    to Abraham and his children forever.

    (Lk 1:46-55)

      If they can’t or won’t answer after reading this piece or any of the ones leading up to this, they have no intentions of acknowledging or even coming close to agreeing who is the Ark.

      If “they” actually read this piece or any of the ones leading up to this no where that I could detect have you ever said Mary was above Jesus in any shape or form.

      Perhaps these wise folks could point that out for me because well I’m not the brightest bulb in the string.

      Just to rub some ointment on their wound, the the Ark is Mary.

      Jesus is the ark of the covenant a vessel that contains the uncorrupted following on the 10 commandments ( which are often in capital letters ) the added commandment is really just a retelling of all the other commandments including the first which is about honesty / giving credit where it’s due and not where it is not … the word of God is the truth and Jesus is the physical living embodiment of our treasure chest of truth who like our Crusaders inspired by him is willing to face being pieced to death ,,, sacrificing and facing torture and death so others may have freedom

          well Walid I NEVER SAID THAT I MIGHT NOT BE INCORREECT BUT AT LEAST I HAD THE COURAGE TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION AS MY IMPRESSION was … I still maintain the ark contains the word of God and is a vessel as Jesus is . “All you want ” DOES NOT ACTUALLY FIT THAT YOPU ASKED FOR A QUESTION AND AS A STUDENT ( DUE TO FIGHTING MUSLIMS I ADMIT I HAVE HEAD INJURIES AND DIFFICULTY READING FROM VISION ) but yes I do give you the benefit of the doubt as M B AITHOITY (hence Valid Walid a brotherly nick name in the spirit of refuting the poor ” proofs ” I have seen against this . . YOU TOO AND SOME OF THE ATTACKERS ( a lot of animosity against Protestants … I don’t hold a treasonous pope against the Catholics BTW … Nor do I agree with luthers deeming Crusades unnecessary we need to shore up the gap and loch shields as you pointed out as well ) Yes our treasonous leader really does relate to every article but that is not all I want to talk about my main thing you are failing to answer is : was Muhammad a muslim or a radical Muslim , did he practice so called radical islam or did he just found Islam ? that is actually the main thing that can save us and the main thing I want to talk about I will reread your article today ( I will pull it up on a big screen and read it as I consider it important as I do the Antichrist identification . note though todat trump is using Clintons ” witch hunt ” argument … obviously there is no witch hunt when these leftist elitists are colluding with jihadists ,,, sharing intel of our ally Israel to our enemy Russia is a lesser issue but the greatewr one has no great area one we establish if ” radicalized Muslim ” is an honest description ogf Muhammad and the first Muslims that Islam reaches are the ” best Muslims ” . I have also asked you many other questions like if you believe estrogen (snarkasm alert ) is the Anti Christ … my obeveration is that at this point only he and the pope seem to fit the description . you do use consecutive caps waliod as do others you give preferential treatment to and today I noticed you swept an insightful factual comment about Monika walker to the bottom back past a year ago … that is not the same treatment you give non decenters who merely agree with everything … Critical thinking has virtually left the political forums I ask that you be consistent in your claims and even if facts are upsetting to people let them remain in full sight … that is how political civil debate works , things are accomplished by addressing issues not hiding them … yes it is bothersome that after I pointed out I funded gellers and she appeased the whims of the ignorant you are now censoring me as well … I should not be censored weather I fund either of you or not and that I did doesn’t mean anything other than how little you appreciate someone speaking up … I have spoken up for you and been censored too ironically valid Walid … rise above that as you claim you do and lets just discuss the priority issues as gentlemen and crusaerers for our common lord which is Jesus and HIS priorities right ? if the things you listed were all I wanted to talk about then why do I have so many other topics unanswered ? FOREMOST : Was Muhammad a radicalized Muslim or just a Muslim .???????????.. did he found Islam or did he found radical islam ????????????????? is their even one mention of ” radicalized: Islam / Muslims / imams ” in ANY of the Islamic texts ? ? Do not seek excuses to censor that are invalid Walid but please address these issues keeping in mind you said that the truth was the most important thing to prevail , remember ? I also have asked several times if you would allow me to submit an article ( I will even appease the caps issue though I personally feel wall to wall caps is more than justified on the subject ) These things I have wanted to discus and more not on you attributed list … Your take on my plans to shore up wiyth Hindus as well and coordinating with you sending operator friend ,…. and more Walid , I still respect the respectable parts and it is some of your own emphasis that helped me note the contradictions … Stay valid Walid https://www.facebook.com/1422700771314774/photos/a.1442129132705271.1073741827.1422700771314774/1843140392604141/?type=3&theater

      • Стефан Евгений

        welcome mega.

  • “He confounds the wise.”

    He did but you are not of the wise for if you were, you would have answered the question:

    “Go up Lord, to the place of your rest [heaven], you and the ark of your might!”. (Psalm 132:8)

    Do you see this “and”? This one word alone renders countless interpretations, books, websites, reformations and commentaries that claim that the Ark is Christ becomes worthless.

    None of these commentaries can answer a simple Jesus-style question: how do you paint the Ark as symbolic of Jesus if both, this Ark and Jesus went up to heaven?

    This word “and” leaves no room to maneuver. The only option is that God assumed into heaven a literal box called “the Ark of the Covenant”.

    But this is impossible, especially when Revelation 21:2–3 declares that “the dwelling place of God is with man.” God in heaven does not dwell with a box anymore. That plus the whole context of the Book of Hebrews and Jeremiah 3:16 was that God was done with such things.

    Some might argue that this prophecy pertains to the literal Ark and that David is simply going together with the Ark to the Temple in Jerusalem’s Mount Zion.

    But this too is impossible. The text clearly puts this matter to rest:

    “Because Lord Jehovah is pleased in Zion and he chose it a dwelling place. This is my rest to an eternity of eternities; here I shall sit because I desired it.”

    There is no question this is the heavenly not earthly Mount Zion where the Ark resides. The Bible even confirms this:

    And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament (Revelation 11:19)

    Is this mount Zion on earth? Never.

    But it even gets better when we examine translations of Psalms 132:8 from the Septuagint:

    Arise, O Lord, into thy resting place: thou and the ark, which thou hast sanctified [made holy, sinless]. (Psalm 132:8)

    Did the Jews mistranslate the Bible from Hebrew to Greek? Impossible. They understood that this ark was protected from sin “sanctified”.
    All this leaves us with only one option: the Ark is not Christ or a box but the Woman Who housed Christ in her womb.

      Brother Walid, if you have to repeat what your article already stated, then obviously the person didn’t bother to spend time to read it in the first place. They will not refute what you state, but would rather regurgitate the swill they learnt.

      There is no hope for the closed minded and for the arrogantly ignorant. Hopefully some day though the scaled fall from their eyes.

            In a sense Walid you offered Scripture, some manna, a “communal wafer”, a cracker to use a different parlance and they rejected.

            That’s what I was fumbling to get at.

          • I understood you Taurnil,

            I was just kidding that crackers are passing crackers.

            Its like the other issue with grape juice you brought up. Fruits and nuts passing fruit instead of wine.

            I think they changed it to grape juice because many had alcohol issues.But i think the devil wanted to simply destroy the communion by having folks offer the sacrifice of Cain.

      More research and study is needed on your part regarding the purpose of the ark and what it depicts. For example, the Ark was designed by God in detail, especially the cover construction and specific wood to be used, as a mirror image of His heavenly throne. Both Ezekiel and Rev describe the throne of God with the mercy seat and two cherubim covering it with God present. The acacia wood was chosen by God because it has no seeds.
      The Ark of the Covenant is a powerful symbol of the Temple and the laws of God. It is associated with the rule and authority of God. The Old Covenant looked forward to the New Covenant where the Holy Spirit was extended to the people of God on a progressive basis. The entire purpose was centred on the power of God and makes men extensions of His being by virtue of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Without the Holy Spirit being internalised, we could not keep God’s laws in their intent and we would pervert them to our own advantage. Judaism did this by their tradition and Christ castigated them for this fact.

      Escerpt from Summary of the Ark….http://www.ccg.org/z/P196z.html

      The way into the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy of Holies was made open for us from the death of Christ at Passover, when the temple veil was torn in two (Matt 27:51; Mk 15:38; Lk 23:45; Heb 6:19, 9:3; 10:20).

      We are the Holy of Holies and our hearts are the spiritual Ark of the Covenant as the repository of the law of God.

    Worship, προσκυνέω (pros-koo-neh’-o) belongs only to God.
    δουλεία, (douleia), or veneration ……to venerate” derives from the Latin verb, venerare, meaning to regard with reverence and respect.
    I’m so worn out by the outright dumbness, and lack of knowledge of what Catholics, and Orthodox actually believe.
    Has it ever occurred to people to find out what we teach by going to a source and not gotquestions dot com, but a Catholic or Orthodox site, or better yet ask a Priest.

    • Tom_mcewen

      This word worship is because the English translation 1591-1611 used the term and Greek was not used but God is an English speaking God it is like Allah is only an Arabic speaker. It is a heresy hard wired into the Protestants brain and wired with explosives if they try to replace it with veneration. Orthodox don’t even exist, when the American evangelicals went to Russia imagine how surprised they were to see Christians, strange pagan Christians, but Christian in any case. XB

    ‘measure the temple [test] the temple of God, and the altar and them that adore therein. But the court, which is without the temple, cast out, and measure it not [do not test it through persecution]: because it is given unto the Gentiles’ – makes sense now.
    For a long time it was not clear ‘whats up with the measuring? In order to rebuild to the exact copied dimensions? LOL, it’s obvious now.
    The Reformation, or as a friend calls the ‘The Protestant Deformation’ was an attack on the Church and an attempt to destroy it. Your note that “And the scripture confirms:
    “And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth” (Revelation 12:4).” was a good insight.
    I encourage you to continue your efforts, and pray for the continuing success of Shoebat.

