Confession to the Jesuits No. 43: Two More Reasons Why the Vatican is Antichrist

Antichrist is both political, religious and sits on seven hills

In this Confession to the Jesuits No. 43, we explore two more of at least 23 clear-cut reasons given in the Bible why the Vatican can be identified without question as the Antichrist.

Ask why Billy Graham or other high-powered Evangelists ignore these obvious Biblical signs and symbols? Ask why your minister in your Protestant church advocates uniting with Rome and why he backs the war in the Middle East?

The following is presented with the help of www.remnantofgod.org, providing a helpful insight into what the Word of God has to say:

Antichrist is both a political & religious

Revelation 17:3, “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.”

In prophecy, a woman is defined as a church…Jeremiah 6:2 says, “I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman.”

We also understand the Church of Jesus Christ is considered to be the “Bride of Christ” because of many areas of Scriptures that describe her as such. It is also commonly understood that prophecy defines a beast to be a nation.

Daniel 7:17, “These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.”

Daniel 7:23, “Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.”

Even in today’s world, nations are described as beasts? The USA is seen as an eagle. Russia is likened unto a bear, and China even carries the image of a dragon.

Many years ago Daniel was given a great vision about all the nations of the earth till the end of time. In this vision he saw the last beast to be “diverse from all the others.” (Daniel 7:19) But how diverse would it be? According to Revelation 17:3 as we have already seen, this beast will have a woman riding it. Since prophecy defines a woman as a church, and a beast as a nation. Is there such an entity described in history? Is there a church and state mixed together as one someplace today? Yes there is. Only one place on earth has ever done this. The Vatican of the Roman Catholic church.

Antichrist has his church & state sit on 7 hills

Revelation 17:3, “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.”

Now before I define these seven heads I would like to remind you that I am not giving my “private interpretation” of this prophetic symbol. The Word of God states we are never to do this. (See 2Peter 1:20) According to Revelation, that beast the woman is sitting on, that we already defined as the Vatican church & state conglomerate, will have seven heads. But how does prophecy define those seven heads? Look just a few verses lower to find out. The Angel that is showing John this vision actually tells him point blank what those heads actually mean.

Revelation 17:9, “And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”

Looking into the STRONG’S CONCORDANCE, how is that word “mountains” defined?

STRONG’S # 3735

Mountain:
3735 oros {or’-os} probably from an obsolete oro (to rise or “rear”, perhaps akin to 142, cf 3733); TDNT – 5:475,732; n n
AV – mountain 41, mount 21, hill 3; 65

So the word “mountain” can also be translated out as a hill. Is there a church and state sitting on seven hills somewhere on this world?

“It is within the city of Rome, called The City on Seven Hills, that the entire area of Vatican State Proper is now confined” The Catholic Encyclopedia, p. 529.

~”Geography.about.com” website answers the query… “What are the seven hills of Rome?”
Rome is known to be built upon seven hills. Rome was said to have been founded when Romulus and Remus, twin sons of Mars, ended up at the foot of the hill Palatine and founded the city. The other six hills are Capitoline (the seat of government), Quirinal, Viminal, Esquiline, Caelian, and Aventine.

ENCYCLOPÆDIA BRITANNICA
Query ~ Seven Hills of Rome

“…group of hills on or about which the ancient city of Rome was built. The original city of Romulus was built upon Palatine Hill (#1) (Latin: Mons Palatinus). The other hills are the Capitoline,(#2) Quirinal, (#3) Viminal,(#4) Esquiline,(#5) Caelian,(#6) and Aventine (#7) (known respectively in Latin as the Mons Capitolinus, Mons Quirinalis, Mons Viminalis, Mons Esquilinus, Mons Caelius, and Mons Aventinus).” -http://www.britannica.com/seo/s/seven-hills-of-rome/

Understand first that Daniel 7:23 tells us this Beast will be “diverse from all kingdoms.” How diverse you ask? As we define the prophetic symbols we understand this woman that is sitting on the beast is actually a church and a NATION combined. It is what Daniel said. There will be a kingdom that will arise that will be TOTALLY DIFFERENT than any other kingdom that ever existed on Earth. The Vatican fits this perfectly! Never was there a nation that was both a nation and a church that the same time! NEVER! And even if there was, did it have SEVEN HILLS to sit on as we see Rome Italy has being doing since its inception? Do a search online for “SEVEN HILLS’ and you will see numerous pages with maps of the city of ROME!