    • Yes. If you notice Ezekiel’s Temple is so huge. This reflects on Christendom’s historic success and grand state.

  • Owen Schumacher

    A beautiful piece as usual, Walid. You “did not convert to Catholicism easily,” and neither did I! (I was accepted into the Orthodox Church last December.) I remember years ago when I was wrestling with the teachings of the early church, I had a dream whose symbolism I knew was in reference to Mary, and the dream told me that I had confined and misunderstood her and that later, after navigating a maze of confusion, I would understand her place and rightly respect her. Thanks so much for helping to fulfill this dream. It’s been a trying but rewarding process.

    Also, I love your point about Judith and Jael being types of Mary—and even Eve. Is God not a poet and the master of types and imagery? The picture of the pure, young woman destroying the head of evil is one of justice finally being done in the world. (May it happen sooner rather than later.) How beautiful it is that He gives the most godly of all women, the Theotokos, the good pleasure of destroying the head of the Devil. As Christ says to Mary and John—who by extension represents all Christians—“Woman, behold your son”; “son, behold your mother.” She is the mother of us all.

    • Beautiful comment brother Shcumacher. You remind me of my friend Roy Schoeman’s vision of Mary.

    A) Present with the Lord?
    B) Dead?

    This is what the Russian is trying to tell you.

    Russians see your type of comment as “no so intelligent”.

    These guys do not mince words. I know them well.

    Now you have a chance to make him appreciate an intelligent educational comment. This way he gets to visit Moscow someday and say that in the U.S. he met an intelligent guy named Thomas Lindsay.

    Okay?

    Now when you respond, can you answer my simple question?

  • He’s Russian and I am from the Middle East.

    We have a very bad temper and he doesn’t even drink Vodka and I do not drink scotch.

    Just imagine if we did.

    I guess he is an Orthodox fundamentalist and I am a Catholic Fundamentalist and we both like reading about bloody wars with Muslims and enjoy war victories like Sobieski and Lepanto and we love it. These guys knew how to kill Muslim Jihadis.

    Do you know Sobieski?

    Now that guy wasn’t some pussycat going round about telling people that Christian warfare was a sin.

    Or would you like me and the Russian to mellow out and chill as if the world is hunky-dory?

    What kind of love are you promoting these days? Teddy bear love? How to hug one another?

    • Raph Sebastian

      Oh boy, you know they hate history, brother Walid. They would like to whitewash the fact that it was the Catholics that saved all of Europe and prevented even their Protestant asshats from sniffing a carpet five times a day although some of them willingly converted and the rest were allied with the muslims.

      These modern day protesters will not go find out who King Jan Sobieski III is, nor will they care.

      Instead of being grateful to the Catholics, these morons attack what saved them so that centuries later they can profess their heresies and mock the Church the LORD founded.

      • I am afraid this alliance with Muslims will repeat as I see how Daniel puts it clearly that the one who broke from the covenant will be used by Antichrist to chase after Mary’s seed. It was in black and white this whole time. Theodore was doing all this research all the time on northern Europe’ progress into eugenics and such and he was insisting that these will be part of the Antichrist system.

        Of course, dummy me, instead of listening to the wise lad, I kept telling him ‘its only Islam stupid’.

        Well as it turns out it is Islam, but with an alliance.

        Strangely we find only two in scripture whom we can pin point as enemies of Antichrist:

        1-Rome
        2_Russia (the enemy of the north of Antichrist) when he gets bad news from the north and he goes to fight them.

        But of course Rome gives Antichrist a defeat and so will the Russians because right after that verse, Antichrist comes to his end.

        This leaves us with one conclusion: I am convinced the people of these two are the lamp stands. In other words, the Muslim, the Eugenics, the anti-Catholic Protestants will be killing the Orthodox and Catholic civilians.

        In the future I will most likely perfect my analysis so long I next time listen to young Theodore. Out of the mouth of babes I guess. I live and I learn.

        • Don’t forget one more important enemy, brother. The eastern flank will also rise against the Antichrist.

          • Explain yourself Trevor. I am all ears.

          • Daniel was told, “News from the north and east will trouble him,” and that could describe China coming to fight the Antichrist. Christianity is growing phenomenally there. Who knows…China could very well become Christianized within a decade. China is also dealing with the Uyghrs Muslim in the western provinces.

            Since Antichrist will drum up support of 200 million man army, China would have a vested interest to defeat the Antichrist to prevent those Uyghrs from returning home and waging a war to topple Beijing.

          • “hat could describe China coming to fight the Antichrist”

            But north of Turkey is Crimea which the Russian took and north of that is Russia.

          • I agree. I’m talking about what’s coming from the east.

            by your own definition you are yelling in all capital letters and should be censored … see how ridiculous leftist tandems are ./.,. hypocritical self contradiction irony / double standard … the hallmark trappings of the left . Because you throw a tantrum and a buch of other people ” like ” it and also don’t like truth does not mean truth has had ” ENOUGH ALREADY!” as noted earlier just because you cannot stand criticism of Liberal Dem Trump does not mean I am not allowed to re;later him to the subject … Just because he is not in the title of the articles does not mean the subject matter relates to him and you should be bvwasting time pressuring silence with a lemming brigade . YES BIBLICAL PROPHESIES RELATE TO OUR LEADERS YES tRump claiming to be one ” In The Church”and if he ” Will Join The Antichrist And Who Will Not” is relevant weather you FEEL like it is or not … I am sooty you don’t like facts … that does not mean i should be pressured and censored not to show them .IF estrogen ( Snack alert ) is indeed the Anti Christ and Trump is already praising him … why exactly should these sorts of things not be pointed out A
            : Because you don’t LIKE it … that is the M O of the leftist just like we are all supposed to call Bruce jenner a woman and Trump a ” conservative ” and when you don’t get your way based on feelings not facts you melt down even in the same fashion you describedd as ” yelling ” ( your determination not mine as a typed has no volume and many reasons such as easier reading can explain it ) anyway please stop showing tantrums and pretending things aren’t related that are … IOf you are insisting Trump is not ” in ” the Church then state that … stick with valid refutes and facts not just reality and rights of speech as you deem by your own double standards … Convert to conservative and answer the question : is Trump part of thev Church as he claims yes or no . If you insist that trump is lying you claim would have a little more validity and I also don’t agree Trump is a believer ” by the fruits ye shall know then ” ” truth not in ” … perhaps give some relevant refute rather than a simple tantrums and a denial altogether people have the right to establish a connectrion where your thinking will not allow . Stop beating around the bush : Is trump ” in the church ” or not ?

            I think if we are living in the Antichrist time, Trump is the world leader who fit the description the most. He consider himself better and smarter then everybody else, he is vain, proud, boisterous, malignant and so on. It seams to me the politicians of our days are all guided by demons.

    Do you honor your mother?

  • Julie LaBrecque

    Need citation from scripture e that states that giving proper honor and or recognition is what constitutes worship. Do you worship your mother because you love and adore her?

    • Doc

      Perhaps it would be helpful to explain the difference so that all can see.

      • Julie LaBrecque

        Doc – this is simple. Sacrifice is offered to God – this IS worship. If any one is offering a sacrifice to anybody, that constitutes idolatry. Read the persecution of the first 3 centuries of the church – they were good to ‘pinch the incense’ to the Roman gods/emperor’s.
        Scripture tells us that leaders deserve honor and praise – those that serve well we’re going be given double honor – so giving honor is not worship. Do you think it worship when subjects bow to a king or queen? The scripture has several places in which one bows to another – Bowing is not worship either.

        • Doc

          Then what is worship? No, offense but some catholics talk about Mary as if she’s the Redeemer. I listened to that catholic call-in show on EWTN radio again on Sirius XM satellite radio and the host praised Mary again and again and hardly mentioned Jesus (although when he did he emphasized that Jesus is the Savior).

          I’m perfectly willing to honor Mary up to a point. If I were to meet her in person I would want to hug her and thank her for being obedient to God and having the faith to give birth to the Savior. Then I would probably want to meet Moses, Isaiah, etc. I would love to see a genuine Marian apparition. LOVE TO. But I am puzzled as to where the line is drawn between giving Mary honor and worshipping Mary. I have seen people bow to images of Mary. Is this not worship? And if not, how is it not worship?

          Mary certainly deserves honor. The Bible says so. But why is it when I listen to some catholics talk they go on and on about Mary but hardly talk about Jesus?

          Sorry, it just bothers me. Maybe it shouldn’t. Maybe I just don’t see it from a catholic perspective but it seems like Mary is getting a lot of the praise that God deserves.

          Thoughts?

          • Julie LaBrecque

            Let me spell it out – sacrifice is offered to God – throughout the OT, all those sacrifices were offered to God – only God is offered sacrifice. I believe Israel once offered sacrifice es to Baal – this is when they played the harlot. Just because some Catholics talk a lot about Mary does not mean they worship her , nor does it mean that they ignore Jesus – but our worship is of the Trinity Doc – not just Jesus, there are three divine persons in the Godhead. I have yet to see a Protestant address the Triune God – should I jump up and down and accuse them of idolatry? There are many, many devotions within the Church – e.g., ST Joseph, St Anthony, St Padre, St Michael, — we also have what’s known as the Litany to the sacred Heart, the Litany to the Sacred Name, litany to His Holy face, the Divine Mercy, etc. The book of Revelation is explicit that the Saints offer up the prayers of those on earth.
            We have Eucharistic Adoration – also known as Holy Hour – in which the Eucharist is brought out of the Tabernacle and put in a monstrance – this is offering worship to Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament

          • Doc

            Protestants recognize the Trinity. I was baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. En nomine Pater, et Filius, et Spiritus Santus. I hope my Latin is not too bad. It’s been a long time.

            I also received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the most precious gift of all (other than salvation, of course).

          • Julie LaBrecque

            Ever considered a vocation to the priesthood or diaconate? Why not just join your local parish – after you’ve made acquaintances, you will be able to use your gifts where they are most needed? I’m glad to hear that you have received the Holy Spirit — do you realize that Mary is the spouse of the Holy Spirit??

          • Doc

            In so many words I am “warming to the concept” that Mary is for all intents and purposes God’s wife.

            As for the priesthood: I have no desire to take a vow of celibacy.

          • Julie LaBrecque

            It us so hard for me to not get frustrated – protestants supposed claim to fame is that they know the Bible inside and out – but that is all fallacy and fantasy. All they know us the verses that they use to make their doctrine. So what happened to ‘ One faith, one Lord, one baptism’s? I gave you a verse last week in which Solomon, King Solomon BOWED to his mother, the queen Mother – and here you are stating/insinuating and that bowing constitutes worship. Are those that bow to Queen Elizabeth guilty of worshipping her? All I can take from this is that you have been programmed by your protestant upbringing to believe everything they have ever taught you to be the gospel truth. David, the future King David, bows to Saul – I have yet to hear a protestant accuse David of worshipping Saul but I’ve heard hundreds of charges of worshipping Mary levied against Catholics. Doc – do you believe that Jesus loved His mother more then any other person in the world? Please, a simple ‘Yes’ or ‘No’

          • Doc

            Your frustration shows. It weakens your argument. You make good points. I do not know the answer to your question.

          • Julie LaBrecque

            Do you believe He broke the 4th commandment ?? There is your answer.

          • “Then what is worship?”

            To kiss a photo of Jesus because you know He is God is worship.
            To kiss a photo of your son because you recognize he is your son is not worship.

            Yet both incident have a kiss involved.

            Same goes for every bodily move.

            To kiss the image of Mary because you take her as your mother is not worship.
            To kiss the image of Christ because you know He is God the Son is worship.

            Had I bowed to a king is not worship.

            In fact scripture reveals the intent is what counts. John “fell down TO WORSHIP at the feet of the angel.” His reason for falling down is clearly spelt out. It was not to honor the angel but to worship and is WHY John was promptly rebuked by the angel.

            It wasn’t the bowing that upset the angel but John’s intent was to worship. John did not know it was an angel and thought it was God.

            If bowing was worship, why then when two angels approach edLot in the gateway of the city of Sodom, Lot sees them and he “bowed with his face to the ground.”

            And I ask you Doc, did Lot get rebuke from the angels?

            Hope this answers your concern.

            How come? Precisely because the two angels (quite unlike some Christians today), had enough sense to distinguish between honor and worship.

            “Intent is what counts.” Excellent.

            It occurs to me: Is this how the Antichrist will potentially deceive the very elect? Through their intent? Will only the pure in heart have the proper intent and escape the deception?

            It is important for one to not only know what one believes, but WHY one believes it. I am working on hoping to be able to answer any objection, so I hope you’ll forgive me if I probe sometimes.

            The devil has tried to sift me many times, Walid. Many times. I wonder if my future ministry is to take him on face to face–since the first time I had my back turned and only my fervent prayer to Jesus caused him to go away.

            Yet I know the dark corners in which he dwells and I do not fear them. Like a rat running from a flashlight and a club he must necessarily run from the Holy, irresistable Power of God.

          • Julie LaBrecque

            Are you afraid to express your love for your wife? For your mother? For you daughter? Just because we love others and express that love in highly visible ways does not detract nor diminish our love for God!! Mary is the greatest creature ever made, and this is ALL due to God’s grace – it was HIM that filled her with His Grace- so when we honor and praise her, we are merely honoring and praising God’s most magnificent creature. Have you found the verse that states that God will be the force that causes people to praise her? When you finally read the verse, will you then begin to praise her name?

          • Doc

            Thank you for referring to Mary as a “creature.” This says it all.

            By the way – May is known as ‘Mary’s Month’ – hence, a lot of programming this month will be Mary-centric.
            Did you know that the Jews celebrate the Feast of the Ark on July 2nd??? Well, guess what? The Church celebrates, on July 2nd, the Feast of the visitation of the Ark, Mary – to Elizabeth – coincidence – or divine providence???

          • Doc

            Coincidence or not? Hard to say. I’ve learned to read into things….but also not to necessarily automatically jump to conclusions.

            May is Mary month? That might explain things. I have not listened to EWTN that long, so I don’t have a baseline for what a regular episode of that show would be.

            I would like to thank you all for this discussion. I have gotten a lot out of it and if nothing else I hope I’ve helped you get closer to WHY you believe what you believe.

        • Ozibarb

          thanks for that reply, I didn’t know how to fully answer those who say we worship Mary. Another question for you, as you have been very helpful to me with your post (on the shroud) and your comments. Why do we say in the Hail Holy Queen prayer
          “poor banished children of Eve” when we are now children of Mary?

          • In the sense of adoption, yes.

          • Ozibarb

            Thanks Trevor. That makes sense. Sorry for asking stupid questions.

          • No, not at all. In fact, I was about to expand.

            I personally understand adoption better since I am adopted myself. My biological father died when I was 6, going on 7, and few years later, my mother remarried. My step-dad adopted my sister and me and we received his name, and for many years, I called him “dad.” My daughter, since she was 2, called my wife “mom,” even though my wife never gave birth to her.

            The concept can easily be applied with the Blessed Virgin Mary. That’s why we all call her Mother.

            St. Irenaeus is my go-to source for understanding why we view the Blessed Virgin this way. http://newadvent.org/fathers/0103519.htm

    Thomas, the Catholic Church (Russian Orthodox Thomas) has not saved me.

    That is because you are not in it.

    God has and is doing wonders, everywhere I look.
    I find Him walking with me.

    God does far more than walk with us Orthodox, he transforms our whole being in the holy mysteries, The Eucharist .

    Because I have to put up with parrots, who slander and twist the truth. I find the blockheaded ignorance astounding, when it comes from you lot, we don’t know our bibles. The Church came first then the bible, It was created from Orthodox Tradition. This is a small example of the pig swill that is churned out by Protestants.

    The dead saints not answering your prayers?

    Who said that they are dead?
    I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? Rev 6:9-10

    My God answers mine, what more can I ask for?
    This is my main problem, and it’s an Good one.

    In my little corner of the Soviet Union I’v seen more working of the miracles from God, and his Saints then what you have seen in your’e entire life. Even hardened KGB, turned white with shock.

    You would not have lasted long Thomas, you did not have a Russian Grandmother.

    Walid wrote: Therefore, the falling away is not exclusively what we see happening from time to time in the Vatican but is also a departure from the faith protesting Vatican’s authority, the Eucharist, the Church and Mary.

    Walid, the writing below (Against Heresies) is what clinched my belief that the Catholic Church is the true church. I believed the things I had been hearing and reading but there was still a small piece of hesitancy. Irenaeus’ Against Heresies, book III, chapter III, extinguished any doubt.

    When I started praying the rosary and would the say the Apostles Creed, I was not sure when I said that I believe in the Holy Catholic Church. But I continued to pray. When I pray the finding the child Jesus in the temple of the Joyful Mysteries, I ask the Grace of the mysteries of the finding the child Jesus to truly convert me. Eventually, I came across what I needed to know in my heart, mind and spirit.

    From Against Heresies, book III chapter III

    2. Since, however, it would be very tedious, in such a volume as this, to reckon up the successions of all the Churches, we do put to confusion all those who, in whatever manner, whether by an evil self-pleasing, by vainglory, or by blindness and perverse opinion, assemble in unauthorized meetings; [we do this, I say,] by indicating that tradition derived from the apostles, of the very great, the very ancient, and universally known Church founded and organized at Rome by the two most glorious apostles, Peter and Paul; as also [by pointing out] the faith preached to men, which comes down to our time by means of the successions of the bishops. For it is a matter of necessity that every Church should agree with this Church, on account of its pre-eminent authority,3313 that is, the faithful everywhere, 416
    inasmuch as the apostolical tradition has been preserved continuously by those [faithful men] who exist everywhere.

    Reading this article made me twice sad.
    I’m in the way to 1st Communion and Charisma/Confirmation in Pentecosts, after my entire life (40+ years) in the AOG.
    I recognize both THE Church and THE Eucharist as God gifts and “commandments” to be bound to.
    But I’ve been nourishing the hope for a better Spiritual Status (before God) of (some) Protestant congregations.
    The pinpoint accuracy about 1/3 of the stars falling relating to the census (I’ve check on the web…) is chilling.
    My double sadness is about:
    1 – the striking clarity (now that Walid explained…) on the ones self-called Christians who refuse the Eucharist and authority of THE church (there is ony ONE corner stone and, therefore, ONE building)
    2 – the continued claim that all their opinions (dogmas…) are authoritative because they possess the Spirit! But who Spirit?
    After all, how could the Holy Spirit inhabit in those who don’t Venerate the Holy Mother of God, and reject the “truly flesh” and “truly blood” of Jesus Christ. Didn’t our Lord abide to the commandment “Honor thy father and thy mother”?
    Hopefully, I’m not seeing this right. After all, what do I know…
    Thanks Walid.

    • You got it FF, there are ones who are proclaimed Christians because they “obeyed Christ’s commandments” and then there are ones who are self-proclaimed who refuse to obey Christ’s commandments.

      Christ said “if you love Me you shall obey My commandments”.

      Its that simple.

      • So whats going on? It seems like a phenomenon. Do you have the story? Remember this easter when a chuck came here and announced they too converted?

        It must be the Brick effect.

          I’ve “landed” on shoebat.com in 2013, when my perception of incoherence regarding Protestant doctrine had reached its peak concerning the “Jesus may come now”, which I couldn’t found nowhere.
          But what triggered the shift towards Catholicism was the quote of Cardinal Newman (it self a convert from reformation): “To be deep in history is to cease to be Protestant”.

    Wow. Thank you Walid for this fulfilling manna.

    For reasons I can’t quite put my finger on this hit me on the broadside in a wondrous way;

    And with God an agreement is an agreement. It is a covenant. History reveals and debunks all the false claims. Had Christ began a revolt against Rome, He would have broken the covenant with the Romans and this is another reason why God stood against the Jews on this one. …

    I was always under the impression the Jews hated Romans which I’m sure there were since they were expecting a king in an earthly sense not realizing the one they would eventually get be the creator Himself encompassing Heaven and earth. I did not know there was a treaty between Rome and Israel. That was very insightful.

  • Methusalem

    A lot of interesting stuff. I have several questions:

    1. What role does the Vatican plays after Vatican II – and its decision to embrace the anti-Christ Islam? We know about Protestant churches, but why is the Vatican reluctant to support persecuted Christians in the Middle East and Africa? Why are catholic organizations helping the importation of millions of Muslim warriors into Europe?
    2. One of the oldest churches, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church is the only pre-Reformation branch of Christianity which does not recognize Maccabees I and II as Scripture. Instead, they have three unique books under the similar title of “Meqabyan.”
    3. I read an article, under the title, “Palestinians Running the Show…in Chile?” in disbelief;

    “Palestinian-Chileans are Christian, at rates over 99%, split between Orthodox Christianity and Catholicism. Yet one would never know it. Last month:
    The Palestinian Federation of Chile warned the Jewish communityon Monday not to “play with fire” in a statement regarding Israel’s decision to bar the federation’s executive director, Anwar Makhlouf, from entering the country last week.
    This is strong language. To understand these Palestinian-Chileans, one must understand Orthodox Christianity in the Muslim world. According to the Palestinian Orthodox Christian bishop of the Holy Land, Sebastia Theodosios (Atallah Hanna):

    “We Christians also say Allahu Akbar. This is an expression of our understanding that the Creator is great. We don’t want this phrase to be related to terrorism and crimes.
    We refuse to associate these words with massacres and murders.
    We speak against using this phrase in this context. Those who do, they insult our religion and our religious values.
    Those using these words while taking some unreligious, unspiritual, uncivilized actions are harming the religion.
    Allahu Akbar is an expression of our faith.”

    http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2017/05/palestinians_running_the_showin_chile.html

    • “We Christians also say Allahu Akbar.”

      The article already mentioned Arab syncretists and even provided a LINK.

      We did not make an exception for these for they are part of the “host” so its not even necessary for the discussion here.

      • Tom_mcewen

        Do you have a way in Arabic that Muslims can access this in Palestine? Mary is known of but only through the Gnostic writing incorporated in the Koran. I would think this would be some slow growing grass under the concrete.

  • Doc

    John said unto him, Teacher, we saw one casting out demons in your name; and we forbade him because he followed us not. But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man who shall do a mighty work in my name, and be able to quickly speak evil of me. For he that is not against us is for us” (Mk. 9:38-40)

    To my mind this renders apostolic succession a GOOD thing, BUT NOT ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. Now I will be the first to admit that one thing wrong with Protestantism/Evangelism is that anybody can go start a church if they feel “led” by the Lord. So there does need to be some standards. But I believe Jesus states here that not every legitimate work on behalf of Christ necessarily has to go through apostolic succession.

    • Yes but make sure you are not focusing on the exception making it the rule. This is a similar story of the Samaritan who was the exception, not the rule.

      • Doc

        Please explain.

    • Sorry but I disagree with you.

      Protestants like using this to prove their argument as correct however, St. Paul render so their argument moot.

      While Apollos was in Corinth, Paul passed through the inland regions and came to Ephesus, where he found some disciples. 2 He said to them, ‘Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you became believers?’ They replied, ‘No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.’ 3 Then he said, ‘Into what then were you baptized?’ They answered, ‘Into John’s baptism.’ 4 Paul said, ‘John baptized with the baptism of repentance, telling the people to believe in the one who was to come after him, that is, in Jesus.’ 5 On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 When Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied— 7 altogether there were about twelve of them. (Acts 19)

      This also render moot all those who claim all they need is just the Holy Spirit. St. Paul who received the Holy Spirit through the laying of hands earlier and cited in the article above proves the Apostolic succession. How could the disciples of John the Baptist not hear of the Holy Spirit since John saw the Holy Spirit descend on Christ at His baptism?

      • Doc

        You make a good point that non-apostolic service is prone to error, and that’s why we must be careful. I still think Jesus was saying we should not reject those who serve outside the strict church heirarchy.

        • I counter that it makes necessary to prevent error.

        • Julie LaBrecque

          Why would St Paul have to go meet with Cephas ” to make sure he wasn’t running in vain’ if your theory is correct? How in the world can you believe that it is OK for MEN to start their own churches that compete with the church that Christ built? This is tantamount to elevating oneself to be higher than the Lord? Do you not recall what happened to the rebels known as Korah and company – they thought God spoke to them as well as he spoke to Moses – this is exactly what we see happening today – 6
          Yet God Almighty opened up the earth and they went down alive. Can you tell me what makes today’s rebels any different? If they are not punished in the same way, then God owes Korah and company an apology.

      Uh Walid. You are asking for something he cannot speak off lest calamity falls his way. I think he may have been struck by the equivalent of George Carlin’s seven dirty words that cannot be said “on air”.

  • If your eyes were so much on Jesus you would explain the nine lethal words that destroys your faulty theology. I search the scriptures which means my eyes is more on Jesus than you.

  • Indeed, everything is about the works of Christ Who chose an Ark to dwell in it and reborn from it. So without the Works of Christ kiss YOUR butt goodbye.

  • Kamau41

    Your faulty theology has already fallen on deaf ears.

  • So if the Ark is “nothing more than God’s works” why would a) God chose two ancient Israelites gifted to build the originals Ark of the Covenant, and b) why would Jesus come down from heaven, for our salvation, be born of the Virgin Mary, the Ark of the New Covenant?

  • So in other words, Jesus made the mistake of authorizing the apostles having the priesthood.

    No, I will not take a chance with my soul and trust your eisegesis. I trust the wisdom Jesus displayed when He chose the twelve to appoint apostles and priests in succession to carry on His commission.

  • Tom_mcewen

    300 years, St Mark was the ekklesia katholikos Bishop of Alexandria in 52AD says the apostolic Church of the Coptic ( the original Egyptians) who made him Bishop. St Peter was the Catholic Bishop of Antioch, Peter was replaced by Evodious, who made him a Bishop and sent him. The next Bishop was Ignatius, the disciple of St John the Bishop of Ephesus and a apostle. We have Ignatius seven letters describing the practices of worship which are Catholic. Who sent him? St Peter went to Rome sometime after 53AD and was the Bishop of Rome until October 64 when he was martyred under Nero, he was replaced by Bishop Linus, then Bishop Aracletus, then Clement who writing the Catholic Church still holds. And twenty more until 311AD your Protestant theory of when the Catholic Church started, no doubt by Constantine, no secular historical backing for you just claimed zero. You wonder why people don’t trust you, it is because you lie. Don’t trust a thief, Nor trust the word of a liar.

In many instances and go look it up yourself, Walid has shown the many references in the Old and New Testaments their intercession for us does not mean they are shortcut.

  • Tatyana,

    The article sums up how to recognize the five worthy virgins.

    The Five worthy virgins would dress up for the King and sing Psalms for the King of Kings and are prepared for the King’s wedding. The unworthy five virgins come to the wedding improperly dressed.

    The King will then tell one of these unwise virgins “Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
    Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.”

    Improper dress code and improper behavior is key.

    None of these would visit Trump dressed like they do, yet when they visit the King of Kings they dress improperly. So indeed you shall know them by their dress and by the music.

    All these years I spoke in these churches, you would find me the only one sitting while they all stood for the rock band. I only stood when there were beautiful hymns which I discovered later on they were written by Catholics. Even when I went speaking and I was the center focus, I sat. My soul could not stand the noise and I always told myself “something is very wrong with this picture”.

    • Tatyana Medvedev

      Wow! What an amazing way to tie in the dress code to the Lord’s feast with our approach to worship and with the Ten Virgins. It makes complete sense. Through our worship we hope to approach Him. But Jesus spoke of proper attire that we need to clothe ourselves in before doing so. I too love the old hymns. Also the chanting and the choir singing at the Orthodox liturgy. During the Soviet Union, my Pentecostal community also had reverence for that kind of singing. Now upon moving to this country all those people have taken on the charismatic style of singing with the rock band on the stage – to stay relevant, to hold on to the youth, they say. It proves the deception of the Protestant teaching at the core – that anyone can interpret the Word and is his own authority – and so nothing is solid in that denomination. A new teacher will come around, just like Kenneth Hagin in the 60’s and start his own theology and deceive millions. So whatever is cool, relevant and hip always wins while traditional teaching loses. And no one can stop it. A mentally ill person can start his own theology and claim that the Lord revealed it to him and people will believe. It’s insane. What Luther started is now many centuries later proved to me so incredibly heretic. The only two branches of Christianity that haven’t changed are the Catholics and the Orthodox. To me Orthodox even more than Catholics because I feel the the Catholic Church did evolve more. But for the most part – both are beacons of the Apostolic model.

      • Now you understand why Russia wants to prohibit this madness and why I believe the two (Orthodox and Catholic) are the two lamp stands and the two poles that lift up the Ark. It is all prophetic. The two peoples will suffer (two witnesses). Two witnesses of what? The truth. The Altar in Revelation 12. This is why it says they who adore the Altar. This is the Altar of Sacrifice where the perpetual sacrifice happens with the Eucharist.

        Once you understand all this, you can unlock all the hidden meaning. Even Antichrist is threatened from the North in Daniel. North of Turkey is Russia. And then you have the Romans defeat him (Catholics). The two witnesses in the end will defeat Antichrist and then the saints will arise “Come up hither”.

        This is the “rapture” they are all talking about which they are not even included in it.

        The reason you understand is that you are from the East and your family raised you well.

    I presume you do not do this for you believe she is dead.

  • “He revealed HImself to me.”

    If we ask “was it through a pillar of fire” you would be “offended” and if we ask “was it audible” you will be offended and if we ask “are you the one or should we wait for another” you might also be offended which fulfills “And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”

    The article is about which side betrays the other. Instead of commenting on this, you want want to tell us about your offense?

    We would like to hear of your enduring to the end since that is salvation, not claiming that God speaks to you which proves nothing.

    So you saw an image of Mary in 3d and it caused you to leave when you did see it in 2d in movies but that was okay.

    Now you know that a 3d is better than 2d because 3 is the Trinity.

    Catholics like everything in 3d while Protestants want it in only 2d and want the Holy Family to be small under the tree while Catholics like it supersize.

    If you feel I have insulted you, then I am sorry, but we are at war, it was not a war we sought. The war of Elizabethan England and Catholic Spain and the American colonial war against the The Church of England is the mother of this war and the first victim of war is always truth. I see propaganda of the American colonial experience 1740-90AD in your answers, I listen to the apostolic fathers first not the American colonial experience. If you have a mixture of understanding then I will listen. Propaganda not so.

  • So I guess a Nazi haircut will increase attendants.

  • So glad to see an attempt to explain the verse. Notice there are a ton of comments who avoided the topic and ONLY you addressed it. This speaks volumes on:

    1- how Protestants care about the Word of God. They really don’t.
    2- So lets see, you stated The “and” in verse 8 definitely must be referring to the Lord and something else. When Christ was in the flesh he had a temporary dwelling place (like the Ark). Then he was resurrected in a glorified one and subsequently assumed to heaven in it in Acts. It was a physical body, for example, the Apostle Thomas was able to feel the holes in His hands.

    ” possible that this “and” could be referring to the body Christ used when he was incarnate and then resurrected in?”

    This would make Christ a double. But now what do you do with the end of Revelation 11 where the Ark appears again. Mind you the Ark here is described as a “Woman”. Is Jesus a female with a double body?

    2- Why not just accept its Mary? Why avoid the most obvious? Is it fear that the “Catholics are right”?

    3- And what do you do with David where God told him that from his belly comes the Messiah? Its a Woman. Again.

    Its the Assumption of Mary just as all of Christian history taught.

    Also, could then this verse be a prophetic verse about the assumption?

  • Thomas,

    I was expecting a wittier response like. ‘Walid, here is why your interpretation of Psalm 132 is faulty’. But all your comments have nothing to do with the topic of the article. It is like graffiti on my walls which if I whitewash you complain and if I don’t you still complain.

    Why are you unable to answer a simple question?

  • Well, we are all awaiting your golden nuggets. How do you interpret Psalm 132? You have now posted a dozen comments without explaining Psalm 132 for us.

    Bring forth your case that we may know that you are gods, tell us of the things to come? Or are you nothing and they who follow you are an abomination?

  • ” I hate it.”

    You are not supposed to hate Thomas.

  • Welcome back home Tatyana,

    I did not know that you are a convert. I had thought you might have been born and grew up Orthodox. And now you suffer rejection from your family and relatives. Send them to us and have them bring all their reasons and arguments and we will show it for the world to see. Here you will always have a family. So glad to see you grow in the knowledge of the truth. Have you met the rest here? There are some decent people who would love to exchange struggles as you have endured.

    But be strong till the end.

    Christos Vincit.

  • “You mentioned sidebar that those Protestants who claim to be prophets and exercise power to cast out demons are false”

    When it comes to what I write or say, always quote my exact statements.

    What I wrote was this:

    “Even Christ Himself, when He judges in Matthew 25 reveals this fact that we are no dealing with pagans. He is not judging heathens but separatists. Why else do they say “we healed in your name and cast devils …”?

    Yet He damns them because they either did nothing or participated in persecuting the true Church during the reign of Antichrist and is why He tells them of their persecutions: “just as you did it to the least of these My brethren you did it unto Me”.

    So where did I say “hose Protestants who claim to be prophets and exercise power to cast out demons are false.”?

    The name of Christ is powerful, but it does not guarantee the person using that name salvation.

      “Salvation is from the Jews.” John 4:22. Mary is a Jew. Why does all hell break loose when there is even the slightest mention of her name? Based on this scripture, words from the Lord’s own mouth, we could, with complete integrity to the meaning of this verse, insert “Salvation is from Mary.”

      • Julie

        Our archbishop re-consecrated our archdiocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We had standing room only at the Cathedral.

        He just appointed a priest to be our head of liturgy and they are working on authentic renewal of the liturgy. finally.

        • Julie LaBrecque

          Wonderful!!! I was at Old St. Joseph’s, Diocese of OK, for a friend who completed the consecration to Mary – after vigil Mass, they had a formal ceremony – was on the 100,the anniversary, May 13 – short but sweet, it was packed too!! They had 13 participants in the consecration – there was a statue of Our Lady of Fatima that ‘on loan’ from Immaculate Conception Parish.

          • Julie

            Yes…I would also like our parish to do the special consecration that is re-worded, I think it is called, ‘Glories of Mary?’….and it was in our Catholic newspaper last year. It his Montfort’s, but the language is modern…yet the same intent…daily prayers for 33 days.

            I have had a tremendous, it seems, things all happen at once which were on the destructive side including my jetta I had saved money to give it another 200k….and it began falling apart….very strange…and oother things, some at the time, tragic…

            But then I looked at the world and how precarious it is, and began to offer all of this ‘job experience’ as reparation for my sins and the world’s….use it all as an offering to Christ, His mercy….things are slowly turning around and being restored….but I have a ‘new’ car….a 99 camry, no more of these complicated electronic cars….

            We have dangerous months ahead….a priest old me a long time ago he thought the triumph would take a 100 years or so…and I believe, and heard this…that the world won’t see it much as it will begin in families…one family at a time….and now starting the ‘life of St. Joseph’ who never sought anything of others….very much into the hidden life….as Mary was as well…

          • Julie

            There is a new consecration out there that is modified…and the language easier to understand.

            The consecration calls us to pray the Magnificat after communion and to pray 3 Pater’s and Ave’s each day….I am giving my talk at my parish on my past missionary experience…and am going to share as well my experience with liberation theology, the Marxism within the priesthood, the junk talk back home in Seattle…no longer the same city I knew now…..and Mary.

            We are in our own parish boundary now and it is quite liberal…and active active active….

          Violent or graphic content

          Real depictions of graphic or violent content:

          Increasingly, YouTube is becoming an outlet for citizen journalists, documentarians and other users to publish accounts of what is happening in their daily lives. It is inevitable that some of these videos will contain content that is violent or graphic in nature.

          If the violence shown in your video is particularly graphic, please make sure to post as much information as possible in the title and metadata to help viewers understand what they are seeing. Providing documentary or educational context can help the viewer, and our reviewers, understand why they may be seeing the disturbing content.

          It’s not okay to post violent or gory content that’s primarily intended to be shocking, sensational or disrespectful. If a video is particularly graphic or disturbing, it should be balanced with additional context and information. For instance, a citizen journalist who captures footage of protesters being beaten and uploads it with relevant information (date, location, context, etc) would likely be allowed. However, posting the same footage without contextual or educational information may be considered gratuitous and may be removed from the site.

            I understand you are angry for not been aloud to voice your concerns. I can not enter the fight, I am too old for that, besides I want to have some peace. I love animals more then I love humans and the reason is they are innocent creatures. I pray to God daily to free them from evil humans. We are far beyond understanding all God’s creation is important to Him, and we have no right to cause pain or destroy them. God created the animals to happy and free. as for the pope he is trying to bring peace to the world as a division in religion has cause many wars, he is a good Christian. We need to understand all beings are God’s children, we have no right to discriminate anyone because race, religion, color or any other difference. We have no right to judge, only God can just. Remember Jesus preached to the Samaritans, even gave the example of the good Samaritan who took the man who had been assaulted and was very ill, while the Jew, the priest ignored the the Samaritan took him to a inn and paid the owner to care for him. Let us to thank God for the grace to belong to Jesus sheepfold and feel sorry for Muslims, they did not asked to be borne in such a rigid way of life, where freedom is just a dream, especially for woman.

      • Ignacio

        Walid I have a doubt with this part in scripture:

        Judges 7:5
        “Separate those who lap the water with their tongues as a dog laps from those who kneel down to drink.” Three hundred of them drank from cupped hands, lapping like dogs. All the rest got down on their knees to drink. The Lord said to Gideon, “With the three hundred men that lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hands.”

        I know God chose those who lapped, but didn’t they take the water first with their hands? just like some catholics do today in the communion? I myself take it directly with the mouth since I came back to the faith but I was just wondering about this because those who got on their knees to drink took the water directly just as the people who take communion directly.

        We can also interpret it by saying that those who take the communion direcly do as the ones who lapped the water, while those who take it with their hands are the ones who kneeled?

        I suspect that you are right and that taking communion directly with the tongue is the better thing to do, if not because when in case of doubt we must always see what the first fathers and tradition says. But could you elaborate on this please?

  • No we don’t have love. We are loveless and impossible cut-throats full of anger and hatred … any more graffiti you like to spray on our wall?

    Wow… l have to admit l often don’t read all your articles, interesting as they are because l am not academic!! However, l went to a Catholic Convent boarding school for ten years as a kid and from an early age loved Jesus. I spent my teenage years pursuing a career in the pop world then moved to Rome and was ‘saved’ in an evangelical church. At the time it was typical to believe that the antichrist was the Pope and missionaries would come to Rome to convert Catholics away from apostasy. I have never felt alienated from Catholics as such but as a modern miss didn’t like the liturgy, the statues and the like.
    Does this mean l need to back to my Catholic roots to be on the ‘narrow road’? I have fear of the Lord and don’t want to live a compromised Christian life. Please answer me. Thanks

    • Thank you Francesca,

      I guess the answer to your question is in the article. You stated “missionaries would come to Rome to convert Catholics away from apostasy.”

      And where were these ‘missionaries’ converting Muslims? They were nowhere to be found. The whole goal is to fulfill abandoning the covenant and the Altar which Revelation clearly reveals these will be the court that is given to Antichrist.

      Just look at all the comments on this article and see for yourself the reaction of “Evangelicals” when confronted with a simple verse Psalm 132:8. Not one was able to answer and they all claimed to love the Bible.

      They do not “love the Bible” for if they did they would interpret instead of attacking Mary.

      Is the Church motherless? Hardly. Mary is our Mother. Even God chose to have a Mother.

      Why is it then that scripture differentiate between the seed of the woman and others?

      It is because the Bible, God foreknew what is coming, a mass exodus.

      As far as the statues, none of us would mind watching Jesus, Mary, Joseph in 2d on television, but in 3d people object?

      I’d rather have a 3d image of Christ instead of a photo in 2d image.

      Thats my preference.

      Hope to hear back from you Francesca.

    Explain to us Psalm 132 then. Is the Ark Jesus and if it resembles Jesus how is Jesus gone up to heaven with Jesus?

  • Wilma Mills

    Some “grasshopper” info: Off topic of course: The woman in Rev. 12 is not Mary or the church. She’s Israel. Remember Joseph’s dream. The sun, moon, and stars all bowed down to him. The sun was Jacob. The Moon was his Mother Rachel, and the stars were his brothers. Joseph himself would be the 12th star.
    The tribulation is “the time of Jacob’s trouble.”

    • “Off topic of course:”

      Annoying grasshoppers. Can’t answer who the Ark is in Psalm 132 so they change the subject.

      • Wilma Mills

        I read it, KJV, it sounds to me like David told the LORD he would not give sleep to his eyes nor go up to his bed till he made a resting place for Him. He found the ark . He told the LORD to go up to His resting place, which was the ark, a replica of the one in the Heavenly Mt. Zion.

        • You don’t get it Willma.

          The Ark in Psalm 132 went to rest on Zion for EVER.

          Read the text again.

          This is also confirmed in Revelation 11 where HEAVEN was opened up and the ARK was seen.

          You can’t read Psalm 132 without Revelation 11. Impossible.

          So we know that in Psalm 132 it was speaking of the Ark assuming to heaven.

          Apparently you did not read the article carefully. Typical grasshopper method (I say that with a smile so do not get offended).

          We have to get you out of grasshopper mode and into saintly mode so please help us cooperate with you.

          So now that the Ark is in HEAVEN, what must you do with Psalm 132:8 which the rest of the context states its in its resting place forever. This cannot be literal mount Zion on earth.

          See the dilemma?

          When you re-visit the chapter, please do not do what grasshoppers do. Examine carefully the Word of God.

          • Wilma Mills

            I’ve given my answer on verse 8 above. Verse 18 says Yahweh chose Zion for his habitation.
            He promised David that his descendant (Christ) would rule from there. He will literally rule from there during the 1000 yr. reign, after his second coming. Then after the last resurrection and judgement of the dead (unsaved) God will rule the new heaven and earth from the New Jerusalem that comes down from heaven.

        Verse 8: ” Arise O LORD (Jahovah, YAHWEH), with the ‘ ark of thy strength.'” If it’s a Who, it is Christ. Mary is not His strength.

        • Did you even examine the verse? No.

          How is Christ risen with the Ark who is Christ? Do we have two Christs?

          Get back to the drawing board.

          Need a chalk?

          • Wilma Mills

            I know that you know, when the word LORD (all caps) is used, it was actually the word YHWH (Yahweh.) “God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself.” So in a sense they both rose. Not two Christs, but the first and second persons of the trinity. If the ark is a person, Christ is the person. “In him was the fullness of the Godhead bodily.”

          • Tom_mcewen

            This psalm 132 aligned perfectly with Luke when Mary is addressed as Chaire Kecharitomeno, the sense of holy and without sin are the same in Greek. I know the Protestants who do not use typology but verses would quote For all have sinned, come short of the glory of God

          • I was thinking about that the other day, what you wrote here “of course, would and do include Mary in this sin, but not Christ, but he legally is part of the set of all.”

            Indeed. As they say “all is all” and by that they are checkmated. Its the same “all the nations” argument they use when Zechariah says that all the nations of the earth come against Jerusalem.

          • Tom_mcewen

            Have you got feedback on this excellent teaching by any members of the clergy? I find this an excellent defense of the Catholic teaching on Mary. I know Protestantism is conflicted on Jesus and Mary, if they should spit or not. I am not sure that claiming I AM SAVED is not in the LORD LORD Footlocker stamped Store in Hell. When young I broke my arm then bored with only one arm blew my lip off with a firecracker by putting inside a aircraft model and my dad saying My son has brain damage, when he saw the blood all over the house.

Why I am alive is a puzzle to me.

  • Annoying grasshoppers. Can’t answer who the Ark is in Psalm 132 so they change the subject..

  • Brendan,

    Glad to see you abandon your old theory about Christ having two bodies.

    But still yet, now you state that the Ark is “the believers resurrection” which will make null and void EVERY verse in scripture where the Ark is mentioned where the Holy Spirit resided in the Temple.

    Now if we take every verse in the Bible where Ark is mentioned and we superimpose “body of the believers” it would make zero sense.

    So the vail that separated us (the believers) from the holy place where the Ark resided, and when that vail was torn, we can now walk in and enter to the Ark (the believers)?

    And the Ark that was carried by the priests who led the people, now they carried “the believers” who led the “believers”?

    Nothing will make sense.

    “disagree that it is Mary”

    Why? Did not Mary house the “manna from heaven” who was Jesus? She did not house God in her Womb?

    All the ancients were wrong until Brendan showed up?

    Mind you. No one interpreted the Ark as you did from the first century till now. Why?

    And why can’t any of your brethren “the believers” answer our question? Look at their comments. Everyone of them changes the subject and not one even attempts to answer the questions.

    You tried, but your answers are found wanting for in one day you make Christ a double as if when heaven opens up in Rev 11, Jesus would be presenting His old body …

    And now you changed your mind in few hours to make the Ark something else, anything but Mary.

    But you will not find a single Christian who rejected the Ark as Mary in ancient times till even Luther and Calvin.

    This view that the Ark is not Mary is recent.

  • Very strange. You agree with Brendan, and Brendan even clicks on a “like” about your agreement to later Brendan abandons that theory *(which you agreed with).

    Now what will you do?

    The verse “deceiving and being deceived” fits like a glove, 100% which proves beyond shadow of a doubt that what we are dealing with here are heretics.

  • FALSE.

    When you provide links you need to bring in the quote to prove your case. This is why I do not allow links without the quote.

    I had to do your homework and read:

    “He said, “Behold my hands and feet, that it is, I, myself.” It was to establish his identity, that he was the very same Jesus whom they had followed, whom at last they had deserted, whom they had beheld afar off crucified and slain, and whom they had carried to the tomb in the gloom of the evening; it was the very same Christ who was now before them, and they might know it, for there was the seal of his sufferings upon him. He was the same person; the hands and feet could testify to that.”

    IT IS THE SAME BODY. Stop peddling nonsense which you can’t provide evidence for. To say Jesus had two bodies is deception, gnosticism and plain heretical.

  • “Like I said I’m no scholar”

    No problem.

    “Just a lay person trying to understand the Word. ”

    Again, no problem.

    “I don’t mean to argue with you”

    No argument. It is that when I see a friend fall into a heretical interpretation I must then correct and warn. Just looking after you thats all.

    “and if this is irritating or anything I won’t keep it going. I like being able to talk about it.”

    No irritation, just fear you do not fall for the snares of the devil thats all.

    “I see what you’re saying about Mary now when you mention the Ark in the temple but I would interpret that differently.”

    Okay. No problem. But please do not mind me when I point what constitutes heresy. Hope you understand, we are dealing with the Word of God and we all must be careful.

    “Paul says that these were all a shadow of the thing to come which was Christ. So when the curtain was torn the Ark physically served as a reminder. The Ark now (again prophecy has the ability to fulfill multiple events at once) is the body of Christ which is spoken of metaphorically as a woman in Revelation and paralleled in with person of Mary specifically in chapter 12. Mary represents the Church as a metaphor I agree. Mary’s assumption I believe is synonymous with the Church being caught up in the clouds.”

    Much better. You’re getting closer to the finish line. I will reply to this on a different comment later on. We are getting somewhere Brendan. The previous interpretations were off the mark thats all.

    “I’m sorry for seeming like I’m changing my position I’m just trying to develop a theology here at the falafel stand. Washing it all down with a nice cold glass of that salty yogurt drink.”

    Thats okay. Its just when you said Jesus had two bodies this constitutes heresy and Lam believed you and was led astray. We have to be careful because a blind view could lead others to destruction.

    • “Paul says that these were all a shadow of the thing to come which was Christ.”

      CORRECT.

      But you must also consider that Christ is not represented in a vacuum. He dwelt in a womb.

      This we both agree on.

      This is the only missing adjustment. He was the Manna from heaven and God, this Manna from heaven resided IN THE ARK which represents Christ dwelling with first MARY and then born to dwell with us all.

      But initially you rejected the idea.

      But you do not reject the fact that Christ resided in Mary yet you still reject that the Ark is Mary with Christ dwelling in Her. That’s the issue at hand. You do not reject Jesus using the bronze serpent as a type of his Crucifixion (Jn 3:14; cf. Nm 21:8-9).

      You do not reject The Passover lamb prefigures the sacrifice of Christ (1 Cor 5:7).

      You do not even reject the parallel between the Holy Spirit overshadowing the ark and the Holy Spirit overshadowing Mary, between the Ark of the Old Covenant as the dwelling place of God and Mary as the new dwelling place of God.

      After a man named Uzzah was struck dead when he touched the ark, David was afraid and said, “How can the ark of the Lord come to me?” He left the ark in the hill country of Judea for three months. We are also told that David danced and leapt in front of the ark and everyone shouted for joy. The house of Obed-edom, which had housed the ark, was blessed, and then David took the ark to Jerusalem (2 Sm 6:9-14).

      Compare David’s story and the ark to Luke’s account of the Visitation:

      In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a city of Judah, and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! And why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold, when the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb leaped for joy. And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.” (Lk 1:39-45)

      Mary arose and went to the hill country of Judea. When David saw the ark he rejoiced and said, “How can the ark of the Lord come to me?” Elizabeth uses almost the same words: “Why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?” Luke is telling us something—drawing our minds back to the Old Testament, showing us a parallel.

      And even when David approached the ark he shouted, danced and leapt in front of the ark. He was wearing an ephod, the clothing of a priest. And likewise, when Mary, the Ark of the New Covenant, approached Elizabeth, John the Baptist leapt in his mother’s womb—and John was from the priestly line of Aaron. Both leapt and danced in the presence of the ark.

      The Ark of the Old Covenant remained in the house of Obed-edom for three months, and Mary remained in the house of Elizabeth for three months. The place that housed the ark for three months was blessed, and in the short paragraph in Luke, Elizabeth uses the word blessed three times.

      Even when the Old Testament ark arrived—as when Mary arrived—they were both greeted with shouts of joy. The word for the cry of Elizabeth’s greeting is a rare Greek word used in connection with Old Testament liturgical ceremonies that were centered around the ark and worship

      The ark returns to its home and ends up in Jerusalem, where God’s presence and glory is revealed in the temple (2 Samuel 6:12; 1 Kings 8:9-11). Mary also returns home and eventually ends up in Jerusalem, where she presents God incarnate in the temple (Luke 1:56; 2:21-22).

      It seems clear that Luke has used typology to reveal something about the place of Mary in salvation history. God used prophets and the Bible to lead us to salvation through Christ, so why is it a sin to see how God used Mary for our salvation?

      “So when the curtain was torn the Ark physically served as a reminder. The Ark now (again prophecy has the ability to fulfill multiple events at once) is the body of Christ”

      Indeed, but it’s the Body of Christ in His Ark. You must take the whole Box, whats in it and what each represents.

      “which is spoken of metaphorically as a woman in Revelation”

      Exactly. But keep in mind, that Revelation point to “the seed of the woman”.

      You might think “well the seed of the woman is Christ”, but continue:

      “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
      Here the seed of the woman are the sons of the WOMAN and these are the ones who “keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
      These obey Christ’s commandments and not only have faith alone. John knew this divide and knew that the true side will see the Ark as “Mother”
      “and paralleled in with person of Mary specifically in chapter 12.”

      You have spoken wisely here.

      “Mary represents the Church as a metaphor I agree.”

      Now you are lighting with wisdom.

      “Mary’s assumption I believe is synonymous with the Church being caught up in the clouds.”

      Now you have spoken by the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

  • No, no and no.

    There is a reason why the Mystery of the Incarnation should remain a mystery because we do not have the ability to understand how the Eternal Christ came from heaven to be born of the Virgin Mary.

    To say Christ had 2 body is to distort Him and a blasphemous statement. The body Christ was born in, grew up in, suffered abuse to the point of death at the Cross, and buried in is the same body Christ walked out of the tomb at His resurrection. It is the same body where Doubting Thomas exclaimed, “My Lord and my God!” It is the same body Christ had as He ascended to be with the Father and will be the same body He will return at the Second Coming.

  • To add to what Walid had said, the Ark also signified God’s presence in Israel. Mary had Jesus, also called Immanuel (meaning God-with-us), who is God Incarnate in her womb.

    Once you accept that Mary is the 2nd and final Ark of the Covenant, you will see how and why the Church developed the theology of Christ’s divinity as it is.

  • Taurnil Oronar

    At this point all I can say is; you are nothing more than like the people before Jesus casted out their demons. You have devolved to ranting and shouting with zero intentions of answering with references why the theme of the article is wrong.

    You rail just like those demons because it appears there is some truth in the article and it burns your soul.

    This is good stuff, Walid. I discovered a few of the things you’ve mentioned on my own doing Bible studies with a Strong’s Concordance, though you’ve gotten way more than I did and pieced it all together beautifully. But what I got and what you got add up to the same thing, and I just love it when God gives His truth to several of His children in a way that confirms it as truth.

    Let’s set the record straight, both the Holy Scriptures and Church History disagrees with you. Here is one of the most read articles, written by Tim Staples(A Catholic Convert), who explains Purgatory backing it with all the scriptural texts in light of Tradition:
    https://www.catholic.com/magazine/online-edition/is-purgatory-in-the-bible

  • Hebrews 13:10 “We have an altar from which those who minister at the tabernacle have no right to eat.”

    Watch how you will now run to the commentaries and twist the Altar to be the Cross by ignoring the word “EAT”. This “eating” is consuming the Eucharist which you very much deny.

    Last I know you needed to deal with Psalm 132:8 when your friend seemed to have changed their mind and you endorsed their previous comment which they retracted and now you are changing the subject and providing a verse without examining the rest of scripture which DOES speak of an Altar where the Jews at the Temple have no right to partake from.

    The use of verses the way you do to serve your position is typical, but one cannot do this while ignoring the other verses which do speak of an Altar for the Eucharist.

    Now please do not come back without interpreting Psalm 132:8 because this is the crux of our subject and not your change of subject.

  • Vinny Zee

    The Joshua 3:15 prophecy I never saw before. Curious Walid, do you think this is why Jesus, when baptized in the Jordan, said he was doing this so that all righteousness would be fulfilled? Was he that was in the Ark come to the Jordan to touch down in it? I’m only thinking out loud at this point. Your other great points I’ve read at various points and studied. This one however is in a totally new realm for me which I must begin digging.

    Also, so great to mention Song of Songs 6:10, but look at 6:9, “One alone is my dove, my perfect one, her mother’s special one …” Song of Songs 6:9 a nice dagger for those that want to deny the immaculate conception of what happened with St. Ann and the birth of Mary.

    • “Curious Walid, do you think this is why Jesus, when baptized in the
      Jordan, said he was doing this so that all righteousness would be
      fulfilled? Was he that was in the Ark come to the Jordan to touch down
      in it?”

      Holy smokes! You are actually right. Christ came to the Jordan River to be baptized yet the Ark, symbolizing God’s presence in Israel, caused the river to part when the priests’ walked into the river.

      • Vinny Zee

        Yes, I am going to have to dig into this one for a while. Joshua is full of the ark, but I never considered its connection to Mary and Jesus in Chapter 3 until reading this article.

        • Jesus allowed Himself to be baptized by the John the Baptist. There is a connection. The Israelites crossed the Jordan River which was impossible because at the time, it was swollen, past its bank, but the moment the Levite priests, carrying the Ark on their shoulders, touched the water’s edge, the river began to recede in obedience to God’s presence.

          THAT’S IT!

          The Israelites crossed the Jordan River to signal it was time for the Israelites to enter the Promised Land. Jesus entered the River and being baptized signaled it was time for a new entrance to the Promised Land.

          BRILLIANT!

          • Vinny Zee

            Amen, the pieces fall into place when we are willing to be open to them. For nearly 30 years I always wondered at why his statement at being baptized, “so that all righteousness may be fulfilled” and other portions of the baptism. I think Joshua 3 gives us that clue to fill in the pieces!

          • Soon you will move from puzzles to digging wells.

            You’re the well digger, I just drink the water. Yes, time to step up my game as a Christian apologist and theologian I guess.

      • Maybe you can explain the riddle I gave Vinny?

        how could Gog and Magog come and then is destroyed to only pop-up a thousand years later?

        Can you explain that riddle? Winner gets to be captain of the ship for a full week while captain scrubs the deck with a tooth brush.

        • “how could Gog and Magog come and then is destroyed to only pop-up a thousand years later?”

          Because it received a fatal head wounds and now is being resurrected before our eyes.

          • Explain Gog in Revelation “after the thousand years were over …”

          • Hmm. That’s where believing Christ will reign with the saints for 1,000 years, a doctrine rejected by Catholics and Orthodox (chilaism, I think it is called), and the Antichrist will be destroyed at His 2nd coming.

            Yet, if Gog and Magog rally the world once more, this time led by the devil himself, it would make sense the devil will go to Turkey and rally the world for one final hurrah.

    • Anytime when water is entered it resembles a “split” a change, what we call in Arabic Fashkh (Pesach) and you can actually read the splitting of Mount Zion in such a fashion to extract much where the crevice is wide and His followers will hide in the valley which reaches to Azal … and thus they hide from the wrath of Antichrist. Baptism is such since we pass from death to life and much can be deduced from all this.

      I used to swim at a place called Fashkha just were the Jordan ravine poured in the Dead Sea. Even the name is still preserved.

      I was planning to expound on this on this Sunday Special but opted to continue where I left off from last week. This Sunday Special I will address the most difficult parts on prophecy. For example, how could Gog and Magog come and then is destroyed to only pop-up a thousand years later?

      Can you explain that riddle Vinny Zee?

    • Kamau41

      Vinny, I have never made that connection before. But, it makes perfect sense. You have given us more to chew on.

  • Amen.

  • Patricia,

    The comment section is the place to brawl with each other and express our differences and it should not become ‘personal’. I have explained this several times. We fight. We argue. We are still friends.

    But to your point, that they gave Mary nothing and they gave everything to ONLY Jesus.

    I have a question:who do you presume received Jesus’ gifts? Did little baby Jesus open His hand and received the gifts?

    Who received the gifts? And who did the wisemen find in the manger? Only Baby Jesus?

    The problem is that you stem from a faulty teaching that loves to use “alone” which makes a lonely Jesus.

    what is definitely wrong and is not in the Bible is to apply the words “alone” and “only” in a haphazard way.

    For example: Is Jesus only man?
    To say “yes” is heresy and it is what Jehovah’s Witnesses and Muslims did.
    Is Jesus only God?

    To say “yes” is also heresy and is what the Monophysite heresy did.

    Monos (only/alone), physis meaning “nature”, so to them Jesus had a single nature; that Jesus is God “alone”.

    And this is why when St Paul speaks frequently of “justification by faith,” he never once referred to the use “alone”.

    So this “lonely Jesus” you paint ain’t the real picture.

    Do you worship Christ alone?
    How about the Holy Spirit alone?
    How about the Father alone?

    I worship Christ and by worshipping Christ I also worship the Father and the Holy Spirit.

    However, we do not WORSHIP MARY. Never.

  • Taurnil Oronar

    Started reading The Book of Wisdom and in Chapter 7, Wisdom is referred to as a woman;


    24
    For Wisdom is mobile beyond all motion,
    and she penetrates and pervades all things by reason of her purity.
    25
    * For she is a breath of the might of God
    and a pure emanation of the glory of the Almighty;
    therefore nothing defiled can enter into her.
    26
    For she is the reflection of eternal light,
    the spotless mirror of the power of God,
    the image of his goodness.

    A couple of brain cells keep firing the name Mary. She was certainly pure, God would have nothing less as the bearer of His Son. Is she the embodiment of wisdom? Or is it the noviceness of my understanding taking me off track?

    Why do I say this? Its because of this “I tried to find similar shock among my fellow congregants but could not.”

    They simply did not care because many of them are ‘lazy servants’.

    There are ones who dig wells and drink and then there are who dig not and thirst.

    You dug wells.

    Indeed I was struck with joy reading your comment.

    Its not just that because you found the way back, but because what you wrote about Antiochus and the Romans is what I was etching about for this Sunday Special report for tomorrow. Hope you get a chance to read it.

    As I always say, there are two types; the first read into the text what the text does not say (these are the damned).
    And there are those who let the text say what it says without reading into it. (these are the saved).

    I also noticed you do not comment much. My wife told me that it is the ones who read and you never hear much from, these are the ones whom you need to consider instead of the antagonists who just love to argue.

    Hope to hear from you. Walid.

  • Parks,

    I have not read the article you speak of. Have you posted it in a comment here?

      Valid I have migrant headaches and am in constant pain … your luther not only was corrected by in in one title but in stealing and bastardizing my comments for the following article . I HAVE many times requested that you allow me to submit an article … Geller / Spencer and others steal my material all the time and the credit is not the worst part the worst part is it contains the clever trappings like ben also took ” more dangerous than isis ” but stripped of its potato meaning and torn out of its specific lie slaying context to be further vague enabling . You have also made comments about waiting till Sunday and Trumps selling 100 Billion with of arms to our worst terrorist enemies who are the Central command of ISIS further proves my points and shows how lost his followers really are , are you going to let me step up onto your stage and swing the sword ? I trust you still have my email send me an email I can maker my submission . I still have no answer from you on these questions and the question of is Muhammad and his first muslim rollers Of radicalized muslim beliefs or of Muslim beliefs ? Many thing I have posted and tried to post here that have been floundered and lost , some censored . By now I would hope you would see that I am not a typical student nor casual student of TRUTH . The longer the truth is suppressed the worse our chances of Recovery will be valid . Please let this light shine and I will devote enormous energy to honing the article into a razor sharp implement for Crusaderdom .

      I’m TALING ABOUT MY THOUGHTS YOUR WRITER SCALPED AND MADE VAGUE after I corrected him on inaccurate title ,too bad you are not as willing to give me a shot as you are to trump who betrays us constantly and Muslims you defend against eradication a accompanied with the ” not every Muslim ” apologist tactic … Somehow addressing reality of our enemies and trators is not the battle of good and evil ?

  • PARKS CURTIS

    christian whose only verse is a false one about people envying him … look how much worse he just made it in Armming outr enemies not only with billions in weapondrty but arming them and proliferating the dangerous self defense defeating lie that our worst enasmies are our best friends .

  • Thank you brother Travis,

    How about I offer you another (very long one) which I think you should parcel and read over seven days (2 thousand words a day keeps the devil away)

  • When you say “coming before Jesus” what do you mean by that?

    I know that the Baptist danced in the womb when His mother encountered St. Mary. David also danced before the Ark.

    But I do not see any parallel as John the Baptist because he came before Jesus is significant that the priests came before the Ark since the Ark was Mary.

    The Pope Kisses the Quran and smells the Exact same lie of ” working with ” the muslim,s and coexistence/ rte4specting satanism trump does … you have an anti Protestant for Catholic bias .. the poe is a fraud just as Trump is if you think the pope represents the Catholic church I would ask that you look at outré common value of ” hate evil ” ” love truth ” as a treasure .

    • filomena seiffert

      No, I only do not like Protestants who attack the Catholic Church, mostly the ignorant ones. The Quran religion was made up by a man who wanted power, a murderer, rapist, perverted child molester, certainly inspired by satan, envious of flourishing Christianity. The people of those times were still very primitive, easy to instill ideas and fear in their minds. Satan think he won, but God will save the Muslims because their obedience thinking they are worshiping and obeying God. God is just, He is not going to punish people who did not have the grace to know Him. Hate is thing of the devil which unique aim is to cause confusion and fights. Pray more for the Holy spirit guidance. One last thing, I think you criticized brother Andre because the miracles he made was attributed to St Joseph. Know you that: if God give power to the ones who love and obey Him on earth, much more so He will give them power in heaven. Simple as that.

      • PARKS CURTIS

        the people of our times are still very primitive … not much has truly changed and the4 ideals of civilization of good manners is in the god of isreals words .. the hate and confusion you speak of is also in all this false focus and division making issues where there really aren’t . i don’t even know what you mean about ” criticized brother Andre because the miracles he made was attributed to St Joseph.” so i pleads not guilty as I am not even aware of this ” miracle ” at all … You mentioned the pope then skipped over that he is smnootchingh the qwuran ands agreeing with trump about ” working with ” the muslims and rainbow dreaswmer coexistence narratives … not seems you completely diverted from what i said to a false accusation of something i didn’t , that seems dishonest on a lot of levels … stay focused on truth ,.

  • You are correct Bhushan, thank you.
